Hurricane Ian left Florida residents without electricity and drinking water, destroying homes and boats. Today, the Russian president is expected to sign documents on the annexation of four regions of Ukraine to Russia. Vladimir Putin declared Kherson and Zaporozhye “independent territories”. After the ceremonial annexation, the document is further sent to the Constitutional Court in Moscow, and then to the Russian Duma for a vote. Increased threats from a nuclear conflict in the world reminded of the devastated shelters in Serbia.

The hurricane left Florida without power

“Shocking road of wrecks across Florida,” headlined the front page of the New York Times alongside photos of flooding in Port Charlotte and broken boats in Fort Myers. The devastation caused by Hurricane Ian was made clearer as people across southwest Florida lost power, drinking water and homes yesterday, and Gov. Ron DeSantis said it would take years to repair the damage.

“Britain’s gambling with new tax breaks worries experts,” is another headline at the top of the page. The IMF’s rebuke this week underlined one of the biggest risks of the UK government’s plan to cut taxes on high earners, which could fuel accelerated inflation and destabilize markets at this uncertain economic time.



Secession, officially

Liz Truss will hold urgent talks with the head of the independent fiscal watchdog because he failed to reduce panic in the financial market and secure Tory support for her radical economic plan, writes the Guardian. In a highly unusual move, the Prime Minister will meet with Richard Hughes of the Office for Budget Responsibility, and Chancellor Kwasi Kwarteng, before receiving the draft fiscal forecast for next week.

At the top of the front page, the Guardian also announces that Russian President Vladimir Putin will today sign documents to annex territories in occupied Ukraine. Putin is expected to sign the annexation of the territories of the Ukrainian regions of Donetsk, Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye, where fake referendums were held to obtain a mandate to take over the territories.



Putin signed “independence”

Russian President Vladimir Putin signed the recognition of Kherson and Zaporozhye as “independent territories” after the pseudo-referendums held there, Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform reports. Putin justifies his act of aggression by “universally accepted principles and norms of international law” which are written in the UN charter. His decree on the recognition of the independence of the mentioned regions “enters into force” on September 29.

In Kherson, the occupiers evicted residents from several lodgings in order to accommodate the soldiers of the Russian occupying forces who came to reinforce the units, Ukrinform also reports.



Joining Russia follows

Head of state Vladimir Putin yesterday signed documents recognizing the former Ukrainian regions of Kherson and Zaporozhye as independent sovereign states, the Russian state news agency RT reports. As recalled, this signing comes on the eve of an official ceremony during which the Russian president is expected to sign agreements on the annexation of the mentioned regions, as well as the two republics in Donbass, Russia. The agreements are then submitted to the Constitutional Court of Russia and then ratified in the Duma.

In another news item that appeared on the RT portal this morning, Kremlin spokesman Dmitri Peskov stated that the damage to the Russian gas pipelines Middle Stream 1 and 2 indicates a probable “terrorist act”. As he said, at the moment it is difficult to say with certainty what happened, but “the level of destruction shows that it really is a terrorist attack”. “It is hard to imagine that such a move could have been undertaken at all without the help of some of the great powers,” he pointed out.



900 million to energy companies

Necessary defense will be possible even in situations where the attack has not even started, and it is being undertaken in order to eliminate the danger of an upcoming attack – if this proposal from the working text of amendments to the Criminal Code is adopted after a public hearing, as was said last week at the counseling of criminals in Zlatibor, and is the main topic on the first page of the Policy. Changes to the legal provisions were initiated by the Minister of Police.

“Energy companies 900 million euros in loans”, is another headline at the top of the page. In the first seven months, the state paid 105.6 billion dinars to public companies in the field of energy, but for now, these payments are recorded as loans and not as state expenses.



Shelters devastated

The main topic of the newspaper Danas is threats of nuclear conflict and possible protection of Serbian citizens with the headline “Shelters devastated, equipment outdated”. According to the latest official data, the Public Enterprise “Shelter” has under its authority 1,442 public and block shelters in the territory of 15 municipalities in Serbia, or more than 300,000 square meters of shelter space. While the authorities claim that the shelters can be brought to their purpose in 24 hours, that they are equipped and that citizens do not need to worry, experts say that due to carelessness, the shelters were left without the most necessary equipment.

Another headline at the top of the page reads “An ‘excellent’ interview for members of the ruling party”.
