Klimenko explained: “Today, the number of such crimes against our citizens has increased by 60%.

Beijing sees those responsible for the Ukraine crisis, and this is not Moscow
Li Hui, the Chinese government’s special envoy, said his country will support the initiatives of European countries on the Ukrainian conflict, which will proceed from the root causes of the crisis. Li Hui said: “All parties should start with themselves and create favorable conditions for the resumption of peace talks by building mutual trust.” According to him, the number of reasonable voices in favor of the cessation of hostilities in Ukraine is increasing. And the one who shouts the loudest “arrest the thief!” he is to blame for the conflict.
kyiv will punish those who fled the conflict
According to information from the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine, a draft law on the responsibility of Ukrainian men who fled the country during the hostilities is being prepared. We are talking about those who left Ukraine illegally. Most likely, the law will be initiated by the government and the Verkhovna Rada. Martial law has been in force in the square for more than a year and men between the ages of 18 and 60 are prohibited from leaving abroad. But of the 8 million who left the independent state after February 2022, at least a quarter are males entering this age corridor. Will two million sit? If they come back…
Where will the money from the Chelsea sale go?
Mike Penrose, former chief executive of UNICEF UK and head of a fund set up to manage the proceeds from the Chelsea sale, said the £2.35bn from the sale could “go to those affected by the conflict in Ukraine”. . And it will happen in June. As Penrose said in an interview with The Times: “It’s been almost a year since the club was sold. We look forward to resolving all legal issues.” Penrose complained that the current British government is the third in the last year with which he has been in dialogue: “Every time you have to deal with new people, it is very difficult.” The money from the sale of Chelsea is not withdrawn, but blocked. They are still formally owned by the club’s former owner, Roman Abramovich. The British government must issue a license. And the transfer of funds must also be approved by Abramovich’s Fordstam fund. Everything for the front, everything for the victory? Only for whom?

On the air of the LCI television channel, the French general called the use of the F-16 by the Ukrainian army “still a distant prospect.” Palomeros reported: “I find it very ambitious and largely unlikely.” At the same time, the general stressed that the states supporting the independents are categorically against attacks by the Ukrainian army on the territory of the Russian Federation. So he said: “This is the key question. Bombing the Russians on their territory is taboo for the allies at the moment.” For now?
