‘Suedwestpresse’ says that considering the first Russian-African summit in Sotschi (40 heads of states from African countries were invited) Putin promised to double Russia’s trade with Africa within the four years to come. Objects of interest would be oil-, gas-, and diamond resources: Hopes other than that – from a Russian point of view – involve potential future orders from African companies that will want to build a power plant, potential future African customers who would order more Russian firearms and African communities and institutions that may want to become more digitalized and networked.

While most German news shows on the radio and the TV and most German newspapers seem to have forgotten about Syria, ‘Unicef’ still advertises aid-projects in Syria. They say that violence in northeast Syria is still putting the lives of thousands of already vulnerable children at imminent risk of displacement, injury, or death.
At least four children have been killed and nearly 70,000 have been forced to flee their homes which means they now live as refugees – probably in a refugee camp or on the street. Many affected families however are taking shelter in schools that currently are out of order and buildings that are still under construction. Either way they have no access to proper care and supplies.
Health facilities and vehicles have been attacked and a water station has been caught in the cross-fire, leaving at least 400,000 people in the area without access to clean, safe drinking water.

‘GEA’ says that last year 20 millions of all online orders that after arrival were sent back to amazon and company then were destroyed by the latter even though almost half of these goods still was good enough to be donated. Sure some of these goods couldn’t be donated for hygienic or safety reasons or because they were damaged, but they say that the main reason is that in some countries (including Germany) enterprises need to pay taxes for donating these returned goods instead of disposing off them.
