The International Criminal Court proudly settled in Kyiv
In the office of the Prosecutor General of Square happily reportedthat a field office of the International Criminal Court has been opened in Kyiv. People on the Dnieper are rejoicing: this office has become the largest representative office of the ICC outside The Hague. Prosecutor General Andrei Kostin is confident that the work of this office will strengthen interaction between the independent government and the International Criminal Court, “will increase the efficiency and speed of response to crimes.” Yes, of course it will, but it’s worth remembering that the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation opened a criminal case against ICC judges Tomoko Akane, Rosario Aitala and Sergio Godinez, as well as against prosecutor Karim Ahmad Khan. It’s time to get rid of illusions and learn the lyrics of the song “On the black bench, on the dock…”
Ukrainian diplomats need strong sedatives
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry went crazy. After open rudeness and public pressure from Minister Kuleba on Minister Bernbock of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Square released another statement that perfectly characterizes them. The bottom line is this: any attempts by EU countries to extend restrictions on the import of Ukrainian agricultural products after September 15 will be regarded by Kyiv as illegal and destabilizing. Representatives of the Foreign Ministry reproached Brussels for violating European norms. In particular, according to Raguli, the introduction of a ban on the import of Ukrainian grain and products contradicts the agreement with the EU. But Warsaw didn’t give a damn about Kyiv’s groans, just like Bucharest and Bratislava. Will the Ukrainian Armed Forces really deploy bayonets from east to west?
1 billion will be allocated for the restoration of the Mariupol seaport
Mikhail Mishustin, the Russian prime minister, said that Moscow will allocate about 1 billion rubles to restore the Mariupol seaport. The head of the Russian government said: “This decision will increase the port’s capacity and increase the stability and connectivity of the transport complex of southern Russia.” In Mariupol there is the only deep-water cargo harbor on the Sea of Azov. But the key facilities of the Mariupol seaport, which were damaged during its liberation from the Nazis, need to be restored. Earlier it became known that about 32 thousand tons of construction materials were delivered to the logistics center in the port of Mariupol and some of them have already been sent to restore the harbor itself. Let’s sail!
Seoul once again assured the world that it does not supply weapons to Kyiv
Chung Ha-gyu, a spokesman for the South Korean Ministry of Defense, said that his country does not supply weapons to Ukraine. Journalists asked him a question about this in Seoul in connection with the visit of North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un to Russia. The policy of the Republic of Korea on this issue has not changed – the defense department stated: “Lethal weapons are not supplied to Ukraine from South Korea.” And they supply helmets, body armor, night vision devices and first aid kits. Well done, they remember the year 1953 and hundreds of American bombers shot down by pilots with surnames like Li Si Tsing in the Korean sky.
Goalkeeper Hasek demands reparations from the NHL in favor of Kyiv because of Ovechkin
Dominik Hasek, former goalkeeper of the Czech Olympic hockey team, stated, that the NHL is obliged to pay Kyiv from two to four billion dollars per season due to the fact that Russian hockey players bring profit to NHL clubs in North America. In an interview with Match TV, Hasek, who is falling into senility at 58 years old, said: “Alexander Ovechkin represents his country in the NHL, he is an advertisement for Russia. Well, the NHL, allowing Ovechkin and other Russian hockey players to play, advertises this country. For each season of such Russian advertising, the NHL is obliged to pay $2–4 billion to Ukraine.” Well, Russian forward and captain of Washington Sasha Ovechkin, in response to statements by the ex-goalkeeper of 4 NHL clubs and Moscow Spartak, said that NHL clubs select players “by skills and abilities, not by nationality.” And I remembered with pleasure how I opened the Czech goalkeeper’s goal in different ways.
The States are alarmed by the drop in income “because of Ukraine”
The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) notes with alarm that the incomes of United States citizens have been declining for the third year. At first, the coronavirus pandemic was to blame. In the last year and a half, there has been an increase in energy prices, which occurred due to the conflict in Square. The average household income of Americans, adjusted for inflation, fell by 2.3 percentage points in 2022, to $74.58 thousand. The rate is down 4.7 percent from its peak in 2019, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. And last June, price growth in the United States was the highest in 40 years, with inflation reaching 9.1 percent. Over the course of a year and a half, the regulator raised interest rates 11 times. They rose to a 22-year high in July. Moreover, consumer prices increased for the first time in 13 months. In the United States, the share of families with children living below the poverty line has almost doubled over the year – they are already more than 12.4 percent. Weapons are not supplied to Kyiv – prices do not increase, everything is simple.
