Putin declares martial law



Putin declares martial law in four key Ukrainian regions during a televised address

During a televised address, Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has declared martial law in four Ukrainian regions. Regions he claims to have annexed.

The areas include Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Donestsk and Luhansk.

Martial law will see the imposition of direct military control, overthrowing civil law by any government.

“We are working on solving very complex, large-scale tasks to ensure a reliable future for Russia, the future of our people,” the Russian president said.

The law has been published on the Kremlin’s website. It gives emergency powers to the Russian-installed heads of the four annexed regions of Ukraine.

In a further six provinces on the border of Ukraine, Putin is also granting additional authority to leaders. This will ensure they can maintain public order and increase support of Moscow’s war.

The freedom to move in and out of the regions has also been limited.

This all follows reports of Ukrainian forces making advances in these areas, suggesting Putin may be clutching at straws.

Ukraine’s Foreign Ministry has slammed the Putin’s announcement, saying the orders are a “new state of terror” and Ukraine will do everything in its power to rescue the people.

In the U.S., President Joe Biden says Putin’s martial law decree is an act of desperation.

“I think Vladimir Putin finds himself in an incredibly difficult position and what it reflects to me is it seems his only tool available to him is to brutalize individual citizens in Ukraine to try to intimidate them into capitulating,” Biden said.

Putin has labelled Ukraine as a terrorist country and blamed it for the Crimea bridge explosion.

Ukraine prepares for a summer of violence



Is support for the war waning after the conflict has surpassed 1-year and millions of dollars?

After a Russian air assault on Kyiv in which one civilian was killed, residential buildings in wealthy districts of Moscow were hit by multiple drone strikes injuring two people.

The Kremlin is claiming that most of the drone strikes which happened during broad daylight—were intercepted.

A Russian politician said the attack on the capital was the most dangerous since World War II.

Russia says Ukraine launched the attack and has vowed to bolster their air defenses.

Meanwhile, Ukraine is denying direct involvement, having just recently suffered three air attacks within a 24-hour time span.

Last month, leaked Department of Defense documents revealed possible weak links in Ukraine’s military campaign against Russian forces.

Russian President Vladimir Putin invaded Ukraine with tens of thousands of troops more than a year ago and there appears to be no end in sight.

“I think there is a great risk”: will AI steal our jobs?



Artificial Intelligence has become an increasingly powerful and pervasive force in our modern world.

Artificial intelligence is not a new concept. However, the growing advancements have the potential to revolutionise industries, improve efficiency, and enhance the quality of life.

Along with its promising advancements, artificial intelligence also brings certain risks and challenges that must be acknowledged and addressed.

It has become the focus of lawmakers, who are working towards greater regulation of the sector.

U.S. and European Union officials recently met in Sweden to weigh up the benefits and challenges of artificial intelligence, and other emerging technologies.

“The AI process is creeping up on us,” said Dr Keith Suter, who is a global futurist.

“You’ve got competition between companies.”

It’s almost like some of us can see this raft that’s heading towards the rapids and a disappearance towards the waterfall, and we’re giving a warning but it’s not being heeded because everybody’s in this race to get down to the river,” Dr Suter said.
