In better news, Russia lost two jets today and a Russian war criminal who had personally murdered captive soldiers was himself killed in a car bomb.

Lots of bad news lately.

An Abrams was destroyed in Ukraine.  An Archer, too.  Sadly, there are losses in war and even though Ukraine knocks out on average a little more than 3 vehicles for every one they lose and generally lose less important equipment, they lose some important stuff too from time to time.  It happens.

Ukrainian forces have pulled back from Sieverne and Stepove villages, both of which are close to Adiivka.  In the 2001 census, Stepove was 62 people, so village is a generous way of putting it.  Ukraine once again has to cede some ground to preserve its fighting strength.

Several Ukrainian grain trucks stuck at the Polish border were cut open and their contents spilled out into the road.  There has also been reports of nails and screws strewn all over the road near one of the border crossings.  Ukrainian civilians die as a direct result of this halting of supplies and it seems that the Polish "protestors" don't care (one had a sign welcoming Putin to Poland, complete with a Soviet Union flag).  The Polish government doesn't seem particularly keen on breaking up these roadblocks or arresting perpetrators of criminal activity.  It's such a shame, because Poland and Ukraine had such great relations, albeit with some hiccups, before this.  Now, Poland is associated with provocateurs and saboteurs and fellow travelers.

North Korea has sent 6,700 shipping containers to Russia, perhaps 3 million shells in total.  Meanwhile, Europe struggles with handing over 300,000 shells.  Granted, the European shells are vastly better quality than the North Korean ones.  Still, it's not enough and it would be a crying shame - as well as a completely avoidable humanitarian catastrophe - if Russia takes a swathe of territory simply because Ukraine runs low on shells.  And as far as the US goes, despite Biden applying a lot of pressure on Johnson to pass Ukrainian aid, Johnson has yet to commit to anything with Ukraine and as far as I can tell, the situation there has not changed.  So I remain cautiously...cautious as far as Ukrainian aid goes.  Would be a nice time to crack open those frozen Russian funds though, hint hint Biden.

US allies have been watching this unfold and Taiwan is understandably upset.  It seems that democracies cannot come to each other's aid as effectively as dictatorships since democracies can be stalled at several vulnerable junctures while dictatorships only have one.  I sincerely hope this is only a short-term hiccup and not a long-term reality or Putin may be proven right, facilitating further aggression by knowing that Western unity is fleeting and easily disrupted by bad actors.
