Development of the situation in Russia and Ukraine: Russia demands to stop Ukraine from recruiting mercenaries in the United States, Ukraine obtains EU candidate member status


2022-06-24: [Chinese Article Link On June 24, Chinese news agency Beijing combined news: On June 23, Russia demanded that the United States immediately put an end to Ukraine's recruitment of mercenaries in the United States. Ukraine obtained EU candidate membership on 23rd, and British Prime Minister Johnson stated on the same day that Ukraine should not be encouraged to make concessions on territorial issues in exchange for a peaceful ceasefire. Map: On 21 April, local time, residents of Riubour fled their homes. Russia demands that the U.S. stop recruiting mercenaries in the U.S. According to TAS, in response to the public recruitment of Ukrainian military mercenaries by the Ukrainian Embassy in the United States, the spokesman for the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Zaharova 23, stated that such acts were contrary to the diplomatic status of the United States and posed a direct threat to the lives and security of its citizens, “which could lead to unpredictable and serious international consequences”, and the Russian side demanded that the United States immediately cease condoning them. She pointed out that the connivance of the United States once again demonstrated that the United States Government, instead of trying to resolve the crisis in Ukraine, was trying to “make Russia suffer a strategic failure” by exacerbating the conflict. Zaharova also quoted American media reports that, since the “special military operation” in Russia, some 20,000 Americans have expressed their willingness to help Ukraine and that more than 6,000 related applications have been duly registered by the Ukrainian Embassy. According to the foreign media, two U.S. mercenaries fighting in the U.S. have recently been captured by the Russian army. Presidential press secretary Peskov claims that there is no guarantee that they will be sentenced to death. According to the Russian satellite news agency, Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said he understood that some European countries were urging Ukraine to resume negotiations with the Russian side, but that the United States and the United Kingdom did not allow the Ukrainian side to do so. Russia claims to be fulfilling its obligation to supply gas to Europe In response to recent media reports that Germany feared that Russia would stop supplying natural gas through the “North Creek” pipeline, Peskov replied on 23 that Russia had been a reliable European energy supplier for decades and that Russia valued that reputation and was strictly fulfilling all its obligations. The French Minister of Environmental Protection and Energy Transformation, Pompirey, recently stated that French gas imports from Russia had decreased but had not stopped altogether. Also reported by the German media, a recent report issued by the German Federal Network Authority indicates that the current supply of the “North Creek-1” gas pipeline has been reduced to about 40 per cent of the highest technical capacity, and that if this low level continues without additional measures, the level of filling of the gas storage facility will not be guaranteed to reach 90 per cent by December this year. In response to the tension in the supply of natural gas, a bill previously adopted by Germany provided for a 90 per cent filling level of the country's gas storage facilities by December. Russia claims to have evacuated more than 2 million refugees from Ukraine and the Donbas region. According to the Russian Satellite News Agency, the head of the Russian National Defence Command Centre, Tianjintsev, on 23 days, said that more than 2 million refugees from Ukraine and the Donbas region, including more than 325,000 children, had been evacuated to Russian territory since the “Special Military Operation”. The Russian Ministry of Defence informed that the Russian army had destroyed 211 U.S. aircraft, 132 helicopters, 1329 drones, 349 anti-aircraft missile systems, 375 tanks and other armoured vehicles, 647 multiple-barrelled rockets, 2088 field artillery and mortars and 3818 special military vehicles during the “Special Military Operation”. The U.S. will provide more military support to Ukraine. The Minister of Defence of Ukraine, Reznikov, revealed on 23 March that the United States-assisted high-mobile rocket-propelled artillery system had arrived in Ukraine and that the weapons were known to be part of a new round of security assistance valued at $700 million to the United States. Also reported by Associated Press on 23, John Kirby, the United States National Security Council strategic communications coordinator, stated that the United States would provide Ukraine with an additional $450 million in military assistance, including “Haimas” multi-barrel rocket systems, patrol boats, and ammunition for United States artillery systems that had previously been provided to the U.S. side. According to the Ukrainian media, this was the thirteenth time during the conflict in Russia-Ukraine that the President of the United States, Biden, authorized the use of presidential funds to authorize the provision of a package of assistance to Ukraine, which also brought the total value of United States security assistance to the country since the outbreak of the conflict in Russia-Ukraine to $6.1 billion. Ukraine's candidature for membership in the European Union According to Reuters, the decision of the European Council of 23 to grant Ukraine candidate EU membership status was described by President Zelensky of Ukraine on that day as a “unique historic moment” in Ukraine's relations with the EU. However, a number of European dignitaries, including French President Macron, had previously stated that it would take a long time, possibly several years or decades, before Ukraine formally became a member of the European Union. According to the British Guardian, British Prime Minister Johnson 23 stated that it was the responsibility of the G-7 and NATO countries to prevent a “bad peace” in Ukraine, i.e. concessions made by the Ukrainian side on territorial issues in order to achieve a peaceful ceasefire.
