Russian forces fire on civilian vehicles in latest attack on humanity



Russian forces have oppened fire on innocent Ukrainians trying to escape the war torn country

Russian forces have fired on civilian vehicles in three separate attacks in Ukraine’s Kyiv and Chernihiv regions.

The incidents, killing six civilians and wounding three, have been condemned by Human Rights Watch.

According to HRW, in one particular case, Kremlin troops reportedly pulled a man from a van and summarily executed him.

“Russian soldiers at checkpoints opened fire on passing vehicles without any apparent effort to verify whether the occupants were civilians,”

said Belkis Wille, senior crisis and conflict researcher at Human Rights Watch.

In a statement Human Rights Watch says they interviewed nine witnesses who were each present during one of the three incidents, including two who were wounded in these attacks.

Researchers visited the sites of the three incidents and examined the four cars that were fired upon. Witnesses say that there were no Ukrainian forces in the vicinity at the time.

Attacks on Ukraine by Russia continue

“The obligation to distinguish between civilians and combatants is a constant as is the prohibition on targeting civilians, whether in their homes, on the streets, or in their cars.”

HRW says a large number of civilian vehicles currently disabled on roads in the Kyiv and Chernihiv regions have been left with bullet holes, burn marks, and other signs of destruction.

It suggests that Russian forces have also harmed other civilians in similar unlawful attacks.

Russian forces should respect civilians trying to flee hostilities and facilitate the delivery of impartial humanitarian aid for civilians through territory under their control.

“On February 28, HRW says Russian forces opened fire on two vehicles carrying nine civilians who were trying to flee the area. On March 3, they shot at a vehicle with four men who were going to negotiate delivery of humanitarian aid. The third incident took place in the village of Nova Basan, in Chernihiv region, 70 kilometers east of central Kyiv, when Russian forces shot at a civilian van carrying two men, injuring one of them. Soldiers pulled the second man from the van and summarily executed him, while the injured man escaped.” Human Rights Watch said in a statement to Ticker News.

Dead bodies lie on Irpin Streets on March 6, 2022 in Irpin, Ukraine.

Under international humanitarian law, or the laws of war, civilians may never be the deliberate target of attacks

Parties to an armed conflict must take all feasible precautions to minimise harm to civilians and civilian objects, and not carry out attacks that fail to discriminate between combatants and civilians.

Under law, anyone who orders or deliberately commits such acts, or aids and abets them, is responsible for war crimes. Commanders of forces who knew or had reason to know about such crimes but did not attempt to stop them or punish those responsible are criminally liable for war crimes as a matter of command responsibility.

Russia should conduct impartial, thorough, and transparent investigations into these killings and should compensate victims of any unlawful attacks.

Why Australia is becoming the new home of the Hollywood blockbuster



Australia’s multimillion-dollar campaign to attract Hollywood productions to its shores appears to be paying off.

The allure of Australia lies not only in its picturesque locations but also in its competitive financial incentives.

The government offers generous rebates and tax breaks to international productions, making it an attractive proposition for filmmakers looking to maximise their budgets.

Despite the recent intake of Hollywood productions down under such as ‘The Fall Guy’ and ‘Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’, Aussie independents are still finding the space to carve their own creative path.

Rob Fantozzi joined the program to discuss the latest in Hollywood, and showcased his own upcoming project – ‘Omerta‘. #featured

U.S. home prices surge 47%



American home prices are rising at faster pace now than in the last 20-years.

A recent analysis reveals a jaw dropping surge in the cost of American homes.

Since the start of 2020, U.S. home prices have surged 47% easily outstripping the gains seen in recent decades.

On top of that, home price growth so far this decade is on the verge of surpassing all the growth seen in the 2000s.

Many experts believe this decade’s housing market frenzy was ignited by a perfect storm — the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic triggering an unprecedented rush among buyers.
