Russian military facility targeted by gunman



Russian military facility targeted by gunman as Moscow continues to target Ukraine’s civilian infrastructure

A Russian military facility training facility has been targeted by gunman, leaving 11 people dead.

15 others have been wounded.

It’s believed the attackers were from a former Soviet republic and were also shot dead during the altercation.

The targeted group had volunteered to fight in the war and were at a training camp in Russia’s Belgorod region, an area bordering Ukraine.

Rape accusations

This comes as a UN envoy accuses Russia of using rape as a military strategy.

The envoy confirmed rape is is being used as a a “deliberate tactic to dehumanise the victims.”

“When women are held for days and raped, when you start to rape little boys and men, when you see a series of genital mutilations, when you hear women testify about Russian soldiers equipped with Viagra – it’s clearly a military strategy,” the envoy said.

The United Nations has now verified more than a hundred cases of rape or sexual violence in Ukraine since the war began.

The victims are mostly women and girls, but also men and boys.

Civilian infrastructure targeted

Russia’s military is continuing to target civilian infrastructure.

As Zaporizhzhia is pounded, an energy facility near Ukraine’s capital of Kyiv was also hit.

Kyiv says Russia has been increasingly deploying so-called “kamikaze drones” in its attacks.

Meanwhile, Moscow has ramped up its evacuations from the Kherson region where Ukrainian counteroffensive has reportedly intensified.

In the U.S., speaking to Face the Nation on CBS, Ukraine’s ambassador to America stressed the importance of nuclear deterrence.

This is in response to comments from French President Macron who stated he would not commit to making a strike in retaliation if Russia used nuclear force.

“We in Ukraine will resist and we will not give up regardless of what Russian Federation uses against us,” the ambassador said. “We have, I think, proven it. From rockets, to atrocities, to anything that they try to do in Ukraine, it doesn’t break our will. There is no point for Russian Federation using anything else. It will not stop us in defending our homes.”

What Australia can learn from NZ’s supermarket inquiry



Coles and Woolworths, two of Australia’s largest supermarket chains, are about to face a Senate inquiry that aims to scrutinise their market dominance and business practices.

The inquiry’s parallels with a past New Zealand investigation highlight the growing concern over the duopoly’s impact on consumers and smaller businesses.

The Senate inquiry, set to begin next month, comes as a response to mounting public pressure and allegations of anti-competitive behavior in the grocery sector.

New Zealand example

Similar concerns led New Zealand to conduct its own inquiry into the supermarket industry back in 2019, resulting in recommendations for increased regulation and transparency.

The central question here is whether Coles and Woolworths wield too much power in the Australian market, potentially stifling competition and limiting choices for consumers.

With the New Zealand example as a cautionary tale, many are wondering if this inquiry will result in meaningful changes to the Australian grocery landscape.

Elon Musk: Nikki Haley’s ‘campaign is dead’



Elon Musk has thrown a verbal jab at former South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley, declaring her political campaign as “dead” on X.

The unexpected comment from the Tesla and SpaceX CEO has ignited a new wave of discussion within the political sphere, leaving many wondering about the implications for Haley’s political future.

In a tweet that garnered significant attention, Musk criticized Haley’s recent policy stance, writing, “Nikki Haley’s campaign is dead on arrival if she continues to ignore the urgency of climate change.

We need leaders who prioritize the planet’s future.” The tech mogul’s remarks come as Haley, a prominent Republican figure, has been exploring the possibility of running for president in the upcoming election cycle.

Musk’s statement has reignited the debate over climate change within the Republican Party, with many conservatives emphasizing economic interests over environmental concerns.

This raises questions about whether Musk’s endorsement or critique could influence the GOP’s stance on climate issues and potentially impact the 2024 presidential race.
