Might seem insignificant but I’m of the opinion every little bit helps. Russia loses F1 race and Champions League final. FIFA is being pressured to kick Russia out of the World Cup as well.

Russia seeks explanation from France over seized ship -RIA

The Russian embassy in France is seeking explanations from the French authorities over the seizure of a Russian cargo ship in the English channel, Russia's RIA news agency quoted the embassy as saying today.

A ship that French authorities said could belong to a Russian company suspected of violating trade sanctions linked to the war in Ukraine was seized by French sea police early on Saturday.

Turkey to block Black Sea access to Russian navy vessels.

https://twitter.com/zelenskyyua/status/ ... 74598?s=21

"I thank my friend Mr. President of (Turkish flag) @RTErdogan and the people of (Turkish flag) for their strong support. The ban on the passage of (Russian flag) warships to the Black Sea and significant military and humanitarian support for (Ukrainian flag) are extremely important today. The people of (Ukrainian flag) will never forget that!"


Nice one, Turkey.

And the disruptions could drag on for months or even years, as crop production in the area could be halted and take a long time to restart.

Turkey did not close strait to Russian warships.


“Turkey hasn’t made a decision to close the straits to Russian ships yet,” a senior Turkish official tells me

So guess Zelensky was making a request with that tweet

https://www.smh.com.au/national/austral ... e90#p53e90

This is a dangerous escalation.

The earlier report that Kiev/Kyiv was encircled looks to have been Russian false information:

SMH has revised the earlier report.

Major tone sharpening from China's MOFA spokesperson today...highlights:

AFP: Last week, you said that Ukraine was a sovereign country, but do you also think that the Ukrainian government is legitimate? If it is, are you calling on Russia to respect a democratically elected government?

Wang Wenbin: The sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries should be respected and upheld, and the purposes and principles of the UN Charter should be jointly upheld. This a principle China always follows and a basic norm governing international relations that all countries should adhere to. At the same time, China believes that one country’s security cannot be at the expense of others’ security; still less should one country flagrantly undermine others’ sovereign security for his own military advantage and absolute security. All countries’ legitimate security concerns should be respected.

AFP: On the nuclear issue again, in early January, Russia, China, France, the UK and the US reached a statement pledging to avoid a nuclear conflict, and stated that nuclear weapon should only be used as a deterrent. Do you think that Putin’s order possibly violated this pledge? 

Wang Wenbin: I already stated China’s position just now. I reiterate China’s consistent belief: a nuclear war cannot be won and mustn’t be fought.

AFP: Russia’s war on Ukraine is obviously not just targeting military sites, but is also hitting civilian targets. So in this context, is it not time for China to clearly condemn Russia’s aggression against a democratically elected government?

Wang Wenbin: All countries’ sovereignty and territorial integrity should be respected and upheld and the purposes and principles of the UN Charter should be jointly safeguarded. This is a principle China consistently holds and a basic norm governing international relations that all countries should adhere to. At the same time we recognize the special historical complexities on the Ukraine issue and understand Russia’s legitimate security concerns. China calls for efforts to completely discard the Cold War mentality and forge a balanced, effective and sustainable European security mechanism through dialogue and negotiation.


Mr. Wang also emphasized several times that Russia is not an ally of China, rather a 'strategic partner'.

Former Russian Foreign Minister Andrei Kozyrev has called on Russian diplomats to resign in protest of the war in Ukraine.

"I urge all Russian diplomats to resign in protest," he wrote on Twitter on Tuesday.

"Dear Russian diplomats, you are professionals and not free propagandists. "When I worked at the Foreign Ministry, I was proud of my colleagues," Kozyrev added. "Now it is simply impossible to support the bloody fratricidal war in Ukraine," the former minister wrote, rtv21.tv reports.

Kozyrev was foreign minister from 1991 to 1996 when Boris Yeltsin was president

Turkey airlifts additional TB2 UCAVs to Ukraine

The TB2 is the only UCAV in Ukrainian service and was first used by the country in October 2021 when a separatist D-30 122 mm howitzer in the breakway Donbass region was targeted and destroyed. Footage released by the Ukrainian government since the launch of offensive Russian operations on 24 February has shown the TB2s to have been heavily engaged in the fighting, destroying several ground vehicles including Buk surface-to-air missile systems.
