Washington – Moscow – Kyiv: “Middle East”

The Kherson region, under the control of Russian forces, remained the focus of the field on Sunday, with a loyal official saying that Kyiv continues to mobilize its tanks and armored vehicles around them, and Moscow, for its part, announced that those were Ukrainian missiles had hit a dam in it and caused major damage, while revealing in Washington that Ukraine privately encouraged US indications of a willingness to negotiate after the State Department said Moscow was escalating the war and was not seriously interested in peace talks.
The Washington Post quoted sources as saying that the request by US officials is not intended to pressure Ukraine to come to the negotiating table; “It is a calculated attempt to ensure that Kyiv retains the support of other countries.”
The newspaper added that officials from the United States and Ukraine “have admitted that Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s refusal to hold talks with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin has raised concerns in parts of Europe, Africa and Latin America, where Regions are feeling the greatest impact of the war on food and fuel costs.” She quoted an unnamed US official as saying, “Fatigue with the fallout from the Ukrainian file is a reality for some of our partners.”
Zelenskyy signed a decree on Oct. 4 declaring that the prospects for Ukrainian talks with Putin were “zero,” but left the door open for talks with Russia.
While the National Security Council did not comment on the accuracy of the Washington Post report, a State Department spokesman said, “We have said it before and we will say it again: Actions speak louder than words.” whether Russia is ready to negotiate; It must stop its bombs and missiles and withdraw its troops from Ukraine.”
“The Kremlin continues to escalate this war,” he added. The Kremlin has shown no willingness to engage seriously in negotiations even before it begins its full-scale invasion of Ukraine.” The spokesman also referred to Zelenskyy’s statements last Friday, in which he said: “We are ready for peace ; For a just peace, as we have repeatedly said.”
“The world knows our position: respect for the charter of the United Nations, respect for our territorial integrity and respect for our people,” Zelenskyy said in his evening address to the Ukrainian people at the time. In parallel, also during a visit to Kyiv on Friday, US National Security Adviser Jake Sullivan said Washington’s support for Ukraine will remain “unwavering and unwavering” after Tuesday’s congressional elections.

Battle…
in The Field; Rescue services in the Moscow-occupied territories announced on Sunday that the “strategic Kakhovka Dam” in the Russian-controlled Kherson region was “damaged” by a Ukrainian attack, according to Russian news outlets, explaining that “six were HIMARS missiles launched; Air defense units shot down 5 of them and a missile hit one of the dam’s locks, damaging it.” RIA Novosti news agency quoted a local Moscow official as saying the damage was not “serious”. “Everything is under control,” official from the neighboring city of Novaya, Ruslan Agayev, told the agency. Major air raids were repelled. A rocket hit (the dam); But it didn’t do any serious damage.”
Early in the war, Moscow forces took control of the Kakhovka hydroelectric power station, which supplies water to Crimea in southern Ukraine. The Ukrainian president accused Russian forces of wanting to blow them up “to cause a devastating flood”.
“The flooding of the dam could trigger a catastrophe of enormous proportions,” he said, calling for an international mission to be deployed in his region.
In parallel, Kirill Strimosov, deputy head of the pro-Russian administration in the Kherson region, said on Sunday that the Ukrainian army is amassing a large number of tanks and armored vehicles on the outskirts of the region. “Many equipment units are being mobilized, with more and more armored vehicles and tanks,” Strimosov said in a video broadcast on his Telegram channel. He added that “the evacuation of residents of the left bank of the Dnipro River and other Russian regions continues… Citizens of the city can still freely exit the right bank.”
was Vladimir Saldo; On October 18, the acting pro-Russian governor of the Kherson region said that residents on the right bank of the Dnipro River would be evacuated to the left bank “due to the risk of flooding that could occur if the Ukrainian army used the (Kakhovka) hydroelectric power station .”
It is noteworthy that last Friday the Russian President publicly authorized the evacuation of civilians from parts of the Kherson region. This appeared to be the first time he had personally authorized the evacuations, despite Moscow having previously evicted residents from the area. Moscow had announced that the evacuation zone would also include a 15-kilometer-wide buffer zone on the west bank of the river.
Kherson is the only major city that Russia has controlled since the invasion began last February. His loss would be one of the greatest blows to Russian forces in the war. Pictures circulated on the Internet showing the main administration building inside, over which the Russian flag is no longer hoisted. Kyiv expressed concern, saying such signals “could be a Russian ploy to ambush Ukrainian forces.”
