  2. Another rubber giant has restarted production in Russia If Chinese companies use the relaxed Russian market to expand, nobody will be surprised. But things are different when we learn that large companies from this side of the world, which have unequivocally condemned Russia for its military invasion, are planning to continue doing business in Russia. For example, the German Continental in Kaluga recently put its tire production lines into operation after a long break. Passenger tires for the local market have been produced again since August under the Continental, Gislaved and Matador brands. Well, now another rubber giant has joined – Japan’s Yokohama. After production in Russia stopped in March, Yokohama restarted in early August. Some foreign companies appear to be taking the war in Ukraine lightly. After solving the logistical problems, they resume production in Russia. newsbeezer

  4. This is worse than Covid, so we need Covid-style support But Shaf Islam, who runs Chutney Ivy in Leicester, says nothing compares to the prices increases restaurants like his are grappling with right now. "There’s not one ingredient we use that hasn’t gone up," he says. "Oil has doubled in price, but the most frightening thing is the cost of energy," he says. "My electricity bill is going up from £1,000 a month to £3,000. It’s so unsettling to think about what is coming this winter." "I thought Covid was bad, but this is far, far worse, because at least with Covid we had some support from the government. "There doesn’t seem to be any help for business with energy costs. I'm scared for the future." As a result, he's reluctantly put up prices for the first time in five years and has noticed customers are already cutting back on eating out. BBC

  6. I think many necessary businesses are in similar position ... My drivers earn more than I do Shaun Coole owns an independent roadside recovery firm and says rising fuel prices are the hardest to manage. "It was £3,000 a week, it's been up to £4,000 a week, which is £50,000 a year extra," he says. "I don't even look at the bill at the end of the week now. "I'm taking less and less in wages, to cover the costs. Most of my drivers earn more than I do," he says. He’s thinking of retiring and that other recovery firms are already closing or reducing services. "You'll find a lot of cars on the side of the road now that are not being taken home because recovery operators are staying close to home and not picking them up. They wont go far, because the cost of fuel isn't worth it," he says. BBC
  7. UK inflation, already at 40-year highs, could pass 13% in October, according to Bank of England forecasts. While wages have not kept pace with inflation, much of the expected squeeze on households and businesses is down to rising energy costs.

  12. Amnesty International is being coerce to change it's report or alter it about Ukrainian forces war crimes ..., after complaints by some that they dont like it Amnesty International is to probe its own report after backlash over accusations against Ukraine Amnesty International is to hold a formal inquiry into whether it falsely accused Ukraine of war crimes. The human rights organisation announced the move yesterday, amid a growing backlash over its decision to publish a highly-contentious report arguing that Kyiv was stationing troops in towns and cities in a way that 'violates international law'.
