Ukraine received American MLRS HIMARS | News from Germany about Ukraine | DW

On the 120th day full-scale war of Russia against Ukraine Russian troops continue to try to capture the settlements of the neighboring country. The Armed Forces of Ukraine and its territorial defense units are resisting aggression.

According to the UN, about 14 million Ukrainians have already left their homes. DW is monitoring behind developments Thursday, June 23 (Moscow time).


American multiple launch rocket systems HIMARS is already in Ukraine. Defense Minister Aleksey Reznikov wrote about this on his Twitter microblog. “HIMARS have arrived in Ukraine. Thanks to my American colleague and friend Lloyd Austin for this powerful weapon! The summer will be hot for the Russian occupiers. And the last for some of them,” he wrote.

The US Embassy previously reported that the United States since the beginning of the Russian invasion handed over military aid to Ukraine almost $4.6 billion, including 108 howitzers, 26.5 thousand Javelin and other anti-tank systems, 1.4 thousand Stinger anti-aircraft systems, 220 thousand artillery shells.


Convicted on June 9 to death in the “DPR” Moroccan Brahim Saadoun will file an appeal next week, Yelena Vesnina, the defendant’s lawyer, told Interfax. “If the death sentence is upheld, we will write for a pardon,” Vesnina told the agency.

Saadun Brahim is 21 years old. He came to Ukraine in 2019 and studied at the Faculty of Aerodynamic and Space Technologies of the Kyiv Polytechnic Institute. A year ago, he dropped out of school and went to serve on a contract basis in the same 36th separate marine brigade. He was taken prisoner during the fighting in Volnovakha. Earlier, Brahim Saadoun’s father told Reuters that his son has Ukrainian citizenship since 2020.


Human traffickers purposefully search the Internet refugees from Ukraine. Suspicious offers to Ukrainians were found on 42 online platforms in 14 European countries, a spokesman said Europol Thursday at a press conference in The Hague. Many announcements, including those on various forums, are in Russian. Some of them are addressed to Ukrainian women with job offers, such as “photo sessions” with the promise of a “brilliant future”, which, according to Europol, most often leads to prostitution. Europol opened 15 preliminary investigations.


Russia did not steal grain from Ukraine, Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of the President of the Russian Federation, told reporters. Earlier, the media reported, citing the Turkish Foreign Ministry, that Ankara was investigating allegations of theft of Ukrainian grain by Russia and will not allow such grain to be imported into Turkey. In early June, the Ukrainian ambassador to Ankara said that Turkish companies were buying grain stolen by Russia in the occupied Ukrainian territories.


Russia paid coupons in rubles on two issues of Eurobonds maturing in 2027 and 2047 for a total of 12.51 billion rubles. This was announced by the Ministry of Finance of the Russian Federation on Thursday. The ministry confirmed that payments in rubles can be converted into foreign currency and withdrawn abroad. Foreign owners and nominal holders of Eurobonds who agree to the new payment scheme will have to waive their claims in writing in the future, the Russian agency noted. Russia’s service of its public debt is complicated due to Western sanctions imposed in response to Russia’s aggression against Ukraine. On June 22, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a decree on payments of public debt in rubles.
