Cuba wishes Fernando Lugo a speedy recovery

The First Secretary of the party and President of the Republic, Miguel Díaz-Canel Bemúdez, sent via Twitter his “best wishes for the recovery of former President and friend Fernando Lugo” from the recent stroke. He hugged him “from Matanzas where we confirmed the end of the fire in the industrial area”. Cables show the former Paraguayan President remains hospitalized in intensive care. (Telesur)

Ukraine attacks sites near nuclear power plants

Ukrainian forces again attacked sites adjacent to the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, the largest in Europe. Member of the Main Council of the province’s Military-Civic Administration Vladimir Rogov reported on Telegram that there had been five attacks on the plant and another five on a nearby fire station. Russia’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations, Vasili Nebenzia, stated that a catastrophe would harm Russia, Belarus, Moldova, Bulgaria and Romania. (RT)

India renounces the dollar in trade with Russia

Indian companies are no longer using the dollar when buying Russian resources as avoiding the US currency reduces the risk of violating Western sanctions against the Eurasian giant. This connection is mutually beneficial as it allows New Delhi to acquire large amounts of resources at a lower price and Moscow has a reliable buyer of fossil fuels unaffected by Western sanctions.
