An Ukrainian 20 old soldier killed five and wounded several others


An Ukrainian National Guard soldier, 20 old, has opened fire on his fellow soldiers. He killed five people (four soldiers and one civilian) and wounded five more, in the city of Dnipro, 500 kilometers (310 miles) southeast of Kyiv on Thursday morning. He fleed the scene after shooting. President Volodymyr Zelenskyy demanded the authorities to investigate and analyze the incident. The case of the incident is not clarified but it can be linked – as a stress trauma – to the actual political-military situation if the killer had psychiatric problems.The shooting took place as soaring tensions between Russia and Ukraine exist and until now nothing changed the situation. Tensions between Moscow and Kyiv are at their highest in years.


The United States and NATO sent a written letter to Kremlin saying, between others, there will be „no concessions” over Ukraine. Russian Foreign Minister Lavrov said Thursday the letter fails to address Moscow’s concerns over the eastward expansion of the military alliance. “There is no positive reaction on the main issue in this document,” Sergey Lavrov told journalists in Moscow. Russia has repeatedly denied it is planning an invasion. The Russian Foreign Minister conceded the responses by the US and NATO could lead to serious discussions but only on secondary issues. “All the papers are with the President. It will take some time to analyze them, we will not rush to any conclusions,” Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov declared. A new session of discussion was planified.
