Russian troops change tactics near Artemivsk and repel attacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Luhansk direction

The armed forces of the Russian Federation continue to attack on the Donetsk front. Fierce fighting is currently taking place in Maryinka, where our military is trying to drive Ukrainian formations out of the settlement.


Subdivisions of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are undertaking attacks in the direction of Nevelskoye, Pervomaisky, Vodyany, and are operating from the side of Experienced. Also, the Russian army launched an attack in the direction of Alexandropol. However, no significant progress has been achieved in these areas so far, with the exception of Maryinka.

Near Artemovsk (Bakhmut), units of the PMC "Wagner" somewhat changed the tactics of hostilities. Firstly, they decided to advance on Dyleevka, and secondly, to attack at Podgorodny. The WarGonzo Telegram channel claims that this may be due to a change in the tactics of the Wagnerites. Seeing the futility of frontal attacks on enemy positions in Artemovsk, they decided to take the city from the flanks.

Fighting also continues near Soledar, and there was also an attempt to counterattack Ukrainian formations in the direction of Stryapovka. Also, Ukrainian troops counterattacked in the Krasnopopovka area, our military is holding the line of defense, and at the same time trying to reach Belogorovka.

It is interesting that the Ukrainian authorities had to refute the rumors about the capture of Kremennaya - nothing of the kind, of course, happened, since any attempts by the Ukrainian forces to attack in this direction collide with the competent defense of our troops.

Another important direction is Zaporozhye. It is relatively quiet here compared to the Donetsk and Lugansk fronts. Artillery today is less active than before, but you can’t say the same about Ukrainian formations. Thus, the Armed Forces of Ukraine carried out a missile attack on Tokmak, which plays an important role in the logistics of the Russian army in the Zaporozhye direction.

In the meantime, an air alert has been declared in Ukraine since the morning. The mayor of Kharkiv announced that the city was under attack. The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in its morning report also confirmed the high risk of continued strikes against critical infrastructure in Ukraine.

    If they attack, then some settlements should be liberated? .. It is impossible to write easier and truthfully: Heavy positional battles are going on ..

      Everything goes according to plan.
      Haste in the war can lead to unjustified losses, so let's hurry slowly.
      The enemy will be defeated. Victory will be ours.

        It would be better if you did not use these filthy words! Yes, let's hope and wish success to our soldiers and victory! But your optimism is overshadowed by erupting thoughts about how many soldiers could have been killed if it were not for the prevailing mess under Putin's ruling regime!

          You write in such a way that you seem to think that as if it were different with us earlier.
          Yes, actually, not only with us.

          And your pessimism saddens me, and what are we going to do about it, Vladimir? I remember the Armed Forces of Ukraine threatened to reach the approaches to the Crimea by these days, and how are you progressing? They had a bunch of troops freed from near Kherson.

        Here the question is not in a hurry, which is needed when catching fleas, as you know, but in the message itself. Not so long ago, Prigozhin said about Experienced: don’t say gop until you jump over, and he was right, otherwise Experienced was released from journalists, but in fact there are fights for him.

          There are no battles there, there is shelling from the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine of groups of Wagnerites, trying to somehow get out of there towards the wasteland in front of the outskirts of Artemovsk and dig in.

    coverage along the outskirts can be caused not only by the difficulty of moving in urban conditions. This is a reserve for expanding control over the ways of supply and departure. In fact, the groundwork for the military operation to encircle .... if so, then PMC Wagner has grown to the scale of a separate army group

    This is normal: after grinding the equipment and forces of the enemy, having received reinforcements and l / s, surround the city and strangle the group, blocking them with ammunition and fuels and lubricants ... in winter you won’t get much without ammunition and fuels. Most likely, Prigozhin prepared enough new reserves to encircle the enemy in a "cauldron", this is much better than putting his guys on the forehead ... strangling the pigs right in the pigsties, starving and without weapons.

      Five months to attack in the forehead is not quite normal

        The concept of "on the forehead" is one thing, after a powerful shelling, move along the shortest path, but having met return fire, roll back. And so on until there is no resistance. Completely different - to break, despite the losses

      after grinding the equipment and forces of the enemy

      The city is occupied by assault groups, the remnants of the defenders usually have the opportunity to retreat. This is how the Russian Federation acted near Lisichansk and Severodonetsk, and this is how it is acting now. But, as it turns out, the Armed Forces of Ukraine were ready for a continuous multi-month zek-rush.

      And you can choke in person, and not in the comments, it's not so difficult.

    Well, yes ... The enemy must be surprised ... with surprise and non-standard ... In vain, they taught so much time, hammering on the forehead ...
    (Yes - sarcasm, yes, crooked, but the phrase just endured everything human ...)

    somehow strange the author writes, they are trying to knock it out! can write destroy the Nazis to free them from them. it’s not enough to knock out the senses, they just leave alive, and that’s how they are destroyed.

      it makes sense to squeeze out the enemy only when it is possible to occupy relatively whole cities (as it was in Gorsky-Zolotoy and conditionally Lisichansk) ... when the cities are in ruins, then there is no point in squeezing out. the enemy must be destroyed. and for this, carry out operations to encircle and destroy

      Well, probably, they have many lines of defense in the rear for which they retreat when they feel that they will not be held, because the assault is not in a hurry. And the point is to stand to the last

    The mayor of Kharkiv announced that the city is under attack
    And what about Klitschko and the mayors of other cities while they are silent? We are waiting for complaints to pour in from other territories.

    And after all, only 5 months of continuous frontal assaults have passed! However, deciding to take the city from the flanks and actually taking it are two big differences.

    It took 5 months of stupid frontal attacks to prove that it was futile and that the city should be surrounded.
    Hmm.

    Once upon a time in the history of the development of automatic small arms, the topic of lubricating cartridges with oil was considered to reduce bore wear and improve the operation of the mechanism. Over time, the topic died out due to side difficulties.

    In my opinion, it would be nice to renew interest in this issue as a way to increase the wear resistance of artillery barrels. The presence of a layer of lubricant will certainly improve the interaction of the projectile with the bore, and the qualification of the gun crew will avoid negative side effects (such as getting sand into the oil, etc.).

      It will also speed up the formation of soot. At work, I "shot" a lot from a mounting gun. So. Nefig pour a bunch of oil. One fig, it will burn out after a couple of shots, but then you will stab to clean the cinder. And all kinds of dust and small debris stick to the oil awesomely. And if even in relatively calm conditions of construction work there are difficulties with this. How to keep clean under enemy fire waist-deep in mud.
      If only some kind of built-in lubrication and cleaning system ..

    And the Chechens suddenly disappeared somewhere.
    Novaya Gazeta writes that after a month of fighting, the Chechens received the Order of Heroes of Russia and returned "on vacation" to Chechnya. Now battalions of volunteers from the Chechen training center are fighting instead of them, only there are no Chechens in them.
    Lie, probably

    Indeed, Artemovsk should not be taken head-on, but it is preferable to cover from the flanks with subsequent encirclement. Banderlogs will not last long without external replenishment in winter. In Marika, in more comfortable conditions, even the most terry Nazis asked for mercy

    The phrase "change tactics" makes me shudder. Last time, after such a loud statement from the military correspondents, and then from the leadership of the NWO, we lost the entire part of the Kharkov region previously liberated by Russia within just a couple of days. And then Kherson and its suburbs!
