‘Radical reduction’ – Russia promises reduction of military around Kyiv

Published

on

The first round of peace talks between Russia and Ukraine in over two weeks have wrapped up as Moscow promises to scale back its assault on Kyiv

The steps discussed at the meeting was one of the first signs so far that progress is being made towards peace, but Western officials stress caution.

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken says there is a distinct difference between what Russia says it will do and what actually happens.

While in Britain, UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson says he will wait to see how Moscow moves forward before making any judgement.

Ukraine has also proposed adopting a neutral status during the talks, which took place in Turkey’s capital of Istanbul.

Russia’s deputy defence minister says the decision to reduce military activity in Kyiv was made “to increase mutual trust and create the necessary conditions for further negotiations” in the hope of signing a peace agreement.

Putin’s assault of Ukraine has been confronted by strong Ukrainian resistance, with Ukraine’s military recapturing territory… as many civilians remain trapped in besieged cities, like Mariupol.

This is vastly different to the scenes the world witnessed during Russia’s 2014 annexation of Crimea.

Donald Trump was whisked off the stage at a rally in Butler, Pennsylvania after loud noises rang through the crowd.

Trump was showing off a chart of border crossing numbers when bangs started ringing through the crowd. Trump could be seen reaching with his right hand toward his neck. There appeared to be blood on his face.

He quickly ducked behind the riser as agents from his protective detail rushed the stage and screams rang out from the crowd. The bangs continued as agents tended to him on stage.

His motorcade has left the venue.

In a statement, Trump says he is “fine” and says he is being checked at a medical facility.

Donald Trump was safe, the U.S. Secret Service and his campaign said on Saturday after multiple shots rang out at a rally by the Republican presidential candidate in Pennsylvania as video showed Trump grimacing and raising a hand to his right ear.
The former president had just started his speech when gunshots erupted and Trump and other rally attendees hit the deck. Secret Service agents swarmed around him and live video showed blood on the right side of Trump’s face and ear.
 
Trump repeatedly raised his fist in the air, with an American flag visible behind him, as security ushered him away.
“The Secret Service has implemented protective measures and the former president is safe,” a spokesperson for the agency said on X after what it called an incident.
“This is now an active Secret Service investigation and further information will be released when available.”

Published

on

With latest Australian Federal budget, many SMB’s are weighing their options when selecting a suitable business model.
