A Ukrainian drone captured footage of a Russian artillery strike on Ukrainian Armed Forces positions in the Pervomaisky area near Avdeevka

Footage of a powerful Russian artillery strike on the positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the area of ​​the village of Pervomaiskoye appeared on the Internet; the video was distributed by both Russian and Ukrainian resources. This was reported by the TG channel Operation Z: Military Correspondents of the Russian Spring.

Russian artillery launched a massive attack on enemy positions in the Pervomaisky area on the southern flank of Avdievka, where Russian troops are trying to break through the defenses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, moving from the direction of Peski. The filming was carried out by a Ukrainian drone. There is no explanation as to exactly when the footage was taken, but it seems that it was recently, judging by the weather and the snow lying in places.

- says the description of the video.


Meanwhile, Russian troops continue to form a pocket for the Avdeevka garrison, gradually surrounding the city, despite fierce enemy resistance. According to the latest data, the top of the Kyiv regime has set the task of holding Avdeevka to the last, transferring reserves from other directions. The day before it was reported that 40 battalions from 8 brigades removed from other areas were operating in the Avdeevka area.


Ours, in turn, continue to knock the enemy out of their positions; today in the south, with a sudden rush, assault groups of the Russian Armed Forces captured the forward positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the area of ​​the Vinogradniki SNT near the industrial zone. On the northern flank there are battles for forest plantations in the direction of Novokalinovo and Keramika, consolidation of positions along the railway in the direction of Ocheretino. Clashes in the area of ​​Stepovoye and AKHZ.

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine fears that with the fall of Avdiivka, the entire Ukrainian line of defense in this direction may collapse, since apart from this fortified area there are no other fortifications here.

        If you are looking for a simple question offering a simple solution to a problem, then the answer will be “No”.
        And of course, everything will be decided, but taking into account the nuances of the situation on the battlefield.

          I think the priority is not taking another height or village.
          The priority is to maximize the preservation of the lives of our soldiers while inflicting maximum damage on the enemy.
          That’s why we don’t go particularly forward.
          We create zones of tension, forcing the enemy to react and send new troops for disposal, and that’s all.
          Otherwise they could have taken Odessa and Kharkov. But at what cost?

        There now it’s like near Rabotino - a meat grinder of the Armed Forces of Ukraine’s reserves, + they are frantically driving everyone there to shut them up, exposing other directions

        Then we will be hit from both sides by those who remain in the cauldron and those who go to the rescue. This is not Mariupol.

      We covered 50 minimum hectares with rare rain. It doesn’t look like a massive raid; there’s no mention of a subsequent assault. I wonder if the enemy platoon and equipment were destroyed, or if the ruins were simply torn up?

        The radius of destruction of a projectile is 152 mm, 200 meters against unprotected targets and 100 against infantry fighting vehicles, so there is a rare rain..... and the artillery gunner sits there and the UAVs hang and adjust for specific targets

          It's not very similar. Hit simultaneously in different places, incl. along the pond. Shooting at the expected enemy dispersal area, or whatever it’s called. I hope it's successful.

            The battery is running around the squares of the enemy’s supposed concentration/dispersion, but at the same time the drone filmed the 3rd act of the ballet - they had previously covered the village and tightly

      Gorgeous panorama. Take care of the fighters, do not spare shells.

      Here is the answer from your like-minded person Grachev:
      “If there was a Russian army, then I would never allow tanks to go into the city. This is ignorant, wild. Well, secondly, if there was a Russian army, then, well, at least one parachute regiment it was possible to resolve all issues within two hours.—Interview[1] November 28, 1994[2] in connection with the capture of Russian soldiers who participated in the unsuccessful assault on Grozny by the Chechen opposition.
      (Grachev’s explanations in an interview in the spring of 2000) ...The point was that if you fought according to all the rules of military science: with the unlimited use of aviation, artillery, missile forces, then the remnants of the surviving gangs could really be destroyed in a short time with one parachute airborne regiment. And I really could have done it, but then my hands were tied."
      It’s the 22nd month of the Northern Military District, and you still think in terms of operations “Uran”, “Rumyantsev”, “Bagration”, East Prussian or Berlin! - the more divisions, the faster the victory! The problems are the same, but the solution is different, and it’s not 12-15 additional battalions on a 5-10 km front - it’s just 10-20 times more losses.

      Grads, of course, have no accuracy. And again, shooting in areas and directions, without adjustments, as in the first year of the Northern Military District. They hit wherever they hit. It seems they have already given up on such shooting, and here we go again. Are there a lot of shells and missiles? But with such shooting they can again quickly end without any benefit.

      I believe the goals are completely different, not to seize land as quickly as possible, but to exhaust the enemy both physically and mentally and force them to sit down at the negotiating table. We don’t need all of Ukraine with its embittered people, with destroyed infrastructure, debts, etc. Donbass is enough, maybe Odessa.
      On the other hand, if we achieve peace on our own terms, the second NWO will not come back to haunt us in 10 years, when Ukraine again gains strength, troops, etc. Is it worth going to the end, with the losses of thousands of citizens.
      Now I wouldn’t want to be the one at the top, difficult elections, difficult decisions...
