Russian fighter jet shot down a Mi-8 helicopter of the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Dimitrov DPR - Ministry of Defense

APU lost another helicopter, Russian anti-aircraft gunners shot down fourteen Ukrainian drones, fighting continues along the entire line of contact. This is stated in the new report of the Ministry of Defense.

Over the past day, the Air Force of the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost another Mi-8 helicopter, fighter pilots again distinguished themselves aviation VKS RF. Our fighter intercepted a Ukrainian rotary-wing aircraft near the settlement of Dimitrov in the DPR. Air defense systems shot down 14 Ukrainian drones of various types.

Encounter battles continue in the main directions, Russian troops are on "active defense", moving slowly forward in some sectors. There is no talk of an offensive, this is noted by both our and Western military experts, apparently expecting a counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, while continuing to grind Ukrainian troops.

In the Kupyansk direction, units of the "Western" group of troops attacked the enemy in the areas of Stelmakhovka of the LPR, Dvurechnaya, Stepovaya Novoselovka, Tabaevka and Sinkovka of the Kharkov region. More than 70 Vushniks, one armored car and four pickups were destroyed. An ammunition depot of the 127th troop brigade was hit near the village of Lukyantsy, Kharkiv region.

On Krasno-Limansky, the group of troops "Center" inflicted a defeat on the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the areas of Chervonaya Dibrova, Nevsky LPR, Serebryanka and Grigorovka DPR. During the day, up to 90 people of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, four armored cars, three cars and two D-30 howitzers were destroyed.

In Donetsk, units of the "Southern" group of forces destroyed more than two hundred Ukrainian military, nine armored cars, two pickup trucks, two Msta-B howitzers, Grad MLRS, two D-30 howitzers, a Polish self-propelled gun Krab and two AN / TPQ counter-battery radars -50. An ammunition depot of the 56th Motorized Infantry Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was destroyed in Kramatorsk. Apparently, this is the result of the night strike, which was previously reported by Ukrainian sources, but there was no confirmation.



In the South-Donetsk and Zaporizhia directions, the Vostok group of troops is fighting in the areas of Vuhledar, Prechistovka, DPR, and Malinovka, Zaporozhye region. The total losses of the enemy - up to 60 personnel, two armored cars, three cars and two D-30 howitzers. In the Kherson direction, up to 20 Ukrainian soldiers, the Acacia self-propelled guns and one US-made M777 howitzer were destroyed.

    Is fighting only the marine rf? And PMC Wagner is not fighting? Only the morf is fighting. Well, well done. They fight well. Gerasimov, already lost weight.
    Military observer Mikhail Onufrienko about Shoigu:

    “We have a minister of defense who is a lifeguard. How can the secretary of defense be a lifeguard? He has the mentality of a rescuer. I'm sorry, but the secretary of defense must be a killer."

      Maz, stop whining.
      I like to set fire to the fifth points of whiners-guardpatriots)))
      Go. First, a quote from memory from the canon scene about the duel between Miyamoto Musashi and Sasuke Kajiro:
      “You have already lost. You threw the sheath of your sword into the water because you are not going to return it to the sheath."
      In Ukraine, the number of universities and secondary schools is being reduced to a minuscule. For they understand that this territory has no future (Russia opened new schools and institutions even at the height of the Civil War, because it believed in its victory).
      Is the hint clear?
      Without education, the country has no future. Ukraine, in any case, has no future (even in the case of a ghostly hypothetical victory in the minds of a sluggish transatlantic chichimon Tarasik should be stupid and trained only in the most primitive labor, which, as for me, is tantamount to defeat).
      Now to the present.
      First, a short video from the front line:
      https://youtu.be/EbC_nWAwfWc
      Four "boxes" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are trying to advance across the bare field, two of them are destroyed, one is hit, the rest retreats randomly.
      Why did you choose this one out of thousands of videos? Because it is template, standard. APU makes several such “attacks” per day. Sometimes with the support of 2 tanks, sometimes the number of armored personnel carriers is up to 8-10, but the general plot is unchanged - they are discovered, shot from afar, the survivors retreat.
      Day after day, several such template plots. If you carefully read the “stingy and boring” MO reports, you will understand that the picture is exactly like that in fact. Numerous videos confirm this.
      This bullshit with "flying over open areas until they shoot" is called "highly maneuverable warfare" in American doctrinal documents. Against a regular army that has built a solid front, it does not work from the word at all. But the Americans (and NATO as a whole) simply do not know how to do anything else - due to the lack of experience in clashes with the regular army of other countries (do you need to explain why a lonely, semi-defenseless Iraq, bled dry before the war, is not considered?).
      That is, the lion's share of the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine occurs without contact with the enemy at all. They don't even see who is destroying them and from where.
      The only exception is the actions of assault squads in places like Artemovsk. But even there, attack aircraft go forward after being “softened” by artillery preparation with an advantage in shells per day by 5-10 times (whatever Prigozhin throws at the public, experts will understand).
      Meanwhile, clowns from the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense declare that "in a year, all Russian marines were killed 8 times."
      When I ask what game they are in, they get offended, swear a lot and dirty, but they don’t answer the question. Apparently it's classified information.
      Chubate Goebbels continue to feed their supporters with extremely miserable lies (domestic hysterics-multimillionaires-military Ukurs are similar). In particular, with fairy tales that "tanks are running out in Russia and T-54s are being sent to the front."
      For your information. According to British sources, one UVZ last year produced more than 20 new T-90M Proryv-3 tanks per month and upgraded at least 80 more tanks of previous models. That is, more than 1200 new and modernized tanks over the past year. In 2023, the Russian tank industry and the military-industrial complex as a whole undoubtedly increased volumes even more seriously.
      Comrade Martyanov from the United States (who wrote an analyst for the Pentagon "fink tanks" years before, also a dozen books on the subject) calls the number of tanks produced in Russia over the past year at 1500 (UVZ is not the only tank plant in Russia, if that). And he says that ~ 3000 tanks will be produced in this.
      So, it is more likely that Taras and Mykola will run out in Ukraine and Zero shells will remain in NATO than "tanks will run out" in Russia.
      But, of course, one must believe Arestovich and other Podlyaks. That's right tomorrow the tanks will end, oga.
      March 23, by the way, was the anniversary of how the BBC wrote that the Russian army had run out of shells and food. And for a year now, hungry Russians have been fighting with sapper shovels.
      How was it there? The news “look, Russia is falling apart” Svidomo slave and domestic guard patriot can be deceived up to 600 times a day.
      From Putin's speech.
      1. Consumption of Ukraine per day up to 5 thousand shells. The current hyped production in the USA per month (!) 14-15 thousand. That is, for three days for the Armed Forces of Ukraine & mercenaries.
      2. NATO will deliver up to 2023 tanks to Ukraine in 400 (in reality, according to detailed calculations, less than 300, well, let them amuse themselves, let's not argue). Russia will produce 1600 tanks (Martyanov believes that much more, while Vladimir Vladimirovich is "modest").
      I’ll add on my own that Reznikov demanded from Europe 250 thousand shells per month, but there are simply no such astronomical numbers for the EU in Europe.
      she also wrote down an appeal, where she cried that they didn’t give planes, there weren’t enough tanks, they didn’t give shells, and so on. Although everything is predictable here: if you see Zelensky, now he will lie and beg.
      In general, the terrible “offensive” that they have been trying to scare us with since the fall is constantly being postponed indefinitely. Midnight is approaching, but there is still no advance ...
      By the way, the Ukrainian air defense, despite being strengthened by NATO supplies and thousands of satellite and AWACS constellations, ceased to exist as a single system. If earlier missile-drone raids were massive, overwhelming the capabilities of the UkroAir Defense to intercept, now they are being targeted as needed, without bothering. Yes, and aviation is working more actively (at the same time, air raids in Ukraine are almost continuous, and the Ukrainian Defense Ministry somehow calmed down with victorious reports about “shot down 100 out of 10”, dejectedly).
      I watched more Western experts, whinnied. They say that the Kiev regime constantly says “we will attack here, we will attack there”, and the Russian army at least said a word about its plans ... Aha, shchaz! Ours are not forelock tebils, in order to spread their plans in open access.
      Although in fact there is an impression that there will be no "offensive". Or it will be, but such a shameful zilch that it would be better not to even try.
      Meanwhile, experts are arguing about how many APU warriors are sitting in the boiler in Artyomovsk. Some call numbers in the 15-20 thousand. Previously, they called less, but now they say there is more accurate information. Another pocket is brewing in the Avdeevka area, plus 3-5 operational encirclements are planned in other areas of the front.
      All experts agree that the APU is rapidly declining cohesion. What does that mean? That the front can crumble at any moment. In very unexpected places.
      The mood of the Americans somehow changed dramatically. Then they squealed "no truce, no Chinese peace plan." And just a couple of days later, the same Blinken, who had previously raved that “the truce is contrary to the UN charter” (SHIELD?!), is already declaring in Congress “If we see at least some signs that Russia is aimed at constructive diplomacy and is ready to it, in order to put an end to aggression, we will pounce on this opportunity.
      What about the UN charter? And what happened?
      Macron, by the way, greetings from 3,5 million protesters. They wanted a "change mode" in Russia, but there will be a saying about "do not dig a hole for others."
      Although, to be honest, I'm more waiting for the Democrats to still arrest Trump. I really want it, popcorn sours ...

          He is a banal guardian troll, writing praises to the "wise" helmsman and his retinue.
          writes about the consumption of ammunition of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, at a time when we ourselves have problems with shells. And that's with it. that the industrial potential of the EU, the US. and other countries of the Western bloc is hundreds of times higher than ours.
          It is the guards who are the accomplices of the traitors, because for years they have glossed over the problems with optimistic paints. If there is a problem. it is not necessary to hush it up, but to solve it. hi

        According to RBC (2019 article):
        "
        According to the agency, over the years of optimizing the education system, the number of rural schools in Russia has almost halved, and urban schools by a quarter.

        Russia faces a shortage of places in schools, warns the Accounts Chamber (JV). Now 16 million children and adolescents study in Russian schools, but in the coming years the number of students should increase sharply, the press service of the department reports, citing the auditor of the Accounts Chamber, Svetlana Orlova.

        “By 2024, the number of schoolchildren will reach almost 20 million and the general education system must meet this challenge,” Orlova said, speaking at the State Duma.
        "
        And in 2023, the state of affairs has not changed much. So the rest of the order can not be read!

        Everything depends on the task. If it is necessary to destroy armored vehicles, then the "bumblebee" is certainly a priority.
        But if we are talking about a banal launch of a NAR from a nose-up, then the "bee" is better, the ammunition is larger.
