Informe de situación - día 166
August 5, 2022 - Un tercer puerto ucraniano se ha abierto para embarques vitales de grano como parte de un pacto mediado por la ONU y Turquía, llevando la capacidad total de exportación del país a 3 millones de toneladas mensuales, cerca de la mitad de su capacidad en tiempos de paz de seis milones de toneladas mensuales.
An Iranian satellite launched by Russia from Kazakhstan on August 9 will, it is alleged, be controlled by the Russians for the first few months to surveil Ukraine, a claim denied by both Tehran and Moscow. The Iranian Space Agency has said “No other country will have access to such information, and rumors about satellite imagery being deployed in service of another country's military objectives are untrue”.
Both Russia and Ukraine are accusing the other over responsibility for the August 6 shelling of the Zaporizhya Nuclear Power Plant, in which a spent nuclear fuel rod storage site was hit and radiation monitoring sensors damaged.
A preliminary referendum date of September 11 appears likely for an illegitimate vote on the Russian annexation of occupied Ukrainian territory, although partisan operations appear to be forcing the Russian occupation authorities to frequently change plans.
