  • Russia launched several attacks against kyiv early Sunday, November 19, for the second night in a row, the military administration of the Ukrainian capital said. According to Serhi Popko, head of the city’s military administration, Ukrainian air defense systems shot down around ten Iranian-made Shahed drones in the capital and its surroundings.
  • The Ukrainian general staff reports incessant attempts to encircle Avdiïvka. In its daily activity report published on Sunday at 6 a.m., the Ukrainian General Staff declared that its army firmly held its positions, inflicting significant losses on the Russian army, and said it had repelled 26 attacks in the vicinity of Keramik, from Novobakhmoutivka, Stepove and Avdiïvka.
  • Ukraine said on Sunday it had repelled the Russian army “from 3 to 8 kilometers” deep on the left bank of the Dnieper occupied by the Moscow army, the first numerical estimate of the advance of kyiv’s troops in this area, after months of disappointing counter-offensive.
  • Former Russian pro-war blogger Igor Girkin declares, from prison, his candidacy for the 2024 Russian presidential election. Before his arrest in July 2023, Igor Girkin targeted the military and therefore, de facto, political hierarchy, which he accused of not leading the Russian offensive in Ukraine effectively.
  • Russian air defense systems destroyed a drone, launched by Ukraine, which was heading towards Moscowdeclared the mayor of the Russian capital early on Sunday.
  • Hundreds of people demonstrated in kyiv on Saturday against corruption demanding the reallocation of public funds to the army. On some signs, we could read: “We need drones, not stadiums. »
  • For Joe Biden, supporting Ukraine allows the United States to avoid going to war. In a column published in the Washington Post, the president states that, “If we back away from today’s challenges, the risk of conflict could spread, and the costs of resolving them will only increase. (…) This belief is the basis of my approach to supporting the Ukrainian people (…) against the brutal war of (Vladimir) Poutine “.
