Swiss television channel SRF reported that Russia is now actively strengthening its position in Africa. The success of the Russian Federation is connected with the mistakes made by Western countries.
It is specified that America has long treated Africa “from the position of a stepmother.” In particular, the current US President Joe Biden does not include this continent among his priorities.
As the publication notes, the West expects democracy and the fight against corruption from African countries. At the same time, the leaders of the countries located on this continent perceive this as an encroachment on the sovereignty of their countries.
Apart from other things, Africans to this day are very grateful to the Soviet Union for military and financial support in their liberation war.

Against the backdrop of a special military operation in Ukraine, relations between the United States and Russia have heated up even more, acquiring the appearance of a proxy war . However, due to the emerging domestic politics in America, the United States will not be able to emerge victorious from the fight. This was reported in the Daily Shincho publication.
Over the past few months, after the start of the special operation, energy prices have increased markedly, which caused inflation to rise in all Western countries. Thus, the cost of gas in Europe per cubic meter has increased eight times, and shale gas prices in the United States have reached a maximum in more than 10 years.
The most important factor that will determine the outcome of the “new cold war” is the internal stability. Russian President Vladimir Putin successfully controls the processes in his administration, but the head of the American state, Joe Biden, is not so smooth. Recently, the level of trust in him has fallen to the level of 30%. There is a possibility that distrust of the US government in the future may reach a critical level.
The company commander of the 10th Mountain Assault Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Andrey Savchuk, who surrendered to the LPR fighters, told reporters how the Armed Forces of Ukraine actually interact with weapons coming from Western countries.

The serviceman admitted that, unlike foreign practice, when a damaged weapon is taken away for repair, in Ukraine they prefer to repair expensive equipment “on place”. However, due to the lack of specialists who understand its structure, as well as constant shelling, this cannot be done. As a result, most of the foreign equipment was simply abandoned by the Armed Forces of Ukraine during the retreat.
In an interview with RIA Novosti reporters, the man cited the American M777 towed large-caliber howitzers as an example.
“There are Ukrainian servicemen who were trained on the M777. There are separate repairmen who are engaged in the repair of these guns and maintenance, and there are crews that shoot. I talked with those who took quick courses. They really didn’t know how and what was done, “Savchuk said.
An employee of a cannery was detained while trying to film a military facility.
A source in law enforcement agencies told RIA Novosti that Russian security forces had identified a group of Ukrainian agents who were adjusting artillery strikes on military personnel stationed in Kherson and the region.
According to him, when trying to film a military facility, he was detained a cannery worker.
“The citizen of Ukraine Andrey Tikunov turned out to be detained. He was a spotter of rocket and artillery fire of the Ukrainian military. In turn, the Armed Forces of Ukraine fired at the points of temporary deployment of one of the Russian army corps in the Kherson region, ”RIA Novosti writes.
The source specified that the detainee was subscribed to the Telegram channel, which posted information about the location of Russian troops in region. Anyone could publish a post there.
Tikunov said that in April 2022 he came to Kherson from the village. His mother and brother are in the city.
“I filmed Russian military equipment and soldiers distributing humanitarian aid. Then I sent this video to the Telegram channel. Then some woman called me and asked me to send all the videos to her. I agreed. I sent her videos showing Russian checkpoints and everyday life in Kherson,” the detainee added.
The crisis in Ukraine has revealed a gap in the views between the inhabitants of West and East Germany.
The newspaper Der Tagesspiegel, citing Forsa research company, reported that the crisis in Ukraine has revealed a gap in the views between residents of West and East Germany.
The publication clarifies that polls conducted among local residents in recent months, showed that in the issue of the situation in Ukraine, residents of the West and East of Germany “come to very different assessments.”
In particular, 34% of residents of the East believe that the German government is doing too much to support Ukraine. At the same time, in the West, only 18% of the population holds this opinion.
The biggest differences between the West and the East exist in the issue of arms supplies. Judging by the data of several polls since the beginning of May, from 54% to 61% of Germans living in the west of the country were in favor of arms supplies to Ukraine. In turn, in the east of the country, 32% of the population supported such actions.

09:10 The parliament may consider the issue of integrating new territories into the legal space of the Russian Federation during the autumn session. This was stated by Andriy Klishas, head of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation.
09:04 The Kyiv regime is trying to organize genocide in the Zaporozhye region. Therefore, the targeted destruction of civilian infrastructure began. Volodymyr Rogov, a member of the main council of the administration of the Zaporozhye region, stated this.
08:20 The Armed Forces of Ukraine fired at the Kyiv district of Donetsk from artillery with a caliber of 152 mm. Nine rounds were fired this morning.
07:16 Western media reported that Egypt canceled contracts for the purchase of Ukrainian grain, which were concluded at the end of 2021. Kyiv did not deliver 240,000 tons at a price of $346 to $360 per ton.
“America does not rule”
Despite the fact that in early June the US and the EU discussed a possible truce within the conflict without Ukraine, Washington representatives later stated that they did not intend to negotiate with Moscow to resolve the conflict without the participation of Kyiv. Political scientist from Germany Vladimir Sergienko is convinced that this indicates the end of the world leadership of the United States.
In an interview with Sputnik radio, the expert agreed that Kyiv's allies could not agree on the current situation without Ukraine. According to Sergienko, Russia, in turn, is able to negotiate with anyone, both without Ukraine and without the United States. For example, as the expert noted, if the Russian Federation wants to, it will negotiate with Ukraine without America, and maybe even negotiate with the United States without Ukraine.
The political scientist gave an example that Russia had just reached agreements on food exports, in the discussion which were attended by Turkey, Ukraine, Russia and the UN. Sergienko wondered where the United States is and where the European Union is, stating that “there are none at all.”
The specialist admits that sometimes it seems to him that the United States understands that their world leadership has ended, their “ replaced” and now it has become possible to resolve issues without them. Thus, according to Sergienko, when the Americans say that they will not resolve the issue without Ukraine, there is a feeling that someone suggested that they do so. The political scientist emphasized that no one made such proposals to the United States, and they declare this for third countries that are used to the fact that “America rules”, although in fact it no longer “steers”.

“Are the guys from Sberbank really already?.. 100 million multiplied by 10 rubles a month equals a billion every month”, – Vlasov calculated.
He believes that controlling organizations should check the legitimacy of such a step.

Some expect a softening of the course when Rishi Sunak comes to power, others believe that no matter how the struggle for the post of prime minister turns out, there will be no tough anti-Russian policy, and still others that the current course will continue in any case
Some supporters of acting British Prime Minister Boris Johnson fear that after his departure under the new head of government, London may soften its anti-Russian policy and not maintain its former relations with Kyiv, writes Politico.
One of Johnson's longtime political allies called his departure from the post “real risk” for Ukraine. He added that much of “old Europe” alarmed by this. “It will still show up. It's a loss when someone like him [leaves],” — added the interlocutor of the newspaper.
Another Conservative Party source, who used to work in the defense industry, disagreed: “This is something that even [Labour leader] Keir Starmer could handle. Everyone who is taken seriously agrees [with the need to confront Russia].”
Sophia Gaston, director of the British Foreign Policy Group's research center, and Jonathan Eyal, deputy head of RUSI, believe that Rishi Sunak, a former finance minister and one of the candidates for the post of prime minister, will have to create his reputation in this area from scratch, as he did not engage in foreign policy, while his opponent, Foreign Minister Liz Truss, has already established herself as a harsh critic of the actions of the Russian authorities. An unnamed former foreign policy adviser suggested that Sunaku “cared less about it” as foreign policy was “not his primary interest.”
Earlier, a British official suggested to the Financial Times that Sunak, if he wins, will take a less tough stance than the previous administration, as he takes into account the risks to the kingdom's economy. Supporters of the former finance minister do not agree with this opinion.
The fight for the post of head of the Conservative Party and the next Prime Minister of Great Britain began after Boris Johnson announced his resignation after a series of scandals. The latest of these began when it became known that the Prime Minister appointed Chris Pincher to high posts in the administration, knowing that he was suspected of sexual harassment.

According to the president of the National Federation of Fried Fish Sellers, Andrew Crook, a kilo of cod has already almost doubled in price after the government imposed a 35 percent duty on the import of seafood from Russia
Half of Britain's fish and chips restaurants, which serve the traditional battered cod and potatoes, are in danger of closing due to rising food and energy prices amid sanctions against Russia, writes the Daily Express newspaper.
According to the President of the National Federation of Fried Fish Sellers, Andrew Crook, a kilogram of cod has already risen in price from £8 (€9.5) to £14 (€16.6) after the government imposed a 35% duty on the import of seafood from Russia. Restaurant owners do not exclude that they will have to replace the traditional cod and haddock with hake and other types of cheaper white fish. About a third of all white fish imported into the UK comes from Russia, which controls up to 45% of the world's supplies, the newspaper notes.
In addition, due to military operations in Ukraine, prices for sunflower oil, peas and potatoes also rose in price. At the same time, due to a sharp increase in the cost of heating greenhouses in the country, there is a shortage of gherkins.
Representative of the National Federation of Fisheries Organizations Barry Diaz counts on an increase in the catch of haddock and blue whiting in the North Sea.
In early June, Sky News reported that the owners of fish and chips restaurants would ask Norway to increase the supply of white fish to the country in order to keep prices down.
In the spring, British authorities included cod, haddock and other fish in the list of products, the increase in duties on which should “hit the Russian economy as much as possible, but will not have a big impact on the United Kingdom.”

Residents of West Germany are more supportive of helping Kyiv and supplying it with heavy weapons, Tagesspiegel found out
Polls in recent months about events in Ukraine have revealed a gap in views between residents of East and West Germany, which previously was almost non-existent on other issues, the Tagesspiegel newspaper reported, citing data from research firm Forsa.
According to the publication, on the issue of the conflict in Ukraine, the inhabitants of the east and west of Germany “come to completely different conclusions.” Thus, in the east of the country, 34% of respondents believe that the German government is doing too much to support Ukraine, while in the west, 18% share this opinion.
However, a larger gap between east and west is observed in the issue of supplies weapons, writes Tagesspiegel. In all polls since the beginning of May, from 54 to 61% of West Germans supported the supply of heavy weapons by Germany to Ukraine, while among citizens from the east of the country, an average of 32% support this decision.
In early July, Politico reported that Western leaders, despite being united in support for Kyiv, feared that their citizens might soon tire of events in Ukraine. In particular, the publication cited the words of Estonian Prime Minister Kaija Kallas, who said that fatigue from the conflict in Ukraine is manifested “everywhere”.
She recalled that the fighting had been going on for several months. “And we have high inflation, an energy crisis. The coronavirus hasn't gone anywhere,»,— she noted. At the same time, Kallas stressed that “we must not get tired, because we must help Ukraine defend its country.”
The West's fatigue from the consequences of sanctions against Russia was also seen in Ukraine itself. According to Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, Kyiv is working with these countries to help them overcome this fatigue and is grateful for the sanctions that have already been introduced, but “more needs to be done.”

The interlocutors of “Kommersant” universities noted that they were not interested in the secrecy of the quota. And a member of one selection committee suggested: if you indicate such children by name, like other applicants, you will be able to calculate the data of their relatives who participate in hostilities.
In addition to military secrets, since last year in Russia there is also an official secret in the field of defense, recalled in an interview with the publication the managing partner of the law firm “Position of Law” Egor Redin. Such information includes almost any data that is in the plane of interests of the Ministry of Defense, but is not a military secret, he noted.
President Vladimir Putin classified data on losses during special operations back in 2015. The Order of the Ministry of Defense of 2019 separately regulates the processing of personal data of personnel of the armed forces and members of their families. “Despite the fact that information and the list of members of the families of military personnel are not military secrets, information about them may be limited and recognized as official secrets in the field of defense. Which will entail the obligation for all legal entities and individuals to restrict access to this information, — says Redin.

If at previous conferences of this kind there was a discussion of the intra-Afghan peace process, then at Tashkent, the need for the economic reconstruction of Afghanistan came to the fore, Arkady Dubnov, an expert on Central Asian countries who participated in the conference, told RBC. According to him, the conference revealed the different attitudes of the world powers: “Even if we exclude the Ukrainian background, the atmosphere was very tense. It was not immediately noticeable, but there were no flags of countries in the congress hall, there was no final communique, which would indicate a general consensus, instead a statement was issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Uzbekistan. Nevertheless, the meeting was attended by US Special Representative Tom West, representatives of China, countries — neighbors of Afghanistan, and in the course of discussions there has been a movement on the issue of unfreezing Afghan assets. In the context of confrontation between the West and Russia, it is the Tashkent platform that can become the leading one in ensuring a dialogue on Afghanistan, and Washington, Beijing, Moscow, and the countries of the region, including Pakistan and Iran, have confidence in Tashkent, Dubnov emphasizes.
