I keep wondering what they hope to accomplish with random missile attacks on civilians. It's just going to make the Ukrainians even more resolved to drive them out.

There's no hope to accompish anything, it's just Punishment on civilians for the country not lying down and taking the genocide russia had planned for them.

Pretty much. Use of precision guided missiles (PGMs) is decided at the Kremlin level, because the orcs are burning through a year's production of PGMs every two weeks or so (old data, might be different now). This means the tube and rocket artillery available usually has a circular-error probability measured in tens of meters to kilometers. The orcs can't reliably hit militarily-useful targets- especially mobile ones- so they're just trying to destroy everything Ukrainian within artillery range as an act of terror. Cities, towns, and villages can't move, so the orcs are trying to blow them up while they still have the opportunity.

The orcs aren't even bothering to try justifying these large-scale attacks on civilian targets by claiming they're trying to destroy some critical military-related industry. The orcs are bombing civilians out of spite- because the Ukrainians are successfully resisting.

fark the orcs- individually and collectively. Lend-Lease is fully operational, so let us give Ukraine everything they ask for. Don't bother putting restrictions on the use of the boomtoys and other goodies, just feed UAF anything and everything which will kill orcs and let them run with it. Theater-defense laser systems, ATACMS, combat aircraft, tanks, artillery, small arms, ammo and spare parts for all of the above- give them whatever they want. Set up maintenance and repair facilities just across the borders in Poland and Romania to teach UAF maintenance teams how to keep all of the above in working order (and conduct repairs for specialty cases). Give Ukraine a few squintillion transport vehicles to keep supplies flowing, too. The faster the orc infestation is dealt with, the fewer Ukrainians will get murdered, tortured, raped, kidnapped or otherwise abused by the invaders.

And judging by the speed they've been moving at, they aren't too far off from doing that.

Polish Hussar: [Fark user image 600x545]


The line of contact south of Zaporizhzhia city has been suspiciously quiet (ish) for a bit too long. Melitopol and Tokamk are major logistics nodes for everything orcish in the south and west orcupied territories, and Vladimir the Incompetent has been shifting troops away from Melitopol for weeks. There have been reports by russian milbloggers over the last month or so claiming UAF has been quietly building up troop strength north of the line of contact. Given the logistics-centered operations UAF has been conducting in the other theaters, Tokmak and Melitopol probably figure prominently in UAF plans for southern Zaporizhzhia Oblast.

There are a few natural obstacles northwest of Tokmak which might slow a UAF attack, but there are three major roads leading there to help. The orcs have to hold both Tokmak and Melitopol in order to have a prayer of holding onto anything in southern Ukraine, but I suspect the orc defenses there are unlikely to be up to the task. Once Melitopol is liberated, everything orcish west of the city would have to head toward Crimea in order to escape the trap southern Ukraine would have become.

Lend-Lease in Russian: the Armed Forces seized a lot of equipment in Donbas

According to The Wall Street Journal, the Ukrainian military, while liberating Donbas, captured 460 Russian tanks, 92 self-propelled howitzers, 448 BMPs, 195 armored combat vehicles and 44 self-propelled howitzers. The real number of captured Russian equipment may be much higher.

Yep, Russia is no longer Communist. It is now a semi-theocratic Christian capitalist kleptocracy run by wealthy oligarchs and the Republicans want to see that occur also in the United States (probably with even more theocracy).

Russia forcibly deported more than 1.6 million Ukrainians

" More than 1.6 million Ukrainians have already been forcibly deported to Russia. They are scattered throughout the territory of this country, scattered in remote regions of Russia. Many of them had their documents taken away, many of them passed through the terrible filtration camps of the occupiers, where they were mocked and intimidated ." , - said President Volodymyr Zelenskyi in an address to the participants of the session of the General Assembly of the Organization of American States (OAS), which is ongoing in Lima.

He emphasized that there is only one question now: how many more Ukrainians can Russia kill and kidnap before it admits defeat, and how many more grains, resources, and industrial enterprises will the Russian Federation manage to steal from Ukraine, which the invaders simply disassemble and export to Russia.

" We are doing everything to free our land as soon as possible, to save all our people from this invasion as soon as possible. We are doing everything to put an end to the long list of Ukrainian victims created by Russia ," Zelenskyy emphasized.

The US Ministry of Defense reported that the new aid package is adapted to the " urgent needs of Ukraine "

GMLRS missiles, which the Ukrainians have for HIMARS and will additionally receive in the latest aid package from the US, allow to reach most targets on the battlefield, including Crimea. This was stated by Assistant Secretary of Defense Laura Cooper during a briefing at the Pentagon on October 4.

" The weapons and equipment in this [aid to Ukraine] package are adapted to meet Ukraine's urgent needs. Ukraine has demonstrated the ability to use these capabilities to degrade Russian logistics and command and control, creating opportunities for Ukraine to maneuver and advance ," she said.

Citizens are not released from the Russian Federation Ukrainians with Russian passports

On the borders of Russia with Latvia and Estonia - the accumulation of citizens of Ukraine. People expect from 2 to 6 days, including at night, without the possibility of heating, adequate provision of food and water.

" Trying to cross the border using the passport documents of a citizen of Ukraine, they are forced to undergo filtering organized by the FSB of the Russian Federation, in order to see if they have a passport of a citizen of the Russian Federation. If it is established that they have a passport of the Russian Federation, such citizens will not be allowed in," the Ministry of Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories said.

It is reported that Ukrainians who, for example, are registered in Crimea, but do not have a passport of the Russian Federation, are allowed to cross the border. This is confirmed by representatives of consular institutions in Estonia and Latvia.

For those of you new to the Ukrainian War threads or who are only able to check them occasionally, here's my post summarizing the WW3 threads for September 24 to September 30. Russia ramped up their side of the war with a partial mobilization of 300,000 men but it didn't stop Lyman from being retaken by Ukraine

Oneiros should be around to post the most up-to-date list of aid links, but here's the most recent list which should be mostly fresh until he is. Older summaries along with an archive of threads can be found here in a spreadsheet being maintained by notmyjab if you need to catch up on that. Specific posts are under the "articles" tab. And if you need a good laugh, check out danceswithcrow's meme emporium.

The occupiers are trying to steal Ukrainian children from the Kherson region under the guise of "vacation in Crimea"

Deputy of the Regional Council Serhiy Khlan notes that the self-proclaimed authorities announced vacations in schools of the Kherson region - from October 6 to 21 (allegedly due to the request of parents, in fact in connection with the counteroffensive of the ZSU). During this period, the invaders invite children to go to the annexed Crimea as if to improve their health, the deputy informs. Similar "noble initiatives" were already in Kharkiv Oblast, when parents were persuaded to send their children to summer children's camps in the Russian Federation. After the invaders fled, the children were not returned, although the terms of the "passes" expired.

" It seems that the Russians are planning such a trick in our country, in the Kherson region. Parents, racists do not want to improve the health of Ukrainian children, these are provocations. They want to take the children hostage, kidnap them, resettle them," Serhii Khlan wrote. He emphasized that the Russian Federation will bear responsibility for such actions, but parents should do everything to protect their children, and therefore keep them as far as possible from the Russian invaders .
