The attacks last night against the key Russian naval base in Sevastopol are still burning as this is being written. Yet this was easily the most ominous event for Russian control of Crimea so far in the war—indeed for the whole Russian position from Crimea to the west (into Kherson). There are many variables that still need to be worked out, but assuming a few things (that the Ukrainians have the systems to keep this up, that the Russians cant fix their obvious air defense shortcomings, etc). I will touch on those points later in this post. However it makes sense to discuss what we have seen so far.....

Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday praised Elon Musk, calling the Teslaand SpaceX founder a “talented businessman.”

Putin made the comments at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok, Russia, as he spoke about Russia’s space program.

 

“Elon Musk ... is undoubtedly an outstanding person. It must be admitted. I think the whole world admits it. He is an active, talented businessman,” Putin said, according to a Reuters translation.

Britain’s most senior military officer, Sir Tony Radakin, said that Ukraine “continues to hold the initiative, it is pushing Russia back” in a short assessment of the current state of the fighting given at the DSEI arms fair in London.

 

Rejecting claims that Ukraine’s counteroffensive was struggling, he said “in the north they are holding and fixing Russian forces there and in the south they are making progress between 10 and 20km depending on how you judge it”.

 

Radakin, who is closely involved with advising Ukraine’s most senior commander Valerii Zaluzhnyi, said that Ukraine’s slow counteroffensive progress could not be measured by a predictable timetable.

 

“The idea that war is neat and tidy, and you can plan and predict it to the nth degree is nonsense”.

For the first time ever Ukraine destroyed a Russian submarine, In Sevastopol today The B-237 “Rostov-on-Don” diesel-electric submarine is one of the newest submarines in the Russian Federation, having been launched only in 2014. The boat is worth more than $300 million and can use Kalibr cruise missiles from part of the 533-mm bow torpedo tubes.

Not sure if we're allowed to think objectively on Ukraine anymore but this from today's Guardian tells a now familiar story.

And another familiar story. They don't call it the land of opportunity for nothing.

 

 

Ukrainian front line.

Bump.

 

While we wait on official confirmation of who they hit in the Sebastopol HQ strike yesterday, an update from Mediazona. Their recorded Russian casualties remain lower than the pre-offensive levels, with another 991 names added over the past two weeks (roughly the same as previous period), pushing the total number of names to 32,656.

 

Also, the number of KIA officers above the rank of major has hit the 300 mark.

Was thinking the same: like in the movies where they're following the bad guys in their SUVs across the desert.

 

Then patching the info over to the Ukrainian missile systems, which they provided/produced.

 

The accuracy in the clip I posted: you can see that one missile/bomb has already hit, and a second comes screaming in dead on target.
