    The thing is, why would RU army accumulate all their forces in a place where they build defensive emplacements?

    We have news of the Azov Army Corp, which will be built from the backs of 3rd Army Corps,

    It is 5 divisions and 26 brigades being formed

    So we know that the south is manned by 150th MRD, 155th Marine Brigade, and other regiments from Eastern Military District

    What of the 3rd Army Corp? They could be manning the defensive positions near Tokmak

    And then you have another issue, over 100k in Belarus that went there months ago

    We have no clue the size of the force that is ringing Ukraine right now

    Also part of 8th CAA is 20th MRD reformed from brigade size

    We only saw but a taste at Bakhmut

    But I think professional contract units are in the south

    🌊🇺🇦🇷🇺🇺Vladimir Zelensky is shocked by the reaction of the UN and the Red Cross to the breakthrough of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric dam.

    He said this in an interview with Bild.

    The largest international organizations, according to him, either did not respond to the request for assistance, or it was essentially a refusal "in diplomatic formulations." The President of Ukraine said he was "shocked" by such a reaction.

    "What is happening now is a tragedy. An ecological catastrophe and a human catastrophe," Zelensky stressed.

    "People, animals died. From the roofs of flooded houses, people can see drowned people floating by. This can be seen from the other side. It is very difficult to take people out of the occupied part of the Kherson region," the NarcoFuhrer added.

    The first wave was destroyed at Orekhov

    A second wave has been gathered, a so called 10th Army Corp - to me it looks like ukraine will just start throwing every man to the line

    But the amount of weapons being used on the first waves is huge, I think the stockpiles of Vikhr, 152mm, FAB500 are such that the enemy does not even reach positions of the defenders

    We can confirm industrial production is high, and Prigozhin did a good acting

    It is slaughter out there

    A piece of metal now.

    23 tons of steel. That's worth some 23 000$ with the price of steel being almost 1000 per ton.

    With some 10 000 ukro loses of similar vehicles, Russia will have 230 million $ of steel to sell. Just need to pick it up on the ground like mushrooms.

    Watched ITV news on the TV tonight. They carried an interview of Sunak our PM in Washington. Asked if Russia blew the dam he responded along the lines of 'we don't know yet our and US intelligence are working on it'. This was 36 hours or so after the event.

    Given the number of satellites over the country the US must have known almost the instant any explosion took place, if it did and would have known if it was the Ukrainians who did it. The US will also know the Russians have similar knowledge.

    This is interesting as Sunak didn't just brush it of with 'it had to be the Russians they have been attacking civilians all along' but he said they were still checking. Are they planning to do a MH-17 stunt?

    The destruction of the Kakhovka dam today puts thousands of civilians at risk and causes severe environmental damage.
    This is an outrageous act, which demonstrates once again the brutality of #Russia’s war in #Ukraine.

    This is a map of the surface currents of the Black Sea.

    Experienced hydraulic engineers know that all the ice from the Dnieper always went to the Odessa Bay. And this card proves it.

    Thus, we have the fact that all the dirt, all the infection and all the garbage after yesterday's events will go to Odessa, then to the coasts of Romania, Bulgaria and further to the Bosphorus. Plus mines, which can be carried away along with masses of earth and dirt. Plus .... flooded cemeteries.

    To put the flooding in Kherson into some perspective.  Luckily it was "only" the top works of the dam that were destroyed, ie the main body of the dam below the water level has remained intact. The areas that have been flooded as probably best characterised as floodplains, so without checking a map, I'd expect that minimal population is located in the badly-impacted areas. There will be extensive secondary-degree flooding, but not the harrowing and destructive flooding that washes away whole villages (like what was seen in the Fukushima tsunami for example).

    I think we will see burned down L2 tanks later.

    Also, not CV-90. Look closely to the turret and cupola. And rear boxes and shape of the hole in the ass (no headlights)

    M113 derivative, YPK probably. Bakhmut (it was screencapped from road of death video) was where they got wrecked. Scimitars were also operating there, wrecks are deeper in the city, but they don’t look anything like that. CV-90s - most likely still not seeing the actual combat just yet
