Putin sends stark warning to the United States

Russia’s Vladimir Putin has sent a stark warning to the United States, amid the ongoing war in Ukraine

On Russian state media, the leader says Moscow will “strike new targets” if the US has sent long-range missiles to the war-torn nation.

Putin is referring to U.S. President Biden’s recent decision to supply Ukraine with more “advanced rocket systems and munitions”.

This has angered Putin with the Russian leader saying this delivery will “drag out the armed conflict for as long as possible”.

The Russian leader continued by saying “if they are supplied, we will draw appropriate conclusions from this and use our own weapons, in order to strike at those facilities we are not targeting yet”.

This comes after Russian forces continue to move in on eastern parts of Ukraine, in the Severodonetsk.

There are new reports that suggest the Russian General has been given until June 10 to capture key cities in the area.

In Kyiv, multiple explosions were recently reported, making it the first hit on the capital in weeks.

This comes as Ukrainian leader, Volodymyr Zelensky travels to the frontlines of the war to award soldiers for their bravery and service.

“I am proud of everyone I met, shook hands with, communicated with and supported. Something was brought for the military, but I will not detail it, and I brought something from them — to you. It is important: confidence and strength.”

Iran schoolgirls stand up to feared parliamentary force

Iran schoolgirls stand up to a feared parliamentary force, removing headscarves and shouting

Schoolgirls in Iran are continuing to take a stand against the country’s repressive regime, this time by heckling a member of the Basij.

The Basij is a feared paramilitary force and one of the five forces of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corp.

The girls waved their headscarves and shouted at the man who addressed them.

It comes as anti-government protests continue to sweep across Iran, largely sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini.

Amini died in custody and many believe this was a result of police brutality.

The young woman’s death shone a spotlight on the regime’s brutal treatment of dissenters.  Residents also say it also highlighted the government’s general disregard for human rights.

The nationwide unrest is over two weeks old and has quickly become the biggest challenge to Iran’s clerical leaders in years.

Riot police are spread out across the cities of Urmia, Tabriz, Rasht and Tehran.

The police are particularly prevalent around universities as these institutions have been a focal point of protests.

“There are lots of security forces around Tehran University. Lots of police vans are waiting outside to arrest students,” said a student speaking to Reuters.

Other videos and footage circulating on social media show Iranians taking to the streets. Here they are chanting slogans like “death to the dictator” in defiance of the nation’s leaders.

The Basij has been helping security forces crack down on the demonstrators, often using extreme force.

But the resilience of the protesters, including these schoolgirls, shows that the regime’s days may be numbered.

Vladimir Putin announces

Vladimir Putin announces changes to his mobilisation orders during a televised address

Vladimir Putin has appeared on state television to announce changes to his mobilisation orders.

The Russian leader has made “corrections” to the decree, meaning students at universities and postgraduates don’t have to fight in the war.

The Russian President has also signed a new law to claim the “annexed” regions of Ukraine are now officially a part of the nation.

He stopped short of defining where the borders of these so-called regions are though.

It follows, reports suggesting Russia’s military might on the frontline is dwindling, as wounded troops retreat from key areas.

Ukraine’s military is continuing to make territorial gains in the south and east, pushing into these areas Russia claims to have “annexed.”

Putin appeared to concede Russia would “stabilise” the situation in these areas.

“We are working on the assumption that the situation in the new territories will stabilise,” Putin said during a televised video call.

New images emerging online show Ukrainian troops in the Luhansk region.
