Russian language and literature will no longer be taught in Ukraine after Kiev updated the national school curriculum

Considering Crimea is now Russian, and Donbass, Zaporozhye, Nikolaev, Odessa and Transnistria all will be soon, there won't be much of Ukraine left to impose this ridiculous restriction on.

Over 70% of UK companies have suffered the effects of anti-Russia sanctions since February, the Daily Mail reports

I'm sure all those UK companies suffering losses from the pointless sanctions on Russia are still jumping with joy at sticking it to Putin, right? Especially, considering that Russia has weathered the sanctions quite well.

IAEA visit to the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant is being blocked by the UN to avoid confirming Kiev shelled the facility

_The UN doesn’t want IAEA monitors to confirm Kiev was shelling the power plant, says local administration _

A quick "cui bono?" will zoom in on who's responsible for the shelling of the nuclear power plant.

Is it the Russians? Zaporozhye will soon be liberated by the Russians. The region is Russian speaking. A referendum will be held there on whether to secede from Ukraine and become part of Russia. It is expected to go overwhelming in favour of joining Russia, like Crimea's referendum did. The power station will be the energy supply for the region. It therefore makes no sense for the Russians to destroy it. They need it. And they won't want the ethnic Russians there irradiated from the fallout of the plant's destruction.

Could it be the Ukrainians? They will want to scupper the Russians' drive to take the region. A destroyed power source would do that. Moreover, the ensuing chaos from a destroyed nuclear plant would prevent the referendum taking place. So yes, it could be the Ukrainians. It is indeed likely to be the Ukrainians behind the shelling.

Foreign Secretary Liz Truss has a comfortable lead over Rishi Sunak to become the UK’s next leader, a poll says

Conservative supporters were once upon a time the best educated among the public. Now, they're clueless morons. The fact that Liz Truss was appointed into a role (of foreign secretary) in which she is visibly way out of her depth has gone right over their heads. What does this say for members of the Tory party?

Ukrainian MP Aleksey Goncharenko appeared to confirm that the UK was preparing plans for an attack on the Crimea Bridge

The UK government has either gone stark raving mad because it's blindly inviting WW3, or it wants WW3.

The Crimea Bridge provides a crucial link between Crimea and its motherland. It is a part of Russia. Striking it means striking Russia. And the Russians have warned they will strike back, possibly meaning directly on the Collective West, if that happened.

The fact the bridge is also an engineering marvel must create a feeling of bitter envy among British elites, who, to echo Putin's priceless comment, are suffering from imperial delusions.

The increase will also begin in March, rather than January, the government says.

"As well as being lower than RPI, the increase will be delayed until March."

This is also a clear admission they can't (or don't intend to) solve the current inflation problem any time soon.

On the frontline of the wildfires in France is a tactical team trying to stay ahead of the flames.

This forest fire in Gironde was caused by one of the most common causes of forest fires: arson. (The other is negligence.) No mention of that by the #BBC.

Energy bills in the UK will cost more than two months’ wages in 2023 unless the government intervenes, the Trades Union Congress warns

This echoes a slightly earlier post of mine today, that is, that there is no opposition in British politics. No one is calling for removal of sanctions on Russia with an immediate arrest of weapons donations to Ukraine. Government says stick it together with spit, opposition says, no no, that's dirty, use water..

The Labour leader will set out his plan on Monday - with no detail yet on how the freeze would be funded.

Opposition for opposition''s sake. Starmer would never get to the root of the problem (pointless sanctions on Russia, billions' worth of weapons to Ukraine and the massive lockdown costs), but instead calls for what he would never implement himself, that is, a bigger Band Aid.
