Claims of High Oil and Gas Revenues Are Just Russian Propaganda

Russian Deputy Prime Minister Alexander Novak reviewed the performance of the country’s top energy sector in 2022. Moscow has prided itself on its oil and gas revenues that rose by a third from 2021.

Ukraine Continues Crackdown on Russian-Linked Orthodox Church

Ukraine is now clamping down on Orthodox Church linked to Moscow. Kyiv refused the Russian-controlled church’s lease on the part of the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra. The independent Orthodox Church of Ukraine held a Christmas service at the Kyiv Pechersk Lavra. This could be another step towards curbing the influence of churches affiliated to Moscow.

Russia’s Claim to Seize Ukraine’s Soledar Reveals Rifts Between Prigozhin, Shoigu

Russia’s Defense Ministry said in a statement that its troops had taken control of the town, Soledar but made no mention of the Kremlin-affiliated Wagner private military company, marking a years-long clash between these two.

A new chapter in the Russia-Ukraine war was a turning point for the security architecture in Europe.
