"The head of Russia's region of Chechnya said Moscow should consider using a low-yield nuclear weaponin Ukraine after its battlefield defeat in Lyman. Ramzan Kadyrov said in a message on Telegram addressing Russia's loss of its stronghold: "In my personal opinion, more drastic measures should be taken, right up to the declaration of martial law in the border areas and the use of low-yield nuclear weapons."

Ah, another morning person. Good morning. Not so good for the Russians, who today topped 60,000 dead troops. (And I think that number is light, since Lyman has probably accounted for more than 500, alone.)

The Director General of the IAEA is going to Ukraine and Russia next week

" The visit is part of ongoing efforts to implement a nuclear safety and security zone around the Zaporizhzhia nuclear power plant as soon as possible ," the IAEA said in a statement.

We will remind, on Friday, September 30, the general director of the ZNPP Igor Murashov was detained by the Russians on the way from the station to Energodar. Currently, there is no information about Igor Murashov's whereabouts and his fate. Law enforcement officers have started a criminal investigation into his abduction. the Russian side informed the IAEA in response to a call to Russia to provide an explanation regarding the capture of the General Director of the National Nuclear Power Plant, Ihor Murashov, that he was "temporarily detained".

Russia has reduced its naval fleet in the Black and Azov Seas

" The ship group of the enemy's fleet, reduced to eight units, is kept in a missile-safe area for itself, but insidiously keeps 24 "Calibres " ready, - reports the Operational Command "South" on Facebook.

Therefore, the threat of a missile strike is relevant and quite probable. Attacks using kamikaze drones are also possible. In addition, the sea can continue to throw broken anchor mines to the coast.

Propaganda considerations ARE a thing in reporting, and I wonder if the people that approve these daily lists might under-report, so as to have a reserve for future bad news (so that eventual totals would be correct).

csb:

Retired accountant/controller here. Dirty little secret of the management accounting profession: a responsible controller, particularly in companies where top management is prone to "Oh, LOOK, Shiny!" moments, will stash "good news" (portions of excess cash) in easily-manipulated accounts (prepaids, liability accruals, and so forth), called "cushions." CPA auditors tend to look askance at cushions, but (in my experience) generally let them slide with "Meh, its a story."

Owner of demolition company: "Oh, LOOK, the company can buy a twenty foot bronze statue of Miley Cyrus on the wrecking ball for our lobby. It will be perfect! Only $2,750,000!" Controller: "Oooooh, sorry, no can do, boss. The month is a bit tight and the cash flow just isn't available right now."

2 thousand mobilized Russians were delivered to the occupied Crimea

In the morning summary of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it is noted that since September 30, the military units based in the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea have been put on full combat readiness, and measures are being taken to disperse the units. It is known about the formation of a motorized rifle division on the territory of the peninsula from those mobilized from the Crimea, the Krasnodar Territory and the Republic of Adygea.

About two thousand mobilized men arrived at the point of permanent deployment of the 810th separate brigade of marines in Sevastopol.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine confirmed that the Ukrainian military entered Liman. At the entrance to the city, they raised the Ukrainian flag, now there is fighting there. This was announced by the spokesman of the Eastern Group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Serhiy Cherevaty, on the air of a single telethon. "Inspiring success" - the Pentagon reacted to Lyman's dismissal

On October 1, the Ukrainian authorities officially announced that units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine raised the state flag over the city of Lyman, Donetsk region. The head of the Pentagon, Lloyd Austin, congratulated the efforts of the Ukrainian soldiers and noted that the return of Lyman will be a double gain for Ukraine due to the fact that the Russians used the settlement and the road near it to transfer manpower and equipment to Donetsk region, Luhansk region and other operational areas.

" Of course, this is a significant success. We are very inspired by what we are seeing now. Without these routes, it will be more difficult for the Russians. They face a kind of dilemma, what to do next ," Austin said.

Australia introduced new sanctions against Russia

" Additional targeted financial sanctions and a travel ban have been imposed against 28 Russian-appointed separatists, ministers and senior officials. Among them are individuals who disregarded international law in order to legitimize Russia's illegal actions in Ukraine by holding a fake referendum, spreading disinformation and intimidation ," Australian Foreign Minister Penny Wong said in a statement.

The Australian minister emphasized that the falsified Russian "referendums" are illegal and do not have any legal effect.

It is also reported that Australia joined the lawsuit against the Russian Federation, which Ukraine filed at the International Criminal Court, and supported Ukraine's accusation against Russia of violating the Genocide Convention.

When you're serious about completing a project, rather than having a means to grift:

Poland has finished building a wall on the border with Belarus

" Today, the Polish border is the most protected in Europe ," Stanislav Zharin, State Secretary of the Prime Minister's Office, Deputy Minister of Special Services Coordinator, wrote on Twitter.

The construction of the border wall cost about 1.6 billion zlotys (about 330 million euros). Construction of the 500-kilometer-long fence began in the fall of 2021 due to a sharp increase in the flow of illegal migrants trying to break into the EU from Belarus.

For me, there are exactly three doppelgängers that I personally see at once. How many are there in fact - you just have to raise the information," said Budanov.

They've been working towards that for a while now. The question is will Ukraine's Western allies then respond to nukes going off nearby. If they thought that they could get away with it, they'd have done it by now.

Lol

I grew up near the border in San Diego.

It's a clean, well built fence, i give the Polish that.

If there's a market to put people or material on the other side it may as well be built of popsicle sticks.

OTOH if it's symbolic, i guess it has value. Not sure if €300M worth, but hey, it's their pocketbook.

Ukraine aid links

A month and a half into the war (day 44), many of us felt helpless and listless at not being able to do more to help, so here is a list of things that we can do.

There are plenty of charities that could use your help, but even if you don't have spare cash lying about, there are still things you can do, so keep reading


You can donate directly to Ukraine if you want to help them make more videos of tanks blowing up. (See 'military aid' below)

There are lots of humanitarian groups working to feed the displaced people and even their pets.  (See 'humanitarian aid')

And even if you're not in a position to give cash, you might be able to find a group that needs some volunteer help or attend a protest.  If you don't have a group in your area specifically helping Ukraine, you can likely still find other worthwhile causes.  And there are groups that have tasks that can be done online or over the phone without even leaving your home. (See 'other notes'). Even just calling politicians to remind them that we need to support Ukrainians.

You can call out dumbasses online who are spreading russian propaganda and otherwise spewing toxic crap.  (Or join groups like NAFO) And by ignoring or blocking the assholes on here who try that shiat. (Make sure to watch for other threads, not just the daily one)

And you can even support capitalism, and buy stuff made in Ukraine or are fundraisers for the war effort.  (See 'buying stuff')

This is in no way a comprehensive list.  This is just groups that Farkers have mentioned in past threads.  If you want a more comprehensive list, see https://supportukrainenow.org . They also have links to specific groups by country that you're coming from for protests, taking in refugees, etc.  You might also find interesting charities at https://standwithukraine.today/ukrainian-charities/ and https://www.reddit.com/r/ukraine/comments/tgc00n/want_to_support_ukraine_heres_a_list_of_charities/

I make no claims about any of these groups.  I've trimmed a few that people have said might be suspect, but I have no personal knowledge of any of them.  If you feel the need to vet them before donating, see GuideStar or Charity Navigator.

If you're currently employed by a large-ish company, they may have a donation matching program.  You can check https://doublethedonation.com/but it's also worth contacting your HR to ask even if they're not listed there.

If you've gained profits from stocks, consider donating the stocks directly, so they get the full value and you don't need to hold some back to pay capital gain taxes.

If you use streaming music services, search for Ukrainian artist playlists, so you'll give them a fraction of a penny and maybe find some new artists to support more directly.  See https://linkpeak.io/l/defendukraine

If you watch cam sites, consider supporting Ukrainians (although some may currently be displaced, others may tag Ukraine to show support because they're from neighboring countries, and some of the most in need of support may not currently have internet access; I don't have any sort of definitive list)

There are also efforts to DDoS Russian websites, but I'm not linking to them to avoid risking the mods removing this whole list.

Also see the official Ukrainian website on ways to support their effort:  https://war.ukraine.ua/support-ukraine/

LOL not so much, but the cats are, and they're HONGRY! in the morning.

Exact same problem here. Oh, and the one also needs to have her butt scratched when I take my wake-up bathroom call. The other one is "Don't touch me! Put the food there!"

Who owns whom, again? It's like dealing with perpetual 2-year-olds, with claws.

Dogs have owners. Cats have staff. As someone put it recently, these three would cut a biatch for a can of tuna

In my opinion, Ramzan Kadyrov needs a polonium enema

Ah, another morning person. Good morning. Not so good for the Russians, who today topped 60,000 dead troops. (And I think that number is light, since Lyman has probably accounted for more than 500, alone.)

Any good independent estimates of Russian losses? I know the Kremlin is straight up lying but obviously Kyiv and western intelligence agencies have their own motivations to exaggerate losses.

He'd probably enjoy that.

fasahd: 2 thousand mobilized Russians were delivered to the occupied Crimea

In the morning summary of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it is noted that since September 30, the military units based in the temporarily occupied territory of Crimea have been put on full combat readiness, and measures are being taken to disperse the units. It is known about the formation of a motorized rifle division on the territory of the peninsula from those mobilized from the Crimea, the Krasnodar Territory and the Republic of Adygea.

About two thousand mobilized men arrived at the point of permanent deployment of the 810th separate brigade of marines in Sevastopol.


Great more bodies to bury

In further corrections to official Russian government statements:

* Russian soldiers did not retreat from Lyman after being defeated in a game of Candyland by a six year old girl. Diplomatic missives have been issued to the government of Ukraine demanding a rematch but no replies have been forthcoming.

* In a daring operation achieved by elements of the FSB, the GRU, the NRA, and the Ringling Brothers and Barnum and Bailey Circus, the magical sharpie owned by former President Trump has been captured and delivered to Vladimir Putin's map room in his bunker in the Ural Mountains. It is expected that even now President Putin is making plans to reverse the course of the Special Military Operation in Ukraine by creating entirely new armies and air forces through the clever use of drawing circles on the map.

* The Commander-in-Chief of the Russian Navy, Admiral Yevmenov, has taken steps to reduce the size of the Black Sea Fleet due to the ongoing operational concerns and the fact that for political reasons it is imperative the he can show he's doing at least something better than Ukraine. To this end, he has classified both the landing ship Caesar Kunikov and the frigate Admiral Makarov as flagships, so he can claim a 2 to 1 lead over Ukraine in getting them out of the Black Sea.

* While the G.I. Joe cartoon of the decadent West may claim "Knowing is Half the Battle," our brave soldiers know that exploding and being set on fire is fully two-thirds of it. The other third is stealing washing machines.

* In a public relations coup to fight back against internet memes of Ukrainian soldiers with cute kittens, the Foreign Ministry has begun releasing pictures of our soldiers with brave Russian bears. We fully expect this to turn the tide in the meme war, and a grateful nation respects the sacrifices made by camera crews and the majority of the 22nd Motor Rifle Battalion. Memorial services will be held next Thursday.
