  • British defense claims Russian air force units have sent elements to Donestk and Lugansnk

    The usual information bulletin produced by the British Ministry of Defense states that, in the last two weeks, Russia will have sent some elements of the VDV, the Russian air force, to the Donetsk and Lugansk fronts, in Donbass.

    “From September to October, most of the heavily weakened VDV units were engaged in the defense of Russian-controlled territory on the territory east of the Dnipro River in the Oblast region.”

    It is also advanced that some units “were probably reinforced with reservists who were mobilized.” “While these poorly trained personnel may dilute the VDV’s supposedly elite competence, it is likely that Russia will still assign these units to sectors deemed especially important,” it can still read.

  • The European director of the WHO visited Dnipro

    Hans Kluge, Belgian doctor and director of the World Health Organization (WHO) for Europe, visited the city of Dnipro, Ukraine. According to Sky News, the visit included passing through hospitals attacked by Russian forces.

    Kluge was “sad” and “outraged” by the consequences of the attacks on medical infrastructure. Sky News quotes the Belgian doctor as saying attacks of this kind are “a very clear violation of international law.”

    Russia has denied attacking civilian infrastructure, but several hospitals in Ukraine have been hit or even destroyed. According to figures shared by the WHO official, at least 700 health care facilities have already been affected during the war. This Wednesday, for example, there was an attack on a maternity hospital in Zaporizia.

  • 70% of kyiv is without electricity

    Vitali Klitschko, the mayor of kyiv, the Ukrainian capital, says 70% of the city remains “in the dark” after Wednesday’s attack.

    Even so, the mayor assures that the workers linked to the energy services “worked all night” to recover the electricity supply.

  • The United States fears that Russia could use chemical weapons in Ukraine

    Some officials in the Joe Biden administration will have already addressed the possibility of Vladimir Putin resorting to chemical weapons in Ukraine, before resorting to nuclear weapons. The news is advanced by Politico, which cites six sources with knowledge of the subject.

    This is a scenario feared by the United States and it is speculated that the Kremlin could make a decision if it loses ground on the battlefront and in the scenario of a confrontation with NATO.

    US concerns, Politico advances, will be accompanied by a certain push from the Biden administration to ensure that allies are prepared for this hypothesis and to mobilize resources and investments for detection systems.
