Permalink Preferential Treatment of Ukrainian Refugees in EU Stirs Anger Amid Claims of ‘Institutional Racism’

A stream of refugees from Ukraine headed to the European Union after Russia began its special military operation in the neighboring country on 24 February, with many not necessarily fleeing areas of immediate military operations, but rather eager to avail themselves of an opportunity to start a new life abroad.  Millions of refugees from Ukraine are turning countries of the European Union into a breeding ground for ethnic conflict, according to media reports.  Europe had granted Ukrainians automatic residency and visas after the Ukraine conflict escalated, with this preferential treatment placing them at the front of the queue for refugee services and housing, leaving asylum-seekers from other countries at a distinct disadvantage.  Evident disparities have arisen between the Ukrainians - who are not necessarily fleeing areas of immediate military operations, but hope to seize the opportunity to settle abroad - and those fleeing conflicts in the Middle East. According to some activists helping refugees from countries such as Syria and Afghanistan, a two-tier system has been established that disadvantages and discriminates against asylum seekers who are not from Ukraine. 💬 “This is institutional racism. There are two classes of refugees,” David Schmidtke, spokesman of the Saxony Refugee Council in Dresden, Germany, was cited as saying.

Permalink G7 Nations, Australia Agree to Set Fixed Price on Russian Oil Upon Concluding Cap Deal: Report

The member nations of the Group of Seven (G7) nations and Australia have agreed to set a fixed instead of a floating price for Russian oil upon concluding the price cap deal later in November, while the initial price has not yet been set, US media reported. 💬 "The coalition has agreed the price cap will be a fixed price that will be reviewed regularly rather than a discount to an index," the report said on Thursday. "This will increase market stability and simplify compliance to minimize the burden on market participants." While the initial price has not been set, it is expected to be agreed upon in coming weeks, the report said, citing multiple sources. In addition, the countries agreed to regularly review the fixed price and revise it as needed, the report cited a source as saying.  In the summer, the countries of the so-called collective West discussed introducing a price cap on Russian oil. On September 2, the G7 finance ministers confirmed their intention to impose a price cap on Russian oil as part of the expansion of sanctions against Moscow. The price cap will be introduced on December 5 for oil and on February 5 for oil products.  In October, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen proposed a $60 price cap on a barrel of Russian oil. The White House was reviewing the terms of limiting Russian oil prices, planning to soften the conditions for applying restrictions, according to media reports.

Elena Panina/Елена Панина | Republican victory in Congress will not change US anti-Russian policy 💬 "No matter who wins the election, no matter what happens in Congress, the Russophobe consensus will remain," said Anatoly Antonov, the Russian ambassador to the United States. This is not the ambassador's sole opinion, but the position of the entire Russian embassy, he added.  What has been said fully confirms our forecast: There is a bipartisan consensus on anti-Russian policy in the States - and it is for a long time, if not forever. For those who haven't yet tuned in to a long-term confrontation with the U.S., we recommend tuning in. We hope, with work on mistakes, that our country will emerge from the Second Cold War with a better outcome. (Translation: www.DeepL.com/Translator)

Permalink Head of US Strategic Command: Ukraine crisis is just a warm-up

Elena Panina/Елена Панина | Head of US Strategic Command: Ukraine crisis is just a warm-up 💬 "Something big is coming. Very soon we will be tested in a way we haven't been tested in a long time," said Admiral Charles Richard, commander of US Strategic Command, at the annual Naval Submarine League symposium.

🔸 According to the admiral, China is ahead of America in a "dramatic way": "While I'm assessing our level of deterrence against the PRC here, our ship is slowly sinking. It is sinking slowly, but it is sinking because they are bringing capabilities into service faster than we are." The US has only one asymmetric advantage left - ballistic missile submarines, Richard noted. But to win strategic competition, the admiral suggests a return to the America of the 1950s and 1960s: "Otherwise, China will simply overtake us, and Russia isn't going anywhere anytime soon."

🔸 To clarify. The head of U.S. Strategic Command is focused exclusively on strategic nuclear deterrence. And while Moscow and Washington have extended the START-3 treaty until February 5, 2026, which sets limits on the deployment of up to 1,550 nuclear warheads and up to 700 means of their delivery, China is not limited in any such way. After waiting for the START-3 extension, Beijing at once started the construction of 250-350 launch silos for DF-41 ICBMs with 6-10 warheads each. To their strategic nuclear potential of at least 350 warheads, the Chinese may add another 1500-3500 warheads and 250-350 strategic launchers. Thus, the US is really losing the nuclear arms race: to Russia, in terms of quality, and to China, in terms of quantity. This is what worries the head of the US Strategic Command.

Permalink Russian MoD Has Info on Contacts Between Ukraine, UK on Nuke Tech

Earlier in the day, Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov announced plans to bring up Ukraine's alleged efforts to stage a dirty bomb provocation up at the United Nations. On Sunday, Russia's defense minister informed his NATO counterparts on the threat of a Ukrainian dirty bomb false flag attack. Kiev and its sponsors have dismissed the allegations.  The Russian military has information on contacts between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky's office and British representatives on the matter of nuclear weapons technology, Igor Kirillov, the head of Russia's Radiation, Chemical and Biological Defense Troops, has revealed. 💬 "We have information on contacts between the Ukrainian president's office and representatives of Britain on the possible acquisition of nuclear weapon technology," Kirillov said in a briefing Monday. The senior officer echoed concerns voiced by Defense Minister Shoigu on Sunday - namely that Kiev was 💬 "planning a provocation involving the detonation of a so-called 'dirty bomb', or a low-yield nuclear weapon," and then claiming that the explosion was caused by a Russian tactical nuclear weapon. 💬 "The purpose of such a provocation is to accuse Russia of using weapons of mass destruction in the Ukrainian theater of operations and thereby launch a powerful anti-Russian campaign throughout the world aimed at undermining global confidence in Moscow," Kirillov said. 💬 "As a result of such a dirty bomb provocation, Kiev expects to intimidate the local population, increase the flow of refugees across Europe, and 'expose' the Russian Federation as a nuclear terrorist."
