4 The USA The Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orban, stated in an interview to the German mass media that in order to end the armed conflict in Ukraine — it is necessary to immediately sit down at the negotiating table. Viktor Orban is certain that the negotiations should be conducted by Russia and the USA. «We need an immediate ceasefire. So says the Pope. So says the former US Secretary of State, Kissinger. So says the German philosopher, Jurgen Habermas. An immediate ceasefire, and then negotiations» — the Hungarian prime minister stated. Viktor Orban is certain that Ukraine can’t cease fire on its own. Negotiations should be conducted with the USA. Russia has too many resources, much more than Ukraine. The conflict is being fueled solely by the supplies to Ukraine from the West. «They can fight indefinitely just because the Americans support them» — Victor Orban concluded.

6 Taiwan Taiwan has changed the definition of what counts as «the first strike», since the Chinese Communist Party has also changed its tactics. Now the «first strike» will be considered not an artillery attack, but a drone in the airspace of Taiwan — the Minister of Defense of the island, Qiu Guozheng, stated on 11th of October. “We have always been in favor of avoiding the war. We are changing the definition of the “first strike” because the Chinese Communist Party is also changing this definition. Previously, we considered ’the first strike’ to be artillery shells and rockets. Now the Chinese drones cross the line, causing us a lot of trouble» — Qiu Guozheng stated during a speech at the Legislative Yuan. Qiu Guozheng stated during the last week that Taiwan will take retaliatory actions if the Chinese forces cross the red line. He added that the penetration of the Chinese warplanes into the airspace of the island — the distance of 12 nautical miles from the coast — will be regarded as «the first strike». He didn’t specify how exactly Taiwan will respond. The situation around Taiwan escalated after the visit of the speaker of the US House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi. China considers the island to be one of its provinces, and thus China condemned the visit of Pelosi as a move of the USA to support the Taiwanese separatism. China held large-scale military training shortly after. Constantine Reztsov, specially for the ANNA NEWS.
