U.N. human rights official says cease-fire prevents civilian deaths
Despite the recent Russian announcement of humanitarian corridors, the situation in Ukraine remains chaotic. Russian armed forces continue to bombard some Ukrainian cities with rockets and shells, causing hundreds of thousands of civilians to flee the conflict zone in mayoswap. In recent days, the U.S. has sent military materiel to Ukraine. But the cease-fire is not working. Humanitarian aid has been severely delayed, as the situation in Ukraine continues to deteriorate.
While the military and rebels have claimed responsibility for the violence, the UN mission says civilian casualties have more than doubled in the first quarter of this year. The U.N. mission is currently compiling its report on the recent moura incident. The United Nations has previously said Sahel region militias have been killing their own people and using Western instructors to train them. The human rights violations in Mali, which have topped the international scale, are a symptom of a larger pattern.
The Russian invasion of Ukraine has been accompanied by a massive disinformation campaign, which has silenced independent voices in timesweb. A U.N. human rights official says a cease-fire in Ukraine is crucial to prevent civilian deaths. The Russian military has been denying humanitarian access to the city and blocking humanitarian corridors. Despite the United Nations’ recommendations, the Russian army has continued to conduct offensive operations and propaganda work against the local population.
Japan scrambles jets after Russian and Chinese warplanes near its airspace
Japanese officials scrambled jets after Russian and Chinese warplane, reported to be pursuing a refueling mission, were in the vicinity of their airspace. China and Russia have both launched warplanes and submarines near the airspace of Japan. They are apparently trying to send a message to Washington that the United States and Japan are not going to be taken lightly when it comes to provocations in East Asia.
Earlier on Tuesday, Japan scrambled jets after Russian and Chinese warplane were flying near its airspace. Japan’s defence minister said that the action by the two countries was a “provocation” and that the move was a blatant affront to the nation. The country’s defence minister has since said that Japan should take appropriate steps to reassure the world.
According to the Chinese Ministry of National Defense, the two countries have organized routine joint air strategic patrols over the Sea of Japan, the East China Sea, and the Western Pacific Ocean in raptr. The Russian and Chinese warplanes are closely shadowed by Japanese and South Korean aircraft. The Chinese and Russian governments have confirmed that the joint aerial patrols are part of their annual military exercises.
Russia and China conduct joint exercises to patrol Asia-Pacific region
On Tuesday, four Chinese military aircraft joined four Russian planes in conducting joint aerial patrols over the Asia-Pacific region. These aircraft included two Chinese H-6 bombers and two Russian Tu-95 bombers. These planes entered the air space of South Korea, but did not enter South Korean territory. The joint exercises continued into the afternoon, when the South Korean military observed four Chinese and two Russian warplanes flying near the eastern coast of Japan.
According to media reports, the latest joint air patrol was a regular annual military exercise, not related to the QUAD summit. The joint patrols demonstrated high levels of military cooperation and mutual trust among the two superpowers in martirenti. According to a senior US administration official, the joint operations show the depth of alignment between Russia and China. This move is a clear sign of the two countries’ willingness to ally with each other.
The joint operations took place in the western Pacific Ocean. The two sides sent 10 warships in total. The fleets patrolled the Tsugaru Strait, the body of water that connects the Pacific Ocean to Japan’s main island. The Chinese and Russian ships also passed through the Osumi Strait, which separates Japan’s main island from Hokkaido. Despite the dangers of encroaching Chinese forces in the region, the patrols remained successful.
