Status: 01.05.2022 18:03

According to the United Nations, an evacuation is underway to rescue civilians from the besieged steel mills in Mariupol. Ukrainian President Zelensky said about 100 civilians were on their way to Zaporizhia.

According to Ukrainian information, about 100 civilians were released from the Mariupol steel plants, which were besieged by Russian forces. People on their way to Zaporizhia in Ukraine, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky wrote on Twitter.

The Russian side confirmed that civilians left Mariupol and spoke of 80 people. Authorities in Mariupol now say the evacuation has been suspended. According to the information, the operation is scheduled to continue tomorrow morning.

„Very complicated site”

The United Nations said Thursday afternoon that an evacuation operation to save civilians from crucifixion had begun. Spokesman for the United Nations Emergency Relief Program, Saviano Abreu, said the operation is being carried out in cooperation with the International Committee of the Red Cross and coordinated with the Ukrainian and Russian authorities. The helpers could have arrived at the steel mills yesterday.

Abreu described the situation as very complicated and did not want to give any details about the operation. About 1,000 Ukrainian civilians and 2,000 fighters are suspected in the basement of the sprawling Azovstal steel plants. The site is the only place in the city that is not controlled by Russian forces.

The Ukrainian military reported several attacks

According to information from Kyiv, a number of people were killed in a Ukrainian attack on the headquarters of the Russian army in the city of Izyum. Among them are high-ranking officers, an adviser to Ukraine’s Interior Minister Anton Herashchenko, Telegram reported. The city of Isgom, with a population of 50,000, is located in eastern Ukraine. According to Ukrainian sources, Russian Chief of Staff Valery Gerasimov will also remain there to lead the Donbass offensive. It is said that the attack took place yesterday. There was no confirmation from Russia – not even that Gerasimov would remain in the region.

The Ukrainian side also claimed that it attacked Snake Island in the Black Sea. The island had already been occupied by the Russian army at the start of the war in February. It is located about 35 kilometers from the Ukrainian coast. The „South” command of the Ukrainian army said that the attack destroyed several air defense complexes and a communications unit. 42 Russian soldiers were killed. There is no Russian confirmation of the attack.

Conflicting parties as a source

In the current situation, no independent body can directly verify the information on the course of the war, bombing and casualties provided by the official bodies of the Russian and Ukrainian parties to the conflict.

New damage to Russian infrastructure

According to the Russian authorities, a fire broke out at a facility of the Russian Defense Ministry near the Ukrainian border. The region’s governor, Vyacheslav Gladkov, reported on Twitter that one person was slightly injured in the fire that broke out in the Belgorod region.

It is not clear whether the partial collapse of a railway bridge near the Russian-Ukrainian border in the Kursk region is related to the war. Governor Roman Starovit wrote in Telegram that specialists are currently determining the cause. No one is hurt. The Soga region is located in western Russia, where the bridge connects the town of the same name with the town of Sosnovy Bor, on the border of the Sumy region in northeastern Ukraine, from which the Russian armed forces withdrew. It is not yet clear if there is a connection to the war in the neighboring country. Recently, Russia has repeatedly accused Ukraine of launching attacks on its territory. The Russian authorities raised the alert level in the region due to the „threat of terrorism”.

Russia confirms attacks in the south and east

Russia has confirmed renewed attacks on neighboring eastern and southern Ukraine. Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said in Moscow that in the Zaporizhia region, the S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems were destroyed. Two fighter planes were shot down in the Kharkiv region. The Ukrainian side, in turn, spoke of several casualties as a result of the Russian attacks on Kharkiv. Konashenkov also confirmed an attack on an airport in the Black Sea city of Odessa. The runway was destroyed by missiles, as was a hangar where weapons delivered from the United States and Europe were stored.

Zelensky appeals to the Russian army

According to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, Russia is strengthening its armed forces in the east of the country. „Russia is gathering additional forces to launch new attacks against our army in the east of the country,” Zelensky said in his regular video address. Russia is trying to increase military pressure in the Donbass. He appealed to the Russian army: „Any Russian soldier can save his life. It is better for you to survive in Russia than to die in our country.”

According to Ukrainian figures, 23,000 Russian soldiers have been killed in Ukraine since the beginning of the war. In addition, more than 1,000 Russian tanks and about 2,500 other military vehicles have already been destroyed, Zelensky said in his video address. It is difficult to estimate the actual military casualties. Moscow has so far admitted the fall of more than 1,000 soldiers, and estimates the death toll of Ukrainian fighters at more than 23,000.

According to Unian, Ukrainian presidential advisor Oleksiy Aristovich reported that no troop movements from Russia towards Ukraine have been observed for four days. On the other hand, „a large number of broken equipment, wounded and dead” will be returned to Russia.

Martyred in attacks on villages in Kherson

According to Russian sources, Ukrainian forces bombed villages in the Kherson region. The Russian news agency (RIA) reported that civilians were killed and wounded, referring to the Russian Defense Ministry. The ministry said that Ukrainian forces bombed a school, a kindergarten and a cemetery in the villages of Kiselivka and Shiroka Balka. He did not indicate the time of the attack or the number of dead and wounded. Ukraine has not yet responded to the report. The information cannot be independently verified.

Ukraine and the United States agree to hand over weapons

According to Ukrainian sources, the Ukrainian and American militaries again agreed to deliver weapons, ammunition and other equipment. According to a phone call between Ukrainian Commander-in-Chief Valery Salushnyg and US Chief of Staff Mark Milly Salushnigg, the operation is constantly under strict control. He stressed that the Ukrainian army had to switch from Soviet equipment to NATO models. „The earlier we start this process, the sooner we complete it,” she said.

Forfeiture of company assets?

Russia says it is considering seizing assets from companies in „enemy” countries. Parliament Speaker Vyacheslav Volodin wrote on Telegram that this was a possible reaction to the announcement by the United States that it would transfer assets confiscated from the Russian oligarchs to Ukraine. Funds raised through the potential sale of assets should benefit the development of Russia.

It concerns „companies on the Russian territory whose owners are citizens of hostile states” in which the decision to expropriate was taken. Volodin accused „a certain number of hostile countries – Lithuania, Poland and even the United States” of committing „pure theft”.

Only agree to surrender: This is how Turkey blackmails the West in the NATO conflict – Politics

Published

on

Recep Zarakulu has been an enemy of the Turkish state for half a century. After the military coup of 1971, the 74-year-old appeared in court for the first time – due to contacts with Amnesty International.

Zarakulu later co-founded the Turkish Association for Human Rights and published books on the Armenian Genocide and the Kurdish Question as a publisher.

Today, he is on a list of 40 alleged „terrorists” whose extradition Turkey has made a condition of Finland and Sweden agreeing to NATO membership. The Zaracolo case shows why Turkey has so far been unable to convince the West of its demands.

[Alle aktuellen Nachrichten zum russischen Angriff auf die Ukraine bekommen Sie mit der Tagesspiegel-App live auf ihr Handy. Hier für Apple- und Android-Geräte herunterladen.]

Finnish and Swedish negotiators spoke for the first time about the NATO dispute with Turkish government officials in Ankara on Wednesday. Then Ibrahim Kalin, spokesman for the Turkish presidential office and advisor to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, spoke about the positive attitude of the Nordic countries towards Turkey’s demand to lift the arms embargo imposed since 2019.

But Turkey is not satisfied with that. She is asking for tangible proof from Helsinki and Stockholm that they are moving away from The Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK), which is run as a terrorist organization. They also insist on handing over opponents of the Turkish government.

Zaracolo has lived in Sweden for ten years

According to Ankara, 28 people in Sweden and 12 in Finland on the Turkish list are dangerous enemies of the state and can be attributed to the Kurdistan Workers’ Party, far-left groups or the movement of Islamic preacher Fethullah Gulen.

Foreign Minister Mevlüt Çavuşoğlu told the Haberturk news channel that Turkey does not want to hear excuses such as referring to EU rules. Turkey’s demands must be met — even if Finland and Sweden have to change their laws to allow for deliveries.

Zaracolo is watching developments from Sweden, where he has lived for nearly ten years. He told exiled radio station Ozguruz Radio that he did not believe he would be extradited.

Sweden’s highest court had refused to extradite him in 2019. Contrary to what is happening in Turkey, Zarakulu said, the government in Sweden has to abide by court decisions. Ankara might assume that the government in Stockholm can act like the Turkish government in its own country: by pressuring the judiciary to enforce its will.

Two years ago, I started new investigations

The Zaracolo case illustrates how far apart European countries and Turkey are in understanding the law. A human rights activist in Turkey should not be imprisoned for using or advocating violence.

He was convicted of giving a lecture at a legitimate Kurdish party. According to the Turkish judiciary, he was convicted of supporting a terrorist organization.

Two years ago, the Turkish Prosecutor General’s Office launched new investigations against him: In an article in the left-wing newspaper „Evrensel”, Zarakulu compared Erdogan to former Prime Minister Adnan Menderes, who was executed in 1961 after a military coup. . Prosecutors accused Zaracolo of calling for the article’s overturn to be violent.

Zarakulu said in the interview that there was no legal basis for extradition – after talks in Ankara on Wednesday, Erdogan’s advisor Kalin said the exact opposite: there is no legal basis for refusing to extradite „terrorists”.

There is also a deceased person on the list

Bulent Kenes, the former editor-in-chief of a newspaper affiliated with the Gülen movement, is also on Turkey’s extradition list. He is accused of involvement in the 2016 coup attempt. Another opponent of the government, Kurdish politician and journalist Mehmet Sirak Bilgin, is on Turkey’s extradition list but died seven years ago.

the list It could potentially serve as a bargaining chip in modern poker, which Ankara could give up in exchange for concessions. The most important thing for Turkey is to end the arms embargo imposed on European countries. Swedish Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson has made it clear that her country does not send weapons or money to terrorist organizations.

The Turkish government accuses Sweden of supporting the Kurdish People’s Protection Units (YPG) of the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) in Syria.

Erdogan’s veto threat prevents Finland and Sweden, which are seeking NATO protection because of Russia’s war against Ukraine, from easily joining NATO.

Turkey faces a lack of understanding on the part of its allies. Only Russia is benefiting from the conflict, the German ambassador to Turkey, Jürgen Schulz, said at a security conference in Istanbul. Christoph Heusgen, president of the Munich Security Conference, said at the event that Turkey could better solve its problems with Finland and Sweden after they joined NATO more than before.

Russia plans to put gas profits in Ukraine attack

Published

on

The export of gas and other fuels brings Russia several billions of additional revenue. Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said some of the money could be used in the Ukraine war.

Russia expects an additional income equivalent to 13.7 billion euros this year from the export of fossil fuels. „We expect up to an additional trillion rubles in oil and gas revenues,” Finance Minister Anton Siluanov said on state television on Friday, referring to the Economic Development Ministry’s latest forecast. Part of the extra income can be used to continue the Russian attack on Ukraine.

He said the government wanted to spend the extra revenue this year rather than putting it aside. The finance minister said the money should be spent on „additional payments” to pensioners, families with children and „special operation” in Ukraine, citing Russia’s war against Ukraine.

Gas and oil have so far been excluded from sanctions

The West has imposed a series of sanctions on Moscow to punish the Kremlin for sending troops to Ukraine. So far, Russian oil and gas supplies have been exempted from sanctions. Russia is currently reaping record revenues due to the high price of gas.
