  • Igor Dodon
    Igor Dodon “We are categorically opposed to this referendum. We are not saying 'no' to talks with the EU and we are not opposed to the EU. We oppose Sandu using it as an instrument for her own interests and those of her party. We are therefore asking voters during the campaign not to take part in the referendum.” 7 hours ago
  • Ben Hodges
    Ben Hodges “Since the fall of Avdiivka in Ukraine's east on February 17 [2024], its forces have oozed forward, swallowing several villages, as Ukrainian forces have performed tactical retreats. Here we are in April [2024], and [the Russians] are oozing out. Why is that? I think it's because that's the best the Russians can do. They do not have the capability to knock Ukraine out of the war. Russia lacked the ability to equip large armoured formations that could move rapidly, with supporting artillery, engineers and logistics. I don't think it exists. That's why I feel fairly confident that the mission for [Ukrainian] general Oleksandr Syrskyi for the next several months is to stabilise this as much as he can to buy time for Ukraine to grow the size of the army, to rebuild the defence industry of Ukraine, as well as give us time to find more ammunition for them. I think of 2024 as a year of industrial competition. So the army has got to buy time.” 9 hours ago

“Avdiivka is a very important strong point in the Ukrainian system of defense, because it protects Pokrovsk, about 30 miles to the northwest, a logistical hub for the Ukrainian Army. Taking control of Avdiivka might create an opening for Russia.”

“We shall not bow down to international dictates in regards to a future deal with the Palestinians. Such a compromise should be through direct negotiations with no preconditions. How can we give recognition to such a state after the massacre of October 7. This would be a reward for terrorism.”

“The Israeli offensive in Rafah could have very tragic consequences for the people in the area. You can imagine that any extensive military action there will have a devastating effect on the humanitarian situation. People are already suffering for lack of shelter, food, medicine, sanitation. The current scale of the conflict … is [already] leading to a daily loss of life for men, women, and children. And I think the international community is conscious, if not tainted … and strained by what is happening to civilians in Gaza.”

“Europe faces a dilemma in aiding Ukraine: Providing assistance requires significant financial commitment, and there is considerable opposition within Europe; however, refraining from giving aid would completely undermine years of political correctness. Europe will still provide assistance to Ukraine, but the extent and speed of aid will be reduced. The previously approved 50 billion euro aid package may not be implemented as quickly as anticipated. Regardless of how the situation unfolds in the future, the European powers will not be dragged into conflicts. Zelensky has gained the support of the European powers he desired, achieving a win-win situation with a document that holds little substance.”

“In a situation where the enemy is advancing over the corpses of their own soldiers with a 10-to-one shelling advantage, under constant bombardment, this is the only right decision.”

“There are about 300,000 people in the north and I have no idea how they've survived. What we managed to bring up there is absolutely not enough. It is pure misery. Repeatedly, when we are allowed to cross the checkpoint at Wadi Gaza to deliver food assistance, thousands of people block and unload the trucks at the risk of being shot.”
