The Ukrainian army recaptured areas in the east. The Bank of England has raised interest rates and warned that Britain is threatened with inflation of 10% by the end of the year. Moscow also aims to provoke famine, says the UN permanent representative from Ukraine, accusing the Russians of looting 400,000 tons of grain. It was not the Pentagon that targeted Russian generals, but Kiev, they say in the United States. What will the American “Ministry of Truth” be for?

Ukrainians regained the east

“Ukrainians regain areas in the east, Russia penetrates the steel plant,” is the main headline on the front page of the New York Times. The central photo shows a scene from Kramatorsk, where a man is sitting on the edge of a bed and the entire wall of the house has been torn down.

Fighting continued on Thursday across Ukraine, from Kharkov in the north where Ukrainian forces regained control, to Mariupol in the south, where Russians are penetrating the last stronghold of Ukrainians in a steel factory “while Moscow forces are trying to present something to President Vladimir Putin that could call it a victory “, the text reads. The fiercest fighting took place between the mentioned places, and north of the Donetsk region, where the country was shaking from the constant bombing.

“In the fight for abortion, pills could be the next focus,” is the second major title on the front page. If the Supreme Court overturns the “Ro v. Wade” regulation, which allows the right to abortion, the legal and cultural war over abortion that has occupied the United States for decades, it will quickly move to another front: the use of birth control pills.


Britain is threatened by 10 percent inflation

“The bank is raising interest rates and warns that inflation will reach 10 percent,” is the main headline of the British Guardian. The government is facing calls to prepare new packages of emergency financial aid for households after the Bank of England warned that the British economy would fall into recession before the end of this year. While people voted in the local elections yesterday, the bank raised interest rates from 0.75 to one percent to prevent inflation from getting worse due to the current situation and the Russian war in Ukraine. With the expected increase in energy bills in October, the bank predicts that inflation could exceed 10 percent this year, the highest since 1982.

Moscow’s goal is to provoke famine

The creation of a food supply crisis in Ukraine and around the world is probably one of Russia’s conscious intentions in the war against Ukraine, said UN Permanent Representative to Ukraine Serhiy Kishlytsia at a meeting of the Security Council, as reported by the Ukrainian state news agency Ukrinform. Russia has already plundered 400,000 tons of grain from the temporarily occupied areas such as Zaporozhye, Herosna, Donetsk and Luhansk, which makes up a third of the total reserves in that territory. “Considering that the stolen grain was supposed to be used for the next sowing, this has already increased the risk of starvation,” Kišlicia pointed out. According to him, Russia also targeted grain plants, agricultural infrastructure and fertilizer depots, and also confiscated agricultural vehicles.

During this week, 150 people were evacuated from the Azovstal steel plant, and another 300 from Mariupol, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced, and Ukrinform reports. The displaced have access to medical and financial assistance, as well as assistance in obtaining documents and contacting their families.


The Pentagon is not killing Russian generals, “but Kyiv”

The Pentagon has denied media reports claiming that it gave Ukraine information that led to the suffering of high-ranking Russian military officers, the Russian state news agency Rasha Tudej reports. Pentagon spokesman John Kirby said the United States had provided “combat data to help Ukraine defend its territory.” At the same time, according to RT, Kirby admitted that Kiev “combines” information from several unnamed sources on the basis of which “it makes its own decisions”, “which obviously shifted the blame for killing Russian generals to Ukraine itself”.

When US President Joe Biden announced on April 27 the new government’s Committee for Disinformation, which will be in the service of the Security Department, he marked “the last turn to screw up freedom”, RT states in a separate news. “This time, it is a violation of the civil rights to diversity of information,” the text reads.

Rasha Tudej also reports that the chairman of the American nuclear forces alerted the Congress by pointing out that Washington may not be able to respond to the rival’s attack due to the threat of Russia and the accelerated accumulation of strategic weapons in China. Admiral Charles Richard said that the nation has not faced such a crisis for more than 30 years. The Russian president, as he pointed out, attacked a sovereign state “using a mildly hidden nuclear threat to deter US and NATO intervention”, while China “monitors what is happening in Ukraine … and its goal is to train militarily to regain Taiwan in 2027,” he said. if not earlier. “


US Department of Truth

“Why America is establishing a ‘ministry of truth'” is the main headline in Politics. Ever since National Security Secretary Alejandro Mallorxas revealed that the White House had won the Committee on Disinformation Management, Republican journalists and representatives of Congress have begun to refer to George Orwell. According to the paper, the job description of the new department within the Ministry of National Security is to suppress disinformation fabricated by the Kremlin, but also those spread by human smugglers in order to encourage migrants to try to cross the South American border. Critics saw the new body as an attempt by the American president to establish Orwell’s “ministry of truth”, whose task is to silence everyone who thinks for a long time.

The government of the temporary institutions of Pristina, with the help of the sponsors of the so-called independence, violating international law, Politika writes in a separate news, plans to apply for membership in the Council of Europe in the fall. This could lead to the admission of the so-called Kosovo to this international organization next year, which would overthrow the 2020 Washington agreement.


Rio Tinto is back

The Australian mining giant has announced the continuation of work on the Jadar project, Danas writes, with the title “Elections are over, Rio Tinto is back”. The director of Rio Tinto, Simon Thompson, announced to the shareholders that “now that the elections are no longer on the way”, he will talk to the Government of Serbia “about all options”. Only a few days after the end of the elections, Aleksandar Vučić suddenly assessed that the decision to ban Rio Tinto was “wrong”. “It is absurd that Rio Tinto announces that it will start negotiations on violating the law with the Government of Serbia,” says Savo Manojlović.

At the top of the page is the fact that electricity bills could be a third more expensive for citizens. “The government is preparing a big increase in the price of electricity”, is the title of the text. Demostat announced that this summer, the bills of the citizens will be increased by 30 percent, and the economy by as much as 70 percent, which would immediately raise inflation in Serbia.
