The fight for abortion in the US is moving to local courts in the states, the New York Times reports. Two British officials simultaneously resigned and left Boris Johnson’s government, the Guardian reports. Heavy weapons will suppress the Russians, appealed the permanent representative of Ukraine to the OSCE, reports Ukrinform. Moscow will achieve the goal regardless of arms shipments from the West, according to RT. Why Berlin is afraid of the Ukrainian ambassador is the headline in Politics. A place in the government or a “competition for the half throne”, writes Danas

After the US Supreme Court struck down abortion rights at the federal level, the fight is moving to local courts within the states. The British chancellor and health minister resigned within minutes, bringing Prime Minister Boris Johnson to the brink of survival. The permanent representative of Ukraine in the OSCE appealed that the advanced weapons will suppress the Russian forces. Moscow says that Russia will achieve its goal, regardless of arms shipments from the West. Since the war in Ukraine began, Ukraine’s ambassador to Germany, Melnyk, has joined the harsh language and stance taken by almost all Ukrainian officials, demanding more weapons and more money from European leaders. Is a place in the government deserved by “competition in polity”.
Local fight for abortion
“Abortion Fight in the Hands of State Judiciaries,” headlined the front page of the New York Times. With the US Supreme Court banning abortion at the federal level, the fight is now shifting to individual states whose local courts could be the next “front line.” In Florida, seven judges appointed by Republican officials are to decide whether the state’s constitutional right to privacy, which has defended the right to abortion in earlier cases, remains a precedent. The Michigan court, where Democrats hold a 4-3 majority, is to evaluate whether a 91-year-old law banning abortion is constitutional.
The central photo shows Ukrainian military medics helping a soldier whose nerves have frayed due to constant bombardment. In the short text below, in addition to another one dealing with the shooting in Chicago during the Fourth of July parade, the paper referred to refugees from the Ukrainian city of Bakmut. After the fall of Luhansk, Russian forces turned to Donetsk province.
Resignations in Johnson’s government
“Prime Minister on the brink as Javid and Sunak leave,” headlined the Guardian’s front page alongside a photo of Boris Johnson. The Prime Minister was on the verge of “falling” last night after the chancellor, health minister and a string of Conservative aides dramatically resigned, dealing a devastating blow to his authority following his personal scandals. After both handed in their accusatory resignations within minutes, Rishi Sunak and Sajid Javid pointed to a lack of leadership in Downing Street. Sunak pointed out that the public expected the authorities to behave “properly, competently and seriously”. Javid wrote: “We may not have always been popular, but we were competent to work in the national interest. Unfortunately, in the current conditions, the public has concluded that we are no longer one or the other.”
Boris Johnson responded by appointing Nadim Zawahi as chancellor and Steve Barkey as health minister. The resignations of Sunak and Javid followed the departure of younger Tories, including Jonathan Gallis, a former ultra-loyalist who stepped down as personal secretary, and Bin Afolami, who stepped down as party vice-president.
“Additional weapons will suppress the Russians”
Ukrainian partners should not shy away from sending additional heavy weapons because the Russian forces will only be stopped with more powerful weapons, which also happened with Snake Island, pointed out Yevgeny Tsimbaliuk, the permanent representative of Ukraine to the OSCE in Vienna, as reported by the news agency from Kyiv Ukrinform. Russia had been peaceful for too long, he added, saying the international community now had to deal with the fact that Moscow was “destroying everything in its path.”
In a separate news item, Ukrinform also announces that US Secretary of State Antony Blinken will appeal to the G20 to press Russia to support the UN initiative to unblock Ukraine’s sea lanes, and once again warned China not to help Russia’s military campaign. “For the G20 countries, Russia should be responsible, and efforts by the UN to reopen the sea lanes for the delivery of grain should be insisted on,” said Ramin Tolui, Blinken’s assistant for economic affairs.
“Russia will achieve its goal”
The weapons that the US and its allies continue to send to Ukraine will not affect the outcome of the Russian military operation currently being conducted, said Nikolai Patrushev, the secretary of the National Security Council from Moscow. In the news on the portal of the Russian news agency RT, Patrushev is quoted as saying that the operation caused a whole series of threats not only to Russia, but to the whole world. As an example, he named the spread of neo-Nazi ideology and biological laboratories in Ukraine linked to the Pentagon.
“Belarus responds to Western sanctions”, is another headline that appeared on the RT portal this morning. The Cabinet of Ministers of Belarus has banned investors from “enemy countries” from selling their shares in 190 Belarusian companies. The decision stated that, in order to protect the interests of Belarus, “the shares have been blocked”. The announcement came after Britain announced it would impose new economic, trade and transport sanctions on Belarus over its support for Moscow. In London, it will be forbidden for Belarusian companies to deal with debt and security.
Ukrainian ambassador in Berlin
“Why Berlin is afraid of the Ukrainian ambassador”, is the headline in Politika. At first glance, it could be said that Germany is unlucky with the diplomatic representatives of certain countries, because what Ukrainian Ambassador Andrey Melnyk said in Berlin in the last few months can only be compared to the words of Richard Grenell a few years ago. The US ambassador from the time of Donald Trump, with his vocabulary and attitude towards Germany, managed to surpass all non-diplomatic moves that the Germans have remembered so far. “Since the war in Ukraine began, Melnyk has joined the harsh language and stance taken by almost all Ukrainian officials demanding more weapons and more money from European leaders,” the text reads.
At the top of the page is the headline “Đilas’ announcement of the election brought fear into the opposition”. “After the April presidential, parliamentary and Belgrade elections, there is a general impression that the opposition in Serbia is so divided and torn by leadership vanities, that in the event of a new vote in the next year, it would not be such an easy task for most of these parties to pass the census,” says the newspaper. .
Competition in half-time
Is the race for a ministerial position in the Government of Serbia a competition for polity, asks Danas under the headline “Progressives: ‘Vučić is God, Saint Sava, Prince Miloš…'”. The paper quotes some of the statements of government members. Thus, Ana Brnabić said that “the average politician in Serbia looks into the future for 20 days, and Aleksandar Vučić looks at ten years”, and Siniša Mali that “there is no person who loves and fights more for Serbia than President Aleksandar Vučić”. “Even those like Nebojsa Stefanović, whose days in power are numbered, do not fail to sing odes to the president and swear allegiance to him at every opportunity,” emphasizes Sanda Rašković Ivić.
Despite the heat wave, 2,700 people are forced to work in overheated halls, is another story at the top of the first page. The title of the text is “Jura forbade the workers to turn on the air conditioning”. “Some managers say that ‘until yesterday we were collecting hay and now we want air conditioning,'” says one of the workers. Immediately after the paper sent questions to the labor inspection, the inspectors visited Jura unannounced and ordered that the problem be solved within seven days, the text says.
