Week 31 2023
31/7-6/8. Quran burnings, OIC protests, muscovite terror, Prigozhin walking around in Stink Petersburg while the little bunker czar is there, and more.
This is the first of my weekly posts. I hope that I’ll remember to post them regularly on Sundays or Mondays, summing up events that got my attention during the week. I have not come up with this idea myself. I have stolen it from Martin Black who wrote the fantastic posts 11 days in May and Seven days in April. His posts are different from mine and much more fun to read than my posts. If you want to learn something and be cheered up at the same time, read Martin. If you insist on being depressed, read me.
Quran burnings and OIC protests.
The quran burnings continued. In the center of Stockholm this time. This triggered a lot of protests in the Muslim world. The protests also targeted Denmark, where burnings also took place.

The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation published a resolution on the repeated crimes in Denmark and Sweden. But, it isn’t a crime to burn the Quran. Neither in Denmark nor in Sweden. The Swedish Constitution guarantees freedom of expression on any subject. Our blasphemy laws were scrapped during the 1970’s. Freedom of expression is also strongly protected in Denmark. However, Danish politicians seem more prone to restrict the burnings than Sweden, judging by the words of the Danish foreign minister.
Let’s see if the Swedish government also folds or if they try to change the non-constitutional law, the Law on Public Order (Ordningslagen), to prevent the burnings. According to this law, the Police authority can refuse to allow manifestations and demonstrations if those can be expected to threaten the order and security of the place that they’re being held. There are now speculations that this law will be amended to allow for wider considerations of security and order. If so, it might be that the police and refuse permits for manifestations that potentially could deteriorate the national security.
Pride week in Stockholm
Week 31 is also the week of Stockholm Pride. The city will host a number of events during the week. Lots of people will attend including the political parties who will send representatives to participate in the different events. Some are not happy though. Björn Söder, well known for his fondness of autocratic leaders like Orbán, accused Stockholm Pride for legitimizing paedophilia.
For some reasons, this character is Sweden’s head of delegation to the OSCE.
muscovite terror bombings.
Continue as usual. In Kryvyi Rih where at least 75 people were injured, six people, including a child, murdered when muscovy attacked a nine-story residential buildings. And today, 1 Augst, they bombed a medical center in Kherson, killing a doctor and at least five more of the medical staff. And of course, they bomb Odesa
I have stopped wondering whether these attacks on civilian targets are accidental or not. There have been so many now that it is obvious that the muscovites don’t care. They are sadists as people all over Ukraine knows.
Ukraine hits back.
muscovy’s capital Moscow is not safe for militaries and people working directly for the kremlin’s genocidal war against Ukrainie. Ukrainian drones hit the floor of a skyscraper containing the kremlin’s progaganda orcs. The differences in precision and humanity are striking. Ukrainian drones not only hit the correct building but also the offices of the intended targets. muscovy’s drones and bombs hit anything Ukrainian. Ukrainans are careful not to hit civilians. muscovites don’t care.
Ukraine also showed that muscovy can’t defend its navy against a country without a navy. A muscovy landing ship was severely damaged in Novorossiysk. Novorossiysk is located on the eastern side of the Black Sea and far away from non-occupied Ukrainian ports. No wonder that the little bunker czar and his puppet Medvedev are panicking and ordering bombings of Ukrainan blood transfusion centers in return.
The attacks on the listing ship and the oil tanker, carrying jet fuel to muscovy’s air force bombing hospitals and refugees in Syria, shows that muscovy can’t defend its own waters.
The peace summit in Saudi Arabia.
The meeting of advisers to country leaders and representatives of foreign affairs of about 40 countries was held in Jeddah in the week, to discuss the Ukrainian peace formula. In particular, the G7 countries, four BRICS countries, Brazil, China, India, and South Africa and more countries of the Global South were present at the negotiations.
The meeing concluded thatn at the center of any peace agreement should be respect for the territorial integrity and sovereignty of Ukraine, as well as the supremacy of the UN Charter. In addition, the diplomats agreed to form working groups on the key topics of the 10 points of the peace formula of President Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
The significance of this is of course the other four BRICS countries taking part in the Summit which declared that peace means that Ukraine’s territorial integrity should be respected. This means that peace on muscovy’s terms are rejected. The pathetic claims on territories it pretends to have annexed in its “constitution” are null and void.
That must have hurt the little bunker czar.
putin makes a fool of himself again.
His useless African - muscovy summit was attended by only 17 African countries. The leader of the African Union urged the little bunker czar to return to the Black Grain Initiative.
This war must end and it can only end on the basis of justice and reason,” said the head of the African Union Commission, Moussa Faki Mahamat. “The disturbances that it causes in the supply of energy and grain must cease immediately” for the benefit of all, especially Africans.
The little person’s offer to provide a few African countries with a handful of grains for free, was of course rejected by the African leaders. They wanted muscovy to return to the Initiative and stop preventing Ukraine exports of grain. In the world of the South African president, Cyril Ramaphosa.
We would like the Black Sea initiative to be implemented and that the Black Sea should be open. We are not here to plead for donations for the African continent.
The only muscovite who got something out of the summit was Prigozhin. The coup maker who made the little bunker czar fly to Stink Petersburg, walked around and offered his services to African dictators. Meanwhile, 15-year old girls are imprisoned in muscovy for holding signs saying “No to war!”.
The Summit took place before the week 31, but I couldn’t resist to include because it showed what a failure the little bunker czar is. I should add that he pathetically replied to the African leaders demand to a cease fire by saying that muscovy troops couldn’t cease fire while being attacked.
And now, the little bunker czar has called Erdogan to pretend that muscovy needs Turkish help to export the grain it has stolen from Ukraine. The little fucker killed irony decades ago.
The kremlin committs a war crime for every orc soldier on Ukrainian territory. This means that war crimes have been commited since 2014 when Crimea and part of Donbas were occupied.
muscovy steals and kills Ukrainian children
According to ISW, the muscovy chief abuser of children, Maria Lvova-Belova confirmed on July 31 that Russia has transferred 4.8 million Ukrainians, including over 700,000 children, to the Russian Federation since the beginning of the war. This is nothing but genocide. In the occupied areas, Ukrainians are being deported and/or forced to give up their apartments and houses. Instead, muscovites from the different parts of muscovy are moved in to replace the Ukrainians.
At least 500 Ukrainian children have been killed by muscovy since 24 February 2022.
muscovites torture Ukrainians
Stealing Ukrainian children is one particularly cruel war crime. Torture is another. Nearly hald of the Ukrainians held against their wills in muscovy’s detention centers were tortured. Some of them raped and/or had they genitals electrocuted. The torture is ordered by the little bunker czar, aka putin. It is part of his genocidal plan for Ukraine. A new report, published 2 August, by the Mobile Justice Team states:
“New evidence collected from liberated Kherson reveals torture chambers were planned and directly financed by the Russian State
20 torture centres identified in liberated Kherson, with many more expected to be uncovered
Electric shock torture and waterboarding described by witnesses as among criminal acts used against Ukrainian women and men held in torture centres in Kherson
Torture centres are part of Putin’s calculated plan to terrorise, subjugate and kill Ukrainian resistance
Over 1,000 torture chamber survivors submitted evidence so far, while over 400 people documented as having ‘vanished’ from Kherson
Evidence confirms ‘genocidal tactics are baked into Putin’s plan to extinguish Ukrainian identity’ according to Wayne Jordash KC, British International Humanitarian Lawyer supporting Ukraine’s war crimes investigation through first of its kind Mobile Justice Team.”
At least three cargo ships ignored muscovy’s blockade of Ukrainan ports and arrived to Reni.
Twenty-two days after Moscow canceled a deal with Kyiv—which had allowed Ukraine safely to export tens of millions of tons of grain—and then threatened to halt maritime traffic to Ukrainian ports, the world has called the Russians’ bluff.
“Reports of three civilian ships sailing to Ukraine unhindered may suggest that Russia is either unwilling or unable to enforce such searches at this time,” the Institute for the Study of War in Washington, D.C. noted.

Interestingly enough, which I first read on cornucopia.se, Mali and Burkina Faso, two dictatorships where the Wagner group is present, have declared that they will defend the military coup makers in Niger if other African countries, organised in ECOWAS, try to re-establish the democratically elected president. Niger exports a large share of its uranium to France which probably explains muscovy’s interest in this coup and why demonstrators waive muscovy’s flags. Even though Niger has stopped exporting to France, on kremlin orders(?), it takes years before such a measure would have an impact. Nevertheless, it shows that the kremlin is in for the long game if it survives the coming years.
Trump is facing new charges. Of course he is, he’s a crook.
On the disinformation front.
The infamous organisation Women for Peace (Kvinnor för fred), launched a new disinformation campaign. In letters of opinion to Swedish newspapers, they lied about NATO. They wrote that NATO caused death and destruction in Iraq and Syria. I rebutted their stupid lies as you can see in this post.
Sarah Sjöström now has won more international medals than anyone else. In the FIFA Women’s World Cup, the Swedish team won their group. They won all the three games, against South Africa 2-1, Italy 5-0, and Argentina 2-0. And eliminated the US team, with a bit of luck, after a penalty shoot-out.
