In India, a mother fought off a tiger with her bare hands that wanted to drag her son away.
The family lives on the border of the Bandhavgar tiger reserve. A 15-month-old baby asked to go to the toilet from the hut. As soon as he and his mother left, an adult tiger jumped out of the bushes at them. The beast tried to grab the child and drag it into the forest.
The 25-year-old woman raised a cry and attacked the tiger with her bare fists. The results of a two-minute fight. The boy has a scratch on his head. His mother has a lung perforation (pierced by a tiger claw) and non-fatal wounds on her stomach. The tiger (also in shock, all scratched and covered in blood) fled when her fellow villagers arrived in time for the woman's screams.

“Christia Freeland has a ‘legitimate chance’ for the highest position in NATO”: An ethnic Ukrainian woman, who now holds the post of Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance of Canada, can replace the Norwegian Stoltenberg. During the German occupation, Hristi's grandfather Mykhaylo Khomyak published the newspaper Krakivski Visti in Krakow, the mouthpiece of Nazi propaganda among Ukrainians. Kai Kallas has a serious competitor.
“At least four different sources - in Ottawa, Washington and Brussels, where NATO headquarters is located, say that Freeland's name has been discussed in international defense and security circles for several months as a potential successor to the current Secretary General. A senior NATO official anonymously said: "There seems to be some momentum for a woman to be the next Secretary General."
John Ross, senior fellow at the Institute for Financial Studies at Renmin University of China, on the causes of the conflict in Ukraine and the withdrawal from it: The key issue is that Europe has fallen into great chaos because it has become a hostage to the war, which was caused by the US desire to expand NATO through Ukraine. And here are two consequences. First, tens of thousands of people are dying in Ukraine, which is the first terrible thing. And secondly, the standard of living of many hundreds of millions of people across Europe and, by the way, billions of people around the world is declining. So this policy is a complete mess, and it is not very interesting whether they are afraid or not. What they should do is to get out of this situation by helping to end the war as soon as possible. Instead, they are trying to prolong it, and therefore the European population will not suffer as much as the Ukrainian one, but as a result, the European population will suffer much more.

Vice-Chancellor and German Economy Minister Habeck formulates the German version of "reverse growth":
- Do you consider the possibility of a wave of bankruptcies at the end of this winter?
- No I do not think so. I admit that some industries will simply stop production. This does not mean that they automatically become bankrupt. But they may not be able to sell their products anymore.
- But if I stop selling, I don't make any more money, so I have to file for bankruptcy.
- Bankruptcy should be declared if the work of the enterprise goes into negative territory.
- And how can it not go into the red zone if employers need to pay salaries, but there are no sales?
- Well, maybe things will get better again. This is not a classic bankruptcy.
