Thierry Meyssan - Tue Apr 20, 2021 09:13
The Ukrainian population is divided between a part of European culture and another of Russian culture. This singularity offers Washington a playground against Moscow. For several weeks now, the drums have been beating, sounding war. But none of the allies want to die for Kiev or sacrifice themselves to Russia.

The government of the Russian Federation authorized the arrest of a Ukrainian diplomat, carried out on 17 April 2021. The Russian police announced that the Ukrainian diplomat was arrested while in possession of Russian documents classified as military secret. Under the Vienna Accords, he enjoys diplomatic immunity and, even though he was caught red handed in the act of espionage, he must be (...)

Strikes against Israeli Mossad offices, a US military base and another Turkish military base were reported on 13, 14 and 15 April 2021 in the city of Erbil, the capital of Iraqi Kurdistan. For the first time, they were not executed with rockets, but with drones. The local press links the first attack to the confrontation between Israel and Iran and attributes the other two to a hitherto unknown group, identified as Awliyaa al-Dam (The Guardians of the Blood). For its part, the Iranian (...)

On 10 April 2021, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdo?an hosted his Ukrainian counterpart Volodymyr Zelensky at the Huber Villa in Istanbul. The Turkish secret service immediately began to recruit international jihadists, from the area they occupy in northwestern Syria, to transfer them to Ukraine. This is not the first time that Turkey has resorted to international jihadists; it recruited them in a similar way to be used in Libya and Azerbaijan. 150 soldiers of the Turkish regular army (...)

On 14 April 2021, President Biden announced the pullout of US troops from Afghanistan [1]. However, this is not the implementation of the plan promoted by his predecessor (withdrawing troops and stopping the ?endless war?). Moreover, Joe Biden never even mentioned abandoning the Rumsfeld / Cebrowski strategy. Defense Secretary Gen. Lloyd Austin said that the U.S. will continue to pay Afghan army and police salaries and is expected to be in charge of Air Force and Special Forces equipment. (...)

Cuba, a country with a very high level in the field of medical research, is developing five different anti-Covid vaccines. Several have already entered phase 3 of the clinical trial. For one of them, Abdala, the trial involved 48,000 volunteers. In the case of Soberana 02, the second dose of the vaccine was received by 42,000 volunteers.

For a over a week, the United States and Russia have been moving military forces to Ukraine and the Black Sea, while simultaneously launching large military maneuvres in Greece [1].

Meanwhile five C-130J Hercules transport planes were announced to have arrived in Kiev from Stuttgart. For its part, Moscow also denounced (...)

This association was funded to the tune of $ 50 million by Germany, Canada, (...)
Joseph R. Biden Jr. - Thu Apr 15, 2021 10:58
Hello, folks. Thanks for coming over. Good afternoon, everyone. Earlier this week, I spoke with President Putin of Russia about the nature of our relationship ? the relationship between our two countries. And I was candid and respectful; the conversation was candid and respectful. Two great powers with significant responsibility for global stability. And President Putin and I have had a significant responsibility to steward that relationship. I take that responsibility very seriously, (...)
Antony Blinken - Thu Apr 15, 2021 10:33
Today, we announced actions to hold the Russian Government to account for the SolarWinds intrusion, reports of bounties on U.S. soldiers in Afghanistan, and attempts to interfere in the 2020 U.S. elections. We have engaged Russian authorities to share our concerns about their actions and the steps we are taking in response. The President is signing a new Executive Order on Russia that will broaden the scope of our sanctions authorities. Under this new Executive Order, the U.S. Department (...)
