NATO Ally Faces Backlash After Ukraine War Remark​

Ukrainian lawmaker reacted angrily to comments from the prime minister of NATO member Slovakia, Robert Fico, claiming that amid the Russian full-scale invasion, life in Kyiv is "absolutely normal." Fico has made statements in the past showing a pro-Russian stance, and since he took power in October, he has resisted Bratislava's support for Kyiv. During his election campaign, he vowed "not to send another bullet to Ukraine." On Tuesday, ahead of a meeting with his Ukrainian counterpart, Denys Shmyhal, Fico appeared to be dismissive of the impact of the war in Kyiv. When asked in a news conference if he should travel to the Ukrainian capital to better understand the war with Russia, Fico said that the conflict was "localized."

Republicans struggle to hold together Ukraine-for-border deal​

Senate Republicans struggled to hold together support for a bipartisan border-for-Ukraine deal on Thursday as Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) privately acknowledged former president Donald Trump’s opposition to the deal has complicated its future. Republicans demanded stringent border policy changes to pass $60 billion in Ukraine aid requested by the White House last year, and a small group of Senate negotiators are closing in on a deal that Trump has publicly slammed and that some Republicans have argued could hurt Trump’s reelection chances by removing a potent campaign issue. A significant number of Republican senators have begun to speak out against the border security deal before its details have been released and even as they continue to raise alarm bells about the migrant crisis at the border.

Putin says Ukraine likely shot down plane with U.S. or French missiles; Kyiv begins EU accession talks​

Ukraine formally started the screening process to begin talks over its future membership of the European Union on Thursday, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy said. In a post on X, the Ukrainian leader said he welcomed the start of “substantial preparations for Ukraine’s EU accession talks” in Brussels, following an agreement reached with EU Commission President Ursula von der Leyen last week at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. “The thorough work of assessing the conformity of Ukrainian legislation with EU norms, the formation of Ukraine’s delegation, and our negotiating position are all ahead of us,” Zelenskyy added. A small bipartisan group of senators is seeking a way to please Republicans aligned with Donald Trump, the front-runner for the party’s presidential candidacy, who has openly pressured allies not to compromise on legislation that would help President Joe Biden in the run-up to November’s election.

Ukraine levels up the fight with drone strikes deep into Russia​

Unable to match Putin’s military might, Ukraine is engaging in ‘smart warfare’ to attack the enemy’s oil and gas supply lines

Last week, a motorist driving in Russia’s Leningrad region came across something unusual. Men had blocked off the road. In front, a large olive-green military vehicle with cigar-shaped missiles on the back was reversing and then parked up on a snowy verge. “Fuck! It’s an S-300,” the driver exclaimed, before adding: “So guys, let’s prepare for the worst.” This surreal roadside encounter took place outside St Petersburg, more than 620 miles (about 1,000km) from the border with Ukraine and Russia’s near two-year all-out war. The Kremlin’s security services were apparently taking no chances. They were deploying the S-300 air defence missile system in order to protect Peter the Great’s imperial capital from small but devastating drones. Over the past three weeks, Ukraine has wreaked havoc with Russia’s energy infrastructure. Soon after the new year, someone attached explosives to train carriages in the Urals city of Nizhny Tagil. A blast took place next to facilities owned by Gazprom Neft, the country’s third biggest oil producer. Next, a kamikaze drone crashed into an oil depot in the Oryol region.

Absurd to believe Russia will invade other countries, Moscow says; Kyiv says it has destroyed Su-34 jet​

Regional officials in both Russia and Ukraine have reported a series of attempted drone attacks against their territories overnight. Russian authorities reported early Tuesday that air defense systems shot down 21 Ukrainian drones over the Bryansk, Kaluga and Tula regions, as well as over the sea area in the Sevastopol area in Russian-occupied Crimea, Russian news agencies said, citing officials. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s air force said air defense systems destroyed 15 out of 35 Russian drones that had been launched at Ukrainian energy and military infrastructure within the Mykolaiv, Sumy, Cherkasy, Kirovohrad, Dnipropetrovsk, Kharkiv, Kherson and Kyiv regions. Two missiles were also launched by Russian forces in the Donetsk region. In other news, China Vice Foreign Minister Sun Weidong met with Ukrainian ambassador to China Pavlo Riabikin on Tuesday, with the officials exchanging views on issues of common concern, including the Ukraine crisis, the Chinese Foreign Ministry said in a statement.

US weapons sales abroad hit record high in 2023, boosted by Ukraine war​


The US government directly negotiated $81bn in sales, a 56% increase from 2022, the state department reported. The rest were direct sales by US defence companies to foreign nations. Ukraine's neighbour Poland, currently on a drive to expand its military, made some of the biggest purchases. Poland bought Apache helicopters for $12bn, and also paid $10bn for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (Himars) and $3.75bn for M1A1 Abrams tanks, the department said in a report for the US government's fiscal year that ended in October. It also spent $4bn on Integrated Air and Missile Defence Battle Command Systems. Prime Minister Donald Tusk has vowed to continue the previous conservative government's military modernisation programme, which aimed to make Poland "the most powerful land force in Europe".

Germany, meanwhile, spent $8.5bn spent on Chinook helicopters. Bulgaria paid $1.5bn for Stryker armoured vehicles and Norway bought $1bn worth of multi-mission helicopters. The Czech Republic bought $5.6bn in F-35 jets and munitions. "Arms transfers and defence trade are important US foreign policy tools with potential long-term implications for regional and global security," the state department said in its annual memo released on Monday. Sales were also boosted by countries turning away from Russia, which has been the second largest seller of weapons after the US for decades, according to the head of the department's arms transfers office.

Europe gears up for a showdown with Orban over money for Ukraine​


Leaders of the 27 member states of the European Union will meet in Brussels on Thursday and try to unlock 50 billion of funding for Ukraine that was blocked by Hungary in December, in a crucial summit at a pivotal moment in the war. Failure to reach an agreement would mark a major blow to Ukraine, at a time when outmanned and outgunned Ukrainian forces are struggling on the battlefield in the face of a renewed Russian assault, and military aid from the United States has dried up amid an ongoing battle in Washington over future funding for Kyiv.

Brussels sources told CNN this will most likely mean individual governments sending money directly to Ukraine, rather than through the EU. They say that this is less desirable as it will be more expensive and make it harder to coordinate how the money is spent with existing EU programs in Ukraine. There are other suggestions that the EU could generate revenue for Ukraine from frozen Russian assets within the block.

Half of US adults say Israel has gone too far in war in Gaza, AP-NORC poll shows​


Half of U.S. adults say Israel’s 15-week-old military campaign in Gaza has “gone too far,” a finding driven mainly by growing disapproval among Republicans and political independents, according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. Broadly, the poll shows support for Israel and the Biden administration’s handling of the situation ebbing slightly further across the board. The poll shows 31% of U.S. adults approve of Biden’s handling of the conflict, including just 46% of Democrats. That’s as an earlier spike in support for Israel following the Hamas attacks Oct. 7 sags.

Russia-Ukraine war: List of key events, day 713​


Fighting

  • Four people were killed and at least one injured after Russia shelled the southern Ukrainian city of Kherson, local officials said.
  • France summoned Alexey Meshkov, the Russian ambassador to France, after two French aid workers were killed in Russian artillery fire near Kherson last Thursday. Three more French citizens were also injured in the attack that Paris described as an act of “barbarism”.
  • Russia’s FSB security service said three Russian citizens had been detained on suspicion of attempting to assassinate a high-ranking Crimean official with a car bomb. The FSB claimed Ukraine’s security service was behind the attempted attack and said the three had been charged with “terrorist” offences. It did not name the official who was allegedly the target.
Politics and diplomacy

  • The Kremlin warned Western countries that any attempt to use frozen Russian assets as collateral to raise funds for Ukraine would be illegal and lead to a Russian legal challenge. The United States and its allies banned transactions with Russia’s central bank and the Ministry of Finance, after President Vladimir Putin began his full-scale invasion of Ukraine two years ago, freezing an estimated $300bn of sovereign Russian assets.
  • The presidential bid of antiwar candidate Boris Nadezhdin is hanging in the balance. Nadezhdin said Russia’s Central Election Commission (CEC) had informed him that 15 percent of the signatures he submitted to access the electoral race were invalid. The CEC could now block his bid to enter the election.
  • Lawmakers from Hungary’s ruling party boycotted an emergency parliament session in which a vote on Sweden’s bid to join NATO was on the agenda. Hungary is the only member of the 31-member security alliance not to have backed Sweden’s bid. The US said it was disappointed at the move.
Weapons

  • Kajsa Ollongren, the Dutch defence minister, said The Netherlands would deliver six more F-16 fighter jets to Ukraine, taking the total number pledged to 24. “Ukraine’s aerial superiority is essential for countering Russian aggression,” Ollongren said.
  • Georgia said it seized a clandestine shipment of explosives bound for the Russian city of Voronezh from the Ukrainian port of Odesa. It said the explosives, hidden in a cargo of car batteries, arrived in Georgia in a Ukrainian-owned minivan and were to be transported to Voronezh, about 180km (110 miles) from the Ukrainian frontier. It did not say what for.

Russia-Ukraine war updates: Borrell on Kyiv trip stresses EU’s support​


Our daily live coverage is coming to an end. Here are the most important developments of the day:

  • Josep Borrell is in Kyiv on a trip to underline the EU’s “unwavering support” to Ukraine as the war nears its third year.
  • Ukraine says a group of its special forces blew up a drilling platform in the Black Sea that Russia was using to enhance the range of its drones. Equipment on the platform was used for drones involved in attacks on Ukraine’s critical infrastructure and to control the northwestern part of the sea.
  • Parts of the eastern Ukrainian town of Avdiivka are in a “critical” situation due to ongoing Russian shelling and incursions by Moscow’s forces, a local official says.
  • The prosecutor leading Sweden’s probe into the Nord Stream gas pipeline blasts in the Baltic Sea in 2022 says it expects to make an announcement on the state of the case on Wednesday, his office has said.
  • The Ukrainian parliament has extended both its martial law and army mobilisation law imposed after the full-scale Russian invasion by a further 90 days or until mid-May.
  • UN nuclear watchdog chief Rafael Grossi has met Ukrainian energy sector officials ahead of his visit to the Russian-held Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant on Wednesday.

Joe Biden blames Donald Trump for sinking US deal to fund Ukraine war effort​

President Joe Biden speaks at the White House

Former president had trashed congressional agreement seen as last chance to send more aid to Kyiv

President Joe Biden has blamed Donald Trump for sinking a bipartisan bill delivering billions of dollars in aid to Ukraine along with stricter immigration policies, after Republicans signalled their opposition to the deal under pressure from the former president. The legislation worth $118bn agreed on Sunday by Democratic and Republican negotiators in the Senate could be the last chance for the Biden administration to secure new military support for Ukraine in its defence against Russia’s invasion — alongside other national security goals including aid to Israel and Taiwan. It also marks a rare compromise on efforts to curb immigration through the border with Mexico, including restrictions on asylum, which has been a rallying cry for Republicans and a political liability for Democrats throughout Biden’s presidency. Failure to pass the bill would mean “fewer tools” for Ukraine to fight Russia’s invasion and that was “just what [Vladimir] Putin wants”, Biden added, referring to Russia’s president. “History is watching. A failure to support Ukraine at this critical moment will never be forgotten.” On Monday, Trump had bashed the agreement on social media, calling it a “great gift” for Democrats and a “death wish” for Republicans: “It takes the HORRIBLE JOB the Democrats have done on Immigration and the Border, absolves them, and puts it all squarely on the shoulders of Republicans. Don’t be STUPID!!!”

Zelensky fires Ukraine’s military chief in major shakeup nearly two years into war​


President Volodymyr Zelensky has announced the dismissal of Ukraine’s top commander, General Valerii Zaluzhnyi in the biggest military shakeup since the start of Russia's full-scale invasion almost two years ago. The president’s move follows tensions between Zelensky and his hugely popular military chief after the failure of Ukraine’s much-vaunted counteroffensive, and with Ukraine facing a renewed Russian onslaught, manpower and ammunition shortages, and US and stalled in Congress. In a Telegram post sent shortly before the formal announcement, Zelensky said he held a meeting with Zaluzhnyi, and “discussed what kind of renewal the Armed Forces of Ukraine need.” Zaluzhnyi’s replacement will be Oleksandr Syrskyi, who since 2019 has served as the Commander of Ukrainian Land Forces. Zaluzhnyi wrote on his Telegram channel on Thursday that “the tasks of 2022 are different from those of 2024.

Who is Colonel General Oleksandr Syrsky, Ukraine’s new army chief?​

Syrsky, who replaces General Valerii Zaluzhny, has been called ‘Snow Leopard’ and ‘Hero of Ukraine’ for his battlefield successes.

Colonel General Oleksandr Syrsky, the man President Volodymyr Zelenskyy has chosen to lead Ukraine’s military, has played a key role in some of the country’s biggest victories in its war with Russia, including overseeing the successful defence of the capital, Kyiv, in the early days of the invasion. Like most senior officers of his generation, Syrsky was born in Soviet Russia, in July 1965, and studied at a Red Army academy in Moscow. In the 1980s he was deployed to Ukraine, then part of the Soviet Union. But when the Soviet Union collapsed, he remained in Ukraine, studying at the National Defence University in Kyiv and joining the ranks of the newly independent Ukrainian army. The choice of Syrsky as commander-in-chief is hardly a surprise because few in the Ukrainian military have the experience and know-how to be able to fill the shoes of his popular predecessor, General Valerii Zaluzhny.

Russia-Ukraine war live: Kyiv captures ‘25 Russian soldiers’ in past week as Moscow builds huge defensive line​


Ukrainian troops have captured up to 25 Russians soldiers in the past week as the Kremlin builds a 19-mile metal defensive line behind occupied territory. General Oleksandr Tarnavskyi said around half of the troops were captured on Sunday, with the majority taken in the Zaporizhzhia region. It comes as Ukrainian open-source intelligence tracker claimed that Russia was building a 19-mile metal defensive line behind the frontline in occupied territory. Blogger DeepState said the defensive line is made up of around 2,100 train carriages and has been slowly built up since July 2023. It has been nicknamed the “tsarist train”.

Things are going badly for Ukraine — really badly​


As the second anniversary of Russia's unprovoked invasion approaches, the situation is beginning to look bleak for Ukraine. Last year's counteroffensive brought hopes that Ukraine could capitalize on its successes in 2022 and drive back Russian forces from occupied territories in southern and eastern Ukraine. But the offensive failed to achieve a breakthrough, and Ukraine is now seeing crucial support from its allies bleed away. Meanwhile, its troops are experiencing shortages of personnel and ammunition. There are problems at the top, too. Its senior command has been engulfed in chaos, with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy replacing Valery Zaluzhny, a senior commander, amid reported disagreements over strategy.

Russia uses Zircon hypersonic missile in Ukraine for first time, researchers say​


A preliminary analysis concluded that Russia hit Kyiv last week with the hypersonic Zircon missile, its first use in the nearly two-year-old war, the head of a Kyiv research institute said on Monday, presenting a new challenge to Ukraine's air defences. Oleksandr Ruvin, director of the Kyiv Scientific-Research Institute for Forensic Examinations, said on his Telegram channel that his institute completed a preliminary analysis of missile fragments from a Russian attack on Feb. 7. The Zircon has a range of 1,000 km (625 miles) and travels at nine times the speed of sound, according to Russia. Military analysts have said its hypersonic speed could mean greatly reduced reaction time for air defences and a capability to attack large, deep and hardened targets.

Russia previously said it completed testing of the Zircon missile in June 2022, and Russian President Vladimir Putin has described the Zircon as part of a new generation of unrivalled arms systems. If its use in Ukraine is confirmed, the weapon could pose an additional challenge for the embattled country's air defences, amid uncertainty over future Western military aid. Russia conducts regular air strikes on Ukraine using an array of different long-range missiles and drones. The Zircon was initially designed as a sea-launched weapon and a ground-launched version was developed later. Ruvin's statement did not say whether the weapon had been fired from land or from sea. The markings recovered from the wreckage indicated the weapon had been assembled recently, he said.
