Ukraine-Russia: news on the war of 18 August

On the 176th day of the war in Ukraine, China and Russia intensify their collaboration, including military. Beijing announced it would send troops to Russia’s east later this month for a round of joint exercises with Moscow and other countries including India, Belarus and Tajikistan, the first of its kind since 2018. The Beijing Defense Ministry has affirmed that the Chinese presence “is not related to the current international and regional situation” and thanked Putin for “the consistent and firm support on Taiwan”. The Kremlin leader had in fact defined the visit of the speaker of the US House Nancy Pelosi to the island “a well-planned provocation”.
Meanwhile, according to the British intelligence daily report, after the recent explosions at Russian air bases in Crimea, “Russian commanders are increasingly concerned about the deterioration of security” in the unilaterally annexed peninsula in 2014. Kiev’s goal is precisely that of “creating chaos” and destabilizing the Russians in the occupied areas, explained Zelensky’s right-hand man. But eyes continue to be on the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant, occupied by Russian troops: NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg has asked for an “urgent” inspection of the plant by the IAEA.
