400 foreign fighters remain trapped in Mariupol, where Kiev forces have refused an offer to surrender
Some 6,824 foreign mercenaries from 63 countries came to Ukraine to fight for Volodymyr Zelensky’s government, the Russian Defense Ministry stated on Sunday. Of these, 1,035 have been “destroyed,” while several thousand remain. Four hundred foreign fighters are holed up in Mariupol, where nationalist forces, including the neo-Nazi fighters, have refused to surrender.
The most numerous group of foreign fighters (1,717) arrived from Poland, while around 1,500 came from the US, Canada and Romania. Up to 300 people each came from the UK and Georgia, while 193 arrived from the Turkish-controlled areas of Syria.
Ukraine is ready to fight for its land for ten years, the country's president Volodymyr Zelensky said in an interview with CNN.
"We want to liberate our country, to take back what belongs to us. We may be fighting with the Russian Federation for 10 years to take back what is ours. We may choose this path," Zelensky said.
He urged the West to speed up arms deliveries to Ukraine. "We need the equipment today or tomorrow, not within two or three months," Zelensky explained.
Also, Zelensky's economic adviser Oleg Ustenko said in a televised comment on Sunday that Kiev has asked the Group of Seven (G7) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for $50 billion in financial assistance. He added that Ukraine has been also considering requesting a Special Drawing Rights loan from the IMF. According to Ustenko, Ukraine is currently losing about $7 billion a month, which adds up to roughly $50 billion over a six-month period.
Eight years ago this week, Kiev kicked off its ‘anti-terrorist operation’ in Donbass. The fiercest battles of the war were fought between 2014 and 2015. After that, the civil conflict turned into a war of position, but troops and civilians alike continued to die in both Donetsk and Lugansk. The war claimed the lives of over 13,000 people.
6 April 2014: Seizure of the Ukrainian Security Service Building in Lugansk
This event would mark a turning point of the ‘Russian Spring’ – the widespread pro-Russian unrest in Ukraine which followed the February 2014 Western-backed coup d’état in Kiev. Fledgling militia forces in Lugansk seized the Ukrainian Security Service building in the city, arming themselves en masse with weapons from its large armoury.
On Sunday, Marine Le Pen’s bid for the French presidency took a hit when European Union investigators accused her and her father of embezzling €620,000 (£513,000 & $670,000) for her political party, National Rally. In a week, Le Pen will face off against Emmanuel Macron for the presidency.
From 2004 to 2017, Le Pen, during her time as a Member of the European Parliament, is accused of illegally redirecting €137,000 of EU funds into her party's coffers.
Le Pen has also been under investigation for “breach of trust” and “misuse of public funds.” She allegedly used EU funds to pay for a personal bodyguard.
Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action Robert Habeck confirmed Russian assessments that Germany’s immediate cutoff of that country’s gas would provoke unrest in heart of that European leader.
He revealed in an interview that “An immediate embargo on [Russian natural] gas would threaten social peace in Germany”, though such a scenario is indeed seriously being considered due to the immense pressure being put upon the EU by its American overlords as of late.
Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky has boasted that “all of the countries of the world” should begin preparing for a massive nuclear war that will likely wipe out humanity.
In a preview for an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Zelensky said that people should not be afraid of nuclear war – just ready.
On Thursday, CIA Director Bill Burns warned that the CIA is monitoring for the possibility of Russia using nukes “very intently.”
“The director of the CIA warned that he’s worried Putin might use a tactical nuclear weapon in this fight. Are you worried?” Tapper asked Zelensky.
MOSCOW (Sputnik) - Kiev ordered the Ukrainian neo-Nazi battalion Azov to shoot those who choose to lay down their arms to the Russian military at the Azovstal plant in Mariupol, the Russian Defence Ministry Igor Konashenkov said on Sunday.

Money manager Michael Pento returns to our program with a big warning -- the prediction he made last year is coming true:
He forecasted that, beginning in Q2 2022, we will start hurdling towards a recession as well as one heck of a bear market correction.
And he believes that script is now set to play out before our eyes.
He foresees a progression from today's stagflation to disinflation and then to outright deflation over the coming year.

Cargo backlogs in Shanghai a precursor to global port congestion as COVID crisis drags on
Concern is growing that the spread of COVID cases and city lockdowns in China will have massive downstream effects for global supply chains that could dwarf previous disruptions since the start of the pandemic.
Last May, the huge Yantian container terminal at the Port of Shenzhen throttled down to 30% of normal productivity for a month to stamp out a handful of positive cases there. Hundreds of thousands of shipments that couldn’t enter the port accumulated in factories and warehouses, and many vessels skipped the port to avoid waiting seven days or more at anchor. It took weeks after the port reopened to clear the cargo backlog. The effects cascaded to the U.S. and Europe, resulting in port traffic jams, transit times triple the norm and missed retail deliveries for the holidays.

The unearthed studies, published in 2012 and 2013, follow Fauci’s National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) supporting “killer” bat coronavirus research at the Wuhan Institute of Virology. The Chinese Communist Party-run lab is believed by many to be the source of COVID-19 given its links to the military and controversial gain-of-function research.

While the United States government has not issued a federal digital vaccine pass, a national standard has nevertheless emerged. To date, 21 states, the District of Columbia and Puerto Rico offer accessibility to the SMART Health Card, a verifiable digital proof of vaccination developed through the Vaccination Credential Initiative (VCI), a global coalition of public and private stakeholders including Microsoft, Salesforce, Oracle, the Mayo Clinic and other health and tech heavyweights.
And very soon, at least four more states will be rolling out access to SMART Health Cards. “We’ve seen a notable uptick in states that have officially launched public portals where individuals can get verifiable vaccination credentials in the form of SMART Health Cards with a QR code,” says Dr. Brian Anderson, co-founder of the VCI and chief digital health physician at MITRE.

“Earlier, we presented a chart explaining the coordination of work at the biological laboratories and research institutes in Ukraine by the United States. One of its components was the Science and Technology Center in Ukraine (STCU) – an institution which appears, at first glance, to be a privately-owned organization that has nothing to do with the Pentagon,” Igor Kirillov, the head of Russia’s Radiation, Chemical and Biological Protection Troops, said in a briefing on Thursday.
In fact, the Russian military revealed, this institution has been directly involved in the creation of biological weaponry.
