Heavy Fighting Reported Around Pisky on the Western Outskirts of the city of Donetsk.






Wanted to wait and see but according to who you listen to, Pisky has either fallen a few times in the past four days or the Ukrainians pushed the Russian forces back to 2014 positions in some areas. Regardless heavy Fighting Reported.

Also the Russians struck the Zaporizhzhia Power Plant in Southern Central Ukraine.

Yeah that's what the Bellingcat investigation cites. I edited the entry as well, the first source I found stated he was Tuvan but the Bellingcat Investigation made no allegation from my reading of the article.

Eastory did a video Summarizing the Ukraine War in Aboot Ten Minutes (minus the sponsorship).


Thought he'd just cover the beginning bits of the War like Kings of Generals had to, but like most Eastory Videos, he was able to breeze through a huge amount of events and the like in a brief and efficient manner... which shouldn't be surprising considering how concise his World War Two videos tended to be. At least until May anyways.

United Kingdom Ministry of Defence Briefing Discussing the Redeployment of Significant Russian Forces to the Kherson-Zaporizhzhia Front in Southern Ukraine. Rob Lee and others commenting they find it unlikely that Russian BTG's (of which thirty plus reportedly located in Kherson alone) regularly contain 800-1000 troops as the UK MOD Briefing alleges.


Russia is Allegedly Stationing Forces in the Zaporizhizhia Nuclear Power Plant.


Russia is Focusing on Training more Drone Operators/Pilots (as well as bringing more Drones into Operation in Ukraine).


A Russian R-439-MD2 Satellite Communicatons Vehicle Reportedly Identified as Lost. Lost back in April or so in the Chernihiv Region but not Documented until recently.


Alleged account of torture and other mistreatment of Ukrainian POW's in the Olenivka Prison Camp (which was apparently struck by Russian Fires earlier in a False Flag Operation).

Short Twitter Thread Detailing New Equipment Being Pledged to Ukrainian Military recently. This includes Portuguese drones, 20 M113 APC's from Spain, 14 Iveco LAV III's from Norway, 12 German Bridgelaying Vehicles, 10 Specialized German Humvees with either ground radar or anti-drone EW equipment, and an unknown number of M1224 Maxxpro MRAP's from America.


Russians Supposedly Putting Up Radar Reflectors Near the Antonovsky Bridge Leading to Kherson. Efficacy of such measures is in dispute.


The mystery of the alleged Ukrainian anti-radiation missile wreckage.


Russian BMO-T Armored Personnel Carrier Destroyed Recently in Ukraine. These vehicles are apparently pretty rare and this is the second one documented as lost since the War began.


Vitaly Gura, a Collaborationist Official Was Apparently Assassinated by Partisans. He died later in the hospital. According to Nexta, he's the seventh 'high ranking collaborator' killed by Ukrainian partisans since the War began.

More info on the attack in Crimea:

Looks like it was a cruise missile strike by the Ukrainian Navy against a Russian naval aviation base/group.

Russia is claiming it was an accident, potentially involving some aerial bombs detonating. But no aircraft were harmed in the making of this accident.


The aircraft are probably already returning to their hangars under their own power.

Anyways here's a report of the aircraft reportedly at said Airbase that are all fine still.


Also the United States Apparently stated that targets in Crimea are fair game as far as they are concerned.

State of emergency got declared in Crimea over this.

It is possible, before the war Ukraine has had 2 missile systems with enough range in late stage of development - Hrim-2 and Sapsan. It's possible that over the last half year of rushing they have managed to finish a production run of one.
Also it could have been a drone:
Also some Russian bureaucrat did the meme of the occasion:

Nothing to see here, move along...

That's a lot of damage....
