Because that would be an excellent way to get a bunch of NATO countries to stop fucking around and actually directly intervene both there and in Ukraine.

As I see it, using Transnistria as a western "front" by the Z army to encircle Kiev, will definitely risk more border incidents. This is without even considering Moldova's EU candidate status, and Moldova's ambiguous relationship with that " breakaway " region.

Officials are set to ask Russia's Federation Council and the State Duma "to implement measures to protect Transnistria in the face of increased pressure from Moldova," local media reported the resolution as saying.

The cogress said the Moldovan government had unleashed "economic war" on the region, blocking crucial imports and seeking to turn it into a "ghetto".

Plastic producers have known for more than 30 years that recycling is not an economically or technically feasible plastic waste management solution. That has not stopped them from promoting it, according to a new report.

“The companies lied,” said Richard Wiles, president of fossil-fuel accountability advocacy group the Center for Climate Integrity (CCI), which published the report. “It’s time to hold them accountable for the damage they’ve caused.”

A total of 1,256 methane super-emitter events occurred between January 2019 and June 2023, according to the new data. Pakistan, India and Bangladesh lead the list of nations with the most large leaks, followed by Argentina, Uzbekistan and Spain.

Decomposing waste is responsible for about 20% of human-caused methane emissions.

Prof Euan Nisbet, a methane expert at Royal Holloway University of London, said: “Big landfills make a great deal of methane but it doesn’t cost much to bulldoze soil over a stinking, burning landfill. It’s not rocket science.”

The bot missed what Stoltenberg said:

"The Nato chief, Jens Stoltenberg, has said any attack on the western military alliance would be met with a “united and forceful response”, after Donald Trump invited Russia to attack member countries that he perceived as not meeting their financial obligations.

Stoltenberg said in a statement: “Any suggestion that allies will not defend each other undermines all of our security, including that of the US, and puts American and European soldiers at increased risk. I expect that regardless of who wins the presidential election, the US will remain a strong and committed Nato ally.”

The men’s bodies were recovered from a river on the vast plantation near Thika on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day last year. The four were part of a group of men who it is claimed were chased by the farm’s security guards after going to steal pineapples on 21 December.

We have a deal. Unity," said European Council President Charles Michel in a post on X. "All 27 leaders agreed on an additional 50 billion euro support package for Ukraine within the EU budget."

The announcement came despite staunch objections from Hungary in December and in the days leading up to Thursday's summit in Brussels.

Ukraine's economy minister said Kyiv expects to receive the first tranche of 4.5 billion euros ($4.9 billion) from the EU in March.

Aaron and his fellows were trafficked into a prison-like compound called KK Park. Here, thousands of people are forced into criminality — to scam people in the US, Europe and China. The UN estimates that more than 100,000 people are being forced to work in scam centers in Myanmar.

DW's investigative unit met with several survivors of the compound. They described widespread surveillance, torture and even weekly murders.

KK Park's scamming operations trace back to a complex network of businesses and associations used by criminals to legitimize their crimes and launder millions in defrauded assets — and that network continues to expand from Southeast Asia to Africa, Europe and North America.

They are actually working towards a petition to ban AFD as being unconstitutional and anti democratic.

Wolfgang Thierse, a former president of the German parliament who is considered a moral authority in the country, threw his weight behind an initiative to explore the possibility of banning the party on the grounds of anti-constitutionality.

He also offered his support for a petition looking to revoke the basic rights of prominent party members considered to be enemies of the constitution. A petition specifically directed against the Thuringia AfD’s group leader, Björn Höcke, has gained traction since the Potsdam meeting was revealed and by Tuesday had garnered more than 830,000 signatures.

It's never been about reading the post/ articles. Mmm?!

Is that good? The article gives no context for the results.

For context here another article by France24

And they state:

" Labelled a separatist by Beijing, the winner in Taiwan’s presidential race has promised to stick to Tsai’s policy of maintaining the status quo, which avoids open declarations of independence while rejecting China’s sovereignty claims. "

All the best sorting the mods out!

World News is for all News OUTSIDE the United States, that's what the normal "News" is for

The division you make between domestic and worldnews is US centric. US newssites and journals follow this same logic. So, US citizens read their domestic news and everything that is not US, is considered worldnews . I get that.

The problem is that what sometimes is domestic to US, is sometimes worldnews for the rest of the world. This means some domestic US news is considered worldnews in other non US newspapers.

I don't care especially about domestic US News, but when it's considered major news by Non Us newsagents, it's usually important for the world as a whole.

Please, consider this element as well.

This is culturally and politically so extremely wrong. Good that some Italian Polticians called against it,and I really hope Italy is cancelling it.

How is Dugin even allowed to enter the EU/ Schengen area; isn't he on a sanctioned persons list?!

This is probably just the tip of the iceberg:

"we still don’t know the extent of the foreign payments that Donald Trump received.(...)

James Comer and House Republicans buried further evidence of the Trump family’s staggering corruption."

Also as quoted by The Guardian livefeed:

" Now, Ukraine claims 34 officers were killed, including the fleet commander, admiral Viktor Sokolov with 105 injured, but it has provided no evidence to support its claim and the claims have not yet been independently be verified. The figures are also vastly different from what Russia has reported.

Evidence will probably follow suite..
