[News] Russia-Ukraine live news: Cuba denounces sanctions on Russia


Recommended Posts


Two drones have been shot down in the city of Sevastopol in Crimea when Russian air defences were activated, according to the regional governor.
Cuban President Miguel Diaz-Canel describes sanctions against Russia as “unfair” during a trip to Moscow, where he and President Vladimir Putin unveiled a statue of Fidel Castro.
Ukraine’s national grid operator says Russian damage to energy facilities is “colossal”, but dismisses calls for civilian evacuations.
Explosions have killed three people in two villages in Russia’s Belgorod region, bordering Ukraine, according to local officials.


A bipartisan group of 16 US senators has asked the Biden administration to carefully reconsider Ukraine’s request for lethal Gray Eagle drones to fight Russia.

The Biden administration has so far rejected requests for the Gray Eagle drone, that has an operational ceiling of 29,000 feet and can fly for more than 24 hours, basing it on concerns that the drones could be shot down and may escalate the conflict.

As Russia increasingly turns to kamikaze drones and attacks civilian infrastructure, Ukraine has strongly appealed to the US to supply it with powerful drones that can help them gain advantage in the conflict.

In their letter, the senators have given Secretary of Defense Lloyd Austin until Nov. 30 to explain why the Pentagon believed the drone was not appropriate for the fight in Ukraine.

As Russian attacks continue to affect Ukraine’s power capacity, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy appealed to the country to conserve energy.

“The systematic damage to our energy system from strikes by the Russian terrorists is so considerable that all our people and businesses should be mindful and redistribute their consumption throughout the day,” Zelenskyy said in a nightly video address.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal also reiterated the need to save electricity and said that because of the rising power consumption, emergency shutdowns may need to be carried out in addition to the planned ones taking place currently.
