Ukraine is on an 'irreversible' path to NATO, say members. But only after war with Russia ends10 July 2024 (LINK)

— The U.S., the Netherlands and Denmark announced that the first NATO-provided F-16s would be in the hands of Ukrainian military pilots by this summer.

— NATO also announced a long-term commitment of security assistance to Ukraine, and confirmed establishment of a new NATO center aimed at ensuring that Ukraine gets a more reliable flow of arms and training from members of the alliance. But the commitments still fall short of the striking power Ukraine says it needs to defeat the invading Russian forces.

— The final statement called China — which the West says provides components for Russia's weapons — a "decisive enabler" of Russia's war against Ukraine.

Dr. Kimberly Kagan founded ISW in May 2007, as U.S. forces undertook a daring new counterinsurgency strategy to reverse the grim security situation on the ground in Iraq . Frustrated with the prevailing lack of accurate information documenting developments on the ground in Iraq and the detrimental effect of biased reporting on policymakers, Dr. Kagan established ISW to provide real-time, independent, and open-source analysis of ongoing military operations and insurgent attacks in Iraq.

— A Ukrainian tech startup has created a new AI-powered drone that can identify and target things based on visual cues, such as specific uniforms. These drones can operate together in swarms and communicate with each other. The startup says the drones can make quick decisions on their own. But to avoid mistakes, such as hitting friendly targets, they need human approval before taking action.

Russia presses its offensive in Ukraine and issues new threats as the West tries to blunt the pushAP29 June 2024 (LINK)

— Russia took advantage of its edge in firepower amid delays in U.S. aid to scale up attacks in several areas along the 1,000-kilometre (600-mile) front. Relatively small units are probing Ukrainian defenses for weak spots, potentially setting the stage for a more ambitious push. Russia's offensive near Ukraine's second-largest city, Kharkiv, that began in May and worried Kyiv's Western allies has apparently lost momentum after the Ukrainian army bolstered its forces in the area by redeploying troops from other sectors.

Yellen says G7 $50B loan to Ukraine is legal, not 'theft' as Putin claimsthehill16 June 2024 (LINK)

— "There is no sense at all in which it's theft," Yellen told ABC News's Jonathan Karl when asked on "This Week" whether she has concerns about Russian President Vladimir Putin calling the loan "theft" and saying it "will not go unpunished."

— Members states of G7 announced Thursday an agreement to move forward with a $50 billion loan to Ukraine, financed by the interest generated on frozen Russian assets in Europe and the U.S. The proposal was led by the U.S.

— The proposal would use the interest generated on the frozen assets, which is about $2.6 billion to $3.6 billion a year, to pay back a $50 billion loan to provide to Ukraine immediately.

— "Russia's funds are sitting in cash, but they're generating income for the institution, which Russia has no claim on," Yellen said, "so there's no legal issue here. sAnd our allies, our partners, the G7 will provide Ukraine a $50 billion loan, which will be repaid over time from these proceeds," she added.

— A total of nearly ten million people — children included — are estimated by the World Health Organization to be at risk of acute Post-Traumatic Syndrome Disease (PTSD) in Ukraine. Meanwhile, some four million children across the country have had their education disrupted, and 600,000 of them are unable to access in-person school at all, according to UNICEF, the United Nations Children's Fund. In the city of Kharkiv, the only way children can safely study is in the subterranean tunnels of the metro, Ms. Brown said, having witnessed this recently, when she visited the underground with the city's mayor.
