Germany pledges more weapons to Ukraine



Germany has promised to deliver more weapons to Ukraine, during his first wartime visit

Germany’s leader, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, has vowed to send more weapons to Ukraine amid Russia’s invasion.

The German leader spent the day with Ukrainian leader Volodymyr Zelensky, discussing the war-torn nation’s needs, economically and militarily.

Steinmeier openly condemned Russia’s actions and vowed to support Ukraine militarily.

“Today, Germany is one of the leading suppliers to Ukraine’s air defense.

Thirty Gepard tanks, three Mars2 multiple rocket launchers, several thousand anti-aircraft guns, one of the most modern air defense systems in the world, Iris-T.

I hope it will help to make people a little safer, to protect them from Russia’s brutal aggression.”

Previously, Steinmeier had been criticised for his close political relations with Russia. However, relations between Ukraine and Germany have now turned a new page.

Germany’s alliance with the war-torn nation is clear.

Dirty bomb claims

It comes as Russia continues to make claims about Ukraine planning to use a so-called ‘dirty bomb’.

They made the allegations to the UN Security Council but the west sees the claims as “pure misinformation.”

Russia has since notified the U.S. about its upcoming annual strategic nuclear exercise.

Pentagon officials have confirmed it is strictly a drill and they will be monitoring every move.

“Russia is complying with its arms control obligations and its transparency commitments to make these notifications.”

Don’t come back

Ukraine is pleading with its citizens who fled amid the war, not to come home.

The increasing attacks on critical power infrastructure has placed the country under significant strain.

The country has implemented scheduled blackouts to prevent the grid from overloading and to reserve energy.

The warning comes as the winter months approach.

“We need to survive this winter. [If people come back] the electrical grid might fail.

In spring, I would really like for us to work together to rebuild our Kharkiv region, Kherson region and the rest of our cities and settlements here in Ukraine.”

Dr Paul Lushenko is a U.S. Army Lieutenant who said democracy and transparency is impacted during war.

“It is true that in the times of war, the tensions between civil liberties and national security can be skewed.

“It’s not to say it’s without risk. There are several examples where several well-known international investigative journalists have been targeted based upon their reporting,” he said.

Why OPEC policy decisions will have a major impact on oil prices



Despite the fall in oil prices, OPEC and its allies policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.

In May 2023, the total number of rigs drilling for oil and gas was already down by around 7% when compared with its peak in December 2022.

Slower drilling activity eventually translates into slower production growth, creating a delay of up to 6 months.

In the meantime, high levels of production are keeping inventories elevated, especially in the case of gas, which is keeping prices under pressure.

OPEC and its allies are weighing the possibility of further oil supply cuts, despite the fall in oil prices.

OPEC+ and its allies led by Russia, pumps around 40% of the world’s crude.

So, its policy decisions can have a major impact on oil prices.

Bloomberg’s Senior Oil and Gas Analyst Fernando Valle joins us to discuss.
