The Guardian | The Queen’s government managed to hide its personal wealth by lobbying.
The Guardian found documents showing that it had lobbied the government to prevent the disclosure of Queen Elizabeth’s personal wealth in a manner adopted in 1970. Government records in the National Archives showed that Queen Elizabeth’s personal attorney pressured the ministers of the time to pass an arrangement that would prevent the disclosure of personal wealth. The regulation, which came into force in 1970, prevented Queen Elizabeth from sharing her shares and investments with the public through a front-end company until at least 2011. Queen Elizabeth’s real wealth has never been revealed, but it is estimated to be worth hundreds of millions of pounds.

Washington Post | Still good
The Washington Post saw the Tampa Bay Buccaneers win over Super Bowl quarterback Tom Brady. Brady’s photo appeared on the front page of the newspaper, as well as on the sports page.
In a match played in the shadow of the coronavirus pandemic, 43-year-old Tom Brady, considered by many to be the best of all time, was named the most valuable player in the Super Bowl by playing a statistically better match than his young rival Mahomes.
In a match that ended 31-9, Brady made 201 yards and 3 touchdowns. Rob Gronkowski, an old friend of the New England Patriots, caught two of those passes.
Mahomes managed 26 of 49 passes and threw the ball to the opposing team twice. The star defender finished the match without any passes.
Most of them became the first team to reach the Super Bowl in their stadiums.
With this result, Brady advanced to the 7th Super Bowl. The 43-year-old legend has won six previous victories with the New England Patriots. The star American footballer was named the most valuable player in the Super Bowl for the 5th time. “We’ll get back to that point,” Brady said, pointing out he’ll be on the field next season.
Moscow Times | Borrell said the EU should draw conclusions from the controversial visit to Moscow
EU Commissioner Josep Borrell, referring to the sanctions, said Russia rejected a constructive dialogue with the EU and that Brussels should draw conclusions.
Noting that three EU diplomats had been sent from the country on the day of his visit to Moscow, Borrell, the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, said “Russia did not want to take the opportunity for a more constructive dialogue with Brussels.”
Borrell said the bloc “should draw some conclusions” from the visit. “Member states will take the next step, and yes, there may be sanctions between these steps.”
Borrell’s visit, which ended on Saturday, split 27 EU member states. While France and Germany have supported dialogue with Russia, other member states have called for a tougher stance on Moscow over the arrest of opposition leader Navalny and subsequent crackdowns on protesters.
A few hours after arriving in Moscow, the EU diplomat met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, and shortly afterwards some Polish, German and Swedish diplomats were expelled.

Al Jazeera | The United States has suspended aid to Saudi-led forces in Yemen
US President Joe Biden announced last week that they would end support for Saudi Arabia’s operations in Yemen. Bidet’s support for the suspension also includes the end of certain arms sales to Riyadh. Biden’s move was seen as a signal that the United Nations will seek a diplomatic solution to Yemen, which it calls “the world’s biggest humanitarian crisis.” Experts said that although Biden had announced a new step, there was no clear roadmap from the United States on how the process would proceed. In 2015, the United States began providing “logistical and intelligence support” to the Saudi-led coalition in Yemen.
