The 202nd day of the Russia-Ukraine War: official operational information by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on 13.09.2022.

The Russian Federation’s efforts are still concentrated on taking over Donetsk oblast’s territory, preserving the temporarily taken areas, and impeding Ukrainian troops’ offensive operations in specific directions in Ukraine.

Russia moves its forces, attempts to take action to recover the lost position, performs illegal aerial surveillance, and inflicts fire damage on Ukrainian troops’ units. On the whole of Ukraine, there is still a threat of air and missile attacks.

The Russian army keeps up its terrorization and intimidation of the populace. The affected cities were Kharkiv and Lozova.

Infrastructure around the communities of Bilohorivka, Vesela Dolyna, Zaitseve, Yuriyivka, New York (Donetsk region), Pervomayske, Kamyanka, Stepove, Mali Shcherbaky, Sukhyi Stavok, Kostromka, Bila Krynytsya, and Myrne was destroyed by Russian airstrikes and anti-aircraft missile firing.

In total, Russian troops have carried out 11 MLRS strikes, 25 air strikes, two missile strikes, and 25 air strikes against military and civilian targets on Ukrainian soil during the previous 24 hours.

There hasn’t been much of a shift in the Volyn and Polissya directions.
Russia also used barrel and jet artillery, tanks, battle vehicles, mortars, and other weapons to bombard the infrastructure from various directions:

  • the localities of Sukha Balka, Mykolayivka Druha, Zaytseve, Soledar, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, and Vesela Dolyna in the direction of Bakhmut;
  • in the vicinity of Atynske and Stukalivka, Sumy oblast, in the direction of Siverskyi;
  • in the communities of Kamianske, Mala Tokmachka, Shcherbaky, Charivne, Nesterianka, Orihiv, Bilohiria, Zaliznychne, Temyrivka, Novopole, and Vremivka that are located in the Zaporizhzhia region.
  • Kozacha Lopan, Baranivka, and Kupyansk districts, in the Kharkiv direction;
  • in the vicinity of the towns of Pryshyb, Bilohorivka, Kramatorsk, Slovyansk, Staryi Karavan, Starodubivka, Spirne, Rozdolivka, and Hryhorivka in the direction of Kramatorsk;
  • the towns of Avdiyivka, Orlivka, Lastochkyne, Krasnohorivka, Vodiane, Mariyinka, and Novomykhailivka in the Avdiyivka oblast;
  • near Vuhledar, Prechystivka, Novoukrainka, and Vremivka in the Novopavlivskyyi direction;

In the direction of South Buh, Russian artillery firing along the contact line was recorded. Additionally, the Russian army used unmanned aerial vehicles to conduct twenty tree flights for illegal aerial reconnaissance.

The morale and psychological status of the Russian troops established in the temporarily controlled regions dramatically declined as a result of the considerable losses sustained during the war.

The command of the Russian 2nd Separate Motorized Rifle Brigade of the 2nd Army Corps reportedly issued an order not to pay stipends to Russian service members who are temporarily away, in particular, while receiving treatment, in order to enhance the brigade’s level of combat preparedness.

In the communities of Zaitseve, Bakhmut, Bakhmutske, Krasnohorivka, Vodiane, Bezimenne, and Novohryhorivka, the Ukrainian troops effectively resisted Russian attacks.

9 attacks were made by the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ aviation during the day; damage was done to 7 strongholds and locations where Russia’s soldiers and equipment were gathered, and 2 of its anti-aircraft missile system positions were destroyed.

Ukrainian units of artillery and missile forces have recently targeted command and control sites, which are locations where Russia’s combatants and equipment are gathered. The impacted region included the radio-electronic warfare complex, the “Zoopark” radar station, artillery pieces, and ammunition storage facilities.

On the temporarily occupied and previously freed Ukrainian territory, the Russian occupiers are suspected of committing up to two hundred brutal war crimes per day. There is still a significant risk of mines in the freed towns and villages since more than seventy thousand square kilometres across ten Ukrainian oblasts have been mined. The Ukrainian troops are taking action to quickly restore stability to the freed towns.
