World News Diary, April 2022

We need to believe in God and Jesus Christ.

There are many problems in the world these days, to find some peace, I believe that this Easter, we should pray God and our lord Jesus Christ, in the hope they would help us find a solution, from the many problems that we have in this world.

My news diary of April 2022.

Welcome to my article (123) My world news diary, April 2022.

Dear readers, I was thinking that this month of April 2022 would bring better news, but we are living still in the same old world with all its problems. Anyhow, in this article we will be talking about Easter, the Australian elections, some happenings in the world and the war in Ukraine. These days between the Covid19 and the war in Ukraine the world looks unstable, and the only thing that brings stability is the Easter religious service that brings some stability and hope to share with the believers. You see, we should listen to the message that Easter brings, and to the way Our Lord Jesus Christ wants us to live, but people live life their own way, they do not care about what other people need, that is why there are more problems and wars in the world than otherwise would be, as we are going to write also in this article.

Anyhow, I need to say that people today are not strong believers, like they were in the past, but most of us still believe in God, so, we go to church, and if cannot we follow the church services on TV, anyhow what is important here is that we still believe in God, we believe that Our Lord Jesus Christ has sacrificed himself to open the way back to God, and through him we could gain eternal life, which is helpful to believe, since in this world there are many problems.

Some of these problems are manmade, so, it would be helpful, if we learn how to avoid them, but how we can avoid the COVID19 pandemic, and how we can avoid the problems that this war in Ukraine is causing, is hard to know. Then there are our personal problems to be solved. Here some people may find it easy to cope, other may not. Some of us may find that the main problems are our health problems, that in some families never seem to end, no matter what they do, they cannot find the right balance, sometimes the only thing we can do, is to pray, hoping that God hears our prayers and helps us. So, believing in God and Jesus Christ gives us some hope for the future, may God hear our prayer and help us according to his will.

Now that we have talked about a few things and our religious beliefs, let us talk about the coming Australian elections.

-----------------------------

Which one is going to be prime our minister

These are the two leaders of the major political parties in Australia, both have some good and some not so good policies, depending who you are and what you would like to see in your party leader. Anyhow, we are waiting to see, who is going to win.

Talking about the Australian election 2022.

In Australia this year, the federal election will be held the 21st of May 2022, so, we are waiting to know what the politician will promise us, to get our vote. The election was called the 10th of April, and now they are off and running. At the beginning the polls were saying the Labour Party, was tipped to win the election, but today after only ten days running, the race is more even, and it seems that there will be a hung parliament, if that happens the smaller parties will have the balance of power, and it will be hard to do anything, but now is still early to say.

Anyhow, because the government has spent a lot of money during the pandemic, they must be careful with spending more money, so, they are not promising much, they are staying within the budget outlines, that was published a couple of weeks ago, the opposition has not found much to criticise it, except for minor issues.

The other day the prime minister, Scot Morrison and the opposition leader Anthony Albanese have had the first debate, and they say that there was no real winner. Some people say that this election is not very popular for the major parties, and the minor parties are going to do well, and may end up holding the balance of power, apart from that, there is not much else to say.

But there are odd things that pop up, that may or may not affect the election. Defence Minister Peter Dutton has warned Australia needs to prepare for war in light of the looming threat from China and global insecurity spurred by Vladimir Putin's invasion of Ukraine.

Anyhow, the opposition is saying that the prime minister Scot Morrison has not been good enough with Solomon Islands government, he has failed to secure their friendship, and now China has stepped in and have secured their friendship and is going to have some naval base or something like that. Which is no good for Australia and the western world, but who knows what will happen next.

Anyhow, the election campaign continues, while they are blaming each other about this or that. Well, this is what we can expect at election time, but it is still to soon to say what will happen, and who is going to win.

The continent of Europe is spitting in two

Today the war in Ukraine is causing more problems in Europe, it seems that Europe is going to be split in two politically. But there is this problem, because they need each other, Russia wants to sell its gas and the others want to buy it.

Other happenings in the world.

Today most of the world seems to relax a bit from the COVID19 pandemic, most of us start thinking that the worst is over, so we could go back to normal living. But as most time happens there is something else to worry about. Mr President Putin has chosen confrontation with Ukraine and the west, instead of discussions and freedom of the Ukrainian people, he has gone so far that now he is going to stop supplying gas to Poland and other countries, because they are not able to pay their gas in Rubbles.

I believe that if this is not resolved for good soon, then the western world has got to find an alternative supply. Now, since using coal, petrol and gas can cause global warming, this can accelerate the transitional time to clean energy, like solar power or wind power. This must be done soon or later, so, this may become the right time to start moving faster. Anyhow, we will see what is going to happen.

Other news

The war in Mariupol Ukraine, see destructions

Russia has stepped up the pace of its offensive in eastern and southern Ukraine, and is preventing the evacuation of wounded Ukrainian fighters from a steelworks in Mariupol because it wants to capture them, Ukrainian officials have said.

Talking about the war in Ukraine.

Here I am only saying that this is a useless war that could have been avoided. So, let me explain how I understand it and my views. The reasons for Russia to invade Ukraine, is about some Russian speaking people that live in Ukraine, and because they are a minority, they feel mistreated from the government, so, they group themselves together and start fighting the government. Now, because they are Russian speaking people, President Putin believes that they want to be Russian, so, he wants to occupy Ukraine to help them, but what about the rest of the population that do not want to be Russian.

Well, this is how Putin wants us to believe, but then there is another reason why Putin wants to invade Ukraine, he does not like the idea that Ukraine become a member of the NATO organization, because he wants Ukraine to be part of Russia, and will not accept any other way.

Anyhow, what follows hereunder is what I found on the internet, and I quote,

Russia has launched a full-scale ground offensive to take control of Ukraine’s east, according to authorities in Kyiv, with explosions reported all along the front lines and one local official describing the situation as “hell” amid “constant fighting”.

The “Battle for Donbas” began on Monday, according to Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, with a “very large part of the entire Russian army now focused on this offensive”.

The Donbas is Ukraine’s primarily Russian-speaking industrial heartland in the east, where Moscow-backed separatists have been fighting Ukrainian forces for

the past eight years. Pro-Russian leaders there have declared two independent republics, which Russia recognised before launching its invasion of Ukraine on February 24.

In recent weeks, the Kremlin declared the capture of the Donbas its main goal of the war after its attempt to storm Kyiv failed. After withdrawing from the capital, Russia began regrouping and reinforcing its ground troops in the east for an all-out offensive.

Zelenskyy, in a video address, pledged to fight back, saying: “No matter how many Russian troops are driven there, we will fight. We will defend ourselves. We will do it every day.”

The president’s chief of staff, Andriy Yermak, called the offensive “the second phase of the war” and assured Ukrainians their forces could hold off the attack.

“Believe in our army, it is very strong,” he said. (End of quotes).

----------------------------------

Anyhow, the war is still going on, with losses on both sides, see one of the following descriptions. (And I quote)>

The UK defence secretary, Ben Wallace, estimated those losses on Monday as a quarter of Russia’s pre-invasion strength, with more than 2,000 armoured vehicles knocked out, including at least 530 tanks, as well as 60 aircraft.

Anyhow, I believe that I have said most of what I have heard happen, in this April diary, and my views is that this useless war could have been avoided, if they had asked the people to vote, on which side they wanted to be, and both sides accept the outcome.
