WAR OVER? Russia Banned From International TREE Of The Year Contest

“The exclusion of Russia from the competition is a step that must be understood in the context of international efforts to isolate Russia in order to stop the war.”

This will surely end the Russian war push.

Organisers of the International European Tree Contest have kicked out Russia and awarded Poland victory, not because that country has the best tree, but because Putin bad.

Officials made the announcement Tuesday, awarding the prestigious prize to a 400 year old oak tree in Poland.

The New York Times reported that the organizers of the contest singled out the tree in Poland as being a symbol of hope for refugees fleeing Ukraine.

The organisers also noted that the Russian entry to the contest, a 199 year old oak tree originally planted by Russian writer Ivan Turgenev, was removed because of the war in Ukraine.

The page featuring the tree has been greyed out, making it clear that the entry is no longer a part of the contest.

In a statement, The Tree of the Year organisers wrote “This move is not directed against ordinary Russian women and men. We appreciate all active citizens of the Russian Federation who strive for a free civil society and the protection of nature. However, we cannot stand idly by and watch the unprecedented aggression of the Russian leadership against a neighbouring country.”

“The exclusion of Russia from the competition is a step that must be understood in the context of international efforts to isolate Russia in order to stop the war,” the statement concluded.

This is on a par with Russian cats being banned from international competitions, and is yet another example of utterly moronic moral exhibitionism in the aftermath of the attack on Ukraine now manifesting itself in a very dangerous form of vitriolic Russophobia.

Anyone and everything Russian is up for erasure, including Russian chess players, cosmonauts, musicians, and sports personalities, Russian Air B&Bs, and even Russian teams in FIFA Video games.

    Sky News Interview Cut Short After Mention of Zelensky Posting Soldier With SS Insignia

    Well, this is awkward.

    A Sky News interview with Russian First Deputy Permanent Representative to the United Nations Dmitry Polyanskiy was cut short after mention was made of President Zelensky posting an image of a soldier wearing SS insignia.

    Zelensky posted his Victory Day statement along with a collection of images of Ukrainian soldiers and civilians.

    However, after it was revealed that one of the Ukrainian soldiers was wearing a symbol of the Totenkopf division of the SS, the post was hastily deleted.

    During the interview, Polyanskiy made reference to the controversy, but was quickly cut off after bringing it up.

    “Do you know what it is? It’s an emblem of a German SS division in the Second World War. So he published on the Victory Day an emblem of a fighter of Right Sector [banned in Russia] with this emblem, saying that this is a symbol of [the] fight against Nazism as he sees it,” Polyanskiy said.

    “This was deleted after half an hour but, of course, we have a copy of this… It means that [the] UK now is covering Ukrainian authorities, which display Nazi symbols during the Victory Day,” he added.

    The host of the show seemed eager to prevent Polyanskiy from elaborating any further.

    “And there you have it, the famous freedom of speech in the West,” Polyanskiy subsequently joked on Telegram.

    “Now they think 100 times before inviting Russian diplomats on live broadcast,” he concluded.

    Yes, they may be Nazis, but they’re our Nazis!

    Noam Chomsky: Trump is Only Western Statesman Pushing to End War in Ukraine

    Leftist intellectual Noam Chomsky asserted during a recent interview that there is only “one western statesman of stature” pushing to end the war in Ukraine – Donald Trump.

    The professor of linguistics made the remarks in a recent interview, a clip of which was posted to Twitter by journalist Glenn Greenwald.

    “Well there is, fortunately, one statesman in the United States and Europe…who has made a very sensible statement about how you can solve the crisis, namely by facilitating negotiations instead of undermining them and moving towards establishing some kind of accommodation in Europe,” said Chomsky.

    The author went on to describe a plan first introduced by George H.W. Bush – Partnership for Peace – which would guarantee that NATO would not expand further eastwards and “move towards a world with no military alliances.”

    Chomsky that the only prominent person advocating a “move towards negotiations and diplomacy instead of escalating the war” was “Donald J. Trump.”

    This is not the first time a top leftist has cited Trump as someone whose policies would have stopped a war in the first place or brought it to a swift end.

    As we highlighted last month, Marie Yovanovitch, the former US Ambassador to Ukraine, admitted there would have been no war had Trump remained in power, but that this was a bad thing.

    “I think that Trump would have provided Putin with enough of what he wanted that perhaps he wouldn’t have invaded,” said Yovanovitch.

    A Washington Post article published last month admitted that prominent individuals within NATO want to extend the conflict for as long as possible

    As we reported earlier today, Trump dropped another hint that he is planning to run again in 2024 during a ‘Save America’ rally in Greenwood, Nebraska.
