Putin pulls out of deal to supply grain from Ukraine - risking mass starvation in the Third World - after 'inventing story' that the British Navy blew up the Nord Stream gas pipeline and attacked Russian ships off Crimea today with suicide drones

The Ministry of Defence today accused the Russian president of fabricating stories to 'detract from the disastrous handling of the illegal invasion of Ukraine', adding that the Kremlin is 'peddling false claims of an epic scale' after massive explosions rocked a key Crimean port. The attacks saw Russia end the 'grain corridor' in retaliation after claiming that the ships that were targeted by Ukraine forces were involved in the deal to allow grain exports. But Russia's decision to end the deal comes amid fears that Putin has been searching for an excuse to pull out and plunge third world countries into famine as part of efforts to ramp up his faltering invasion. The country has also recently criticised the deal, saying its own grain exports have suffered due to Western sanctions. Meanwhile, the MoD today said: 'To detract from their disastrous handling of the illegal invasion of Ukraine, the Russian Ministry of Defence is resorting to peddling false claims of an epic scale. This invented story, says more about arguments going on inside the Russian Government than it does about the west.'

Netherlands issued 91 waivers to sanctions against Russia

The Dutch government has issued 91 waivers from sanctions against Russia since the country invaded Ukraine late in February, RTL Nieuws reports after talking to the Ministries. The ministries shielded the names of the companies involved, the value of transactions which were exempted, and the business sectors concerned, RTL Nieuws reported.

The information was “company-sensitive,” according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. The Ministries of Foreign Affairs, Economic Affairs, Finance, Infrastructure, and Education are allowed to grant exemptions to sanctions to “allow a degree of flexibility in specific cases,” the spokesperson affirmed.

In April, the European Union banned ships sailing under the Russian flag from European ports. The Ministry of Infrastructure and Water Management issued waivers so 34 ships could access Dutch ports, for example, because they carried important cargo like aluminum and food.

“Diplomatic relations” was stated as the reason why the Ministry of Foreign Affairs granted one exemption, the broadcaster reported. In the isolated case, transactions which involved Russian banks majority held by the State were permitted to occur.

The Ministry of Finance granted 13 additional waivers related to frozen assets or goods that fall under the sanctions regime.

The Ministry for Climate and Energy, which falls under Economic Affairs, issued 25 waivers for Dutch organizations to still get energy from former Gazprom companies. The waivers help 150 companies and organizations, including municipalities, schools, and water boards, the Ministry said to the broadcaster.

The Ministry of Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, which falls under Foreign Affairs, issued 18 waivers to 13 organizations on “humanitarian grounds” for cooperation between the EU and Russia on “purely civilian matters.” Foreign Affairs issued one waiver so a company could receive another payment from Russia.

Harry and Meghan will be honored with humanitarian award at lavish New York gala - for their 'heroic' stance against 'structural RACISM' of royal family, US politician Robert F Kennedy's daughter reveals

Robert F. Kennedy's daughter has revealed she'll honor Prince Harry and Meghan for their 'heroic' stance against the 'structural racism' of the royal family at a NYC gala in her father's honor. Kerry Kennedy, one of RFK and Ethel Kennedy's 11 children and the president of the foundation, says that the Duke and Duchess of Sussex have challenged the royal family 's 'power structure.' She now plans to hand the couple a gong recognizing their achievements at the Ripple of Hope Gala in New York on December 6, with spots at their table going for up to $1 million. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky will also be handed an award. Kennedy, the ex-wife of disgraced New York Governor Andrew Cuomo , told The Telegraph: 'They went to the oldest institution in UK history and told them what they were doing wrong, that they couldn't have structural racism within the institution; that they could not maintain a misunderstanding about mental health.' Meghan, who is biracial, claimed to Oprah Winfrey last year that an unidentified member of the royal family expressed concern about the skin tone of her son Archie while she was pregnant with him. Kennedy's remarks could deepen the wedge between the Sussexes and the royal family.

There seems to be a ramping up of attacks on the British monarchy and its royal family from American liberal elites of late. These even come from as high a position as the White House, with Joe Biden making unprecedented remarks last year. Anti-British attitudes unfortunately pervade American high society, particularly in the government and academia, and the hostility is being made increasingly bare.

I've only recently seen some of this attitude over here in the states, I wonder what the root cause of this anti-British ideology is...

I want to gag whenever I see articles about these two. There is nothing worse than pampered, rich people whining about how bad they have it. Give me a break!

It gets worse, now Alec Baldwin is involved...

Wait - this is a joke, right? DUI defendant Kerry Kennedy gets scandal-engulfed Alec Baldwin to give hypocritical beta-royal Meghan Markle... a human rights award? Please make it stop!

(Excerpts)

Well, Meghan Markle did once compare herself to Nelson Mandela. The Duchess of Despair and hapless Prince Harry will be among this year's recipients of the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights Ripple of Hope Award, recognizing their work 'to protect and advance equity, justice, and human rights.'

The award – named for RFK's iconic 'Ripple of Hope' speech delivered in Cape Town, South Africa at the height of apartheid – recognizes 'moral courage'. The bravery to speak truth to power.

When you hear that, who doesn't think: Oh right, Harry and Meghan!

'They went to the oldest institution in UK history and told them what they were doing wrong,' said RFK Human Rights President Kerry Kennedy, removing all doubt that she has despoiled her late father's legacy and stripped this honor of any real meaning. 'That they couldn't have structural racism within the institution . . . I think they have been heroic in taking this step.'
________________

Incredibly, Harry and Meghan will be honored at the RFK gala alongside Ukrainian president Volodymyr Zelensky. Two of these honorees are not like the other, am I right?

And it gets better: Hosting this year's event, with tickets starting at $2,500 and going all the way up to $250,000 — basically, the equivalent of a down payment on a nice 6-bedroom house— is none other than Alec Baldwin.

Yes, the man who accidentally shot and killed his coworker and has since expressed zero guilt — 'Someone is responsible,' he told ABC's George Stephanopoulos last December, 'and I can't say who that is, but I know it's not me' — has been tapped to emcee a human rights event.


This is a value system only the ultra-left could abide. It's an episode of 'South Park,' an Onion headline, a Bizarro-world event.

Zelensky aside, it's more the Olympics of Victimhood than the vanguard of human rights activism.

Yet it's to be expected from Kerry Kennedy, a woman for whom self-awareness is a foreign concept. She has spent her tenure grinding Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights (terrible name, by the way) into meaningless virtue-signaling. She spends her time chasing after celebrities and high-level donors hardly synonymous with human rights.

To wit: other honorees this December are Frank Baker, head of private equity firm Siris and recent purchaser of a $32 million Palm Beach mansion; Bank of America CEO Brian Moynihan and billionaire Michael Polsky, CEO of renewable energy company Invenergy, which last year sued Worth County, Iowa, in an attempt to force the company's wind projects on the area.

First it was kids with BDSM dolls. Then a shoot featuring SCOTUS child porn docs. Now ANOTHER sinister twist in scandal plaguing Balenciaga: A prominently placed book about artist whose works include naked, castrated toddlers

More photographs from an axed Balenciaga campaign are being questioned today over the prominence of a book which celebrates a Belgian artist whose work includes depictions of castrated toddlers. Two photos from the brand's now canceled Spring '23 ad campaign feature French actress Isabelle Huppert posing in a Manhattan office with a stack of books behind her. Among the books is one that celebrates the Belgian painter Michael Borremans. Borremans' work is varied but frequently features children. His 2017/2018 series, Fire from the Sun, shows a group of toddlers, some of them with blood staining their skin, in sinister composition. In some of the images, the toddlers appear castrated. Balenciaga has not commented on the Borremans book or how it made it into its Spring '23 campaign. There are other distinct similarities between Borremans' work and some of Balenciaga's past designs - namely Kim's look at the 2021 Met Gala, where she appeared with black fabric covering her face.

Russian businessman Vyacheslav Taran, 53, (main with his wife Olga, inset right with his family) died after the helicopter plunged to the ground near the resort town of Villefranche-sur-Mer after taking off from Lausanne in Switzerland. Mystery has shrouded his death, as the crash (top right) occurred during good weather - and after another passenger reportedly cancelled last minute. Taran is the third cryptocurrency entrepreneur to die unexpectedly in the past few weeks. Tiantian Kullander, 30, died 'in his sleep' last week , while fellow crypto millionaire Nikolai Mushegian, 29, drowned on a Puerto Rico beach after tweeting that he feared the CIA and Mossad were going to murder him.
