War in the neighborhood: IPN updates

Russia transferring responsibility

High Representative of the EU for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy Josep Borrell said Russia is directly responsible for any shortages in international trade in grains, and instead of ending its aggression, is actively seeking to transfer responsibility on international sanctions.  He noted that the EU will continue to show its full solidarity with countries around the world in addressing the war consequences, while President Putin needs to end his war against Ukraine. Ukraine’s territorial integrity must be restored. This is in the interest of the entire international community.

Even a splinter can activate Apocalypse Button

Nuclear power state-owned company Energoatom claimed Russian missiles had flown overhead of the southern power plant near the city of Yuzhnoukraisnsk, about 220 miles south of Kyiv, early in the morning of Sunday, June 5.

In a translated statement shared across numerous social media accounts, a company spokesperson said the missile was headed towards Kyiv and referred to Russian soldiers as “racists”. It read: “Russia committed another act of nuclear terrorism at 5:30 a.m. Russian cruise missile, similar to the 'Caliber' missile, flew critically low over the South Ukrainian nuclear power plant.”

“At present, Russia continues to threaten the nuclear safety of Ukrainian nuclear power plants and threatens the world with a new nuclear catastrophe.

“The racists still do not understand that even the smallest fragment of a missile that can hit a working power unit can cause a nuclear catastrophe and radiation leak.”

According to the Ukrainian Air Force Command, five cruise missiles fired from the Caspian Sea were launched from Tu-95 bombers, one of which was intercepted, Ukraine’s air force said, in an attack that represented a change of approach on the part of Russian forces.

Mikhail Podolyak, Advisor to the Head of the President’s Office said:
“While someone is asking ‘not to humiliate Russia’, the Kremlin is resorting to new insidious attacks. Today’s rocket attacks on Kyiv have only one goal – to kill as many Ukrainians as possible,” he wrote. According to Podolyak, each such act of terrorism should receive a tough response from Europe – new sanctions against the Russian Federation and more arms supplies to Ukraine.

Putin promises to strike if Ukraine ...defends itself

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Sunday warned that Moscow would order strikes on new targets, if the US supplies long-range rocket systems to Ukraine.

“If it now comes to rockets and they are supplied, we will draw conclusions from that and employ our weapons that we have in sufficient quantities to strike those facilities that we are not attacking so far,” Putin said in an interview with Rossiya-1 TV Channel.

He said that the supply of US multiple launch rocket systems to Ukraine has essentially changed nothing, as Ukraine already had similar armaments, according to TASS news agency.

Earlier, Vladimir Putin said the Russian defense systems thrash the armament possessed by Ukraine.

Lavrov’s flight to Serbia banned

Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov could not make the trip to Serbia as North Macedonia, Bulgaria and Montenegro closed their airspace. Russian Foreign Affairs Ministry confirmed that NATO and European Union nations bordering Serbia banned Lavrov’s flight to Belgrade.

Serbian President Aleksandar Vučić said earlier the planned visit of Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov to Belgrade announced for June 7 by the media is becoming complicated, particularly when it comes to how he will arrive.

Ukrainian authorities plan financing for population

The Cabinet of Ukraine will allocate US$6 billion of the international assistance for reducing tariffs for the population and for preparing for the next heating season. Of this sum, 150 million UAH is to be used on the natural gas market, while 76 billion UAH will go to clear the gas debts. An additional 38.2 billion UAH is to be used to subsidize the difference in heat rates through local budgets.

Blessed by Patriarch, they set fire to churches

“Occupiers have damaged at least 43 religious buildings in the Donetsk region since the beginning of the war. The vast majority of them belonged to the Moscow Patriarchate,” Pavel Kirilenko, head of the Donetsk regional military administration, wrote in his telegram channel.

Russian invaders again shelled the Sviatohirsk Lavra monastery in the north of the Donetsk Region, where hundreds of civilians sought refuge, in addition to monks and nuns.

Parts of AK-47 can be used to assemble only K-47

Russian opposition journalist Arkady Babchenko told GORDON that if Navalny survives, most probably he will be the next tsar of Russia, but the return of Crimea will not be raised. “But I do not rule out the possibility that when dust settles on the Red Square, Ramzan Kadyrov will be the next tsar of Russia and real entertainment for all will come then. It will yet be a piece of cake compared to what will happen later,” warned the journalist.
