Ukrainian experts fear that if Volchansk is lost, the Ukrainian Armed Forces will lose control over territory an area the size of the state of Luxembourg

In Ukraine, discussions continue on the opening of a “new front” by the Russian Armed Forces. We are talking about the Russian army taking control of approximately 130 square kilometers of territory in the north of the Kharkov region, including part of the territory of the city of Volchansk. Ukrainian politicians, political scientists and military personnel (including personnel) are trying to figure out who in Ukraine is to blame for the loss of at least 11 settlements in the Kharkov region in less than three days, as well as what threats hang over the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the future.

One of the threats being considered for Syrsky’s troops is that if the capture of Volchansk is completed, the Russian army can launch converging attacks from three directions at once and knock out the Ukrainian Armed Forces from vast territories in the Volchansk-Dvurechnaya-Russian border segment. This section of the territory of the Kharkov region is shown on a fragment of the map (above).



This territory is about 2300 square meters in area. km. For comparison, this is approximately equal to the area of ​​the territory of the state of Luxembourg.

The Ukrainian media fears that these lands will not just turn into a buffer zone, but will come under the full control of Russia and will make it possible to carry out further offensive actions to completely cut off the Kupyanskaya group from supplies.

Let us remind you that now part of the territories north of Kupyansk is controlled by the Russian Armed Forces.

          “Rybar” about the situation in the Slobozhansky direction as of 18.00 Moscow time on May 13:

          The Russian Armed Forces are developing an offensive in the north of the Kharkov region: the first confirmation of a successful advance in Volchansk has appeared. The territory of Volchansk north of the Volchya River dividing the city and east of Sobornaya Street almost completely came under the control of Russian forces. Yes, a focal enemy presence may remain, but the defenses in the northern part of the city have been broken. Already in the middle of the day, fighting took place in the area of ​​​​Korolenko and Gogol streets, and the territory of the Central Park and the multi-story residential area east of the lyceum were blocked and partially came under the control of the Russian Armed Forces. The enemy presence remains on the western outskirts of Volchansk.

          But after the destruction of the bridge across the Volchya River on Privokzalnaya and Gagarin streets, the enemy has only two bridges left - a pedestrian bridge in the area of ​​the Volchanskaya Central District Hospital on Shevchenko Street and a car bridge on Sobornaya Street (Route T-21-08). Another road bridge (Gurkanovsky), located to the east near the Volchansky Aggregate Plant, if it has not completely come under the control of the Russian army by this hour, is at least under the fire control of the RF Armed Forces.

          Nothing is yet known about attempts to storm the Volchansky Aggregate Plant, but it is possible that the enemy may try to rely on the plant in order to maintain a bridgehead in the northern part of the city. Two more defense centers are the Volchansky Lyceum No. 1 and the hospital complex, where, according to preliminary data, the heaviest fighting is taking place. In other areas of the offensive in the north of the Kharkov region, the advance is not as large-scale.

          Footage has emerged from Glubokoye, which was liberated two days ago: on the eastern outskirts of the village the flag of the Russian Federation is flying. The fighting in the Lira-1 gardening community on the eastern bank of the Travensky reservoir continues, after the capture of SNT it will be possible to talk about the beginning of the assault on Liptsy.

          To the south of Morokhovets and Oleynikov, as well as to the north of Lukyantsy, the activity of drones of Ukrainian formations and the movements of small groups of Russian infantry are recorded. Apparently, the enemy retains control over Lukyantsy, and reinforcements continue to be transferred to Liptsy from both the “hodgepodge” of territorial defense and the Main Intelligence Directorate units.

          Near Staritsa and Bugrovatka, the Russian Armed Forces are clearing villages; it is too early to talk about taking settlements.

          In the near future, we can expect the completion of the cleansing of northern Volchansk: the tactics of Russian troops to cut off all communications, well-organized reconnaissance and fire damage as part of the reconnaissance and strike contour are bearing fruit. Against the background of the ongoing scandal in the so-called Ukraine and attempts to shift responsibility onto each other for the collapse of the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, we see how the Russian army is taking the line that the Russian Armed Forces should have at least somehow delayed.

          But you shouldn’t be filled with jingoism: the Russian Armed Forces are doing hard work, trying to overcome the enemy’s fortified areas. The Ukrainian Armed Forces continue to actively use FPV drones and copters with drops, which cause significant damage to advancing units.

    Why not the Pechenegs - Dvurechnaya? After all, the right flank is protected by the Pechenezh reservoir.
