While the front was stabilized in eastern Ukraine, and none of the warring sides claim any significant successes, Russian missiles provide Russian forces with some tactical advantage on the front lines in the southern regions of Ukraine.

On the evening of September 14, a missile strike damaged the Karachunovskaya dam and a pumping station on the Ingulets River, which caused water levels to rise by more than 2 meters flooding a number of districts in the city of Krivoy Rog.

On September 15, hydraulic structures in the region again came under attack. No sooner had the water left the streets of the city, as another Russian missile hit another dam in Iskrovka in the Kirovograd region.

According to official data, there were no casualties as a result of the flooding.

The purpose of the strikes was not to flood the streets of Krivoy Rog but to raise the water level in the Ingulets River downstream, where the front lines run, and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are trying to build pontoon bridges across the river.

On September 16, the local deputy head of the civil-military administration confirmed that the Ukrainian units found themselves in a tactical encirclement near the borders of the Kherson region, on the left bank of the Ingulets River.

As a result of the rising waters, it will be more difficult for the Ukrainian units deployed on the left bank in the area of Davydov Brod to retreat or transfer ammunition.

It was also reported that the Ukrainian military camp in Krivoy Rog was flooded. As a result, sending reinforcements from there to the front lines was interrupted.

The Ingulets spill played an important role in the ongoing battles in the southern regions of Ukraine. It delayed the offensive operations of the Ukrainian forces, which have been prepared by the Ukrainian military in recent weeks.

In the areas of Alexandrovka, Posad-Pokrovsky and Snigirevka artillery duels continue.

Near the village of Andreevka, the Ukrainian offensive has been stopped. Fighters of the Russian Aerospace Forces do not stop strikes on Ukrainian troops along the corridor from Andreevka to Sukhoi Stavok, where Ukrainian units found themselves in a tactical encirclement. Dozens of gravely wounded Ukrainian soldiers are evacuated from the area every day. It is reported that Ukrainian aviation is used in evacuation operations and that Russian forces do not prevent the removal of bodies.

Despite heavy losses, the Ukrainian military continues to transfer reserves to a bridgehead on the left bank of the river, apparently preparing for new offensives.
In the Olgino area, Ukrainian forces are trying to advance with infantry and tanks but units of Russian paratroopers, with the support of artillery and MLRS, continue to repel attacks.

I posted that dam being hit and flooded but why is there no mention of Zelensky,s limousine being hit /rammed by a civilian car whose driver is in hospital ? ,it seems to be widely reported in the USA .

I also notice Mr.Putin,s convoy had an attempted ambush and now several bodyguards have “disappeared “/removed by Russian Intelligence and an undercover investigation is under way -all suspects rounded up and questioned — I cant find more on this so cant confirm this 100 % ?

Why play this down -IF it is true ??–or is the US version just propaganda ?

It does not affect his popularity Mr.Putin has 80 % + approval.

I find it hard to believe Putin is still at 80%, he promises much but delivers little.

Clyde

Compared to the Krusty the Klown of Kiev who continued to push the failed Banderpite ethnic cleansing/forced indoctrination program in Donbas, and lost 20% of the territory of the state as a result, along with millions of refugee citizens and tens of thousands of dead soldiers. So who promised much and delivered little?

Ramses

Great time here! I had a meeting with the new generation among the refugees, I helped them learning new things at center that will help them significantly for the future. Multilingual, new understanding, upgraded. In comparison to russians that will be stuck, know nothing, ignorance, isolated with religious shit hole countries, free falling into third world country.

Dear friends, there is no need to fear the future any longer, for as Invicta-Lux, a divine being (and my dear friend) from the heavenly spheres, told me in a reply to one of my comments, they have sent their greatest warriors here to Earth to finish off the evil Snake People, and only a few days ago they killed the demonic Lizard Queen. Hmm, wonder who that could be? The rest of the wicked Snake People are now in any case dying and will soon be no more. All is now well with the world as Invicta-Lux and her brethren of the Divines are here to protect and guide Vladimir Putin and his trusted followers (the noble soldiers of SF, you know who you are) for as long as it takes for him and the brave Russian soldiers to cleanse the world of the wicked Snake/Lizard People and their whole demonic organization. For all who want to read Invicta-Lux’s original comment, you need to go back to the article, posted 2 days ago, with the picture of that nasty little clown wearing a green T-shirt, looking more pathetic than ever before.

I am not going to tell you how many of the new generation refugee Ukrainians I and friends have been in contact with the last 6 months. The rebuilding of Ukraine will be very very very quick and good. The future looks so good 😀.

The paranoia nutters bread they are, are at least willing to turn the key of the mental asylum themselves now to lock themselves up, their choice. Now they can watch the world Zombie walking on the spot looking out the window, or behind “the prison fenc” looking out abroad. Or when they turn from the window, they can Zombie watch tv with the dictator advise endless feeding them lies. The only countries available for them to travel to are shit hole countries so they can sink even further down in misery.

According to clyde Kiev was a feint, kharkiv was a feint, snake island and Odessa was a feint, Moskva was a feint, and soon kherson and the donbas are going to be feint. Soon clyde Will faint and fade away when all this special military failure crumbles. If you like russia so much why don t you go live there and live the west?

Pamfil Military Academy

Correct. It’s unbelievable how the russians loose continuously areas and still the great keyboard ‘patriots’ cheers the incompetence and/or sabotage of theirs political leaders. Just peoples who don’t check any daily war maps to see the catastrophe of the russian army. There will be no Severk or Slaviansk take in the coming months, that’s for sure. Strelkov was right from the beginning. Pamfil Military Academy also.

But you cannot found the victory just by bombing dams. To protect Crimea Russian MUST mobilize or it will too late . And general Winter is coming, yes, but it should protect ucrainians not russians. Why in the whole summer Russia just managed to expand marginally its holdings in Ukraine, while it should have been a decisive attack against what remained of ukros forces?

They went in with too few men,but now the game has changed,Russia is fighting Nato they need to treat it that way.

Vanya

So that means doing much of nothing but retreating? Literally nothing is being done to correct the situation, nothing.

Nobodyinparticular

The 85 regions will raise 1000 volunteers each to create a new force of 85,000 reinforcements, soon to be appearing on the scene. Incidentally, re mobilization, if it is politically problematic, then an alternative could be what might be termed industrial mobilization. At the outset Russia had a huge advantage in terms of equipment, yet that has now been narrowed – mass production of T14’s, Terminators, Kinzhal’s or whatever is required could regain it. If you make things for yourself it doesn’t really cost anything overall and it would have a long term result of improving the skills and abilities of the Russian workforce which would provide a long term benefit, in the same way you saw all kinds of innovation after WW2.

Crazycanuck

NOT GOING TO HAPPEN LOL.

Georgeous George

Mhmm? They used mainly T-72 hardly any T-90 and no Armatas. And Russia has many thousands T-72 in store.

Nobodyinparticular

At the start Ukraine was using T64’s, civilian cars and vans, old guns from WW1, now they have HIMARS, Humvees, armored troop carriers, Leopard tanks, they are catching up in the arms race, they aren’t more Ukrainians now but they are better equipped. Outgun them technologically again and so the balance alters, adding more troops would have the same effect, it’s just an idea for a possible alternative approach.

Crazycanuck

Because they only have a handfull of the new junk dufus,

What did you and the other Ukrotards think when the Russians rolled up 20% of the land mass of the failed Ukrainian CIA project and then killed tens of thousands of Ukrainian personell while millions fled the disaster as refugees?

Bobo

Be aware that much of what you see and hear online will be pure Western propaganda. Especially from the big Western media networks so ignore them and the lies they promote. Russia has many options open to her military and her Allies in the conflict areas. The Kiev regime is dependent on continuous supply’s of arms and munitions from the Western nato regime who in turn are depleting their own reserves of weapons and missiles. This leaves those countries vulnerable in the event that the conflict in Ukraine were to move to another level. Russia could and would immediately close all the Western arms supply lines and in turn destroy any and all possible threats to the motherland certainly from west Europe. Winter is just around the corner so let’s see how long Kiev and her nato mercenaries sit before they freeze like meat in a frezzer

coming from me it must be a surprise, but on paper, Russian plans havent been dump / stupid at all.

Given previous expierence/ expectation it all followed a clear logic.

The Problem has always been poor execution of plans, Trouble of Logistics and underestimating the Ukraine/ western reaction.

”Russian forces do not prevent the removal of bodies”

Unbelievable. Is the Russian military the fucking Red Cross or Salvation Army? They should be hitting the ukrops even when they are evacuating the wounded. These Russians are just such stupid Christards and that’s why they will lose.

We need to all understand that right now, Russia is losing this war, even Scott Ritter admitted to this.

Any why? Because, Billions of dollars of aid from the West and thousands of NATO troops in Ukraine are just too much for Russian 200,000 Troops to deal with.

Unless Russia sends more troops then Russia will lose in Ukraine.

We need to just come to terms with this and what you are seeing on the battlefield is Russia losing the war as it can’t take on the whole world in Ukraine with only a small amount of troops.

The funny thing is, that Russia can take on the US NATO vassal at the level that NATO is willing to fight right now. Scott Rigger did not say that the Russians are losing. They are not losing, they are continuing to eliminate the threat posed by the failed Ukrainian CIA project. There are so many things wrong in your post. The whole world is not fighting in the Ukraine. The nation states which are home to most of the world’s population are not hostile to Russia.
Thanks for playing.
