Media reports are contradictory, but it seems that Bakhmut fell to the Tsar for now. I hope all Ukrainians were able to leave and are safe – it would be a horrible fate to fall prey to Wagner’s mercenaries.
There’s movement on the issue of fighter planes; I hope we will be able to supply Ukraine with modern plans soon.
Our government is reneging on almost all climate goals and measures and doing all it can to ruin our children’s future. On September 15, there’s the next global climate strike, and it’s more needed than ever!
On a positive note, summer is finally here!
According to the WMO, it will probably be the last one we will be able to enjoy outdoors, though.
