Russia expanded targets for missile strikes, Yelenovskaya colony with Azov residents again under fire: military news 18 September

Today is the 207th day since the beginning of the war. 

According to operational information General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine as of the morning of September 18:

  • The enemy launched 6 missile and 28 air strikes, carried out more than 90 attacks with MLRS on military and civilian targets on the territory of Ukraine. The infrastructure of more than 30 settlements suffered.
  • The Armed Forces of Ukraine repelled enemy attacks in the areas of the settlements of Mikhailovka Vtoraya, Veselaya Dolina, Odradovka, Maryinka, Novomikhailovka and Pravdino.
  • Ukrainian aviation hit 13 areas of concentration of enemy manpower and equipment and 3 positions of anti-aircraft missile systems.
  • Rocket troops and artillery inflicted fire damage on more than two hundred enemy targets. Among them are 12 command posts, warehouses of ammunition and fuel and lubricants, artillery positions and areas of concentration of personnel and military equipment.

Armed Forces of Ukraine may encircle Russian troops around Liman

Analysts from the US Institute of War claim that the enemy is conducting unsuccessful counter-offensives in the Donbass and is losing combat power in the south. 

Meanwhile, Ukrainian forces continue to occupy positions northwest and southwest of Liman, around which Russian troops are threatened with encirclement. Further Ukrainian advance to the east along the northern bank of the Seversky Donets could render Russian positions around the Liman incapacitated and open approaches to Lisichansk and finally to Severodonetsk.

In particular, according to analysts, this may be indicated by the raising of the Ukrainian flag over Shchurov, which is located 6 km from Liman. It is possible that the Armed Forces of Ukraine could advance 8 km from Studenki. The battles for Aleksandrovka and Yarovoe continue.

Analysts also draw attention to reports that the village of Dvorichna, 17 km from Kupyansk, came under enemy fire. It is assumed that Ukrainian fighters are preparing for another counterattack in this area.

Russia has expanded targets for destruction

Russia has expanded the targets on which it is ready to launch missile strikes.

This is stated in the summary of British intelligence Twitter.

Since February 24, 2022, the Russians have fired several thousand long-range missiles into Ukraine. However, over the past seven days, the Russian Federation has expanded the targets for attacks on civilian infrastructure - even where the occupiers do not see immediate military consequences.

"Faced with setbacks on the front lines, Russia has likely expanded the targets it is prepared to strike in an attempt to directly undermine the morale of the Ukrainian people," the intelligence summary said.
