The Lead: Ukraine Peace Document Revealed
Putin hold peace agremeent signed by Ukracredit: rt
Russian President Vladimir Putin showed off a peace agreement that was signed by Ukraine last year when peace talks were hosted in Turkey. It was called the Treaty on Permanent Neutrality and Security Guarantees of Ukraine.
Ukraine agreed to these terms but after consultation from Western leaders such as former UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson and the Biden administration, refused to honor the treaty. President Putin says that this is the first time this treaty has been publicly discussed.
"I would like to draw your attention to the fact that with [Turkish] President [Tayyip] Erdogan’s assistance, as you know, a string of talks between Russia and Ukraine took place in Turkey so as to work out both the confidence-building measures you mentioned, and to draw up the text of the agreement. We did not discuss with the Ukrainian side that this treaty would be classified, but we have never presented it, nor commented on it. This draft agreement was initialed by the head of the Kiev negotiation team. He put his signature there. Here it is,” said President Putin to a room full of African leaders.
The treaty outlined neutrality for Ukraine, maximum allowances for military personnel and equipment and listed Russia, the US, Britain, China, and France are listed as guarantors.
President Putin said that Russia withdrew troops from Kyiv after this treaty was signed but Ukraine never honored their side of the deal but instead “threw it all into the waste basket of history.”
Ukrainian President Zelensky now says that no peace agreement is on the table unless Ukraine re-takes Crimea, which voted to join Russia in 2014, and the Donbas region, which asked Russia to intervene and voted to join Russia last fall.
The Internet is practically begging Dr. Peter Hotez to challenge Democratic Presidential candidate Robert F Kennedy Jr in a debate about vaccines. Major Twitter influencers have pledged to donate millions of dollars to charity if Dr. Hotez agrees to this debate but he won’t.
We predict that Dr. Hotez will not do it for a few reasons: 1. Every time someone challenges RFK Jr. about vaccines, he asks for data to “show me where I got it wrong.” No one has been able to do that yet. 2. Dr. Hotez has received money from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, which funds and benefits from many vaccines in addition to the Covid vaccines.
Experts say there is no data to support that position even if they wish it were true. In fact, recent CDC data shows that those who have had more Covid vaccines are more likely to be hospitalized with Covid.

The A.C.L.U. Defending a Convicted Murderer

The ACLU is standing up for a trans-identified man who was recently executed in Florida because he was never allowed to go forward with a sex change on the state’s dime.
The man, Duane Owen, was convicted of raping and murdering two women in 1984. One was a 14 year-old babysitter who was victimized while the children she was watching we asleep, the other a 38 year-old mother. He went on to attack two other women who survived.
Owen had asked the state for permission to transition in order to be accorded the “essence of human dignity and allowed to become who she was meant to be.” The ACLU says that the state of Florida “never provided medically necessary gender-affirming care to Duane Owen — causing her enormous suffering and violating her right to be free from cruel and unusual punishment for the more than 30 years she was in state custody.”
So this is what the ACLU is up to if you are a donor. Thought you oughta know.
Squid Games Season 2 is trending because Netflix has announced the cast and director for the upcoming show. A release date has not yet been announced.
Dad jokes is trending because Sunday was Father’s Day in many Western countries and it just seemed appropriate. Here are some good ones from Kyle Finnegan from the Washington Nationals. The hokey pokey one is my favorite.
1986. That was the last time a monarch rode a horse to inspect troops in the British Trooping the Colour ceremony. King Charles III brought that tradition back this weekend because he is still young enough to do it. The King’s horse Nobel was “spicy" at first but the King calmed him down with the help of a groom and no one was hurt.
5. That is how many charges the U.S. government dropped against FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried. Eight charges remain for him to fight in court.
£50 million. That is how much a London council spent to paint Progress Pride flags that include transgender coloring on city crosswalks. People who are blind or vision impaired say that all the colors make street crossing more dangerous for them.
