According to Daily Mail Online, U.S. President Joe Biden on Thursday condemned Vladimir Putin for his invasion of the Ukraine and announced a series of new sanctions on Russian financial institutions that he said will have a ‘severe’ effect on that nation’s economy.

‘Putin is the aggressor. Putin chose this war. And now he and his country will bear the consequences,’ Biden said in remarks at the White House.  

He accused Putin of empire building with Thursday’s invasion into the Ukraine. And he said he didn’t underestimate the Russian leader’s ambitions. 

‘He has much larger ambitions than Ukraine. He wants to re-establish the former Soviet Union. That is what this is about,’ the president said.  

He said he had no plans to speak with Putin. 

Biden’s speech, which was delayed twice on Thursday afternoon as Russian forces made their way swiftly across the Ukraine. The Kremlin seized control of Chernobyl nuclear power plant after a ‘fierce’ battle with the condition of nuclear storage facilities ‘unknown’, Ukraine said, sparking fears of a radiation leak that could cause fallout in Europe. 

Video revealed Russian tanks and armoured vehicles standing in front of the destroyed reactor, which sits just 60 miles north of the capital Kyiv. 

‘Now the entire world sees clearly what Putin and his Kremlin allies are really all about. This was never about a genuine security concern on their part. It was always about naked aggression,’ the president noted. 

‘America stands up to bullies,’ he said. ‘This is who we are.’ 

Biden’s administration announced a series of new sanctions on Thursday that the president said would hurt the Russian economy for ‘both immediately and over time,’ arguing Moscow will fill the financial fallout for years.

He also said putting sanctions on Putin himself was ‘on the table’ but didn’t answer a question as to why none were announced Thursday.

But, in a baffling moment, he conceded that earlier sanctions – put on Russian financial institutions and Putin’s inner circle – didn’t prevent the Kremlin from invading its neighboring country. 

As to why the U.S. keeps imposing them, the president argued sanctions would work with time.

‘No one expected the sanctions to prevent anything from happening. It’s going to take time. And we have to show resolve so he knows what’s coming,’ Biden noted. ‘He is going to test the resolve of the West to see if we stay together.’

The robbery happened between July and October 2022.

The accused, 18-year-old Patience Botwe and 30-year-old Sarah Agyei, are facing charges before an Accra Circuit Court.

In a tweet posted on Friday, the former president questioned the minister’s choice to keep such a substantial sum of money at her residence.

“$1m + €300k and millions of GHS in a Ghanaian Minister’s home?

Even if genuinely acquired, why keep millions of hard currency at home?
Will @NAkufoAddo ever set a good example for public office holders in his administration?”, he tweed.

All you need to know about the Women from the “Hamar tribe in Ethiopia and their culture”-




Women from the Hamar tribe in Ethiopia are whipped to show their love for men going through Rite of Passage ceremony. The beatings go on until their backs turn bloody. They are not allowed to scream. They even beg the men to do this again and again because that’s their belief and culture.

They are said to be abreast with everything happening around the world,  but that has not stopped them from practising a rather bizarre culture of women proudly accepting beatings as part of an initiation ceremony for men.
On the eastern side of the Omo Valley in southern Ethiopia, the Hamar tribe have unique culture and customs, one of them being a cattle-jumping ceremony where the beatings of the women take place.

The ceremony starts with all the female relatives performing a dance, during the dance they offer themselves as subjects to be whipped by men who have recently been initiated.

The beatings go on until their backs turns into blood. During the beatings, women are not allowed to scream, they do not also flee the ceremony but rather beg the men to beat them over and over again whilst dancing.

The women accept these beatings to show their love and support of the initiate, and their scars give them a right to demand his help in time of need.
The man must subsequently leap across 16 cows in order to be allowed to marry and once that is achieved a celebration is held to end the ceremony
beatings are not just ceremonial.

Women in the Hamar tribe are subject to beatings even after the ceremony at any time the man pleases unless they give birth to at least two or three children.
The rules of the tribe also say that,

men do not need to explain why they are beating the women as they can do so as and when they feel is right.”

This has created deep scars at the backs of the women which they proudly show off as beautiful according to them.
In spite of these, women in the Hamar tribe are expected to be strong like the men and are supposed to do all household chores, take care of the children and sow crops as well as keep the cattle.

Hamar men can also marry more than one woman, but the women who are not first wives are treated more like slaves as they do a majority of the work.
