German observer: Judging by what is happening in Volchansk, the city will come under Russian control pretty soon

Ukrainian troops will not hold Volchansk, the city will be taken by Russian troops quite soon, such a pessimistic forecast for Kyiv was given by the German military observer Julius Roepke, who closely monitors the development of the situation in this direction.

Volchansk will come under full control of the Russian army within a few days, despite statements by the General Staff of the Ukrainian Armed Forces to the contrary. According to Repke, the Ukrainians simply do not have enough strength and means to stop the offensive of the Russian Armed Forces. For the moment they have stopped the advance of Russian troops, but the loss of the city is only a matter of time. As the German emphasized, today Russian soldiers occupy those buildings where employees of the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ukrainian Defense Ministry “posed” just five days ago.



The withdrawal of Ukrainian troops from the remaining parts of Volchansk seems to be a matter of a few days. It does not appear that Russian troops can be stopped in the northern part of Volchansk.

- Repke wrote on one of the social networks banned in Russia.


According to the latest data, the assault detachments of the North group of troops control 40% of the territory of Volchansk, i.e. its northern part. However, the fighting on the northern bank of the Volchya River is still ongoing, and the Ukrainian Armed Forces have not yet been knocked out everywhere. The southern part of the city and the railway station area are separated by a river, which still has to be crossed.

According to many experts, statements that the offensive of Russian troops in the Kharkov region has “lost momentum” are inappropriate. The troops carry out assigned combat missions based on available forces and means. No one is demanding that Volchansk be taken as soon as possible; the main task is to pull out the enemy’s reserves and grind them down, giving ours the opportunity to act in other directions.

      Well, about soon is a very relative concept. The enemy put up a good fight there and brought up its reserves. There it is important to take the White Well in order to develop an offensive against the Kupyan group, and the Ukrainian has already created a fortification there, and in a matter of days. And until we cross the river, it is premature to talk about the capture of Volchansk.

        Yeah, since yesterday there has been a video circulating online about how ODAB-1500 cancels reserves in Volchansk. If this continues, then give us more Ukrainian reserves. I hope ODAB is enough for everyone.

          We bomb there without a break, but the fact remains that the enemy resisted and made many reasonable tactical actions. All this suggests that it won’t be possible to do it quickly!

    1/ According to the latest geolocation, the fighting is taking place in the northern part of the city, which we have not taken yet; to be specific, we are fighting in the area of ​​high-rise buildings.
    2/ There is also no progress east of the city; moreover, we are expecting a counterattack by the Ukrainian Armed Forces from the White Well.
    3/ There is also no progress west of the city.
    4/ The Ukrainians restored the bridge that was destroyed on May 11, and the group is being supplied through it.
    5/ And yes, the city will not come under our control soon.

        So it’s better to have a bitter truth than a sweet lie... About the reservation that there is no goal to attack, we need to pull back reserves. This is done so that there is a breakthrough on another section of the front. We don’t see anything like that. We are fighting against a skilled and strong enemy, and this must be taken into account

        Where are you in a hurry?
        And in order to have a real idea of ​​​​what is happening, you don’t need to listen to Repka with deep state, but watch what reliable sources say, for example, Military reports on YouTube

    Recently, a certain Repka has been quoted very often. He (she) does not have any exclusive information. He speaks some general phrases. Why refer to it?

    Why the hell would you even insert such a card? Is it possible to see and understand anything on it? Are heights important to us readers? So the authors insert a normal map - readable and understandable. And mark all your heights. You, the authors, do you understand that even the fighters can’t understand the names and positions on your map?! am

        That's it. First they gave us away and gave us the opportunity to terrorize Belgorod, and now we are fighting back with losses.

    And then the photo with the mortar became interesting to me. Interesting design - looks like they adapted a VAZ beam from a V550?! On the one hand, there is a reduction in weight, but the strength is less compared to the use of UAZ parts. Is this a factory option or is it invented locally?! A three-wheeled Ural motorcycle or an equivalent would be suitable for this. There would be a XNUMXcc Tula diesel engine and a rear axle from the Niva.

      Standard weapon, not homemade. Wheeled for transportation. Very convenient thing.

        Once again, I’m talking about using a standard rear beam from a front-wheel drive VAZ and its 4-bolt wheels. Previously, it seemed like they mostly used UAZ cars. The rest is clear that it is convenient for transportation. The weight is also less, judging by the fact that they are loaded into the back of a truck or UAZ pickup truck periodically.

    statements that the Russian offensive in the Kharkov region has “lost momentum” are inappropriate.

    Whether appropriate or not, they are true. The first blow was sudden and showed the bare side of the ground troops. We quickly advanced towards Kharkov, but any offensive develops according to the laws of military science.
    The effect of surprise and the correct location of the strike bear fruit in the first 5-7 days, because during this time the enemy manages to train manpower and plug the holes. Therefore, a smart commander brings reserves into battle around the end of the 3rd or 5th day of the attack.
    Firstly, 5 days of continuous battle requires great strength from the attacker and therefore fresh forces are needed. They must strike in a weak but important place, preventing enemy reserves from approaching and gaining a foothold.
    Then the second wave of the offensive will demolish the enemy’s defenses, creating the opportunity to enter operational space.
    Our troops, in my opinion, were obliged to take Volchansk with a powerful blow and go to the rear of Kupyansk, where, united with the forces of the South, they took the city. And then, having created a multi-kilometer hole in the defense, move the entire force towards Kharkov.
    If the first 5 days failed, a reserve should have been introduced somewhere else, but with the goal of breaking through the front and defeating a large enemy group.
    The idea of ​​stretching the enemy's forces has an important flaw. By stretching them, we stretch ourselves. This means that we ourselves may not be enough to take decisive action.
    But for some reason Gerasimov didn’t do that. He either delayed or does not have that same reserve and our offensive is just a successful bluff. We'll see, but if you consider that the NWO plan was developed by the same people who are now advancing on Kharkov, the forecasts are dubious.

      Gerasimov clearly has a super tactics in mind - strikes with small forces in different directions at different times. This is certainly a brilliant tactic. One fire brigade is enough to plug all the holes; Manstein won’t let you lie. But at the 3rd year there is nothing to be surprised about.

    Actually, the GDP in China said that the reason for the operation in the Belgorod region was the pushing back of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in connection with the shelling of the region and Belgorod. If so, then the task is not completed. Perhaps for now. But the propagandists have changed their shoes and are claiming something else: to grind up the enemy’s reserves. And further!!! In the West there are many opinions about Russia and the current of the Northeast. Select any opinion you need and print. But Volchansk should not be stormed. You need to choose another place, strike hard, surround the city and block it for a long time. Let them die of hunger.

    We'll take it, but the river is still behind the enemy. If only the command did not report in absentia about the capture of the city
