Attacks civilian infrastructure and civilian homes, violating International Humanitarian Law, laws and customs of war.
The enemy launched 3 missiles and 5 air strikes, carried out more than 15 MLRS attacks on military and civilian objects on the territory of Ukraine.
In the morning of September 30, the Russian occupiers committed another act of terrorism, launched a rocket attack on a convoy of civilian vehicles moving for humanitarian purposes through the territory of the Zaporizhzhia region. The strikes were made by S-300 air defence missiles. According to preliminary information, at least 25 people killed, and many more were injured.
In addition, the enemy continues to use Iranian-made Shahed-136 attack UAVs to destroy the civil infrastructure of cities.
More than 25 settlements were affected by enemy strikes. In particular, Kostyantynivka, Zaporizhzhya, Mykolaiv, Hulyaipole, Rydkodub, Bilohorivka, Novoandriyivka, Blahodativka and Myrolyubivka.
The situation in the Volyn and Polissya directions has not changed significantly.
In other directions, the enemy continues shelling populated areas with tanks and artillery of various types:
- in the Slobozhansk direction – in the areas of the settlements of Uda, Strilecha, Zelene, Neskuchne, Prystin and Kupyansk;
- in the Kramatorsk direction – in the areas of Bilohorivka, Verkhnokamianske, Blakytni Ozera settlements;
- in the Bakhmut direction – Soledar, Spirne, Bakhmutske, Bakhmut, Zayitseve and New York;

Tanks, mortars and barrel artillery shelled areas of more than thirty settlements along the contact line in the South Buh direction. Among them are Novohrihorivka, Partyzanske, Kiselivka, Blahodativka, Kalynivka, Visokopillya, Arkhanhelske, Osokorivka and Bila Krynytsia.
Partial mobilization continues in the Russian Federation. In the Khabarovsk Kray, officials responsible for selecting and preparing mobilization resources have established new corruption “tariffs”. Thus, a postponement of mobilization costs 100 thousand rubles, which is an almost unattainable amount for the majority of the local population.
The occupation command is trying to implement forced mobilization measures in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine. Cases of detention of local men of draft age have become more frequent in Kherson. After a superficial determination of suitability for military service, they are sent to equip units that are planned to be used in the area of hostilities. In Berdyansk, employees of some enterprises that remained working in the occupied territory were forcibly demobilized. In addition, reinforced units of the Russian guard arrived in the city to suppress the local population’s possible resistance.
Over the past day, units of the Defence Forces of Ukraine repelled enemy attacks in the areas of Mayorsk, Zaytseve, Odradivka and Bakhmutske settlements.
Aviation of the Defence Forces made 9 strikes. It was confirmed that one stronghold, three areas of concentration of weapons and military equipment, as well as five enemy anti-aircraft missile systems were hit. In addition, Ukrainian air defence units shot down one UAV.
Missile troops and artillery hit six command posts, thirteen areas of concentration of manpower, weapons, and military equipment, two warehouses with ammunition, one anti-aircraft missile complex, and four means of enemy missile troops and artillery.
We believe in the Armed Forces!
Glory to Ukraine!
