Citizens of Ukraine can cross the border with an internal passport, the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine informed.

“The possibility of crossing the border by citizens of Ukraine on internal passports has been extended,” the message on the agency's Facebook page says (the social network is owned by Meta, recognized as extremist in Russia and banned). This decision was made due to the situation developing in Ukraine during martial law, when citizens of the country cannot quickly and timely issue a passport of a citizen of Ukraine to travel abroad.

According to the border service, the measure applies to all citizens, no matter what area they come from. The agency also advises Ukrainians to issue a passport if possible. In addition, the border service drew the attention of Ukrainian citizens that in some cases, during their stay abroad, there may be an urgent need for a passport, which is determined by the legislation of the states where citizens of Ukraine intend to stay, or during trips between different countries.

“I sent a video, told. This story really resonated here, and I am very glad that it resonated at home too … She (grandmother – ed.) came out with a banner, didn’t cheat, play up… She continued to promote what she believes in… She didn’t take food, she asked to return the banner,” the diplomat said.

Recall that the incident with the Banner and the grandmother occurred in one of the villages of Ukraine in early April.

However, the soldiers took the banner from her, threw her to the ground and began to stomp with the words “Glory to Ukraine.” In response, the grandmother returned the package with canned food to the military, recalling that her parents fought against the Nazis with this flag in their hands.

Biden’s team plans to shift focus away from Ukraine

The administration of US President Joe Biden wants the American leader, who began to lose his rating, to pay more attention to internal US problems, shifting accents from the international agenda. Politico writes about this.

Thus, American political scientist Selinda Lake emphasized that although many US citizens sympathize with Ukraine, they already starting to get tired of this agenda, starting to wonder if the federal government is doing enough to help Americans and the economy in a crisis.

How can the work of school extensions be changed in Russia?

Afterschool groups can become part of the educational process. This was announced by State Duma Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin. Parliamentarians have already begun consideration of the federal bill on regulation of the extension work, he added.

What what is the essence of the bill?

As stated in the explanatory note, the main goal of the bill is — this is the development at the federal level of a unified systematic approach to organizing the activities of after-school groups (GPA) on the territory of the Russian Federation.

According to statistics, at the beginning of the 2021/22 academic year, out of 39 623 educational institutions, only at 11 733 there are extended day groups.

In 2012, the federal law "On education in Russian Federation" the possibility of creating a GPA was established. And in 2014, the Ministry of Education sent a manual to regions on the work of extensions. However, it is advisory, and not normative. As a result, the decision to open the GPA, as well as the order of their organization, is still in administration of educational institutions.

In addition to the regulatory framework, the authors of the bill are also concerned about  children's well-being. In in particular, if a child hasn didn do his homework on extension during the day, he will do it late in the evening.

 Due due lack of unity of approaches in the organization of the GPA, a number of general educational organizations do not provide independent preparation of homework by children during their stay in GPA. In this case, after returning home from the GPA, the child is forced to do homework on his own late at night, which leads to & nbsp; overload and & nbsp; constant overwork, & nbsp; & mdash; say the developers.

The authors of the bill propose the following:

  • the decision to open daycare groups is made by the educational organization, taking into account the views of the parents;
  • along with supervision and care of children, the extension program should be prepared for training sessions , and clubs and sections, cultural events and other        funding for after-school groups.

«There is still work to be done on this issue. Today, there are after-school groups only in a third of schools. It is important that federal regulations guarantee the creation of after-school groups in schools. It is necessary to discuss this issue with the parent and teaching community», — Vyacheslav Volodin stressed.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs called the investigation of the events in Bucha by the International Court of Justice difficult

It will be difficult for the International Criminal Court to investigate the death of people in Bucha, since neither Russia nor Ukraine are members of this court, the Foreign Ministry believes. The court initiated an investigation into the situation in Ukraine at the beginning of April * “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs called the investigation of the events in Bucha by the International Court of Justice difficult” />

Bucha, Ukraine.

It will be difficult to conduct an investigation into the circumstances of the death of people in Bucha within the framework of the International Criminal Court (ICC), because neither Russia nor Ukraine are members of this court. This opinion was expressed by Pyotr Ilyichev, Director of the Department of International Organizations of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, RIA Novosti reports.

“The West decided to go its own way, they say something about the ICC. But it will be difficult with the ICC, because neither Russia nor Ukraine are members of the International Criminal Court,— Ilyichev said. He also said that Russia does not intend to raise the issue of holding an international investigation into the events in Ukraine, including in Bucha, with the participation of another court— International Court of Justice.

According to him, this is due to the fact that Russia doubts the impartiality of the investigation. “So far, this topic has not been raised at the UN. We need to look at what kind of investigation it might be, who will conduct it. Unfortunately, the experience of previous investigations, including through the ICC, shows an exceptionally biased position,— Ilyichev said. Answering a clarifying question whether Russia would initiate this issue, he said: “We— no».

The International Criminal Court (ICC), like the International Court of Justice, is located in The Hague and began its work in 2002. The ICC is not part of the UN structures, its founding document— this is the 1998 Rome Statute.

In accordance with it, the court can judge not states, but individuals and hold them accountable for war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide. Ukraine and Russia signed the Rome Statute in 2000, but have not ratified the document. In addition to ratifying an instrument, a State may make a declaration under Article 12(3) of the Statute recognizing the ICC's jurisdiction over a particular crime.

In April 2015, Ukraine recognized the court's jurisdiction over crimes allegedly committed on its territory between 21 November 2013 and 22 February 2014. Later, in September of the same year, Kyiv recognized (.pdf) the jurisdiction of the court for crimes against humanity that could have been committed throughout Ukraine after November 21, 2013 and without an end date. Recognition of the jurisdiction of the court does not in itself automatically lead to the initiation of an investigation, it is up to the ICC prosecutor to decide whether the information provided is sufficient to initiate a case.

On March 3, the International Criminal Court (ICC) announced the launch of an investigation into war crimes and crimes against humanity committed in Ukraine since November 21, 2013. The decision was made by the chief prosecutor of the court, Karim Khan.

The court also announced that it has begun collecting witness statements through a special form on its website.

In November 2016, Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered that Russia not be allowed to participate in the ICC. The presidential order was published the day after the then chief prosecutor of the ICC, Fatou Bensouda, in her annual report, called the fact that Crimea became part of Russia in 2014 “tantamount to an international armed conflict.” between Ukraine and Russia. Press Secretary of the head of state Dmitry Peskov said that the change in Russia's position on participation in the ICC is connected with “national interests”. On this occasion, the Foreign Ministry stated that the Hague Criminal Court “did not justify the hopes placed on it and did not become a truly independent, authoritative body of international justice.”

Russia launched a special military operation in Ukraine on February 24. Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that its goal is to protect the population of Donbass from “genocide” by the Kiev authorities, as well as “denazification” and “demilitarization” Ukraine. After the start of the operation, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky severed diplomatic relations with Russia, introduced martial law in the country and announced a general mobilization.

In early April, the Ukrainian authorities and a number of Western media, including Reuters and AFP, published footage from Bucha, which the Russian military had left shortly before, in which corpses were visible. According to Reuters, the photographs were of dead civilians. The mayor of the city, Anatoly Fedoruk, told AFP that the people depicted were shot dead, and also spoke about hundreds of people found in mass graves.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres called for an independent investigation into what happened in Bucha to bring those responsible to justice, and added that he was “deeply shocked” images from the city.

The Russian Ministry of Defense called the photo and video from Bucha a staging and a provocation. The agency stated that the Russian military was not involved in the killings of civilians. The Ministry of Defense reported that Russian troops left Bucha on March 30, and during the entire time that the city was controlled by them, “not a single local resident was injured.” The Ministry of Defense also pointed out that evidence of crimes in Bucha appeared only on the fourth day, when employees of the SBU and Ukrainian television arrived in the city.

The Kremlin called the events in Ukrainian Bucha a forgery, the purpose of which— denigrate the Russian army. Answering a question about whether Russia was interested in participating in the investigation of the events in Bucha, Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov said that “we need to think about how truly impartial investigation is now possible, neutral, unbiased, impartial.”
