“Strike targets achieved”: The Ministry of Defense confirmed the strike on Ukrainian energy and gas production facilities

On the night from Saturday to Sunday, the Russian Aerospace Forces carried out a group strike with air-launched cruise missiles, as well as drones-kamikaze attacks on objects on the territory of Ukraine. The targets of the attack were facilities in the electric power industry, gas production industry, and assembly and testing sites for unmanned boats. As the Ministry of Defense emphasized, the result of the strike was the disorganization of the work of enterprises of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex, and the destruction of military equipment and weapons supplied by Western countries. All strike targets achieved.

There are practically no changes on the line of combat contact; there is progress, but it is of a tactical nature. In the Belgorod direction, ours continue to identify and eliminate Ukrainian DRGs; in the past 40 hours in the Potikhonovo and Zemlyanka districts of the Kharkov region, up to 70 ground vehicles were destroyed, as well as two MLRS: the Czech RM-XNUMX Vampire and the German Mars.



In the Kupyansk direction there were battles in the Sinkovka and Terny areas, three enemy counterattacks were repelled. In Donetsk, ours occupied more advantageous positions in the areas of Kleshcheevka, Ivanovskoye (Krasnoe) and Kurdyumovka. A counterattack of the Ukrainian Armed Forces was repelled in the Krasnogorovka area. The military department does not report anything regarding Ivanovsky, but this is already traditional. The Ministry of Defense is waiting for the final cleanup and moving forward.

In the Avdeevsky direction, the Russian Armed Forces advanced in the Novgorodskoye, Shumy, Tonenkoye, Pervomaiskoye and Berdychi areas. Nine counterattacks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were repelled. In Yuzhno-Donetsk, ours improved the tactical position in the Urozhainoye area. No changes on Kherson, fighting on the Rabotino-Verbovoe line.

Total losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces per day in all directions, excluding Belgorod: in terms of personnel - 990 people killed and wounded; in armored vehicles - three tank, seven armored vehicles, one armored personnel carrier and 22 vehicles; for artillery - one M777 howitzer, one Msta-B, one M119, one D-30, two Gvozdika self-propelled guns, one Krab self-propelled gun and a Rapier anti-tank gun. During the counter-battery fight, three M777 howitzers, two D-30, one Msta-B, two Gvozdika self-propelled guns and one Akatsiya self-propelled gun were hit.

Operational-tactical aviation, drones, missile forces and artillery destroyed: ammunition depots and UAV storage facilities, four P-18 air target detection and tracking radar stations, one electronic warfare station. Air defense systems destroyed 172 drones, 11 Storm Shadow cruise missiles, three Neptune anti-ship missiles, four MALD aircraft guided missiles, as well as 22 HIMARS and Vampire MLRS missiles.

      We can bomb power plants for a long time, but the Ukrainians will receive new transformers and everything will return to normal. We need to act like the Yankees, as far as I remember in Yugoslavia - they used a filler in the bombs in the form of thin graphite fibers, which burned power lines, shorting them together! Why don't we do this, because it is many times more difficult and expensive to stretch tens of kilometers of new power lines How to replace a dozen transformers!

          Why didn’t the Yankees use such means in Syria or Afghanistan, or why won’t Iran be blown to smithereens? Well, or at least the same Houthis? A bomb with graphite dust every week, on schedule and that’s it, here’s a white flag for you in a month.

            Is the territory in Syria and Afghanistan enmeshed in a network of overhead lines? Or is there some kind of energy-intensive production there, without which there will be a crisis?
            It is in Ukraine, accustomed to the benefits of civilization in cities with a population of 30 thousand or more, that collapse will occur if gas, electricity, water supply, sewerage and garbage collection disappear...

                    ...in 2002, Minister of Electricity Muneeb Saem al-Daher stated that 26% of the country's total electricity production was wasted on transmission, amounting to $57,7 billion in losses. These factors combined to lead to increasingly frequent power outages, which in turn caused public discontent.

        You have heard about overhead line protection; even a short circuit does not greatly harm the overhead line. And restoring an overhead line is easier than manufacturing a transformer; if you haven’t encountered this, then there’s no need to write about it.

      And where can you “bomb” modern Ukraine if its leadership is ALREADY sharper than in the Stone Age - not exactly monkeys, but you can’t even call them people?

          Greetings! I support, a lot of honor to the freak.
          From the modern vision in the operational structure of explosives, the prevailing trends are toward the simultaneity of destruction of critically important objects (CIO) of government agencies, including the state apparatus, along with the CEO of the defense system to achieve an avalanche-like effect of loss of both control and strike potential of the enemy.
          At the present time, which can probably be assessed as the pre-war and one of the pre-war periods, without the calculation of time duration known to us (usually either with the onset of a new period of preparation for war or the immediate outbreak of war), military action is being carried out and this is not a random form of warfare, for For us, it can be considered traditional for preparing for war, as a larger-scale armed conflict (regional level - war) and the transition to wartime (WW), which allows us to have a more advantageous position in the main strategic directions, in particular in the West. . SN in the European Theater of Operations (ETTVD) and a number of other advantages in organizing the state in wartime, including gaining experience in preparing and conducting elements of aerospace operations in the form of various strikes with advanced weapons on protected objects of the enemy’s military infrastructure, and if at the same time If it is destroyed by the ETVD, then an additional beneficial effect of using this weapon is achieved.
          If solving the next problem in the Northern Military District requires the liquidation of the leadership of Ukraine, then this will most likely be done, but for now Zelya is not a priority. This is also part of the reason; apparently, large operations involving the defeat of a large number of enemy air defense systems have not yet been planned.

They constantly take pictures in front of government buildings, showing that they are in the country. They constantly give interviews in studios, not in shelters.

      Boundaries are levels of distance from any initial linear spatial constructions. We need other - speculative boundaries - the necessary levels of readiness for war, that is, a new quality of the country, where the state and the people are one and the same and it is ready to conduct a war with an efficiency not lower than the enemy, and, if necessary, even leading to his complete destruction.
      Based on the operational properties, the quality of the theater of operations within the borders of the territory of Ukraine makes it possible to effectively conduct combat operations there by occupying operational areas adjacent to the natural barrier areas of the terrain, and this is virtually the entire Left Bank or there, far to the West beyond the right bank of the Dnieper, where at one time there was a strong hand cut Comrade. Stalin, having consolidated the achievements of the spacecraft in WWII, apparently guessed that everything was propriety for the unreasonable descendants, but he was mistaken with the level of propriety.
      Yes, and from the primer it is known that without obtaining the most advantageous positions in the theater of operations within the boundaries outlined by the State Duma of the Republic of Belarus, the enemy will conduct large combined arms operations or V-NNO in the East. SN is very difficult against us, which is why RB has always been the first target.

      The Naftogaz Group continues to provide stable gas supplies to Ukrainians. As a result of the morning attack in western Ukraine, the ground infrastructure of one of the underground gas storage facilities of Ukrtransgaz - Operator of Gas Storage Facilities of Ukraine was hit, and technological equipment was damaged.

      The chairman of the board of NJSC Naftogaz of Ukraine announced this on Facebook.

      According to him, work to localize and eliminate the consequences is now ongoing.

      “There are no critical consequences for ensuring the operation of the underground gas storage facility, since the gas is located at a considerable depth. The damaged part of the ground infrastructure will require restoration, but we have enough reserve capacity. The attack will not affect the supply of blue fuel to Ukrainian consumers,” he notes.

      All nominations from customers for storage and capacity booking services continue to be fulfilled in full.

      They talked a lot, but it all ended with talk, about traction substations that ensure the movement of electric locomotives.
      They said that diesel locomotives could not provide the volume of transportation, that diesel locomotives needed fuel oil, and that in general there were not enough diesel locomotives. So why then was the question hushed up?
      I’m afraid to assume that the electric locomotives carrying weapons to the east do not go back empty, but loaded with something that cannot be sent by pipeline, but is expensive by plane. What is this - a question for our traders in Moscow, supplying the enemy with strategic raw materials.

      That’s why electric locomotives run, that’s why traction substations work.

          They have talked more than once about different uranium titans. There are, of course, cheerful statements that THEY have completely abandoned our raw materials, that the same Boeing has almost switched to Kazakh titanium...

          I wouldn’t be surprised if I hear that tanks with diesel fuel for tanks are coming from us to Ukraine. According to the documents, naturally, the diesel fuel will be some kind of Bulgarian. We’ve already heard about “gas reverse”, why not arrange “diesel reverse” using the same scheme?

          And our hucksters, traditionally, don’t give a damn - they’ll sell the devil a poker and a rope to their own executioner. If only they paid well.

            Don't know. I doubt. At the beginning of the Northern Military District in Ukraine, several thousand (2 thousand, if memory serves) of the company's carriages were seized. They shipped rental products through Chernomorsk... And not only, but also transit. If there are deliveries of the goods you listed, then I assume not through Ukraine.

              Money loves silence.
              I, despite the fact that my business is exclusively peaceful - construction, and is entirely located in Russia, I don’t talk about my contracts in the news. And if the raw materials are strategic, and even if there is a bargain with the enemy, it is unlikely that anyone will report about this in Vesti on TV. So we have to operate with what the journalists invent, relying solely on the degree of fantasticness of the rumors.
              About uranium and sanctions - official information, but everything else - everyone determines for himself whether this can happen or not. I, knowing our hucksters closely, define these assumptions for myself as quite probable.

    “Strike targets achieved” -

    — The main thing is that after “achieving” the goals do not remain intact...

    good And before the French and NATO come up with any more stupid ideas, then there are all the highways and railway lines that lead from Poland and Romania to Ukraine.

    There are practically no changes on the line of combat contact; there is progress, but it is of a tactical nature.

    It's hard to notice without a magnifying glass. It is also unclear in which direction there or here or tomorrow.

    Starovokonstantinov was bombed and bombed, and from there as many as 9 planes took off, well, how is it that it doesn’t take long to restore the runway itself, you need bunkers where the planes themselves are hidden, and more planes are only appearing, and soon the F 16 will arrive in time, then they’ll bombard everything with missiles. What they report to us was damaged by a targeted strike, they restore it within a few days

    What does “hit” mean - is it destroyed or what? - and - the armored personnel carrier is not an armored vehicle or, and, not a vehicle at all?
