Ukraine briefly

It has been the 219th 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 to focus its efforts on trying to completely occupy Donetsk oblast, holding the temporarily occupied territories, and disrupting the advance of the Defense Forces in certain areas.

The enemy shells the positions of our troops along the contact line, conducting aerial reconnaissance. It strikes civilian infrastructure and civilians’ homes, violating international humanitarian law, laws and customs of warfare.

The enemy inflicted 3 missile and 5 air strikes, carried out more than 15 attacks from multiple launch rocket systems on military and civilian targets on the territory of Ukraine.

On the morning of September 30, the russian occupiers committed another act of terrorism, launched a missile strike on a convoy of civilian vehicles that were moving through the territory of Zaporizhia Oblast for humanitarian purposes. The strikes were inflicted by S-300 missiles. According to preliminary information, at least 25 people were killed and many more were injured.

Besides, to destroy the civilian infrastructure of cities, the enemy continues to use Iranian-made Shahed-136 strike UAVs.

More than 25 settlements were damaged by enemy strikes. In particular, Bilohorivka, Blahodativka, Huliaipole, Kostiantynivka, Mykolaiv, Myroliubivka, Novoandriivka, Ridkodub, and Zaporizhzhia.

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

In other directions, the enemy continues to shell settlements from tanks and artillery of various types:

towards Sloboda region, Kupiansk, Neskuchne, Prystin, Strelecha, Udy, andZelene;

towards Kramatorsk, Bilohorivka, Blakytni Ozera, Verkhniokamianske;

in the Bakhmut, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Niu York, Soledar, Spirne, and Zaitseve;

in the Avdiivka, Avdiivka, Karlivka, Krasnohorivka, Marinka, Novomykhailivka, Pervomaiske, Tonenke, and Vodiane;

Partial mobilization continues in the russian federation. In the Khabarovsk Territory, officials responsible for selection and preparation of the mobilization resource have established new corruption ‘tariffs’. Thus, a delay from mobilization costs 100K rubles, which is almost unaffordable for the majority of the local population.

The occupation command is trying to implement measures of forced mobilization in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. In Kherson, cases of detention of local men of draft age have become more frequent. After a superficial determination of suitability for military service, they are sent to units planned to be used in the area of hostilities. In Berdiansk, employees of some enterprises who remained to work in the occupied territory were forcibly mobilized. In addition, reinforced units of the Russian Guard arrived in the city to suppress the likely resistance of the local population.

The members of the National Security and Defense Council considered the issue of the rf’s attempts to annex the territory of Ukraine and escalation of armed aggression. Ways to counter the aggressor country’s attempts to annex Ukrainian territories were discussed.
