Today is a sad day for Georgia, because our government has taken another step towards Russia and away from Europe," said protester Makvala Naskidashvili.

"But I am also happy because I see such unity among the youth," the 88-year-old added. "They are proud Europeans and will not let anyone spoil their European dream."

The TV channel BabyTV has been the victim of a cyber attack in which a Russian propaganda film was suddenly shown on the children's channel.

This afternoon, it seems it was hacked again for 13 minutes, showing bombardments to babies & toddlers ( 0- 4 years old).

Unbelievable this crap

iirc: then Chinese mafia occasionally works with the CCP, this was hearsay some 20 years ago though, when I came across some several personal experiences. So I'm not sure .

"Official Chinese figures show 12,000 repatriation cases from more than 120 countries as a result of the two main repatriation campaigns. These are often touted by Beijing as a major success. It is not clear exactly how much of this is propaganda and how much is real data. To give a sense of the scale, a few years ago China managed to persuade 230,000 people to return to China in just one year as part of a special campaign in which the threat of collective punishment was also used as a means of persuasion."

So basically Chinese refuges or expats resident have never been safe. Its not something recent .And apperantly the Chinese Gvement isn't respecting the sovereignty of other countries at all. It's a wakeupcall, our territories are "infiltrated and not safe", and now with the upcoming collaboration between Hungary and China, it will only get worse; if we don't change our ways soon.

For at least ten years, the Chinese Communist Party has been abducting its overseas citizens on EU territory and forcibly returning them to China - violating the rule of law and public security in Europe - a new report finds.

We've heard some reports about illegal Chinese policestations abroad before. But it seems now that it's been going on for a very long time, and on much broader scale then previously thought.

EU member states on Monday (15 April) were close to a deal, with EU diplomats saying last outstanding technical issues remained to be solved, with the aim for the bloc to use the profits by June.

Separately, G7 ministers this week, pressed by Washington, are expected to discuss the idea of confiscating the reserves in their entirety and transferring them to Ukraine

So, you claim lots of things, but I miss you backing up your arguments with substantiated evidence like a link. Instead of keeping attacking my argument it would be nice if you'd actually provide evidence based info.

For example, in addition to my earlier point via this article.

"As director of the International Fact-Checking Network, I’ve watched this movement label fact-checkers as part of a “censorship industrial complex,” claiming that fact-checkers are trying to suppress debatable information. Ironically, this deeply misleading argument itself is aimed at suppressing critique and debate."

Sounds familiar?

I am just critical about newssources with mixed credibility when we are already facing a very polarised situation.

You couldn't think of a better Propaganda Op for a state actor in the modern Internet age than setting up a centralized "media facts checker" that makes sure media sources

But I could, I could simply write articles which are simply based on half truth and publish them for a wider public. Which is happening already on a huge scale.

So, I was asking for a better source, and then you are suggesting that I'm the one advocating state sponsored propaganda?

So, I wonder, out of curiosity, how would you objectively review news sources?

Here's another media factchecker: groundnews: mixed factuality rating. Also the credibility score is handed out by an external party Pointer Institute for Fact Checking , and I wasn't talking about the political left or right bias.

Land-grab has been ongoing for decades. (link guardian

This has been the most successful land-grab strategy since 1967,” said Yehuda Shaul, a prominent activist who is director of the Israeli Center for Public Affairs thinktank, and a founder of Breaking the Silence, an NGO that exposes military abuses in occupied areas.

Over the last year alone, 110,000 dunams, or 110 sq km (42 sq miles), was effectively annexed by settlers on herding outposts, he said. All the built-up settlement areas constructed since 1967 cover only 80 sq km.

It was also the biggest displacement of Palestinian Bedouins since 1972, when at least 5,000 – and perhaps as many as 20,000 – people were moved from the northern Sinai to make way for settlements, Shaul added.

Condemning Iran because of attacking back but when Israel does it - it suppose to be okay? Double standards.

No, you are wrong. The EU condemned the atack on the embassy in Damascus, see link

"BRUSSELS, April 3 (Reuters) - The European Union on Wednesday condemned an airstrike on the Iranian embassy in Damascus on April 1 that killed seven people and called on countries in the region to show restraint."

Please respond in an informed way, instead of escalating things without any basis. Let's stay on topic.

Hopefully it gives right wingers less ammo

Yes, I believe that the timing was not a coincidence, as it is before the EP elections. And, like you said, the idea of giving them ammo, although often used as an argument, won't matter too much as the claims by far right aren't based on the immediate reality but on fears.

US officials said that China provided more than 70% of the $900m (£723m) in machine tools – probably used to build ballistic missiles – imported in the last quarter of 2023 by Russia.

They also said that 90% of Russia’s microelectronics imports – used to produce missiles, tanks and aircraft – came from China last year.

The case is special given its international dimension and the fact that it is not only about espionage but also about the infiltration of the Austrian political system and the weakening of the country’s internal security,”

Between 2017 and 2021, the Austrian warrant says, Ott collected sensitive information on people of interest to Russia “for the purpose of transmission to Jan Marsalek and to unknown representatives of Russian authorities” by conducting numerous searches in national police databases and making requests to other European police officers, including in Italy and Britain.

Roberta Metsola, the European parliament president, wrote on X: “History made. We have delivered a robust legislative framework on how to deal with migration and asylum in the EU. It has been more than 10 years in the making. But we kept our word. A balance between solidarity and responsibility. This is the European way.”

Now, we must make sure that what has been agreed to is fully implemented in all our Member States, and that implementation goes hand in hand with the respect for our shared humanity,” Parliament’s President Roberta Metsola said after the vote.

It is not a perfect solution, it is a compromise that we in the European Parliament are accepting with a heavy lump in our throats, but was absolutely necessary,” said one of the leading negotiators, Slovakian Socialist MEP Matjaz Nemec.
