    Students in the pro-Kremlin eastern regions of Ukraine have released a cover version of a popular sea shanty - and changed the lyrics to glorify Russia's war of aggression.   British folk singer Nathan Evans, from Airdrie, North Lanarkshire, had last year released his rendition of the traditional sea shanty Wellerman, which dates from the mid-1800s and tells the story of a New Zealand whaling ship. The song topped the UK singles chart and became a smash hit internationally, but its distinctive melody is now being used to spout pro-Russian propaganda amid the country's invasion of neighbouring Ukraine.   Students from the self-proclaimed Luhansk People's Republic have now released a version of the song with new lyrics, telling listeners to be 'proud of the motherland'. Young women seemingly dressed in World War I-style nurse uniforms form the letters 'Z' and 'V' - which are not part of the Cyrillic alphabet but which appear on invading Russian vehicles - and sing about the importance of patriotism.  would be involved in butchering whales after they had been caught in a process called tonguing.  Explaining why sea...
    Moscow is on the brink of an historic default on its sovereign debt as sanctions begin to take their toll on the Russian economy.  Credit ratings agency Standard & Poor downgraded Moscow from 'junk' to 'selective default' on Friday after Russia tried to make foreign bond payments in roubles on Monday when they were due in dollars. Vladimir Putin's government is unable to make dollar payments from accounts held at American banks after the US Treasury stepped in to halt them in the latest wave of sanctions imposed on Russia for invading Ukraine. S&P said in a statement that its decision was based partly on its opinion that sanctions on Russia 'are likely to be further increased in the coming weeks, hampering Russia's willingness and technical abilities to honour the terms and conditions of its obligations to foreign debtholders'.   The Kremlin has warned that while it is willing to pay its foreign debts, it would do so in roubles so long as its overseas accounts in foreign currencies remain frozen. Russia still has a 30 day grace period in which to convert...
    A nuclear safety expert has warned that a radiation monitoring lab in Chernobyl village has been raided, with burglars looting radioactive ingredients which could be mixed with explosives to create a 'dirty bomb' as Russian troops continue to advance the invasion. Anatolii Nosovskyi, director of director of the Institute for Safety Problems of Nuclear Power Plants (ISPNPP) in Kyiv, said he has lost contact with the lab so the 'fate of these sources is unknown to us'. He told Science that if such a bomb were to be made, created with the radioactive isotopes and radioactive waste pieces said to be taken, a wide area risks being contaminated. The Kremlin's forces occupied the Chernobyl station (pictured in 2017) in the first days of the invasion last month Mr Nosovskyi added that Putin's forces left firefighters unable to put out blazes in the exclusion zone, risking a 'significant deterioration of the radiation situation in Ukraine and throughout Europe'.  He said remote measurements don't suggest that the concentrations of radioactive particle in the smoke pose a health hazard, but added that an automated monitoring...
    Fox News analyst Gen. Jack Keane, citing what he called “excellent sources” in a Thursday segment, said that “the Biden administration has been putting pressure” on Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to make a deal with Russia’s Vladimir Putin. This claim comes amid Moscow’s invasion of the Eastern European country that has lasted a month. Appearing on Martha Maccallum’s show, Keane called the apparent development “pretty shameful.” “I have it on excellent sources that for more than a week now, the Biden administration has been putting pressure on President Zelensky to cut a deal. And that is shameful. Really shameful,” he said. “And I’m convinced it’s happening. And we got to get off of that page and get on the page to helping Zelensky win this war and have the resolve to stand up to the threats of [Weapons of Mass Destruction] that Putin is making.” Russia has threatened to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine, where their military is suffering significant losses. The U.S. and NATO allies have given military and other assistance to Ukraine in addition to repeated condemnations of Russia, Putin, and the unprovoked invasion. The United States...
    Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on Wednesday urged citizens around the world to take to the streets to protest Russia's invasion of his country. 'Come with Ukrainian symbols to support Ukraine, to support freedom, to support life,' Zelensky said in a video address in English. 'Come to your squares, to your streets, make yourselves visible and heard.' In a passionate speech on the eve of a one-month anniversary of Russia's invasion, Zelensky urged people around the globe 'to stand against the war starting from March 24... and after then' to speak up against Russia's bloody war. 'Show your standing, come from your offices, your homes, your schools and your universities, come in the name of peace,' Zelensky said. Hundreds of civilians have been killed, hundreds more injured and over three million Ukrainians have fled their country since Russia invaded its neighbour on February 24 with the goal of thwarting its pro-Western course.

    Deputy Secretary of State Wendy Sherman said on Sunday that China will have to make "some tough decisions" regarding its relationship with Russia amid Moscow's invasion of Ukraine. Appearing on "Fox News Sunday," Sherman said it remains to be seen how Russia's invasion has impacted its relationship with China, one of the country's closest allies. "We saw Russia and China come closer together, certainly before the Olympics, putting out a long manifesto about their partnership and how they were going to move forward together. And at the same time, we'd seen China pretty uncomfortable with an invasion of a sovereign country," said Sherman. "I think the PRC watching very closely, has to make some tough decisions." Sherman noted that China has stated that territorial sovereignty is key, and said that she hoped China would stand in agreement with a country's right to decide its own political future. She also acknowledged the impact that Putin's attack on Ukraine has already had.

    White House press secretary Jen Psaki on Friday blamed rising gas prices on Vladimir Putin's invasion of the Ukraine as the administration indicated it was considering a ban on Russian oil as punishment on the Kremlin. 'The reason why the price of gas is going up is not because of steps the president has taken they are because President Putin is invading Ukraine, and that is creating a great deal of instability in the global marketplace,' Psaki said. And Cecilia Rouse, the chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisers, hinted that a ban on Russian oil and gas into the American market was an option. 'We are looking at options that we can take right now, if we were to cut the U.S. consumption of Russian energy - but what's really most important is that we maintain a steady supply of global energy,' she noed. White House press secretary Jen Psaki blamed rising gas prices on Vladimir Putin's invasion of the Ukraine Previously President Joe Biden had said of a ban on Russian energy products: 'nothing is off...
    The West's effort to curb pro-Russian websites and media outlets in reaction to Russian President Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine could lead to an increasingly fragmented internet, cyberwarfare experts say. Major social media companies, including YouTube, Facebook, TikTok, and Twitter, have moved to reduce Russian propaganda and disinformation on their platforms by banning or restricting content from Russian state media outlets such as RT, Sputnik, and others. But Russia and other countries sympathetic to its narrative can curtail those platforms and allow others to have a larger role within their borders. The resulting trend, experts say, is people seeing different content online depending on where they are and the political ideology of their respective countries. “There’s a distinct danger that we’ll have a much less unified internet than we did before,” said Glenn Gerstell, former general counsel for the National Security Agency and now a senior adviser at the Center for Strategic and International Studies. “As platforms make more determinations of what content to allow or block, they become subjective and that leads to fragmentation naturally — more pro-left platforms...
    Roman Abramovich has a big shareholding in the Russian steelmaking firm whose materials are used to make tanks Roman Abramovich has a big shareholding in the Russian steelmaking firm whose materials are used to make the tanks which are invading Ukraine. Analysts claim that the Chelsea owner transferred his shares in Evraz, the Russian steelmaking giant, directly to himself from an offshore company on February 16, eight days before Vladimir Putin ordered the Ukraine invasion. Grzegorz Kuczynski, director of the Eurasia Program at the Warsaw Institute, told Sportsmail that the reported transfer of the 28.64 per cent shareholding, from Virgin Islands-registered Greenleas International Holdings Ltd, could make it less vulnerable to the sanctions which have followed the invasion. He added that it could also make the shareholding easier to sell. The value of the shares has plummeted since Putin's forces attacked Ukraine. Kuczynski said: 'There was a risk that this offshore company would become a subject of sanctions. Evraz steel is used to build tanks, among other things. The company is important for the Russian arms industry, in this sense....
    Thursday on FNC’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” host Tucker Carlson suggested the U.S. government under President Joe Biden and some of the like-minded allies worldwide looked “ridiculous” by declaring February 16 the day Russia would invade Ukraine. February 16 came and went without an invasion, which Carlson said was Russian President Vladimir Putin playing Biden. Transcript as follows: CARLSON: So much drama, you can’t say we’re not learning a lot, though. And one topic we’ve learned a lot about over the last year is Russia and the reason we’ve learned about it is because Russia is Joe Biden’s number one favorite topic of conversation. Joe Biden can talk about Russia forever, meaning in his case for up to four minutes at a time, which at this stage is Joe Biden’s version of a filibuster. You may have asked yourself, when will Joe Biden ever stop talking about Russia? Well, very soon actually, in fact, he seems to be losing his train of thought right now. But don’t worry, he’ll be back to it. Russia is a very comfortable topic for Joe...
