According to information, a nitric acid tank was hit, releasing deadly gas in the surrounding area.
Russians and Ukrainians are blaming each other for who hit the nitric acid tank.

The Americans are preparing the ground for a direct military engagement, at least in western Ukraine.
This shows a series of hasty military moves. The change in American attitude is evident after the massacre in the city of Busa.
The Czech Republic sent tanks and armor to Ukraine
The Czech Republic sent T-72 tanks and BVP-1 armored personnel carriers (the Czech version of the Soviet BMP-1) to Ukraine.
This is the first mission of a NATO member country.
It is still unknown how many tanks and armor the Czech Republic sent. Some sources speak of 40 T-72M1 and BVP-1 tanks and others of 100.

The non-operational KC-46s in Poland and Germany
USAF has sent KC-46 air supply tankers to Poland and Germany.
At the same time, an additional 10 American F-18 fighters were stationed in Poland, while two B-52s are constantly operating in southeastern Europe, in Adriatic and northern Greece. The US has amassed a large air force in Poland.
Russian sources speak of “American invasion force in Ukraine”.
It is noteworthy that the Boeing KC-46 began to carry out air supply missions in Europe, supporting American fighters and bombers over Germany and Poland , although they are not yet considered operational.
Why did the US rush the non-operational KC-46s? Obviously the US wants to keep dozens of fighters in the air if needed.
U.S. military sources say “the aircraft and personnel will support actual, operational missions as required.”
This particular tanker does not supply specific NATO and US aircraft such as the A-10 Warthog. However, it supplies 85% of American aircraft, mainly F-35s and F-22s.

The same offer was made at 6:00 this morning. But, as before, the Ukrainian side ignored the proposal.
“Given Kiev’s indifference to the preservation of its military life, Mariupol will be liberated from the nationalists by the Russian military and Donetsk forces,” the Russian Defense Ministry said angrily.
It seems that the Ukrainian authorities have rejected the Russian offer for a humanitarian corridor on Ukrainian territory and now the Ukrainian troops in Mariupol can only fight to the death or surrender.
Thriller with an American Officer
U.S. sources say a senior U.S. official leading a group of 30 Ukrainian soldiers, not members of Azov, has been trapped.
