March 14, 2015. Where is Vladimir? Read his activities from the news from the Kremlin feed below, or from Pravda. He has not been seen in public for 10 days, and I am hearing he may have had a stroke, or has cancer, or is hanging out with a possible newborn baby. Hm. The full range from life to death.
I hope he has gone to Ukraine and Crimea, and is privately working out how to remove Russian troops as soon as possible.

The Russian Federation

Countries invade because they want war, world domination, to save inhabitants, or they want stuff. Like oil and gas. Which one is Russia? I don't know but I am listening to them. Above and below.
Flag, map and edited information from Wikipedia.

Russia is the largest country in the world,  over 12 to 13% of land mass. It borders Norway, Finland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Georgia, Azebaijian, Kazakhstan, China, Mongolia, North Korea. Across the waters is Japan (the Sea of Okhotsk) and the USA (Bering Strait).

The Sarah Huckabee Sanders scam
Recently, the Online world was filled with right-wing "outrage" over the fact that Donald Trump's chief propagandist, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, had been asked to leave a small restaurant in Virginia due to the owner's disdain for Huckabee Sanders's often disingenuous defense of Trump's policies. Much of this outrage mirrored a theme I discussed in a recent Pravda.Report article, I Love Free Speech; I Hate Free Speech (June 5, 2018):  That people will vociferously support speech and/or actions that comport with their beliefs, and just as vociferously condemn speech and/or actions that don't. As many commentators pointed out, Huckabee Sanders had no compunction about praising a recent Supreme Court decision that allowed a private business to refuse service to a gay couple, and undoubtedly many of those now expressing "outrage" at her so-called "mistreatment" most likely applauded this decision as well.  And how many of these same commentators, through online contributions, raised almost a million dollars for the owners of an Indiana pizzeria after they announced they would not provide catering services for same-sex weddings (How To Get Rich in America, Pravda.Report, April 9, 2015).

Yulin, China: Where dogs are tortured to death and eaten
Yulin, China: Where dogs are tortured to death and eaten Any society which permits shocking acts of cruelty to animals is one without morals, without values, one of sub-human parasites. Reader discretion advised. I apologize to the many Chinese citizens fighting for animal rights and I apologize to the growing number of Chinese speaking out against this outrage. Hoping that more and more media outlets will take this story up, I am about to fire with both barrels. Reader discretion advised, this is very disturbing to write and probably more so to read.

Can the World Cup change the world?
Even though Russia is not a football-mad country, the Russians need the World Cup for many reasons. The most prestigious and the largest sports tournament in the world will make millions of people take a different look at Russia, writer and political scientist Akelsei Mukhin believes. "Many in Russia were very apprehensive of the World Cup, but it turns out that it's going very well, even though Russia is not a great football nation. Some say that the 2018 FIFA World Cup will be the most expensive in history. Will the World Cup change what the world says about Russia these days?" "We may go back to the Winter Olympics in Sochi. Many were saying that Russia was spending too much on those Games, that many sports facilities would be abandoned. Yet, time put everything in its place. The 2014 Winter Olympic Games made Sochi become a totally new city. It will help us grow new generations of athletes. This is a good investment in our future, in our people and infrastructure. One needs to invest a lot in infrastructure to be able to hold the World Cup. This is a major event that attracts a lot of tourists. The presentation of Russia in foreign media has been utterly negative recently. A distorted image of Russia was created - an evil and corrupt country. However, many foreign tourists who come to Russia for the games are stunned with what they can see here. This enormous exposure that the World Cup brings will play into our hands, because it will be harder for foreign media to lie about Russia afterwards. "The most recent "horror story" was the so-called Skripal case. Indeed, most of the British people are sure that it was the Russians who made that all happen. However, they are also concerned about the actions of the British authorities. The story had such a strong and aggressive start and a very vague ending. It appears that the British authorities have lashed themselves. British people want to know how such a thing could happen in their country, where, as it turns out, Russian special services feel at home. In the long run, the Skripal scandal has left a huge stain on the reputation of the British authorities and special services in the first place. In fact, there is no such case as the Skripal case. It has fallen apart. Sergei and Yulia Skripal are alive, which suggests that there was no nerve agent used." Also read: What do foreign fans visiting World Cup say about Russia?

USA tramples on human rights to protect Israel
The world shuddered when the United States announced its decision to pull out from the UN Human Rights Council. According to Nikki Haley, the US Ambassador to the United Nations,  "our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights."She criticized the UN Human Rights Council for "its chronic bias against Israel" and bluntly stated that the council, the purpose of which is to defend human rights, has such human rights abusers such as China, Cuba, Venezuela and the Democratic Republic of Congo. "The world's most inhumane regimes continue to escape scrutiny and the council continues politicising and scapegoating of countries with positive human rights records in an attempt to distract from the abusers in their ranks," she also said adding that the USA could leave 17 months ago, when the US administration changed. Haley said that the USA would continue supporting human rights outside the organisation and would consider joining it back when required reforms take place. It is worthy of note that the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva passed a resolution in May of this year calling for international investigation into the actions of the Israeli military against participants in mass protests in Gaza that began on March 30, 2018.According to Stephane Dujarric, the spokesperson for the United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres, the UN model in the field of human rights plays a very important role in the promotion and protection of human rights throughout the world.The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zayed Ra'ad al Hussein, was also disappointed with the latest move of the United States. "Disappointing if not really surprising news. Given the human rights situation in the modern world, the United States should have stepped up its efforts rather than leave," he said. EU officials believe that USA's pull out from the UN Human Rights Council may undermine the role of the USA as a campion of international democracy.  Contributors to the "Vneshpol" ("Foreign Policy") Telegram channel believe that the UN Human Rights Council was too much preoccupied with the criticism of Israel. "The HRC has been ruthlessly criticizing Israel all the time. Among its members, there were such "prominent human rights defenders" as like Cuba, Saudi Arabia , Pakistan, Azerbaijan and China. It came to a point when even UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan urged the HRC to think about some other problems. George W. Bush refused to join the HRC, but Obama accepted membership hoping to reform the council from within. The acceptance of the Democratic Republic of the Congo as a HRC member became the last straw. Therefore, if the USA's pullout from the HRC will lead to its reform, one may only welcome this move."

From where I stand: "We need men who will stand up for the rights of women and girls"
From where I stand: "We need men who will stand up for the rights of women and girls" E. Wilkins Nah is one of 15 public prosecutors at the frontlines of the fight against sexual and gender-based violence in post-conflict Liberia. By combining his legal experience with knowledge on survivor-centred response, he is working to end impunity and ensure justice for survivors. When I took over as County Attorney (Prosecutor) in Bong County, I had no understanding of how to deal with cases of rape or other cases on violence against women because I had never been trained in this area.

Russia improves Uran-9 combat robotic machine
Russia continues to improve its combat robot Uran-9. The robot that weighs ten tons was developed to storm various objects and fortified areas.After the expert analysis of the work of the machine during Syrian operations, Russian specialists decided to improve a number of parameters, such as control, mobility, firepower, surveillance and intelligence functions. For the time being, the robot can neither shoot nor move. The Uran-9 can "see" for a distance of 2 kilometres, which is not enough. Another nuance is the control of the machine. To be able to control the robotic machine remotely, one has to stay in the zone of visibility - this peculiarity distinguishes ground drones from unmanned aerial vehicles. To control an UAV, one can use satellite communication, which means that the operator can stay a hundred kilometres away. On the ground, however, there are many obstacles, such as buildings, to establish uninterrupted connection between the operator and the machine. Therefore, the machine will be useful most on flat surfaces, where the connection is of high quality. It is worthy of note that Uran-9 is equipped with a 30-millimeter gun, a large-caliber machine gun, anti-tank missiles and anti-aircraft missile system (Igla).
