Posted in: Europe prepares for a winter without Russian gas See in context

Donbas was a war started by Russian separatists.

The war which started in April 2014 between Russia (through proxies of Donetsk and Luhansk “people's republics”) and Ukraine has driven up to two million people out of the region. They fled in two directions: east, across the border into the Russian Federation, and west, into inner regions of Ukraine.

If Putin supports a separatist area in Donbas why did he not do the same in Chechnya? 17,000 killed.

yeah, rewrite the history !!!

2014, Donbass republic declared their independence from Ukraine, Ukraine started bombing Dombass supported by nato

1999, Kosovo decleared their indepencede from Serbia, nato bombed Serbia

lol

So those hard hitting sanctions on Russia are actually making Russia richer while hurting European consumers and industry?

Whose brilliant idea was this?

welcome to the political genius in Bruxelles

Won't visit Japan till Stoneage restrictions are removed and visitors are treated with respect.

I keep hearing Japanese people talking about how foreigners are going to bring coronavirus in. The irony is that the tourists are the ones who are probably more at risk off catching it off the local population.

based on what ?

Posted in: Former Prime Minister Abe dies after being shot while campaigning in Nara See in context

Doctor says it was from the front - all the reporting was wrong.

you can see from the pictures, but if you see the video the explosion after the first shot is from the left back of where Abe was, it was not in front in fact he didn't realize immediately while talking, if the assassin was in front of him he could have seen him immediately

so or the doctors are lying or what we saw in the videos is not how Abe really died...

I'm only stunned that security was so lax.

same for me, after the first shot we can see Abe for almost 30 seconds still standing and talking while anyone from the body guards or police put him down, what they are paid for ??

Posted in: 85.6% back Japan's sanctions on Russia over invasion in Ukraine: poll See in context

You're right -- they didn't mention opposition to banning imports of crab meat for kani-tours, so now people here can stuff their faces with crab while civilians in Ukraine are being shelled, women raped and murdered, and hospitalized and shelters being targeted. You're right, Rodney, they aren't saying enough.

smith-san, you forgot 10,000 civilians killed by ukranian forces from 2014 to 2022.... I'm sure you wanted to write that but something happened and you forgot

Posted in: Ukraine says Russia stepping up shelling of residential areas See in context

The classic 'other-guy' line from a thug caught doing a crime. Someone else did it, Russia has long done the same thing in Syria, and Putin's media pushed the other-guy defense there, too. At this point Putin claiming his invasion can be stopped with some form of i'f', might be believed by those as insane as he has shown to be.

lol

Russia cleaned Syria from Isis, what movie did you see sir ???

And just another day of Putin-adoration from our far-right friends...evidently their dictator-love knows no bounds...

Yesterday they admitted he is not only their hero, but "their good Lord" also... If Trump heard that, he'd turn from orange to red with envy...

One can only imagine if they had been around seventy years ago what praise they'd be singing for America's enemies during WWII...

the only far right thing here is the Azov battalion on the national guard of ukraine

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Azov_Battalion

In 2014, the regiment gained notoriety after allegations emerged of torture and war crimes as well as neo-Nazi sympathies and usage of associated symbols by the regiment itself, as seen in their logo featuring the Wolfsangel, one of the original symbols used by the 2nd SS Panzer Division Das Reich.

IJA never invaded Russian soil. Soviet was the invader ignoring not only non-aggression pact but also Potsdam declaration by detaining disarmed surrenders into slave labor camp for years after war ended.

JAPAN picked her when she started winning. I was watching her for two years before she won anything. Never heard a peep out of any Japanese person. Not my co-workers or friends. Why should she have to change for them?

they started caring about her cause she choosed japanese passport (in order to play Davis Cup and going to Olympic games).

I speak japanese better than her, enough said... (and my japanese is a little more than basic)

She was the one who turned on the olympic flame, she didn't deserve at all.

And of course, she supports blm, shame of her

Posted in: Man dies in Japan after receiving dose of recalled Moderna vaccine See in context

The truth is vaccine at this stage is still experimental, it takes 3 years of study to be approved.

Currently who gets a shot just makes part of this experimental part.

Posted in: Half of Japan's population has received at least 1 dose of COVID-19 vaccine See in context

Maybe you've not heard, but there's a hell of a lot more people in hospital or dead around the world due to covid.

excuse me, can you provide me with some data ?

cause if I check online I just see that less than 4,5 million people on planet Earth died for Corona, are those numbers "a hell of lot people" ? not considering that 7,6 Billion, not million, people are living on planet Earth.

do the math to see the 0,00...% of people died by the virus

Get vaccinated people.

no thanks

Wow. That is nice!

Very big progress!

Hopefully end of the year we reach 80% and can start to go back to our normal life.

which normal life ? Already Delta variant infects who got a shot, then in Autumn they are already talking about Lamba variant, this story will never end, human beings becoming like a PC where you have to update your antivirus (take a vaccin) every year

Stop this "let's return to normal life" thing, we will never return like 2019 or before
