EU To Work With Russia And Ukraine To Address Moscow's Concerns

The EU will work with officials in Kiev and Ukraine in order to mitigate problems that will occur as Ukraine adopts European Union standards. RFE/RL reports:

The European Union, Russia, and Ukraine on July 11 agreed to set up a consultation mechanism to address Russian concerns about Ukraine's Association Agreement signed with the EU last month.

Under the consultation mechanism, Russian will circulate a list of precise concerns or potential risks it feels might affect its economy as a result of the EU’s June 20 deal with Ukraine.

Experts from the three sides will try during the summer to find solutions to problems presented by Moscow that are related to technical regulations, standards, and customs.

The experts are to present a final report no later than September 1.

An Entire Armored Convoy Destroyed By Rebel GRAD Rockets
The damage in today's GRAD missile attack appears to be significant:

According to Unian, a mechanized brigade in the 11th division was deployed 17 kilometers south-east of Rovenky (map), That could put the convoy less than 10 kilometers from the Russian border. According to the report, the GRAD rockets were launched from a distance of 15 kilometers. 19 were killed and 93 were injured. "Information about the destruction of the BM-21 GRAD is being checked."

Other reports suggest that upwards of 30 were killed.  We are awaiting a more official statement from Ukraine's government. Vladislav Seleznyev, spokesman for the ATO, says that such a statement is in the works:

"The fact is that fighters were firing from Grads outside of Zelenopillya [Zelenopolye] -- yes, there are losses on our side, the details will come later and most likely will be at the highest level," he said.

Euronews has amazing video reportedly showing the strike, and carries this report:

The Ukrainian military says 23 of its soldiers and border guards have been killed after pro-Russian separatists firing Grad rockets attacked a border post in the Luhansk region.

If confirmed, it represents a major escalation in the conflict. Earlier, an official gave an even higher number of victims but this has been denied.

The military also said five miners had been killed and ten wounded in a rebel attack on a bus near Donetsk.

“A school and four apartment buildings were destroyed and a power plant was damaged after terrorists fired at the town of Chervonopartyzansk. One of the shells hit the bus carrying miners,” said Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for the Ukrainian National Security and Defence Council.

Ukraine Shuts Off Pirate Russian News Broadcasts In Recaptured Towns

When the Russian-backed separatists took over Kramatorsk, Mariupol, and Slavyansk, they captured TV and radio broadcast channels, shut them off, and replaced their signals with Russian state-operated TV and radio signals. Now that Ukraine has recaptured those towns they have shut off the Russian broadcasts and once again replaced them with Ukrainian news.

Ukraine's new President Petro Poroshenko says that this is part of a plan to restore these towns to normal, but also to ensure that accurate information is being reported in eastern Ukraine (translated by The Interpreter):

"The population of Donbass requires truthful information about Ukraine," the president emphasized. "We cannot allow the distortion of facts in informing people about the course of events in Lugansk and Donetsk regions."
