Ukraine war: Kyiv security service sanctions 10 pro-Russian Orthodox priests | Euronews


The Russian Orthodox Church in Ukraine severed its ties to the pro-Kremlin Moscow Patriarchate earlier in the war.

============================================

Religion has led to many conflicts, many in the name of Christianity, which in every way goes against the teachings of Christianity.

In fact, Chrisianity has been the cause of many invasions and not all military over many years, too many years and has led to much cruelty. You only have to look at the Missionaries invasion of Africa to see this, all in the name of spreading the ‘Word’, but it led to the plunder of many riches, gold, diamonds and human trafficing to the Americas, thereby extending ‘slavery’ and the deaths of many Africian slaves in the transporting to the Americas and on the plantations of the West Indies and Southern States of America.

After all some in the Southern States of America would welcome slavery to return.

But really, we are all human beings and there should be no reason why we all can’t live in peace together, but there is major coruption and  too much power in certain areas and with individuals.

Much more equality is what is needed and the respect of human rights.

Macron blasted for saying Moscow needs ‘security guarantees’ to end the Ukraine war | Euronews


His comments on French TV on Saturday have already drawn criticism from some quarters.

============================================

It is not Putin and Russia that nrrds guarantees but all the countries that border Russia for no country is safe while Putin is President and who knows who comes after him.

But Ukraine has had guarantees previously and Putin ignored them.

Putin and Macron have to understand that NATO is a defensive alliance and will not attack any country unless a NATO member country has been attacked.

So Russia has no problems with NATO only Putin.

Putin needs to get all his forces out of Ukraine and keep them only in Russia.

Yes, defensive weapons may be deployed to face Russia, but that is because no one trusts Russia or exactly those in power in Russia has history has shown. These weapons would never be used if Russian forces or its weapons were retained in Russia, even better if Russia was completely disarmed as Germany was after WWII, until it learned its lesson.

NATO meets to talk Ukraine at scene of one of its most controversial decisions | Euronews


In 2008, NATO promised that Ukraine and Georgia could join the western military alliance. Russia invaded the latter four months later.

============================================

We all know that Russia can’t be trusted and even more the Russian President Vladimir Putin. For it is his sole wish to not only recreate the Soviet Union, but the Russian Empire.

So, while Putin is around no country in the previous Eastern Europe is safe from Russian invasion, so everyting needs to be done to safeguard the independence of all countries.

Many of these countries are now members of NATO and many others wish to join, but NATO is there as a defensive organisation not as an aggressive one, so all Putin needs  to do is leave every independent country alone and not invade anyone on the pretext that he is safeguarding Russia from NATO invasion, which will not ever occur unless Putin instructs his forces to invade first.

This he did with Crechnia, Georgia, Crimea and now East Ukraine, now none of these areas were in NATO although some wished to be, so Putin got in first or so he thought, but his last invasion could well be his undoing for Ukraine was not going to let Putin’s invasion of East Ukraine without challenging, with the help of Western arms aid, but not Western forces. This aid needs to be continued and much increased to safeguard further invasions by Putin. For if Putin suceeds in the invasion and defeats Ukraine, it will not be long before he embarks on further conquests. So, it is more than essential that the aid is continued and be greatly increased, as Putin only understands power, previously his own assumed power, but now the power of the West in supporting Ukraine with weapons.

He knows he and Russia is no match for the combined West and he will go to any lengths to undermine the West. The West have no wish to harm Russia, but while Russia is controlled by Putin they have no choice and that is why sanctions have been imposed, but they will never invade Russia, unless Putin is foolish and he starts to invade a country in the NATO alliance.

Yes, he could instigate a Nuclear Strike, but, if he does this would immediately trigger a Western Nuclear Strike against Russia, from which Russia would never recover from, so Putin would then be responsible for the annihilation of Russia, which he has no wish to be.

So, the West needs to continue supporting Ukraine with arms to push Russian troops out of all Ukraine and that will be Putin’s humiliation and his eventual downfall. But when this occurs Russia will still have to be watched for whom will be the new President of Russia, lets hope not another aggressor like Putin.

But it is not just the Russian invasion of Ukraine, for there are many war crimes being found in the formerly Russian occupied parts of East Ukraine, which have been done to Ukrainian residents by Russian forces.

So, it is not just the defeat of Russian forces in Ukraine, but the prosecution of those Russian forces responsible for commiting the war crimes which has to be dealt with, with the final responsibilty down to the Russian President Vladimir Putin.

World Cup: Outrage amid claims Qatar to ban kosher food and Jewish public prayer – The Jewish Chronicle


Why is anyone surprised for Qatar no promises can be expected to be kept, there fooled FIFA to allocate the games to them and now the true Qatar is surfacing, perhaps not the population, but certainly the views of the ruling family.

Go there at your own risk, but as countries go they are not alone, when any events are planned on any country many factors should be taken into consideration, their, laws, Human Rights record, their tolerance or intolerance and many others, not just their ability to fund the event or perhaps funding the allocating organisation.

The allocation should be open to inspection.

Texas man charged with killing two nurses opened fire while his girlfriend was giving birth | Daily Mail Online


Nestor Oswaldo Hernandez, 30, who opened fire at Methodist Dallas Medical Center in Texas on Saturday – killing two nurses – was on parole for aggravated at the time of the shooting.

 

 

===========================================

Well this just shows the state America is in, but the gun culture rules Supreme.

If the gun culture was not how it is and it was more difficult to obtain firearms the 2 nurses would still be alive today, but they are not purely down to the American gun culture.

I don’t expect this to change for the better, as it will only get worse, as the NRA and those in support of guns will just say more guns are needed and most likely say the 2 nurses should have been ‘carrying’.

So is the whole idea that everyone in America carries, what about children, for why should they be left undefended. Will it come that as soon a child is born a gun will be given to them, ludicous but, not that ludicous as the gun policy.

Sky News: Ukraine war: Eleven volunteer soldiers killed in Russian military firing range shooting, Kremlin ministry of defence says


https://news.sky.com/story/ukraine-war-eleven-volunteer-soldiers-killed-in-russian-military-firing-range-shooting-kremlin-ministry-of-defence-says-12721651

Putin is continuing to lose on all fronts, when will the Russian population come to realise that the only enemy of Russia is their own President Vladimir Putin. He is the only cause for the Russian troops being killed and the increasing criticism of Russian activities in Ukraine.

The once believed respect for Russia is continuing to be eroded and Putin is totally to blame for this. His unnecessary and totally unfounded invasion of Ukraine should never have taken place. But Putin’s total control of the Russian media means that the Russian population are being forced fed totally unproven and extremely incorrect information regarding Ukraine and its actions towards Russian supporting residents in Ukraine.

But by Putin’s illegal invasion of Ukraine it is so much more likely that Ukraine will become a member of NATO as will other countries bordering Russia who are currently not NATO members.

As to Putin’s threats to ‘nuke’ Ukrainian troops attacking illegal Russian troops in Ukraine should this occur it will also mean that nearby areas of Russia will also be affected by nuclear contamination thereby inflicting more Russian deaths, that will be Putin’s eventual epitaph, as the only Russian President to inflict nuclear contamination and deaths onto Russians.

The Russian population needs to urgently be enlightened that they are in very grave danger from Putin. For the sake of sanity Russia and it’s population need to be safeguarded for their own protection. Their enemy is not Ukraine and the West, but their very own President Vladimir Putin and his Kremlin supporters.

There are terrorists in Russia, but they are President Vladimir Putin and his Kremlin associates.

The Human Rights of Russians are not being respected by their own President Vladimir Putin.

Trump says ‘temperature has to be brought down’ after Mar-a-Lago search | The Hill


Former President Trump said on Monday that his aides reached out to the Department of Justice (DOJ) to offer “whatever we can do to help,” saying the “temperature has to be brought down”…

============================================

Not often, I agree with Trump but on this occasion I do, but it is what needs and has to be done on what we differ.

Yes, his ‘ aides reached out to the Department of Justice (DOJ) to offer “whatever we can do to help’, but his aides are looking in the wrong direction and wrong people, for Trump’s aides should be looking at Trump to reach out to help the Department of Justice (DOJ) and he, himself, Trump do all he can to help. In doing so he needs to stop ‘pleading the 5th‘ and provide all the DOJ wish him to do, even though it is something he has never done.

He needs to see himself for what he is a ‘failure’, and control his undesirable attributes of misogynistic, racist and many more.

His main successes in business is being made bankrupt 4-6 times, which should mean he is a business failure, but he appears to believe being made bankrupt a business success.

His major, forthcoming success could well be, being to be the only president to be convicted to be a criminal and serve at least one prison sentence.

The Essential: Afghan singer says his country ‘no longer means anything’ after the Taliban chased him out


News as it is and not as put forward by the Government and essentially, the Home Secretary Priti Patel MP in that she believes the evacuation from Afghanistan was a success, rather than a failure, especially for those who were not evacuated or refused evacuation. In her ‘Ivory Tower’, otherwise The Home Office, reality is not as it is.

The many 100s of thousands left behind to suffer at the hands of the Taliban shows how much of a failure it was. But, some of the blame has to be paced at the door of Trump, in his complete capitulation to the Taliban, surely, even he could not trust the Taliban, but it appears he did, or is it he didn’t really care for he would no longer be the ruling President when it took place. For he took the glory, when, in fact, there was no glory to take, but then, whenever did that bother Trump.

He was a complete disaster from the start and all are suffering from the consequences for some time to come, 4 years of utter disaster and more.

His crimes know no bounds.

UK faces ‘significant risks’ to quality of food imported post-Brexit, says report | Food & drink industry | The Guardian


Better controls on EU goods needed as impact of Covid and Russia-Ukraine war also put pressure on standards

============================================

This is very confusing, for the UK and the DUP is very concerned about border checks being imposed by the EU on goods coming from Mainland UK to Northern Ireland regarding quality, when this article is virtually stating that Border checks should be being imposed by the UK on goods coming to all of the UK from the EU as some could be sub-standard to UK regulations. This is very worrying for all the time the UK was in the EU and within the ‘Single Market’, so no real border checks, so, once again, we appear to have been badly let down by Tony Blair with his insistence of the UK becoming part of the EU through the Maastricht Treaty without any referendum..

But ‘Teflon’ Tony strikes again, so he gets away with it again.

US oil refineries spewing cancer-causing benzene into communities, report finds | Pollution | The Guardian


Analysis shows alarming level of benzene at fence-line of facilities in Texas, Louisiana, Pennsylvania, Indiana and US Virgin Islands

===========================================

This is not only exceedingly alarming, but shows incompetence and should be seen to be a criminal liability. One instance is one too many, but one could be seen as a mistake, but another not so and a considerable fine should be imposed. Then, if there is a third then the establishment should be closed permanently.

Then to see that these are occurring in close proximality to residential areas means that the existing exposure levels need to be tightened and why should those being exposed be largely people of colour and of low-income.

I am sure if this was occurring in close proximality to the ‘White House’ not even one exposure would have been allowed. So, the safety levels do need to be examined and be revised so no exposures occur, and if not possible the establishments need to be permanently closed or moved to non-residential areas, for surely America is more than large enough to accommodate this.
