Ukraine News ++ Zelenskyi: “We will not give up an inch of our country” ++

DAccording to President Volodymyr Zelenskyj, the situation on the war fronts in Ukraine is difficult. There is currently less news from war zones, Selenskyj said in his daily video address on Tuesday evening. “But that doesn’t mean the intensity of the fight has lessened.”

“Fierce battles for positions are still going on in some areas,” Zelensky said. “And as before, it is very difficult in the Donetsk region.” Nothing has changed in the order given to Russian troops to advance to the borders of the administrative region. But: “We have not left a single centimeter of our country there.”

Intensive work is being done to restore normal life in the liberated areas away from the war zones. This applies above all to the restoration of gas and electricity supply, for example in the Kharkiv region. And to help people through the coming winter, the government has exempted imports of energy supply equipment — generators or transformers — from import duties.

Russia wants to take advantage of the coming winter. “We clearly understand: turning winter into a weapon is the plan of a terrorist state against our state and all of Europe,” Zelensky said. “But we are doing everything we can to ensure that this Russian plan, like the various previous plans, fails.”

4:00am – Ireland calls on Ukraine to join the EU soon

Ireland spoke in favor of Ukraine’s speedy accession to the EU. “What inspires many Ukrainians is the dream of a different future,” Irish Foreign and Defense Minister Simon Coveney said in Dublin. “The future we enjoy in the EU today is based on peace, stability, prosperity, democracy and all that comes from it.”

“But above all, a country currently fighting for its survival against a military superpower should be a full EU member, not some kind of partial membership or neighborhood agreement,” the minister added. Apart from Ukraine, other countries such as the Balkan states or the former Soviet republics of Moldova and Georgia should also benefit from the enlargement. “We have long delayed the process of allowing some Balkan countries.” Of course, there are mandatory standards that admission candidates must comply with. “But we should celebrate progress when it happens.”

Coveney stressed that Ireland was one of the EU countries calling for tougher sanctions against Russia. A Russian war of aggression is a flagrant violation of international law. The aggression is so serious in Europe that Ireland wants to see the strongest sanctions response possible, even at great cost to the country. Ireland has contributed €66 million to EU military aid so far. That’s the same percentage as Germany, Covini said.
