A shift in dialogue, London is asking for more than a ceasefire

During the military exercise in Alaska, the first of its kind in America, some soldiers suffered severe frostbite. The “Partygate” scandal threatens to punish the British Prime Minister. Kiev in Istanbul suggested that Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk regions be discussed later. The French president told Putin that the West would not pay for gas in rubles. A new energy crisis is on the horizon, an OPEC meeting tomorrow. Rio Tinto did not leave.

Arctic war exercise

“Race of Arctic Control Rivals” is the headline on the front page of the New York Times. A photo from Alaska states that about 8,000 American soldiers took part in the first military exercise of this kind this month, and that eight of them had severe frostbite.

After parachuting into the icy interior of Alaska, Captain Weston Janone and his troops made miles of deep snow to finally set up a temporary camp. The temperature was -18, and 120 men and women who were here as part of the combat exercise had yet to set up tents. According to the text, the first such exercise of this kind was planned long before the Russian invasion of Russia, “but it was partly encouraged by Russia’s aggressive move in recent years to militarize the Arctic – the part of the world where the US and Russia share a long sea border.”

“Conflict reorganizes Europe’s consumption,” is another headline at the top, which states that governments are preparing for threats they have not had in decades. Nicolae Cuca spent his entire life on the battlefield before he was elected Prime Minister of Romania four months ago. “But he could not have imagined the need to spend millions of dollars on emergency production of potassium iodide and anti-radiation tablets in the event of a nuclear explosion, or to increase the military budget by 25 percent in just one year,” the New York Times writes.



And Johnson faces punishment

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is facing a renewed threat of being punished for the “Partygate” scandal, after the police decided yesterday to punish 20 people who attended parties in official premises and thus violated the regulations related to kovid in previous years. Yesterday, the police also rejected Johnson’s claims that the rules in the cabinet were respected, the breaking news is at the top of the British Guardian.

The move by the Metropolitan Police is considered confirmation that the government violated regulations, while the cabinet in Downing Street, which caused anger and anger by refusing to receive notifications about the fines, “showed that the rules were definitely violated.”

The main photo shows the queen who was accompanied by Prince Andrew to Westminster Abby and sat in the front row at the commemoration of the royal family to his father Philip, who passed away last year.

Negotiations between Russia and Ukraine were in the middle right corner, entitled “Doubts about Russian restraint of forces.”



About Crimea in the next 15 years

The Ukrainian state agency Ukrinform announces that the problem of the temporarily occupied territories of Donetsk, Luhansk region and Crimea will be left out of the main part of the international agreement on security guarantees for Ukraine, and they will be discussed later.

“As for problems like Crimea, it is a special clause in the agreement in which we propose that Ukraine and Russia hold bilateral talks on the status of Crimea and Sevastopol for the next 15 years,” said Mikhail Podoliak, adviser to the president and member of the Kiev negotiating team. At the same time, the Russian side was called upon to agree that neither country will use armed forces to resolve the status of Crimea during this period. When it comes to Donetsk and Lugansk, the presidents of the two countries will negotiate about them.

This morning, Ukrinform also announced that the deputies of the Canadian Parliament voted to immediately abolish visas for citizens of Ukraine and to enable them to obtain electronic travel permits quickly.



Macron will not pay in rubles

“The Pentagon has denied Biden about Ukraine,” is one of the headlines on the portal of the Russian agency Rasha Tudej. Namely, the leader of the American forces in Europe said that he was not familiar with the program of training Ukrainian soldiers in Poland, and after President Joe Biden hinted that something like that was happening “while trying to clarify the gaffe from the previous week”. The military official confirmed that there were “links” with Ukrainian troops in Poland and that “advice was shared”, but that there was no training. “He did not give details about what these ‘connections’ involved,” the text reads.

After months of disagreement, Kiev has compiled a written proposal of what it expects from the peace dialogue, RT also writes. The leader of the Russian negotiating team, Vladimir Medinski, called him “essential” and announced that he would be the representative of the Russian president. According to the Russian agency, the British Prime Minister pointed out that the ceasefire is not enough for London to lift sanctions on Russia, but that Moscow “must completely change its policy towards Ukraine.”

In a separate article, the agency quotes Reuters as saying that French President Emanuel Macron told his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin that the West “will not agree to Russia’s request to pay for gas in rubles” and that this is “impossible” for Western clients. The Kremlin only confirmed that Moscow’s proposal to pay for gas in rubles was mentioned during the talks.



A new phase of the energy crisis

Politika writes about the new phase of the world energy crisis with the title “OPEC with Moscow, Russian gas from tomorrow for rubles”. The confrontation between the leading global oil and gas producers and key Western buyers of these energy sources is entering a new, unpredictably tense phase tomorrow. And that after two key moves – on the one hand by “OPEC Plus”, and on the other by official Moscow – both announced for March 31.

Namely, the “OPEC Plus” summit, led by Saudi Arabia and Russia, should decide tomorrow whether to accept the recent appeal of the leading developed western countries (G-7), which sent on March 24 to act responsibly and increase energy supplies to the international market. , since OPEC has a key role to play in this. ” Also, the deadline set by the Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin for the government in Moscow, the Central Bank of Russia and “Gazprom” to come out with a new accounting procedure in the gas trade with enemy countries, in rubles, expires tomorrow.

At the top of the page is an interview with Ivica Dacic, SPS leader and candidate for prime minister, with the headline “We have shown that we know how to solve problems.”



Rio Tinto did not leave

The association “March from the Drina” warns that the mining giant continues to buy plots and import drilling equipment, Danas writes with the headline “Rio Tinto has not yet left Serbia”.

“March from the Drina” also published a video in which it is heard that the companies Thyssen and DNT contacted the Technical Faculty in Bor to help them with the harmonization of documentation for machines. Rio Tinto denied it. Bojana Novaković says that “the Jadar project has not only never been canceled, but is continuing at full speed”. “By March 4, 1.5 million euros have been given for two households,” points out Mariana Petković.

In a separate text, the presidential candidates speak for the paper. Zdravko Ponos says that “the government is playing with fire”. “They are not preparing to steal several mandates from the opposition, they are preparing to rob the citizens of Serbia of several more years of life … The outgoing president is a representative of Seselj’s political school of thought which interprets the state as a mechanism for governing subjects,” he said.
