Govts & digital platforms...are trying to limit access to information online. It seems that their goal is to support a single narrative of the facts." #Ukraine
"Ukrainian soldiers and militias have extensively used civilians as human shields. The testimonies I have collected are dozens and the vast majority confirm it. There is no trace of this fact checking work in the mainstream press." #Ukraine
"I am an independent reporter. My work has been recognized internationally. But I cannot work in #Ukraine because I am on a blacklist, #Myrotvorets, in which I am defined as a “criminal” – just for doing my job and for sharing my point of view...documented by 8years in the field"

The #US is twisting arms all around among its allies to make them ban Russian oil imports. But, as #Japan's economy minister said, each country is in a different situation when it comes to energy consumption (meaning industry and manufacturing).
The US is inviting its allies to commit economic suicide. Some, like the EU, led by Ursula von der Leyen, a former gynecologist, are willingly taking the option without much thought.
