📆 #OTD in 1942, Dmitry Shostakovich's Symphony No. 7 was performed in #Leningrad. The Nazis were sure that the city would already be taken & planned a banquet for that very day. 🎼 But instead, in the Great Hall of Leningrad Philharmonia, this timeless masterpiece was played.

#Today, 7️⃣7️⃣ years ago the world witnessed the most horrific atrocity − the A-bombings of #Nagasaki. It was an act of utter cruelty & barbarism. Some 70k civilians perished instantaneously. ❗️ Our duty is to remember & ensure that history never repeats itself.

Translation from American: tomorrow we will be remembering the 14th anniversary of suicidal aggression of US-sponsored #Saakashvili regime against #SouthOssetia. Aftermath was tragic for #Georgia.This US-backed provocation was a preview of its proxy war with Russia in #Ukraine️
Today we recognize the 14th anniversary of Russia's invasion of Georgia. The Kremlin must abide by the commitments it made under the 2008 ceasefire. The United States supports Georgia's sovereignty and territorial integrity.

This is amazing. The Ukrainian armed forces shelled the nuclear power plant, caused fire, destroyed power lines and the EU blames Russia for that thus encouraging Kiev to continue attacks against the plant. EU officials live in surreal world.
The EU condemns Russia’s military activities around #Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. This is a serious and irresponsible breach of nuclear safety rules and another example of Russia’s disregard for international norms. @iaeaorg must gain access.

The Ukrainian intelligence confirmed that shelling of civilian targets in #Donbas has always been agreed upon with #Washington. If so the #US fully shares responsibility for crimes against humanity.

🇷🇺🤝🇨🇳 Russia's principled position remains unchanged: we operate on the premise that there is only one China, and the PRC government is the only legitimate government representing all of China, that Taiwan is an inalienable part of China. #WeStandWithChina #ThereIsOnlyOneChina
