Two Russian amphibious assault boats hit in Crimea during night attack

In the village of Chornomorske in the temporarily occupied Crimea, two Russian fast landing boats were hit. Instead, the Russia claims an alleged attack by Ukrainian drones on the night of November 10 on Crimea and the Tula region of the Russian Federation.

This was reported by the Main Intelligence Directorate.

The Defense Intelligence of Ukraine confirmed that as a result of a night operation in the temporarily occupied Crimea, the military hit small landing boats of the Russian Black Sea Fleet. The agency noted that these were boats of the 11770 project and added that the vessels were crewed and loaded with armored vehicles, including BTR-82.

"The aggressor state of Russia actively used small landing boats during the occupation of Snake Island to transfer military equipment and troops," the statement said.

Military expert tells about Russian panic in Kherson region

Director of the information and consulting company Defense Express Serhiy Zgurets noted that the Russian army is forced to transfer reserves to the left bank of the Dnipro River, and this weakens the enemy's actions in other areas.

He said this on the Espreso TV channel.

"Ukrainian forces do have areas that can be conditionally called bridgeheads on the left bank of the Dnipro River. This is a site near Antonivskyi Bridge, in the area of the railway and road bridge, and a second foothold near the village of Krynky, where the enemy was driven out. We are currently setting up logistical support from the right bank for our units operating on the left bank," explained Zgurets. 

According to the military expert, the road controlled by Ukrainian forces from the right bank goes close to difficult areas along the Dnipro River.

"There is an even more powerful rocky road controlled by the enemy. Control over the roads depends on the forces and means. The Ukrainian Armed Forces are effectively using drones and artillery. The enemy is already panicking, moving some units from the Zaporizhzhia direction to the area connected with the actions of our forces on the left bank. The main goal of the Defense Forces at this stage is to introduce instability into the enemy's actions, forcing Russian army to pull out its reserves. And this weakens the enemy's actions in other areas," Zgurets stressed.

Exercises in the UK have been completed by 30,000 Ukrainian servicemen

British Prime Minister Rishi Sunak wrote about this in his column for Ukrainian media.

"This week the latest group of Ukrainian recruits to complete their training in the UK boarded their transports and headed home, many destined for the front line in the east and south. As always, their route was lined with British soldiers applauding their Ukrainian brothers and sisters – because they know that you are fighting for values that we share," he said.

"30,000 Ukrainian troops have now completed their training in Britain – artillery crews, marines, engineers, combat medics and more. That’s in addition to the 22,000 Ukrainian forces we trained before the 2022 invasion," the British prime minister added.

Ukraine reaches agreement to return from Russia a Mariupol teen, who was abducted by Russian forces and drafted into Russian army

Ukraine’s Human Rights Commissioner Dmytro Lubinets wrote about this on Telegram. 

According to him, there are currently agreements on the boy's return to Ukraine so that he can be reunited with his sister. 

"I ask everyone to calm down, and most importantly, not to spread unverified information. Such publicity harms the return process," the ombudsman stressed. 

Lubinets also published a statement written by the boy. 

"I, Bohdan Ruslanovych Yermokhin, refuse to provide me with a rented apartment as an orphan at the address: (...) in connection with my departure to Ukraine," reads the statement, which is dated November 8. 

Lubinets added that the details of the work on the boy's return will be made public when he is on the territory of Ukraine. 

Lithuania donates anti-drone equipment, generators to Ukraine

This was reported by the press service of the Lithuanian Ministry of Defense.

"Lithuania sends Ukraine technologies that help on the modern battlefield. It is important to understand that today's war requires modern technologies, such as anti-drones or other modern equipment," said Minister of National Defense Arvydas Anušauskas.

"And the generators are being sent with the thought of the inexorable approach of winter, which is likely to be difficult," he added.

Ukrainian aviation carries out 11 strikes against Russian enemy

This was reported by the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

During the day, Ukrainian aviation carried out 11 strikes on the areas of concentration of enemy personnel, weapons and military equipment. The air defense also destroyed 5 Shahed-136/131 strike UAVs and one Kh-59 guided missile.

Missile troops destroyed 8 artillery pieces, a command post, 3 areas of concentration of personnel, weapons and military equipment, an air defense system and 4 Russian electronic warfare stations.

Ukrainian soldiers destroyed about 10,000 Russian troops in a month of fighting around Avdiivka

Valeriy Zaluzhnyi wrote about this on Telegram.

"It's been a month since the enemy started actively storming Avdiivka. A month of fierce battles, endurance, and victory of our defenders who continue to heroically hold the defense," the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine wrote.

According to Zaluzhnyi, Ukrainian soldiers destroyed more than 100 enemy tanks, 250 other armored vehicles, about 50 artillery systems and 7 Su-25 aircraft over the month. Total Russian losses in manpower amounted to about 10,000 people
