What is today?

Key points.

"The Russian occupiers cannot subdue us. They don't have such strength, they don't have such a spirit. They are based only on violence. Only on terror. Only on weapons, of which they have many. But the occupiers have no natural basis for a normal life. So that people can feel happiness and dream.

They are organically incapable of making life normal! Wherever Russia has come to a foreign land, dreams are impossible," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said in his video address.

Zelenskyy also said that he had signed decrees awarding 106 servicemen with state awards, 17 of them posthumously. Among them is the first woman-hero of Ukraine, who was posthumously awarded the title.

Nuclear energy 

The head of the IAEA spoke with the head of Rosatom, who said that Russia doesn't plan to take full and permanent control of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant. You can't trust the occupiers! They already keep ZNPP under their control and use the station as a military base.

The IAEA President states that the situation at the Zaporizhzhia and Chornobyl nuclear power plants contradicts the principle of safety.

Belarusian journalists report that fires have started in the Chornobyl zone. According to them, there are now four fires, the area of which is increasing. Rescuers cannot reach the fire because of the occupiers.

Chemical threat

Russia's use of chemical weapons in Ukraine could force NATO to reconsider its decision not to intervene in the conflict militarily, said Polish President Andrzej Duda.

The Hill: "US and Ukrainian officials are preparing for Russia's possible chemical attack." Although the Pentagon said through spokesperson John Kirby on Sunday that it saw no sign of an "imminent chemical or bio-attack right now," preparations are underway. If such an attack by Russia takes place, according to White House National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan, "the consequences will be serious for Moscow," he added, adding that the United States had reported the threat "directly to the Russians."

Close the sky!

Reznikov called for closing the skies over Ukraine due to the attack on the Yavoriv test site. "This is a new terrorist attack on peace and security near the EU-NATO border. Steps must be taken to stop this. Close the skies," he said.

Deputy Head of The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Olena Kondratiuk addressed her Western partners: "Children of Ukraine ask to close the sky! International leaders, listen to our children! We will shout and show all the videos until we are heard!

European Foreign Minister Josep Borrell repeated that the West could not close the skies over Ukraine, as it would mean readiness to open fire on Russian planes and threaten the outbreak of World War III. According to him, the EU is "at the limit" to help Kyiv, but we should not expect an immediate effect of sanctions against Moscow; they are designed to weaken the economy and "will cost Russia dearly."

So far, the sluggishness of the West is costly for Ukraine. How many more victims are needed to finally be heard?!
