“Kim Iversen criticizes the flow of information from Ukraine and quality of war reporting at ‘piss poor.’
According to reporting by The Washington Post, Information about the location and movements of Russian forces is flowing to Ukraine in real-time, and it includes satellite imagery and reporting gleaned from sensitive U.S. sources. “The United States is not at war with Russia, and the assistance it provides is intended for Ukraine’s defense against an illegal invasion, Biden officials have stressed. But practically speaking, U.S. officials have limited control on how their Ukrainian beneficiaries use the military equipment and intelligence.”
On May 8th, the White House released a statement saying in part “The United States will sanction three of Russia’s most highly-viewed directly or indirectly state-controlled television stations in Russia – Joint Stock Company Channel One Russia, Television Station Russia-1, and Joint Stock Company NTV Broadcasting Company. All three stations have been among the largest recipients of foreign revenue, which feeds back to the Russian State’s revenue.”
According to independent journalist, Olga Tokariuk, Russia fails to make any significant gains in Donbas, heavy battles are underway. In occupied Melitopol in southern Ukraine, Ukrainian partisans reportedly blew up a Russian military train. Ukraine still needs more support to liberate its lands.
