Kyiv City Council terminates land lease agreement with Russian Embassy

On April 20, the Kyiv City Council terminated the land lease agreement with the Russian Embassy and asked the government to return the property to state ownership.

"Today, the Kyiv City Council terminated the land lease agreement with the embassy of the aggressor country, Russia," wrote Kyiv Mayor Vitali Klitschko.

In addition, the Kyiv City Council appealed to the Cabinet of Ministers to return the property of the diplomatic mission to the ownership of the Ukrainian state.

Israel instals a warning system in Kyiv

In May, the Israeli Home Front Command will test a warning system for air and rocket attacks in Kyiv that was developed specifically for Ukraine.

If the tests are successful, the system could be ready for use this summer. As Walla reports, in recent months, Israeli Home Front Command officials and their Ukrainian counterparts have met several times in Poland to discuss the details of the project.

Almost all residents who left because of the war have returned to Mykolaiv

Almost all the residents of Mykolaiv and the settlements of the Mykolaiv region who left the region after the start of the full-scale Russian invasion have returned home. There are now more than 400,000 people there. This was reported by the head of the regional military administration Vitaliy Kim.

"Since November 11, when the right bank of the Dnipro River in Kherson region and the city of Kherson were liberated, people have been returning. After February 24, 2022, there were about 200,000 people in the city, and now, according to mobile operators, there are more than 400,000, while the pre-war population was 460,000... Almost everyone in the region has also returned," Kim said.

Answering a question about the situation on the Kinburn Spit, the head of the regional military administration emphasized that the Armed Forces are working to liberate it from Russian occupiers.

Denmark and the Netherlands to give 14 Leopard tanks to Ukraine

Denmark has announced its intention to transfer 14 German-made Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine together with the Netherlands.

"This is a large donation from Denmark in a joint project with the Netherlands, where we are transferring 14 Leopard 2 tanks to Ukraine. Between now and the end of 2023, we will see at least 80 Leopard 1 tanks arrive in Ukraine and help support the ongoing fight for freedom," said Danish Foreign Minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen and Acting Defense Minister Troels Lund Poulsen.

China and Turkey refuse to supply weapons to Wagner PMC

The leaked Pentagon documents revealed information about arms supplies to the Russian private military company Wagner, the Financial Times reports.  

According to the Pentagon documents, representatives of Wagner PMC, which is controlled by Vladimir Putin's close ally Yevgeny Prigozhin, tried to buy weapons and ammunition from China in early 2023, but no arms deliveries from China took place at that time.

Meanwhile, in Turkey, Wagner's representatives tried to negotiate the purchase of drones, electronic warfare systems, counter-battery systems, and howitzer artillery pieces. They were also unsuccessful.

Instead, Pentagon documents contain information about arms supplies to PMCs from Belarus and Syria.
