WAR FRONT - Yesterday evening the air alarm sounded throughout Ukraine, with explosions in various regions and Russian missiles from the Black Sea. All at the end of yet another day marked by the reconquest of Kiev. The pro-Russian mayor of Izyum fled, leaving the city no longer occupied, while elsewhere counterintelligence destroyed 70 Russian tanks using drones. Overall, the number of liberated settlements in the Kharkiv region rises to 40, as reported by regional governor Oleg Sinegubov. The Ukrainian army has reached Hoptivka, a border crossing with Russia. And Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov spares no criticism of the Kremlin defense ministry for withdrawing troops from Izyum, Kupiansk and Balakliya. He does so in a video on Telegram where he also announces reinforcements of 10,000 men: “If Russia had wanted, the leaders could not have ordered a single step back. So, they have to explain why they did what they did. For what happened, I see that their people were unprepared ”.

BLACKOUT - According to reports from the Kiev General Staff, the soldiers of the Kremlin also withdrew from Svatov, in Lugansk, also losing Kreminna. But they attacked fundamental structures. Ukrainian presidential adviser Mykhailo Podolyak writes on Twitter: 'The Russian attacks on critical civil infrastructures (in particular the largest thermoelectric power plant in Kharkiv) are a manifestation of the terrorism of the Russian Federation and the desire to leave civilians without electricity and heating. A cowardly response to the escape of his own army from the battlefield ”. The raids in Moscow have caused a total blackout in some areas to the east of the country, as Zelensky himself denounced. But in the Sumy and Poltava regions, the energy supply was quickly restored.

NO TO NEGOTIATIONS - The Ukrainian leader, during an interview with CNN, says he is not ready to negotiate with the Russians because 'at the moment, no, I don't see any desire on their part. I do not speak to those who issue ultimatums, it is my principle. Our goal is to free all of our territory. We cannot allow Russia to continue the same occupation that it started in 2014. The strategy of the Russians is to eat us piece by piece. I would call it Russian cannibalism, but I don't want to lend myself to this game. I can't tell you the details of our plan, but we will progress steadily and gradually ”.

TURN OFF THE NUCLEAR STATION - The Ukrainian nuclear power plant in Zaporizhzhya was completely shut down for safety reasons. And disconnected from the mains. Even the last reactor. This was announced by the Ukrainian nuclear agency Enerhoatom: 'It was decided to put reactor number six in the safest state: the cold state'. The continuous attacks in the area, for which Moscow and Kiev are blaming each other, have most likely led to this decision. Rafael Grossi, director general of the IAEA has meanwhile begun consultations to create a protective buffer for the area, as communicated by a tweet from the same agency: 'The director general of the IAEA welcomes the news of the restoration of the power supply to the plant. , but remains seriously concerned about the situation at the Zaporizhzhia plant as bombing continues. It is urgently necessary to create a nuclear and physical safety zone around the plant, consultations have begun ”. And in a telephone conversation, Emmanuel Macron asked Vladimir Putin to withdraw Russian heavy and light weapons from the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. The Russian leader, during the phone call, instead reported that Kiev uses 'Western weapons against civilian infrastructures in the Donbass'. As for what happens on the ground and on the reversal of the war, in which the Ukrainians continue to catch up, US President Joe Biden continues to want to be cautious: 'Things are going on, it's too early to talk.'
