According to the US, Russia may try to annex parts of eastern Ukraine as early as May. To this end, Russia plans to hold „sham referendums” in Donetsk and Luhansk. Ukraine accuses Moscow of kidnapping its citizens from the occupied territories.

According to US estimates, Russia plans to annex large parts of eastern Ukraine in May and recognize Cherson, located in southern Ukraine, as an independent republic.

Michael Carpenter, US ambassador to the Organization for Security and Cooperation, said the US and others had information that Moscow was planning „mock referendums” in the so-called People’s Republics of Donetsk and Luhansk, which would see the territories annexed to Russia. in Europe (OSCE).

There are also indications that Russia will organize an independence vote in Kherson. With such referendums, Carpenter said, the Kremlin may be trying to democratize its actions. The expected approach from the United States came „straight from the Kremlin’s tactics manual”.

It seems that the Internet in Kherson is under Russian control

In addition, it is now said that the Internet in Cherson is under Russian control. “Someone must have activated a line from Crimea to Kherson,” said Doug Madhuri, director of internet analytics at Kentik. He described the development as „frighteningly similar” to what happened after Russia’s annexation of Ukraine’s Crimea in 2014.

London-based NetBlocks, which documents worldwide internet blackouts, like Madory reported that internet traffic in the Kherson region had been rerouted through Russia’s state-controlled telecom operator Rostelecom as of Sunday evening after a one-day outage. .

The situation in Mariupol is a „complete disaster”

In the disputed city of Mariupol for weeks, the city council announced another attempt to evacuate civilians from the Azovstal steel plant. The rescue failed on Monday. According to Ukrainian sources, there are still about 200 civilians staying there with the soldiers. According to the mayor of Mariupol, Adam Boychenko, there are still about 100,000 civilians in the city.

According to Doctors Without Borders, the humanitarian situation in Mariupol is catastrophic. “From the information we have so far, it can be said with certainty: it is a complete disaster,” the organization’s emergency coordinator in Ukraine, Anya Walls, told Funk Media Group newspapers.

Only in the future will the true extent of human suffering in the besieged city become clear. „I don’t think we have any idea what we’ll see there,” Walls said. „Bocha, Irben, and Hostomil are just the tip of the iceberg.” Hundreds of bodies were found in the cities of Bucha, Irbin, Borodinka, and Hostomil after the withdrawal of Russian forces.

There is no medical care in Mariupol

Wells emphasized that there are currently hardly any ways to provide medical care to the residents of the closed city. “It is almost impossible at the moment to bring relief supplies to Mariupol,” Walls said. Although there are volunteers smuggling medicines into the city, these are very small amounts of medicine.

In addition, there is a shortage of medical staff to provide medical care to the population in Mariupol. „Operations cannot take place. The people are there alone.” This also applies to other combat zones in the country.

Ukraine reports missile attack on Odessa

A missile attack hit the Black Sea port city of Odessa on Monday evening, Ukrainian sources reported. Maxim Marchenko, the governor of the Odessa region in southwestern Ukraine, wrote to Telegram that there were dead and wounded. He did not provide any information on the number of people affected.

Regarding the situation in the fighting on the ground in eastern Ukraine, the US Department of Defense announced that the Russian army is making little progress. „Forces continue to suffer from poor command and control, low morale in many units, and suboptimal logistics,” a Pentagon official said. For example, the Ukrainian army was able to push the Russians away from Kharkiv.

Ukraine accuses Russia of kidnapping

Russia said it has brought nearly 1.1 million people to Russia from the disputed areas of Ukraine. Colonel-General Mikhail Mizenzio said in Moscow that nearly 200,000 of them were children. On Monday alone, 11,500 people, including 1,850 children, were brought to Russia, Interfax quoted him as saying.

According to the Russian version, these people from Ukraine were taken to safety after the alleged fighting and violence by the Kyiv leadership. Alleged refugees from the breakaway republics of Donetsk and Luhansk in eastern Ukraine were transferred to Russia even before the Russian offensive on February 24.

Ukraine considers this a deportation of its own citizens from the areas currently occupied by Russia in the east and south. According to sources in Kyiv, the Russian army does not allow people to flee to the territory under Ukrainian control. The Ukrainian Security Council accused Russia of kidnapping children and using them for propaganda purposes.

Fears the general mobilization of Russia

In Ukraine, there is growing concern that Russian attacks will escalate dramatically in the coming weeks. Several Ukrainian media have picked up a CNN report on speculation that Kremlin President Vladimir Putin may declare a state of war in Russia and order a general mobilization within a few days. The head of the Ukrainian Military Intelligence, Kirillo Budanov, also spoke about Russian preparations for an open mobilization of soldiers and reservists. There is no evidence for this.

The Kremlin did not initially respond to the latest rumors. In the first weeks after the start of the war, Moscow commented on the concerns of its residents and maintained that a general mobilization was not planned.

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.
