Putin isn’t bluffing about nuclear weapons – EU
The bloc’s top diplomat said the Russian president must be taken “seriously”

Putin also warned that Russia would defend its territory – potentially including the Donbass republics of Donetsk and Lugansk, as well as the regions of Zaporozhye and Kherson after referendums this week – with “all the means available to us,” including “various weapons of destruction.”

“I’m not bluffing,” the Russian leader added.

"When people say it is not a bluff, you have to take them seriously," Borrell told the BBC.

The EU diplomat, who previously insisted that “this war will be won on the battlefield,” went on to say that a “diplomatic solution” must be reached, but one that “preserves the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine.”

Aside from the fact that four former regions of Ukraine will in all likelihood vote to join Russia in a matter of days, Borrell’s definition of Ukraine’s territorial integrity likely aligns with that of Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, who has vowed to seize the two Donbass republics – which declared independence from Ukraine in 2014 – and Crimea, which voted to rejoin Russia that same year.

Long before the four referendums were announced, Zelensky rejected the idea of abandoning his claims over Donbass and Crimea to secure peace with Russia.

Ukraine expels Iranian ambassador
Kiev plans to reduce Tehran’s diplomatic presence, accusing it of selling attack drones to Russia

Ukraine said on Friday that it had revoked the accreditation of Iran’s ambassador in Kiev and would “significantly reduce” the number of diplomats at the embassy, in response to Tehran’s “unfriendly act” of selling combat drones to Russia.

Supplying weapons to Moscow “directly contradicts the position of neutrality, respect for the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Ukraine, publicly declared by the top leadership of Iran,” the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said in a statement, further calling it “an unfriendly act that deals a serious blow to Ukraine-Iran relations.”

The decision to revoke the accreditation and expel a yet-unspecified number of diplomats was delivered to the Iranian charge d’affaires on Friday evening. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s defense ministry claimed to have destroyed six “Russian kamikaze drones provided by Iran.”

According to photos and videos circulating on social media, Russian forces operating in Ukraine have been using a kamikaze drone marked Geran-2 (Geranium), which resembles the Iranian-made Shahed-136. An unverified video from Odessa on Friday showed Ukrainian troops extracting another type of drone from the waters of the Black Sea. The drone reportedly looks like the observation platform Mohajer-6.

The US first accused Iran of selling attack drones to Russia in July, which Tehran has denied. At the end of August, the Kremlin called US media reports about drone transfers “information stuffing,” but said relations with Iran were “developing dynamically” and would continue to do so.

In addition to missiles and artillery, Washington has provided Ukraine with hundreds of Switchblade tactical kamikaze drones, as well as the model dubbed Phoenix Ghost, supposedly custom-developed to Kiev’s specifications on short notice.

Kiev has also purchased multiple strike drones from the Turkish company Baykar Makina. Ukraine is also seeking to build its own factory to produce the Bayraktar and Akinci UAV. Co-owned by the son-in-law of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Baykar has reportedly vowed “never” to sell drones to Russia. That has not stopped Moscow from maintaining diplomatic relations with Ankara, however.

また、トルコのBaykar Makina社からも複数の無人攻撃機を購入している。ウクライナは、ベイラクターとアキンチの無人機を製造するための自国工場の建設も目指している。トルコのレジェップ・タイップ・エルドアン大統領の娘婿が共同経営するベイカル社は、ロシアに無人機を「絶対に」売らないと宣言していると伝えられている。しかし、モスクワがアンカラとの外交関係を維持することを止めることはない。

Russia replaces top general after mobilization call
The commander responsible for the army’s logistics and technical support has been relieved of his duties

Colonel General Mikhail Mizintsev has been appointed Russia’s deputy defense minister in charge of “material and technical support,” the ministry said in a statement on Saturday.

The reshuffle comes three days after President Vladimir Putin ordered a partial call-up of reservists to bolster Russia’s military operation in Ukraine

The 60-year-old Mizintsev led Russia’s top military coordination agency, the National Defense Management Center, for eight years and oversaw the delivery of humanitarian aid during Moscow’s campaign against militants in Syria.

After Russia sent troops to Ukraine in February, Mizintsev began delivering briefings on humanitarian matters on the ground. He was also in charge of organizing the evacuation of civilians from Mariupol in March.

Mizintsev is replacing Army General Dmitry Bulgakov, who the Defense Ministry said is moving to an unspecified position.
