Ukraine attacks the territory of Russia

Date: October 2, 2022 Time: 19:21:12

Two Russian cities, Timonovo and Soloti, located close to each other and about 25 kilometers from the border with Ukraine, had to be evacuated when a powder keg caught fire on Thursday evening, no casualties were reported. This is the same incident that occurred Tuesday in Mayskoye in Crimea, forcing about 2,000 people to leave temporarily as artillery shells stored in an arsenal flew onto a road, according to video footage. Timonovo and Soloti, each with fewer than a thousand people, are part of the Belgorod region, from where Russian troops have been shelling the Ukrainian city of Kharkiv, as happened yesterday when five rockets hit an industrial zone and killed at least one woman.

The Kiev government has refrained from commenting, much less taking responsibility for these actions, but military sources cited by Western media have no doubt that Ukrainian forces are moving the war into another phase. Just yesterday, explosions were again observed in Crimea near the Kerch bridge connecting the peninsula with Russia, and the Belbek air base, which is located at the Sevastopol airport itself. Russia said its anti-aircraft forces shot down a drone in Kerch and that something similar happened near the Belbek base on Thursday night. However, a video circulated on social media shows a dense column of smoke from the fire and the trajectory of anti-aircraft tracer bullets against the background of the crackling of ammunition.

All this happens when sources cited by the British press believe that half of the Russian aviation, which is part of the Black Sea Fleet, has been liquidated. Nine aircraft were destroyed on August 9 at the Novofedorovka base in Saki, and last Tuesday there were rumors that the Gvardeyskoye base had also been attacked at the same time as the Maiskoye gunpowder depot. This degradation of Russian power on the peninsula, which is a large military base, reached its climax much earlier, however, with the sinking of the fleet flagship Moskva on April 14 and the death of its deputy on March 20. commander at the siege of Mariupol. It is not surprising, therefore, that on Wednesday there was a change at the head of the fleet. The new head, Vice Admiral Viktor Sokolov, said yesterday, citing the TASS agency, that this year he will receive 12 new ships, aircraft and ground equipment.

The Pentagon also made its announcement yesterday: a $775 million package for Ukraine with additional Himars rocket launchers (the weapon that proves most useful to Ukrainians), howitzers, Javelin anti-tank systems and reconnaissance drones. At the same time, Pentagon officials said Russia was making little progress in Ukraine. True, in recent weeks no initiative has been observed, while the Ukrainians are attacking their rear, preparing for what they declare as a counter-offensive in the south of the country.

But the most important crisis scenario remains at the Zaporozhye NPP. After a meeting on Thursday in Lvov between Ukrainian President Zelensky, Turkish, Erdogan and UN Secretary General António Guterres, where everyone seemed to agree that Russia should unconditionally leave the plant, which Moscow deemed “unacceptable”, Emmanuel Macron called Vladimir yesterday Putin. The Kremlin noted that this was their first conversation since May 28, and thus the French president appeared to be ahead of Erdogan, who said he would speak with the Russians.

Putin agrees to a visit to the plant by experts from the International Atomic Energy Agency, which indicates that the demand for withdrawal is more of a rhetorical nature. In fact, according to Yeliseisky, as well as Moscow through the Russian governor of Zaporozhye, Putin also agreed that the technicians arrive at the plant, occupied by the Russian army since May, through Ukrainian territory (crossing the Dnieper, presumably), and not through Crimea, as offered by Moscow.

Russia will maneuver with Kazakhstan

At a meeting with Kazakh President Kassym-Jomart Tokayev, Russian President Vladimir Putin announced that the two countries would hold joint military exercises, but did not specify when. The new Kazakh government remained cautious in the face of the war in Ukraine and did not recognize the separatist republics.
