Latest news on Russia and the war in Ukraine

Counter-terrorism operation continues in Russia’s Belgorod region, says governor

Russia’s Belgorod region governor, Vyacheslav Gladkov, announced on Tuesday that the “counter-terrorism operation” in the region was ongoing. The defense ministry and law enforcement agencies are “cleaning up” the territory on the border with Ukraine. Gladkov appealed to the residents of the Graivoron district, who have temporarily left their homes, saying they should not yet return. On Monday, at least three people were injured, and three houses and a local administrative building damaged due to a cross-border attack from Ukraine. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s senior aide said they had nothing to do with the operation in Belgorod.

Power restored to Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant

Ukraine’s state-owned nuclear energy company, Energoatom, said on Monday that the Russian-occupied Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine was hit by an outage due to Russian shelling on an external power line. Energoatom announced later that day that power had been restored at the plant, having gone into “blackout mode.” This was the seventh time the plant has experienced an outage since the start of the war. The International Atomic Energy Agency has consistently called for the demilitarization of the facility as both Ukraine and Russia continuously accuse each other of endangering it.

Fighting continues with Russia bulking up forces, says Kyiv

The Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister, Hanna Maliar, has said that Ukrainian troops are advancing around Bakhmut, while Russia is bulking up its forces, contradicting the claims by Russia that it had entirely seized the town in eastern Ukraine. Maliar said that the enemy is focusing most of its forces in the direction of Bakhmut. The intensity of the fighting has somewhat decreased, but Ukraine continues to advance from the north and the south.

Wagner mercenary group to leave Bakhmut soon, says head

Chief of the Wagner Group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, says the Russian mercenaries he commands will depart from the captured town of Bakhmut soon. He advised his group’s telegram channel that they plan to leave Artemovsk from 25 May to 1 June. While Russia announced that it had seized the town, Ukraine rejected the claim and said they still held positions on the outskirts. Prigozhin’s backhanded comment directed at the Russian Defense Ministry was that it could send its generals, whom he has frequently disparaged for their lack of requisite skills, to defend the town.

Extensive Russian defenses revealed ahead of Ukrainian counteroffensive

BBC Verify, a unit tasked with investigating and verifying information, has found that Russian defenses and fortifications have been prepared in the occupied parts of Ukraine. The findings include the section of the Crimean coastline that was “littered with defense structures installed by Russian troops” and a line of anti-tank ditches and trenches, which now runs alongside a significant highway in the potential counteroffensive site. Ukrainian forces have not yet revealed when or where they would launch the counteroffensive.

Russia’s Recent Developments and the Ongoing Conflict in Ukraine

Governor Vyacheslav Gladkov confirmed on Tuesday that the “counter-terrorism operation” in Russia’s Belgorod region, near the border with Ukraine, was ongoing. The defence ministry and law enforcement agencies are continuing to “clean up” the area. Meanwhile, a senior aide to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy denied Ukrainian involvement in the armed operation. Ukraine and Russia continuously accuse each other of endangering the nuclear Zaporizhzhia plant, with Ukraine accusing Russia of shelling on Monday which led to a power outage. Power has since been restored. Elsewhere, there were reports of fighting around Bakhmut, with Hanna Maliar, Ukrain’s deputy defence minister, reporting that Ukrainian troops were advancing while Russian troops concentrated their forces in the area. Russian mercenary Yevgeny Prigozhin’s Wagner group appeared to bolster its hold on Bakhmut at the weekend, but he has now said his forces would leave soon to be replaced by the regular Russian army. Finally, the BBC has identified significant Russian defences and fortifications in occupied parts of Ukraine, adding to warnings from British defence analysts that Russian military should not be underestimated despite initial setbacks in the takeover.
