United Kingdom: Moscow reservists “ill equipped and unprepared”

Two months after President Vladimir Putin’s “partial mobilization” in Russia to deal with the war in Ukraine, British military intelligence is trying to take stock of the results and notes that there has been confusion about who is fit for service (those with “very serious chronic illnesses were also recalled”), that “personal training and equipment are inadequate” and reservists are required to have “highly wearing combat missions”. Not only that: the young men sent to war “most likely suffered particularly heavy losses” when they had to dig trenches despite being under artillery fire around the city of Svatove in the Lugansk oblast; and they were killed “in large numbers” by the Ukrainian defense around the city of Bakhmut. And now the Kremlin probably “will probably be concerned” by the fact that the families of reservists will want to protest the conditions in which their children serve

Merkel: ‘I no longer had the power to influence Putin’

Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she tried to convince her European allies of the need to find a format for talking to Russian President Vladimir Putin about Ukraine, but realized she no longer had influence. He revealed this in an interview published by the German weekly “Der Spiegel” explaining that he wanted the initiative because he perceived that the Minsk Protocol – the agreement signed in 2014 by Ukraine, the Russian Federation, Donetsk and Lugansk under the auspices of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe and seeking a political solution to the conflict – had become obsolete. “The Minsk agreement had been left empty. In the summer of 2021, after Presidents Biden and Putin met, I tried to create a new format for independent European debate with Putin and with Emmanuel Macron in the EU Council” . “Some people objected and I no longer had the strength to impose myself because everyone knew that I would leave in the autumn”. The former chancellor also revealed that in talks with the other leaders of the European Union, she pressed “on the others, why don’t you intervene? But say something!”. “One replied: ‘it’s too big for me’; another just shrugged: ‘this is what grown-ups have to do'”. But she assured that if she ran again in September in the German elections she “would have insisted more”.

Over 15,000 people missing since the start of the war

More than 15,000 people have disappeared in Ukraine since the beginning of the Russian invasion on February 24, an official of the International Commission on Missing Persons (ICMP) has announced, as reported by the Reuters news agency on its website. It is not clear at the moment how many people have been forcibly displaced, are detained in Russia, are alive and separated from their families or have died, said ICMP program director for Europe, Matthew Holliday. In any case, the search for those missing will take years, even after the fighting has ended, Holliday added, stressing that the figure of 15,000 is conservative considering that in the port city of Mariupol alone, authorities estimate up to 25,000 people dead or missing. “The numbers are huge and the challenges facing Ukraine are vast,” Holliday said.

Zelenska: “Ready to face winter, we’ve had worse challenges”

Ukrainian first lady Olena Zelenska told the BBC that Ukraine will resist next winter despite the cold and blackouts caused by Russian missiles, and will continue to fight what she describes as a war of worldviews, because “without victory there can be no peace”. “We are ready to put up with this,” Olena says. “We’ve had so many terrible challenges, seen so many casualties, so much destruction, that blackouts aren’t the worst thing that can happen to us.” Then, the first lady cites a recent poll in which 90% of Ukrainians said they were ready to live with electricity shortages for two or three years if they saw the prospect of joining the European Union. This, she adds, in the face of the fact that “it’s easy to run a marathon when you know how many miles there are.” However, Ukrainians do not know the distance they have to travel. “It can be very difficult at times, but there are some new emotions that help us endure.” As for family life and the fact that she sees little of her husband, President Zelensky, the first lady adds that meeting “is very rare today. Very rare. I live separately with my children and my husband lives at work,” she explains. . “Above all, we miss the simple things: sitting, not looking at the time, as long as we want”
