War in Ukraine today: latest news, November 09, 2022 (photo)

It has been the 259th day of the Ukrainian resistance to the russian military aggression. 

What happened in Ukraine today:

Here is operational information of the General Staff as of 18.00: 

The enemy inflicted 8 missile and 10 air strikes, carried out more than 4 attacks from multiple launch rocket systems.

The enemy’s strikes affected more than 15 settlements of Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Mykolaiv and Sumy oblasts.

The situation did not significantly change towards Volyn and Polissia.  The republic of belarus continues to support the armed aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine, hosting russian servicemen, providing training grounds and airspace. The joint russian and belarusian grouping of troops on the territory of the republic of belarus is being formed. There is a constant threat of launching air strikes, including UAV attacks from the territory and airspace of the republic of belarus.

In other directions, the enemy fired towards:

Siversk from barrel and jet artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Novomykolaivka and Ulanove, Sumy oblast, also, the enemy used a strike UAV;

Sloboda from mortars, rocket and barrel artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Hryhorivka and Kolodyazne, a strike UAV was used;

Kupiansk and Lyman with artillery of various types, in the areas of the settlements of Kupiansk and Bilohorivka;

Bakhmut from tanks and the entire spectrum of artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Bilohorivka, Opytne, Niu York and Pivdenne;

Avdiivka from tanks, mortars, barreled and rocket artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Vuhledar, Kamianka, Vesele and Novobakhmutivka;

Novopavlivka and Zaporizhzhia from tanks and multi-caliber artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Vremivka and Kamianske.

Towards the South Buh, more than 25 settlements near the contact line were shelled. In addition, the enemy continued to conduct aerial reconnaissance, using UAVs. There were over 50 sorties.

The mobilized russian citizens who are trained in Kursk and Bryansk oblasts have a significant deterioration in the moral and psychological state due to the difference between the picture of Russian propaganda and the actual situation, inhuman conditions of stay and the lack of promised payments.

Russian units undergoing training in the area of Baranovichi, Brest oblast, were provided with obsolete weapons and property – metal helmets of the World War II model and protective equipment of 1960-70s. In addition, a significant part of small arms, namely AK-74 assault rifles, are inoperative due to poor storage conditions.

According to the updated information, russian occupiers are taking looted property and stolen cars out of the city of Sievierodonetsk, Luhansk region. Looting occurs under the guise and accompanied by representatives of the occupying so-called state security agencies.

Aviation of the Defense Forces of Ukraine inflicted 4 strikes on the enemy, hitting 2 buildups of personnel, weapons and military equipment, as well as 2 positions of enemy air defense equipment. 

Also, in different directions our soldiers shot down 5 Shahed and 2 Orlan UAVs .

Units of rocket forces and artillery of the Defense Forces affected 6 buildups of manpower, weapons and military equipment, 2 stations of electronic warfare and other important military targets of the enemy.

Head of the President’s Office Andrii Yermak says that human rights organizations decided to create an information human rights headquarters to publish important information on human rights violations during russian aggression. He also added that the headquarters will work continuously and become a platform for information support on the issues of Ukrainian prisoners held by the occupiers.

Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories Iryna Vereshchuk announces that IDPs were paid more than UAH 42 billion. Monthly state aid for accommodation for persons with disabilities and children is UAH 3 K, for the rest of IDPs – UAH 2 K. There are enough funds for payments to IDPs in the budget.

What is happening now in the north of Ukraine

Kyiv oblast

Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal said that the biggest problems with electricity supply are currently in the city of Kyiv, Kyiv and Kharkiv oblasts. This is due to targeted strikes by the terrorist country on the energy infrastructure in these regions. Energy companies are trying to gradually make outage schedules more predictable for people and businesses.

Oleksii Kuleba, Head of the Kyiv RMA, said that South Korea will participate in the reconstruction of Kyiv oblast and provide it with humanitarian and financial assistance. According to him, Kyiv oblast is ready to become a pilot region to implement Korean innovation and infrastructure projects for reconstruction in Ukraine.

American actor and film director Sean Penn is visiting Ukraine for the third time during the full-scale war. This time he brought his Oscar statuette to Kyiv, which will remain in the country until victory. Penn also said that he continues to work on his film about Ukraine.

13 health care institutions of the oblast received modern medical equipment and medical products thanks to the project Improving Healthcare at the Service of People. 239 units of equipment were provided by leading international companies. This equipment will help provide high-quality and efficient medical care to residents of the oblast, forced migrants and patients affected by hostilities.

The Antonov State Enterprise specified that construction of the new MriIa air vehicle has just started. Currently, there are about 30% of components that can be used for the second sample. The cost of construction is estimated at about EUR 500 million, but “it is too early to talk about the specific amount.”

In the center of Malin, work continues every day to restore Cathedral Square after the russian airstrikes. The city council informed that the works are planned to be completed within a few weeks.

The Recovery and Sustainability psychological workshop for displaced persons is being held in Zhytomyr. It is aimed at supporting people who have survived the horrors of war. You can visit the workshop for free.

One of the largest bridges in Sumy oblast, destroyed during the war, has been restored. It was blown up to prevent the occupiers from advancing deeper. The bridge connects Sumy oblast with Chernihiv oblast and allows you to get from one region to another in the shortest way. The Novhorod-Siverskyi and Shostka communities helped to rebuild the bridge.

Residents of Shostka wrote an all-Ukrainian radio dictation without electricity or the Internet. The event, which was held at the Shostka Dobro volunteer center, coincided with the blackout, which meant that there was no Internet in the room. But this did not prevent those who wanted to join the all-Ukrainian action. The volunteers approached the problem creatively: they used a bluetooth speaker and a volunteer who stood on the street with a phone and “shared” the broadcast with the participants.

Chernihiv oblast

Spokeswoman of the Chernihiv border detachment, Halina Shekhovtsova reported that Horodnia and Snovsk communities in Chernihiv oblast were subjected to russian shelling.

Currently, the city council is collecting requests for specific needs from several military units. The head noted that some modest events are planned for children, who should not be left without a holiday.

About 300 field stoves worth about UAH 3 million were made by the Pozhmashina company for the Ukrainian military for free. The last batch of stoves went towards Bakhmut.

The police of Chernihiv oblast found and returned home all the children who had disappeared since the beginning of the year. 168 children were found, 162 of which – within the first day from the moment of notification. In order to prevent escapes, juvenile justice officers conduct preventive work with teenagers and teach them where to address for help in a difficult situation.

Thematic events are held for residents in the Snovsk community. The purpose is to “fall in love with the native language”. According to Iryna Yarmolenko, a volunteer of the Youth Space SAM, it is especially important for border residents to learn their native culture, communicate in Ukrainian, and consume national content.
