Russian troops broke through the defenses of the Aidar battalion and reached the Shakhtyorskoe-Novoukrainka line

The special operation in Ukraine continues, the combined group of troops of Russia and the republics of Donbass develops an offensive and liberates the territory of the DPR and LPR. While the Russian Ministry of Defense has not presented a new report for Sunday morning, here are some data for Saturday evening.


Let's start with Mariupol. On Saturday evening, there were no significant changes in the situation, street battles were fought. The divisions of the armies of Russia and the DPR continue to destroy the nationalists, gradually cleaning out the city. The number of evacuees increased, and the number of attempts by nationalists to leave Mariupol under the guise of civilians increased accordingly. But checkpoints work and quite effectively. Perhaps there will be some changes on Sunday morning.

On the evening of March 19, units of the Russian armed forces, crossing the Kashlagach River, broke through the defenses of the Aidar battalion * (an extremist organization banned in Russia) and, advancing 5 kilometers, reached the Shakhtyorskoye-Novoukrainka line. On the part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, units of the second echelon, in particular, the 54th separate mechanized brigade, entered the battle. The troops of the DPR defeated parts of the 53rd separate mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, completely taking control of the village of Taramchuk.


LPR units have reached the northern outskirts of Lisichansk, where fighting is underway with groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine retreating from Rubizhne. Rubezhnoye was practically cleared, in Popasnaya and Severodonetsk there were battles.


Heavy fighting north and east of Kharkov, but no details. In the area of ​​Izyum, there are battles for Kamenka, if it is taken by Russian troops, the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, holding the southern part of the city, may crumble. Raisins must be taken, as it prevents the further advance of troops on Slavyansk and Barvenkovo.

According to Nikolaev, Krivoy Rog and Odessa without changes. The Black Sea Fleet is still keeping the Armed Forces of Ukraine on their toes, simulating an amphibious landing, thereby preventing units from being transferred to other sectors of the front.

    I would now troll with might and main the defense of the same Odessa, or Nikolaev, would massively send them messages on mobile phones "learn the Russian language, I surrender words, do not shoot, like a password to leave the battlefield alive"! We need to psychologically crush them, we need continuous information pressure so that they do not go to the slaughter, but at least leave their positions en masse ... hi

But, apparently, in the course of the operation, it was decided that field demonstrations would be much more effective, which has been successfully carried out for the third day already.

            In some ways you are right, but Motorola remembered something when he turned on the speaker with Muslim prayers in his positions in the mornings.
            And psychological warfare should still be on the positions of our troops .. Or rather, run ahead of it. Well, drop leaflets there, loudspeakers around the clock, drop videos of prisoners calling for surrender on mobile phones .. Yes, the same Zelensky can be faked with an order to surrender, etc. d. This is very effective against such squatted frightened at least .. laughing

            In the Second World War, it still worked well, I read memoirs, how the Fritz were persuaded to surrender .. Many of their lives were saved, and the Germans (they then did a good job of restoring what they destroyed)

              the logic of some or many members of the forum does not fit in my head
              how can you constantly write on the forum "do not take prisoners", "APU and Nazis are one and the same"

              and immediately put plus signs for calls to "surrender"!
              I suggest to be consistent and not to go to extremes

              the main propaganda work with units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is now carried out by fighters on the front line
              the greater the success of the Russian troops, the less the desire to resist the Armed Forces of Ukraine

              the main task of the fighters of the information front is to work with the population of Ukraine

    If we are advancing so hard, if we have enough strength not only in all directions, but even in some separate sector, then why is there no reinforcement? Why not throw in an additional outfit of forces and means? Our media boast that our troops are fighting in numbers even smaller than the APU. And what is there to boast about? Why force our guys to fight at the limit of their strength, when it is possible to double or even triple their strength? I do not understand....

        1. Are you not embarrassed by military news during the last week in the style of "at the front without significant changes"? I'm embarrassed. And there are only two options - they do not want and cannot. If they cannot, then obviously due to the lack of additional forces.
        2. But where exactly there is not enough strength - this is in the territory that is, as it were, "under the control of the Russian Federation." What kind of control can we talk about if there is no way to place military or garrison in every settlement. But the military does not need this - they went on to carry out the task. But the National Guard is not there, there are no police forces, there are no new administrations. There's a vacuum. This is where the power is lacking.

          each day, significant damage is inflicted on the enemy.

          but you only see the point in moving forward.
          it's not always a priority.
          no brainer that it is important not to advance for the sake of it, but to complete the tasks

          before attacking actions, it is necessary to weaken and exhaust the opposing forces.
          while maximizing their own combat capability.

          thereby gaining a non-tactical victory.
          but bring the final victory closer.

            There is also a second task - denazification. Which is achieved, among other things, by working with the local population. But if you do not work with this population, if you do not create your own administrations and governing bodies, then the same nationalists will again fill this vacuum. Which, seeing inaction on our part in this regard, will become even more impudent. To create self-defense forces, similar to partisan detachments, they will start to intimidate people. People in these territories must be sure that Russia will not leave here. Otherwise, they will never be loyal to Russia, realizing that they will again be left to the mercy of fate, or rather, into the clutches of nationalists.

And if you were not personally informed about this, this does not mean that nothing is being done in this regard and only a "vacuum" is present. For example, I am sure that such work is underway, and very successfully. It has already been reported that in the liberated settlements. Peaceful life is being established, and what has been destroyed is being restored.

        Then the second question arises - what for do we need an army with conscripts if they are not ready or do not know how to fight? Even though that's what they're there for.

          It is impossible, because the authorities are afraid of losing the support of the population. There is such an attitude towards conscripts in society that they can only be used when repelling aggression against Russia.

          Only before demobilization, conscripts begin to understand military affairs. And all the time of the service is a psychological preparation and breaking of mother's concepts.

      If we are advancing so hard, if we have enough strength not only in all directions, but even in some separate sector, then why is there no reinforcement? Why not throw in an additional outfit of forces and means? Our media boast that our troops are fighting in numbers even smaller than the APU.

      There, dill was concreted for 8 years, buried, lined minefields, building a layered defense. Everything has been shot. It won’t work out quickly, no matter how many people you drive there. And why, if we, with our available forces, in three weeks, methodically squeezed a territory comparable to the territory of Bulgaria from the Nazis and prepared a couple of boilers, where they drove a group of 60-75 thousand bayonets? Neither today, nor tomorrow, these boilers will begin to grind, so that this grouping does not hang out in the rear, after which the advancement will go faster. In addition, we have the possibility of rotation in order to bring in fresh forces and give rest to those who have already worked on the front lines. Everything is going well. winked

    "... Us again Odessa
    Will meet as hosts
    Stars of the Black Sea
    They will shine for us.
    Nice Kahovka,
    Nikolaev city.
    These days ever
    We will remember -
    And when will not
    Hitler in sight
    And when to loved ones
    We will come again
    Recall to the West
    We walked in Ukraine.
    These days ever
    We will remember ... "(c)
    And that these Nazi creatures will not calm down in any way? Their history teaches nothing! Apparently it is necessary to REST at the root!

    The number of evacuees increased, and the number of attempts by nationalists to leave Mariupol under the guise of civilians increased accordingly.

    They showed how the militias check the evacuating men for involvement in hostilities: they check tattoos and bruises from bulletproof vests and butts.
