Zelensky Said It’s A Ukrainian Future To Join The E.U.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said on Thursday that EU accession is Ukraine's "choice of our future vision." "including but not limited to [the] Warsaw speech of 1999, it is clear that this country is called to unite Europe as one big family. Before we make a decision in the referendum, we should tell the country about our future vision to form a special corridor from Kiev to Berlin," Zelensky told the Jewish University of Jerusalem's Board of Governors during his rare virtual address.

Russian President Vladimir Putin announced Thursday the last day of the age of "unipolarity," in a speech delivered at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum, which lambasted Western countries. "When they won the Cold War, the US declared themselves God's own representatives on earth," Putin told the audience. The much-hyped speech was delayed by more than 90 minutes because of distributed denial of service attacks on its systems.

French Parliamentary Elections Were Eclipsed By Low Turnout.

On the evening of Macron's re-election, his party's centrist alliance, Ensemble, has an increased risk of losing its majority in parliament of just weeks. Polling suggested German Chancellor Angela Merkel's centre-right alliance Christian Democratic Union (CDU) and Free Democratic Party (FDP) with the leftist coalition New Ecological and Social People's Union (NUPES) neck and neck. According to results announced Sunday evening, Ensemble has won 25.37 percent (5.1 million votes), while the pan-left NUPES led by Jean-Luc Mélenchon have gained 24.31 percent (4.9 million votes). A second round of voting is scheduled for June 19. If after that Ensemble falls short of the 289 threshold for an absolute majority—which major pollsters are projecting as a possibility—Macron will become the first ...
