A meeting on plans to inspect Ukraine’s Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant has been criticized by Russia’s envoy to the United Nations (U.N.) as a waste of time because of Russian “lies.”
The largest nuclear power facility in Europe, which is currently under Russian control, has recently been under increased scrutiny due to worries over a potential radioactive event. Russia and Ukraine have both accused one another of shelling the area around the plant. Russian U.N. Ambassador Vassily Nebenzia was accused of disseminating “fictitious soundbites” by Ukrainian U.N. Ambassador Sergiy Kyslytsya during a Security Council discussion on a probable plant inspection by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), which Russia requested.
Nebenzia claimed that the “nuclear safety status” at Zaporizhzhia has lately “deteriorated” before blaming the Ukrainian military for carrying out many attacks this month that damaged the plant, including at least one hit that purportedly employed howitzers provided by the United States. For failing to denounce the purported attacks, the Russian envoy charged Ukraine’s Western partners of “criminal passivity.”


The two reasons Russia might attack Ukraine on Wednesday: Former defense secretary Leon Panetta

Panetta looks at Russia’s ongoing war on Ukraine on ‘Your World’

LEON PANETTA: I’m sure intelligence is trying to keep track of the growing threats from Russia. There are two things that are coming in at play here. One is Independence Day tomorrow, which celebrates 31 years of their independence. And the second is obviously the killing of the daughter of this ultra-nationalist. And the Russians say they’re blaming Ukrainian intelligence for having conducted that assassination. Those two things obviously raise concerns that Russia is going to use tomorrow as a target for basically going after Ukraine. And I think it’s for that reason that the alerts are going out not only to our citizens, but President Zelenskyy is also warning Ukrainians as well that there may be attacks. 



Russia’s war in Ukraine started 6 months ago — and there appears to be no end in sight

Six months have passed since Russia started its invasion of Ukraine, an act that stunned and was virtually widely denounced.
Although it was generally believed that Russia was poised to quickly replace Ukraine’s pro-Western government, those expectations soon dissipated.
After six months, the invasion is now engaged in a protracted, exhausting “war of attrition” that costs Russia money as well as causing massive death, destruction, and displacement in Ukraine.

After six months, many observers believe that the conflict will continue to be a protracted, bloody “war of attrition” that costs Russia money while also causing significant death, destruction, and displacement in Ukraine.
