Damage to a major dam in southern Ukraine on Tuesday caused massive flooding and evacuations, which decreased the likelihood that any offensive would target that region.
Another video posted on Twitter shows the chief rabbi of Ukraine, Moshe Azman, addressing the camera to talk about evacuation attempts in Kherson.
An initial thud interrupts him midsentence, and Azman crouches down. A larger thud follows and echoes. Everyone at the scene, including the person holding the camera, lies flat on the ground, blocking the camera in a hasty attempt to get to safety. A hum can be heard growing louder until a solid thud cuts short the sound. The person filming crouches and pans to the right in time to catch a cascade of water forming a misty wall of droplets above the dark brown floodwaters.

An initial Ukrainian counteroffensive in the fall regained territory around Kherson and Kupiansk. Since then, the sides have fought a grinding war for incremental gains around the decimated city of Bakhmut and elsewhere. Neither side has made any major territorial progress.
