Lebanon Faces Increasing Violence; RussiaGate Continues to Unravel

Laith Marouf, broadcaster and journalist based in Beirut, joins us to discuss Lebanon. International security experts fear Lebanon may fall into crisis and civil war as violence on the street escalates. The announcement that a court has refused to replace a judge who is involved in the investigation of last year's deadly port blast seems to have sparked street clashes, leaving at least six dead. Our hosts come together to discuss Russia-gate. Ukrainian citizen Konstantine Kilimnick reveals that he was not interviewed by any of the US government investigators allegedly investigating Russia-gate even though he was framed as an FSB operative. Investigative journalist Matt Taibbi was shocked to find that neither Robert Mueller nor any of the other US investigators had contacted and talked to Kilimnick, even though he served as a high-level US State Department operative. Dan Lazare, investigative journalist and author of "America's Undeclared War," joins us to discuss Belarus. Belarusian President Lukashenko's administration refuses to cower to the US empire's neoliberal asset privatization plan, and has therefore landed at the top of their regime change list. This was evidenced by President Joe Biden mentioning the Eastern European nation in his UN speech on a list of nations that need US support to achieve democracy.Professor Ken Hammond, professor of East Asian and global history at New Mexico State University and activist with Pivot to Peace, joins us to discuss North Korea. North Korean leader Kim Jong Un seems to be working to create an air of legitimacy on the world stage. Their recent arms show was presented in traditional western style rather than the traditional boisterous manner to which we have become accustomed. His appearance in a suit and tie is also believed to be part of a makeover for international media consumption.Robert Fantina, journalist and Palestine activist, joins us to discuss Iran. The US Secretary of State's recent meeting with Israeli representatives has been followed by brash talk about war with Iran from both nations. Blinken has said that "time is running out" for Iran, and Israeli officials claim the right to attack the Islamic Republic at any time they decide that the threat has escalated to a point of no return. Dr. Linwood Tauheed, associate professor of economics at the University of Missouri- Kansas City, joins us to discuss Russia and China's fiscal policy. The leaders of Russia and China both have spoken out against US fiscal policy. Russian President Putin argues that the US policy of economic sanctions and profligate spending is part of the reason that inflation is rising worldwide. Also, Chinese President Xi Jinping said that the looming US debt crisis spells real trouble for the world economy.

Trainiere dein Hörverstehen mit den Nachrichten der Deutschen Welle von Donnerstag – als Text und als verständlich gesprochene Audio-Datei.Amnesty wirft Polen illegale Pushbacks vor Die Menschenrechtsorganisation Amnesty International (AI) wirft Polen vor, die seit Wochen an der Grenze zu Belarus gestrandeten afghanischen Flüchtlinge illegal zurückgewiesen zu haben. Die Direktorin des AI-Büros für Europäische Institutionen, Eve Geddie, verwies auf die Auswertung entsprechender Satellitenbilder und Fotos. Die 32 Flüchtlinge haben keinen Zugang zu Nahrung, Wasser und Medikamenten. Sie gaben an, nach der Machtübernahme der Taliban in Afghanistan im August von Belarus aus die Grenze zu Polen überschritten zu haben. Später seien sie zurückgeschickt worden. Dringlichkeitssitzung des UN-Sicherheitsrats zu Nordkorea Der Weltsicherheitsrat kommt an diesem Donnerstag zu einer Dringlichkeitssitzung über die Lage in Nordkorea zusammen. Das Treffen war von den USA, Großbritannien und Frankreich beantragt worden. Die drei Veto-Mächte reagieren damit auf die Mitteilung Pjöngjangs, am Dienstag erfolgreich eine Hyperschall-Rakete getestet zu haben. Mit Hyperschall werden Geschwindigkeiten oberhalb der fünffachen Schallgeschwindigkeit bezeichnet. Hyperschall-Raketen sind zudem flexibler als herkömmliche Raketen, was ihre Zerstörung durch Abwehrsysteme stark erschwert. Mehr als 100 Tote nach Gewalt in Gefängnis in Ecuador Nach schweren Ausschreitungen in einer Haftanstalt in Ecuador hat Präsident Guillermo Lasso einen Ausnahmezustand in den Gefängnissen des Landes ausgerufen. Im Online-Dienst Twitter kündigte Lasso an, mit einem Sicherheitskomitee über die Lage zu beraten. In einem Gefängnis in der Hafenstadt Guayaquil hatten sich bewaffnete Mitglieder rivalisierender Banden mit Feuerwaffen und Granaten bekämpft. Nach Behörden-Angaben wurden mehr als 100 Menschen getötet und über 50 verletzt. Laut Staatsanwaltschaft wurden mindestens sechs Insassen enthauptet. Unter den Verletzten sind zwei Polizisten. Auch Mexiko schiebt Haitianer ab Nach den USA hat nun auch Mexiko damit begonnen, Migranten aus Haiti zurück in ihre Heimat zu schicken. Ein erster Flug aus der südöstlichen Stadt Villahermosa brachte 70 Haitianer, darunter 13 Minderjährige, nach Port-au-Prince, die Hauptstadt des Karibikstaates. Es handle sich um freiwillige "humanitäre Rückführungen" in Absprache mit den haitianischen Behörden, teilte die mexikanische Einwanderungsbehörde mit. Bis vor einigen Tagen hatten sich insgesamt etwa 15.000 Migranten, vor allem Haitianer, im texanischen Del Rio an der Grenze zu Mexiko versammelt, um in die USA zu gelangen. US-Gericht entzieht Vater von Britney Spears die Vormundschaft Im Vormundschaftsstreit um US-Popsängerin Britney Spears hat ein Gericht in Los Angeles zugunsten der Musikerin entschieden. Die Richterin Brenda Penny setzte Spears' Vater Jamie mit sofortiger Wirkung als Vormund ab und bestellte einen vorübergehenden neuen Vormund für die Sängerin. Dies sei "im besten Interesse" des Popstars. Die Sängerin war 2008 wegen psychischer Probleme vorübergehend in eine Klinik zwangseingewiesen worden. Der Vater übernahm daraufhin die Vormundschaft. Im Juni klagte Britney Spears vor Gericht, sie sei "traumatisiert" und "deprimiert" und wolle nur ihr Leben zurück.

The Tale of Two Russian Occupations: Georgia and Ukraine – Russian Roulette Episode 115   In this episode of Russian Roulette, Heather sits down with Mykola Bielieskov, Ph.D. student at the National Institute for Strategic Studies (NISS), Ukraine, and Natia Seskuria, associate fellow at the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI).  We discuss the effectiveness and shortcomings of Russia's hard and soft power influence tools in Georgia and Ukraine, including its “borderization” policy in Georgia, its “passportization” in Donbas, and the role of the Orthodox Church. Finally, we finish the conversation with recommendations regarding how the West can resist the challenges presented by Russia's occupation of Georgia and Ukraine's territories. Both Natia and Mykola participated in CSIS “Understanding the Russian Military Today” executive education program in June and this episode is inspired by their papers written as part of their independent research. In his paper, Mykola dissects Russia's military buildup near Ukraine's borders this spring, while in her paper, Natia focuses on Russia's “hybrid aggression” and influence tools in Georgia.

The Chinese government is, as ever, staying busy by devising new regulations. It's unleashed a raft of regulatory changes on everything from the limits on how much debt property developers are allowed to build up, to changes in the tax code and the breaking up of tech giants. But the Communist Party has also launched a series of rather paternalistic moves, reaching right into family homes, with measures designed to tackle perceived problems of laziness, or even what the state calls “spiritual pollution.” As Stephen McDonell reports from Beijing, it's as if there is nowhere that the Party doesn't know best - and no aspect of life where it's not prepared to take charge. The French government has expressed its fury after the decision by Australia to scrap a contract to buy French submarines. Canberra chose instead to enter a nuclear security pact for the Indo-Pacific with the US and the UK. “We've been stabbed in the back!” is how the French foreign minister put it – and off the record you can imagine that the comments were even stronger. Hugh Schofield has been following the events and says there is nothing confected about French outrage. When it was part of the Soviet Union, Lithuania played host to stocks of nuclear missiles – huge ICBMs, which could have destroyed cities around the world. Back then, Lithuania's geography gave it great strategic importance. When it became fully independent in 1991, it found itself a rather small nation, of about three and a half million people, and with of lesser international interest. And yet, Lithuania has been rather punching above its weight lately - particularly in recent disputes with China and Belarus. On a recent visit to a small Lithuanian village, Sadakat Kadri, found relics of the country's past, with important lessons for the present. When the Spanish conquistadors first landed in the Americas they brought new and terrifying beasts with them – from ships' rats to warhorses – not to mention lethal human diseases. But there was one sort of creature the indigenous Americans DID recognise on the European ships: the dogs. Dogs had already been tamed and kept by humans all over the continent for thousands of years. And they're still there – maybe not the original breeds, but thriving wherever there are people. In fact, in Chile, Jane Chambers has found them hard to avoid… People who'd love a career in the arts end up doing other things to earn a living – just think of all those aspiring actors waiting tables in restaurants or would-be novelists working away in offices.

SPD-Kandidat Olaf Scholz und Grünen-Bewerberin Annalena Baerbock betonten Gemeinsamkeiten unter anderem bei der Erhöhung des Mindestlohns auf zwölf Euro. Baerbock warf Scholz aber auch ein "Weiter so" beim Klimaschutz vor. Unions-Kandidat Armin Laschet warnte erneut vor einer Koalition von SPD und Grünen mit der Linkspartei. In einer ersten Umfrage nach dem sogenannten Triell sah eine Mehrheit der Zuschauer Scholz als Gewinner. Kremlpartei gewinnt Duma-Wahl in Russland Bei der Parlamentswahl in Russland ist die Partei von Präsident Wladimir Putin wie erwartet stärkste Kraft geworden, hat aber zugleich einen Dämpfer hinnehmen müssen. Nach Auszählung von rund der Hälfte der Stimmen liegt die Kremlpartei Geeintes Russland bei etwa 46 Prozent. Das sind rund acht Prozentpunkte weniger als bei der vorangegangenen Wahl 2016. Ob die Partei eine absolute Mehrheit in der Staatsduma erreicht, hängt von der Zahl der Direktmandate ab. Die Opposition um Kremlgegner Alexej Nawalny, der seit Anfang des Jahres im Gefängnis sitzt, war bei der Wahl chancenlos. Tote Migranten an der Grenze zwischen Polen und Belarus In Polen sind nahe der Grenze zu Belarus drei Menschen tot aufgefunden worden. Die Personen hätten versucht, illegal einzureisen, teilte der polnische Ministerpräsident Mateusz Morawiecki auf Facebook mit. Auf belarussischer Seite sei zudem eine tote Frau entdeckt worden. Bei ihr soll es sich um eine Irakerin handeln. Die Hintergründe der Todesfälle sind noch unklar. Die Europäische Union beschuldigt den belarussischen Machthaber Alexander Lukaschenko, Flüchtlinge aus Krisenregionen gezielt an die EU-Außengrenze zu bringen. Massenabschiebungen aus den USA nach Haiti US-Grenzbeamte haben über das Wochenende 3300 überwiegend haitanische Migranten aus einem behelfsmäßigen Lager am Rio Grande in Texas in andere Orte verlegt. Ziel sei, in dieser Woche die insgesamt fast 12.700 Migranten "so schnell wie möglich abzufertigen", sagte der Chef der US-Grenzpatrouille, Raul Ortiz, im Grenzort Del Rio. Die US-Behörden kündigten tägliche Rückführungsflüge an. In dem Lager unter der Brücke, die Ciudad Acuna in Mexiko und Del Rio in Texas verbindet, halten sich vor allem Haitianer auf, die vor Armut, Kriminalität und Naturkatastrophen aus ihrer Heimat geflohen sind. Trudeau muss um Wiederwahl bangen In Kanada sind an diesem Montag rund 25 Millionen Menschen aufgerufen, ein neues Parlament zu wählen. Premierminister Justin Trudeau, der die Wahl wegen vermeintlich guter Chancen um zwei Jahre vorgezogen hatte, muss um seine Wiederwahl bangen. Laut Umfragen könnte es ein Kopf-an-Kopf-Rennen zwischen seiner liberalen Partei und den Konservativen geben. Trudeau ist seit 2015 Regierungschef in Kanada. Er wurde bei seinem Amtsantritt als Erneuerer gefeiert. Später ließ die Popularität des 49-Jährigen etwas nach. Seit zwei Jahren führt er nur noch eine Minderheitsregierung an. Evakuierungen nach Vulkanausbruch auf Kanareninsel La Palma Auf der spanischen Kanareninsel La Palma ist erstmals seit 50 Jahren wieder ein Vulkan ausgebrochen.

EU partners are making a fuss over the war games between Russia and Belarus, even though they have been practicing much larger war games on Russia's borders explicitly aimed at war with the Eurasian power. Also, disenchanted warmongers in Europe are frustrated at the US pullout from Afghanistan, and are pushing for an independent EU army to carry out imperialist wars throughout the world.Dr. Colin Campbell, a Washington, DC, news correspondent, joins us to discuss voting. In furtherance of a probe of the 2020 elections, the GOP-led Pennsylvania State Senate has approved subpoenas for a wide range of data and personal information on voters.

Bachelet argues that "AI technologies can have negative, even catastrophic, effects if they are used without sufficient regard to how they affect people's human rights."Dan Lazare, investigative journalist and author of "America's Undeclared War," joins us to discuss American-European relations. A Strategic Culture article examines the relationship between the United States and Europe. The author reviews the refugee crisis in Europe and argues that the irresponsible regime change and colonialist policies of the US empire have created the flood of refugees.

The Texas Heartbeat Act outlaws abortions after about six weeks of pregnancy, and it has many people upset about the restrictions on personal freedom. Russia aims to recover the glory of the Soviet Empire. One state it is very close to re-assimilating is the former Soviet Republic of Belarus, which is moving closer to a full-blown merger with Russia. As America has been hit by climatic disasters, including Hurricane Ida and catastrophic wildfires and droughts, the immediate reaction of the press and many politicians is that it's all evidence of climate change. It's an unscientific explanation. Our Last Word is about an inspiring truth that people who advocate abortion overlook: the awesome value of human life.

Ob nun Armin Laschet für die CDU, Olaf Scholz für die SPD oder Annalena Baerbock für die Grünen ins Bundeskanzleramt einzieht – klar ist, dass der Klimaschutz ein zentrales Anliegen der kommenden vier Jahre sein muss. Aber auch wenn der Klimaschutz eines der Hauptthemen im Wahlkampf ist, fiel im Triell am Sonntagabend auf, dass keiner der Kandidaten die Gefahren durch die Klimakrise klar benannte.

The FBI has released the first classified documents related to 9/11 in accordance with orders from President Biden. Also, Iran's recent agreement with the IAEA has given some observers hope that further work can be done to convince the US to rejoin the JCPOA nuclear agreement. Gerald Horne, professor of history at the University of Houston, author, historian, and researcher, joins us to discuss Chile's 9/11. Many people in the Global South are remembering their own version of a 9/11 attack. The US fostered a coup and facilitated the murder of the socialist leader of Chile in 1973, resulting in years of brutal torture and disappearance of left-leaning citizens and political leaders. Jim Kavanagh, writer at thepolemicist.net and Counter Punch, joins us to discuss North Korea. North Korea has tested a new long range cruise missile.

There is only one power Jair Bolsonaro thinks can remove him from power, and that is God - at least that's what Brazil's President, told his audience at a rally on Tuesday. He had called on people to come out and support him at events across the country - and come out they did, though not perhaps the million he had hoped would attend. Mr Bolsonaro clearly wanted to demonstrate that he still has voter pulling power, what with his poll ratings tumbling ahead of elections next year. Many blame him for the huge toll from Covid, a disease the President famously once dismissed as "the sniffles." Now, there are more than half a million Brazilians dead from coronavirus, yet he remains unapologetic. Tuesday's rally saw the President on full throttle, railing against the Supreme Court, which is currently investigating him in response to various allegations - the judges, he said, were communists. Watching all this in Sao Paolo was Andrew Downie. When you hear that a country has declared a state of emergency, you might wonder what kind of calamity has befallen it – a natural disaster perhaps, or invasion by a foreign army. Poland declared a state of emergency this week, but not for any of these reasons. Rather it was a fear that thousands of refugees and illegal immigrants are about to come pouring across the country's border from next door Belarus. Hundreds have arrived already - most it seems originally from Afghanistan and Iraq. Belarus's President Aleksander Lukashenko, stands accused of encouraging these people to cross from his country into Poland – as a way of provoking the Polish government. Meanwhile, caught in the middle, are the new arrivals themselves, many trapped in no-man's land on the Belarus-Polish border, as Adam Easton explains. It was “farewell Mutti” from German MPs this week – “Mutti” being the German word for “mum,” and the nickname given to the country's chancellor, Angela Merkel. She made her final speech to the country's Parliament, two weeks before Germany holds national elections. The result of that contest is still very hard to predict, with polls showing the different political parties yoyo-ing up and down in popularity. However, there is one outcome which is certain: Chancellor Merkel will no longer be Chancellor – she will stand down at the end of the process, after nearly sixteen years in power. She was famously Germany's first female leader , and also the first from the formerly communist East Germany … and yet, not all these labels are quite as straightforward as they seem, according to Damien McGuiness. The attacks of September 11th twenty years ago marked the beginning of what was called the “Global War on Terror.” This was conducted in many countries and in different ways – western countries fearing they may be targeted, just as New York's Twin Towers and the Pentagon had been. And it was fought against countries accused of harbouring terrorists, most notably Afghanistan. With US troops pulling out of Afghanistan last month, there's no sign of that “War on Terror” abating. One place that it continues to be fought with particular ferocity is in Africa – from Tunisia in the north, which has seen horrific bomb and gun attacks on civilians, to Mozambique in the continent's southeast, where a relatively new Islamist insurgency has cost many lives. Catherine Byaruhanga has been to many of these hot-spots, and reflects on how Africa has fared since 9-11.

Das habe der Staatschef in einem Telefongespräch seinem chinesichen Amtskollegen Xi Jinping mitgeteilt, teilte das Weiße Haus mit. Aus Peking hieß es, das Gespräch sei "offen und tiefgehend" gewesen, allerdings habe die China-Politik der USA bereits zu "ernsthaften Schwierigkeiten" geführt. US-Regierung weitet Regelungen zur Impfpflicht dramatisch aus Die US-Regierung will die Corona-Pandemie mit Hilfe von Anordnungen zur Impfpflicht eindämmen. Neue Regelungen zur Corona-Impfung sollen für fast 100 Millionen Beschäftigte der Privatwirtschaft und des Gesundheitswesens gelten. Auch für alle Angestellten der Bundesregierung sowie Zulieferer verschärft die Regierung von Präsident Joe Biden die Impfvorschriften. Zuvor hatte das Weiße Haus bereits bestätigt, dass in Kürze für alle Mitarbeiter der Bundesregierung eine Impfpflicht gelten wird. Damit reagiert Biden auf die Impfkampagne, die trotz vieler Anreize nur sehr langsam Fortschritte macht. Russland und Belarus rücken auch wirtschaftlich enger aneinander Russlands Präsident Wladimir Putin und sein belarussischer Kollege Alexander Lukaschenko haben eine engere wirtschaftliche Beziehung ihrer Länder vereinbart. Nach einem Treffen im Moskauer Kreml sagte Putin, Russland und Belarus werde künftig eine vereinheitlichte "makroökonomische Politik" einen. Es seien 28 Programme für die engere ökonomische Kooperation ausgearbeitet worden. So werde bis Ende 2023 ein einheitlicher Gasmarkt entstehen. Die Beschlüsse sind Teil der Umsetzung eines Abkommens von 1999 über einen "Unionsstaat". Eine politische Integration habe man nicht erörtert, so Putin. US-Justizministerium verklagt Texas wegen Abtreibungsgesetz Das US-Justizministerium verklagt nach dem Inkrafttreten eines extrem strengen Abtreibungsgesetzes den Bundesstaat Texas. "Das Gesetz ist nach der langjährigen Rechtsprechung des Obersten Gerichtshofs eindeutig verfassungswidrig", sagte Justizminister Merrick Garland. Es beinhalte eine "beispiellose Regelung", die Privatpersonen zu " Kopfgeldjägern" mache. Das texanische Gesetz untersagt die meisten Schwangerschaftsabbrüche. Das sogenannte Herzschlag-Gesetz verbietet Abtreibungen, sobald der Herzschlag des Fötus festgestellt wurde. Das kann in der sechsten Schwangerschaftswoche der Fall sein. Außenminister Maas würdigt 30-jähriges Bestehen des Weimarer Dreiecks Kurz vor einem Treffen mit den Kollegen aus Frankreich und Polen hat Außenminister Heiko Maas die Bedeutung des so genannten Weimarer Dreiecks für den Zusammenhalt in Europa gewürdigt. "Die Vision des Weimarer Dreiecks ist in 30 Jahren von einer Utopie beinahe zur Selbstverständlichkeit geworden", sagte Maas. Diese bestehe darin, "dass sich nach Jahrhunderten von Krieg und Feindschaft die drei großen Staaten Frankreich, Deutschland und Polen zusammentun, um gemeinsam die Zukunft Europas zu gestalten". Die Minister treffen sich in Weimar, um das 30-jährige Bestehen zu feiern.

When describing experiences, New York–based artist and author Maira Kalman almost always goes for the extremes: an instance can be at once stupid and smart, miserable and hopeful, sad and delighted. A bittersweet point of view forms the throughline of her work—which spans more than 30 books for adults and children, as well as performance, opera, film, and industrial and set design—and gives each project its distinct ability to encapsulate the reality of being human. Tragedy and beauty can, and will, she believes, appear out of nowhere. In both instances, it's what one does with it that determines how the event will impact their life. Kalman, 71, credits this sensibility to credits this sensibility to people and places of significance in her life, specifically to the early death of her husband, the celebrated graphic designer Tibor Kalman, and to her late mother, Sara Berman, in addition to her Jewish heritage and birthplace of Tel Aviv. In tandem with her practice, Kalman makes time to indulge in seemingly mundane activities, such as taking long walks, cleaning, and reading obituaries, which she sees as activators of life. Each gesture is a means for finding clarity in the midst of chaos.On this episode, Kalman talks with Andrew about observation as a creative act, the allure of books, the importance of not thinking, and performing daily rituals as a means for staying sane.

Stories From The Eastern West

Stanisław Lem was a science-fiction writer whose works, abilities and quirky sense of humor convinced Phillip K. Dick that he was too brilliant to exist and must have actually been a committee of people! Indeed his rare gift for blending philosophy with technology and action made him an instantaneously recognisable voice in the European sci-fi world and elevated him to the heights of popularity and critical acclaim. But Lem's life was far from a textbook success story. Throughout his life, he struggled with traumatic wartime memories, distorted identities, and the communist system. But somehow, he was able to turn all the hardships and obstacles into elements of the incredible universes he created in his novels. In this episode, our hosts Nitzan and Adam will try to unravel some of the most confusing mysteries surrounding Lem: why did he choose to abandon his pre-war identity? How on Earth did he foresee the Internet in the 1960s? Is it true that he learned English from a dictionary in a week? Like our show? Get our newsletter!

An der Übung im Süden des zentralasiatischen Landes nehmen nach Angaben des Verteidigungsministeriums Streitkräfte aus Russland, Kasachstan und Tadschikistan teil. Sie sollen bis Donnerstag die Abwehr terroristischer Bedrohungen trainieren. Organisiert wird das Manöver von der von Moskau dominierten Organisation des Vertrags über kollektive Sicherheit, in der sich sechs frühere Sowjetrepubliken zusammengeschlossen haben. Amnesty dokumentiert Folter an Syrien-Rückkehrern Syrische Geheimdienste haben nach Recherchen von Amnesty International Dutzende zurückgekehrte Flüchtlinge inhaftiert, gefoltert oder verschwinden lassen. In einem neuen Bericht dokumentiert die Organisation schwerste Menschenrechtsverletzungen an 66 Rückkehrern, darunter 13 Kinder. Neben sexualisierter Gewalt und anderen Misshandlungen habe es auch fünf Todesfälle gegeben, heißt es in dem Report. Die erschütternden Aussagen der Betroffenen seien ein Beleg dafür, dass Syrien kein sicherer Ort sei, erklärte Markus N. Beeko, der Generalsekretär von Amnesty in Deutschland. Kremlgegner befürchten Betrug bei Duma-Wahl Knapp zwei Wochen vor der Parlamentswahl in Russland hat die Opposition vor massiven Manipulationen bei online abgegebenen Stimmen gewarnt. Er erwarte einen "kolossalen Betrug", erklärte ein Vertrauter des inhaftierten Kremlkritikers Alexej Nawalny. Die Möglichkeit zum Online-Voting in einigen Regionen Russlands besteht erstmals. Die Medienaufsichtsbehörde blockierte derweil eine weitere Internetseite Nawalnys. Sie hatte Nutzer dabei unterstützt, jene Kandidaten zu wählen, die die größten Chancen auf einen Sieg gegen Kandidaten der Partei "Geeintes Russland" von Präsident Wladmir Putin haben. Parlament in Polen segnet Notstand ab Das polnische Parlament hat die Verhängung des Notstands im Grenzgebiet zu Belarus bewilligt. Die Mehrheit der Abgeordneten stimmte gegen einen Antrag der Opposition, die Maßnahme aufzuheben. Die Regierung in Warschau hatte den Notstand angesichts tausender illegaler Grenzübertritte von Migranten aus dem Nahen Osten beantragt. Demnach ist nur noch Anwohnern der Zugang zu einem drei Kilometer breiten Streifen im Grenzgebiet gestattet. Polen geht davon aus, dass Belarus als Vergeltung für EU-Sanktionsbeschlüsse gezielt Migranten an die gemeinsame Grenze schleust. Kuba startet große Impfkampagne für Kleinkinder Als erstes Land der Erde hat Kuba damit begonnen, auch Kleinkinder regulär gegen das Coronavirus zu impfen. Zwei- bis Elfjährige können nun die in dem Karibikstaat entwickelten Vakzine Abdala und Soberana erhalten. Sie werden von der Weltgesundheitsorganisation allerdings nicht anerkannt. Wegen der Pandemie waren Kubas Schulen seit März 2020 die meiste Zeit geschlossen. Ab Oktober sollen sie schrittweise wieder geöffnet werden, wenn bis dahin alle für eine Corona-Impfung in Frage kommenden Kinder und Jugendliche ihre Impfspritze bekommen haben. Vereinte Nationen fürchten um Schulbildung von Flüchtlingskindern Vielen minderjährigen Flüchtlingen entgeht laut einer UN-Studie eine Schulbildung über die Grundschule hinaus. In 40 Ländern lag die Einschulungsrate laut dem Report des Flüchtlingshilfswerks UNHCR in der Sekundarstufe 2019/2020 bei nur 34 Prozent. Eine Hochschule besuchten lediglich fünf Prozent. Heranwachsende mit geringer Schulbildung würden oft in die Kinderarbeit gezwungen, infolge der Corona-Pandemie werde sich die Bilanz noch verschlechtern, hieß es weiter. Das UNHCR appellierte an die Staatengemeinschaft, das Recht auch der Flüchtlinge auf eine Sekundarschulbildung sicherzustellen.
