“Judges are required to comply with the rules and restrictions set for them in connection with their special status, including in the digital public space. In connection with the emergence of difficulties and issues related to the maintenance of social networks by judges, I ask the commission of the Council of Judges on Ethics to develop recommendations, ethical standards of behavior in social networks, supplementing them with the Code of Judicial Ethics. This will allow us to avoid many controversial issues in the future,»,— said the head of the council.
At the same time, Momotov noted that the council does not seek to limit judges in this way. “We believe that such standards should help the judge in choosing this or that behavior without fear of being held accountable,” — he added.

The modern West has embraced the “itch of creation” peaceful plans to resolve the crisis in Ukraine, and the Italian proposals, in particular, do not correspond to the interests of Russia and are “cheap schemes”; and “nonsense”. 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. They have long preferred to forget about the Russian draft peace treaty. It was as if he didn't exist 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.

The head of the European Commission announced that Brussels is taking measures to ensure that grain enters the world market. The Russian authorities are blaming the potential food crisis on Western countries that have imposed sanctions against Moscow jpg” alt=”Von der Leyen accused Russia of using food as a weapon” />
Ursula von der Leyen
Moscow uses food as a weapon, European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said at the World Economic Forum (WEF) ) in Davos. “Russia uses hunger and grain to gain influence,” — she said (excerpts from the speech were posted on her Twitter).
“The Antidote to Blackmail” von der Leyen called global cooperation in food supplies. According to the head of the EC, Europe is making efforts to get grain to world markets, increase its own production and provide food assistance to Africa.
Fears of a global food shortage began to sound after the start of the military operation in Ukraine: Moscow and Kyiv one of the largest grain suppliers in the world (16% and 10% of world wheat exports in the 2021/22 season, respectively). In addition, Ukraine— one of the leaders in the export of corn (14%).
Wheat prices have jumped to record levels since the outbreak of hostilities.
US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken has accused Russia of aggravating the food crisis in Ukraine. About 20 million tons of grain remain unused on the territory of the country, he specified. The Russian Ministry of Defense has suspended the movement of foreign warships and other government ships in three areas of the Black Sea for six months.
On May 21, Italian Foreign Minister Luigi Di Maio announced the danger of a “food war” in case of persisting problems with the supply of Ukrainian grain.

The Wall Street Journal reported, that UN Secretary General António Guterres proposed easing restrictions on the export of Russian and Belarusian potash fertilizers in exchange for the passage of ships with grain from Ukrainian ports.

Earlier, the media reported that the ex-president was detained for 72 hours in connection with the treason case. The Socialist Party explained that Dodon was not detained, but was present at the searches in his house and office
Searches in the house of Igor Dodon
Former President of Moldova (2016–2020) Igor Dodon was not detained, deputy chairman of the Moldovan party told Reuters Socialists Vlad Batryncha, whose honorary chairman is a politician. Dodon's office and home are being searched in his presence, the party representative said.
Earlier, Deschide.md, citing sources, reported that Dodon was detained for 72 hours as part of a criminal case initiated against him under several articles. According to the portal, together with the former head of state, his brother-in-law Petru Merineanu was detained, who allegedly tried to destroy the evidence.
Before that, the Prosecutor General's Office announced that Dodon's house was being searched. The ex-president is suspected under four articles of the Criminal Code of Moldova: 337 (treason), 1812 (financing of a political party by a criminal organization), 343 (passive corruption) and 330.2 (illegal enrichment).
A criminal case against the former president was opened on May 18 because of a video published by ex-deputy Iurie Renita in 2020. On it, the former head of the Democratic Party, businessman Vladimir Plahotniuc and his deputy Sergei Yaralov hand over to the president a package, which, according to Renita, contains a large sum. Dodon and Plahotniuc are discussing the creation of a coalition in parliament that would have a constitutional majority. According to TV-8, the head of state mentioned “notes” in the conversation, which he “constantly” wrote to Russian President Vladimir Putin.
After the video was published, the prosecutor's office refused to open a case, failing to identify “elements of crime” in the released footage: the department explained that they could not establish the contents of the package. In May 2022, the Court of Appeal reversed this decision.
Dodon denied receiving money from Plahotniuc. He accused the law enforcement agencies of trying to get him to flee the country and divert attention from the problems of Moldova.

Most deputies supported the bill allowing the Prosecutor General's Office to deregister media outlets for spreading fakes. The Communists criticized the initiative for fakes” />
The State Duma supported in the first reading a bill allowing representatives of the Prosecutor General's Office to deregister publications and terminate the license for television and radio broadcasting in the event of the spread of fakes, including about the Russian military, and calls for sanctions. “For” 361 deputies voted, “against” no one voted, four abstained. During the discussion, the Communist Party faction spoke out against the initiative.
Deputy Sergei Boyarsky, who presented the bill, called the decision to develop it timely, even belated. According to him, measures against Russian media have long been used abroad, requiring retaliatory sanctions. At the same time, several parliamentarians from the Communist Party of the Russian Federation spoke with questions and criticized the initiative. So, the communist Nikolai Osadchy reminded that the media can spread a fake, not knowing that this information is unreliable. His faction colleague Aleksey Kurinny also allowed political pressure on the media and proposed to deregister them not by decision of the Prosecutor General, but in court.
The bill, introduced by a group of deputies headed by Vasily Piskarev, head of the State Duma Committee on Security, proposes introducing a new article 56.2 into law 2124-1 on the media. It also applies to Russian and foreign media working in Russia.
According to the document, the registration of mass media may be invalidated, based on the requirements of the Prosecutor General or his deputies. This can happen if a publication, radio or TV channel distributes, under the guise of reliable data, “inaccurate socially significant information”, threatening “the functioning or cessation of functioning of life support facilities, transport or social infrastructure, credit organizations, energy facilities, industry or communications, or entailing specified or other grave consequences».
Also, the Prosecutor General's Office will be able to cancel the registration of a media outlet if it disseminates, under the guise of reliable reports, false information about the use of Russian armed forces or the work of Russian government agencies abroad.
Cancellation of media registration will also be possible if the draft law is adopted, for disseminating information in an indecent form that “insults human dignity and public morality, obvious disrespect for society, the state, official state symbols of the Russian Federation, the Constitution of the Russian Federation or bodies exercising state power in the Russian Federation” ;.

Sanctions can be applied, among other things, for calls to organize or participate in unauthorized actions, and for calls to impose political, economic or other sanctions against Russia, Russians, legal entities of the country.
Requirement for recognition of registration Invalid media is immediately sent to Roskomnadzor. Reprinting the above information, even if it is verbatim, is also punishable.
Appropriate restrictions are proposed to be introduced against Internet resources. If they post this information, the Prosecutor General or his deputies will be able to apply to Roskomnadzor with a request to restrict access to such sites. If the situation repeats, access to the resource may be permanently restricted.
The authors of the bill also specified that if the Russian media is banned abroad, the Prosecutor General’s Office will be able to ban the activities of foreign publications and channels, including on the Internet, as a response . All of the media decisions listed above, if the bill is passed, will be able to challenge it in court.
Earlier, commenting on the proposed bill, representatives of the Human Rights Council considered it to be contrary to the Constitution, which prohibits censorship. Such amendments are “inappropriate and harmful,” the HRC said. If the amendments are adopted, “absolutely any media can be blocked”, since it refers not only to official statements from the authorities, the HRC noted.

Discussing an embargo on Russian oil at the level of EU leaders would be counterproductive, the Hungarian Prime Minister said. According to Orban, the first step is to resolve the differences
Hungary will not support the EU's decision to impose an oil embargo against Russia until the EU provides the country with more detailed information about financial assistance to it, and proposes not to bring discussion of this measure to the summit of EU leaders until the resolution of these disputes, Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban said in a letter. to EU President Charles Michel, the Financial Times reported.
“Discussion of the sanctions package at the level of leaders in the absence of consensus would be counterproductive. This will only emphasize the existence of internal disagreements and will not give a real opportunity to resolve them. Therefore, I propose not to raise this issue at the next meeting of the European Council, — wrote the prime minister.
Since the end of February, the European Union has introduced five packages of sanctions against Russia and is preparing the sixth. One of the key restrictions should be an oil embargo. According to the head of the European Commission Ursula von der Leyen, the EU intends to abandon the supply of Russian crude oil within six months, and imports of refined products— by the end of 2022.
So far, the EU has not been able to agree on a new sanctions package. At first, Hungary, Slovakia and the Czech Republic opposed the embargo, and subsequently the EC met them halfway and allowed Hungary and Slovakia to continue importing Russian oil until the end of 2024, and the Czech Republic— until June 2024. Since then, Bratislava and Prague have withdrawn their objections, but Budapest is still not ready to withdraw its veto.
For the Hungarian economy, an embargo on Russian oil would be like an “atomic bomb,” Orban said, and it would take years to rebuild the country's energy sector. In this regard, Hungary demands from the EU a five-year delay, as well as compensation for the costs of restructuring the fuel and energy industry, adapted to heavy Russian oil. According to the head of the Hungarian Foreign Ministry, Peter Szijjarto, its full modernization may require up to €18 billion.
Amid preparations for a possible embargo, the European Commission presented the REPowerEU plan, which contains proposals to abandon Russian energy resources by 2027, for the implementation of which €210 billion is envisaged. However, Orban considered this plan incapable of solving the problems of Hungary in the event of an embargo.

The representative of the British Cabinet said that London will not send ships to the Black Sea Britain intends to work with partners to find ways to resume exports from Ukraine, in particular through the port of Odessa. The UN has previously called on Russia to lift the blockade of Ukrainian ports London said there are no plans to send ships to the Black Sea” />
At the moment, the UK has no plans to send warships to the Black Sea, a British government spokesman said, Reuters reports.
According to him, “the blockade of Odessa prevents those who need it from getting food.” The government spokesman noted that London will continue to work intensively with partners to find ways to restore exports from Ukraine.
In early May, Martin Frick, director of the UN World Food Program (WFP) office in Germany, said that 4.5 million tons of grain had accumulated in Ukrainian ports, they could not be taken out. Later, WFP Director David Beasley called for the blockade of Ukrainian ports to be lifted, as this would lead to famine and destabilization of countries. With this request, he turned to Russian President Vladimir Putin, noted Reuters. UN Secretary General António Guterres also said that Moscow should stop obstructing the export of food from Ukraine, and Russian food and fertilizer should be allowed to world markets without obstacles.
The Russian Foreign Ministry responded said that a combination of reasons led to the food crisis, primarily sanctions that interfere with normal free trade, so they should be removed.
At the end of March, the United States announced the withdrawal of all ships of its Navy from the Black Sea. The Pentagon said that this demonstrates its disinterest in the escalation of the conflict. The Turkish Ministry of Defense in April announced that it would not allow the introduction of warships into the Black Sea, in accordance with the Montreux Convention. Its 19th article states that during a conflict to which Ankara is not a party, warships of the warring parties cannot pass through the straits. Defense Minister Hulusi Akar noted that the Turkish side is trying diplomatically to warn the allies from entering the Black Sea, since such actions can be perceived as a provocation.

Works of art in the Russian museum fund should not be sent to foreign exhibitions, Interfax was told Mikhail Shvydkoy, Special Representative of the President for International Cultural Cooperation.
“I think that you just need to understand that for some time these things should be at home. Maybe this is the most important thing, that today, this is the common position with the Ministry of Culture and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation, that things stay at home for a while until the situation calms down. Because it seems to me that today it is better to host exhibitions than to send Russian works of art abroad, even, perhaps, to friendly and neutral countries, — the agency quotes him as saying.
It will be possible to return to the practice of participation in foreign exhibitions when the situation becomes “calmer”, he said.
