This afternoon, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced $820 million in additional security assistance for Ukraine. This includes an authorization of a Presidential Drawdown of security assistance valued at up to $50 million, as well as $770 million in Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI) funds.

A German journalist living in eastern Ukraine’s Donbas region has been criminally charged by the German government for interviewing Ukrainian citizens and reporting her findings.

Independent reporter, 28-year-old Alina Lipp, moved to the Donbas area six months ago, where she transmits first-hand information to her audience in German, Russian, and English from her telegram channel.

In her weekly briefing, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Zakharova asks the “gentlemen of Brussels and Lithuania” if Russia’s understanding is correct that “you have unleashed a war?” Why does she have to ask the question? Why not make a declarative statement? https://mid.ru/ru/foreign_policy/news/1819949/
