Russia relies on Cold War-era Missiles that pose a’severe risk’ to civilians because Putin’s forces are out of modern weapons. This is according to the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD).

On Saturday, the government released a daily intelligence update that included new information about ‘intense street fighting in Eastern Ukraine’ as Russian soldiers were repulsed.

Antiquated Kh-22 Missiles From the 1960s Are Extra Dangerous, The Ministry wrote.

Russia will likely use heavy anti-ship missiles as it runs out of more accurate modern missiles.

However, it did not give any details about where such missiles may have been placed. Their range is approximately 600 miles (1,000 km).

MoD said:[They]They were originally designed to destroy plane carriers by using a nuclear bomb.

“When used in ground attack with a conventional warhead, they can be highly inaccurate. This could cause serious collateral damage as well as civilian casualties.

After signing a disarmament agreement, Ukraine had decommissioned 423 Cold War-era weapons missiles.

It concluded that Russia was likely to resort to inefficient weapon systems due its lack of precise missiles. Meanwhile, Ukrainian air defenses continue deterring the Ukrainian tactical aircraft from carrying out strikes throughout large parts of Ukraine.

The 5.5-tonne anti ship missiles, when used on civilians, could cause 'severe' casualties: MoD

MoD: The anti-ship missiles of 5.5 tonnes could inflict’severe injuries’ on civilians if they are used against them.

Ukrainian authorities have yet to confirm the use the 5.5-tonne rockets.

Heavy fighting continues in eastern cities Sievierodonetsk and Lysychansk, with flamethrowers allegedly used to target homes and wheat fields.

Luhansk region governor Serhiy Haidai wrote on Telegram last night that ‘many houses burned down’ as a result of Russian rampages in nearby Vrubivka.

Russian forces are also expected to launch a new offensive in Sloviansk, Donetsk.

Putin’s army shifted its focus to the east after it failed in an offensive against major cities Kyiv or Kharkiv.

Russia hopes to consolidate its territories and maintain its grip on Ukraine’s Black Sea ports.

Anthony Blinken, US Secretary of State, estimated that there were 20 million tonnes of grain in silos located outside Odesa’s trade center.

More ships are still stuck at the Black Sea port, preventing them from moving.

According to Mr Blinken, Friday’s statement stated: “President Putin has stopped food from being shipped. And he aggressively uses his propaganda machine in order to deflect and distort accountability. Because he hopes that it’ll make the world give up on him and end the sanctions.”

It’s also known as blackmail.

“The Kremlin should realize it’s exporting hunger and suffering far beyond Ukraine. There are countries in Africa who feel a large share of this pain.

Today, the EU President Ursula von der Leyen met yesterday with President Zelensky.

The picture shows her arriving at the Capital’s Train Station in a flak jacket. She later appeared at a press conference alongside Mr Zelensky.

According to Ms Von der Leyen, her talks with Zelensky today “will allow us to complete our assessment by next week on whether or not to recommend Ukraine for membership.”

Zelensky’s demand for a rapid entry to the European Union has been based on his desire to reduce Ukraine’s vulnerability geopolitically. This was made possible by Russia’s brutal invasion of February 24, 2014.

A decision for Ukraine to be admitted would not mean that the country will become a permanent member of NATO.

Each of the 27 EU countries would need to accept Ukraine’s candidate status. After that, there would be intensive talks about reforms needed before Kyiv can be considered as a member.

After the US’s pledge of rocket systems advanced and more munitions last week, Ukraine will likely provide a detailed list of its weapons and defense equipment to NATO at their meeting in Brussels on June 15.

Germany said that it will provide the most sophisticated air defense systems for Ukraine to protect its skies.

The Defence Secretary Ben Wallace paid a visit to Kyiv Friday to talk with Ukrainian officials regarding their demands for additional weapons.

According to an Institute of War Studies report, artillery and long range weapons may be the key to success in Ukraine’s east.

The report stated that Ukrainian forces will use all of the Soviet-era weapons and munitions they have, and would need constant Western support in order to transition to new supplies of ammunition and other key artillery equipment.

“Effective artillery is going to be more decisive in the relatively static fighting in eastern Ukraine.”
