The body of leading Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny has been returned to his mother, his spokeswoman says.

In a post on X, Kira Yarmysh thanked everybody who had demanded that the authorities hand over his remains.

“The funeral is yet to take place,” she wrote.

Navalny’s mother Lyudmila had reportedly been told to agree to a “secret” burial. If she refused, he would be buried at the prison colony where he died.

She has spent the last week in the town close to the prison where he died, trying to first confirm the location of his body then demanding it be returned to her.

After signing a death certificate saying he had died of natural causes, she was then given three hours to agree to a “secret” funeral for her son.

If she didn’t agree he would be buried within the grounds of the prison where he died, Ms Yarmysh said his mother was told.

However, Lyudmila had apparently refused to negotiate with the authorities.

Ms Yarmysh said the funeral plans were still not clear.

“We don’t know whether the authorities will interfere with it being carried out in the way the family wants and as Alexei deserves,” she said.

Earlier on Saturday, Navalny’s widow, Yulia Navalnaya, accused Vladimir Putin of holding her late husband’s body “hostage” and demanded its release without conditions.

“Give us the body of my husband,” she demanded in a video address.

“You tortured him alive, and now you keep torturing him dead. You mock the remains of the dead.”

Ms Navalnaya again accused the Russian president of being behind the death of her husband.

The Kremlin has denied the allegations, calling Western reaction to the death “hysterical”.

Navalny died on 16 February in a Russian prison inside the Arctic Circle.

Details about what happened to him remain scarce. His team has offered security officers €20,000 ($22,000; £17,000) in reward and assistance in leaving Russia in exchange for information about his death in prison.

For years, he was the most high-profile critic of the Russian leader.

In August 2020, Navalny was poisoned using the Novichok nerve agent by a team of would-be assassins from the Russian secret services.

Airlifted to Germany, he recovered there before returning to Russia in January 2021, where he was imprisoned.

Attempts at commemorating his death have been met by a heavy-hanhttps://curanmai.com/ded response from Russian authorities, with makeshift monuments cleared and hundreds arrested.

PSI Masih Berpeluang Lolos Ambang Batas Parlemen

Logo Pemilu 2024. (Foto: Ist)

BLEJERMOT.com  Rakyat Merdeka – Direktur Eksekutif Data Riset Analitika Nana Kardina menilai, Partai Solidaritas Indonesia (PSI)  masih berpeluang lolos ambang batas parlemen 4 persen. Menurut datanya, sejak 2 pekan jelang pencoblosan elektabilitas partai pimpinan Kaesang Pangarep itu sudah memenuhi 4 persen suara.

“Survei Data Riset Analitika pada 2-3 minggu menjelang pencoblosan mencatat elektabilitas PSI berada di atas ambang batas (parliamentary threshold) 4 persen,” kata Nana saat dihubungi wartawan, Sabtu (24/2/2024).

Sementara itu, Nana melanjutkan, dari hasil quick count dari sejumlah lembaga survei, PSI berada pada kisaran 2,62-2,90 persen, atau mendekati 3 persen. Kemudian, dengan memperhitungkan margin of error di atas 1 persen, PSI masih memiliki peluang untuk meraih suara 4 persen. 

“Jika kita melihat data Sirekap KPU per 23 Februari 2024, data perolehan suara yang masuk dari seluruh TPS di Indonesia baru mencapai 62,09 persen, sehingga masih ada kemungkinan suara dari kantung-kantung pemilih PSI yang belum terhimpun,” ucapnya.

Nana menambahkan, di sejumlah daerah juga masih berlangsung pemilu ulang (PSU), pemilu lanjutan, dan pemilu susulan karena berbagai penyebab. Selain itu PSI, menengarai adanya surat suara yang rusak atau tidak sah mencapai 10 persen pada Pemilu Legislatif 2024, melonjak dari sebelumnya rata-rata 3-4 persen.

“Dengan keterbatasan saksi dari PSI, ada kemungkinan upaya mencurangi suara yang diperoleh PSI. Jika PSI bisa membuktikan temuan tersebut dan mengajukan gugatan, masih terbuka kemungkinan bagi PSI untuk menambah suara,” terangnya.

Nana melanjutkan, jika dilihat dari dapil-dapil di mana PSI memperoleh suara yang cukup signifikan, perolehan suara PSI memang lebih banyak diperoleh dari mencoblos partai dibanding suara caleg. Menurutnya, harus diakui bahwa PSI masih belum memiliki tokoh-tokoh yang populer sebagai vote getter, berbeda dari partai-partai besar yang sudah mapan di Senayan.

“Hanya beberapa nama yang cukup akrab dikenal publik seperti mantan ketua umum Grace Natalie dan Giring Ganesha, atau selebritis Helmi Yahya, yang relatif bisa mendulang suara melampaui suara partai,” katanya.

“Hal ini sekaligus menjadi catatan bagi PSI untuk bisa merekrut tokoh-tokoh potensial dan membesarkan kader-kader internal jika ingin meraih suara lebih besar lagi dalam pemilu berikutnya,” pungkasnya.https://curanmai.com/

Ukraine says it has downed second Russian A-50 spy plane in weeks

BBC News

Ukraine says it has downed a Russian A-50 military spy plane – the second such claim in just over a month.

The plane was hit between the Russian cities of Rostov-on-Don and Krasnodar, Ukrainian military sources said, over 200km (124 miles) from the front line.

Emergency services reportedly found plane fragments in Kanevskoy district and put out a raging fire.

Russia has not commented on the claim. Saturday marks two years since Russia launched a full-scale invasion.

The head of Ukraine’s Air Force Mykola Oleshchuk thanked his service and military intelligence for helping to bring down the plane – a long-range radar detection aircraft – on Friday and noted the incident coincided with a key Russian military holiday.

“Congratulations to the occupiers on the Defender of the Fatherland Day,” he said on Telegram.

Video shared online shows the moment the plane appears to be shot down in the air, as well as huge flames and thick, dark smoke seemingly rising after the crash.

Krasnodar’s emergency authorities later said an aircraft had crashed near the Trudovaya Armenia village, Kanevskoy district, and a fire was later extinguished. It provided no further details.

Meanwhile, at least one Russian military-aligned Telegram channel suggested the plane may have come down as a result of friendly fire. Fighterbomber wrote: “At the moment it is unknown who shot it down.”

Ukraine last claimed to have shot down an A-50 on 14 January.

A previous briefing from the UK’s ministry of defence said that Russia probably had six operational A-50s in service.

The plane, which detects air defences and co-ordinates targets for Russian jets, can cost hundreds of millions of dollars to build.

Ukraine has struggled to make significant advances against Russian forces in the south-east recently.

In last month’s incident, Ukrainian army officials said an Il-22 control centre plane was destroyed as well as the A-50.

In other developments:

  • One person was killed and another three injured in a Russian drone attack on Ukraine’s southern port of Odesa on Friday evening, local officials said
  • Ukraine’s top security official warned that Russian President Vladimir Putin would try to settle the Ukraine issue before November’s US presidential election, by seizing more territory and destabilising the country
  • UK Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said his country was prepared to do “whatever it takes” to help Ukraine prevail
  • French President Emmanuel Macron said “Ukraine is fighting for itself, for its ideals, for our Europe. Our commitment at its side will not waver”
  • Blasts and a fire were reported in the early hours of Saturday at a metallurgical plant in Lipetsk, western Russia, with the local governor suggesting it was caused by an “aircraft crash”https://curanmai.com/

Jesse Baird: ‘Grave concerns’ over TV presenter and boyfriend Luke Davies missing in Sydney

By Andre Rhoden-Paul

BBC News

Police say they have “grave concerns” over a TV presenter and his boyfriend who disappeared in Sydney in suspicious circumstances.

Possessions belonging to ex-Network 10 presenter Jesse Baird, 26, and Luke Davies, 29, were found on Wednesday in a bin in a suburb of the city.

Police have been trying to locate a third man – named by local media as a police officer who had dated Mr Baird.

On Friday morning, a man was taken into custody at a local police station.

New South Wales (NSW) Police have not confirmed if the 28-year-old – who handed himself in – is the man they were seeking to question over the disappearances.

It comes after officers searched a home in the Balmain area of Sydney on Thursday night, seizing a number of items.

Officers found blood and moved furniture at Mr Baird’s home in the Paddington area, around 28km (17 miles) from Cronulla, the suburb where a worker found the couple’s belongings in a bin.

Blood-stained clothes, a phone and credit cards were among the items found.

Police believe the couple were in Paddington on Monday. CCTV footage obtained by 7NewsAustralia shows what it says appears to be the couple going into Mr Baird’s flatshare.

CCTV footage showing a white van in the area was also being looked at by police, the news outlet said.

Qantas flight attendant Mr Davies has not been in contact with his family or attended work since Monday, according to police.

Det Supt Jodi Radmore said all lines of inquiry were being investigated and told reporters: “We do believe, from the crime scene at Paddington and from property located at Cronulla, that there has been some sort of incident.”

She added that had given the force “great concerns for one, possibly both their safety”.

“Witnesses described a verbal argument,” she continued, “but it wasn’t reported to police at the time … it was only reported to police yesterday [Monday morning] during canvassing.”

New South Wales Police are appealing for information.

Mr Baird had been a presenter and red carpet reporter on Network 10’s morning show Studio 10 until the show was axed in December.

Qantas said it was providing support to Mr Davies’ colleagues.

“Our thoughts are with family, friends and colleagues of our crew member at this very difficult time,” the airline said in a statement.https://curanmai.com/

Kominfo Bagikan Jurus Aman Bermedsos untuk Pelajar dan Santri

BLEJERMOT.com  Rakyat Merdeka – Berinternet merupakan kegiatan yang dilakukan banyak orang hampir setiap hari, bahkan setiap saat. Yang harus diwaspadai, berkembangnya teknologi dalam dunia internet, ternyata berjalan seiring dengan munculnya beragam tindak kejahatan siber.

”Karena itu, pastikan Anda aman berinternet. Antara lain dengan menerapkan komunikasi digital secara baik, mencakup etika dan pemahaman tentang bagaimana berinteraksi secara online,” kata Direktur Utama PT Tumbuh Bersama Bangsa dan founder edufair.id AA Ngurah Bagus Aristayudha, dalam webinar literasi digital yang digelar Kementerian Komunikasi dan Informatika (Kominfo) bekerja sama dengan Dinas Pendidikan dan Kebudayaan Nusa Tenggara Barat (NTB) untuk komunitas pendidikan, di Kabupaten Dompu, Kamis (22/2).

Webinar ini diikuti secara nobar oleh para siswa dan santri di sejumlah sekolah. Di antaranya SMAN 1 dan 2 Dompu, SMPN 4 Dompu, SMAN 1 dan 2 Woja, SMPN 1 dan 3 Woja, SMP-IT Imam Bukhori Dompu, serta MAN Dompu.

Mengusung tema ”Digital Safety 101: Dasar Keamanan Akun Media Sosial”, webinar ini merupakan kegiatan pertama yang digelar di NTB dalam bingkai kegiatan Gerakan Nasional Literasi Digital (GNLD) 2024.

Aristayudha tidak sendiri. Hadir pula secara online dua pembicara lain, yakni musisi Roland International Mia Marcellina dan Mom Influencer Ana Livian, serta Anissa Rilia yang bertindak selaku host.

Aristayudha menambahkan, pengguna internet di Indonesia yang semakin meningkat setiap tahun. Peningkatan ini mesti dibarengi dengan menumbuhkan kesadaran menjaga keamanan perangkat dan akun media sosial oleh penggunanya.

”Salah satu kunci keamanan digital adalah bikin password yang kuat dan unik. Yang lagi tren misalnya, penggunaan password alay, multi icon, ada huruf besar dan kecil, juga penggunaan angka dan emoticon lucu,” tuturnya.

Password alay, lanjut Aristayudha, justru lebih jitu menjadi fitur keamanan akun pribadi dibandingkan memakai nama akhir pacar atau tanggal lahir.

”Tidak kalah penting, lakukan otentikasi dua faktor dan sering ubah password dalam waktu tertentu agar akun lebih aman dari serangan beragam kejahatan siber,” saran dosen Bisnis Digital Universitas Bali Internasional (UNBI) ini.

Mia Marcellina, yang menjadi pembicara kedua, menekankan semakin seriusnya ancaman penjahat siber yang harus ditangkal. Di antaranya penipuan, kejahatan, dan pencurian akun. Lalu, malware, phising, scam, password lemah, serta human error adalah hal-hal yang sebaiknya diketahui oleh pengguna digital untuk mencegah terjadinya risiko.

”Untuk menghindari berbagai potensi buruk itu, salah satunya jangan sembarang klik link. Klik hanya situs dengan tanda http yang ada ’s’-nya, karena ’s’ itu artinya secured. Bahayanya, mereka bisa mengakses dan menyedot saldo m-banking kita. Sudah banyak korban,” jelas Mia.

Zaman memang sudah jauh berubah. Etika dalam bermedia sosial pun mesti dijaga. ”Jejak digital sangat berbahaya kalau tidak dijaga. Dulu, berlaku mulutmu harimaumu, sekarang menjadi jarimu harimaumu. Jaga betul jarimu saat bergaul di ruang digital, think before text,” pungkas Ana Livian.

Untuk diketahui, kegiatan #literasidigitalkominfo yang digelar sejak 2017, merupakan program nasional untuk meningkatkan literasi digital 50 juta masyarakat Indonesia pada 2024. Program Indonesia #MakinCakapDigital (IMCD) ini membahas setiap tema dari sudut pandang empat pilar utama. Yakni, kecakapan digital, etika digital, keamanan digital, dan budaya digital.

Berkolaborasi dengan Siber Kreasi dan 142 mitra jejaring seperti akademisi, perusahaan teknologi, serta organisasi masyarakat sipil, program ini membidik segmen pendidikan dan segmen kelompok masyarakat sebagai peserta.

Program literasi digital dipandang penting, utamanya untuk meningkatkan kemampuan masyarakat Indonesia dalam memanfaatkan teknologi digital secara positif, kreatif, produktif, dan aman.

Kecakapan digital menjadi kian urgen, karena–menurut survei Asosiasi Penyelenggara Jasa Internet Indonesia (APJII)–pengguna internet di Indonesia pada 2024 telah mencapai 221,5 juta jiwa dari total populasi 278,7 juta jiwa penduduk Indonesia.https://curanmai.com/

Alexei Navalny: UK sanctions Russian prison chiefs after activist’s death

Navalny in 2020
Image caption,Alexei Navalny, pictured here at a rally in 2020, was President Vladimir Putin’s fiercest critic

By James Gregory & James Landale, diplomatic correspondent

BBC News

The UK has frozen the assets of six Russian prison bosses in charge of the Arctic penal colony where opposition leader Alexei Navalny died.

They will also be banned from travelling to the UK, which the Foreign Office says is the first country to impose sanctions over his death.

Foreign Secretary Lord Cameron said those responsible for Navalny’s “brutal treatment” would be held accountable.

But there has been criticism that the latest sanctions do not go far enough.

Western leaders say the blame for Navalny’s death lies with the Russian authorities, including President Vladimir Putin.

The US has also announced it will be unveiling its own package of sanctions against Russia over Navalny’s death and the ongoing war in Ukraine on Friday.

The British government has called for Navalny’s body to be released to his family immediately and for a full and transparent investigation to take place.

The appeal from the UK echoes similar calls from Navalny’s mother, who was filmed on Tuesday outside the colony where he died saying she had been trying to see him for five days but did not even know where he was.

Those sanctioned by the UK are:

  • Col Vadim Konstantinovich Kalinin – head of the penal colony
  • Lt Col Sergey Nikolaevich Korzhov – deputy head
  • Lt Col Vasily Alexandrovich Vydrin – deputy head
  • Lt Col Vladimir Ivanovich Pilipchik – deputy head
  • Lt Col Aleksandr Vladimirovich Golyakov – deputy head
  • Col Aleksandr Valerievich Obraztsov – deputy head

There was no suggestion any of the individuals were likely to travel to the UK before the sanctions against them.

Announcing the sanctions, Lord Cameron said it was “clear that the Russian authorities saw Navalny as a threat and they tried repeatedly to silence him”.

“No-one should doubt the oppressive nature of the Russian system,” he added.

“That’s why we’re today sanctioning the most senior prison officials responsible for his custody in the penal colony where he spent his final months.

“Those responsible for Navalny’s brutal treatment should be under no illusion – we will hold them accountable.”

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak said the UK and its allies were considering “all options to hold Russia and Putin to account”.

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer said Navalny’s death was a “reminder that Putin has stolen not just the wealth but also the future and democracy of the Russian people”.

But the minimal nature of the response has prompted criticism.

Conservative MP Alicia Kearns, who chairs the Foreign Affairs Committee, said UK measures against Russia needed to “go a lot further”.

As well as the “major package” promised by the White House, the EU is also in the process of agreeing a 13th round of sanctions against Russia.

The problem is that although Russia’s economy has been hit by unprecedented restrictions on its energy, financial and other sectors since the invasion of Ukraine, the impact has not been as great as expected.

Western policymakers are now targeting countries and companies that are helping Russia sidestep sanctions.

They are also considering exploiting – or even spending – $300bn (£238bn) of Russian state assets frozen overseas.

Both actions might perhaps concentrate minds in the Kremlin more than stopping a few officials taking their holidays in Britain.

Navalny, who was the Russian opposition’s most significant leader for the last decade, had been serving a 19-year sentence on charges many viewed as politically motivated.

The Russian prison service said he died at the IK-3 Arctic penal colony, nicknamed “Polar Wolf”, on Friday after taking a walk and suddenly collapsing.

Navalny’s team alleges he was murdered on the orders of President Putin.

The family have been told his body will not be released for two weeks.

His mother was informed it was being held for “chemical analysis”, a representative for Navalny said.

There has been no confirmation of the whereabouts of the body from Russian authorities, while efforts to locate it have been repeatedly shut down.

Navalny’s wife, Yulia Navalnaya, has alleged the body was being kept until traces of poisoning by the nerve agent Novichok had disappeared. Navalny survived an attempt to kill him using the poison in 2020.

Mr Putin has not directly commented on his death. The Kremlin did acknowledge his death and said the Russian president was aware.https://curanmai.com/

Israel Gaza: China condemns US veto of call for immediate ceasefire at UN

BBC News

China has sharply criticised the US for vetoing a UN Security Council resolution demanding an immediate ceasefire in Gaza.

Beijing said the move sent the “wrong message” and effectively gave a “green light to the continued slaughter”.

The White House said the Algerian-proposed resolution would “jeopardise” talks to end the war.

The US has proposed its own temporary ceasefire resolution, which also warned Israel not to invade the city of Rafah.

There has been widespread condemnation of the US decision to block Algeria’s resolution as fighting continued in Gaza. It was backed by 13 of the 15 members of the UN Security Council – with the UK abstaining.

In response to the veto, China’s UN ambassador Zhang Jun said the claim the motion would interfere with ongoing diplomatic negotiations was “totally untenable”.

“Given the situation on the ground, the continued passive avoidance on an immediate ceasefire is nothing different from giving a green light to the continued slaughter,” he said.

“The spill-over of the conflict is destabilising the entire Middle East region leading to rising risk of a wider war,” he added.

“Only by extinguishing the flames of war in Gaza can we prevent the fires of hell from engulfing the entire region.”

Algeria’s top UN diplomat declared that “unfortunately the Security Council failed once again”. “Examine your conscience, how will history judge you,” Amar Bendjama added.

US allies were also critical of the move. France’s UN envoy Nicolas de Rivière expressed regret that the resolution had not been adopted “given the disastrous situation on the ground”.

Linda Thomas-Greenfield, Washington’s ambassador to the UN, said it was not the right time to call for an immediate ceasefire while negotiations between Hamas and Israel were continuing.

Her UK counterpart, Barbara Woodward, said the plan could “actually make a ceasefire less likely” by endangering talks.

Israel launched its operations in Gaza following an attack by Hamas on southern Israel on 7 October, during which about 1,200 people were killed and more than 240 others taken hostage.

The Israeli military campaign has left more than 29,000 people dead in Gaza, according to the Palestinian territory’s Hamas-run health ministry.

The draft resolution proposed by the US calls for a temporary ceasefire “as soon as practicable” and on the condition that all hostages are released, as well as urging barriers on aid reaching Gaza to be lifted.

The White House has previously avoided the word “ceasefire” during UN votes on the war, but it is unclear if or when the Security Council will vote on the proposal.

It also states a major ground offensive in Rafah would result in more harm to civilians and their further displacement, including potentially into neighbouring countries – a reference to Egypt.

But Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Tuesday he was “committed to continuing the war until we achieve all of its goals” and no pressure could change it.

  • Why are Israel and Hamas fighting in Gaza?
  • Israel’s Rafah deadline raises stakes as Ramadan approaches

More than a million displaced Palestinians – about half of the Strip’s population – are crammed into Rafah after being forced to seek shelter there. The southern city, which borders Egypt, was home to only 250,000 people before the war.

Many of the displaced are living in makeshift shelters or tents in squalid conditions, with scarce access to safe drinking water or food.

The UN has issued its own warning that a planned Israeli offensive in the city could lead to a “slaughter”. The Israeli military has previously insisted it only targets Hamas fighters.

Israeli war cabinet member Benny Gantz has warned the ground assault will be launched unless Hamas frees all its hostages by 10 March.https://curanmai.com/
