• Das britische Intel Update:

On 30 June 2022, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced that its forces had withdrawn from Snake Island in the north-west Black Sea. The island was seized by Russia on the first day of the invasion and sits along the main shipping lanes to Odesa and its adjacent ports.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces conducted attacks against the Russian garrison in the past few weeks using missile and drone strikes. In addition, it used anti-ship missiles to interdict Russian naval vessels attempting re-supply the island.
Russia has highly likely withdrawn from Snake Island owing to the isolation of the garrison and its increasing vulnerability to Ukrainian strikes, rather than as a ‘gesture of good will’, as it has claimed.
Separately, Russian ground forces claim to have captured the village of Pryvilla, north-west of the contested Donbas town of Lyschansk. Intense fighting probably continues for the commanding high ground around Lyschansk Oil Refinery.

• Ein Nachtrag des ukrainischen Generalstabs zur Schlangeninsel im Schwarzen Meer, die die Russen nach eigener Darstellung als Geste des guten Willens aufgegeben hatten:

Die Führung der Streitkräfte der Russischen Föderation hält sich nicht einmal an eigene Erklärungen, die eine „Geste des guten Willens“ darstellen. Heute, gegen 18:00 Uhr, führte ein Paar Su-30-Flugzeuge der VKS der russischen Streitkräfte vom Flugplatz Belbek aus zweimal einen Luftangriff mit Phosphorbomben auf die Schlangeninsel durch, wo sie angeblich „ihre Mission abgeschlossen“ haben.

Dazu veröffentlichten die ukrainischen Streitkräfte auch ein Video, das den Angriff belegen soll.

• Aus den vom Bundeswirtschaftsministerium veröffentlichten Zahlen zu Rüstungsexporten im ersten Halbjahr 2022 geht hervor, dass bis Ende Juni deutsche Rüstungslieferungen an die Ukraine im Wert von 562 Millionen Euro genehmigt wurden.

• Die USA kündigten weitere Waffenlieferungen an die Ukraine an. Dazu gehören auch, wie bereits erwartet worden war, Luftverteidigungssysteme NSAMS, die wesentlich von Norwegen entwickelt wurden:

This afternoon, the Department of Defense (DoD) announced $820 million in additional security assistance for Ukraine. This includes an authorization of a Presidential Drawdown of security assistance valued at up to $50 million, as well as $770 million in Ukraine Security Assistance Initiative (USAI) funds.
The PDA authorization is the fourteenth drawdown of equipment from DoD inventories for Ukraine that the Biden Administration has authorized since August 2021. Capabilities in this package include:
– Additional ammunition for High Mobility Artillery Rocket Systems (HIMARS).
Under USAI, the DoD will provide Ukraine with critical capabilities to defend against Russian aggression. Included in this package are:
– Two National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems (NASAMS);
– Up to 150,000 rounds of 155mm artillery ammunition; and
– Four additional counter-artillery radars.
The United States continues to work with its Allies and partners to provide Ukraine with capabilities to meet its evolving battlefield requirements. In particular, DoD recognizes Norway’s cooperation to enable the historic provision by the United States of modern air defense systems that will help Ukraine defend against Russia’s brutal air attacks.

Ergänzung, weil das aus dem trockenen Pentagon-Text so nicht hervorgeht: die Flugabwehrsysteme kommen nicht aus Beständen der US-Streitkräfte, sondern werden mit Haushaltsmitteln bei der Industrie gekauft – nicht anders als das von Deutschland zugesagte Iris-T SLM-System. Klarer macht das ein Bericht von Stars&Stripes:

The United States will send two advanced air-defense systems to Ukraine as part of its latest $820 million military aid package, Pentagon Press Secretary Todd Breasseale announced Friday.
Ukraine will receive two National Advanced Surface-to-Air Missile Systems, or NASAMS, which can strike targets about 100 miles away. They will be purchased for Ukraine, rather than being pulled from U.S. stocks, according to the Pentagon.
“This announcement represents the beginning of a contracting process to provide additional capabilities to Ukraine’s armed forces,” Breasseale said.
