Kyiv defiant as Russian bombs rain down on cities

Published

on

Missile strikes right across the war-torn nation are a clear escalation in the conflict. 14 people were killed and dozens more injured as weapons of mass destruction rained down on Ukraine’s major cities

It is the first time the nation’s capital, Kyiv has been targeted in months.

Several regions were left without power or water after the strikes as emergency services work around the clock to survey the damage and provide assistance.

But Ukrainian front-line troops say the morale remains high.

Putin’s revenge

Russian President Vladimir Putin says these recent attacks are a direct response to what he labels a ‘terrorist attack’ on the key bridge connecting Russia with annexed-Crimea.

In neighbouring Belarus, the country’s leader Alexander Lukashenko has mobilised his troops near Ukraine and ordered them to fight with Russian forces.

Lukashenko is claiming his nation is next in the firing line, stating Ukraine and NATO are standing by to launch an attack on his country.

He has offered no evidence to substantiate these claims.

“Profound moral issues”

In the United States, Secretary of State Antony Blinken has issued a statement on the missile strikes.

He says the attacks serve as a reminder that Russia’s war “presents a profound moral issue”.

He continues, adding, “no person of conscience – and no country of principle – could be unmoved by the devastation of these horrors”.

The U.S. has confirmed it will continue to provide all kinds of assistance “so Ukraine can defend itself and take care of its people”.

European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen says these recent attacks are a clear demonstration of Moscow’s motives.

TikTok implements stricter guidelines on weight-loss drug promotion

Published

on

TikTok is tightening its regulations on influencers who promote weight-loss drugs like Ozempic.

With over 170 million users in the US, the app aims to prevent the spread of potentially harmful content related to rapid weight loss.

Starting in May, TikTok will prohibit influencers from posting “before-and-after” photos and restrict minors from accessing weight-loss content deemed risky. The crackdown extends to any content promoting drastic weight loss methods, aiming to combat the promotion of unrealistic body standards.

However, some influencers, like Dave Knapp and Kim Carlos, criticise the move, arguing it discriminates against those with health conditions. Others fear losing their income as TikTok takes down their content, prompting concerns about the platform’s future amid potential US bans.

As TikTok enforces stricter guidelines, influencers may seek alternative platforms to share weight-loss content. Despite the popularity of drugs like Ozempic and Wegovy, the crackdown reflects growing concerns about the impact of such promotions on user health.
