Recent statements made by French President Emmanuel Macron and British Foreign Secretary David Cameron are part of an ongoing “verbal escalation” by Western officials, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday.

The organizers of the 2024 Paris Olympics denying Russian volunteers the right to serve at the upcoming Summer Games is outright discrimination, Russian Presidential Spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Thursday.

"It [the act of discrimination] is obvious, there's no other way to look at it," he told journalists in response to a question about whether Russian volunteers were being discriminated against.

The French threat to potentially deploy troops in Ukraine is necessary as a “strategic wake up call for my counterparts,” President Emmanuel Macron has claimed. He also repeated his assertion that Russia should not be allowed to win in the conflict.

The French leader reiterated his attempt to use a “strategic ambiguity” approach to the situation by maintaining that the option of deploying troops was on the table. He first made the suggestion after hosting an international meeting on Ukraine in February.

ince Joe Biden entered office, conflict and war have exploded around the world. Critics, including Donald Trump, claim this is because of Biden’s apparent weakness on the global stage.

Biden appears to be trying to repair his image by throwing billions at overseas conflicts. He wants Americans bankrolling Ukraine’s war with Russia—despite providing no plan on how to end the bloodshed.

There is a growing international chorus calling for Israel to be banned from this summer’s Olympic Games. Many say that as Russia and Belarus have been effectively banned for political reasons, Israel’s attempted genocide merits exclusion from the Olympics as well.
