The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine reports that the 120th Territorial Defense Brigade (from Vinnitsa) is now in the Kyiv region and is defending the border – official telegram channel : https://t.me/ministry_of_defense_ua/3447

Andreas

Sorry, but I will add more map improvements:
1) Add flag of the Operational Command “North” to Chernihiv
2) Add flag of the Operational-Tactical Group “Sumy” to the city of Sumy (This command was separated from Operational Command “North” in April-2022 and exists to this day, proof: https://www.facebook.com/otusumy)

Andreas

3) Move the 119th and 117th brigades of the territorial defense of Chernihiv and Sumy regions to the border, as in the western regions of Ukraine.
4) Add to https://militaryland.net/ukraine/armed-forces/ 67-SMBr of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Large Ukrainian telegram channels showed photos from the training of one of the mech. battalions of this brigade. I can find them if needed.

INEXORABLE

November is the by far worst month concerning losses in personnel. There is also a considerable down tick in equipment lost.
Russia stopped using aircrafts and helicopters.
Ukraine reports shooting down of 285 cruise missiles in the last two months, 246 in the 7 befor.
Numbers:

Вертолеты, такие как ка-52 и ми-28, продолжают активно использовать, особенно ночью для охоты на технику. Штурмовики су-25 работают в окрестностях бахмута

So RU has lost round 30K troops since beginning of October, in battles south and north of Bakhmut, must agree with ISW — Russia has learned nothing; repeating the mistakes from summer when continuous attacks broke the back of the RU army, forcing Putin’s panicky choice to draft 300K; now RU is wasting those with impress speed – soon again RU shall lack bodies facilitating another Ukr. offensive.

They will keep mobilizing. Russia is going down the ‘totaler krieg’ path. There are two questions left: 1) can ukraine still win anyways?, which is a function of western support and 2) whole long can russia handle total war? This way or the other ukraine will win in the end.

Putin clearly studying Stalin. Numbers on foot not any more quality in itself.

  1. Modern weapons far better, than what Stalin had.
  2. Thus lot less important, also lot less effective, to throw in — large numbers of ill to not at all prepared soldiers today.

Don’t think, total war strategy — works for Russia. It neither can arm ’em, well enough nor train ’em well enough. Thus they’ll die too rapidly.

Ukr losses a very high too, even according to Ursula Van def Leyden. I don’t understand why it is a taboo subject . Ukr sends a lot of reinforcements to Bakhmut, mostly new recruits without formation. Also munitions begin to miss for western artillery.

Ua report shelling in zahirne for the second consecutive day.

Small advance in direction to polohy? And myrne is free?
