WAR FRONT - Volodymyr Zelensky, in his usual evening message to the nation, announces the reconquest of thirty localities in the north-east of the country. And he urges the people to resist and fight. The counter-offensive on Kharkiv forces the Russians to send reinforcements. In particular, according to Russian agencies, armored vehicles and guns. Vitali Gantchev, an official in the occupied military administration, reports 'fierce fighting' around Balaklia. And the evacuation of civilians from three other cities: Izyum, Kupyansk and Veliky Burluk. Donetsk Mayor Aleksey Kulemzin, on the other hand, denounces a Ukrainian attack in the city center, at a trolleybus stop, which would have caused 2 deaths and 3 injuries. Dramatic are the words of the archbishop of Kiev Kieva Shevchuck: “More than 2.5 million Ukrainians have been deported from Ukraine, in particular from the occupied territories of the east and south, and have been taken to the Far East, to Siberia. Among them 38,000 children, many of whom have been deprived of parental care, having been deported without their parents. We should pray in particular for those who have passed through concentration and filtration camps and, consequently, have been forced to leave their towns and villages under machine gun fire ”. And again: “Experts point out that 57% of Ukrainians are traumatized, they have suffered some kind of war-related trauma. Many suffer from so-called post-traumatic stress disorder. This can only influence the mood of our society, its sensitivity, all those processes that then affect the construction of interpersonal relationships '.

BLACKOUT AND ZAPORIZHZHIA - Blackout in Enerhodar, the city that hosts the Ukrainian nuclear power plant of Zaporizhzhia.

Grossi makes a new appeal to 'immediately stop the bombing in the area' and to create a safety zone 'to avoid a nuclear accident'. Meanwhile, Petro Kotin, head of the Kiev nuclear energy agency, denounces a 'regime of harassment' of the Russians in the plant, with 'torture' and 'beatings of the staff'. Two operators were even 'beaten to death', two hundred staff members arrested and a dozen would be missing. And a new UN mission, this time in prisons, has been stopped.

WORDS OF MATTARELLA - The President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella, on a visit to Skopje, the capital of North Macedonia, talks about the conflict and foresees a long time for resolution: 'The resistance to the imperialist design manifested by the Russian Federation will require a long-term commitment and is already by imposing significant sacrifices on our populations, starting with the rise in the prices of energy and food. But these costs are immensely lower than those we would have to suffer if this logic of aggression were not immediately stopped, which re-proposes the scenarios of devastating wars of past centuries ”.

STOP YOU WANT FACILITIES - If the Kremlin had announced that the possible stop on facilitated visas decided by the EU would not be reciprocal, the European Council did not stop its intentions and started the suspension of the agreements: this will entail an increase in the tax for the Russians. for the visa application from 35 to 80 euros, longer times, restrictive rules and the need to present additional documents. The new rules will come into effect on 12 September. The Czech interior minister, Vit Rakusan, comments on the decision as follows: 'A visa facilitation agreement allows privileged access to the EU for citizens of trusted partners with whom we share common values. With its war of unprovoked and unwarranted aggression, including its indiscriminate attacks on civilians, Russia has broken that trust and trampled the core values ​​of our international community. Today’s decision is a direct consequence of Russia’s actions and further proof of our unwavering commitment to Ukraine and her people. '
