Ukraine, news on today’s war. Kirill, EU ok postpones the new sanctions package. US rockets in Kiev, wrath of Moscow

“What theAmerica will do and will not do in Ukraine“. In an editorial in the “New York Times” he is the president of the United States, Joe Bidento draw the red line of aid that Washington is willing to give to the Ukrainians to stop the invasion, and what not, in order not to risk direct confrontation between Born And Russia. The day after denying Kiev missiles with a range of more than 300 kilometers capable of hitting Russian territory, Biden announces that he will supply the M142 medium-range high-mobility artillery missile system (Himars), with rockets with a range of almost 80 km, more than 25 of the M777 howitzers already supplied, and more than any weapon supplied today in Kiev. And then, again, anti-tank Javelin missiles, anti-aircraft Stingers, radars, drones, Mi-17 helicopters and ammunition, all as part of an additional $ 700 million military aid package and proof of the American willingness to quickly dispatch. of a “significant amount of weapons and ammunition that will allow Ukraine to fight on the ground and be in the strongest possible position at the negotiating table”. Biden knows he is speaking while the war is raging, on the hundredth day of the invasion, but he is aware that the conclusion of the conflict can only come “through diplomacy”. In the meantime, the US will complete the strengthening of NATO’s eastern flank.


No willingness to go head-to-head with Moscow. The Secretary of State, Antony Blinken, said that “Ukraine has assured that it will not use the missile systems supplied by Washington against targets on Russian territory”. Defending Kiev from Putin’s aggression, however, adds Biden, “is not only the right thing to do, a stable Europe is also in our vital national interest”. No Washington’s willingness to overthrow Putin, unlike what Biden himself said on his recent visit to Poland. “As long as the US and our allies are not attacked, we will not engage in the conflict by sending troops or attacking Russian forces.” As for the nuclear weapon, heralded “rhetorically by Russia in a dangerous and extremely irresponsible way”, nothing suggests that Putin wants to press the atomic button. At a certain point, the parties will sit at the negotiating table, but the US “will not press the Ukrainian government to make territorial transfers”. It is in Kiev’s right to defend itself from war that the Russians stubbornly carry on. Yesterday, the spokesman of the Kremlin, Dmitry Peskov, reiterated that “not to rule out a priori” a meeting between Putin and Zelensky, but specified that it must be aimed at signing a document that provides for the Russian annexation of Crimea and Donbass. Unthinkable now. “We have tried to give the Ukrainians – explains number 2 for US National Security, Jon Fines – exactly what they need to resist”. Especially in the Donbass, where according to the German Foreign Minister, Annalena Baerbock, the Russians have adopted «a new strategy: first the missiles arrive, then the planes with artillery and then, when everything is already destroyed, the tanks enter. It is a new wave of destruction “, aimed at” depopulation and extinction of civilization and statehood “. And for this reason Berlin will grant the Ukrainians even more effective anti-air defense systems. Moscow’s response to Biden’s announcement is hard and predictable.

The supply of long-range rocket launchers will discourage Ukrainians, according to Peskov, from resuming peace talks, “this is why we are certainly negative about it.” The United States is “intentionally and diligently adding fuel to the fire, adhering to the line of fighting against Russia to the last Ukrainian.” And the Russian Foreign Minister, Sergei Lavrov, speaks of “direct provocation, aimed at involving the West in military action”, with the risk of “a widening of the conflict”. His deputy, Sergei Ryabkov, in turn calls “attempts to present the decision as containing an element of self-control unnecessary.” The 80-kilometer missiles, if brought to the border line, can theoretically strike in Russia. And according to Peskov, “the Ukrainian promise not to attack our territory is not to be believed.” Times and ways are increasingly dictated by the course on the ground. Blinken is convinced that this war will go on “for many more months”. According to Ukrainian intelligence, Putin’s order is to complete the conquest of the Donbass by 1 July.


But Western military analysts are instead persuaded that the Russians are repeating the mistakes they made at the beginning, when they tried in vain to occupy all of Ukraine and overthrow Zelensky. In particular, by launching the ground advance with the notorious groups of tactical battalions on targets gradually reduced by the formidable reaction of the Kiev army, without first ensuring air superiority and the total destruction of enemy defenses. And exposing the unmotivated troops to the Ukrainian counterattack. Like in Kiev, in Karkhiv, and now in Kherson.
