Do “everything” to prevent “the destabilization” of Russia and prevent “the evil ones who are striving to shake up the situation within the Federation” from succeeding in their intentions. This is the warning launched by Vladimir Putin in a meeting with the permanent members of the Security Council of Russia. Words that explain the tension reigning around Moscow. Indeed, attacks on Russian territory are now the order of the day. The last one in the Belgorod region claimed the lives of two people. The Kremlin continues to reiterate that at the moment the option of a dialogue with Kiev “does not exist” and warns the West against Ukraine’s possible accession to NATO.
“It would be a major source of problems for years to come,” said presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov. Kiev always hopes for a future within the Alliance, but knows that this cannot happen in the short term. “There will be no NATO members while the war is going on. Not because we don’t want to, because it’s impossible,” says Volodymyr Zelensky. The Ukrainian leader, on the other hand, is decidedly more optimistic about the battlefield counter-offensive. “It is difficult for me to say how it will be, it is not a film – he argues -. The main thing is that Russia sees and hears. You will understand when that happens.” On the occasion of Republic Day, the Ukrainian president also reserves a special thought for Italy, thanking it for its “solidarity” and “full support”. “Together – he writes on social media – we will achieve our common goal: a just and sustainable peace in Europe and the world”.
In the role of neutral actor, but very interested, continues China. Beijing guarantees that it will continue to seek “a peaceful resolution” and again denies the rumors of the Wall Street Journal according to which in the Chinese peace plan for Ukraine, in addition to the proposal for an immediate ceasefire, there would also be recognition of the occupied territories by the Moscow military as part of Russia. The report “is not in line with the truth,” said Special Representative for Eurasian Affairs Li Hui. CIA chief Bill Burns reportedly went to China last May in great secrecy in an attempt to “dissolve” tensions in relations between Washington and Beijing. According to the Financial Times, the number one in American intelligence would have met with senior Chinese officials from 007
