Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 10. August 2022

Im andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine bleibt der Hergang des Angriffs auf eine russische Luftwaffenbasis auf der Krim unklar. Russland meldet erstmals die Zerstörung eines von Deutschland gelieferten Gepard-Flugabwehrsystems, allerdings ohne weitere Belege. Der Sammler am 10. August 2022:

• Die Ursache der Explosionen auf einer russischen Luftwaffenbasis auf der Krim am (gestrigen) Dienstag bleiben weiterhin unklar. Nachdem die New York Times gemeldet hatte, ein ukrainischer Offizieller habe von einer in der Ukraine entwickelten Waffe gesprochen und damit einen Angriff mit Abstandswaffen implizierte, kommt jetzt die Washington Post mit der Information, es sei ein Angriff ukrainischer Spezialkräfte gewesen:

A Ukrainian government official told The Washington Post on Wednesday that an attack on a Russian air base in occupied Crimea was the work of Ukrainian special forces.
The official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak publicly on the matter, did not disclose details of how the Tuesday attack was carried out.

Andere Quellen zitieren wiederum die ukrainische Luftwaffe mit der Aussage, es sei ihr Werk gewesen. Die Verwirrung scheint von ukrainischer Seite durchaus gewollt.

• Das britische Intel Update:

Russian commanders highly likely continue to be faced with the competing operational priorities of reinforcing the Donbas offensive, and strengthening defences against anticipated Ukrainian counter attacks in the south.
To support the Ukraine operation, Russia has almost certainly established a major new ground forces formation, 3rd Army Corps (3 AC), based out of Mulino, in Nizhny Novgorod Oblast east of Moscow.
Russia likely plans to resource a large proportion of 3 AC from newly formed ‘volunteer’ battalions, which are being raised across the country, and which group together recruits from the same areas.
Russian regional politicians have confirmed that potential 3 AC recruits are being offered lucrative cash bonuses once they deploy to Ukraine.
Recruitment is open to men up to 50 years old and with only middle-school education.
A Russian army corps typically consists of 15-20,000 troops, but it will probably be difficult for Russia to bring 3 AC up to this strength, given very limited levels of popular enthusiasm for volunteering for combat in Ukraine.
3 AC’s effect is unlikely to be decisive to the campaign.

• Das Briefing des russischen Verteidigungsministeriums – darin wird erstmals die Vernichtung eines von Deutschland gelieferten Gepard-Flugabwehrkanonenpanzers gemeldet. Allerdings ist die Bezeichnung als 1 Gepard anti-aircraft missile and gun system supplied to Kiev regime by Germany zumindest irreführend, denn der Gepard ist eben kein Raketen (missile)-System. Da es über die Behauptung hinaus auch keine weiteren Belege gibt, weckt allein schon die falsche Bezeichnung Zweifel:
