+++ 11:46 am: Ukrainian military intelligence estimates that Russia is preparing for war by October. U.S. military experts at the Institute for the Study of War (ISW) cited Vadim Skipiskiz, deputy director of intelligence. He believes Russia wants to continue the war for another 120 days. However, success in Donbass is always crucial to the plans. Meanwhile, ISW experts believe that Russia does not have large reserves of trained armed forces. This assumption is caused by the lack of staff on the front. In addition, Skipyskiz announced that the Russians had 40 more battalions. There are already 103 battalions in Ukraine.

Kiev – In the Ukraine war, the attackers from Russia claimed the next big victory. According to Ukrainian officials, Kremlin forces now control the city of Sverdlovsk in the east of the country. Nevertheless, bitter street fighting continues in many parts of the city. “The situation is tense. Fighting continues, but unfortunately the city is largely under Russian control,” Sergei Hajde, governor of the Luhansk region, was quoted as saying by CNN.

But the war in Ukraine did not erupt only in the Sverdlovsk region. Surrounding small towns such as Popasna or Lyssychansk were also the scene of fierce fighting. In many places, the Russian military is said to have begun bombing civilian infrastructure. According to the Ukrainian military, the guards were able to prevent an attack on the suburb of Metalkino. The Russian army had to leave the suburbs.

Morning situation in the war in Ukraine: Russia uses new types of artillery

The Russia’s regional gains in the Ukraine war Let us go back to the use of thermoparic rocket cannons. This is what Hajdaj said on Ukrainian television. With the new weapons system, Russia will “destroy from the ground to the ground” the buildings used as hideouts by the Ukrainian military. In turn, this forces Ukrainian troops to constantly change positions.

In a speech to the people of Ukraine tonight, the President praised Volodymyr Zelenskyy Armed forces in the east of the country. “He was proud of our defenders who were able to stop the advance of the enemy and occupying forces for several weeks.” “Siverodonetsk is the center of the war in the east of the country,” Zelesnkyj said.

Ukraine War: The Battle of Zhivorodonetsk is reminiscent of Mariupol

Like Mariupol, the war for Cerotonetsk will eventually end in front of a large industrial plant. The Azote chemical plant is located in the city in question, and is said to have accommodated up to 800 civilians in a large building complex. Also, 400 Ukrainian soldiers are said to be stationed there. These numbers are based on information from Rodion Miroshnik, President of the self-proclaimed Republic of Luhansk, Russia. Someone is already in talks with the military about evacuating civilians.

Fierce fighting in the Ukrainian war has also been reported from the south of the country. The forces there are caught in a battle of stagnant trenches. “The Russians are not reducing ammunition,” a Ukrainian military militant told the British news channel Sky. On the other hand, the company’s own reserves will be depleted. This was confirmed by the senior official of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense Vadim Skipitsky. He demanded that new weapons be sent from the West as soon as possible. “It has long been an artillery battle,” Skipitsky said, according to the British Guardian. (Dil / DPA)
