Defining moment in the Battle of Donbass, as the 4-month long defiant Ukrainian resistance to the Russian offensive is ending

The meet-up location of NATO foreign ministers on November 29-30— Bucharest — was where ten years ago, former US President George W.

Yet it has recently been revealed that NHS England are relying on this flawed approach to justify their mask requirements in healthcare settings.
