Ukrainian ballistic missiles intercepted – Russia
Russia’s Defense Ministry says Kiev forces fired a barrage of missiles, including ballistic Tochka-U rockets, at the city of Kherson in southern Ukraine
Russia’s Defense Ministry claimed on Thursday that Ukrainian forces fired more than a dozen missiles overnight at the city of Kherson in southern Ukraine, which was seized by Russian troops in early March. The ministry said in a statement that Russian air defenses intercepted the rockets.

According to Moscow, late on Wednesday the Ukrainian military launched at least two ‘Tochka-U’ ballistic missiles as well as 12 missiles from a high-powered multiple rocket launcher, apparently targeting residential areas of Kherson. The incoming rockets were, however, shot down by the Russian forces deployed in the city. A video released by the Russian Defense Ministry appears to show the aftermath of the shelling, with what looks like missile debris seen in the footage.

The ministry branded the attack a war crime, saying the “criminal, indiscriminate strike by the nationalists targeted residential areas along Ushakov Avenue, as well as nurseries, schools and other social infrastructure.” The attack represented a “direct violation of international humanitarian law,” the statement reads.

Earlier on Thursday, several Russian media outlets reported that the Ukrainian missiles targeted, among other things, a television tower, which relays Russian TV channels. Although the tower did not sustain any visible damage in the shelling, Russian channels went off air in the immediate aftermath of the attack, according to reports. Access to those TV channels has since been restored, according to Russia’s RIA Novosti news agency. According to initial media reports, a total of three ‘Tochka-U’ tactical ballistic missiles were fired, two of which ended up being intercepted by Russian forces.

The Ukrainian military has yet to comment on the incident.

China issues ‘color revolution’ warning

China issues ‘color revolution’ warning
Central Asia must be wary of interference by ‘major powers,’ China’s defense chief said
The Chinese defense minister has said Beijing stands opposed to foreign intervention in Kazakhstan, warning of “color revolutions” launched under the guise of protests while also vowing to support the country’s efforts to “safeguard national security.”

Following a meeting with Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev in Nur-Sultan on Monday, Defense Minister Wei Fenghe touted the “bright future prospects” offered by bilateral ties, also touching on the threat posed by foreign interference.

“China firmly opposes external forces deliberately instigating a ‘color revolution’ in Kazakhstan, and supports Kazakhstan in taking effective measures to safeguard national security and social stability,” Wei said, as cited by the Defense Ministry. “We must be alert to some major powers interfering in Central Asia and disrupting the security of Central Asia.”

Though the minister did not elaborate, his remarks come around three months after mass protests erupted in Kazakhstan, initially triggered by a hike in fuel prices. Peaceful rallies became violent over the course of several days in January, with at least 225 people killed during clashes with security forces and thousands more injured and arrested.
The unrest prompted a deployment by the Russian-led Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), which sent peacekeepers into the country at Tokayev’s request and ultimately helped to quell the violence. In response to protesters’ grievances, the government sacked several top officials and vowed a series of political and economic reforms, including the restoration of previous price controls on fuel.

The president claimed tens of thousands of “foreign-trained terrorists” and “bandits” were behind the rioting, arguing they aimed to carry out a coup on behalf of another state, though he did not provide evidence for the assertion.

At the time, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Li said the protests were driven by “three evil forces” of extremism, terrorism and separatism, offering support from Beijing’s security forces. Though Kazakhstan belongs to the China-led Shanghai Cooperation Organization and reserves the right to request security assistance from member states, it did not do so during January’s unrest.

Gazprom denies stoppage of gas supplies to Poland
A Polish media report claimed Russia had stopped deliveries to the country

Polish PGNIG reported that it received a notification from Gazprom about the complete suspension of gas supplies from April 27
Polish PGNiG said it considers the cessation of gas supplies from Russia a violation of contractual obligations

Poland confirms Russian gas supply to be halted
With Warsaw refusing to pay in rubles, Russia will suspend deliveries starting Wednesday, the Polish state company confirmed

Bulgaria confirms Russian gas to be halted

Poland finds it’s tough to go cold turkey on Russian energy
Warsaw is hectoring EU countries to immediately stop Russian energy imports, but is leaving some wiggle room for itself.

シンクタンクのForum Energiiによると、ポーランドはガスの46%、石油の64%、石炭の15%をロシアから調達している。このため、ポーランドはEUで最も多くロシアのエネルギーを購入している国の一つであり、ウクライナの重要な同盟国であると自認する政府にとっては居心地の悪い立場である。

Polish households left without gas
Supply to parts of the country has stopped due to anti-Russia sanctions
Poland’s Deputy Minister of the Interior and Administration Paweł Szefernaker said on Thursday that several dozen municipalities, were left without liquefied gas because of sanctions imposed by Warsaw on Russian energy giant Novatek.

“At the moment, we are trying to find ways to solve this problem and resume gas supplies to areas where blue fuel was supplied by a Russian company that fell under sanctions,” Szefernaker said as quoted by media.

He explained that after the introduction of sanctions, Novatek’s subsidiary Novatek Green Energy suspended gas supplies to several dozen Polish municipalities.

The ministry could not inform the regional authorities about the sanctions in advance, since “decisions to include firms on the list of enterprises covered by sanctions were made behind closed doors,” Szefernaker reportedly said.

To restore the gas supply, authorities intend to seize the infrastructure owned by the Russian firm. According to Deputy Interior Minister Maciej Wonsik, a group of experts is preparing materials for the prime minister so that he can “issues a decision on the basis of the law on crisis management that Polish companies take over the gas infrastructure and supply gas to these communes.”

Wonsik added: “Of course, it is strange that this infrastructure is in the hands of a Russian firm.”

This week, Polish authorities announced sanctions on 50 Russian legal entities and individuals, including companies Acron, Gazprom and Novatek.

Bulgarians want Russian gas back – minister
Moscow halted supplies to the country after Sofia rejected the ruble payment scheme
Bulgarian businesses want Sofia “to make it possible to resume talks with Gazprom” after the Russian energy giant cut off gas supplies to the country, according to Bulgarian Deputy Prime Minister and Economy Minister Kornelia Ninova.

“We propose that, by then, gas prices should be frozen or capped at their level in the contract with Gazprom and the difference with the higher prices of alternative supplies be paid for by the State,” she said at a press conference after meeting with the Bulgaria Professional Employer Organization (PEO).

The calls come a day after Gazprom ceased delivering gas to Bulgaria after the country refused to pay for energy supplies in rubles. Bulgaria relies on Russia for nearly 90% of its gas, with the remainder coming from Azerbaijan.

Earlier in the day, Bulgarian Prime Minister Kiril Petkov said that Bulgaria has enough gas supplies to last more than one month should nothing change, stressing that Sofia would not accept Russia’s terms on exports of gas.

“But we hope to complete the construction of a new interconnector with Greece by the end of June. And we also look forward to a common strategy for the procurement of liquefied gas by the European Commission,” Petkov said in an interview with Le Monde.
