On May 2, 1945, the Soviet Army took the Reichstag in Berlin. A few days later, on May 8, Nazi Germany signed its unconditional surrender. On the following day, May 9, millions of people celebrated the day that went down in history as Victory Day.

On August 6 and 9, 1945, the US unleashed atomic horror on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, cities in an already defeated Japan. On September 2, Japanese militarism capitulated.


For nine years the Syrian Arab Republic has been facing brutal foreign aggression.

As in Libya, shortly before, the main Western powers and their regional allies, hiding behind terrorist groups (who they arm, train and fund), imposed an aggression and destruction on the country, aiming to overthrow its government and change Syria's political-constitutional regime, control its natural resources and remove one of the main obstacles to total control of the region.

The Constitution of the Portuguese Republic was approved and promulgated on April 2, 1976. The Constitution enshrines broad democratic rights – political, social, economic and cultural – won by the Portuguese people with the April Revolution, which began on April 25, 1974, and, in particular, stipulates that Portugal's external relations be guided by the respect for sovereignty and national independence, a policy of peace, friendship and cooperation with all the peoples of the world.

The complex and very unpredictable moment that we are experiencing, which restricts our usual socialisation, demands a broader vision and a closer look on what is happening, namely on the suffering of the peoples of the most vulnerable countries and the behaviour of the great powers at European and world level, when more solidarity and cooperation is required and a redoubled effort to put an end to the unacceptable recourse of economic and military aggression in international relations.


In the middle of the COVID-19 pandemic in the world, the US Administration, headed by Donald Trump, has just dealt yet another real blow against Venezuela and the Venezuelan people, by accusing its legitimate President, Nicolas Maduro, and other Venezuelan officials, of an alleged involvement in “drug trafficking”, without any proof to support this allegation, and by establishing a $ 15 million reward for information leading to his arrest and/or conviction.
