    now went over sources and it looks like the attack was a tactical success (I'm not being cynical or nothing):
    1. only the target and his bodyguard dead, twelve people injured, will live (five are hospitalized); and
    2. no trace of assailants (no serious claims like 'Ukrainian sabotage unit was chased')
    #1 probably means the assailants knew where the target would sit

    Yesterday at 10:50 AM
    now watched the report of https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Russia-1 linked inside https://www.gazeta.ru/politics/news/2018/09/02/n_11982673.shtml

    they say (after 01:20) the bomb was in the chandelier

    (don't nitpick, it's not easy for me to do Russian to English)

    in the entrance part (I assume it'd be right behind the doors in the picture above)

    ... the first who entered was the bodyguard (then killed instantly by the blast), the second was Mr. Zakharchenko (who then died on the way to a hospital) ...

    BUT later they say (after 03:30) the visit was NOT planned (заехал по пути) ... I listened twice to this, will leave it at that

    [​IMG]

    The Ukrainian army is putting a new multiple-launch rocket system (MLRS) rocket into service. In mid-2019, the Ukrainian military is expected to start taking delivery of the Vilkha rockets with BM-30 MLRS, according to UNIAN. The news website reported that serial production of the Vilkha will begin soon, following testing in April 2018 and December 2017.

    U.S. To Offer Surplus Oliver Hazard Perry Class Frigates To Ukraine: Reports

    [​IMG]

    According to reports out of Ukraine, the U.S. is looking to offer the country an unknown number of currently mothballed Oliver Hazard Perry frigates in an attempt to help Kiev bolster its presence in the Black Sea and possibly around the entrance to the increasingly contested Sea of Azov. If Ukraine agrees to receive the ships, the transfer would occur through the Excess Defense Property program which commonly funnels surplus U.S. military gear to foreign allies.
