Yildirim also saw great prospects for Turkey in the development of hydrogen energy. “We say that natural gas is clean, but even natural gas emits carbon dioxide, which causes the greenhouse effect. But there is nothing in hydrogen. You evaporate water, it becomes a gas. Carbon-free exhaust— a true environmentalist,— said the ex-Prime Minister of Turkey.

Turkey discovered the largest natural gas field in the region in 2020, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said. It is located on the shelf of the Black Sea, about 150 km from the Turkish coast, and was named Sakarya, and its initial reserves were estimated at 320 billion cubic meters. m.

This is not the first time in the West that Russia has been accused of trying to “rewrite history”. In 2019, the European Parliament adopted a resolution stating that the Second World War began because of the Molotov Pact— Ribbentrop and his secret protocols, and the head of the largest faction in the EU Parliament, Manfred Weber, spoke about the attempts of Russian President Vladimir Putin to “rewrite history.”

He was also indignant at the fact that the document adopted by the EU actually puts “both the Nazi aggressors and the Soviet Union” on the same level, and called it an attempt to distort historical truth.

“China is closely watching <…> they are paying particular attention to the reactions of the international community,” — Kishi said.

In his opinion, the reaction of the world community will influence the decisions of the Chinese authorities and their chosen actions in the “Asian region and the future.” If countries begin to justify Moscow's actions, the Japanese minister is sure, this “may send the wrong signal that such actions can be tolerated in other parts of the world, including in the Indo-Pacific region.”

Linda Thomas-Greenfield

US Permanent Representative to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield accused Russia of using chemical weapons in Syria, she made such a statement on PBS. Her words are quoted by the press service of the diplomatic mission.

“They also used false accusations against the United States and Ukrainians of using chemical weapons, and we know that they are capable of using chemical weapons. They used it against their own people, they used it in Syria,— said the diplomat.

At the same time, Thomas-Greenfield is sure, Moscow understands the danger of using nuclear weapons, “whatever the nature or form it may have.” She called the words of Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov about nuclear weapons “bragging”, while calling for the threat of nuclear weapons deployment to be taken seriously.

The United States is pressuring Russia in the Security Council on the issue of nuclear weapons, the diplomat assured, adding that these efforts should encourage the Russian leadership not to use it and abandon “threats against defenseless Ukraine.”

“And if they make the mistake of using nuclear weapons, we will hold them accountable. I won't go into the details of what we're going to do here, but they need to know that we'll answer them very, very strongly if they do,” — warned the US Ambassador to the UN.
