Today’s Breaking News on Russia -Ukraine war and world politics and Humanitarian crisis-

Ns News Online Desk:Ns News Online Desk: As we’ve been reporting, Russia is trying to encircle two cities in Ukraine’s easternmost region, Luhansk. The regional governor says the density of shelling has been growing every day as Russian forces try to capture the twin cities of Severodonetsk and Lysychansk.

They straddle the Siversky Donets river – there’s been fighting around there since 2014 and there have been concrete Ukrainian positions that have been hard to overcome.

Capturing them would mean Russia was well on the way to its goal of taking the whole of the Luhansk region. Russia’s invasion in its most active phase – Ukraine
Russia’s military campaign in Ukraine has entered its most active phase, Ukrainian defense ministry spokesman Oleksandr Motuzyanyk says.

Russian forces are trying to encircle Ukrainian troops in two cities straddling the Siversky Donets river in eastern Ukraine – Severodonetsk and Lysychansk.

Ukraine says Russian forces had not given up attempts to cross the river. The metro in Ukraine’s second-largest city Kharkiv, which has been used as a bomb shelter since the Russian invasion began, resumed services today despite sporadic shelling in the north eastern region.

“We have restarted the Kharkiv metro and almost all its stations today,” mayor Igor Terekhov told journalists. He said he decided to relaunch services “because we have to relaunch the economy”, adding that train rides would be free for the next two weeks.

The Kharkiv metro, with 30 stations, has sheltered thousands of civilians trying to escape shelling on the city, which is adjacent to the Russian border and was the focus of intense shelling since the February invasion.

Ukrainian forces have now pushed the majority of Russian forces away from Kharkiv, pushing them back towards the border. What’s the significance of Severodonetsk and Lysychansk?

Food crisis warnings: The UK says grain and food shortages due to the war could cause more deaths than the conflict itself, while Poland’s president says it could also lead to mass migration to Europe. The president of the EU commission accused Russia of using food as a weapon by confiscating grain and blockading ships in the territory it controls. Ukraine’s foreign affairs minister also claimed “Russian thieves” are stealing Ukrainian grain to sell it abroad.

Fighting in the east: Russia intensifies fighting as it attempts to capture Ukraine’s entire eastern region. In Mariupol, an adviser to the mayor says 200 bodies were found in the rubble of a high-rise building in the Russian-controlled city. In Donetsk, the city of Svitlodarsk has been taken over by Russian forces, according to Ukrainian officials and pro-Russian separatists of the Donetsk People’s Republic. Analysts say Russia is trying to encircle the towns of Severodonetsk, Lysychansk, and Rubizhne in the Donbas region China’s influence:

US President Biden calls the war a “global issue” as he meets key Asian allies to discuss security and economic concerns, including their differences over the Russian invasion and China’s growing influence.

Meanwhile, Sergei Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister, says the Kremlin is planning to develop closer ties to China and it would now look to count “only” on itself and “on countries which have proved themselves reliable and do not ‘dance to some other piper’s music'”. Russia says it has removed all mines from Azov Sea port
Russian forces have completed removing mines from the Azov Sea port of Mariupol, its defense ministry has said.

Earlier in the war, Russia accused Ukraine of laying mines to protect ports and said several hundred of the explosives had broken from cables and drifted away – Kyiv later dismissed that as disinformation. “Mines have been removed from the territory of the port and nearby waters,” the ministry said a statement.

Russia declared victory in Mariupol last week after its months-long battle to conquer the Ukrainian port city.

The last fighters defending the city’s Azovstal steel plant surrendered, months after the troops had been holed up in the huge complex, preventing Russia from establishing complete control over the city.
