It has been the 202nd 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 continues to focus its efforts on attempts to completely occupy the Donetsk region, to hold temporarily occupied territories and to disrupt the advance of our troops in certain areas. There is constant shelling of our positions along the contact line. Certain measures are taken to regroup their troops in some directions and conduct aerial reconnaissance. There is an ongoung threat of enemy air and missile strikes throughout Ukraine.

The enemy continues to strike civilians and civilian infrastructure, violating international humanitarian law, laws and customs of warfare. There were air and missile strikes, targeting infrastructure in the areas of Bila Krynytsia, Bilohorivka, Kamianka, Kostromka, Mali Shcherbaky, Mykolaivka, Myrne, Niu York, Pervomaiske, Stepove, Sukhyi Stavok, Verkhnekamianske, Vesela Dolyna, Vremivka, Yuriivka, Zaitseve. 

The enemy inflicted 2 missile and 8 air strikes, conducted 13 attacks from rocket artillery systems on targets on the territory of Ukraine.

Towards Volyn and Polissia, the situation has not changed significantly. As part of the command and staff exercise at the Brestsky training ground, the armed forces of the republic of belarus worked the actions with live shooting to repel the offensive of a conditional enemy, followed by its expulsion outside the country.

In other directions, the enemy fired at our infrastructure from tanks, mortars and artillery, namely:

towards Siversk, the settlements of Hai, Mikhalchina Sloboda, Chernihiv Oblast and Atynske, Hudove, Kharkivka, Stukalivka, and Tovstodubovo, Sumy oblast;

towards Kharkiv, Baranivka, Kozacha Lopan, Kupiansk;

towards Kramatorsk, Bilohorivka, Hryhorivka, Kramatorsk, Maiaky, Pryshyb, Rozdolivka, Sloviansk, Staryi Karavan, Starodubivka, Spirne, Verkhnekamianske, Yaremivka, and Zakitne;

towards Bakhmut, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Mykolaivka Druha, Sukha Balka, Soledar, Vesela Dolyna, Vyimka Yakovlivka and Zaitseve;

towards Avdiivka, Avdiivka, Orlivka, Lastochkyne, Krasnohorivka, Opytne, Vodiane, Pervomaiske, Marinka and Novomykhailivka;

towards Novopavlivka, Novoukrainka, Prechystivka, Vremivka and Vuhledar;

towards Zaporizhzhia, Bilohiria, Huliaipole, Charivne, Kamianske, Mala Tokmachka, Shcherbaky, Mali Shcherbaky, Nesterianka, Novopil, Orikhiv, Temyrivka and Zhaliznychne.

Towards the South Buh, over 25 settlements were subject to artillery shelling. In addition, the enemy intensively conducted aerial UAV reconnaissance making about 70 sorties.

Russian occupation forces continue looting. On the section of the Starobilsk – Luhansk highway, towards Luhansk, about three hundred civilian cars were noticed, mainly with state license plates of Kharkiv oblast. Most of the vehicles with trailers loaded with looted property are driven by the russian military. A similar trend is observed in the settlements of temporarily occupied territories in the south of Ukraine. In the city of Polohy, Zaporizhzhia oblast, russian occupiers break down the gates of garages and steal private cars of local residents. In Nova Kakhovka, Kherson oblast, the invaders began to massively loot furniture and household appliances from temporarily abandoned dwellings.

The russian military leadership is taking measures to replenish the occupying army with junior officers. According to available information, the early graduation of cadets of the 5th year of the Black Sea Higher Naval School named after Nakhimov was announced in December this year. Early graduations will take place at other educational institutions of the Ministry of Defense of the russian federation.

The shortage of tactical commanders is due to refusal of reserve officers to sign contracts in light of recent events. The decline in the moral and psychological state of the enemy personnel continues. The occupiers inflict self-injuries to get medical aid in a medical institution and avoid participation in hostilities on the territory of Ukraine. Many servicemen do not return to military units when the vacation period is over.

The Defense Forces successfully repelled enemy attacks in the areas of the settlements of Avdiivka, Bezimenne, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Novohryhorivka, Odradivka, Vesela Dolyna, and Zaitseve.

To support the actions of ground groups, aircraft of the Defense Forces carried out two strikes on positions and buildups of enemy manpower and equipment.

Units of the Rocket Forces and Artillery attacked control points, buildups of enemy manpower and military equipment. The enemy ammunition depots were destroyed near the city of Kherson on September 11.


Ukraine has launched the Made with Bravery marketplace. This is an electronic platform selling domestic goods. This was announced by the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy. It aims at uniting Ukrainian producers into a community, promoting Ukrainian products abroad and facilitating exports of Ukrainian goods. It will also contribute to Ukrainian business and reconstruction of Ukraine.

The Main Directorate of Intelligence reports that russian occupiers are urgently evacuating their families from Crimea and southern Ukraine. Representatives of the occupation administration of Crimea, FSB officers and commanders of some military units are secretly trying to sell their homes to subordinates and immediately remove relatives from the peninsula. The occupiers also banned concluding agreements on sale and purchase of housing, imposed restrictions on movement on the Crimean bridge and are trying in every possible way to block access to the information about counter-offensive actions of the defenders of Ukraine.

The Adviser to the Head of the President’s Office Mykhailo Podoliak stated on his Twitter that Ukraine needs more air defense systems to protect critical infrastructure. Russia is waging the war with civilians. Ukraine should be prepared for different situations. ‘Liberation of Luhansk or Donetsk will cause a domino effect, collapse the russian front and lead to political destabilization in russia. It is real. We need a will (weapon).’

The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy had a phone conversation with IMF Managing Director Kristalina Georgieva. He wrote about this on his Twitter. Volodymyr Zelenskyy thanked the International Monetary Fund for receiving an additional $ 1.4 billion under the emergency financing program. They also discussed future cooperation to strengthen Ukraine’s financial stability.
