IPSEs IN THE LAST 24H
  • Volker Türk
    Volker Türk “Russia's full-scale armed attack on Ukraine, which is about to enter its third year with no end in sight, continues to cause serious and widespread human rights violations, destroying lives and livelihoods. The invasion has exacted a horrific human cost, inflicting immense suffering on millions of civilians.” 1 hour ago
  • Tymofiy Mylovanov
    Tymofiy Mylovanov “In 2022, the [US] administration [of Joe Biden] submitted funding requests in the spring, almost immediately after the invasion. But in 2023, it waited until mid-fall to announce what it plans to submit. Avdiivka demonstrates the cost of these political delays: human lives, lost territory, and encouraged Russia. If that's the plan 'to be with Ukraine as long as it takes', then the US delays in aid have just prolonged the war.” 3 hours ago
  • Dmytro Kuleba
    Dmytro Kuleba “The era of peace in Europe is over. And every time Ukrainian soldiers withdraw from a Ukrainian town because of the lack of ammunition, think of it not only in terms of democracy and defending the world-based order, but also in terms of Russian soldiers getting a few kilometres closer to your towns.” 4 hours ago

“Kim Yo Jong courteously conveyed Kim Jong Un's thanks to Putin to the Russian side, saying that the gift serves as a clear demonstration of the special personal relations between the top leaders of the DPRK and Russia and as the best one.”

“Those who claim that Republika Srpska is isolated probably think that we should be sitting in [U.S. President Joe] Biden's office and watching him stumble. Let them say what they want. After Lukashenka, I will talk with Putin in two or three days, then with the president of Tatarstan [Rustam Minnikhanov].”

“It has turned into a violent state that kills people who dream of a better future, like Nemtsov [Putin critic Boris Nemtsov] or now Navalny - imprisoned and tortured to death for standing up to Putin.”

“His death in a Russian prison and the fixation and fear of one man only underscores the weakness and rot at the heart of the system that Putin has built. Russia is responsible for this.”

“There is nothing more the dictator can do to Navalny, Navalny is dead and has become immortal. I also think that a murdered Alexey Navalny will be a bigger threat for the dictator than a living one. Most likely, to drown out voices of protest, [Putin] will launch a campaign of terror in the country.”

“I don't know who exactly decided [that] about me, but I know exactly the reason … because my election rating, the number of people who are ready to vote for me grows 5 percent a week. [The] official understanding is that all the society is for Putin, for [the] special military operation as we call it, but it's not so. Majority of people in Russia want the conflict in Ukraine to stop.”

“Vladimir Vladimirovich Putin has issued a decree that my husband has to be there (in Ukraine). I'm interested to know when he will issue a decree that my husband has to be home. So what's next? The Ministry of Defense has spent its money, now we need to squeeze everything out of our guys, get the last life out of them? So that they come back to us just as stumps? Will they give me the stump? What will I get back? A man without legs, without arms, a sick man? Don't you know what's happening there? All my family's problems can only be solved by one thing - by my husband being demobilised. Because she [toddler daughter] is a completely different child when her father comes home.”

“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.”

“If they simply wanted a secret arms deal, the two leaders did not have to meet in person. Putin and Kim's diplomatic display is meant to claim success in challenging the U.S.-led international order, avoiding over-reliance on China, and increasing pressure on rivals in Ukraine and South Korea.”

“Putin and Kim would both gain from a transactional bargain but they would also gain geopolitically by giving off the impression that their nuclear-armed countries are cooperating militarily and sending a warning about potential consequences to America's allies and like-minded partners that support Ukraine. Kim would also be signalling to Washington, Seoul and Tokyo that Russia has his back in Northeast Asia.”

“That Putin and Kim can satisfy one another's strategic interest is of concern beyond the war in Ukraine. North Korea desperately wants commodities such as food, oil, fertiliser and other goods. On the other hand, Russia has a vast military, nuclear and missile industrial complex, which…could provide Pyongyang much-needed technological fruits. If Moscow does move towards becoming a regular customer for embargoed North Korean arms, it will help Putin sustain his illegal war on Ukraine. But the potential technological payoff for Pyongyang could pose longer-term hazards for the world and must also be considered.”

“There will be discussions related to bilateral relations, cooperation, trade and economic ties, and cultural exchanges. Naturally, there will be an exchange of views on the regional situation and international affairs in general, as this is of interest to both Putin and our guest from Pyongyang.”

“The deepening relationship between Kim and Putin signals a further global split over the war. North Korea's support will allow Putin to wage his war for longer, which is bad news for Europe. It is further proof that much of the world doesn't support Ukraine in the way the US and Europe do, and some countries such as North Korea will openly support Russia without fear of any real consequences.”

“I think it will not be an exaggeration to say that President Erdogan is probably the only man in the world who can convince President Putin to return to the Black Sea Grain Initiative.”

“Prigozhin's rebellion - that was the strongest blow to the legitimacy of the leadership. And where does legitimacy come from? From the people. Therefore, the desire to throw oneself into the people and feel you are supported, it's the kind of need that arises against the backdrop of a rebellion.”

“Russia's arbitrary justice system imprisoning Alexei Navalny for another 19 years is pure injustice. Putin fears nothing more than standing up against war and corruption and for democracy - even from a prison cell. He will not silence critical voices with this.”

“When Putin, and his craven lust for land and power, unleashed his brutal war on Ukraine, he was betting NATO would break apart … But he thought wrong. NATO is stronger, more energised and yes, more united than ever in its history. Indeed, more vital to our shared future.”
