"Lugansk governor" announced the beginning of the offensive of the Russian Armed Forces in the Donbass and entry into the city of Kremennaya

While the Ukrainian General Staff was issuing reports from the series “there are no losses to the Armed Forces of Ukraine” and “the enemy was not successful in any of the directions”, information is being received about the successful offensive of the Russian Armed Forces and the troops of the People’s Militia of the LPR in the north of the republic. According to the latest information, the Russian army entered the city of Kremennaya. It is a settlement with a population (2021 estimate) of about 18 thousand people, located 20 km from Severodonetsk and less than 10 km from Rubizhne.

The entry of Russian troops into Kremennaya was announced by the protege of the Kiev regime in the Lugansk region, Sergei Gaidai, who holds the post of the so-called “Luhansk governor”.

Gaidai writes on the social network:

It can be stated that the offensive has already begun. The situation is extremely acute.

Gaidai claims that street fighting began in Kremennaya. Earlier there was information that the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the outskirts of the city were crushed.

Recall that the other day there was information that Russian troops managed to inflict damage on the enemy and take up positions in the territories on the right bank of the Oskol reservoir - east of Izyum, Kharkov region. This made it possible to start moving from the north to the Lisichansk-Severodonetsk agglomeration, of which the city of Kremennaya is considered to be a part. The city (station) is located on the Kupyansk-Popasnaya (Kharkov-Donetsk) railway line, which was blocked by Ukrainian nationalists for a long time.

      It seems that, taking into account the battles in Mariupol, one should no longer be shy in choosing means of destruction, and if there are trenches and fortifications in houses ahead - hail + 152,122, mortars, and only then advance towards them.

    Now I guess that no one will hear the loud command “Forward”. There will be no great general artillery preparation, hundreds of tanks and planes will not be launched simultaneously.

    The offensive has already begun, in the West and North of Donbass, from Zaporozhye and Kharkov.
    Yes, and here, near Donetsk, the troops do not smoke. Avdeevskoe direction, Gorlovskoe - for the enemy remain very threatening.

    The only thing is that we will not close the boiler with a “lid” from the side of Maryinka, Kurakhovo. But this will be much easier to do after the development of success in the movement from Kharkov and Zaporozhye. As I understand it, two rings can form around the APU at once.

    These are thoughts, thoughts. In the General Staff of Russia (I really hope) they know everything in advance.

    Campaign, the movement went on all fronts.

    Some nonsense. Kremennaya has been controlled by the LPR for at least 2 weeks. And if we are talking about the station, then it is, in general, not a strategic object. And Kremennaya was never a part of the Severodonetsk agglomeration, but was a regional center.
    1. Alexander Salenko
      Alexander Salenko April 18 2022 12: 19
      Well, in general, Rubizhnoye and Kremennaya are tightly tied up, many from Rubizhnoye work there (whether). And Rubizhne is definitely part of the Severodonetsk agglomeration, what does it have to do with a purely administrative division? Won administratively Sevastopol is not Crimea, excuse me, but where is it located, if not in Crimea?
      1. Kwasar9000
        Kwasar9000 April 18 2022 12: 45
        Do not write nonsense if you do not understand. You never know where someone works, all the residents of Nikolaevka in Lugansk work, so what? And for that matter, it was the residents of the Kremensky district who worked in Rubizhnoye! Kreminnaya has never been part of the agglomeration. As for Sevastopol, yes, it has never been a part of Crimea at all. Although it is located on the Crimean peninsula.

          Uh-huh, if I don’t know something about Rubizhne and Kremennaya, then don’t make my slippers laugh with the Crimea, in which I have lived all my adult life, which means I have never been, Lord? It was only under Khrushchev that he was withdrawn from the region, just in case, but what was cut into Sevastopol is part of either the Bakhchisarai region, or greater Yalta. And for some reason with me that with my parents at SSU. Frunze studied Sevastopol. WHAT is there with Sevastopol University? Created a branch of Moscow State University under Luzhkov? Yes, it's just ridiculous.
          And how is it located in the Crimea and is not a part?

              Read Markevich, the Taurida province in the Crimean War, that's about the economy exactly and not about military operations. Sevastopol was immediately created as a base for the fleet, even Suvorov, before the first reunification of Crimea with Russia, pointed precisely to the South Bay, which is smaller than the North but less stormy. Well, who will provide economic support for all this?
              The only thing. what I want to emphasize and always emphasize, Sevastopol was not transferred to the Ukrainian SSR, i.e. there was a 22-year occupation, for which Russia also paid.

    Sorry for being off topic. There, photos and videos of burning Moscow before the flood surfaced, will there be an article with analytics? The damage did not appear to be fatal. It turns out that the cruiser was blown up due to the unsuitability of the survivability fighters No.

      No wonder there is an idiom "inevitable accidents at sea." Without knowing the details, and they, in particular, include the architecture of the ship, draw conclusions, especially condemn someone of pure voluntarism.

    According to Sladkov, Mariupol seems to have been very "ridden". Some of the lines were very intriguing. I really want this not to become another "let's go to Avdiivka" in the year 2016. Then the "online offensive" ended sadly.
    I strongly doubt that with the "unfinished" Azovstal, ours will create a qualitative advantage on the southern front. It seems that Sladkov gives out what he wants as real.
    1. Alexander Salenko
      Alexander Salenko April 18 2022 12: 21
      Yes, how can I say, there are up to 2,5 thousand militants on Azovstal, well, how many are needed to block them? Approximately the same number, a little more, but there was a garrison of the city of 20 thousand, if not more.

      Sladkov sometimes talks and it’s not a fact that what he says is a fact. However, from my couch point of view (and based on life experience), I would start attacking just from the south. First, along the left bank to the outskirts of Donetsk, and it is necessary to support this offensive along the left bank towards Zaprozhye and Krivoy Rog. But there is not so much to attack as to portray the offensive. And only then act according to the situation, if the southern front falls apart (and it should do so with a good blow), then when you reach Donetsk-gorlovka, you need to make a bowler hat there, preferably fencing off from Zaporozhye and already from Izyum, when the Armed Forces of Ukraine begin to twitch and most likely transfer forces to the south, hollow out to the west or southwest. Again, for this it is necessary to block the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Kharkov. Unfortunately, the RF Armed Forces are unlikely to have so many forces for such an operation. Although it is logical that it would be easier to break through the front from the South

        "when the APU starts to twitch" ///
        The Armed Forces of Ukraine deployed significant forces to the east,
        released from Kyiv and the Chernihiv-Sum region.
        And they will start "twitching" "according to the situation", only when it becomes
        the direction of the main blow of the Russian army is clear,
        and the main tank units will be drawn into the offensive.

          the blow must be delivered not where it is obvious, but precisely where there are not many forces and the territory does not allow the creation of fortified areas. But if you were still smart enough to destroy the transferred forces on the march, the left bank would have been cleared out quickly enough, well, not by May 9, but in May. Well, do not spread it along the entire front, but beat in one narrow place and develop the seizure of territories. These are purely logical reflections from the couch, which I cannot appreciate in the General Staff of the Russian Federation, but judging by what they did before, they can throw out anything. Definitely now trying to push through from Izyum and from Donetsk-Gorlovka, well-fortified positions, in order to make a boiler is a crime.
