The pro-Russian forces prevented an attempt to break through by the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kherson region
1 Ukraine The Russian forces have repelled the attempts of the Ukrainian forces to make a break through in the Kherson region — the deputy head of the regional administration, Kirill Stremousov, reported on his Telegram. The pro-Russian forces have stopped the Ukrainian push in the Berislav area. Over the past few days, the Ukrainian forces have been storming the Kherson defense line in several directions: through Zolotaya Balka towards Berislav, through Novaya Kakhovka and through Davydov Brod towards the city of Kherson. The Pro-Russian forces are trying to hold the line. Several settlements were abandoned. At the moment, the Ukrainian troops are blocked between Zolotaya Balka and Dudchani. A gray zone was formed in that area where the Ukrainian forces managed to gain a foothold. The pro-Russian forces seek to stop them from advancing further. Military reporters reported that during the last night, the Russian air force couldn’t provide an air support to the ground forces due to a rain. Currently such limitation is absent.
2 Donbass The Ukrainian forces are continuing the offensive near the town of Kremennaya — a representative of the LPR People’s Militia, Andrey Marochko, reported. He added that according to the intelligence data — the Ukrainian forces are inflicting the main strikes on the town and the areas nearby from the western direction. «The enemy continues to advance near the town of Kremennaya» — Marochko concluded. Earlier, a military correspondent Aleksandr Kots reported that the Ukrainian forces were approaching the town of Kremennaya, in which a regrouping of the Russian forces that were pulled from the town of Krasny Liman took place. According to the journalist Yevgeny Poddubny — the Ukrainian forces have changed their offensive tactics. The Ukrainian high command doesn’t throw their forces into a frontal assault, but allows them to firstly carry out attacks on the communications.
3 Donbass A representative of the People’s Militia of the LPR, Andrey Marochko, stated that the Ukrainian troops on the territory of the LPR are stuck inside a «fire bag» — the RIA NEWS reported. «The Ukrainian troops managed to advance for a short distance — from 1.5 to 2 kilometers. This was done in order for Zelensky to report about his successes. He didn’t mention that he sent his troops to a certain death. They are now under fire from 3 directions from the LPR and Russian forces, namely from north, east, and south. All those who entered the territory of the LPR are being eliminated» — Andrei Marocho concluded.
4 Russia The borders of the new territories of Russia were officially defined. The regulation noted that the DPR, LPR, Zaporozhye and Kherson regions are included in Russia within the boundaries that existed on the day of their formation and entry into Russia. This was indicated in the international documents, submitted for the ratification to the Russian Parliament. According to the official documents, the boundaries of the territory of the Zaporozhye region are defined by the borders of the territory of the Zaporozhye region that existed on the day of its formation and the day the Zaporozhye region was accepted as a new part of Russia — the RIA NEWS reported. The same details were specified in the agreements with the DPR, the LPR, and the Kherson region. After agreeing on all issues with the borders, Vladimir Putin submitted the treaties on new territories for a ratification to the Russian Parliament. Earlier, the Constitutional Court approved a package of documents on the entry of the LPR, the DPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions into Russia. On 3rd of October the Russian parliament ratified the treaties on the admission of the DPR, the LPR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions into Russia.
5 Russia — Japan While speaking at a plenary session of the lower house of parliament, the Japanese Prime Minister, Fumio Kishida, stated that the Japanese government will continue to pursue a policy, aimed at resolving the territorial issues, and concluding a peace treaty with Russia, despite the escalation of the relations between states due to the situation in Ukraine. Since the middle of the last century, Moscow and Tokyo have been negotiating a peace agreement after the results of the 2nd World War. The main obstacle remains to be the disagreement over the rights over the southern part of the Kuril island — the TASS reported. The Russian presidential spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, ruled out the possibility of negotiating a peace treaty with Japan. «Certainly, under such conditions, it is impossible to negotiate a peace treaty» — Peskov told to the reporters. He added that Japan took a place among other Western countries, and became an unfriendly country for Russia, which doesn’t allow negotiations — the RIA NEWS reported.
6 Sweden — Denmark «The pressure inside both pipes of the damaged ’Nord Stream 1’ gas pipeline, and inside the pipe ’A’ of the ’Nord Stream 2’ has stabilized. The gas leaks have stopped» — the Gazprom reported on Telegram. «Gazprom is pumping out the natural gas from the pipe. It will allow a safe inspection of integrity of the pipe ’B’, and to reduce the potential environmental risks in case of possible gas leaks” — the message concluded. Gas leaks at ’Nord Stream 1’ and ’Nord Stream 2’ were found on 26th of September in 4 places at once, within the exclusive economic zone of Sweden and Denmark. The authorities of Germany, Denmark and Sweden do not rule out that the cause of the emergency was a sabotage — the RIA NEWS reported.
