Kill some – offer power “sharing” to some but not all to split opposition – all the usual steps by a wannabe dictator or shill for Russia.
(Kiev) – One of the leaders of Kiev’s protest movement has been missing since January 22, 2014. Dmitri Bulatov, 35, is the third protest activist who has disappeared in the past week. Human Rights Watch called on Ukrainian authorities to urgently undertake a thorough investigation to locate him and ensure his safety and well-being.

Vitamin D supplements provide little – if any – health benefits, a study shows.
The Auckland University report analysed multiple existing studies focused on the effects of vitamin D.
It found they failed to reduce the risk of heart attacks, strokes, cancer or bone fractures in the general population by more than 15 per cent.
Vitamin D supplements are commonly associated with better health and the prevention of various medical conditions. However, an emerging body of research is beginning to debunk these beliefs.
A study published last month in The Lancet Diabetes & Endocrinology journal concluded low levels of vitamin D were a result, rather than a cause, of ill-health.
The latest study, led by Dr Mark Bolland from the university\’s Department of Medicine, analysed comparisons of individuals who took calcium with their vitamin D supplements and those who didn\’t. Calcium is essential for healthy bones and teeth.
Some of Bolland\’s research indicates an increased risk of hip fractures with vitamin D supplementation.
It follows studies that showed vitamin D supplements made no difference in preventing osteoporosis in most healthy adults.
