Russia ‘failing’ as military launches new plan says minister

James Cleverly, Europe and Foreign Office minister, said Russia’s initial plan for a lightning war has “failed”.

Amid reports of a referendum in Kherson, he said the military is now hatching a plan to legitimise its invasion with a “faux election”.

But he told Sky News that the UK will not stand for the plan and called on the Kremlin to end the war.

Commenting on the UK’s new energy policy, he said “we must move away from gas and oil”.

By moving away from hydrocarbons he said it will deny Russia’s “income for this war”.

Roman Abramovich’s jet lands in Moscow after brief stop in Istanbul

A jet linked to sanctioned Russian oligarch Roman Abramovich landed in Moscow early on Tuesday, after a brief stop in Istanbul, FLIGHTRADAR24 data shows.

The jet linked to Abramovich, the owner of Chelsea Football Club, arrived in Istanbul from Israel on Monday, shortly after he was seen in Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport.

Abramovich was among seven Russian billionaires added to a British sanctions list last week to try to isolate President Vladimir Putin over Russia’s invasion of Ukraine. European Union diplomats have embraced a similar move.

The Russian oligarch, who also holds Israeli and Portuguese citizenship, has denied having close ties to Putin.

A photograph, obtained by Reuters, showed Abramovich sitting in Tel Aviv airport’s VIP lounge with a face mask pulled down over his chin on Monday.
