    On 21 February an international conference titled EU-Russia “Release-activity phenomenon: application prospectives in medicine and technology” was held in the European Parliament. An international group of scientists from France, UK, USA, Norway and Russia met to discuss an idea put forward by Russian Professor Oleg Epstein on cooperation.

    Epstein, who opened the conference, said that release-active drugs, and especially release-active antibodies, open up new opportunities in medicine. The modifying effect of these on an original substance can be used in technology to develop new materials, especially in nanotechnology.

    Several members of the European Parliament representing different countries (UK, France, Germany, Romania), as well as members of the Belgian Parliament attended the round table dedicated to the phenomenon of release-activity medicine and acknowledged the importance of this research.

    The conference host and member of European Parliament Bill Etheridge said: “This is an example of successful cooperation between Russia and the EU in the period of complicated relations between our countries. In the era of information society, when communication links actually erase state borders, this is an excellent example of how scientific activity can become a unifying motive, a point of contact and interaction in the establishment of political cooperation between the countries of Europe and the Russian Federation. We, as politicians, should encourage and develop such contacts between scientists of our countries to solve the global issues of humanity in the field of public health maintenance.”

    The MEP from France, Dominique Bilde, underlined that it was very important to support cooperation between Russia and EU in the scientific sphere. She stressed the importance of the fight against diabetes which is one of the most dangerous and widespread diseases, especially in France.

    Professor Sebastian Johnston from the Imperial College in London noted how products containing release-active antibodies that boost immune proteins may possess antiviral/anti-inflammatory effects which could make them attractive for the treatment of illnesses induced by rhinoviruses, such as asthma exacerbations.

    The world-famous French Professor Jean-Claude Chermann, who discovered the human immunodeficiency virus, confirmed the findings of his British colleague, highlighting that “release-active antibodies can potentially be used as a part of combined therapy of viral infections including those caused by viral strains resistant to standard medicines”.

    An expert in experimental diabetics treatment, professor Bernard Portha, explained that complex drugs containing release-active antibodies are effective in significantly improving glucose homeostasis.

    David Coburn, a member of European Parliament from Scotland said: “Innovations often face difficulties that are associated not only with the novelty of study approach, but also with its implementation, and often – with untimely acceptance by the scientific community, because breakthrough technologies usually transform the existing paradigm of scientific knowledge. The history of science is full of examples when novel achievements have been ignored for decades before their acknowledgement, let alone implementation.

    “Now we face a lot of medical challenges that require urgent solutions, since they affect human life and health. We should fully support all the promising breakthroughs, with adequate attention paid to the quality of the related work, without doubt.

    “There is solid scientific evidence of the relevance of research work carried out in the area of ultra-high dilutions of substances, despite the fact that the understanding of the underlying processes is still difficult. We as politicians should support these extraordinary investigations. The main thing I see here is that Russians and West work together and that’s great.”

    MEP France Jamet said: “It was a very interesting conference. Diabetes is a disease that has been well-known for a long time and I’m happy that nowadays there are new ways to deal with it using release-active drugs. Also politicians should make their contribution in the development of scientific cooperation. And today I can say for sure that cooperation between Russia and European Union exists and it is continued”.

    MEP Nathan Gill said: “Usually it is difficult for politicians of the European Parliament to attend this kind of scientific events because of lack of time, and especially one lasting three hours. But I enjoyed this conference and I am really excited by what I have seen and what I have heard. Particularly so, because I’m diabetic myself.”

    Gill emphasized that “cooperation in the areas of science and medicine is a good example for us politicians, because scientists and medical specialists work for people”. Gill pointed out that diseases know no borders, and in this regard medical work is especially important because medical scientists do what patients really need.

    Dr Mikhail Putilovsky explained the results of clinical research sponsored by Materia Medica Holdings. During the last 20 years in collaboration with other leading international research institutes, Materia Medica has created a biotechnological platform based on technologically processed antibodies. It has already resulted in a number of innovative drugs for treatment of various diseases including infections, diabetes, urological and neurological disorders.

    As a result of the conference, EP deputies signed a communiqué stating that “today humankind faces global problems in public health protection” but the conference participants believe that the presented scientific data on the release-activity phenomenon have been convincing.

    The field itself is relevant and certainly should be developed further as part of a promising and potentially groundbreaking technology.

    DESTRUCTIVE HAILSTORMS will become more frequent and violent with increasingly larger hail, predicted solar researcher Valentina Zharkova back in 2019 when she stated that it's one of many signs of an impending Grand Solar Minimum. This is exactly what we have witnessed this year in both Europe and the world. Here is the German town of Benediktbeuern in Bavaria after a hailstorm on August 26th. Almost all rooftops and cars were damaged. The centuries-old church and monastery were damaged for the first time ever. Interestingly, the monastery was rebuilt in 1699 during the Maunder Minimum. Combined with heavy rainfall, extreme weather will devastate a significant portion of our food production. For instance, heavy rainfall destroyed a quarter of all crops in Greece in just two days in September. However, mainstream media remains silent. Photo: X @safe0007/Sandor Feher

    NOAA Predicts Zero Sunspots for Almost the Whole 2030s

    CLIMATEThe United States' government scientific organization, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), predicts zero sunspots from 2031 to 2040. This is an extreme situation that has not occurred in as long as humanity has been counting sunspots, and it leads us into uncharted territory in terms of our solar system. However, this prediction aligns with the warnings of the world-renowned solar researcher Valentina Zharkova for many years, who indicated in 2019 various signs of this catastrophic phenomenon, including the extreme hailstorms we have seen in Europe and the world this summer. The forecast and various observations this year give cause for very significant concern. In this unique analysis, Free West Media explains why.

    NATIONALIST COLLABORATION TAKES SHAPE. Six parties met in Budapest on August 26th to sign a joint declaration confirming the friendship and political unity among the parties. The goal is to either form a new group in the European Parliament after the EU elections in June next year or to reconstitute the existing Identity and Democracy (ID) group with the new parties.

    European Nationalist Parties Forge Cooperation Ahead of EU Elections

    EUROPEAN ELECTIONSOn Saturday, August 26, representatives of six European nationalist parties gathered in Budapest. The meeting was initiated by the Hungarian party Mi Hazánk and took place in the national parliament. Representatives of the parties signed a joint declaration that not only reaffirms the parties' friendship but also their unity on a range of complex political issues. A surprisingly clear and radical manifesto was established. The hope is that this cooperation will lead to success in the EU elections and eventually result in the formation of a group in the European Parliament. For Swedish nationalism, this meeting marks a success as Sweden, for the first time, has a party represented in a leading nationalist cooperation in Europe. Free West Media was present at this historic event.

    Turkey Believes Sweden Hasn’t Done Enough

    Sweden will have to wait a bit longer for NATO membership, according to Turkey's Justice Minister Jilmaz Tunc. First, Sweden must extradite the "terrorists" Turkey wants and stop the desecration of the Quran.

    Swedish Weapon Takes Down Russia’s Best Attack Helicopter

    The Russian attack helicopter Ka-52 is considered one of the world's best and has struck fear in Ukraine, where it has hunted down tanks and other armored vehicles, often beyond the range of many light anti-aircraft systems. However, it has met its match in the Swedish air defense missile system RBS 70, which has quickly led to significant losses for the Russian helicopter forces.

    Alternative for Germany held its conference during the last weekend of July in the thousand-year-old city of Magdeburg, located by the Elbe River in the eastern German state of Saxony. The first of the two conference days began with a strong program speech by the party's male spokesperson. Subsequently, party officials were elected and motions were addressed. The second day was entirely devoted to candidate selection and positioning for the EU election in June next year. Screenshot: AfD on Facebook

    Strong Confidence in German AfD

    Alternative for Germany (AfD) held a party conference on July 29-30 to select candidates for the upcoming EU election next year. EU Parliament member Maximilian Krah, belonging to the party's more radical, ethnonationalist faction, was appointed as the top candidate. The party's two spokespersons delivered powerful speeches criticizing the EU's failed migration policy and trade sanctions that isolate Europe and Germany from the rest of the world. They argued that it's time for the EU to return a significant portion of its power to national parliaments. However, they have dropped the demand for Germany to exit the EU.

    Maximilian Krah is one of the AfD politicians who is singled out as an ethnonationalist, as he has stated that there is a distinction between ethnic Germans and immigrants who have obtained German citizenship. Krah is a Member of the European Parliament and AfD's top candidate for the upcoming European Union election next year. Still image: AfD on Facebook

    The Establishment Wants to Ban Germany’s Second Largest Party – for the Sake of Democracy

    The rising popularity of AfD has raised strong concerns within the establishment. Despite lies and demonization in the media and isolation from the overall political establishment, the party continues to grow. Certain representatives of the party are accused of becoming increasingly "extreme," and in an unusual move, the influential weekly newspaper Der Spiegel demanded that AfD be "banned."

    FvD was quick to support the protests against covid restrictions. Today, the party also stands behind the farmers protests against the governments’ plans to close a big portion of the farms in the country for the sake of “climate”.

    The Ursula von der Leyen Affair

    After a criminal complaint in Belgium against the President of the European Commission, the so-called SMS-case, now takes a new turn. The judge responsible for the investigation will likely gain access to the secret messages exchanged between Ursula von der Leyen and Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer, at least if they haven't been deleted.

    Publisher of Unique Literature Worldwide Blocked by International Distributor

    Arktos has distinguished itself by publishing groundbreaking philosophers and social critics. Now, the publisher's international distributor has abruptly terminated the cooperation, and more than 400 already printed titles cannot reach their audience. There is strong evidence that the distributor has been under pressure, something that has also happened in Sweden. We have spoken with Arktos founder Daniel Friberg about the ongoing struggle for freedom of speech in a shrinking cultural corridor.
