Medvedev called Italy’s peace plan for Ukraine “cheap scheming”

This was stated by Deputy Chairman of the Security Council of Russia Dmitry Medvedev in his Telegram.

“The West is seized with the itch to create “peace plans” that should lead to a settlement of the crisis in Ukraine. And it would be fine if it was about preparing options that would somehow take into account the realities. But— no, it's just a pure stream of consciousness of European graphomaniacs, — he wrote.

The politician cited Italy's recent proposals to resolve the crisis as an example and stressed that the Italian plan does not provide for the main interests of Russia. In particular, to the proposal for a neutral status for Ukraine and the country's entry into the EU, Medvedev replied that “all this is a lie.” He called the proposal for the autonomy of Donbass as part of Ukraine “obvious nonsense”; and “cheap projecting”, and the proposal for the autonomy of the Crimea, the deputy chairman of the Security Council considered an insult to Russia.

“There is no point in analyzing further. All this is just an attempt to help Kyiv save at least some face… However, Ukraine itself does not want to negotiate at all.

Reckoning only on the flow of weapons and money from Western countries, — concluded Medvedev.

In turn, the press secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov said that the Kremlin has not yet seen Italy's proposals for a settlement in Ukraine and they hope that they will be brought through diplomatic channels in the near future.

Dax – Coronavirus (State of Emergency) Lyrics

Play this song

The next week is going to be
Is going to be a 9/11 moment
It’s gonna be the hardest moment for many Americans in their entire life

This quarantine is got me feeling like I’m locked in a prison
I got coffins for these beats they better stay at a distance
Went to Costco for some tissue, they said two was the limit
I saw a granny try to grab ’em, I had to fight her to get it
Everybody turning animalistic
No supplies, no food, next the worlds going cannibalistic
Going crazy we all stuck on our phones
The quarantine Micaulay culkin’, this a movie we all home alone
We got Bills Mr. Gates
I wonder how the doctors feel
They gon’ have to go see doctor Phil or Mr. Gates
By the way, if you’ve ever talked behind my back that shits ok
I might get sick if you come say it to my face
This shits pandemic, certified crisis
I remember when corona was beer and not a man made virus
I remember getting sick wasn’t shit
Now we panic when we cough, sneeze, or feel like we got any type of sinus
What we do now?
Only option is to pray
If you don’t wanna be six feet under stay six away
Stay home, hide your kids, wash your hands, be safe
It’s like a greyhound bus and it’s stopping in every state
Ain’t it funny?
How them kids think it’s funny
And they wanna go and play on Spring Break
Stupid kids they gon’ sleep
In the bed that they made and then be mad
When them same springs that they have break, can’t escape
Shit is viral
I was on it way before it hit the news
This is man made, click baited, automated views
This is way more deadly than the flu
Way stronger than the devil, even he couldn’t empty the church pews
You a fool if you think it’s fake
On set symptoms after 14 days, until your lungs fail and you suffocate
Assisted respiration by a ventilate
Mass population declutiration a reason to eliminate
From Africa to Italy
Nigeria to Sicily
This virus 5G and has global connectivity
Thieving in the night as it creeps in your vicinity
And robs you of your basic motor function capabilities
So my task before the world panics and runs out of all the masks
Before discrimination of Asians becomes something we let pass
Forgetting that the problem stems from something we can’t grasp
Before you yell conspiracy
Before you tweet you at Donald like it’s really gonna fix the situation, but you have no validity
Before the stocks plummet
Before every industry realizes that’s it workers who slave actually run it
Before total lockdown and depression and anxiety
And long nights alone and no with contact with society
The riots, the tanks, 90 days of sobriety
And social validation off IG notoriety
Before you go crazy
Way before you choose the worst time in manking to have a unplanned baby
Just know
We’re all part of the remedy
We’re on the same team
And corona is the enemy

Stay home
Be Safe
And look out for check

704chop – Street Poetry Lyrics

You know we came from nothin’, straight out the dirt with this shit

Ain’t shit changed since I got on the road and I stopped f**kin’ with you
Wouldn’t speak the same language since you got that other nigga
Ain’t prayin’ for no angels, need a bankroll, let the money heal me
Carrying all this pain, f**k it, I ain’t gettin’ no demonic spirits
Can’t even post up in the hood, there’s always gon’ be shots fired
Don’t love the opposition, they just hate niggas from my side
My CEO told me, “Stay out the hood,” probably hurt mine
Wish granny was still livin’, she never seen how I turned out
Easy to see the world war when you watching from the birdhouse
Mama ain’t know she raised a star ’til the day they let your son out
If I went there when I started, bet I’m somethin’ now
Came from nothin’, but gave the whole world somethin’ to talk about
Ayy, f**k a room and let that nigga tell him from the horse’s mouth
[?] died April 1st, but it wasn’t nothin’ to laugh about
I heard your cousin killed you, I can’t wait until they let him out
The same ones you grew up with the same ones that take you out
Can’t love these bitches, keep it pimpin’, focus on the paper route
f**ked up, I’m left with all these memories of my dawgs up underground
Some days I feel just like I’m popped, just wanna ball above the rim
Won’t see me down my faith in God, I put all the weight on him
A couple niggas I know died tryna rob to feed their families
John died right in my eyes at 17, I won’t forget it
Who would’ve thought when I got shot it would’ve came from my daddy?
Came from nothing, not what you used to, so I know you don’t understand me
A nigga switch up on the usual, I don’t believe in the text
These niggas stepped up what you do, f**k the hype and probably [?] us
We ain’t friends, I can’t shake your hand ’cause I don’t want your hand
f**k the fake love, get on FaceTime with my daughter and get it genuine
You would think I’m layin’ in a casket, how they feelin’ me?
Anything you ever wanted, ask me, you ain’t gotta steal from me
‘Cause I ain’t got no time for no nigga with her Tennessee
We glow and now they know my name from Italy to Tennessee


Filthy Gears – Step Up Lyrics (feat. Wiley, Jammz, CapoLee & C Cane)

[Chorus: Wiley]
When I step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like step up

[Verse 1: Jammz]
What’d you mean, step up?
Bar haffi step up, level haffi step up
Can’t stop never, whatever the weather
I’m a real go-getter, I’m due to endeavour
You know me already, first name’s Jam
No, it ain’t cheddar, but I get cheddar
Shows in Italy, I’m getting mozzarella
If I’ve gotta fly Greece, you can call that feta
When I first come in the game, I said spesh
But I’ve got better since then, so I say spesher
I’ve been a monster on bars and beats
If it ain’t me, holler at Filthy or Gesher

[Chorus: Wiley]
When I step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like

[Verse 2: Capo Lee]
Tune get lead up when Capo step up
I stand in a place where a man can’t step up
Box man down and I stare in his eyes
Stand over his body so a man can’t get up
Chasing cheddar in a Nike sweater
Bare rain on my car, that’s a grinding weather
On sight, man, you can get it from far
Talking hard? Sent man to the stars
Get hit with a strap that costs more than your car
I still grind everyday, that was more than a bar
Then I’m bouncing food in a council housing estate
Superman, fly to the trap in a cape
Man dance on the riddim like Step Up 2
Peng tings, you can get bent up too
Ghost MCs, you wanna tweet and chat?
There’s no Wi-Fi when you get sent up too

[Chorus: Wiley]
When I step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like

[Verse 3: Jammz]
Jammz is a humble guy
But I don’t mind slewing MCs at my leisure
More than my pleasure, funny when MCs
Who ain’t on the roads say the opps soon dead up
Chatting about Ps but you’re getting stressed out
‘Cause you went to the shop and had to break that tenner
Drop man forever, same pussyholes got audacity
To talk about gloves and leather
Really ain’t clever, so what’d you mean, pepper?
Bars ain’t pepper, flows ain’t pepper
Tunes ain’t pepper, bars ain’t pepper
Clothes ain’t pepper, tell a man shut up
About man’s pepper
Already said last year, dem man are wet
And they still got wetter
You know dem bruddas that act hard for show
And roll with soft Tygas like their name’s Jenners?

[Chorus: Wiley]
When I step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like

[Verse 4: C Cane]
Step up, no leg up
But dem ones dere need a step up
See, I’m so far up the ladder with my bars
They cannot reach up to me with a step up
‘Cause when I step up, can’t nobody try step up
If you think not, beg you step up
I come like the Lombardo when it comes to drama
I dun the dance, no step up
Trust me, that’s easy, can’t shake a leg with I
Make a man raise their glass for I
You’d be high if I’m out here
Doing the work on job more time, no one don’t lie
Don’t ramp and vibe
Tuggset, big man, get petrified, on Christ
Me, I’m far from alright, are you alright, brudda?
Alright? Never, they get left when I write

[Chorus: Wiley]
When I step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like step up, man can’t step up
This ain’t a setup but I run the setup
You’re getting too comfy, rudeboy, better get up
I ain’t gonna step down, blud, I’m gonna step up
I do it like step up

Quilly – On Dek Lyrics

[Intro: Quilly]
On Dek! E and Reds wassup with yall
Yall might as well just drop the bag on me. YAMEEN

[Verse 1: Quilly]
My feature price higher than the numbers on the lean
Which means its gonn cost a pint for a 16
Money tall as Jabbar cuz my hooks like Kareem
I seen the pill game turn a boss to a fein
All i see is racks, it was hard to make a bean
To I signed with On Dek bitches treat me like Hakkem
How these niggas dead popped, they just had it all
Man my coke numb ya mouth like ammosul
Im bouta buy a whole brick, bag it all, trap it all
Pocket full of blue faces avatar
Im bout my money straight up like 6 oclock spin the coke counterclockwise then i hit the block
The work floatin on the water like Im skippin rocks
Big or not if they runnin’ heads then Im switchin spots
I can hit a chick, hit her mom, and her sister
Im tryna pull up in a rafe wit the big dippa
On the ceiling ask Haines Street I made a killing
Niggas ain’t got no aim, they out here killin children
Im on tilt man I play for the skeme team
I got the same Jordans Mike wore on the dream team
Drought nightmares, triple beam dreams
50 k the long way stuffed in these jeans
I want that major league paper Derek Jeter bread
Used to wonder bout the money now I got that pita bread

[Hook: Quilly]
I got some bottles On Dek
A couple models On Dek Now
I got some shooters On Dek
I got some money On Dek Now

[Verse 2: Quilly]
My Sneaks come from Sicily
My bitch come from Italy
My watch come from Tiffany
Dirty youngin from the projects remember me ?
2 O’s short bouta get a key
Quilly whippin up the recipe
Truck full of dog food no pedigree
Im hittin chicks cause they lettin me
My bank account they’ll never see
Steering wheel with the letter B
The cake clip girl with the letter C
Now we at Benihana’s eatin lo mein
I spilt some lo mein on my Balmains
Balenciaga my situation
Moncler on me baby
You hear the radio, I been killin the streets lately
Been getting wavy, but you already know
My money keep goin up, lets keep that on the low
I want a mill for the flow, Im tired of dealin the blow
Im tired of duckin the cops, I gotta see my PO
I put a price on ya head, you’ll be gone for the low
Ya bestfriend turn foe, for the love of the dough

[Hook: Quilly]
I got some bottles On Dek
A couple models On Dek Now
I got some shooters On Dek
I got some money On Dek Now

Luca Prodan – Mount Etna Erupts Lyrics

T was all so different before
No barricades in front of the door
Every single day’s the same
Watch “not the 9 o’cock news” or just shame, shame, shame

But that night, well it felt so right
That day, when I heard you say…
You can get to know me if you want to
Don’t be a bore, don’t be so shy
Everything’s fine, don’t you wish to?
Think of Italy and look at the sky

A bee far me and a bird for you, babe
Look at mount Etna, burning the sky
Earthquakes, whirlwinds, lightning, thunder
