    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.” 6 hours ago

    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.” 8 hours ago

“So my message to the G20 foreign ministers this week is clear: We have been pleading with Israel, as the occupying power in Gaza, to facilitate aid delivery - to little or no avail. We have been calling for the immediate and unconditional release of all hostages - to little or no avail. We have been urging the parties to abide by their obligations under international humanitarian and human rights law - to little or no avail. We have been exhorting countries which have stopped funding UNRWA to reverse their decision - to little or no avail. Today, we implore you, G20 members, to use your political leadership and influence to help end this war and save the people of Gaza. You have the power to make a difference. Use it. Your silence and lack of action will only lead to more women and children thrown into the open graves of Gaza. Humanitarian agencies are doing everything they can. Are you?”

“By way of example, one report on Russian equipment losses indicates that from September 17 to October 17, FPV [first-person view] drones were involved in about 35 percent of elimination operations. During this period, 388 cases of Russian equipment destruction were documented with 146 units destroyed by FPV drones. The attacks destroyed $140m in equipment, including a $25m Tor air defence system.”

“The appellant's prosecution might be unprecedented, but what he did was unprecedented. Assange indiscriminately and knowingly published to the world the names of individuals who acted as sources of information to the U.S It is these facts which distinguish him, not his political opinions.”
