    In search of cleaner country air a Polish family swapped the busy city streets of Krakow for this - the village of Olpiny, nestled in the Carpathian foothills. The Tkacuks family made the leap back in 2018. But now, with the war in Ukraine and the cutting off of Russian gas supplies, Julia Tkaczuk's quest to bring her three children up in a less polluted environment is proving harder than thought. Local authorities have postponed a ban on the dirtiest stoves for heating, and last month air pollution in the village exceeded the norms by fourfold. "There was just such...

    Ritter: There are no more Ukrainian breakthroughs, just dead Ukrainians, dead poles, dead mercenaries. Judge: Let me stop you, are there Polish troops on the ground in Ukraine fighting with the Ukrainians against the Russians? Ritter: Tens of thousands and thousands have died. The Poles aren't there as Polish troops. They are the United States we call it "sheep dipped." They basically take off their Polish uniform....they get "dipped" into Ukrainian uniforms and then they go forward. But, they fight as Polish units. I interviewed a senior Russian commander, actually a Chechen and he said, "Look...(he's in the Lugansk...
