The Russian Counsellor to the UN in Geneva says he is “ashamed” of his country

One of Russia’s most senior diplomats has resigned in the wake of Russia’s war in Ukraine.

Boris Bondarev says the war is “aggressive” and has criticised his nation for their violence in Ukraine.

The 20-year-veteran has resigned in protest, according to multiple media outlets.

Meanwhile, Ukraine is now the top recipient of U-S military aid, with America announcing a further 40 billion dollars for the war-torn nation.

Ticker News spoke with Mark Cancian who has decades of experience working in Defense budget strategy, war funding, as well as nuclear weapons development.

He says Ukraine wouldn’t have survived this long if it wasn’t for the west’s military support.

Cancian adds that as the war has changed, so have the weapons provided by the US.

The west has significantly funded Ukraine’s military might, with Russia saying the west is at war with Russia without having to step foot on the ground.

It’s understood the miners handed devices to those who were running a mining hotel.

They are also accused of stealing their expensive coin minting hardware, and stopping payments to their customers.

The scam allegedly took place from November to May, where the suspects worked with people who wanted to install their coin minting hardware in a mining hotel.

They were offered electricity prices that were below market value.

Electricity consumed by some of the world’s largest cryptocurrencies has dropped by nearly half.

But some analysts are doubting whether Russia’s comments are genuine.

Russia has targeted the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv, as leaders of the G7 meet in Germany

A missile strike left one dead, and six wounded after a residential apartment was hit. It’s the first such strikes on the capital in three weeks.

The city’s Deputy Mayor says four people were admitted to local hospitals, as authorities continue their search and rescue efforts.

It’s believed a 7-year-old girl is among those who are injured in the complex. Meanwhile, a missile funnel has been found in the backyard of a nearby kindergarten.

U-S President Joe Biden says the strikes are barbaric, but declined to comment on whether they were deliberately occurring because of the G7 meeting.

The Group of Seven leaders will ban imports of gold from Russia, the latest in a series of sweeping sanctions against the nation for its war in Ukraine.

Leaders will also discuss rising energy costs and inflation.

President Biden is also pledging 200 billion dollars as part of a global infrastructure package to counter China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

Meanwhile, Russia maintains the invasion is a special military operation.

The nation’s Defence Minister has paid a visit to Russian troops and giving medals to soldiers.

President Vladimir Putin says his nation will transfer nuclear-capable missile systems to Belarus in the coming months.

Belarus has been a close ally to Russia. The nation’s President travelled to St Petersburg for a series of meetings at the weekend.

Meanwhile, the G7 says there is one world leader who is missing from their high-stakes talks.
