Investigating authorities said they were working at the scene to establish how he died. Tass news agency quoted sources saying he had fallen out of a sixth-floor window early on Thursday morning, adding later that he had taken his own life.
Shortly after Russia invaded Ukraine, the Lukoil board called for the conflict to end as soon as possible, expressing its sympathy to victims of "this tragedy".

How does one even word this in a grammatically correct way? “He has been given the opportunity to take his own life by falling out of a window”?

Someone hacked Russia’s largest taxi company and ordered all available taxis to central Moscow, creating huge traffic jams in the city.

Kherson region offensive seems to going well, maybe 1000 prisoners taken today!



About 300 to 400 Russians are being terminated every day:

As much as we all (I think) are on Ukraine's side, I think it's bad taste to post daily casualty numbers, and with such a "yay, more Russians dead!" intonation to boot.
Also, don't trust those numbers.

It was a big day, probably the worst day so far, numbers partly tell the story. There are about 20k Russians trapped in that area.

There are was a data leak of compensation paid to families of the deceased in Russia which tallies with these numbers. If anything UA might be under reporting.

A big day, but then you see how far the lines have to move, and UA Generals talk about how many more divisions they have to build before they can think about Crimea.

A savage day.

Today has been another relatively successful day of combined forces operation by UA, considering the lack of equipment.

Russian soldiers near the front line are receiving messages on their phones:
