Nachgetragen fürs Archiv: Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 22. November 2022:
• Die Energieversorgung bleibt angesichts der gezielten russischen Luftangriffe auf diese Infrastruktur das aktuell größte Problem der Ukraine. Präsident Wolodymyr Selenskyj kündigte in seiner regelmäßigen Videoansprache am Dienstagabend an, es seien aktuell 4.000 Anlaufpunkte mit Heizung, Strom und nicht zuletzt Internetzugang für Betroffene im ganzen Land in Vorbereitung, weitere seien geplant:
As for the energy frontline. Energy and utility workers in many regions continue restoration of the network. We are also preparing responses to possible new terrorist attacks against our energy system.
As of this evening, only stabilizing shutdown schedules are used in 16 regions and in Kyiv. But we must understand that in case of consumption spikes, emergency shutdowns are also possible.
We are also rolling out our new „Points of Invincibility“ project to support people across the country. As of this day, more than 4,000 such points have already been prepared. More are planned.
If massive Russian strikes take place again and if there is an understanding that the electricity supply cannot be restored within hours, the work of „Points of Invincibility“ will be activated – all basic services will be there, including electricity, mobile communications and the Internet, heat, water, and a first-aid kit. Absolutely free and 24/7.
Points will necessarily work at all regional and district administrations, as well as at schools, buildings of the State Emergency Service, etc.
A special website, nezlamnist.gov.ua, with a map of such points throughout the country is already available. It is constantly updated.
It’s important to see now where these points are in your city, in your community, and keep an eye on the map for updates in the coming weeks as new points are added.
On the website and in all „Points of Invincibility“ you will be able to find out where the nearest gas station, bank, pharmacy and grocery store are operating.
All of us must be prepared for any scenario, considering what terrorists are fighting against our people and what they are trying to do.
Local authorities are tasked with informing people about the existence of „Points of Invincibility“. It should be very simple: in government buildings, in pharmacies, grocery stores, in post offices, there should be information about where a person can find support in the event of a long-term power outage.
And it is very important that conscientious business is already joining this initiative of ours. Thanks to all the entrepreneurs who decided to support society now and make their business facilities also „Points of Invincibility“ – with generators, Starlinks, water and other stuff.
• Das britische Intel Update:
On 18 November 2022, multiple Russian and Ukrainian media outlets reported that an attack took place at an oil terminal in Novorssiysk port on Russia’s Black Sea coast. A major base of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet (BSF) is close to the oil terminal.
The BSF relocated many of its submarine operations to Novorssiysk after its Sevastopol base in occupied Crimea was struck by Ukraine over the summer. Russian commanders will likely be concerned about threats to the Novorssiysk-based amphibious landing ship flotilla.
These vessels are relatively vulnerable without escorts and have assumed a more important role in supplying Russian forces in Ukraine since the Kerch Bridge was damaged in October.
Full details of this incident are yet to emerge. However, any demonstration of a Ukrainian capability to threaten Novorssiysk would highly likely represent a further strategic challenge for the BSF.
It would also further undermine Russia’s already reduced maritime influence in the Black Sea.
