US Ambassador to the UN called the condition for supporting Italy’s plan for Ukraine

The United States declared its support for any efforts to peacefully resolve the situation in Ukraine. Italy has previously proposed a plan that includes negotiations over “disputed territories”. In Russia, Italy's proposal was criticized

The United States supports any efforts to peacefully resolve the situation in Ukraine, if they support the Ukrainian people. This was stated by US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield, answering a question about the proposal for a peaceful settlement in Ukraine, which Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio handed over to the UN.

“We support any efforts from any side to search for a peaceful settlement in the interests of the Ukrainian people, which would be approved by the Ukrainian people,— said Thomas-Greenfield.

At the same time, she noted that she had not seen the proposal itself, but knew about it.

The newspaper La Repubblica wrote on May 19 that the Italian government had prepared a plan for a peaceful settlement in Ukraine.

The plan includes four stages:

  • ceasefire in Ukraine and demilitarization of the front line under UN supervision;
  • negotiations on the status of Ukraine, which involve the country's accession to the EU, but not joining NATO;
  • a bilateral agreement between Ukraine and Russia on Crimea and Donbass: at the suggestion of the Italian authorities, the “disputed territories” will have full autonomy with the right to independently ensure their security, but sovereignty over the regions will belong to Kyiv;
  • the conclusion of a multilateral agreement on peace and security in Europe, which will cover issues of disarmament and arms control, conflict prevention and confidence-building measures.

According to the plan, this will be followed by the withdrawal of Russian troops from the territory of Ukraine.

Italy also proposes to create an international group that will monitor compliance with the plan (the full list of countries that could join it has not yet been determined, but among them are France, Germany, Turkey, USA, China, Canada, Great Britain, Poland and Israel), and involve the European Union, the UN and other international organizations in this process.

Deputy Chairman of the Security Council Dmitry Medvedev criticized Italy's plan. lie". He called the proposal for the autonomy of Donbass within this country “obvious nonsense”; and “cheap projecting”, but about the autonomy of the Crimea — an insult to Russia.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has previously stated that a diplomatic solution to the conflict is possible only after a ceasefire by Russia and the withdrawal of troops.

Russian President Vladimir Putin named among the necessary conditions ” ;recognition of Russian sovereignty over Crimea, solving the problems of demilitarization and denazification of the Ukrainian state and ensuring its neutral status».

Medvedev called Italy’s peace plan for Ukraine “cheap scheming”

Dmitry Medvedev

The modern West has embraced the “itch of creation” peaceful plans to resolve the crisis in Ukraine, and the Italian proposals, in particular, do not correspond to the interests of Russia and are “cheap schemes”; and “nonsense”. This was stated by Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev in his Telegram.

“The West is seized with the itch to create “peace plans” that should lead to a settlement of the crisis in Ukraine. And it would be fine if it was about preparing options that would somehow take into account the realities. But— no, it's just a pure stream of consciousness of European graphomaniacs, — he wrote.

The politician cited Italy's recent proposals to resolve the crisis as an example and stressed that the Italian plan does not provide for the main interests of Russia. In particular, to the proposal for a neutral status for Ukraine and the country's entry into the EU, Medvedev replied that “all this is a lie.” He called the proposal for the autonomy of Donbass as part of Ukraine “obvious nonsense”; and “cheap projecting”, and the proposal for the autonomy of the Crimea, the deputy chairman of the Security Council considered an insult to Russia.

“There is no point in analyzing further. All this is just an attempt to help Kyiv save at least some face… However, Ukraine itself does not want to negotiate at all. They have long preferred to forget about the Russian draft peace treaty. It was as if he didn't exist at all. Reckoning only on the flow of weapons and money from Western countries, — concluded Medvedev.

In turn, the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin has not yet seen Italy's proposals for a settlement in Ukraine and they hope that they will be brought through diplomatic channels in the near future.

Germany sues Italy at UN over Nazi damage dispute

In its lawsuit, Germany claims that Rome will continue to allow victims of Nazi war crimes to submit compensation requests from Berlin, even though the International Court of Justice ruled in 2012 that it was illegal

Germany filed to the International Court of Justice (ICJ) against Italy due to disputes over compensation for damage caused by the Nazis during World War II, the court said.

“Germany <…> filed an international case against Italy because it (Italy) allegedly failed to respect its (Germany's) jurisdictional immunity as a sovereign state,— The report said.

Germany refers to a 2012 court decision proving that the country has legal immunity from claims in foreign courts from victims of Nazism. However, according to the ruling of the Italian constitutional court of 2014, the obligation to follow the judgment of 2012 depends on the principle of legal protection of fundamental rights in accordance with the constitutional law of the country.

Berlin noted that “the Italian national courts since 2012 have considered a significant number of new claims against Germany in violation of the sovereign immunity of Germany.” In 2014, at least 15 litigation decisions were made regarding claims against Germany due to the “behavior of the German Reich during World War II”, the German lawsuit says.

“In its request, Germany asks the court, in particular, to oblige Italy to guarantee that the German property mentioned in the application will not be put up for public auction until the court decides,” — says in the document. In addition, Berlin wants Rome to give a guarantee to put an end to litigation and fully compensate for the damage already done. axis”, which also included Germany and Japan.

Mussolini was arrested in July 1943, after which the new Italian government concluded a truce with the United States and Great Britain, and also declared war on Germany.

Berlin capitulated on May 9, 1945 at 0:43 Moscow time.

“Our governments have signed agreements of intent regarding bilateral cooperation in the energy sector. At the same time, there is an agreement between Eni and Sonatrach (the energy companies of Italy and Algeria. – “MK”) to increase exports to Italy,” Draghi quotes Euractiv.com.

The Italian Prime Minister added that it was a “significant response” to dependence on Russian gas. At the same time, the agreement with Algeria will not completely solve the problem of gas imports to Italy.

Russia supplies Italy with 38 percent of the volume of gas it needs, Algeria provides 28 percent.

The agreement between Italy and Algeria proposes an increase in the supply of 9 billion cubic meters of gas to the Apennine Peninsula, which will go through the Trans-Mediterranean gas pipeline.

In turn, Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio said that the agreement with Algeria will allow his country “to respond to possible Russian blackmail gas.

In Italy, the amount of seized property reached €900 million , the Netherlands and Latvia reported freezing the assets of Russians” />

Italy seized property from the Russians who fell under the sanctions in the amount of €900 million, Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio said in an interview with Bild.

“Until now, we can talk about a total amount of & nbsp; 900 million. We acted quickly and consistently and will continue to do so in the future,— Di Maio said, noting that Rome is strictly adhering to its sanctions commitments. On March 22, the Italian authorities announced a freezing of assets worth €800 million.

The volume of frozen assets of Russians in the Netherlands rose to €516 million, according to a letter from the Dutch ministers.

The ministers of Italy and France are shocked by the impact of anti-Russian sanctions on the economy of their countries

Russia's response to Western sanctions exceeded the worst fears of officials in the two countries.

The former head of the Ministry of Trade and Crafts of Italy, Paolo Savona, shared on social networks the fears that the trip around the country caused him.

On his Twitter account, he said that the consequences of the imposition of anti-Russian sanctions caused him contradictory feelings.

After visiting a gas station, he admitted that if he previously believed that restrictive measures were directed against Russia, now he believes that they are addressed inside the country.

Meanwhile, the head of the Chamber of Deputies of the Italian Parliament, Robert Fico, on the contrary, calls for tougher measures against Russia, saying that it is necessary to abandon oil purchases in the future.

According to him, sanctions should be extremely tough.

“Required… think about blocking oil imports”, – he said.

French Economy Minister Bruno Le Maire also expressed dissatisfaction with the state of the country.

On the air of the BFMTV channel, he said that due to pressure on Russia due to military special operation in Ukraine is capable of completely cutting off gas supplies from Moscow to Paris, and this will lead to an increase in fuel prices and, ultimately, food.

He said that he feels “uncertainty&#8221 ; due to the likely counter-sanctions of Russia and the behavior of the PRC against this background, which are now unknown to Western leaders.

Le Maire believes that it will be a mistake to answer as if the West knows exactly what he is talking about.

Recall that earlier Le Maire has already stated that France intends to continue the “total economic” the EU war against the Russian Federation and is planning new sanctions against Moscow, which will be discussed at a meeting of the heads of the European Union on March 10-11 in Versailles.

As Topnews wrote earlier, Russia topped the list against the anti-Russian sanctions imposed against it.

Bloomberg learned about Italy’s request to the EU to exclude the energy sector from sanctions

Bloomberg: Italy asked the EU to remove energy from the sanctions package against Russia Rome fears that sanctions against Russian energy will have the opposite effect. Also, countries, including France and Germany, fear a negative effect on the banking and raw materials sectors of the economy

Several European countries have expressed fears at once that the sanctions that could be imposed against Russia in the event of its invasion of Ukraine, their economies will be affected, writes Bloomberg. In particular, Italy asked the EU to exclude the energy sector from the sanctions package.

According to the agency, Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi held talks with partners in the European Union on how to reduce the impact of sanctions on key sectors of the Italian economy, including, possibly, removing energy from restrictions. In January, Rome sent an unofficial message to the European Commission outlining its concerns about the possible backlash of the sanctions.

In addition to the energy sector, Italy also fears for its luxury goods market, writes Bloomberg. The authorities have asked the EU to develop a compensation mechanism to help soften the blow.

In addition, Italy, as well as Germany, are trying to protect their banking sectors, the agency said. Instead of sectoral sanctions, Rome proposes to impose restrictions on individuals. Germany, France, the Netherlands and Poland are among the EU countries that are concerned about the consequences of the sanctions on sectors such as energy, raw materials and financial institutions, adds Bloomberg.

The day before, US Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen said that the global consequences of Western sanctions against Russia in the event of an escalation in Ukraine are inevitable. “Of course, we want Russia to bear the biggest costs,” — she said.— But we recognize that sanctions will have global implications.

She specifically noted the likely impact of sanctions on energy markets and stressed that Washington and the EU are working to ensure Europe has oil and gas supplies.

>

At the end of January, the Financial Times reported that the EU and the UK, with US support, are developing sanctions against new Russian gas projects. The newspaper noted that this is the first time that Europe, where 40% of gas is supplied from Russia, admitted the possibility of hitting this sector.

At the same time, the publication wrote that Western companies that invest in to Russian gas projects— for example, BP, Total and Shell.

WSJ assessed Berlusconi’s chances to become President of Italy

WSJ assessed the chances of Silvio Berlusconi to become the new president of Italy According to the adviser, Berlusconi will decide by mid-January whether he will run for the presidency. Analysts doubted the likelihood of his election success

Victory of the former Prime Minister of Italy, leader of the Forward Italy! party; Silvio Berlusconi in the first three rounds of the presidential election is extremely unlikely, the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal estimated. For this, the politician will need the support of the center-left opposition to him, the publication points out.

The term of office of the incumbent head of state, Sergio Mattarella, expires in February. The Italian President is elected by secret ballot for a seven-year term by an electoral college consisting of members of both houses of parliament and representatives of the regions. In the first three rounds of voting, two-thirds of the votes are required to be elected. Analysts believe that the only one who has a chance to get such a majority is & mdash; current prime minister Mario Draghi. To win in the fourth and subsequent rounds, 50% plus one vote is enough. Berlusconi will have such an opportunity, writes The Wall Street Journal, but Draghi's chances will also increase. The first round of voting is expected at the end of January.

According to the newspaper, the leaders of the Brothers of Italy parties are ready to support Berlusconi. and 'League of the North' George Meloni and Matteo Salvini, but some of their representatives may vote for other candidates due to inter-party differences.

Berlusconi did not officially announce his intention to run for president, but the media began to make such assumptions on the eve of the elections. So, in early December, the British edition of The Guardian, citing representatives of his party, wrote that the ex-prime minister was “ definitely inspired '' on this account. At the same time, Berlusconi's advisor told The Wall Street Journal that he would finally decide whether to run for office in mid-January.

Draghi said in December that the government would cope without him as prime minister. This statement was interpreted as an allusion to the politician's presidential ambitions, the newspaper notes.

Doubts that Berlusconi will be able to win the presidential election, expressed some experts. “I don’t believe that Berlusconi will succeed, but it’s hard to guess with him, because he refutes all predictions,” “& mdash; said Daniel Albertazzi, professor at the University of Surrey in the UK. In his opinion, regardless of the outcome of the elections, the politician will continue his career. 'The end will come when Berlusconi is underground', & mdash; believes Albertazzi.

Paolo Natale, a professor at the University of Milan, believes that his own media could become an obstacle to the presidency for Berlusconi. “ All these media assets for his family brought all kinds of difficulties when he was prime minister, but for the president such investments will be beyond acceptability, '' & mdash; he said.

Berlusconi is 85 years old. He served as Chairman of the Italian Council of Ministers from 1994 to 1995, 2001 to 2006 and 2008 to 2011. In 2019, he became a member of the European Parliament.

As The Wall Street Journal notes, the ex-prime minister has appeared before the court more than 70 times, and is still being charged in several cases. In particular, the politician was suspected of tax crimes, corruption, connections with the mafia and even sexual relations with a minor.

Recently, Berlusconi has been experiencing health problems, over the past year he was hospitalized several times.

EU travel recommendations may impede Americans and Russians

EU travel recommendations may impede Americans and Russians

Tourists are seen at a cafe in St. Mark’s Square a day before Italy and neighboring EU countries open up borders for the first time since the coronavirus outbreak, in Venice, Italy, June 14, 2020.

The European Union is planning to reopen borders for visitors outside of the bloc starting in July, but officials say reviews are underway for the status of the coroanvirus in countries and a document laying out criteria that could keep Americans, Russians and Brazilians out.

The 27-nation bloc is eager to restart tourism, which has taken a massive hit during the coronavirus pandemic, but fears of second spikes have so far only allowed for partial and patchy reopening of borders with multiple health and security curbs.

Draft recommendations from the EU’s current presidency Croatia, seen by Reuters, suggest allowing non-EU nationals in from countries with stable or decreasing infections, and those with a “comparable or better epidemiological situation” than Europe.

That epidemiological criteria is defined as between 16-20 new cases of infection reported over 14 days per 100,000 people.

Nations would also be assessed for their records on testing, contact-tracing and treatment, reliability of data, and reciprocal travel arrangements for EU residents, according to the document, to be debated by envoys in Brussels on Wednesday.

Based on the latest update by the bloc’s European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC), the proposed methodology could rule out travelers from the United States and Mexico, most of South America, South Africa, Russia, Iran, Saudi Arabia and Afghanistan, among others.

The United States, where President Donald Trump banned European visitors at the start of the crisis, has by far the highest number of deaths and cases in the world. [nL4N2AY3AS]

EU diplomats stressed, however, that the travel criteria could still change and that the recommendations will be non-binding.

“It seems there is a lot of wishful thinking in these recommendations. They are also causing much controversy. July 1 may slip and many countries may go their own way in any case,” a diplomat said of the proposal by the European Commission.

The proposal, aimed at promoting a coordinated approach, would cover Europe’s Schengen zone of normally-invisible borders that brings together most EU states as well as Iceland, Norway, Switzerland and Lichtenstein.

A major achievement of post-World War Two European integration, it has suffered a major setback in recent months as countries brought back border controls to contain the virus.

Eva Panarese, from Italy’s Tuscany, used to dream about moving to Sweden. Her mother, who is Swedish, would recount stories about her home country when she was little.

Panarese thought it sounded like the perfect place to settle and raise a family. Two years ago, she made it happen, moving with her husband, Ilario Ripoli, and their two children, to Lund, a university city in the south of the country. Their home is pretty idyllic, she says.

“It’s a beautiful natural area. We have the beach five minutes away. A lake just across the road. So, it’s really a paradise.”

Eva Panarese from Italy, who lives in Sweden with her family

“It’s a beautiful natural area. We have the beach five minutes away. A lake just across the road. So, it’s really a paradise.”

But in late February, things changed. By then, countries across Europe were grappling with the novel coronavirus, closing their borders and heading into lockdown. But in Sweden, little changed. That lax response to the pandemic has led some foreigners, including Panarese, to rethink life in Sweden — some have even chosen to relocate.  

Panarese came back from a medical conference in Italy in February, and shortly afterward, her husband, who suffers from respiratory disease, and their son both became ill. At this stage, Italy, which would end up having one of the highest death rates in the world from the coronavirus, was only starting to wake up to the impact of the disease.

Panarese worried she might have contracted the virus during her trip and passed it on to her family. As her son’s condition improved, Ripoli got worse, and he was taken to hospital. It was here that Panarese became truly alarmed. No one in the hospital was wearing a mask, she says, and nobody offered them a test for COVID-19.

“They didn’t know what to do. They didn’t know how to help us. They did not want to do the test — not on me because I was asymptomatic, which I can understand — but not even on my husband.”

The Swedish government appealed to its citizens to maintain social distancing and to stay home if they were sick. Gatherings of over 50 people were banned, and companies arranged for staff to begin working from home. But unlike the rest of Europe, Swedish shops, restaurants, gyms and schools remained open.

For Panarese, it created a dilemma. Under Swedish law, children are obliged to go to school, and keeping them home can lead to intervention by child protection services. But Panarese’s own children were terrified they would contract the virus at school and infect their father.

“They were feeling a little bit like, ‘Oh my gosh, if I go to school and then I come back, I can kill my father.’”

Eva Panarese from Italy, who lives in Sweden with her family

“They were feeling a little bit like, ‘Oh my gosh, if I go to school and then I come back, I can kill my father.’”

Panarese defied the law and kept her children, who are 12 and 15, at home. But the experience has changed how she views the country. And she’s not alone.

Keith Begg from Limerick, Ireland, moved to Stockholm for love seven years ago. As the virus spread, Begg heard from family members back home about the strict lockdown Ireland was undertaking. Irish friends told him they felt a moral obligation to shut down the country in order to protect their elderly and more vulnerable people.

Begg says the sense of national unity he was hearing about in his native country seemed absent in his adopted city, where the attitude was practically “hedonistic.”

“There were packed bars, packed restaurants and cafes. The attitude here was just simply, ‘Sure, we might as well go out because we’re going to get the virus anyway.’”

Keith Begg from Limerick, Ireland, who lives in Sweden with his husband

“There were packed bars, packed restaurants and cafes. The attitude here was just simply, ‘Sure, we might as well go out because we’re going to get the virus anyway.’”

Begg’s concern was initially very much in the minority. Support for the Swedish government’s approach in March was high. Frustrated, Begg set up a focus group of medical experts, teachers, parents and human rights activists to counteract the government’s stance. But his actions have come at a cost: Friends on Facebook sent him hate messages, while former colleagues blocked him. Begg says he has lost nearly all of his Swedish friends, some he has known for over 20 years.

“They think I’m crazy. So many of us expats have been seen as hysterical. We’ve had every expletive thrown at us.”

Begg believes the Swedish government’s strategy is driven primarily by economics, and the result, he says, is a society which is both “morally and ethically bankrupt.”

He has been socially isolating with his husband, Cristian Pettersson, who’s Swedish, since March.

Allyson Plumberg, who’s originally from Minneapolis, and her family have also been sheltering in place in Lund. They moved there two years ago when her husband, a physicist, was offered a job at the local university. At first, Plumberg says she loved the simplicity of life in Sweden with its strong emphasis on family-friendly policies. But she says the pandemic has shown her a different side of Swedish society.

Like Panarese, some of Plumberg’s friends have come into conflict with the education authorities for wanting to keep their children out of school for fear they will infect an at-risk relative.

“It’s really ironic that Sweden, which has this philosophy of equality for all, is being so deeply undermined for families right now during the pandemic.”

Allyson Plumberg, originally from Minneapolis, whose family plans to leave Sweden

“It’s really ironic that Sweden, which has this philosophy of equality for all, is being so deeply undermined for families right now during the pandemic.”

When Plumberg and her two small children go to the local grocery store, they are often met with stares, she says. They are the only customers wearing face masks. Plumberg makes them herself as she cannot find any on sale locally.

While support for the government’s approach had been markedly high, new opinion polls show attitudes are changing as the death rate has climbed. Sweden currently has one of the highest death rates per capita in the world, and recent polls show public support at less than 50%.

Chief epidemiologist Anders Tegnell, who is credited with driving Sweden’s strategy, said in an interview with SR, the Swedish state broadcaster, that too many people had died. But he did not apologize for the government’s tactics. Nearly half of those deaths have occurred in Swedish care homes.

Anna Douglas, who is from Scotland and supports the Swedish approach, believes that long-standing problems in nursing homes contributed to those deaths. She says the way the homes are run, and in particular, how they employ staff are key issues, with many workers on zero-hours contracts — meaning they have no guarantee of work. 

“You have a high exchange of people. You have people who are unwilling to be off sick if they are not feeling a hundred percent, and therefore, they come to work and potentially can spread this disease.”

Douglas says her family back in Scotland was worried when they saw Sweden defying the lockdown trend. She worried, too, but she believes the government is taking a more sustainable approach and looking at how to live with a pandemic in the longer term. The Swedish strategy empowers people to take responsibility for themselves and others, she says.

“I think mostly it’s treating people as adults. Giving people the responsibility to take judgments and decisions themselves. This isn’t something that the government can fix for us; it’s something that we all have to do together.“

“I think mostly it’s treating people as adults. Giving people the responsibility to take judgments and decisions themselves. This isn’t something that the government can fix for us; it’s something that we all have to do together.“

Laura Servant, who is originally from Paris, agrees. She moved to Stockholm less than a year ago with her husband and two young children. She was relieved to be in Sweden and not France when the virus spread through Europe. Paris imposed one of the toughest lockdowns worldwide, and Servant says the stress of being stuck indoors for so long has had a severe impact on people’s mental health that is not being sufficiently acknowledged. She says she appreciates the freedom she has.

“I am feeling very blessed and very lucky to have this freedom. If I want to go to the park, I can go to the park without fearing policemen arresting me and asking me why I’m here.”

But Servant does not want to see visitors from other parts of Europe coming to experience those freedoms. She says people in Sweden are being generally cautious, adding that she’s still unable to visit her family back home.

“No, I don’t think it’s fair for them to think they can come here and do tourism, because I won’t be able to visit my family in a long time.”

Plumberg will be seeing her family sooner than expected. She is planning on moving back to the US this summer. Plumberg says although her husband’s contract in Sweden is coming to an end, that’s not the only reason they’re leaving: The Swedish attitude to the pandemic changed how they viewed the Nordic country and their future life there.

Begg has also begun applying for jobs back in Ireland. He says despite having Swedish citizenship, he can no longer imagine living in Stockholm long term. 

For Panarese, it’s an emotional and financial struggle. Her family bought a house for the first time in their lives, she says, and leaving now will lead to a considerable economic headache. But Panarese admits she is looking across the border to neighboring Denmark and seriously contemplating moving there. Sweden was the country she thought she would grow old and die in, she says, but now that no longer seems possible.

Italy is among several countries that began easing social distancing restrictions on Monday, including reopening factories, construction sites, hairdressers and libraries.

Others included Spain, Nigeria, Azerbaijan, Malaysia and Lebanon. And, several states in the United States began loosening lockdown restrictions.

More than 3.52 million people have been reported to be infected by the coronavirus globally, and more than 240,000 have died.

The move by several countries to loosen restrictions suggests that the rate of infections may be starting to flatten.

Related discussion: Pandemic exposes health inequities in vulnerable communities

New Zealand and Australia said discussions are underway for the potential creation of a “travel bubble” between the two countries and in South Korea, shoppers and travelers crowded malls and beaches on the first long weekend since the country began easing curbs last month.

But, COVID-19 continues to cost lives, sicken millions and force physical distancing. And we may only be beginning to see the psychological impacts of the pandemic.

As part of a weekly series taking your questions to the experts, The World’s Elana Gordon moderated a discussion with Dr. Karestan Koenen, professor of psychiatric epidemiology at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health

Britain said Monday that China has questions to answer over the information it shared about the novel coronavirus outbreak. But British Defense Secretary Ben Wallace refused to comment on reports that the so-called Five Eyes consortium of US, British, Canadian, Australian and New Zealand intelligence services had accused Beijing of a cover-up. The rhetoric from the US and others comes as an internal Chinese report warns Beijing is facing a rising wave of hostility in the wake of the coronavirus outbreak and that global anti-China sentiment is at its highest since the 1989 Tiananmen Square crackdown.

Italy slowly emerging from lockdown

Italy, among the countries hardest hit by the coronavirus and with one of the longest lockdowns in Europe, began easing lockdown restrictions today, allowing about 4.5 million people to return to work. Spain, Nigeria, Azerbaijan, Malaysia, Israel, Tunisia and Lebanon were also among countries easing some restrictions.

Economist Thomas Piketty: Pandemic exposes the ‘violence of social inequality’

French economist Thomas Piketty’s new book, “Capital and Ideology,” which came out in March, examines the history of policies and political systems that have sustained economic inequality — and how the world might move toward a fairer economic system. He spoke to The World’s host Marco Werman about the inequalities the pandemic has exposed and suggested Portugal as example of one country that is looking soberly at the pandemic.

“I think at this stage, you know, everybody is trying to do something. So, some countries have initiatives like — in Portugal, they decided two weeks ago to have a temporary regularization of illegal migrants so at least they can provide income support for people in the street and access to health facilities and some kind of legal status. Actually, during this time of the pandemic, most of the countries in Europe did not do that. And I think, you know, it would be useful.”

Warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico raise alarm as US storm season approaches

As storm season begins in the southeastern US, scientists are casting a wary eye on the warm waters in the Gulf of Mexico. Tornado season in the US generally runs from March through June and hurricane season follows right on its heels. Warm waters in the Gulf provide “a basic fuel” to these massive storms, explains atmospheric scientist Kevin Trenberth, a distinguished scholar at the US National Center for Atmospheric Research.

During social distancing, artists collaborate on ‘Long Distance Art’

Long Distance Art, which launched this week, is an international, multidisciplinary collaborative art series that emerged from the Social Distancing Festival. Artists can inquire about collaborating with another artist they’ve seen on the site, or have the creator pair them up with another artist of his choosing.

For online art, I’ve become a matchmaker,” joked creator Nick Green. “I don’t want to be too instructive. So for the most part, I tell [the collaborators], ‘You two are brilliant artists. Go. Do whatever. I’m happy with anything you come up with.’”

Most leaders and medical experts say life won’t get back to relative normal until we get a vaccine to prevent COVID-19. It could take a while, so some scientists and ethicists are proposing a controversial method of testing. Also, Russia’s Prime Minister Mikhail Mishustin has tested positive for the coronavirus and is temporarily stepping down from his position as he recovers. Plus, the British rock band Queen has updated the classic rock ballad, “We Are The Champions,” to honor health care workers around the world.

Couple months ago, I was in the city on a date with a single ting
You’d prolly know her, and I never show, and she told me how she get security
But I always tell her I’m a hood nigga and this famous shit is new to me
Been down with the leg walk, old Versace for the jeans
I understand how my plug talk, I got Cuban in my genes
Never cubic on my neck, I got diamonds that’ll bling
I got shooters that’ll blitz, and all you’ll hear is dirty screams
Give me neck, give me neck, uh, trade my girl for a jet, uh
Trade her soul for some pocket change
Want the world, nothin’ less

INNA – No Help lyrics

No no, I don’t make a difference
Say what you want about me, así, así
I don’t need no permission
I run the night from Belize to Italy

I got a Coca-Cola but I don’t want no chaser
Drinks on me, you know how that works
Everybody wanna see what I’m about to do first
Watch me and do not disturb

Ooh, I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Ooh, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help
When I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Yeah, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help

While you’re all on my body
Sé que quieres de mí, de mí, de mí
Baby, Imma be honest
Estoy pensando en tí, en tí, en tí

I got a Coca-Cola but I don’t want no chaser
Drinks on me, you know how that works
Everybody wanna see what I’m about to do first
Watch me and do not disturb

Ooh, I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Ooh, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help
When I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Yeah, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help

Eyes on my body, you want it, you want it
But this is the night that I’m gonna be on my own
Hands off my body, my body, don’t hurry up
Cause this is the night that I’m gonna be on my own

Ooh, I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Ooh, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help
When I get by myself, can’t describe how good I feel
Yeah, I do me so well, you know I don’t need no help

Future – RACKS BLUE Lyrics

[Intro]
Zaytoven!

[Chorus]
I got the right ice
I can’t do wrong
I got the black A.P
The Patek a two-tone
I done went colorblind
I’ma get my shine on, yeah
Know how I’m feelin’
The racks blue

[Hook]
What I’m supposed to do when these racks blue?
Ooh, ooh
What I’m supposed to do when these racks blue?
Ooh, ooh
I shoulda gave ’em dog food and went to get neutered
I shoulda never got caught up with a cougar

[Verse 1]
Way too clever, ain’t too jealous
Ain’t gon’ let ’em, I never settle
Life as a rebel, I’m gettin’ better
Bringin’ pressure, I get pleasure
Call Berettas, no vendetta
I know my heart belongs to the ghetto
Responsibilities without humility
Longevity, car from Italy
Fuck my enemies, get my salary
Fuck envy, end in tragedy
I’m your majesty, that’s how I gotta be
Get more liberty, should be proud of me

[Hook]
What I’m supposed to do when these racks blue?
Ooh, ooh
What I’m supposed to do when these racks blue?

[Verse 2]
Comin’ from poverty, hittin’ the lottery
Hottest commodity, the way that it had to be
Ain’t no comparin’ me, you thinkin’ charity
I’m thinkin’ integrity, and worryin’ ’bout the legacy
That I went through, thinkin’ vicariously
I’m in a spacecoupe, that’s momentarily
I’ve been dead broke, treated unfairly
Never break me, love or hate me
She did forsake me, she wanna taste me
And she showed it, gave her the blue face

[Hook]
What I’m supposed to do when these racks blue?
Ooh, ooh
What I’m supposed to do when these racks blue?
Ooh, ooh
What I’m supposed to do when these racks blue?
Ooh, ooh

BTS – Airplane Pt.2 (English Translation) lyrics

An odd kid
He sang as if he was breathing
Wherever was fine
He only wanted to do music
Only singing
The thing that made his heart beat
Although he walked down the only path

It’s not easy
Failure and frustration
Words that someone gave me after calling me, exhausted, to stop
You’re a singing star
You’re a singing star
But I see no star…
After some years passed by

(We still) Sky high, sky fly, sky dope
(We still) Same try, same scar, same work
(We still) Wherever in the world we go
(We still) We work in our hotel rooms
(I still) One day it works out too well, then the next day I’m completely screwed
(I still) Who should I live as today, Kim Namjoon or RM?
25, I still don’t know how to live well
So, today as well, we just go

We goin’ from NY to Cali
London to Paris
Wherever we go, party
El Mariachi
El Mariachi
El Mariachi

We goin’ from Tokyo, Italy

Wherever in the world, I will sing
El Mariachi
El Mariachi
El Mariachi
El Mariachi

Every day above the clouds, Every day above the clouds
My feel above the clouds, Check it above the clouds
My chemistry with the clouds, All day with the clouds
The fun of riding the clouds, Fade in looking at the clouds
You don’t know maybe
Thanks to years of flying
I got a few hundred thousand mileage
It’s time to console you who couldn’t make it
I’ll give you the flight points as a present
Love the airplane mode, Turn off all the concerns
No matter what anyone says
I’ll just continue to keep the first
And look at the night sky as it fits my place right now

I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
Yeah how to stop
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
Yeah how to take some rest
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
Yeah how to fail
I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know, I don’t know
I got fed up by you cutely bragging about your money on TV
My passport is about to die from overwork
You’re the ones who benefitted from media, bwahahaha
Hey, hey you’re the ones who’re better at playing celebrities
We’re still the same as back then
Woo!

We goin’ from Mexico City

We goin’ from Tokyo, Italy

Nyck Caution – See You In Hell lyrics

(Intro)
It’s fucking Nyck Caution you filthy mothafuckerz

Most of y’all don’t get it and most of y’all ain’t shit
Only hard post at it, shit bizarre and I’m sick
Don’t pull my card when I bet it
I’m pushing all of my chips
Only trust a bitch as far as I can throw her!

(Verse)
And I really don’t lift Still got the weight on my shoulders
I ain’t ask for all this, But I won’t budge, won’t crack I won’t trip
I don’t care what it was just know that it
Is what it is, word to kirk in the clique
Shows lit, tell the bitch don’t come to back stage, if she ain’t flashing no tits
I told this bitch I’m cold as shit Im over it
No distractions Im focusing, I made it happen
Ive been living in the moment since
I got a little bit of gap and I set up shop
They ask me “How did I get hot? How’d I get on top?
I invested in myself, I don’t gotta spend a lot
Any good investment take a couple years, Hell strong
Now Im bout to make a Milly off of penny stock
Bit coin, Nyck coined the phrase
If you a bitch boi, don’t join the craze
Im lit boy big shot making big noise
You get smoked real quick like a thin joint
I ain’t doing no shows anymore for the love
Do a set it should take for the invoice
(Lorraine Bracco: Who the hell do you think you are?)
Y’all already know the name motherfucker
Its the N-Y-C-K-C-A-U-T-I-O-N, y’all know how I do
Used to be involved now Im mentally removed
With you and everything that you do
Bada boom bada bing gottas couple of guineas from Italy
In the restaurant, low-key playing a scene
Real mob-ties now I’m really in the bathroom
Underneath the seat, If you trip, well I gotta peek

(Outro)
Most of y’all don’t get it and most of y’all ain’t shit
Shit bizzarre and Im sick
Ill see you in hell (X11)

Vacation in Hell coming to a city near you

Big Flip Papi – Money On The Way lyrics

Verse 1
It’s Okayi got money on the way
Chef it bag it up, yeah we hungry round the way
We do it real right, round the clock all night
That hustles in my blood, can’t get it out my life
G5 whips the color of rose gold
He fly switch, the phantom to the rose
Bezel on the Rollie uh, looking so bold
Back hammer out on homie, guaranteed your son will fold
Oh forgive you me you don’t know?
Whoaaa even Black Rob would say you got to go
No! Big Flip Papi that nigga
Call me Michael Jackson, with a million dollar zipper
Tipper, I fell in love with a stripper
Got money on the way, and she knows that I’m a hit her

Hook
It’s Okay I got money on the way
Cop it off the lot got money on the way
It’s okay I got money on the way
Pop that Ciroc got money on the way
It’s Okay I got money on the way
Money, Money, got money on the way
It’s Okay I got money on the way
Drop them checks, got money on the way

Verse 2
It’s Okay I left the trap to the youngings
They don’t play, steam the Mac if you fronting
Flee dropping checks, and a nigga came from nothing
Key round my neck, go getter, I ain’t stunting
They see my respect, so they know I ain’t bluffing
All them years locked up top, now I’m worth something
Villas, yachts, double shots at the bar
My hitters pop, licking shots at you frauds
And we always got back up, when we fall
Got money on the way, yeah, it’s knocking at my door
Flew to Italy shopped at designer stores
Bought her so many bags she ain’t even want more
I’m living good now, no doubts, so sure
Body bags at money banks, looking like a morgue
She bounce to the beat, ass dropping to the floor
Her money on the way
You make it rain, we make it pour

Hook
It’s Okay I got money on the way
Cop it off the lot got money on the way
It’s okay I got money on the way
Pop that Ciroc got money on the way
It’s Okay I got money on the way
Money, Money, got money on the way
It’s Okay I got money on the way
Drop them checks, got money on the way

Baby I love you I thought you knew this
Stop getting angry, stop all the madness
We meant to be, look how long we lasted
Sadness, I ain’t eat in days like i’m fasting
Blasted, I wannna be with you ‘till my casket
I’m just disappointed in your actions
Then you get upset in my reactions
To be honest babe i’m just passing
We were doing straight and now we’re slanted

[Chorus]
I want you in my life girl fuck a solo
All the arguments and fights I can’t do it no more
You asked am I right and I really don’t know
You said I can be replaced baby that’s a low blow
I want you in my life girl fuck a solo
All the arguments and fights I can’t do it no more
You asked am I right and I really don’t know
You said I can be replaced baby that’s a low blow

[Verse 2]
Baby I understand your mental I need you to know
I got work to get done I got the shows on the road
Secure the bag so we can take a trip to Italy
I know i’m a pain so i’m confused to why you into me
I guess this is love and i’m certain that it is
I see you got baby fever one day we should have some kids
We in love why we fighting we just need to face it
It’s a marathon you last longer when you pace it
I just want you to kno-o-ow, I just want us to gro-o-ow
When we be fighting I feel so low tho
Are we gon’ last I don’t know no more, I don’t know no more
Put your foot on the gas fuck a stop sign go (yeah)
I think we thinking too much lets just go with the flow

[Chorus 2]
I want you in my life girl fuck a solo
The arguments and fights I can’t do it no more
You asked am I right and I really don’t know
You said I can be replaced baby that’s a low blow (yeah)

[Verse 3]
Last verse was before the breakup
Still wondering if we gon make up
Can’t sleep girl nah I gotta stay up
I miss the nights when we used to cake up
Used to text “good morning” now I get a GM
Washed up rappers in your fucking dm
Still wondering if you went to see him
Stayed out ‘till the morning after fucking pm
You got back in the morning, i’m talking six in the morning
Our connection got boring
You gon’ make me glow up and go and cop me a foreign
You been sleeping on me lately girl it sound like snoring (yeah)
Used to be my baby now I call you my ex
Them basketball players only want you for sex
Them internet niggas look at you as a check
Girl I loved your ass to death treated you with respect
Took you to the islands girl that came from the heart
I ain’t really feel the love I was doing my part
It’s a whole list of shit I don’t know where to start
Go and find another man girl you cute and you smart

Keep the Draco case an emergency (grr, grat)
Ridin’ ’round the city, sippin’ a tea, packin’ the heat, niggas that lookin’ for me (lookin’ for)

Run to the money, we tryna get fitted (run to the money)
I clear my mind and I had a vision (I had a vision)
And then I arrive with twenty-five bitches (then they arrive)
We sell out the whole facility
Not likin’ your vibe, your energy (vibe)
I came from the pot with Kimberly (pot)

Yo, these niggas be lyin’ about loyalty (lyin’)
Get on my knees, prayin’ to God to cover me

Kodak Black – Talk About It Lyrics

[Intro: Kodak Black]
Aye, she know I be runnin’ it, too
Lil’ shawty know I’m full of love
She know I’m bullshittin’
Aye, King, stop playin’, boy, turn the light on in here

[Verse 1: Kodak Black]
She know I’m bullshittin’, she know I’m running the game
Lil’ shawty know I’m selling dreams, she buyin’ it anyway
Start some beef with me, boy, it’ll be over any day
And my plug come from Italy, yeah he keep me paid
Everyday I’m sippin’ on remedy, yeah I keep that drink
They need to free my dogs literally ’cause they in a cage
I fuck with youngins sometimes
You straight, but you got crooked ways
Life’s a gamble, crushin’ [?] my ace of spades
Know I used to fuck with [?] ’til I heard he gay
I heard a nigga stuck a broom right up his dirty ass
And, I be on a molly sippin’ [?]
And, I don’t like nobody, so get out my face
And, I be out here wilin’, bitch, I’m young and violent
Aye, I get out my [?], I get out my lane
I be wearing Venus, I get out my space
The Devil, he be creepin’, get him out my space
I’m slidin’ wit’ my toast, but it’ll get you baked
And, I don’t need a holster when it’s on my waist
Yeah, I’m a hell raiser, but I’m heaven made
I’m a Gemeni, so I got 7 ways
And I poured the lean up in my [lemonade?]
I use this shit to my advantage, call it 7 days
And I stack it like a sandwich wit’ no mayonnaise
I spent some time wearin’ [?], but I don’t ever see

[Verse 2: Humble Haitian]
[?] casino while my niggas play spades
Niggas be like bitches, they be throwin’ shade
Bitch, get out my face, don’t like them anyway
Bitch, I’m gettin’ money, no [?], and I got laid
I’m like a horse on hay, I’m talking Mary Jane
Let my [?] keep that heat, but I’m in [?]
Nigga come ’round playin’, snipers make you hit the floor
Stay strong, nigga
Bitch, I’m on my 10 toes

[Verse 3: CBE]
From a nigga, call it [?]
Through FedEx, sell it on Ebay
My goons goin’ crazy, they goin’ insane
Mention my name, I’m aimin’ at yo’ brain
Far from [dual lanes?] we are not the same
Took a nigga bitch, he ain’t seen the hoe since
That fed don’t make dollars, they don’t make cents
[?] in the head with the llama, call it common sense

Talib Kweli – Heads Up Eyes Open (feat. Rick Ross & Yummy Bingham) (On The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon) (Live)

[Intro: Talib Kweli]
Take it to the top
Yea, that’s where we at with it
Take it to the top
Just cause you are a character
Don’t mean you have character
We taking stock right now
You ready? Let’s go

[Verse 1: Talib Kweli]
A wise man know what he know and what he doesn’t
If he’s not really sure what he’s saying, he don’t discuss it
A righteous man walks the earth without judgment
And loves his enemies enough to deliver justice
A pious man relies on religion for his direction
At times he introspective, but his biblehood never questioned
A dying man will make a confession, try to get into heaven
Thinking his lifestyle is blocking his blessing
A violent man will stock up on weapons and go to war for his
Get post-traumatic stress disorder, become an officer
A man of peace uses his words in different mediums
He’ll bleed for his beliefs practicing civil disobedience
An honest man knows only liars are scared of the truth
His word is his bond, but his action’s always the proof
A faithful man never need evidence to believe
But still he gotta work for the blessings that he receives
Let’s go

[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
In what you don’t see or understand
But the picture is so much bigger
Than what we could even imagine
It’s hard to feel better
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
Put your faith into action
Heads up and eyes open

[Verse 2: Rick Ross]
Top tier niggas blossomed in the basement
All the nights that we were lacking those refreshments
Rain down, thunder storm with the flows
Articulate with the bounce, now I’m back like I’m Derrick Rose
Once the one on the bench with the snotty nose
Nefertiti would hold me when I was cold
Communion Sunday, my twenties went in the bowl
Forgive me lord for them bitches the night before
Business deals and the Bentleys I can’t afford
Gotta be the example for children to do their chores
Blowing weed smoke on the cover of The Source
Rolling Stones would’ve thought I was the boss
Fallen soldier on his own so we march
Roll up a bag of that weed, therefore I spark
Recite the Quran, I’m in the dark
Devil knocking on my door, he like a narc

[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
In what you don’t see or understand
But the picture is so much bigger
Than what we could even imagine
It’s hard to feel better
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
Put your faith into action
Heads up and eyes open

[Verse 3: Talib Kweli]
No excuses, if I start it then I’ll see it through
God is what I see in you, so you might as well believe in you
Think what you see on TV’s true? The media deceiving you
They misrepresenting, misquoting then they misleading you
Belief is a funny thing, in case you’re wondering
If they want the ring, they coming for the throne like they the sons of kings
These average rappers is acting up for the dough
Yea I tell you what I believe, but I back it up with what I know
It’s the facts versus the facts simile, your raps killing me
My last victory was great moments in Black history
I celebrated with a bottle I just brought back from Italy
And some loud, I got super packs like I backed Hillary
Lost in desire, I walked through the devil’s fire
I inspire the resurrection of kings like Hezekiah
The trust you put in me to be a beast with this rhyming
That’s where the rubber meets the road and where your faith meets science
Let’s go

[Chorus: Yummy Bingham]
Sometimes it’s hard to believe
In what you don’t see or understand
But the picture is so much bigger
Than what we could even imagine
It’s hard to feel better
When the weight of the world make you feel sadder
Put your faith into action
Heads up and eyes open

[Outro: Talib Kweli & Yummy Bingham]
Take it to the top, take it to the top
Take it to the top, take it to the top
Take it to the top, take it to the top
