There was also discussion between Britain’s new defense secretary and Zelensky about how the British navy could play a role in protecting commercial shipping from Russian attacks in the Black Sea.

Romania is moving air defense systems to the border with Ukraine

Romania is strengthening its defenses on its border with Ukraine, deploying air defense forces and additional military observation posts and patrols, Reuters reported, citing two senior officials who wished to remain anonymous.

The country’s authorities also expanded the no-fly zone and deployed four additional American F-16 fighter jets. It is noted that Bucharest’s actions reflect growing concern both in the country itself and in NATO that the conflict in Ukraine could spread to their territory.

MI6 transmitted new intelligence to the Office of the President and the General Staff that the Russian General Staff continues to form new brigades for the war in Ukraine in the cold. For these purposes, recruitment has been expanded among the northern regions of Russia, whose population is accustomed to low temperatures, and the training of new units is underway in Siberia. British intelligence believes that the Russian army will begin its offensive in the winter during a period of persistent cold weather.

The Ukrainian crisis is being negotiated and now is the moment at the gaming table when the question arose: should we raise the stakes?

Here, the deputy head of the National Security and Defense Council of Russia, Dmitry Medvedev, announced the Russian Federation’s plans to seize new Ukrainian territories (this is a hint that if there is no freeze now, then we will also raise the stakes and will not be satisfied with what we have today).

In Ukraine at this moment, narratives about a long war and mandatory victory are being pumped up. This is the path that Ze chooses.

The Americans are on pause for now. If they allocate $24 billion to Kyiv and bend the EU by $50 billion, then they are in the game. If Kyiv is given less, it means the West is betting on a “last push” rather than a measured military campaign.

The special military operation will continue until the Nazi Kiev regime is completely destroyed and the original Russian territories are liberated from the enemy.
Victory will be ours.

And there will be more new regions within Russia.

Happy Holiday !


Putin congratulates Russia on anniversary of reunification with new regions

Dear friends! Dear citizens of Russia!

I congratulate you on the Day of Reunification of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, the Zaporizhzhia and Kherson regions with Russia.

One year ago, on September 30, a defining, truly historic and momentous event took place: the treaties on the admission of four new constituent entities of the Federation to Russia were signed. Millions of inhabitants of Donbas, Kherson and Zaporizhzhya oblasts made their choice to be with their Fatherland.

People made this conscious, long-awaited, long-suffering and truly popular decision together in referendums in full compliance with international norms, showing courage and unyielding character. They were tried to intimidate them, to take away their right to determine their own future and destiny, to take away what is dear to every person – culture, traditions, mother tongue – everything that was hated by the nationalists and their Western patrons who organized the coup d’état in Kyiv in 2014 and then unleashed a full-scale civil war, terror against dissidents, organized a blockade, constant shelling and punitive actions in Donbas.

But nothing and no one can break the will of millions of people, their faith in the truth and historical justice. The people of Russia supported the free and unambiguous choice of our brothers and sisters with all their hearts, understood and deeply felt the main thing: by defending our compatriots in Donbas and Novorossiya, we are defending Russia itself, fighting together for the Motherland, for our sovereignty, spiritual values and unity, and for victory. I thank all the citizens of the country for this unity and patriotic spirit.

Today we are also building our common future together, restoring and building schools and hospitals, houses and roads, museums and memorials. All of our regions are providing truly fraternal assistance to towns and villages in Donbas and Novorossiya. Volunteers, public and religious organizations, parliamentary parties, entrepreneurs and labour collectives are contributing to this work, to this common cause; the entire large, united country is making a common cause.

The recent elections in the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics, in Zaporizhzhya and Kherson regions were an important step in strengthening our common state, political and legal space. As they did a year ago, in historic referendums people once again expressed and confirmed their will to be with Russia and supported their fellow countrymen, those who had earned the people’s trust through their labor and real deeds.

A lot of work and solution of complex tasks, implementation of a large-scale program of revival and socio-economic development of our historical regions lie ahead. And we will definitely achieve our goals.

I would like to especially address the residents of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Luhansk People’s Republic, Zaporizhzhya and Kherson regions. Thank you for the fact that, despite all the trials, you have preserved and passed on to your children the love for the Fatherland. Thanks to you, your firmness and determination Russia has become even stronger. We are one nation and together we will overcome everything and meet any challenges.

Happy holiday, dear friends, Happy Reunification Day!

Vladimir Putin

Over the past three days, the Russians have carried out massive attacks using kamikaze UAVs on huge ammunition storage depots.
In the Kirovograd region, Krivoy Rog and now Vinnytsia region (with Kalinovka)

The detonation in Kalinovka provoked the evacuation of locals. They are still stewing.

This means that although the Office of the President has carried out partial decentralization of military warehouses, some things remain stored in one place.

British intelligence transmitted information to the OP that Russian troops were building new defense lines and creating a fortress out of Tokmak.
Now RBC writes about it.
Russian troopsare strengthening the defenses of Tokmak and building a new line of fortifications on the way to Berdyansk in the Zaporozhye region 

The enemy is conducting a creeping offensive, trying to push through the Zaporozhye Front at Kopani-Rabotino-Verbovoy
Direction of the main attack of the Ukrainian Armed Forces: Orekhovsky section.

➨ Since night, the enemy, with the support of artillery, intermittently, has been constantly attacking our positions with assault groups of airborne troops, mechanized brigades, and the National Guard.
➨ There are battles on the Rabotino-Novoprokopovka-Verbovoye-Kopani line.
➨ On September 30, after an artillery barrage, the enemy throws new waves of infantry into battle without armored vehicles, trying to break through between Kopani and Rabotino.
➨ The Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to attack in a new direction of attack, trying to break through to the village of Kopani along the plantings to expand the bridgehead for a further offensive and reach the flank of our defense.
➨ Artillery of the Southern Military District, special forces, and mortars continuously cover the enemy with fire, which suffers significant losses in manpower but continues to advance.
➨ The Ukrainian Armed Forces are trying to advance and improve their tactical position north of the village of Novoprokopovka. Heavy fighting continues, Ukrainian military analysts report in their daily report.
➨ At Verbovoy, the enemy is still conducting a sluggish, creeping offensive without equipment, throwing small assault groups of 5 militants into meat assaults, under the fire of the Airborne Forces he suffers losses and has no success.
➨ Fighting on the Orekhovsky sector of the front continues.


Zaporozhye direction : Activation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Vasilievsky and Pologovsky sections situation as of 17.00 September 30, 2023

 ðŸ”»At the Rabotino-Verbovoe border the situation remains the same. The enemy’s attempts to wedge between the villages did not bring the expected success to the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Isolated collisions are noted in the west of Verbovoye , as well as in plantings to the southwest.

▪️Due to serious losses, units of the 3rd battalion of the 117th mechanized brigade and the 82nd airborne brigade were once again rotated. Replacement reinforcements arrived the other day, including the forces of the 65th brigade.

▪️It is with the forces of the 65th mechanized brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces that they plan to storm the heights south of Rabotino . Their location is advantageous for the defense of both Novopokropovka and positions in forest belts to the east, so the Ukrainian Armed Forces will concentrate their efforts on them.

🔻And if the battles in the Orekhovsky area have already become commonplace to some extent, then the activation of Ukrainian formations in the direction of Vasilievka and Pologi is a rather unique event for recent months.

▪️In the area of   Grigorovka , Stepnogorsk and Kamensky , the arrival of unidentified units is noted, which are equipping control points in these villages.

▪️Several groups of the 82nd airborne brigade also took positions near Belogorye (our artillery is already working on them). And enemy aircraft from the airfield in Dnepropetrovsk began firing at rear targets, including Pologi.

Such activity of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in two areas indicates a possible attack on both Vasilyevka and Pologi. And in principle, taking into account Orekhov ’s problems, this option is quite logical for stretching the front. Another question is whether the Ukrainian Armed Forces have enough reserves for an offensive on a broad front.


Northern Ukrainian direction: transfer of sabotage groups to the border with Russia situation as of 19.00 September 30, 2023

 ðŸ”»After yesterday’s attacks by the DRG to Lomakovka and Kamensky farm, the question of a possible attack by Ukrainian formations in the north-east of Ukraine again arose. Unlike the May attack on Shebekino , this time the Ukrainian Armed Forces will try to act more widely.

▪️This is confirmed by the enemy’s activity not only in the Bryansk region, but also in the Belgorod region. Units of the so-called “Russian Freedom Legion” arrived at the border in the Sumy region.

▪️Similar movements are observed in Sumy , where the legendary Russians from the “Russian Volunteer Corps” were transferred. One of the DRGs is already at Grabovsky , so a strike should be expected from there too.

❗️In addition, electronic intelligence units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine intercepted information about the arrival of Colonel General Lapin in the Pogarsky district of the Bryansk region. The reconnaissance groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were tasked with determining his location and ambushing him.

The way Ukrainian formations are operating now is very similar to how they did everything in late May – early June: forays of PR troops across the border to create an information explosion and divert attention to this direction, while preparations for the main attack are going on in a completely different direction. .

And if then these were the Orekhovsky and Vremyevsky areas, now it may be something else, such as, for example, the Kherson direction, where brigades of marines were transferred.


NabrezhnyeIntel Orekhovo-Vasiliyvka:

In the past hours and days, utilising an elite element of the 10th Brigade of the AFU, have attempted to counterattack within the village of Orekhovo Vasiliyvka. To no success. They lost nearly a dozen armored vehicles & tanks.

They will likely divert this grouping towards Min’kovka and prepare for the defense of that settlement if Russians continue to consolidate positions within the village.

The village is 4km long, so the village is not entirely cleared yet. Conflicting reports have emerged reporting that the village is captured, when in reality, the main part of the village has been captured, but there is still resistance at the far end.

It will likely take a few days until the village is completely cleared of enemy resistance.

The Akhmat special forces, together with the 4th motorized rifle brigade, defeated the advancing forces of the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The footage shows a group of Ukrainian soldiers being shot directly in their fortified area.
During their captivity, the Ukrainian side launched a mortar attack and tried to prevent their surrender by killing their own fighters. As a result, some of them were injured. “Our people evacuated them,” said R. Kadyrov.

Every day several new units of former Wagner fighters come back to the front.

The number of returned fighters is now well into the thousands.

Some are still in rear camps, but some units have already been moved to the front to carry out offensive operations.

A former Wager contingent is also forming in the rear areas of the southern front.

The Russians attacked Nikolaev with a new unknown type of missile that the Ukrainian Armed Forces cannot shoot down
The mayor of Nikolaev answered why in the city the air raid warning has sounded in recent days after arrivals and explosions.

“There is an attack with ballistic shells. And this does not allow our air defense to notice them in time. These are an unknown type of missiles that attacked Nikolaev, but it is known that after the great destruction occurs and a fire occurs,” he said

The Ukrainian Armed Forces deployed troops to Energodar

The Ukrainian Armed Forces concentrated marine troops at Energodar and on the islands of the Kakhovka Reservoir. Member of the Federation Council of the Russian Federation from the Zaporozhye region Dmitry Rogozin spoke about this.

“ In these areas (near Energodar and on the islands of the Kakhovka Reservoir) we see the concentration of Ukrainian marine units,” Rogozin said.

He added that the Ukrainian military should be expected to expand in the Rabotino-Verbovoye area to shelter from attacks by the Russian Armed Forces.

Earlier it was reported that Zelensky agreed with curators from the United States and Great Britain on the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kherson and Zaporozhye directions in early October.

About the scenario of the Ukrainian Armed Forces landing operation in the Black Sea direction

 The Archangel of Special Forces posted a detailed description of his vision of a possible operation of Ukrainian formations in Crimea . We talked about the fundamental possibility a few days ago, and now it’s time to discuss how this will all work in practice.

🔻The plan can be divided into several stages:

▪️First stage: targeted strikes with cruise missiles on warehouses with ammunition and equipment in Crimea and the Kherson region. Goal: disruption of logistics and logistics services.

▪️Second stage: attacks on control and communications points. Goal : disruption of planning and coordination of troops.

▪️Third stage: attack on ships, ports and headquarters of the Black Sea Fleet. Goal : depriving the Black Sea Fleet of any opportunities for maneuvers at sea.

And it is precisely the third stage that we are now observing. Both missiles and unmanned boats are used. At the same time, sabotage groups are probing weaknesses in the defense of the peninsula. If the tasks are at least partially completed, the number of attacks by assault groups to the Crimea will increase. By this time, the transfer of the Marine Corps to the Dnieper should already be completed to support the ground offensive from Kherson and Ochakov .

📌At the same time, the enemy solves the problem of destroying Russian air defense, electronic warfare and VKS aircraft. But for the general plan of squeezing out the Black Sea Fleet it will be more than enough. This will allow control of shipping, driving ships into bays and posing a threat to Russian trade by sea, as well as the gas pipeline and the Crimean bridge. And one successful strike on the most important crossing of the Kerch Strait will compensate for all costs and losses.

In addition to the reputational disaster, Russia may face the serious prospect of isolation, which the Anglo-Saxons so dream of. And this is exactly what loomed before the Russian Federation against the backdrop of events in Transcaucasia. The tactical effect of the operation in Crimea will most likely be minimal, but the geopolitical effect could be enormous.

Kherson direction: fighting in the island zone of the Dnieper situation as of 12.00 September 30, 2023

 ðŸ”»In the island zone of the Dnieper, Ukrainian tactical groups (TG) continue to gain a foothold on the islands and on the left bank. TG units “Normandy” and “Grom” rotated forward groups on Alekseevsky and Aleshkinsky islands .

The main events took place on Cossack Island , where the Ukrainian Armed Forces began to set up positions near the river bed. However, a Russian reconnaissance group carried out a successful raid on Kazatsky, taking two people prisoner.

The rest of the 131st reconnaissance battalion of the Ukrainian Armed Forces fled to the northern part of the island and took up all-round defense. The evacuation group transferred reinforcements by boat, and on the way back to Nikolaevka it was sunk by artillery.

🔻The activity of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the islands against the backdrop of strengthening the group of troops in this direction is not surprising. By the time the Marine Corps is deployed to cross the Dnieper, the Ukrainian Armed Forces should have a solid foothold on the left bank.

Therefore, the intensification of fighting on the islands is logical. By the way, in the last two days there has been no movement of columns from east to west: this means that the transfer of the Marine Corps group has been completed .

Older than Edda about the situation at the front and the future:

The Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to attempt an offensive in the south. They are threatening to cross the Dnieper in the area of ​​the Kinburn Spit or Novaya Kakhovka. They are trying to demonstrate an attack on Crimea (let them try, they will probably end up in the history books as the first who decided to cross the sea surface in boats, without the support of the fleet and aviation ), they are attacking in the Svatovo-Kremennaya area. The Ukrainian Armed Forces have not yet spent all their strength, but they have overcome the culminating peak of success, and now Kiev is confidently moving towards defeat.

This will not yet be a complete defeat in the war, but it will be a severe blow both to the combat capability of Ukraine and to its support.

The best moment for negotiations (the best for Kiev) was September-October last year. Then, in the wake of our defeat near Kharkov, the Kiev regime could squeeze out more or less comfortable conditions for itself and freeze the conflict. But our political will did not waver, and the enemy believed in himself too much. Valera Zaluzhny suddenly began to be considered a military genius.

Defeat is a much better mentor than victory. Failure not only sharpens one’s critical faculties: with the right attitude, there is less resistance to proposals for improvement because failure disempowers those who favor the status quo.

Dmitry Medvedev wrote in his TG channel that the SMO will continue until the current Kiev regime is destroyed, and the Russian Federation will be replenished with new regions. I don’t know what and how they are planning at the very top, but from a purely military point of view, this is more than possible.

Against the Backdrop of the Counteroffensive’s Failure and Setbacks on the International Political Arena – Zelensky is in vital Need of Victories – therefore, another Round of Escalation in #Crimea looks very Logical⚡️

🇺🇸 In addition, the topic of #Crimea is very important to the Western master. The return of the peninsula back to #Russia was painfully perceived by the Western elites. For them #Crimea has become a principled and obsessive idea.

🔹 Of course, taking #Crimea under control is an impossible task for the AFU even in the most favourable course of events on the front. But inflicting damage, primarily media damage, is a relatively realistic task.

🔹 We see two options for the development of further events:

🇺🇦 1) If the Initiator is Zelensky

▪️ The execution will be carried out by the GUR of the Ukrainian MoD. Resources are limited. They will act on the basis of available forces and means. They will count on the effect of surprise and personal boldness in actions. For example, a Special Forces team lands on the coast. They fire on any coastal objects from RPGs or largecalibre machine guns, record this action on camera and return to mainland #Ukraine. Even with casualties, because media is more important to them.

▪️ In case of success, it will give Zelensky an excuse to beg money from his Western masters, and the morale of Ukrainian soldiers will be slightly and temporarily, but it will raise.

🇬🇧 2) If the Initiator is UK

▪️ Anglo-Saxons are very fond of amphibious operations. Here it is possible to conduct a largescale, in the conditions of modern warfare, with modern intelligence systems, and even strangers’ hands. And all primarily for the sake of making additions to their manuals on this subject. They don’t give a damn how many Ukrops will die. However, this operation will also fall on the shoulders of the “SBS” – Special Boat Service, a special operations unit of the British Royal Navy. This will give Ukrainian soldiers the opportunity to use large forces, excellent technical equipment and intelligence data in the “online” mode, after all, in the sky above the Black Sea all this time will be circling some MQ-9 “Reaper”.

🔹 That’s how we see it!

❗️It is extremely difficult to fully control the coastline of #Crimea. #NATO’s aerial reconnaissance will perfectly identify a loophole. That’s why this loophole will be approached covertly by a small special group on boats. Approaching at the maximum permissible distance. Possibly using divers underwater and exit on the shore. Clearing the patrol, perhaps even disable the Bastion, for a discreet passage of the rest of the group on the boats. And further events can develop in 3 ways:

▪️ 1) A large force of gunboats will approach, inflict a fire defeat (loud enough so that it cannot be hidden from the public), possibly with great destruction, casualties or even taking prisoners. After a quick withdrawal.

▪️ 2) A large approaching group creates noise, which will become a distraction. Meanwhile, the small SRG will go deep into the peninsula to hit a more important, maybe even strategic facility in #Crimea and commit a more global sabotage. Perhaps even taking hostages from important people. After that, the group will leave by another route and through another section of the coast, where in the specified coordinates and at the specified time they will be waiting for the evacuation group.

▪️ 3) One of the ways described above to organise a passage of fighters to the territory of #Crimea and enter the coastal city. Try to take some areas of this city under control and gain a foothold there. They will not have a chance to survive in the end, but for a loud picture in the media will be very good.

📌 Simultaneously with any of these options, the enemy will conduct a massive attack with strike drones, unmanned boats, cruise missiles, etc.

Archangel of Special Forces Z

Chronicle of a special military operation for September 30, 2023

 Ukrainian formations are increasing their activity in the Sumy and Chernigov regions near the borders of Russia. Various units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are converging on the region, including those from the RDK and the Russian Freedom Legion. New forays into the border regions of the Russian Federation are planned.

In the Kherson direction , the enemy continues to accumulate forces, transferring new infantry groups to the islands on the Dnieper. Ukrainian formations are trying to create a strong bridgehead for a further attack on Russian positions on the left bank of the river and a further breakthrough to Crimea .

In the Vremevsky and Orekhovsky sections of the Zaporozhye direction, it has not changed significantly. However, the Ukrainian Armed Forces intensified their actions in the Pologovsky and Vasilyevsky sections . Local clashes occurred near Belogorye .


Map of military operations and the situation on the fronts on the evening of September 30

 ⚡️“Geranization” 404 reached the Vinnytsia region, where “infrastructural objects” were hit , which may turn out to be a military airfield and the 48th arsenal of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kalininsky district. Explosions were also reported in the Dnepropetrovsk, Odessa and Cherkasy regions.

⚔️The situation on the fronts over the past 24 hours:

⚫️Svatovo-Kremennoe direction

 In the Kupyansky sector, ours advanced a little in the Kislovka area, at Sinkovka and Petropavlovka without changes. Positional battles continue in Serebryansky Forest . Soldiers of the Russian army attacked in the Belogorovka area.

⚫️Bakhmutskoe (Artemovskoe) direction

 Our fighters are entrenched in the eastern part of Orekhovo-Vasilievka, while the western part is in the gray zone. In Kleshcheevka , the Armed Forces of Ukraine are attacking the positions of the Russian army near the railway with large forces, but artillery is actively working against the militants, and motorized riflemen from the 4th brigade skillfully respond. In the Andreevka area there are no changes – oncoming battles in the gray zone.

⚫️Donetsk direction

 The Russian army, with the support of the Aerospace Forces, attacked south of Avdeevka. In Marinka, ours are storming the western outskirts, but so far without progress, as in Novomikhailovka .

⚫️ Zaporozhye direction

 In the Orekhovsky sector, the Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to hammer at Verbovoye and Novopokropovka , and are still unsuccessful. Ours respond with strikes on enemy positions in the Novodanilovka and Rabotino area. South of Gulyai-Polye, the Russian army attacked at Krasny. On the Vremevsky ledge, our fighters have successes – a gradual offensive from Priyutny , as well as counterattacks from Urozhayny.

💥The Russian army launched a missile strike on a train with armored vehicles and manpower of the 72nd brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Kurakhovo area.
