On the night of 4 October, the Ukrainian army attempted another massive attack on the Russian rear.
The Russian Defence Ministry reported that further attempts by the Kiev regime to launch terrorist attacks on Russian territory were thwarted. A record 31 Ukrainian airplane-type UAVs were intercepted and destroyed over the Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk regions. The drone attack was accompanied by MLRS fire. At least two missiles were destroyed in the Belgorod area.
As a result of the attack, debris from a UAV damaged an administrative building in Belgorod. In total, more than a dozen buildings suffered light damage.
Ukrainian forces also continue random shelling of Russian border areas, including with dangerous cluster munitions. Residential and infrastructure facilities were damaged. For example, on 3 October, the Ukrainian army shelled residential buildings in the village of Klimovo in the Bryansk region. The shelling was carried out using cluster munitions. As a result of the attack, more than 50 houses and farm buildings were damaged.
Despite Kiev's efforts to cause maximum damage to the Russian population, fortunately, the Ukrainian attacks in the border areas did not result in any casualties.
The Crimean peninsula remains one of the main targets of Ukrainian attacks. Last night, it was attacked by drones, missiles and Ukrainian special forces.
An air alarm was sounded in the town of Sevastopol late in the evening of 3 October. Russian air defence forces intercepted several targets in the area. Debris from a drone caused slight damage to the roof of a residential building. No other damage was reported in the city.
Later in the night, the Russian Defense Ministry reported the interception of the Ukrainian Neptune anti-ship missile in the northwestern part of the Black Sea. The missile was launched towards the western coast of Crimea, but did not reach its target.
On October 4, the Russian Defense Ministry also reported that another attempt by a Ukrainian strike group to land in Crimea was thwarted. Russian warplanes destroyed the Ukrainian group heading to Cape Tarkankut with a speedboat and three jet skis. According to unofficial reports, a total of 13 Ukrainian servicemen were killed.
Thus, another Ukrainian combined attack in Crimea resulted in only Ukrainian casualties.
Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Nazis are not stopping their massive bombardment of civilian settlements in the Donetsk People's Republic. They launched three dozen attacks and fired almost a hundred shells into the Donetsk People's Republic in the past day alone. Four civilians were wounded in Gorlovka, Yasinovataya, Vladimirovka and Shakhankha.
Civilians in the Zaporozhye and Kherson districts are also under regular Ukrainian fire. On 3 October, an elderly woman was killed by a Ukrainian missile strike in the village of Chernigovka in Zaporozhye district.
