War in Ukraine: Recent Developments

#War #Ukraine #Developments

Here are the latest developments in the war in Ukraine:

– “Urgent” inspection of the nuclear power plant –

NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg says it is “urgent” for the International Atomic Energy Agency to be allowed to inspect Ukraine’s Zaporizhia nuclear power plant, which is under Russian military control.

Speaking of the danger of a “nuclear accident or incident,” he told reporters in Brussels that Moscow’s military control over the facility “endangers the people of Ukraine, neighboring countries and the international community.”

Russian troops captured the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine in March shortly after the invasion.

The facility is the largest in Europe, and the uncertainty surrounding it during the war has fueled fears of a nuclear accident to rival that of Chernobyl in 1986, when a reactor exploded.

Russia and Ukraine have accused each other of shelling the facility.

– UN chief visits Ukraine –

The situation at the plant is expected to be on the agenda when UN chief Antonio Guterres holds talks with President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan in Lviv, western Ukraine, on Thursday.

The three will discuss “the need for a political solution to this conflict,” says UN spokesman Stéphane Dujarric.

Ukraine and Russia, two of the world’s largest grain exporters, last month agreed a deal brokered by the UN and Turkey to unblock grain shipments from the Black Sea following the Russian invasion.

– The Crimean bridge should be “dismantled” –

Ukraine’s presidential aide Mykhaylo Podolyak is calling for Moscow’s main bridge linking Kremlin-controlled Crimea to mainland Russia to be “dismantled” after multiple attacks on the peninsula.

The 19-kilometer bridge, inaugurated by Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2018, is Moscow’s main military and civilian land corridor to the peninsula it annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

It “must therefore be dismantled. No matter how – voluntarily or not,” Podolyak says on social media, hinting that the Kerch Bridge could become a military target for Ukrainian forces.

Russian military installations on the peninsula were recently rocked by explosions, with the Russian Defense Ministry blaming an attack this week on an act of “sabotage”.

Ukraine has not publicly claimed responsibility for the attacks that led to the blasts, but politicians and the military have poked fun at the incidents online, suggesting that Ukrainian forces were involved.
