Situationsbericht Tag 175

By Phil Bainbridge

August 17, 2022 - Russland beschuldigt die Ukraine der Sabotage, sie wäre schuld an der Reihe von Explosionen auf der Krim. Zuletzt wurde ein Flugplatz und großer Eisenbahnknotenpunkt gesprengt, alle Züge nach Russland mussten eingestellt werden.

Russia has also blamed Ukraine for explosions at a railway and the destruction of six electricity pylons from the Kursk nuclear power plant within Russia. A record number of cars were recorded yesterday on the Crimea Bridge linking occupied Crimea with the Russian mainland as Russian tourists appear to be fleeing the conflict.

Russian troops have advanced near Bakhmut and appear to have taken control of the KNAUF factory near Soledar, while heavy fighting in Sviati
Hory Park on the east bank of Siverskyi Donets River near Slovyansk appears to indicate that Ukrainian forces have crossed the river to engage with the Russians.

Finland is set to limit the number of visas issued to Russians to enter the EU after a rush of tourists using Helsinki airport as a gateway to European holiday destinations. Meanwhile Estonia has cancelled up to 50,000 visas.
