However, the likelihood of this, according to some experts, is unlikely, since the president of the Chamber of Deputies, Arthur Lira, is an ally of Bolsonaro.

In a previous poll by Datafolha, conducted in May this year, 49% of those polled were in favor of the president’s resignation.

Data released today shows that the percentage of people who advocate the removal of the Brazilian president is higher among women (59%), youth (59%), the poor (60%), blacks (65%), and homosexuals or bisexuals (77%).

According to Folla de São Paulo, Bolsonaro, the leader of the Brazilian far right, continues to be the second-worst-rated president after two and a half years of his first term, since 1989, when elections returned to Brazil. directly to the head of state.

Bolsonaro is second only to Fernando Collor, who in mid-1992 already faced the shadow of a request for removal, leading to his resignation at the end of that year. At that time, Collor achieved 68% bad / very bad, 21% normal and only 9% excellent / good.

The second half of the poll, released Friday, shows former Brazilian President Luis Inacio Lula da Silva leading the first round of the 2022 presidential election with 46% of the vote, compared to Jair Bolsonaro (25%).

According to DataFolha, Lula da Silva will also win Bolsonaro in the second round of the presidential election, with 58% of the electorate going to be preferred, while Bolsonaro will have 31% of the vote.

During the survey on July 7 and 8, 2,074 people were interviewed in 146 cities in Brazil. People over 16 years old were interviewed. The margin of error is plus or minus two points within a 95% confidence level.

This week, Jair Bolsonaro threatened not to hold the presidential elections in 2022 if the voting results are not accepted in Brazil.

The print vote has already been ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Court (STF). However, the proposal to amend the Constitution, advocated by Bolsonaro, is in the Chamber of Deputies, which provides for this type of voting, replacing the electronic system that offers a response on the same day and which has been used for over 20 years in Brazil.

Putin has repeatedly consulted with Russian Chief of the General Staff Valery Gerasimov and Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu about the invasion, Europa Press told Ukraine’s chief intelligence director Vadim Skibitsky.

According to Skibitsky, it was the Russian Federal Security Service (FSB), which is responsible for counterintelligence and espionage work, that put pressure on Gerasimov and other military agencies to agree to launch an offensive. .

However, according to the Ukrainian intelligence services, the FSB considered that by the end of February sufficient preparations had already been made to guarantee the success of the Russian Armed Forces in a lightning invasion.

However, according to Kyiv, the Russian General Staff provided the Russian troops with supplies and ammunition for only three days, hoping that the offensive would be swift and immediately successful.

The head of Ukrainian intelligence also emphasized the cooperation of local residents, who always provided the Ukrainian authorities with up-to-date information about the Russian army, such as the number of soldiers or the exact location of troops.

The military offensive launched on February 24 by Russia in Ukraine caused at least 6.5 million internally displaced persons and more than 7.8 million refugees to European countries, which is why the UN classifies this migration crisis as the worst in Europe since World War II (1939-1945). gg.). ).

At the moment, 17.7 million Ukrainians are in need of humanitarian assistance, and 9.3 million are in need of food aid and housing.

The UN has presented as confirmed 6,755 civilian deaths and 10,607 wounded since the beginning of the war, stressing that these figures are much lower than the real ones.

Life sentence for former Swedish official for spying for Russia

Published

on

A Stockholm court on Monday sentenced a former Swedish intelligence officer to life in prison for spying for Russia, and his brother to at least 12 years in prison. In what is considered one of the most serious cases in Swedish counterintelligence history, much of the trial took place behind closed doors in the name of national security.

According to the prosecution, it was Russian military intelligence, the GRU, who took advantage of the information provided by the two brothers between 2011 and their arrest at the end of 2021.

Peyman Kia, 42, has held many senior positions in the Swedish security apparatus, including the army and his country’s intelligence services (Säpo). His younger brother, Payam, 35, is accused of “participating in the planning” of the plot and of “managing contacts with Russia and the GRU, including passing on information and receiving financial rewards.”

Both men deny the charges, and their lawyers have demanded an acquittal on charges of “aggravated espionage,” according to the Swedish news agency TT.

The trial coincides with another case of alleged Russian espionage, with the arrest of the Russian-born couple in late November in a suburb of Stockholm by a police team arriving at dawn in a Blackhawk helicopter.

Research website Bellingcat identified them as Sergei Skvortsov and Elena Kulkova. The couple allegedly acted as sleeper agents for Moscow, having moved to Sweden in the late 1990s.

According to Swedish press reports, the couple ran companies specializing in the import and export of electronic components and industrial technology.

According to Swedish authorities, the arrests are not related to the trial of the Kia brothers.

“They can strengthen their positions. We understand that this can happen. At the same time, we do not rule out that they will announce a general mobilization,” Danilov said in an interview with the Ukrainska Pravda online publication.

Danilov believed that this mobilization would also be convened “to exterminate as many as possible” of Russian citizens, so that “they would no longer have any problems on their territory.”

In this sense, Danilov also reminded that Russia has not given up on securing control over Kyiv or the idea of ​​the complete “destruction” of Ukraine. “We have to be ready for anything,” he said.

“I want everyone to understand that [os russos] they have not given up on the idea of ​​destroying our nation. If they don’t have Kyiv in their hands, they won’t have anything in their hands, we must understand this,” continued Danilov, who also did not rule out that a new Russian offensive would come from “Belarus and other territories.” .

As such, Danilov praised the decision of many of its residents who chose to stay in the Ukrainian capital when the war broke out in order to defend the city.

“They expected that there would be panic, that people would run, that there would be nothing to protect Kyiv,” he added, referring to President Volodymyr Zelensky.

The military offensive launched on February 24 by Russia in Ukraine caused at least 6.5 million internally displaced persons and more than 7.8 million refugees to European countries, which is why the UN classifies this migration crisis as the worst in Europe since World War II (1939-1945). gg.). ).
