So this is one of the winners of @BoChildrensBook She is a UK based illustrator. She has won with the illustration about #Izum the town that was destroyed by the russian army, people were murdered, raped. A Ukrainian children's writer was tortured and killed there this spring 1/1
So the illustrator is drawing her memories from the #Izum town (not a year or two ago, but now, during the war), draw with soviet nostalgia, because her childhood was during that period, not saying that this is a Ukrainian town (because she left it and I suppose went to russia) 2
In the beginning of the war she drew the illustration to stop the war. Ukrainian soldier is fighting a soldier of unknown country, right? No other words of support of Ukraine or mentions that this is #russianaggression Nothing, just this picture. 3

Starting a new Rus-Ukr Thread.

The last one ends here
There's been a Ukr missile strike at Novaya Kakhovka in #Kherson region where a Saltpeter (Potassium Nitrate) warehouse was hit. Adjacent residential buildings were also affected. Reportedly a Himars was used.
Local authorities report dead & wounded. No numbers given yet
Just a reminder, Potassium Nitrate is what exploded in Beirut a couple of years ago

Back from travel, let's get to reporting on what doesn't get reporting. This morning, heavy #Russian shelling south of the Siverskyi in #Bohorodychne & #Svyatogorsk indicate fast advance on this sector. By the thermal footprint history, it appears RU now controls or is near
controlling Svyatogorsk (on the north bank), and is now attacking the south bank both here, and further west at Bohordychne. Both of these towns have river crossings that were standing as of our last information. Sat images from the 31st of May indicate the eastern bridge was
intact and the western one was likely standing. The UA forces may have blown them since (as they often do before retreating), but it seems likely that they did not as Russia is attempting to cross south at these positions. The strategic value is important. Earlier in the conflict

Second attempt at starting a new Russia - Ukraine thread....fingers crossed !

The original Mega thread ends here
There is talk that the Ukr CinC Zaluzhny & Zelensky had a meeting during which the withdrawal from #Lisichansk agglomeration was discussed.
The only feasible way is going by the road to Seversk which is not physically cut but can be shelled from Rus held territory

Wish to speculate that this report is quite wrong. Various reliable sources are reporting that #Zarichne & #Khotimlya have been captured by #Ukraine, after crossing the wide (dammed) Siverskyi Donets river, Though its possible that DRG units crossed for reconnaissance & sabotage,
I don't believe there is an actual bridgehead established there. Certainly not one with armored vehicles and a supply route. I commented earlier on this:

The thread's 1st images show that as of May 18th, the bridges at Staryi Saltiv & Rubizhne are still
destroyed. Though there is much cloud cover, no visible pontoon bridge is seen elsewhere on the river. What is perhaps more likely, and caused the misreporting, is that #Ukrainian DRG units crossed at the still intact bridge (at least as of May 13th) around Starytsya & attacked

It is not only the #Yampil front advancing on the #Russian side, but the operational pause on the #Izum front seems to be over, as heavy attacks continue from that direction. Pressure is being maintained on #Ukraine on the eastern front itself, & around the axis for a big, medium
and small encirclement. This is an effort to collapse #Ukrainian defenders. If they reposition to stop encirclements, their front can collapse. At the same time, even if they reposition, they are never sure which route #Russia is taking. The downside for #Russia is manpower,
of course, it is in very short supply as it is and it cannot concentrate it in one knockout effort, but with strategic surprise being so impossible in this internet age and level of coverage, combined with the slow advance speeds, RU is probably correct that advancing on multiple

Con't this prev thread.

Additionally, the increasing air superiority Russia enjoys in the east makes it difficult or impossible for large Ukrainian formations to move around in the east. Blown rail lines, bridges & incoming muddy season makes supply in the east difficult.
Russia has reversed many of its problems and heaped them on Ukraine by this withdrawal. It can regain the initiative and if it uses it intelligently, can deliver what is seen as a clear victory. However, it remains to be seen how drastic its withdrawal would be. Given the little
information available to me, compared to the Russian command, I would make this a fake withdrawal from the east bank. A sign that this at least being considered was the recent conquest of #Slavutych. Amazingly, the troops coming out of Belarus on the east bank could only approach Image
