Heavy casualties for Russia: Britain pledges support to Ukraine
+++ 5.44 p.m.: Is Russia now even more resorting to terror because of its own heavy losses? British Prime Minister Liz Truss, at least, sees this morning’s attacks as “a sign of Ukraine’s success and the increasing desperation” of Russian President Vladimir Putin, a British government spokesman said after the Prime Minister spoke on the phone with Volodymyr Zelenskyy.
Truss strongly condemned the attacks and told the Ukrainian President that Putin’s “destructive rhetoric and behavior” would not change Britain’s determination to stand firmly with Ukraine.
Heavy Losses for Russia: Ukraine Destroys “Kamikaze Drones”
+++ 5:24 p.m.: According to their own statements, Ukrainian forces shot down several kamikaze drones during the morning’s massive Russian missile attack. “Nine of the twelve ‘Shaheds’ were shot down by anti-aircraft forces. These are kamikaze drones that the enemy is now also actively using,” said Yuriy Ihnat, spokesman for the Air Force Command. Iran had delivered a large number of its dreaded unmanned aerial vehicles to Russia more than a month ago.
Heavy Losses: Kyiv Attacks Supply Routes – “Russia’s Greatest Weakness”
+++ 2.46 p.m.: The attack on the Crimean Bridge deals a heavy blow to Russia in the Ukraine war. In addition to the symbolic value that the bridge has for President Vladimir Putin, his troops needed the land connection as a supply route. According to an analysis by the US news channel CNN The attack also reveals “the greatest weakness of the Russian army”: it relies primarily on railway lines for its supply routes.
The rail lines, in turn, are easy targets for Ukrainian counterattacks. Also on Saturday, another important rail link in Russia was damaged. In the city of Ilovaisk, south-east of Donetsk, a supply train exploded in the station. The shelling by Ukrainian infantry is said to have been responsible for this.
Ukraine inflicts casualties on Russia’s air force
+++ 1.40 p.m.: While Russia has suffered heavy casualties in the Ukraine war, it still has more than enough capability to launch missile attacks into Ukraine. However, according to their commander-in-chief, Ukrainian forces have at least managed to intercept 41 Russian missiles fired at Ukrainian territory this morning. “This morning 75 rockets were launched. 41 of them were neutralized by our air defenses,” General Valeriy Zaluzhnyi wrote on Twitter.
News about the Ukraine war: Stock exchange in Moscow crashes
+++ 12.26 p.m.: In the Ukraine war, Russia not only has to take heavy losses on the battlefield. The country is also suffering economically from the ongoing hostilities. The stock exchange in Moscow fell by almost 12 percent on Monday morning. This is reported by the Moscow Times website. The ruble also lost significant value again. The Russian currency had recovered in recent months after falling sharply at the start of the invasion.
Update, 11:25 a.m.: The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy responded to Russia’s missile attacks on his country. Zelenskyy addressed his population with a video message from the streets of Kiev – according to the Kyiv Independent website, just a few blocks from the spot where Russian missiles had hit hours earlier.
Zelenskyy continued to be confident of victory: “There may be temporary power cuts now, but they won’t be able to break our confidence in victory.” According to the Ukrainian President, Russia’s attacks are trying to destroy the country’s power grid. This is intended to cause panic among the population and chaos in the cities.
Ukraine war: Russia loses more and more tanks to the enemy
First report: Kyiv – Even after more than 100 days of war with Russia, Ukraine is able to repel enemy attacks. While the defenders celebrate symbolically important successes such as the destruction of the Crimean Bridge, Moscow’s troops are suffering increasing losses.
This applies above all to Russia’s heavy equipment, which is used in the Ukraine war. The troops of Kiev are said to have taken over a number of enemy military vehicles. Videos online are said to show Ukrainian soldiers removing captured howitzers and other artillery pieces. It seems Kyiv as well as being able to take control of more and more tanks. According to British intelligence, more than half of the tanks that Ukraine is currently using in the war against Russia are originally Russian-owned. Ukraine has so far captured “at least 440 Russian tanks and another 650 armored vehicles”.
Ukraine War: British intelligence on state of Russian army
According to British intelligence, the fact that Ukraine is able to take over so many enemy vehicles also allows conclusions to be drawn about the state of the Russian army. “The failure of Russian troops to destroy their equipment before retreating demonstrates the poor training of the soldiers and the poor morale of the troops,” the agency said on Twitter. A spokesman for the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense commented on this fact in mid-September: “Russia is trying to maintain its status as the largest arms supplier to the Ukrainian army.”
