Nikolayev authorities go door to door to test residents’ loyalty — authorities

KIEV, August 6. /TASS/. The authorities of the city of Nikolayev, where a two-day curfew was declared on Friday, have organized door-to-door visits to identify disloyal residents, Anna Zamazeeva, the head of the Nikolayev regional council, said on Saturday.

"They are coming to each apartment. They are looking at everyone’s ID and mobile phones, checking everything," she said quoted by the Ukrainian news agency UNIAN as saying.

She added that each city resident is subject to those checks.

On Friday, Vitaly Kim, head of the civil-military administration of the Nikolayev region, declared a curfew in the city for the weekend, until 05.00 a.m. on August 8. During the curfew, locals are allowed to walk their dogs and take children to playgrounds, but must have their IDs.

Earlier, Kim announced plans to seal Nikolayev off for a day or two days to "neutralize collaborators and traitors." He claimed that all the residents were under suspicion.

Something that will happen here in the future

MASSACRE IN UKRAINE



https://warnews247.gr/anthroposfagi-...top-epidromes/

The terrible losses of the Ukrainians in the last few days are due to the use of Iranian drones by the Russian forces in Ukraine!

According to V. Zelensky's adviser, A. Arestovich, the counterattack of the Ukrainian forces will not start as the Armed Forces of Ukraine are suffering losses, not only in Donbas, but also in other areas of the front.

According to Aleksey Arestovich, the reason the Ukrainian attack will not start is not the significant losses in personnel, armored vehicles, etc., but the attack drones allegedly transferred from Iran to Russia, which Russia "uses active” against the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Arestovich even counted them, saying that in total the Russian Ministry of Defense received 46 (forty-six) UAVs from Tehran, which are similar to the American ones.

Now these drones are chasing the Ukrainian army and the Armed Forces of Ukraine cannot go on the attack.

"According to some reports, it seems that their use has already been noted ... The Iranian drone is a weapon of a much earlier generation, " Arestovich said.

There is still no confirmed use of Iranian drones in Ukraine, but it is possible that Arestovich is right. The first week of August has been a nightmare for the Ukrainian Army with casualties mounting on all fronts.

The collapse of Ukrainian forces coincides with a total of 40 flights by Iranian Guard aircraft to Moscow.

Let's see what has happened in recent days in Ukraine.

Massive Russian attack on Zaporizhia

The Russian Ministry of Defense announced the results of a mass attack in the Zaporizhzhya region.

High-precision missiles of the Russian Aerospace Forces struck the temporary deployment points of two artillery battalions of the 44th artillery brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and missile and weapons depots in the Novoivanovka district of Zaporizhzhya.

Up to 150 soldiers, two US M777 howitzers, 1,500 rounds of ammunition, six Msta-Bs, eight guns of various calibers, about 350 missiles for Grad systems and seven unmanned aerial vehicles were destroyed.

Aviation, missile forces and artillery continue to strike military installations on the territory of Ukraine.

-During the day were hit: four command posts, including the 58th mechanized infantry brigade in the Artyomovsk region, the 54th mechanized brigade in the Seversk region of the Donetsk People's Republic, the temporary deployment point of the nationalist formation in the area of ​​the village of Vyvodovo, in the Dnepropetrovsk region, as well as personnel and military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 182 regions.

-Two missile and ammunition depots were destroyed in the Konstantinovka and Artyomovsk districts of the Donetsk People's Republic.

300 "Foreign Legion" soldiers killed - 1030 dead Ukrainians

Near Nikolaev, a large group of "Foreign Legion" mercenaries was killed.

"High-precision weapons of the Russian Aerospace Forces hit the site of the temporary deployment of the Ukrainian "Foreign Legion" near the city of Nikolaev. Up to 250 mercenaries and more than 20 units of military equipment were destroyed, " the Russian Defense Ministry said in an official statement.

Russian sources comment that the "clearing of such large enemy formations shows that the position of the Ukrainian army in the front-line areas is critical, which may provide an opportunity for a massive attack on Nikolaev and in other directions."

In addition, it became known that up to 50 foreign mercenaries were killed in the Maryinka region, along with 130 Ukrainian soldiers.

At the same time, the Ukrainian army is suffering heavy losses in the Kharkiv area. As a result of precision weapon strikes of the Russian Aerospace Forces, up to 500 soldiers of the 92nd mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were killed while a large amount of military equipment was destroyed.

At the same time, 400 Ukrainian soldiers were killed at their assembly point in Konstantinovka shortly before they left for the front.

The Russians note that an extremely unfavorable situation is developing for the Armed Forces of Ukraine in all directions of the front, and, of course, there is no talk of a possible counterattack by Ukrainian troops.

24 hours ago, the Russians launched an incendiary attack against Ukrainian positions in Nikopol

M777s, HIMARS and Harpoon launchers were destroyed

On August 2, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu himself announced that:

During a special military operation, the Russian army destroyed 33 American howitzers, 5 launchers of the Harpoon anti-missile system, as well as 6 HIMARS MLRS launchers and more than 200 missiles for this system.

" In total, 33 American M777 howitzers, five Harpoon anti-ship system launchers, as well as six launchers with more than two hundred HIMARS multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) missiles were destroyed as a result of strikes by Russian forces on military installations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine" ,

The head of the Russian Defense Ministry also informed that in the last two weeks, the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost 396 Javelin and NLAW anti-tank missile systems and 125 Stinger-type man-portable air defense systems.

A group of Spanish-speaking mercenaries was killed in Kharkiv

Near Kharkiv, artillery of the allied forces of Russia and the Donetsk-Lugansk People's Republics hit the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. A group of foreign mercenaries was destroyed by artillery fire.

The unit, staffed by Spanish speakers, was located in the village of Lozovaya. According to Russian sources, the mercenaries were killed on July 30. Five people were killed, about ten foreigners were injured.

Via radio, the Russian military managed to detect the mercenaries' conversations in Spanish. The group of foreigners was identified by the intelligence services. Immediately her coordinates were transferred to artillery units and an attack followed

It is not yet known what nationality the dead and injured mercenaries had. Among Spanish-speaking countries, Colombia has previously been identified as sending mercenaries to Ukraine.

But they could have been Spanish, since Spain, as a NATO country, also provides support to Kyiv.

And the carnage continues…

According to the latest update from the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

As a result of a high-precision strike by the Russian Aerospace Forces on the temporary deployment point of the 81st brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Nikolaevka, Donetsk People's Republic, more than 50 nationalists and six vehicles were destroyed.

Long-range rockets near the village of Radehiv, in the Lviv region, destroyed a storage base for foreign-made weapons and ammunition. The weapons were going to Kyiv through Poland.

In the area of ​​Nortsovka settlement, Kharkiv region, due to the heavy losses from artillery fire, the commanders of the units of the 132nd reconnaissance battalion refused to obey the command's orders and left the temporary deployment point.

Aviation, missile forces and artillery continue to strike military installations on the territory of Ukraine.

-During the day three command posts were hit, including the battalion of the 72nd mechanized brigade in the area of ​​the village of Veselaya Dolina of the Donetsk People's Republic and the 65th mechanized brigade in the Yulyevka district of Zaporizhzhya, as well as personnel and military equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 133 regions.

-Four missile and artillery depots were destroyed in the areas of settlements Varvarovka, Mykolaiv region, Artyomovsk, Vodiane, Ocheretino, Donetsk People's Republic, as well as a fuel storage facility in Galitsynovo region, Mykolaiv region.

"Russia changes head of Black Sea Fleet amid Crimea strikes"

To the left is a photo of Admiral Igor Osipov, who has commanded the Russian Black Sea Fleet. To the right is a photo of Vice Admiral Viktor Sokolov; it is said that he has been named to replace Osipov. The photos of both were posted to the Wiki articles about them.

The Kremlin has reportedly ousted the head of its Black Sea Fleet after a series of apparent Ukrainian attacks on occupied Crimea, where the fleet is based.

Vice-Admiral Viktor Sokolov was made head of the fleet Wednesday, Russian state-run outlet RIA reported, citing unnamed sources. Sokolov ousts Admiral Igor Osipov, who’s commanded the fleet since 2019.

The leadership change comes as Russian momentum in Ukraine had reached a crawl, and a series of explosions in Crimea hint at the start of a Ukrainian counteroffensive.

The fleet gained a black eye in April after Ukrainian anti-ship missiles sank its flagship, the Moskva.
