Military governor killed in blast in southeastern Ukraine
Berdyansk‘s local leader died in a hospital after sustaining severe injuries in a car blast
Artyom Bardin, the head of the Russian-controlled military-civilian administration in the southern Ukrainian city of Berdyansk, died on Tuesday after being severely injured in a car blast. His vehicle had been blown up earlier that day in an attack local authorities blamed on Ukrainian “infiltrators.”

The city of Berdyansk was seized by Russian forces early in the ongoing conflict between Moscow and Kiev and has remained under Russian control ever since. A powerful explosion hit Bardin’s car as it was parked near the local administration office. Three other civilian vehicles were damaged in the blast, Russian media outlets reported. Photos that surfaced on social media showed the official’s car burnt to ashes.

Who was behind the attack is still unclear. The local authorities had previously said that they were still searching for a Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance unit.

Bardin was reportedly the only person injured in the blast. The man was hospitalized in serious condition and his death was later confirmed by the local administration. “According to our information, he succumbed to his wounds,” Vladimir Rogov, a member of the Zaporozhye Region administration, told journalists.

Rogov also said that the local authorities considered the incident a terrorist attack perpetrated by the “terrorists of the Zelensky regime,” referring to Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky.

It is not the first such case in the Russian-controlled southern Ukrainian region. In late August, the deputy commander of local traffic police in Berdyansk, Alexander Kolesnikov, was killed in a similar incident.

Russia sent troops into Ukraine on February 24, citing Kiev’s failure to implement the Minsk agreements, designed to give the regions of Donetsk and Lugansk special status within the Ukrainian state. The protocols, brokered by Germany and France, were first signed in 2014. Former Ukrainian president Pyotr Poroshenko has since admitted that Kiev’s main goal was to use the ceasefire to buy time and “create powerful armed forces.”

In February 2022, the Kremlin recognized the Donbass republics as independent states and demanded Ukraine officially declare itself a neutral country that would never join any Western military bloc. Kiev insists the Russian offensive was completely unprovoked.

ロシアに対して全面戦争が宣言された - モスクワ

Total war declared against Russia – Moscow
The degree of animosity of Russia’s opponents is extraordinary, remarked Deputy FM Sergey Ryabkov
A total war has been declared against Russia, and it’s being waged in hybrid forms in all areas, Deputy Foreign Minister Sergey Ryabkov has said.

“The seriousness of the current period shouldn’t be underestimated,” Ryabkov warned in an interview with the magazine International Affairs on Tuesday.

“A total war has been declared against us. It’s being waged in hybrid forms, in all areas,” the diplomat said, apparently referring to the lavish military and financial aid provided to Ukraine by the US, EU and other countries amid its conflict with Russia, as well as the harsh sanctions imposed on Moscow by the West.

“The degree of animosity of our opponents – of our enemies – is enormous, extraordinary,” Ryabkov pointed out.

Moscow has warned on many occasions that foreign help to Kiev only escalates the fighting in Ukraine and puts Russia on a collision course with the US-led NATO bloc.

However, the deputy FM offered the reminder that “Russia has always, throughout its history, proved that it passes the most difficult trials with honor and emerges from them even stronger.” According to Ryabkov, “this will be case this time as well.”


「私たちに対して全面戦争が宣言されました。 それはあらゆる分野でハイブリッドな形で行われている」とこの外交官は述べ、ロシアとの紛争の中で、米国やEUなどからウクライナに提供された豊富な軍事・財政援助や、西側諸国がモスクワに課した厳しい制裁措置のことを指しているようである。




Huge global storm is starting, Moscow warns
“Absurd” decisions by the US and the EU are to blame, the Kremlin press secretary says

The world is about to experience major turbulence as a result of illogical moves by Western nations, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov has said.

“Most likely, a huge global storm is starting,” Peskov warned in an interview with Tass on Monday.

“In many ways, there are objective reasons for that, but there are also subjective reasons for this beginning storm, which are linked to absolutely illogical and often absurd decisions and actions of the authorities in the US, Europe, the EU and individual European countries,” he said.

The sanctions imposed by the US, the EU and some other nations on Russia over its military operation in Ukraine have backfired causing a spike in energy prices and record inflation across the West.

In this situation, Russia “still manages to maintain macroeconomic stability. Very intense, thoughtful and consistent work is being carried out in order to achieve that,” Peskov noted.

“As restrictions are being artificially introduced in the West, [Russia’s] trade and economic relations are understandably starting to focus more on the East,” he added.

However, the Kremlin press secretary, who was speaking at the launch of the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, insisted that “it was completely unfair to say that we have turned to the East just now… the Asia-Pacific region has always been a very important component for trade and economic relations, and energy dialogue, and other areas.”

US will make attack on Taiwan ‘really hard’ for China − air force general
Attacking Taiwan would be “one of the most difficult military operations in history” for Beijing, General Clinton Hinote warned
The Pentagon is prepared to target China’s core logistical support should it show aggression toward Taiwan, US General and Deputy Chief of Staff for Air Force Futures Clinton Hinote warned during an Atlantic Council panel on the future of air warfare on Tuesday.

“We’re going to make it really really hard to do offensive maneuvers against our friends and I would hope that our potential adversary China might think about that if they are contemplating the difficulty of getting across a 90 mile strait and going against Taiwan,” Hinote explained. “I would hope they would realize we’re not just going to let their logistics flow.”

We’re going to do everything we can to stop it and make that one of the most difficult military operations in history, and I think we have a chance to do that.

The general had returned to the subject of a potential war with China after he was asked about the “one lesson” he hoped the US military might take from the war in Ukraine, which was the focus of the event held by the think tank’s Scowcroft Center for Strategy and Security.

“We’d better understand logistics in this [Ukraine] conflict … achieving logistical support for a war of this intensity is hard,” he responded before pivoting back to Asia. “I don’t see it being any less intense in the Pacific.”

He also floated the threat of a Taiwan invasion to illustrate how the US’ strategic approach needed to focus on maintaining the current balance of power rather than overthrowing or upsetting its centers.

“We want to see the status quo continue! We don’t want to see China come over the Taiwan Strait and invade Taiwan, or to send missiles toward Japan, or to see Russia attack into [sic] a NATO ally,” he argued, insisting, “Our military capabilities ought to reflect that.”

Hinote has long called for the Pentagon to pay attention to the threat posed by Chinese military ascendency, insisting Beijing is rapidly catching up to Washington. During a congressional hearing last year, he told Congress that the US was losing to China in war-game simulations on a regular basis, urging legislators not to view Beijing’s superiority as a “future problem” so much as a “current problem.”


「我々は友人に対して攻撃的な作戦を実行することを本当に困難にするつもりであり、90マイルの海峡を越えて台湾に向かうことの難しさを熟考しているならば、我々の潜在的な敵である中国がそれについて考えてくれることを願っています。」ヒノテは説明した。 「私たちが彼らのロジスティクスの流れに任せるだけではないことを彼らが理解してくれることを願っています。」



「この[ウクライナ]の紛争における兵站をよく理解する必要があります...この激しさの戦争に対する兵站支援を達成することは困難です」と彼はアジアに戻る前に答えた。 「太平洋でそれがそれほど激しくなるとは思いません。」


「私たちは現状維持を望んでいます!中国が台湾海峡を越えて台湾を侵略したり、ミサイルを日本に向けて送り込んだり、ロシアが NATO の同盟国を攻撃したりするのを見たくはありません」と、「我々の軍事力はそれを反映すべきものである」と主張して述べた。"

Moscow accuses West of breaking ‘grain deal’ pledge
Unimpeded access for Russian food products to the world market has not been provided, Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said
Western countries have not fulfilled their promise to lift sanctions on Russian grain and fertilizers to allow them to reach world markets, the country’s foreign minister, Sergey Lavrov, said on Tuesday.

The commitment was part of a deal brokered by the UN and Turkey and signed in Istanbul in July to unblock Ukraine’s grain exports and ease a looming global food crisis.

Lavrov stressed that “artificially inflated” Western claims that Russian actions in Ukraine had undermined the stability of the global food market are “absolutely not the case.”

“On the contrary, our Western colleagues are not doing what we were promised by the UN secretary general, namely, they are not making a decision to remove logistical sanctions that prevent free access of Russian grain and fertilizers to world markets,” the minister pointed out at a joint press conference with his Thai counterpart, Don Pramudwinai.

Lavrov added that Russia continues to work with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres and his team to ensure the organization fulfills its obligations under the Istanbul agreements.

Wheat deliveries from Ukraine, a major producer, were disrupted after Russia launched its military operation in the neighboring state in late February. The two sides traded accusations over who was responsible for the stoppage of cargo traffic out of Ukrainian ports. Since August 1, however, when shipments from the ports resumed, 92 vessels have departed, bringing more than 2 million tons of food goods to global markets.
