    Black Sea navy HQ on fire after Ukraine missile strike & UN official suggests "systematic torture" perpetrated by Russia

    enSeptember 22, 2023

    Podcast Summary

    • Recent attacks in Ukraine and Mother's Day GiftsUkraine faces ongoing conflict with Russia, causing damage and casualties. For Mother's Day, consider lab-grown diamonds from Blue Nile or handmade bouquets and discounted gifts from 1-800-Flowers.

      There are significant developments in both the conflict in Ukraine and opportunities for Mother's Day gifts. Regarding Ukraine, there have been recent attacks on the Russian Black Sea Fleet headquarters in Sevastopol, resulting in damage and casualties. Ukrainian forces have also launched assaults on several villages in the eastern Donetsk region. Meanwhile, for Mother's Day, Blue Nile offers beautiful lab-grown diamonds for special moments, while 1-800-Flowers provides handmade bouquets, sweet treats, gourmet food, and unique gifts with a limited-time discount. The Telegraph podcast discusses the situation in Ukraine, including the mysterious deaths of British volunteers and allegations of torture.

    • Ukraine's President Announces Plans to Retake Two Cities and Manufacture Weapons with USUkraine's President Zelensky seeks to retake two cities during his US visit, intends to manufacture weapons, and receives continued support from Canada and the international community despite tensions with Poland and the loss of British volunteers.

      Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced plans to retake two cities during his second wartime visit to Washington, D.C., while also announcing Ukraine's intention to manufacture weapons with the US. The visit also included a stop in Canada, where Prime Minister Justin Trudeau pledged continued support for Ukraine. Tensions between Ukraine and Poland arose over the supply of Ukrainian grain to the Polish market, but it is not expected to significantly impact the support for Ukraine in the war. Meanwhile, two British military volunteers, Daniel Burke and Jordan Chadwick, lost their lives while fighting in Ukraine. The situation between Ukraine and its neighboring countries remains complex, but the international community continues to stand firm in support of Ukraine's sovereignty.

    • Two Volunteers Found Dead in Ukraine Raise ConcernsTwo British volunteers, Daniel Burke and Jordan Chadwick, were found dead in Ukraine with unclear circumstances. Speculation includes disputes or initiation ceremonies gone wrong. Police are investigating, but potential dangers and complexities of the volunteer experience are highlighted.

      The cases of Daniel Burke and Jordan Chadwick, two foreign volunteers who went missing and were later found dead in Ukraine, have raised concerns about potential danger and volatile situations among the volunteer fraternity serving in the combat zone. Daniel, a British volunteer, was last seen in August and his body was later found outside of Zaporizhzhda. The circumstances of his death are still unclear, but speculation has turned to the possibility of an argument or dispute with a fellow volunteer. Jordan, a former Scots guard, was found dead in June with his hands tied behind his back, leading to a clear sense of foul play. While the police are investigating both cases, there is a lot of speculation among volunteers about potential causes, including disputes or initiation ceremonies gone wrong. It's important to note that these are unconfirmed theories and the police have not released any official information regarding the causes of their deaths. The cases have shed light on the potential dangers and complexities of the volunteer experience in Ukraine, with a mix of individuals dealing with various personal and mental health issues, and the inherent risks of carrying weapons in a combat zone. As a responsible news organization, The Telegraph adheres to the independent press standards organization guidelines and does not report hearsay or libelous information.

    • Complex Relationships Between Ukrainian Military and International VolunteersInternational volunteers bring skills and perspectives to Ukraine's fight, but their relationship with the military is complex due to varying skills and behavior issues. UN Special Rapporteur on Torture urges US to reconsider cluster munition transfer over human rights concerns.

      While international volunteers are welcomed to fight for Ukraine, the atmosphere between them and the Ukrainian military is complex. At the beginning of the war, there was a lack of proper vetting, leading to a mix of skilled and unskilled volunteers. Some volunteers have complained about the behavior of their fellow volunteers, which can negatively impact the entire group. Despite this, there are also many volunteers who bring valuable skills and perspectives to the fight. On a separate note, UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, Alice Edwards, has urged the United States to reconsider its decision to transfer cluster munitions to Ukraine due to potential human rights law violations. Edwards has been working on the Russian invasion of Ukraine since the beginning of her mandate and recently returned from a week-long visit to the country.

    • UN expert urges US to reconsider sending cluster munitions to UkraineThe UN expert on torture urged the US to assess the human rights compatibility of cluster munitions before exporting them to Ukraine, emphasizing the importance of minimizing civilian harm.

      The use of cluster munitions in the ongoing conflict in Ukraine raises human rights concerns due to their indiscriminate nature and potential harm to civilians. The UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, Nils Melzer, urged the US government to reconsider sending these weapons to Ukraine, as they are incompatible with obligations under various international treaties. Melzer called on the US to assess the human rights compatibility of these weapons before exporting them. While acknowledging Ukraine's right to self-defense, Melzer emphasized the importance of complying with international law and minimizing civilian harm. The US has yet to respond to Melzer's letter, which was also copied to both Ukraine and Russia. Melzer's role is to raise these issues with governments, and while his letters put them on notice, his greatest asset is his voice and dialogue with countries.

    • Ukraine-Russia Conflict Tests UN's Ability to Maintain Peace and Uphold LawThe UN faces a crisis as the Ukraine-Russia conflict challenges its ability to maintain peace and uphold international law, with Russia's use of cluster munitions and the UN Security Council's inability to reach consensus on resolutions highlighting the organization's struggles.

      The ongoing conflict between Ukraine and Russia poses an existential crisis for the United Nations, as it challenges the organization's ability to establish peace and uphold international law. The Ukrainian government is committed to following international law, but the use of certain weapons in the conflict, such as cluster munitions, raises concerns due to their indiscriminate impact on civilians and potential violation of international humanitarian and human rights law. The UN Security Council's inability to reach consensus on resolutions, especially in the human rights sphere, highlights the increasing multilateral divisions and the challenges in achieving peace and peacebuilding. Ultimately, the burden is on Russia to withdraw from the conflict and the international community, led by the UN, should continue efforts to find a peaceful solution. The use of the term "genocide" to describe the situation in Ukraine is a powerful allegation, but the evidence on the ground suggests that while there are serious human rights violations, it remains unclear if Russia's actions constitute a genocidal war.

    • Allegations of widespread torture against civilians and POWs by Russian forcesRussian forces allegedly use torture as a deliberate tactic for instilling fear, intimidation, punishing opponents, and extracting information in the conflict in Ukraine, affecting over 90% of liberated individuals.

      The conflict in Ukraine is a very serious and fraught environment, with allegations of widespread torture against civilians and prisoners of war by Russian forces. These allegations are not random or incidental, but rather, purposeful violence perpetrated for specific reasons, including instilling fear, intimidation, punishing opponents, and extracting information. The scale of these allegations is extensive, with over 90% of individuals liberated from occupied areas reporting torture or other inhuman treatment. The methods used include sexual violence, and the targets include children, with the removal of children from Ukraine into Russia being a complex and important issue to investigate. The war in Ukraine is being perpetrated not only through modern technology and high-tech weapons, but also through the physical and psychological harm inflicted on Ukrainian civilians and prisoners of war. These actions exhibit an orchestrated campaign of violence and degradation.

    • Brutality towards prisoners in Ukraine encouraged by Russian FederationThe Russian Federation is reportedly encouraging and rewarding brutality towards prisoners in Ukraine, leading to serious consequences on their mental and physical health.

      The ongoing conflict in Ukraine has led to systemic brutality towards prisoners, both Ukrainian civilians and Russian soldiers. This brutality is reportedly being encouraged and rewarded by the Russian Federation through various means, including financial incentives and torture. The recruitment of convicted individuals from Russian prisons to fight for the Russian Federation adds to the violence and instability. These practices are not only horrifying but also have serious consequences on the mental and physical health of the victims. The situation calls for urgent attention and action from the international community to ensure the protection of human rights and the upholding of international laws.

    • Unique nature of conflict in Ukraine with organized state abuseUN faces challenges engaging govts, particularly Russia, in addressing human rights issues in Ukraine, essential for effective action, diplomatic support crucial.

      The conflict in Ukraine, particularly the systemic abuse and torture, stands out due to the well-organized and heavily hierarchical nature of the state involved. This context is unique in comparison to other conflicts where the order of abuse may not be as clear. The UN, through its human rights system, faces pressure from governments, with some being more engaged than others. The Russian Federation, in particular, has refused to engage with the UN's efforts to address the situation. The UN's special rapporteur on the Russian Federation has faced resistance, with the Russian government refusing to acknowledge her role. The cooperation from governments is essential for the UN to effectively address human rights issues, and the ongoing propaganda war makes it crucial to triangulate information and do proper due diligence before speaking up. The support and diplomatic heft from the UN Secretary-General for the work in this area is an ongoing question.

    • UN Official Warns of Long-Term Consequences of Torture in UkraineUN official Alice Edwards expressed concern about torture allegations in Ukraine, emphasized long-term societal consequences, and urged listeners to stay informed.

      That the UN official, Alice Edwards, emphasized the severity of the credible allegations of torture in Ukraine, making it one of the strongest statements from someone affiliated with the United Nations. She expressed concern about the long-term consequences of the conflict, including the entrenchment of mistrust and divisions in society. Edwards also mentioned that a preliminary report is already out, and the fuller version will be presented at the March Human Rights Council. She urged listeners to stay informed about the situation in Ukraine through reliable sources like The Telegraph. The official acknowledged the Secretary-General's efforts to resolve the conflict but was not optimistic about a near-term resolution. She reiterated that torture has detrimental effects in the short and long term and emphasized the importance of trust-building in conflict resolution.

    Zelenskyy's Pitch for More American Dollars
