    Those are T-62M moved there in September, with most suggestions pointing towards a possible transfer to Syria (neither the Russian Army nor Russian Separatist Forces in Ukraine use the type). The satellite pictures are from October 13th.

    T-64s most of them according to our people. Going to Syria but just happen to be 18km from the Ukrainian border... seriously? Yes I know they have been parked up there for a while - not shifted to Syria but Poroshenko is trying to use it in addition to the Kerch Strait attack to re-raise awareness of our on going war (and course boost his profile ahead of next years elections).

    I am not a Poroshenko fan in particular. I will be voting Democratic Alliance but we have next to no chance of winning a Presidential election so have teamed up with the Mayor of Lviv (Sadovyi) to stand in the Presidential election. Still no chance basically. If it comes to a second round between Poroshenko and Yulia I will have to vote for Poroshenko.

    HMS Echo in Odessa yesterday. This may be part of a plan to try to transfer further Ukrainian naval assets to the Sea of Azov (via the Kerch Strait). It is said OSCE representatives may go on the Ukrainian vessels and they will accompany HMS Echo on a courtesy visit to Mariupol. Big respect to the RN for stepping up on this. It would be great to see HMS Queen Elizabeth in the Black Sea one day.

    The Ukrainian Orthodox Church is now independent again after 330+ yrs of having been 'absorbed' by the Muscovite Patriarchate. In 'hybrid war' terms this is a monumental victory.
