Reports of the Russian Ministry of Defense, reports from the field, statements by politicians
A special military operation, which is being carried out by the Russian Armed Forces, continues on the territory of Ukraine. The day before, the head of the Russian delegation, aide to the President of Russia Vladimir Medinsky, said that he had several lengthy conversations with the head of the Ukrainian delegation. However, in general, according to Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, the negotiations are moving slowly. In his opinion, the Ukrainian side no longer needs negotiations.
In turn, the White House made a statement that the United States would take any measures to “bring Russia to account,” except for a direct military clash. Washington also promised to increase military and economic assistance to Kyiv.
The Russian military is ready to once again declare a regime of silence and open humanitarian corridors for the exit of civilians from the territory of the Azovstal plant, if there are any. The corresponding proposal was submitted to the Ukrainian side.
