Details: Russia has dusted off the T-54 tank
Tanks from the 1940s have been dusted off and photographed as they are transported by train on their way to Ukraine, Insider reports, citing a group that monitors Russian military.
The images show the T-54 tank, which began production in the Soviet Union in 1947, and its successor, the T-55.
Earlier in the war, Russia deployed the T-62 tank, also dated but originating from the 1960s.

UN: More and more people are being killed in Mali
In a report produced by the UN mission Minusma in Mali, it is stated that at least 1,277 people were killed in unrest in the country in 2022, compared to 584 victims in 2021.
Most of the deaths occurred in violence or were targeted killings. About 370 of those who were killed had first been kidnapped or reported as missing, TT reports.
In most cases, these are acts of violence carried out by Islamist extremist groups, according to the UN.
But a third of the cases are linked to Mali’s security forces or military.
Mali is ruled by a junta leader with whom the country’s military (Fama) also cooperates. The junta also cooperates with foreign security groups such as the Russian Wagner Group.
Sweden has withdrawn its military contribution to Minusma since Mali’s military demanded that France leave the country.
Minusma is the UN’s deadliest mission ever.

Badgers cause stoppages in train traffic in the Netherlands

Badgers digging pot under railway tracks have caused widespread disruption to train traffic in the Netherlands, TT reports with reference to the BBC.
On Tuesday, the section between Den Bosch and Boxtel had to be closed due to badger activity and according to the CEO of the train company Protrail, it is the second time in a week that this has happened.
Train traffic is not expected to run according to the timetable until next week.
Earlier in March, train traffic outside Molkwerum in the northern parts of the country was also stopped due to the progress of badgers under the tracks. Train traffic there is expected to be suspended until next month.
Now Protrail and the Ministry of Infrastructure in the Netherlands have had crisis meetings as a result of the badgers’ activity.
However, the problem seems intractable as the badger is protected and permission is required to move it.
The plan is now to create a sandhill in the hope that the badgers will nest there instead of under the train tracks.

Hello, please write why Volvo must be fined in the USA. Kind regards, MATHIAS
Hi Mathias! Volvo is considered to have failed in its accident and safety reporting in the US.
More precisely, it is about “late damage reports, slow recalls and late error messages to affected vehicle owners”, according to the Swedish truck industry magazine Pro.
In addition, they allegedly provided insufficient information about accidents where people were killed or injured in their trucks or buses.
Why does the media write so much about the banks? eg bank crash, people just get more worried and people withdraw their money and then we get a bank crash, doesn’t the media have a responsibility here?
Understand your point Mats.
But it would be direct misconduct on our part not to report what we know about what is happening. Especially with the aim of influencing events by keeping people uninformed…
