Country in Eastern Europe
In 2021, Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko began letting migrants cross his country's border into Poland to retaliate against EU sanctions. Poland strengthened its border controls, but the number of illegal migrant crossings into Germany has been surging in recent months. The Brandenburg region in eastern Germany now finds itself at the crossroads between the Belarus and Balkans migrant routes. Some leaders in Germany are calling for the return of stationary controls in the border region and other eastern German states. The German government says it is considering this option, but local communities say they are overwhelmed. Our correspondents followed a federal police patrol in the region.

*) Demonstrators protest outside French Embassy in Vienna against abaya ban A group of demonstrators have gathered in front of the French Embassy in Vienna to voice opposition in a display of solidarity against a recent ban on abayas in French schools. Organised as a peaceful protest, participants wore long dresses and carried banners with slogans such as "Abaya is our right and identity", "Do not judge women by their clothing", and "My clothes, my choice." The protest aimed to express strong disagreement with the decision in France that prohibits the wearing of abayas in educational institutions. *) Sweden failed to fulfil duties under NATO bid: Erdogan Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has criticized Sweden for failing to meet its obligations under a deal with Türkiye to join NATO, especially in light of recent terrorist protests in Sweden. Besides drafting new laws to better combat terrorism, Sweden must also enforce the measures in these laws, Erdogan said. Turkish president says these are evidence of Stockholm's inability to combat terrorism effectively. *) Burkina Faso, Mali, Niger, sign defence pact Mali, Niger and Burkina Faso, three West African Sahel nations ruled by military juntas, have signed a security pact promising to come to the aid of each other in case of any rebellion or external aggression. "Our priority is the fight against terrorism in the three countries," Mali's Defence Minister Abdoulaye Diop told journalists. Three countries struggling to contain militant insurgents, relations with neighbours and partners strained by coups. *) Death toll from Libya floods climbs to 11,300 in Derna — UN The death toll from the catastrophic flooding in Libya's eastern city of Derna has climbed to 11,300, the United Nations said in an update. Another 10,100 people are still missing in the devastated city, the UN's Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs said late on Saturday. Elsewhere in eastern Libya outside Derna, the flooding took an additional 170 lives, the update said. *) TRT co-production 'Green Border' wins 7 awards at Venice Film Festival Green Border, a Türkiye's national broadcaster TRT's co-production directed by Polish master Agnieszka Holland, wins 7 awards at the 80th Venice Film Festival, including the Special Jury Prize.

The following is a presentation by anarchists from Ukraine and Belarus, alongside a question and answer portion with the audience, conducted in part via live translation services. This panel is facilitated in part by Nina of Anarchist Black Cross Dresden, and features presentations by Masha (Belarus) an anarchist in Warsaw, Nastya is a member of Solidarity Zone (not speaking on behalf of that group), Mira from Anarchist Black Cross Kyiv and Solidarity Collectives and Boris of Belarus Anarchist Black Cross. The discussion, much like previous discussions by anarchists supporting anti-authoritarians joining the armed defense against the Russian invasion, was interrupted a number of times by pacifists or others who didn't want a discussion of the complexities of joining the territorial defense forces to have space. Those interruptions were mostly not recorded as they happened off-mic, but you'll hear the reactions to them. I felt like this audio was important to share here with the audience, particularly in spite of their silencing. I recorded this at the 2023 St-Imier anarchist gathering on the 151st anniversary of the first anarchist and anti-authoritarian Workers International, following the purges by Marxists and Blanquists. Like the first one in 1872 hosted by the Jura Federation, this gathering was hosted in small village of St-Imier with a population of 4,000 being nearly doubled in size over the course of 5 days of workshops, concerts, discussions, food, film showings and tablings. You can find reflections from some folks at crimethinc.com, alongside a link to recordings from the live, multi-lingual radio broadcast throughout the event and the website for the gathering where you'll see lists of happenings from the week. Hopefully in the near future you'll be able to find the recordings of the presentations that got recorded such as this one, some in video and some in audio. I'll be reflecting on some of this in an upcoming episode of the ItsGoingDown podcast while speaking with my friend and former co-host Scott Branson about how the bookfair here in Asheville went. Here's an article (in French) about an Islamophobic scandal that occurred with members of the French Anarchist Federation (Kropotkin). Past interviews on the subjects of: Belarus Ukraine Russia

Wir beginnen unser Programm mit einem Rückblick auf einige aktuelle Nachrichten. Als Erstes sprechen wir über die Entscheidung des ukrainischen Präsidenten Wolodimir Selenskij, seinen Verteidigungsminister nach Korruptionsvorwürfen abzulösen. Dann besprechen wir die Entscheidung der Nobel-Stiftung vom Samstag, ihre Einladung an Vertreter aus Russland, Belarus und dem Iran zur Teilnahme an der diesjährigen Nobelpreisverleihung zurückzuziehen. Im Wissenschaftsteil unseres Programms sprechen wir heute über eine Studie, die zeigt, dass Alkohol die Wahrnehmung von Attraktivität nicht verbessert, aber die Wahrscheinlichkeit erhöht, dass alkoholisierte Personen mit Leuten interagieren, die sie besonders attraktiv finden. Und wir beenden den ersten Teil unseres Programms mit dem Burning Man Festival in Nevada, das wegen einer Straßenblockade durch Klimaschutzaktivisten und aufgrund von schlechtem Wetter gestört wurde. Das führte zur Absage von Veranstaltungen und zu Einschränkungen für die Teilnehmer. Weiter geht es mit dem zweiten Teil unseres Programms, „Trending in Germany“. Diese Woche werden wir über die Bundesjugendspiele sprechen, die ab diesem Schuljahr reformiert werden sollen. Im Vordergrund sollen nun Freude am Sport und Teamgeist stehen, und nicht mehr der Wettbewerb, insbesondere für die kleinen Kinder. Wir werden auch darüber sprechen, ob das Tragen eines Helms für Radfahrer Pflicht werden sollte oder nicht. Bisher kann jeder selbst entscheiden, ob er beim Radfahren in Deutschland einen Helm trägt. Doch dies soll sich laut einem Vorschlag der konservativen Union nun ändern. Selenskij ersetzt den ukrainischen Verteidigungsminister nach Korruptionsvorwürfen Russland, Belarus und der Iran sind bei der Nobelpreisverleihung in Schweden nicht willkommen Studie zeigt, dass Alkoholkonsum die Wahrnehmung von Attraktivität nicht beeinflusst Das missglückte Burning Man Festival von 2023 Keine einzige Medaille für Deutschland bei Leichtathletik-WM Ärger um den Görlitzer Park

Four days after a fiery plane crash, Russian investigators said they have confirmed the death of Yevgeny Prigozhin, the Wagner mercenary boss who led a brief but shocking mutiny in June. Nigel Gould-Davies, senior fellow for Russia and Eurasia at the International Institute for Strategic Studies, joins Steve Gutterman to take a look at the potential consequences for Russia, the war in Ukraine, and Belarus.
August 27th 2023 Yuriy discusses the aftermath of the liquidation of the leadership of the private military company Wagner, linking Putin's involvement due to his calm reaction and considers the fate of its members, and lessons to be learned, other than simply the futility of negotiating with Putin? ----more---- You can email Yuriy, ask him questions or simply send him a message of support: firstname.lastname@example.org You can help Yuriy and his family by donating to his GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/f/help-yuriys-family Yuriy's Podbean Patron sign-up to give once or regularly: https://patron.podbean.com/yuriy Buy Yuriy a coffee here: https://bmc.link/yuriymat ----more---- TRANSCRIPT: (Podbean app users can enjoy closed captions) It is August 27. Sorry but I am going to talk about Prigozhin and his private military company Wagner again. Do you know why I am now sure that Putin is behind the liquidation of the entire leadership of Wagner? I have seen his address on this matter. If Prigozhin and his gang had been killed by someone else, Putin would not have sat so calmly, and he would not have talked about the investigation, which should find out all the circumstances of the plane crash that killed the top mercenaries of Russia. It must be understood that for a very long time the same people, FSB officers, were responsible for the security of both Putin and Prigozhin. And if someone else was behind the murder of the leader of the mercenaries and his closest entourage, Putin, would be in panic right now, instead of sitting calmly in the front of the television cameras. What Putin has turned Russia into is not even a mafia structure, because the mafia usually has some concept of honor. Putin turned Russia into a bloody garbage can. When the Prigozhin gang rioted, he was very scared. It turned out that no one was in a hurry to save him. Almost no one was ready to stop the march of the Wagnerites to Moscow. Therefore, Putin promised something to his rebellious mercenaries, give them some security guarantees and thereby stopped the offensive. But he did not even think of keeping any promises, he was just buying time. And when he had the opportunity to destroy the entire command of the former rebels at once, he did it. Because he is a liar and a coward. Because his word is worthless. He can promise one thing and do something completely different. Moreover, he always does so. He always lies. What will happen next with the private military company, Wagner? There will be nothing. Consider it gone already. This is an ancient Roman tradition -to completely destroy legions whose command dared to revolt. The entire top leadership of Wagner has been eliminated. Most of the real military specialists have been distributed among various units of the Russian army. Former prisoners and adventure seekers who joined Wagner either seeking release from the prison or enticed by money, have been sent home, killed or found themselves behind bars again. Some separate units of these mercenaries still operate somewhere in Syria or Mali, but it is only a matter of time when they will either be completely destroyed or will be subordinated to some local warlords or will simply be abandoned in foreign countries. Even from Belarus, where most of the mercenaries were resettled, they are already being deported back to Russia, where criminal cases, alcoholism and oblivion await them. Of course, none of the Wagnerites will go over to the side of Ukraine and will not join our struggle, because first of all, they are simply unprincipled mercenaries who will not even think that it is possible to fight for something other than money. And secondly, almost every one of them has so much blood of Ukrainian citizens on their hands that nothing awaits them in Ukraine except many years of prison. The history of Wagner private military company is very dirty and bloody and it comes to an end. However, like any other story, it can teach us many things. First and foremost, if someone in Russia starts a rebellion, it must be carried through to the end at any cost, otherwise it will get worse. Moreover, we have once again seen that Putin's promises, his guarantees, his honest word are worth nothing. It's simply void. In other words, there is no point for Ukraine to even attempt to negotiate with him. He will for sure deceive and betray any promises he could give.
