o 223,910 Soldiers (Wounded or Killed) o 4,024 Tanks o 7,804 Armored vehicles o 4,015 Artillery o 314 Aircraft o 308 Helicopters o 3,460 Drones

  • Russian forces have continued assaults on Ukrainian cities over the last few days, here is a summary:

o June 22: 13 missiles were launched at an airfield in the Khmelnytskyi region. All these missiles were destroyed by Ukrainian air defense. o June 23: A total of 50 missiles were launched and 41 were shot down. A total of three people were killed, and four homes were destroyed and 25 homes were damaged.

  • Ukrainian intelligence on June 22nd reported that Russian forces may be planning an attack on the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant.

  • Wagner Group Insurrection:

o This morning (June 24th) Wagner Group forces began what they referred to as “March of Freedom” and crossed from occupied Ukraine into Russia: ü In Rostov-on-Don, Wagner Group forces has almost certainly occupied key security sites, including the headquarters which runs Russia’s military operations in Ukraine. Other units of the Wagner Group are moving north through Vorenezh Oblast, almost certainly aiming to get to Moscow. ü There is very limited evidence of fighting between the Wagner forces and Russian security forces, some have likely remained passive. o Wagner Group’s Telegram channel called for President Putin to be deposed. o The Center for Information Resilience reported that the Mayor of Moscow issued a statement that residents should restrict their movements around the city, adding that Monday is a "non-working day" and to prepare for roadblocks and possible evacuation. o The Ukrainian Minister of Defense issued a statement via Twitter. o There are media reports that Wagner Group forces have halted their advance on Moscow.

  • The United Kingdom’s Ministry of Defense is reporting the following:

o Russian investigation in Ukrainian crimes against juveniles: ü On June 20th, the Russian parliament (Duma) voted to create a parliamentary committee to investigate alleged crimes committed by the Ukrainian government against juveniles in the Donbas since 2014. ü The Duma is certainly responding to the international condemnation of Russia’s deportation of children from occupied Ukraine since its full-scale invasion. ü The move is highly likely both a form of ‘lawfare’ and contributes to Russian dis-information operations, weaponizing legislation by attempting to muddy the narrative around its own egregious actions. ü Messaging around children’s rights is likely an important communications theme for the Kremlin because alleged child deportations formed the basis of the International Criminal Court’s arrest warrant against President Putin issued in March 2023. o Expansion of Russian defensive positions: ü Intense fighting continues in sectors of southern Ukraine. However, over recent weeks, Russia has continued to expend significant effort building defensive lines deep in rear areas, especially on the approaches to occupied Crimea. ü This includes an extensive zone of defenses of 9 km in length, 3.5 km north of the town Armyansk, on the narrow bridge of land connecting Crimea to the Kherson region. ü These elaborate defenses highlight the Russian command’s assessment that Ukrainian forces are capable of directly assaulting Crimea. ü Russia continues to see maintaining control of the peninsula as a top political priority.
