Russia struck Kharkiv with glide bombs

Russian forces launched three glide bombs at Kharkiv on June 10, injuring at least seven people, according to Mayor Ihor Terekhov.

Recently, Russia has intensified attacks against Kharkiv, Ukraine's second-largest city after Kyiv, using missiles, glide bombs, and drones. These attacks have destroyed energy infrastructure and resulted in civilian casualties.

The Russian military conducted the strike at around 5:35 p.m. local time, targeting a residential area, reported Kharkiv Oblast Governor Oleh Syniehubov.

As of 6:52 p.m. local time, at least seven people were confirmed injured, according to local authorities. Another person was still being rescued from the rubble, Terekhov said.

The attack damaged at least two houses in the Kyiv district of Kharkiv and caused a fire in another area, Terekhov reported.

Russia uses submarines to patrol Black Sea after naval losses

Russia has begun using submarines to patrol the Black Sea after several of its ships were attacked by Ukraine, Dmytro Pletenchuk, a spokesperson for the Southern Defense Forces and the Navy, announced on national television on June 10.

Since the start of the full-scale invasion, Ukraine has repeatedly struck Russian vessels. By December 2023, around 30% of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet had been destroyed, according to the Ukrainian military.

"They [Russia] have already established a practice where these submarines rotate in the morning. In the Azov-Black Sea region, they have four submarines, three of which are cruise missile carriers. Two submarines periodically go to sea," Pletenchuk said.

Russia is reportedly trying to organize naval exercises in the Azov Sea. To protect their ships from Ukrainian drone attacks, Russia is constructing barge-like structures, according to the spokesperson.

Currently, there are three Russian landing ships and three Buyan-M project small missile ships in the Azov Sea, Pletenchuk stated.

Ukrainian forces reportedly crippled the Rostov-on-Don, one of the Russian fleet's four missile-capable submarines, in occupied Sevastopol in September 2023.

In one of the latest successful attacks, Ukrainian Magura V5 naval drones struck four Russian patrol boats of the KS-701 Tunets (Tuna) model in Crimea on May 30. Ukraine's military intelligence reported that two of the boats were destroyed, and the other two were damaged.

Ukraine hit Russian S-400, S-300 systems in occupied Crimea overnight

Ukrainian forces attacked Russian S-400 and S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems in several areas in occupied Crimea overnight on June 10, according to Ukraine's General Staff.

The announcement followed reports of multiple explosions on the peninsula during the night.

An S-400 anti-aircraft missile unit was hit near Dzhankoi, and two S-300 anti-aircraft missile units were attacked near occupied Chornomorske and Yevpatoria, the military reported.

The radars of these systems reportedly stopped working "immediately" after the strikes.

"None of our missiles fired were intercepted by the enemy's 'highly effective' air defense," the General Staff stated.

"In addition, further detonations of ammunition were observed in all three areas where the Russian anti-aircraft missile divisions were positioned."

The General Staff did not provide further details on the attack's consequences or the specific weaponry used.

Russia's modern S-400 Triumph air defense system is estimated to cost around $1.2 billion.

In mid-April, four S-400 launchers and other equipment were destroyed in an attack on a Russian military airfield in Crimea, according to Ukraine's military intelligence (HUR).

On the night of May 30, the Ukrainian military reportedly struck the ferry crossing in occupied Kerch with U.S.-provided long-range ATACMS missiles. Two Russian ferries were "significantly damaged," according to Ukraine's General Staff.

Moscow "actively used" the ferry crossing to supply Russian troops in the occupied peninsula and defended it with Russian Pantsir, Tor, and Triumph air defense systems, the Ukrainian military said.

Russians attacked Nikopol

Russian forces attacked the Nikopol district in Dnipropetrovsk Oblast on June 9, injuring a 44-year-old woman and damaging homes and property, Governor Serhii Lysak reported.

The Russian military attacked the Marhanets community with artillery and launched a drone attack on the Pokrovksk community, Lysak said. Later attacks also targeted Nikopol and Myrove.

A 44-year-old woman was injured during an attack on the district center, Lysak reported. She received medical attention and will be treated on an outpatient basis.

The attacks damaged a greenhouse, a fishing boat, four homes, two outbuildings, and a garage, according to the governor. Gas pipelines and a power line were also damaged.

Nikopol, located on the banks of the dried-up Kakhovka Reservoir, just across from Russian-occupied Enerhodar and the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant, is a regular target of Russian attacks.
