471st Day of the War

Weekly update

The last days, without exaggeration, can be considered the most difficult for the Ukrainian people. As a result of the Russian operation to undermine the Kakhovka dam, Ukraine experienced the second-worst man-made disaster of the century. And again, through the fault of the Kremlin. Destruction of flora and fauna, pollution of the Black sea with cadaveric poisons/fuel oil, massive death of marine and terrestrial animals. Cities and agricultural lands are flooded. Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant under the enhanced control of the IAEA. And most importantly: 40.000 people were left homeless.

In the territories controlled by Ukraine, 9 deaths from drowning were recorded; 2 of the drowned people are volunteers who helped people evacuate. The death rate in the territories of Ukraine temporarily controlled by the Russian occupiers is much higher because the occupiers shoot Ukrainians who are trying to evacuate. Ukrainians are drowned and shot.

Let's move on to the losses of the invaders. The Armed Forces of Ukraine destroyed so many terrorists and their equipment:

  • 213.770 — personnel;
  • 3.901 — tanks;
  • 7.600 — armoured personnel vehicle;
  • 3.702/599 — artillery systems/MRS;
  • 209 — anti-aircraft warfare systems;
  • 314/299 — aircraft/helicopters;
  • 3.241 — UAV operational-tactical level;
  • 1.171 — cruise missiles;
  • 18 — warship/boats;
  • 6.410 — vehicles, fuel tanks;
  • 502 — special equipment.

It also became known that on June 8 in Hurghada (Egypt), a shark ate a Russian tourist.
