An absurd accusation has been put forward against the Chairman of the Transnistrian Communist Party Central Committee, a deputy of the Supreme Soviet of the MTR.
Oleg Khorzhan which is known as a courageous and uncompromising fighter for legitimacy, has been accused in attacking law enforcement officers. In such a way the Authorities try to intimidate all independently conceiving citizens as well as to soothe growing social anger in the country.

The Workers’ Party have said it is an indictment of Ireland’s labour legislation that LloydsPharmacy workers have to go out on strike for sick pay and a basic hourly contract.

Speaking before visiting striking workers in the company’s Stoneybatter chemist, Cllr. Ryan said:
“Most people’s reaction to the core demands of LloydsPharmacy workers, is astonishment that such basic conditions as minimum guaranteed hours and are not required by law. In 2018, it is inexcusable that any company would fail to provide these things.

Marco Rizzo, the GS of the Partito Comunista, made a brief comment on the Italian rejection of the rescue ship Aquarius.

On June 10, Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini declared his refusal to accept the rescue ship Aquarius in Italian ports by claiming, "Saving lives is a duty, turning Italy into a huge refugee camp is not." The Aquarius had picked up 629 migrants mainly from the Sub-Saharan Africa from small boats sailing from Libya to Italy. Whereas the overcrowded Aquarius remained running out of provision at sea between Malta and Sicily, it has been eventually the new Spanish Government which offered to receive the vessel. Salvini, known for his populist anti-immigration policies, declared victory after Spain's offer. On the other hand, it must be noted that Spain lacks the necessary resources and infrastructure to cope with the migration crisis in the long term.
