Putin threatens to transfer nuclear weapons to Belarus as Ukraine moves closer to NATO

Air raid sirens sounded in Kyiv and other parts of Ukraine on Friday as South African President Cyril Ramaphosa and other African leaders visited the Ukrainian capital as part of a peace mission. Regional police say three people were injured and more than 30 houses were damaged following a Russian missile attack.

The attack came as Putin gave a speech at the St. Petersburg Economic Forum, where he said Russia’s finances were in good health and that the country must increase its defense spending.

In a separate development, an international team of investigators said in a new report that it is “highly likely” that Russian forces deliberately destroyed the Kakhovka dam in southern Ukraine. The dam’s collapse caused flooding in the Kherson region, killing at least 27 people.

Both Russia and Ukraine have blamed each other for the dam’s destruction.

Key points:

  • Air raid sirens sounded in Kyiv and other parts of Ukraine as South African leaders visited.

The latest developments in the Russia-Ukraine war are a reminder of the ongoing humanitarian crisis in the country. Millions of people have been displaced from their homes, and the death toll continues to rise. The international community must continue to do everything it can to help the people of Ukraine, and to put an end to this senseless war.

In addition to the humanitarian crisis, the war in Ukraine is also having a significant impact on the global economy. The price of oil and gas has risen sharply, and there are concerns about food shortages. The war is also disrupting global supply chains, which is leading to higher prices for goods and services.

The war in Ukraine is a major geopolitical crisis, and it is having a profound impact on the world. The international community must work together to find a peaceful solution to this conflict, and to prevent it from escalating further.
