Rescued bear from Lyman and russia's terror on Estonia's border: timeline and key solutions of October 6
Today is day 225 of russia's war in Ukraine: we talk about key events at the front, in the rear, and the world, and the leading solutions that bring our victory closer.
Ukrainian army's successes
🇺🇦 The Luhansk region is starting to "un-annex." The Ukrainian Armed Forces liberated six settlements in the Luhansk region.
🇺🇦 In less than a week, the Ukrainian forces cleared more than 400 square km of the Kherson region of the russian occupiers. Since October 1, 29 settlements of the Kherson region have been liberated.
📌 Ukraine's missile troops and artillery performed over 300 fire missions. Enemy losses: nine tanks, 17 armored vehicles, four Msta-S, and Msta-B large-caliber howitzers, another Akatsia self-propelled howitzer, mortar, command, and staff vehicle, Grad multiple-rocket launching system (MRLS), anti-tank missile complex, and two ammunition warehouses in Bashtanka and Beryslav districts.
📌 According to British intelligence, the russian army has problems near Nova Kakhovka in the Kherson region: the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the south advanced the front by 20 km. The russian army is retreating, and it is increasingly difficult for them to replenish their supplies.
📌 The rats from the south and east have started to run away. Amid the Ukrainian counteroffensive in the Kherson region, the Crimeans who had previously arrived to help establish the russian "authority" began to leave the Kherson region. Active supporters of the "Luhansk People's Republic" began to evacuate from Svatove in the Luhansk region.
📌 As the American Institute for the Study of War points out, the russians could not hold the banks of the Oskil and Siverskyi Donets rivers and use them as natural borders to prevent the advance of Ukrainian forces into vulnerable areas of Ukraine's east occupied by russia.
📌 The Wall Street Journal estimated that during the counteroffensive in the east, the Ukrainian Armed Forces captured:
- 460 tanks,
- 92 self-propelled howitzers,
- 448 infantry fighting vehicles,
- 195 armored fighting vehicles,
- 44 MRL systems.
- But the actual numbers are much higher.
📌 Ukraine's air defense destroyed two Orlan-10 drones in the area of Bruskinske in the Beryslav district. Also, nine more Iranian kamikaze drones were shot down.
📌 In the morning, the explosion was in occupied Kherson. The strike was made on the boarding school building. Many russian soldiers were based there. There are also new strikes on the Antonivka bridge and a hit on the deployment of the russian troops in the Ukretelecom building.
📌 On the Mykolaiv-Kherson direction, the Ukrainian Armed Forces bought an infantry fighting vehicle, BMP-1, from the russian occupiers. Three russians surrendered together with the equipment. Earlier, the Mykolayiv governor Kim talked about the Tiger armored vehicle, which was bought from the russians for $5,000. We will remind you that in April, Ukraine's MPs supported the law, which established the rewards to the russians for transferring military equipment of the russian forces to the Ukrainian troops during the surrender.
📌 At night, the russian federation fired seven rockets at high-rise buildings in Zaporizhzhia. People who were sleeping got under the rubble—four dead and seven wounded people, including a 3-year-old girl. The State Emergency Service rescued twenty-one people. Rescue operations continue.
In the first half of the day, there were new strikes on Zaporizhzhia from the S-300 air defense system. The blow fell on the city center and city infrastructure.
📌 Around 6:00 a.m., the russians fired two rockets from the territory of Belarus at the Shepetivka district of the Khmelnytskyi region. One rocket fell next to an infrastructure object, and the other fell on a wasteland. Damage to surrounding buildings was recorded, and there were no casualties.
📌 The russians struck Kharkiv again at night. Several blows fell on industrial facilities in the city's Osnovianskyi district. Fires broke out, and non-residential buildings were partially destroyed. The russians used kamikaze drones.
The Kupiansk (3 people were injured) and Vovchansk districts, as well as settlements in the Bohodukhiv and Kharkiv districts, were shelled across the region.
📌 The russian occupiers shelled the Nikopol district (Dnipropetrovsk region) all night long with rocket launchers and heavy artillery. Ten private houses, an enterprise, and power lines were damaged.
📌 On October 5, the russians killed four civilians in the Donetsk region—three in Torske and one in Zarichne. In addition, ten more civilians killed by the russians during the occupation were found in newly liberated cities: five in Sviatohirsk and five in Lyman. Three more people were injured yesterday.
📌 The victims' bodies were found at a recreation center in the village of Novoplatonivka, Boriova territorial community (Kharkiv region). The police discovered the bodies of two civilian men with signs of torture. Their hands were handcuffed. The victims also had gunshot wounds to the head.
In total, the police of the Kharkiv region found the bodies of 534 civilians in the liberated territories of the region. The figure was announced taking into account 447 bodies from the mass burial site in Izium.
📌 In liberated Lyman (Donetsk region), law enforcement found a cemetery where more than 50 civilians are buried.
📌 The Ukrainian personnel of the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) is threatened that they could be forced to fight for the russian federation if they do not sign the documents on their transfer to work at the russian ROSATOM.
📌 The russians kidnapped Ukrainian refugees who were in front of the southeastern border of Estonia and were standing in line to escape from the russian federation. More than a thousand people were taken by trucks to an unknown destination.
