Tokyo, Kiev ∙ Russia test-fired a supersonic missile in the Sea of Japan. The Moshkit medium-range missile aimed at warships hit its target 100 km away. This missile can destroy ships at a range of 125 km. Japan’s Foreign Minister Yoshimasa Hayashi said that he was monitoring Russia’s military exercises and that there was no damage in the missile launch.
At the same time, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyi said that the Zaporizhia nuclear power plant was being controlled by Russian forces for negotiations. He also stated that the security of the station cannot be ensured without Russia leaving the place. Zaporizhia, Europe’s largest nuclear power plant, has been under the control of Russian forces for months. The ongoing conflict in the region raises the threat of nuclear radiation. Zelensky visited southeastern Zaporizhia.
The Western coalition has decided to send more weapons to Ukraine as the war enters its 14th month. In response, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced last Saturday that an agreement had been reached to deploy nuclear weapons in Belarus. Belarus also confirmed this. Russian forces first moved towards Kiev through the border of Belarus, which is adjacent to Ukraine.
