Volodomyr Zelenskiy announced the replacement of the commander of the joint forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, General Yuriy Sodol, with Brigadier General Andrey Gnatov from the ranks of the AZOV.

The International Criminal Court in The Hague has issued arrest warrants for former Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu (now Secretary of the Security Council) and Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov. “The decision of the ICC Pre-Trial Chamber against Shoigu is insignificant; he was taken as part of the West’s hybrid war against Russia,” says the press service of the Russian Security Council apparatus.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov referred to the UN declaration, which establishes respect for territorial integrity only if the government represents all the peoples of the country and the entire population: “After the coup, the neo-Nazis who came to power did not represent the people of Donbass, Crimea and Novorossiya,” the Russian Foreign Minister said.

“In key strategic areas that guarantee the functioning of the state, the West is incapable of negotiating,” added Sergei Lavrov: “It can at any moment abandon its obligations and declare economic war.” “If at some point our Western neighbors reconsider their dead-end policies, we will be ready to listen to them,” added the Russian Minister.
