  1. More bridge damage footage.
  2. Apparent image of the damage to the Kherson railway bridge.
  3. Good to see the restoration of the ancient kingdom of Wessex is part of Putin's long term plans.
  4. It's apparently a synthetic aperture radar image, which I guess explains the low resolution. I have no idea about the practicalities of building a pontoon bridge there but it does look like they've chosen a relatively narrow section of river. I'm sure the future will only hold good things for this bridge.
  5. There is a ferry of sorts running now. I don't think it'll replace the capacity of a bridge though. Doing this or trying to build a pontoon bridge under drone observation and in range of Ukrainian artillery doesn't seem to be sustainable in the long term either.
  6. It's not been as badly damaged yet but it's every bit as vulnerable. It's also further North and traffic heading from there to Kherson has to pass over another bridge which has also been hit.
  7. Yes. It got HIMARSed a couple of days ago.
  8. A structural engineer analyses damage to the bridge at Kherson. tl;dr - it's fecked.
  9. The more it gets hit and the more they patch it up, the more questionable those repairs become as well. According to this, the bridge is currently completely closed.
  10. The bridge at Kherson got hit again. It might be a bit harder to patch up this time.
  11. I'm curious what people on here think Zalensky implementing the Minsk agreements in full would look like. Here's what they actually look like: https://www.firstpost.com/world/ukraine-russia-crisis-understanding-minsk-agreement-and-why-failed-to-resolve-conflict-10397551.html I'm pretty sure that Russia and its proxies didn't do too well in terms of implementing points 2, 9 and 10, as a minimum. Also, WRT the supposed gentleman's agreement about Ukraine not joining NATO, I think it's also worth pointing out that Russia, along with the UK and USA was a signatory to a treaty that said it would safeguard the security of the Ukraine in exchange for it giving up nuclear weapons. I don't think they lived up to their side of that deal very well.
  12. Here's what you see when you pan left from the same spot.
  13. Here's a screenshot from google maps.
  14. You can actually look at the whole area on Google street view. I think this is near where the damage is. https://www.google.com/maps/@46.7741943,33.3739746,3a,75y,333.15h,92.32t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1sLZgdxBGEgToq7iAggonl-A!2e0!7i13312!8i6656 Right next to where the photo is there's a bridge over what looks like a shipping lock. I wonder if that was the target. Edit: Looking at it some more, I'd say that whatever it was that hit that road landed smack bang in the middle of the bridge over the lock. Here's the photo showing the damage...
  15. Confirmation of damage to, and attempted repairs of damage near the Nova Kakhovka power plant. https://twitter.com/TpyxaNews/status/1551121907503833088/photo/3
  16. The Kakhovka dam crossing is the only other road crossing over the Dnieper into Russian occupied territory on the right bank of the river besides the already damaged Antonovsky bridge outside Kherson. If both of those bridges are out of action then things don't look good for Russian troops in and around Kherson.
  17. The Ingulets river is important as it sits on what looks like the left flank of a Ukrainian advance on Kherson.
  18. More bridges hit according to Russian media.
