06:46 – Severodonetsk, slow evacuation continues after bombing

Ukrainian authorities said they are continuing to evacuate civilians from Severodonetsk at all times of calm after the destruction of the three main bridges outside the eastern city due to Russian bombing. As the fight for control of the city intensified, local authorities said they still had ways to evacuate people, although it was not immediately clear what path the Ukrainian military was taking. Roads to the city are rather difficult, but they are there, Oleksandr Struik, head of the Severdonesk military administration, told Ukrainian television, adding that evacuations happen every minute when there is silence or when there is a possibility of transportation.

04:45 – Here is the list of weapons Ukraine needs: a thousand guns and a drone

(By Giuseppe Sarsina, Washington correspondent)
The Contact Group for Ukraine, made up of defense ministers from 47 countries, is meeting today, Wednesday, June 15 in Brussels. At the same time, the summit of defense ministers of the 30 NATO countries is being held. Yesterday, Tuesday 14, Volodymyr Zelensky’s closest advisor on Twitter noted the needs of the Ukrainian resistance. The Ministry of Defense announced that 60 MLRs (Multiple Launch Missile System, American-made) long rocket launchers are needed to prevent the advance of the Russians into the Donbass; With 40 they will continue to advance. For now, Ukrainians still point out that the US and UK have promised a handful. Mykhaylo Podoliak, Zelensky’s advisor, posted on Twitter the list of ingredients to win the war.
Here they are: 1,000 Hofitzer rifles, 155 mm caliber; 300 ml 500 tanks 2000 armored vehicles; 1000 drones. He concluded: Today the contact group meets. Expect a response. But Podolak’s expectations are likely to be disappointed. His list is very ambitious. However, it is true that today’s double designation should give some tangible indications. The Ukrainians will lose ground in the Donbass, and most of all, they will have a shortage of ammunition. The first step will touch, once again, US Secretary of Defense, Lloyd Austin, founder of the Contact Group. In Washington, suspicion began to spread even within the administration, which the New York Times regularly intercepted. How long will Zelensky bear the brunt of the Russians? Officially, however, the line does not change. Joe Biden has repeated it in recent days. Under Secretary of Defense Colin H. They will decide. The logical conclusion, then, is that the United States and the West in general should provide Zelensky with the necessary weapons if not to win the war, as Podolyak would like, at least so as not to overwhelm them.

02:2001:41 – Biden will build border silos for Ukraine’s grain exports: US intelligence, war reaches critical stage

The United States will build temporary silos on the border with Ukraine to facilitate the export of Ukrainian wheat to the world, which has now been banned due to the conflict with Russia. We will build silos, temporary silos on the borders of Ukraine, including Poland, announced by Joe Biden, speaking in Philadelphia. So we can get (grain) from those cars to silos to European silos to take it across the ocean around the world. He stressed that it takes time. Here’s the wheat crisis and the real dangers to Europe, in Melina Gabanelli’s Dataroom.

The war in Ukraine has reached a decisive stage that could determine the long-term outcome of the conflict. Several sources close to US and Western intelligence, according to CNN, also show how this crucial moment could force a difficult decision on the part of Western governments, which have so far provided support to Ukraine at an ever-increasing cost to their economies and national arms stockpiles. According to a senior US defense official, Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin will be ready to lead a working group of about 50 countries to discuss the crisis. I think it’s about to get to the point where one side or the other will succeed – said a senior NATO official – either the Russians will get to Sloviansk and Kramatorsk or the Ukrainians will stop them here. And if the Ukrainians can hold out here, in the face of such a number of troops, it will be significant. But at what stage is the war?
