Ukraine’s military does not want to negotiate


Russia has allegedly abducted Ukrainian children. Russia’s war of aggression is also the main topic of the G20 summit in Bali. A brief account of what happened that night.

According to the commander-in-chief of Ukraine’s military, Valery Zalushny, there will be no compromises in liberating the country from Russian occupation. Salushanji made the announcement after a phone conversation with US Chief of Staff Mark Milley. “Our goal is to liberate the entire country of Ukraine from Russian occupation,” Zalushnyi wrote on Telegram on Monday. The otherwise reserved general held out against sporadic suggestions from Western supporters that Ukraine should not rule out a negotiated solution.

At the summit of the Group of Twenty Large Industrialized and Emerging Countries (G20) in Indonesia on Tuesday, Ukraine is mobilizing international support for a difficult humanitarian issue: the abduction of Ukrainian children in Russia, which is prohibited under international law. . At least 11,000 children whose names are known have been affected, President Volodymyr Zelenskyj said in his evening video address. “But these are the ones we know about. Actually, many more have been kidnapped.” Tuesday marks the 265th day of Ukraine’s defense against Russian aggression.

A clear political statement from the Ukrainian commander-in-chief

“Ukraine’s military will not accept any negotiations, agreements or compromises,” wrote Supreme Commander Zalushny. He is credited with organizing the Ukrainian army’s successful resistance against the Russian invasion. His statements were the target of a discussion that is being conducted in the United States, but also in other countries. President Joe Biden’s administration has made it clear that it will support Ukraine as long and as forcefully as necessary. Other voices suggest not scrapping the talks.

Mili, Salusanzi’s interlocutor, said last week that if the front lines stabilize over the winter, there may be a chance for talks to end the conflict. In the face of military defeat, Russia is reasserting its perceived willingness to negotiate. However, despite the loss of territory, Russian troops still occupy about a fifth of the neighboring country. “There is only one condition for negotiations: Russia must give up all occupied territories,” Zalushny wrote.

The UN laid the groundwork for Russian reparations

The UN General Assembly passed a resolution on Monday intended to lay the groundwork for future reparations from Russia to Ukraine. In New York, 94 countries voted in favor of the resolution, providing the required two-thirds majority. 73 countries abstained, with 14 voting against – including China, Iran and Cuba in addition to Russia. In the text, Ukraine is asked to record war damage data in a kind of register. “Reparations to Russia for its crimes are now part of international legal reality,” Zelensky said.

Ukraine searches for kidnapped children

The head of the office of the President of Kiev, Andriy Yarmak, discussed children abducted in Russia in an online conference with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and ambassadors of the G20. “Our goal is to stop the violent abduction or deportation of children from Ukraine to the Russian Federation,” said Yarmak. Everything must be done to bring these children back and reunite them with their families. The Russian military and Russian authorities confirm that children from Ukraine are being brought to Russia. They will be evacuated from war zones to safety or come to Russia for treatment or recovery.

PENTAGON: Russian troops have entrenched themselves on the banks of the Dnipro

After the recapture of the city of Cherson by Ukraine, the US Department of Defense expects Russian troops to entrench themselves on the opposite east bank of the Dnipro River. A senior Pentagon official insisted Monday that thousands of Russian troops are on the east side of the river. “Our current assessment is that they want to keep this area under their control.” Currently there is no evidence that Ukrainian units have crossed the river. On the east bank, the Russians occupied most of the Kherson region.
