The High Anti-Corruption Court of Ukraine on Sept. 5 further reduced the bail for Vsevolod Kniazev, an ex-head of the Supreme Court, from Hr 75 million ($2 million) to Hr 55 million ($1.5 million) in a bribery case.

This is the second reduction in Kniazev's bail.

In May the Appeal Chamber of the High Anti-Corruption Court refused to release Kniazev from custody but reduced the bail from Hr 107.3 million ($2.9 million) to Hr 75 million ($2 million).

Kniazev was charged with accepting a $2.7 million bribe in May. He was dismissed from his position through a vote of no confidence.

The National Anti-Corruption Bureau of Ukraine (NABU) reported in August that Ukrainian businessman Kostyantyn Zhevago had been charged with bribing Kniazev.

Macron: Ukraine must be allowed to strike bases on Russian territory from which missiles are fired.

"We think that we should allow them to neutralize military sites where missiles are fired, from where... Ukraine is attacked," Macron said at a press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz. "If we tell them (Ukraine) that you are not allowed to target the place from which missiles are fired, we are in fact telling them that we are providing you with weapons but you cannot defend yourself."
