After a good defense that forced the Russian troops to retreat, Kiev is considering the risky deployment of a smaller army and weaker equipment compared to the Russian one, writes the New York Times. By the end of next week, the British Prime Minister will present a plan for overcoming the energy crisis, the Guardian reports. Displaced persons should be provided with conditions before winter begins, reports Ukrinform. Moscow and Kiev are interested in a possible IAEA “protection zone” in Zaporozhye, RT reports.

After an extraordinary defense that forced Russian troops to retreat, Ukraine is considering further steps and risky deployment of a small number of troops and equipment compared to Russia. The British Prime Minister is expected to announce an emergency plan to overcome the energy crisis by the end of next week. Those displaced from Ukraine should be provided with conditions before the coming winter. A possible “protection zone” in Zaporozhye is of interest to both Moscow and Kyiv, the director of the International Atomic Energy Agency pointed out. According to CIA data, Serbia ranks first in the world in mortality from pollution.

Risky further moves by the army

After a remarkable defense by the Ukrainian army in the northeast that forced Russian troops to retreat and reshaped the front line by hundreds of miles, Ukraine’s leaders considered further steps that are risky but could decide which direction the war will continue, writes the New York Times. If the forces were deployed too far, which are still much weaker and less well equipped than the Russians, they could become even more vulnerable.

The American daily also deals with the situation in Britain, announcing that King Charles III made his own kingdom even before he inherited his mother’s. Although he officially took the throne on Saturday, Charles has spent half his life turning the royal estate into a billion-dollar landmark and one of the royal family’s most lucrative businesses.

An emergency plan for the energy crisis as soon as possible

“PM under pressure to reveal details of energy crisis plan,” headlined the front page of Britain’s Guardian. As the country emerges from national mourning over the Queen’s death, an emergency budget is expected to be unveiled by the end of next week that would bring tax cuts over the winter for millions of people and spell out help with gas bills. Although politics remained paralyzed by the death of the Queen, Liz Truss was under pressure from the Tories to come up with a plan as early as Thursday or Friday next week.

Aid to the displaced before winter

Deputy Prime Minister of Ukraine Irina Vereshchuk spoke with Antonio Vytorin, director of the International Organization for Migration (IOM) about IOM’s participation in helping internationally displaced persons before the arrival of winter, Ukrainian news agency Ukrinform reports. “Ukraine is facing a big challenge ahead of winter. We must transfer the evacuees to safe areas and provide them with decent conditions. This is our humanitarian front that needs support, including from international organizations. That is why we hope for effective cooperation with the IOM. We will win together,” she said.

In a separate news release, Ukrinform also announces that the International Atomic Energy Agency has announced that the second supply line in Zaporizhia is back in operation, that is, it is working to safely cool the reactor.

The “protection zone” is of interest to both Moscow and Kyiv

Russia and Ukraine are interested in the International Atomic Energy Agency creating a “protection zone” around the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant, IAEA director Rafael Grossi said, reports the Russian news agency RT on its portal. Although there is no agreement yet, both sides are interested in this topic and are inquiring about the mentioned proposal. This “zone” would include a ceasefire, “and it could include other things,” he said.

Germany crossed a red line with Russia when it sent weapons to Ukraine, the Russian ambassador in Berlin Sergej Nechaev pointed out yesterday, and RT also reports. This decision collapsed decades of reconciliation since the end of World War II and the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union, the diplomat added.

Vučić at the summit

The central topic on the first page of Politika is the participation of the President of Serbia at the Brdo-Brioni summit with a photo of Zoran Milanović, Aleksandar Vučić and Borut Pahor. At yesterday’s meeting of leaders of the Western Balkans within the framework of the Brdo-Brioni process, a joint conclusion was adopted, the main message of which is to reaffirm support for the acceleration of the European path of the Western Balkans. The President of Serbia reported yesterday after the session that a six-point document had been adopted.

At the top of the page is the announcement of an interview with the president of the People’s Party, Vuk Jeremić, who says that unity is needed around Kosovo and Metohija. As he points out, the session of the Assembly on Kosmet must not be allowed to be reduced to a mere exchange of accusations between the government and the opposition, nor to end without the adoption of a document that will define the framework for future procedures.

The church as a political organization

On the occasion of the church award given to the Hague convict Vojislav Šešelj, the newspaper Danas publishes the headline “SPC looks more and more like a political organization”. Vesna Pešić says that Aleksandar Vučić assigned the representation of the ultraconservative ideology to the church and the extreme right. “This recognition represents a continuous effort of the Serbian Orthodox Church to valorize and concrete the worst phenomena in Serbian society,” says Aida Ćorović.

At the top of the first page is the title “Killing citizens with air”. Namely, ecologists drew attention to the fact that, according to the CIA list, Serbia is the first in the world in mortality from pollution. Romania, Lithuania, Latvia, Bulgaria, Estonia, Belarus and Croatia are also in the top ten places. Ecoguard also notes that we have the highest rate of newly diagnosed children with some type of cancer. And Belgrade is first in terms of pollution on the list of European cities with more than a million inhabitants.
