Ukraine: Five Communities Liberated

The presidential office in Kyiv said Ukraine had retaken five more villages in the southern part of the country.

At the same time, new Russian attacks were reported against Zaporizhzhya, among others.

The five villages allegedly liberated are located in the Pereslav district of the Kherson region, which Russia declared as Russian territory at the end of September in violation of international law.

The Ukrainian counterattack in southern Ukraine began at the end of August. Last week, Kyiv said the country’s army had recaptured more than 400 square kilometers in Kherson in less than a week.

At the same time, there were reports of new Russian bombing of the cities of Zaporizhzhya and Nikopol. The information has not been confirmed by an independent body.

Kyiv Independent wrote on Twitter that a six-year-old girl and her mother were injured in the Russian attack on Nikopol.

According to the governor of the Zaporizhzhya region, Oleksandr Staroch, several Russian robots hit the city and its suburbs on Wednesday night. And Staruch announced via Telegram that no one should be infected, according to CNN.

The governor adds that rescue workers pulled three people out of a destroyed apartment building.

On Wednesday, the nuclear power plant of the same name for the region again lost power supply, the head of the International Atomic Energy Agency, Rafael Grossi, wrote on Twitter.

The Zaporizhzhya power plant now relies on diesel-powered generators to maintain the power needed to cool the plant’s six reactors and other critical safety functions. However, the plant’s reactors have been closed for some time, which means cooling requirements are much lower than before.

In parallel, arms shipments continue to arrive in Ukraine. According to Defense Minister Oleksij Reznikov, the country has now received its first Iris-T defense system – known in Sweden as Robot 98 – from Germany. Iris-T is a short-range infrared hunting robot touted as Germany’s most advanced defense system.

Reznikov mentions that US NASAM-type ground-based air defense systems are also on the way.
