On the 164th day of the full-scale Russia’s military invasion of Ukraine Russian troops continue to try to capture the settlements of the neighboring country. The armed forces and units of the territorial defense of Ukraine resist aggression. It is impossible to verify the statements of representatives of both sides of the conflict from independent sources. According to the UN, about 14 million Ukrainians have already left their homes. DW continues to follow developments Saturday, August 6 (Moscow time).


Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) states that it stopped the activities of the Russian intelligence network that collected intelligence on the deployment and movement of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) in Slovyansk, Kramatorsk and Pokrovsky district of the Donetsk region. According to the intelligence service, two attackers carried out reconnaissance and sabotage activities in the Nikolaev region: they collected and transmitted intelligence to the enemy about important infrastructure facilities, fuel depots, deployment and movement of manpower and equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

As a result of the actions of the agent network, several objects of the city’s shipbuilding infrastructure were destroyed and damaged, including the Equator, Kristall, Okean plants, warehouses with fuel and lubricants, and social infrastructure facilities were destroyed, the SBU said. At present, all the detainees have been announced on suspicion of committing crimes against the state security of Ukraine. The issue of choosing a measure of restraint in the form of detention is being decided.
