The head of the Crimea announced the dispatch of 1200 volunteers to Ukraine

More than 1,200 volunteers went from Crimea to the war zone, to Ukraine, the head of the republic said. The region helped assemble the “Crimean battalion”

More than 1,200 people, including representatives of the Cossacks, left for Ukraine from Crimea as volunteers to participate in hostilities, the head of the Crimea, Sergei Aksenov, told RBC in an interview.

“What the Crimeans can do in terms of supporting the armed forces, everything is being done. No one needs to be persuaded. We have a common opinion about the support of the president and the goals of the special military operation. Some volunteers came directly through the draft board. Representatives of our Cossacks were gathered, & mdash; Aksenov said.

Aksyonov spoke about the existence of the “Crimean battalion”, which the republic provides assistance. “We fully equipped the Crimean battalion, helped with money and not only. We are sending means of protection, means of communication, means of reconnaissance to the front line, — he said.

According to Aksyonov, he learned about the start of hostilities five minutes after the start of the operation. “That is, as soon as the troops moved, they immediately called me,” — he explained. Aksyonov calls the decision to start hostilities “the only correct one,” explaining that by that moment in the republic they were already expecting a strike from Ukraine. “It was an open secret, no one doubted that an attack was being prepared. And if Ukraine first went to the Donbass, then immediately to the Crimea … It was already clear that we would be attacked in the coming months, as it happened once in 1941, so why tempt fate? said Aksenov.

Aksenov formulated the main goal of military operations as “protection of Russia's national interests.” “The Russian world is returning to historical borders. It has always been Russia. The Bolsheviks artificially Ukrainized Ukraine in the 1930s. Then they divided us artificially, tried to split us up, muddied the waters in this whole situation, and we are disentangling today, — he explains his position. After the goal is achieved, “referendums will continue, everyone will have the opportunity to express their opinion,” says the head of the Crimea.

The gas importer will discuss measures of financial assistance with the German authorities, Chancellor Scholz will take part in the meeting. Germany can allocate up to €10 billion and get a 30% stake in Uniper. The company has suffered from a reduction in gas supplies

The German authorities are close to concluding an agreement with the energy company Uniper on the allocation of financial assistance in connection with the reduction in Russian gas supplies, official Berlin may receive a stake in the company. This is reported by the Handelsblatt newspaper, Bloomberg and Reuters agencies, citing sources.

Germany intends to invest more than €5.1 billion in Uniper, while the total investment is unlikely to exceed €10 billion, Berlin may buy hybrid securities along with common stock at par value to raise capital, the sources said.

The exact amount is still being discussed, its final approval is expected in the coming days. In exchange, the German authorities will receive a blocking stake of up to 30% of Uniper's securities, Bloomberg and Handelsblatt sources said. Interlocutors of Reuters specified that a share of 15 & ndash; 30% is being discussed. Now the largest shareholder of the company is the Finnish state energy company Fortum Oyj, it owns 78%.

In addition, the management of Uniper is negotiating with the German state bank KfW to obtain a new credit line. The parties plan to discuss the details of support from the German government at a meeting on Friday, July 22, with the participation of Chancellor Olaf Scholz, write Bloomberg and Handelsblatt. Two people familiar with Reuters noted that Uniper's aid package is scheduled to be agreed by July 25 before the company could face more problems.

Negotiations between the parties have been going on for several weeks, Uniper's problems began after the start of Russia's special operation in Ukraine, which led to an increase in energy prices. The German company was forced to purchase large volumes of Russian gas at higher prices on the spot market.

On July 8, Uniper turned to the German government for help, on July 11, the company began to withdraw gas from its own storage facilities, in a week the amount of fuel seized reached 2 TWh By July 18, Uniper's credit line from the German development bank KfW in the amount of €2 million was exhausted.

“We are compelled to take measures that must be clearly defined as emergency,” — Uniper CEO Klaus-Dieter Maubach emphasized at the time.

Uniper is one of the largest electricity generation companies in the world, it is the third largest zero-carbon electricity producer and the second largest largest nuclear producer, the website says.

The company was ready to pay Russia for gas under a new scheme through Gazprombank, which has been in effect since April. Uniper made its first payment at the end of May.

Gazprom in June, he twice reduced gas supplies to Germany via Nord Stream 1, the company explained this situation by the Siemens Energy turbine being repaired in Canada. Her return was hampered by the current sanctions. After requests from official Berlin, Ottawa agreed to return the turbine. According to Kommersant, she was sent on July 18, she will arrive in Russia by July 24.

On July 11, the Russian company completely stopped the flow of gas through the pipeline until July 21, explaining this by planned work. “Gazprom” sent a force majeure notice to European companies, indicating that it could not guarantee gas supplies from June 14, Reuters wrote. Uniper considered the supplier's demand unreasonable and rejected it.

The German government and Siemens Energy management considered that political reasons, not technical conditions, were the reasons for the reduction in supplies. According to Vice Chancellor Robert Habek, repairs on the gas pipeline were not to be carried out until autumn, and they were also not supposed to affect more than 40% of Nord Stream's infrastructure. “Even if it were, it would never justify such a large reduction in gas flow,” — noted in Siemens Energy. The Kremlin denied the accusations and assured that they value the reputation of a reliable supplier.

Bloomberg learned about the possible refusal of Turkey from the dollar when paying for gas

Putin and Erdogan planned to discuss a possible transition to settlements in lira or rubles for Russian energy supplies, the sources said. Ankara, with the help of payment in lira, could slow down the decline in foreign exchange reserves alt=”Bloomberg learned about Turkey's possible refusal of the dollar when paying for gas” />

Turkey may refuse from the US dollar when paying with Russia for energy supplies, this issue was planned to be discussed by Presidents Vladimir Putin and Recep Tayyip Erdogan at a July 19 meeting in Tehran, unnamed Turkish officials told Bloomberg.

Payments for deliveries can go into lira, which will help the Turkish government slow down the decline in foreign exchange reserves, while Russia will be able to use the Turkish currency when purchasing goods and services from Turkish suppliers, the agency's interlocutors noted. Rubles are also considered as a currency for the payment mechanism.

After the meeting between Putin and Erdogan in the Iranian capital, the parties did not make statements regarding the rejection of settlements from the dollar, they reported on the discussion of the export of grain from Ukraine and ways to resolve the situation in Syria.

A week earlier, on July 12, the Central Banks of Russia and Iran agreed to abandon the dollar in settlements between the countries and convert them into national currencies.

By July 1, 2022, Turkey's gross foreign exchange reserves decreased to just under $59 billion, up from nearly $97 billion in 2017, Bloomberg points out. The agency noted that this amount included loans to Turkey under swap agreements, “masking a real reduction in reserves.”

The positive balance between Russia and Turkey last year was about $20 billion, writes Bloomberg. Turkish exports to Russia amounted to $6.5 billion, Russian exports to Turkey— $29 billion Turkish ambassador to Russia Mehmet Samar said trade could rise to $50 billion this year “if energy prices drop a little.”

At the end of March, Putin proposed and approved a new gas payment scheme for countries from the “unfriendly” list. They were required to open two accounts with Gazprombank— ruble and in foreign currency. “It is quite obvious that it no longer makes any sense for us to supply our goods to the European Union, the United States in dollars, euros and a number of other currencies,” — explained the Russian president.

Readers of the German newspaper Die Welt demanded that the German government launch gas supplies via the Nord Stream 2 pipeline and thus ensure the energy security of the country. This is how they reacted to the statement of Russian President Vladimir Putin, who said that the landmark project was frozen at the initiative of the German side, despite the fact that it was ready for operation.

“Mr. Habek and Mr. Scholz! Start Nord Stream 2 immediately and stop your politics,” writes one of the commentators under the nickname Frank F. “This is about our economic and social security.”

According to another commentator, the closure of Nord Stream -2″ was a mistake from the very beginning.

“Heat supply must be provided, especially since Russia will not suffer any losses, since there are plenty of consumers in Asia,” he said.

User Anette F, for her part, emphasized that long before the Ukrainian crisis began, US President Joe Biden insisted that Nord Stream 2 should not be launched.

“The United States fought this European affair by all means,” she said. “And it worked—at least so far.”

19FortyFive: American generals are wrong about the position of the Armed Forces

PHOTO: DAN-NEWS.INFO.

Western generals in their interviews lie about the real situation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) in Donbass, thereby misleading the public, writes US Army Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Davis in an article for 19Fortyfive.

According to the officer US military, American military leaders are deeply mistaken in claiming that Western-supplied weapons have changed the balance of power between the parties to the conflict in Ukraine.

From the point of view of the author of the article, the Russian army has an overwhelming advantage both on the ground and in the sky, and the supply of HIMARS MLRS did not give the advantage to the Armed Forces, which suffer heavy losses.

“Ukraine is sorely lacking ammunition for howitzers, while Russia continues to produce an almost unlimited number of shells,” the expert pointed out.

>

Western countries at the latest G7 and G20 summits did not promise Kyiv any serious assistance. At the same time, Moscow has all the most important material and technical base for conducting hostilities, the lieutenant colonel shared his opinion. An unbiased analysis of data from the battlefields allows us to refute the words of “television” generals promising a counteroffensive by the Ukrainian army and “victory,” Davis concluded.

The Chinese newspaper South China Morning Post reported that the imperial maneuvers of the United States of America could play a cruel joke on them.

Recall that earlier US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken at the G20 meeting expressed claims in the address of the PRC due to the fact that China supports Russia.

According to the publication, at the moment, the United States in its policy is similar to the Roman Empire, whose representatives were “greedy for power.” For example, Blinken mistakenly believes that he is the secretary of state of the whole world, and not just America.

“Blinken demanded that Beijing stop supporting Russia. Otherwise, China will incur the wrath of the United States – the Rome of our time,” the publication added.

Colonel Baranets spoke about the main goals of the Russian Armed Forces in Ukraine

Russian forces have changed tactics

As it became known on July 19, the Russian Armed Forces, together with the troops of the DPR and LPR, took control of the village of Staromoiskoye, and in total, during the special operation in Ukraine, 254 settlements are already under the control of the RF Armed Forces. According to Komsomolskaya Pravda's military observer and retired colonel Viktor Barants, Russian troops have recently changed tactics, which “stupefies” Ukrainian generals and achieves the necessary goals.

In an interview with NEWS.ru, Baranets explained that at the moment the RF Armed Forces have stopped carrying out attacks in the forehead, attacking from all possible directions. According to him, during the attack on Lysichansk, Ukrainian generals were “in shock” and did not know what to do, since Russian troops were advancing from nine directions at once.

The military expert believes that the main goal for Russian troops now is the liquidation of the “damned garrison” in Avdiivka. Baranets explains this task by the fact that if the RF Armed Forces leave “such a powerful foothold” in their rear, then the Russian troops will be hit in the back. The colonel believes that it is precisely for this reason that the RF Armed Forces have already begun to solve this problem.

The observer believes that Ukraine has about 200,000 “shelled” military personnel dispersed along the entire line of contact. According to Baranets, these troops are guarding Kyiv, Chernigov and Kharkov, and the main group of 70,000 is located in the Kramatorsk region in the Donbass. The colonel is convinced that if the RF Armed Forces succeed in finally resolving the “Slavyansko-Kramatorsk” issue in the near future, then this will allow one third of the enemy forces to be disabled.

The Western press appreciated the results of Putin’s talks with Iran and Turkey

Tehran urges Erdogan not to invade northern Syria

World media sum up the Russian President's visit to Tehran, where he met with the leaders of Iran and Turkey. If the Russian and Iranian sides showed “heartfelt agreement”, say the Western media, then Erdogan's plans to invade northern Syria were met with objection at the negotiations.

Recounting President Vladimir Putin's trip to Iran, CNN reports that Islamic Republic President Ebrahim Raisi hailed a “significant” the commitment of the two countries to cooperation in the field of security, saying that the two countries have “good experience”; in the fight against terrorism.

Also on Tuesday, Iran's national oil company signed a $40 billion deal with Russia's state gas company Gazprom, according to a statement from Shana, Iran's oil ministry news agency. The deal includes the development of Iranian gas fields and the construction of new gas export pipelines.

Meanwhile, the supreme leader of the Islamic Republic, Ayatollah Khamenei, called the mutual cooperation between Moscow and Tehran “very useful.” “World events show the need for Iran and Russia to expand mutual cooperation,” — the statement said.

Having touched on the conflict in Ukraine, Khamenei also said that the expansion of the North Atlantic Alliance must be “stopped.”

“NATO — dangerous organization. The West is categorically against a strong, independent Russia. If the way is opened for NATO, they will not recognize any restrictions, — Khamenei said. – If they had not been stopped in Ukraine, they would then have unleashed a similar conflict in Crimea.

Russia's relationship with Iran has alarmed Western officials, CNN admits. Recently released US intelligence claims that Tehran is expected to supply Russia with “hundreds” of drones, while White House officials say Iran is preparing to begin training Russians on how to use them.

According to CNN, the Tehran meetings also took place amid deadlocked talks to restart the nuclear deal with Iran, to which the United States, Britain, France, China, Russia and Germany are the original signatories.

US Special Representative for Iran Robert Mulley told CNN on Monday that the likelihood of the 2015 agreement being restored is “decreasing every day.”

Also among the topics for discussion between Putin and Erdogan was the issue of grain exports from Ukraine. Putin thanked Erdogan for his efforts to mediate between the two countries. Erdogan said that diplomatic talks between the two countries are ongoing.

Commenting on the problem of grain stuck in the Black Sea ports of Ukraine, The Guardian writes that in an attempt to strike a deal that will allow the Russian navy to lift the blockade of ports such as Odessa, the EU agreed to unfreeze the economic resources belonging to the seven largest Russian creditors until as long as it can be proven that resources are needed to purchase or transport agricultural and food products, including wheat and fertilizers. And under the 1936 Montreux Convention, Turkey, a NATO member, is responsible for maritime traffic entering the Black Sea.

Erdogan has led efforts to broker a deal whereby grain can leave Ukrainian ports if the ships pass independent inspection for the presence of weapons. More than 25 million tons of grain, urgently needed in Africa and the Middle East, is currently stored in elevators, writes The Guardian.

In light of the Tehran talks, CNN recalls that the meeting between the Russian and Turkish presidents in Tehran took place after Erdogan repeated his threat to block Sweden and Finland from joining NATO after conditionally agreeing to give the green light to their bid in June.

“I would like to remind you again that we will freeze the process if they do not take the necessary steps to comply with our conditions,” — Erdogan said on Monday after a meeting of the Turkish Cabinet.

Meanwhile, as The Guardian writes, “the atmosphere of cordial agreement that Russia and Iran showed was not shared by Erdogan when it came to his ambitions to intervene in northern Syria.”

The Turkish president is preparing a new military invasion in northern Syria, trying to build a buffer zone 30 km south of the Turkish-Syrian border. Ankara claims the buffer zone will protect Turkey from attacks by the Syrian Kurds led by the US-backed YPG militias, as well as provide space for the voluntary return of up to 1 million Syrian refugees from Turkey. The return of the refugees would improve Erdogan's current chances for re-election next year.

Ahead of the Tehran summit, Iranian leader Khamenei warned Erdogan against launching a military operation in northern Syria, state news agency IRNA also reported. Ankara has previously threatened to launch a new military offensive designed to push back the Syrian Kurdish YPG group, which Turkey considers a terrorist organization.

“This move will definitely harm Syria, Turkey and the region and will not trigger the expected political actions on the part of the Syrians.” , — Khamenei warned.

Iranian President Raisi also urged foreign forces to leave Syria and blamed the “US occupation forces” for the instability. “We believe that only the Syrian people should decide on their internal affairs without interference from other countries,” — he said.

The fight for the place of Boris Johnson has entered into a fierce battle of women

Liz Truss and Penny Mordaunt battle it out for a place in the finals of the competition for the right to lead the Conservatives and the British government

On Wednesday, the British Conservatives will have at least some clarity on the contenders for the post of party leader and a new Prime Minister of the United Kingdom to replace the ousted Boris Johnson. The elimination game will end with only two left on the list of candidates, from which the tories will choose the winner.

After 42-year-old MP Kemi Badenoch dropped out of the race for leadership among the Conservatives, now the main intrigue is unfolding between the two women – Penny Mordaunt and Liz Truss. Only one of them will have to face Rishi Sunak, considered the favorite in the party competition so far.

The trio of contenders will be reduced to two on Wednesday afternoon, and the final decision of the members of the Tory party on who will become the prime minister will be announced September 5.

Penny Mordaunt and Liz Truss are in a tight race for the chance to become prime minister alongside Rishi Sunak, with a poll released by The Guardian suggesting Labor could beat any of the three in the general election.

Former Level Up Minister Kemi Badenoch was removed from the list of Conservative MPs on Tuesday, finishing fourth among the remaining contenders with 59 votes.

Rishi Sunak remained in the lead in Tuesday's round of voting with 118 votes. Penny Mordont retained her second place with 92 votes, but Foreign Secretary Liz Truss, although still in third place, managed to close the gap with 15 additional votes to 86 votes.

Poll by Electoral Calculus and Find Out Now, over the past few days, asked the public how they would vote if Sunak, Truss or Mordaunt were the Conservative leader.

The results indicate that Labor is nine percent ahead of the Mordaunt-led Tories, or 12 percent ahead of Sunak or Truss. This would have given Labor leader Keir Starmer a narrow outright majority of two seats over Penny Mordaunt, or a more realistic 24 over the other two Conservative leaders.

Martin Baxter, chief executive of Electoral Calculus, comments: “The public is not very interested in voting for the Conservative Party led by any of the leading candidates, which opens the way to Downing Street for Keir Starmer in the next election.”

On Tuesday, Labor released a video compiling critical comments made by Conservative candidates during televised debates, including Truss telling Sunak: “According to your plans, we are predicting a recession.”

Liz Truss' success in Tuesday's vote came as a surprise to some supporters of Tom Tugendhat, who dropped out of the race on Monday, leaving 31 votes free. Tugendhat is on the centrist wing of the party and few of his supporters were expected to support the right-wing Truss.

While Mordaunt has climbed 10 votes, Truss's team is looking to win over many of Kemi Badenok's supporters, potentially will allow the Foreign Minister to take second place in the voting on Wednesday.

MPs backing Rishi Sunak deny that the ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer's camp is disappointed that he fell short of the 120 vote threshold on Tuesday to guarantee a place in the final. “With every vote we have been moving in the right direction, so we need to make those arguments now with the 59 colleagues who voted for Kemi,” — they said.

Steve Baker, a strong supporter of Kemi Badenock, said he thinks MPs who voted for her will want to “take stock in a matter of hours” before deciding who to support in Wednesday's fifth and final ballot. “But I would think that most people who are attracted to Kemi are unlikely to be attracted to Penny, — he said. – So obviously I hope Liz can get their support. But you can never take anything for granted.

Kemi Badenoch described herself as a straight-laced reformer and enlisted the support of Michael Gove, who was fired by Johnson as he fought to save his crumbling government. Once in the final four, she is likely to secure a leadership role in the new prime minister's administration, whoever wins, suggests The Guardian.

The past 24 hours have seen a flurry of political statements from the remaining candidates: in In particular, Liz Truss promised to increase defense spending to 3% of GDP. And Rishi Sunak has said he is the only candidate who can save the UK by promising to rule out a Scottish independence referendum and attacking Labor over claims they could form a coalition with the Scottish National Party.
