Tuesday, October 11, 2022 in Ukraine, did NOT begin with coffee . . . it began with another barrage of Russian ballistic missiles - and they're still coming in as you read this story, posted at 6:48 AM EDT here in the USA.
This morning, missiles hit infrastructure facilities of the Odessa region. Ukrainian air defense did not help, apparently totally suppressed by Russian Electronic Warfare (EW) systems.
Ukrainian social media channels are also talking about missiles over Kiev for yet another day.
Another salvo of Russian missiles have been fired from the Caspian Sea, and still more have been fired from inside Russia's Kursk Region.
AIR RAID raid sirens are sounding in the Sumy, Poltava, Kharkov, and Dnepropetrovsk regions of Ukraine.
EXPLOSIONS are taking place in Kramatorsk and Slavyansk, and even in the newly added region of Russia called the Donetsk region - as Russia hits Ukrainian forces that grabbed part of that region just last week.
In another recently added region of Russia, Luhansk, some hours ago the Russian Army, DPR & LPR forces launched a counteroffensive and recaptured the towns of Novosadove, Terny, Yampolivka and Tors'ke.
In a third recently added region of Russia, Zaporozhye, missiles are raining down on Ukrainian positions.

-- Kiev and Lviv without power right now.
a Ukrainian AN-124-100 heavy transport aircraft departed Entebbe, Uganda this morning and landed at Rzeszow-Jasieńka International Airport in Poland, which is the main air hub for military equipment, weapons and ammunition delivered to Armed Forces Ukraine (AFU).
According to open sources, Uganda's army has several dozen units of Soviet equipment, including T-72 and T-55 tanks, BMP-2, BTR-60, 122mm D-30 guns and Grad MLRS, as well as a stock of ammunition for them. In addition, T-90C tanks and BTR-80A armoured personnel carriers were supplied to Uganda from Russia.
A few months after the outbreak of hostilities, most of the AFU's artillery ammunition stocks began to run out, and many familiar Soviet vehicles were also needed, forcing Ukraine to seek new sources of supply from European states with Soviet-era equipment as well as exotic countries such as Pakistan.
This strange flight of a Ukrainian Ruslan from Uganda, a country with large stockpiles of Soviet armaments, to a Polish airfield, which is the main supply base for Ukraine in need of Soviet armaments, raises serious concerns about the possible involvement of Uganda in this conflict on the side of the AFU.
