One of Australia’s leading international relations scholars says the Ukraine war could end this month

La Trobe University Professor Joseph Camilleri, who is one of Australia’s leading international relations scholars, says a ceasefire between Russia and Ukraine may be seen by the end of April.

Six weeks into the ongoing war, Ukrainian forces have re-taken the greater region of Kyiv, as officials accuse Russia of massacring civilians in the town of Bucha.

Images have surfaced online via Twitter, showing the extent of brutality the city faced by at the hands of Russian forces, with innocent civilians killed and bodies dumped in bushland.

Ukraine’s President Zelensky addressed the Grammys, where he urged people to tell the truth about the ongoing war his nation is facing.

Ukrainian President Zelensky, says “concentrated evil has come to our land. Murderers, butchers, rapists, looters, who call themselves an army and who only deserve to die after what they have done.”

However, Moscow has denied recent allegations labelling the footage of dead bodies in the area are being used as “provocations” by Ukraine’s Government.

President Putin’s forces continues aggression in Ukraine.

Will a ceasefire be reached?

Professor Camilleri says Russia “will eventually need to stand down” due to the amount of troops it continues to lose in the war.

He also expects the International Criminal Court (ICC) to convict Russia of committing war crimes, and agrees with suggestions that Russian President Vladimir Putin could be charged with committing such acts.

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.

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.
