Russia plans to attack Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant next, says Zelenskyy

Russians are planning to attack the Kakhovka hydroelectric power plant, the Ukrainian president has said in his nightly address.

Volodymyr Zelenskyy called on the world to move quickly to prevent a disaster.

"According to our information, the aggregates and dam of the Kakhovka HPP were mined by Russian terrorists," he said in his nightly address to Ukraine.

"Now everyone in the world must act powerfully and quickly to prevent a new Russian terrorist attack. Destroying the dam would mean a large-scale disaster."

He added: "We must now all together - all Europeans, all world leaders, all international organizations - make it clear to the terrorist state that such a terrorist attack on the Kakhovka HPP will mean exactly the same as the use of weapons of mass destruction.

"The consequences for Russia should be corresponding."

He has also called on Switzerland to not remain neutral in the conflict, following talks with the President of Switzerland who arrived in Kyiv today.

"We also discussed the issue of compensation for damages caused to Ukraine by Russian terror. I am grateful that Russian assets worth $6.5 billion have already been frozen.

"This work must be continued.

"And this is something in which Switzerland must not remain morally neutral either.

"The possibilities of Switzerland to help with digitization in Ukraine and restoration of telecommunications systems in the liberated territories were discussed separately and substantively."

Russia fails to attend UN meeting on human rights amid concern about 'state-developed poisons'

Russia has failed to attend a UN committee meeting examining the human rights situation in the country.

Russia was removed from the UN Human Rights Council earlier this year, following its invasion of Ukraine.

Experts from the United Nations Human Rights Committee (OHCHR) had been due to come face to face with the Russian delegates at a public meeting over two days but tomorrow's meeting has now been cancelled.

"I regret that the Russian Federation hasn’t sent a delegation to respond,” said Marcia VJ Kran of Canada, a member of the body, which consists of 18 independent experts who monitor implementation of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights by state parties.

“We observe a disturbing trend of legal action against politicians who criticise the government," said Kran.

"We also have a serious concern about the use of sophisticated, state-developed poisons to silence, punish and kill at least a dozen prominent dissidents, opposition leaders and activists in the past decade."

Beth Rigby Interviews: Former Russian diplomat who defected at the start of the war

The West needs to stop giving "concessions" to Vladimir Putin, a former Russian diplomat who defected at the start of the war has told Sky News.

Boris Bondarev, who spoke to Sky's political editor Beth Rigby, said: "This nuclear game, so you know, first of all it's a psychological game it's like any blackmail. So, if you're confronted with blackmail, we have two options, either you surrender to this blackmailer, and you do whatever he wants from you.

"And you must understand that every time you give him some concessions, he will be emboldened and he will ask, he will demand for more and more and more, or you confront him and I think that will be the right thing to do, to confront him.

"Not to say we don't want escalation, but to tell him that if he wants this escalation, so be it."

When asked if Putin would resort to using nuclear weapons, he said: "Well, technically, I think yes. He can order to use them, and I don't think that there will be many generals or other military officers who say that 'no, we would not execute these orders' because it is like suicide or a war crime."

But he said Putin "already thinks he is waging the Third World War - to him it is about reshaping the map of the political world".

"He believes that he has too little influence on the map, too little power on the map that he is entitled to," he added.

"But also we must understand very clearly that Putin and Russia are two different things. When Putin says that something is threatening Russia's interests or Russia's security he means only himself."

Beth Rigby Interviews will air tomorrow night and over the weekend.

UK sanctions Iran over supply of drones to Russia

The UK has officially sanctioned Iran for supplying Russia with Iranian-produced drones that were used to attack Ukraine just a few days ago.

The plans for sanctions were announced earlier today.

Among the three individuals being sanctioned is military officer Seyed Hojjatollah Qureishi, seen as the key negotiator in the drone deal.

Major General Mohammad Hossein Bagheri – the chairman of the armed forces general staff – and Brigadier General Saeed Aghajani – the head of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps – have also been sanctioned.

All three are subject to an asset freeze and a travel ban.

Shahed Aviation Industries – the Iranian manufacturer of the Shahed drones which have been used by Russia during its illegal invasion of Ukraine. Shahed Aviation Industries is subject to an asset freeze.

Foreign secretary James Cleverly said: "Iran’s support for Putin’s brutal and illegal war against Ukraine is deplorable. Today we are sanctioning those who have supplied the drones used by Russia to target Ukrainian civilians. This is clear evidence of Iran’s destabilising role in global security."

He said procuring these weapons shows Russia is turning to countries, such as Iran, out of desperation.

Open-source evidence has shown Russia’s own defence company and drone producer Kronshtadt has struggled to maintain production since they were sanctioned (24 March 2022), with fridges and dishwashers being cannibalised in order to create military equipment, and Soviet-era tanks sent to the front line as they strain to maintain their military equipment.

Putin critic says he could now be facing up to 30 years in prison

Jailed Russian opposition politician Alexei Navalny said authorities have opened a new criminal case against him for promoting terrorism and extremism, potentially more than doubling his sentence.

Mr Navalny, the most prominent domestic critic of President Vladimir Putin, is already serving prison terms totalling more than 11 years for fraud, contempt of court and parole violations, all of which he rejects as trumped-up charges intended to silence him.

"I am a genius of the underworld. Professor Moriarty is no match for me," he said sarcastically in a Twitter post, comparing himself to the nemesis of Sherlock Holmes.

"You all thought I had been isolated in prison for two years, but it turns out I was actively committing crimes. Luckily, the Investigative Committee was vigilant and didn't miss a thing."

Mr Navalny said his lawyers estimated he could now face a cumulative sentence of around 30 years.

There was no immediate official confirmation of the new case from the Investigative Committee.

Flight tracking websites reveal more about interaction between RAF plane and Russian fighter jets

By Jack Taylor, data and forensics journalist

After a Russian jet released a missile "in the vicinity of" a Royal Air Force plane flying over the Black Sea on 29 September, flight tracking websites can reveal more about what happened that day.

The RAF Rivet Joint, a surveillance aircraft, first entered the airspace over the Black Sea at around 2.45pm UK time.

It then performed its routine patrol of the Black Sea, before flying back to the UK just after 5.30pm.

It was during this time that two Russian SU-27s are likely to have “interacted with” the flight, with one releasing a missile "in the vicinity of the flight". The Russian ministry of defence has called this a “technical malfunction” of the Russian jet.

The Rivet Joint wasn’t the only surveillance flight in the area at the time. A US Air Force Global Hawk, which is operated remotely and flies at high altitudes, had been patrolling the same area of the Black Sea for hours.

The Russian Navy’s Black Sea Fleet operate in the area. Whilst the details of the flights have not been released it is likely they were gathering intelligence on something out at sea.

Western-supplied weapons are finding their way onto black market, Russia claims

Russia has claimed Western-supplied weapons to Ukraine are finding their way onto the black market and then into the hands of extremist and criminal groups in the Middle East, central Africa and Asia.

Maria Zakharova, Russia's foreign ministry spokeswoman, said NATO members have in total sent at least 700 artillery systems, 80,000 missile systems, 800,000 artillery shells and 90 million rounds of ammunition.

"A considerable part of these weapons have already entered, or will soon enter, the black market," Ms Zakharova told reporters in Moscow.

"Now the world community is facing this."

Ms Zakharova did not say what evidence her assertion was based on.

"The NATO military cargos are ending up in the hands of terrorists, extremists and criminal groups in the Middle East, central Africa and southeast Asia," Ms Zakharova added.

Russia has long warned that weapons destined for Ukraine could find their way into the hands of criminals, though without providing details of where the weapons might be ending up.

Western leaders say they want to help Ukraine defeat Russia, though US President Joe Biden has sought to prevent a direct NATO-Russia confrontation.
