    It is interesting that General Surovikin has a PP-2000 submachine gun with a silencer as his personal weapon.

    As an aside. How on earth did General Surovikin get to this level of authority with only those medals on his chest??? In the US military only General Eisenhower had similar after his successes in WW2.

    Video out there of the results of probably a SAM hitting a block of flats.

    Residents of Kiev getting it all ways now, mobilisation plus shit raining down from 30+ meters high from flats onto their, soon to be seized, US$ funded new cars. Very Happy

    ▪Ukrainian formations advanced 1.5 km north of Rabotino , taking landings. Reinforcements of special forces from among the 22nd detachment of the Special Forces and the 45th detachment of the Special Forces of the Airborne Forces were transferred to the site to help the infantry units, which, under pressure from the enemy, were forced to retreat.

    In the event that the Russian troops succeed in regrouping and seizing the initiative, it is possible to close the advancing enemy groups into a "cauldron" north of Rabotino - at least the RF Armed Forces have enough forces and means in the area.

    ▪According to (https://t.me/rusich_army/9576) the Archangel of the Spetsnaz , a concentration of enemy infantry was revealed near Nesteryanka : after a successful fire defeat, the Ukrainian formations were dispersed.

    ▪ Piatichatki is still partly in the gray zone, partly under the control of the enemy. There is no confident control of the RF Armed Forces over the settlement, the Russian infantry is working on enemy reinforcements trying to move forward.

    🔻In general, there are too many problems in the Zaporozhye direction, so the fighters, to put it mildly, do not pay much attention to the rebellious marches in the rear.

    So back to the front, what has been going on? The settlements near Zaprozhiye, have the Ukes been driven back? What about the Russian advance in Lughansk? What is the situation like at Bakhmut? I ask because I still can't help but think what we are seeing by Pirozhki and PMC Wagner is for show, for whose benefit and who is the intended audience (honestly at this point its too early to say) I don't know, so what is going on at the front?

    * 19:03 Zaporozhye direction. Everything is normal.

    Kherson direction. All as always..

    South Donetsk direction. Fighting. All under control.

    Donetsk direction. Fighting at Bakhmut. Everything goes ok.

    Svatovo-Kremennaya. Going forward. Marines are advancing in the forests on a daily basis.

    No breakthroughs, no super offensives.

    Someone said the Orcs crossed Deniper with Tanks ? And one hour after this event , all the Generals  kissed and made up ? Some say there was loss of life , a small number . Well in operation like this , absolute secrecy is key . You can not tell your troops " hey lads , we are all going on a sight seeing tour of Russia , " and expect some not to ask the tour bus driver , to stop en-route and buy some ice-cream ! Good to see some more Panzers , obviously coming in too close for the wild- life photographer  for close-up shots ! I think they have seen too many tourists , and are getting tame !

    That didn't shoot it down, you can see it deliberately flying into a target...

    There are not sensors on board a Storm Shadow to warn it of intercepting missiles so the likely hood that the SS dives on its target just as a Pantsir missile explodes next to it is pretty damn unlikely.

    That storm shadow was not blown to pieces but its ability to continue flying was taken away from it by an intercepting missile so it crashed into the ground soon after.

    Suggesting it wasn't shot down is coping to the extreme... a bit like Patriot batteries intercepting Kinzhals using their missile vehicles and radar to achieve the interception.

    The Storm Shadow was easily visible and was clearly being tracked by the system... there is no reason why it couldn't have brought it down in optical mode let alone radar tracking mode.

    It was rather close to the launcher by the look of things which is why the Pantsir exploded some distance from the SS, but after the SAM explodes the target starts to dive into the ground with its jet engine running at normal thrust by the look of it and it hits open empty ground, so I would say it was shot down.
