Timeline of war: day 213 of russia's war in Ukraine
Ukrainian Army successes
📌 Air defense units destroyed 4 aircraft (Su-25, two Su-30 and one Su-34), 5 UAVs and a cruise missile of the occupiers.
📌 An enemy helicopter was destroyed in Mykolaiv district. Also during this time, the Armed Forces shot down 8 kamikaze drones.
📌 In Ukraine, a new type of Iranian UAV – Mohajer-6 – was shot down for the first time. The drone can carry up to 4 precision munitions. Due to the supply of weapons to russia, Ukraine deprived the ambassador of Iran of accreditation and reduced the number of diplomatic personnel.
📌 Updated map from European war experts:
The Armed Forces of the Kharkiv region advanced to the northwest and recaptured the settlements of Krymka and Oleksandrivka from the occupiers.
Fighting is going on in the area of the village of Korovii Yar.
Also, Ukrainian troops are continuing their gradual offensive around the Lyman, fighting is going on for the settlement of Drobysheve.
📌 And below is the Antoniv bridge in Kherson now. As can be seen from the damage, the bridge is not suitable for vehicles to pass through – the Rashists are left without a supply of weapons.
📌 National Guard evacuated people who were hiding in the forest from shelling near Slovyansk. It was possible to take out even those lying down.

📌 How "pseudo-referendums" are held in the occupied territories:
the crowd of tourers is only there for the camera, but where there are no video cameras, there are no people willing to vote;
the so-called bypass "commissions" accompany the military of the russian federation with weapons: in case of refusal to "vote" – they threaten eviction and physical violence;
all those whose "ballots" put a checkmark opposite "No" are immediately put on the lists of untrustworthy;
the principle "vote" for yourself and your family (!) without a passport applies, because "we already know you."
📌 According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in the Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions, men who received a Russian passport are served with summonses.
