Russian military intel update: War in Iraq
This looks like being the final 'Russian report'. How accurate and reliable these reports are is difficult to determine, but at least the attempt was made to produce a daily briefing on military action, movements and casualties. I cant find anything similar in the Western media. The reports tended to be upbeat in regard to the performance of the Iraqis and the Republican Guard, however at present it looks as though after a pause south of Baghdad the Americans have been able to launch a rapid drive towards and right into Baghdad. The extent of continued Iraqi resistance throughout the city remains to be seen.
