    One of those 'it looked much worse than it was' situations. In terms of a wartime attack, giving Kiev a PR boost was about it.

    EDIT see post 978 below!

    Photo from the Sevastopol fuel depot after fire was put out. The report of 4 destroyed tanks, out of 18 tanks (I previously said 16 tanks, my mistake) seems true. One is totally destroyed and three damaged.

    That photo of the depot is identical to the one on Google Maps.

    I find it hard to believe that Google would have updated its imagery with mere day-old material. Their services lag behind by half a year, at the very least, usually more than 1 year.

    Off Topic Ukraine's defence ministry tweeted an objectionable image of a Hindu God. In reply to that a right wing Hindu group pasted these posters in support of Russia.

    The civilian casualty count has been very low in this conflict but mistakes can happen.

    I rather doubt anything the western media or Kiev has to say and would rather hear from the Russian side about what happened.

    The candidate for the presidency of Turkey and the leader of the opposition Rodina party Dogu Perincek stated during his speech that Crimea is Russia, DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions are also part of Russia.

    Unprecedented strike on enemy air defence - multiple S-300 launchers destroyed in Pavlograd

    According to Readovka's source, after the Russian Armed Forces carried out a night strike on the Pavlograd railway junction, eyewitnesses have reported a mass detonation of anti-aircraft missiles for the S-300 complex. According to our information, two divisions (up to 16 units) of S-300P were destroyed. In addition, supply vehicles with reserve ammunition were hit.

    A huge fire volcano has erupted over the city and the detonation of rockets has continued for almost an hour.
    The enemy's air defences are severely damaged.
