Today is the 30th day of WAR in Ukraine.
During last several days Russian troops had no progress on any direction, while Ukrainian army managed to make some effective counterattacks nearby Kyiv, Kharkiv and Mykolaiv. The cities that were supposed to be encircled in fact start breezing easier and that improves military and humanitarian logistics. North-west to Kyiv Ukrainian forces try to push invaders away from the city aiming to encircle some locations and liquidate them.
In many sites, Ukrainian citizens and soldiers continue partisan war against Russians, first of all targeting fuel and ammo supplies. Knowledge of the landscape and routes, mobility of groups allows Ukrainian partisans to keep the rears of Russians in constant pressure. Besides armed civilians, it is also Ukrainian Special Forces who make such raids. And these guys are very well equipped and prepared for such operations.
The most difficult fighting continues in Donetsk-Luhansk direction and in Mariupol. In that area russian forces enjoy domination in the sky and benefit from relatively short logistic chains which enable them to create serious difficulties for Ukrainian defense. Despite being 80% destroyed, Mariupol keeps standing and its defenders are the example of unbelievable heroism and military professionalism.
In the south Ukrainian forces keep on pushing invaders back. The airport Chornobayivka, located near Kherson, has become well known as a magic place where Ukrainian artillery destroyes Russian helicopters and vehicles day after day, but Russians keep on delivering them there allowing us to liquidate their air forces on the ground.
Another good news came last morning from Berdyansk, that is the second largest Ukrainian port on Azov Sea. It is located west to Mariupol and was used by invaders to deliver troops and vehicles by sea. Well, Ukrainian forces managed to arrange artillery strike, destroyed large landing ship “Saratov” and damaged two more Russian ships that left the port in a hurry. It is not the first Russian ship we managed to shot, but definitely it is the largest loss on the sea for them so far. Huge success for Ukrainian Army.
The same day Russians responded with missiles strikes on Ukrainian military infrastructure on the outskirts of Dnipro city. The rescuers are working there trying to find if any people survived. Black day for Dnipro.
Last days brought us many positive news from international fields. New sanctions for russia, its elites and their children. New packages of financial and military support for Ukraine now, funds to rebuild Ukraine when the war ends. And the smell of oil and gas embargo in the air.
We will win this war.
We will rebuild Ukraine.
We will start smiling again.
We are the nation. We are Ukrainians!
