Ukraine counteroffensive, Edition 9. Russian supplies cut and a bi-partisan Senate resolution that you need to know about.
Hello, my friends!
I wanted to send you the latest news about the Ukrainian counteroffensive.

I will make all of these FREE, so please feel free to share.

Russia and Ukraine news:
I’m still on vacation this week, but two big pieces of news broke today that I wanted to share.
First, Ukraine scored a massive deep-strike attack that will seriously impair Russian forces for weeks — or months — to come.
Here are those images from that tweet.
Knocking out that bridge (or even seriously damaging it so that rail and heavy trucks can’t use it) will starve the Russian troops north of it.
One other route exists, but…
Here’s an image of Armyansk — as a reminder, Ukrainian troops are just north of that blue line in the upper left corner, which is the Dnipro River. (They are just above where the small, blue triangle is in the upper left corner.)
More imagery on the route the Russians will now have to take with supplies (and the big issue with that plan, besides MUCH longer transit time).
But in the west, Russia continues to dig in better.
There’s some talk of a possible Ukrainian breakthrough, but that won’t be confirmed for at least another day or two.
One other big thing you need to know about.
There’s been a pretty important resolution created in the U.S. Senate today. It’s bi-partisan and I have no idea of it’s chances of success — no major news outlets had reporting on it as of 10:45 p.m. Eastern time — but you can watch video of it below.
Here’s the short of what it does:
That’s it from now. More soon as news break. Make sure you sign up! Even if it’s just for free!
