Mere ballistic missile testing or warning

Russia has launched a new intercontinental missile “as a warning to Ukraine’s Western allies,” the New York Times writes. “Steel leaders” are receiving calls for help from the steel factory in Mariupol, according to the Guardian. NATO will participate in the evacuation, Ukrinform reports. The rocket is “not a threat”, but “strengthening the potential”, according to RT. The SNS is preparing voters for imposing sanctions on Russia, Danas claims

Moscow has launched a new intercontinental ballistic missile “with the intention of warning”, but “it is not a threat”. Fighters of the “Azov” brigade from the steel factory in Mariupol are calling on the West for help. NATO will participate in the evacuation of civilians and the wounded. The SNS is preparing voters for sanctions against Russia.

New launch as a warning

The front page of the New York Times opens with a photo from the basement in Avdivka in Donbas in eastern Ukraine, where residents are fleeing the bombing. They have been living in the shadow of the Russian-backed separatist struggle for years, the paper said, but the current danger with Russian forces at the entrance to the city threatens to be much more fatal.

The text next to the top of the page states that Russia tested a new intercontinental ballistic missile on Wednesday, while continuing with strong attacks in the east, “with the intention of warning Ukraine’s western allies.” Intense fire hit more than 1,100 targets in line with Russia’s efforts to focus an attack on the Donbass region in the southeast.

The paper writes in the central part of the first page about “a new unit that is devastating the rural parts of Colombia”. Joel, 36, spent six years in the military, fighting a brutal rebellion that has terrorized Colombia for decades. “But now he has a new employer: an illegal armed group, which has the same rebel goals as the one he fought against throughout his military career,” the text reads.


Call for help from Mariupol

“Johnson cannot prevent the investigation of Partigate after the revolt of the MPs,” is the main headline in the British Guardian. Prime Minister Boris Johnson has been forced to stop blocking the investigation into whether he deceived MPs regarding violations of covid measures in the Partygate scandal, and instead persuaded them to postpone the interrogation. The central photo shows the queen with her two ponies, a picture submitted by the royal family on the occasion of her 96th birthday.

Also at the top of the page is the headline “Last Hours” for Ukrainian forces in Mariupol. The Ukrainian naval commander in Mariupol said yesterday that these were “the last days, maybe even hours” of his unit, at the moment when the Russian deadline for surrender expires. “There are 10 times more enemy soldiers,” said Sergij Volina, commander of the 36th Naval Brigade, in a video address: “We appeal and ask all world leaders to help us. We ask them to undertake an extraction operation and take us to the territory of a third country. “


NATO will evacuate civilians

Secretary of the National Council for Security and Defense of Ukraine Oleksiy Danilov said that Russia’s big attack on the east has not started yet, reports the state news agency Ukrinform. “Fighting has begun on the entire front in the Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv regions. But it was their way of testing the strength of our armed units. The attempt failed. Now they will continue to do so. It is a question of time when the so-called great attack will begin, “Danilov pointed out.

NATO allies could be involved in providing passage for civilians and the wounded from the occupied city of Mariupol, is another news published by Ukrinform. “There was some hope that the Russians would allow the passage of civilians and wounded soldiers,” said Victoria Noland, the US Undersecretary of State. She did not specify how the allies would report the evacuation, adding that the siege of Mariupol was an indicator of “the brutality of the war and war crimes committed by Vladimir Putin.”


“No threat” ballistic missile

Russia’s launch of the new RS-28 Sarmatian intercontinental ballistic missile was a routine test and not a threat to the United States, the Pentagon said, as reported by the Russian state agency Rasha Tudej. It is not surprising, since Moscow informed the United States in advance about the agreement on the control of nuclear weapons. The rocket was fired from the Plesetsk military cosmodrome, and Vladimir Putin called it “an event of great importance for the state”: “This truly unique weapon will strengthen the potential of our armed forces, ensure Russia’s security from external threats and stop those who try to threaten us rhetoric. “

RT also announces that the Ukrainian forces located in the Azovstal steel factory in the coastal town of Mariupol on the Black Sea have set conditions for leaving the besieged location. Svyatoslav Palamar, deputy commander of the neo-Nazi brigade Azov, said in a video address that the troops were ready to leave the factory “with the help of a vague third party ‘.” The fighters want to be left with weapons, as well as the evacuation of wounded and dead soldiers. “Palamar refused to surrender to Russian forces or a unit of the Donetsk People’s Republic, which is keeping this industrial plant under siege,” RT states.


Volkswagen is not coming to Serbia

“Volkswagen does not plan to open a plant in Serbia,” it was confirmed to Politika at the headquarters of the German car giant. At the moment, there are no plans to build production plants for “Volkswagen” in Serbia, said Robin Ashhof, director of communication in this company, regarding speculations in the domestic media to discuss the opening of a factory in our country with this German manufacturer. Serbian officials are currently negotiating with two car manufacturers to start production in our country, which has brought the “Volkswagen” back into the public game, with which they talked about the possible opening of a factory somewhere in Šumadija before the pandemic.

Preparations for sanctions against Russia

Is the progressive government renouncing pro-Russian support and turning to the West in foreign policy, Danas asks, entitled “SNS is preparing the people for sanctions against Russia.” Vladan Živulović says that it is obvious “that Vučić is under great pressure and is seriously breaking down”. “In 10 years of SNS rule, everything has been done to distance ourselves from the EU as much as possible and to fall into the steel embrace of aggressor Russia,” says Aleksandar Olenik. The interlocutors of the list point out that the president is now “increasingly inciting the Prime Minister Ana Brnabić to speak publicly about possible sanctions against Russia”.

In a separate text, the paper writes about the dispute over the award of the City of Belgrade for journalism. “Scandal with the assistance of the authorities”, is the title of the text. “It was unrealistic for Brana Milunov to be awarded for the feuilleton ‘Listen to Studio B’, because she wrote about their week in ‘enemy’ Danas,” says Ivan Mrdjen.
