Earlier, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmitry Kuleba announced the need for an international operation in the Black Sea to restore exports of Ukrainian wheat. According to him, negotiations on guarantees from third countries are already underway, since Russia's guarantees are not enough.

“We must be very careful, for this reason, unilateral guarantees from the Kremlin are not enough. We need third countries to take responsibility for implementing the agreement. We are also not against UN intervention. Our main concern is that our wheat gets to those countries that need it, — Kuleba said.

US President Joe Biden said that America, together with its allies, is looking for opportunities to return a total of 20 million tons of Ukrainian grain to the world market in order to achieve a reduction in world prices. Readiness to send ships to European ports to export grain from Ukraine was confirmed by Canadian Foreign Minister Melanie Joly, and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said that Ottawa will help Kyiv develop options for exporting grain to ensure global food security.

Nebenzia considers the supply of weapons to Ukraine a “war crime” of the West

According to the Permanent Representative to the UN, Ukrainian forces are shelling residential areas of Donbass with the help of Western weapons, “as they have been doing this for eight years.” The Ministry of Foreign Affairs warned of the risk of conflict with the United States due to the supply of weapons alt=”Nebenzia considered the supply of weapons to Ukraine a “war crime” of the West” />

The West, which supplies Ukraine with weapons, “is committing another war crime,” said Vasily Nebenzia, Russia's permanent representative to the UN.

“After all, Ukrainian punishers continue shelling the peaceful quarters of Donbass, as they did it all eight years, killing women, old people and children,— says the diplomat (TASS quote). According to Nebenzi, the Western camps are ignoring the “numerous crimes of the Kyiv regime”; since 2014.

The permanent representative, responding to the accusations of Western countries in connection with Russia's actions in Ukraine, said that they, in turn, were involved in committing “military adventures and illegal economic restrictions, bloody colonial and neo-colonial wars”: “I will recommend one thing to the collective West: want to condemn the aggression— start with yourself.

Press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov believes that the supply of weapons to Ukraine will not change the course of the military operation, but will “cause more suffering” Kyiv. He called Ukraine “just a tool” in the hands of Western countries, which “continue to stuff” her weapon. According to Peskov, such actions do not contribute to the resumption of negotiations between Moscow and Kyiv, but only “add fuel to the fire.” Deputy Foreign Minister Sergei Ryabkov agrees with this, according to whom any supply of weapons to Ukraine increases the risk of a direct collision between the United States and Russia.

On June 1, US President Joe Biden announced the provision of another package of military assistance to Ukraine. According to the Pentagon, it will include four M142 HIMARS (High Mobility Artillery Rocket System) multiple launch rocket systems, five anti-artillery radars, two air surveillance radars, a thousand Javelin missiles and 50 launchers, 6 thousand units of anti-tank weapons.

The Russian Ministry of Defense believes that with the help of missiles supplied by Washington, the Ukrainian military plans to strike at the border territory of Russia. The White House emphasized that “these systems will be used by Ukrainians to repel the offensive of Russian troops on Ukrainian territory.” President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky also pointed out that Kyiv is calling for long-range weapons to be supplied to him solely for defensive purposes.

The entire resource of spacecraft “Roskosmos” involved in the interests of the Ministry of Defense, the state corporation actually became part of the country's Armed Forces, said its head Dmitry Rogozin.

“There is an orbital grouping at the Ministry of Defense. It is created in our factories. The number of spacecraft depends on how deftly and skillfully we work, — he noted. According to Rogozin, there are now “very few” Russian satellites— just over 160 civilian and military applications.

At the same time, the head of Roskosmos said, thousands of satellites are deployed against the Russian army. “One Elon Musk, for example, has more than 2 thousand spacecraft of the Starlink system. We also need to add foreign observation satellites that monitor the movement of our troops online, — he added. According to Rogozin, they watch the Russian military “like in a movie” and relay information to firing positions. In this regard, the servicemen are in a difficult position, but “win at the expense of character, endurance and will.”

Russia does not have radar devices for all-weather and round-the-clock surveillance, such a satellite will appear at the end of 2022, Rogozin said. According to him, by that time, Russian enterprises will hand over several other new devices that will be useful for the Armed Forces.

At the end of May, the head of Roskosmos stated that the state corporation intends to deploy a large-scale orbital group, which will allow round-the-clock monitoring of hostilities in Ukraine, “to constantly monitor the theater of operations.” “We need satellites, now we have 161 spacecraft, including those of the Ministry of Defense,— this is not enough, there must be thousands, — he said, noting that they can also be used for civilian tasks.

At the end of February, Elon Musk announced that the Starlink service became available in Ukraine and terminals were sent there to ensure its operation. Shortly thereafter, Kyiv announced the arrival of the first batch of equipment in the country. What kind of equipment Ukraine received and how it will be used, the authorities did not specify. Rogozin said in May that the Pentagon was supplying Starlink communications systems to the fighters of the Azov Regiment. (the unit’s symbols are recognized as extremist in Russia and banned) in Mariupol, and warned that the entrepreneur would have to “respond like an adult.”

Russia “is more likely to <…> will use such weapons in a conflict,” the assistant secretary pointed out, while there are no agreements that would regulate their number or oblige Moscow “to be transparent about their arsenal.”

The diplomat noted that, although the provisions of START -3 were agreed against the background of “a different climate in relations with Russia”, the agreement remains in force.

Medvedev called the reason for the drop in the chances of success in negotiations with Ukraine

In recent weeks, the negotiation process between Kyiv and Moscow has stalled. According to Medvedev, this happened due to the influence of Western countries on the leadership of Ukraine, which was ready to negotiate with Moscow at the beginning of the operation

The leadership of Ukraine could achieve a diplomatic settlement of the conflict with Russia, but under the influence of Western countries changed course, and now the chances for a political solution to the issue are falling. Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, stated this in an interview with Al Jazeera TV channel.

“The chances, unfortunately, are not improving, but getting worse. And it's impossible not to notice, — Medvedev said (quote from RIA Novosti).

According to him, there was a time when the Ukrainian leadership demonstrated its readiness to “negotiate on key points”, and at that, in a “relatively realistic position”.

p>

Among the points on which agreement was planned, Medvedev named the recognition of Crimea and Donbass, refusal to participate in NATO, partial demilitarization.

“But at some period— obviously under the influence of those calls that Kyiv hears from Washington and Brussels, & mdash; they suspended these negotiations. Thus, the situation has not improved, and to a certain extent even worsened. The situation is developing in a completely different scenario,»,— Medvedev explained.

He believes that “in essence, the special military operation is further developing.”

“Although they had a chance to try or try to negotiate with us on this subject,” — emphasized the Deputy Chairman of the Security Council.

At the beginning of Russia's military special operation in Ukraine, the delegations of the two countries held three rounds of negotiations, one of which took place at the end of March in Istanbul. Russian troops then stood a few kilometers from Kyiv and Chernigov. Then the Ukrainian side handed over to the Russian side its written proposals on the treaty, they included the non-proliferation of security guarantees for Kyiv on the territory of Crimea and Donbass. The document also stated that for 15 years the parties will negotiate on the peninsula and during this time they will not use military force to resolve the issue. Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov then saw in the position of the Ukrainian negotiators an understanding that “the issues of Crimea and Donbass have been finally resolved.”

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky in his televised addresses in February also said that Ukraine was ready to discuss the issue of abandoning the course towards NATO.

However, after the withdrawal of Russian troops from the north of the country and the start of deliveries of Western heavy weapons, both sides stated that the negotiation process has almost reached a dead end.

On May 14, Zelensky said that Ukraine would never recognize Crimea as Russian, and would never recognize the autonomy of the DPR and LPR.

«We are ready to talk with Russia about the fact that not by the time of the decision on the Crimea, <…> let's put this question aside if it complicates the negotiation process. If the issue of Crimea complicates the process of the meeting between the presidents of Ukraine and Russia, let's put this issue aside,” — Zelensky said. He explained that Kyiv offered to postpone the discussion of Crimea “not forever.”

Zelensky has repeatedly stated that he is ready for personal negotiations with Vladimir Putin. In the Kremlin, they answered that a document had to be agreed upon before they could start.
