Azovstal evacuations – Fighters arrive in Russian-controlled territory

Published

on

The buses carrying the Ukrainian soldiers who had been defending the Azovstal steelworks in Mariupol have begun arriving in Russian-controlled territory

A convoy of at least seven buses has been seen leaving the besieged city, arriving at a former penal colony near Donetsk.

Neither Russian nor Ukrainian officials have confirmed the arrivals, but a news agency in Russia says its nation’s Investigative Committee plans to question the soldiers.

Moscow says it will be investigating “Ukrainian regime crimes”.

But now the soldiers have been evacuated, what happens from here?

The exact details of any deal made between Russia and Ukraine remain under wraps, but Kyiv has previously indicated its forces will be exchanged for Russian prisoners-of-war.

Moscow is yet to confirm this publicly, with the Kremlin avoiding questions on the prisoners’ status or possible transfer.

Ukrainian officials will be likely holding their breath, with individuals including a senior Russian MP accusing the Ukrainian soldiers of being “Nazis and war criminals”.

The MP has requested their exchange be banned all together, as Russia’s Supreme Court will decide whether to uphold a request to designate the group many of the fighters belong to as a terrorist organisation.

But, despite all of this, Ukraine says it was left with just one option – to save lives.

Democrats scramble to rally behind Harris as Trump allies launch next phase of campaign

Biden Withdraws: President Joe Biden Ends Reelection Bid, Endorses Kamala Harris.

 

After weeks of battling to salvage his political career – claiming he wouldn’t be stepping down after a disastrous debate performance – the president’s sudden change of course was not announced through an Oval Office address or a campaign speech. Instead, it was revealed in a letter posted to social media while he was recovering from Covid-19 at his beach house in Delaware.

“And while it has been my intention to seek reelection, I believe it is in the best interest of my party and the country for me to stand down and to focus solely on fulfilling my duties as President for the remainder of my term,” Biden wrote in a letter posted to X.

Harris expressed her gratitude for Biden’s endorsement, stating she is “honoured” and committed to “earning and winning” the nomination. Should she secure the nomination, Harris would make history as the first Black woman and first Asian American to lead the ticket of a major political party. To facilitate her candidacy, the Biden-Harris campaign has updated its filings with the Federal Election Commission, renaming its principal committee to reflect Harris’s new status as a presidential candidate.

Despite Biden’s support, the path forward remains uncertain. It is unclear whether Harris will automatically become the nominee or what alternative processes the Democratic Party might consider. Additionally, sources suggest that Senator Joe Manchin, an independent from West Virginia, is contemplating re-registering as a Democrat to enter the presidential race.

In response to Biden’s withdrawal, former President Donald Trump criticised Biden as “the worst president by far in the history of our country” during a call with CNN. Trump has also launched a fundraising appeal to rally his supporters.

Published

Donald Trump has said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to beat than Joe Biden.

With Biden out, Trump’s campaign will now adjust its strategy, focusing on attacking Harris and any other possible Democratic candidates. They aim to convince voters that Harris would be just as ineffective as Biden.

Biden faced growing doubts about his ability to win re-election, especially after a weak debate performance against Trump. Some Democrats also lost confidence in his leadership, leading him to step down.

Donald Trump said he thinks Kamala Harris will be easier to defeat than Biden. Trump and his team quickly began attacking both Biden and Harris online, claiming that Biden was not fit to be president and that Harris would be just as bad.

Allies of former President Donald Trump quickly launched their campaign against Vice President Kamala Harris on Sunday afternoon, preparing a series of anti-Harris ads and planning their strategies for attacking her.

“I call her laughing Kamala,” Trump told the crowd, during his nearly two-hour appearance. “You can tell a lot by a laugh. She’s crazy. She’s nuts.”
