MH17 destroyed. What are the details?

Malaysian aircraft destroyed killing hundreds of innocent victims over Ukraine airspace.

Are Russia to blame?

Ukraine Plane

By now the world has all heard of the shocking events that took place on Thursday involving airline flight MH17. The airliner, which was shot out of the sky, crashed and killed all 298 people on board. The crash site landed over Eastern Ukraine, in the midst of the Russian-Ukrainian conflict. Many forces believe that pro-Russian separatists were to blame for the downing of the aircraft, murdering its crew. The flight was on course from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur. The majority of citizens on board were Dutch. One was dual American. The others include 43 Malaysians (including 15 crew), 27 Australians, 12 Indonesians and 10 Britons (including one with dual South African nationality), four Germans, four Belgians, three from the Philippines, and one each from Canada and New Zealand.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied being at fault nor any involvement with Russia and added Ukraine “bears responsibility” for the crash. The Ukrainian government claim the pro-Russian rebels removed 38 bodies from the crash site leading to calls of cover ups.

The separatists were also accused of stealing luggage from the deceased crash victims. They also took the black box recorder and said it was “on its way to Moscow.” Why Moscow are receiving the box as well as amid fears of evidence tampering casts a dangerous light on Russia and its interactions with the world in these conflicting times.

The plane had also been carrying a UN worker and officials specialising in the AIDS health problem which casts another shadow over Russia with their recent abuses to gay citizens and assumption all gay men carry the predicament.

Ukrainian officials called it “an act of terrorism” and calls for Europe to renew its position with Russia has been mentioned.

It is believed the separatists had significant technology to shoot down the plane traced back to exclusive Russian military systems.

President Obama instantly called President Putin to discuss the situation briefly.

Whilst Putin may choose to deny the issues at hand, and in the case with the benefit of the doubt, if Russia is at fault, it needs to take responsibility rather than deny everything said towards the nation as a general routine.

Putin has had months of time to de-escalate the Ukrainian crisis and why this still continues is amazing to all among the world. Putin can call off the rebels at any time and should do so.

If this is a ‘Cold War resurgence’ of recapturing all the previous countries that sought independence from Russia should be left alone and respected. Building relationships with them as communicate countries is what is needed, not to use methods of fear to scare the world or neighbouring countries. This will only ever make Russia and Putin look weak, something they think responsibility would do instead.

What President Putin fails to understand is that any actions from pro-Russian separatists directly affect Russia and its influence on them. Reports claim the separatists were trained by Russian troops and are being used to conduct the fighting in Ukraine to directly shift full Russian blame.

The evening following the crash, on Friday, totalitarian dictator David Cameron was enjoying himself in London’s glitzy West End at the theatre watching the play Warhorse. He was said to have been informed of the on-going details.

Amid such world crisis Cameron watches theatre plays instead on night out.

Russia had also been accused of using propagandist methods on its television news station Russia Today, which used to be independent, now said to be influenced by the Kremlin instead. One journalist quit the station over its treatment of the news story.

Pro-Russian separatists claim the Ukrainian forces took down the aircraft.

Inspectors are at the crash site whilst over help to give the deceased as dignified a death as possible are helping retrieve the bodies.

In recent months Malaysia and its airlines have been dogged with trauma after previous flight MH370 crashed off the coast of Australia. The flight remains an unsolved mystery. Its black box flight recorder has not been located and is feared to have lost all its data.

Vladimir Putin’s real life game of Risk is a major one indeed. Putin needs to understand that he does not have to accept the world’s decisions on everything, however the communist state must be able to communicate with the rest of the world despite certain country principals involving democracy and such others. If Putin can show he is a world leader that can effectively stand tall with other nations than impose on them, then he will be respected and considered when making suggestive influence on decisions of the world. Currently, Putin has no trust, respect and effectively with the world, which it spent over forty plus and even centuries to rebuild a communicative platform. Whatever the case, Putin needs to think and act accordingly that will change course in a fair and concise manner that allows everyone to live their lives their way, including Russians. Running around with weaponry only makes a country look weaker by the day, especially if it can stop the fighting at the click of its fingers.

With a rapid increase in the contraction of the disease, it has never been more crucial to get yourself checked.

Getting checked is easy. Why don’t they get checked?

Some assume many are lazy and this may be true to an extent but not fully as numbers are high in those undiagnosed, meaning those who haven’t gotten checked are carriers and unaware they may be spreading to others.

Some who won’t get tested out of pride or think to themselves they wont have caught it, you may not have, but if you have had unprotected sex a number of times, and in a short space of time, go and get checked, it shan’t take long and will help you in the long run and support society and the world.

If you have unprotected sex, you could be at higher risk along with numerous unknowing they may have it, should seek help or advice. Go to your local GUM clinic or even a GP (Doctor) and talk with them on your concerns. As anyone knows, the quicker something is diagnosed (or ruled out) the quicker its dealt with, the faster help and support will be available to you to make life easier. You can still live a full and healthy life.

Myths that “all gay men” are the “scourge” that host this STI is exactly that, a myth.

Health authorities, governments and nurses express that men sleeping with men and African American/Black ethnic groups are most at risk and need to get tested if having a fuller sex life.

These are not the only groups who are assumed to be dirty and bad for having sex, but do have it responsibly. Those who assume this are the one’s (as I have been informed by sources from gay communities as well as Black communities) who blindly donate the aids epidemic and blame the obvious two groups because aids began in the media with black men from Africa and homosexual men as the first few publicly announced to bear the bug.

Many forget that in Africa, young children are born with it after sexual abuse, manly rape, to their mothers by callous men who know they are infected and couldn’t care less of spreading such infection.

If you are pregnant and have unprotected sex with one or numbers of men you don’t know off, or have before falling pregnant, get checked as you or your child could be at risk.

Some partners also cheat on their spouses/significant others so those who cheat could contract and then bring it back home to you by sleeping with you to cover their tracks from affairs and “make up” with a seemingly loving romantic liaison.

If the world works together, and the public complies with screenings and testing, then eventually, the world may be able to lower the numbers and risk of spreading the epidemic with co-operation.

Over 100,000 people in the UK are living with HIV, but a quarter do not know they have it – that is 25,000 people who are not benefiting from treatment and are increasing the risk of passing the virus on.

The Health Protection Agency (HPA) state one in 20 men who have sex with men in the UK now have HIV, and the figure soars to nearly one in 12 in London.

This of course, is just one statistic of an increasing rise of all groups.

The key note to understand, first and foremost is that anyone from any group can contract, even Women. There is no shame in getting checked, and with the rates of “it only takes one” to pass it on, testing is crucial.

We live in a world where most of us are uneducated about the infection and its solution which is why it is important to take an interest and think rather than assume and blame as there is no judgment on lack of education on such subject. You can easily say it doesn’t affect you, but anyone could transfer it without you knowing, as well as loved ones you care for.

The most important to take from this is to use a condom. This increases safety and you can have sex responsibly.

Remember, having a sex life is all well and good but do so responsibly.

If you liked it, then you should’ve put a bag on it…
