The Daily Chronicles are snippets of the most important news across the world for this and each day as it rolls in – as such, this thread is non-structured with the latest news on top. Kindly feel free to also use it as an open thread. There are many comments in the previous Daily Chronicles and it is here for quick access.
Kindly give attention to the new Geopolitical Economy Hour from Michael Hudson and Radikha Desai. Not only is it super good but let’s support this effort! A lot of work goes into this, and I’m very happy to say that we are one of the first to receive the work!
Coming is the aftermath of CELAC. It is slow to write as most information is still in Spanish, but I hope to put it to bed today.
January 31 – Kadyrov from the Slavyangrad channel:
The Almighty is patient and strict in punishment, so know, Danish coward, that you will find the punishment that you so zealously seek.
As long as there are such miserable rootless individuals in the world who burn the Koran, insulting the feelings of a billion inhabitants of the Earth, we will not stop at the destruction of Satanists in Ukraine. Let’s go through all of Europe, purifying the peoples of the Old World from the abomination cursed by the Almighty.
Look, here they are – the values of the Western world, when a coward burns a sacred Book surrounded by policemen, fearing for his miserable little soul.
No courage, no pride, no honor, no respect. All the most disgusting qualities of a person can be seen in one guise of this provocateur who allegedly burned the Koran because of me. No, he was just looking for an excuse to do it again to provoke the Muslims.
I have a question for the authorities that gave permission to hold such actions: why do you, knowing full well that this is a provocation, followed by a fair reaction of caring Muslims, still allow this? In this case, when the provocateur is punished, do not forget that you are guilty of this, and not “Islamic terrorism”, which you are trying to justify yourself in the face of citizens every time. This is far from the case when it would be appropriate. It is not terrorists who shoot at a rabid dog, but orderlies.
The Danish geek “dedicated” this arson to me. I would forgive a lot in my address, but I will not forgive this act of a religious terrorist, just like one and a half billion Muslims of the world.
Yes, a religious terrorist. For me, such provocateurs are the real terrorists, from whom a healthy society needs to be freed.
January 31 –
Sergey Lavrov (https://t.me/dimsmirnov175/43374) – about the message delivered to him from Blinken by the Egyptian Foreign Minister:
We have always said that Russia is ready to listen to any serious proposal that aims to resolve the current situation in a comprehensive context and I will emphasize the word serious. Once again, we heard in this message that Russia must stop, Russia must leave, – and then everything will be fine. The second part of that call was not conveyed by Blinken, but this true U.S. and Western interest was laid out by NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg in South Korea. He said there that Russia must be defeated, and the West cannot allow Ukraine to lose, because that would be a defeat for the West and the whole world.
So he took the liberty to speak on behalf of all countries in the world. And further, he said, “That’s why NATO will realize its global responsibility.” In my opinion, everything is clear here, we are not talking about Ukraine at all. The Kiev regime is carrying out the will of the United States, whose main goal is to prevent any events on the international scene that would call into question U.S. hegemony in today’s world. So the message was incomplete, and I have now tried to add for Blinken what the U.S. is trying to achieve when it calls on Russia to stop and withdraw from Ukraine.
Note: I have and have had a draft writing looking specifically at Hot and Cold Running Rats. They are all over, all over the world, making threats and trying to make NATO ‘globally’ responsible and leaving little sneaky messages behind for Russia.

China is not quiet (and I hope the GT forgives me for quoting extensively)
Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Mao Ning Photo:fmprc.gov.cn
The US is the biggest instigator of the Ukraine crisis, but instead of reflecting on its behavior, it blames China over groundless suspicions, the Chinese foreign ministry said on Monday, refuting US’ accusations that Chinese companies may be providing non-lethal military and economic assistance to Russia. The FM stressed China won’t accept such groundless blackmail.
China always follows an objective and fair approach when it comes to the Ukraine crisis, stands for peace and will continue to play a constructive part in pushing for a political solution to the crisis, Chinese foreign ministry spokesperson Mao Ning said.
We will not sit on the sidelines, not to fuel to the fire or take advantage of it, Mao said.
The US is the initiator and the biggest instigator of the Ukraine crisis, continuing to send heavy and offensive weapons to Ukraine, which has intensified the conflict, Mao noted.
The US does not reflect on what it has done, on the contrary, it blames China over groundless suspicions. We do not accept such groundless blackmail, nor will we sit by and see the US unreasonably harm the legitimate rights and interests of Chinese enterprises, Mao said.
Ukraine and Western countries have recently agreed to discuss an increase in military aid including long-range missiles and warplanes. The danger of “another World War” in Europe is increasing, according to Chinese military experts, as a NATO senior military official said the US-led military bloc is ready for direct confrontation with Russia.
If the US sincerely hopes for an early end to the crisis and really cares about the lives and safety of the Ukrainian people, it should stop sending weapons and engaging in war profiteering, Mao said. The situation should be de-escalated as soon as possible in a responsible manner, to create an environment and conditions for peaceful negotiation, according to Mao.

⚡️ Shoigu may submit proposals to Putin in the very near future to change the Russian military doctrine.
As reported, in the very near future, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation will officially announce that Moscow will expand and change the list of reasons why the country can use tactical nuclear weapons.
“We are talking about the fact that the Russian Federation will be able to use nuclear weapons not only in the case of a “threat to the existence of the state” as a result of an enemy attack to the country. In particular, we may be talking about the fact that Russia will have the right to a tactical nuclear strike even if the enemy’s attack does not threaten the existence of the state, but was carried out either on an object of critical infrastructure, or on a state agency, or its result was great human casualties.” https://t.me/EurasianChoice/23991
That bit is bad news. I like the next news better …
Actor and director Ivan Okhlobystin announced (https://dzen.ru/okhlobystin) that Russian businessmen had promised to pay a reward of 10 million rubles ($200k) for every knocked out American Abrams tank.
“With undisguised pleasure, I hasten to inform you that some representatives of large Russian business have authorized me to announce that they are appointing a bonus of 10 million rubles for each knocked out Abrams.” https://t.me/EurasianChoice/23994

From MOD Russia
On 28 January, at about 7.30 a.m., the Ukrainian Armed Forces launched an intentional attack, using rocket-propelled projectiles of U.S.-manufactured HIMARS multiple-launch rocket system, on the building of district hospital in Novoaydar (Lugansk People’s Republic).
◽️ The healthcare facility of Novoaydar was the venue where civilian and military professionals had been providing medical aid to local population and servicemen for many months.
◽️ The impact of the rockets with high-explosive fragmentation warheads has resulted in killing 14 and injuring 24 patients and medical employees of the hospital.
◽️ All the victims are being provided with professional medical aid.
◽️ The intentional missile strike, launched at the obviously known operating civilian healthcare facility, is an undoubted heinous war crime of the Kiev regime.
◽️ All the accomplices will be found and brought to justice for planning and implementing this crime.

🇰🇵 (https://1drv.ms/u/s!AuHgV7BEqS3fyj2t0046T79FVzD8?e=U2XRQf) Kim Ye-jong’s full statement (http://kcna.kp/kp/article/q/60be08b71a5f20dab464edf99dcbe060.kcmsf);
The intrigues of the United States, which present a serious threat of war to the entire European continent and caused all sorts of alarms, are now moving beyond more dangerous limits.
The United States, pumping Ukraine with many weapons, “distinguished itself” in stimulating the continuation of unstable world events, and recently clarified its confrontational posture against Russia with an official statement on the supply of its battle tanks.
This is the nefarious nature of the US trying to achieve its hegemonic goal by further expanding a proxy war aimed at destroying Russia.
Without the US, the world will be brighter, safer and more peaceful than it is now.
It is the U.S. that is the main culprit that poses serious threats and challenges to Russia’s strategic security, bringing the situation in the region to a dangerous brink, as it is today.
I am deeply concerned about the behavior of the United States, leading to an escalation of the war by supplying Ukraine with military equipment for ground attack, and I strongly condemn this.
The United States and Western countries, which, completely ignoring Russia’s security concerns, are transferring military hardware to Ukraine for astronomical sums, destroying global peace and security in the region, have no right to condemn the right of a sovereign state to self-defense.
Now the United States is trying to use the military potentials of even its main satellites on the anti-Russian front, not to mention Western countries.
The battlefield in Ukraine is far from the desert of the Middle East, where American battle tanks roamed freely 20 years ago.
I have no doubt that any weaponry that the United States and the West take pride in will completely burn up and turn into scrap metal in front of the unwavering fighting spirit and power of the heroic army and people of Russia.
No matter how the imperialist coalition forces rave about, in no case can they break the heroic spirit of the army and the people of Russia, who have high patriotism, perseverance and steadfast spiritual strength.
We will always be in the same trench with the army and people of Russia, who have risen to fight to defend the dignity and honor of the state, the sovereignty and security of the country.

The LatAM countries are all refusing to hand over weapons to the US for use in the Ukraine. The latest is Brazil. Apparently Germany wanted to buy just under $5 million worth of shells for its Leopard 1 tanks. Germany could not guarantee to Brazil that these shells will not be sent on to Ukraine. Things got messy and Lula said no, we will not sell shells to you.

From RT channel – moves in the divided Koreas – Let us hope this time there is some reality:
South Korea Unveils Path to ‘Normalize’ Ties With Pyongyang
South Korea will use NGOs and international bodies to tilt Pyongyang towards the restart of dialogue, the country’s Unification Ministry said on Friday. It added that the ban on North Korean media may be eased as a goodwill gesture.
The ministry added it was considering allowing people to read the Rodong Sinmun – the leading North Korean newspaper – at designated spots, but online access would not be allowed.
“It is important for North Korea to come back to dialogue with sincerity,” the Unification Minister said. He added that, although Seoul has remained open to restart negotiations with Pyongyang, his government was not considering making a concrete offer to North Korea at the moment.

“German Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock has faced waves of criticism after saying at the Parliamentary Assembly of the Council of Europe (PACE) that Germany is at war with Russia. The comment led opposition politicians to question whether she is fit for the job. “A statement by Baerbock that Germany is at war with Russia shows that she is not suited for her job,” MP Sahra Wagenknecht, the former head of the Left Party in the Bundestag, tweeted on Friday. A foreign minister should be a “top diplomat” and “not act like an elephant in a China shop,” she added, accusing Baerbock of “trampling” on Germany’s reputation.” From RT and I’ll quote any RT information extensively as it is now widely suppressed in the ‘free west’.
It is astonishing. She said the quiet part out loud. But instead of understanding the issue, that Germany is in fact at war with Russia, they attack the messenger. No, I am not carrying water for Baerbock whatsoever, but she did say the quiet part out loud.
Re: “South Korea will use NGOs and international bodies to tilt Pyongyang towards…” 🤣🤣😂😘 that kinda gives the game away, a la Minsk time-wasters.. I don’t know whether to weep or laugh. S Korea, in same predicament as Poland, at least appears sane. It is torn between impulse to save… Read more »

The smell of fear is ‘visible’. (Yeah, I know it makes no sense).
Here is another one, where the smell of fear becomes visible, from John Helmer (I’m really not a fan) but this one makes sense.
Yes he is spot on. Alexander Mercouris at end of his broadcast yesterday parsed this “concession” by Blinken and the Blob. I agree it was a pro forma dissembling by the craziest faction to keep quiet the mildly-crazy faction.. iow, this entire issue appears an internal food fight with maneuvering… Read more »

Taking part of a quote from Dr. Martin Luther King’Jr.’s last speech, exactly a year before his political assassination, “the biggest purveyor of violence in the world today,” —[the Amewreckan government]

Politics make strange bedfellows. This is a segment from WarRoom, and I understand the antipathy some folks may have for this site.
But take a listen to this, just a few minutes long. Posobiec, who has Polish ancestry, paints a stunning picture.
Exactly, that is why I was so shocked and wrote what I wrote. This is an extremely visceral issue. If anything the Polish-American guy understates the gravity!

North Korea has been at war with the US since 1950. The Amewreckan government has been “non-agreement capable” with the government of the DPRK since then. There has been no peace treaty after the supposed cessation of the “Korean War” in 1953, because of the complete refusal of the Amewreckan… Read more »
