# 721: War in Ukraine – 100 Day Study
The Kiev government occupies about 20% of the territory occupied by the invaders, killing at least 14 million people a day, destroying cities and forcing their homes to leave at least 14 million people, if not the country. For Russia, which was expected to carry out a rapid low-resistance operation, the balance sheet includes the loss of generals and the burden of unprecedented sanctions. In common, both sides continue to claim victory on the battlefield. “The war is very costly, with long-term consequences for the whole world,” said Tanguy Baghdadi, a professor of international relations. It refers to the widespread rise in prices and the risk of shortages of essential items such as grain, fuel and fertilizers. In a conversation with Renata Lo Prete, Tanguy examines the attitude of North America: “We see the formation of two completely separate blocks.” It would be the result of a US-led dispute with Russia and China. For him It is not surprising that Vladimir Putin has announced that he has “won the war” as soon as he takes full control of eastern Ukraine and the country’s southern corridor. Ukraine, on the other hand, needs more: not only to end the conflict, but also to establish diplomatic agreements that prevent “another war in two years’ time.”

# 724: Supreme Polarized
As tensions between the country’s top executive and the Supreme Court escalated, the Supreme Electoral Court appeared.

In the 2018 elections. It lasted little, almost nothing: in less than a week, the decision reached the Second Jury of the Supreme Court, and upheld the ruling of the TSE. Eloísa Machado for FGV Professor of Constitutional Law It is a measure that shows “harmony” between the two courts to “preserve the integrity of the election,” even if it identifies a “combined game” between Nunes Marques and André Mendonça, the president’s second STF appointment.. “This is what the polarized environment in politics creates in the Supreme Court,” said Débora Santos, a justice analyst at XP Investimentos. In an interview with Julia Duailibi, the former STF Communications Secretary reinforces this “The environment is not normal,” but it unites the court’s sense of self-preservation rather than separating the minister.

Such stories may be even rarer once the STJ, from 6 to 3, has defined the need for a detailed list of procedures by the National Supplemental Health Agency. That is, health plans are exempt from offering any treatment or therapy that is not on the ANS list. But, as Dr. Lígia Bahia points out, there is a “comma” in the text that allows for exceptions. In an interview with Julia Duailibi, the professor and coordinator of the UERJ’s collective health research team explained why the judges in cases 1 and 2 must recognize the “abuses and absurd interpretations” of health plans. However He is concerned about the “big blackmail” that companies use to justify price increases and influence ANS decisions – his job is to defend consumer rights – but he is “clearly” on the other side. He also talks about the pressure this measure could put on the Common Health System: “SUS was for the poor and health plans were less for the poor.”
