- 00:28Russian commander shown after Ukraine said it killed himReuters VideosSTORY: In video and photographs released by the Russian defense ministry, Sokolov was shown taking part in a video conference with Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and other top admirals and army chiefs.

Earlier on Tuesday, Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov had declined to comment on the Ukrainian claim, referring reporters to the defense ministry.1 day ago

- 01:32Russian Black Sea Fleet commander killed: UkraineReuters VideosSTORY: Ukraine's special forces claimed on Monday, they had killed the commander of Russia's Black Sea Fleet, during an attack last week on the fleet’s headquarters in the Crimean port of Sevastopol. The Russian Defence Ministry did not immediately confirm or deny to Reuters, whether Admiral Viktor Sokolov had been killed in the attack. A video obtained by Reuters shows Friday's attack. The Ukrainian military said it was targeting a meeting of the Russian Navy's leadership in Crimea, which Russia seized and annexed in 2014. On the Telegram messaging app, Ukraine’s special forces said: "After the strike on the headquarters of the Russian Black Sea Fleet, 34 officers died, including the commander of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. Another 105 occupiers were wounded. The headquarters building cannot be restored.” Satellite images from Friday showed smoke billowing from the building in Sevastopol's city centre. It was not immediately clear how Ukraine’s forces counted the dead and wounded in the attack. Both sides have at times inflated claims of enemy losses since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine in early 2022. Russian-installed Crimean officials confirmed the Ukrainian attack on Friday, saying at least one missile struck the fleet headquarters. Kyiv has stepped up attacks in the Black Sea and Crimea, as Ukrainian forces press on with a nearly four-month-old counteroffensive to take back Russian-occupied territory.2 days ago

- 00:38Ukraine says artillery inflcts toll on Russian linesReuters VideosSTORY: Buoyed after the capture last week of the key village of Klishchiivka, Ukrainian troops have lauded the 155 millimetre howitzers as key equipment being provided by the United States and its NATO allies. Oleksandr, 30, described Klishchiivka - a village on the heights south of the devastated town of Bakhmut - as "one of the places they (the Russians) were clinging to." Ukrainian commanders have described the capture of Klischiivka and nearby Andriivka as stepping stones to taking back Bakhmut, which fell to the Russians after months of some of the war's heaviest fighting. The gains have been among the most significant in Ukraine's counteroffensive, which began in June and has struggled to break through entrenched Russian lines.4 days ago

- 01:55Russia strikes Ukraine in biggest attack in weeksReuters VideosSTORY: Smouldering rubble, destroyed buildings and air raid siren. This is Kyiv on Thursday (21 September) after Russia launched its biggest missile attack in weeks across Ukraine. In the capital city, Oksana describes the moment of the blast. “The explosion woke me up. At first there was a red glare outside the window and then there was no window, and I was lying covered in broken glass. I heard people screaming and crying and I rushed outside. Then I went and found the cat. Thank God he is alive.” The strikes also damaged energy facilities and, with winter approaching, officials say the attack appears to be the start of a new air campaign against the Ukrainian power grid. Partial power cuts were reported in five Ukrainian regions and grid operator Ukrenergo says it was the first attack on power infrastructure in six months. The country has been racing for months to repair infrastructure after attacks last winter damaged nearly half of its energy system and forced grid operators to impose regular rolling power cuts. This year, Ukraine has better, Western-supplied air defenses, but still has the huge challenge of defending against attacks in such a big country. According to Ukraine’s Commander-in-Chief of the armed forces, Russia fired 43 cruise missiles at targets overnight. Ukrainian air defenses shot down 36 of them. In the capital seven people, including a girl aged nine, were injured. Mayor Vitali Klitshko reported that missile debris fell in the city center and that an infrastructure facility and several non-residential buildings were damaged, causing a fire. Injuries and deaths were also reported in blasts across Ukraine, from the city of Kherson to near the Polish border. Russia has not commented on the new air strikes, carried out as President Volodymyr Zelenskiy visits the United States for talks following the U.N. General Assembly.6 days ago
