Lebanon and Israel have signed a US-brokered deal that ends a dispute over gas-rich waters in the Mediterranean, paving the way for the development of energy resources
This is a good video by SmoothieX12. He picks up on what is important and stresses again that this ‘war’ is a war against the collective west.
Europe wants to seize, not freeze, Russian assets. Common thievery! They have to literally rewrite their laws to try and make thieving legal.
According to von der Leyen, the EU has created a task force that includes various international experts “not only to map out what has been frozen,” but also to see what the legal preconditions would be for seizing Russian assets and using them for the reconstruction of Ukraine.
“The will is there, but legally it is not trivial, there is still a lot of work to reach that goal,” she reiterated, noting that the EU adheres to the rule of law, and therefore this process has to be “legally sound.”
RT: West has remained dismissive. In a joint statement on Sunday, the foreign ministers of France, the UK, and US said they “reject Russia’s transparently false allegations that Ukraine is preparing to use a dirty bomb on its own territory.” NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg dismissed the allegations as “absurd.”
Please bear in mind that Russia has no need for dirty bombs and no reason to want to use such crude methods.

Oct.24 – A very popular war journalist Semyon Pegov from channel Wargonzo was wounded yesterday, luckily not terribly seriously. He must have kicked a petal mine.
Here is a photo of the boot Semyon Pegov was wearing at the moment of the explosion. As you can see, the sole remains intact: this means that Semyon did not step on the mine, but simply kicked it while running. As a result, most of the striking element missed the foot.
Otherwise, the consequences could have been much more serious. If a person stepped on the “petal,” most often he or she would lose a foot; in some cases the leg would be torn off all the way to the knee.
Nothing else can be added lol.

Russia Slams US Claims About Iranian Support For Drone Strikes In Ukraine
Washington has accused Tehran of “directly engaging on the ground in Crimea,” with US National Security Council spokesperson John Kirby claiming that Iran is providing drones, and training Russian troops to use them.
Russia’s Foreign Ministry has dismissed the allegations as groundless.
(And all the while Washington pours weapons into Ukraine – this is the rules-based international order).
I’m in two minds about this (from RT telegram)
Russia Urges UN To Prevent Ukraine’s ‘Terrible Provocation’
Russia has formally asked the United Nations Security Council to prevent Ukraine from destroying the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric dam in Kherson Region.
Such a disaster could result in the deaths of thousands of civilians, Moscow’s ambassador to the UN warned on Friday.
According to the envoy, most of the missiles are being launched from US-made High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).
Surely by now, Russia knows they will get nothing out of the UN? So, are they simply using the opportunity to advertise the matter?
