Useful @guardian map showing how much of the territory Putin is “annexing” isn’t even under Russian control. The total territory is about 15% of Ukraine and includes major cities. Under Russia’s amended constitution, no Kremlin leader can cede territories once they are annexed.

Les deux journalistes qui ont grandement contribué à la couverture de l'assassinat de #MahsaAmini sont toutes les deux emprisonnées. Une vague d'arrestations de militants et de journalistes est actuellement en cours en #Iran.

On ne peut pas avoir deux poids, deux mesures. Pour les uns, exiger des essais cliniques, pour les autres s’en passer. L’intérêt des essais est d’éviter ces débats que d’aucuns estiment intellectuels. Mais on exige des essais cliniques pour tous les nouveaux médicaments, pas ici?
