UKRAINE

CNN reports that that Russian Lt. General Yakov Rezantsev, Commander of the 49th Combined Arms Army of the Southern Military District, has been KILLED near Kherson.'

  • If confirmed Rezantsev would be the seventh Russian general killed in the war.
  • Comes after news a few hours ago from Sky quoting a Western source: 'A Russian brigade commander, Colonel Medvechek, of 37 Motor Rifle Brigade has been killed deliberately by his own troops after his unit suffered heavy losses.'
  • US defense officials continue to report heavy fighting around Bucha and Irpin to the north west of Kyiv as part of the ongoing Ukrainian counter-offensive which began earlier this week.
  • According to US intelligence quoted by Jeff Selden, Moscow is now not pursuing a ground offensive on Kyiv but appears to be prioritising the Donbas.
  • Ukraine said today that Russian forces have secured a partial land corridor from Russia to the Crimean Peninsula but beyond that there have few significant territorial gains elsewhere in Ukraine.
  • Turkish President Recep Erdogan said earlier today that Ukraine and Russia 'are close to a consensus on four of six points in the negotiation' including the adoption of Russian as official language.
  • This was swiftly denied by Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba a short while ago. Kuleba said 'Ukraine insists on a ceasefire, security guarantees and Ukraine's territorial integrity.'
  • Kuleba's comments have been circulated by Ukrainian news services with some criticising the Turkish president for undermining the Ukrainian negotiating position.
