.: On Tuesday afternoon there was an air alarm throughout Ukraine.

According to the latest information from the Ukrainian General Staff, a total of 26 airstrikes and one rocket attack have been registered. "And there is still a risk that the enemy will launch rocket attacks on critical infrastructure facilities deep in the hinterland."

Update November 29, 4:05 p.m.:

The Ukrainian military has received the LRU long-range multiple rocket launchers promised by France for the Ukraine war.

This was announced by Kiev's Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov on Twitter.

This is currently the fourth example of such systems in the hands of the Ukrainian army.

Reznikov called the delivery a "result of friendship" between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy and French President Emmanuel Macron.

Ukraine war: Pope Francis names cruelest troops in Putin's army - wave of outrage in the Kremlin

Pope Francis caused an outcry in the Kremlin with an interview that also addressed the current situation in the Ukraine war.

In an interview with the US magazine


, the "Holy Father" described two units of Putin's army in particular as the most cruel of Russia's troops in the war with Ukraine.

“In general, perhaps the most cruel are those who are from Russia but do not belong to the Russian tradition, like the Chechens, the Buryats and so on.

Surely the one intruding is the Russian state.”

With his statements, the Pope probably triggered a wave of indignation in and around the Kremlin.

In particular, Lavrov spokeswoman Maria Zakharova, the spokeswoman for the Russian Foreign Ministry, strongly condemned Pope Francis' statements to the TASS news agency.

"It's not Russophobia anymore, it's a perversion on a level that I can't even name," said the 46-year-old.

Zakharova later added on her Telegram channel: "We are one family with Buryats, Chechens and other representatives of our multinational and multi-sectarian country."

Ukraine War: Russian troops continue to attack frontline in Donetsk region

Update from November 29, 2:50 p.m .:

According to their own statements, the Russian military is currently continuing to attack the Ukrainian troops on the front in the Donetsk region.

This emerges from the situation report by the Russian Ministry of Defense on the Ukraine war published in Moscow on Tuesday.

On the sector of the front in the Donetsk region fighting has been going on for months for the cities of Bakhmut and Avdiivka, which are defended by the Ukrainians.

"They're coming at us like zombies"

The Russian military listed surrounding places such as Verkhnokamianske, Andriivka and Vodyane, which had also been attacked from the air.

In this case, the Moscow data coincide with the reports of the Kiev general staff, which recorded massive Russian troop concentrations on these sectors in the Russia-Ukraine war.

However, the US Institute for War Studies (ISW) doubted that Russia was making any progress with its offensive at Bakhmut.

A little further north near the cities of Kupyansk and Lyman, Russian troops repelled Ukrainian attacks, according to Moscow.

That fits with Ukrainian statements that the Russians are on the defensive there.

Ukraine war current: air alert in Ukraine - Russia attacks with rockets

Update from November 29, 1:20 p.m .:

According to Ukraine, an air alarm has been triggered across the country.

This was announced by the military news portal of Ukraine


on Twitter.

"Stay in basements and follow the instructions of the local authorities," wrote the portal on the new development and current situation in the Ukraine war.

Today there were already Russian rocket attacks.

According to officials, the central Ukrainian city of Dnipro was hit by four Russian rockets.

The production facilities of a “private company” were badly damaged, informed the governor of the Dnipropetrovsk region, Valentyn Renichenko, on Telegram.

He did not provide any further information about the company.

A fire broke out, but was extinguished.

No one was killed or injured, Resnichenko wrote.

The city of Nikopol on the Dnipro River, further south, was also shelled.

Ukraine war: According to London, Russia tilts basic concept in Ukraine

Update from November 29, 11:15 a.m

.: After its devastating failures, Moscow is overturning its basic military-tactical concept in the Ukraine war.

The Ministry of Defense in London has now published this assessment of British secret services.

In the past three months, Putin's troops have not acted as tactical battalion groups (BTG) in their invasion, it said.

The high-intensity fighting over a wide area would have revealed several errors in the concept.

"The relatively small allocation of infantry to the BTG has often proved insufficient." In addition, the decentralized distribution of artillery did not allow Russia to exploit its quantitative advantage with this important weapon.

In addition, only a few commanders were allowed to use the model flexibly.

However, that should have been an advantage of the concept.

The BTG concept is a central pillar of Russian military doctrine in recent years.

Each tactical unit is equipped with infantry, anti-aircraft, artillery, logistics and reconnaissance units.

This should enable the units to fight independently with several types of weapons.

Attacks on civilians: Selenskyj accuses Moscow of destructiveness

Update from November 29, 6:16 a.m

.: According to the Kiev general staff, Russian soldiers continue to find “an inglorious death” in the Ukraine war.

A Russian unit in Luhansk lost around 70 percent of its members last week.

This information could not be independently verified.

In his recent video speech, Volodymyr Zelenskyy accused the attackers of destructiveness: "Well, what can you say about them?

This is the real essence of these random comrades who took over Russia,” said the Ukrainian president.

"After 20 years of rule, a large part of their state is as ruined as if there had been a war."

"They are capable of nothing but destruction," he added.

His country will defend itself with all means.

"Ukraine will never take orders from these comrades in Moscow."

Ukraine News: US experts report on new Kremlin plan

First report from November 27th

: Kiev/Washington – Yevgeny Prigozhin not only keeps the EU Parliament busy, but also the Kremlin.

The Russian oligarch, who is also known as "Putin's cook" because of his interim supply to the Kremlin kitchens, announced in September that he had founded the paramilitary "Wagner Group".

"Putin's cook" worries Moscow: Russia's military is said to be planning more paramilitaries

"Wagner" mercenaries have been deployed in many conflict regions for years, especially in Syria and African countries.

The group operated in secret for a long time.

In October, it opened an official headquarters in St. Petersburg.

Critics describe the group as Russian President Vladimir Putin's "shadow army" for foreign operations - the Kremlin denies any links.

"Wagner" mercenaries in the Ukraine war: Secret service reports on Russian counter-offensive

Russia's military now wants to counter Prigozhin's troops with additional paramilitaries.

The aim is to weaken Prigozhin's influence.

This is how the US Institute for War Studies (ISW) assessed it in its war situation analysis on Sunday (November 27).

The Russian military intelligence service GRU reported the day before that Armen Sarkissyan was appointed as the new administrator of prisons in Russian-occupied areas of Ukraine.

Yanukovych friend as a counter to Prigozhin?

"Private military company" planned

The Russian-Armenian businessman Sarkissyan is considered to be close to the Kremlin and wants to use his new post to set up a "private military company," it said.

He is also said to have ties to Viktor Yanukovych, the former pro-Russian President of Ukraine.

Yanukovych once ruled in an authoritarian manner.
