the death of Stalin celebrated in Russia; Banksy pays homage to Oscar Wilde

Day of mourning in Turkey. Eleven coffins are carried in a funeral ceremony. They are those of soldiers who disappeared Thursday March 4 in a helicopter crash. A general was among them. The funeral ceremony took place in Ankara, in the presence of the President of the Republic, Recep Tayyip Erdoğan. The aircraft crashed in the southeast of the country. The fog is said to be at the root of the drama. In this region, the army regularly carries out operations against the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK).

In Russia, it is the celebration of the sixty-eighth anniversary of the death of Joseph Stalin. There were just a handful of them in Red Square in Moscow, displaying flags and portraits. Nostalgic for the Soviet era, but especially for Joseph Stalin. Although his reign was marked by the repression and deportation of tens of millions of people, he is considered a hero by his followers.

In the United Kingdom, Banksy is talking about him again. In a video posted on social media, the street artist, face hidden to keep his identity a secret, works on his latest creation: a graffiti that adorns the wall of the old prison in Reading, near London. The work represents a prisoner who escapes thanks to a rope of sheets tied to a typewriter. Banksy would have wanted to pay tribute to the writer Oscar Wilde, detained here and who advocated in the 19th century for a reform of the prison system.
