Weekend Reads War in Ukraine: Zelensky calls to evacuate Donetsk
Canada shares expertise on moving grain from Ukraine, but faith in Russia 'nil'
OTTAWA — Canada is working to help get much-needed grain out of Ukraine to famine-threatened parts of the world, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Friday, now that the embattled country and Russia have signed deals to allow that to happen. Russia and Ukraine signed separate agreements Friday with Turkey and the United Nations, clearing the way for the export of millions of tons of desperately needed Ukrainian grain — as well as Russian grain and fertilizer. Speaking to journalists during a visit to Prince Edward Island, Trudeau cautioned that Russia has shown nothing but bad faith, adding his faith in the country is "pretty much nil.
L A War in Ukraine ranged in the east of the country. This Saturday, July 30, President Volodymyr Zelensky called the population of the Donetsk region, which is in the east of Ukraine, to evacuate in order to escape "Russian terror". The cities of the region are targeted daily by Russian bombings. "A government decision was made on the compulsory evacuation of the Donetsk region," said the Ukrainian president. "Please evacuate," he added in a video address.
"At this stage of war, terror is the main weapon of Russia," he said, while Russian strikes on the cities of the region make victims almost every day in the civilian population. The vice-premier Ukrainian minister Iryna Verechtchouk had previously announced the compulsory evacuation for the entire population of the Donetsk region, one of the two administrative regions of the Donbass basin, which remains partly under the control of kyiv. She had motivated this decision, in television statements, by the destruction of gas networks and the lack of heating next winter in the region.
earlier, Ukraine had denounced the Russian calls to "hang" or inflict another "humiliating death" on the combatants of the Ukrainian Azov regiment. Words that intervene in the aftermath of a strike against a prison where some of them were detained and which left more than 50 dead.
