‘Putin can not remain in power’ – White House backtracks from Biden’s words



Ukraine’s chief of defence warns Russia wants to split his nation in two, just like North and South Korea, as fighting continues.

The military head has promised “total” guerrilla warfare to prevent such an outcome, as Ukrainian President Zelensky urges the West to provide further warfare equipment.

Zelensky is seeking further tanks, planes and missiles all in a bid to defend against Russian aggression.

In Poland, during his visit, US President Joe Biden told the world Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power” as the White House urgently tries to clarify the remarks.

Senior White Officials say the president was referring to the fact that Putin cannot be allowed to exercise power over “the region”.

The official says Biden is not calling for a new regime in Russia… as the Kremlin notes it’s the Russian public who select their leader, not the United States.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken added the president simply meant Putin cannot be “empowered to wage war” against Ukraine or anywhere else.

It comes as Biden also labels Putin as a “butcher” after more than four weeks of bloody conflict.

Biden says this war is about far more than a firefight, it’s about central principles that have always been under siege.

Biden says it is the darkest moments that lead to the greatest progress.

Here’s a re-cap of what you need to know:

  • As Putin’s war enters weeks four, Russian forces have failed to seize any major cities as they shift their focus to Donbass region.
  • Ukraine and Russia will meet for the next round of negotiations from Monday in Turkey.
  • Ukraine’s top military official warns Moscow is attempting to create a “North and South Korea”.
  • The White House is attempting to clear up comments made by Joe Biden, whereby the President said Vladimir Putin “cannot remain in power”.

COP28: Global effort to phase out fossil fuels



World leaders at COP28 have intensified their commitment to combat climate change by embarking on a bold initiative to phase out fossil fuels.

The United Nations climate talks, held in a virtual format due to ongoing pandemic concerns, saw representatives from nearly 200 countries coming together to address the urgent need for action on the climate crisis.

The decision to focus on ending fossil fuel use marks a significant departure from previous climate negotiations.

Countries have traditionally grappled with setting emissions reduction targets, but this year’s conference places a strong emphasis on the need to transition away from the reliance on coal, oil, and natural gas. Experts argue that this shift is critical to limiting global temperature rise and avoiding the most catastrophic effects of climate change.

Key highlights of the COP28 agreement include setting ambitious deadlines for phasing out fossil fuel subsidies, promoting renewable energy sources, and encouraging the development of green technologies.

The conference also established a fund to support developing nations in their transition away from fossil fuels, recognizing that these countries often face the greatest challenges in achieving sustainability.

Russian authorities conducted raids on several gay clubs in Moscow, according to reports from various media outlets.

The raids have sent shockwaves through the LGBTQ+ community and have raised concerns about the ongoing crackdown on LGBTQ+ rights in Russia.

Eyewitnesses and clubgoers describe a heavy police presence during the raids, with officers reportedly detaining patrons and staff members.

The reasons behind these raids remain unclear, but they have ignited a fierce debate on social media and within human rights organizations.

International LGBTQ+ rights advocates are calling on the Russian government to address these actions and protect the rights and safety of LGBTQ+ individuals in the country.

The raids have also drawn attention to Russia’s controversial “gay propaganda” law, which has been criticized for its potential to fuel discrimination and violence against LGBTQ+ people.

UK delays Jeff Zucker’s Telegraph deal for inquiry



The UK government has decided to put a hold on the proposed acquisition of The Telegraph newspaper by media mogul Jeff Zucker’s conglomerate.

According to a recent report, this decision has been made in order to conduct further investigations into potential regulatory concerns surrounding the deal.

The move comes amidst growing concerns over media consolidation and its impact on media diversity and competition.

The government aims to ensure that the acquisition would not result in a concentration of media power that could potentially stifle independent journalism and diverse voices in the industry.

This decision has sparked debates about the balance between media ownership and the preservation of media plurality in the UK. Supporters of the deal argue that it could lead to much-needed investments in The Telegraph, while critics worry about the potential for Zucker’s conglomerate to wield too much influence over the media landscape.
