Ukraine (briefly) 

The two hundred-twenty-nineth (229) day of the heroic resistance of the Ukrainian people to a russian military large-scale invasion continues.

russian occupation army, having no achievements on the battlefield, uses terror tactics against the civilian population of Ukraine. Violating the norms of International Humanitarian Law, the laws and customs of warfare, it strikes critical infrastructure, as well as residential buildings.

The enemy has once again launched missile and air strikes on populous peaceful Ukrainian cities.

Civilians died again.

During the day, the occupiers launched more than 84 rocket and air strikes. For attacks on cities and villages, the enemy used cruise, ballistic, anti-aircraft guided missiles and attack unmanned aerial vehicles. The forces and means of the Air Force, as well as the air defence of the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, destroyed 56 aerial targets: 43 cruise missiles and 13 unmanned aerial vehicles.

In the Volyn and Polissya directions, the situation remains without significant changes. The regime of the self-proclaimed president of the Republic of belarus continues to support russia’s armed aggression, provides bridgeheads for launching strikes on the territory of Ukraine and weapons. At the same time, the formation of an offensive group has not been noted, there is no threat of an attack from the territory of the Republic of belarus as of October 10.
