‘No ceasefire in sight’ – UN Chief’s warning after Putin call



U.N. Chief, António Guterres, says the Ukraine war is “far away” after speaking on the phone with Russia’s Vladimir Putin

Guterres believes a peaceful end to the war is not likely anytime soon, following his conversation with Putin.

“A ceasefire is not in sight, I would be lying if I said it would happen.”

German Chancellor Olaf Sholz also spoke with the Russian leader and believes his “attitude hasn’t changed.”

“Unfortunately, I can’t tell you that he has now come to realise that it was a mistake to start this war, and there is no indication that new attitudes are now emerging…

It is still right to talk to each other and to say what I have to say on these issues from my point of view, because I am strongly convinced that Russia must withdraw … so that peace has a chance in the region, and every day it becomes clearer that this is the only chance. We have to talk about that, and that is what I have done.”

Future of the war

Over recent days, Ukraine’s counter-offensive efforts have proven successful, and have instilled hope back to Ukrainians.

Ukraine’s Volodymyr Zelensky has thanked his military, during a visit to newly liberated towns.

His speech was followed by a moment’s silence to remember those lost in the war.

Ukrainian forces are now turning their attention to the Luhansk region in the east, which is home to essential transport hubs.

In Russia, China’s leader, Xi Jinping has arrived in Samarkand, Uzbekistan. Here, he will meet with Putin, in what will be the first face-to-face meeting since the Ukraine war began.

The question remains, will China lend support?

China seeks to establish itself as EV leads



China’s dominance in the electric vehicle (EV) market is reshaping the global automotive landscape, as acknowledged by Elon Musk, who views Chinese car companies as Tesla’s most formidable competitors.


Beyond being a manufacturing hub, China has excelled in EV development, influencing the industry across resource refining, battery production, software, and manufacturing. Established brands such as Audi, Toyota, and BMW are now collaborating with Chinese partners for EV platforms, batteries, and production. This shift is evident in Australia, where China-made car sales have surged 16-fold in the last five years, and top-selling EVs are predominantly Chinese.

Leading Chinese brands like BYD, SAIC Motor’s MG, and Chery are making significant strides in Australia, with ambitious plans and models that outperform established competitors. China’s impact extends beyond its borders, making it a driving force in the global EV market, shaping growth, innovation, and competition in sustainable mobility.
