In eastern Ukraine, survivors of a deadly ambush recall their desperate escape

This article was originally published by Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty and is reprinted with permission. Tamara Halishnikova doesn’t remember how long the attack targeting her and other residents trying to escape the Russian-occupied village of Kurylivka lasted. All she remembers are the sounds that rang out as the column of vehicles made its way along a railway embankment that late-September morning. “There was an explosion, then automatic-weapons fire, then more explosions, then we went to the embankment, then gunfire, gunfire, gunfire,” she said, speaking at a press conference to RFE/RL at a hospital in Kharkiv less than two weeks later. Halishnikova and her daughter, Lyudmyla Potapova, were among seven survivors of a September 25 attack on the vehicles, which carried 31 people attempting to flee fighting in Russian-held territory in northeastern Ukraine. Among the dead were 13 children, a pregnant woman, and Halishnikova’s husband. The attack was first reported by Ukrainian authorities on September 30, five days after it occurred. While three survivors interviewed by RFE/RL could not identify the attackers, the assault on civilians falls into a pattern of Russian forces targeting civilian columns, as occurred in missile and artillery attacks near Zaporizhzhya on September 30 that killed 30 people, on April 8 in the Donetsk region city of Kramatorsk, and on March 6 in Irpin, outside Kyiv. The Ukrainian Security Service (SBU) has stated that the attackers were a Russian special forces group. The Prosecutor-General’s Office has said that it has opened a war crimes investigation into the matter. Survivors said the column of seven vehicles was being attacked with machine guns in an ambush. The village lies near the small city of Kupyansk, which fell to Russian forces on February 27, just three days into the invasion. The area was under Russian occupation for more than six months, until

The Rise Of The Global South & The Foundation Of A New Currency System

The Rise Of The Global South & The Foundation Of A New Currency System Authored by Chris Macintosh via InternationalMan.com, “The issue of creating an international reserve currency based on a basket of currencies of our countries is being worked out,” – Vladimir Putin said at the BRICS business forum. So there you have it. You may recall that Russia has been cut off from the SWIFT system. Now if you’re a consumer of Western legacy media, you’d likely not have heard a word on it, but the fact is that Russia was largely prepared for this and has already developed and is now using the SPFS the Russian equivalent of SWIFT, developed by the Central Bank of Russia since 2014. If you weren’t paying attention at the time, we were, and I can tell you that after the The West threatened to disconnect Russia from the SWIFT system was when they urgently began building SPFS. This is an alternative for international payments which, in their own words, will… “cut reliance on the Western financial system.” In the meantime, Russia is taking steps to strengthen the alliance between BRIC nations, including re-routing trade to China and India. “We are actively engaged in reorienting our trade flows and foreign economic contacts towards reliable international partners, primarily the BRICS countries,” Putin said in his opening video address to the participants of the virtual BRICS Summit. That this is hardly reported in the Western MSM is both hilarious and rather frightening. Perhaps the sheeple don’t deserve to know they’re on the Titanic and the only life boats are already spoken for by the 1%. In any event, underpinning this trade with the USD is problematic not only for Russia, but any country which may now (or in the future) disagree with the US.

Army releases climate change plan: ‘Immediate threat to national security’

The U.S. Army released its new plan to tackle climate change, which the service claims “poses an immediate and serious threat to U.S. national security and affects how and where the Army trains and operates.” The new “Army Climate Strategy” (ACS) Implementation Plan states that the Army must do more than just “adapt” to climate change because “dangerous levels of greenhouse gases (GHG) have already accumulated in the Earth’s atmosphere.” The service must instead work to mitigate the effects of climate change. The strategy highlights three main “lines of effort,” including installations, acquisition and logistics, and training. The Army will work toward making sure installations have “resilient energy and water supply, carbon free electricity, efficient and sustainable infrastructure, sustainable land management, and more. The Army also vowed to reduce fuel consumption and rely on advanced technology to help mitigate climate change during deployments. Additionally, the service will “train and educate the Army to operate in a climate-altered world.” “The ACS envisions the Total Army as ‘a resilient and sustainable land force able to operate in all domains with effective mitigation and adaption measures against the key effects of climate change, consistent with Army modernization efforts,’” the strategy’s implementation plan states. “The effects of climate change will be a feature of global conditions for the foreseeable future. As such, the Army must continually adjust the ACS-IP to reflect the best science and cutting edge technologies. In FY25, the Army will assess progress, revisit assumptions, update and refresh the way ahead,” it adds. The Army’s plan comes after John Kirby, coordinator for strategic communications at the National Security Council, said climate change can “force” military invention after once again calling it a “national security issue.” During a July press conference, Kirby said climate change is a “driver of actual missions” because it
