Ukraine/Russland/NATO – der Sammler am 26. November 2022

Nachgetragen fürs Archiv: Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 26. November 2022:

• Das britische Intel Update:

Russia is likely removing the nuclear warheads from aging nuclear cruise missiles and firing the unarmed munitions at Ukraine.
Open source imagery shows wreckage of an apparently shot-down AS-15 KENT air launched cruise missile (ALCM), designed in the 1980s exclusively as a nuclear delivery system. The warhead had probably been substituted for ballast.
Although such an inert system will still produce some damage through the missile’s kinetic energy and any unspent fuel, it is unlikely to achieve reliable effects against intended targets.
Russia almost certainly hopes such missiles will function as decoys and divert Ukrainian air defences.
Whatever Russia’s intent, this improvisation highlights the level of depletion in Russia’s stock of long-range missiles.

Operational update regarding the russian invasion on 06:00, on November 26, 2022
The two hundred seventy-sixth (276) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.
The enemy continues armed aggression against our state, does not stop striking civilian objects. Focuses efforts on deterring the actions of units of the Defence Forces. The regrouping of enemy troops with the aim of strengthening the groups in the Lyman, Avdiivka and Novopavlivka directions is underway.
Over the past 24 hours, units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine repelled the attacks of the occupiers in the areas of Yakovlivka, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Opytne, Pervomaiske, Krasnohorivka and Nevelske settlements of the Donetsk oblast.
The enemy launched 11 missile strikes, 7 air strikes and launched more than 50 MLRS attacks. Kupyansk and Chuhuiv of the Kharkiv oblast were hit by rockets; Bilenke in Donetsk oblast and Komyshuvakha and Kushugum in Zaporizhzhia oblast.
In the Volyn, Polissya, and Siverskyi directions, the situation has not changed significantly, and no signs of the formation of enemy offensive groups have been detected.
In the Slobozhanskyi direction, the enemy carried out artillery fire on the areas of Kozacha Lopan, Strilecha, Lypka, Starytsa, Ohirtseve and Dvorichna settlements of the Kharkiv oblast.
On the Kupyansk and Lyman directions, the enemy is conducting an active defense, shelling the areas of the settlements of Kupyansk, Berestove, Kislivka and Tabaivka of the Kharkiv oblast with tanks and barrel artillery; Stelmakhivka, Makiivka and Ploshchanka in the Luhansk oblast and Yampolivka and Torske in the Donetsk oblast.
In the Bakhmut and Avdiivka directions, the occupiers continue to focus their main efforts on conducting offensive actions. Shelling was recorded in the areas of Soledar, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Klishchiivka, Krasnohorivka, Vesele, Avdiivka, Opytne, Vodyane, Nevelske and Maryinka settlements of Donetsk oblast.
The enemy is conducting active defensive operations in the Novopavlivsk and Zaporizhzhia directions. Fired tanks and the entire range of artillery in the areas of the settlements of Vuhledar, Prechystivka, Neskuchne, Vremivka, Novopil, Zelene Pole of the Donetsk oblast and Olhivske, Hulyaipole, Hulyaipilske and Charivne in Zaporizhzhia oblast.
In the Kryvyi Rih and Kherson directions, the enemy is carrying out fortification of positions along the coastline and in the depth of the defence, improving the logistical support of advanced units, and does not stop artillery shelling of the positions of our troops and settlements on the right bank of the Dnipro River. The cities of Ochakiv and Kherson were directly affected by enemy fire.
A large number of losses in enemy units operating in the Luhansk region is noted. In general, the number of civilian hospitals used by the enemy to treat exclusively russian military personnel increased in the temporarily occupied territory of the region. For the civilian population of the region, medical services are becoming less and less accessible. The hospitals of Krasnyi Luch, Anthracite and Lutugine settlements are full of wounded occupiers, and morgues are filled with the bodies of dead invaders.
Enemy losses for November 24 in the temporarily occupied part of the Zaporizhzhia region have been confirmed. In the city of Melitopol, the ammunition depot of the occupiers was destroyed, about 50 people were injured of various degrees of severity. Two warehouses were destroyed in the Vasylivskyi district. Here, up to 130 occupiers were wounded, and 7 units of military equipment of various types were also destroyed. The number of liquidated enemy personnel is being specified.
The issue of logistical support for mobilized russian servicemen remains unresolved. So, in the Kostroma region, through social networks, the population is called to make camouflage nets, carry warm clothes, sleeping bags, sleeping bags and other things that are so necessary for military personnel in the field. At the same time, despite the propaganda measures, there is a certain decline in the material support of the russian invaders from the civilian population.
The russian military-political leadership began to receive reports on the real state of affairs of the conducted mobilization and the implementation of the plan for the autumn draft for military service. It is known that the military commanders of the Kaliningrad region are no longer carrying out plans for the autumn conscription due to the evasion of conscripts.
During the day, the aviation of the Defence Forces made 14 strikes on areas where the enemy’s personnel, weapons and military equipment were concentrated, as well as 4 strikes on the positions of its anti-aircraft missile systems.
During the current day, soldiers of missile forces and artillery hit the control post, 5 areas of concentration of personnel and anti-aircraft defences of the enemy, as well as 2 other important objects of the enemy.
