Putin’s forces moved Black Sea fleet from Crimea to Krasnodar amid security threats – British Ministry of Defense

Russian forces “almost certainly” moved their submarines from Crimea to Krasnodar in southern Russia in the face of a local security threat, UK Defense Minister said today.

“The command of the Russian Black Sea Fleet has almost certainly moved its KILO-class submarines from the home port of Sevastopol in the Crimea to Novorossiysk in Krasnodar Krai in southern Russia,” the ministry said in the latest intelligence update.

“This is very likely due to the recent shift in the level of local security threat in the face of Ukraine’s increased long-range strike capability. In the past two months, the fleet command and the main airfield of naval aviation have been attacked, ”he added.

The Ministry of National Defense noted that “guaranteeing the Black Sea Fleet base in Crimea was probably one of the motivations of Russian President Vladimir Putin to annex the peninsula in 2014”.

The security of the base has now been directly undermined by Russia’s continued aggression against Ukraine, he added.


Putin has failed to achieve any strategic goal in Ukraine, says a US official

A high-ranking US official said Vladimir Putin had not achieved any strategic goals during the invasion of Ukraine.

The official added: “It worked, and the Russians withdrew from the region under the capital and moved their troops east,” referring to the Kremlin’s exit from Kharkiv.

“On September 1 … President Putin called for the entire Donetsk province to be under Russia’s control by September 15,” the official said, in line with a statement by the State Department.

“But Putin’s forces have clearly failed,” he added.

A US official added that “In contrast, the Ukrainian military has high morale because it continues its march in a very deliberate manner.”

The authorities in Ukraine are still trying to assess the incidents and war crimes that have taken place for months in areas under the control of Russian troops.

Workers use shovels to dig up partially decomposed bodies, officials said. Locals said the remains were on the streets of the city long after their deaths, before being buried in the city.

“The soldiers had their hands tied, there were traces of torture on the civilian population,” Serhiy Bolvinov, the head of the investigative police in the Kharkiv region, said on Monday.

At least 17 soldiers have been found buried in a mass grave on the spot, officials said.

Ukrainian soldiers successfully liberated the critical Kharkiv region last week, marking a significant and dramatic turn of events in the war.


The US can supply Ukraine with tanks, the report said

The United States may want to send more heavy artillery to the ongoing war in Ukraine, a high-ranking military official said CNN reports.

The tanks are “absolutely on the table”, according to the official, but are currently not an option due to training, maintenance and upkeep issues.

“We look at the entirety of the Ukrainian armed forces and consider what capabilities they will need in the future and how the US and our allies will be able to support Ukraine in building these capabilities,” the official said in a background interview. with reporters.


The war with Ukraine will be presented tomorrow at the UN General Assembly as “the most important issue”

The war in Ukraine will be the most important issue at the UN General Assembly tomorrow, said Josep Borrell, EU foreign minister.

“Last year we talked about Afghanistan, and this week Ukraine will be the most important. Because the war in Ukraine is not only the war in Ukraine, ”said Mr Borrell in yesterday’s speech.

He added: “The Ukrainians are fighting, they are bombarded with rockets; and the rest of the world is suffering from rising energy and food prices, increasing uncertainty and high interest rates. “


Zelensky asks his allies to pour more weapons as his troops liberate more territories

In his evening speech, Volodymyr Zelensky continued his action to obtain more weapons from Ukraine’s allies against the Russian invasion.

“We are honest about it – the pace of providing aid to Ukraine should correspond to the pace of our movement,” Zelenski said.

The Ukrainian war leader said he would use an upcoming video speech to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday to search for more weapons and speed up the delivery of aid.

“Tomorrow will be a very important day – we are preparing a speech at the UN General Assembly. There will be important signals from our country, ”said the Ukrainian president.

“We are doing our best to meet the needs of Ukraine at all levels – defense, financial, economic and diplomatic,” Zelenskiy said.


Putin’s troops are clearly in panic, says Zelenskiy

Volodymyr Zelensky said that the Russian “occupiers” panicked as his troops further consolidate their position in other reclaimed territories, adding that his fighters will focus on “speed” now in the next stage of the war.

“Kharkiv Oblast – we are stabilizing the situation, we are keeping our positions. Tightly. So much so that the occupiers palpably panic. Well, we warned that Russian soldiers in Ukraine have only two options: either flee our land or surrender, ”Zelenskiy said in his late night speech.

He added that he was presenting similar opportunities to colleagues. “… Either they will try to escape and it will turn out whether Russia will let them into its territory, even despite the issue of passports, or the collaborators will be sentenced in accordance with the current Ukrainian legislation,” Zelenskiy said.

“The speed at which our troops are moving. Speed ​​of restoring normal life, ”he added, emphasizing Kiev’s renewed focus on“ speed ”in the liberated areas.
