Quote:
Russia's last independent channel, TV Rain, is back on air more than four months after being forced to close over its coverage of the war in Ukraine.

Known as Dozhd in Russian, it resumed broadcasting from Latvia, streaming a news programme on its YouTube channel.

Dozhd was blocked by Russia's authorities in early March - just days after Moscow had invaded Ukraine.

Many employees then fled Russia, and later started work on rebuilding the channel abroad.

Deceased Russian soldier's family uses compensation payment to buy new car 'in his memory'
10:04 am, July 18, 2022

On July 17, the state-owned television channel Russia-1 ran a story about Staff Sergeant Alexey Malov, a tank commander who died on the third day of the war in Ukraine. According to the report, Malov’s relatives have already spent the compensation money they received from the government for his death. “In memory of our son,” Malov’s father told reporters, the family bought “a brand new car.”

“The new Lada [car] was bought with what is popularly known as ‘coffin money,’ or, in official terms, a one-time benefit payment to the family of the deceased. According to his father, Alexey dreamed of a white car — and that’s what they bought. Their first trip will be to the cemetery,” journalist Sergey Zenin said in the report.

The website Smotrim.ru, which streams and publishes Russian state news programs, posted an edited version of the broadcast that didn’t include the story about Malov.

Sergey Malov’s death was reported in early March by Saratov regional governor Valery Radayev. According to the news outlet Fourth Estate, Malov served for nine years as a contract soldier in the 56th Guards Air Assault Regiment in Kamyshin, a city in the Volgograd region. His older brother is currently fighting in Ukraine as part of the same regiment.

Malov’s mother told journalists that she learned about her son’s death “bit by bit”:

They reported the official information to me, of course, but I didn’t understand any of the specifics. Later on, I managed to learn from the guys who served alongside him that he was critically injured while his tank column was moving. They were attacked from helicopters. He saved his commander. I don’t know if the [commander] survived, but I’ve been told he was badly burned. Alexey’s entire back was injured. But he was still alive. A nurse bandaged him up and brought him to the hospital. They say he asked them only to tell his wife and father. He was afraid of worrying me and afraid his brother would snap and try to avenge him. And he didn’t want that. But he didn’t make it to the hospital.

According to the car manufacturer’s site, the price of the model Malov’s family purchased starts at 698,000 rubles (about $12,000). The Russia-1 story didn’t specify how much money the family received in compensation for their son’s death, but according to Russian law, deceased soldiers’ relatives are entitled to a one-time payment and insurance coverage worth 7.4 million rubles (about $127,000). In March, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that victims’ families would be paid an additional five million rubles (about $86,000). Regional governments also issue families separate payments ranging from one million to three million rubles (approximately $17,000 to $51,000). In the Saratov region, where Malov’s family lives, families are compensated one million rubles.

(EU told to prepare for Russian gas shut-off - BBC News)

Quote:
The European Commission has urged countries across the bloc to cut their gas use by 15% from August to March amid fears Russia could halt supplies, saying the target is voluntary but will become legally binding if Moscow turns off the taps this summer.

Since Russia invaded Ukraine it has cut supplies to a number of countries which have rejected its demand for payment for gas in roubles, including Poland, Bulgaria, the Netherlands, Denmark and Finland.

The key Nord Stream 1 pipeline from Russia to Germany has been offline for maintenance for 10 days and is due to be turned back on this Thursday, but there are concerns Moscow will not follow through on its promise.

Ukraine war: Missile strike puts grain deal in doubt

A landmark deal to resume Ukraine's grain exports is hanging in the balance after missiles hit the port of Odesa.

Ukraine's Infrastructure Minister, Oleksandr Kubrakov, said technical work to prepare for shipments was going ahead despite the apparent breach.

But President Volodymr Zelensky said the attack proved Russia would find ways not to implement the deal.

Under Friday's deal, Russia agreed not to target ports while grain shipments were in transit.

In a post to social media, the Ukrainian military's southern command centre said two Kalibr missiles had hit the port, while two more had been shot down by air defence systems.

(Russia-Ukraine War: Grain exports could restart 'within days' – BBC News)

Quote:
Ukraine has said the first vessels with grain could leave its Black Sea ports "within days" under a landmark UN-brokered deal signed on Friday.

The deal is meant to secure safe passage for the ships and get supplies moving after the war with Russia cut them off, causing prices to rise around the world.

But many are still concerned over its success.

Russia fired missiles on Ukraine's main port of Odesa on Saturday, raising fears that the deal could be derailed.

A key bridge into the southern city of Kherson is out of action after Ukrainian forces struck it with long-range rockets supplied by the US.

UK defence officials said the city is now "virtually cut off from other occupied territories".

Quote:
Russian energy giant Gazprom says it is impossible to take back a turbine that is vital for gas supplies to Europe due to Western sanctions.

The 12m (40ft) turbine is stranded in Germany after returning from Canada where it was repaired.

Berlin insists the equipment is not affected by sanctions and accuses Russia of not honouring its contracts for political reasons.

The key Nord Stream 1 pipeline from Russia to Germany is currently running at 20% capacity, raising concerns over winter fuel supply.
