The ports of Ukraine are of geopolitical and strategic importance, at least because they are a large transport hub in Europe. 70 foreign ships have been blocked at six Ukrainian ports (Kherson, Mykolaiv, Chernomorsk, Ochakov, Odesa, and Yuzhny).The corridors for the civilian vessels willing to leave the Ukrainian ports are secured by the Russian Navy on a daily basis from 8:00 a.m. until 7:00 p.m. At the same time, the AFU (Armed Forces of Ukraine) granted no security for civilian ships, so there is still a danger of entering the Black Sea. Moreover, not all mines in the Black Sea have been defused and some are still drifting in the waters.On May 25, the Russian Defense Ministry managed to open the first humanitarian corridor for...
The United Nations Security Council meets on May 19.United Nations (CNN)- Russia and China on Thursday vetoed a US-drafted United Nations Security Council resolution to strengthen sanctions on North Korea in a vote the US ambassador to the UN called dangerous, disappointing and likely to fuel Pyongyang's program to develop nuclear-capable missile systems.The move comes after more than a dozen North Korean ballistic missile tests this year, all of which violated previous UN resolutions and which US officials argued necessitated another international response.A resolution needs nine "yes" votes and no vetoes by the permanent members of Russia, China, France, the United Kingdom or the United States to be adopted by the UN Security...

Ukraine has been getting advanced Western weapons for nearly 2 decades now.The first such occurrence happened after the then president Viktor Yushchenko decided to join the îllégâl US invasion of Iraq in 2003, a country which, even if it wanted to, could threaten neither Ukraine nor the US or any of its allies (including neighboring Turkey) in any conceivable way...

Illustrative ImageWritten by Paul Antonopoulos, independent geopolitical analystWith the globe potentially on the brink of a food crisis caused by the lack of wheat exports from Ukraine, the West is attempting to blame Russia for this situation whilst ignoring Kiev’s culpability.
