Everything is getting hotter in Ukraine. Alexander Turchynov is speaking of martial law. Pavel Sheremet was murdered in Kiev. The situation in Donbass has escalated. Meanwhile, Minister of Internal Affairs head Avakov has left on vacation. So has Kiev Mayor Klitchko. And not only them.
As sources in the Ukrainian Ministry of Transport have relayed to PolitNavigator, on July 22nd in the late evening, a private Golfstream 200 plane (tail number T7-PRM) with President Poroshenko on board departed Kiev International Airport for Malaga, Spain. As Ukrainian media have repeatedly written, Poroshenko has a villa near Malaga.
The president’s departure and his absence in the capital have not been publicized. The President, however, is even issuing instructions from his Spanish estate. On Monday, for example, he instructed the Prime Minister and Mayor of Kiev to strengthen security measures for public safety. 
The question remains: why have Ukrainian leaders suddenly decided to leave Ukraine? So far, there has been no answer. 
Poroshenko calls Merkel about Donbass from vacation yacht in Norway

New details have been revealed to PolitNavigator concerning the overseas trip of Poroshenko which the Ukrainian president is trying to hide out of fear of displeasing the population with his luxurious vacation during wartime.
On Saturday, the press service of President Poroshenko reported that the head of state held telephone talks with Angela Merkel, during which both sides agreed to intensify work in the Normandy format. Poroshenko also complained about the escalation of hostilities in Donbass, blaming, as always, Russia and the self-proclaimed republics.
This story is a spicy one given that the president discussed these important points while being thousand of kilometers away from Ukraine and warring Donbass.
Poroshenko, his family, and the family of his oldest son flew from Malaga, Spain to Bergen, Norway on Monday. They enjoyed a yacht cruise, fished, and admired the Northern landscape. In such circumstances, of course, words of concern regarding an escalation in Donbass hardly ring sincere. Meanwhile, however, Poroshenko has chosen to comfortably sit out the dangerous day of the Holy Procession for Peace, Prayer, and Love in Kiev.
Poroshenko returns to Kiev on Wednesday-Thursday night presumably on board a Cessna Citation Jet (CJ3) operated by Air Hamburg with tail number D-CJET (flight number: AHO488V).
