Drones taking out S-300s in the vicinity of a frontline is huge, because it allows close air support by attack helicopters and Su-25, whose use up to now was constricted by Ukrainian S-300. They have somewhere around 50 batteries left, down from a few hundreds at the start of the war, with a good chunk of these being hand me downs from EE allies.

▪️ At the Svatove sector, the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost part of the territories in the Kuzemivka area and retreated to Berestove.

▪️ During another assault attempt, the enemy came under attack from Russian artillery and army aviation, after which he retreated back to the bridgehead on the east bank of the Zherebets River.
▪️ The Armed Forces of Ukraine still have a reserve of at least 6 battalion tactical groups. This still allows the Ukrainian command to rotate and try to wear down the defense of the RF Armed Forces, regardless of their own losses.

▪️ There are no significant changes in the front lines in the Lysychansk sector. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are continuously shelling the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Bilohorivka and Hryhorivka."

Interesting article from al-jazeera suggestions Russia may be preparing to hold Kherson city as opposed to withdraw.

Quote Zelensky " “A lot more has to be invested in the survival of the existing manpower"

Russian offensive operations in the Ugledar/Vuhledar direction - south-west of Donetsk city.



"On the night of October 28-29, the Russian Armed Forces launched an offensive against the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Ugledar (60 km southwest of Donetsk).
The first blow with the Giatsint-B guns of the RF Armed Forces was delivered on the eastern outskirts of the city. The Krasnopol high-precision projectile destroyed the headquarters and the electronic intelligence center of the 1st operational brigade of the National Guard of Ukraine - the so-called presidential brigade. A month ago, this formation already suffered heavy losses in Ugledar: when trying to counterattack the RF Armed Forces near Pavlovka (3 km south-west of Ugledar), the brigade lost at least four tanks and 60 people killed.
Also, the 1st and 2nd mechanized battalions of the 53rd MechanizedBrigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, armed with the Soviet Akatsiya and Gvozdika self-propelled guns, as well as American M777A2 guns, suffered heavy losses during the night strike on the rear of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Ugledar. UAVs "Lancet" and "Kub" hit at least two Buk-M1 air defense systems covering the positions of artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the west of Ugledar.
During the offensive, the RF Armed Forces managed to take under fire control a large section of the Novomykolaivka-Pokrovsk-Bakhmut highway to the north-east of Ugledar, along which units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine received supplies.
According to the Military Chronicle, in order to avoid the encirclement of the garrison of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Ugledar, the reserves of the 93rd Mechanized Brigade "Kholodnyi Yar", the 68th separate jaeger brigade, as well as the 24th separate assault battalion "Aidar" can be thrown into battle." - Military Chronicle

"In one of the sections on the Uludar direction, we are making an attempt to attack the enemy. Aviation worked intensively, units began to advance. I consider this decision premature, but I hope for success." - Khodakovsky

"Army and assault aviation worked in the morning along the enemy's first line of defense in the Ugledar direction. Later, the TOS-1 Solntsepyok heavy flamethrower systems, cannon and rocket artillery joined the case. According to reports from the field, the greatest losses of the forces of the Kiev regime suffered in the area of the village of Pavlovka, which is south-west of Ugledar itself. It is in Pavlovka that there is a large automobile interchange, which allowed the enemy forces to carry out the supply of ammunition and carry out rotation." - Poddubny

"The enemy's first line of defense in the Ugledar direction in the Pavlovka area was almost completely plowed up. There is a forest where the enemy has dug in, but our TOS-1 Sunbakers are actively burning it out. The enemy threw reinforcement equipment, which our aircraft and artillery are actively destroying, preventing them from approaching the first line of defense. There are also successes in other sectors of the front in the Donetsk direction. It is difficult to imagine what losses the enemy is suffering. But if they had surrendered in advance, as they were previously offered, they would have remained alive." - Bezsonov

Zaporozhye/Zaporizhzhia - 30.10.2022
zaporozhye30102022.jpg
"The situation in the Zaporozhye direction as of 11:00 /Moscow time/ October 30, 2022
▪️ The command of the operational-tactical group "Dnepr" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine continues to transfer forces to the forefront. Along the front line, engineering formations are equipping strongholds.
▪️ Units of the 3rd battalion of the 65th Mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, equipped with NLAW anti-tank systems and AT4 RPGs, arrived in the Bilohiriya-Charivne area.
▪️ There is a tank company in the reserve of the 65th Mechanized Brigade in the Kirove-Komyshuvakha area.
▪️ Members of the national battalion "Azov" are expected to arrive in the Zaporozhye region.
▪️ In connection with the activity of the Russian Geran-2 UAVs in Novoyakovlivka, Komyshuvakha and Lezhino, mobile positions of the Gepard anti-aircraft systems were equipped.
▪️ Also, several EDM-4S UAV countermeasure systems were handed over to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and electronic warfare equipment is operating in Matviivka to the northeast of Zaporozhye.
▪️ Russian troops are conducting a massive shelling of Ukrainian positions along the entire line of contact. The command of the operational-tactical group "Dnepr" requested additional counter-battery radars to search for and destroy artillery and MLRS of the RF Armed Forces."



Ugledar/Vuhledar - 30.10.2022
ugledar30102022.jpg
"The situation in the Ugledar direction as of 15:00 /Moscow time/ October 30, 2022
▪️ Units of the Marine Corps of the Pacific Fleet, together with the special forces of the DPR and National Guard of the Russian Federation, advanced on Ukrainian positions in the direction of the village of Pavlivka and were able to penetrate 3.5 km deep into the defense line of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and break through it, reaching the southern outskirts of Pavlivka.
▪️ As a result, Russian soldiers destroyed 28 strongholds and positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and over 70 enemy people, excluding the wounded.
▪️ Now the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are cleaning up the settlement.
▪️ At the same time, the Pacific Fleet troops entrenched themselves on the commanding heights in the area south of the village of Novomykhailivka, destroying in the process, 20 people of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
▪️ Army aviation helicopters and artillery of the Russian Armed Forces are conducting massive fire on Ukrainian strongholds, supporting the advancing Russian units - more than 400 objects were hit during the day.
▪️ The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is taking all measures to curb the advance of Russian troops, using tactical and army aviation - in the area of Kostyantynivka, the Buk air defense system of the RF Armed Forces hit a Mi-8 helicopter, and the operator of the Igla MANPADS of the Pacific Fleet Marines shot down the SU-25 of the Armed Forces of Ukraine over Mykilske.
▪️ Additional units of the 68th Jaeger Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been deployed in the vicinity of Bohoyavlenka and Prechystivka.
▪️ DRGs of the 68th Jaeger Brigade were sent to the area of Yehorivka to attempt sabotage in the rear of the Russian troops.
▪️ Given the pace of advancement of the Russian fighters, the purge of Pavlivka will be completed in the near future, and Ugledar will be taken into a semicircle. Russian troops will return the positions they left in the summer.
▪️ If reinforcements are not transferred to the Ukrainian formations, very soon Russian troops will reach Vodyane and the coal mine. In this case, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will have to retreat and build up defenses along the Uspenivka-Kostyantynivka line along the Sukhi Yaly River. And this, in turn, will jeopardize the supply of the Donetsk grouping of the enemy along the Zaporozhye-Donetsk highway."

ugledar31102022.JPG
"The situation in the Ugledar direction as of 12:00 /Moscow time/ October 31, 2022
▪️ Units and formations from the 29th Combined Arms Army and the 68th Army Corps of the RF Armed Forces, together with the National Militia of the DPR continue their offensive in the Ugledar direction.
▪️ At the moment, about 60% of the village of Pavlivka has been cleared. According to military correspondent Yevgeny Poddubny, Russian troops managed to take control of the crossings over the Kashlahach River - thus, the Armed Forces of Ukraine control the state farm on the other side, and only scattered pockets of resistance remain in the village itself.
▪️ The enemy deployed reinforcements at night - at least six 155mm self-propelled howitzers, several armored personnel carriers and tanks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine arrived on the outskirts of the village. Most likely, now additional positions will be hastily equipped on the way of the advance of Russian troops to Uugledar.
▪️ Further advancement of Russian troops is complicated by bad weather and the nature of the terrain: firing positions and observation posts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are equipped in the multi-storey buildings in Ugledar, from where it is possible to fire and adjust the fire damage in Pavlivka.
▪️ Russian troops continue to advance south of Novomykhailivka, where strikes are delivered at the junction of the defensive formations of the 72nd Mechanized and 79th Air Assault brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - over the past 24 hours, over 120 enemy people, 2 tanks, 3 infantry fighting vehicles, 3 armored vehicles, 4 pickups and 5 cars were destroyed under the blows of the Russian troops.
▪️ The immediate goal of the attack on Ugledar is to pull the reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the Pavlivka sector and force the enemy to expose the flank south of Novomykhailivka. Success in this sector will make it possible to reach the Ugledar-Kostyantynivka highway and continue the attack on Ugledar from the northeast."
