Zelensky closes the anchor suggestion that Trump would have stopped the Russian invasion

President Vladimir Putin has suggested that the sending of more advanced rocket systems by the West to increase Ukraine’s defenses would not lead to any fundamental changes on the battlefield.

It comes after Putin previously said that Russia will launch attacks on a new set of Ukrainian targets if the United States begins supplying Kyiv with more powerful missiles.

According to TASS news agency, Putin told Rossiya-1 state television that if these missiles are supplied, “we will attack those targets that we have not yet hit.”

But while suggesting that they would exacerbate the conflict, President Vladimir Putin said: “We understand that this supply (of advanced rocket systems) from the United States and other countries is intended to compensate for the loss of this military equipment.

“This is nothing new,” he said. “Nothing changes in essence.”

It follows reports that multiple explosions shook the capital of Ukraine, Kyiv, early Sunday, reaching unspecified “infrastructure” targets.

This morning’s attacks mark the first assault on the Ukrainian capital in weeks after a period of relative calm in the city and its suburbs.

UK to send long-range missiles to Ukraine after Russia hits Kyiv

Defense Secretary Ben Wallace has announced that the United Kingdom will send its first long-range missiles to Ukraine for the first time since April after Russia struck the capital Kyiv on Sunday.

An unspecified number of M270 launchers, which can fire guided rockets with an accuracy of up to 50 miles, a range longer than any missile technology currently used in warfare, will be sent to Kyiv, Wallace said.

“The United Kingdom is on the side of Ukraine in this struggle and is taking a leading role in providing its heroic troops with the vital weapons they need to defend their country from an unprovoked invasion,” Wallace said in a statement issued by the British Ministry of Defense.

Zelensky finds war-torn Mariupol families: “Most without men”

Volodymyr Zelensky has visited families fleeing the battered port city of Mariupol, though they are shaken by the aftermath of the Russian siege that eventually captured the city.

“He met with the people of Mariupol, who managed to leave the city alive and with children. Here they found them [the people of] Khortytsia, humanly and warmly. The conditions, I have seen, are temporary, but not bad. He understood his difficult questions. I think we will fix them, “Zelensky said in a statement.

He added that every family in the territory has its own story. “Most of them were without men. Someone’s husband went to war, someone is in captivity, someone, unfortunately, died. A tragedy. Neither home nor loved one. But we have to live for the children. Real heroes: they are among us.

ICYMI: Ukraine condemns Emmanuel Macron’s comments “don’t humiliate Russia”

Kyiv has rejected Emmanuel Macron’s call not to “humiliate” Russia because of diplomacy, and said it made no sense to return to the negotiating table until Moscow forces were pushed back as far as possible.

The French president said on Saturday that it was vital that Russia was not humiliated so that when the fighting in Ukraine was over, a diplomatic solution could be reached.

Speaking to regional journalists, Macron also said he believed Paris would play a key role in negotiating peace talks between Moscow and Kyiv at the end of the fierce conflict.

These images show the damage caused to the Chernobyl nuclear power plant after Russian forces seized the plant in the early days of the Ukrainian war.

Russian troops occupied the site, which has a 19-mile exclusion zone, for five weeks and now for the first time photographers have had access to the abandoned plant and documented the trail of destruction left by soldiers.

When Ukraine loses troops, how long can the fight continue?

As soon as they finished burying a veteran colonel killed by Russian bombing, the cemetery workers prepared the next hole. Inevitably, given the speed with which death is falling on Ukrainian troops at the front, the empty tomb will not remain so for long.

Colonel Oleksandr Makhachek left behind a widow, Elena, and her daughters Olena and Myroslava-Oleksandra. In the first 100 days of the war, his grave was the 40th that excavators dug in the Zhytomyr military cemetery, 140 kilometers west of the capital, Kyiv.

He was killed on May 30 in the Luhansk region of eastern Ukraine, where fighting is taking place. Nearby, Viacheslav Dvornitskyi’s also-buried grave burial notice says he died on May 27. Other graves also showed soldiers killed with a few days apart: May 10, 9, 7, and 5. And this is just a cemetery, in just one of the cities, towns and villages of Ukraine putting soldiers to rest.

US intelligence agencies are reviewing their mistakes in Ukraine and Russia

The question was posed in a private briefing to US intelligence officials weeks before Russia began its invasion in late February: Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelenskyy took the British mold. Winston Churchill or Afghan Ashraf Ghani?

In other words, would Zelenskyy lead a historic resistance or flee while his government collapses?

Ultimately, US intelligence agencies underestimated Zelensky and Ukraine while overestimating Russia and its president, although they accurately predicted that Vladimir Putin would order an invasion.
