Hungary insists in Brazil that sanctions against Russia ‘do not work’

“We want peace, both me and Bolsonaro,” Novak told his Brazilian counterpart in a joint media statement at the Palacio do Planalto, the seat of the Brazilian government.

Novak is on an official visit to Brazil, during which he will make stops in Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia and Sao Paulo, and Russia’s military intervention in Ukraine was one of the issues he discussed at a bilateral meeting with Bolsonaro.

The Hungarian leader said that “it is very important that this war ends as soon as possible” in order to restore peace “both in Ukraine and in Europe.”

“We know that the sanctions that have been adopted are not producing any results (…) The world economy is deteriorating and food insecurity is observed in some parts of the world. These are dangers that we must avoid,” he said.

Hungary, whose prime minister Viktor Orban is considered a European Union (EU) ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, said earlier this month that it was refusing to accept a seventh round of EU sanctions against Moscow.

In this sense, he urged the Bolsonaro government, which has maintained a neutral stance and has on some occasions been critical of Putin’s economic siege, to use its diplomatic “clout” to “eradicate” the conflict.

For his part, Bolsonaro said in a statement that Brazil wants peace and will do “everything possible” to achieve it.

On Thursday, Jair Bolsonaro felt that US and European economic sanctions imposed on Russia over its invasion of Ukraine “didn’t work” and defended Brazil’s “balance” line.

“The economic barriers of the US and Europe against Russia did not work. My line was a balance,” Bolsonaro told his supporters in front of the Planalto Palace, according to the local press.

The Brazilian official also recalled his good relations with Russia regarding the supply of fertilizers to Brazil, as well as the issue of “sovereignty over the Amazon.”

“More than a trade in fertilizers, [procurei] food security for the world and the sovereignty of our Amazon. This is a country that is with us on the issue of sovereignty,” he stressed.

Brazil, one of the main breadbaskets of the world and one of the world’s largest exporters of agricultural products, nevertheless depends for more than 80% on fertilizer imports, of which about 20% comes from Russia and more than 10% from Belarus. .

The Brazilian government has been ambivalent about Russia ever since the country launched a military offensive in Ukraine.

A few days before the Russian attack, Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro met with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Brazil does not support the sanctions imposed against Russia and is even making efforts to ensure that the sale of Russian fertilizers does not fall under sanctions.

After the plane thaw found two corpses in the Swiss Alps

After the discovery of the wreckage, two bodies were found in the melting ice of the Swiss Alps. Snowless winters and hot July temperatures are slowly revealing the secrets hidden in the Alps.

Two French climbers discovered the bodies on Wednesday while climbing the Chesgen glacier in Valais.

The bones were brought by helicopter for examination. Police say the DNA identification process “may take several days.”

The discovery happened next to a trail that hadn’t been used in over a decade, said Dario Andenmatten, director of the mountain hut in Britain, where many climbers start their ascents in the region.

French climbers were guided by an old map, which led to the discovery. One of the climbers claims that one of the bodies found was wearing “clothing from the 80s.” According to the report, the body was mummified and slightly damaged, “but nearly intact.”

Investigators estimate the death occurred “around the 1970s or 1980s.”

A week ago, a body was found next to the Stockey glacier, near the resort of Zermatt, on Monte Cervino, the most famous mountain in the Alps.

Police in the Alps maintain a list of some 300 people who have gone missing since 1925, one of which is billionaire supermarket chain owner Karl-Erivan Haub who disappeared in 2018.

After a relatively snowless winter, the Swiss Alps have already experienced two heatwaves in the summer. In July, authorities advised climbers not to climb the Matterhorn due to abnormally high temperatures, which reached almost 30 degrees Celsius in Zermatt.

During the July heat wave, the height at which the water froze was a record 5184 meters compared to the normal summer level of 3000 to 3500 meters.
