Russian forces attack Ukraine 54 times yesterday.
Sadly 3 soldiers killed by Putin's army. 4 also wounded.
Reports of serious build up of Russian tanks on border with Crimea. Border closed in places.

What a change! After a relatively long hot spell, with temperatures frequently over 30 (90+) it has finally cooled down.
Perhaps 25 today. But still warmer east and south of the capital.
Cloudy where I am. No sun. But a welcome break in the heat.
Forecast for the next ten days is for it to basically stay pleasant. In the low 20s. Say 70F in US money.

Working on the Kerch Strait Bridge "is really like being a slave," Abdullin told RFE/RL.
