Battlefield update:

Today 4 large 🇷🇺 ammo warehouses destroyed – to celebrate Independence day.

Vuhledar: 🇺🇦 bombing 🇷🇺 positions
Zaporozhye: 🇺🇦 slowly advancing (15km)
Kherson: 🇺🇦 slowly advancing, and heavily bombing 🇷🇺 positions with artillery
Melitopol: 🇷🇺 decided to use airport, it got bombed by 🇺🇦 several times. Dozens of killed, a lot of ammo blown up. 🇺🇦 methodically destroys all ammo warehouses. Fresh report of bridge blown up.


🇺🇦 retreated, front line now near Bilohorivka. As front-line getting straighter, 🇷🇺 will need to do frontal attacks, which by the example of Izium-Dolyna are not successful.
🇷🇺 achieved objective reaching Luhansk district borders (almost, still grey zone), while 🇺🇦 achieved objectives of damaging, delaying time to await western aid, and concentrating 60% 🇷🇺 forces here, to allow possible counterattacks near Vuhledar, Zaporozhye and Kherson. Month ago 🇷🇺 was attacking in 5 directions out of 6, now 3 🇷🇺, 3 🇺🇦.
🇷🇺 losses are in order of 3 brigades (2500 people) and 2-3 tank battalions. Total over 7000 killed. 🇺🇦 verifies it’s data through intelligence agencies. LNR militia losses are over 55%
🇷🇺 18th Machine Gun Artillery Division from Sakhalin (🇯🇵 Japan) got involved in 🇺🇦.
🇷🇺 200th Separate Motor Rifle Brigade is being refilled with “volunteers” from ship crews.
This shows damage done to 🇷🇺 army during capture of Sievierodonetsk/Lysychansk.
🇺🇦 will get territory back, but 🇷🇺 won’t get their killed solders back.
This is last large success of 🇷🇺 army, they will take some villages or small city, but that’s it.
Rubezhne-Sievierodonetsk-Lysychansk conglomeration is in size of average city. 🇷🇺 put a lot of effort, 60% of their forces, even hidden partial mobilization, 45k artillery shells per day, and it took 90 days (from April 4th) to capture. Even capture was due to 🇺🇦 retreat, 🇷🇺 attacked empty city for 2 days.

Crimea bridge:

🇷🇺 previously did emergency drill, now brought barge with mirrors to deflect possible missile attack. 🇺🇦 currently doesn’t have missiles to reach Crimea bridge.

Missile attacks:

Last week in 🇺🇦, 61 civilians killed, 131 wounded. 🇷🇺 started using missiles with cluster munition against Sloviansk and Kramatorsk.
Explosions in 🇷🇺 are in no way related, 🇺🇦 only strikes military targets. There have been situations, when 🇷🇺 citizens were hurt as a result of 🇷🇺 own anti-air missiles.


Tomorrow 🇫🇮 and 🇸🇪 signing NATO membership, without MAP (Membership Action Plan), they were accepted even being threatened. Now 🇺🇦 has extra arguments. 🇺🇦 constitution states, that joining NATO is 🇺🇦 objective. NATO is not united about 🇺🇦 membership, internal opinions differ. However, such resistance was also for accepting 🇱🇹🇱🇻🇪🇪 Baltics, 🇵🇱 Poland, 🇨🇿Czech, always some people think it’s unnecessary and complicated.
Real progress is 🇪🇺 membership, 🇺🇦 signing 10+ laws to speed up process. 🇪🇺 members have easier way getting accepted into NATO.


It turns out, there is not enough weapons in west for large continental war. 🇺🇦 needs much more than 🇦🇫 Afghanistan or 🇮🇶Iraq. Now some factories are working 3-4 shifts.


7th package is being planned to get reviewed (not accepted) in a month.
Problem is with filling natural gas storage in 🇪🇺, reports of storage being 60% full, it might cause problems, but not totally critical.
