The Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to heroically... retreat. The front is collapsing

More and more reports from the contact line suggest that at the moment the situation is becoming quite grim for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The Ukrainian command simply does not see a real way out. The creeping advance of the Russian army has turned into a nightmare for Ukrainian formations. This is a roller coaster that simply cannot be stopped.

All the talk in Kyiv about the construction of some kind of defensive structures, the allocation of some huge sums for this work no longer inspires those who must defend these very “newly built structures.” And it’s not at all a matter of loss of morale or reluctance to fight among the soldiers and officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.



It seems to me that the point is in the very mentality of the Maidanists, which infects the majority of Ukrainians. The point is in the already classic word for Ukrainians “soon”! When it comes to Russia, most of those who are now “in the news” will routinely tell you that soon Russia will collapse, soon we will run out of missiles, soon the Buryats (Tatars, Chechens, Chuvash, Chukchi or some other people RF) will start a riot and so on.

“Soon” worked in exactly the same way during the notorious counter-offensive of 2023. Soon NATO will give the Ukrainian Armed Forces... and then that’s it, the Russians will run. Remember, perhaps, the confidence of the Ukrainians that the appearance of Leopards or Abrams on the front line would immediately cause panic among the Russians?

And even the fact that, instead of panic, the Leopards gave rise to “socialist competition” among Russian fighters to see who would be the first to get this beast, did not shake the Ukrainians’ faith in “soon.” How much has been said and written about assistance to Ukraine, which for some reason was delayed by the United States and NATO. How much has been written about the F-16 as a panacea for the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

But the activation of the Russian army, the liberation of “impregnable fortress cities”, the destruction of elite units and formations of the Ukrainian Armed Forces gave rise to a new “soon”. This “soon” has already cost Ukraine tens of thousands of killed and maimed men and, alas, women.

“Soon the Russians will run out of steam, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will heroically repulse the attack on prepared defense lines and begin a victorious counter-offensive. But for this we now need to stand to the death on those that are of little use for defense, especially when the Russians have such powerful means of destruction as FABs, large-caliber artillery and modern tanks, frontiers.
And at this time a powerful defense system will be created in the rear..."

People are dying. No one argues anymore that the counterattacks of the Ukrainian Armed Forces are just attempts to fill the front with the corpses of their soldiers in order to stop the advance of the Russian army for at least a day or two. I see a lot of videos of the surrender of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but I also see a lot of dead soldiers in positions. They stood until the last minute.

The Russian mentality has been preserved... Alas, from the first days of serving in the army I was taught to treat any enemy with respect. This in no way detracts from the heroism of our soldiers. Defeating the weak is easy, but defeating an equal or stronger one is valor!

No matter how slowly the offensive of the Russian army developed, the enemy abandoned the first line of defense. Rolled back to second. And this is where doubts about this very “soon” appeared. It turned out that instead of a full-fledged defense line, oporniks were built there, which do not pose any particular danger to the Russians. Not a line, but centers of defense.

That’s why selected, fired formations are fleeing from the front line. I have already written about the prospects for defense in such conditions. Either death or captivity. There is no talk of any kind of victory, much less a counteroffensive. There is also no talk of reinforcement or rotation. Experienced fighters are well aware of this prospect of getting a “one way ticket”...

“Twenty-five” again, the Russians are such inventors...


In a recent article, I talked about the new tactics of the Russian troops, against which the Ukrainian Armed Forces have not yet come up with anything. Let me remind you that back then I expressed the idea that in modern warfare, the one who works outside the box, in a new way, often wins. Surprise to win. How simple, isn't it? But only when the person standing against you is not a warrior, but some kind of civilian.

Today it’s time to reveal another “open secret” of our army. Those who are deep into the topic already know about this. As I understand it, the Ukrainian staff also know about this. I have written several times that storming fortified settlements head-on is a rather adventurous and dangerous undertaking. Equipped defenses with minefields and targeted areas are not particularly conducive to an offensive.

But in any defense there are places “where no man has gone before,” in particular a sapper or an artillery gunner. In many ways, this is not even due to “geography”, but to logistics and the ability to quickly transfer troops from one area to another. Any commander understands that in the heat of battle it is quite possible for his own units to enter minefields. This is where “bald spots” appear.

What is the essence of the “new Russian invention”? I’ll start with where the previous material started. From a surprise attack on Ocheretino. The fact that this was illogical was clear to everyone. The village is at a commanding height with prepared defenses. At the same time, if you go back a little in time, the idea of ​​an open field behind the defense line in this area was actively disseminated in the Ukrainian media and on many Internet channels.

In fact, Russian intelligence has long known about the construction of several lines of defense in this “open field” at once. Without fanfare, one might say in secret from everyone, the Ukrainian Armed Forces built four lines at once. They wanted to “lure” our formations there. Drive into the cauldron and destroy.

Today we can already write about how heroic sappers searched for these very “bald spots” at night. It's not a fun job, I must say. Especially considering the work of snipers on the other side. But they found it!.. These are berms. Those same ledges on the slopes of railway tracks to drain water and give stability to the railway embankment.

Agree, few people would think of stepping on the berm. The technology simply won’t work there. The passage is narrow and at a serious angle. And the infantry... Without equipment and serious art... In general, the logic of the Ukrainian fascists is clear.

The same thing happened in the Novokalinovo area - the 115th Mechanized Infantry Brigade calmly waited for a blow to the forehead. But there, just like in Ocheretino, the same “bald spots” in the defense were found. By the way, sappers continue to work, and quite successfully. So maybe I'll tell you something else.

Everything turned out quite according to the Ukrainian Armed Forces’ plan. Russian aviation began to process positions with the 115th FAB. The artillery bombarded the defense with shells. Classic preparation for an assault. But then the Russian inventors began to act completely stupidly. We followed these same railway tracks to the north. Bypassing the defense of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.

Ideally, if there were no total superiority in aviation and artillery, the Russians themselves would get into the cauldron. Given the existing balance of power, units of the Russian army actually went behind the defenders’ rear, practically depriving them of the possibility of retreat. Hence the same drape towards Arkhangelsk, which I wrote about earlier.

So what did we see in this case? This is the case when the new is the well-forgotten old. I would say this is a modernized wedge strike. What I wrote about in the first part about the Ukrainian defense line. A weak point in the defense was found - a strike was carried out, which actually led to the destruction of the entire defense system in the area. The defense line ceased to exist without a bloody frontal attack.

So, what do you think of the inventors from our headquarters? But there are others. Working just west of Ocheretino. There, the inventors could not find the “bald spot,” but they found a weak spot in the defense. And they struck with a wedge right there. They struck. And then they acted unconventionally again. According to the same scheme described above.

That is, instead of continuing the offensive forward, they turned north. We carried out the same maneuver as at Novokalinovo. With the same result. Only the ukrofashists scuttled not to Arkhangelskoye, but to Novoaleksandrovka. But the Russians turned out to be agile here. On the shoulders of the enemy they burst into the southern outskirts of this village. Moreover, they managed to overwhelm the 100th Mechanized Infantry Brigade, which was sent to help, and forced the brigade to dig in in an open field.

A little bit about the future


Well, as always, a little about the prospects. The Russian army continues to advance; few people believe in a favorable outcome for Kyiv. Most analysts argue only about the timing of the capitulation. True, there are especially pessimistic ones who assume that Zelensky will be saved by the beginning of the third world war...

I don’t want to intrude into this debate today. Let's talk about something more mundane. About what we can do today to win. What is happening today on the main sectors of the front shows us that we can very well continue to advance at the pace that exists today.

This pace ensures quite comfortable conditions in the rear. Not only are the logistics capabilities of the rear preserved, but also quite serious protection is provided in the event of a counter-offensive. Little is written about this, but how well our engineers work! They just took a village or town, and on the flanks there is already a mini “Surovikin line” with dragon teeth and other... minefields.

Taking even small villages today has become a huge problem for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. You already know about the two operations, but somehow the message about the capture of another small settlement - Semyonovka (DPR) went unnoticed. Thus, we destroyed the defense line Tonenkoye - Orlovka - Semyonovka - Berdychi.

Overall, it seems to me that our goal is now moving further west. To the Karlovka area, more precisely, to the Karlovskoe reservoir. It is there, taking into account geography, that the most favorable conditions are for creating a new line of defense. This means that we are on our way there, as the song says. I don't think it's worth losing the initiative.

Due to the fact that the supply of equipment and weapons is in full swing, it is impossible to stop the offensive. You cannot give the enemy the opportunity to prepare a counterattack in a calm environment. And he will definitely be there. Zelensky needs a bloody nose, at least a little, but to win. The media will be able to spin this victory as a great victory over the Russians...

In general, our army now has a choice. Toretsk or Kurakhovo. I won't discuss which is preferable. This is a matter for commanders. The decision must always be made by the commander. As is responsibility. Our commanders show their level every day. They show how to defeat enemies with skill, not numbers...

By the way, did you notice Syrsky’s maneuver when Novokalinov smelled of something fried? I'm talking about the transfer of the 100th brigade to help. Not interested in the question of why the commander so easily transfers formations from place to place? This is the best indicator, a purely speculative conclusion without real confirmation that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have reserves.

Syrsky keeps them for a “rainy day”... or in case of a strong-willed decision by the most supreme strategist from Bankova... You can expect anything from him...

    It’s too early for you, author, to start talking about capitulation; it’s still so far away! Believe more in the agreement.
    As for the Russian army, everything is as per the canons of the Great Patriotic War; in the second and third years of the war, the army learned to learn to fight, as it was.
    But there’s nothing you can do about it, an army that hasn’t fought for decades, not counting local conflicts, and when the army is controlled by a bunch of mummers, our wars have been washed in blood, but now a lot has changed and will still change.
    Glory to Russia, Glory to the Russian army, Glory to Russian weapons.

      The Ukrainian defense is still far from collapsing; rather, it is stretching and breaking through, so far at the tactical level, but there are good prerequisites for these breakthroughs to develop into operational-tactical ones. Now the main thing is to destroy experienced and motivated enemy fighters, because a forcibly mobilized contingent of dill will not be able to hold the front for long, which will quickly roll to the west under our attacks. Here, on the outskirts, the only hope remains for the deployment of NATO troops.

        Vor Zusammenbruch der Front? – Selenskyj beruft Krisensitzung ein
        -
        berichtet unser mitteleuropa
        -
        Die Lage an der ukrainischen Front muss sich drastisch verschlechtert haben: Der ukrainische Präsident Wolodymyr Selenskyj rief nämlich eiligst seinen Generalstab ein – wie der britische Experte Alexander Mercouris laut „ria.ru“ berichtete.

        Und zwar um eine Durchhalte-Direktive um jeden Preis.

        Selenskyj hat den gesamten Generalstab einberufen und das Militär angewiesen, um jeden Preis Stellungen zu halten und sich nicht mehr zurückzuziehen.

        Mercouris wies zudem darauf hin: Die Situation für die ukrainischen Streitkräfte sei äußerst schwierig, da die russische Offensive an Dynamik gewinne.

        Nun soll auch der Westen, nach einer Reihe schwerer ukrainischer Rückschläge, Kiew dazu aufgefordert haben den Zusammenbruch der Front mit allen Mittelnzu stoppen.

      You can always throw hats. I’ve been hearing about the collapse of the Ukrainian Armed Forces front since 2023. Everything is collapsing and collapsing. We are one people with them and we have the same quirks. Just as they overcome us, so we defeat them. But in fact, the joint beating takes place almost within a 10-15 km area.

    So I went to Google Maps to see what was going on with the front. From the last village that was taken by the Russian Armed Forces to Avdeevka, which was taken more than two months ago, it’s only a 3-hour journey. No, not by car. On foot, CARL!
    That is, all these “rapid breakthroughs” and “mass advances” have clear numbers of +- 20 kilometers.
    And they are based only on the fact that in the path of the RF Armed Forces there are mainly “farms of three houses”, which are very difficult to defend in conditions of total enemy superiority in aviation. Where the RF Armed Forces come up against urban development, it begins to stand still, as in Chasovoy Yar. It’s scary to imagine how long they will stand near Slavyansk and Kramatorsk (if they reach it).
    I don’t even want to google how many hours it took the Red Army to do what the Russian army has now done in 2 months.
    But apparently people are hogging it. The front is about to collapse. Victory is near.

      Well, the Red Army suffered some losses, but now they seem to be taking care of people. If you organize another mob, the economy may be shaken, because they hire hard workers, not “monkeys” and not rich geeks, but those who benefit the economy. So they take care of what they have, and I have a hard time believing that we will reach some western borders, for which they are furiously minus pence, this won’t happen, we’ll crack.

      People, on the contrary, believe that there is nowhere to rush, given that the war is actually going on with NATO, one can see that the further we go, the less unity in this alliance.... In addition, the further we go, the cleaner our ranks... And a quick bloody victory over Ukraine is a heap non-military problems with occupied territories + a clash with Poland, Germany....

The entire world economy is 80% tied to dollars. Well, NATO is an instrument of the amers, and the collapse of NATO will only occur with the outbreak of a nuclear war.

            This is the first time I hear that there was a Kuusinen government in Finland. As the Ryti government was, it remained so, right up to 1944. The Kuusinen government should have been in Finland, but somehow the unfamous Finnish War did not go quite according to plans (doesn’t it remind you of anything? But it does remind you very much, only there the leadership of the Red Army made a lot of conclusions , much faster than someone much later) and Kuusinen in 1940 headed only .. the Karelian-Finnish SSR (there some Finnish taken lands were added to the Karelian ASSR, after all, the USSR received something from that war). Desired Victory there as it didn’t smell very good (see history textbooks) And the Baltic states ceded to the USSR in 1940 as a result of a completely different treaty from 1939. , with a completely different “partner” And that “partner” attacked in 1941, largely also because he saw the extremely weak organization of the Red Army at the first stage of the Finnish War (at the second stage it was better, but the partner considered it unimportant). And he was not completely wrong. , alas.

          Where does the information about 0,1% come from? Let’s take the Patriot air defense system; 8-10 sets of them have been delivered, according to various sources. Do you want to say that there are about 10000 sets of them (Patriot) throughout NATO? And so with all types of weapons (there are dozens of aircraft, so far only Soviet-built). I especially smiled about the ones in service military personnel. Yes, there are plenty of them in xoxland, starting with instructors and operators of the same Patriots and ending with mercenaries who are the same “vacationers”.

There are much fewer Patriots, so the percentage is not even 00.1, but probably 00000.1.. Is it full of NATO military? I saw the corpses of mercenaries and their documents, I saw captured foreigners, English speakers and other trash.

My opinion is hardly more than 100-150, so where do your numbers come from then? Well, now about the “vacationers”. Did the USSR participate in the Spanish Civil War? Officially, no, but there were hundreds of military personnel (vacationers) there, only at that time they were officially dismissed from the ranks of the Red Army and this happened in absolutely all wars and everyone understands everything perfectly well, only some require documents.

              Good afternoon, you are missing the most obvious thing. All victories (mostly at sea) of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are connected only with the NATO infrastructure; there is a huge difference between a division and communications with satellite reconnaissance, etc. of the West. And just an abstract division of the Ukrainian Armed Forces without NATO support. And the Russian Federation is in a vulnerable situation in this situation, since it has not yet demolished all these satellites.

        I don’t understand this tactic: “There’s no hurry, we need to take care of people.” This, in my opinion, is the same as stretching out the time of a surgical operation for humane reasons. Delaying military operations allows the enemy to build and equip new fortified areas, mobilize, transfer reserves from one direction to another, and most importantly, deliver Western aid and weapons to Ukraine. And all this does not reduce the losses of the attacking side, but only increases them. Plus, added to this are the so-called non-combat losses, which are inevitable in any war. A protracted, prolonged war increases the burden on the economy, and if we take into account that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are shelling Russian regions, then Russia suffers not only material losses, but also pays with the lives of its citizens. Well, the moral and psychological factor, slow progress and lack of visible successes demoralizes their own population and army and strengthens the faith of Ukrainians and their Western patrons in the possibility of defeating Russia by military means. No, well, the benefits from such a strategy are so-so.

      Now compare the length of the front, the number of troops and their strength.

    The Russian army is trying to occupy as much enemy territory as possible, taking advantage of the fact that the Ukrainian Armed Forces lack ammunition, especially 155 mm caliber. After agreeing on a $61 billion US aid package, weapons were sent to Ukraine. What the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be capable of should be looked at no earlier than the end of May or the beginning of June.
    The longer the NWO continues, the more support Ukraine’s allies provide. It is better not to compare the military-economic potential of the allies of Ukraine and Russia.
    According to Western estimates, the Russian defense industry will reach the peak of its production capabilities around the beginning of 26.
    I conclude: everyone is preparing for a long conflict, with the goal of depleting both the human and military-industrial potential of Russia.
    Ukraine’s task for the 24th year is to inflict irreparable losses on Russia of approximately 1400 people per day.

    To win this campaign, Russia needs a drastic and non-trivial decision that will change the balance of power. Realizing this, the West constantly throws out the topic of the use of nuclear weapons in the media. But the solution must be different, of course. Maybe in fact the operation is in Kharkov. Otherwise, this is a strategic impasse in which we will sooner or later be exhausted. Europe is not worried about Ukrainian losses, and the costs are not critical for their economy

    ICH LESE GERADE: Vor Zusammenbruch der Front? – Selenskyj beruft Krisensitzung ein

    Die Lage an der ukrainischen Front muss sich drastisch verschlechtert haben:

    Der ukrainische Präsident Wolodymyr Selenskyj rief nämlich eiligst seinen Generalstab ein – wie der britische Experte Alexander Mercouris laut „ria.ru“ berichtete.

    Und zwar um eine Durchhalte-Direktive um jeden Preis.

    Selenskyj hat den gesamten Generalstab einberufen und das Militär angewiesen, um jeden Preis Stellungen zu halten und sich nicht mehr zurückzuziehen.

    Mercouris wies zudem darauf hin: Die Situation für die ukrainischen Streitkräfte sei äußerst schwierig, da die russische Offensive an Dynamik gewinne.

    Nun soll auch der Westen, nach einer Reihe schwerer ukrainischer Rückschläge, Kiew dazu aufgefordert haben den Zusammenbruch der Front mit allen Mitteln zu stoppen.

    Scott Ritter: Ukrainian desertieren

    So wolle ukrainische Einheiten in einigen Abschnitten dazu übergegangen sein, vom Schlachtfeld zu fliehen – wie Scott Ritter, ein Ex-US-Geheimdienstoffizier auf dem YouTube-Channel “Judging Freedom” gekannt gab:

    Ukrainische Einheiten lassen einfach ihre Waffen fallen und fliehen in einigen Bereichen der Frontlinie, andere ergeben sich einfach und diejenigen, die bleiben, sterben.

    As long as the other side responds to the offer to surrender in pure Russian - the Russians do not surrender!, the offensive will proceed at a snail's pace.

To do this, we need to produce 100 shells per year, fifty thousand drones per month, and the rest of the list. Then we will win within a couple of months. Only then will we not be attacked, only then will we avoid the Third World War.

    This is not a war, but a SVO. A conflict of attrition, or rather even extermination of the fascist “Ukrainian nation,” which was formed as the “Anti-Russia project.”
    And it is going quite successfully, since the Ukrainian military commissars have to force recruits to the front with a stick, and the “cannon fodder” that is produced is no longer of very high quality.
