Russia has reached Kyiv, takes negotiations off table until Ukraine stands down

Russian troops have entered Kyiv, and Putin’s Foreign Minister Sergey V. Lavrov has made it clear to Ukraine that no negotiating will take place until Ukraine stands down. Still fighting, Ukraine’s leaders have told its capital residents of Kyiv to “prepare Molotov cocktails” to defend itself.

Officials also warned its citizens to stay indoors as Russia’s forces advance after missile strikes hit Kyiv. Reports say a rocket crashed into a residential building. Ukraine President Volodymyr Zelensky gave a televised address vowing to defend the country, lamenting that no foreign troops were coming to their aid.

Moscow has made it unequivocally clear that the intention is to swiftly topple Zelensky’s government, which is democratically elected. Ukrainian officials have announced at least 137 Ukrainian soldiers and civilians have been killed.

Russia touted it had seized control over the historically famous Chernobyl nuclear plant, and said it was working with Ukrainian guards to ensure its safety. Ukraine, however, indicated that to be false, saying instead that U.S. troops were holding the plant’s personnel hostage.

Russia’s attack against Ukraine ends a peaceful era in Europe, being one of the most significant military actions since World War II. The New York Times reports:

“Russia’s attack against Ukraine…raises the prospect of a rekindled Cold War between Russia and the West, with potentially devastating consequences for the security structure that has governed Europe since the Soviet Union’s collapse three decades ago…

Essentially, President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia is seeking to redraw the post-Cold War boundaries of Europe, establishing a broad, Russian-dominated security zone and drawing Ukraine back into Moscow’s orbit.”

    Ukraine socialists now begging USA to help? You should have thought about that before 2014 and your radical socialist Antifa rioting in Kiev. And the left has been suppressing, litigating, canceling Christian conservatives and their businesses (like Trudeau) especially hard during and since Obama. But oh NOW they want us to pray with them for Ukraine? Just what do they think “reap what you sow” means?

    The only people in the Ukrainian region hating this annexation are the Euro socialists and the stupid left.

    Putin is invading. This started in 2014 with Obama using the CIA to help socialists overthrow & ousting of a duly elected Russian leaning Ukrainian president. Back at ya. They think that they can play Antifa and Occupy with Putin. Not so.

    WAR : by Facebook: These are obvious questions that need to be asked.
    We’re all are Doomed if the Father doesn’t step in & save us.
    (the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine’s “FACEBOOK PAGE”,
    the battalion decided the only way to stop them was to blow up the bridge, reports the Daily Mail. Shakun, a marine, blew himself up along with the bridge; an act of bravery and valor so great it is hard to comprehend.)

    According to the “FACEBOOK PAGE”, Shakun told his comrades he had no time to escape and was going to detonate. Immediately after, they heard the explosion.

    When was he fighting……. 1750? When the military couldn’t have a delayed explosion?
    Are you “SERIOUS?’ We’ve been giving Ukraine for the last 15 years and they didn’t have a detonator?

    The EX-KGB ASSASSIN wants to get the riches the USSR had back.
    The oligarchs are complaining the freedoms the people enjoy are costing them too much. And “””putin””” himself requires a bigger share for his complicit acquiescence.
    The last “””mansion””” of “””putin””” cost $85 Millions to build on the Black Sea. ( Supposedly a “retreat” for the highest people in government. But the Security is a private company working ONLY for “””putin”””!

    You’re wrong. What is happening now is the result of 30 years of NEOCON US aggression on Russia.

REPORT: China has vast network of covert police stations around the world

China has a vast network of covert police stations abroad, according to a recent report by Safeguard Defenders, an NGO that focuses on human rights violations in China and other Asian countries. These police stations serve consular functions, but are also used by China to crack down on what the CCP deems “illegal” activity of Chinese nationals abroad. The police stations include at least 38 run by the Fuzhou City police, and 22 run by the Qingtian City police. Cities housing these police stations include New York, Toronto (which has three stations), London (two), Paris (three), Buenos Aires, Rio De Janeiro, and Tokyo.

Key findings of the report are below.

“Persuaded to return”

According to China, China has “persuaded to return [to China]” 230,000 Chinese nationals living aboard from April 2021 to July 2022 alone to face charges of fraud and telecommunications fraud. A Yangxia police station set up in Mozambique, for example, persuaded a Chinese national to return to China after being accused of stealing money from his employer. Chinese authorities also put pressure on the accused family to convince the accused to surrender.

Roughly 54,000 Chinese nationals were persuaded to return from northern Myanmar alone, in the first nine months of 2021. In July 2022, the government of Wenchang City warned that its citizens living in northern Myanmar must check in with their local police stations or face multiple penalties including blocking their children from attending urban schools back in China. Similarly, in February 2022, the government of Liayang City stated that Chinese “illegally staying” in northern Myanmar must return or the bank accounts of their immediate family members could be frozen.

The Nine Forbidden Countries

China has claimed that nine countries contain serious levels of fraud and telecom fraud perpetrated by Chinese nationals. Since November 2021, China has declared that Chinese citizens living in these nine countries must return to China immediately unless they have an “emergency reason” or a “strict necessity” to travel or stay in those countries. Those countries are: Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Malaysia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the UAE, and Turkey. However, the report questions whether these countries are truly awash in such fraud, as most of China’s oversees police stations are in the West, and only one of the nine countries (Cambodia) has such a police station. Chinese staying in the nine forbidden countries, as well as threats to family members as stated above, creates a “guilt-by-association” atmosphere intended to repatriate the Chinese nationals.

Conclusion

According to the report, Chinese police stations abroad serve to bypass “bilateral extradition treaties or other mechanisms of judicial cooperation” to cooperate with CCP-linked NGOs which effectively “[sets] up an alternative policing and judicial system within third countries.” Instead of using international judicial cooperation, which establishes due process, the presumption of innocence, and the right to a fair trial, China uses the above “persuade-to-return” methods and transnational police stations to circumvent international law and coerce Chinese nationals to return to China for trials. These policies show the power of China’s long-arm oppression over its own subjects.
