The Ukrainian War is at a crucial stage, with negotiations between Ukraine and Russia leaving the world in suspense. But in addition to the humanitarian tragedy there is also the tragedy relating to animals, as we are documenting these days.
Natalya Mazur, director of the municipal shelter and veterinary clinics in Kiev, said the shelter needs help with nutrition and medicine. The emergency affects more than 500 dogs and 77 cats, with adoptions blocked and associations in difficulty.
The situation after the negotiations
Negotiations between Russia and Ukraine will continue on the border between Poland and Belarus. This was announced by the Kremlin, quoted by TASS. According to the Moscow negotiator, Vladimir Medinsky, the talks will take place in the next few days.
"We have identified some points on which it is possible to find common ground," he said, at the end of talks with the Ukrainian delegation in a secret location in Belarus, Vladimir Medinsky, Russian chief negotiator, presidential adviser in the Kremlin.
During his phone call with the French president, Emmanuel macron, Vladimir Putin asked for the recognition of Russian sovereignty over Crimea as one of the conditions for an end to the war in Ukraine. The Kremlin makes it known.
Russian forces have launched missiles at residential areas of Kharkiv, Ukraine's second largest city, where violent fighting is taking place. "The whole world must see this horror," wrote Anton Herashchenko, adviser to the Ukrainian Interior Ministry, in a post on Facebook, attaching a video of the missile attack.
Dozens of people were killed and injured, he added. The IOC degrades Vladimir Putin and the athletes of Russia and Belarus. In fact, the Executive withdrew the Olympic Order, the highest honor of the five-circle movement, to the Russian president after the invasion of Ukraine, and also strongly recommended to all world federations not to invite Russian and Belarusian athletes to international sports competitions, and where this is not possible due to time or legal reasons, urges them to ensure that no Russian or Belarusian athlete or sports official can take part under the name of Russia or Belarus.
Russian or Belarusian citizens, be they individual or team, should only be accepted as neutral, without anthems and flags.
