Ukrainians. The British Ministry of Defense claimed this on Twitter in its regular update based on intelligence reports.

Ukrainian Ministry of Defense. He added, “All residents of the temporarily occupied Crimea are advised not to be near military facilities for the foreseeable future.” The official said the explosion destroyed more than 10 oil product tanks destined for the Russian fleet in the Black Sea.
Meanwhile, Wagner’s boss, Yevgeny PrigozhinAnd He said that the Ukrainian military was ready to launch a counterattack by May 15. “The Ukrainian army is ready for a counterattack. It was hampered by bad weather and maybe some internal problems that it had to solve,” Prigozhin said. “Maybe they will give us some rest on May 9, but the attack will start 100% before May 15,” he concluded.
Meanwhile, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky called on Western partners to make a decision to supply Ukraine with F-16 fighters, stressing that the lack of modern aircraft would not affect the start of the counterattack: “Frankly, it would be very useful (we have F-16s). We know that we will not be too late, so we will start the counterattack even before we have the F-16s or other aircraft. We will start and we will continue. He stated this in an interview with representatives of the Finnish, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian media, as reported by Ukrinform.
Zelensky said that the counter-offensive that the Ukrainian army is planning to liberate the territories occupied by Russia also includes the liberation of Crimea, which Russia annexed in 2014. “We want to save as many lives as possible, so the number of weapons is important,” he said. According to Zelensky, the Russian forces are losing motivation every day and at the same time fearing the consequences of their withdrawal.
While Zelensky refused to reveal any details or timeline of the counterattack, he believes it was planned late spring or early summer. Despite his hopes of success, he also warned that the war could drag on for years or even decades. “It is more appropriate for other countries to support Ukraine now than to increase the risk of a third world war,” Zelensky said in the interview.
For his part, Prigozhin stated this “Wagner may soon cease to exist,” said a video posted on Telegram by Russian war blogger Semyon Pegov and picked up by several international media outlets. During the war in Ukraine, Prigozhin has repeatedly criticized the way Moscow conducts military operations, accusing the Russian army commanders of treachery for lack of support for his men, and is currently leading the campaign of conquest of Bakhmut. It was not clear how serious Prigozhin’s talk was, and Wagner did not comment at this time.
Prigozhin said: “At the moment, we are reaching the point where Wagner will cease to exist. And it will happen soon. We will become history, but I don’t worry about that, these are things that can happen.” . Russian war blogger Pegov later posted the clip to his Telegram channel. Prigozhin, known for his combative style and sense of cynicism, said on Thursday he was joking when he said his forces would stop shelling Bakhmut to allow Ukrainian forces to show the city to visiting American journalists.
