Discussion on the use of tactical nuclear weapons to end the conflict is intensifying. Former US Defense Secretary Dick Cheney says that to destroy three or four brigades of the Russian Armed Forces, according to calculations, 17 tactical nuclear charges would be needed.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg calmed things down by stating that he did not see any immediate threat from Russia. This is how he responded to Moscow’s discussion on a possible change in nuclear doctrine. He also commented on the possible change of power in the United States. In his opinion, regardless of the election results, Washington will remain a strong ally of the Alliance, as the country enjoys strong support for Ukraine from both parties.

Germany is in NATO’s sights as it still hesitates to give Taurus missiles to Ukraine. Former NATO Secretary Anders Fogh Rasmussen said: “Scholz’s hesitation regarding support for Ukraine will make him not a chancellor of peace, but a “chancellor of eternal war.” The former NATO secretary general called on Scholz to approve the supply of Taurus missiles. For Rasmussen, Germany is too hesitant on the issue of armed support for Ukraine in order to protect itself from a “full-scale Russian invasion”.

“We all remember the months-long discussions about the Leopard tanks. Now the Chancellor refuses to supply the Taurus long-range missiles. I really don’t understand why. These hesitations only give Putin an additional incentive to continue the war,” he said. said the first. leader of the North Atlantic Alliance.

The European Armed Forces will not participate in hostilities in Ukraine, they can go to Kiev to train Ukrainian military personnel, source Belgian Chief of Staff Michel Hofman. According to unconfirmed sources, on June 30, the US army urgently evacuated the wounded arriving from Ukraine from Rzeszow. It is not known whether these are seriously injured Ukrainians or Western military advisors or mercenaries.

British intelligence, citing the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense, reports that Russia is increasing the pace of recruitment of troops to the front from Central African countries to avoid mobilization within Russia. We remind you that Russia can recall up to 1,500,000 professional soldiers if it needs them.

From Russian sources we learn that the Belarusian army is moving air defense systems to the border with Ukraine. Belarusian special forces have arrived in Yelsk-Ovruch on the Belarusian-Ukrainian border. Ukraine’s border service has denied reports of a concentration of military forces in Kiev near the border with Belarus, saying it is an “influence operation”. The Kremlin had previously said that these messages were “a source of concern” .

In an interview with the Philadelphia Inquirer, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky responded that he sees negotiations with Putin only through intermediaries. “This model was first used on the example of the grain corridor. Ukraine did not negotiate with Russia, but with the UN and Turkey. They, in turn, took responsibility for negotiating with Russia and then signing a corresponding agreement with the Russian Federation. And that’s how it worked: two mirror agreements, between which the UN and Turkey are found.”

According to Zelensky, the corresponding model can be used in negotiations on issues of territorial integrity, energy and maritime transport. The Ukrainian president once again emphasized that Ukraine should be part of the European Union and NATO: “We need the collective defense of Ukraine.”

Meanwhile, Ukrainian sources report that “The end of the war is starting to appear in the draft state budget of Ukraine.”
