Quote of the day 5th March 2022

"In his daily online philippics, Volodymyr Zelensky has one theme on which he plays endless variations: Russia’s war against Ukraine is only the beginning of a war against Western civilisation. If anybody in the West were still in any doubt that the Ukrainian President is not exaggerating, the assault by Russian forces on the nuclear power plant at Zaporizhzhya ought to disabuse them."

"Bombarding nuclear reactors, thereby endangering the entire surrounding population, may or may not be a specific offence under international law, but it is hard to imagine a more odious example of a crime against humanity. Not only is such an act of barbarism utterly indiscriminate, with particularly damaging effects on children, including the unborn, but its potentially unlimited impact on an entire nation almost certainly counts as genocide."

(Daniel Johnson, extracts from a piece on "The Article" site which you can read in full here.)
