Ukrainian troops have repelled continued enemy attacks near the Donetsk Oblast villages of New York, Zaitseve, and Soledar over the past day, the Ukrainian military’s General Staff said in its morning report on Oct. 1.
Russian invasion forces are still concentrating all their efforts on trying to entirely occupy Donetsk Oblast and maintain control of previously occupied territories – as well as undermining the Ukrainian army’s offensive operations in various other locations, the General Staff said.
Russian forces on Sept. 30 carried out four missile and 15 air strikes, as well as over 85 MLRS attacks on military and civilian objects in Ukraine.
Over the course of the day, Ukrainian aviation conducted eleven strikes. It was confirmed that an enemy stronghold, six enemy storage locations of weapons and military equipment, and four hostile air defense systems had been struck.
In addition, Ukrainian air defense units shot down three UAVs and a Ka-52 helicopter.
Artillery units struck eleven control centers of varying levels, as well as eight sites where there were large concentrations of troops, weaponry, and military equipment. In addition, fourteen additional Russian military facilities were targeted, including ammunition depots, anti-aircraft missile systems, river crossings, radar systems, and reconnaissance posts.
Furthermore, the leadership of the Russian military, according to the General Staff, has been forced to prematurely deploy cadets of military schools to the war due to a serious shortage of personnel – particularly officers.
As a result, cadets from the Tyumen Military School will graduate early. The graduates will be reassigned to primary officer positions in military units manned by mobilized reserve personnel.
Cadets from the Ryazan Airborne School's final programs are being deployed to prepare units for the mobilization reserve, which is carried out on training grounds near Ryazan, Omsk, Pskov, Tula, and other cities. Training and coordination measures are planned for these units for a period of no more than one month before their deployment to the front lines in Ukraine.
