Military Review

A British official predicted in 2018 the most terrible humanitarian crisis since World War II

87
In the coming year, one of the worst humanitarian crises can happen since the end of the Second World War, reports RIA News a statement by the UK Secretary of State for International Development Penny Mordaunt.




Earlier, the UN declared a major humanitarian crisis that erupted in 2017. As reported in the Organization, more than 20 millions of people in several states are starving and need help.

Although 2017 was a year of terrible humanitarian crises, 2018 could be even more dismal,
said mordaunt.

The British Department of International Development also announced the allocation of an additional $ 21 million to the UN fund to overcome the effects of humanitarian crises. According to the ministry, these funds will be spent on “providing drinking water and improving the sanitary conditions of 13 million people”, another 9 million will be provided with food.

It is reported that the UK's annual contributions to the UN Central Emergency Response Fund are $ 55 million.

According to Mordaunt, "the UK will continue to provide humanitarian assistance throughout the world."

            The best housing and communal services tariffs were in the USSR. And after our elite surrendered their country to the West in 1991, tariffs for housing and communal services only increase. With such tariffs, enemies are not necessary! Putin is not much different from Yeltsin. The government has already announced the need to impose new taxes on the population!

            Which ones? What are you talking about? The change already happened in '91. And now Russia is a financial semi colony of the West. We drive the raw materials to the West, and the proceeds from it are also sent there. State reserves including. The issue of the ruble directly depends on the dollar, as in some kind of African country! And all this thanks to those people who run the country for at least the last 17 years. Wake up already, and take off your pink glasses!
            This hour is appropriate not to talk about surrender, but about how to break your dependence on the West. But, without changing the current government, this is impossible. 17 years already rose from their knees, and things are still there! Who is deceiving whom? So a hundred years will pass, and we will all rise from our knees ... and live like this hour from crisis to crisis.

              The surrender took place under Khrushchev, at the peak of the power of the CPSU. The "democrats" only disentangle what they have inherited from the "communists."

                Khrushchev appeared after the war, when the cities were destroyed. There was no housing at all. Nevertheless, in the USSR there were no homeless people, and such a humiliating and disenfranchised attitude towards man as this hour.
                It is simply indecent to compare the power and capabilities of the USSR with modern Russia. The minus (and plus!) Is that the USSR had a purely planned economy. And if there was the desire of the leaders, then to build up the country with houses, the USSR had more opportunities than this hour in Russia.
                Your comparison of the USSR with poor DPRK does not hold water. You are trying to equate a superpower with a backward country!

                Was the simple question Yeltsin a communist when he stood at the helm? Are Gorbachev and Putin Communists? No! They betrayed the bright ideas of communism. And the former communist Putin is trying in every possible way to bring these ideas to oblivion by financing vulgar films and canceling the anniversaries of the Great October Revolution!

                  You can argue for a long time on the topic of comparing the USSR and Russia, only this will be a dispute about anything. Since then, and now a lot of good and bad. It’s just that they didn’t talk about bad things in the USSR, but there was no “tyrnet.” Yes, and besides, we were 30 years younger, and everything bad and hard is forgotten faster than good over the years. And as for betrayal, then worthless is power, if traitors climb up.

          “In the United States, 90 Iraqi archaeological artifacts are illegally located,” said Minister of Tourism and Antiquities Lava al-Samism. “And Washington refuses to return them.”

          The biggest scandal erupted in the fall of 2012, when the testimonies of a translator who personally observed the loading of boxes with Iraqi Jewish archives into American transport aircraft were released. “Most of the most valuable documents from the collection of the Jewish community of Iraq date from the period of the Babylonian captivity (6th century BC - approx. Ed.),” Said Ali Abdul Hasan, a representative of the Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities. - But the most interesting is the theater, which the Americans staged. At a meeting with the delegation of Iraq, they stated that they encountered difficulties in choosing a partner in the negotiation process, since not only our side is applying for these facilities. As a result, they put forward completely impossible conditions - we must allow them to leave the archives for an indefinite number of years for research and examination. ”

In one of them sat Kusey Hussein, the youngest son of the president of the country, with his adviser and security. Without presenting any documents, he demanded that the bankers ship him ... a billion dollars in cash. Those obediently obeyed. For a couple of hours, suitcases were loaded into trucks containing notes for $ 900 million, as well as 100 million euros.

            Could hire Abramovich as a waiter
            “Similar“ excavations ”were carried out throughout the republic that night,” said Hamid Seydani, an ex-employee of the Central Bank of Iraq, in an interview with AiF. - In the largest cities - Basra, Mosul and Kirkuk - cash and gold were seized by personal order of Saddam Hussein. Iraqi intelligence agents withdrew about five billion dollars. A day earlier, Saddam's proxies abroad received an order: to empty bank accounts in Switzerland, Lebanon and the Netherlands. When, on June 15, 2003, at the request of the United States, the account of the Saddam family in Rotterdam was checked, it turned on ... twelve dollars. The President of Iraq was considered one of the richest people in the world. But his money suddenly disappeared - in an instant.

    Each year, 1,3 billion tons of food are lost during production and delivery, or thrown into the trash by consumers. In Europe and the United States, 95-115 kilograms of food waste is per capita, while in sub-Saharan Africa and South and Southeast Asia, the corresponding figure is 6-11 kilograms per year.
    This is stated in a new report by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), World Food Losses and Food Waste.
    The authors of the report noted that every year, consumers in industrialized countries dump 222 million tons of food in the trash, which is almost the entire volume of food production in sub-Saharan Africa.

      Despite the difficult economic situation, Russians are quite wasteful in relation to food - from 20 to 25 percent of the food purchased goes to garbage bins, experts from Rosstat calculated.
      However, in comparison with other countries, we are not the most malicious violators of the food balance.

    If you look deep into the problem, this is not a humanitarian crisis, it is a derivative of the crisis of the capitalist system. The system itself shows how it has outlived itself, how the modern system of distributing finances, the system of exploiting humanity and plundering resources, two or three hundred families on the planet fail!
    The imbalance of the system will increasingly affect the poor, and the rich will make more and more mistakes leading to the destruction of the system. The world is on the verge of a redistribution, the Americans have to give 13 trillion, but they don’t want to

      Positive from scratch? This is similar to out-training. It reminded me of a matrix where people are grown in cocoons, and from them, at this time, aliens are recharged. People sleep, and they see rainbow dreams! ... Here he is your positive.
      To be more positive, you need to be objective, and not sleep in blissful half-asleep. Soberly assess the environment and the coordinate system where you are. Who is trying to manipulate you on a zombie, and why? Who do you keep on your taxes? Is there a fair redistribution of the final product of labor? Why does 80% of all wealth belong to only 1% of the people in the country?
      So, a real positive appears when a person does not follow the various manipulators, but tries to manage the situation, no matter how difficult the situation is.
      If we talk about politics, then we have to choose. Or try to get closer to the feeder (to 1% of people). This means giving and taking bribes, going over the heads, stealing ... Or, abruptly not accepting, the thieves' oligarchic government, which is now at the helm. And try to at least do something. On election day, stand up and go to vote for a truly popular presidential candidate Grudinin. This will be very positive.
