Russian forces destroyed five Ukrainian army command posts with high-precision weapons.
In an apparent attempt to stop the Ukrainian army from advancing on its territory, Russian forces have destroyed five army command posts with high-precision weapons. The strikes hit three storage sites in Zaporizhzhia and a weapons base in Kharkiv. A local mayor told reporters that the city was rocked by explosions earlier in the day. Meanwhile, missile strikes in the Odessa region killed 19 people and damaged or destroyed military equipment.
A Russian combat aircraft struck the temporary deployment site of the 1st battalion of the 28th mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian army. The Russian air defence system destroyed three rockets fired from the Ukrainian side. Besides this, the air defence systems have destroyed ten Ukrainian uncrewed aerial vehicles in the Kherson, Kharkiv, and Donetsk People’s Republic, according to Konashenkov.
In addition to shelling Ukrainian positions, the Russian forces also conducted aerial surveillance over the border regions. They shelled populated areas near the towns of Bakhmutsky and Kodama. They also shelled settlements in Spirne, Zvanivka, and Sivers. In addition, Russian forces tried to advance near the town of Stariy Karavan. However, they suffered losses and were forced to retreat.
Meanwhile, the UK has supplied Ukraine with a similar missile-launching system, the M270. The M270 fires the same types of missiles as the Himars. Ukraine has received three M270 missiles, and another three are on the way. In mid-July, Ukrainian forces began using the Himars to strike Russian forces. It is believed that the missiles have destroyed bridges over the Dnipro river, linking Kherson to Crimea. In addition to destroying the command posts in the eastern part of Ukraine, Russia is also pouring troops into the region.
Russian forces are slowly advancing westwards towards the town of Siversk in the Donetsk region
Ukrainian and Russian forces continue to face off in the western regions of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. Meanwhile, intermittent disruptions in utilities, telecommunications, and the internet continue to plague both sides. Some reports have also suggested a shortage of basic supplies in multiple cities. Meanwhile, the National Bank of Ukraine has imposed restrictions on the withdrawal of foreign currency. However, Russian forces are increasingly focusing on the battles for the towns of Bakhmut and Siversk, with further major assaults expected.
On Friday, Russian forces advanced westwards towards the town of Siverssk in Ukraine’s Donetsk region. The advance was preceded by heavy shelling of the area from the town of Lysychansk. The Russians also destroyed several heavy weapons and other equipment believed to belong to militants.
Despite their progress, Russian forces have not yet been able to take control of the entire region, which is crucial for Russia’s security. The Kremlin can still not fully mobilize its forces to crush the Ukrainian forces. Vladimir Putin tends to replace commanders who are not performing well. He replaced General Alexander Dvornikov after the first chaotic weeks of the invasion. Moreover, sanctions will increase Russia’s military budget and threaten its economy, making it even more difficult for Russia to carry out a costly and lengthy war.
Fighting between the two sides continues in the Donetsk region. Meanwhile, Russian forces have continued to increase the use of aviation and barrel and rocket artillery. They have also expanded their temporarily occupied territory. They have also conducted airstrikes in the villages of Verkhnokamianske and Ivano-Darivka.
Russian forces have forcibly deported between 900,000 and 1.6 million Ukrainians into Russia.
The Ukrainian government says the deportations are illegal, but the Russian Federation has denied the allegations. The deportations have occurred systematically since 2014. The United States and international organizations have expressed outrage at the number of people deported by Russian forces. The United Nations has warned Russia against violating international humanitarian law and the rights of refugees.
Most of the deported Ukrainians went through a screening process at the Russian border before being deported to various parts of Russia. They are separated from their family members and friends and are often afraid of what lies ahead. Some have sought help from international organizations to help them get out of Russia.
Even though the Russian army allegedly deported them, many of the people deported by Russian forces remain trapped in the expelled territory. These victims have lost their homes and are now stuck in unfamiliar surroundings.
According to Human Rights Watch, between 900,000 and 1.6 million people have been forcibly transferred to Russia from Ukraine. This is an egregious violation of war and human rights laws. At least 260,000 children are among those who have been forcibly deported.
