“After rescuing 229 people […] the #Aquarius then took 400 more people, [who were] earlier rescued by Italian navy, Italian coastguard & merchant’s vessels,” the non-governmental organization SOS Mediterranee said, referring to its rescue ship “Aquarius”.
2…………> Happy 92th “Dear Mum”: Queen Elizabeth
Large crowds have gathered in London for the annual Trooping the Color to mark Queen Elizabeth II’s 92nd birthday, as British Royal Air Force Red Arrows pilots performed a fly-past and hundreds of soldiers marched to Horse Guards Parade in Whitehall.
Joining the Queen to watch the event were other senior Royals, including Prince Charles and the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the first time Prince Harry and his wife Meghan Markle, now known as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, attended the Queen’s birthday celebrations together.
The Queen — who, until recent years, would attend on a horse — and the newlyweds arrived in open-top carriages at the event that has marked the sovereign’s official birthday for more than 260 years.
Prince Philip, who retired from public duties last year, did not attend the ceremony that involves more than 1,400 soldiers, 400 musicians, and 200 horses.
3…………> Mr. Trump Goes To G7: Punch, Punch
President Donald Trump announced on Twitter that he was backing out of the joint communique, confirming that he might double down on import tariffs by hitting the sensitive auto industry, and his adviser Larry Kudlow accused Canadian PM Justin Trudeau of betraying Mr. Trump with “polarizing” statements on trade policy, tossing the current tariffs dispute towards a full-blown diplomatic and trade crisis after Mr.Trump called him “very dishonest and weak”.
The spat drew in Germany and France, who sharply criticised Mr Trump’s decision to abruptly withdraw his support for a Group of Seven communique hammered out at a Canadian summit on Saturday (local time), accusing him of destroying trust and acting inconsistently.
Donald J. Trump
PM Justin Trudeau of Canada acted so meekly and mild during our @G7 meetings only to give a news conference after I left saying that, “US Tariffs were kind of insulting” and he “will not be pushed around.” Very dishonest & weak. Our Tariffs are in response to his of 270% on dairy!

“Canada does not conduct its diplomacy through ad hominem attacks … and we refrain particularly from ad hominem attacks when it comes from a close ally,” a Canadian official told reporters in Quebec City.
“[Mr. Trudeau] really kind of stabbed us in the back,” Mr. Kudlow, the director of the National Economic Council who had accompanied Mr. Trump to the summit of wealthy nations on Saturday, said on CNN’s State of the Union.
4…………> United SCO: A G7 Havoc & Retreat
Unlike their “colleagues” at the highly unsuccessful G7 meeting in Ottawa, Canada, where the leftovers of our 1st Muslim President, Grand Ayatollah Barack Obama so called “New World Disorder” crowd spent days to draft a closing resolution that will underscore its unshakable unity in support of the global economy, just to get a big size 17 “Trump boot” in the face and his refusal to sign it, the leaders of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) held the annual summit of the Eurasian institution, with Chinese President Xi Jinping chaired the meeting.
Blatantly labeled by the “Fake News” media as the “bully boys” of the International community for their refusal to submit to the illegal monetary terror of the Central banks using the Forex market as a tool of political ends,
at the 18th Meeting of the Council of Heads of Member States of the SCO, Xi called for carrying forward the Shanghai Spirit to surmount difficulties, defuse risks and meet challenges.
Other SCO leaders also voiced their expectations of future cooperation in various areas so as to give full play to the organization’s role after its expansion.
5…………> The Gulag Years: KGB Archives
The records of the mid-20th-century gulag program are — for the most part — ‘registration cards’ featuring prisoners’ personal data as well as tracking their movement between camps as well as their release date if any. In the event of death, authorities sent a special report for permanent storage in the archive. The survivors’ cards, naturally limited in number, often provided exclusive information about their fate.
Bibi1581.com can only wonder if somewhere in the maddening structure of the KGB there exists an identity card of my uncle who vanished while in custody of the state in 1953 and was reported shipped to the gold mines of the Soviet Union labor caps in the Kolyma River Far East region, never to be heard of again.
