War crimes dossier to accuse Russia of deliberately causing starvation in Ukraine
"We are cutting the logistical routes of the Russians in the Bakhmut direction," - head of the press service of the Eastern grouping of the AFU troops Ilya Yevlash
According to him, the AFU already reach one logistic route of the occupants (the highway Bakhmut - Gorlovka, which is 3 km from the contact line. This is a working distance for our mortars and UAVs) and are working to cut the others.
russia is moving troops from offensive do defensive:
"Russia's deployment of the 25th Army units in Bakhmut instead of Kupyansk is likely to disrupt Russia's efforts to gain a foothold in the Kupyansk sector, as Russia needs these troops to continue its offensive"
The ISW confirms that the Wagnerites are returning to the front lines
It is noted that they joined a new "unknown organization". These fighters, according to analysts, will not be able to tangibly change the situation on the battlefield. They will not show the same effectiveness that they had under the leadership of Prigozhin and Utkin.

Jede/r, die/der schon mal auf einem Markt etwas gekauft hat, weiß, das die Aussagen Lawrows bedeuten, dass die Kriegsparteien bereits in Verhandlungen stehen. Eine kategorische Ablehnung hört sich anders an.

Ukraine: Which Way Out?
If there's an uneasy silence on the Left—and there's a reason for that.
The USA Left’s relative silence regarding US involvement in the Ukraine War, while surprising, is also understandable. Surprising, given the Left’s nearly blanket opposition to 21st century American military-related operations of such magnitude; understandable, in that the U.S. is actually on the right side in this case.
"What is the right side?"
FT: The US decided to provide Ukraine with ATACMS ahead of Zelensky’s visit.

U.S. approves ATACMS missiles for Ukraine; also, Ukraine makes critical advance through Russian lines and takes out many high-level officers with deep strike
As always a great situation report by @TheStudyofWar from the #UkraineWar. This time a lot about yesterdays attack on Black Sea Fleet Command HQ in #Sevastopol but also about the advance South East of Robotyne towards #Vebove which could be the stepstone in the direction of #Tokmak some 40 km. from Verbove.
Tokmak is interesting because it’s railway station is known to be used by #Russia as a supply hub.

Poland ends arms supply to Ukraine to focus on its own defense: Polish PM
> “We are no longer transferring weapons to #Ukraine, because we are now arming #Poland with more modern weapons,” Mateusz Morawiecki said, in response to a question from a reporter on whether Warsaw would continue to support Kyiv despite the grain exports disagreement.
The Ukrainian government was savvy and quick with its #socialmedia strategy, showcasing stories of Ukrainian resistance all over social media only days after Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022.
This was back when the site known as Twitter had content moderation and a level playing field.
Poland will no longer arm Ukraine to focus on its own #defence, the Polish prime minister said on Wednesday, a few hours after Warsaw summoned Kyiv's ambassador amid a row over grain exports.
"We are no longer transferring weapons to Ukraine, because we are now arming Poland with more modern weapons," Mateusz Morawiecki said.
Ukraine war remains the focus as UN General Assembly gets under way
"If Ukraine falls, the US will eventually be at war with Russia." - Of course. In essence Ukraine is helping the West by fighting to keep an expansionist dictatorship at bay; not the other way around.
Only a fool would believe that Russia will not try to dominate even more territory if successful in Ukraine. (Regretfully there are quite a few such fools to be found in Western countries).

According to echofm.online #Russia has 'included the former mayor of #Kherson Igor #Kolykhaev to the list of prisoners of war #POW , the Red Cross told his son. After the #Ukrainian city was captured by the Russian military last spring, the mayor refused to cooperate with the occupying forces and was detained. There was no news about him for more than a year. Kolykhaev's whereabouts are still unknown.'

A NYTimes opinion piece by Thomas L Friedman
Donald Trump pleased at praise from Putin: ‘I like that he said that’
Former US president makes comment in interview with NBC after being told Putin approved of his stance on Russia invasion
Told during a recorded interview with the new NBC Meet the Press moderator Kristen Welker that Putin had fawned over his stance on Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, Trump replied: “I like that he said that. Because that means what I’m saying is right.”
@ChristopherJM President #Zelensky probably doesn't qualify for the #Nobel peace prize, thanks to certain unavoidable technicalities, but damn if he isn't right up there with the best of the previous laureates. He stands on the fragile battle line between the increasingly collaborative, resurgent and belligerent despots and free peoples still believing in (more or less) liberal democracy.
A trained lawyer at a time when law seemed like a joke, he turned to comedy and... Ukrainians and all the rest of us should feel so lucky that he chose to run for office and win.
