    Latest videos suggest that Russia still controls it. Though, there is speculation that said videos are from yesterday.

    The crew of two cargo ships suffered from the shelling of the Ukrainian military in the Sea of ​​Azov
    The fire on board was extinguished, the movement continued.
    The Armed Forces of Ukraine carried out missile strikes on two Russian civilian cargo ships near the city of Yeysk. There are wounded. This was reported to ForPost by the FSB border control in the Krasnodar Territory.

    “The strike was made on the ships SGV-FLOT and SERAPHIM SAROVSKIY. To date, the fire on board has been extinguished, the ships have continued to move," the ministry said.

    The FSB added that the fire was fired from the Ukrainian city of Mariupol.

    The ship "Seraphim of Sarov" is heading to Azov. Oil and ore carrier SGV-FLOT goes from Georgian Batumi to Rostov-on-Don.

    Recall that a special operation was launched on the territory of Ukraine today. Due to the aggravation of the situation, the Federal Air Transport Agency "closed" the sky over the entire south of Russia for civilian aircraft.

    In the meantime, refugee reception centers have been set up in Crimea. All communal and resource services of the republic work smoothly.

    Questions posted earlier re missile attack on Millerovo Airbase:

    - base is 25 kms away from the border of Lugansk region occupied by the Ukrainian army
    - about 40-50 kms away from where that Ukrainian unit got ambushed crossing the border a week back
    - missile was the Tochka SS21 (replaced by Iskandler in the Russian army) max range around 120 kms
    - Ukraine has 1 brigade (12-18 TEL), 1 battalion reported to have been sent to the Donbas in the April build-up
    - missile would have had to have been fired from northern Lugansk at a 80-120 km distance
    - nearest S400 would be to the west of Rostov about 200 kms away away
    - would not be enough time to react
    - unit destroyed afterwards according to reports

    Atlas was the only one correct with any of his spins and takes. Garry b proved himself to be a total clown. This guy lives in a different reality from the rest of us.

    This is going to be a disaster for Russia. 20,000 civilians with automatic weapons taking up arms. How is Russia ever going to subdue this hostile population. Should have done this in 2014 where there would have been zero resistance. Untold are putting up more of a fight than expected.

    Germany Sought Energy Exemption in Russia Finance Sanctions

    The German government has pushed for an exemption for the energy sector if there is a move to block Russian banks from clearing U.S. dollar transactions, according to documents seen by Bloomberg.

    People familiar with recent discussions said other major western European nations hold similar views. One official said that conversations since the documents were circulated suggest the exemption is likely to be part of a final package of penalties agreed with the U.S. that would be deployed in the event that Moscow invaded Ukraine.

    well, they can just copy the tactics of the Orks in Donbas i guess, unliterary announce Kiev as an "ATO" area, encircle, and wait. Some random shelling now and then to discourage fighting maybe.. but.. oh, wait they do not have a border where they allies can send food. The people in the city was perfectly ok with that type of tactic before, they where falling over each other to "praise the heros" so they should not complain.

    Atlas was crying that Kazakhstan a western success, he was proven totally wrong when CSTO took that

    Atlas also claimed Ukraine would be a NATO member state and Putin had lost Ukraine forever lmao

    Western trolls tried throwing whatever would stick and like the CNN spin masters are going to look like dumb and dumber when this clears

    As for your predictions of civilians here you go:

    Russian special military operation in Ukraine - Page 37 Screen12

    You were absolutely wrong about Homel airport, VDV held it through the night , and now Kiev is facing envelopment from West and from Sumy direction and Chernigov

    Ukraine has fallen, and now you clowns can circle jerk about the next Putin failure

    (Joke apart day 1 is when all the forces are 100% ready and all present and most dangerous. We also know they didn't carpet bomb the area nor did they destroy all the AD).

    Exactly

    From wikipedia


    A legitimate military target is an object, structure, individual, or entity that is considered to be a valid target for attack by belligerent forces according to the law of war during an armed conflict.

    The general rule is that only those people fighting you are legitimate targets of attack. Those who are not fighting should not be attacked as this would violate their human rights. The Geneva Convention lays down that civilians are not to be subject to attack.


    https://www.bbc.co.uk/ethics/war/just/whom_1.shtml

    Who is, and who is not a combatant?
    While there is general agreement that only combatants are legitimate targets, the issue of who actually is a combatant is much less clear.

    Definitely combatants

    members of military forces

    members of guerrilla forces (even though not in uniform)

    anyone who takes up arms in the conflict, other than in direct self-defence
