news of the day

At least 19 people were killed in strikes on buildings in the Odessa region of southern Ukraine, according to kyiv.

During the night from Thursday to Friday, two missiles were fired by a "strategic aircraft" from the Black Sea, hitting buildings, according to the Ukrainian emergency services.

In addition to the dead, there are “38 wounded, including six children,” said Serguiï Krouk, head of the National Emergency Service of Ukraine, in a provisional report.

sentence of the day

"The Russian side, which speaks again of collateral damage, is inhumane and cynical"

The German government, through its spokesman Steffen Hebestreit, strongly condemned the Russian bombardment of Odessa.

"This shows us once again in a cruel way that the Russian aggressor deliberately accepts the death of civilians", he affirmed Hebestreit calling on the "Russian population (to) finally face this truth".

In the Kremlin, the spokesman Dmitry Peskov, questioned on the subject, assured that "the armed forces of Russia do not operate on civilian targets" in Ukraine.

The number of the day

10 billion.

This is the amount in Norwegian crowns (970 million euros) of the donation promised by Oslo to Ukraine, during a visit to the country by its Prime Minister Jonas Gahr Støre.

Spread over two years, this donation should be used for “humanitarian aid, the reconstruction of the country, arms and support for the functioning of the authorities” Ukrainian, indicates the Norwegian government in a press release.

The trend of the day

Battle over a dish.

Unesco has decided to include Ukrainian borsch on the list of its intangible world heritage, considering that the war threatened the "viability" of this traditional dish.

"The existence of this soup in itself is certainly not in danger in itself, but it is the human and living heritage associated with borsch which is in immediate danger because the ability of populations to practice, to pass on their intangible cultural heritage is seriously disrupted because of the armed conflict, in particular because of the forced displacement of the communities", explained the rapporteur of the evaluation committee of the Ukrainian file.

"Victory is ours in the borsch war," rejoiced Ukrainian Culture Minister Oleksandr Tkatchenko, just after UNESCO's decision to include this traditional dish in the intangible cultural heritage of humanity.

On the other hand, the decision goes much worse on the Russian side.

“If there is a need to explain to the world what contemporary Kievan nationalism is, I will mention this fact: hummus and rice pilaf are recognized as the national dishes of several countries.

But, as I understand it, Ukrainianization applies to everything.

What will it be next?

Pigs will be recognized as a Ukrainian national product?
