Izithombe ezisatshalaliswe ezinkundleni zokuxhumana zibonisa iguzu elingamakhilomitha angu-60 ubude lithwele ombayimbayi nezikhali lisuka e-Russia lisondela enhlokodolobha yase-Ukraine i-Kyiv, njengoba amasosha kaVladimir Putin eqinisa umkhankaso wawo wempi.

Uhide lwezimoto, esezikhuphuke zisuka emngceleni oseNingizimu ye-Belarus, beliqhele ngamakhilomitha angu-28 kuphela ngaphandle kwedolobha kusukela ngoMsombuluko ebusuku ngokusho kwenkampani yesathelayithi i-Maxar.

Isimo enhlokodolobha yase-Ukraine – obekuyikhaya labantu ababalelwa kwizigidi ezintathu ngaphambi kokuhlaselwa – sekuvele kwaphenduka indawo yamathuna.

Kubonakale olayini abade ngaphandle kwezitolo ezinkulu zedolobha njengoba abahlali bezilungiselela ukushoda kokudla.

Manje ochwepheshe bezimpi basaba ukuthi uhide olusondelayo lukhulu ngokwanele ukuba luvimbezele idolobha, futhi lizokwazi ukunqamula imithombo ebalulekile yokuhlinzeka ngezinsiza. Lokhu kuzovula umnyango wendlala nokuntuleka kwezinsiza zokwelapha.

UJenene uRichard Barrons, ongusihlalo-jikelele we-Universal Defence and Security Solutions, uthe uhide lwezimoto zezimpi kungenzeka “luvimbezele idolobha…noma lungavele lubhubhise yonke indawo.

Njengoba ukuhlasela kuthathe isikhathi eside kunalokho obekulindelwe ekuqaleni, izibukeli zisaba ukuthi i-Russia izodedela amasosha ayo okungewona awenuzi emadolobheni nasemadolobhaneni ase-Ukraine.

Angaphezu kwangu-70 amasosha ase-Ukraine abulawe ngesikhathi kuhlaselwa isikhungo samasosha edolobheni i-Okhtyrka ezintatha zangoLwesibili.

Khonamanjalo, ukuhlasela kwamarokhethi okuqhubekayo kubulale “inqwaba” yezakhamizi e-Kharviv, okuyidolobha lesibili ngobukhulu e-Ukraine.

Kuze kwabikwa ukuthi amasosha ahlaselayo adedele “ibhomu le-vacuum” ngoMsombuluko, isikhali esinamandla kakhulu esithungela i-fireball emunca yonke i-oksijini  ezungezile.
