10:00. Zelensky: Soon Ukraine will have two Victory Days, and someone will have none
President of Ukraine Vladimir Zelensky May 9 congratulated Ukrainians on Victory Day over Nazism:
“This is not a war of two armies. This is a war of two worldviews. Barbarians who bombard the Skovoroda Museum and believe that our philosophy can be destroyed with their missiles. We are fighting for freedom for our children, which means we will win. We will never forget what our ancestors did in World War II, in which more than 8 million Ukrainians died.
And very soon there will be two Victory Days in Ukraine. And who won’t have one. We won then. We will win now. And Khreshchatyk will see the victory parade – the victory of Ukraine! No one can annex the victory in World War II from Ukraine, which, as part of the anti-Hitler coalition, fought against Nazism. What is our advantage over the enemy? We are smarter than one book. This is a textbook on the history of Ukraine.
We would not know grief if all our enemies could read and draw the right conclusions. On February 24, Russia launched an offensive. Attack on the same rake. They are stepped on by every invader who comes to our land. We have lived through various wars. But they all had the same ending. Our land was sown with bullets and shells, but not a single enemy could take root. There are no fetters that can bind our free spirit.”

08:50. Borrell: EU should consider withdrawal of Russian foreign exchange reserves to restore Ukraine
European Union countries should consider withdrawing Russia’s frozen foreign exchange reserves and using them to rebuild Ukraine after the war (FT, UP).
EU diplomacy chief Josep Borrell said the US had taken control of billions of dollars of assets owned by the Afghan central bank, in part to potentially compensate victims of terrorism as well as humanitarian aid to the country, and it would be logical to consider the same move with Russia’s reserves:
“I would be very for it, because it is completely logical. The money is with me, and someone needs to explain to me why this is good for Afghan money and bad for Russian money.”
At the beginning of the war, the EU and its allies froze hundreds of billions of dollars of foreign exchange reserves held in the accounts of the Russian Central Bank. Russia said in March it had frozen about $300 billion of its gold and foreign exchange reserves, which total more than $600 billion.
Borrell said the question of how to pay for Ukraine’s reconstruction is one of the key political issues, given the incredible amount of money that will be involved. He would like the discussion about how to secure military compensation to come from Russia.
Borrell said the decision, if passed, would not be unprecedented, pointing to the US decision to allocate $3.5 billion of the frozen assets of the Afghan central bank for needs, including humanitarian aid and compensation for the families of victims of the 9/11 attacks. “This is one of the most important political questions: who will pay for the restoration of Ukraine?” Borrell said.

06:10. Britain announces new £1.7bn sanctions against Russia and Belarus
The UK has announced a new £1.7bn package of trade-related sanctions against Russia and Belarus.
The British government said: “This package of sanctions is intended to further weaken Putin’s war machine. This will bring the total value of goods that have been subject to all or part of the import-export sanctions since the start of Russia’s illegal incursion into Ukraine to over £4bn.”
It is indicated that the fee will be increased by 35%. The new import duties will cover £1.4bn worth of goods, including platinum and palladium, to prevent Putin from funding his war effort.
This is due to the fact that Russia is one of the leading platinum and palladium producing countries, whose exports depend on the UK. In addition, the country will ban the export to Russia of certain chemicals, plastics, rubber and machinery worth a total of 250 million pounds.
