Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 3. August 2022

Nachgetragen fürs Archiv: Zum anhaltenden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 3. August 2022:

• Das britische Intel Update:

As a result of a Ukrainian strike against a Russian ammunition train in Kherson oblast, southern Ukraine, it is highly unlikely the rail link connecting Kherson with Crimea remains operational.
Russian forces are likely to repair the railway line within a few days, although it will remain a vulnerability for Russia forces and their logistical resupply route from Crimea into Kherson.
Russia has promoted the ferry crossing recently established to replace the damaged Antonovsky Bridge over the Dnipro river in Kherson as for civilian use, however Russian military forces will almost certainly utilise it for troop movements and logistical resupply.
It is likely that we will see an increase in civilians attempting to flee Kherson and the surrounding area as hostilities continue and food shortages worsen.

Zum Thema der russischen Munitions-Logistik gibt es hier eine interessante Einschätzung/Übersicht.
