On August 3, former German Chancellor Gerhard Schroeder returned from Russia, where he met with Vladimir Putin, and said that the Kremlin was ready for peace talks with Ukraine. In Istanbul, the first ship that left Ukraine after the grain deal was successfully inspected. Russian troops continue to shell Mykolaiv and try to advance into the Donbass, where Ukrainian forces are bolstering defenses. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation stated that Moscow and Kyiv exchanged prisoners of war and the bodies of the dead 27 times. Ramzan Kadyrov became the “Hero of the LPR”, and the head of the self-proclaimed LPR received the Kadyrov order in return. The UN will create a mission to establish the facts of the shelling of the pre-trial detention center in Yelenovka. Meduza has collected the main photos of the 161st day of the war.

Important warning. Every day since the start of the Russian invasion, Meduza’s editors have selected key shots taken during the previous day of the war. These pictures contain scenes of gore, violence and death, but most of them not placed under a special plate, which the editors usually hide such images. In a series of these photo stories, we try to document the war as it is.
