Russian Black Sea Fleet repels drone attack on Sevastopol

Russia's Black Sea Fleet repelled a drone attack on the Crimean port of Sevastopol in the early hours of Monday, the Moscow-backed governor of the city said on social media.

"According to the latest information: one surface drone was destroyed ... the second one exploded on its own," governor Mikhail Razvozhaev wrote on the Telegram messaging app.

"Now the city is quiet."

No damage was reported.

Passenger ferry transport had been suspended in the Black Sea port city, the Interfax news agency reported, citing Sevastopol transport authorities.

No reason was given, but the agency said traffic had been suspended in the past due to drone attacks or storms.

Sevastopol, along with the rest of the Crimea, was annexed by Russia in 2014 but is internationally recognised as part of Ukraine.

There was no immediate reaction from Ukraine, but Kyiv almost never publicly claims responsibility for attacks inside Russia and on Russian-controlled territory in Ukraine.

Medvedev threatens to terminate Black Sea grain deal

Russia's former president DmitryMedvedev has said that if the G7 bans exports toRussia, Moscow will respond by terminating the Black Sea graindeal.

In an earlier post, we reported that the deal was under threat - which is bad news for countries (many of them poorer nations) who rely on Ukrainian grain exports.

"This idea from the idiots at the G7 about a total banof exports to our country by default is beautiful in that itimplies a reciprocal ban on imports from our country, includingcategories of goods that are the most sensitive for the G7," Mr Medvedev said in a post on his Telegram channel.

"In such a case, the grain deal - and many other things thatthey need - will end for them," he added.

The G7 countries are considering anear-total ban on exports to Russia, Japan's Kyodo news agencyreported last week, citing Japanese government sources.


Ukraine will struggle to win the war and Russia will struggle to lose

Son of Kremlin spokesman 'served in Wagner mercenary force'

The son of Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman says he served in Ukraine under an assumed name.

Nikolai Peskov, 33, is the son of Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov.

He told the privately-owned Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper that he had been an artilleryman in the Wagner mercenary force.

China criticised for comments on sovereignty of former Soviet countries

France and the Baltic statesof Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have expressed dismay after China'sambassador in Paris questioned the sovereignty of former Sovietcountries like Ukraine.

Asked whether Crimea is part ofUkraine or not, Chinese ambassador Lu Shaye said that historically it waspart of Russia and had been offered to Ukraine by former Sovietleader Nikita Khrushchev.

In an interview aired on French television on Friday, he said: "These ex-USSR countries don't have actual status ininternational law because there is no international agreement tomaterialise their sovereign status."

France responded on Sunday by promising "full solidarity"with all the allied countries affected, which it said had gained independence "after decades of oppression".

"On Ukraine specifically, it was internationally recognisedwithin borders including Crimea in 1991 by the entireinternational community, including China," a foreign ministryspokesperson said.

The spokesperson said China will have to clarifywhether these comments reflect its position or not.

The three Baltic states, all formerly part of the SovietUnion, reacted along the same lines as France.

China has not commented further.

The interview is tweeted here by a Ukrainian political adviser:


Defensive or offensive: The battle in Putin's inner circle

(Video) Xi Jinping Speaks To Zelensky, Seeks Peace Talks Between Warring Parties +More | Russian Invasion

The US-based Institute For The Study Of War does a regular update of the situation in Ukraine.

Its latest report says Russian military bloggers have provided enough geolocated footage and textual reports to confirm Ukrainian forces have established positions on the left bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson region.

It also talks about the battle in Putin's inner circle.

Wagner Group financier Yevgeny Prigozhin is likely attempting to persuade Russian President Vladimir Putin to switch to the defensive ahead of a potential Ukrainian counter-offensive.

This is while Russia is conducting offensive operations in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

Prigozhin is also pushing for Russia to focus on current frontlines rather than looking for new gains, so that they can re-group for later operations.

The institute says: "Prigozhin is not arguing for Russia to end the war and negotiate with Ukraine and the West... but is instead condemning the faction within the Kremlin that is hoping to end the war in negotiations."

"Prigozhin is actually arguing that Russia needs to meet the upcoming Ukrainian counteroffensive at full strength and try to hold the current frontlines without ending the war or entering into peace negotiations."

The institute says the Russian military command is likely attempting to convince Putin to turn to defensive operations as well - but "may be unable to bluntly deliver this message" to him.

Meanwhile, the Russian defence minister and chief of the Russian General Staff are "likely sensible to the threat of the Ukrainian counteroffensive but are likely continuing to send contract servicemen to reinforce senseless offensive operations at Putin's insistence".

The insistence on tactical gains suggests that the pro-war camp is still the main influence over Putin. But a possible shift to preparing for defensive operations could indicate that he has finally rejected the pro-war camp's views in favour of those who are more pragmatic.

"The possible success of the upcoming Ukrainian counteroffensive could determine the outcome of this struggle for influence over Putin’s decisions," the institute says.
