A bunch of Russians are Vacationing in Finland. The All Saints Day festivities there must be surprisingly popular.
Head of the International Affairs unit of the Finnish Border Guard came out to personally say this was false:


Those wondering about the Georgian border crossing would be advised to ask why none of the vehicles have Russian license plates and why all the signage is in the Latin Alphabet despite Russia and Georgia both not using that. Most curious, I say....

The Russians got Viktor Medvedchuk released whose a personal acquaintance of Puting family as well as a smattering of Officers including two Senior level ones that we know of. Also reportedly at least some of the Ukrainians are to remain in Turkey fir the duration of the hostilities.



Pentagon Signed a $2.2 million dollar contract to provide Ukraine with Switchblade 600 "Kamikaze" Drones.


North Korea States to the Media it never has and isn't planning on in the future, to supply Russia with Munitions.


Reportedly Some (at least sixteen reportedly) Detained Protestors are Being Issued Draft Summons While in Custody.

Yeah apparently Saudi Arabia helped broker the release of the ten foreign fighters of the Ukrainians.


This prisoner Exchange was separated for the most part it seems and Turkey was involved. President Zelensky commented on both exchanges in a Twitter Thread.


Apparently five of the Azov Commanders are the ones who are to remain in Turkey for the Wars duration.

Targeting war protesters for mobilization cannot possibly backfire.
Someone posted some Protestor stats. I tried hyperlinking it earlier but my phone wasn't cooperating.


Yoink!

On the note of equipment, after the Kharkov offensive there were reports that Ukraine had expended up to 40% of its stocks, which likely explains the recent aggressive push to get their Western allies to send tanks and other AFVs to them:


So far, they've only managed to get hold of some rather ancient but upgraded T-55s from Slovenia:


So far Germany is refusing to send Leopards:


The U.S. has also demurred on sending Abrams, citing the training and parts needed to operate them:


In the mean time, Ukraine is resorting to some...interesting solutions to their lack of equipment:

Voting Begins In the Russian Occupied Regions of Ukraine on the Referenda. It'll take place over the weekend, no doubt to ensure as many people can vote as possible in order to foster the Democratic process. (Twitter Thread Discussing It)


Odessa Has Been Targeted by Iranian-made Shahed Loitering Munitions. Reportedly Civilians Were Killed in the Attacks.


Anti-Tank Mines that can be Deployed by NATO MLRS Systems Shows Up in Ukrainian Possession. These mines were apparently produced by Germany and the United Kingdom who supposedly don't use them anymore.


Three of the Russian Tanks Lost Last July Were Of a More Rare T-72 Variant Like the Ones Used in the Russian Tank Biathlons. Two were reportedly destroyed with one captured by the Ukrainians.



Lucky him.
Russian Billionaire (and former owner of Chelsea FC) Roman Abramovich Helped With the Negotiations with the Saudi Monarchy that Led To the Release of the Foreign Fighter POW's. They even got a trip on his luxury plane (not yacht lol).

Good for him. He's gotten a lot of unfair flack for being Russian, even though he has made it clear he does not support the war.

More Details Reportedly on the Strike on Odessa by the Russian Forces Using Iranian Drones Yesterday.


Ukraine Downgraded ties with Iran over Supplying of Drones to Russia.


Iran has responded, According to Reuters:

Iran is planning "proportional action" in response to Ukraine's decision to downgrade diplomatic ties over the reported supply of Iranian drones to Russia, the Iranian foreign ministry spokesperson said on Saturday.

Also Iran both denies supplying drones to Russia while bragging they supplied drones to Russia.

Nasser Kanaani said Ukraine should "refrain from being influenced by third parties who seek to destroy relations between the two countries", a ministry statement said.

Kanaani said Ukraine's decision was "based on unconfirmed reports and resulted from a media hype by foreign parties".

He did not directly refer to drones. Iran has previously denied supplying drones to Russia, but the hardline daily Kayhan said on Saturday "hundreds of armed drones" have been sold.

"For a while now, Iranian drones have been carrying out operations in Ukraine's skies against NATO," said the newspaper, whose head is appointed by Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei.
