THE SAYS - But what holds sway these days is concern over the Kakhovska dam, which both Russians and Ukrainians claim could be hit by the enemy. The prime minister of Kiev, Denys Shmyhal, addresses the UN: “We ask the United Nations, the EU and other organizations to organize an international observation mission from Kakhovka. International experts must arrive immediately (on site), as well as Ukrainian personnel”. While, on Twitter, the head of the bureau, Andriy Yermak, threatens to 'hit even harder' in the event of an attack on the dam: 'Russian terrorists are dying. Nuclear blackmail doesn't work, now they are trying to scare everyone by blowing up the Kakhovska hydroelectric power station. Their goal is for us to negotiate on their terms. But they won't make it. Ukraine will not succumb to a coerced peace. There is a right answer to blackmail: tougher sanctions, de-occupation of territories, more weapons and an even tougher stance on every Russian crime. They won't break us. We will strike even harder.'

ZELENSKY'S WORDS - Zelensky signed a decree on the voluntary enrollment of women in certain professional categories of the army. And, in the usual evening video, he updates the population on the situation on the ground: 'Hostilities continue in eastern and southern Ukraine. Our Armed Forces maintain the initiative. I would like to commend the fighters of the 25th Separate Airborne Brigade, the 59th Separate Motorized Infantry Brigade named after Yakov Handziuk and the 35th Separate Marine Brigade named after Rear Admiral Mykhailo Ostrogradskyi for their skillful and thoughtful actions to destroy the enemy. Thanks also to the soldiers of the 60th separate infantry brigade, whose units are performing well in the Kherson region. Since the beginning of October alone, the fighters have captured more than 30 units of Russian armored vehicles, a thousand tank shells and three Hyacinth cannons. All these weapons will definitely help liberate our land. Glory to Ukraine!” So he launches new accusations against Moscow: “The enemy is doing everything to slow down our food exports. I believe that with these actions Russia is absolutely deliberately fueling the food crisis so that it becomes as acute as it was in the first half of this year: today more than 150 ships are in line to fulfill contractual obligations for the supply of our agricultural products . This is an artificial tail. It only arose because Russia deliberately delayed the passage of ships.'

ASSETS SEIZED IN UKRAINE - Moscow Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu had a telephone conversation with the Pentagon. According to the first, 'issues of international security and the situation in Ukraine were discussed'. In a note from the Pentagon, however, it is noted that Defense Secretary Lloyd Austin 'emphasised the importance of maintaining lines of communication in the context of the war in Ukraine'. An appeal for de-escalation comes from Beijing's deputy ambassador to the UN Geng Shuang, during the Security Council meeting. The diplomat asks the parties to 'exercise restraint and avoid actions that lead the conflict to further escalation. Peace is the solution to the humanitarian crisis in Ukraine”. Meanwhile, the European Council has given a mandate to the European Commission to 'study the proposals' to use the state funds seized from Russia in the reconstruction of Ukraine.

IRANIAN DRONES - Great Britain, France and Germany have asked for a UN investigation into the hypothesis that Russia is using drones of Iranian origin in the conflict in Ukraine. The same request came from Washington. But Vassily Nebenzia, Russian ambassador to the United Nations, considers the only hypothesis 'outrageous' and replies: 'We expect the UN to reject the request for an investigation into Iranian drones'. Otherwise, he assures 'we will reconsider the entire package of relations with the UN Secretariat which we could no longer define as impartial'.
