US training terrorists to target Russia – Moscow
60 militants at a base in Syria are being prepared for attacks on officials and security personnel, the Foreign Intelligence Service claimed

The US has turned to Islamist extremists to plan terrorist attacks in Russia and other ex-Soviet republics, Moscow’s Foreign Intelligence Service (SVR) said on Monday. A group is being trained at a base in Syria for the purpose, the agency claimed.

“The US military is actively recruiting militants from jihadist groups affiliated with Islamic State [IS, formerly ISIS] and Al-Qaeda to commit terrorist attacks in Russia and members of the Commonwealth of Independent States [CIS],” the SVR stated, citing “credible reports.”

Established after the collapse of the Soviet Union, the CIS incorporates some of its former republics, including Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

According to the SVR, the US has enlisted 60 terrorists who have already been active in the Middle East. They are undergoing training at the Al-Tanf American military base in Syria, where they are learning how to manufacture and use improvised explosive devices, it added.

“Particular attention is paid to planning attacks on well-protected facilities, including foreign diplomatic missions,” the agency stated. It added that Washington is aiming to “deploy the militants as part of small groups to the territory of Russia and the CIS states in near future.” They will then target “diplomats, public officials, law enforcement officers, and military personnel,” the SVR claimed.

“We see that US security agencies have lost all moral principles... Obsessed with the crazy idea of ‘bleeding Russia dry’, Washington strategists presume it is acceptable to directly use terrorists for their dirty purposes,” the agency said. It asserted that “such actions put Washington on a par with the largest international terrorist groups.”

In December, SVR Director Sergey Naryshkin claimed that the White House was pursuing policies to create an “instability belt along Russia’s external perimeter.” Naryshkin had previously stated that the security services in Russia and CIS countries have the common goal of “counteracting Western countries’ destructive actions on the territory of our states.”


"米軍は、ロシアと独立国家共同体(CIS)のメンバー国でテロ攻撃を行うために、イスラム国(IS、旧ISIS)とアルカイダに属するジハード主義グループの過激派を活発に勧誘している "とSVRは述べ、 "信頼できる報告 "を引用しています。





12月、ロシア調査庁の長官セルゲイ・ナリシキンは、ホワイトハウスが「ロシアの外周部に沿った不安定地帯」を作る政策を追求していると主張した。ナリシキン氏は以前、ロシアとCIS諸国の治安機関が "わが国の領土における西側諸国の破壊的な行動に対抗する "という共通の目標を持っていると発言していた。

India sends massive aid package to Türkiye and Syria
Over 100 tonnes of equipment and 200 personnel have been sent to areas affected by the devastating earthquakes

India has dispatched 130 tonnes of aid to Türkiye and another six tonnes to Syria to help with the aftermath of the devastating earthquakes that hit the countries on Monday.

On Tuesday, four C-17 aircraft of the Indian Air Force (IAF) airlifted equipment and medicine, as well as 101 National Disaster Relief Force (NDRF) personnel and 99 military medics to the disaster-hit areas. The aid packages are part of New Delhi’s human assistance and disaster relief (HADR) mission called ‘Operation Dost’, which means ‘friends’ in Hindi.

According to the Indian Ministry of External Affairs (MEA), the NDRF teams are self-contained rescue units. They carry a range of equipment necessary to search collapsed structures and rescue trapped survivors, such as angle cutters, rotary rescue saws, life detectors, lighting, air-lifting bags, chainsaws, hand and power tools and more. They are also accompanied by sniffer dog squads. The medical team will set up a 30-bed field hospital with operation theaters, X-ray machines and ventilators.

“One team went to Adana and another to Urfa. They will later converge at Nurdağı, one of the worst-hit areas. A third team of 51 operatives is on its way and the local administration will decide on its deployment,” NDRF Director-General Atul Karwal said at a media briefing in New Delhi on Wednesday evening.

India’s assistance was on its way even before Türkiye officially requested it, thanks to the initiative of Indian Foreign Minister Subrahmanyam Jaishankar, said Air Marshal Balabhadra Radha Krishna.

“The rapid response of the Indian administration stemmed from its annual exercise and standard operating procedure for HADR, which helped them mobilize resources within 12 hours from when the disaster occurred. Our interoperability and synergies among key government departments were on display as this is the farthest − up to nine hours of flying time − that we’ve managed to take our HADR initiative to date,” Krishna explained.

India boosted its disaster relief capabilities after the devastating tsunami that hit the coastal part of southern India, the Andaman and Nicobar islands, Sri Lanka and several other countries in the Indian Ocean region in December 2004, killing over 227,000 people. Since then, HADR has emerged as a security provider in emergencies across the region, as well as for Indians elsewhere in the world. One of its most recent efforts was ‘Operation Ganga’, which evacuated thousands of Indians stranded in and around Ukraine in March last year.

The current death toll from Monday’s devastating earthquakes that hit southern Türkiye and northwestern Syria stands at over 11,000 people. Other affected countries include Cyprus, Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Georgia and Armenia.

Türkiye’s ambassador to India, Firat Sunel, praised New Delhi’s assistance. “India’s reaction was important and critical because the first two-three days are very important as it’s a matter of life and death. India’s response was swift,” he said in an interview to abplive.com.









駐インド・トルコ大使のFirat Sunel氏は、ニューデリーの支援を賞賛した。「最初の2〜3日は生死にかかわる問題なので、インドの反応は重要かつ決定的だった。インドの対応は迅速だった」とabplive.comのインタビューに答えている。

Berlusconi floats cash-for-ceasefire deal in Ukraine
Washington should offer a new Marshall Plan to Kiev, but only after the hostilities are brought to an end, the ex-Italian PM said
US President Joe Biden should agree to continue sending aid to Ukraine, but only on the condition that Kiev immediately agrees to a ceasefire with Moscow, former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi said on Sunday.

Speaking after a regional election in Lombardy, Berlusconi, who leads the Forza Italia party, slammed Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, saying: “If I had been the prime minister, I would never have gone [to talk to him] because we are witnessing the devastation of his country and the slaughter of his soldiers and civilians.”

The former Italian leader stated that “it would have been enough for him to stop attacking the two autonomous republics of Donbass and this would not have happened,” adding that he views “this gentleman’s behavior very, very negatively.” Berlusconi was referring to the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, which, along with two other former Ukrainian territories, voted overwhelmingly to join Russia last autumn.

In order to bring the conflict to an end, he continued, Biden should offer Zelensky a new Marshall Plan to the tune of several billion dollars to rebuild the country, but only on condition that Zelensky “orders a ceasefire tomorrow.”

“Because starting from tomorrow we will no longer give you dollars and we will no longer give you weapons. Only such a thing could convince this gentleman to reach a ceasefire,” he said.

Following the remarks, his coalition ally, current PM Giorgia Meloni, appeared to distance herself from Berlusconi, with her office saying that Rome’s support for Kiev remains firm.

The former Italian prime minster, who served four terms from 1994 to 2011, developed close ties with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He even visited Crimea in 2015 after the peninsula voted in a referendum to join Russia, despite the fact that Western countries refused to recognize the results.

Since the beginning of the conflict in Ukraine in February 2022, Berlusconi has urged Moscow and Kiev to agree to a ceasefire, while offering to act as a mediator between the two sides. In November, he claimed that he could “lure” Putin to the negotiating table.

Kremlin Press Secretary Dmitry Peskov said at the time that Moscow welcomes any peace-making efforts, but noted that it would be better to try to “lure” Zelensky.




「明日からドルも武器も与えないからだ そのようなことでしか、この紳士を説得して停戦に至らせることはできない」と述べた。

Evacuations ordered amid fears of an explosion as an Ohio train continues burning days after derailment

Gene J. Puskar/AP

Residents near the site of a train derailment that sparked a massive fire in East Palestine, Ohio, were urged to evacuate immediately Sunday night due to the risk of an explosion, authorities said.

“Within the last two hours, a drastic temperature change has taken place in a rail car, and there is now the potential of a catastrophic tanker failure which could cause an explosion with the potential of deadly shrapnel traveling up to a mile,” Gov. Mike DeWine warned in a statement Sunday.

The train crashed Friday while carrying hazardous materials and led to a large inferno that continues to burn, which has also prompted concerns about air quality.

The governor said that crews are working to prevent the explosion, but nearby residents must leave immediately. While most people in the one-mile radius have already evacuated, more than 500 people have declined to leave their homes, according to local officials.

Anyone who stays in the area could be arrested, Columbiana County Sheriff Brian McLaughlin said, warning that, “There is a high probability of a toxic gas release and or explosion.”

A Yale Professor Suggested Mass Suicide for Old People in Japan. What Did He Mean?

Yusuke Narita says he is mainly addressing a growing effort to revamp Japan’s age-based hierarchies. Still, he has pushed the country’s hottest button.

His pronouncements could hardly sound more drastic.

In interviews and public appearances, Yusuke Narita, an assistant professor of economics at Yale, has taken on the question of how to deal with the burdens of Japan’s rapidly aging society.

“I feel like the only solution is pretty clear,” he said during one online news program in late 2021. “In the end, isn’t it mass suicide and mass ‘seppuku’ of the elderly?” Seppuku is an act of ritual disembowelment that was a code among dishonored samurai in the 19th century.

Last year, when asked by a school-age boy to elaborate on his mass seppuku theories, Dr. Narita graphically described to a group of assembled students a scene from “Midsommar,” a 2019 horror film in which a Swedish cult sends one of its oldest members to commit suicide by jumping off a cliff.

“Whether that’s a good thing or not, that’s a more difficult question to answer,” Dr. Narita told the questioner as he assiduously scribbled notes. “So if you think that’s good, then maybe you can work hard toward creating a society like that.”

2021年末のあるネットニュース番組で、「唯一の解決策ははっきりしているように思う」と語った。"結局、高齢者の集団自殺、集団「切腹」ではないでしょうか?" 切腹とは、19世紀に不名誉な武士の間で掟とされていた割腹のことである。

Academic responds to ‘mass suicide’ outrage
Dr. Yusuke Narita says his suggestion that the elderly kill themselves was “taken out of context”
Yale University professor Yusuke Narita has retracted his claim that old people in Japan should commit mass suicide to solve the country’s problem of a rapidly aging society.

Narita suggested what he said was the “only solution” to the crisis during an appearance on a Japanese YouTube news show back in 2021. “In the end, isn’t it mass suicide and mass ‘seppuku’ of the elderly?” he said, referring to the practice of ritual disembowelment performed by dishonored samurai between the 17th and 19th centuries.

His comments went largely unnoticed until they surfaced online last month and were quoted in a New York Times article on Sunday. The Times revealed Narita’s long history of promoting suicide, including his suggestion to a group of students last year that people could simply throw themselves off cliffs, and an interview in which he said that “making [euthanasia] mandatory” will one day “come up in discussion.”

According to last year’s data, Japan had the highest senior population ratio in the world, with almost 30% of its people being over the age of 65. The country also has one of the lowest birth rates and the highest public debt in the developed world.

The Times did not directly endorse Narita’s “solution,” but noted that his comments may open the door “to much-needed political conversations about pension reform and changes to social welfare,” and that a majority of the Japanese public supports legalizing voluntary euthanasia.

In the West, however, the damage was done. Spectator contributing editor Stephen Miller declared that the “American press is rapidly on their way to endorsing…euthanasia,” as hundreds of outraged comments piled up under a tweet by the Times promoting the story. Narita’s fellow academics and writers accused him of being “irresponsible” and inciting “hatred toward the vulnerable.”

In a response to the newspaper, Narita said that his words were “taken out of context,” and that he wasn’t talking about old people in general, being “primarily concerned with the phenomenon in Japan, where the same tycoons continue to dominate the worlds of politics, traditional industries, and media/entertainment/journalism for many years.”

Phrases such as “mass suicide” and “mass seppuku” were just “an abstract metaphor,” he insisted, adding that he already made a decision stop using such terms altogether last year.

In January, the Japanese government released data for the number of suicides in the country in 2022. It revealed that 21,584 people took their lives last year, which was 577 more than in 2021.

“The rise in men in their 40s through 60s, as well as pensioners or those who are unemployed, stands out,” a health ministry official said as he commented on the figures.

しかし、欧米では、ダメージは大きかった。Spectatorの寄稿者であるスティーブン・ミラー氏は、「アメリカの報道機関は急速に安楽死を支持する方向に向かっている」と宣言し、タイムズ紙がこの記事を宣伝するツイートの下に何百もの怒りのコメントが積み重なったのである。成田氏の仲間の学者や作家たちは、彼を「無責任だ」「"弱者への憎しみ "を煽っている」と非難した。

Polish leader warns of Russian victory
Ukraine will lose without "urgent help" from the West, Andrzej Duda says
Russia may win the conflict in Ukraine if the Kiev government isn’t supplied with Western weapons in the coming weeks, Polish President Andrzej Duda has said.

During an interview with the French newspaper Le Figaro on Saturday, Duda was asked if he thought the Russians could achieve victory in Ukraine.

"Yes, they can, if Ukraine doesn’t receive help very urgently," the Polish leader replied.

The Kiev authorities "don't have modern military infrastructure, but they have people," he explained.

"If we do not send military equipment to Ukraine in the coming weeks, [Russia’s President Vladimir] Putin may win. He can win and we don’t know where he’ll stop," Duda warned.

His comments didn’t go unnoticed by Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, who took to Telegram on Saturday to point out that even if Western weapons are supplied to Ukraine hurriedly – they won’t be able to change the outcome of the conflict.

土曜日にフランスの新聞Le Figaroとのインタビューの中で、ドゥダは、ロシアがウクライナで勝利を収めることができると思うかと聞かれた。





Chechen leader explains when Russian borders can change
It only happens when Moscow decides to do so, Ramzan Kadyrov says
Western hopes that Russia is going to be separated into several smaller states are in vain as only Moscow can decide on the shape of the country’s borders, the leader of Russia’s Republic of Chechnya, Ramzan Kadyrov, has said.

“As for the breakdown of Russia, such attempts have been made by the West since the 1990s,” Kadyrov wrote on Telegram on Sunday.

“Russian borders change only when it wants this itself,” the Chechen leader insisted, making it clear that those attempts won’t succeed.

Kadyrov said that he wrote his post in response to an “overconfident expert” from Ukraine who predicted a scenario in which the Russian state is dissolved.

The expert in question was most likely Aleksey Danilov, the secretary of Ukraine’s National Security and Defense Council, who claimed on Saturday that Russia was a colonial state that was going to fall apart anyway.

“There’ll be free Ichkeria [the name given to Chechnya by the separatists in the 1900s], Tatarstan, Dagestan. It’ll happen in the near future, and we need to prepare for this and don’t pretend that if they [Russia] have nuclear weapons, this won’t happen,” Danilov said.

Russian borders last changed in the fall when the People’s Republics of Donetsk and Lugansk, and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions joined Russia following referendums, in which the populations of those areas overwhelmingly supported this move.
