Putin announcement delayed – reports Kremlin in chaos



Russian president, Vladimir Putin was expected to address the nation, but didn’t. Now there are reports the Kremlin is in chaos

Russian President Vladimir Putin has failed to deliver a nationally televised speech, a speech which would have been his first since the invasion of Ukraine began.

The address was expected to focus on the war. State media was reporting Putin was due to make an announcement at 8 pm Moscow time, but these tweets have now been deleted.

Pro-Kremlin news outlets have now told their readers to ‘go to bed‘ and there are now reports the address has been rescheduled to 8AM Moscow time.

Analysts are suggesting the speech may serve to announce a partial mobilisation in Russia.

The White House was expecting the announcement of a “general mobilisation” of the Russian military in a possible pretext for full-scale war.

“We saw it announced that it was going to be at 8 o’clock Moscow time. We’ve just seen a tweet from RT to say it’s not going to be on at 8 o’clock Moscow time – and anyway that has now passed,” retired senior British Army officer General sir Richard Shirreff told Sky News.

It comes as the Russian leader faces growing scrutiny within his on nation, as Ukrainian forces continue to push Russian troops out of occupied territory and back towards the border.

Turkey speaks up

Meanwhile, Turkey’s President says Putin may be seeking an end to the war, and that a “significant step” will be made in the coming days.

The Turkish leader says things are “quite problematic” for Russia at the moment, and he has gained the impression Moscow wants a speedy end to the war.

Ukraine vote

It comes as four areas of Ukraine under Moscow’s control have announced plans for urgent so-called referendums on joining Russia.

Russia’s invasion has stalled in recent months and Ukraine has recaptured swathes of territory once claimed by Moscow.

Now Russian-backed officials in the east and south say they want votes on joining Russia starting this week.

Western leaders have slammed plans for what they are calling “sham votes” in four areas of Ukraine held under Moscow’s rule.

The regions have announced their intentions to hold a referendum to vote on whether or not they should join Russia, paving the way for annexation.

As we’ve been reporting, Russia’s invasion has stalled in recent weeks, and Ukraine has recaptured a number of key areas.

But now Russian-backed officials in the east and south say they want votes on joining the nation starting this week.

Ukraine’s Foreign Minister says the “sham ‘referendums will not change anything”.

Annexing further Ukrainian territory will enable the Kremlin to claim Russia itself was being attacked by NATO weapons.

The White House warns Putin may be preparing to announce mobilisation measures.

Australia’s power network is facing a terrible summer



A new report has raised concerns about potential power shortages this summer in several Australian states. With temperatures expected to soar, experts warn that the electricity grid could be under significant strain.

The report, released by the Energy Authority of Australia, highlights that New South Wales, Queensland, and South Australia are at the greatest risk of experiencing blackouts. Increased demand for electricity due to air conditioning use during hot summer days is the primary driver of this concern.

The report suggests that immediate measures should be taken to mitigate these risks. These measures include improving grid infrastructure, investing in renewable energy sources, and implementing demand-side management programs to reduce peak electricity consumption.

Energy Minister Sarah Thompson acknowledged the challenges but assured the public that the government is actively working on solutions to prevent power shortages. She stated, “We are committed to ensuring a stable and reliable power supply during the summer months.”

As the summer approaches, Australians will be closely monitoring the situation, hoping that the necessary steps will be taken to ensure a steady power supply during the hottest days. #featured

USA alert test triggers memory of Hawaii missile alert



Enhancing National Preparedness: The Nationwide Emergency Alert System Test

On October 4, the United States is set to conduct a crucial nationwide emergency alert system test, a vital evaluation of the nation’s ability to disseminate critical information effectively during emergencies.

This upcoming test is a significant event, not just as a routine check but also in response to notable past incidents that underscore the imperative of a robust emergency alert system. One such incident took place on January 13, 2018, in the state of Hawaii, when an accidental alert was issued via the Emergency Alert System and Wireless Emergency Alert System.

This alert, transmitted across various media platforms including television, radio, and cellphones, advised citizens to seek shelter due to an incoming ballistic missile, concluding with the chilling declaration: “This is not a drill.”

The subsequent 38 minutes and 13 seconds were filled with panic and uncertainty, until state officials clarified that the alert had resulted from a miscommunication during a routine drill at the Hawaii Emergency Management Agency. The incident prompted a public apology from David Ige, the governor of Hawaii, acknowledging the distress it had caused.

Additionally, it triggered investigations by the Federal Communications Commission and the Hawaii House of Representatives, ultimately leading to the resignation of the state’s emergency management administrator. This incident served as a stark reminder of the critical importance of a well-functioning, error-free emergency alert system.

Fast forward to the present, the nation is preparing for the upcoming nationwide emergency alert system test scheduled for October 4. At the designated time, a loud alert tone will resonate across all devices, followed by a test message that clearly identifies its nature as a simulation meant to evaluate the readiness and functionality of the emergency alert infrastructure. This exercise aims to assure citizens that the emergency alert system is well-prepared and efficient in conveying vital information during a crisis.

Citizens are strongly encouraged to pay close attention to this test, acquaint themselves with the alert sound and message, and comprehend its profound significance in the broader context of preparedness for potential emergencies in the future. The October 4 nationwide emergency alert system test represents a commitment to learning from past incidents and continuously improving preparedness measures to protect citizens and ensure a resilient society. It highlights the nation’s dedication to enhancing its communication systems, thereby reinforcing the safety and security of its populace.
