New research from Microsoft indicates that Russia seeks to weaken U.S. backing for Ukraine before the 2024 election, while Chinese influence efforts aim to divide Americans and erode their trust in democracy. https://www.japantimes.co.jp/news/2024/04/18/world/politics/microsoft-russia-china-sway-vote/ #worldnews #politics #microsoft #russia #china #us

This city could become the "second Aleppo". What dark plan does Russia have for Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city of 1.3 million people, and is there any chance to avert it?

During a special meeting of the European Council, President Zelensky spoke about another attack by Russian terrorists on their city of Chernihiv. And so it happens every day. This reflects our key need now - the need for air defense.

Here in Ukraine, in our part of Europe, unfortunately, we do not have the kind of protection that we all saw the other day in the Middle East.

The people who are opposed to US aid to are fools who don't know what they're talking about, and don't understand the totality of the situation. Their ignorance on the matter is putting the US in danger, and making a future armed conflict with more likely. Aid to Ukraine isn't just helping Ukraine. It's helping to ensure the safety and security of , and the rest of our partners.

@slcw the #US places #Ukraine in harm's way for the sake of maintaining the unipolar global dominance of US empire. #Russia competes for dominance by firing missiles at Ukrainian civilians, as conscripts from the lowest classes of Ukrainian and Russian society die in the trenches. There is no virtue held by either empire that is worth one more death. I want US citizens to demand the US government negotiate in good faith to end the bloodshed and bring the world a step back from nuclear war.

I don't wish to upset Ukrainians but they surely must realize by now that the war in #Ukraine is between 2 empires: the US Empire & the Russian Empire. Ukraine is cursed by geography. It'll never have true independence or sovereignty. It's destined to become part of either Greater #Russia or Greater #Germany (cough #EU cough), the latter of which is currently a US vassal, but won't be forever. In any case, Ukraine has no good option. It'll always be under foreign suzerainty.

Look, if I were given the choice between Greater #Russia or Greater #Germany, I'd choose Germany, so I understand why #Ukraine is fighting. No one in their right mind wants to become part of the Russian Empire. But can we just dispense with the myth that this war is about "good versus evil"? It really isn't. It's about which empire inherits eastern #Europe. It's a rerun of WW2 & the Napoleonic Wars, except this time Germany & #France look prettier, while Russia is still Russia.

MAGA Republican Sen. J.D. Vance on Wednesday encouraged a group of House Republicans to block debate on their own speaker’s foreign aid plan — an uncommon effort by a member of one chamber to sway policy across the Capitol.

Vance (R-Ohio), who is adamantly against aid to Ukraine, delivered the remarks Wednesday before the Republican Study Committee

YOU DID IT!

Pressure on Speaker Mike Johnson from the American people have caused him to FINALLY get behind Ukraine aid.

Far-right MAGA Republicans are seething!

President Biden gets behind Speaker Johnson’s foreign aid plan

Passage would mark a major win for the president, who is desperate to get munitions to Ukraine.

Una vera pace in è difficile. Per capire perché si devono analizzare i VERI motivi e obbiettivi di chi l'ha iniziata, di chi la subisce difendendosi, e degli alleati dell'una e dell'altra parte. Proviamo a farlo con due live. In questa seconda parte parleremo delle trattative di pace fallite e del perché gli ucraini combattono ancora.
