Russia Reinforces Kherson, Ukraine Evacuating Nikolaev, Shoigu Warns of Ukraine Dirty Bomb

Very different narratives about Kherson circulating. For the moment Alexander thinks the Russians may be digging in to the Kherson area, or even planning an offensive of their own. (Mayor of Nikolaev has advised all citizens to leave. This has not been reported by the Western media.) Yesterday Russia cut off internet in Kherson city.

Ukrainian offensive thus far has consisted of relatively small forces. Perhaps over next week larger forces will arrive.  Or perhaps their goal is to cause resupply problems for the Russians so that they will pull back without fighting. Russian commander has not ruled out the possibility of a pull back.

Missiles still being fired at  Ukraine.Considerably damage being done, beginning to affect Ukrainian railway system.

Directly after meeting with Ben Wallace, Austin contacted Shoigu. Russians now saying they fear Ukraine will use a dirty bomb. Shoigu in touch with France, Turkey Defense Ministers. Could evacuations be related to this? A developing story.

Turkey has relaxed its restrictions on the movement of Russian submarines through the Black Sea via the Dardanelles.

Western powers now have massive added burden of keeping Ukraine going economically.

Steady cranking up of actions on the part of western powers which the Chinese would see as hostile. Why be surprised if the Chinese start to push back? Is it surprising that politicians friendly to the west are being replaced with those with a more skeptical view? Western politicians do not seem to understand the consequence of their actions.

    MOSCOW, October 23. /TASS/. Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu has told his British counterpart, Ben Wallace, that Ukraine’s provocations with the use of a ‘dirty bomb’ are possible, the Russian defense ministry said on Sunday after their telephone conversation.

    “Telephone talks between Russian Defense Minister Army General Sergey Shoigu and UK Secretary of State for Defense Ben Wallace were held on October 23, 2022. They discussed the situation in Ukraine,” it said, adding that the Russian minister informed his British counterpart about Russia’s concerns over Ukraine’s possible provocations with the use of a dirty bomb.
