  • Marwan Bishara
    Marwan Bishara “The thing about imperial powers like the UK and the US is that they don't give a damn about the action, in this case, the occupation. They care for the actor, and the actor is an ally, Israel. That's why this court is important, because this court does not see actors. It doesn't care about the identity of the actor, it only cares about the nature of the act. And in this case, it's 75 years of dispossession, 56 years of occupation. The UK and the US don't want you to know the legal opinion of this question, because what they care about is the cynical calculus of geopolitics.” 13 hours ago
  • Josep Borrell
    Josep Borrell “Today, we are further tightening the restrictive measures against Russia's military and defence sector. We remain united in our determination to dent Russia's war machine and help Ukraine win its legitimate fight for self-defence.” 13 hours ago

“The collapse of the Russian economy that many had hoped would precipitate the demise of Putin's regime also did not materialise. The economy is, in fact, in overdrive due to the unprecedented military spending, with the national gross domestic product (GDP) growing faster than the world's average, wages rising at a record rate and the percentage of people living in poverty falling back to levels not seen since the collapse of the USSR. This overdrive may backfire, but not too soon and likely not catastrophically.”
