    Former United States Secretary of Labor Robert Reich posted a new video on Tuesday in which he enumerated the parallels between Russian President Vladimir Putin's propaganda and the messaging emanating from the GOP and its media pundits. "Why do Putin and the Republican Party sound so much alike? Simple," Reich began. "Their culture wars have similar agendas. Both are trying to distract attention from the economic looting by their respective oligarchies." Reich explained that figures like ex-President Donald Trump, Fox News stooge Tucker Carlson, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis (R), and the right-wing at large have a vested interest in keeping the American population divided because their ultimate collective goal is total economic domination. "Sowing racism, homophobia, and transphobia creates life-or-death dangers for many people in our society. For both Putin and the American right, it serves to divert attention from the economic plunder by the ultra-rich," he said "They want people to fear one another rather than unite behind higher wages, better working conditions, and a fairer economy — and against authoritarianism." Reich then offered some advice on what can...
    The organisers of the prestigious Wimbledon tennis tournament have banned Russian and Belarusian players from competing in their Grand Slam this June.  The ruling, after months of deliberation, marks the first time since the ending of the Second World War that a major sporting event has banned a player because of their birthplace. In 1946, Japanese and German players were not allowed to compete. Three quarters of a century later, surely there is room for a more nuanced approach?  The Beijing Winter Olympics took place earlier this year despite China's appalling human rights record towards Uighur Muslims - gold medals are seen by global leaders as an important way of promoting nationalism. Although the UK and USA publicly condemned China and refused to send diplomats to attend the games, they allowed their national teams to compete. Which seems cynical, to say the least.  Three of the women's world top 20 will be banned - including Aryna Sabalenka (pictured) President Putin is said to have delayed the invasion of Ukraine until the Russian team had completed their efforts in Beijing and brought home...
    The images that have emerged after Russia’s retreat from the outskirts of Kyiv are haunting, harrowing and a hideous reminder of the darkest chapters from Europe’s history. One shows a solitary woman walking past burnt-out Russian tanks amid the flattened buildings of Bucha, near Kyiv, the suburban town now almost unrecognisable from a few short weeks ago. Another picture reveals a soldier nervously prodding a body with a stick to see if it is booby-trapped. A third portrays female soldiers returned to Ukraine in a prisoner swap. Their heads have been shaved in humiliation by captors trying to strip them of dignity. One shows a solitary woman walking past burnt-out Russian tanks amid the flattened buildings of Bucha, near Kyiv, the suburban town now almost unrecognisable from a few short weeks ago These are just a handful of the grotesque images of streets liberated by Ukrainian troops after they forced back Vladimir Putin’s forces. Many pictures from the capital’s outskirts are too distressing to publish. There are claims of mass graves.  Corpses of men with hands tied behind backs, shot...
    A defiant Volodymyr Zelensky says that Ukraine will never concede any other territory and his people will not accept anything less than the defeat of Russia.  In a new interview with Fox News' Bret Baier the Ukrainian president explained what a true victory for his war-torn country would look like.  'A victory of truth means a victory for Ukraine and Ukrainians,' Zelensky told the Special Report host. 'The question is when it will end. That is a deep question. It's a painful question. Besides victory, the Ukrainian people will not accept any outcome.'  When Baier asked if Zelensky was willing to cede Ukrainian territory to Russia to secure a peace deal, Zelensky held firm.   In a new interview Zelensky said he was not willing to cede Ukrainian territory to Russia to secure a peace deal The bodies of civilians killed by Russian shelling are gathered to be transferred to a mortuary in Irpin, Ukraine, on March 31 Ukrainian soldiers collect bodies of civilians killed by the Russian forces at the destroyed bridge in Irpin close to Kyiv, Ukraine, on Thursday, March 31,...
    A British man has escaped from the devastated city of Mariupol by walking to Russia after becoming trapped with his wife for almost a month in ‘hell on earth’. Charlie Gilkeson, 68, a lecturer from Yorkshire, said the couple felt ‘very, very lucky’ after surviving the ferocious fighting for control of Mariupol, the key Ukrainian port, which has been blown apart and left blazing by weeks of relentless Russian bombardment. ‘It was just explosions everywhere,’ he said. ‘You could not walk anywhere. Every explosion could be your last moment on earth. Every second could be your final one alive.’ Charlie Gilkeson, 68, is a lecturer from Yorkshire who walked from Mariupol to Russia on foot alongside his Russian wife, pictured on the right, fleeing deadly shelling from Putin's army One month after the war began, Mariupol now encapsulates the horrors of the invasion. Satellite images show a ruined landscape with burning buildings and destroyed homes, yet almost 100,000 people remain in what the local council have called the ‘ashes of a dead land’. Mr Gilkeson, whose wife Iryna comes from...
    A Russian state television host has attacked Arnold Schwarzenegger just days after the Austrian-American actor made an emotional video imploring Russians to learn 'the truth' of Putin's bloody war.  In a video shared to his 22.2million Instagram followers and media company ATTN's Facebook page, 74-year-old Schwarzenegger shared his love for Russia and the Russian people before making scathing remarks to Putin and the Kremlin. But the video has now attracted the attention of those working for Kremlin-backed television channels. Vadim Gigin, a Putin apologist and the host of Sunday Evening With Vladimir Solovievon on ONT, said: 'That face is the cover page of American imperialism and colonialism. 'Not the caricature image of Uncle Sam, but this Schwarz, in a Hollywood production. 'He, in California, will tell us, who live here… the truth? That is their approach towards us.' Gigin is Belarusian and was sanctioned by the European Union, subjected to a travel ban and had his assets frozen between 2011 and 2016 in response to the 2010 presidential election in Belarus. Announcing the sanctions, the EU Council said Gigin was 'one of...
    Tucker Carlson on Monday night strongly defended his take on the Russia-Ukraine war, shrugging off once again accusations of being a Kremlin propagandist and mocking the hosts of The View for demanding he be investigated. Carlson, the most-watched cable news host of last year, has antagonized many by questioning why Joe Biden is getting the United States involved in the Ukraine war, and defending Vladimir Putin's excuse for the invasion - to protect his sphere of influence. He has claimed Biden wanted the war to promote his ambitious plan for renewable energy, punish the middle class, and distract from the pandemic.  Carlson's broadcasts have been aired on Russian state television. On Monday night, Carlson highlighted the long list of people who have attacked him for his views, quoting Mitt Romney, MSNBC host Joe Scarborough, and Russian-American Washington Post columnist Max Boot. He reserved special scorn for the hosts and guests on daytime talk show The View, who called for Carlson to be investigated by the Department of Justice. 'What Tucker Carlson parrots every night on Fox News, what Tulsi Gabbard...

    A French restaurant called La Maison de la Poutine says that it has been getting insulting calls and even threats from people who have confused the signature dish in its name with Russian President Vladimir Putin. La Maison de la Poutine, which has locations in Paris and Toulouse, is named for the popular Canadian dish poutine, which is made up of frites, cheese curds, and gravy. The eatery has no connection to Russia or its ruler, but some very confused and angry callers believe otherwise, prompting La Maison de la Poutine to take a stand on social media last week. La Maison de la Poutine says that it has been getting insulting calls and even threats from people who have confused the dish name with Russian President Vladimir Putin (stock image) The French restaurant reminded people on Twitter that they are not affiliated with the Russian leader and revealed they've had insulting and threatening calls 'For the past few days, the Russian dictator, Vladimir Poutine, has been at the center of a chilling news,' the restaurant wrote in a message on Twitter. 'In this...
    The temperature in Mariupol will drop below freezing once again tonight. And the residents of the besieged Ukrainian port will have to endure this in their makeshift underground shelters without heating, without electricity and without water, as the Russians have cut off supplies. They need food, too, but all the Russians send are missiles and bombs.  Red Cross volunteers, trying to use one of the alleged safe corridors in and out of the city, found it strewn with landmines. For Vladimir Putin, no tactic, however repulsive, is off the table. Ukrainian refugees arrive in Berlin from Poland. So far more than 1.5 million people have fled Ukraine since the Russian invasion on February 24 A Ukrainian soldier helps evacuees gathered under a destroyed bridge in Irpin, northwest of Kyiv. Russian president Vladimir Putin has been heavily criticised for his troops bombing civilian areas Having failed so far to win militarily in the face of heroic resistance, he has now decided to bomb ordinary Ukrainians to pieces or starve them to death.  Hundreds of thousands of lives are at risk —...
    Ukrainian President Zelensky's wife has plead with media to 'tell the terrible truth' that Putin's troops are killing children 'consciously and cynically'. Olena Zelenska took to Instagram to say Russians had been killing Ukrainian children since Putin's forces invaded on February 24. She asked Nato to implement a no-fly zone over Ukraine to 'save our children, because tomorrow it will save yours'. She said: 'The Russian occupiers are killing Ukrainian children. Consciously and cynically. Olena Zelenska (pictured) took to Instagram to say Russians had been killing Ukrainian children since Putin's forces invaded on February 24 An 18-month-old boy named Kirill (pictured being carried by his father) was fatally wounded in the the southern city of Mariupol after Russian forces shelled Ukraine's second city just minutes into an agreed ceasefire on Saturday She wrote: 'When people in Russia say that their troops are not hurting the civilian population, show them these pictures!' 'I have to tell you about it. At least 38 children have already died in Ukraine.  'And this figure might be increasing this very moment due to the shelling...
    Russians are now starting to flee their own country and are packing trains to Finland over fears that President Vladimir Putin will shut the borders and leave them unable to escape the fall-out from Western sanctions.   Helsinki train station was packed with Russian passengers desperately fleeing from St Petersburg on Thursday.     'We decided with our families to go back as soon as possible, because it's unclear what the situation will be in a week,' Muscovite Polina Poliakova told AFP as she wheeled her suitcase along platform 9. Travelling 'is hard now because everything is getting cancelled,' added Beata Iukhtanova, her friend who studies with her in Paris, where the pair were headed. The Allegro express train linking St Petersburg to the Finnish capital is currently the only open rail route between Russia and the EU. Helsinki train station was packed with Russian passengers desperately fleeing from St Petersburg on Thursday It is therefore one of the few remaining ways out of the country since the widespread airspace closures in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine a week ago. 'The trains...
    French President Emmanuel Macron tonight insisted that the world was ‘not at war with Russia or its people’, but only with Vladimir Putin. In a hard-hitting national TV address on Wednesday evening, the head of state addressed the ongoing conflict in Ukraine. ‘There are no NATO troops or bases in Ukraine, and Russia has not been attacked,’ said Mr Macron, as multiple cities in Ukraine came under brutal attack. French President Emmanuel Macron tonight (pictured giving a television address) insisted that the world was ‘not at war with Russia or its people’, but only with Vladimir Putin Mr Macron held multiple meetings with Mr Putin (pictured), including one in Moscow, before Russia invaded Ukraine last Thursday. Portraying Russian president Vladimir Putin as ‘the aggressor' while standing in front of the flags of France, Ukraine and the European Union, Mr Macron said: ‘This war is the fruit of a spirit of revenge born of a revisionist reading of the history of Europe. ‘Russian forces are besieging the most important Ukrainian cities. The days to come will probably be harder and harder....
    Apple has paused all product sales in Russia in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The move comes after Mykhailo Fedorov, Ukraine's digital minister, sent a letter to Apple CEO Tim Cook, pleading with him to suspend all sales and services in Russia, including the App Store. Apple confirmed on Tuesday that it was moving to halt Russian sales, which Fedorov said he hopes will infuriate younger Russians and motivate them to protest against the ongoing invasion of Ukraine.  Apple said in a statement: 'We are deeply concerned about the Russian invasion of Ukraine and stand with all of the people who are suffering as a result of the violence.'  Apple has paused all product sales in Russia in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Pictured: Apple CEO Tim Cook 'We are supporting humanitarian efforts, providing aid for the unfolding refugee crisis, and doing all we can to support our teams in the region.'

    As we left the car, there was a loud thump, followed quickly by two more thuds from the edge of the small town. ‘That is shelling,’ said the Ukrainian soldier beside me, stating the obvious. We entered the kindergarten, with its brightly coloured walls and cheery cartoon stickers on the lockers for the coats of pupils. But the children were at home, still recovering from the missile that ripped through their classroom wall last week. ‘There was an explosion and glass flew, smoke, all that,’ said Natalya Slesareva, 54, one of three adults rushed to hospital with concussion after Thursday’s attack. ‘Then we realised that it was shelling. It was during breakfast time.’ Ian Birrell in Ukraine pictured with the helicopters in MI8 belonging to the Armed Forces The attack on children at the start of the school day in Stanytsia Luhanska highlighted the escalation of conflict along the 173-mile frontline that runs through eastern Ukraine between areas run by the Kiev government and Moscow-backed separatists. Yesterday saw scores more shells fired over the border, killing two Ukrainian soldiers and...
    Friday, Fox News Channel’s Tucker Carlson opened his program by highlighting what he described as a “secret alliance” between journalists those that journalists are expected to hold accountable. The “Tucker Carlson Tonight” host concluded that ultimately the media were not acting in the best interest of the public at large, which he said made them our “enemies.” Transcript as follows: CARLSON: Well, for five years, we have watched the news media treat Donald Trump in a way that no American President has ever been treated. Richard Nixon himself disgraced, impeached, forced from office in the end got a pass by comparison to Donald Trump. Reporters hate Trump with an all-consuming mania. They hit him so intensely that at times it’s been amusing to watch. If Donald Trump announced a cure for cancer at tonight’s rally in Minnesota, CNN would denounce him for fixing drug prices. That’s true. If you’re a fair-minded person, it has been infuriating to watch this. It’s too dishonest. It’s also patronizing because it’s almost unbelievably stupid. Trump spied for Russia. Trump works for Putin. Trump is...
    VA Secretary Robert Wilkie defended President Donald Trump following last week’s stunning Atlantic report during a CNN interview Sunday. Dana Bash asked Wilkie about Trump allegedly disparaging fallen soldiers and said CNN has confirmed a detail of the report. “Have you ever heard the president disparage U.S. service members or veterans?” “Absolutely not,” Wilkie said. “And I would be offended too if I thought it was true. Again, I think anonymous are the same people that brought you fake heart attacks, fake strokes, Russian collusion. So, I am very proud that this president has led to a renaissance at Veterans Affairs.” He mentioned CNN’s own reporting on the VA under the Obama administration and touted Trump administration successes. Bash went back to the Atlantic report and told Wilkie that CNN has not reported anything about strokes. She continued on to note how multiple news outlets have corroborated parts of the Atlantic report and asked, “How can you be sure that that is not true, especially since you weren’t there?” Wilkie again knocked the anonymous sourcing and said, “What I...
