Ukraine briefly

It has been the 197th day of Ukraine’s resistance to the russian military invasion. 

Here is operational information from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as of 6pm:

The enemy continues to focus its efforts on establishing full control over the territory of Donetsk oblast and holding temporarily occupied areas of Kherson, parts of Kharkiv, Zaporizhzhia, and Mykolaiv oblasts. Intensive aerial reconnaissance with UAVs is conducted and measures are taken to improve logistics support of enemy troops. 

The occupier launched 4 missile strikes on Kostiantynivka, Tsirkuny, Bereznehuvate and Kharkiv, there are civilian casualties; 15 airstrikes on military and civilian targets near Temyrivka, Krasnohorivka, Volodymyrivka and Novomykhailivka.

As a result of successful actions of the guerrilla movement in cooperation with the artillery of the Defense Forces, enemy units have significant problems with logistics support in the temporarily occupied territories of Kherson oblast.

To counteract leakage of information about the movement of occupation units at the railway station of the settlement of Sokolohirne, the invaders have intensified filtering measures.

In the temporarily occupied territories of Kharkiv, Donetsk, Zaporizhzhia and Kherson oblasts, in preparation for the so-called “referendums”, the occupiers call on local residents who have left the temporarily occupied territory to return to their homes by October 1. In case of refusal, the russian invaders threaten to ‘nationalize’ their housing.

In the occupied part of the Chuhuiv district of  Kharkiv oblast, the enemy began active measures to forcibly mobilize the local population. Men of draft age are detained and sent to Vovchansk to the so-called ‘recruiting center’.

Units of the Defense Forces hold their positions and do not allow the advance of the enemy. The Ukrainian military successfully repulsed enemy attacks near Kostiantynivka, Dovhenke, Dibrovne, Hryhorivka, Kamianka, Marinka,  Nevelske, Pervomaiske, Soledar.

Rocket troops and artillery of ground groups of our troops continue to perform tasks of counter-battery warfare, destroying control and logistics systems, eliminating enemy manpower and military equipment.

During the current day, to support the actions of ground groups, the aviation of the Defense Forces carried out over 12 strikes, hitting 2 platoon strongholds, 6 buildups of manpower and military equipment and 2 anti-aircraft missile systems of the enemy. Air defense units of our troops destroyed two UAVs. Enemy losses are being clarified.

On September 8, Deputy Head of the Main Operational Department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Oleksii Hromov reported at a briefing that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already returned more than 700 square kilometers in Kharkiv and the South Buh directions to government control. He also added that now our military units have wedged up to 50 kilometers deep into the defense of the enemy towards Kharkiv. Filtration actions continue in a number of settlements.

The Official Channel of the President of Ukraine informs that U.S. State Secretary Antony Blinken came to Kyiv to meet with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy. “It is an important signal for us, confirmation of the leadership support that exists today among the countries of the world, support for Ukraine in the war for our freedom, democracy, our people, and our land, in the war with the russian aggressor. We are grateful for this signal, for the great support you provide every day,” Zelenskyy said.

Ukraine hit more than 400 russian targets using HIMARS reactive systems supplied by the United States. Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the United States, General Mark Milley, reports this at the Ramstein Air Base in Germany and adds that hitting enemy targets complicates operation of russian supply channels and reduces their combat capability.
