Russian troops broke through the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of ​​​​Experimental near Artemovsk

By the morning of January 4, it became known that PMC "Wagner" was able to break through the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of ​​​​the village of Opytnoye near Artemivsk (Ukrainians call it Bakhmut). Now PMC fighters are trying to reach the city from the southeastern outskirts.


Also, heavy fighting is going on in the areas of Kleshcheevka, PMC units are trying to move towards the city from Ozaryanovka and Kurdyumovka. Here they face the resistance of the Ukrainian formations.

To the north of Artemovsk, fighting is taking place near Podgorodny. In addition, Wagner PMCs are attacking in the direction of Krasnaya Gora south of Soledar, as well as in the Yakovlevka area.


The Russian armed forces continue their attacks in the city of Marinka, and also try to attack the fortified area of ​​the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Avdiivka, but here the results are less significant than near Artemovsk.

In the Luhansk direction, the main attacks are taking place in the area of ​​Belogorovka, Ploshchanka, Makeyevka. Also, with the support of artillery, attacks were carried out in the Stelmahovka area. Military experts believe that individual tactical successes may soon become more significant.

In the Zaporozhye region, Russian artillery is actively working on Ukrainian positions. The strikes are carried out on the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in a number of settlements. These are Plavni, Kamenskoe, Stepnoe, Maly Shcherbaki, Novoandreevka, Orekhov, Novodanilovka, Charovny, Gulyaipolsky, Zeleny Gay, Olgovsky, Zheleznodorozhny and the city of Gulyaipole itself. Interestingly, Ukrainian artillery practically does not work in these areas, which may be due to saving ammunition in case of more active hostilities.

Ukrainian artillery continues shelling residential areas of settlements in Donbass. Thus, Ukrainian troops from the settlement of Tonenkoye fired at the Kyiv district of Donetsk from artillery with a caliber of 155 mm at 9:26 and 9:35 on January 4. Air defense systems went off in the Proletarsky district of Donetsk in the morning.

Meanwhile, the Armed Forces of Ukraine continue to use drones to attack Russian targets in the depths of Russian territory. Thus, two Ukrainian UAVs were shot down by the air defense forces of the Russian Armed Forces in the Belbek region in Crimea.

    I'm afraid that
    that PMC "Wagner" was able to break through the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of ​​​​the village of Opytnoye
    will result in breaking through the first line, and the Ukrainians retreated to pre-prepared positions ...

      In this area, all the approaches to the cities and towns of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were carefully shot with artillery and mortars.
      The Ukrainians are waiting for the BTG or more often the RTG to move forward to attack into the square and open fire. Only a part of the soldiers break through. And in the evening, unable to gain a foothold, departs back.
      It has been so many times.
      The losses are big.
      The British, for example, are sincerely perplexed, are the Russians so stubbornly breaking into these cities?

        It is necessary not to break, but to use the whole range of heavy broads, including those with a special warhead. 0.2 kilotons per fortified area is enough.

        So we sincerely do not understand why this stupid beating of the forehead into a concrete wall? Is it really impossible to demolish to hell with dog artillery and TOSs all the oporniks on the outskirts of the city, turning them into smoking pits, and then go around the city? It’s even better, of course, to pour a hundred tons of bombs on these supporters, but here already with an eye on enemy air defense ...

          That's the thing, it's impossible. Because they are not there. Have you heard the expression "long arm tactics"?
          So, there the defense is carried out by artillery dispersed outside the city, and artillery gunners are observing in the city and its environs, both directly on the ground and using UAVs. As soon as they notice the movement or concentration of our units, an artillery or mortar attack is immediately launched. Well-established communication and autonomy of fire control makes it possible to do without pillboxes and other rudiments such as "bunkers" and "fortified areas", only communication passages, often given out by military commanders for trenches. There is no shooting battle in Artemovsk. And for artillery, redirecting fire 10 km to the right or 15 km to the left is a matter of a couple of minutes, not an hour if the units were transferred. For modern types of weapons, the elimination of a stronghold is a matter of a few minutes, well, think about why organize this type of stationary defense? If we are still taught "platoon on the defensive" and "company on the defensive" as a system of support units, then it is sad that this stage of hostilities is already completely outdated. And what the military correspondents write, so they need to write something, justifying the 10-month-long capture of Maryinka, Avdeevka and other "fortified areas". Therefore, it is not clear for whom the "meat grinder". It's not that simple.

      Why will it turn around? So it is, just in connection with the catastrophic drop in the level of education and the catastrophic increase in the degree of stupid "patriotism", even taking the chicken coop will be presented to us as the greatest strategic success. Journalists do not understand what a breakthrough is, well, there are no others, they have not been trained. Make allowances for this. But, beat off the line, it's already good.

      A descendant of Nicholas I (grandmother Gabriel was the tsar's granddaughter) Gabriel Doroshin volunteered for the NVO zone. According to the passport - French, but in the soul - Russian. Nikolai is married to Alina, a native of Donbass. He met her when she was in teacher training college. They got married in Lyon, and a year later they had a daughter, Sophia.
      Gabriel first came to Donbass when he was 18 years old. Initially, he wanted to be a photojournalist, but all the equipment was stolen from the guy. After a while, he decided to pick up a machine gun and joined a volunteer detachment. Today he serves as a scout in the Donbass as part of an assault group. “I saw how Europe mentally deteriorates. For my future, I want to be in Russia, not in France. Russia, the Russian spirit is closer to me.

    I have already really lost count of articles that begin with the words Russian troops broke through the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Experimental area near Artemovsk. Maybe it's enough to brag about every sneeze, and ONCE, when the time comes, say - Russian troops took and cleared Artyomovsk!
    I wish our guys victory! Journalists / bloggers and other talkers - stop running ahead of the locomotive and not spoil the joy of victory, but best of all - go to the front line and from there give an objective picture, and if there are no movements, then keep quiet.

          Has the thought adopted any law protecting our generals in the NWO from foreign courts, tribunals? At least a copy of the American one, which prohibits judging their servicemen for Iraq? In! Therefore, such cautious, tolerant actions on the outskirts! And this is one of the reasons that strategists do not fill up these cities with three tons of cast iron. It takes about 10,000 to 15,000 seconds for a beech to reach 40-120 meters, depending on the distance, do not fighters shoot down a dozen other missiles during this time? spices share infoy teapot?

      Already spoke.
      If you do not write these cheerful reports every day, then there will be nothing to write about at all. And you have to write and speak. So there are daily reports about the capture of the next outskirts, streets or houses.
      Here I am collecting material about the "destroyed" aircraft of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (interesting, by the way, figures emerge) and came across a note titled "It is reported that the Ukrainian garrison in Avdiivka has fallen into a semicircle." Do you know what date it is? July 18!!!
      Since then, nothing has changed... Every day there are reports about Artemovsk, Avdiivka, Svatovo... About the fact that someone broke through somewhere, got out somewhere, seized something, liberated it, cleared it, cleared it out.. .
      And nothing has changed.
      Will we wait for the capture of Bakhmut on the anniversary of the NWO?

We cheerfully reported on advances of 10 meters a day, on "grinding the enemy", on hundreds of destroyed enemies. How it turned out then, everyone remembers very well. So, such "offensives" are somehow alarming.

But I understand that for the environment it is required to have a preponderance of forces of at least three times. Hold the existing front, surround and hold the new outer front.

        Pavel expressed his bewilderment at the strange actions of the leadership of the RF Armed Forces against the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which is quite justified. But you really need to think, and also study history before teaching others. First, it is far from always necessary to have a 3-fold superiority of forces in order to encircle enemy troops. This is when they step on the forehead, it is necessary, but bypassing it is not necessary. In most large environments during the Second World War, it just did not exist. That the Wehrmacht took the troops of the Western Allies and the Red Army into the boilers in 1939-1942, that ours then took the troops of the Wehrmacht and its allies most often, without having such an advantage. To do this, one must have the initiative, be able to plan operations, bypassing the fortified positions of the enemy, and have a large superiority in forces and means, including, and even above all, in combat and other equipment, in means of fire destruction. Secondly, it is necessary to count and take into account not only the number of troops, but also the number of units of military and other equipment, as well as their quality and condition. Thirdly, the RF Armed Forces have a colossal superiority over the Ukrainian Armed Forces in terms of forces and means, but most of them are not used in the war against the Kyiv regime or are used passively. While we see a strange war. It is not yet clear why Russia's VPR is not in a hurry to win it. Either it is a matter of business interests, or in foreign policy and foreign economic interests, or is it some other political expediency of the supreme power of Russia.

      The whole point is that for detours, encirclement and subsequent strangulation, a lot of forces, weapons, equipment are needed. They simply do not exist.

      Of course, I didn’t graduate from the Academy of the General Staff, but I absolutely do not understand these many months of attempts to break through the fortified areas of the ukrovermacht in the forehead .. You read - and it feels like the year is 1916, the battle of Verdun .. And the whole subsequent hundred-year history of the development of military affairs is simply not there was .. There was no Guderian, no Manstein, no Göpner, no Rokossovsky, no Bagramyan, no Konev, no Vasilevsky, no Katukov .. Yes, in general - even Hannibal with his bypass on the flanks was not!

      I didn’t graduate from academies either, but even now I can draw a bunch of arrows showing how you can avoid head-on collisions and at the same time cut communications, surround groups and settlements. At the same time, of course, there will be losses, but these are losses with a result, and not stupid throwing reserves into a meat grinder (do not forget that they die equally on both sides).
      In response, I will immediately receive a bunch of minuses and they will call me a couch strategist, they will advise me to go to the military registration and enlistment office, but the fact remains - there is no advance and no offensive. As there are no tactics, no military tactics and strategy. You are right - our generals remained in development at the level of World 1.

            Yes, because one in the field is not a warrior.
            We need a normal mobilization of the country, not these 300 thousand.

      What to surround? It was already clear to me at the beginning of March that there would be no encirclement. Mobilization was not announced, in the ground forces there are only 8 divisions and 26 brigades slightly larger than a regiment. And from this composition, only countermen were thrown into battle, that is, in a heavily depleted composition.

For 50 - 100 years of proper education, the Russian language in the media, in the state and municipal service, in all government bodies, Russian literature and history will do their job. The main thing now is to liberate these territories, we will denazify the remnants of the population there.

    Why make loud headlines about breakthroughs if there are no tools for a breakthrough themselves - powerful mobile formations and there is no readiness to lose aviation, but to ensure air superiority. There is also no numerical superiority. There is a systematic pushing back and grinding the enemy.
    So far I consider the tactics chosen by our command to be correct - the realization of superiority in firepower and exhausting the enemy will sooner or later give results. Soon we will begin to stretch dill along the front.

      I don't agree. Such tactics would instantly work to influence a civilized country with a developed statehood, history, culture, but not in a proxy conflict, where the lives of aborigines are worthless. In our case, the overseas master needs either territorial losses or critical, I emphasize critical damage to the economy of the puppets. In the short term (five years for sure), this is not visible. And, most alarmingly, there are almost no hopes that the GDP as a magician will get some "trump cards" and "start to fight" - there is almost no left. Especially after the statements about "us deceived" and instructions to deal with the provision of soldiers with everything necessary after a year (!!!) of a military operation. What needs to improve radically in order for the situation to improve significantly? Mobilization was carried out. Factories (outside such a window) work at face value, but they release what we see and this is not HIMARS with MGM-140 (big hello to the Minister of Defense), but the delivery of ATACMS is a matter of time and nightmare of some of the same ones delivered in the summer , 20-30 installations will be up to the Volga. They have plenty of MANPADS and air defense systems and our aviation is only out of reach, we will not use tactical nuclear weapons (there will not be enough will). The bottom line: in a couple of years, reach the borders of Kramatorsk or something 20-50 kilometers away, without achieving any "denazification" or some other "de ..", laying down the lives of the best guys - such an idea ... Alas and ah . And - most importantly - to die for a state in which the elite are the people who plundered the USSR and their children with the level of prosperity / culture / upbringing / untouchability of Ksyusha Sobchak - you will think about it. Now the guys are dying heroically for their homeland, that's why they are called up from the villages and regional centers, where the consciousness is unclouded by Moscow liberalism.

        Well, let's see who is right, whether there is any damage to the puppet economy or not, and whether people are robots, to die endlessly, at the same time we'll see how many millions of parasites Western countries will feed.
        There are a lot of military factories and I have a lot in the city and I know the plans for their products, but I won’t surprise you. From the Hymars, I don’t share your sacred awe, because the same Iskanders and Calibers delivered much more accurate blows and buried the enemies, but the successes of the Hymars ended in the summer, and if it weren’t for stupidity in Makeevka, then what could they boast of over the past six months?
        ATACMS is a very expensive missile and it’s good if there are two in a salvo, but rather one, an excellent target for air defense, or do you think that Russia, having fired hundreds of Iskanders and thousands of other missiles, made the ukrov only laugh, and will itself kneel when hit by a couple of thousand ATACMS ( of which amers don’t have as many, and they won’t put them) of which 2/3 at least will be shot down?
        So in a couple of years, maybe we’ll reach the outskirts of Slavyansk, or maybe not, while I don’t see such a goal for the leadership, no breakthrough tools are being created, but presenting industry plans for production by 2024, I can allow the creation of large combined arms formations for normal war, only a couple of calls need to be made, to declare war and strengthen discipline.

          Well, let's see who is right, is there any damage to the puppet economy or not ...
          Putin himself said on TV ...
          "We pump gas through the GTS - we pay $ to Ukraine for pumping - Ukraine" wrinkles ", but takes $ ..."
          Russia itself gives $ to Ukraine - after all, this not war, but NWO ...

    We went in, now we need to get out alive ...... everything is in the fortifications there, the enemy is actively maneuvering, thereby leveling the small advances of our troops, the enemy has more reserves, as well as the ability to transfer drugs and equipment to dangerous directions ... ...
    Probably fighting with the tactics of small assault groups will not bring success, well, our attack aircraft will kill them and take their positions, so they will bring new meat to ready-made new positions .....

    I am more and more inclined to think that I will have to fight like in the Second World War - go in a huge avalanche - infantry, tanks, artillery at a distance

      A huge avalanche of tanks will now simply be destroyed by artillery, anti-tank systems. You really need a lot of infantry and artillery.

        easy to destroy 2 - 3 tanks. Right now, so many are going on the so-called "offensives". With quite predictable results. But if it really is an avalanche of 30-40 tanks, then it is unlikely that an artillery battery or anti-tank systems will be able to stop it.

          Already during the Great Patriotic War, the Germans stopped avalanche strikes from heavy tanks of the kv type due to unsuppressed artillery and good cooperation between troops.

      And who will run in the avalanche? We have no more than 20 million 30-10 year olds in the country. A couple of your avalanches and Russia will disappear on its own.

    After all, they are shooting at Donetsk from that territory, and the shelling is only growing, which indicates that the enemy still feels good there.
    I'm guessing it's all for the long haul.

    We already hear about such breakthroughs quite often, but the front has stood still, if there is an advance, then at a snail's pace, and news of this type is like this - "After long and intense battles, we captured half of the village of Staronovo Alekseevka."
    WWI, a large-scale war on the eve of the fall of the Empire.

      Well, yes, in your dill propaganda there is such a thing as "the fall of the Empire" (some stupid clowns all ballet some to hold a parade on Amer's tanks near the Kremlin), you can't wait, a resident of Lviv alt. I tell you as a resident of Russia from the Far East. We have there are also similar fools who predict the fall of another country, but at least no one appoints the governor of Alaska or California, unlike you Ukrainians. I would take care of my own problems, and not stick around on Russian sites. ?

    For such strikes, resources are needed - equipment and human resources ... Neither one nor the other was available in the amount needed for this in the summer.

    For such strikes, only one thing is needed: stop licking off "Western partners" and just start fighting. Both at the front and in the rear. Yes, and one more thing: to repress the entire supreme power. Both political and financial, and the military elite.

    There is nothing to break through. Each house is a line. More promising to work for the environment
