Permalink US, NATO seeking Russia’s defeat on battlefield — Lavrov

The United States and its NATO allies are seeking to win a victory over Russia on the `battlefield’ to destroy our country, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told TASS in an interview. 💬 "The actions by the collective West and their puppet [Ukrainian President Vladimir] Zelensky confirm the global nature of the Ukrainian crisis. It is no secret that the strategic goal of the US and its NATO allies is to win a victory over Russia on the battlefield as a mechanism of weakening or even destroying our country," Lavrov said. "Our opponents will just do about anything to achieve this goal," he added.  According to Russia’s top diplomat, the beneficiary of a ‘hot conflict’ is the United States who has been seeking to get the most out of it both economically and strategically. "Washington has also been solving a key geopolitical goal of breaking the traditional bonds between Russia and Europe and making their European satellites even more dependent on them," Lavrov emphasized.

Permalink RE.: Appointment of the New WHO Chief Scientist, Jeremy Farrar

Elena Panina (Елена Панина) | The appointment of the new WHO chief scientist, Jeremy Farrar, a Briton, went unnoticed in Russia (neither TASS nor RIA reported it) on 13 December. He is a well-known figure in his own circles and a landmark, as they say. Farrar is the director of the Wellcome Trust, a giant centre for funding medical and biological research (turnover in 2020: £464 million). An influential healthcare businessman whose name is regularly mentioned in conjunction with both Anthony Fauci and Bill Gates. Knight of the Order of the British Empire, knighted in 2019. And one of the most staunch critics of the laboratory origin of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus strain that caused the COVID-19 pandemic. It was largely through Farrar's efforts that such theories were branded as conspiracy theories in scientific journals and respectable media. And anyone who did not share the official position was subjected to unprecedented silencing and discrediting by the medical establishment. And now, from spring 2023, this gentleman will begin overseeing the WHO's Office of Scientific Affairs, "bringing together the best minds in science and innovation around the world", as the organisation's website says. This means that the suppression of dissent in global medical science is reaching a new level. And the chances of ever finding out the truth about the origins of SARS-CoV-2 are becoming vanishingly small. (DeepL.com)

Permalink ‘Pro-Nazi’ Germany and Japan have no place at UNSC – Russian ambassador

The diplomat has lashed out at “US-occupied” nations for their vote on a Moscow-sponsored resolution | Germany and Japan should not get permanent seats at the UN Security Council after voting against a Russia-sponsored resolution denouncing Nazism, a senior Russian diplomat has suggested. The decision by Berlin and Tokyo “insults the memory of the victims of German Nazism and Japanese militarism,” Oleg Stepanov, the Russian ambassador to Canada, said in remarks to RIA Novosti, which the Foreign Ministry published in full on Tuesday.  Germany’s vote casts doubt on expressions of remorse for the crimes committed by the Nazis during World War II, he stated. Japan meanwhile, has never reconciled with its dark past, considering that its government honors war criminals, he said. 💬 “It is clear that such behavior can only be possible with permission from the US, under whose multilayered informal occupation both nations remain,” the diplomat claimed.  The remarks refer to a vote at the UN General Assembly earlier this month on a Russia-proposed non-binding resolution condemning glorification of Nazism and various forms of xenophobia. The document was adopted by 120 votes in favor, with 50 against and 10 abstentions.

Permalink Scientists reconstruct ‘handsome’ face of Ramses II

Researchers used CT software to “digitally unwrap” the mummy of one of ancient Egypt's greatest pharaohs | Egyptian and British scientists have unveiled a facial reconstruction of Ramses II, having used computer tomography (CT) software to “digitally unwrap” the mummy of the famous Ancient Egyptian pharaoh. The joint scientific project allowed historians for the first time to observe what the ruler looked like at different points in his life.  The researchers say they used earlier CT scans of the pharaoh’s mummy and applied them to analysis software. They were then able to differentiate between the skull and other materials used during the embalming process and produce a 3D rendering of the skull. They then applied the average facial muscle layer measurements believed to be appropriate for ancient Egyptians to reconstruct the pharaoh’s face. 💬 "This is the only scientific facial reconstruction of Ramesses II based on the CT scan of his actual mummy,” explained professor Sahar Saleem of Cairo University, who led the project, adding that previous attempts were “mostly artistic, based on his mummy’s face.”
