Criticism also came from the district administrator of the ILM district, Petra Enders (independent). «The country must finally fulfill its responsibility and organize the accommodation of the refugees in its own properties. The possibilities are there, »she said. Empty buildings that the country had inherited from people who have no findable relatives could also be used.

  'New Cold War': Russia and West vie for influence in Africa JOHANNESBURG (AP) — Russian, French and American leaders are crisscrossing Africa to win support for their positions on the war in Ukraine, waging what some say is the most intense competition for influence on the continent since the Cold War. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and French President Emanuel Macron are each visiting several African countries this week. Samantha Power, head of the U.S. Agency for International Development, went to Kenya and Somalia last week. The U.S. ambassador to the U.N., Linda Thomas-Greenfield, will go to Ghana and Uganda next week.

Schard spoke of a disappointing special meeting. In his view, the financing of the accommodation costs is still unclear. The local politician of the left, Sascha Bilay, on the other hand, referred to the promise of the red-red-green government of Prime Minister Bodo Ramelow to check a down payment to the municipalities. However, it also shows that the savings decision enforced by the CDU to make flexible regulations difficult.

The state government had asked the federal government to make more money available at the end of July in order to be able to prepare vacant apartments for accommodation. In addition, she wants to check whether the country can grant a down payment of 2500 euros per person to the circles and independent cities for the inclusion and accommodation of war refugees - almost as a advance payment for future payments.

Mysterious explosions that rocked a Russian military base suggest Russian positions far behind the front lines are no longer safe, officials and experts say .
"The psychological impact of this is much larger" than the damage to the base and the loss of aircraft, one expert told Insider.Russia now has over 130,000 troops, as well as a significant amount of weaponry and other hardware, in positions around Ukraine. Though Russia has denied having plans to attack, many in the West remain skeptical. Russia has troops in Belarus, western Russia, and Crimea.
