Status in the Ukraine - London Daily Mail

A three-fer from them.  They seem to be on top of the actual story:


Radioactive waste disposal site near Kyiv is hit by Russian airstrike as battle for capital enters third day and UN says at least 240 civilians have died: Ukraine's resistance to invasion has left Putin 'raging' in his mountain lair

    • Russia has struck the State Nuclear Regulatory Inspectorate of Ukraine in Kyiv, which stores nuclear waste
    • The facility's radiation detector was also destroyed - although a preliminary inspection suggests there is no immediate danger to locals
    • First confirmed death toll has also emerged - UN says at least 240 Ukrainian citizens have been killed
    • Two blasts went off in the south west of the Ukrainian capital shortly after midnight local time
    • A fuel depot in the city of Vasylkiv was targeted by Russian ballistic missiles, its mayor said
    • Russia also blew up a gas pipeline in Kharkiv, eastern Ukraine, which sits close to the Russian border
    • Vladimir Putin is said to be furious at his troops' apparent lack of progress, and is reportedly fuming in his heavily-guarded Russian mountain lair
    • An eerie orange glow filled the sky, CNN reports that a fuel depot may have been hit
    • Blast took place close to one of Kyiv's two airports - Boryspil International Airport, whose capture is vital to Russian takeover ambitions


Why Putin's '£15BILLION-a-day' invasion ISN'T going to plan: MI6 chief warns war is 'unwinnable' and ex-defence chief says Russia will run out of cash and arms if Kyiv holds out for 10 days as Moscow send in superweapons after Ukraine OBLITERATED convoy

    • Vladimir Putin's invasion with Ukraine is not going to plan due to Kremlin 'overconfidence' about war aims
    • MI6 chief endorsed an article on Saturday saying Russia's war is 'unwinnable' because of Ukraine's resilience
    • Ukrainian intelligence has claimed that Russia is running out of money, weapons and resources fast
    • If Kyiv can hold off the Russian advance on Kyiv for 10 days, the Kremlin may have to enter negotiations
    • Dramatic video shows a destroyed Russian convoy with Z-markings near Kherson in southern Ukraine
    • Two Russian military transport planes 'carrying paratroopers', a fighter jet and helicopter were downed

and Third:

Elon Musk answers Ukrainian vice prime minister's plea to switch on his Starlink satellite network so locals can access internet even if Russia destroys local telecoms system

    • SpaceX billionaire Elon Musk said on Saturday that the company's Starlink satellite broadband service is available in Ukraine
    • Musk also tweeted that SpaceX is sending more terminals to the country, whose internet has been disrupted due to the Russian invasion
    • 'Starlink service is now active in Ukraine. More terminals en route,' Musk tweeted
    • He was responding to a tweet by a Ukraine government official who asked Musk to provide the embattled country with Starlink stations
    • Internet connectivity in Ukraine has been affected by the Russian invasion, particularly in the southern and eastern parts of the country
    • Officials think internet access can help defeat Russian propaganda, and expose atrocities being carried out by Putin's troops
    • While extremely costly to deploy, satellite technology can provide internet for people who live in rural or hard-to-serve places

Last one is great.  Reminds me of Elon's tweet from six months ago - this exchange:


"Shake their fist at the sky" - I love it.
