Ukraine admits it can’t intercept Russian Kinzhal hypersonic missiles Russia's Kinzhal Missiles Can Be Shot Down By This Weapon, Ukraine Reveals Ukrainian commander has warning about Bakhmut Kremlin Cuts Off Wagner's Direct Access Chinese think tank predicts when Ukraine conflict will end – Nikkei Ukraine is 'battle lab' for testing Iranian weapons - US official U.S., Israeli defence chiefs voice concern over Iran nuclear program Biden's $6.8 trillion budget challenges Republicans, raises taxes on rich Belarus to impose death penalty for officials convicted of 'high treason' World's oldest diamond aged 3.6 billion years found in Russia Rare 3.5 metre smelly flower blooms in Netherlands Jubilant celebrations one day after Holi festival in India Spokesman of the Air Force Command of Ukraine Yury Ignat on March 9 said that the Ukrainian air defense forces are not capable of shooting down Russia's Kinzhal hypersonic missile.
"Ukraine's air defense systems are capable of shooting down cruise missiles," Ignat told Ukraine's Rada TV channel. But unfortunately, when dealing with Kinzhal and Kh-22 missiles we cannot counter these missiles because they follow a ballistic path. We don't have the ability to shoot them down." He added that the Ukrainian command expects the Patriot air defense systems to appear on the battlefield soon, but "they are not a panacea" because a fairly large number is required. The Russian Defense Ministry reported on March 9 that Russian forces carried out a major retaliatory attack on Ukrainian infrastructure in response to attacks Russia accused Ukraine of carrying out in the province Bryansk border.
The attack was carried out with precision weapons, including Kinzhal hypersonic missiles, against "vital Ukrainian military infrastructure" and defense enterprise facilities, the Defense Ministry said. and related energy base. The Ukrainian side had earlier announced that several explosions had occurred in a series of different areas causing damage to important infrastructure, including three thermal power plants. Kinzhal is Russia's most advanced airborne amphibious system with hypersonic ballistic missiles Russia's MiG-31K and MiG-31I fighters are Russia's chosen aircraft to be armed with Kinzhal hypersonic missiles which feature high maneuverability and radar stealth, and are designed to attack attack targets on land and at sea.
Kinzhal hypersonic missiles can accelerate to 10 times the speed of sound and hit targets at a distance of more than 2,000 km. This missile can penetrate any missile defense system, can be armed with both conventional and nuclear warheads weighing half a ton. At the same time, other Ukrainian officials are asserting that the Russian Kinzhal hypersonic missile can be brought down by the American Patriot air defense system.
A total of 81 missiles were launched in the latest large-scale missile strike by Russian forces. Including 6 Kinzhal missiles 28 Kh-101 or Kh-555 air-launched cruise missiles, 20 Kalibr sea-launched cruise missiles, 6 Kh-22 anti-ship cruise missiles, 2 anti-ship missiles Kh-31 ships, 6 Kh-22 cruise missiles and Kh-59 guided surface-to-air missiles. The Kinzhal missile, also known as the "Dagger" in Russian, was used by the Russian military during the first month of the war when it launched an attack on a military warehouse in western Ukraine.
The Stratcom Center of the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine recently asserted that "no other device can resist Kinzhal like the Patriot. The US Patriot air defense system is capable of intercepting ballistic missiles That is why this system needs to reach Ukraine as soon as possible.” Earlier, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov stated that the Patriot would "certainly" be a legitimate target on the battlefield for Russian forces. In an interview with Defense News on March 8, Assistant Secretary of the Army for Procurement, Logistics and Technology Douglas Bush said that he expected the Patriot systems to arrive in Ukraine in a very short time. early.
He added that US forces had trained Ukrainian fighters to use the equipment He said the supply of Patriot systems will not affect the combat readiness of the US unit. At a press conference on Thursday, March 9, the Director-General of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Mr. Rafael Grossi, spoke out about the current unstable situation of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in Ukraine, The plant lost all power after Moscow's latest missile attack. At the press conference, Mr. Grossi said: “This morning at around 5 a.m. local time, the Zaporizhzhia power plant lost all its power,
the plant's 750 kilovolt line was disconnected, the 330 kilovolt line was back up. The only one was also broken a few days ago and is being fixed. As a result, all 20 of the plant's diesel generators were turned on. And now there is only enough diesel for 15 days of operation.” He added that this is the sixth time the plant has lost all power. “If we let this go on over and over again, one day our luck will run out,” he said.
urge everyone in this room today and elsewhere to commit to protecting the safety and security of the plan We need to commit now. What we need is action. I will continue to carry out urgent consultations and contacts to protect this Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant. At the battleground of Bakhmut in the East, Ukrainian forces continued their efforts to protect the city against the stormy Russian attacks According to a recent share by the Commander of the Ukrainian Army - Lieutenant General Oleksandr Syrskyi, , the importance of Ukraine's control of Bakhmut is continuously increasing. Explaining this statement, General Syrskyi said: “The effort to defend the city every day allows us more time to prepare manpower and resources for future attacks.”
The official also affirmed: "In this battle, the enemy has lost the most skilled and elite army - that is the attack units of the private security company Wagner." Also in the announcement, General Syrskyi also quoted Wagner chief Yevgeny Prigozhin as saying that, if this force captures Bakhmut, they can launch a large-scale attack on land and in the air. According to the commander, this highlights the extremely important role of Bakhmut in the overall defense of Ukraine.
Experts and world military leaders have said that Bakhmut does not have much strategic value, a victory in this city is mainly symbolic for both sides. Russian forces launched an offensive to gain control of Bakhmut last summer. Wagner Group leader Yevgeny Prigozhin said on March 9 that he has been cut off from all communication channels of the Russian government. On Telegram, Mr. Prigozhin claimed that he was blocked by the Kremlin for publicly calling for the government
to provide more ammunition to Wagner. The Wagner Group has emerged as a major player in the war in Ukraine in the last months of 2022. Currently, Wagner is heavily involved in the battle for the Ukrainian city of Bakhmut Mr. Prigozhin has repeatedly publicly called on the Russian regular army in recent weeks to provide more ammunition to continue the offensive on Bakhmut. “In order to prevent me from asking for ammunition, they disconnected all government phone lines in all Wagner offices and units, and prevented me from doing so,” Prigozhin said. to important institutions”.
Mr Prigozhin added: "Now I can only ask for ammunition supplies through the media." According to Newsweek, Prigozhin's March 9 message was the latest sign of a rift between the mercenary tycoon and Russian officials, having previously announced on Monday that a Wagner representative had denied entry to the Russian military headquarters in Ukraine. For a time, Prigozhin was said to be a close ally of Russian President Vladimir Putin, but the think tank the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) said in January that the two had grown apart apart after he became president Prigozhin repeatedly issued statements condemning the Russian Defense Ministry. The problems started earlier this year when Prigozhin said his Wagner army was the party that took control of the city of Soledar. Although Prigozhin regularly criticizes Russian officials, especially Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the Kremlin does not often comment on him or the Wagner Group Asked by reporters about Prigozhin last October, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov called the mercenary leader "simply a Russian citizen" who "made a great contribution" to the country water. A top Chinese think tank close to the nation’s armed forces has predicted that the Russia-Ukraine conflict will end before autumn of 2023, Japan’s Nikkei newspaper reported on Tuesday, citing sources close to the Chinese government The assessment was issued by the Academy of Military Sciences (AMS), Beijing-based think tank that reports directly to the Chinese People’s Liberation Army nd regularly issues recommendations to China’s top military decision-making body The AMS forecast based on a military simulation of the ongoing conflict suggested that it would “draw to a close around summer 2023,” with Russia “having the upper hand,” Nikkei claimed, The AMS analysis prompted Beijing to come up with a peace proposal, the Nikkei claimed.
On February 24, the one-year anniversary of the conflict, China published a 12-point proposal to resolve the conflict. With this initiative, China sought to restore relations with Europe to ensure the continued flow of investment nd technologies to the Chinese economy, the media outlet said. Another of Beijing’s goals was to maintain friendly relations with Kiev, the paper suggested.
The Nikkei also claimed that Beijing was contemplating sending economic aid to Kiev as part of its peace plan. Success in the mediation efforts would also help China assume a more prominent position in the eyes of Global South, Nikkei said, calling it another reason behind the initiative. Moscow has the resources to continue the war in Ukraine for another two years, the Lithuanian military intelligence chief said today. Elegijus Paulavicius said this would also depend on "the support for Russia's military from states, such as Iran, North Korea".
Previously, the West has repeatedly accused North Korea and Iran of supplying weapons to Russia, although these two countries have denied. According to Lithuanian intelligence, Western sanctions have not yet been able to affect Russia's financial resources for the military operation in Ukraine Mr. Paulavicius said Moscow used "a lot of intermediaries" to acquire the technology under sanction The Lithuanian intelligence chief added that the Russian military is now adjusting to a long-term confrontation with the West and will re-establish its presence in the Baltic Sea. Russian officials have not yet responded to these reports. Yesterday, a US intelligence report suggested Vladimir Putin has calculated his best option is to drag out the war in the hopes the West will eventually pull back on support for Ukraine. It is also facing anger from China after it allowed the island government of Taiwan to open a representative office on its territory in 2021.
Russia has introduced personal sanctions against 144 government officials, journalists, lawmakers and other public figures from the three Baltic states. The Russian foreign ministry officials said all those affected were deemed to be "most hostile" to Moscow. The ministry said the move was a response to what it called active lobbying by the three Baltic republics for more sanctions against Russia and to their "interference in our internal affairs, inciting Russophobic sentiments". Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have been among the strongest critics of Russia's invasion of Ukraine. Last year, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania began restricting the entry of Russian citizens travelling from Russia and Belarus in response to what Moscow calls its "special military operation" in Ukraine. Poland and Slovakia have agreed to hand over Soviet-built MiG-29 fighter aircraft to Ukraine, Slovak Defense Minister Jaro Nad said on Thursday In a post on Facebook, Nad stated that a Polish official had approached him at a meeting of EU defense ministers in Sweden on Wednesday, confirming that Warsaw would agree to the joint provision of the jets to Ukraine.
Nad wrote that “it’s time to make a decision” on sending the planes, suggesting that both countries were still waiting for a green light from the US However, Washington has indicated it is unlikely to give permission. In an interview with CNN on Wednesday, Polish President Andrzej Duda declared that his country would donate its entire fleet of MiG-29s. Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki said a day later that Warsaw was “ready” for such a transfer, but would only do so as part of “a coalition with the United States as a leader.” Polish Foreign Minister Zbigniew Rau said on Tuesday that his government was “ready to deploy” to the US air base at Ramstein, Germany, from where they would be transferred to Ukraine.
The Pentagon rejected this proposal, saying it was “not tenable.” The Polish Air Force has 29 MiG-29s in active service, while Slovakia has 12 in storage. Recently, a senior US defense official warned that Ukraine is becoming a "war laboratory" for Iran to test its weapons outside the Middle East.

The official also reiterated earlier US assertions that Moscow was willing to provide advanced technology to Tehran in exchange for Iran's "lethal weapons".
The official's comments came on the eve of US Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin's visit to Israel Military cooperation between Russia and Iran will be discussed in the negotiations in Israel. Russia used Iranian-made drones to attack Ukrainian territory Last year, the US repeatedly accused Iran of supplying lethal weapons to Russia, Tehran later admitted that it sent drones to Russia but before the conflict broke out.

Austin said at a news conference "We remain deeply concerned about Iran's support for terrorism, its dangerous proxies, its nuclear program, Gallant said Iran is a threat to Israel and to the whole world. The United States is Israel's closest ally, and both countries have increasingly expressed concern about Iran's military activities in the region and its nuclear program In that zone, Iran insists it is completely focused on electricity generation and other peace projects. After meeting with Mr. Gallant, Mr. Austin stressed the mutual importance of the US and Israel to the democratic principles of the two countries. “As President Biden said, the miracle of American democracy and Israeli democracy is that both are built on strong, balanced institutions as well as an independent judiciary,” he said. create".

An international team of experts has discovered the oldest diamond ever in the kimberlite block in the Republic of Yakutia (Russia). It is believed that the found diamond is about 3.6 billion years old, Science in Siberia, a publication of the Siberian Branch
of the Russian Academy of Sciences said The age of the finding was determined by method of isotope dating. A growing mineral, olivine, took over the 0.3 mm diamond at a temperature of more than 1400 degrees Celsius and pressures of more than 5.5 GPa, the study says. This corresponds to depths of about 180 kilometres, where the lower boundary of the lithospheric mantle of ancient platforms starts entering into the depths of the region diamond stability. The most common type of rocks that carry diamonds from the depths of the lithospheric mantle to the earth's surface are kimberlites.
Russian and foreign scientists paid attention to samples of rocks and minerals of the lithospheric mantle in the Udachnaya pipe which is one of the largest diamond deposits in Russia, back during the late 1960s. A pair of rare tropical plants over three metres tall which give off a stench of rotting flesh and are known in Dutch as a "penis plants" flowered for the first time in the Netherlands. The first of the plants -- whose Dutch name comes from its Latin name Amorphophallus gigas - began flowering for visitors to the botanic gardens in Leiden on February 27 with the second following on March 3. For each plant, flowering lasted two days.
horticulturalist Rogier van Vugt told Reuters over a video call. "Most people have never seen anything like it. For us it's also special because it's the first time that this species blooms in our country," The plant, native to Indonesia, grows high enough to rise above the undergrowth in the Sumatran jungle, van Vugt said, adding that the unpleasant odour is meant to attract pollinating flies and bugs which normally feed on rotting flesh. The botanic garden said in a statement that different amorphophallus species had also flowered in recent years in Leiden.
