As the world sees the true crisis that is the result of a lack of being energy independent, Shell Gas company is sticking to its morals saying it will no longer buy Gas from Russia. Average gas prices have hit their highest in fourteen years, and are approaching all-time highs.

On Tuesday, Shell announced it will immediately stop purchasing Russian crude oil. The company, based in the U.K., also said it would be willing to close its service stations in response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

In a statement, Shell said the move follows last week’s decision to end investments in Russia and that it is “aligned with new government guidance.” “We will do this as fast as possible, but the physical location and availability of alternatives mean this could take weeks to complete and will lead to reduced throughput at some of our refineries” said the statement.

Shell CEO Ben Van Beurden went so far as to apologize for the company’s purchase of a cargo of Russian crude for refining into gas and diesel as recent as last week. “We are acutely aware that our decision…despite being made with security of supplies at the forefront of our thinking – was on the right one and we are sorry” he said.

On Monday, the Kremlin threatened to cut supplies of natural gas to Germany for its decision to end Russia’s Nord Stream 2 pipeline project. Russia also threatened that oil prices could hit $300 a barrel if the West bans Russian oil.

National Review reports:

The company will also start shuttering its service stations, aviation fuels and lubricants operations in Russia while kickstarting a phased withdrawal from Russian petroleum products, pipeline gas and liquified natural gas…

…The company pledged to donate profits from the remaining barrels of Russian oil it processes to a fund to help the people of Ukraine.

    If the rest of the story of the Russia/Ukraine saga got any media coverage these companies & countries trying to destroy Russia would know how ridiculous their actions are.

    NATO & The US under Obama started this mess % & The EU joined the party.

    Putin is no “Choir Boy” but NATO, The US, & EU have violated every treaty ever made with Russia & have installed their chosen leaders in Ukraine & raped the country just like Biden & his son.

Mental health crisis spikes among Afghan women after Taliban regained control two years ago

The women of Afghanistan are suffering a mental health crisis since the Taliban regained power two years ago. According to a joint report from three U.N. agencies released Tuesday, approximately 70% of women experience feelings of anxiety, isolation and depression.

The numbers continue to rise, as there has already been a significant jump between April and June of this year alone, with an increase from 57%  the preceding quarter.

The report, conducted by U.N. Women, the International Organization for Migration and the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, interviewed women online, in-person and in group consultations as well as individual telesurveys.

592 Afghan women in 22 of Afghanistan’s 34 provinces took part in the study. The Associated Press reports:

They have barred women from most areas of public life and work and banned girls from going to school beyond the sixth grade. They have prohibited Afghan women from working at local and non-governmental organizations. The ban was extended to employees of the United Nations in April.

Opportunities to study continued to shrink as community-based education by international organizations was banned and home-based schooling initiatives were regularly shut down by the de facto authorities — a term use by the U.N. for the Taliban government.

Afghanistan is the only country in the world with restrictions on female education and the rights of Afghan women and children are on the agenda of the United Nations General Assembly in New York.
