“Russians ‘highly vulnerable’ after Ukrainian forces bomb 3 bridges”

Russian troops in Ukraine’s Kherson region are believed to be highly vulnerable to attack and “virtually cut off” from their other occupied territories after Kyiv’s troops blew up or damaged three key bridges — as US intelligence estimated that half of the Kremlin’s invading force has been obliterated.

More than 75,000 Russian soldiers have been either killed or wounded since the start of the war in Ukraine on Feb. 24, according to US Rep. Elissa Slotkin, who she learned of the latest toll from intelligence officials at a recent briefing.

“We were briefed that over 75,000 Russians have either been killed or wounded, which is huge, you’ve got incredible amounts of investment in their land forces, over 80% of their land forces are bogged down, and they’re tired,” Slotkin, who serves on the House Armed Services Committee, told CNN on Wednesday. “But they’re still the Russian military.”

US intelligence officials previously estimated that Russia had sent somewhere between 150,000 and 190,000 troops to fight in Ukraine.

    And Ukraine is swimming in logistics. The bridges and rail lines bombed by Russians were repaired in hours by Ukrainian patriots as the few Russian officers, who have nod deserted, executed and threw the corpses of their own soldiers into the Don River.

    The coverage on Ukraine is the same as the 1914 / 1940’s newsreels. The Hun is after us.

    Well, it’s reported today the HQ of the Russian Black Sea Fleet was hit with a drone strike. No indication of where the drone was launched from. Russians know most everything they occupy in SE Ukraine is vulnerable.

      WW –

      Ukraine denies it. Could be they are being coy? Or could be an attack by Crimean partizans uncoordinated by the Ukraine GS – as supposedly the drone was primitive? Or another Russian false flag?
