The images were obtained from the Russian Ministry of Defense (MoD) on the evening of Tuesday July 5, along with a short statement claiming that they show “the combat work of the crews of an operational and tactical Iskander missile system “.

The footage shows a missile being launched from the vehicle before the footage was cut and allegedly shows it hitting a target.

Russian President Vladimir Putin is pushing his advantage after his forces captured the Ukrainian town of Lysychansk in the eastern region of Lugansk Oblast, ordering Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu to continue the offensive.

Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky said Ukrainian forces would retake the city “thanks to the increased supply of modern weapons”.

Lugansk regional governor Serhiy Haidai said Ukrainian troops have now moved to new fortified positions. He pleaded for more weapons from Ukraine’s allies to help combat Russia’s current advantage.

Haidai also said the Battle of Lysychansk forced Russia to commit troops that could have fought on other fronts, giving Ukraine time to strengthen the Donetsk region. Ukrainian troops have set up new defensive lines in the region, where they control the main towns, with plans to launch a counter-offensive in the south of the country.

President Zelensky is negotiating with Turkey and the UN to obtain guarantees for his country’s grain exports. The move comes after Turkish authorities stopped a Russian cargo ship carrying grain that was allegedly stolen from Ukraine. The ship would contain more than 7,000 tonnes of grain which Russian officials said would be sent to “friendly” countries.

Ukraine has also asked Turkey to investigate three other Russian vessels it says carried stolen grain.

The head of the Russian-backed administration in the occupied Zaporizhzhia region of Ukraine, Yevgeny Balitsky, has announced his intention to sell Ukrainian grain to Middle Eastern countries.

Canada became the first NATO country to officially ratify Sweden and Finland’s membership in the Alliance.
