Nachgetragen fürs Archiv: Zum andauernden russischen Angriffskrieg gegen die Ukraine der Sammler am 1. Januar 2023:
• In der Ukraine begann das neue Jahr so wie das alte geendet hatte: mit Luftangriffen der russischen Streitkräfte in der Nacht zum Neujahrsmorgen. Aus der Meldung des ukrainischen Generalstabs:
In der Nacht vom 31. Dezember 2022 auf den 1. Januar 2023 griffen russische Besatzer die Ukraine mit Kamikaze-Drohnen iranischer Bauart „Shahed-131/136“ an.
Als Ergebnis der Kampfhandlungen zerstörte die Flugabwehr der Luftwaffe in Zusammenarbeit mit der Flugabwehr anderer Komponenten der ukrainischen Verteidigungskräfte 45 Angriffsdrohnen.
Dreizehn im Jahr 2022 und 32 – im Jahr 2023.
Es hat nicht geklappt, den Ukrainern die Feiertage zu verderben!
(Übersetzt mit deepl.com)
Auf diese Angriffe reagierte auch die US-Botschafterin in der ukrainischen Hauptstadt:
Beyond belief. Russia coldly and cowardly attacked Ukraine in the early hours of the new year. But Putin still does not seem to understand that Ukrainians are made of iron. America is absolutely confident Ukraine will prevail in 2023. Slava Ukraini!

• Wie schon am Weihnachtsfeiertag gab es auch am heutigen Neujahrstag kein britisches Intelligence Update.
