Russians ‘highly vulnerable’ after Ukrainian forces bomb 3 bridgesL
Russian troops in Ukraine’s Kherson region are believed to be highly vulnerable to attack and “virtually cut off” from their other occupied territories after Kyiv’s troops blew up or damaged three key bridges — as US intelligence estimated that half of the Kremlin’s invading force has been obliterated.
More than 75,000 Russian soldiers have been either killed or wounded since the start of the war in Ukraine on Feb. 24, according to US Rep. Elissa Slotkin, who she learned of the latest toll from intelligence officials at a recent briefing.
“We were briefed that over 75,000 Russians have either been killed or wounded, which is huge, you’ve got incredible amounts of investment in their land forces, over 80% of their land forces are bogged down, and they’re tired,” Slotkin, who serves on the House Armed Services Committee, told CNN on Wednesday. “But they’re still the Russian military.”
US intelligence officials previously estimated that Russia had sent somewhere between 150,000 and 190,000 troops to fight in Ukraine. --->READ MORE HERE

US rocket system enables Ukraine to pummel key supply bridge:
Ukrainian troops used American-supplied precision rocket launchers to knock out a strategic bridge used by Russia to supply its forces in southern Ukraine’s occupied Kherson region, officials said Wednesday.
Ukraine also claimed to have destroyed an enemy ammunition depot, artillery pieces and other military equipment in the region, killing 51 members of the Russian army. There was no immediate confirmation from the Russian side.
The Antonivskyi Bridge over the Dnieper River was attacked late Tuesday, according to Kirill Stremousov, deputy head of the Moscow-appointed administration for the Kherson region. The bridge was left standing, but holes in its deck prevented vehicles from crossing the 1.4-kilometer (0.9-mile) span, he said.
After previous Ukrainian attacks damaged the bridge last week, it was closed to trucks, but it had remained open for passenger vehicles until the latest strike.
Russian forces in recent days have intensified their shelling of cities and villages in eastern Ukraine while also stepping up airstrikes in the south. At the same time, the Kremlin’s troops are facing mounting counterattacks from the Ukrainians in the Kherson region, which was captured by Moscow early in the war. ---->READ MORE HERE
