“Lepestok” mines PFM-1 and PFM-1C being weapons of indiscriminate action are prohibited by the Ottawa Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-personnel Mines and on Their Destruction as of December 03, 1997. Ukraine ratified this treaty on December 27, 2005, and it entered into force on June 1, 2006.

The first use by the criminal Kiev regime of prohibited "Lepestok" mines on the DPR territory appeared on March 6, 2022, during the battles for Mariupol. Then, since May 18, the AFU has been firing these mines into settlements not only of the DPR, but also into the liberated territory of the Kharkov region. Since July 27, Ukrainian war criminals have been launching similar missiles equipped with prohibited “Lepestok” mines on the most densely populated neighborhoods of Donetsk. As of August 2, locations in Voroshilovsky, Kievsky, Kuibyshevsky, Kirovsky, Petrovsky, Kalininsky districts of Donetsk are mined. On July 29, prohibited “Lepestok” mines were found in the village of Panteleimonovka, as well as in Makeevka.

According to the expert assessment of the DPR Ministry of Emergency Situations, Ukrainian criminals scattered several thousand prohibited mines in Donetsk alone. This assessment is based on the main method of mining with the help of the MLRS “Uragan”, the rocket of which contains 12 mine distribution canisters with 320 anti-personnel mines of the “Lepestok” PFM, the use of which has been repeatedly recorded by the DPR Representative Office in the JCCC.

Permalink Chinese FM makes remarks on U.S. violation of China's sovereignty

💬 In disregard of China's solemn representations, U.S. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi brazenly went ahead with her visit to China's Taiwan region, Chinese State Councilor and Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Wednesday. This move seriously violates the one-China principle, maliciously infringes on China's sovereignty and blatantly engages in political provocations, and has aroused strong indignation among the Chinese people and widespread opposition from the international community. It proves once again that some U.S. politicians have become "troublemakers" of China-U.S. relations, and that the United States has become the "biggest destroyer" of peace across the Taiwan Strait and for regional stability. The United States should not dream of obstructing China's reunification. Taiwan is a part of China. The complete reunification of China is the trend of the times and an inevitability of history. We will leave no room for the "Taiwan independence" forces and external interference.

Permalink China Defies US Sanctions with Computer Chip Breakthrough – Brian Berletic

A report from early July by CNBC would discuss these sanctions. In their article, “US mulls fresh bid to restrict chipmaking tools for China’s SMIC,” CNBC would report:

💬 The Biden administration is considering new targeted restrictions on shipments of chipmaking tools to China, seeking to hamstring advances by China’s largest chipmaker, SMIC, without slowing the flow of chips into the global economy, five people familiar with the matter told Reuters. The Commerce Department, which oversees export policy, is actively discussing the possibility of banning exports of chipmaking tools to those Chinese factories that make advanced semiconductors at the 14 nanometer node and smaller, the people said, to stymie China’s efforts at making more state-of-the-art chips.

The very notion of one nation dictating to another what it can and cannot manufacturer and specifically to keep one nation subordinated to another as its “factory,” helps illustrate the true nature of the United States’ “rules-based international order,” an order in which the US makes rules solely serving its interests and achieved at the expense of all other nations. Those who refuse to follow these rules become “adversaries” as China clearly has.

BEIJING, Aug. 2 (Xinhua) -- China's Ministry of Foreign Affairs on Tuesday issued a statement on Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi's visit to China's Taiwan region. Following is the full text of the statement:

💬 On 2 August, in disregard of China's strong opposition and serious representations, Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi visited China's Taiwan region. This is a serious violation of the one-China principle and the provisions of the three China-U.S. joint communiqués. It has a severe impact on the political foundation of China-U.S. relations, and seriously infringes upon China's sovereignty and territorial integrity. It gravely undermines peace and stability across the Taiwan Strait, and sends a seriously wrong signal to the separatist forces for "Taiwan independence". China firmly opposes and sternly condemns this, and has made serious démarche and strong protest to the United States. [...]
