It has been the 203rd day of Ukraine’s resistance to the russian military invasion.

Ukraine briefly

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

The enemy continued to focus its efforts on trying to completely occupy Donetsk Oblast, holding the occupied territories and disrupting the offensive actions of the Defense Forces in certain areas. The enemy is firing at the positions of our units along the entire contact line, trying to restore the lost position, moving its troops and conducting aerial reconnaissance.

Also, the enemy continues to terrorize the civilian population of Ukraine, violating the laws and customs of warfare. The infrastructure of more than 15 settlements, including Bilohorivka, Spirne, Verkhnekiamenske, Stepove, Sukhyi Stavok, Bilohirrka, Bezimenne and Mala Seideminukha, suffered from air and missile strikes. At night, the enemy launched missile strikes on the civilian infrastructure of Mykolaiv and Kramatorsk. In total, during the current day, there were 8 missile and 4 air strikes as well as 15 attacks from enemy multiple launch rocket systems. There is a constant threat of air and missile strikes throughout Ukraine.

Towards Volyn and Polissia, the situation has not changed significantly.

Towards Siversk, the enemy fired tanks, mortars and artillery at the areas of the settlements of Bleshnia and Senkivka in Chernihiv Oblast and Novovasylivka and Stepne in Sumy Oblast.

Towards Kharkiv, intensity of enemy shelling has decreased significantly. The settlements of Basove and Kupiansk came under fire.

In other directions, the enemy shelled military and civilian infrastructure from tanks, mortars and artillery, namely:

towards Kramatorsk, Bilohorivka, Dronivka, Kryva Luka, Raihorodok, Siversk, Spirne,Tatianivka,  Verkhnekamianske, Yaremivka,and Zvanivka;

towards Bakhmut, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Bilohorivka, Hryhorivka, Mykolaivka, Mykolaivka Druha, Niu York, Soledar, Vesele, Yuriivka Yakovlivka, and Zaitsevo;

towards Avdiivka, Avdiivka, Krasnohorivka, Marinka, Opytne, Pervomaiske,  Vodiane, Umanske, and Novomykhailivka;

towards Zaporizhzhia, Bohoiavlenka, Huliaipole, Mali Shcherbaky, Novopil, Neskuchne, Orikhiv, Pavlivka, Poltavka, Vremivka, Velyka Novosilka, Vuhledar, Zhaliznychne and Zelene Pole;

towards the South Buh, the settlements of Andriivka, Arkhanhelsk, Bilohirka, Blahodatne, Kamiane, Myrne, Partizanske, Sukhyi Stavok, Tavriiske, Ternovi Pody, and Vysokopolia, Zarichne.

As a result of successful actions of the Defense Forces and destruction of a large number of invaders, their moral and psychological state is extremely low. The command of the occupying forces is trying to force the personnel to participate in hostilities, threatening to send them to the leading edge positions without weapons. As a result, up to 50 mobilized servicemen of the occupying forces from the city of Horlivka wrote reports on the refusal to further participate in hostilities.

To preserve certain samples of military equipment, the command of the enemy’s air defense units is trying to organize evacuation of air defense systems deep into the temporarily occupied territories and to the russian federation. Thus, on the night of September 11-12, in Luhansk Oblast, columns with S-300 and Buk complexes were seen moving from the settlement of Lutuhyne towards the russian-Ukrainian border.

Towards Donetsk, the enemy does not stop trying to advance deep into our territory. The defense forces repulsed enemy attacks in the areas of  Maiorsk, Novomykhailivka, Odradivka, Spirne, Soledar, Vesela Dolyna, Vodiane and Zaitseve.

To support the actions of ground groups, aircraft of the Defense Forces carried out 11 strikes – six positions and buildups of enemy manpower and equipment, three positions of anti-aircraft missile systems were hit, one enemy aircraft was shot down.

Units of the Rocket Forces and Artillery attacked the control points, buildups of enemy manpower and military equipment. It is confirmed that four Grad multiple launch rocket systems in Kherson Oblast and a food warehouse of the occupiers in Dokuchaievsk were destroyed on September 12.

Deputy Minister of Defense of Ukraine Hanna Maliar reports that in Kharkiv Oblast, Ukrainian troops managed to liberate about 388 settlements and 150K people. She also added that this information should be perceived in the general context of the war, since the front line is 2500 km, and active hostilities are taking place on the 1300 km line.

The government is developing a plan according to which the technical part of the negotiations on Ukraine’s accession to the EU can take only two years. This was emphasized by Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal. “After all, what other country could answer the questionnaire in just three weeks? And for what other country the period between applying for the candidate status and its obtaining lasted only 3 months? However, when I talk about the possibility of very quick negotiations with the EU, I am not only based on this speed. The government has already developed a roadmap that outlines how to get this way in two years, fixes our bottlenecks and determines how to get through them. This gives me grounds for such optimism,” he explained.
