EU country - called for a truce in Ukraine
and the start of negotiations with Russia
November 28th, 9:34pm
The best solution to the situation in Ukraine will be a truce
and the start of peace talks. This statement was made on
behalf of Slovakia by the country's Foreign Minister Juraj
Blanar, arguing that there is no progress in the conflict,
while both sides are losing people.
"For us, and I am convinced that for the people on both sides
and for the alliances that are involved, the best thing is an
early truce, negotiations for peace and finding a solution,"
Blanard said, adding that even years of negotiations are
the better alternative ---- to taking people's lives.
According to the head of the Slovak Foreign Ministry, there is
no military solution to the situation in Ukraine, so there is
no progress in it, which causes the whole world to be
tired of this conflict.
"The conflict is neither moving forward nor backward… I
don't want to question, in any way, the decision of any
of the parties to supply weapons, but you can feel
this fatigue," explained Juraj Blanar.

Ukraine. According to political analyst, Dmitry
Zhuravlev, the authorities of these states
have run out of patience and physical

in pure PR --- in their favour."
Earlier, Krivonos said that Zelensky is not able to properly
manage Ukraine. In his opinion... the head of state "does

US Congressperson demanded
the termination of funding

The US authorities should immediately stop funding the
conflict in Ukraine - and focus on the security of their
own borders. This was announced on Tuesday by a
member of the US House of Representatives,
Marjorie Taylor Green.
"Our border is the worst national security crisis in the history
of the United States," the politician wrote on her page on
the social network X (formerly Twitter). "US border
security, should not be combined with financing
a lost war in Ukraine."
The congresswoman reminded, that Ukraine is not the 51st
US state. Therefore, the financing of the conflict there
should not be combined --- with national security
issues - otherwise it is "a slap in the face of
the Americans," said the member
Earlier, Bloomberg reported that the decision of the US
Congress on a new package of military assistance to
Ukraine may be delayed until 2024. According to the

In addition to the wife of the head of the GUR of the Ministry
of Defense of Ukraine, Kirill Budanov, several employees of
the department were poisoned with heavy metals.
Budanov himself, was not poisoned.
As the Ukrainian Pravda newspaper reported, citing a source
in the security bloc, Marianna Budanova and her husband's
employees were "most likely poisoned through food."

weighs little compared to the Gurovtsy. They developed
symptoms later and are "now being treated as well."
Earlier, Ukrainian media reported that Budanova was
hospitalized and is now completing a course of
treatment. Substances that are not used
either in everyday life or in military
affairs were found in her body ---

Iran Blasts Israeli Regime's Claims,
Says Space Programs in Full
Compliance With Int'l Law
November 28th, 10:47am (FNA)
Iran's Ambassador and Permanent Representative to the UN
Amir Saeed Iravani underlined that the Islamic Republic's
missile and space programs are fully peaceful and in
compliance with its legitimate rights under
the international law.
Iravani made the remarks in a Monday letter to Secretary
General of the United Nations Antonio Guterres and the
rotating president of the Security Council, Zhang Jun.
Iravani's letter - came in response to an earlier letter by the
Israeli envoy to the world body, claiming that Iran's launch
of the Noor-3 satellite using Qased (Messenger) Space
Launch Vehicle (SLV) on September 27, 2023 was in
violation of UN Security Council Resolution 2231.
“The claim in the letter is completely unfounded as Iran
has never taken any activity inconsistent with the
Security Council Resolution 2231,” the Iranian
"Iran has made it clear, time and again, that all activities
related to its missile and space programs --- are fully in
compliance with its legitimate rights under
international law," he added.
Iravani pointed out that moreover, Iran has consistently
maintained that its missile and space programs fall
outside the purview and competence of Security
Council Resolution 2231 (2015) and
The Iranian ambassador stressed that Iran has never done
any activities in contradiction to the UN Security Council
Resolution 2231 (2015).
The full text of the Iranian ambassador’s
letter to the UN ------ is as follows:
In the name of God, the most
Compassionate, the most
I am writing to you regarding the letter dated 21 November
2023 from the representative of the Israeli regime
addressed to the President of the Security
Council (S/2023/895), where it claimed
that the launch by Iran's Qased
Space Launch Vehicle (SLV)
on 27 September 2023, of
the Noor-3 satellite - into
orbit, was a violation of
UN Security Council
The claim in the letter is completely unfounded as Iran has
never taken any activity inconsistent with the Security
Council Resolution 2231(2015). Iran has made it
clear, time and again --- that all its activities
related to its missile and space programs
are fully in compliance with its legitimate
rights under international law. Moreover,
Iran has consistently maintained that
its missile and space programs fall
outside of the purview and
competence of Security
Council Resolution 2231
(2015) and its annexes.
The Israeli regime’s purpose of furthering such a baseless
claim is clear, and it is to divert attention from the urgent
issue currently demanding the international community's
focus: the heinous atrocity crimes committed by this
apartheid regime against the Palestinian people in
the Gaza Strip. Accusing Iran of destabilizing
activities in the region appears to be nothing
more than a desperate attempt by the Israeli
regime to evade accountability for its war
crimes, genocide, and crimes against
humanity that were committed and
are being committed in occupied
We urge the international community and, in particular, the
United Nations Security Council to hold the Israeli regime
accountable for these atrocities.
I should be grateful if you would circulate the present
letter -------- as a document of the Security Council.

assurances of my highest

Earlier, Ukrainian prisoners have already spoken about the
inhumane attitude of the command to them - and war
crimes. In particular, they talked about barrage

Russia, was developed by the British gunsmith of
American origin Hiram Stevens Maxim in 1883.
It became one of the founders of automatic weapons and
was widely used from the Anglo-Boer War in Africa to
the Civil War in Russia, where it showed its special
effectiveness - when mounted on a wheelbarrow.

According to him, Russian strategic bombers Tu-95MS and
Tu-160 with cruise missiles or ground-based systems can
easily destroy entire squadrons standing on the runways

such as the MiG-31K and Su-34M strike fighters, can
launch hypersonic Kinzhal missiles and destroy
entire air bases --- with the AFU's main F-16
aircraft, their pilots, and ground crews.
Bosnik also pointed out that US aircraft will not be safe in
the sky, and after their destruction, the Russian military
will be able to study them... and develop even more
advanced systems to counter Western fighters.
He added that because of the Russian MiG-31BM, Su-35S
and Su-57 aircraft... and modern anti-aircraft missile
systems, "the probability of survival of any other
foreign fighter in such conditions.... is
In Denmark, Kiev's pilots are being
