Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 11. Juni 2022

Angesichts des Wochenendes knapp und schnörkellos: Zum anhaltenden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 11. Juni 2022:

• Das britische Intel Update:

As of 10 June, Russian forces around Sieverodonetsk have not made advances into the south of the city. Intense street to street fighting is ongoing and both sides are likely suffering high numbers of casualties.
Russia is massing fires with its artillery and air capabilities, in an attempt to overwhelm Ukrainian defences.
Since April, Russian medium bombers have likely launched dozens of 1960s era Kh-22 (NATO designation, AS-4 KITCHEN) air-launched, heavy anti-ship missiles against land targets.
These 5.5 tonne missiles were primarily designed to destroy aircraft carriers using a nuclear warhead.
When employed in a ground attack role with a conventional warhead they are highly inaccurate and can therefore cause significant collateral damage and civilian casualties.
Russia is likely resorting to such inefficient weapon systems because it is running short of more precise modern missiles, while Ukrainian air defences still deter its tactical aircraft from conducting strikes across much of the country.
