IPSEs IN THE LAST 24H
  • Matthew Hollingworth
    Matthew Hollingworth “What we still see today is obviously just a level of destruction and dispossession that is far greater than I've probably ever seen anywhere else in the world in any other war. There's so much more to do. Every child I've met today in Gaza said the same thing. They are dreaming of eating vegetables, they're dreaming of eating meat. It's barely a life.” 2 hours ago

    Andrei Kartapolov “If we see that the challenges and threats increase, it means that we can correct something in [the doctrine] regarding the timing of the use of nuclear weapons and the decision to make this use.” 2 hours ago

“I hope that China will face the reality of the Republic of China's existence and in good faith ... engage in cooperation with the legal government chosen by Taiwan's people.”

“When it comes to Iranian policy, it is Khamenei who calls the shots, not the president. So we don't anticipate any change in Iranian behavior. And therefore the Iranians should not expect any change in American behavior when it comes to holding them accountable.”

“The upcoming election offers an opportunity for the clerical establishment to pursue a different course by allowing a relatively competitive vote. But I suspect that the regime is dedicating all its efforts to preparing for a succession after Khamenei, striving to create homogeneous conditions at the top of the power pyramid, and not allowing any rivals into this circle.”

“[Raisi] was a loyal functionary willing to do the bidding of the supreme leader through multiple institutions. There are no obvious candidates that can tick a lot of boxes.”

“The death of Raisi, in itself, will not cause a significant shift in Iran's policies. After all, the president is the second in command in the power hierarchy of the Islamic republic, and strategic directions are set by the supreme leader. The next president could have significant influence over the overall trajectory of Khamenei's succession. As a result, this is going to lead to heightened intra-conservative competition to [become president].”

“U.S. and European support for Ukraine has been essential for Ukraine's resistance to Russia's invasion. And let me be clear: It is also critical for the security of the American and European people. If we stand by as dictators violate territorial integrity and flout the international rules-based order, they have no reason to stop at their initial targets. They will keep going. The U.S. and Europe must show that Russia cannot outlast their resolve to defend a rules-based order that took them decades to shape. This includes the need to crack down on Russian sanctions evasion and provide Ukraine the funding to equip its military, fund critical government services and ultimately rebuild once the conflict ends. That's why I believe it's vital and urgent that we collectively find a way forward to unlock the value of Russian sovereign assets immobilized in our jurisdictions for the benefit of Ukraine. This will be a key topic of conversation during G7 meetings this week.”

“The ICC prosecutor's application for arrest warrants against Israeli leaders is outrageous. And let me be clear: Whatever this prosecutor might imply, there is no equivalence - none - between Israel and Hamas. We will always stand with Israel against threats to its security.”

“Western allies are taking too long to make key decisions , opens new tabon military support for Ukraine. Every decision to which we, then later everyone together, comes to is late by around one year. Russians are using 300 planes on the territory of Ukraine. We need at least 120, 130 planes to resist in the sky. You can't provide that right now? OK ... returning to the planes that you have on the territory of neighbouring NATO countries: raise them up ... shoot down targets, protect civilians. Can they do this? I'm sure that yes. Is this an attack by NATO countries, involvement? No.”

“On the request by the ICC Prosecutor for warrants: against Hamas, the charges of hostage taking and killing likely to stand but not others. Against Israeli leaders, all charges likely to stick. And missing charges include attacks against various civilian objects including homes!”

“The request submitted by the Court's prosecutor, Karim Khan, for arrest warrants against both Hamas and Israeli officials is an important step in the investigation of the situation in Palestine. Belgium will continue to support the essential work of international justice to ensure that those responsible for all crimes are held accountable.”

“Drawing parallels between the leaders of a democratic country determined to defend itself from despicable terror to leaders of a blood-thirsty terror organisation [Hamas] is a deep distortion of justice and blatant moral bankruptcy.”

“I'm pleased to see that the law is now occupying the place it should. Until now, politics has been suspected of holding back the application of the law and in a way that's been very unsatisfactory - now the law is saying it's going to play its part, so that's a good thing. Don't prejudge the issue, it's an application for arrest warrants by Mr Khan in respect to people on both sides and we wait for the judges decision whether to confirm or not.”

“The decision by the ICC prosecutor to seek arrest warrants for three Hamas leaders equates the victim with the executioner. the ICC decision gives encouragement to Israel to continue its war of extermination in Gaza.”

“The ICC deals with only serious crimes but when you hear what is detailed on both sides, it really is sobering. On the Israeli side, he is naming the prime minister and the defence minister but says this was a state policy, this was official government policy to use starvation as a method of war. I think it is interesting that he's decided to make this public at this stage because the other important decision by Khan [Karim Khan] in the last couple of years is when he brought an arrest warrant against Vladimir Putin and his children's commissioner, Maria Lvova-Belova, in March 2023. At that stage, there were arrest warrants. We're not at this stage; he's gone public saying there should be arrest warrants and he needs to go to the judges. Last time, he had already gone to the judges and it was made public that the judges had approved the recommendation. I can't tell you the reason why, but perhaps he's trying to force an end to the violence by speaking out as early as possible and trying to force efforts for a ceasefire. That seems to be a possibility - why he's decided to act this way.”
