After a surprise visit to Moscow, Naftali Bennett wants to discuss the Ukraine conflict with President Olaf Scholz (SPD) in Berlin today. Israeli sources say Bennett talked for several hours with Russian President Vladimir Putin about the war. He then summoned Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zhelensky and coordinated with the United States and France. According to media reports, a few days ago, Selenskyj asked Bennett to arrange talks between Russia and Ukraine in Israel. Israel has good relations with both countries. According to Bennett’s office, Israeli Housing Minister Siev Elkin was also present at the meeting with Putin. Elkin comes from the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv and is considered an expert by Putin. Ahead of the news of Bennett’s trip to Moscow, it was said that there could be new direct talks between the warring parties this weekend or Monday.
The ceasefire was not observed – the expulsion of Mariupol and Volnovacha failed
In fact, tens of thousands of civilians will be able to flee the Ukrainian cities of Mariupol and Volnovocha during the ceasefire agreed on Saturday. But Russia and Ukraine have been blaming each other for violating the ceasefire agreement. Later, Russia officially announced that it had resumed attacks on Mariupol and Volnovoka. According to Ukrainian sources, more than 200,000 people wanted to leave Mariupol during the agreed ceasefire. Accordingly, 15,000 civilians wanted to leave Volnovacha. According to the Ukrainian military administration, only a few hundred people were able to leave the city. Russia has continued its offensive in several areas, including the capital Kiev and the Kharkiv metropolis.
So far 351 civilians have died in the war, according to the United Nations. According to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), at least 707 civilians have been injured. According to the OHCHR, the actual number of victims may be “significantly higher”.
ARD and ZDF temporarily suspend reporting from Moscow
ARD and ZDF were formed after the passage of the new Russian Media Act Report from their Moscow studio for now. A spokesman for the WDR said the two public broadcasters were examining the implications of the law. Broadcasters will continue to provide detailed information on what is happening in Russia and Ukraine from their other locations. Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday passed a number of laws restricting freedom of expression. Accordingly, he faces up to 15 years in prison for spreading alleged “false information” about the Russian armed forces. Following this, many international media outlets announced that they would suspend their operations in the country, in whole or in part.
In the current context, information on war, shelling and casualties by the official bodies of the Russian and Ukrainian conflict parties cannot be verified directly by an independent body.
