The military of the Luhansk People’s Republic prevented a Ukrainian attempt to break through
1 The LPR The LPR forces prevented a Ukrainian attempt to break the lines near the village of Berestovoye — the LPR forces reported on Telegram. They added that the unsuccessful infiltration attempt by a Ukrainian sabotage and scouting group took place during a shift change of the LPR forces. The 4th brigade from the 2nd army corps of the LPR firmly hold their defense line near the village of Berestovoye. The Ukrainian troops are using small groups to test the defense lines of the pro-Russian forces. Recently, the representative of the LPR in Moscow, Rodion Miroshnik, stated that the Russian military had stopped Ukrainian forces near the village of Kremennaya. Shelling and air strikes forced the Ukrainian forces to fall back, but they still lost some military vehicles.
2 Russia — Turkey After returning to the “grain deal”, the Russian delegation resumed the work at the Joint Coordinating Center in Istanbul, where representatives from Turkey, Ukraine and the UN work together. It became possible after Kiev gave written security guarantees, thanks to the help from Turkey. The Russian experts are inspecting the ships, going to and from the Ukrainian ports. The current situation was discussed on 3rd of November, in Jordan, by the foreign ministers of Russia and Jordan, Sergei Lavrov and Ayman Hussein Abdullah al-Safadi. Sergey Lavrov stated that the transportation of the Ukrainian grain goes as usual. The export of the Russian cargo still doesn’t happen.
3 The UK — Ukraine «The UK gave to Ukraine some submarine UAVs with which Kiev could carry out a terrorist attack against the Black Sea Fleet» — the Russian Ministry of foreign affairs stated. On 3rd of November the UK Ambassador, Deborah Bronnert, was invited to the Foreign Office building where she was informed about a strong protest against the active participation of London in the training of the Special Operation Forces of Ukraine. The Russian Foreign Ministry gave examples of such cooperation. Back in September of 2020, London and Kiev agreed to expand the training program of the Ukrainian combat divers by the UK instructors. Underwater saboteurs are being trained on the military base of the separate special operations center «South», named after Ataman Golovaty, in Ochakovo. Specialists are being trained in a «special purpose diver» program, with the development of deep-sea subversive skills — it takes place in a school of military divers, located in the city of Odessa. In August and September about 15 British instructors taught Ukrainian servicemen how to operate underwater drones, made to destroy ships. The training took place on the Pervomaisky Island, in the delta of the Dnieper river, 3 kilometers south of Ochakov.
4 Republics of Donbass The Ukrainian forces used US-made MLRS HIMARS to attack the administration building of one of the districts in the south-west of the Kherson region. Part of the building was destroyed. An another Ukrainian attack took place next to the dam at the reservoir of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station. The Russian air defense forces intercepted the incoming missiles. An another terrorist attack was prevented on a railway in the Kherson region. IEDs were planted under the rails. The Ukrainian attacks on the DPR are escalating as well — the residential buildings and socially significant facilities are under fire. A hospital, a church, and a bus with passengers were attacked in the city of Donetsk. 3 people were injured. In the town of Dokuchaevsk, a local kindergarten was hit. Heavy NATO artillery was used to attack the LPR towns of Svatovo and Severodonetsk. The shells hit local bus stations.
5 Turkey The Turkish Justice Minister, Bekir Bozdag, stated that Finland and Sweden have yet to give to Ankara a single person, involved in the terrorist activities, whose extradition is requested by Turkey. According to him — the issue of extradition will be discussed on 8th of November, during the visit of the Swedish Prime Minister, Ulf Kristersson, to Turkey. Bekir Bozdag reminded about the Turkish position on the issue of membership of both Scandinavian countries in the NATO. Turkey recently stated that the memorandum, signed in June with Sweden and Finland, during the NATO summit in Madrid, isn’t final. The Turkish parliament may not approve the memorandum if those 2 Scandinavian countries won’t fulfill their obligations to counter the terrorist organizations.
