Russia takes losses in failed river crossing, officials say

Source: Associated Press

KYIV, Ukraine (AP) — Russia lost significant numbers of troops and important equipment when Ukrainian forces thwarted their attempt to cross a river in the east, British officials said Friday, another sign of Moscow’s struggle to win decisive victories and salvage a war gone awry.

Ukrainian authorities, meanwhile, opened the first war crimes trial of the conflict, in proceedings that will be closely watched by international observers eager to ensure atrocities are fairly prosecuted. A Russian soldier stands accused of killing a Ukrainian civilian in the early days of the war.

The trial gets underway as Russia’s campaign in Ukraine’s eastern industrial heartland of the Donbas makes faltering progress.

3. I watched the drone footage of this, you could clearly spot russian tanks hiding off road

as they couldn't cross the bridge, would make great targets for artillery or killer drones.

5. That *you* (or I) could watch drone footage of this

makes it butt-obvious that rules have seriously changed.

I can only imagine what Putlin thought when he saw the first footage of Russian armor being blasted by drones, and the video distributed worldwide. That is, assuming he was allowed to see it. Or could bring himself to see it.

Stacked up and immobile waiting to funnel over a pontoon bridge.
