Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 29. November 2022:
• Auf der Liste der deutschen Militärhilfe für die Ukraine stehen seit einer knappen Woche 14 ferngesteuerte Kettenfahrzeuge für Unterstützungsaufgaben. Dank einer Mitteilung der Herstellerfirma Milrem Robotics ist jetzt klar, was damit gemeint ist – das Gerät, ein unbemanntes Bodenfahrzeug, kommt aus Estland:
The leading European robotics and autonomous systems developer, Milrem Robotics, and the German defence company Krauss-Maffei Wegmann (KMW) have signed a contract to deliver 14 THeMIS unmanned ground vehicles (UGV) to Ukraine.
Of the 14 vehicles, seven will be configured for casualty evacuation (CASEVAC) and are scheduled to be delivered by the end of this year. The other seven, to be delivered in the second quarter of 2023, will be configured for route clearance with payloads from the French defence manufacturer CNIM Systèmes Industriels.
The effort is being funded by the German Ministry of Defence.
• Vor Beginn des Außenministertreffens der NATO in Bukarest sagte deren Generalsekretär Jens Stoltenberg der Ukraine weitere Hilfe der Allianz und ihrer Mitgliedsstaaten zu, sowohl bei der Hilfe zur Bewältigung der zerstörten Infrastruktur als auch weitere Luftverteidigung:
NATO Allies and NATO has already delivered critical supplies to Ukraine to help them mitigate the consequences of the brutal attacks against critical infrastructure, including gas and power infrastructure. We have delivered generators, we have delivered spare parts and Allies are in different ways helping to rebuild the destroyed infrastructure. And we need to realize that there are enormous effects of the attacks. The Ukrainians are able to shoot down many of the incoming missiles and drones, but not all of them. And therefore, these attacks have caused significant damage. I think we all have seen these pictures taken from satellites, where you see Europe in light, and then you see Ukraine dark, and that reflects the enormous consequences. So there’s a huge task to rebuild all of this. One of the important reasons why this meeting today is so important and timely, is that this provides us with the platform to mobilize further support to step up even more, and also for Minister Kuleba to meet all his colleagues in NATO and then to address those urgent needs. And I’m confident that Minister Kuleba will raise also the need for stepping up further when it comes to rebuilding their power infrastructure.
Unterdessen schienen am (heutigen) Montag die befürchteten erneuten russischen Luftangriffe in großem Stil, unter anderem auf Kiew, auszubleiben.
• Der Generalsekretär der Internationalen Atomenergieagentur, Rafael Mariano Grossi, kündigte eine stärkere Präsenz der UN-Organisation in ukrainischen Atomkraftwerken an. Die Kraftwerke waren in den vergangenen Wochen als Folge von Luftangriffen immer wieder vom Stromnetz getrennt worden.

• Das britische Intel Update:
Over the last three months, Russian forces in Ukraine have likely largely stopped deploying as Battalion Tactical Groups (BTGs).
The BTG concept has played a major part in Russian military doctrine for the last ten years, and saw battalions integrated with a full range of supporting sub-units, including armour, reconnaissance and (in a departure from usual Western practice) artillery.
Several intrinsic weaknesses of the BTG concept have been exposed in the high intensity, large-scale combat of the Ukraine war so far. BTGs’ relatively small allocation of combat infantry has often proved insufficient.
Decentralised distribution of artillery has not allowed Russia to fully leverage its advantage in numbers of guns; and few BTG commanders have been empowered to flexibly exploit opportunities in the way the BTG model was designed to promote.
