news of the day

It's fighting in the east of Ukraine.

A "fierce" clash is underway towards Vougledar, the two sides said on Friday.

The head of the Russian occupation of the Ukrainian region of Donetsk, Denis Pushilin, indicated in the night "to wait for good news", while the Russian forces try to conquer this mining city, which had 15,000 inhabitants before the start of the war.

"The coming encirclement and liberation of the city will solve some things," Denis Pouchiline told the Ria Novosti agency, stressing that a victory would "change the balance of power on the front" by opening the way to an offensive towards the cities of Pokrovsk and Kourakhové, located further north.

sentence of the day

On the day of the liberation of the German Hitler death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, let us remember that Putin is building new camps in the east”

The sentence is signed Mateusz Morawiecki.

On his Facebook page, the Polish Prime Minister frontally accused Vladimir Putin of "building new concentration camps", on the occasion of the 78th anniversary of the liberation by the Red Army of the Nazi death camp of Auschwitz-Birkenau , the date on which the memory of the victims of the Holocaust is honored.

The leader is accustomed to statements hostile to Russia.

In particular, he reproached Emmanuel Macron in April 2022 for continuing to speak with Vladimir Poutine.

“No one negotiated with Hitler.

Would you negotiate with Hitler, with Stalin, with Pol Pot?

“, he had launched at the time.

Poland has been one of kyiv's main backers since the Russian invasion of Ukraine nearly a year ago.

Mateusz Morawiecki claims to have delivered more than "250 tanks" to Volodymyr Zelensky to fight against the Russians.

The number of the day

93.8 million euros.

This is the military aid package for kyiv released by Belgium.

"These include anti-aircraft missiles, anti-tank missiles, machine guns, grenades and many other military equipment that allow Ukraine to continue to defend itself against the invasion" Russian, detailed the Minister of Defense Ludivine Dedonder during a press conference on Friday.

On the other hand, the Belgians will not provide tanks and for good reason: they have not had any for about ten years.

The new Belgian Defense effort has been valued at 93.8 million euros, bringing the total of Belgian aid to almost 228 million since the start of the war in February 2022.

The trend

He took advantage of the international day of the victims of the Holocaust to submit a charge.

Vladimir Putin on Friday accused “neo-Nazis in Ukraine” of committing crimes against civilians, rhetoric the Russian president regularly uses to justify his military offensive.

“Forgetting the lessons of history leads to the repetition of terrible tragedies.

The proof of this is the crimes against civilians, the ethnic cleansing (and) the punitive actions organized by the neo-Nazis in Ukraine,” denounced the Russian president in a press release.

The answer was not long in coming, on the Ukrainian side.

“Today, as always, Ukraine honors the memory of the millions of victims of the Holocaust.

We know that together, indifference and hatred kill, ”retorted Volodymyr Zelensky in a message posted on social networks.
