    Ministry of Defence of Ukraine, posted 09 November 2022 19:31

    Glory to Ukraine! The two hundred fifty-ninth (259) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.

    The enemy is trying to keep the temporarily captured territories, concentrates efforts on restraining the actions of the Defense Forces in certain areas. Conducts offensive actions in the Bakhmut, Avdiivka and Novopavlivka directions.

    During the current day, the enemy launched 8 missile and 10 air strikes, carried out more than 4 MLRS attacks.

    Areas of more than 15 settlements of the Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Mykolaiv, and Sumy oblasts were hit by the enemy.

    In the Volyn and Polissya directions, the situation remains without significant changes. The republic of belarus continues to support the armed aggression of the russian federation against Ukraine, accepts and hosts russian servicemen, and provides training fields. The formation of a joint russian-belarusian grouping of troops is underway. The threat of enemy strikes and the use of attack UAVs from the territory and airspace of the republic of belarus remains.

    The enemy shelled in other directions:

    in the Siverskyi direction - from barrel and jet artillery, in the areas of settlements of Novomykolaivka and Ulanove, Sumy oblasts. The enemy also used an attack UAV;

    in the Slobozhansk direction - from mortars, rocket and barrel artillery, in the areas of Hryhorivka and Kolodyazne settlements. Attack UAV is used;

    in the Kupyansk and Lyman directions - from artillery of various types, in the areas of the settlements of Kupyansk and Bilohorivka;

    in the Bakhmut direction - from tanks and the entire range of artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Bilohorivka, Opytne, New York and Pivdenne;

    in the Avdiyivka direction - from tanks, mortars, barrel and rocket artillery, in the areas of the settlements of Vuhledar, Kamianka, Vesele and Novobakhmutivka;

    in the Novopavlivsk and Zaporizhzhia directions - from tanks and various caliber artillery, in the areas of Vremivka and Kamianske settlements;

    Areas of more than 25 settlements near the contact line were shelled in the South Buh direction. In addition, the enemy continued to conduct aerial reconnaissance, actively using UAVs. Made more than 50 flies.

    The moral and psychological condition of mobilized russian citizens undergoing training in the Kursk and Bryansk regions is significantly deteriorating due to the difference between the picture of russian propaganda and the actual situation, inhumane conditions of stay and lack of promised payments.

    russian units undergoing training in the area of the city of Baranovichi, Brest region, were issued obsolete weapons and property - metal helmets of the Second World War model and means of protection from the period of the 60-70 years of the last century. In addition, a large part of small arms, namely AK-74 assault rifles, are in non-working condition due to poor storage conditions.

    According to detailed information, the russian occupiers are taking away looted property and stolen cars from the city of Severodonetsk, Luhansk oblast. Looting takes place under cover and accompanied by representatives of the occupation's so-called state security agencies.

    During the current day, the aviation of the Defense Forces of Ukraine struck the enemy 4 times. 2 areas of concentration of personnel, weapons and military equipment, as well as 2 positions of the enemy's anti-aircraft defense equipment, were damaged.

    Also, our soldiers shot down 5 "Shakhed" and 2 "Orlan" UAVs in different directions.

    During the current day, units of missile forces and artillery of the Defense Forces struck 6 areas of concentration of manpower, weapons and military equipment, 2 electronic warfare stations and other important military objects of the enemy.

    We support the Armed Forces! Together we will win! Glory to Ukraine!
