Russia has made Belarus its "nuclear hostage," kyiv said Sunday, the day after President Vladimir Putin announced the deployment of tactical nuclear weapons on his ally's territory.

"The Kremlin has taken Belarus as a nuclear hostage," the secretary of the Ukrainian Security and Defense Council, Oleksii Danilov, wrote on Twitter, considering the decision "a step towards the internal destabilization of the country."

Putin said on Saturday that he had "agreed" with Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko to position tactical nuclear weapons in Belarus.

Lukashenko, in power for nearly 30 years, is a major Russian ally, and in February 2022 he allowed the Kremlin to use his territory to invade neighboring Ukraine.

Since then there have been fears that Belarus would join the offensive in Ukraine, but Lukashenko replied that he would only do so if his country is attacked.

According to Danilov, the announcement made by the Russian president "maximizes the level of negative perception" of Putin and Moscow "among Belarusian society."

Ukraine fears for the future of one of its most important nature reserves

The future of one of the best-known nature reserves in Ukraine, the "Askania-Nova", with 110 square kilometers of virgin steppe, is in danger due to the Russian invasion and the specialized personnel who take care of it feel "under threat". .

The reserve, located in the partially occupied area of ​​Yerson, employs a number of researchers and houses a large zoo that attracted some 140,000 visitors annually before the Russian invasion.

Its semi-wild animals, like the rare Przewalski horses, rely on the support of skilled personnel who managed to keep working even after the area fell under Russian control on the first day of the invasion more than a year ago. 

However, the Ukrainian administration can no longer guarantee further preservation of the reserve and it is "under immediate threat", according to an official statement.

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused NATO on Thursday of trying to create a global axis in the image and likeness of Nazi Germany with Italy and Japan in the 1930s, an alliance that led to World War II.

"What does the United States do? They create new and new alliances, which gives arguments to Western analysts to talk about the West building new axes," Putin said in statements to public television.

He recalled that, according to the new allied conception approved in 2022, NATO intends to "develop relations with the countries of the Asia-Pacific region", which would include New Zealand, Australia and South Korea.

"And they claim that they will create a global NATO. But what is this? At the beginning of the year the United Kingdom and Japan, if I am not mistaken, signed an agreement (...) to establish contacts and develop ties in the military field," he claimed.

For all these reasons, "Western analysts and not us say that the West is beginning to build a new axis similar to the one created in the 1930s by the fascist regimes in Germany, Italy and militaristic Japan."

At the same time, Putin denied that Russia and China are forging a "military alliance", although he acknowledged that there is cooperation in the military-technical field.

"We do not hide it. It is all transparent, there is nothing secret (...), we hold military exercises. By the way, not only with China, but also with other countries we continue to do them despite the events in Donbas, Zaporozhia and Kherson ", he pointed.

Lula da Silva, who was scheduled to travel to China this weekend for a multi-day tour that eventually had to be canceled due to pneumonia.

"Brazil thinks in a different way: we condemn the invasion of Ukraine and the annexation of its provinces," said the foreign minister, who pointed out that his country is committed to "direct and indirect dialogue between the parties" and is willing to contribute to the peace effort.

Putin anuncia acuerdo para desplegar armamento nuclear táctico en Bielorrusia

El presidente ruso, Vladímir Putin, anunció hoy un acuerdo con Bielorrusia para el despliegue de armas nucleares tácticas en territorio de ese país, que comparte frontera con Ucrania.

Putin aseguró a la televisión pública que dicho acuerdo no viola los tratados de desarme existentes y que el 1 de julio habrá concluido la construcción de un silo para emplazar dicho armamento en el vecino país.

Aunque, a renglón seguido, Putin recordó que el presidente bielorruso, Alexandr Lukashenko, había solicitado hace mucho tiempo el despliegue de ese tipo de armamento en suelo de la antigua república soviética.

El dilema de Putin ante la amenaza de arresto

(Gavriil Grigorov, Sputnik, Kremlin via AP)

El presidente ruso, Vladímir Putin, afronta un serio dilema tras la orden de arresto emitida por la Corte Penal Internacional (CPI), que le impide viajar, teóricamente, a más de la mitad de los países del mundo.

"Incluso el espacio postsoviético ha dejado de ser un lugar seguro" para Putin, comentó una fuente del Kremlin al diario digital Meduza. Putin tendrá que hilar muy fino a partir de ahora, ya que 123 países han firmado el Estatuto de Roma, el tratado fundacional del CPI, y otra treintena lo han suscrito, pero no lo han ratificado.

Desde el comienzo de la campaña militar rusa en Ucrania, el líder ruso ha sido muy cuidadoso con sus viajes al exterior. De hecho, Irán es el único país al que ha viajado fuera de la postsoviética Comunidad de Estados Independientes (CEI).

La administración presidencial reconoció a Meduza que la decisión fue un "paso inesperado" para el que el Kremlin no estaba preparado. Por eso, la reacción ha sido tan furibunda.

Los ucranianos eligen un consejo para evitar la corrupción en el ejército

Los ciudadanos ucranianos eligieron el viernes por sufragio universal en unas elecciones inéditas la composición de un nuevo órgano ciudadano formado por representantes de la sociedad civil que tiene como misión garantizar la transparencia de los procesos de adquisiciones en el ejército.

Pues debes participar en la elección de candidatos para el Consejo Ciudadano Anticorrupción del Ministerio de Defensa de Ucrania”, escribió en su página de Facebook la ONG Stop Corrupción (StopKor), una de las que presentaban candidatos a los comicios.

La expresión “huevos a 17 grivnas” se hizo viral en Ucrania después de que una investigación de la publicación ucraniana revelara el pasado mes de enero la existencia de una red de corrupción formada por empresarios y militares que aplicaban sobreprecios en la compra de alimentos para los soldados.

El Reino Unido cree que la ofensiva rusa sobre Bajmut se ha "estancado"

La ofensiva de Rusia sobre la ciudad ucraniana de Bajmut "se ha estancado en gran medida" como consecuencia del "desgaste extremo" de las fuerzas rusas, a juicio del Gobierno británico.

"El asalto de Rusia sobre la ciudad del Donbás de Bajmut se ha estancado en gran medida. Esto es probablemente resultado, en primer lugar, del extremo desgaste de las fuerzas rusas. Ucrania también ha sufrido grandes pérdidas durante su defensa", señaló el Ministerio británico de Defensa en su parte bélico diario.
