Latest news on Russia and the war in Ukraine

Russia carried out a drone and missile attack on Ukraine overnight, according to Ukrainian officials. The attack reportedly involved 10 missiles, 23 Iran-made Shahed drones and two reconnaissance drones and targeted eastern regions of the country. The attack began at around 10pm on 25 May and lasted until 5am the following day, officials said. Targets in the Kharkiv and Dnipropetrovsk regions were hit, damaging homes and private companies. Russia has also said it would launch a preemptive strike if Ukraine received nuclear weapons from the West.

Belarusian President Alexander Lukashenko has announced that Russia has begun plans to deploy tactical nuclear weapons in the country. The announcement followed discussions between Lukashenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin prior to the Eurasian Economic Forum on 24 May. Western nations are seeking to limit the risk of nuclear escalation during the Ukraine conflict, with fears surrounding conflicts around nuclear facilities being high.

Russia has summoned the ambassadors of Germany, Denmark and Sweden to protest against a “complete lack of results” in their investigations of possible sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines by Russia. The pipelines run under the Baltic Sea to connect Russia and Germany, with investigations beginning after explosions damaged the pipelines in September 2022. A lack of evidence has left EU members reluctant to make any assumptions and allow chaos to increase. Russia is calling for their own experts to investigate the explosions.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian officials report that Russian soldiers are replacing Wagner Group mercenary fighters, who are withdrawing from Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine. Suburban areas of the town remain under Russian control, however, with the head of the Wagner Group, Yevgeny Prigozhin, announcing that the withdrawal process would take several days.
