Withdrawal of Russian troops from Kharkiv – Putin warns Finland against joining NATO

During a phone call, Russian President Vladimir Putin warned his Finnish President Ninestro against joining NATO. Turkey has imposed a condition to join the military alliance. Kiev reports that Russian troops have been withdrawn from Kharkiv. A look at the 80th day of the war.

Russian troops were pushed back in Kharkiv

According to the Ukrainian military, it succeeded in expelling Russian troops from the northern city of Kharkiv – a priority for Moscow. In the Kharkiv region, a spokesman for the Ukrainian civil service said that “enemy efforts are primarily focused on ensuring the withdrawal of its units from the city of Kharkiv.” Meanwhile, Kharkiv regional governor Oleg Sinekubov said in a video in a telegram that Ukrainian forces were launching a counter-offensive against the northeastern city of Isiam.

According to a US-based Institute for the Study of War, a think tank, the Ukrainians “seem to have won the Kharkiv war.” “Ukrainian forces prevented the encirclement of Russian troops, let alone the capture of Kharkiv, and then drove them out of the suburbs.” They did the same in the war for the Ukrainian capital, Kiev.

According to their own reports, Ukrainian troops slowed Russian progress in the east of the country through fierce opposition. Sergei Kayte, governor of the Luhansk region, said the soldiers had thwarted enemy attempts to cross a river and encircle the city of Severdonetsk. “Fierce fighting is currently taking place on the border of the Donetsk region on the side of the city of Bobasna,” Kayte said. According to the governor, Russian troops suffered heavy losses of soldiers and equipment. The Ukrainian side learned from intercepted telephone conversations that “an entire Russian battalion refused to attack because it saw what was happening.”

Aerial photographs showed dozens of armored vehicles destroyed on the riverbank and dilapidated pontoon bridges. The British Defense Ministry says Russian troops have suffered heavy casualties as Ukrainian forces thwart an attempt to cross the river. The maneuver speaks of “pressure on Russian commanders to carry out their operations in eastern Ukraine.” The ministry said the Russian armed forces “have not made significant progress despite concentrating their forces in the area.”

Putin talks about “mistakes”

In one Phone call with Finnish President Sauli Ninisto Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin has described Helsinki’s planned NATO membership as wrong. Russia is not a threat to its neighbors, Putin insisted during the talks, according to the Kremlin. He warned that Finland’s move away from traditional neutrality would worsen relations with good neighbors. Sources in Helsinki say the talks were initiated by the Finnish president to explain his decision to join NATO in view of the Russian occupation of Ukraine. “The conversation was open and direct, but not intense. It was considered important to avoid tension,” Niinist√∂ said on the website of the Finnish presidential office. The Finnish government announced on Thursday that it wants to pave the way for NATO membership.

Turkey has called for talks on the PKK

Turkey is with them Booking of Finland and Sweden joining NATO Confirmed, but at the same time signaled a desire to speak. Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu said his country has always been supportive of the “open door policy”. However, Finland and Sweden supported “terrorist organizations” such as the banned Kurdish Workers’ Party PKK and Kurdish militant YPG in Syria. In addition, due to Turkey’s fighting against these groups, there were export restrictions on weapons obtained by Turkey from abroad. The majority of the Turkish people are against allowing these two states into NATO, “they call on us to stop it,” Cavusoglu said. We need to talk about these things – “with our allies in NATO and with these countries”.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has caused unrest in the coalition with negative statements about the possible NATO access to Finland and Sweden. “We are currently monitoring developments in Sweden and Finland, but we have no positive feedback on them,” he said. Scandinavian countries such as the banned Kurdish Workers’ Party PKK are almost “guest houses for terrorist organizations”.

If needed, the G7 would like to supply weapons for many years

If necessary, Germany and other G7 countries will continue to supply Ukrainian armed forces with weapons and other military equipment for the fight against Russian invaders. “We will continue to provide much-needed military and security assistance to Ukraine,” said a statement issued by the Foreign Ministers of the Group of Leading Democratic Industrialized Countries (G7). At the end of the consultations in Schleswig-Holstein, Foreign Minister Annalena Barbach also stressed the political support of the G7 countries. “We will never recognize the border changes that Russia wants to implement with military force,” he said.

Referring to the banned Ukrainian ports, he said alternatives to sending grain from Ukraine are currently being explored to break the Russian siege in the region. After problems with rail transport via Romania, they have been exploring exports via the Baltic ports. However, the prerequisites for how to reach the ports there must first be clarified. 25 million tons of grain were stored in Ukrainian ports.

Former Russian President Dmitry Medvedev responded to the G7 report with sarcasm and criticism. “Simply put, if the G7 does not recognize the new frontiers, our country will not do any harm,” he commented in a telegram. Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova launched a telegram attack on Barbach in response to the threat of a global famine. He wrote that prices had risen due to Western sanctions. “If you do not understand it, it is a sign of nonsense or deliberately misleading the public.”
