Life in Moscow has not changed much since the war with Ukraine began in February. Liz Truss officially took over the position of British Prime Minister with a “brutal cleaning of the cabinet”. The European Commission proposed to cancel the agreement with Russia on obtaining visas on preferential terms for the EU. Moscow regrets that the report of the International Atomic Energy Agency does not name those responsible for the targeting of Zaporozhye, stressing that the suggestion that the power plant should be demilitarized is “frivolous”. Americans rated Gazprom’s video as “creepy”.
In Moscow, everything is the same as before
“Juul to Settle for $438 Million,” headlined the front page of the New York Times. Namely, Juul Labs, an American company that produces electronic cigarettes and disposable cartridges filled with nicotine vapor, which is fighting for survival in the United States, has conditionally agreed to agree to a $438 million settlement due to an investigation in almost 30 states that its marketing triggered the vapor inhalation crisis in young people. The company is banned from advertising to young people, funding school education and misrepresenting the nicotine levels in its products.
The central photo shows GUM, a shopping center in Moscow, where consumption has continued to grow since the beginning of the war in Ukraine. The title of the text below is “War, out of sight and (for many) out of mind”. Recently, an exercise of elite paratroopers accompanied by pyrotechnics was shown on the Red Square in Moscow. An Egyptian performer dressed as a pharaoh drove around waving an ankh, an ancient symbol of life, while a band played “Katyusha,” a Soviet patriotic war song. The newspaper spoke with citizens of the Russian capital who testified that their lives have not changed much since February, when the invasion of Ukraine began.
Trasova took over the cabinet
Liz Truss insists the UK will weather the storm of its worst cost-of-living crisis in recent memory as she takes over as Prime Minister with a brutal cabinet purge, the front-page story of the Guardian. In her first Downing Street address as Prime Minister, Trasova promised to urgently tackle the energy crisis with a plan to freeze bills at £2,500 a year, “and her survival in Number 10 depends on it”.
“The sun went out, and then the rain started,” is another headline related to the handover of power in Britain. “He went away in the sun, she came in after a heavy downpour,” reads the text. Boris Johnson performed as well as Donald Trump – the former with aspirations to return, judging by his last address from this place.
The EU is terminating the visa agreement
Yesterday, the European Commission officially addressed the Council of the EU with a proposal to completely suspend the Agreement on Issuing Visas with Russia, Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform reports. “Russia continues to violate international law with its illegal military actions, committing crimes against Ukrainians and undermining European and global security and stability. These moves are contrary to the fundamental principles on the basis of which the visa agreement was concluded and are against the interests of the EU and member states,” said European Commission member Jiva Johansson.
The complete reconstruction of Ukraine “after the victory in the war started by Russia” will be the largest project in Europe and can currently be roughly estimated at a billion dollars, said Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and also reported by Ukrinform. “The general reconstruction of Ukraine will be the biggest economic project in Europe of our time,” he pointed out.
Moscow regrets that the IAEA does not name the culprit
We regret that the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) does not want to identify the culprit for targeting the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, while its proposal to demilitarize the plant is ‘frivolous’, said the Permanent Representative of Russia to the UN, Vasili Nebenzia, as reported by the Russian state news agency RT . IAEA Director General Rafael Grossi personally led a team of inspectors last week and had the opportunity to experience the artillery attack firsthand. However, the IAEA report published yesterday did not mention who targeted the plant, although the Ukrainian command publicly admitted that its target was the vicinity of Energodar. Nebenzia also pointed out that Kyiv made a “monstrous attempt” to take over the power plant during the international inspection.
The European Commission has supported the proposal to cancel the agreement with Moscow, which allows Russian citizens to apply for visas under simplified procedures, RT also reports. Under the new rules, obtaining EU visas will be more expensive and take longer. If the Council of the EU accepts the proposal, the Russians will pay 80 euros instead of the current 35 for the visa application, for which they will have to wait up to 45 days.
“Creepy video” from Moscow
Politika writes about Vladimir Putin’s energy ultimatum to the West under the title “Without the lifting of sanctions, there will be no Russian gas”. A harsh north wind is blowing through snow-covered European cities. Icebergs swim in rivers, frozen people walk through the streets. The North Stream 1 facility is close at hand. These are images from a video broadcast yesterday by the Russian Gazprom, which represent a simulation of the upcoming winter in Europe without Russian gas. The American network SiEnBiSi rated it as a “creepy video”. A day earlier, the Kremlin announced that the gas supply would be cut off until Western sanctions hindering the overhaul are lifted.
The top of the page also announced a conversation with the president of the New DSS, Miloš Jovanović, who says that “the letter from Solac and Macron is an insult to the intelligentsia.” “I interpret that letter as their proverbial insult to our intelligence. Give up Kosovo and Metohija for the sake of a bright future. “Give yourself up so you can be better and become part of our very western family,” he says.
Personal showdown of the boss on national TV
The owner of Pink has been dealing with the famous YouTuber on his channel for days, writes Danas under the title “Mitrović’s personal confrontation on the national frequency”. The conflict started when Bogdan Ilić aka Baka Prase accused Željko Mitrović of owing him money. Then there were mutual accusations of who was guilty of murdering whom, and Mitrović even published a threatening song with the text “Take out your spear, attack Piglet, hit him, hit him, come on son, hit him”. “Mitrović has the opportunity to exercise his rights through the court, and the showing of the announced documentary about Ilić represents an abuse of the national frequency and a violation of the law,” says Zoran Gavrilović.
At the top of the page, the paper also reports that Belgrade is awaiting a risky September 17. Unofficially, the promotion of the graduates of the Military Academy was unexpectedly moved to the same day as Europride. Recommendations have been issued for all those coming to Pride, and are similar to “tips for a semi-war zone”.
