    “Sex-separate the SiS homes or put the gang-criminal guys in regular prison, not in SiS homes you can escape from. If there is a lack of space in the prisons: build bunk beds to increase capacity. Only 900 of the country’s 4,500 cells currently have it,” he says.

  • Why does Russia celebrate a Victory Day from 1945? The Russian Federation was formed in 1991 and has nothing to do with WWII. At the time, Russia was only a state in the Soviet Union.


    Victory Day began to be celebrated in Russia after the fall of Nazi Germany in 1945. In fact, after the fall of the Soviet Union, the parades stopped for a while. But in 1995 the celebration was resumed again.

  • Danny Saucedo isn’t making his acting debut now is he? Wasn’t he in Evil?


    Entirely correct! He was an extra in the fight scene in Ondskan.

    However, he himself says that “Scenes from a Marriage” is his acting debut. Maybe he himself makes a difference between extras and acting?

    Regardless – well done Ninna!

  • Which party in Sweden is the 9th largest?



    The largest party outside the Riksdag, i.e. the ninth largest party, is the Nyans party. They received 28,352 votes, which is equivalent to 0.44 percent of the turnout in the 2022 election.

    In the 2018 and 2014 elections, the Feminist initiative was the largest, but they have retreated significantly and were in this election at 0.05 percent.

  • Shouldn’t journalists be able to tell the difference between them and them?


    Hi Ante! You may think so, of course, but we are not flawless and can make mistakes. We correct them when they are brought to our attention by our colleagues or our keen readers!

  • Why is the headline “Russia: Residents forcibly evacuated from Zaporizhzhya” !? Zaporizhzhya and Europe’s largest nuclear power plant is in Ukraine NOT Russia. Despite occupation and annexation, as far as I know, almost no one except Russia itself recognizes the region as Russian.


    Hi Stefan! In this case, “Russia” should be read as the Russian side in the war, who are the ones who decided on the forced evacuation. It does not imply recognition of the areas as Russian.
