So, what is the current situation in Ukraine?

Regardless of whether or not SpaceX gets financing from the US Defense Department, the company’s satellite internet service, Starlink, which offers critical communications services in Ukraine, will remain operational, according to SpaceX founder and CEO Elon Musk on Sunday.

A local of the Russian-occupied Ukrainian city of Kherson has detailed the difficult situation there, saying that residents are “emotionally drained,” the streets are deserted beginning in the middle of the day, and Russian troops are often seen dressed in civilian garb. A third party connected CNN with the lady, who spoke just before the Russian-appointed government in Kherson ordered citizens to flee as Ukraine counterattacked Moscow’s assault. All residents must immediately evacuate the city and travel to the east bank of the Dnipro, the government said on Saturday, citing the “tense situation at the front, the heightened risk of heavy bombardment of the city, and the threat of terrorist attacks.”
Using drones produced in Iran, Ukraine has been “increasingly effective” in deterring Russian strikes, according to the latest assessment released by the UK Ministry of Defense on Monday. The ministry claims that “Russia continues to utilize Iranian uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs), also known as drones, against targets across Ukraine,” despite the growing effectiveness of Ukrainian measures to counter the Shahid-136 UAVs. As stated in the most recent British intelligence assessment, “Official sources, including Ukraine’s President Zelensky, say that up to 85 percent of assaults are being detected.” Attempting to breach the tightening Ukrainian air defenses would undoubtedly cost Russia much in Iranian Shahid-136 UAVs.” They are probably being used as a stand-in for the dwindling supply of long-range precision weapons made in Russia.
