Russia continues its offensive in Ukraine’s south and east, while Ukrainian counter-measures far behind enemy lines gain traction. Most notable is its suspected attack on Russian warplanes earlier this week at an airbase in Crimea.

Satellite images reveal at least eight Russian planes damaged or destroyed by explosions that hit the base on Tuesday, contrary to Moscow’s denials that any aircraft was harmed.

Concerns continue to mount over the safety of the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant in southern Ukraine. Meanwhile, Britain’s Ministry of Defense says Russia’s arms export industry is under strain.

Sullivan and Milley reaffirmed the steadfast support of the United States for Ukraine’s sovereignty and territorial integrity,” the readout said of the call with Andriy Yermak of Zelenskyy’s office and Commander-in-Chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces Gen. Valery Zaluzhny.
