Rare Russian tank destroyed near Marinka

Ukrainian defenders using Javelin ATGMs hit a rare enemy T-90S tank. The vehicle was neutralized and the crew abandoned their vehicle. This was reported by the Military Courier.

The main difference between this model of the most advanced Russian armored vehicle is a new turret equipped with an advanced fire control system, automatic loading and cannon, as well as additional remote-controlled machine gun weapons and protection.

The T-90S destroyed near Marinka is only the eighth tank of this model to be destroyed in Ukraine.

20 Days in Mariupol is nominated for an Oscar

The documentary 20 Days in Mariupol by Mstyslav Chernov has been nominated for the Oscar 2024 in the Best Feature Documentary category.

The most prestigious award in US cinema has announced the final lists of nominees. The Ukrainian film 20 Days in Mariupol was nominated for Best Feature Documentary. This is the second time in history that a Ukrainian film has been nominated for an Oscar. Again, it is a documentary about war. 

The eyewitness documentary 20 Days in Mariupol by Mstyslav Chernov tells the story of the brutal siege of the Ukrainian port city by the Russian criminal army from February to May 2022, which resulted in the deaths of more than 20,000 people.

Partisans unfurl Ukrainian flag on a mountain in Crimea

Ukrainian guerrillas have raised a flag on the Crimean mountain Pakhkal-Kaya, which Russians call Bald Ivan. The head of the Joint Coordination Press Center of the Southern Defense Forces of Ukraine said this on the air of the national telethon.

"Such actions are a very strong element of hybrid warfare. It is an element of influence on both the enemy and the faith of those citizens who are waiting for the arrival of the Defense Forces and are in the temporarily occupied territory. It is really very difficult to be under occupation with pro-Ukrainian beliefs," emphasized Natalia Humeniuk.

In her opinion, such actions to support each other and influence the enemy's moral and psychological state are very important. Therefore, the Russian military no longer feels as confident in Crimea as it used to. In particular, due to the Ukrainian Armed Forces' targeted strikes on strategically important objects.

Hackers break into Russian space meteorology center

The BO Team hacker group paralyzed the computers and destroyed the data set of the Russian Space Meteorology Center Planeta, which provided Roshydromet, the Russian General Staff and the Russian Emergency Situations Ministry with satellite images.

According to Information Resistance, having quietly gained initial access to two of Planeta's servers, the hackers attacked all of its devices and services, resulting in the destruction of an unprecedented amount of information for such actions - a total of about 2 petabytes (approximately 2 million gigabytes) of data. Also, the operation of supercomputers with the LUSTRE file system, the estimated cost of which is USD 350,000, was paralyzed.

In total, the hackers destroyed more than 280 servers involved in the shared network. Several independent foreign experts estimate that the total cost of the lost information, given its uniqueness and the time it took to collect and summarize it, could be at least USD 10 million.

The hackers noted that even partial recovery of the destroyed data is impossible. As a result, dozens of strategic campaigns that work for the defense of the aggressor country and play a key role in supporting Russian troops will be left without critical information and services for quite some time.
