Ukraine plans to privatize their state assets to get money for the war efforts. This privatization effort is quite big, from about 3,100 state owned companies they have, many are poorly managed and debt-ridden companies inherited from the Soviet era, less than half actually operating and only 15% are generating profits, to the ultimate goal of government only control 100 companies.

They are realistic about the situations. They are a country in war, which means low demand for the things that they offers. Their target only to sell $100 million worth of assets minimum for this year, only small fraction from multibillion dollars foreign aid.

But many also fears potential corruption on this privatization effort, which Ukraine even since before 2022 Russian invasion is already known for its corruption.

One of the biggest assets for sale is United Mining and Chemical Company, one of the world’s largest titanium producers. It is actually up for sale for three times even before 2022 Russian invasion, but they hope to successfully sell it this fall, with seven investors expressed their interest, with the minimum start price of 100 million USD.

Bukan yang pertama kali. Bahkan pernah B-2 Spirit lagi terbang keliatan di Google Maps.

Jaman pendudukan Nazi di Belanda, ada sejarah yang gak bisa dilupakan tentang gimana pemberontakan ngelawan Nazi bisa berjalan. Pemberontakan pun butuh uang dan uang itu didapet salah satunya atau bahkan utamanya dari van Hall bersaudara.

Mereka buat bond atau surat utang (obligasi) palsu mengatasnamakan macem-macem untuk dibeli Bank Sentral Belanda jaman pendudukan Nazi alias ngerampok bank sentral. Selain itu, mereka juga minjem uang dari orang-orang kaya yang dituker pake saham-saham dari sebelum masa pendudukan Nazi yang mana setelah perang dituker sama pemerintah Belanda pake saham asli. Semuanya dilakukan atas izin dari pemerintah Belanda in exile di London.

Total uang yang mereka kumpulin sekitar setengah miliaran euro (dulu masih pake guilder atau gulden) atau bahkan lebih untuk nilai mata uang sekarang.

Bayangin BI beli Surat Utang Negara (SUN) tapi SUN nya palsu lol.

Excellent analysis by Shirvan as usual, but he forgets one factor that will aggravate the climate situation in Iraq, and it's deliberate.


IS burned a lot of farmland in 2019-2020, which means fewer crops to an already shrinking arable land.


This practice has kinda stopped due to military pressure, but once given the opportunity they'll do it again. And because Shirvan himself has said that

ecological disaster + non-functioning government + no jobs = the militarization of the society (A.K.A Radicalization in the Western dictionary)

I have a firm belief that the U.S. will be stuck forever in this land (until they somewhat collapse at home of course) while NEVER being able to be laser-focused 100% to defend Taiwan. So Taiwanese if you read this, you can kiss goodbye to your dream of receiving total US attention until the end of the century, that is if you still exist as a country at the end of the century.

PS. Also. Is it just me who gets excited that the Euphrates are FINALLY drying up ?😂 Does anybody else share the same enthusiasm?

Senior officers from Saudi Arabia, UAE, Bahrain, Jordan and Egypt have/had a meeting with Israeli top general Halevi in Manama, Bahrain with US CENTCOM patronage. IDF and US CENTCOM didn’t immediately comment on it.

What is it about? Don’t know for sure. But what easily forgotten or lesser known is low profile alliance called usually as MEAD, Middle East Air Defense alliance. Looking at how they intercepted Iranian drones and missiles pointed to Israel months ago, we can conclude this low profile alliance quite successful.

Not related. I’m sure what known as US Site 512 in Negev desert, southern Israel also important part of MEAD.

China reportedly lobbied developing countries to not attend Summit on Peace in Ukraine June 15 and 16 and pushing their six-point peace plan issued with Brazil last month. Indonesian ambassador in Bern, Switzerland will attend this Lucerne summit if all go as planned.

“After China said it was not going to the Lucerne summit, Zelenskiy accused Beijing of helping Moscow undermine the meeting, an accusation China's foreign ministry denied.

……….

In conversations with developing nations, China has not overtly criticised the Swiss summit or directly asked countries to abstain, the Beijing-based diplomats told Reuters.

But one who was briefed on the outreach said Beijing has told developing nations the meeting would prolong the war, while two diplomats with direct knowledge of the matter said China has been telling Western nations that many developing countries are aligned with its views on the conference.

……….

In Asia, U.S. allies the Philippines and Japan, as well as Thailand, Singapore and East Timor have confirmed their attendance. Malaysia has said it will abstain, as has Cambodia, which has close economic links to China. Cambodia's Senate President Hun Sen denied being pressured by Beijing to avoid the conference.

Indonesia will send its ambassador in Bern. Vietnam has not made its position clear.”

Ukrainian owned ship now in Houthis firing line


$1B+ has been spent by the US Navy, not including munitions fired by their allies.


How Iran could've maintain the supply line of missile parts to Houthis is a topic worth reading.
