Inflation in America is slowing down, but even more expensive items, such as food and fuel, are being monitored. The British paper warns that the oil giants have projects that will devastate climate conditions, hoping that governments around the world will not take additional protection steps. Poland and Slovakia will visit Western leaders to persuade them to accept Ukraine as a candidate for membership. The services from Moscow claim that the biochemical laboratories in Lugansk planned to infect the pro-Russian population with tuberculosis, and that Kiev plans to impose a “Syrian scenario” on Russia. Marcon offered Ukraine a “consolation prize”.

Rising prices continue in the United States

“Inflation is slowing, but price increases are swaying,” is the headline in the New York Times. There is still a lot of pressure that affects the growth of inflation and puts households in a challenging situation, while the White House and the Federal Reserve are trying to put the economy in a safer direction. Annual inflation changed for the first time after a long time in April, but the cost index still increased by 8.3 percent, which is extremely fast. At the same time, the measures that are being closely monitored regarding the price of food and fuel, however, have not prevented the increase in prices.

“Prolonging the war will be a test for the unity of the West,” is another headline on the front page of the American daily. The West united against the Russian war in Ukraine faster and more wholeheartedly than anyone expected, the text reads. But as the war lasts longer, what will remain months and maybe years later is a test of the determination of Western countries, where European and American officials are wondering whether the growing economic loss will erode this solidarity over time.

Danger of “carbon bombs”

“Carbon bombs will cause a climate catastrophe,” is the main headline on the front page of the Guardian. The greats of oil and gas are planning mass projects that threaten to advance the climate crisis. If governments do not react, these companies will continue to make big profits “while the world burns”. The largest producers of fossil fuels are secretly planning projects that will take the climate away from internationally allowed temperature limits and cause a catastrophic global blow, according to research in this paper. The exclusive data announced by the Guardian in the text reveal that these companies are gambling in multimillions as opposed to stopping global warming: their huge investments in future fuel production can only pay off if states do not take the necessary steps urgently.

The British daily at the top of the page also writes that “Russian troops accused of killing civilians will be the first to face war crimes trials”.

Tuberculosis and the “Syrian scenario”

Moscow claims that Ukraine tried to infect the pro-Russian population in the Luhansk People’s Republic with tuberculosis and that it allowed the Pentagon to undertake experiments on people in the psychiatric ward of Kharkov, the Russian state agency RT reports. Speaking about the findings of the Ministry of Defense when it comes to alleged American funding of biological weapons laboratories in Ukraine, the head of Russia’s Radioactive, Chemical and Biological Protection Service Igor Kirilov claims that evidence has been found that Kiev tried to infect Slavyanoserbsk residents in Luhansk region highly pathogenic tuberculosis virus in 2020. Namely, the flyers were soaked in this agent and distributed in the village of Stepovoe.

In a separate piece of news, Rasha Tudej reports that Moscow has accused the Ukrainian authorities of agreeing to use weapons of mass destruction and planting them on the Russian army. The incident will be used to provoke an investigation such as the “Syrian scenario” in order to present false evidence and point the finger at the wrong culprits. The Russian service reminded that a similar event was fabricated in the Syrian Duma in 2018, when the United States, Britain and France immediately blamed Damascus and launched attacks on Syrian territory before any investigation could begin.

A consolation prize from Macron

The European political community is a consolation prize for the contenders for joining the EU, Politika writes under the title “Macron cooled Zelenski’s ambitions”. A “cold shower” arrived from Strasbourg for Kiev, which he hoped to receive a correct map from Ursula von der Layen, which shows a shortcut for entering the European Union. On Europe Day, just when the administration of Volodymyr Zelensky diligently filled in the second part of the questionnaire for EU membership, Emanuel Macron told the European Parliament that Ukraine is a “warm member of Europe”, but that it will take years to become part of the union. In order not to completely discourage the Ukrainian government, the French president offered a consolation prize to Kiev at the end of the Conference on the Future of Europe: entry into a new, broader format – the European political community.

“Pristina is applying for membership in the Council of Europe today,” is another headline at the top of the page. The President of Serbia, Aleksandar Vučić, arrived in Brussels yesterday afternoon to attend a dinner organized by the Head of Diplomacy of the European Union, Giuseppe Borel, for the leaders of the Western Balkans. Upon her arrival in Brussels, Vučić received the news that the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Provisional Institutions will submit a request for the membership of the so-called Kosovo in the Council of Europe today.
