Ukrainian troops on the Melovoe-Starobelsk line were thrown back tens of kilometers from the borders of Russia

There are reports coming from the Luhansk People's Republic that Ukrainian armed formations have finally been pushed back from the Russian state border in the direction of Markovka-Kamenka-Starobilsk for tens of kilometers. The same direction is often called the Melovoe-Starobelsk line.


Recall that Melovoe is a village that is closely adjacent to the Russian Chertkovo (Rostov region) and which has been controlled by Ukrainian troops in recent years. Previously, the main traffic to the Russian south went through Chertkovo, and trains, including passenger trains, went in several sections across Ukrainian territory, where provocations were not ruled out. For some time now, a new railway section has been built in Russia at the junction of the Voronezh and Rostov regions.

Success in this direction made it possible to push the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the national battalions away from the borders of three regions of Russia at once - the Voronezh, Rostov and Belgorod regions. At the same time, the Russian troops manage to carry out a wider coverage of Kharkov, where a rather impressive grouping of Ukrainian troops settled in, hiding behind civilians. At the same time, the Kharkiv grouping of Ukrainian troops, after the city of Izyum came under the control of Russian troops, had no ways of communication with a large grouping of troops in the Donbass, which found itself in a dense encirclement.

Pushing Ukrainian national battalions away from Russia's borders reduces the risk of shelling for Russian border areas.



Military installations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were destroyed, from the territory of which Ukrainian troops and nationalist formations tried to carry out shelling of Russian territory, as well as areas of the Luhansk region controlled by the NM of the LPR.

    Well, yes. This must be done primarily as part of a general offensive.

      Right! A cornered rat can attack. It was still not enough for the Nazis to be able to launch some kind of rockets into the territory of Russia.

        National Battalions in 2014
        there were about 2500 people.
        59 battalions at the time of coordination and manning.
        Give a request - I will give a list with idiotic names and quantitative composition.
        Lies on the Internet.

        As far as I understand, the current confrontation
        to radical movements
        has nothing to do with the word "absolutely".

        I believe that the civilian population in Mariupol
        won't come out on its own.
        Like Leningraders in the blockade.
        And I understand them.

        If you have other facts, I will be glad to voice them.
        But 2 and a half thousand so-called "fascists" cannot
        hold hostage 445 (four hundred forty-five) thousand
        civilian population.
        They simply cannot.
        So we listen to you.

      Better late than never. After all, it was from these positions that the Armed Forces of Ukraine attacked the airfield in Millerovo. Now, thank God, they will have less opportunity to strike at our territory.

    It is not enough to encircle, it is necessary to deprive even the minimal opportunity to receive reinforcements, or even try to make a breakthrough.

      Thrifty. IMHO this is not enough. I am sure that there are enough people left in Ukraine who sympathize with Russia. But they do not express their views. Why? Because there is no confidence in their own safety. Russia has declared that it will not occupy Ukraine. Moreover, she entered into negotiations with Zelensky's authorities. Therefore, there is no certainty that, if we complete our task, Russia will leave. Then these will rise up and take out their anger. Moreover, the example of Kherson shows that the Bandera governor remained in office. Obraglev, he organizes rallies in favor of Bandera.

        I have also written about this topic. Never should this land return to Ukrainians. No anthems, no flags. They should even think about forgetting some sort of independence. This is a PART of Russia. And point. And Banderstan is there in Lviv and let him pay his debts

        Greetings!
        For a number of reasons, I do not share the opinions, plans that respond to your comment ...
        I saw, I felt how EBN merged the Baltics, how quietly, but consistently, Ukraine surrendered (along with all the sickly investments, like the Baltics, People!)../
        Well, yes ... Apparently it fell to us to rake ... "We", of course, - loudly, unreasonably said.
        There are "young", healthy...
        But you know, and now I am ready by virtue of knowledge, skills and opportunities.
        Sorry, a little note: literally the day before yesterday ... ((
        I drove up to the house, parked, a neighbor from the entrance knocks on the window: let me talk.
        I say, now, I’ll just remove the food packages (covid, fishing stocks are almost over)
        .Then, he says, come to me ..
        Well, let's go ... Honestly, I didn’t feel like drinking, and even more so with him .. Sorry for the details (I lowered the mass as not critical, but I think they strongly characterize a person, character ...)
        Again. Sorry for the long prejudice. Believe me, I suffered even longer ...

          This "comrade" (we crossed paths with him once until this moment), turned out to be dissatisfied with the fact that the "Saiga" was confiscated from him (the carbine, as it turned out, belonged to his father, a veteran of the Armed Forces) ...
          Sorry it took so long... (I endured no less).
          In the course of all family squabbles, we get to the point: two days ago, a comrade received a summons from the military registration and enlistment office. Show up for collection. And then the “pepper” broke through (!): “What am I? What kind of military man am I?
          Before that, he assured me that he served in the Airborne Forces ... True, I don’t know - but are there "jackets" for the Airborne Forces?
          And this is not the main thing!
          “Why me?
          Well, it's understandable - the wife is not good, ...
          I went to Belarus to my relatives ..
          Where to?

      It is not enough to surround, it is necessary to deprive even the minimum opportunity to receive reinforcements, or even try to go for a breakthrough.

      One of the tactics for the elimination of surrounded formations just provides for the possibility of the adversary to make a breakthrough. To pre-prepared mine and artillery positions ... "Hammer and anvil" is called a technique.

    It would probably be appropriate to call the offensive from the north to Ukraine - the first Ukrainian front, from the east the second Ukrainian, from the south the third Ukrainian, from the west the first Belorussian.

    It's all wonderful. Can you tell me why in the illustration to the articles a single Ukrainian tank appears from different angles.? What - there are no more documentary evidence of the victorious march of the Russian troops? The Ministry of Defense talks about dozens of downed planes almost a day .. but where is the photo evidence? It’s not that I don’t believe in the courage and valor of our army, but sorry, on the fences. They also write a lot of things ..

      "It's all wonderful. Can you tell me why in the illustration for the articles a single Ukrainian tank appears from different angles.?"
      ****************************************************************
      The answer is easy...

      Because the encircled group has practically no more tanks "on the move". And those that are without fuel do not go to the "breakthrough" of the ring. This time...

      Second... Professionals present to the audience, as a rule, the most "impressive" picture of all available. And EXACTLY the tank that you have in front of your nose from "different angles" is completely smashed "in the trash" ...

      Third ...

      What kind of "photo evidence" would you like to joke? .. When enemy aircraft are hit, not in "dog fights", but with the help of a "long-range" WTO or long-range air defense systems? ..

      Footage of the destruction of enemy aircraft in the air? .. At the parking lots of airfields? .. Or "fallen debris" in the territory controlled by the Kiev coups so far? ..

    In general, nothing is clear. The military talk about tens of kilometers of liberated people. And journalists in the media talk about the daily shelling of Donetsk and Lugansk. Even the number of shells count. Does the Armed Forces of Ukraine have guns with a range of 50-60 km? Or are they lying as usual? Although I am an amateur, it was shown in films about the Second World War that artillery preparation is carried out first, firing points are destroyed, and only then infantry with tanks go on the attack. And after this attack, the enemy should not have any weapons. And here, excuse me, it’s not clear - infantry and tanks have long been tens of kilometers ahead, aviation has been suppressed, and everything is being fired at Donetsk from cannons. Unclear...

      - Yes, here I am about the same thing - how can one believe in victorious reports - when Basurin himself constantly reports that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are constantly shelling from heavy artillery, MLRS in Donetsk and adjacent regions - and all this is constantly confirmed by more and more new and new materials (where destruction is shown) and surveys of local residents ???
      - I have already begun to doubt the very skillful winning comments of Y. Podolyaka.
      - Damn - already, judging by his reports - they will soon almost take Kyiv - and in Lugansk and Donetsk the Armed Forces of Ukraine are beating with everything - from everything! - Well, how can you believe both "in this" and "in this" at the same time ???

    Yes, and not only it, there are still quite a few different tactics. It's just that, as I understand it, the whole point is that the whole operation is carried out by a rather limited number of troops. And it is not always possible to carry out the full range of tactics

      You do not even want to give the slightest choice to the Ukrainian people? It seems to me that after the cleansing, everyone who wants to live with Russia will choose the Donetsk Republic and Luhansk. With all the pluses and minuses, and who does not want one with Europe. It is very difficult to raise the entire neighboring country purely economically. If we can show that it is better with us, then over time others will catch up.

    the example of Kherson shows that the Bandera governor remained in office. Obraglev, he organizes rallies in favor of Bandera.

    So it is necessary to gather this governor and all the protesters and bring them out to show the destroyed villages of the LDNR, Schaub talked with the locals. And ideally, to form construction teams from these banderlogs to restore the Donbass - so much faster to re-educate them!

    You are confusing something. Gorbachev surrendered the Baltics. And they were the first to declare separation. And Ukraine should have been crushed in 2014. But for some reason, Putin did not do this. Hoped for an agreement with the West?
