This happened after the call of the People’s Front MP Sergei Vysotsky to “destroy” TV channels with “Russian roots.” The “Popular Front” is a ultra-nationalist group advocating the suppression of all political opponents of the Kiev regime by force. Like all Ukrainian nationalists, they consider any opposition activity as a sign of sympathy for Russia.

Jordan: the people’s revolt brings down a government

Jordan has joined the list of countries where the people no longer content themselves with the crumbs offered by parliamentary window-dressing, but walk out onto the streets in their thousands and tens of thousands in order to create better conditions of living for the working population. Mass demonstrations were staged in the so-called Fourth District of Amman where the seat of the Prime Minister is and in provincial cities such as Irbid, Tafila, El Kerak, Er Ramsa and Maan every evening from 31 May all the way to 7 June. The movement scored some successes, the most spectacular being the virtual sacking of the government of Hani Mulki, the freezing of fuel price hikes and later the withdrawal of the controversial tax bill that was perhaps the major bone of contention. As a result of these concessions and the overall flexible attitude of the higher echelons of the state, including the King, the demonstrations were finally called off on 8 June.
