Looks like we shall see the return of the good old fashioned torpedo nets to protect ships at anchor.

Nutloose. ?
BUT more interesting, so much for Minor damage to one ship!
Double tugged, so lost power and steering?
Double tugging is SOP when moving a large vessel, You need at least one at the front to make it go, at least one at the back to make it stop, two to go round corners and to get it alongside, All you can infer is the engine is poorly.

A downed KA-52. The crew didn't make it. Now the very Russian part: Russian troops made it to the site undisturbed but did not recover the bodies of the crew.
Russian version of no one is left behind.

Just reading the that British Ambassador to Russia has been summoned by the Kremlin regarding our alleged involvement in the Sevastopol drone attack. Its funny, I distinctly remember the Russians casually dismissing our complaints and threatening 'little ol' Britain' following the Litvenenko assassination and Salisbury attack. Now they're bleating that we may have helped cripple the core of their Black Sea fleet - how times have changed.

They appear to have located the launch point and base for the Irainian suicide drone launches. Hopefully it won't be standing for to long.

Shame that Crimea info needed to go viral before a UKR operation.

Totally agree, but it is now out there.. At least now they know where it is they can monitor its movement if it does indeed move.

Or that there is a problem with the steering gear, or generators. leaving the vessel without electricity.

Why do they call it a Rivet Joint and couldn't they have given the aircraft a better name?

I think they have a name generator as they have for operations and exercises.

Interestingly the Rivet joints tracks appear to show it is looking at the sticky out bit on Crimea on the right and that is where the base for the Iranian kamikaze drones is, which was located earlier.

Claims that the Poles are building a wall with Kaliningrad to stop Russia flying in African migrants:

Just been checking on Putins Black Sea Palace. WikiP says "The residence is located at 44.419N 38.205E on Cape Idokopas" which puts it 85nm from coastline border of Crimea but over 220 miles from the current Russian occupied territory in UKR. So he will not be wanting to give up this buffer...

In recent times we seem to be observing a lot of unattributed events in Russia, that have a high chance of being done by Russian forces, the demolition of the 2 alligators, other POL facilities. Seems that the revolt is happening already and is starting to pick up both speed and consequences. Rolling eventually to Vlad's door step, special military delivery by his own hand. Seems appropriate.

Still don't understand why with all these KA-52 shootdowns, we haven't one instance of the ejection system being used.
Possibly out of envelope, too low, slow...?
