BATTLE AT THE NUCLEAR POWER STATION - The UN commitment, the imminent IAEA inspection, or the calls for demilitarization of the area did not help: fighting continues near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. First with the Russian artillery in Orihiv, where a 17-year-old died. Oleksandr Starukh, head of the military administration, wrote on Telegram: “The occupier used artillery and fired for several hours in a row. A 17-year-old boy was killed. He was seriously injured and died while being taken to the hospital. A 66-year-old woman from the village of Preobrazhenka was seriously injured during an enemy attack ”. Subsequently, according to the municipal authorities of Enerhodar, heavy Ukrainian bombings damaged the electricity grid: twice the plant was disconnected from the grid and the security system was activated. Joe Biden spoke with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. At the end of the interview, White House spokeswoman Karine Jean-Pierre reported that Biden is asking for the return of the power plant in Kiev.

WAR FRONT - The war does not stop. According to the latest report by the Kiev General Staff, “the armed forces of Ukraine forced Russian troops to retreat in five directions: Kharkiv, Kramatorsk, Bakhmut, Avdiivka and southern Buh. Ukrainian defenders inflicted casualties on the enemy in several areas. The situation towards Volyn and Polissya does not appear to have changed significantly ”since“ there is still a threat of enemy missiles and air strikes from the territory of the Republic of Belarus. In the direction of Siversky, on the other hand, the Russian Federation continues to maintain separate units of its troops in the border areas of the Bryansk and Kursk regions and to limit the actions of the defense forces of Ukraine '. Vladimir Putin allegedly ordered a further deployment of forces that could bring in 137,000 more troops by January. Petro Andryushchenko, adviser to the mayor of Mariupol, in the meantime denounces new fires in Mariupol to the UNIAN agency: “Several houses and a school are burning in Mariupol, but the Russian occupiers are doing nothing about it. The flames have spread to residential buildings and school number 69. The fire is also spreading to the Shchydny railway station. There are no firefighters and the Russian authorities do not respond ”. And the former mayor of Ekaterinburg Yevgeny Roizman, accused of having discredited the Russian army, returns free: he will have to follow a series of restrictions and risk five years in prison. Instead, the conviction of the American professor Mark Fogel has been confirmed: for the Moscow regional court he will have to serve 14 years for drug trafficking, even though he had been arrested for possession of about 20 grams of medical marijuana. Inevitable to read behind the attempt to annoy the United States.

KIEV'S WRATH ON THE POPE - The wrath of Kiev strikes Pope Francis. The pontiff, at the end of the general audience, referring to Darya Dugina, the daughter of Putin's ideologist who died in an attack in Moscow, said: 'I think of the girl who flew into the air for a bomb that was under a seat a car in Moscow. The innocent pay for the war. Let's think about this reality and let's tell ourselves that war is madness. ' But his words sparked the anger of the Ukrainian government, so much so that they decided to convene the apostolic nuncio, Monsignor Visvaldas Kulbokas. Foreign Minister Dmitro Kuleba said: 'We have carefully studied the complete quotation from Pope Francis and have decided to summon the Apostolic Nuncio to express Ukraine’s disappointment.'

CHINA STRENGTHENS TRADE WITH RUSSIA - The spokesman for the Beijing Ministry of Commerce, Shu Jueting, assured the strengthening of bilateral trade with Moscow, which will reach a new record of 170 billion dollars at the end of 2022: 'We will continue to work to promote normal economic and commercial exchanges' despite Western sanctions on Russia. And Giancarlo Giorgetti, Minister of Economic Development, begins to have doubts about the choices made to date, as he stated at the Rimini Meeting: 'With the sanctions we have declared economic war on Russia and the EU has not evaluated some counterproductive consequences that would have occurred unleashed '. Meanwhile, the reduction in flows and the sudden closure of Gazprom continues to have negative effects: on the Amsterdam market, gas reached a record figure of 321.4 euros per megawatt hour.
