But when will you be able to trust the truth of any number of losses on either side? Not until well after the war is over probably.

They are firing from secluded positions on shore. The missile has about a 2km range.

If then.

My rule of thumb is to take the geometric mean of the numbers given by each side. It has been remarkably effective in the past.

Cheap medium-payload drone swarms. 90% decoys loaded with rocks, 10% explosives. Overload the capacity of defenses to get a few effective hits to set off the Russian ship's ammo magazine.

It seems that Ukraine Marines are firing Ukraine's own Stugna-P anti tank missiles at small enemy targets offshore.

The videos I saw showed an attack on a Russian Raptor patrol boat. Some reports claim the boat was sunk. Apparently the Russians admitted the boat was damaged. One report said it had been towed back to port.

I would have found the online videos much more informative if I knew Ukrainian. I don't. The video at the Daily Mail appears to show two missiles being fired. After the first is fired, there is some excited shouting in Ukrainian which I will guess was something like "Got 'em!"

They've learned those are good on more things that just tanks. This particular solder followed a sniper rule: Don't move after you shoot...

Maybe it was "something something Russian Warship", Snake Island and all.

Misidentified initially as the Orsk, it's the Saratov that was sunk in a Russian occupied Ukrainian port. Two other ships are known to be damaged also in the same counterattack. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alliga...s_landing_ship

Russia is considered to have committed 148 crimes against journalists and the media in Ukraine. Averaging ~5.3 war crimes per day in that narrow category alone. https://imi.org.ua/en/news/russia-co...-large-i44608/

Run over deliberately? In self defense? https://www.dailywire.com/news/russi...ukraine-report

Russians banning Ukrainian language, censoring literature, in Ukraine. https://www.newsmax.com/newsfront/ru...Ref=revcontent

Apparently the extremely high casualties suffered by Russia's 37th Motor Rifle brigade had caused something of a morale problem. It seems their commanding officer, Colonel Medvechek, paid the price. He was run down by a tank operated by one of his men. His legs were crushed, and he later succumbed to his injuries. [W.C. Fields voice]It must have been an accident...[/W.C. Fields voice]

And now, Lieutenant General Yakov Rezantsev, commander of Russia's 49th combined army has been killed in a Ukrainian strike on the Chornobaivka airbase near the city of Kherson. It seems that Lieutenant General Andrei Mordvichev earlier met the same fate.

Rezantsev apparently is the sixth or seventh Russian general killed in the war. It seems that, four days into the invasion, he claimed that the war would be over "within hours." The war is now over for him...

There are reports that Putin is preparing to throw ten more battalions into the meat grinder.

This article posits the troops destined for the meat grinder will be Russian troops stationed in Georgia.
It also says the new troops will not change the current dynamic that much and will primarily be used to plug some serious gaps.
