President Biden has called on Vladimir Putin to end the war

On the global stage, U.S. President Joe Biden and Russian President Vladimir Putin faced off in dueling speeches.

President Biden delivered a message of unwavering support for Ukraine during his address that marked the one-year anniversary of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

However, in his highly anticipated speech on Tuesday, the Commander-in-Chief did not warn China to stay out of the Ukraine War nor did he mention the news that Russia is planning to officially withdraw from a key nuclear arms control treaty with the U.S.

On the ground in Poland, the President said, “our support for Ukraine will not waiver, NATO will not be divided, and we will not tire.”

“I speak once more to the people of Russia—the United States and the nations of Europe do not seek to control or destroy Russia,” Biden said.

“The West was not plotting to attack Russia as Putin said today,” he added.

According to media outlets, Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinpingwill meet in the coming months.

This comes as concerns in Eastern Europe are mounting that China could soon begin to bankroll Russian invasion effort.

Meanwhile, President Putin said in his speech that he is not the aggressor, “I want to repeat it’s they who have started the war, we have used and are using force to stop it.”

Additionally, Putin announced that Russia is suspending participation in New START, which is the only remaining major nuclear arms control treaty with the U.S. and threatened to resume testing nuclear weapons.

Many are asking what exactly America’s role in Ukraine should be? The U.S. has already supported Ukraine with tens of billions of dollars in financial aid and military equipment.

A helicopter carrying Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi and his foreign minister crashed on Sunday as it was crossing mountain terrain in heavy fog.

The official said the lives of Raisi and Foreign Minister Hossein Amirabdollahian were “at risk following the helicopter crash”, which happened on the way back from a visit to the border with Azerbaijan in Iran’s northwest.

“We are still hopeful but information coming from the crash site is very concerning,” the official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

State TV quoted an official as saying at least one passenger and one crew member had been in contact with rescuers. It also said the helicopter had been found, though Iran’s Red Crescent denied this report.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, who holds ultimate power with a final say on foreign policy and Iran’s nuclear programme, sought to reassure Iranians, saying there would be no disruption to state affairs. #iran #trending

Published

on

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

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
