    At U.N., Amal Clooney pushes for Ukraine war crimes justice
    Michelle Nichols
    Wed, April 27, 2022, 5:20 PM
    By Michelle Nichols

    UNITED NATIONS (Reuters) - Human rights lawyer Amal Clooney urged countries at the United Nations on Wednesday to focus on international justice for war crimes in Ukraine so evidence does not sit in storage - as it has done for victims of Islamic State (ISIS) in Iraq and Syria.

    "Ukraine is, today, a slaughterhouse. Right in the heart of Europe," Clooney told an informal U.N. Security Council meeting on accountability in Ukraine, organized by France and Albania.

    Clooney recalled a 2017 Security Council vote to approve a measure she helped lobby for - the creation of a U.N. team to collect, preserve and store evidence of possible international crimes committed by Islamic State in Iraq. It was the same year her son and daughter with U.S. actor George Clooney were born."

    Sisters Recount Perilous Escape From Mariupol as Russians Closed In

    Vera and Nicole thought they had endured the worst of the war as Russia besieged their city, Mariupol, for weeks. The sisters helped neighbors bury neighbors, melted snow for drinking water and survived a bombardment that tore a hole in the ceiling of their home.

    But by mid-March, they knew it was time to leave. They heard that the Russian invaders were sweeping the southern port city and transferring Ukrainians by bus either to Russia or to Russian-controlled territory.

    The sisters took Vera’s 4-year-old son, Kirill, slipped out of Mariupol on foot and embarked on a harrowing journey. They said they crossed a heavily mined road strewn with corpses; encountered a Russian sniper near a church who waved them on; and survived an artillery barrage in a field of flowers. After two days, the trio staggered onto a highway, only to be met by a Russian soldier who directed them to a packed bus.

    “He told us he had liberated us and asked why our faces had gone dark,” Nicole said. “The way forward was maybe a prison — but it was our only option.”

    The bus took them to a school in the nearby town of Nikolske, which they said had been converted into a Russian-operated registration center where Ukrainians were filling out forms with their personal information. That was their first brush with what Ukrainian and U.S. officials and human rights groups have called “filtration” centers they say are part of a system of forced expulsions of Ukrainians to Russia.

    Forced population transfers and so-called “filtration” are tactics that were used by Russia during the Chechen wars in the 1990s, according to Frederick W. Kagan, a senior fellow and director of the Critical Threats Project at the American Enterprise Institute. He said the strategy was to terrify the population into submission, keep control over witnesses to atrocities and separate out anyone seen as resistant to a Russian takeover.

    The story of Vera and Nicole, who asked that their last names not be used for fear of Russian reprisals, first came to light when they contacted a British humanitarian organization, United with Ukraine, which has been working to get aid to Mariupol since March. The group arranged contact with The New York Times."

    putin has gone so far out in % of his forces committed to the illegal invasion and war in Ukraine that along with his other offences against world nations, he has little military left at home to defend russia. That is his fault, no reason to deflect and threaten the West. If he truly thought the west was going to invade, he would bring home a fair % of troops he has abroad, something like 80% of total military?

    Oleg Tinkov in Moscow on Feb. 17, 2004, when he was known as Russia's "beer oligarch." (Sergei Kivrin/The New York Times)
    Oleg Y. Tinkov was worth more than $9 billion in November, renowned as one of Russia’s few self-made business tycoons after building his fortune outside the energy and minerals industries that were the playgrounds of Russian kleptocracy.

    Then, last month, Tinkov, the founder of one of Russia’s biggest banks, criticized the war in Ukraine in a post on Instagram. The next day, he said, President Vladimir Putin’s administration contacted his executives and threatened to nationalize his bank if it did not cut ties with him. Last week, he sold his 35% stake to a Russian mining billionaire in what he describes as a “desperate sale, a fire sale” that was forced on him by the Kremlin.

    “I couldn’t discuss the price,” Tinkov said. “It was like a hostage — you take what you are offered. I couldn’t negotiate.”"

    putin is messing up it's economy due to it's illegal invasion of Ukraine in more ways than the sanctions imposed to get him to leave all of Ukraine: All of the Donbas as well as Crimea and stay out. Though several russians interviewed on video in one article may be happy about this, as well as many that are mis-informed by putins control over all media and arrests of anyone calling it a war, invasion,... protesting it,.... russia lost so much in the first two months of the war. They are unlikely to succeed in much even with all their mercenaries, Syrians, Belorus, and mainly new conscripts (including reportedly conscripting Ukrainians in territory they had in Donbas region, for cannon fodder. Extreme war crimes and added crimes against humanity).

    Reaction to Wall Street Journal Article: "DACA Is Restored After Court Rules DHS Head Served Illegally"

    Another glaring example of judicial activism designed to thwart President Trump's ability to govern. President Obama created DACA by Executive Order lacking the ability to work with Congress. My understanding is that Executive Orders can be changed or cancelled by succeeding Administrations. That is until Donald Trump became President. Like many of his initiatives, lower court judges have obstructed the Executive Branch. It is high time for news organizations, including WSJ, do some soul searching. Will WSJ take bias out of its reporting or will it follow the path of most news media, ABC, NBC, CBS, MSNBC, NEWSY, Fox News and my local newspaper, The Chicago Tribune. These organizations purvey narratives that purport to contain facts. Frequently, they support conclusions the media arrived at. In what direction will WSJ go? Will WSJ demonstrate independence? Will WSJ express principled positions? As a US based worldwide news organization, will WSJ stand for America?
