Germany sends combat vehicles

Along with a photo of a Ukrainian soldier burying his brother in Lviv, the New York Times reports that the United States is urging allies to help Kiev with weapons. Germany, which “feared not to provoke Russia”, announced that it would send dozens of combat anti-aircraft vehicles. This announcement of Germany as the largest European economy and Russia’s largest trading partner from the West, “was another sign that the war is still heating up and that diplomacy has failed.” “The German decision is also seen as a strong confirmation of the harsh message of the Biden administration, which pointed out that it not only wants Russia to be defeated in Ukraine, but also seriously weakened by the conflict that President Vladimir Putin started two months ago,” the paper said.

Another headline on the front page reads “Terror in villages on the front under constant fire.” Squeezed between the battle lines of Russia and Ukraine in the area of ​​strong fighting in the southeast of the country, the small town of Orekhov is under constant attacks. Residents who hide in basements rarely go outside, the New York Times writes.



DJ accused of misconduct

The British Guardian reports that the famous DJ Tim Westwood has been accused by several women of inappropriate sexual behavior. He claims that he abused his position in the music industry in order to use them. Three women accused him of opportunism and predatory sexual behavior, while four others claimed that he touched them at public events. Testimonies were presented to the teams of this paper and the BBC in a joint investigation of the former radio DJ.

“The health agency stops Kovid tests and cancels jobs,” is another headline on the front page. The public body set up by the prime minister to fight the coronavirus at the time of the pandemic outbreak will reduce the number of employees by 40 percent and plans to stop routine testing in hospitals and nursing homes in order to reduce costs.

At the bottom of the page, you can read the following: “Russia is intensifying the rhetoric around the enclave.”



Ukrenegro Observer Member

The national electric power company “Ukrenegro” received the status of an observer member in the European network of electricity transmission system operators ENTSO-E, reports the Ukrainian news agency Ukriform. The agreement was signed in Warsaw. The company will be able to attend network meetings, join expert and working groups in the electricity market, and the like. The Minister of Energy of Ukraine, German Galushchenko, pointed out that with this agreement, the country is “even closer to full integration into the European energy market” and that it contributes to further development.

The United Kingdom has announced that it will abolish all tariffs and taxes on goods imported from Ukraine, which will save thousands of jobs during the war, the agency also reports. “I am grateful to Britain and personally to Prime Minister Boris Johnson for his prompt and positive response to our request for trade liberalization. At the moment, that is extremely important as support for our country, “said President Volodymyr Zelenski.



Putin compared Donetsk to Kosovo

Russian President Vladimir Putin hosted UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres in the Kremlin on Tuesday, the Russian state news agency RT reports. The current crisis in Ukraine was discussed at the meeting. Putin explained why he launched a military operation in February. The move to recognize the secession of the Donetsk and Luhansk republics, “Moscow was based on the precedent of Kosovo, which was established by a court with the support of the UN,” Putin pointed out. The republics were formed after the population refused to accept the plan from the west in 2014. Guterres reminded that the UN itself still does not recognize Kosovo as an independent entity, while Putin pointed out that it still received wide recognition in the West.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken pointed out that Washington has nothing against declaring Ukraine neutral, Rasha Tudej also reports. The United States is trying to arm Kiev in order to strengthen its position on the negotiating table, but “they cannot be bigger Ukrainians than Ukrainians”, and the final decision will depend on them.



Countdown to the NATO-Moscow conflict

“Countdown to the direct conflict between NATO and Russia”, is the main headline on the front page of Politika. In an open message from Washington officials that the American goal is no longer just defending Ukraine, but also weakening Russia, Moscow said that they already believe that they are “essentially” at war with the North Atlantic Organization, and warn of the danger of nuclear conflict and World War III. “During his visit to Kiev, the first man of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, pointed out that the American goal is to weaken Russia. This is a change in relation to the rhetoric so far, which was mainly based on claims that the United States only wants Ukraine to defend itself from aggressors, “the text reads.

Yesterday, Serbian President Aleksandar Vucic met with US Assistant Secretary of State for European and Asian Affairs Karen Donfried to discuss bilateral relations, Serbia’s European integration, Belgrade-Pristina dialogue, and other current geopolitical issues.



People’s patrols are “arrested” by order

A group of young men published a video of a “civil arrest” and announced new actions in Belgrade, reads the front page of Danas with the headline “People’s patrols ‘arrest’ in agreement with the regime”. The photo shows young men in T-shirts with the inscription “People’s Patrol”. The group published a video of the arrest of the alleged pickpocket, but it is unknown whether he was handed over to the police. Borivoje Borović says that these are young fascists who, with the approval of the authorities, intimidate the people and replace the criminal group of Veljko Belivuk. “It is about classic racist behavior and something that is extremely dangerous for any society based on the rule of law,” Miodrag Jovanovic points out.

At the top of the front page, the paper also asks how the suppression of the crown will continue. “The crisis headquarters should not have existed,” is the title of the text. “From the beginning, it was obvious that decisions are not made on the basis of professional criteria, but for the sake of securing political points of the government,” states Srdjan Hercigonja.
