Latest recap on Ukrainian-Russian conflict

The Ukraine-Russia war has dropped off major headlines for several weeks, but the conflict has now reached the 100-day mark since it began. The armed conflict at Sievierodonetsk brings bold but unverifiable claims from both Ukrainian and Russian sides, with both countries saying they have inflicted major casualties. 


 


Early morning on Sunday, June 5 brought the first airstrike on the Ukrainian capital Kyiv in about a month from Russian forces. Russia’s ministry of defense claims that the attack hit T-72 tanks that were being stored inside a car repair business. The tanks had been supplied by other European and western allies to Ukraine. 


 


 


 


Ukrainian Railways chair of the board Oleksandr Kamyshinsays that Russia’s claims are false, and that the airstrikes hit grain carriages. The attacks seem to be an attempt to cut off supply from the capital to the fierce battleground in the east.


 


Additionally, Vladimir Putin warned the United States against delivering the longer-range missiles it had promised Ukraine. If that were to happen, Putin said “we will strike at those targets which we have not yet been hitting.” There was no specified location mentioned by the prime minister. 


 


Putin also says that the US’s provisions of weapons to Ukraine are futile: “We understand that this supply [of advanced rocket systems] from the United States and some other countries is meant to make up for the losses of this military equipment. This is nothing new. It doesn’t change anything in essence.”


 


Interference from European and the United States in the war has irritated Russian forces. Putin has given his warning to cease the shipment of additional rockets, and now dismissed the provisions from other countries to Ukraine.


 


Ukraine issued its own warning to Russia, after a cruise missile flew dangerously close to hitting a nuclear power plant in PivedennoukrainskEnergoatom, a Ukrainian nuclear energy company, said that Russian forces “still do not understand that even the smallest fragment of a missile that can hit a working power unit can cause a nuclear catastrophe and radiation leak”.
