The strategy of the Ukrainian army in Bakhmut paid off, where the soldiers defended themselves for months and then launched a stronger counterattack. The British Prime Minister welcomed the Ukrainian President with a hug at his residence in the countryside. Volodymyr Zelensky announced more aid for Kyiv on his way back from the trip. Hungary has stopped EU aid to Ukraine of 500 million euros, asking for guarantees that the European fund will remain of a global character and that it will not invest all the money in sending weapons to Kiev. Recep Tayyip Erdogan is one step away from victory. The leader of Eritrea is visiting Beijing.


Bahmut paid off

The European Union approved Microsoft’s purchase of Activision Blizzard for $75 billion, giving the companies a victory after the procedure was stopped by the UK regulator, the Wall Street Journal reports. The European Commission announced that it gave the green light based on guarantees that Microsoft would allow Activision games to be available on competing platforms.

“Bahmut Strategy Pays Off,” is another front-page headline. Ukrainian troops have been defending the city for months, hiding in basements and sheltering from retreating artillery fire. Kiev launched counterattacks last week to reclaim miles of territory on the city’s western fringes, loosening Russia’s grip on key supply routes.


With Sunak in his arms

Members of the Conservative Party accused the Secretary of State of Great Britain of undermining Rishi Sunak’s authority and campaigning for the future leader of the party after Suela Brevejrman criticized experts and the elite, the Guardian writes. In her speech, she turned to the “radical left”, which was interpreted as an announcement that she would run. Colleagues urged her to stop campaigning and focus on her work.

The central photo shows the British Prime Minister and the Ukrainian President in an embrace, while Rishi Sunak welcomed Volodymyr Zelensky at his residence in the countryside. Zelensky was visiting certain countries to secure weapons and fighter jets for a counterattack against Russia.


New package for Zelenski

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky is returning to Ukraine with a new defense package, reports the Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform. “Three long days – both our fighters and the country are getting stronger. Much stronger, I’m sure of it. We are coming home with a new defense package: more new and powerful weapons for the front, more protection for our people. More political support,” Zelenski said in a video address.

The Japanese government plans to invite representatives of Ukraine to donate technology that will help the country rebuild after the Russian invasion, is another news on the agency’s website. The announcement comes ahead of the G7 summit to be held in Hiroshima on Friday. The restoration and reconstruction of social and economic infrastructure in Ukraine is expected to be discussed.


Hungary against arms for Kiev

American aid could be completely absent at the beginning of the summer, the Russian media house RT reports the writing of the world press. Washington has already spent more than $48 billion approved by Congress in December. Currently, he only has about six billion left to pay for weapons and equipment for Kiev, which means that financial aid to Ukraine will soon stop. Members of Congress frequently warn the White House that it will soon not be able to quickly deliver weapons to Ukraine, especially since Kiev is planning a much stronger counter-offensive.

Hungary has blocked the transfer of weapons and military equipment worth 500 million euros from the EU to Ukraine, while Kiev is scrambling to acquire weapons to launch a long-announced counterattack, RT also writes. The package was supposed to be the eighth shipment. Budapest asked for guarantees that the EU fund will remain global and will not be used exclusively to arm Ukraine.


Erdogan is one step away from victory

Recep Tayyip Erdogan entered the victorious second round on Monday after almost winning the presidential election in the first round, Saudi Arab News writes. The final count showed that despite the estimates and the biggest economic crisis since the ’90s, he managed to collect 49.5 percent of the votes, while his main opponent has 44.9 percent. The turnout was almost 90 percent.

In another front-page story, the paper said Israeli forces killed a Palestinian yesterday as his people commemorated 75 years since the Nakba, the “catastrophic” loss of land and homes to make way for the Israeli state. Saleh Sabra (22) was killed in the Askar camp east of Nablus in the occupied West Bank.


Eritrean leader in Beijing

President Xi Jinping underlined yesterday that China is ready to enter into cooperation with Eritrea in the field of infrastructure development, telecommunications, agriculture, mining during the expansion of relations between the two countries, reports China Daily from Hong Kong. He spoke with Eritrean President Isaiah Afwerki in Beijing.

The paper also reports the statement of the German scientist Claudia Felser, who indicated that international scientific and technological cooperation with China is of key importance for breaking the boundaries of science and creating innovations and solutions for a better society.
