Im andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine scheinen die Erfolge der ukrainischen Streitkräfte gegen die russischen Linien anzuhalten – das sagt nicht nur (erwartbar) der ukrainische Präsident, sondern auch britische Nachrichtendienste und offensichtlich auch das russische Verteidigungsministerium selbst. Der Sammler am 5. Oktober 2022:
• Die Ukraine nennt mittlerweile offener ihre Erfolge bei den Offensiven gegen die Verteidigungslinien der von Russland besetzten Gebiete. So der ukrainische Präsident Wolodymyr Selenskij in seiner regelmäßigen Videoansprache am (gestrigen) Dienstagabend:
Today we’ve got some good news both from the frontline and from the diplomatic front.
First: the Ukrainian army is carrying out a pretty fast and powerful advance in the south of our country as part of the current defense operation. Dozens of settlements have already been liberated from the Russian sham referendum this week alone. In Kherson region, Kharkiv region, Luhansk region and Donetsk region altogether.
In particular, according to the military reports from the Kherson region: the settlements of Lyubymivka, Khreshchenivka, Zolota Balka, Bilyaivka, Ukrainka, Velyka and Mala Oleksandrivka, and Davydiv Brid were liberated from the occupier and stabilized. And this is far from a complete list…
Our warriors do not stop. And it’s only a matter of time before we oust the occupier from all our land.
Dazu passt ein Detail aus dem Briefing des russischen Verteidigungsministeriums ebenfalls vom Dienstag: Im Text der Lagemeldungen nicht erwähnt, sind auf dem begleitenden Video des Ministeriums Veränderungen im Frontverlauf erkennbar – und, darauf weisen die regelmäßigen Beobachter dieser Lagekarten hin, ein Zurückweichen der russischen Truppen.
• Das britische Intel Update:
Ukraine continues to make progress in offensive operations along both the north-eastern and southern fronts. In the north-east, in Kharkiv Oblast, Ukraine has now consolidated a substantial area of territory east of the Oskil River.
Ukrainian formations have advanced up to 20 km beyond the river into Russia’s defensive zone towards the supply node of the town of Svatove.
It is highly likely that Ukraine can now strike the key Svatove-Kremina road with most of its artillery systems, further straining Russia’s ability to resupply its units in the east.
Politically, Russian leaders will highly likely be concerned that leading Ukrainian units are now approaching the borders of Luhansk Oblast, which Russia claimed to have formally annexed last Friday.
Operational update of General Staff of the UAF regarding the russian invasion as of 06:00, on October 5, 2022
The two hundred-twenty-fourth (224) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.
The enemy is trying to hold the temporarily captured territories, concentrates efforts on attempts to disrupt the active actions of the Defence Forces in certain directions, does not stop conducting offensive actions in the Bakhmut and Avdiyivka directions. The enemy is regrouping units of his troops in separate directions.
The enemy fires at the positions of our troops along the contact line, conducts remote mining of certain areas of the territory and conducts aerial reconnaissance. Strikes civilian infrastructure and civilian homes, violating international humanitarian law, laws and customs of war.
There remains the threat of air and missile strikes on the entire territory of Ukraine. For example, during the past day, the occupiers launched 9 missile and 6 air strikes, carried out more than 56 MLRS attacks.
Objects and civilian population of more than 27 settlements were damaged by enemy strikes. In particular, Kharkiv, Shypuvate, Kramatorsk, Bakhmut, Mayorsk, Hulyaipole, Zaliznychne, Andriyivka, Bilohirka, Voznesensk, Prydniprovske.
The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly.
The enemy fired in other directions:

in the Slobozhansk direction – from tanks, mortars, barrel and jet artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Hraniv, Ohirtseve, Hatyshche, Vovchansk and Bilyi Kolodyaz;
in the Kramatorsk direction – from mortars, barrel and jet artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Bilohorivka, Serebryanka and Spirne.
In the direction of Bakhmut, the enemy shelled the areas of Soledar, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Odradivka, Zaytseve, Opytne, Yakovlivka and Yuryivka.

During the enemy’s abandonment of settlements in the Kherson region, the enemy mines infrastructure facilities and private residences, prohibits any movement of local residents.
According to available information, in the temporarily occupied territory of the Republic of Crimea, in the medical facilities of the city of Yevpatoria, there is a lack of medical equipment for the treatment of wounded occupiers.
The enemy has problems with certain types of support during the so-called „partial mobilization“. Thus, mobilized personnel from the Molkino educational center of the Krasnodar Territory were sent back to Primorsko-Akhtarsk due to the inability to house, clothe and provide food for the specified category of servicemen.
russian occupation authorities are trying to compensate for the loss of personnel at the expense of conscription of the local population of the temporarily occupied and occupied territories of Ukraine. Thus, according to the available information, men from Luhansk, without conducting a medical commission and training, after mobilization are immediately sent to replenish the units that suffered the greatest losses.
In the evening of October 3, 202, the Defense Forces of Ukraine struck the enemy’s pontoon and ferry crossings across the Dnipro River in the Kherson region. The total losses of the enemy are being clarified.
