Im andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine ist die am Vortag angekündigte (Teil)Mobilmachung Russlands weiter Thema: Nach britischer Einschätzung wird schon die Musterung der angekündigten 300.000 zusätzlichen Soldaten zum Problem. Der Sammler am 22. September 2022:
• Das britische Intel Update:
On 21 September 2022, Russia’s Putin announced a ‘partial mobilisation’ to support operations in Ukraine. Russian Defence Minister Shoigu later confirmed this would involve the mobilisation of 300,000 reservist troops.
Russia is likely to struggle with the logistical and administrative challenges of even mustering the 300,000 personnel. It will probably attempt to stand up new formations with many of these troops, which are unlikely to be combat effective for months.
Even this limited mobilisation is likely to be highly unpopular with parts of the Russian population. Putin is accepting considerable political risk in the hope of generating much needed combat power.
The move is effectively an admission that Russia has exhausted its supply of willing volunteers to fight in Ukraine.
Operational update of General Staff of the UAF regarding the russian invasion as of 06:00, on September 22, 2022
The two hundred-eleventh (211) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.
The enemy continues to focus its efforts on attempts to fully occupy the Donetsk oblast, organize defense and maintain the captured territories, and also tries to disrupt the active actions of the Defense Forces in certain directions. It ires at our positions along the contact line, takes measures to regroup his troops, and constantly conducts aerial reconnaissance.
Over the past 24 hours, the enemy has launched 8 missile and 16 air strikes, fired 115 anti-aircraft missiles at military and civilian objects on the territory of Ukraine, violating the norms of international humanitarian law, the laws and customs of warfare. As a result of the attacks of the russian troops, the infrastructure of more than 40 settlements was damaged. These are, in particular, Siversk, Maryinka, Vesele, Neskuchne, Yehorivka, Bezymenne, Bilohirka, Myrolyubivka, and Visokopillya.
The threat of air and missile strikes remains on the entire territory of Ukraine.
The situation has not changed on the Volyn and Polissya directions.
In other directions, the enemy fired from tanks, mortars and artillery of various calibers:
in the Siversky direction – in the areas of Senkivka and Huta-Studenetska settlements of Chernihiv region;
in the Slobozhansk direction – in the areas of the settlements of Strelecha, Hlyboke, Morokhovets, Hatyshche, Vovchansk, Kamyanka, Kupyansk and Osykovo;
in the Kramatorsk direction – Slovyansk, Koroviy Yar, Bohorodychnye, Oleksandrivka, Yarova, Pryshyb, Dibrova, Donetske and Raihorodok;
in the Bakhmut direction – Mykolaivka, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Rozdolivka, Opytne, Yakovlivka, Bilohorivka and Mayorsk;
in the Avdiyivka direction – Krasnohorivka, Avdiyivka, Kamianka, Opytne, Maryinka and Vodyane;
about 16 settlements were affected by fire in the Novopavlivsk and Zaporizhzhya directions. Among them are Vuhledar, Prechystivka, Hulyaipilske, Neskuchne, Vremivka and Novopil.
More than 25 settlements along the contact line were shelled in the South Buh direction. In order to carry out reconnaissance, adjust fire and launch strikes on civilian infrastructure objects, the enemy made more than 30 sorties of UAVs.
Violation of the norms of International Humanitarian Law and customs of warfare remains the norm of behavior of russian servicemen in the temporarily occupied territories. Thus, in the Svativ district, in order to hide the engineering equipment of the territories, the occupiers forcibly evicted the residents of Honcharivka and Kuzmenivka settlements from their homes and took them deep into the temporarily occupied territory of the Luhansk region. In the Mykolayiv oblast the occupiers seized milk trucks from territorial communities and used them to covertly deliver fuel to the war zone.
Over the past day, units of our troops repelled enemy attacks in the areas of Zaitseve, Odradivka, and Novomykhailivka settlements.
To support the actions of the Land groupings, the Air Force of the Defense Forces carried out 41 strikes on enemy positions. It was confirmed that 21 areas of concentration of manpower and military equipment of the enemy, 4 strongholds, and 15 positions of anti-aircraft missile systems were destroyed.
Missile troops and artillery over the past day inflicted fire damage on 24 enemy objects. In particular, for 4 control points of different levels, 4 areas of concentration of personnel, weapons and military equipment, 7 warehouses of ammunition and fuel and oil materials, warehouses, 4 air defense facilities and artillery fell into the affected area.
The total losses of the enemy are being clarified.

The formation of the so-called „election commissions“ continues.
In the city of Starobilsk, Luhansk oblast, the occupation authorities forbade the local population to leave the city between September 23 and 27. According to available information, the occupiers are creating armed groups to go around homes and force people to participate in the so-called „referendum“. Preparations are being made for filming by propaganda media stories about such „active participation of local residents in voting“.
In the temporarily captured territory of the Zaporizhzhya region, local residents are promised cash rewards and household appliances for providing passport data and obtaining citizenship of the russian federation.
