Russia is losing regardless of what their propaganda says.

It's interesting to speculate, but this line says it all: "This is, after all, a level of guesswork not far removed from skillful examination of a calf's entrails."

Ukraine update: Cutting through the fog to get some sense of what's happening at Staryi Saltiv

Note the addition at the end of the article:

Now we have at least a partial answer: the hot spots on the west side of the river represented part of that Russian counter-attack. In their counter attack, they've reportedly retaken both Rubizhne and Ternova, rolling back these Ukrainian victories.

This makes it seem more likely that: 1) Ukraine has in fact captured Buhaivka, and 2) the firing in that area today was Russia attacking that Ukrainian advance
