Battlefield update:


Traditional clashes at north near Dementiivka


๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ captured Mazanivka and Dmytrivka, hitting ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ in the flank. There are still quite a lot of ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ, a serious offensive would require Ukraine to be outnumbering them. ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ being pushed back also near Dovhenke-Bohorodychne, making garrison in Dolyna feel uncomfortable. Near Izium the Russians had serious and strong group, but it was unable advance for 120 days, now it’s being pushed back.


No actions, Russians forces were stopped hard.


๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ are advancing a few hundred meters per day near Pokrovske and Bakhmutske. Near Zaitseve, ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ are trying to encircle ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ forces near Kadema. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ is aware of this, let’s wait for response.


๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ are advancing on Vesele at north. Ukraine is prepared to retreat if in danger, its main resource is army and people, land can be taken back. This is unlike Russian strategy who are ready to throw in thousands to take a small town. Near Pisky the Russians are making videos of advances for 3 days, but the advances are minimal. ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ artillery is halting ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ advances.


Russian forces attempted an attack but failed and retreated.


Russians keep concentrating forces near Tokmak, Melitopol, Enerhodar, currently about 12 BTGs, less than near Kherson. It’s not enough to attack Zaporozhye, but they can defend or create a small distracting attack.


Some Russian units are being concentrated, unknown if they will move to Melitopol or Kherson


Russians forces are finalizing preparations for an offensive, appears to plan an attack towards on Kryvyi Rih and Mykolaiv, another group tasked with stopping ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ advances near Posad-Pokrovske and setting up defences. Russians are also worried of the ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ foothold near Davydiv Brid. There are 15 BTGs on right bank, 4-6 BTGs on left bank, some more catching up, total about 30 BTGs. However, these ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ BTGs are weak and inflated, with low morale, and ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ keeps destroying their logistics. Three strikes at ammo warehouses today, yesterday the rail bridge was hit. Looks like those ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ units can be considered dead already – battles have not started, but their logistics are already in chaos. Best they could hope would be in defence. Three bridges over Dnieper are getting bombarded regularly, they don’t have enough throughput to supply offensive.

Yesterday near Kharkiv-Izium ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ paratroopers met a ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ motorized regiment, and started firing, expecting a good fight, but ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ simply fled.

๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ท Iranian drones:

Reports of 46 ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡ท Iranian drones delivered to ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ, some already in use. Assessing their danger, it depends on who and how will use them, but that won’t become a factor in war. For significant results, ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ would need 10 times more.

๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡พ Belarus:

There is no risk or danger from ๐Ÿ‡ง๐Ÿ‡พ, not now, not in future. In the mobilisation exercises, 90% of the mobilised didn’t show up.

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ Visas:

๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ช Estonia proposing to stop issuing visas to ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ citizens. Unclear if ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡บ would agree, as they it made exemptions for sanctions in ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡น rail transport, so it’s a collective decision that may be overruled.


๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ญ Switzerland joined sanctions, it’s a big deal, because usually they are neutral. Switzerland preserves its sovereignty and neutrality, and it supporting a side in this war is huge.

Natural gas:

๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ is refusing to accept the repaired turbine, preparing to take losses. Everyone now understands who they were dealing with. Europe is preparing to get rid of the ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ gas, it’s a question of terms and compensations. ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช decreasing dependency from 45% to 25%. Europe started to get corrupt, with introduction of ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ energy, departure won’t be easy. If it can be solved in 1 half-cold winter, next winter will be easier. Of course, nobody would freeze, it would just cost more. If all problems could be solved so easily.

Amnesty International report:

Report claims, ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ forces in cities are endangering civilians. Feygin has personally experienced unfair attitude from AI, refusing to assist somebody, because they are accused by ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ government. No harsh reports against ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ, because ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ has local branch, which could get closed.
๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ special agents are infiltrating most international organizations with a goal to corrupt, obtain control and necessary reports, when it’s needed. Those reports from international organizations actually influence a lot in various governments. Modern warfare is battles for controlling cities, so it’s logical that army is there.

A. Shariy:

Who is Shariy? From a Ukrainian journalist to a popular blogger and pro-Russian politician - ะ”ะตั‚ะตะบั‚ะพั€ ะผะตะดั–ะฐ.

๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡น Lithuania started a criminal investigation against the Ukrainian pro-Russian journalist and politician (propagandist) Anatoly Shariy, accusing his fn money laundering and receiving funds from Russia. Audio recording, where Shariy admits receiving โ‚ฌ 670k, but denies receiving it from ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ citizens, and claims receiving it from Google. When deported to ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡น, he could later be transferred to ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ, and possibly reveal large ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ agent network. Call to ๐Ÿ‡ฑ๐Ÿ‡น officials, to speed up this case, as Shariy can reveal a lot of valuable information, that helps to liberate south of ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ.
