Ukraine Krieg - Situationsbericht Tag 78

By Jordi Bou

May 12, 2022 - Während Finnland seine Absicht zum Beitritt in die NATO bekannt gibt,
meldet die Ukraine, dass sie russische Truppen im Osten zurückdrängen konnte und die Gaspipeline, die durch russisch-kontrolliertes Gebiet führt, abgedreht hat - für Europa taucht damit das Schreckgespenst einer Energiekrise auf.

The advance north to Kharkiv appears to be the quickest that Ukraine has mounted since it drove Russian troops away from the capital Kyiv and out of northern Ukraine at the beginning of April.

If sustained, it could let Ukrainian forces threaten supply lines for Russia's main attack force, and put rear logistics targets inside Russia within range of artillery.

Already, the governor of Russia’s Belgorod Oblast, Vyacheslav Gladkov, has claimed that alleged shelling by Ukraine has left one dead and six wounded. Ukrainian authorities have yet to respond to the accusation.

In the south, a Ukrainian commander holed up at the Azovstal steel plant, has made a personal appeal to Elon Musk to help his fighters leave the city securely.
