Ukraine briefly

It has been the 206th day of Ukraine’s resistance to the russian military agression.

Here is operational information from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as of 6pm:

The enemy continues to focus on conducting the defensive and holding the occupied territories, trying to completely occupy Donetsk oblast, as well as disrupting the advance of Ukrainian Defense Forces in certain areas. Invaders shell our positions along the contact line, take measures to regroup troops in certain directions, use reserves and conduct aerial reconnaissance.

The russian occupiers are shelling residential buildings and civilian infrastructure in violation of the International Humanitarian Law, laws and customs of warfare.

The enemy inflicted 4 missile and 15 air strikes, carried out more than 20 attacks from multiple launch rocket systems on military and civilian targets on the territory of Ukraine.

The infrastructure of more than 30 settlements was affected, notably of Druzhkivka, Kharkiv, Kostiantynivka, Krasnohorivka, Kryvyi Rih, Marinka, Myrolubivka, Nikopol, New York, Ochakiv, Orikhiv, Poltavka, Siversk, and Zaporizhzhia. There is a constant threat of air and missile strikes throughout Ukraine.

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

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

towards Siversk, Bleshnia, Chernihiv Oblast, as well as Khliborob and Kindrativka, Sumy oblast;

towards Kharkiv, in particular from the russian territory – Anyskino, Bakhtyn, Dvorichna, Hoptivka, Horokhovatka, Kamianka, Kharkiv, Kudiivka, Kupiansk, and Senkove;

Due to successful actions of the Defense Forces, the occupiers are preparing ways of retreat and disable all crossings over the Dnipro towards Kherson. In the area of the Kakhovka HPP,  they flooded 9 carriages to build a river crossing. At the same time, occupation authorities continue to force local entrepreneurs to pay in russian rubles. The invaders conduct weekly inspections and threaten to “nationalize”, i.e. take away business in case of refusal to cooperate with them.

On September 17, units of the Defense Forces repulsed enemy attacks in the areas of Bakhmut, Mykolaivka Druha, Novomykhailivka, Pervomaiske and Zaitseve.

The death toll of 180 occupiers in Kherson was confirmed. The strike was inflicted on September 10 on the building of the LLC Alkoresurs, which housed enemy personnel and military equipment.

In addition, Ukrainian air defense units shot down one enemy UAV. Rocket troops and artillery inflicted fire damage on the enemy’s control point and ammunition depot.

By the end of October, the Ministry of Internal Affairs will launch the Unified Register of Weapons by making appropriate changes to departmental bylaws if the law on legalization of weapons is not adopted. According to Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Ihor Bondarenko, this register will provide Ukrainians with the opportunity to find information about themselves, understand the relevance of deadlines for documents, and receive new services. Also, the system will document all weapon-related information: import, production, sale and destruction. This will help to avoid illegal arms trafficking.

Deputy Minister of Internal Affairs Ihor Bondarenko reports that the emergency assistance system under a single number 112 will be operational by the end of the year in a pilot mode in Kyiv and Kyiv oblast. The system aims to provide emergency assistance to the population on the single-window principle through an uninterrupted communication channel to all emergency services throughout Ukraine.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal announces that Ukraine received a $1.5 billion grant from the World Bank Trust Fund. These funds will be used to reimburse budget expenditures for pension payments and social assistance programs.

The mass grave in Izium counts more than 450 graves. It is a tragic and horrific consequence of the six-month occupation.

Ukrainian troops found an officer’s headquarters in the de-occupied Mali Prokhody village, where russian invaders stayed. They set it up in the private house of a Ukrainian family. The house was completely destroyed inside and their drawings were left on the walls after the russians’ withdrawal.

Investigators also discovered a possible prison in the de-occupied Kozacha Lopan. According to the Prosecutor’s Office, russian invaders created a pseudo-legal body where civilians were tortured in the basement.

Referring to the Security Service of Ukraine, law enforcers are gathering evidence about torture in de-occupied Kupiansk. Russian FSB agents tortured a resident with electric shocks and left crosses on his body with hot iron. What else is known from the victim’s testimony:

  • everyone, who was questioned by the executioners from the russian FSB, had to go through mockery;
  • the invaders “beat out” the names and addresses of ATO participants, territorial defenders and people who had a pro-Ukrainian position;
  • the civilians were threatened with execution on a minefield and violence against the families remaining under the occupation;
  • at the first interrogation, the victim was beaten for about 40 minutes with electric shocks, shot with an unspecified type of weapon and beaten with bats or iron pipes;
  • conditions were horrific: 8 people were held in a small cell meant for two people.

Such actions of russian invaders fall within the terms of torture and other cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment. This is clearly stated in the 1984 UN Convention against Torture, to which the russian federation is a member.

The Security Service is currently investigating to identify all residents of the de-occupied territories who have suffered torture by russians.
