  1. Kabul, Afghanistan
    CNN

    A suicide bomb attack on an education center in Kabul has killed at least 23 people, most of whom are believed to be young women, in the latest sign of the deteriorating security situation in the Afghan capital.

    The explosion took place on Friday at the Kaaj education center, in a predominantly Hazara neighborhood – an ethnic minority group that has long faced oppression.

    Students were taking a practice university entrance exam at 7:30 a.m., local time (11 p.m. ET) when the blast first took place, Kabul Police Spokesman Khalid Zadran told CNN.

    Abdu Ghayas Momand, a doctor from Ali Jinah Hospital, where some of the victims have been taken, said 23 people had been killed and 36 more injured.

  3. (Tribune News Service) — A Baltimore anesthesiologist and her Army major spouse were federally indicted Wednesday in an alleged conspiracy to disclose health information to the Russian government to assist its war in Ukraine.

    Dr. Anna Gabrielian, 36, and Jamie Lee Henry, 39 and also a medical doctor, face eight counts, including conspiracy and wrongful disclosure of individually identifiable health information. The indictment was filed in U.S. District Court.

    Records at the Maryland Board of Physicians show Gabrielian and Henry’s primary practices are at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The indictment, however, said at the time of the alleged conspiracy Henry was a staff internist stationed at Fort Bragg, an Army installation in North Carolina and home of U.S. Army Special Operations Command where Henry had secret-level security clearance.

  4. Ottawa Mayor Jim Watson’s office would not return a call from the Parliamentary Protective Service during the height of the “Freedom Convoy,” its acting director told a committee Thursday evening.

    Larry Brookson, the acting director of the service, told members of Parliament and senators during a joint committee hearing that he attempted to reach out to Watson and Ottawa’s city manager during the protests that occupied downtown Ottawa for three weeks in February.

    But he said he received responses from both of their offices that they weren’t available to talk.

    Brookson added that the mayor’s office did not communicate with the protective service, which is responsible for security on Parliament Hill, about a failed deal between the city and convoy organizers to bring the protest to a negotiated end during its height.

      Zelensky has announced Kyiv will hold no negotiations with Russia while Putin is President and that he is applying for full NATO membership today for Ukraine

      https://twitter.com/JackPosobiec/status/1575853498377580544

      =====================================
      Ukraine is submitting an application for an expedited NATO membership.

      That’s according to the latest address to the nation, released by President Volodymyr Zelensky of Ukraine.

      “Ukrainians! And all our friends and allies!

      De facto allies.

      Today, here in Kyiv, in the heart of our country, we are taking a decisive step for the security of the entire community of free nations.

      We see who threatens us. Who is ready to kill and maim. Who in order to expand their zone of control does not stop at any savagery.

      On February 24, the first full-scale attack on Ukraine was carried out. The first!

      Russia would not have stopped at our borders if we had not stopped it. Other states would have been under attack.

      The Baltic countries, Poland, Moldova and Georgia, Kazakhstan… Russia claimed to subjugate various nations of Europe and Asia.

      Claimed six months ago.

      This criminal ambition is breaking down in Ukraine.

      It was broken down in the suburbs of Kyiv and Chernihiv. In “Azovstal”. In the Sumy region and Kharkiv region.

      On Zmiinyi Island.

      It will be broken down in Donbas and in the south of Ukraine when we liberate them. Definitely – in Crimea, in the free Ukrainian Crimea.

      The entire territory of our country will be liberated from this enemy – the enemy not only of Ukraine, but also of life itself, humanity, law and truth.

      Russia already knows this. It feels our power.

      It sees that it is here, in Ukraine, that we prove the strength of our values.

      And that is why it is in a hurry. Organizes this farce with the attempted annexation. Tries to steal something that does not belong to it. Wants to rewrite history and redraw borders with murders, torture, blackmail and lies.

      Ukraine will not allow that.

      Today I held a meeting of the Staff of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief. The meeting of the National Security and Defense Council has just ended.

      We have a decision.

      First – it is only the path of strengthening Ukraine and ousting the occupiers from our entire territory that restores peace.

      We will complete this path.

      Second – Ukraine was and remains a leader in negotiation efforts. It was our state that always offered Russia to reach an agreement on coexistence on equal, honest, decent and fair terms.

      It is obvious that this is impossible with this Russian president.

      He does not know what dignity and honesty are.

      Therefore, we are ready for a dialogue with Russia, but already with another president of Russia.

      And third – we must de jure record everything we have already achieved de facto.

      It is in Ukraine that the fate of democracy in the confrontation with tyranny is being decided.

      It is here, with the firmness of our state borders, that we can secure the firmness of the borders of all European states. We can guarantee that no one else will dare to bring war back to our continent.

      It is here, in Ukraine, that the values of our Euro-Atlantic community have obtained real vital energy. The strength of the nation that fights for freedom, and the strength of the nations that help in this fight.

      We are de facto allies. This has already been achieved.

      De facto, we have already completed our path to NATO.

      De facto, we have already proven interoperability with the Alliance’s standards, they are real for Ukraine – real on the battlefield and in all aspects of our interaction.

      We trust each other, we help each other and we protect each other. This is what the Alliance is.

      De facto. Today, Ukraine is applying to make it de jure. Under a procedure consistent with our significance for the protection of our entire community. Under an accelerated procedure.

      We know it’s possible. We have seen Finland and Sweden start accession to the Alliance this year without a Membership Action Plan.

      This is fair.

      This is also fair for Ukraine.

      This is the consolidation at the level of the treaty of what has already been achieved in life and what are our values.

      We understand that this requires the consensus of all members of the Alliance. We understand that it is necessary to reach such a consensus. And therefore, while this is happening, we offer to implement our proposals regarding security guarantees for Ukraine and all of Europe in accordance with the Kyiv Security Compact, which was developed and presented to our partners.

      Security has no alternatives.

      But determination is needed to guarantee it.

      We are taking our decisive step by signing Ukraine’s application for accelerated accession to NATO.”

    • NYT – Russia-Ukraine War

      Putin Frames Illegal Annexation as Part of Existential Battle With West

      Putin’s speech on annexation paints a stark picture of a face-off with the West.

      President Vladimir V. Putin on Friday asserted that four Ukrainian regions would become part of Russia and decried the United States for “Satanism” and “neocolonial hegemony” in a speech that marked a new escalation in Moscow’s seven-month war against Ukraine and positioned Russia, in newly stark terms, as fighting an existential battle with the West.

      Speaking to hundreds of Russian lawmakers and governors in a grand Kremlin hall, Mr. Putin said that the residents of the four regions — which are still partially controlled by Ukrainian forces — would become Russia’s citizens “forever.” He then held a signing ceremony with the Russian-installed heads of those four regions to start the official annexation process, before clasping hands with them and chanting “Russia! Russia!”

      Even by Mr. Putin’s increasingly confrontational standards, it was an extraordinary speech, mixing riffs against Western attitudes on gender identity with an appeal to the world to see Russia as the leader of an uprising against American power.

      “Not only do Western elites deny national sovereignty and international law,” he said in the 37-minute address. “Their hegemony has a pronounced character of totalitarianism, despotism and apartheid.”

      Western leaders have condemned Russia’s annexations as illegal, and the “referendums’’ that preceded them — purporting to show local support for joining Russia — as fraudulent. The Biden administration has threatened new sanctions if the Kremlin moved ahead with its claims.

      Ukraine’s government has rebuffed Mr. Putin’s claims and vowed to retake territory captured by Russia in the east and south. Even as Mr. Putin spoke, Ukrainian officials said their army had encircled the Russian-occupied town of Lyman, a strategically important hub in the Donetsk region that lies inside the territory Mr. Putin is claiming.

      Still, Mr. Putin insisted that Russia’s position on annexing the four territories was nonnegotiable, adding that the country would defend them “with all the forces and means at our disposal.”

      “I call on the Kyiv regime to immediately cease fire and all military action,” he said, and for the Ukrainian government “to return to the negotiating table.”

      “But we will not discuss the decision of the people of Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson,” he went on, referring to the four Ukrainian regions being annexed. “It has been made. Russia will not betray it.”

      Mr. Putin cast the conflict with the West in even more severe terms than in previous speeches, reeling off centuries of Western military actions to denounce the American-led world order as fundamentally evil, corrupt and set on Russia’s destruction.

      “The repression of freedom is taking on the outlines of a ‘reverse religion,’ of real Satanism,” Mr. Putin said, asserting that liberal Western values on matters like gender identity amounted to a “denial of man.”

      But Mr. Putin offered few new details on the matter that is now perhaps of greatest concern in Western capitals — whether, and at what point, he may be prepared to use weapons of mass destruction to force Ukraine to capitulate. His spokesman said earlier in the day that after the annexation of the four regions — a move that no other country has said it will recognize — an attack on those regions would be treated as an attack on Russia.

      Without saying so directly, Mr. Putin hinted that the role of nuclear weapons in war is on his mind. Describing the West as “deceitful and hypocritical through and through,” Mr. Putin noted that the United States was the only country to have used nuclear weapons in war. He then added: “By the way, they created a precedent.”

      Mr. Putin’s speech was appealing to three key audiences. To Russians, he was seeking to justify the expanding hardship his war has been causing by insisting they were fighting for their survival. To the West, he worked to telegraph his determination that he was unbowed by sanctions or arms deliveries to Ukraine, and would keep fighting — with the veiled threat of Russia’s enormous nuclear arsenal in the background.

      And to the rest of the world, Mr. Putin sought to cast himself as the leader of a global movement against the “Western racists” he claimed were imposing American hegemony upon the world. The West, he claimed, had not changed from the centuries past in which it brutally colonized impoverished countries and fought wars to gain economic advantage.

      Western countries, he insisted, had “no moral right” to condemn the annexation of parts of Ukraine.

      “The Western elites remain colonizers as they always were,” Mr. Putin said. “They have divided the world into their vassals — the so-called ‘civilized countries’ — and everyone else.”

        Signing of treaties on accession of Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and Zaporozhye and Kherson regions to Russia

        A ceremony for signing the treaties on the accession of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Lugansk People’s Republic, the Zaporozhye Region and the Kherson Region to the Russian Federation took place in of the Grand Kremlin Palace’s St George Hall.

        President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Citizens of Russia, citizens of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics, residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, deputies of the State Duma, senators of the Russian Federation,

        As you know, referendums have been held in the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions. The ballots have been counted and the results have been announced. The people have made their unequivocal choice.

        Today we will sign treaties on the accession of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Lugansk People’s Republic, Zaporozhye Region and Kherson Region to the Russian Federation. I have no doubt that the Federal Assembly will support the constitutional laws on the accession to Russia and the establishment of four new regions, our new constituent entities of the Russian Federation, because this is the will of millions of people. (Applause.)

        It is undoubtedly their right, an inherent right sealed in Article 1 of the UN Charter, which directly states the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples.

        I repeat, it is an inherent right of the people. It is based on our historical affinity, and it is that right that led generations of our predecessors, those who built and defended Russia for centuries since the period of Ancient Rus, to victory.

        Here in Novorossiya, [Pyotr] Rumyantsev, [Alexander] Suvorov and [Fyodor] Ushakov fought their battles, and Catherine the Great and [Grigory] Potyomkin founded new cities. Our grandfathers and great-grandfathers fought here to the bitter end during the Great Patriotic War.

        We will always remember the heroes of the Russian Spring, those who refused to accept the neo-Nazi coup d’état in Ukraine in 2014, all those who died for the right to speak their native language, to preserve their culture, traditions and religion, and for the very right to live. We remember the soldiers of Donbass, the martyrs of the “Odessa Khatyn,” the victims of inhuman terrorist attacks carried out by the Kiev regime. We commemorate volunteers and militiamen, civilians, children, women, senior citizens, Russians, Ukrainians, people of various nationalities; popular leader of Donetsk Alexander Zakharchenko; military commanders Arsen Pavlov and Vladimir Zhoga, Olga Kochura and Alexei Mozgovoy; prosecutor of the Lugansk Republic Sergei Gorenko; paratrooper Nurmagomed Gadzhimagomedov and all our soldiers and officers who died a hero’s death during the special military operation. They are heroes. (Applause.) Heroes of great Russia. Please join me in a minute of silence to honour their memory.

        (Minute of silence.)

        Thank you.

        Behind the choice of millions of residents in the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics, in the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, is our common destiny and thousand-year history. People have passed this spiritual connection on to their children and grandchildren. Despite all the trials they endured, they carried the love for Russia through the years. This is something no one can destroy. That is why both older generations and young people – those who were born after the tragic collapse of the Soviet Union – have voted for our unity, for our common future.

        In 1991 in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, representatives of the party elite of that time made a decision to terminate the Soviet Union, without asking ordinary citizens what they wanted, and people suddenly found themselves cut off from their homeland. This tore apart and dismembered our national community and triggered a national catastrophe. Just like the government quietly demarcated the borders of Soviet republics, acting behind the scenes after the 1917 revolution, the last leaders of the Soviet Union, contrary to the direct expression of the will of the majority of people in the referendum of 1991, destroyed our great country, and simply made the people in the former republics face this as an accomplished fact.

        I can admit that they didn’t even know what they were doing and what consequences their actions would have in the end. But it doesn’t matter now. There is no Soviet Union anymore; we cannot return to the past. Actually, Russia no longer needs it today; this isn’t our ambition. But there is nothing stronger than the determination of millions of people who, by their culture, religion, traditions, and language, consider themselves part of Russia, whose ancestors lived in a single country for centuries. There is nothing stronger than their determination to return to their true historical homeland.

        For eight long years, people in Donbass were subjected to genocide, shelling and blockades; in Kherson and Zaporozhye, a criminal policy was pursued to cultivate hatred for Russia, for everything Russian. Now too, during the referendums, the Kiev regime threatened schoolteachers, women who worked in election commissions with reprisals and death. Kiev threatened millions of people who came to express their will with repression. But the people of Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson weren’t broken, and they had their say.

        I want the Kiev authorities and their true handlers in the West to hear me now, and I want everyone to remember this: the people living in Lugansk and Donetsk, in Kherson and Zaporozhye have become our citizens, forever. (Applause.)

        We call on the Kiev regime to immediately cease fire and all hostilities; to end the war it unleashed back in 2014 and return to the negotiating table. We are ready for this, as we have said more than once. But the choice of the people in Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson will not be discussed. The decision has been made, and Russia will not betray it. (Applause.) Kiev’s current authorities should respect this free expression of the people’s will; there is no other way. This is the only way to peace.

        We will defend our land with all the forces and resources we have, and we will do everything we can to ensure the safety of our people. This is the great liberating mission of our nation.

        We will definitely rebuild the destroyed cities and towns, the residential buildings, schools, hospitals, theatres and museums. We will restore and develop industrial enterprises, factories, infrastructure, as well as the social security, pension, healthcare and education systems.

        We will certainly work to improve the level of security. Together we will make sure that citizens in the new regions can feel the support of all the people of Russia, of the entire nation, all the republics, territories and regions of our vast Motherland. (Applause.)

        Friends, colleagues,

        Today I would like to address our soldiers and officers who are taking part in the special military operation, the fighters of Donbass and Novorossiya, those who went to military recruitment offices after receiving a call-up paper under the executive order on partial mobilisation, and those who did this voluntarily, answering the call of their hearts. I would like to address their parents, wives and children, to tell them what our people are fighting for, what kind of enemy we are up against, and who is pushing the world into new wars and crises and deriving blood-stained benefits from this tragedy.

        Our compatriots, our brothers and sisters in Ukraine who are part of our united people have seen with their own eyes what the ruling class of the so-called West have prepared for humanity as a whole. They have dropped their masks and shown what they are really made of.

        When the Soviet Union collapsed, the West decided that the world and all of us would permanently accede to its dictates. In 1991, the West thought that Russia would never rise after such shocks and would fall to pieces on its own. This almost happened. We remember the horrible 1990s, hungry, cold and hopeless. But Russia remained standing, came alive, grew stronger and occupied its rightful place in the world.

        Meanwhile, the West continued and continues looking for another chance to strike a blow at us, to weaken and break up Russia, which they have always dreamed about, to divide our state and set our peoples against each other, and to condemn them to poverty and extinction. They cannot rest easy knowing that there is such a great country with this huge territory in the world, with its natural wealth, resources and people who cannot and will not do someone else’s bidding.

        The West is ready to cross every line to preserve the neo-colonial system which allows it to live off the world, to plunder it thanks to the domination of the dollar and technology, to collect an actual tribute from humanity, to extract its primary source of unearned prosperity, the rent paid to the hegemon. The preservation of this annuity is their main, real and absolutely self-serving motivation. This is why total de-sovereignisation is in their interest. This explains their aggression towards independent states, traditional values and authentic cultures, their attempts to undermine international and integration processes, new global currencies and technological development centres they cannot control. It is critically important for them to force all countries to surrender their sovereignty to the United States.

        In certain countries, the ruling elites voluntarily agree to do this, voluntarily agree to become vassals; others are bribed or intimidated. And if this does not work, they destroy entire states, leaving behind humanitarian disasters, devastation, ruins, millions of wrecked and mangled human lives, terrorist enclaves, social disaster zones, protectorates, colonies and semi-colonies. They don’t care. All they care about is their own benefit.

        I want to underscore again that their insatiability and determination to preserve their unfettered dominance are the real causes of the hybrid war that the collective West is waging against Russia. They do not want us to be free; they want us to be a colony. They do not want equal cooperation; they want to loot. They do not want to see us a free society, but a mass of soulless slaves.

        They see our thought and our philosophy as a direct threat. That is why they target our philosophers for assassination. Our culture and art present a danger to them, so they are trying to ban them. Our development and prosperity are also a threat to them because competition is growing. They do not want or need Russia, but we do. (Applause.)

        I would like to remind you that in the past, ambitions of world domination have repeatedly shattered against the courage and resilience of our people. Russia will always be Russia. We will continue to defend our values and our Motherland.

        The West is counting on impunity, on being able to get away with anything. As a matter of fact, this was actually the case until recently. Strategic security agreements have been trashed; agreements reached at the highest political level have been declared tall tales; firm promises not to expand NATO to the east gave way to dirty deception as soon as our former leaders bought into them; missile defence, intermediate-range and shorter-range missile treaties have been unilaterally dismantled under far-fetched pretexts.

        And all we hear is, the West is insisting on a rules-based order. Where did that come from anyway? Who has ever seen these rules? Who agreed or approved them? Listen, this is just a lot of nonsense, utter deceit, double standards, or even triple standards! They must think we’re stupid.

        Russia is a great thousand-year-old power, a whole civilisation, and it is not going to live by such makeshift, false rules. (Applause.)

        It was the so-called West that trampled on the principle of the inviolability of borders, and now it is deciding, at its own discretion, who has the right to self-determination and who does not, who is unworthy of it. It is unclear what their decisions are based on or who gave them the right to decide in the first place. They just assumed it.

        That is why the choice of the people in Crimea, Sevastopol, Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson makes them so furiously angry. The West does not have any moral right to weigh in, or even utter a word about freedom of democracy. It does not and it never did.

        Western elites not only deny national sovereignty and international law. Their hegemony has pronounced features of totalitarianism, despotism and apartheid. They brazenly divide the world into their vassals – the so-called civilised countries – and all the rest, who, according to the designs of today’s Western racists, should be added to the list of barbarians and savages. False labels like “rogue country” or “authoritarian regime” are already available, and are used to stigmatise entire nations and states, which is nothing new. There is nothing new in this: deep down, the Western elites have remained the same colonisers. They discriminate and divide peoples into the top tier and the rest.

        We have never agreed to and will never agree to such political nationalism and racism. What else, if not racism, is the Russophobia being spread around the world? What, if not racism, is the West’s dogmatic conviction that its civilisation and neoliberal culture is an indisputable model for the entire world to follow? “You’re either with us or against us.” It even sounds strange.

        Western elites are even shifting repentance for their own historical crimes on everyone else, demanding that the citizens of their countries and other peoples confess to things they have nothing to do with at all, for example, the period of colonial conquests.

        It is worth reminding the West that it began its colonial policy back in the Middle Ages, followed by the worldwide slave trade, the genocide of Indian tribes in America, the plunder of India and Africa, the wars of England and France against China, as a result of which it was forced to open its ports to the opium trade. What they did was get entire nations hooked on drugs and purposefully exterminated entire ethnic groups for the sake of grabbing land and resources, hunting people like animals. This is contrary to human nature, truth, freedom and justice.

        While we – we are proud that in the 20th century our country led the anti-colonial movement, which opened up opportunities for many peoples around the world to make progress, reduce poverty and inequality, and defeat hunger and disease.

        To emphasise, one of the reasons for the centuries-old Russophobia, the Western elites’ unconcealed animosity toward Russia is precisely the fact that we did not allow them to rob us during the period of colonial conquests and forced the Europeans to trade with us on mutually beneficial terms. This was achieved by creating a strong centralised state in Russia, which grew and got stronger based on the great moral values??of Orthodox Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism, as well as Russian culture and the Russian word that were open to all.

        There were numerous plans to invade Russia. Such attempts were made during the Time of Troubles in the 17th century and in the period of ordeals after the 1917 revolution. All of them failed. The West managed to grab hold of Russia’s wealth only in the late 20th century, when the state had been destroyed. They called us friends and partners, but they treated us like a colony, using various schemes to pump trillions of dollars out of the country. We remember. We have not forgotten anything.

        A few days ago, people in Donetsk and Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye declared their support for restoring our historical unity. Thank you! (Applause.)

        Western countries have been saying for centuries that they bring freedom and democracy to other nations. Nothing could be further from the truth. Instead of bringing democracy they suppressed and exploited, and instead of giving freedom they enslaved and oppressed. The unipolar world is inherently anti-democratic and unfree; it is false and hypocritical through and through.

        The United States is the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons twice, destroying the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. And they created a precedent.

        Recall that during WWII the United States and Britain reduced Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne and many other German cities to rubble, without the least military necessity. It was done ostentatiously and, to repeat, without any military necessity. They had only one goal, as with the nuclear bombing of Japanese cities: to intimidate our country and the rest of the world.

        The United States left a deep scar in the memory of the people of Korea and Vietnam with their carpet bombings and use of napalm and chemical weapons.

        It actually continues to occupy Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea and other countries, which they cynically refer to as equals and allies. Look now, what kind of alliance is that? The whole world knows that the top officials in these countries are being spied on and that their offices and homes are bugged. It is a disgrace, a disgrace for those who do this and for those who, like slaves, silently and meekly swallow this arrogant behaviour.

        They call the orders and threats they make to their vassals Euro-Atlantic solidarity, and the creation of biological weapons and the use of human test subjects, including in Ukraine, noble medical research.

        It is their destructive policies, wars and plunder that have unleashed today’s massive wave of migrants. Millions of people endure hardships and humiliation or die by the thousands trying to reach Europe.

        They are exporting grain from Ukraine now. Where are they taking it under the guise of ensuring the food security of the poorest countries? Where is it going? They are taking it to the self-same European countries. Only five percent has been delivered to the poorest countries. More cheating and naked deception again.

        In effect, the American elite is using the tragedy of these people to weaken its rivals, to destroy nation states. This goes for Europe and for the identities of France, Italy, Spain and other countries with centuries-long histories.

        Washington demands more and more sanctions against Russia and the majority of European politicians obediently go along with it. They clearly understand that by pressuring the EU to completely give up Russian energy and other resources, the United States is practically pushing Europe toward deindustrialisation in a bid to get its hands on the entire European market. These European elites understand everything – they do, but they prefer to serve the interests of others. This is no longer servility but direct betrayal of their own peoples. God bless, it is up to them.

        But the Anglo-Saxons believe sanctions are no longer enough and now they have turned to subversion. It seems incredible but it is a fact – by causing explosions on Nord Stream’s international gas pipelines passing along the bottom of the Baltic Sea, they have actually embarked on the destruction of Europe’s entire energy infrastructure. It is clear to everyone who stands to gain. Those who benefit are responsible, of course.

        The dictates of the US are backed up by crude force, on the law of the fist. Sometimes it is beautifully wrapped sometimes there is no wrapping at all but the gist is the same – the law of the fist. Hence, the deployment and maintenance of hundreds of military bases in all corners of the world, NATO expansion, and attempts to cobble together new military alliances, such as AUKUS and the like. Much is being done to create a Washington-Seoul-Tokyo military-political chain. All states that possess or aspire to genuine strategic sovereignty and are capable of challenging Western hegemony, are automatically declared enemies.

        These are the principles that underlie US and NATO military doctrines that require total domination. Western elites are presenting their neocolonialist plans with the same hypocrisy, claiming peaceful intentions, talking about some kind of deterrence. This evasive word migrates from one strategy to another but really only means one thing – undermining any and all sovereign centres of power.

        We have already heard about the deterrence of Russia, China and Iran. I believe next in line are other countries of Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, as well as current US partners and allies. After all, we know that when they are displeased, they introduce sanctions against their allies as well – against this or that bank or company. This is their practice and they will expand it. They have everything in their sights, including our next-door neighbours – the CIS countries.

        At the same time, the West has clearly been engaged in wishful thinking for a long time. In launching the sanctions blitzkrieg against Russia, for example, they thought that they could once again line up the whole world at their command. As it turns out, however, such a bright prospect does not excite everyone – other than complete political masochists and admirers of other unconventional forms of international relations. Most states refuse to ”snap a salute“ and instead choose the sensible path of cooperation with Russia.

        The West clearly did not expect such insubordination. They simply got used to acting according to a template, to grab whatever they please, by blackmail, bribery, intimidation, and convinced themselves that these methods would work forever, as if they had fossilised in the past.

        Such self-confidence is a direct product not only of the notorious concept of exceptionalism – although it never ceases to amaze – but also of the real ”information hunger“ in the West. The truth has been drowned in an ocean of myths, illusions and fakes, using extremely aggressive propaganda, lying like Goebbels. The more unbelievable the lie, the quicker people will believe it – that is how they operate, according to this principle.

        But people cannot be fed with printed dollars and euros. You can’t feed them with those pieces of paper, and the virtual, inflated capitalisation of western social media companies can’t heat their homes. Everything I am saying is important. And what I just said is no less so: you can’t feed anyone with paper – you need food; and you can’t heat anyone’s home with these inflated capitalisations – you need energy.

        That is why politicians in Europe have to convince their fellow citizens to eat less, take a shower less often and dress warmer at home. And those who start asking fair questions like “Why is that, in fact?” are immediately declared enemies, extremists and radicals. They point back at Russia and say: that is the source of all your troubles. More lies.

        I want to make special note of the fact that there is every reason to believe that the Western elites are not going to look for constructive ways out of the global food and energy crisis that they and they alone are to blame for, as a result of their long-term policy, dating back long before our special military operation in Ukraine, in Donbass. They have no intention of solving the problems of injustice and inequality. I am afraid they would rather use other formulas they are more comfortable with.

        And here it is important to recall that the West bailed itself out of its early 20th century challenges with World War I. Profits from World War II helped the United States finally overcome the Great Depression and become the largest economy in the world, and to impose on the planet the power of the dollar as a global reserve currency. And the 1980s crisis – things came to a head in the 1980s again – the West emerged from it unscathed largely by appropriating the inheritance and resources of the collapsed and defunct Soviet Union. That’s a fact.

        Now, in order to free itself from the latest web of challenges, they need to dismantle Russia as well as other states that choose a sovereign path of development, at all costs, to be able to further plunder other nations’ wealth and use it to patch their own holes. If this does not happen, I cannot rule out that they will try to trigger a collapse of the entire system, and blame everything on that, or, God forbid, decide to use the old formula of economic growth through war.

        Russia is aware of its responsibility to the international community and will make every effort to ensure that cooler heads prevail.

        The current neocolonial model is ultimately doomed; this much is obvious. But I repeat that its real masters will cling to it to the end. They simply have nothing to offer the world except to maintain the same system of plundering and racketeering.

        They do not give a damn about the natural right of billions of people, the majority of humanity, to freedom and justice, the right to determine their own future. They have already moved on to the radical denial of moral, religious, and family values.

        Let’s answer some very simple questions for ourselves. Now I would like to return to what I said and want to address also all citizens of the country – not just the colleagues that are in the hall – but all citizens of Russia: do we want to have here, in our country, in Russia, “parent number one, parent number two and parent number three” (they have completely lost it!) instead of mother and father? Do we want our schools to impose on our children, from their earliest days in school, perversions that lead to degradation and extinction? Do we want to drum into their heads the ideas that certain other genders exist along with women and men and to offer them gender reassignment surgery? Is that what we want for our country and our children? This is all unacceptable to us. We have a different future of our own.

        Let me repeat that the dictatorship of the Western elites targets all societies, including the citizens of Western countries themselves. This is a challenge to all. This complete renunciation of what it means to be human, the overthrow of faith and traditional values, and the suppression of freedom are coming to resemble a “religion in reverse” – pure Satanism. Exposing false messiahs, Jesus Christ said in the Sermon on the Mount: “By their fruits ye shall know them.” These poisonous fruits are already obvious to people, and not only in our country but also in all countries, including many people in the West itself.

        The world has entered a period of a fundamental, revolutionary transformation. New centres of power are emerging. They represent the majority – the majority! – of the international community. They are ready not only to declare their interests but also to protect them. They see in multipolarity an opportunity to strengthen their sovereignty, which means gaining genuine freedom, historical prospects, and the right to their own independent, creative and distinctive forms of development, to a harmonious process.

        As I have already said, we have many like-minded people in Europe and the United States, and we feel and see their support. An essentially emancipatory, anti-colonial movement against unipolar hegemony is taking shape in the most diverse countries and societies. Its power will only grow with time. It is this force that will determine our future geopolitical reality.

        Friends,

        Today, we are fighting for a just and free path, first of all for ourselves, for Russia, in order to leave dictate and despotism in the past. I am convinced that countries and peoples understand that a policy based on the exceptionalism of whoever it may be and the suppression of other cultures and peoples is inherently criminal, and that we must close this shameful chapter. The ongoing collapse of Western hegemony is irreversible. And I repeat: things will never be the same.

        The battlefield to which destiny and history have called us is a battlefield for our people, for the great historical Russia. (Applause.) For the great historical Russia, for future generations, our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We must protect them against enslavement and monstrous experiments that are designed to cripple their minds and souls.

        Today, we are fighting so that it would never occur to anyone that Russia, our people, our language, or our culture can be erased from history. Today, we need a consolidated society, and this consolidation can only be based on sovereignty, freedom, creation, and justice. Our values ??are humanity, mercy and compassion.

        And I want to close with the words of a true patriot Ivan Ilyin: “If I consider Russia my Motherland, that means that I love as a Russian, contemplate and think, sing and speak as a Russian; that I believe in the spiritual strength of the Russian people. Its spirit is my spirit; its destiny is my destiny; its suffering is my grief; and its prosperity is my joy.”

        Behind these words stands a glorious spiritual choice, which, for more than a thousand years of Russian statehood, was followed by many generations of our ancestors. Today, we are making this choice; the citizens of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and the residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions have made this choice. They made the choice to be with their people, to be with their Motherland, to share in its destiny, and to be victorious together with it.

        The truth is with us, and behind us is Russia!

    • US unveils new sanctions against Russia in response to annexation in Ukraine

      On Friday morning, the Biden administration announced a wave of new sanctions against a number of individuals and entities including the head of Russia’s central bank, following Vladimir Putin’s move to annex four areas of Ukraine.

      The White House and Ukraine say the annexations are illegitimate; the Departments of Treasury, Commerce, and State are responding by adding new individuals and companies to the already sprawling sanctions effort being imposed by the US and the West.

      “We will not stand by as Putin fraudulently attempts to annex parts of Ukraine,” Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said in a statement. “The Treasury Department and US government are taking sweeping action today to further weaken Russia’s already degraded military industrial complex and undermine its ability to wage its illegal war.”

      In his own statement Friday, President Joe Biden said Russia was “showing its contempt for peaceful nations everywhere.” He added that the US “will always honor Ukraine’s internationally recognized borders.”

      New individuals targeted, including Russia’s central bank governor

      One arm of the new sanctions will name additional Putin allies individually. The White House has targeted an ever-growing list of Russian officials for economic penalties, recently discussing efforts to punish “facilitators” of Russia’s attempts to evade sanctions all around the world.

      Treasury will sanction Elvira Nabiullina, the governor of Russia’s Central Bank. The highly regarded banker has worked to limit the damage to Russia’s economy in recent months even after she reportedly tried to quit soon after the invasion of Russia, only to be told no by Putin. Olga Skorobogatova, the deputy governor of the bank, is also being hit with new sanctions.

      An administration official says Friday’s move will also bring in more Russian leaders and their family members into the orbit, and include Belarusian military officials. Belarus has been a close Putin ally since the beginning of the invasion and provided a staging ground for Russian troops on its border with Ukraine.

      Treasury is announcing sanctions against 14 new individuals “in Russia’s military-industrial complex” as well two international suppliers and 109 additional members of Russia’s Duma and 169 members of Russia’s Federation Council, the upper chamber of its parliament.

      Friday’s action came after Putin held a “signing ceremony” to bring in new areas under Russian control; the annexation has been called a sham by Ukraine and the West.

      Recently, the US and other G7 Leaders telegraphed their readiness for additional sanctions, saying in a statement that Russia’s actions in recent days “clearly breach the United Nations Charter and international law and go diametrically against the rule of law among nations.”

      New ‘export controls’
      The Department of Commerce’s Bureau of Industry and Security also announced new export control efforts Friday that will apply to entities and individuals both inside and also around the world if they “provide political or economic support to Russia for its purported annexation.”

      Administration officials have long touted export controls as a means to cut off Russia from resources such as high-tech semiconductors and the larger “21st century economy” amid questions about how effective the move could actually be given Russia’s alliance with nations like China.

      Commerce will add 57 new entities located in Russia and the Crimea region of Ukraine to its list of export control targets. Officials also underlined Friday that export control efforts can also apply to companies in outside countries that provide support to Russia and Belarus.

      There are now a total of 392 entities subject to export controls. The department is “clamping down on entities that are seeking to support Russia’s military effort — inside and outside of Russia — and will continue to coordinate with our allies and partners to continue to cut Russia off further from the technologies and other items it needs to sustain its war effort,” Commerce Under Secretary of Commerce for Industry and Security Alan Estevez said in a statement.

      Finally, the US State Department is also imposing new visa restrictions on 910 individuals, including on a Russian soldier named Ochur-Suge Mongush who’s accused of war crimes. The new visa restrictions will apply to both members of Russia’s military as well as Russia’s proxies. Belarusian military officials will be included in the new restrictions as well.

  6. FORBES – Russian Oil Price Cap Could Be Biden’s Biggest Energy Folly Yet

    There are two likely consequences of the price cap on Russian oil exports that G7 leaders agreed to in early September – and neither is good for the policy’s architects.

    The idea behind the price cap is to expand the reach of sanctions on Russia to third countries, thereby limiting the windfall the Kremlin is receiving from higher oil prices while also lessening the impact on prices in sanctioning countries. But there are flaws in this thinking.

    First, big buyers of Russian oil like China and India will likely ignore or evade the cap and keep providing vital funding for Russia’s war machine with their purchases.

    Second, the price cap creates a considerable disruption to Russian oil supply that will send global prices skyrocketing, keeping Russian oil income buoyant while punishing the global economy.

    At a minimum, a cap injects greater supply risk into oil markets that will ultimately be reflected in oil prices. Although crude is trading at 9-month lows due to concerns about a global recession, consumers shouldn’t get comfortable with current price levels.

    The price cap is an example of Western policymakers trying to have their cake and eat it, too, when dealing with Russia.

    The G7 believes it has devised a clever way of keeping Russian oil flowing to markets outside the EU, which will ban most imports of Russian crude starting December 5th. Under the arrangement, if Russia sells oil at a G7-mandated price below market rates, it can still use G7 members’ insurance, financing, brokering, and maritime shipping services.

    These services dominate the global oil trade. For instance, the London-based International Group of Protection & Indemnity (P&I) Clubs provides marine liability insurance for over 90% of the worldwide oil shipping trade.

    The G7 — the United States, UK, Canada, Germany, France, Italy, and Japan — is betting that Russia will be so desperate for dollars that it will submit to selling under the price cap system. And even if consumer countries do not sign on to the price cap, Washington believes the plan will give these nations more leverage to negotiate lower prices for Russian oil, thus dealing a blow to Moscow’s oil revenues.

    Ideally, a price cap would facilitate the continued flow of Russian oil, keeping prices lower than they otherwise would be under a full embargo while preventing Moscow from benefiting from price inflation caused by supply restrictions.

    The plan sounds good in theory, but in practice, it is fraught with risk.

    That’s because policymakers fail to understand the workings and economics of energy markets. The reality is that a price cap can easily be circumvented. Just ask any oil trader.

    The G7 member nations have, for the most part, either already imposed embargoes on Russian energy exports or plan to, so the cap’s effects are not aimed at their imports.

    The cap targets heavy buyers of Russian oil like China, India, and, to a lesser extent, Turkey. These third-party countries have not signed on to the cap. After Russia said it would refuse to sell oil to any country that does join the cap, we shouldn’t expect them to, either.

    These are countries that are either allied with Russia (China), worried about their energy security (India), or, in the case of Turkey, a little bit of both.

    For them, losing access to Western insurance, financing, brokering, and maritime shipping is a challenge, but not an insurmountable one.

    Some countries — including Russia — are already stepping in to provide alternative insurance for Russian energy exports, allowing energy trade with Moscow to continue uninterrupted.

    These third-country buyers can also make it look like they are playing ball with the G7, while continuing to import Russian energy simply by paying the cap price and then paying Russian sellers an additional amount on the side.

    Less scrupulous traders could even use falsified bills of lading or other forgeries to get around the price cap.

    Moreover, the Biden administration has already said it does not plan to use Iran-style “secondary” sanctions on Russian oil sales to enforce compliance with the cap. These secondary harsher sanctions can see offenders banned from accessing the U.S. financial system.

    But even with secondary sanctions, there are workarounds. Indeed, significant volumes of sanctioned Iranian and Venezuelan oil continue to find buyers despite sanction regimes.

    The price cap crackdown carries the potential for blowback from Moscow, too.

    The G7 assumes Russia is a rational actor that will make decisions purely based on economics. In reality, Moscow is looking increasingly desperate in its war with Ukraine, and it blames the West for starting an economic war against it.

    Russia has already cut off natural gas supplies to Europe via the Nord Stream 1 pipeline, driving European gas prices through the roof – with a knock-on effect on global gas markets.

    Who is to say it won’t use the energy weapon in oil markets, too?

    While Russia would never take its oil exports to zero, it could cut enough to drive up global prices. This “lower volume, higher price” strategy could keep Moscow’s oil revenues robust while inflicting pain on the G7 price cap architects.

    Russia also remains an integral member of the expanded OPEC+ group. The top members of the OPEC+ cartel are fed up with the West’s meddling and intervention in energy markets. Saudi Arabia is more aligned with Moscow than Washington today. There is no love lost between the Saudi-led cartel and the Biden administration or the European Union.

    Members of OPEC+ have already fired a shot across Washington’s bow by announcing a modest cut in production for October. The cartel has warned more cuts could be in the cards, too. The cartel group also benefits from a “lower volume, higher price” strategy.

    So, what is the most likely outcome of the G7 price cap? Given that it is not practical or enforceable, it serves primarily as an added supply risk in an oil market that can ill afford another one – not with global spare production capacity so low.

    The result of the EU embargo on Russian energy exports and the price cap could be Russia sending more barrels to China, India, and, perhaps Turkey, using primarily Russian, Chinese, and Turkish flagged ships. Russia might offer discounts to sweeten the deal, but nothing near the cap set by the G7.

    What production Moscow can’t sell to third-party countries could instead be shut in, supporting higher oil prices while preserving the resource for later extraction. The International Energy Agency now expects Russian production to drop by 1.9 million barrels a day once the EU embargo goes into full effect.

    That may be the best-case scenario for the G7. The worst is full-blown Russian retaliation and the use of oil exports as a weapon, which could deliver a bullish shock to the market, pushing prices as high as $150 a barrel.

    Such a scenario could increase Russia’s oil income by as much as 50 percent while exacerbating global recessionary pressures.

    The risk of this market reaction cannot be overstated – especially since the Biden administration and EU and UK policymakers have proven themselves incompetent in the current energy crisis, and the price cap could be their coup de grace.

  11. BREITBART – Joe Biden Warns that Democracy Is Threatened by Italy’s Election of Giorgia Meloni

    President Joe Biden warned Wednesday that the election of Italy’s first woman Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni represented a threat to democracy.

    The president spoke during a Democrat Governors Association reception at a private residence in Washington, D.C., returning to one of his favorite talking points about the future of democracy threatened by populist-nationalist political figures.

    “You just saw what’s happened in Italy in that election,” he said, referring to Meloni’s election. “You’re seeing what’s happening around the world.”

    Biden officials are privately concerned that Meloni represents a shift in power away from the leftist global elites to a more populist conservative political future in Europe such as the movements currently in power in Poland and Hungary.

    “You’re going to think this is a little out of whack what I’m going to talk about — but, you know, democracy is at stake,” he continued, speaking to governors and Democrat supporters.

    Biden spoke about the importance of electing Democrat governors because they would control the future of state elections.

    “Literally, the outcome of an election is going to be determined by how well the governors run their states, who’s in charge at the time, whether or not things are going to be — how we count the votes, whether or not it’s transparent, and a whole range of things,” he said.

    The president also revisited the discussion of his conversation with the leader of the Communist party in China Xi Jinping about the virtues of democracy versus autocracy.

    “Literally, there’s a — there’s a case being made around the world, not just here, because democracy and autocracy,” he said. “And there’s an awful lot of folks who believe that democracies can’t be sustained in the 21st century.”

    BREITBART – Twitter Suppresses Women: Platform Hides Video Search Results for Giorgia Meloni

    Twitter appears to be suppressing the results of video searches for the name of Italy’s election winner, Giorgia Meloni, making it harder for users of the platform to discover her speeches.

    This comes after a clip of a 2019 speech from the future Italian Prime Minister went viral across multiple platforms. In the 2019 speech, Meloni condemns globalist capital for waging war on the family, religion, gender identity, and national identity.

    The issue was first identified shortly before noon yesterday, and 24 hours later remains unfixed. The suppression is similar to other forms of shadowbanning by Twitter, which are generally aimed at making it harder to find and engage with content on the platform.

    There appears to be a concerted effort in Silicon Valley to slow the spread of Meloni’s 2019 speech, which has electrified conservatives across the world after her election win. Google-owned YouTube shut down a video of the same speech for nearly 12 hours earlier this week, later restoring it and claiming it was a “mistake” — a mistake that cut off momentum for the clip just as it was going viral.

    Twitter may be the platform where the clip has spread the most. One tweet with the clip amassed over 60,000 retweets and over 200,000 likes before Twitter shut down video searches for the Italian PM’s name.

    […]Big Tech companies like Twitter and Google know more than anyone else in society about how virality works. They are no doubt aware that the first 24-48 hours of momentum for a viral video are critical, and that while a video may get shared outside that window, the level of excitement, and sharing, is unlikely to match those early hours of virality. Now that not one, but two Big Tech companies have made it harder to find Meloni’s speech, these facts are hard to ignore.
