The DPR admits the escalation of the conflict in the Donbass into a "hot phase"

Kiev may begin preparations for a new offensive in Donbass, Ukrainian President Zelensky is convening a secret meeting of the National Security and Defense Council (NSDC). As they say in Donetsk, the conflict may turn into a "hot phase".


Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy sent Minister of Defense of the country Andriy Taran and Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Ruslan Khomchak to the JFO zone to familiarize themselves with the situation on the contact line in connection with the mass death of servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

In addition, a meeting of the NSDC is scheduled for February 19, which will be held behind closed doors. Most likely, it will discuss issues of resolving the situation in Donbass, taking into account the current situation there and the latest statements by Ukrainian politicians about the impossibility of implementing the Minsk agreements. It is not excluded that Kiev will begin or has already begun preparations for a new offensive.

At the same time, the DPR admits the escalation of the conflict into a "hot phase", given the numerous violations of the ceasefire on the demarcation line.

According to Ruslan Yakubov, head of the DPR office in the JCCC, there is a high probability that the conflict will develop into full-fledged military actions.

We have all the signs of an escalation along the line of contact. And if Ukraine does not recall its obligations in the near future, then it is possible that the conflict may develop into a hot phase.

- he said.

It is noted that recently, the frequency of attacks from the Ukrainian Armed Forces has increased significantly, as has the caliber of the weapons used. Shelling of settlements resumed.

Let us remind you that recently Kiev politicians began to declare the impossibility of fulfilling the Minsk agreements and some assistance that the United States would provide them. Ex-President of Ukraine Poroshenko on the eve called for the return of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to their previous positions, calling the truce a fiction.

                "... On December 5, the 43rd Army Corps tried to go on the offensive, but was unable to take advantage of the initial success of the 31st Infantry Division, the 296th Infantry Division reached the Upa River only after dark, being in an extremely emaciated state. I myself saw its regiments. ”In the area of ​​operations of the 29th motorized division, Russian troops, supported by tanks, attacked northeastern Venev. The danger threatening the flanks and rear of the 24th Panzer Corps, whose formations were located north of Tula and because of the 50-degree frost were deprived of the ability to move, questioned the expediency of further continuation of the offensive... The offensive would be possible only if the 4th Army advanced simultaneously with us and, moreover, successfully. Unfortunately, this was out of the question. Quite the opposite was the case. The help of the 4th Army was limited to the actions of a shock group consisting of two companies, which, after completing their task, returned to their original positions. This episode had no effect on the enemy operating against the 43rd Army Corps, the 4th Army went on the defensive!
                In the face of threats to my flanks and rear, and with the onset of incredibly cold weather, as a result of which the troops lost mobility, on the night of December 5-6, for the first time since the beginning of this war, I decided to end this isolated offensive and withdraw the units that were far advanced ...

                  Meanwhile, according to forecasters, the temperature in the Moscow region at the end of 1941 was not so abnormal. So, on November 4, it was minus 7 degrees. Having held at this mark for three days, it rose to zero. True, from November 11 to 13, the values ​​dropped to 15-18 degrees, but then until the end of November they stayed within minus ten. In December, the temperature generally did not exceed minus 20 ° C. Only in some places and for a short time did it drop to minus 28-30 degrees, which for Russia is within the normal range. Perhaps the basis for the legend of severe frosts was the winter of the previous 1940, when the January temperature reached minus 42,1 ° C. By the way, then many people said that such cold weather meant war.

    Here is the question: There was a "lull" (of course, relative). Everyone in the LPNR understood that shelling by the Armed Forces of Ukraine would resume, and that the admiration of the UKR generals with the bayraktar and tactics in Karabakh would still give ground for planning a spring-summer offensive. Everyone could not help but understand that it was necessary to take measures to strengthen their forward positions and field fortifications, because the calm was clearly preparing to strike. Consequently, it cannot be ruled out that, one way or another, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have accumulated a large amount of ammunition in the advanced artillery lines, that the advanced reconnaissance by the Armed Forces did not stop for a day, which, according to the statements of international observers, the Armed Forces tanks systematically disappear from their places of permanent deployment until the armistice are accumulating on the front line that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are conducting exercises with elements of breaking through the enemy's fortified positions, which have already been seen by UAV flights, similar to bayraktars over the Donbas.
    The question is: are the LDNR forces ready to repulse the now decisive offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine using shock drones that hit armored vehicles, Arta's positions and the positions of the troops? Is the air defense ready for attack UAVs and aircraft of the Armed Forces, which will not be able not to support the offensive, if it is nevertheless made decisive? Are you ready for active maneuvering, which the forward forces of Karabakh refused? Are the fortifications ready to save from massive shelling? Are the minefields ready? Are the operational plans for defense and offensive ready? Or is everyone waiting for the "North Wind" again, hoping for a chance, blaming the weather and mood?
    What has been said does not mean that the fighters and the command in the LPR are bad, not to humiliate someone, but somehow it will be very sorry that the "lull" did not give anything for the LPNR in the existing technical and tactical conditions for the purpose of strengthening the defense ...
    Of course, defense does not give victory, but, realizing the inequality of forces and means, the defenders were simply obliged to take exhaustive measures to firmly hold positions or maneuver actions.

      The forces are too unequal. Without direct entry into hostilities of the Russian Aerospace Forces, Donbass will not be able to hold out. To stop the offensive, it will be necessary to destroy all bridges, warehouses, communication centers and command posts in a hundred-kilometer zone west of Donetsk and Lugansk. And declare there a no-fly zone for Ukrainian aircraft. No other way.

    Nothing will happen, it will not go further than positional skirmishes. I would be cynical, but the Donbass, destroyed by the war, surrendered to Ukraine, like a dog's fifth leg. To liberate Donbass is to automatically take all residents to the boarding house and to restore the infrastructure upon ourselves. And the point is to spend money on those who do not see and do not want to be part of Ukraine - if you look objectively, it is really stupid and pointless. But to shoot and keep in good shape is a sacred thing. In addition, all the care for the Donbass is in Russia, for which Donbass has also become a suitcase without a handle, sucking a lot of energy and finances every year.

      Ukraine is no longer an independent player. The purpose of the offensive is not to return / capture Donbass, but to unleash a war similar to the Iranian-Iraqi one. Long, positional exhausting. This will all be accompanied by divisions of (Chinese) Polish and other East European volunteers. And then wait for the aggravation in Transnistria.

    I already wrote that with the coming to power of the "US Democrats", aggression against Russia in all directions will intensify.
    Democrats staged a coup in Ukraine (curated by Nuland) to drag Russia into a war with Ukraine. The base in Sevastopol "broke off" by them, now they decided to turn Ukraine into a NATO military training ground near the border with Russia.
    They are not inventing anything new, they will stupidly follow the "Georgian scenario", organize a provocation in the Donbass, and against the Crimea. using the Ukrainian army as "cannon fodder", and shouting to the whole world - Russia aggressively attacked Ukraine. And the whole West will chew "popcorn", admiring the slaughter of the Slavs, declaring sanctions on Russia. Clintons will scream live - know! when Russia "gouges" the Armed Forces of Ukraine, forcing Kiev to peace. Everything goes to this. Poroshenko and Zelensky, against their will, began to race to PR on the topic of Donbass. We have already received the go-ahead from the United States.

      "friendly bunch" Biden-Poroshenko. Poroshenko's interest in the beginning of hostilities is obvious. His strategy is to re-enter the presidency precisely at the expense of the war in Donbass.
      He perfectly understands that Zelensky has no prospects of returning Donbass, and he will come to the elections with the slogan - I will end the war in Donbass, and I will fulfill the terms of the Minsk Treaty, and grant autonomy.
      Therefore, he has become so active now, and under Trump he kept quiet. hi

    As an option ... Move the front line to the borders of the republics and call the UN peacekeepers. Recognize republics and ... endure sanctions. IMHO, even the EU will breathe a sigh of relief (although there will be a lot of screams and saliva).

    He perfectly understands that Zelensky has no prospects of returning Donbass, and he will come to the elections with the slogan - I will end the war in Donbass, and I will fulfill the terms of the Minsk Treaty, and grant autonomy.

    With such a slogan he will never go.

    Well, what a shame sometimes that there is no one to shut up this hog!
