Veteran Ukrainian fighter jet pilot Colonel Mykhailo Matyushenko was killed on June 26, Bucha mayor Anatoliy Fedoruk revealed in a Facebook post. Matyushenko, known by the call sign “Did” (Grandpa) was the head of the Ukrainian Air Force’s 40th Tactical Aviation Brigade, which guards the skies over the Ukrainian capital Kyiv. For their exploits in shooting down Russian aircraft in the early part of the full-scale invasion, the unit became known collectively as “The Ghost of Kyiv” – a mythical Ukrainian ace fighter pilot.

According to Reuters, scientists and experts are taking the news of the incident very seriously, and UN spokespeople have already warned about its catastrophic impact on the climate. “This is really bad, most likely the largest emission event ever detected,” Manfredi Caltagirone, head of the IMEO (International Methane Emissions Observatory) for UNEP, told Reuters. “This is not helpful at a moment when we absolutely need to reduce emissions.”

According to Italian publication La Repubblica, the key commands of the NATO member countries have received reports over the past few days regarding the movement of the nuclear submarine Belgorod, which can carry Poseidon torpedoes. The main difference between the Belgorod and all other nuclear submarines in the world is its potential ability to carry Poseidon nuclear torpedoes, capable of traveling hundreds of miles under water and causing "nuclear tsunamis" by exploding near a coast.

“The most important thing is not the simplified procedures for admission to NATO, which were applied to Sweden and Finland, but the consensus of (all) 30 (NATO) countries – the agreement that this country (Ukraine) can be accepted into NATO and the process itself should begin, despite the war,” Lithuanian Minister of National Defence Arvydas Anušauskas said.

A spokesperson for Kazakhstan’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs clarified that the war "doesn’t fall within the organization's area of responsibility.” Kazakhstan has refused to acknowledge the results of Russia’s sham referendums in occupied territories, though it has said it would extradite Russian citizens who flee to Kazakhstan to avoid mobilization, if given proper notice.

The company announced back in March that Disney was ceasing all business in Russia. The company suspended content and product licensing, cruise lines, National Geographic magazine and local content production, and stopped renewing licenses for its content to all Russian streaming platforms. The company removed the sites and When going to these pages, Russian users are now offered to choose another country from a list.

The company says it took this step due to the “impossibility of ensuring the effective work of employees.” The company noted 240 people remained working for it in Russia, mostly engineers. They will be relocated to other offices or dismissed by agreement of the parties. In March of this year, the company announced it would stop selling its products in Russia.

This move is directly related to Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, the company explained in a statement. Atlassian said that since March they have been taking measures against the Russian government and organizations that support the full-scale invasion. “Due to the ongoing actions of the Russian Government against the Ukrainian people and the compulsion of business to support this illegal invasion, we have concluded we can no longer operate in Russia at all,” the company said.
