News “Kyiv has a chance to gain an advantage in the war.” News headlines and events Last Minute Russia


Nearly a year after Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, US Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin said the Kyiv government has a chance to gain a battlefield advantage over Russian forces.

“I think they will have a really great chance to make a difference on the battlefield, to take the lead and move it forward,” Austin said after the meeting of NATO defense ministers in Brussels.

Noting that the US-led military alliance wants to train soldiers in the use of munitions that NATO countries are sending to Ukraine, Austin said: “We will not only provide a platform, but we will also make sure to increase competence.”

Downplaying Russian President Vladimir Putin and Moscow’s actions on the battlefield, Austin tweeted: “It’s been almost a year since Putin’s irresponsible war began… Things didn’t go as the Kremlin planned. NATO is better than usual, more united and more determined,” he said.

As the first anniversary of the war approaches, on February 24, the European Union (EU) today proposed new sanctions against Russia. On the other hand, NATO defense ministers met in Brussels and discussed increasing spending on defense and arms production.

Ursula von der Leyen, President of the European Commission, said the proposed new sanctions package includes a ban on the export of industrial and technological products to Russia, depriving the Russian military of essential components for weapons systems.

The proposal also includes sanctions against Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. The Iranian “Shahed” used drones, and Russian troops attacked Ukrainian infrastructure.

The measures are also directed against Russian propagandists and military leaders.

Von der Leyen said that Russian President Putin is “waging a public war against the propaganda army and disinformation network” and that they are “spreading malicious lies to polarize societies.”

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg also said that they will discuss ways to increase the capacity of the Allied defense industry.

Stoltenberg stressed at the start of the two-day meeting of defense ministers that Ukraine must provide more ammunition to continue fighting Russian forces, and that allies must complete the delivery of promised tanks and other heavy equipment.

Yesterday, the United Nations Humanitarian Affairs Agency and the United Nations Refugee Agency launched a joint initiative to raise $5.6 billion to help those affected by Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

It was stated that this fund would be directed to food, medical and other assistance to Ukrainians, as well as to help Ukrainian refugees and 10 host countries.

“Almost a year later, the war continues to cause astonishing daily death, destruction and displacement,” said Martin Griffiths, UN Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Assistance.
