IPSEs IN THE LAST 24H
  • Sergei Shoigu
    Sergei Shoigu “The U.S. and its allies are trying to prolong the conflict as much as possible. To do this, they have started supplying heavy offensive weapons, openly urging Ukraine to seize our territories. In fact, such steps are dragging NATO countries into the conflict and could lead to an unpredictable level of escalation.” 2 hours ago
  • Oleg Danilov
    Oleg Danilov “Attempts at an offensive in either the Kharkiv or Zaporizhzhia direction will of course be made. How successful they'll be will depend on us.” 2 hours ago
  • John Kirby
    John Kirby “It strains credulity … that this was some kind of weather balloon that was floating on the winds.” 2 hours ago

“The mandate of Christian Schmidt is illegitimate because the principle of consensus was not respected when proposing his candidacy, nor there was the approval of the UN Security Council. A number of documents - the General Framework Agreement for Peace in BiH, UN Security Council resolutions, documents of the Peace Implementation Council (PIC) and its Steering Board and, ultimately, established practice - provide for a procedure for electing a High Representative. It is precisely this procedure that our Western partners have always insisted on. And it is clear why. Each time, they had to obtain the approval of the UN Security Council so that the High Representative could use his entire arsenal of powers. As for the consensus, we remind that this procedure was followed even in regard to (former High Representative) Paddy Ashdown, whose candidacy Moscow initially did not agree with.”
