• Das britische Intel Update:
On 08 October 2022, the Russian Ministry of Defence (MOD) announced that General Sergei Surovikin had been appointed as overall commander of its Joint Group of Forces conducting the ‘special military operation’ in Ukraine.
Surovikin has previously commanded the Russian Aerospace Forces and, more recently, the Southern Grouping of Forces on operations in Ukraine.
For much of its operation, Russia has likely lacked a single empowered field commander.
General Alexandr Dvornikov likely held the role for a period between April and August 2022, but it is unclear whether he was able to effectively exercise control over the often disparate and competing groupings of forces.
Surovikin’ s appointment likely reflects an effort by the Russian national security community to improve the delivery of the operation.
However, he will likely have to contest with an increasingly factional Russian MOD which is poorly resourced to achieve the political objectives it has been set in Ukraine.
Operational update regarding the russian invasion as of 06:00, on October 11, 2022
The two hundred-thirtieth (230) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.
Without success, the enemy launches missile strikes and actively uses attack UAVs to damage critical infrastructure and densely populated cities of our country. The enemy is not able to stop the successful counteroffensive of the Defence Forces in the Kharkiv and Kherson directions, so it is trying to intimidate and sow panic among the population of Ukraine.
Mobilization and transfer of reserves by the enemy also do not provide an opportunity to overcome the resistance of the defenders of our country.
During the previous day, the occupiers launched more than 61 rocket and 32 air strikes, carried out about 92 MLRS attacks.
73 air targets were destroyed by air defense units in various directions, including 46 cruise missiles and 27 unmanned aerial vehicles.
As a result of a massive missile attack, the infrastructure of more than 30 settlements was damaged in the past day. These are, in particular, Kyiv, Lviv, Rivne, Zhytomyr, Ternopil, Khmelnytskyi, Ivano-Frankivsk, Vinnytsia, Pryluky, Nizhyn, Konotop, Kharkiv, Kremenchuk, Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih, Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv, Odesa. Civilian citizens of Ukraine were killed and wounded.
The threat of the enemy launching missile strikes on critical infrastructure and peaceful neighbourhoods remains.
Also, the occupiers do not stop trying to hold the temporarily captured territories, shell the positions of our troops, focus their efforts on trying to disrupt the counter-offensive actions of the units of the Defence Forces, and try to conduct offensive actions in separate directions.
The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly. According to available information, the leadership of the republic of belarus continues to support the russian federation in the war against Ukraine, giving the russian federation the opportunity to use the airspace and airfield network to carry out airstrikes on the territory of Ukraine. In the indicated areas, units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine are monitoring the situation, there are no signs of the formation of offensive groups on the territory of the rerpublic of belarus and the movement of troops, as of 06:00 on October 11 of the current year.
The enemy fired in other directions:

The enemy did not carry out offensive operations in the Avdiivka, Novopavlivka, and Zaporizhzhia directions. Avdiivka, Pervomaiske, Vodyane, Krasnohorivka, Maryinka, Novomykhailivka, Vuhledar, Nevelske, Zaliznychne, Bilohirya, Vremivka, Zelene Pole, Novosilka, Shcherbaki, Novopil, Novomykolaivka, Hulyaipilske, Doronka, Temyrivka and Chervonewere shelled by tanks, mortars, barrel and jet artillery.

Over the past day, units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine repelled the attacks of the occupiers in the areas of the settlements of Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Mayorsk, Soledar and Pervomaiske.
The enemy continues to suffer losses. So, on October 9 of this year, in the area of Bilozerka, Kherson oblast, our soldiers destroyed about 15 units of enemy military equipment. On October 10, in the area of Beryslav settlement, a hangar with military equipment of the enemy was hit, the losses are being clarified.
The aggressors recommend to teachers of universities in Kherson who cooperate with the occupation authorities to move to the territory of Crimea. It is also known that in the event of a „complication“ of the situation in the temporarily occupied territory of the Ukrainian Crimea, the occupying authorities have plans to evacuate the families of representatives of the leadership of the security forces serving in the said territory.
In the city of Starobilsk, Luhansk oblast, the occupiers are searching for Ukrainian patriots, detaining family members and friends of military personnel, as well as law enforcement officers.
In addition, according to available information, in the Luhansk oblast, under the guise of searching for Ukrainian saboteurs, the invaders are looking for their deserters.
Aviation of the Defence Forces carried out 6 strikes during the past 24 hours. It has been confirmed that 4 places of concentration of weapons and military equipment, as well as 2 enemy anti-aircraft missile systems, have been destroyed. In addition, air defence units destroyed an enemy Su-25 aircraft.
