Putin rules out rejoining Black Sea grain deal, despite famine fears – POLITICO

Russia will not rejoin a U.N.-brokered pact designed to prevent famines across the developing world as a result of the Kremlin's war in Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin said Thursday. Speaking at the Russia-Africa Economic and Humanitarian Forum in St. Petersburg, Putin again said his government would "refuse to extend" the Black Sea grain deal, which has allowed 32.9 million tons of agricultural products to leave Ukraine's blockaded ports and reach the global market. Putin, who accused Western nations of receiving the bulk of the deliveries and refusing to lift sanctions on Russia, insisted Moscow would instead move toward "a more just system of resource distribution." "In the coming three or four months we would be ready to provide to Burkina Faso, Zimbab...

On vacation in Dante’s Inferno – POLITICO

Press play to listen to this article Voiced by artificial intelligence. Antoaneta Roussi is a cybersecurity reporter at POLITICO. RIPOSTO, Italy — Stepping off the airplane in Sicily feels like entering a furnace. It's 43 degrees in the shade. We land in Trapani, 300 kilometers west of Catania, the original destination of our flight. We were rerouted because of a fire at the airport, an issue which will also occur some days later in Palermo. It's just the start of things to come. As the reality sinks in — that our vacation has taken us to the hottest corner of Europe, and we've been packed onto a cramped bus and transported across Sicily — the theme of our long-awaited Italian break emerges: Dante’s Inferno....

Putin can’t count on his friends in Italy anymore – POLITICO

Press play to listen to this article Voiced by artificial intelligence. When Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni walks into the Oval Office on Thursday, her transformation will be complete.  Gone is the ghoulish caricature of an extremist monster, sympathetic to Moscow, whose party was descended from fascists, and in her place stands a pragmatic conservative willing to do business with a grateful international mainstream.  For U.S. President Joe Biden and Ukraine’s backers in the West, securing Meloni’s long-term commitment to the war effort is vital: Italy will assume the leadership of the G7 next year, at what’s likely to be a critical time in the conflict.  Initially, the signs weren’t good. Before she ...

The 11 most embarrassing political resignations – POLITICO

Press play to listen to this article Voiced by artificial intelligence. It’s not every day that a pair of sunglasses causes your downfall. But that’s what happened to Bjørnar Moxnes, a Norwegian left-wing party leader who was caught on camera stealing a pair of luxury sunglasses from Oslo airport. “A lot of people have asked me how I could do something so stupid. I’ve asked myself that many times in recent weeks. I don’t have an adequate explanation,” Moxnes wrote on Facebook. In honor of Moxnes’ fall from grace, POLITICO brings you some of the most embarrassing resignations in European politics (and there were a lot to choose from). From sex scandals to misused government funds to petty theft, here are 11 of t...

Feijóo’s numbers don’t add up – POLITICO

Press play to listen to this article Voiced by artificial intelligence. MADRID — Alberto Núñez Feijóo may not want to admit it but his hope of being Spain’s next prime minister may have to be lowered. On Monday night, the leader of the center-right Popular Party, which won the most votes in last Sunday’s national election in Spain but fell short of securing a governing majority, was left without options to form a government after two key regional parties rejected his overtures. To become Spain’s prime minister, a candidate whose party has not secured a governing majority needs to either get the backing of 176 of the total 350 MPs in an initial vote in parliament or wait for a second round of voting to secure a...

Premi play per ascoltare questo articolo Doppiato dall'intelligenza artificiale. PARIGI — Libertà. Egalità. Ma soprattutto: sicurezza. Tutto ebbe inizio con Napoleone Bonaparte. Nel corso di due secoli, la Francia ha messo insieme a apparato di sorveglianza capace di intercettazione di comunicazioni private; conservazione dei dati sul traffico e sulla localizzazione fino a un anno; memorizzare le impronte digitali delle persone; e monitorando gran parte del territorio con telecamere. Questo sistema, che ha subito il respingimento da parte delle organizzazioni per i diritti digitali e Esperti delle Nazioni Unite, avrà il suo momento clou alle Olimpiadi estive di Parigi del 2024. A luglio del prossimo anno, la...
