Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 30. September 2022
Im andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine hat der russische Präsident Wladimir Putin erwartungsgemäß den Anschluss von vier ukrainischen Regierungsbezirken an Russland verkündet. Der Sammer am 30. September 2022:
• Mit einer Rede im Kreml und anschließender Unterzeichnung von Urkunden vollzog Putin am (heutigen) Freitag den Anschluss der ukrainischen Regionen Donezk, Luhansk, Saporischschja und Kherson an Russland. Während Donezk und Luhansk als selbst ernannte Volksrepubliken bereits zuvor von Russland anerkannt worden waren, werden die beiden anderen ukrainischen Verwaltungsbezirke direkt annektiert.
Der russische Präsident erklärte alle vier Regionen zum Teil Russlands – ungeachtet der Tatsache, dass die russischen Streitkräfte diese Gebiete nicht vollständig kontrollieren. Aus der – noch nicht vollständig als Transkript vorliegenden – Rede Putins:
Liebe russische Bürgerinnen und Bürger, Bürgerinnen und Bürger der Volksrepubliken Donezk und Luhansk, Bewohner der Regionen Saporischschja und Cherson, Abgeordnete der Staatsduma, Senatoren der Russischen Föderation!
Sie wissen, dass in den Volksrepubliken Donezk und Luhansk sowie in den Regionen Saporoschje und Cherson Referenden abgehalten wurden. Ihre Ergebnisse sind zusammengefasst worden, die Ergebnisse sind bekannt. Die Menschen haben ihre Wahl getroffen, eine eindeutige Wahl.
Heute unterzeichnen wir Verträge über die Aufnahme der Volksrepublik Donezk, der Volksrepublik Luhansk, der Region Saporoschje und der Region Cherson in Russland. Ich bin sicher, dass die Bundesversammlung die Verfassungsgesetze über die Aufnahme und Bildung von vier neuen Regionen, vier neuen Subjekten der Russischen Föderation, unterstützen wird, denn dies ist der Wille von Millionen von Menschen.
Und das ist natürlich ihr Recht, ihr unveräußerliches Recht, das in Artikel 1 der UN-Charta verankert ist, der direkt vom Grundsatz der Gleichberechtigung und Selbstbestimmung der Völker spricht.

• Als Reaktion auf das russische Vorgehen und Putins Rede kündigte der ukrainische Präsident Wolodymyr Selenskyj einen Antrag der Ukraine auf beschleunigte Mitgliedschaft in der NATO an:
We are de facto allies. This has already been achieved. De facto, we have already completed our path to NATO. De facto, we have already proven interoperability with the Alliance’s standards, they are real for Ukraine – real on the battlefield and in all aspects of our interaction.
We trust each other, we help each other and we protect each other. This is what the Alliance is. De facto.
Today, Ukraine is applying to make it de jure. Under a procedure consistent with our significance for the protection of our entire community. Under an accelerated procedure.
We know it’s possible. We have seen Finland and Sweden start accession to the Alliance this year without a Membership Action Plan.
This is fair. This is also fair for Ukraine. This is the consolidation at the level of the treaty of what has already been achieved in life and what are our values.
We understand that this requires the consensus of all members of the Alliance. We understand that it is necessary to reach such a consensus. And therefore, while this is happening, we offer to implement our proposals regarding security guarantees for Ukraine and all of Europe in accordance with the Kyiv Security Compact, which was developed and presented to our partners.
Security has no alternatives. But determination is needed to guarantee it.
We are taking our decisive step by signing Ukraine’s application for accelerated accession to NATO.
• Die Angriffe der russischen Streitkräfte auf auch zivile Einrichtungen in der Ukraine halten an, unter anderem auf Teil der Region Saporischja, die zu russischem Territorium erklärt wurde:
The most lethal strike hit in Zaporizhzhia, one of the four Ukrainian provinces that Moscow plans to declare part of Russia on Friday as part of an annexation process that has been condemned by the West as a sham and comes after a humiliating battlefield defeat. The attack killed at least 25 civilians who were waiting at a checkpoint and bus stop, and injured about 50, according to Ukraine’s prosecutor general — which would make it one of the deadliest single attacks against civilians in recent weeks.
• Nach bislang offiziell nicht bestätigten Berichten soll es ukrainischen Truppen gelungen sein, die Stadt Lyman im Osten des Landes und die dort eingesetzten russischen Truppen einzukesseln.
• Das britische Intel Update:
Medical provision for Russian combat troops in Ukraine is probably growing worse. Some newly mobilised Russian reservists have been ordered to source their own combat first aid supplies, with the advice that female sanitary products are a cost-effective solution.
Medical training and first-aid awareness is likely poor.
Some Russia troops have obtained their own modern, Western-style combat torniquets but have stowed them on their equipment using cable-ties, rather than with the Velcro provided – probably because such equipment is scarce and liable to be pilfered.
This is almost certain to hamper or render impossible the timely application of torniquet care in the case of catastrophic bleeding on the battlefield.
Russian troops’ lack of confidence in sufficient medical provision is almost certainly contributing to a declining state of morale and a lack of willingness to undertake offensive operations in many units in Ukraine.
• Das Morgenbriefing des ukrainischen Generalstabs:
The operational update of General Staff of the UAF regarding the Russian invasion as of 06:00, on September 30, 2022
The two hundred-nineteenth (219) 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 and hold the captured territories, as well as disrupt the active actions of the Defense Forces in certain directions. The enemy is shelling the positions of our troops along the contact line, conducting aerial reconnaissance. Strikes civilian infrastructure and peaceful residential areas, violating international humanitarian law, laws and customs of war. There remains the threat of air and missile strikes on the entire territory of Ukraine.
Over the past day, the russian occupiers have launched 5 missile and 11 air strikes, launched more than MLRS 100 attacks on military and civilian objects on the territory of our country.
Almost 50 settlements were affected by enemy strikes. Among them are Slovyansk, Kramatorsk, Bakhmut, Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih, Mykolayiv, Nikopol, Voznesensk, Pavlivka, Visokopillya, Bilohirka and Myrne.
The situation in the Volyn and Poliske directions has not changed significantly. At the same time, in the republic of belarus, an inspection of the means of radio technical support of the airfield network began on September 21, which may indirectly indicate the possibility of using belarusian airfields by the armed forces of the russian federation. Also, there was a rotation of aviation units of the joint training center of the Air Force and Air Defense Forces of the Armed Forces of the republic of belarus and the russian federation, with the replacement of three of the four existing Su-30M multi-purpose fighters. The threat of missile and air strikes from the territory and airspace of the republic of belarus remains.
In other directions, the enemy fired from tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, namely:
in the Siversky direction – in the areas of Senkivka and Sosnivka settlements of Chernihiv oblast and Novovasylivka and Pavlivka of Sumy oblast;
in the Slobozhanskyi direction – in the areas of Petropavlivka and Kyrylivka settlements;
in the Kramatorsk direction – in the areas of the settlements of Bohorodichne, Blakytni Ozera, Shchurove, Dibrova and Ozerne;
in the Bakhmut direction – in the areas of Verkhnokamianske, Vyimka, Spirne, Vesele, Bilohorivka, Yakovlika, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Odradivka, Zaytseve, Severnye and Mayorsk settlements;
in the Avdiyivka direction – in the areas of the settlements of Tonenke, Avdiyivka, Netaylove, Pervomaiske, Opytne, Krasnohorivka, Maryinka, and Novomykhailivka.
The enemy did not conduct active offensive actions in the Novopavlivsk and Zaporizhzhya directions. Shelling from tanks, mortars, barrel and jet artillery was recorded in the areas of settlements of Novopil, Prechystivka, Vuhledar, Pavlivka, Mykilske, Zaliznychne, Zeleny Hai, Dorozhnyanka and Novoukrayinka.
More than fifty settlements along the contact line were shelled in the South Buh direction. In particular, Arkhanhelsk, Belousov, Sukhyi Stavok, Shyroke, Bezymene, Kvitneve, Ivanivka, Zorya, Olhyne, Lymany, Blahodatne, Pravdyne, Myrne and Oleksandrivka.
The occupation leadership of the temporarily occupied territories forces local residents to obtain citizenship and passports of the russian federation. For example, in the city of Mariupol, teachers of educational institutions are threatened with dismissal if they refuse to exchange their Ukrainian passport for a russian one, while other residents are allowed not to hand over their Ukrainian passport upon receiving a russian one. In the settlement of Tokarivka, Kherson oblast, the occupiers warned that if they do not receive passports of the russian federation by October 1, the residents will be subject to eviction and deportation outside the occupied territories.
In Kherson, the occupiers evicted the residents of several hostels, for the further settlement of servicemen of the russian occupying forces, who arrived to reinforce units in this direction.
According to detailed information, during the last few days enemy losses have been confirmed in certain directions, namely:
in the village of Bakhmutivka, Luhansk oblast, as a result of an attack on the enemy’s concentration area, more than fifty servicemen were killed, and seventeen units of enemy equipment were destroyed;
in the settlement of Tokmak, Zaporizhzhya oblast, up to fifty enemy servicemen were injured, and ten units of weapons and military equipment were destroyed;
in the Hulyaipole district of the Zaporizhia oblast, up to forty enemy servicemen were injured;
in the city of Melitopol, Zaporizhzhia oblast, the control post, the S-300 anti-aircraft missile system was destroyed and more than fifty occupants were injured.
Over the past day, units of the Defense Forces repelled enemy attacks in the areas of Zaitseve, Mayorsk, Vesela Dolyna, Bakhmutske, Odradivka, Kurdyumivka, New York, Pervomaiske and Bezimenne settlements.
To support the actions of the land groups, the Air Force of the Defense Forces carried out 29 strikes during the day. The defeat of six strongholds, twenty areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment, as well as three anti-aircraft missile systems of the enemy was confirmed. In addition, our air defense units shot down seven UAVs, in particular, five of Iranian production, one Mi-8 helicopter and a Su-25 attack aircraft.
Over the past day, missile forces and artillery hit five command posts, fifteen areas of concentration of manpower, weapons and military equipment, six warehouses with ammunition and fuel and oil, one anti-aircraft missile complex and eight other important enemy facilities.
