ICEYE Satellite Image of Crimea Bridge

The Crimea Bridge is a relatively new bridge that connects the Russia mainland with Crimea.
Finnish satellite-imagery venture ICEYE announced on Thursday that it has signed a contract with the Serhiy Prytula Charity Foundation which will provide the Government of Ukraine with ICEYE’s Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) satellite imaging capabilities. - Defence Blog
ICEYE is a Finnish company that builds and operates microsatellites. I am surprised that microsatellites can deliver high resolution images. I thought you needed big cameras with big lenses being carried by big satellites. But ICEYE isn't using cameras, they are using radar.

Looks like we have another charity supporting Ukraine's war against the big, bad, Russian bear. But just who is this Serhiy Prytula Charity Foundation? It's a foundation founded by Serhiy Prytula, a Ukrainian comedian. Is this whole war effort just a big comedy show? I mean, the President of the Ukraine is also a former comedian. And the war doesn't make a lot of sense unless funnelling a few million more dollars into Joe Biden's pocket is more important than all the worthless peasants in Ukraine.

Or you are afraid that Russia will take over the world. I, for one, am not too concerned about that happening.
