Today's news brought a very small consolation to frustrated pro-Russians. The Russians fully captured the village of Pavlovka in the Ugledar sector, which had been the sight of fierce fighting and heavy casualties for the last ten days or so. Unlike some claims of territorial captures that later turn out to be premature, with this one there is abundant evidence of complete Russian control of the village.
I also saw that the Russians completely cleared the long-contested village Bakhmutskoye, but I have not seen so much confirmation of that one.
Honestly, if Russians actually cleared two extremely fiercely contested Donbass villages on the same day, that makes this the best day for Russia on the Donbass front in a while.
But of course, this really doesn't matter compared to Kherson.

With the Russian troops now withdrawn to the East bank, it makes more sense for the Russian troops to blow up the dam. That way, when the big push comes, Ukraine no longer has the option to do it to sweep away Russian pontoon bridges.
