Ukraine briefly

It has been the 217th day of Ukrainian people’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 trying to completely occupy Donetsk Oblast and hold temporarily occupied territories, conduct defensive actions on the occupied frontiers, and prevent the advance of the Defense Forces in certain areas. The positions of our troops along the contact line were shelled, and aerial reconnaissance was conducted. Strikes were carried out on civilian infrastructure and civilian homes, violating the norms of International Humanitarian Law, the laws and customs of warfare. There is a constant threat of air and missile strikes throughout Ukraine.

During the current day, the occupiers inflicted 2 missile and 3 air strikes, carried out more than 6 attacks from multiple launch rocket systems.

During the current day, the occupiers inflicted 2 missile and 3 air strikes, carried out over 6 attacks from multiple launch rocket systems. 

Over 8 settlements suffered from enemy strikes, including Bilohorivka, Marinka, Mykolaiv, Myrne, Novohryhorivka, Siversk, Ternovi Pody, and Vyshetarasivka.

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

In other directions, the enemy shelled settlements from tanks, mortars, barreled and rocket artillery, namely:

towards Siversk, Senkivka, Chernihiv Oblast;

towards Sloboda region, Hrushivka, Krasne, Senkove, Sosnivka, and Strelecha;

towards Kramatorsk, Dibrova, Ozerne, Sloviansk, Staryi Karavan and Zakitne;

towards Bakhmut, Andriivka, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Bilohorivka, Maiorsk,  Niu York, Odradivka, Opytne, Rozdolivka, Spirne, Siversk, Serebrianka, Soledar, Yakovlivka, Vesele, Vesela Dolyna, Yuriivka, and Zaitseve;

towards Avdiivka, Avdiivka, Heorhiivka, Krasnohorivka, Karlivka, Marinka, Novomykhailivka, Opytne, Pervomaiske,  Paraskoviiivka, Tonenke, Vodiane, Yelizavetivka;

towards Novopavliovka, Pavlivka, Mykilske, Neskuchne, Novoukrainka, Prechystivka, Shevchenko, Velyka Novoselka, Vuhledar, Volodymyrivka, Vremivka, Yehorivka, Zolota Nyva;

towards Zaporizhia direction, more than 20 settlements were shelled. Among them are Stepove, Pavlivka, Novopil, Orikhiv, Temyrovka, Olhivske and Huliaipole.

Towards the South Buh, over 25 settlements along the contact line, including Nikopol, were shelled with tanks, mortars and barreled artillery. In order to conduct reconnaissance, adjust fire and strike civilian infrastructure, the enemy carried out up to 40 UAV sorties in this direction. 

In the russian federation and parts of Ukraine temporarily occupied by russia, so-called ‘partial’ mobilization measures continue. In remote settlements of the russian federation, the entire male population of a certain age category is subject to mobilization, despite the lack of experience in military service in the past and combat experience. There are frequent cases of mobilization of persons with disabilities, cancer patients, parents with many children and persons over sixty years old. In some regions, the population is trying to resist forced mobilization.

Poor implementation of mobilization measures was observed in Belgorod and Rostov oblasts. Thus, newly arrived personnel must purchase winter uniforms and protective equipment at their own expense.

There is a tendency for persons of draft age to search for ways to avoid mobilization. Thus, in the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, men try to bribe, go abroad, find a job at a critical infrastructure enterprise or commit a petty crime.

During the current day, units of the Defense Forces of Ukraine repulsed enemy attacks in the areas of Bezimenne, Maiorsk, Mykolaivka Druha, Novomykhailivka, Odradivka, Ozerianivka, Pavlivka, Pervomaiske, Pobieda, Zalizne, and Zaitseve, .To support the actions of ground groups, aviation of the Defense Forces hit two enemy strongholds.

Rocket troops and artillery hit an enemy command post, four buildups of enemy manpower and equipment, and one repeater station.

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine has allocated more than UAH 60.5 million from the reserve fund of the state budget to reimburse utility costs for May. This was reported by the Ministry for Communities and Territories Development of Ukraine. Communities that sheltered IDPs free of charge in communal and state institutions, as well as private educational institutions will receive reimbursement of utility costs. The relevant order was adopted by the government at a meeting on September 27.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy signed a law that partially returns the excise tax on fuel. This was reported on the website of the Verkhovna Rada in the card of the draft law No7668-d.

The value added tax for these fuels remains about 7%. The law makes an exception for fuel for the needs of the military. If the customer of such fuel is the Ministry of Defense, the excise tax will be 0 euros per 1000 liters. The privilege will be valid for the period of martial law and a state of emergency.
