Russia-Ukraine war: IPN updates for last weekend

Ukraine’s defeat would extinct any hope of freedom in Moldova

Boris Johnson warned that if Russia were to succeed in Ukraine then it would be the end of freedom in Ukraine, would mean the “extinction of any hope of freedom” in Moldova and Georgia, and would represent a “green light to autocrats everywhere”.

New approach to Russia is needed

John Bolton, who served in the administrations of four U.S. Presidents, said Biden’s open statements about the lack of intention to intervene in the conflict in Ukraine are a “big mistake”. According to him, Biden shouldn’t have told anything about this before the Russian military operation. “If Biden hadn’t sad anything about the plans of the Western troops the last few months, it would have been better for Ukraine’s security and for world peace,” Bolton stated for the media group Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland, being quoted by Russian media.

Bolton considers a new approach to Russia should be designed following the example of “Ronald Reagan’s strategy” – a combination between harsh position and support for the opposition.

Russia following phantasmagorias of Orwell

The Russian authorities announced the initiation of the first three criminal cases over false information about the Russian troops’ actions in Ukraine. Among those charged is Veronika Belotserkovskaya, a known Russian TV presenter, author of popular cooking books and editor of the magazine Sobaka.Ru, who settled in France.

Asked about her article about the denigration of the Russian army, she said: “Oh. Shame on you, Grandpa Orwell! You’re just a puppy, life is so much richer now – you don’t have time to blink. OK. Actually, it’s not funny at all. Some kind of bottomless abyss of madness and absurdity into which we all fly at breakneck speed.”

China is for negotiations and against blocs

After the discussions between China and the United Unite, Chinese President Xi Jinping said the top priorities now are to continue dialogue and negotiations, avoid civilian casualties, prevent a humanitarian crisis and cease fighting. At the same time, China called on the world leaders to renounce the ‘cold war’ policy and confrontation of blocs and pleaded for building a balanced, efficient and sustainable construct in the region.

Citing the Chinese foreign minister, the Russian press reported that China will maintain an independent position on the situation in Ukraine and will not allow influences on the assessment of events in Ukraine.

In the name of the Father, the Son..:

Pope Francis has again denounced Russia’s “violent aggression against Ukraine” as “a senseless massacre” for which “there is no justification.” He implored “all the international actors” to “truly commit themselves to bring an end to this repugnant war.” Speaking with passion but without naming Russia, he told thousands of pilgrims from many countries gathered in St. Peter’s Square on Sunday, March 20, that “sadly the violent aggression against Ukraine does not slow down.”

Orthodox theologians from different countries recently signed a document in which the concept of Russian Would – one of the fundamental ideologies of the “special operation” – is analyzed as theological heresy. This document can form the basis of the conviction by the Russian Orthodox Church of the excommunication of the patriarch from the Pentarchy (five ancient patriarchates) that will have a meeting in Constantinople in April.

The controversy emerged after Patriarch Kiril issued a long reprimand against the secretary general of the World Council of Church where he blamed the NATO member states for the developments in Ukraine and accused the West of excessive sanctions against Russia and of galloping Russophobia.

Repetitio est mater studuorum

Ukrainian Deputy Prime Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration Olha Stefanishyna said that even if there is no legal procedure for fast-tracked EU entry, Ukraine did enough preparatory work for the EU to accept to cut the bureaucratic process. Ukraine is one of the first 20 official partners of the EU. Its electric power system was connected to the European one and many market elements do not necessitate profound analysis.

Messianic ambitions with bombs and rockets

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky stated for CNN that Putin’s claims of neo-Nazis in Ukraine show he ”might be capable of very horrendous steps”. Zelensky added that Putin is in an information bubble but he noted that remarks like this from the Russian president worry him about what he is capable of. ”If he thinks that this is his mission to conquer our territory and if he sees signs of neo-Nazis in our country, then many questions emerge about what else he is capable of doing for the sake of his ambitions, for the sake of his mission.”

“Cargo 200”, each fourth minute

Notices of death of participants in the “special operation” appear on social networking sites of the aggressor country every four minutes on average. Such a conclusion was reached by Ukrainian specialists from InformNapalm.
