This week in the world the offensive of the Ukrainian Army, the recovered territories and the annexation of four Ukrainian regions by Russia were news. In Latin America, the announcement of the resumption of peace talks between the Government and the guerrillas of the National Liberation Army (ELN) stood out in Colombia; and in Peru, the start of the summit of the Organization of American States (OAS). Finally, we met the winners of the 2022 Nobel Prizes.
The advances of the Ukrainian troops were confirmed by Vladimir Saldo, the Russian-installed leader in the Kherson region. But the breakthrough is also taking place in the Luhansk region, Kharkiv and Zaporizhia. Meanwhile in Moscow, Russian President Vladimir Putin welcomed the four annexed regions to the Federation.
In Colombia, the government led by Gustavo Petro and the guerrillas of the National Liberation Army (ELN) announced the resumption of peace talks. After four years of suspension, the parties agreed to re-establish a dialogue table from the first week of November. The talks will have rotating venues, the first is yet to be defined and will have Cuba, Venezuela and Norway as guarantor countries. Spain and Chile were also open to being guarantors.
The Summit of the Organization of American States (OAS) began in Lima, Peru, a meeting whose motto was “Together against inequality and discrimination.” The meeting has also had a wide debate on democracy, vulnerability, economy and migration. From the United States there were announcements about aid for the immigration issue, in addition to support for the “total peace” plan proposed by Colombia, rejection of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and questions about the recognition of Juan Guaidó as president or self-proclaimed president from Venezuela.
This week several Nobel prizes were awarded, the winners of the categories of physiology or medicine, physics, chemistry, literature and peace were announced. Like every year, the delivery of these Swedish and Norwegian awards generates controversy and accusations of having been politicized and of being rigged in terms of nomination and selection by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, the Karolinska Institute, the Swedish Academy and the Committee Nobel Prize Norwegian.
