tass.ru - The military operation in Ukraine - on June 14 - 17:50 hrs
The Ukrainian president said that his country does not have "time for negotiations that will not bring anything"
Moscow does not reject the possibility of direct contact between Russian President Vladimir Putin and Ukrainian President Vladimir Zelensky, but this requires preparation, "no one will meet in vain," Yury Ushakov, an aide to the Russian leader, said on Tuesday.
At the same time, the President of Ukraine said that his country does not have "time for negotiations that will not bring anything."
In turn, the DPR asks Russia to use additional Iskander missile systems and aircraft to destroy the artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in order, among other things, to stop the shelling of peaceful neighborhoods in the republic's settlements from the Ukrainian side, said Eduard Basurin, deputy head of the people's militia department of the republic.
TASS has compiled the main information about the events in Ukraine and around it.
About the special operation
Over the past day, Russian troops have hit an arsenal of artillery weapons and ammunition with Kalibr high-precision long-range missiles, Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Konashenkov said on Tuesday. Russian air defense systems shot down a MiG-29 aircraft of the Ukrainian Air Force, a Mi-24 helicopter, intercepted a Ukrainian Tochka-U missile and 14 Smerch MLRS rockets in the Donbas, he added.
As the head of Chechnya Ramzan Kadyrov said on Tuesday on his Telegram channel, the last stage of the liberation of the village of Kamyshevakh in the Luhansk People's Republic has been completed. The personnel of the special police regiment named after Hero of Russia Akhmat-Khadzhi Kadyrov of the Ministry of Internal Affairs for the Chechen Republic, together with the fighters of the 6th Cossack Regiment, "cleaned up everything to the last house," Kadyrov wrote.
Shelling of Donetsk
On Tuesday, the Armed Forces of Ukraine shelled Donetsk three times in 15 minutes from barrel artillery of 152 mm caliber, the DPR representative office at the Joint Center for Control and Coordination (JCCC) of the ceasefire regime reported. On the eve of the civilian infrastructure, Donetsk was subjected to massive shelling, which killed seven and injured more than 40 civilians, including children.
According to the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, to attack Donetsk, the Armed Forces of Ukraine use banned French cluster shells and weapons from NATO countries. The Investigative Committee called the actions of the Ukrainian security forces unprecedented in their cruelty.
Press Secretary of the President of the Russian Federation Dmitry Peskov considered the intensification of shelling of civilian objects in Lugansk and Donetsk as barbaric.
The representative of the UN Secretary-General Stefan Dujarric also drew attention to the aggravation of the situation, but he only stated that "in the last 24 hours, civilians, including children, have been killed," and said that during the shelling of a maternity hospital in Donetsk, "no one was injured or killed, but several pregnant women had to be transferred to other hospitals." Assistant to the President of the Russian Federation Yuri Ushakov found the UN reaction to what is happening in Donetsk vague.
Evacuation in Severodonetsk
The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation and the formations of the LPR will open a humanitarian corridor to the city of Svatovo from June 15 to evacuate civilians from the Azot chemical plant in Severodonetsk, Mikhail Mizintsev, head of Russia's interdepartmental coordinating headquarters for humanitarian response in Ukraine, said. At the same time, he noted that in this case, the Mariupol scenario is repeated, where, under the guise of rescuing civilians, the Ukrainian side tried to withdraw the surviving armed formations from the encirclement.
The President of Ukraine said on Tuesday that Ukraine does not intend to shell the territory of Russia if it receives weapons with a long-range from Western countries. At the same time, he made it clear that he meant the shelling of civilian targets.
Zelensky explained that there are areas in Ukraine where the places of concentration of Ukrainian troops are located at a distance of more than 100 km from the places of concentration of Russian troops and Kyiv "needs appropriate weapons to shorten this distance, which means weapons that work at such a distance."
Weapons for Ukraine
Ukraine received only 10% of the weapons it requested from Western countries, Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister Anna Malyar said, adding that "without the help of Western partners, we will not be able to win this war."
On June 15-16, Brussels will host the third meeting of the Contact Group on arms supplies to Kyiv. Its participants will discuss the supply of artillery systems, including advanced long-range weapons, a Pentagon spokesman said. Washington also expects that a number of countries will announce the allocation of additional assistance to Kyiv.
At the same time, the US Department of Defense announced its intention to transfer intelligence information to Ukraine for strikes using multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) supplied to Kyiv by the West.
The United States extended until December 5 permission to conduct energy-related transactions for Russian banks that fell under US sanctions, according to a distributed general license from the US Treasury Department. Transactions are allowed with the Central Bank of the Russian Federation, Vnesheconombank, Otkritie Bank, Sovcombank, Sberbank, VTB, Alfa-Bank, and any other organizations where they own a share of 50% or more.
German Chancellor Olaf Scholz said that as part of efforts to improve the effectiveness of sanctions against Russia, Germany will create a national register of assets that are subject to sanctions or have an unclear origin. It is also planned to create a special hotline for whistleblowers.
The US Treasury Department was forced to hire additional staff to develop sanctions against the Russian Federation in connection with the situation in Ukraine, First Deputy US Treasury Secretary Adewale Adeyemo said at a hearing in the US Senate Appropriations Committee. At the same time, the US administration believes that Russia has increased oil revenues around the world, while Washington aims to reduce them.
Moscow's response to London
Moscow, in connection with the anti-Russian actions of London, banned 49 representatives of the largest British media, the command of the armed forces, the military-industrial complex, and the UK defense lobby from entering Russia on Tuesday.

KYIV—Ukraine said on Tuesday its forces were still holding out inside Sievierodonetsk and trying to evacuate civilians after Russia destroyed the last bridge to the devastated eastern city in a potential turning point in one of the war’s bloodiest battles.

Russia said it would give Ukrainian fighters holed up in a chemical plant inside the city a chance to surrender on Wednesday morning. Fighters should “stop their senseless resistance and lay down their arms” from 8 a.m. Moscow time, Interfax news agency quoted Mikhail Mizintsev, head of Russia’s National Defence Management Centre, as saying.
Civilians would be let out through a “humanitarian corridor,” he said.
The city’s Ukrainian mayor, Oleksandr Stryuk, said: “The situation is very difficult but there is communication with the city” despite the last bridge over the Siverskyi Donets river having been destroyed. “Russian troops are trying to storm the city, but the military is holding firm.”
Ukraine says more than 500 civilians are trapped inside Azot, a chemical factory where its forces have resisted weeks of a Russian assault.
Evacuations were still being carried out “every minute when there is a lull and there is a possibility of transportation,” Struyk said. “But these are discrete evacuations, done one by one, and every possible chance is taken.”
Regional governor Serhiy Gaidai said: “The shelling is so powerful that people can no longer stand it in the shelters, their psychological state is on the edge. The last few days, the residents are finally ready to go.”
Ukraine still holds Lysychansk, Sievierodonetsk’s twin city on higher ground on the opposite bank. But with all the bridges now cut, its forces acknowledge a threat that they could be encircled in Sievierodonetsk. Russia’s separatist proxies said any Ukrainian troops left behind must surrender or die.

- Damien Megrou, the spokesperson for a unit of foreign volunteers helping to defend Sievierodonetsk, said there was a risk of leaving “a large pocket of Ukrainian defenders cut off from the rest of the Ukrainian troops”—as in Mariupol, the Black Sea port that surrendered last month after months of Russian siege.
The battle for Sievierodonetsk—a city of barely more than 100,000 people before the war—is now the biggest fight in Ukraine as the conflict has shifted into a punishing war of attrition.
Kyiv has said it is losing a staggering 100–200 soldiers killed each day, with hundreds more wounded. In an overnight address, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy described the battle for the eastern Donbas region—partly controlled by Moscow proxies since 2014—as one of the most brutal in European history.
Russia gives no regular figures of its own losses but Western countries claim they have been massive, as Moscow has committed the bulk of its firepower to deliver one of President Vladimir Putin’s stated objectives: forcing Kyiv to cede the full territory of two eastern provinces.
Bigger battles could lie ahead for the wider Ukrainian-held pocket of the Donbas, nearly all on the opposite bank of the river that Russian forces have found difficult to cross. Ukraine says Russia is massing to assault Sloviansk from the north and along a front near Bakhmut to the south.
It has pleaded for the West to send more and better artillery.
Ukraine needs 1,000 howitzers, 500 tanks, and 1,000 drones among other heavy weapons, Presidential Adviser Mykhailo Podolyak said on Monday. Western countries have promised NATO-standard weapons —including advanced U.S. rockets. But deploying them is taking time.
Beyond the Donbas, Ukrainian officials hope that Russia’s focus on capturing the east will drain its forces from other areas and pave the way for counter-attacks to recapture other territories.

The bottom line is for the people to regain their original, moral principles, which have intentionally been watered out over the past generations by our press, TV, and other media owned by the Illuminati/Bilderberger Group, corrupting our morals by making misbehavior acceptable to our society. Only in this way shall we conquer this oncoming wave of evil.
