DW News published this video item, entitled “Role of western intelligence under scrutiny, scale of release ‘unprecedented’ | DW News” – below is their description.

The United States and its NATO allies have stated publicly that they’re providing Ukraine with satellite images, intercepting Russian communications and helping to defend Ukraine from Russian cyber-attacks. But leaks and statements from within the US intelligence community are now claiming even closer involvement – like with the sinking of the Russian missile cruiser Moskva. The ship was struck by Ukrainian missiles, but there are reports the US provided information about its location.

This month the New York Times reported that the US had provided intelligence that helped Ukraine kill several Russian generals on the front lines.

03:37 Russian oligarch’s assets to rebuild Ukraine?

The EU Commission is moving to confiscate and sell — rather than simply freeze — the assets of Russian oligarchs. According to the EU, Russian assets worth 10 billion euros have already been frozen. Many in Brussels now say the money gained by confiscating the assets could be used to help rebuild Ukraine. But, some EU members – like Germany – are sceptical.
