(Reuters) - Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has warned Russian soldiers who shoot at Europe's largest nuclear power station or use it as a base to shoot from that they will become a "special target" for Ukrainian forces.

FIGHTING

* "Every Russian soldier who either shoots at the plant, or shoots using the plant as cover, must understand that he becomes a special target for our intelligence agents, for our special services, for our army," Zelenskiy said in an address on Saturday.

* The exiled mayor of Enerhodar, where the Zaporizhzhia plant is located, said on Telegram on Sunday the city had been shelled from the suburbs, causing civilian casualties. "On August 14, murderous provocations deliberately committed by the occupiers claimed another human life in Enerhodar.‼️ As a result of shelling in the first microdistrict, a man was killed," he wrote on Telegram. Local Russian-installed official Vladimir Rogov wrote on Telegram on Saturday that Ukrainian forces were shelling the plant.

* Natalia Humeniuk, spokesperson for Ukraine's southern military command, said Ukrainian forces on Saturday night shelled the Antonivskyi bridge over the Dnipro River, a route Russians use to supply weapons, ammunition and troops to the occupied Kherson region.

* Russia, in a daily briefing, said it had taken control of Udy, a village in the eastern Kharkiv region.

* Particularly heavy fighting has focused on the village of Pisky, near Donetsk Airport, the British Defence Ministry said in its daily intelligence bulletin on Twitter (NYSE:TWTR).

* Reuters could not confirm battlefield reports independently.

DIPLOMACY

* Any possible seizure of Russian assets by the United States will completely destroy Moscow's bilateral relations with Washington, TASS quoted the head of the North American Department at the Russian foreign ministry on Saturday as saying.

ECONOMY

* The U.N.-chartered ship Brave Commander will depart Ukraine for Ethiopia in the coming days after it finishes loading more than 23,000 metric tonnes of wheat in Pivdennyi, a U.N. official said. It will be the first humanitarian food aid cargo bound for Africa under the U.N.-brokered grains access deal.

* The first ship to leave Ukraine under a deal to resume grain exports from the country two weeks ago was approaching the Syrian port of Tartous on Sunday, two shipping sources said, after the vessel had been sailing with its transponder off.

* The first ship carrying Ukrainian wheat to be exported under the U.N.-brokered deal arrived in Istanbul on Sunday, the Joint Coordination Centre based in the Turkish city, said.

Alexov and tetyana you just happen to support an invasion of a free country and support a dictator who could not care less about his own people and have robbed your country for wealth these past year and given his friends all your ressources for their loyalty. You are just on the wrong side of history, because we will support ukraine until russia is thrown out and peace is restored….We are in this to the end…sorry…

Semen Alexovnot relevant to compare. Taliban attacked USA via al quaida. Western world just kicked taliban out to the hills where they vame from. We then tried to create a democracy and train an army of 250.000 men to fight taliban, we made and agreement with afgjanistan after 20 years to withdraw. But it seemed the there where no real fighting spirit in the army so that gave the country back to taliban. Ukranians on the other hand have great spirit and the only reason why we are not sending troops is out of respect for NATO otherwise we would be fighting alongside the ukrainian army if they wanted this…

As far as I know Ze was pleading “no fly zone” - you cowardly denied this. You won’t move your troops to Ukraine , again you are afraid of putin’s nuclear weapons. You just want Ukrainians to die in large numbers to fulfill the goals of Biden’s pack. In the war of attrition the winner is the one who has resolve , stamina and readiness to hardship and resources. Russians do have this more than fat and spoiled Europeans. Happy winter for them.

A traitor is a person who betray your own country for a foreign nation. In US we have as an example Trump had top secret CIA stolen documents to Sell for the right price.
