Russian troops maintain the initiative militarily in almost all sectors of the Donbass front. Meanwhile the positional battles continue in the Kherson and Zaporozhie regions. Russian fighters are pushing Ukrainian troops on the outskirts of Ugledar, in Mariinka and Avdeevka west of Donetsk as well as on the northern front lines in the Svatovo-Kremennaya region.
Bakhmut remains the most difficult battlefield for the Ukrainian military.
In recent days, Wagner’s main efforts have been focused on advancing north of the city. Fighting is ongoing on the northern outskirts of Khromovo where the Ukrainian units are fiercely defending the last road used by the Ukrainian grouping in Bakhmut. Russian control of Khromovo will mark the complete closure of the trap.
Wagner fighters are expanding their control in the areas west of the city, which will secure the encirclement of the Ukrainian grouping in Bakhmut. Battles are ongoing on the outskirts of the town of Bogdanovka. Russian forces are yet to enter the settlement. Meanwhile, the battle for the town of Orekhovo-Vasilyevka broke out after Wagner forces broke through Ukrainian defense in the area. The dominant heights near the town reportedly came under Russian control. At the same time, Russian forces are fighting on the outskirts of Zaliznyansky.
In addition, Wagner units are approaching the last road to Bakhmut from the southern direction. On the southwestern outskirts, Russian forces took control of some sections of the road to Konstantinovka. The village of Krasnoe remains under Ukrainian control.
The Ukrainian command is trying to counterattack by transferring additional reserves to the area. A large Ukrainian grouping is reportedly concentrated in Chasov Yar, likely preparing for a large counterattack. It may be aimed to push Russian troops back from at least one of the flanks around Bakhmut and prevent Wagner forces from the operational encirclement of the city.
In the city itself, after Wagner fighters took control of the all the areas on the eastern bank of the Bakhmutka river, they crossed the river and launched battles in the central district of the city.
In the northern part of Bakhmut, Wagner assault units have already launched the mop up operation on the territory of the Artemovsky Metalworking Plant (AZOM). The plant has an extensive territory and underground utilities, where the fighting is already ongoing.
There are some tactical advances of Wagner fighters in the southern districts of the city. They are approaching the south-western quarters. The ruins of the monument to the Mig-5 located on the Chaikovky street are still under Ukrainian control.
The Ukrainian military finds itself in a critical situation and continue attempts to save the most trained units, evacuating from the city.
However, in the public field, Kiev does not give up the idea of counterattacking in the area of the almost completely encircled Bakhmut.
Maybe some bombs should drop on Chasov Yar, if they’re massing troops there, at least they can’t huddle together.
The amassing of troops indent necessity done I’m one area, plus you don’t want to bomb the concentrations too soon and deter larger buildup. Think of it like a net, and the UAF the fish. They keep swimming into the area the next as long as they see no major problems. If you start to close the net, some will flee and those not in the next will scatter. If you let the net fill you will have a bigger catch. Though you let the net fill too much and you’ll have difficulty retrieving the net, potentially losing the catch. It’s all about timing. But we’ll most likely see some missile strikes I’m addition to heavy artillery in coming hours and days. The Russians want a major grouping in order to inflict mass casualties. The UAF has no choice but to commit to this offensive for strategic, tactical and political reasons.

LOS INGLESES DICEN QUE RUSIA TIENE LOS CAÑONES GASTADOS Y CON MUY POCA MUNICION
ESO ME DIO MUCHA RISA !
chasiv yar was hit with a kinzhal missile right in the command and control bunker of the NATO directed UA forces taking out a large grouping of nato coordinators and their UA counterparts.
it’s been a few days so maybe the ukrainians have managed to dig down that far and check on survivors, my guess is they just moved on like they do whenever they lose troops and the survivors would be hitting the urine drinking stage about nowish.
ES UNALASTIMA QUE SEA ILEGAL O NO CONVENIENTE DERRIBAR LOS SATELITES DE LA OTAN POR QUE ESO INICIA EL MALDITO ARMAGEDEON
PERO LOS UKRONAZIS HACEN LO QUE LES ORDENAN GENERALES DE LA OTAN EN UN SUPERBUNKER EN POLONIA
NO ES EN UCRANIA DONDE ESTA EL MANDO SUPREMO DE ESOS UKRONAZIS !!
Even In her old days my grandmother advanced faster then that.
Its football seize progress and everytime they loose 23 soldiers. The wounded die too. Russia hardly have any kind of medical care.
Its true the Ukras are able to have a large amount of soldiers N.W. of Bakmut. None knows yet what they are ,eamt for. Itsd normal military procedure to concentrate troops and then use them.
By that the defence of Bakmut is not as descriebed by Wagners and the Ordinary troops at all. I just see the troops. I dont see whats next at all.
Thy could be waiting for the many incomming armed vehicles.
Russians try to do the same. Andropov and Tjernekov is main drivers for their many old tanks :) Could be the old armed vehicles from Rustica will e used for rehousing only.
Your grandmother advanced faster until stalingrad.
Then party was over.
History has a funny way of repeating napoleon.
Except here the shoe is on the other foot
RF are the invaders.
No, the armed forces of the failed Ukrainian CIA project invaded Donbas after the US overthrew the Ukrainian government in 2014 and the people of Donbas rejected the US-installed regime and their OUN muscle. Silly li’l Hasbaranik!
the panic and dumb claims escalated after hundreds of NATO officers were turned into strawberry jam in a bunker and Jens Stutterberg babbled and stammered after all his friends died painfully
the counterattack is good news for Russia. Ukraine should concentrate all its troops in the areas where the Russian military is at its strongest and has its biggest artillery advantage. If all goes well, the Ukrainians will suffer the worst casualties in their military history and all die along with the imbecilic US officers who trained them
Any counter attack by the Nazis will be of good propaganda value but little more. Russia will absorb it and keep pushing the slow grind. Looks like this will be the modus operandi for a while.
History : Germany( with HORSE DRAWN ARTILLERY ) in 1942 took ALL of Ukraine including Crimea in 28 DAYS
Something is WRONG ………………….VERY WRONG here
I hope my social worker let me use lap top more often—she more happy now with new mulatto boyfriend
Russia shouldn’t close the Bakhmut trap to soon let the AFU bring in more reinforcements and grind them down and finish any hope of a counterattack in the spring. 🇷🇺 🇷🇺 🇷🇺 🇷🇺
with creating similar encirclements at Advdiivka and trying to take Chasiv Yar into the encirclement, the Russians hope to make the crisis worse and attract more Ukrainian reserves into similar traps. The question is whether the battle is really large enough in scale and the Ukrainian reserves are really being drained to deal with it, or if Ukraine is creating false reports exaggerating the crisis, and actually accumulating forces for its southern offensive safely
all underground must be secured too. this will take some time especially with all the mines and industrial complexes. has kiev been using tunnel boring machines?
Greand Report, this workshop would be best as an anti Leo-Building-Drones
the gradual aim to degrade and demoralize UFA has succeeded… they are defending poorly, no offensive is possible. also amerikan and colonies leaders recognize realities and are now also facing popular opposition. A large Russian offensive in 2023 if organized will end ukraine as it was
I would worry that Russia’s offensives, which conserve men, are still not doing enough damage to Ukrainian manpower and that Ukraine doesn’t care and can accumulate forces in other regions for offensives. Regardless of reports they read, the Russians should at all times assume they are not killing enough Ukrainians fast enough, and be increasing their ammo, payload sizes and fragmentation as much as possible, and designing new weapons that get into trenches more effectively and kill everything in them
Now that you know the counterattack is coming, just as you knew in advance of their last counterattack, don’t act like it’s a surprise. Russia shouldn’t lose a single inch of territory gained now? And where are the reserves and the expected large Russian offensive? Why is this being dragged out?
because the “the expected large Russian offensive” only exists in the fantasy world of the western media spewing out rubbish readily absorbed by a respawn video game audience. In the real world the Russia military leadership has never spoken about a large offensive.
Will be a suicide mission , a massacre.
“Kiev hopes to land on da moon” and If the little koke kike in kiev gets enough…koke then no doubt he will!
Odessa, a Russian city since 1794 awaits liberation in the summer, if not before.
