This is how the clandestine houses of the Dgcim operate in Caracas

“A kind of institutionalised pillage nourishes the real estate assets of the Chavista state security forces, in particular the Military Counterintelligence, which has taken possession of properties generally located in housing estates in the east of the Venezuelan capital. In some of these ‘safe houses’, dedicated to the kidnapping, extortion and torture of political opponents, the secret services torment their victims, hostages or missing persons, while they are not under the control of the judicial circuits. This is the first instalment in a series that x-rays these places and the horror that inhabits them.”

European green finance is paying for deforestation in Indonesia: the case of Michelin

“Designed to support sustainable development projects, green finance is not always as benign as its protagonists would have us believe. A certified “green” project may have helped destroy rainforest, thus deceiving its eco-conscious investors. In a detailed investigation, Voxeurop lifts the veil on a vast greenwashing operation carried out in Indonesia by Michelin, the world’s biggest tyre manufacturer.”

Not just Bucha. Here’s what happened outside Chernihiv

“The Russian military achieved notoriety for murders and rapes in Bucha, Kyiv region. But they behaved no better near Chernihiv. The Chernihiv region of Ukraine was attacked by the Russian troops on the first day of the war. Fighting for Chernihiv lasted more than a month, and the Russian soldiers’ route to the capital passed through small settlements. IStories spoke with the residents of villages in the Chernihiv region. They witnessed the killing of civilians, survived torture in a basement, and lost their homes.”
