Quote from: Tamas on Today at 05:20:34 AMKazakhstan declared they'll refuse recognising the annexation of the "separatist" territories by Russia.Given that the Kazak border regions are at risk, despite the country going from just 40% Kazak to 70% Kazak since 1991, I'm not surprised by their stance. Especially since Russia has demonstrated its current lack of military capability.
I guess none of the former Soviet -stans are going to be enthusiastic about this whole thing, after all the only difference between their status and Ukraine's is that the attacking Russian soldiers wouldn't be asked to massacre close relatives.
QuoteProtesters have clashed with police officers during demonstrations outside the Iranian embassy in London.
The Met Police said members of the crowd threw missiles at officers and breached police lines in Princes Gate, Knightsbridge, on Sunday afternoon.
It comes as protests in Iran spread across the world, sparked by the death of Mahsa Amini in custody after being detained by Iranian morality police.
At least five officers were seriously injured.
Twelve people have been arrested on suspicion of violent disorder offences.
Dozens of protesters in London chanted "death to the Islamic Republic" and were seen waving Iran's former national flag from before 1979.
London mayor Sadiq Khan described the scenes as "completely unacceptable".
"The selfish minority who attempted to hijack a peaceful protest must be brought to justice," he said.
Footage posted online from Sunday's protest showed altercations breaking out among those in the crowd.
One clip showed two officers wrestling a campaigner - who appeared to have broken through the police line - to the ground.
