Ukraine is trying to take care of 10 million displaced people, many of whom have nowhere to return. Although almost 40 British officials resigned in one day, Prime Minister Boris Johnson has no plans to step down. The inhabitants of Luhansk are drawn into the Russian ranks with a military call “from the new homeland”. The economic crisis in Russia is milder than predicted. The European Parliament adopted a resolution on Serbia with the condition that the policy be “urgently harmonized with the EU”.

Help for millions of displaced people

“Ukraine Struggles to Help Millions Displaced,” headlined the front page of the New York Times. When she left her home in eastern Ukraine, Hana Obuzevana (71) gave the keys to a neighbor to occasionally water her flowers on the terrace, thinking she would return in a couple of weeks. Three months later, she is still sleeping with her two sons in a room in an old church building in Pavlograd in the central part of the country. Missiles destroyed her bedroom, soldiers broke the piano and the whole city fell into the hands of the Russians. She is among more than 10 million displaced Ukrainians, which is almost a third of the population. About five million people fled across the border to the countries of the European Union, which is the largest migration since World War II.

In another news story at the top of the page, the New York Times announces that, despite the low probability and random selection, two former advisers to Donald Trump, whom the former American president was not happy with, have come under scrutiny from the tax administration.



Johnson remains, even after 40 resignations

“The prime minister is desperate and delusional, clinging to the armchair”, is the main headline of the British Guardian alongside the dominant photo of Boris Johnson. The Prime Minister locked himself in the cabinet last night in an unprecedented calm, trying to stay in power after an extraordinary day during which almost 40 resignations were handed to him while the minister Michael Gove was fired by himself. Johnson is determined to fight on despite ministers calling for him to stand down. Instead, he responded by firing Gove. He previously told Johnson that his position was untenable given the number of MPs who had turned against the prime minister.

A Guardian source in Downing Street pointed out that Johnson “has no intention of leaving”. “He wants to stay and fight. The choice is either a summer of instability or a new alliance that would finally move forward and solve the crisis of increased living costs and economic growth,” says the interviewee.



Calls for war “from a new homeland”

The local population of the eastern Ukrainian cities of Severodonetsk and Lysichansk, which were temporarily occupied by Russian forces, “were tricked into joining the Russian army,” the military authorities of the Lugansk region pointed out. “The Russians have already noted that our region has been conquered and are glorifying it as a victory in the Second World War, but they have not yet reached the border of the region. They are holding the local population, and how did that happen? A man is invited to work, for example, in a water company. “In a few days, instead of receiving the first money, he receives a call, and that ‘from his new homeland,'” the announcement states.

Mikailo Podoliak, adviser to the President of Ukraine, pointed out that negotiations with Russia are held only on the level of minor humanitarian issues, Ukrinform also reports this morning. “There are certain contacts, but at the level of humanitarian subgroups. Because problems related to the exchange of prisoners and the bodies of victims should always be solved. And, if possible, certain humanitarian corridors should be opened. “From the point of view of politics and diplomacy, the dialogue is paused,” he said.



The crisis in Russia is milder than expected

The Russian news agency RT publishes Bloomberg reports from Wednesday, according to which Russia is on the way to a much milder recession than initially expected this year. The wave of oil deliveries softened the impact of the US and European sanctions. According to the data, economists from JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and other major banks are cutting their outlook for a decline to just 3.5 percent, while Russian officials, some of whom had predicted a “belt tightening” of 12 percent, are now ready to cut that in half. .

RT also announces that Washington has blacklisted several oil exporters of Iran and alleged front companies of China and the United Arab Emirates, accusing them of ignoring the ban on the export of Iranian goods to East Asia. The decision came as nuclear talks broke down again and Tehran demanded that the US lift sanctions imposed when Washington pulled out of the deal.



Serbia “to harmonize with the EU”

The resolution of the European Parliament on Serbia was adopted, Politika reports on the front page with the headline “In the EU only with the renunciation of Kosmet and Russia”. Yesterday, with 523 votes in favor, 78 against and 34 abstentions, the members of the European Parliament adopted a resolution expressing support for Serbia’s membership, but with the condition that Belgrade urgently comply with the sanctions imposed by the EU on Russia and Belarus. Amendments were also adopted in which the signing of a legally binding agreement with Pristina on the normalization of relations, “based on mutual respect”, is expected, which is the first time that such a request has been made in an official EU document.

At the top of the page there is a portrait of the President of Serbia with the headline “Vučić: We will not even consider the requests of the EP”. When asked by a journalist how he would react to allegations about the recognition of Kosovo, Aleksandar Vučić said that Serbia will answer “nicely, politely and politely – we won’t”.



Locomotives older than half a century

Due to trains that are over half a century old, constant breakdowns on Serbian railways are inevitable, writes Danas under the headline “We are driven by 50 and 60 year old locomotives”. Passengers from Belgrade were 10 hours late to Bar due to a long wait for another locomotive in Brodarevo. It is curious that the locomotive broke down twice, i.e. the one that was hired as a replacement for the first one that broke down near Valjevo also broke down. The rolling stock houses locomotives from the late sixties and early seventies of the last century. On the lines of the BG train, significantly more modern compositions – produced in the 1980s in the Soviet Union – operate.

And the newspaper Danas announces that, after the adoption of the European Parliament’s resolution on Serbia, “Europe demands the introduction of all sanctions against Russia”.
