Update from August 6, 10:10 p.m .:

The Ukrainian General Staff reports that the armed forces in the defense of the Donetsk region are coming under further pressure.

However, successes have also been achieved.

According to their own statements, all Russian advances were repelled for the time being on Saturday.

Russian offensives in the direction of the cities of Sloviansk, Bakhmut and Avdiivka had been repelled, the Ukrainian general staff said in its evening report.

Fierce fighting has been raging around Bakhmut in particular for days.

The day before, the pro-Russian rebels had reported that fighting was already taking place within the city limits.

The information provided by both sides cannot be checked independently.

The small town is considered a cornerstone of the defense system surrounding the last Ukrainian-held metropolitan area in Donbass.

Should Bakhmut and other small towns fall, the way for the Russian troops would be largely free in the direction of Sloviansk and Kramatorsk.

Ukraine war: pro-Russian administrator in southern Ukraine apparently poisoned - partisan action?

Update from August 6, 1:25 p.m .:

The head of the military administration deployed by Russia in the occupied southern Ukrainian region of Cherson, Volodymyr Saldo, is in an artificial coma in an intensive care unit in Moscow with symptoms of poisoning.

"Today he was flown from Crimea to Moscow in an artificial coma on a special plane," reported the Russian Telegram channel Baza.

His condition is considered critical, poisoning is mentioned as a possible cause.

Saldo is in Moscow's Sklifosovsky Institute for Emergency Medicine - a special clinic that also specializes in poisoning.

He was initially hospitalized with suspected heart attack and stroke, but the suspicion was not confirmed.

Instead, the doctors expressed the suspicion that he had been poisoned.

His health deteriorated rapidly over time, putting him in a coma.

Saldo is considered one of the main targets of Ukrainian partisan activities.

Ukraine war: Ukrainian defense lines in Donbass under increasing pressure

Update from August 6, 9.45 a.m .:

According to information from Kiev, the Russian troops are attacking Bakhmut with all severity, a cornerstone of the defense system around the last Ukrainian-held conurbation in the Donbass.

"The enemy is launching an attack on Bakhmut, fighting continues," the Ukrainian general staff said in its situation report.

The day before, the pro-Russian rebels had reported that fighting was already taking place within the city limits.

The information provided by both sides cannot be checked independently.

The Ukrainian line of fortress Siwersk - Soledar - Bakhmut is now beginning to falter in several places.

Russian troops are also in front of Siwersk and Soledar.

However, the heaviest fighting is currently taking place around the Bakhmut traffic junction, which the Russians are shelling with artillery and tanks.

The fighting is also continuing in front of the former regional capital of Donetsk, which has been in the hands of pro-Russian separatists since 2014.

In the area of ​​the small town of Avdiivka, north of Donetsk, there had been several attempted attacks that had been repelled, the general staff reported.

In the south of the country, on the other hand, the initiative is passed to the Ukrainians.

There, the Russian troops concentrated on defending their positions in the occupied territories, according to the situation report.

The Southern Command of the Ukrainian military previously reported that it had destroyed at least six Russian arms and ammunition depots and two command posts in the Kherson region.

There is no independent confirmation for this information either. 

Ukraine war: Putin apparently forges new plans for the south

First report from August 6:

Munich – In the Ukraine war, a counter-offensive by Ukrainian forces is taking place in the south of the country.

Kyiv aims to retake the Kherson region, which had already been lost at the beginning of the invasion, from the troops of Russian ruler Vladimir Putin.

According to the British Ministry of Defense, Russia could now have new plans for the south.

Russia sends troops south - Ukraine attacks strategic targets in the region

Russian troops would "almost certainly" gather in the south, the British intelligence update said on Twitter.

The reason is either the Ukrainian counter-offensive or the intention of the Russians to launch a new attack in the region.

These are long convoys of tanks, artillery and other weapons that Moscow is sending to the south-west.

In addition, Russia will most likely send battalion combat groups from Crimea, among others, to the Kherson region.

Meanwhile, Ukrainian troops would focus on shelling bridges, ammunition depots and railway tracks - apparently in order to significantly disrupt Russian logistics and supplies.

According to the British MoD, Kyiv is also targeting the strategic rail link between Crimea and Kherson.

The ministry in London also announced a "new phase" in the war: the heaviest fighting would now gradually take place in a 350-kilometer front line from near Zaporizhia to Kherson.

Iranian drones for Russian troops - Kyiv reports 46 drones in Putin's hands

Apparently Iran has already supplied Russia with drones in the background of the Ukraine war.

This was announced by the US think tank "Institute for the Study of War" (ISW), citing the adviser to the Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy, Oleksiy Arestovich.

According to the Ukrainian diplomat, Tehran has already delivered 46 drones.

According to the ISW think tank, these are at least partly “Shahed 129” drones.

According to the think tank, Russia could use these to attack American Himars multiple rocket launchers.

It remains unclear whether Iran delivered more drones than just 46.

So far, Ukraine has relied on drones.

The Turkish Bayraktar TB2 in particular was used to great effect.
