Nazar Voloshyn, a spokesman for Ukraine's Khortytsia troop grouping, told Interfax-Ukraine.

"Russian troops' losses amounted to 5,095 soldiers and 24 captured in a month," he said.

Voloshyn added that in June, Russia made an average of 5 assaults per day in the Chasiv Yar area.

Ukraine and the UK develop method to prove Russia is selling stolen grain

Ukrainians, together with the British, are working to introduce a system that will help determine the origin of grain supplied by Russia to world markets.

Taras Vysotskyi, acting Minister of Agrarian Policy of Ukraine, shared the information.

The system involves conducting a chemical analysis of the grain.

"Back in 2022, we used satellite imagery to show that a ship with obviously stolen grain was leaving, and we communicated with the end consumer through international channels, asking them to refuse and not buy it. But in any case, such evidence is not enough on the basis of satellite images alone. Because Russia also grows a lot of grain," the official said.

"Therefore, only with the help of a very high-precision analysis, comparison of grain samples, even of the same variety, can one prove [the place of origin of the crop]. There are specifics of the region, the soil, that can confirm that this strain can only come from Kherson or Zaporizhzhia, etc. Now we have an idea with the British to launch this laboratory analysis," he added.

Ukrainian cyber specialists launch largest attack on Russian providers in May

In May, specialists of Ukraine's Defence Intelligence launched a massive cyberattack on Russian providers, causing network disruption in the temporarily occupied Crimea, as well as in the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions.

This is reported by, citing a source in the Security and Defence Forces.

The source said that the Russians call this DDoS attack by the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine the most powerful they have ever had to deal with.

According to the source, the Russian operator Miranda Media suffered the most as a result of the attack. Its subscribers had no connection and could not pay for services due to the damage to the billing system. Users of the temporarily occupied territories of Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions, as well as Crimea, had no access to the network. 

At the same time, cyberattacks by the Defence Intelligence of Ukraine affected the Russian Farline network, primarily in Crimea.

The CEO of one of the Russian telecommunications operators, Ivan Zima, informed local media that it took Russian specialists at least 16 hours to partially restore the connection. A significant number of subscribers remained without connection for more than two days.

Turkey, Romania, and Bulgaria start Black Sea demining operations

On July 1, Turkey, Romania, and Bulgaria started a joint mine-hunting force in the Black Sea. 

Bloomberg reports.

This initiative aims to enhance shipping safety, particularly for Ukrainian grain exports. It's the first coordinated action among Black Sea countries since Russia's full-scale invasion of Ukraine, focusing on removing mines drifting due to the war.
