Quote from Haidai: "Russia announced partial mobilisation only a week ago, but the first mobilised troops have already arrived at the front. In particular, the 1st Tank Regiment of the 2nd Motor Rifle Division of the 1st Guards Tank Army of the Russian Federation has received reinforcements.
They have received no training at all. Neither have those who have been forcibly mobilised in the occupied territories of Luhansk Oblast.
But there’s no good news for them. Only for us."
Details: Haidai recalled that President Zelenskyy said that "[Ukrainian forces] are moving forward and liberating our land" in his address on 27 September.

In addition, Ukrainian air defence forces struck down a Russian aircraft, 6 UAVs and a Kh-59 guided cruise missile.
Ukraine’s Rocket Forces and Artillery struck 12 areas where Russian military personnel, weapons and equipment were concentrated and 4 anti-aircraft systems, ammunition storage points and electronic warfare systems (in particular, a Zhitel communication jamming station).
Over the course of the past 24 hours, the Ukrainian Armed Forces repelled Russian attacks in the vicinity of Zaitseve, Maiorsk, Zalizne, Mykolaivka Druha, Pervomaiske, Pobieda, Novomykhailivka and Bezimenne.
