الغزو الروسي لأوكرانيا - اليوم 173

By Phil Bainbridge

August 15, 2022 - A Ukrainian missile strike which they claim destroyed the headquarters of the mercenary Wagner Group could hamper Russian advances in the Donetsk region.

Fierce fighting has seen Russia gain ground towards Bakhmut and Pisky, west of Donetsk city, but the Private Military Company was believed to have been co-ordinating their offensive operations in northeastern Donetsk Oblast from this HQ and Ukraine will be hoping the strike has a detrimental impact on their capability in the future.

Forty two countries have called on Russia to withdraw from Zaporizhya nuclear power plant, as Russian forces continue to use the site as cover from which to launch attacks. Ukrainian President Zelenskiy has warned Russian soldiers at the plant they will become special targets for their forces.
