Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 13. Juli 2022

Nachgetragen: Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 13. Juli 2022:

• Das britische Intel Update:

In the Donbas, Russian forces will likely focus on taking several small towns during the coming week, including Siversk and Dolyna on the approaches to Slovyansk and Kramatorsk.
The urban areas of Slovyansk and Kramatorsk likely remain the principal objectives for this phase of the operation.
Russia continues to seek to undermine the legitimacy of the Ukrainian state and consolidate its own governance and administrative control over occupied parts of Ukraine.
Recently this has included an initiative to twin Russian and Ukrainian cities and regions to develop post-conflict administrations and a decree to make it easier for Ukrainians to obtain Russian citizenship.
Anti-Russian sentiment in occupied Ukraine is leading to Russian and pro-Russian officials being targeted. The Russian-appointed administration in Velykyy Burluk acknowledged that one of its mayors was killed on 11 July 2022 by a car bombing.
The targeting of officials is likely to escalate, exacerbating the already significant challenges facing the Russian occupiers and potentially increasing the pressure on already reduced military and security formations.

In the Avdiyivka, Kurakhivka, Novopavlivka and Zaporizhzhia directions, the enemy continued shelling from barrel and rocket artillery along the contact line, albeit with less intensity. He also carried out airstrikes in the vicinity of Maly Shcherbaky, Mala Tokmachka, Kamianske and Novomykhailivka. Conducted aerial reconnaissance of the UAVs near Novoprokopivka and Mala Tokmachka.

In the waters of the Black and Azov seas, the enemy is keeping four carriers of high-precision weapons in readiness for launching missile strikes against objects on the territory of Ukraine.
In some places, the losses of the enemy exceed the manpower indicators, which significantly affects the general morale and psychological state and becomes a prerequisite for the refusal of personnel to further participate in hostilities against Ukraine. It comes to the point that russian command uses physical violence against subordinates.
