Germany's Foreign Minister Joschka Fischer, who is on a visit to Kosovo, Yugoslavia, appealed to stop violence in Macedonia. He appealed to local Albanian leaders to "influence" the Albanian separatists in neighbouring Macedonia to prevent further military actions and possible bloodshed. The day before, being on a visit to Tirana, the capital of Albania, Joschka Fischer stated that "Balkan problems can only be settled through Eurasian integration."
The Ukrainian army is threatened with a new catastrophe and a repetition of the Azovstal situation. If in the nearest future the personnel of the military formations of the Kyiv regime do not leave Severodonetsk, then the group will be destroyed or captured. This opinion was expressed by correspondent Yevgeny Poddubny.
