On blockades, rescue lanes and a staged media outrage [Riot Turtle]

Berlin. On October 31, a woman was seriously injured (This original German version of this article was written before the woman passed away, Enough 14) after being hit by a concrete mixer in Berlin. Such accidents are always a tragedy. It is even more tragic when a rescue truck is stuck because there is no rescue lane in a traffic jam caused by a blockade. In this case a blockade by Last Generation activists. Activists always have a responsibility when they carry out an action. They always have to weigh things up. There is no doubt about that. I sincerely hope that the injured woman will fully recover, but there is no justification for the death threats against climate activists by far-right radicals fed by a dishonest media outrage and political clowns screaming for harsher punishments.

This text will give you an overview of how prisoners are treated and used in war by both the Ukrainian and Russian state. We are not going to cover the topic of war prisoners (soldiers who were captured by the enemy and placed in special prison) as their conditions of imprisonment and prospects of release depends in many ways on diplomatic relations.
