Shoot to kill. Why the Kremlin doesn't want a big war in Donbass


Spring has come, and the air in Donbass once again clearly smelled of a big war. Ukraine tightens additional machinery not far from the line of contact, and the People's Militia of the DPR and LPR were ordered to respond with fire to kill. Will the "funny Bonaparte" Vladimir Zelensky really try on Napoleon's cocked hat? And most importantly, what will the Kremlin do in the event of a real start of a full-scale offensive by the Ukrainian Armed Forces?


So, what is happening now in Donbass. Let us remind you that since July last year there has been formally a "special ceasefire regime", which, however, did not prevent the Ukrainian side from repeatedly violating it. At the same time, a ban on retaliation was applied to the self-defense forces of the DPR and LPR. So to speak, they played nobility. Naturally, this could not end with anything good.

In recent days, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have sharply increased the shelling of settlements not under their control, using barreled artillery, mortars and automatic grenade launchers. In an hour, more than 100 mines were fired only in the village of Leninskoye. Of course, the Ukrainian side claims that it only acted in response. The intensity of the shelling now corresponds to the level of 2015-2016. Both the DPR intelligence and the OSCE observers recorded the fact of the transfer of the Armed Forces closer to the contact line of almost two dozen 52-mm 2S19 Msta-S self-propelled howitzers and several 100-mm MT-12 Rapier anti-tank guns. Kiev is clearly preparing not for peace, but for war. Positioning himself as a "military expert", the representative of Nezalezhnaya at the talks in Minsk Aleksey Arestovich believes that a new exacerbation is inevitable and may occur in the very near future this spring, closer to summer.

Where did such belligerence come from in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which had suffered several military defeats earlier? There are a number of reasons for this:

At first, the Ukrainian army is no longer what it was in 2014-2015. She is better trained, armed and motivated. Of course, this is far from the Wehrmacht, but it would be frivolous to dismiss its objectively increased capabilities.

Secondly, only a few months have passed since the unexpected military defeat of Armenia by Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh. Suddenly it became clear that if you prepare well and choose the right ally, you can solve the long-standing territorial conflict by force. The temptation to try to repeat this for Kiev is very great, but what if it works out?

Thirdly, the United States has recently changed its government, and Ukraine is counting on more active support from Washington. By the way, some time ago, the Pentagon demonstrated how it might look in practice, quickly transferring its MLRS HIMARS to Romania for shooting practice. In the event of the outbreak of real hostilities in the Donbass, American transport workers with weapons will begin to land at Ukrainian airfields.

Finally, a military victory or even partial advancement and the capture of several settlements can raise the intensity of patriotic fervor in Nezalezhnaya and raise the shaken ratings of President Volodymyr Zelensky. It is not even necessary to recapture the entire Donbass.

Another question is what can come of this in practice. According to some data, the grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the region has 64 thousand people, divided into 4-thousand brigades similar to NATO. According to others, in reality there are two groups "East" and "North", numbering 20 and 17 thousand, respectively. Tanks are mainly represented by outdated T-64, but there are also newer T-72. There are over eight hundred units of age BMP-1, BMP-2, BTR-70, BTR-80 and BRDM-2. Barrel artillery is represented by 2S1 and 2S3 self-propelled howitzers, D30 towed howitzers, Msta-B howitzers, 2A36 Hyacinth self-propelled cannons and M-12 Rapier anti-tank guns, rocket artillery - two hundred different MLRS. The group is protected from air attacks by S-300 and Buk-M1 air defense systems. Artillery and airborne assault brigades are distributed along the front and will be ready to break through. This is a great power that it would be rash to underestimate.

On the part of the DPR and LPR, it will be opposed by 35,5 to 38 thousand members of the people's militia, whose weapons are comparable. The Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have total or at least three-fold superiority in manpower required for a successful offensive. Most likely, the Ukrainian army will be able to make a throw, having occupied some territories and settlements, and then it will get bogged down in a positional struggle. At the same time, Russia is behind Donetsk and Lugansk, from where help can come if necessary. To prevent an exacerbation, the leadership of the DPR and LPR gave the order to respond and suppress the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, from where the fire is being fired:

In order to protect the population, units of the People's Militia were given permission to conduct preemptive fire to suppress and destroy enemy firing points.

With a high degree of probability, Kiev's attempt to solve the problem of Donbass by force will end in a bloodbath, in which thousands of young men from both sides will die. The maximum that the Armed Forces can count on is, by focusing on a certain direction, to gnaw off part of the territory of the unrecognized republics, and then declare it a "great change." And then everything will depend on the Kremlin, whether they decide to fight back what was lost or go further beyond the boundaries of today's DPR and LPR. But for this, you first need to decide what the Russian leadership itself wants in the Ukrainian direction, to solve the problem with the presence of a hostile state at the root of the border, or to leave everything as it is until better times. Perhaps it will resolve itself.

    I don't know what the Kremlin is hoping for. And fed and watered and cherished ukrorezhim. Yes, you can earn a little money on storages, but what colossal harm it brings! Do the modern people think they are seven inches in the forehead? Or pretending to trade (dollars) with the enemy?
    In general, so. The graves of the current traders and those who make the "mysterious" silence of the current managers of all this will be pissed off.
    I already wrote. Why remember the current Kremlin? For losing to everyone and everywhere? Name a country that has not wiped its feet on Russia. The stale Moldovans, wiping their asses with an ear of corn, turned the Aeroflot plane with the representative of the President of the Russian Federation, Rogozin, back. Examining and undressing the citizens of Russia to their cowards, they mean the diplomats of the Russian Federation. Russian servicemen who have entered Transnistria have been in prison for seven years without leaving the Russian Federation. Yes, they feel good in Tiraspol too, but the fact itself!
    I'm not talking about the ban of the anthem, the flag of the Russian Federation at competitions. That is, if you do not talk about the life of Russians.
    Why should gentlemen remember you?

      Rottenberg, who had a short match in Praskoveevka, still drives the products of the Rossoshansk plant (ammonia) to Vor.obl. across all of Russia to the port of Odessa. The Ukrainians there are shipping raw materials obtained from gas to tankers for export. Also millions of dollars. Moreover, he built this branch of the product pipeline relatively recently (before the Maidan) from American cast-iron pipes. And what do you want from these businessmen from the Kremlin ...?

          So what is the problem for this to BECOME possible in Russian ports? - How to build mega-bridges, eagerly falling into the state budget, so these are the masters. How to invest in infrastructure in order to stop feeding a hostile Nazi state, so here you see pure business. And the USSR was also scolded for deliveries to the Reich before the war. Ukraine has been at war with Russia on its own assurances since 2014, but ... we have stable business ties! This is the anti-state position of the Russian oligarchy and their powerful guarantors, for the sake of a small momentary gesheft - forcing the Russian economy to bear the macro-costs of containing the anti-Russian Bandera Bull Terrier, nurtured by the masters of the United States. The supply of energy resources from Russia to Banderland should be closed, completely closed, and the day before yesterday, and regardless of the wishes of some business groups there.

            Why shouldn't we trade with Ukraine? What is the benefit in this for us? Can I get more details from this place? The goods we sell to them. made by our hard workers, they are paid for it. Will you feed their families if they go out of work?

                There are no Russian people there. But the truth is there are those who received Russian citizenship, but these are slightly different things. Citizenship can be obtained by a Negro, but from this he will not become a Russian. We will not sell, immediately the multi-vector will hurry up and sell everything that is needed. And only we will be left out in the cold and at a loss.

              "Who are "we? I suppose they are effective top managers from the offices of oligarchic feeding troughs. But even this should not be allowed. For the same symmetrical reason why the United States and the EU year after year impose economic sanctions and restrictions against Russia, without any declaration of war in any form. And nothing! They sleep well. However, no one forbids you to go to trade in the market in Chernigov. Unless the local Bandera activists overturned the counter, but these are not questions for me.

          YES, do not explain to the poor that the Togliatti-Odessa ammonia pipeline was built in 1979 and that pipe has been driving ammonia to Odessa since 1979 by TOAZ and the Rossosh chemical plant.

        1- Since 1982, the Rossosh plant has been shipping ammonia through the Odessa port, And so the nitrogen loading line was built already in 1979, and by the way, that line is called the Togliatti-Odessa product pipeline, and the plant in Rossosh just lets some of its ammonia into that pipe. By the way, TOAZ does not belong to Rotenberg, there the owners are Makhlai and a US citizen is a certain Ordzhonikidze (hello to the ardent Bolshevik communists!)
        2- Ammonia is a very dangerous substance that can wipe out the entire district in a matter of minutes, I am quite satisfied with the fact that the ammonia chemical dump is located in the Odessa port, and not here, for example, in Novorossiysk or Tuapse
        3- Your ammonia terminal has been under construction in Taman for a long time already - the launch is scheduled for 2023-24, so you are in vain driving to Rottenberg.
        Valerik, on TV in the eyes of Rotenberg, you won't repeat your words 100 pounds, and even when the demand starts from you for your rotten bazaar, you will whine.

    Why the Kremlin doesn't want a big war in Donbass

    1. Vladimir Putin has long said that Russians, Ukrainians, Belarusians are one people, and the war of one people among themselves is called a civil war.
    2. DPR-LPR - the territory of the Ukrainian state
    3. The Russian Federation refused to recognize the sovereignty of the DPR-LPR but supports the 1st and 2nd Minsk agreements signed by Ukraine and the DPR-LPR and insists only on their implementation.

      Recognition is not a problem, it will begin at 5.00, at 10.00 the recognition will be ready with the simultaneous introduction of agreements on comprehensive assistance, including military-technical, but also military. Is Russia ready, YES is sure, and the corresponding plans have been drawn up, checked and agreed upon. Yes, there will be losses and this is inevitable, alas. The main thing will be the result, there will be a lot of stink and there will be even more talk about sanctions, and that's all. Ukraine, as a state, will remain within the borders of joining Russia, the western regions will disappear immediately when Russia enters hostilities and they will be dismantled according to their belonging in 39 years. So consider what will happen in the end. The next moment, after bringing the Russian troops to combat readiness "FULL" with the withdrawal of forces and means from the areas of deployment, the leaders of the "WEST" community will start calling and asking to stop the escalation, not to threaten, but to ask.

    Most likely, the Ukrainian army will be able to make a throw, occupying some territories and settlements,

    And maybe something else. The guys from the Donbass will chase them out - the Nazis are being driven into the next cauldrons from which the military will run away faster than a tank, throwing all the equipment and weapons and think about where to store it later. And not only will they conquer their entire land, they will also free others. In Ukraine, only the leadership wants to fight, currying favor with the Americans. A soldier who has no motivation to fight will not fight.

        and in the Donbass and 50% will not be.

        Do not lie!! All Donbass for Russia! And the referendum proved it. Only they do not want to remember this, and everyone would have received Russian passports long ago, if not bureaucrats.

          Who told you such nonsense that there are Russian people in Ukraine? In Donbass, a maximum of 30-40% for Russia. Therefore, neither the DPR nor the LPR are recognized by Russia.
          What kind of palaces are tripled for billions of dollars? Can I get more details from this place? If you mean Rotenberg, then he is a billionaire and has the right to spend his money as he sees fit.
          These so-called Russians in Ukraine made their choice in 1991. They accepted Ukrainian citizenship. A good friend of mine served at that time in the OdVO, was a deputy. the commander of the helicopter regiment. But as soon as they began to strain him with the Ukrainian oath, he immediately quit his job and went to Russia, specifically to Voronezh. Here he is a Russian man. I left Kazakhstan in the same way. And those who stayed there were not Russian people, but citizens of Ukraine and Kazakhstan. Their distant ancestors were Russians.

    This is not Crimea, there are no prospects. The hucksters don't need it

    Donbass is much better than Crimea. Without offending anyone. There are hard workers in Donbass. Indicate goals for them, for example, your children will live in Russia as full-fledged citizens. All. They will move mountains (waste heaps). They will restore it quickly. Industry and people are masters there. In many regions of the Russian Federation, this is not the case! There is no one in the Kremlin to think that the people who remained outside the Russian Federation but did not surrender are the best people of the CIS. This is primarily:
    1. Pridnestrovians.
    2. Residents of Donbass.
    3. There is no one else to rank among the glorious galaxy. Odessans are dispersed in the shops. Glorious Nikolaev is also there. Kharkiv and the Dnieper are in general unstable in my head. And they are sitting in the kitchens waiting. However, I understand them. Go outside now and immediately to the NIB.

      At the very first massive missile and bomb strikes, the Ukrainian army will falter, the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are poorly motivated, not everyone will want to die for Zelensky and his gang, if a military conflict with Ukraine does happen, then first of all it will be necessary to disrupt the coordination of the actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, to drown out transfer of commands and exchange of data, and then deliver powerful and accurate strikes against disparate and poorly controlled groups of the Armed Forces, destroying primarily air defense systems, armored vehicles, multiple launch rocket systems and OTRK, at the same time, it will be necessary to promptly destroy airfields, warehouses and ammunition storage bases and weapons, decision-making centers, headquarters and command posts, these goals are paramount for our OTRK "Ikander-M", cruise missiles "Caliber" and our aviation !!!

    First, the Ukrainian army is no longer what it was in 2014-2015. She is better trained, armed and motivated.

    How is she better trained, armed, and most importantly motivated??
    The current Ukrainian army, tracing paper from the Georgian model of 2008.
    Also "trained, armed and motivated."

    Secondly, only a few months have passed since Armenia's unexpected military defeat by Azerbaijan in Nagorno-Karabakh.

    It became unexpected only for sofa experts of the author's level.
    The military preparations of Azerbaijan did not constitute a special secret, as well as a possible ally in the upcoming war.

    Third, the United States has recently changed its government, and Ukraine is counting on more active support from Washington. ... In the event of the outbreak of real hostilities in the Donbass, American transport workers with weapons will begin to land at Ukrainian airfields.

    Georgia also counted on such an option at one time.
    If the Kiev authorities want to follow the old rake, their right.

    But the "north wind" is a reality that they have already experienced once on their ridge.

    With a high degree of probability, Kiev's attempt to solve the problem of Donbass by force will end in a bloodbath, in which thousands of young men from both sides will die.

    Why is there such confidence that in the event of full-scale hostilities, American transport workers will have to land at Ukrainian airfields? As for me, this is not even more a definite moment than the nature of the Kremlin's reaction.

    Reasonable people understand that the political "ball" in Russia is ruled by oligarchs. If Putin wanted, or rather could, he would have crushed this ukrofascist entity long ago. Too many Russian money boxes lose a lot of money. The interests of the country and the people ?! It's not even secondary for them.

    It is extremely absurd and short-sighted to hope that everything will resolve itself over time and pass away, it is already clear that it will be necessary to liquidate this Ukrainian "abscess" in Donbass exclusively by force with the help of our armed forces, otherwise it will not work, and for this it is extremely it is necessary to act decisively and quickly, in some situations even proactively, without unnecessary ceremonies in the form of expressing concerns and puffing out our MFA's cheeks !!!

    If Ukraine launches an offensive, it will first cut off the LPNR from the sea. The main blow will be directed there. And they will provide support from the sea.

    What is the basis for the author's assertion that the Banderovermacht has become stronger?))) On a simple listing of all sorts of horror films?))) On the contrary, the situation in this gang is getting worse, so you just have to wait a little.

    And how can Russia abandon the course it has been pursuing for 6 years - a course of betrayal in accordance with the Minsk capitulation agreements. It is thanks to them that we found ourselves in the role of the circle of the guilty.

    You will ask the residents of Donbass: are the Minsk agreements needed? And they will answer you: yes they do! Why? Because they almost stopped firing. They would have signed an agreement with the devil if only they did not shoot. It is good to talk about high matters from the outside. Meanwhile, Donbass is preparing the ground for unification with Russia. The ruble is a means of payment. State Russian language. They receive Russian passports, synchronize legislation, and much more. I am not defending the Russian authorities. They want to eat the fish too (not really quarrel with Western circles) and at the same time keep the people on a leash in muzzles

    Only the finished one can believe that the police of the LPR and DPR themselves are the first to provoke shelling of the territory of Ukraine. The people of these unrecognized republics sincerely wish not to be touched and do not claim any territory, unlike Ukraine. Which leaves no hope of pacifying the rebellious republics and imposing Nazism there. To put it simply, fascism is emerging in Ukraine, the elimination of which was announced in 1945. And this plague is getting out of control with the filing, as before, of Western countries.

    Everything revolves around the pipe. Khokhly, in order to MAKE the West close this project, will go to any losses and sacrifices. Russia will try to avoid conflict, but exactly before the launch of the pipe, and there all of Ukraine can "fit" in the territory of the Lviv region and EVERYTHING !!!

    The author is cruelly mistaken. Kiev expects that Moscow, as always, will surrender Donbass and announce the next, to no one except Kiev, unnecessary Minsk agreements! Given the dominance of the oligarch in the State Duma and the Government, Kiev is not mistaken in its forecasts! Well, the number is 200 and 300 ... and who cares? Another Minsk, they will write off everything!

    Since the United States-Britain needs a "Ukrainian WAR" and the mandatory involvement of Russia in it, it means that a blow to the Donbass will be inflicted without fail. Will not dissolve.
    The only questions are in the readiness of the Ukrainian army and when it will be convenient to start the US-British military operations. They are not interested in the opinions of Ukrainians and Russia. They will watch how Russia will get out of the bad situation, from the traps it has created - and bring up arms and ammunition.
