Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 8. Juni 2022

Im andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine konzentrieren sich die Kämpfe auf Severodonezk im Osten und Kherson im Süden – wo beide Seiten nur kurzfristige Geländegewinne machen, wenn überhauopt. Der Sammler am 8. Juni 2022:

• Norwegen gab am (heutigen) Mittwoch nachträglich bekannt, dass das Land 22 Haubitzen des älteren Typs M109 an die Ukraine geliefert hat. Interessant aus deutscher Sicht: Die Ausbildung der ukrainischen Soldaten daran fand in Deutschland statt, wie das norwegische Verteidigungsminsiterium mitteilte:

Norway has donated 22 M109 155mm tracked self-propelled howitzers. The donation also includes gear, spare parts and ammunition. (…)
The Norwegian Army has recently replaced their M109 artillery guns with new artillery from South Korea, but still has M109 stored. 22 of these have been donated, along with gear, spare parts and ammunition. Norway has also trained Ukranian soldiers on how to use the system. This training has taken place in Germany. (…)
The artillery pieces have been shipped from Norway. The Norwegian government has waited to publicly announce the donation for security reasons. Future donations may not be announced or commented upon.

• Das britische Intel Update:

Russia continues to attempt assaults against the Sieverodonetsk pocket from three directions although Ukrainian defences are holding. It is unlikely that either side has gained significant ground in the last 24 hours.
While Russia is concentrating its offensive on the central Donbas sector, it has remained on the defensive on its flanks.
Ukrainian forces have recently achieved some success by counter-attacking in the south-western Kherson region, including regaining a foothold on the eastern bank of the Ingulets River.
With the frontage of the occupied zone stretching for over 500km, both Russia and Ukraine face similar challenges in maintaining a defensive line while freeing up capable combat units for offensive operations.
In the occupied Kherson region, Russia is forcibly aligning its administration with that of the Russian Federation by introducing the Russian rouble as legal tender and employing Russian teachers to introduce the Russian curriculum and language to schools.
Russia will highly likely claim its occupation of Kherson as evidence of delivering improved governance and living standards to the Ukrainian people.
