Ukraine, Kyiv: Italy’s support is important, we are waiting for Meloni and the Pope to visit – Europe

More Russian missiles, more rubble, more civilian deaths in the horror of war. Deadly rain has again fallen across Ukraine, with air raid warnings issued in the morning and afternoon in every state, including the Kyiv region and the capital. An attack from the sky does not spare men, women and children, and destroys a condominium in the city of Dnipro: no less than nine dead, including a 15-year-old girl, and 64 injured, including 12 children, the youngest of whom is only three years old. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky promised that there would be no mercy against Moscow’s “terrorism”: “The world must stop evil.” While Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba appealed to the G7 and the European Union to impose new sanctions that could “kill the Russian missile and drone industry”. This was the tenth large-scale missile attack, according to Ukrainian media: vital infrastructure and 28 residential buildings were hit in Kyiv, without causing any casualties. According to the head of the regional administration in Mykolaiv Vitaly Kim, 17 Russian bombers took off towards Ukraine. The alarm sounded in all regions, followed by a second wave of explosions in Kyiv and in all states of the country, including in the West. Although the Air Force intercepted 25 of the 38 Russian missiles, the strikes hit already destroyed strategic infrastructure and power grids, including in Lviv and Kharkiv, causing emergency blackouts in most areas. German Energy Minister Galushenko said there were “difficult days” on the energy front. As dramatic images of the ruins of the Dnipro complex cut in half spread on social media, Moldova denounced that “fragments of a missile fell on the territory” of the country. “This is the third case,” Chisinau recalls. Up front, the question of Solidar remains open, as the Kyiv army once again claims control of the city, denying Moscow’s claims to have occupied it. And Zelensky again asks the West for arms. Because Moscow’s “terrorism” cannot be stopped “on the battlefield in Ukraine,” the Ukrainian leader said. Which benefited from British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak’s commitment to supply Kyiv with the highly desirable Challenger 2 tanks, following Poland’s promise to supply Leopard tanks. The Ukrainian president praised the “strong support from the United Kingdom,” while the Russian embassy in London denounced Downing Street’s decision, saying: “It will lead to an escalation of hostilities in Ukraine and new victims.” And after the rumors in the Rivista Difesa according to which Italy gave the go-ahead for the supply of Samp / T anti-aircraft systems to Ukraine, the visit of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni to Kyiv is expected. “We’ve heard a lot of pro-Ukraine statements from you,” Andriy Yermak, the head of the Ukrainian president’s office, told SkyTG24. “I think Italy can be one of the countries that will lead Ukraine to victory.” On the diplomatic front, Turkey is again pressing for a negotiated solution. And if it fails to reach a more comprehensive peace agreement, Ankara has said it is ready to push for a “local ceasefire”. Ibrahim Kalin, a close adviser to President Erdogan, said that neither Russia nor Ukraine “are capable of achieving victory militarily.” From Kyiv “We appreciate all the peace initiatives, including those of the Pope,” Yermak said then, announcing that “the time has come for the Pope to visit Ukraine, thus giving a very clear signal that it is Russia that he should stop.” What started”. But the latest Russian attack certainly does not help to talk about a dialogue table. Nor do the tones come from Moscow, with the “dolphin” of President Vladimir Putin, Dmitry Medvedev, who viciously attacks Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida after his meeting with Joe Biden at the White House The two had warned the Kremlin against using atomic bombs.Kishida “should be ashamed, only the United States used them,” attacked Medvedev. “Such a shame can only be washed away by committing seppuku,” the Japanese ritual suicide.
