  • Another blow to the Kremlin’s version of the Moscow attack: Iran had warned Russia days before the massacre after interrogating an ISIS-K commander.

  • Jonathan Poquette, an American sniper fighting as a volunteer in the Ukrainian army, says that Kiev’s forces lack even basic ammunition such as bullets and grenades that they desperately need.
  • A group of anti-Kremlin hackers has stolen Russia’s prisoner database, hoping it can be used to glean more information about how Russian dissident Alexei Navalny died.
  • Russia’s attacks “almost completely” destroyed Kharkiv’s energy infrastructure. The latest strikes destroyed a large part of the city’s energy network, Mayor Ihor Terejov admitted.
  • Dmitri Liubinski, Russia’s ambassador to Vienna, accuses in a wide-ranging interview with TASS that Austria took a “particularly hypocritical” position after the terrorist attack at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow and that it is among a “hateful circle” of countries .
  • The Russian Foreign Ministry on Sunday evening asked Ukraine to arrest the head of the security service in Kiev and extradite him to Moscow.
