Note that on July 24 the same streets of Mariupol Donbass guerrillas were shot the first two of the number of American military experts.
Recall, last week it became known that the Ukraine arrived 180 U.S. Army trainers representing the Rangers, airmobile forces and specialists to restore aviation. Many of them have recently been intensively studied Ukrainian language.
Arrived in Kiev July 23 American officers and NCOs assigned to the Fort Benning base in the states of Alabama and Georgia, and obey the command of the Force Special Operations Command and the training and development of the military doctrines of the U.S. Armed Forces.
Most instructors have experience in training military personnel in Central and South America, which was held in the framework of the military-industrial and military cooperation.
A direct leadership Ukrainian law enforcers Pentagon sent Maj. Gen. Randy Allen Key , Head of policy, strategy and partnership opportunities for European command of U.S. forces. July 21 he started to work, coordinating of 12 working groups, which are intended to "improve the security of Ukraine." Under the leadership of the Pentagon's general these working groups discussed including the fighting in the south-east.
But immediately after the arrival to Ukraine American "military experts" began to suffer losses.
As mentioned above, the first two "instructors" were killed July 24 in Mariupol Mariupol during a successful military action conducted by local guerrillas.
Four of these were U.S. military militias burned July 28 during a battle near Dubrovka. As the chief of the armed forces of the People's Republic of Donetsk (DNI) Igor Gunmen killed among Ukrainian law enforcers were blacks.
"Under attack Marinovka militias reflected the height of 198.3. During this battle destroyed four tanks, four armored personnel carriers. All of them were burned. Among those killed are people blacks. Militia commander is ready to provide for the filming of the corpses "- told Shooters.
Another day later, on Tuesday, July 29 in social networks reported: "In the area of intelligence and Raisins subversive group (RDG) militia attacked a convoy of U.S. military trainers. killed three American officers and wounded General Key Randy Allen, who commands the punitive operation ".
Given adviser, who was shot on the beach snvyperom Mariupol August 30, about 180 guests to Ukraine U.S. military has killed 10. And this for a full week.
These unexpected losses led to the fact that half of the instructors has already requested a home, and the others agree to continue their mission only away from the front lines.
Commercial reserves of shale gas in Ukraine are not foundPublication Date: July 28, 2014 at 13:13.

And in fact shale gas deposits, which, according to U.S. data, the Ukraine, allegedly enough to at least compensate for the delivery of "Gazprom", many call the main cause of the conflict in the south-east of Ukraine.
Ukrainian media assert that Russia unleashed war in Donbas, not to be missed "rich shale deposits" on the border of Kharkiv and Donetsk regions. Russia accused of this, despite the fact that even before the outbreak of civil war in the south-east there already in all wells drilled workers British-Dutch company Shell, won the tender for production back in 2012.
And in 2013 signed a production sharing agreement between Ukraine and the companies «Shell» and «Nadra Hughes." But now, in July 201 4 years suddenly found out that share something and nothing. In two wells that were made during the exploration on a plot of 7886 square kilometers, the industrial gas was not found. Initially, of course, assumed that the wells will be three, but at the moment of frozen and chairman of the board "Ukrhazvydobuvannia" said the company «Shell» has not yet decided whether to continue the search for shale gas in Ukraine now troubled areas, or time to make sail.
Yet it should be clarified shale gas deposits (again according to the U.S.), in Ukraine there are not only there, where now there is a war. Under assumptions of Americans, there are also large deposits in the west of the country. They occupy 6324 square kilometers and covers part of Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk and Ternopil regions. There, according to U.S. experts, may be hiding 7 trillion cubic meters of gas. But while this is just speculation, because there is no geological survey was conducted, and the plausibility of these versions until serious doubt.
But, anyway, it is now clear that the history of oil shale "revolution" in Ukraine is gradually turning into a story about shale "bluff." And the only country where shale gas is produced on an industrial scale are still the only U.S.. And if before U.S. and international industrialists stuffed with tales that on the exhaustion of U.S. stocks, it will be possible to start extracting the resource in other countries, Poland, Ukraine, China, now these prospects seem very, very questionable.
