image for Russian Official Demands Putin End War, Gets Escorted Out of Meeting

A Russian official who demanded that President Vladimir Putin end the war against Ukraine was branded a traitor, escorted out of a high-level meeting and denied the right to vote, according to local media reports.

"We understand that if our country does not stop the military operation, there will be even more orphans in our country," said Vasyukevich.

"During the military operation, young people who could bring great benefit to our country die and become disabled.".

The incident, which has been described as a "provocation" by Russian state-run media, reportedly prompted a backlash from the region's governor, Oleg Kozhemyako, who called the official a "traitor.".

In response, the governor accused Vasyukevich of "defaming the Russian army and our defenders who are in the fight against Nazism.".

The region's legislative assembly then escorted Vasyukevich and his colleague, Gennady Shulga, from the meeting.

They were both denied the right to vote at the session, reported independent Russian language news outlet MediaZona. »

Barrister Lincoln Crowley QC will become the first Indigenous judge to preside over an Australian superior court, after he was appointed to the supreme court of Queensland.

Colleagues said Crowley, a well-regarded barrister and former crown prosecutor who was made Queen’s Counsel in 2018, had broken a significant barrier for First Nations people.

“It has taken a long time for Indigenous people in Australia to be appointed to any superior court and it’s very significant that Lincoln Crowley is the first such appointment,” said Tony McAvoy, who in 2015 became the first Indigenous Australian appointed senior counsel. »
