Kremlin: On the North Stream Hysterical West

“It is possible to restore the Nord Stream, it must be done, but it is not yet clear how long the restoration will take.” The Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov, quoted by Interfax, speaks of gas leaks from the Nord Stream 1 and 2 pipelines on the Baltic Sea. “We still need to examine these areas and find out what’s basically down there to understand the scale of the disaster,” Peskov added.

“It is not clear what kind of international cooperation we can count on in this situation, given the hysterically antagonistic attitude of the entire West towards our country,” he added.

Farnesina to Russian Ambassador: Nuclear threat undermines global security

The Secretary General of the Farnesina, Ambassador Ettore Francesco Sequi, invited the Russian Ambassador Sergey Razov to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation this morning as part of a coordinated action with the partners of the European Union. Ambassador Sequi – reading Farnesina’s note – first offered Italy’s strongest condemnation of the farce referendum illegally conducted by the Russian Federation to annex the occupied territories in Ukraine’s Donetsk, Luhansk, Kherson and Zaporizhia regions. The Secretary General of the Farnesina later asked the Russian authorities to reverse these illegal acts, the result of which Italy does not intend to recognize, and to immediately, completely and unconditionally withdraw Russian forces from Ukrainian territory. The threat of the use of nuclear weapons, the very serious violations of the principles and rules of the United Nations Charter seriously undermine global security. Ambassador Sequi therefore reiterated Italian and European determination to increase pressure on the Russian Federation to stop aggression and reaffirmed Italy’s support for Ukraine’s full sovereignty, independence and territorial integrity.

Kyiv: Recapturing Lyman is key to progress in Lugansk

Kiev’s armed forces’ control of the city of Lyman could prove to be a “key factor” in helping Ukraine regain lost territory in the nearby Lugansk region, Lugansk Governor Serhiy Gaidai said, according to reports in the Guardian.

The recapture of Lyman, Gaidai stressed, represents Russia’s biggest loss of ground since Ukraine’s lightning-fast counteroffensive in northeast Kharkiv last month. Russian forces, the governor recalled, took Lyman in May and used it as a logistics and transportation center for operations in the north of Donetsk region. Lyman’s strategic importance, according to the British Ministry of Defense, lies in its command position at a road bridge over the Siverskyi Donets River, behind which Russia is trying to consolidate its defenses.

Former CIA Chief Petraeus: If Putin uses nuclear power, we will eliminate Russian forces in Ukraine

The United States, along with NATO allies, would “eliminate” Russian forces in Ukraine if Russian President Vladimir Putin decides to use nuclear weapons in Ukraine. That’s what retired general and former CIA chief David Petraeus told ABC. For Petraeus, Western powers must take Russia’s nuclear threats seriously.

Tactical nuclear weapons, what they are and why they worry: Putin has more warheads than all of NATO combined

“Just to give you a guess” in the case “I think we would respond by eliminating every Russian conventional force that we see and identify on the battlefield in Ukraine and also in Crimea and every ship in the Black Sea can,” explained Petraeus. A nuclear attack «could not go unanswered. But it doesn’t have to be a bigger answer: It’s non-nuclear for nuclear. Here, too, you don’t want to get into a nuclear escalation, but you have to show that you can’t accept that under any circumstances.”
