Russia Ukraine War News Today, Russia Ukraine Strike News Updates, Russia Ukraine Capture Live Updates

Russia Ukraine War Live Updates: Ukraine’s foreign ministry on Thursday posted an update on Twitter highlighting Russia’s losses since the start of the invasion. According to the ministry, at least 44,300 Russian soldiers have been killed. Russia Thursday claimed that Ukraine is preparing a ‘provocation’ at Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant on August 19, reported the news agency Reuters.

Russia has sacked the sitting commander of its Black Sea fleet Igor Osipov and named Viktor Sokolov as the new chief, said Reuters news agency on Wednesday, quoting a report in Moscow’s RIA that cited sources. If confirmed, the move would mark one of the most prominent sackings of a Russian military official so far in the Russia-Ukraine war. The Black Sea Fleet, which has a revered history in Russia, has suffered several humiliations since President Vladimir Putin launched the invasion.

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres is expected to meet Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan in Ukraine Thursday. The export of grains and concerns about the ongoing fighting near the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant will be on the agenda. It will also mark the Turkish leader’s first face-to-face discussion with Zelenskyy since the Russian invasion.

Estonia’s foreign minister on Thursday defended his country’s decision to bar Russian tourists, saying they are shirking their “moral responsibility” to stand up to Russian President Vladimir Putin’s regime and its “genocidal war” in Ukraine. 

The small Baltic country, which shares a 300-kilometer (190-mile) border with Russia, stopped issuing tourist visas to Russians months ago, and as of Thursday no longer accepts those previously issued.“Our idea is to give a signal to all our European partners, all our Western community partners, to close down our borders to Russian citizens, except humanitarian cases,” Foreign Minister Urmas Reinsalu told The Associated Press in an interview in Tallinn.
