The genocide perpetrated by Israel in Gaza against Palestinians under US patronage has had an enormous impact on developing countries. Four months of Israeli military action against the Palestinians had been a watershed in the attitude of the Global South towards the West: the number of civilians killed and wounded, most of them women and children, was approaching 100,000; in an enclave of nearly 2.5 million people, one third of the houses had been completely destroyed. This has not just shown the hypocrisy of the Western Powers with their constant policy of double standards…

Experts suggest that the situation on Lebanon’s southern border is quite complicated. Despite this, it has somewhat faded into the background due to the recent Israeli massacre in the Gaza Strip. The current situation can be described as a conflict with an escalation of rocket attacks between Israel and Hezbollah. According to official figures alone, the clashes have resulted in the deaths of over 100 Lebanese civilians and more than 200 Hezbollah fighters. The Lebanese Army has suffered the least casualties despite repeated attacks by the IDF. Israeli casualties are often overlooked…

In the military conflict in Gaza, where the number of casualties among Palestinians (almost 23,000 deaths) is growing due to extreme attacks of the Israeli Army, new bloody operations and new losses cease to be a surprise. The IDF is fighting not only against HAMAS, which is considered a terrorist organization in Israel. Israel denotes Iran its main military enemy, because it is Tehran that indirectly creates additional military threat for Israelis and their allies through its Shiite proxy forces, such as Lebanese Hezbollah, Yemen’s Houthis, Syrian and Iraqi militias…

November-December 2023 were almost unprecedentedly harsh months in Mongolia: most of the country was under a massive layer of snow, the thickness of which reached up to 50-60 centimetres in many regions. At the same time, mid-December was also frosty, with temperatures in some parts of the country dropping to -50 degrees Celsius. In addition to weather threats and challenges traditional for most countries and peoples of the world – such as failures in the work of transport, industrial enterprises, a sharp jump in injuries among the population, hypothermia…

In his next article devoted to parliamentary parties in South Korea, the author wanted to write about the problems within the opposition Toburo Democratic Party, where dissatisfaction with its leader Lee Jae-myung is growing, and former Prime Minister Lee Nak-yon with his supporters have seriously decided to leave the party. But an incident occurred that mixed up all the cards and required urgent coverage. On January 2 at 10:27 a.m., Chairman Lee Jae-myung was stabbed in the neck while he inspecting the construction site of a new airport on Gadeok Island during his visit to Busan…

The blatant negligence of transnational corporations towards their employees in developing countries is clearly visible in their activities in Kazakhstan, which is not for the first time the site of tragedies of colossal proportions caused by the negligence of employers: just remember the recent disaster at the Kostenko mine in October this year, which belonged to a subsidiary of Arcelor-Mittal. At that time, more than 40 miners died as a result of methane leakage caused by chronic safety violations…

The United States has recently monopolized mediation efforts in the Middle East settlement process, pushing aside other actors. In essence, Washington has taken a course to marginalize the Palestinian problem and it should be admitted that it has achieved certain results. The normalization of Israel’s relations with several Arab states – the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan and Morocco, which was achieved primarily thanks to the activity of the Trump administration…

The military battle between the Palestinian Hamas and Israel remains a prominent matter of international concern. Despite the chaotic process of building conditional blocs of pro- and anti-Israeli forces, the armed conflict is yet to result in lengthy political discussions with an undetermined end. The West, led by the United States, the United Kingdom, and leading EU countries (France, Germany, Italy, and others), has unambiguously sided with Israel in this conflict, accusing Hamas of terrorism. Joe Biden and Rishi Sunak visited Israel to pledge their political and military support for the Jewish…

The United States’ unwavering backing for Israel, while ignoring the Palestinians, has provoked anger throughout the Global South, particularly in the Islamic world. Several nations held anti-American protests, which included the United States Capitol. For a few hours, 500 regular Americans—many of whom were Jewish—took control of the Capitol Building and demanded that Palestine be saved. The activities of the US administration were so heinous that most of those present at the Human Rights Council in Geneva…

On 10 September, unprecedented Storm Daniel struck the eastern coast of Libya, producing waves as high as a two-story house, which overwhelmed two dams and, sweeping away houses, bridges, cars and people in its path, flooded the city of Derna with a population of 100,000 people.

On May 14, Cyclone Mocha, one of the most serious natural disasters of the last ten years, reached Myanmar’s Rakhine State, on the shore of the Bay of Bengal, killing more than 400 people and causing widespread devastation. According to aid workers and local residents, nearly 2 million people living in the state have still not received adequate support from the international community.

Even a visit to the Fukushima Daichi Nuclear Power Plant by a delegation of government experts did not dampen the excitement surrounding Japan’s planned radioactive water discharge, and the main opposition Democratic Party of Korea (DPK) with its leader Lee Jae-myung played a crucial part in fueling it. On May 24, 2023, the Democratic Party proposed that the National Assembly should adopt a resolution against…
