+ Ukraine war on newsblog + NATO warns Russia of escalation over “dirty bombs”

According to Stoltenberg, he had earlier spoken with US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin and his British counterpart Ben Wallace. The Secretary General stressed that NATO’s support for Ukraine is unwavering.

Russia has again warned Ukraine of ‘dirty bombs’

7:14 PM: Russia reiterated its warning against Ukraine using so-called dirty bombs. The head of Russia’s nuclear, biological and chemical defense forces, Lt. Gen. Igor Kirillov, said Monday that Russian forces in Ukraine were prepared to respond to the detonation of an explosive device laced with radioactive material.

Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu had already said in talks with defense ministers from several NATO countries over the weekend that Ukraine could resort to the move, which the Kyiv government rejected.

In a joint statement, the foreign ministers of France, Great Britain and the United States described Russia’s allegations as false claims. Russia wants to use the Ukraine war as an excuse to escalate. “When Russia calls and says that Ukraine is allegedly preparing something, it means only one thing: Russia has already prepared everything,” Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said.

Ukraine has accused Russia of delaying the departure of 165 cargo ships

6:28 pm: Kiev accused Russia of deliberately delaying the passage of some 165 cargo ships from Turkey to load grain at Ukrainian ports. Russian inspectors have “significantly increased inspections of ships,” Ukraine’s foreign ministry said Monday. Because of this, “more than 165 ships are stuck in a row near the Bosphorus strait,” it said. The number of waiting ships is increasing ‘every day’.

Russia: Armed forces prepare for use under radiation

6.15 PM: Russia says it has prepared its armed forces for use in nuclear radiation scenarios. Lieutenant General Igor Kirillov, head of Russia’s nuclear, biological and chemical defense forces, said this at a press conference. The Russian leadership has previously said it is concerned that Ukraine is planning to detonate a “dirty bomb”. Ukraine rejects it. Previous Russian claims that Ukraine is using biological weapons, for example, have raised concerns in the West that Moscow could be operating under a false identity and then blame Kiev.

The city appears impregnable to Putin’s troops

5:13 PM: World War I-like scenes have been playing out for weeks in Bakhmu, eastern Ukraine: fortress sites and uprooted trees mark recent photos of the region. The Russians are trying to achieve the desired success with the “scorched earth” method – but so far in vain. In this video you can see why Bekhmut is so important to both warring sides, what the threat is in the event of a Russian victory and who has recently captured the territory.

“There’s huge growth potential behind it.”
