国連、EU加盟国でのウクライナ人女性への虐待を無視 - モスクワ

UN ignores abuse of Ukrainian women in EU country – Moscow
The real threat to female refugees doesn’t come from Russia, the Foreign Ministry says
The UN and human rights bodies are turning a blind eye to reports of sexual exploitation of female Ukrainian refugees in Sweden, the spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, has said. 

In a post on Telegram on Saturday, Zakharova called attention to a statement made last month by the Swedish Gender Equality Agency, which sounded the alarm over “an increased risk of Ukrainian refugees being exposed to human trafficking, labor exploitation and prostitution in Sweden.”

The police have been investigating some 20 such cases, but many more offenses remain unreported, according to the agency. There has also been a rise in the number of prostitutes from Ukraine in Sweden since the outbreak of the conflict between Kiev and Moscow in late February, it added. 

The statement was widely reported by the Swedish media, “but no reaction from Kiev or the international community followed,” the spokeswoman pointed out.  

She noted how the UN special representative on sexual violence, Pramila Patten, claimed in October that the Russian military has been pursuing a deliberate “rape strategy” during its military operation in Ukraine.

ザハロワは土曜日のテレグラムへの投稿で、スウェーデン男女平等庁が先月発表した声明に注意を促し、"スウェーデンでウクライナ難民が人身売買、労働搾取、売春にさらされるリスクが高まっている "と警鐘を鳴らしている。




The Foreign Ministry spokeswoman also recalled the former Ukrainian human rights commissioner, Lyudmila Denisova, who had been behind the claims of sexual abuse by Russian troops early in the conflict, but ended up being fired by Kiev in May. “Denisova admitted that she simply lied, ‘trying to persuade the world to provide weapons [to Ukraine] and put pressure on Russia,’” Zakharova wrote. 

“The real threat to Ukrainian women doesn’t come from Russia, but awaits them in Europe,” the spokeswoman insisted. 

The UN and human rights bodies, however, “are silent because it’s not in their rules to draw attention to a real humanitarian problem; or because they are performing yet another political order,” Zakharova said. She added that neither option looked good.

The spokeswoman also advised Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba to stop attacking Moscow and switch his attention to Stockholm.  

Patten previously acknowledged during a prank call that her harsh “rape” claims concerning the Russian military were based solely on what Ukrainian officials had told her and that she didn’t have any actual proof to back them up.

Germany ‘sleepwalking’ into new migration crisis – top MEP
Berlin is ignoring the challenges linked to Ukrainian refugees, Manfred Weber has said

Germany is facing a new refugee influx fueled by the Ukraine conflict and the country is doing nothing to prepare for it, Manfred Weber, the president of the European People's Party (EPP), said on Saturday.

Speaking to Welt am Sonntag newspaper, Weber, who is also the leader of the EPP Group in the European Parliament, claimed that Germany “is sleepwalking into a new migration crisis.” To prove his point, he said that accommodation centers in Germany were already full, with municipal authorities in a number of other European countries under strain as well.

The politician stressed that due to the destruction of Ukrainian energy infrastructure by Russian strikes, “we have to be ready for a large number of Ukrainians coming to the EU this winter – and many of them to Germany.”

“I'm afraid we will experience a dramatic exodus this winter,” he said.

It is possible that Germany will have to accommodate Ukrainians in gyms, as well as restricting school and business activities to handle the crisis, Weber noted.

“Germany is not prepared for this situation. The federal government simply ignores the challenges,” he added.

Russian strikes on Ukraine’s power plants have knocked out a significant portion of the country’s energy grid. The bombardments follow Moscow’s accusation that Kiev conducted “terrorist attacks” on Russian infrastructure, including the strategic Crimean Bridge.

Weber also addressed the issue of refugees coming to Europe from Africa via Italy. According to him, Germany should help Italy handle the crisis not through supporting rescue efforts, but rather by organizing joint European patrols “at the external borders of the Mediterranean.”

“If you do not have a visa, a passport or a reason for asylum, you should be returned immediately,” he said.

In recent months, various European countries have been stocking up on food and other supplies in anticipation of a winter influx of Ukrainian refugees.

According to UN data, about 4.8 million refugees are currently registered with various national protection schemes in Europe, with almost eight million displaced Ukrainians recorded across Europe in total.

ベルリンはウクライナ難民に関連する課題を無視している、とManfred Weber氏が述べた。


欧州議会のEPPグループのリーダーでもあるウェーバー氏は、Welt am Sonntag紙の取材に対し、ドイツは "新たな移民危機へと夢遊病的になっている "と主張した。ドイツ国内の宿泊施設はすでに満室で、他の多くの欧州諸国の自治体も同様に負担を強いられていると指摘した。


"この冬は劇的な出稼ぎを経験することになるのではないか "と述べた。





"ビザやパスポート、亡命の理由がない場合は、即座に戻すべきである "と述べた。

中国の反ロックダウン運動 西側の二重基準がからかわれている

Chinese anti-lockdown protesters earn the praise that eluded their Western peers
Establishment politicians and media outlets have praised the ‘freedom-loving’ Chinese, after demonizing those who spoke out against their own lockdowns
“It’s really important that citizens be able to make themselves heard, that they are protesting on a specific issue that touches on so many others – of government control of authoritarian states – we, of course, stand with those protesters,” Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said this week in response to the ongoing protests in China against the government’s zero-Covid policy. 

Where was Trudeau’s support when those of us living in France back in March 2020 were ordered into our homes for over two months under the threat of hefty fines, and allowed only to go out with a personal-trip certificate that entitled the bearer to leave home for one of a few select reasons?

Either you were performing a professional activity that couldn’t be done remotely, going to a grocery store (where lineups outside were mandated to ensure social distancing inside), going to the doctor, or attending to an urgent family matter. You could also go out for one hour of individual exercise, once a day, but it had to be within one kilometer of your home.

Trudeau and his fellow Western leaders adopted their own zero-Covid measures by various degrees. Not one of them denounced the others as authoritarian for effectively placing people under house arrest and depriving them of their freedom to move, assemble, protest, work, and make decisions about their own health and well-being without involving the state. 

Trudeau himself went as far as invoking the Emergencies Act against anti-mandate ‘Freedom Convoy’ protesters and their supporters, who demanded equal treatment and access to work and travel for both the vaccinated and the unvaccinated, treating them like terrorists and ordering bank accounts blocked. 

Now that the protesters fighting against Covid-related crackdowns are in China, the Western establishment sympathizes with them in a way that they could never bring themselves to do with their own citizens. “At the heart of China's protests against zero-Covid, young people cry for freedom,” wrote CNN this week. But back in March 2020, while reporting that France was going into a lockdown in which “all non-essential outings are outlawed and can draw a fine,” CNN just reported matter-of-factly that “France goes into lockdown after Macron promises to protect businesses.” Earlier this year, CNN reported that “Europe’s loud, rule-breaking unvaccinated minority are falling out of society.” Suddenly, those loud folks crying for freedom from their government’s heavy-handed Covid policies are just a bunch of hooligans. 

The UK’s Daily Mail recently referred to China’s “Covid revolution,” but when an estimated 10,000 protesters took to the streets of London in August of 2020 to demonstrate against lockdowns and mandates, the newspaper dismissed them as “conspiracy theorists.” 

Sky News has said of the uprising in China that “after living with extreme restrictions for months, many citizens have had enough.” However, in September 2020, the same news outlet qualified British protesters as anti-lockdown conspiracist nutjobs and hoaxers. 

German state broadcaster Deutsche Welle referred to the Chinese uprising as an “extraordinary moment in China” that’s “spreading further,” but last December, the same outlet described protests at home against German government restrictions as “illegal” and said that they were becoming “more militant.” 

On French television earlier this week, I heard a commentator say that the Chinese government sought to displace the blame for the uprising onto Western foreign interference, of which he was totally dismissive. But where were these same experts to denounce Canadian officials when they were delegitimizing protesters’ concerns by speculating that they could simply be the useful tools of meddling American populists? But when the government suggesting foreign interference is China, that idea is dismissed out of hand. 

Western press reports have also zeroed in on arrests and beatings of Chinese protesters by the authorities.  Where was their criticism of the reported loss of at least 24 eyes and five hands during police crackdowns on French protesters in recent years in response to overreaching government policies? 

This week, European Council President Charles Michel flew to Beijing to meet with Chinese President Xi Jinping as Europe seeks to develop trade relations in an economically fragile and precarious time for the bloc amid an energy crunch and inflation that threaten its deindustrialization. European officials had said that they wanted him to confront the Chinese leader on his Covid measures, according to Politico. Where exactly is he going to find the moral authority to do that? Last year, Michel was calling on Europe to fight against citizen resistance to jab mandates. 

When their own fellow citizens are standing up to rapidly growing government oppression, the Western establishment is all too quick to denounce them while defending the loss of fundamental rights enacted by self-described democracies that have been behaving like anything but. But when the same phenomenon is unfolding in China – well, you can’t stop the spread of freedom, right?

ラブロフ外相の記者会見 記者との質疑応答

Nuclear war risks, Pope’s ‘unchristian’ remarks, and ‘lies’ about Ukraine talks: Key points from Lavrov’s press conference
The Russian foreign minister covered a wide range of topics during a question and answer session with journalists
The US is pursuing geostrategic goals without regard for the risk of nuclear escalation amid the ongoing Ukraine conflict, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said on Thursday during a press conference. Moscow is nonetheless ready for dialogue with Washington or any other party that wishes to engage, he added.

Lavrov also explained Russia’s choice of strike targets in Ukraine, and touched on controversial recent comments by the Pope.

Here’s a recap of the main points from Lavrov’s video-link press conference.

Peace talks ‘lies’ 
People are lying when they claim that Russia is offering to negotiate with Ukraine in bad faith and is only interested in buying time for its military to regroup, the foreign minister stated.

“We never asked for any negotiations. But we always stated that if somebody has an interest in a negotiated settlement, we are ready to listen,” he said, pointing to talks in Istanbul in late March as an example.

He accused the US of pushing Kiev towards continued military confrontation and derailing the peace process. Washington is seeking to weaken Russia and profit from arms sales, he claimed.

US subjugation of European security 
Moscow doesn’t need “the kind of security” architecture that Western countries are trying to build without Russia and Belarus, Lavrov said. “European security now boils down to being fully submissive to the US,” he added.







Just a few years ago, France and Germany sought independence from American military protection, Lavrov recalled. But the US is determined to make NATO indispensable, and wants to pit other European nations against Russia, he claimed. If they choose to change this direction, Moscow would be willing to discuss better alternatives, the foreign minister said.

Strike targets in Ukraine and US, NATO role in the conflict 
Western nations should not claim that they’re not participants in the Ukraine war, considering everything they’ve done for Kiev, Lavrov said, as he explained the Russian military’s choice of strike targets in the country. 

“We are taking out infrastructure objects, which allow you to pump lethal weapons into Ukraine so that they can kill Russians. So don’t say that the US and NATO are not part of this war. You are participating in it directly,” he insisted.

In addition to sending arms, NATO members are training Ukrainian troops both on their soil and on the ground, the minister added. There is “a large number of mercenaries” involved, open intelligence sharing while “an overwhelming number of targets” attacked by Kiev “are picked by Western masters of this [sic] regime,” he stated.




Risks of nuclear war 
Russia believes that any armed conflict between nuclear states should be avoided and urges other states to adopt the same stance, Lavrov said.

“Even if somebody plans to start a war with conventional weapons, the risk of it sliding into a nuclear war would be immense,” he explained. He added that this made Western claims that Russia could use weapons of mass destruction in Ukraine particularly concerning.

‘Unchristian’ remarks from the Vatican
Lavrov criticized Pope Francis for making a controversial statement about Buryats and Chechens, two of the many ethnic groups in Russia, who serve in the Russian Armed Forces, and take part in the special military operation in Ukraine.

The pontiff’s claim that they were particularly prone to brutality on the battlefield was, Lavrov said, “strange” and “unchristian,” and “certainly didn’t help the cause [of peace in Ukraine] and the reputation of the Holy See.”

 Open doors for talks 
Moscow will not reject any contact with any party that seeks to engage, but does not expect fruitful talks to happen with Western nations at this time, Lavrov said.

“Anyone asking for a phone conversation gets one, the president speaks to them with no time constraints. But we don’t hear any meaningful ideas,” he said.

The West’s policy of not discussing “Ukraine without Ukraine” is “at least naive” and obviously flawed, Lavrov added, since ignoring the Ukraine conflict when discussing global stability is impossible. After all, the US has declared the defeat of Russia, a major player in global security, as its goal in Ukraine, he remarked.

Palestinian militants say 100 rockets launched at Israel (VIDEOS)
Israel’s Iron Dome intercepted many, as IDF jets pounded Gaza
The Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) said on Friday that it had launched more than 100 rockets at Israel, warning that a wider offensive would follow. The assault was launched in response to an Israeli military operation that killed one of the PIJ’s most senior commanders and continued to rock Gaza overnight.

Israeli jets struck an apartment building in Gaza earlier on Friday, eliminating PIJ commander Taysir al-Jabari. The Israel Defense Forces (IDF) also targeted an additional 10-20 PIJ operatives with missiles and artillery, in a dramatic offensive it named ‘Operation Breaking Dawn’.

The PIJ immediately threatened to strike Tel Aviv with missiles in response, and within hours of al-Jabari’s death, air raid sirens could be heard across southern Israel. Video footage shot by RT Arabic correspondent Dalia Nammari showed some of these projectiles passing overhead near the Israel-Gaza border, with some intercepted by Israel’s Iron Dome missile defense batteries.

EUの石油価格上限は「暴力的」なスパイクをもたらす可能性 - エコノミスト

EU oil price cap may result in ‘violent’ spikes – Economist
Restricting Russian seaborne crude supply may shatter the energy market, according to the outlet
As the European Union’s sanctions on Russian oil are about to kick in next week, the measure could result in price shocks on the global market, The Economist reported on Friday. The EU has agreed on a $60-per-barrel price cap on Russian seaborne oil.

According to the report, European insurers and shipping firms have long had a “vice-like hold” on energy markets. Fully 95% of property and indemnity insurance for all oil tankers has been handled by firms from the UK and the EU. This appeared to be a lever with which the West could control the sale of Russian oil globally.

However, if Russian oil fails to make it to the market, then global oil prices may spike, hurting Western consumers, the outlet writes. “Hence America’s Treasury Department has since devised a cunning plan to water it down: to let European firms continue to offer their services, provided the oil involved is bought at a suppressed price set by the West.”

Everything depends on how Moscow responds, according to the Economist report, which warns the Kremlin could cut its oil exports, relying on a smaller group of non-Western tankers and insurers, and sending global prices spiraling.

“The other uncertainty is how much power the West will ultimately wield over global oil markets.”

The report noted that countries such as China, India and Indonesia want to avoid participating in Western sanctions and embargoes. They are reportedly seeking alternative sources of day-to-day insurance–and, because the ban was announced six months ago, “have had time to prepare.”

According to The Economist, the “true balance of power” in oil markets will become apparent after December 5, with a “violent price spike” possible.

“Just as financial sanctions have energized attempts to evade the Western banking system, so the war will lead China, India and others to circumvent the West’s energy infrastructure. As weapons, sanctions and embargoes have their limits–and a finite shelf-life,” the outlet concludes.






報告書は、中国、インド、インドネシアなどの国々が、欧米の制裁や禁輸に参加することを避けたいと考えていることを指摘した。彼らは代替の日常的な保険源を求めているとされ、禁止が6カ月前に発表されたため、"準備する時間があった "という。


Shipping costs for Russian oil rising – Bloomberg
Carriers are reportedly charging more for cargo due to risks ahead of EU restrictions on trade in crude
The costs of transporting Russian oil are soaring as more tanker owners are avoiding the trade, while others are charging more for the risks involved ahead of EU sanctions that come into effect on December 5, Bloomberg reported on Thursday.

The bloc’s expanded restrictions on trade in Russian crude will ban EU companies from providing services such as insurance, brokerage or financial assistance to vessels carrying oil from the sanctions-hit country, unless the cargo is purchased below an agreed price. Similar restrictions, including a price cap for other petroleum products, are due in February.

Shipbrokers told the agency that Baltic Sea-to-India rates are being discussed at about $15 million, or $20 a barrel, for loadings after December 5, marking a sharp increase from the rates that, so far, have been fluctuating from $9 million to $11.5 million.

The reduced availability of tankers, as well as the need for Russian producers to reorient oil from traditional buyers in the EU to new ones in Asia and the Middle East, are also contributing to higher rates. Meanwhile, pricey freight is sending the value of Russian crude, such as its flagship Urals grade, plummeting at their load port, as sellers ensure that the final price of the cargo remains competitive against alternatives.

Late on Thursday, EU leaders tentatively agreed to set the price cap threshold for Russian seaborne crude at $60 per barrel. The governments also decided to implement an adjustment mechanism to keep the cap at 5% below the market price, Reuters reported, citing diplomat sources and documentation.

Russia warns of ‘huge’ risks of sliding into nuclear war
A non-nuclear clash between nuclear states may very likely escalate into an outright nuclear war, Sergey Lavrov has cautioned

Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov has warned that any conflict between nuclear states, even if it starts with conventional weapons, is likely to escalate into an all-out nuclear war, and thus should be avoided at all costs.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, the diplomat was asked about Moscow and Washington’s joint efforts to reduce their strategic capabilities. Lavrov responded by pointing out that in September 2021 the US had essentially frozen the bilateral talks on reaching an agreement on the limitation of strategic offensive arms, long before Russia launched its military operation in Ukraine.

“It’s not hard to figure out what their reasoning was,” Lavrov noted. He admitted, however, that Washington and Moscow’s responsibilities as the two largest nuclear powers in the world do not change, and recalled a joint statement made by Russian and American leaders that a nuclear war cannot be won by anyone and therefore must not be allowed to start.

The minister added that Russia was willing to take that statement further and stressed that any conflict between nuclear states is unacceptable, as even a conventional war has a “huge” risk of escalating into a nuclear altercation.

“This is also why we are so anxiously watching the rhetoric the West spews out accusing us of preparing some alleged provocations using weapons of mass destruction,” Lavrov said, noting that the West, including the USA, France and the UK, are doing everything to increase their almost direct participation in the conflict in Ukraine, where he says they are essentially waging war against Russia through the hands of the Ukrainians.

“This is a dangerous trend,” Lavrov warned.






US and NATO directly involved in Ukraine conflict – Lavrov
Washington not only supplies Kiev with weapons but is also training its troops, says the Russian Foreign Minister
The US and NATO are directly participating in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told a media conference on Thursday, accusing the West of seeking to completely destroy Russia.

Lavrov pointed out that Washington and its allies have essentially announced to the public that they are not just seeking Russia’s defeat on the battlefield but want it “destroyed altogether as a player.” There is even some discussion on how they could divide up Russian territories among themselves, the diplomat added. 

“Don’t say that the US and NATO are not participating in this war. You are directly involved,” Lavrov stated, noting that the West is not only supplying Kiev with weapons, whose sole purpose is to kill Russians but is also actively training the Ukrainian military in countries like the UK, Germany, and Italy. 

He added that aside from a significant number of mercenaries, there is also an ever-increasing number of Western instructors who are working directly on the ground in Ukraine and are showing troops how to fire the “trinkets” that are being supplied to the country.

According to a report by CNN, the Biden administration is currently considering a dramatic expansion of the training the US military provides Kiev. The plan could include instructing as many as 2,500 Ukrainian soldiers a month at a base in Germany, the channel claimed, citing multiple US officials.

Washington has already committed close to $20 billion in security assistance to Kiev since the beginning of the conflict in late February. 

Last month, Moscow summoned the British Ambassador to Russia over claims that the UK had provided training to Ukrainian forces that attacked Russia’s Black Sea Fleet in Crimea in late October. The British Defense Ministry, however, has denied the allegations.

Russia cautions Türkiye on military operation in Syria
Moscow’s envoy has asked Ankara to avoid using excessive force
Ankara should try to refrain from using “excessive” force in its military strikes on targets in Syria to avoid escalating the situation further, a top Russian official said on Tuesday.

Alexander Lavrentyev, the Russian president's special envoy on Syria, asked Türkiye to “show restraint in order to prevent an escalation of tensions, not only in the northern and northeastern regions of Syria, but throughout the entire territory,” according to RIA news agency.

He stressed the importance of finding a peaceful solution to the “Kurdish issue” and stated that Russia was willing to work with all interested parties. “We hope to convince our Turkish partners to refrain from using excessive force on Syrian territory,” he added.

The Russian envoy also noted that the “illegal” presence of US troops in Syria was significantly hindering stability in the region. He suggested that if Washington’s military contingent were to withdraw from the northeastern part of the country, it would help to calm the situation.

Laverentyev’s comments came after Turkish warplanes carried out a series of strikes destroying 89 targets in Syria and Iraq on Sunday, which were reportedly linked to the Kurdistan Workers Party (PKK) and the YPG. Ankara considers these groups to be terrorist organizations and blames them for the November 13 bomb attack in Istanbul, which claimed the lives of six people and wounded 81 more.

On Monday, the Turkish military announced that its artillery would also join so-called ‘Operation Claw-Sword’ after Kurdish militants reportedly shelled the southeastern Turkish city of Karkamis, killing three civilians. On Sunday, a Turkish border checkpoint in the southeastern Kilis Province also reportedly came under rocket artillery fire, wounding eight Turkish security personnel. 

Türkiye claims to have “neutralized” some 184 “terrorists” so far. The Kurdish Rojava Information Center reported 11 dead and nine injured civilians, along with three Kurdish fighters and “heavy casualties” among the Syrian Arab Army.

Aram Hanna, a spokesman for the US-backed Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), has accused Türkiye of “war crimes” and said its air force had carried out “double-tap” strikes, targeting rescue workers arriving at the site of the initial attack.

While Ankara’s operation has yet to see Turkish troops cross the Syrian or Iraqi borders, Erdogan has stated that ‘Claw-Sword’ would not be limited to just airstrikes.

ISIS announces death of leader – media
The terrorist group says its “caliph” Abu al-Hasan died “in battle”
The Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS) terrorist group has lost another leader, multiple media outlets reported Wednesday. Abu al-Hasan al-Hashimi al-Qurashi died “in battle,” the organization annonced, in a statement reported by Reuters, AFP and regional agencies.

According to IS, al-Hasan killed several “enemies” before dying “on the battlefield,” but it offered no details as to the time or place of the incident, and its account could not be independently verified. 

The new IS leader has been named as Abu Hussein al-Hussaini al-Qurashi.

Al-Hasan was the third self-styled “caliph” of IS. He took over earlier this year, after his predecessor Abu Ibrahim al-Hashimi al-Qurashi was killed during a US special forces raid in February. The operation took place in Syria’s Idlib province, which is under the control of terrorist anti-government militants allegedly backed by Türkiye or Western governments.

In September, Turkish authorities announced the capture of a senior IS leader named Abu Zeyd, who was said to be Abu Ibrahim’s possible successor.

IS was proclaimed in 2013 by an Iraqi salafist militant calling himself Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi. Under his command, the terrorist group conquered large portions of the Middle East, exploiting the fallout from the 2003 US invasion of Iraq and the foreign-backed insurrection against the government of Syria. 

The US and its allies launched an air campaign against IS in 2014, while the Iraqi military and Kurdish militias engaged the group on the ground. Damascus pushed it from the west, with Russian and Iranian support. The group had officially lost claim to any territorial control by March 2019, while Al-Baghdadi killed himself when US special forces raided his Idlib compound in October 2019.

Mental health issues rising among youth in England
A sharp increase in emotional problems has been linked to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and “wider global uncertainties”
Mental health issues are increasing among children and teenagers in England, a new NHS Digital report shows, predicting a sharp increase in mental disorders among 17- to 19-year-olds in 2022.

Published on Tuesday, the report found that one in four young Britons are now experiencing issues, including emotional or behavioral problems, compared to the one-in-six rate recorded in 2021. The survey sampled some 2,866 children and young people who are aged between seven and 24.

Among those aged seven to 10, prevalence of a potential mental disorder was nearly twice as high in boys – 19.7% against 10.5% in girls. Among the older 17- to 24-year-old age group, the prevalence was much higher in young women – 31.2% compared to only 13.3% in young men.

Teenagers of both genders showed similar results, with the figure hovering around 20%.

Researchers linked the increase in mental health issues to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Co-author of the survey Dr Tamsin Newlove-Delgado, a senior lecturer at the University of Exeter, said the pandemic “has been quite a shock to the system in terms of impact on young people’s education, family, home lives and socializing.”

The ever-rising cost of living and “wider global uncertainties” are also having an impact on young people’s mental health, Newlove-Delgado noted, adding that 17- to 19-year-olds are going through “a time of quite stressful change.”

Researchers also drew a link between social and economic issues and mental health.

“There are strong associations between poor health – both physical and mental – over housing insecurity, financial insecurity [and], sadly these days, food and heating insecurity, and we certainly see that cross-section here,” report co-author Tamsin Ford, a professor with the University of Cambridge, said.

British charities quickly spoke up about the NHS findings, urging the UK government to act before it is too late. London risks “failing an entire generation unless it prioritises investment in young people's mental-health services,” the mental health charity Mind said.

“Young people and their families cannot be sidelined any longer by the government, who need to prioritise the crisis in youth mental health as a matter of national emergency,” Mind interim CEO Sophie Corlett stated.

感情的な問題の急増は、Covid-19のパンデミックの影響と "より広い世界的な不確実性 "に関連しています。
イングランドでは、子供や10代の間で精神的な問題が増加していることが、NHS Digitalの新しい報告書で明らかになり、2022年には17歳から19歳の間で精神障害が急増すると予測されています。




研究者たちは、メンタルヘルスの問題が増えているのは、Covid-19の大流行が影響していると考えています。調査の共著者であるエクセター大学の上級講師Tamsin Newlove-Delgado博士は、パンデミックは "若者の教育、家族、家庭生活、社交に与える影響という点でかなり衝撃的であった "と述べている。

上昇し続ける生活費と「より広い世界的な不確実性」も若者の精神衛生に影響を与えているとニューラブ=デルガド氏は指摘し、17歳から19歳の若者は "かなりストレスの多い変化の時期 "を経験していると付け加えています。


「身体的・精神的な健康状態の悪化と、住宅不安、経済的不安、そして悲しいことに最近では食料・暖房の不安との間には強い関連性があり、このような断面が見られる」と、レポートの共同執筆者であるケンブリッジ大学のTamsin Ford教授は述べています。
