Currently, in Ukraine, there is no opposition and politicians challenging Volodymyr Zelensky as they are either in prison or abroad, according to the country’s former prime minister, Mykola Azarov. He also highlighted that Kiev would be forced to accept any agreement between Russia and the United States.

“There is no opposition in Ukraine now. [Pyotr] Poroshenko or [Yulia] Tymoshenko are not opposition. Their policy was no different from the current policy of the Kiev regime. The real opposition was eliminated. Some were killed, others are in prison, and some were forced to go abroad,” Azarov said in an interview with the newspaper Argumenty i Fakty published on June 24.

According to the former prime minister, the left-wing parties and opposition forces in Ukraine now do not exist.

“In addition, trade unions are absent, and there is strong persecution of the Church. The current conflict is often presented as a confrontation between Russia and Ukraine, but this is not true,” he added.

The Kremlin has accused the U.S. of 'killing Russian children' after a Ukrainian attack on occupied Crimea with long-range missiles supplied by Washington and said there will be 'consequences'.

Moscow has summoned the U.S. ambassador to issue a formal warning, while Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov issued a public statement slamming the U.S. for 'barbaric' strike on Sevastopol, a strategic port city on the Black Sea. 

'The involvement of the United States, the direct involvement, as a result of which Russian civilians are killed, cannot be without consequences,' said Peskov. 

'Time will tell what these will be.'

'You should ask my colleagues in Europe, and above all in Washington, the press secretaries, why their governments are killing Russian children. Just ask them this question.' the spokesman for Vladimir Putin said.

In a dramatic turn of events, Russia has pointed fingers at the United States, accusing them of bombing Crimea. This bold allegation has sparked international attention, highlighting a striking irony given Russia’s controversial annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014. Russia is claiming that at least four people are dead and over 100 injured.

The annexation of Crimea by Russia in 2014 was widely condemned by the international community as a blatant violation of Ukraine’s sovereignty. Despite protests and sanctions, Russia proceeded with what it termed a “reunification” of Crimea, citing historical and strategic reasons. This move was met with swift and stringent measures from Western nations, including the United States, which condemned Russia’s actions and imposed sanctions that continue to impact diplomatic relations to this day.

Fast forward to the present day, and Russia finds itself accusing the United States of bombing Crimea. This accusation, steeped in geopolitical tensions and historical animosities, underscores the complexities of global power dynamics. It is a stark reminder of the audacity involved in such accusations, especially considering Russia’s own contentious history in the region.

In the realm of international politics, accusations and counter-accusations are not uncommon. However, Russia’s accusation against the United States regarding Crimea’s bombing carries a unique weight given Crimea’s troubled past and ongoing international scrutiny. As the situation unfolds, it remains to be seen how this latest accusation will impact diplomatic relations and geopolitical stability in the region.

Democrats in the battleground state of Pennsylvania are running TV ads telling Republicans that Trump doesn’t want them to vote early this year.

The Democrat PAC, Pennsylvania Values, used out-of-context clips (cheap fakes) to make it sound like Trump is talking about the 2024 presidential election.

Senate Democrats are feeling exasperated by their inability to stamp out persistent speculation that party leaders have a plan B to replace President Biden atop the Democratic ticket due to concerns about his age and weak poll numbers.

They’re tired of hearing about the hand-wringing of Democratic voters and donors over Biden’s age and electability and sick of reading about Rube Goldberg-like schemes, some of them pushed by Republicans or conservative media, to shake up the Democratic ticket.  

One Democratic senator feigned putting a make-believe pistol to their temple when asked about the prospect of yanking Biden off the ticket before the Democratic National Convention in August or the general election in November.

The senator, who requested anonymity, said stories about replacing Biden on the ticket sound “juicy” but are nothing more than a sign that political pundits have “too much time on their hands.”

Former President Donald Trump demanded Monday that President Biden undergo a drug test before Thursday’s first presidential debate — days after predicting that his rival would be “jacked up” on the CNN stage.

“DRUG TEST FOR CROOKED JOE BIDEN??? I WOULD, ALSO, IMMEDIATELY AGREE TO ONE!!!” Trump, 78, wrote on Truth Social after he and his allies had repeatedly suggested that Biden, 81, will be medicated during the Atlanta forum.

Biden has been sequestered since last week at the Camp David presidential retreat in western Maryland, leading to dark suggestions from Republican circles about what the incumbent’s debate preparation may entail.

“There is no universe in which [Biden’s] not being medicated before the debate. If he wants to dispel that, he should offer to take a drug test, but we all know he won’t do that,” one Trump ally told The Post.

A federal appeals court ruled that a mandate under the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional, but it decided not to halt the requirement.

On June 21, a panel from the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit decided that the mandate requiring insurers to cover preventive services like cancer screenings and HIV prevention drugs is unconstitutional.

They argued that because the task force issuing these requirements wasn’t appointed by the president or confirmed by the Senate, the mandate lacks constitutional validity.

The Affordable Care Act, often referred to as Obamacare, mandates coverage for “preventive care” without specifying its definition. Instead, it requires coverage of preventive services and drugs that are rated A or B by the United States Preventive Services Task Force.

Joe Biden's attorney general, Merrick Garland, has been found in contempt of Congress for refusing to turn over evidence from the special counsel investigation that determined Biden illegally kept government records in his home and garage, but recommended against criminal charges.

The reason special counsel Robert Hur gave was Biden's "diminished" capacities, his failing memory where he could not recall when he was vice president.

But the U.S. Department of Justice, or DOJ, refused to take up the referral from Congress, so now a vote could be held in the House of Representatives as early as this week for another prosecution procedure, one that would have the House sergeant at arms arrest Garland and put him on trial before House members.

The growing problem of space debris isn't just one that plagues Earth's orbit. Several instances of space trash crashing back down to Earth have made recent headlines, and one family is requesting that NASA pay for the damages. 

The space agency has a claim on its hands after a chunk of space junk crashed through Alejandro Otero's seaside home in Naples, Florida. The incident occurred on March 8, as debris tore through the roof and two floors of his family home, nearly hitting his son, Otero said in a now-deleted post on X

NASA has since confirmed the debris came from a 2.9-ton pallet of used batteries jettisoned from the International Space Station in March of 2021; the structure was expected to burn up completely in Earth's atmosphere. Otero speculated as much in posts online following the incident, and voiced his expectation that the responsible parties be held accountable. "[The Otero family is] grateful that no one sustained physical injuries from this incident, but a 'near miss' situation such as this could have been catastrophic," said Mica Nguyen Worthy in a statement from the law firm representing the family.

CNN presidential debate moderator Jake Tapper’s show is at the center of a defamation suit brought by a consulting company which alleges that the network and one of its reporters lied about the company’s work.

The network’s defense: CNN did not intend to harm and its language was “opinion or ambiguous.”

Tapper is set to co-host the first presidential debate next Thursday which is being hosted by his network. The host has come under scrutiny from former President Donald Trump, who is set to participate in the debate, for his partiality— calling him “Fake [Jake] Tapper.”

But, as the well-known CNN personality gears up for that debate he also finds himself in the middle of a lawsuit against his employer by security consulting firm Nemex Enterprises and its owner Zachary Taylor, who worked to help evacuate Afghanis following the chaotic Taliban takeover of that country.

The two CNN anchors set to host Thursday’s first 2024 presidential debate have previously called Donald Trump’s first term a “national nightmare” and compared his language to that of Adolf Hitler.

“State of the Union” co-hosts Dana Bash and Jake Tapper — who have a long history of criticizing the former president and current presidential candidate — will be responsible for posing questions to both Trump and President Biden at the CNN forum set for 9 p.m. in Atlanta, Ga.

Tapper, the network’s lead Washington anchor, has called the 45th president a “desperate electoral loser” in the past, suggested Trump spread “Russian propaganda” — and has said that if re-elected, the former president will try to “kill democracy.

The case may not be as well known (yet), but CNN could be facing a defamation liability rivaling or exceeding the $787 million Fox News paid out to Dominion Voting Systems. NewsBusters recently reported on Florida’s First District Court of Appeals affirming that plaintiff Zachary Young could seek punitive damages, in addition to economic and emotional damages, from the Cable News Network in a civil trial after they allegedly defamed him regarding his work in getting people out of Afghanistan. The total could near or exceed $1 billion.

For that outcome to be remotely in the cards, Young needed to prove malice and according to the ruling, he’s done exactly that. “Young sufficiently proffered evidence of actual malice, express malice, and a level of conduct outrageous enough to open the door for him to seek punitive damages,” Judge L. Clayton Roberts wrote in the court’s ruling.

The court felt the high bars for actual and expressed malice were met because of internal CNN messages that were extremely vicious toward Young. Correspondent  Alex Marquardt, the “primary reporter” expressed in a message to a colleague that he wanted to “nail this Zachary Young mfucker” and thought the story would be Young’s “funeral.” On that declaration of wanting to “nail” Young, CNN editor Matthew Philips responded: “gonna hold you to that cowboy!”

Alongside Marquardt, CNN senior editor Fuzz Hogan, who’s a member of CNN’s internally lauded “Triad” of editorial, legal, and standards/practices oversight personnel, described Young as “a shit.”

A free comic book promoted by Marvel for Pride Month featured multiple messages about gender and sexuality while being targeted at children 13 years old and up.

As part of an initiative for inclusivity, Marvel sent out free issues of its "Marvel Voices" comic to distributors for Free Comic Book Day.

The gender and sexuality-driven issue was targeted at teens and also had dedicated pages regarding black and "indigenous" stories and creators.

After a Bollywood-themed Spider-Man and a female hero named Spider-Gwen, a glowing Spider-Man took on a rather interesting foe.

The ransomware group known as LockBit claimed to have hacked the Federal Reserve Bank and says it will release 33 terabytes of sensitive data on Tuesday.

In a post to the dark web this week, the criminal organization alleged that it had been in talks with the bank in order to secure a ransom in exchange for keeping the data private.

“33 terabytes of juicy banking information containing Americans’ banking secrets,” the group wrote. “You better hire another negotiator within 48 hours, and fire this clinical idiot who values Americans’ bank secrecy at $50,000.”

Hooters - known for its scantily-clad waitresses - is the latest restaurant chain to abruptly shutters locations.

Like other struggling chains such as Red Lobster, Hooters is blaming the rising cost of rent and food.

A raft of closures happened over the weekend, while others were in recent weeks. They include locations in Florida, Kentucky, Rhode Island, Texas and Virginia.  

The company is not thought to be in as dire financial situation as Red Lobster, which has filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy.

A top prosecutor who has taken on some of the nation's top political corruption cases dramatically apologized to Trump-appointed Judge Aileen Cannon as Jack Smith's team battled over a proposed gag order Monday.

David Harbach, who led cases against former North Carolina Sen. John Edwards and former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell issued the stunning statement inside Cannon's courtroom Monday, in a case where Trump critics complain she has repeatedly ruled against the government. 

'I just want to apologize about earlier,” Harbach said following a contentious courtroom exchange. “I didn’t mean to be unprofessional. I’m sorry about that.” 

It came after he appeared to bristle at questions from Cannon, a U.S. district judge in Florida, in response to her questions about the prosecution's claims of threats to law enforcement personnel and Trump's language about the FBI that fed into the government's request to modify his terms of release.

A scientist has unveiled a concept for a prison of the future that he has claimed would fast-track a criminal's release to minutes, instead of years or decades.

Called Cognify, the design would implant synthetic memories of a person's crime into their brain, but showing their victim's perspective. 

The system could feature a VR-like device that displays AI-generated footage of the offence, coupled with a brain implant that induces emotional states like remorse or regret - feelings some individuals may not produce on their own.

The concept, developed by Hashem Al-Ghaili, would ensure the long-term effects of the therapy session by making the memories permanent.

Webmaster addition: I see a huge potential for abuse of this system!

Webmaster addition: Just to be clear; the Supreme Court has not ruled on Trump's conviction. This ruling is from s different case with similar issues. However I think the Supreme Court should step in and rule the Trump conviction unconstitutional.

Some Wall Street banks, worried that landlords of vacant and struggling office buildings won’t be able to pay off their mortgages, have begun offloading their portfolios of commercial real estate loans hoping to cut their losses.

It’s an early but telling sign of the broader distress brewing in the commercial real estate market, which is hurting from the twin punches of high interest rates, which make it harder to refinance loans, and low occupancy rates for office buildings — an outcome of the pandemic.

Israel’s Supreme Court on Tuesday ruled unanimously that the military must begin drafting ultra-Orthodox men for compulsory service, a landmark decision that could lead to the collapse of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s governing coalition as Israel continues to wage war in Gaza.

The historic ruling effectively puts an end to a decades-old system that granted ultra-Orthodox men broad exemptions from military service while maintaining mandatory enlistment for the country’s secular Jewish majority. The arrangement, deemed discriminatory by critics, has created a deep chasm in Israel’s Jewish majority over who should shoulder the burden of protecting the country.

The court struck down a law that codified exemptions in 2017, but repeated court extensions and government delaying tactics over a replacement dragged out a resolution for years. The court ruled that in the absence of a law, Israel’s compulsory military service applies to the ultra-Orthodox like any other citizen.

NASA has delayed the return of two astronauts from the International Space Station (ISS) for the third time, raising concerns the crew could be 'stranded.'

Butch Wilmore and Suni Williams were initially scheduled for a nine-day stay, which  was pushed back twice this month and now sits at an undetermined date.

The extended stay is to allow more time for review of technical issues encountered by the capsule as it traveled to the ISS, which included thruster failures and leaking valves, Boeing said in a statement.

DailyMail.com spoke with several experts who said that NASA could be forced to launch a rescue mission, and could tap Elon Musk's SpaceX to carry it out.

Webmaster addition: How did Boeing go from being a leader in aviation to making such junk?

China has once again made spaceflight history as its lunar lander returns to Earth with the first rock samples from the far side of the moon.

The Chinese lunar probe Chang'e-6 touched down in China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region at 06:07 GMT (14:07 Beijing time) this morning. 

Chang'e-6 brought its precious cargo back to Earth after a months-long journey to the largely unexplored far side of the moon.

It returned with it up to 4.4 lbs (2kg) of rocky lunar regolith collected by drill from the moon's South Pole-Aitken basin.

Tucker Carlson has over 3.7 million followers on Instagram. On X, he has nearly 13 million followers. While his following on X is likely far more significant because it is the ostensibly less censorious platform where Carlson routinely uploads episodes of his new show, there may be another reason to account for the delta.

Ashton DeGroot, Blaze Media's social media content coordinator, observed Monday that following Carlson is no easy feat on the Meta platform.

A perfunctory search for Carlson failed to turn up his verified account. Instead, impersonators and fan accounts flooded the results. After multiple tries, it appeared clear that Carlson's verified account would only appear if his exact handle, @TuckerCarlson, was entered into the search bar.

Upon finding Carlson's account, DeGroot found that Instagram put up one last barrier to engagement, imploring prospective followers to reconsider.

The pop-up reads, "Are you sure you want to follow tuckercarlson?"
