… “obvious move away from the dollar”

What does this crap even mean? They’re just swapping their savings to gold - that doesn’t mean there’s suddenly no buyer for US bonds and China still has to find the US market or it’s basically fucked.

Lots of videos of empty streets in Ukraine today, as the new mobilisation laws come in to force.

Also China are reported to have dumped a record amount of US bonds in the first quarter in an obvious move away from the dollar, with the US bailing out the bank of Japan to stop them having to do the same.

Hold on there Pickle, chap. You can't be going all anti-BBC on us now.

I'm sure you're sitting back in your G-Plan recliner, admiring your complimentary portrait of King Charles in hell and thanking the devil for Donald Tusk and his rainbow laws protecting you from the evil Georgian, Slovakian, Serbian and Hungarian right-wing hordes.

Just enjoyed a very nice CLARET with this pork chop and young cabbage. I prefer a Burgundy or a Chianti with the lamb or goat. Why?

Russia could increase Ukraine attacks, says Zelensky

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky says Russia could increase its attacks in Ukraine's north east following its recent gains near the city of Kharkiv.

Russian troops have been trying to push forward as Ukraine’s outgunned forces attempt to shore up a weakened front line.

Mr Zelensky admitted that there were issues with military staffing and morale, saying a number of existing brigades were empty.

He also told the AFP news agency the country's air fleet was lacking and renewed calls for allies to send more air defence and fighter jets.

"Today we have about 25% of what we need to defend Ukraine," Mr Zelensky said of Ukraine's air capabilities.

"So that Russia does not have air superiority, our fleet should have 120 to 130 modern aircraft."

The US recently approved a new $61bn (£48bn) aid package for Ukraine, which includes military support.

Russian forces recently began a summer offensive, grabbing a number of villages on Ukraine's north-eastern frontier near Kharkiv - the country's second largest city.

Kharkiv's regional governor Oleg Synegubov said on Saturday that nearly 10,000 people have been forced to leave in just over a week.

"The situation is controlled by defenders of Ukraine," he added.

Polish Prime Minster Donald Tusk, meanwhile, has announced the country will spend over €2.3bn (£1.9bn) to fortify its eastern border against "potential enemies".

The border includes Russia, Belarus and Ukraine.

Mr Zelensky also told AFP more soldiers were desperately needed at the frontlines.

"There are a serious number of brigades, existing brigades, which, a large number of them, are empty. We need to do this so that the guys have a normal rotation. Then their morale will be improved."

A new mobilisation law aimed at addressing this came into force on Saturday.

Under the new rules, the age that people can be conscripted into the war has been lowered from 27 to 25 in an effort to boost recruit numbers.

The flood of volunteers Ukraine saw following Russia's full-scale invasion in February 2022 has now dried up. Most of those who wanted to fight are either dead, injured or still stuck at the front waiting to be relieved by new recruits.

In February, Mr Zelensky announced that 31,000 Ukrainian soldiers had been killed during Russia's full-scale invasion.

Typically, Ukrainian officials do not make casualty figures public, and other estimates are much higher.

BBC Russian, in a joint project with the Mediazona website, has established the deaths of more than 50,000 Russian soldiers. But it estimates the total number to be greater than that.

That is one possible outcome, not the most probable though.

I don't think Vovchansk has changed hands yet Gopnik, you're a bit over your skis on this.

Petr Pavel, Czech President is now calling for peace talks, compromise and an end to the war. He knows something.

Re: The war in Ukraine
The Kremlin has been on the offensive all year but talk of major advances lacks detail. The main new theatre where Ukrainian forces have retreated is north of Kharkov with the town of Vovchansk changing hands as it is reduced to rubble. On the other hand, there can be no serious talk of any major strategic breakthrough; Kharkov is well defended and it is estimated a force of up to 200,000 strong would be needed to take and hold the city.

Putin doesn't have much to be emboldened by. Throwing away his country's future on a pointless war of conquest. Becoming economically and militarily dependent on others.
The reputation of his country in tatters . Just a matter of time before he gets a bullet behind the ear.

Re: The war in Ukraine
US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is wrapping up his trip to Kyiv, where he reaffirmed the Biden administration's support for Ukraine amid Russia's advances in the Kharkiv region. Blinken announced $2 billion in military financing for Ukraine and said much-needed ammunition and weapons are being rushed to the front lines.
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will cancel all his upcoming international visits, his office announced Wednesday, as the beleaguered country grapples with a new Russian offensive.
Russia is pushing into northeastern Ukraine after making major advances there over the past week – marking Moscow’s most significant gains since Ukrainian forces recaptured the Kharkiv region in 2022. More than 7,500 people have been evacuated from the region.
Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet Chinese leader Xi Jinping this week. Putin will arrive in China emboldened by the survival of his wartime economy and Russia's advances in Ukraine.

Prepared in what way? Have they prepared their cemeteries for a new influx of corpses? The ones that they bother collecting from the battlefield that is.
Russia have shown that they are in no way prepared for a war against the west in a non nuclear conflict.
