That I can check off that square on my Bingo card now?

I was expecting a different type of spontaneous combustion but this might qualify!

They probably need large quantities on site if they expect to have any. On-demand deliveries aren't a thing with the Russian military.

You'd think someone is sending a message or something. I love coincidences. What is this, 9 or 50 lighting strikes or something???

17. A new report from NBC News reveals the extent US intelligence has been assisting Ukrainian forces.

As Russia launched its invasion, the U.S. gave Ukrainian forces detailed intelligence about exactly when and where Russian missiles and bombs were intended to strike, prompting Ukraine to move air defenses and aircraft out of harm’s way, current and former U.S. officials told NBC News.

That near real-time intelligence-sharing also paved the way for Ukraine to shoot down a Russian transport plane carrying hundreds of troops in the early days of the war, the officials say, helping repel a Russian assault on a key airport near Kyiv.

It was part of what American officials call a massive and unprecedented intelligence-sharing operation with a non-NATO partner that they say has played a crucial role in Ukraine’s success to date against the larger and better-equipped Russian military.

The details about the air defenses and the transport plane, which have not previously been reported, underscore why, two months into the war, officials assess that intelligence from U.S. spy agencies and the Pentagon has been an important factor in helping Ukraine thwart Russia’s effort to seize most of the country.
