Source: The decisive battle began in the Donbass


In the region of Severodonetsk and Lysichansk, Kyiv is additionally transferring units and military machinery. According to sources, the concentration of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this region may indicate the beginning of a decisive battle for the Donbass. Moreover, a serious advance of Russian troops in the Izyum direction is reported.


The Ukrainian authorities ordered the defense to be held in this direction and ordered the allocation of additional forces in the amount of 5 thousand military personnel and 300 pieces of military equipment. Reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and territorial defense units guarding the border with Belarus were sent here from the western part.

Western sources also say that Ukrainian troops in the Severodonetsk direction can get into an operational encirclement. In particular, the British services noted that Russian troops were intensifying their offensive in the area of ​​Izyum and Severodonetsk, trying to advance towards Slavyansk and Kramatorsk.

In addition, British intelligence confirmed the intention of the Russians to encircle Ukrainian troops in the Donbass and cut them off from reinforcements coming from the western regions of the country.

Meanwhile, on May 13, the Armed Forces of Ukraine shelled the cities of Donetsk and Yasinovataya and the village of Golmovsky with Grad MLRS rockets. The Ukrainian military also fired 16 shells of 122 mm caliber at populated areas.

    Our task now is not to allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to regroup, to deprive them of any maneuver and not to allow new units to freely relocate to the front line and pull up their equipment there, they need to be destroyed on the approaches, in the end, the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine need to be driven into a fire bag in which they will be systematically grind.

    According to Podolyaka, near Belogorovka, a Russian BTGr hit a fire bag. Practically destroyed.
    There is no loss in war. But, unfortunately, in this case the losses are too great.

      Probably - this is our common problem. As a result of three decades of "natural process" in all branches of management, professionalism has been replaced by personal dedication. The system is tuned for diligence, compliance with the requirements of legal documents and impeccable reporting. It may work like a clock, but this work brings almost no benefit. Probably - it slows down, except for unprofessionalism and ubiquitous corruption. When the survival of the country depends on its effectiveness, this system begins to bring harm. It turns out that these processes did not bypass the army either.

        This is true, but especially idiotic requirements, in a combat situation, to act not according to the situation, but strictly according to the instructions, for example, army aviation pilots are often forbidden to fly below 50 meters, you see, the instructions do not allow this, but what the hell can be instructions in a specific combat situation, especially taking into account the fact that the Stinger MANPADS just steadily detect their targets starting from a height of 50 meters.

        The quality of power does not correspond to the tasks that the war sets ..... These people call it a "special operation" ... they say you can sit straight on your ass and do nothing ... They will drive Russia into a coffin .... Eh, Putin .. ..... History gives you such a chance to clean out the 5th column, and you are yourself ..... You got better ..... In the future, everything will be handed over .....

          What did you think? That 20 years of corruption will not affect the army? Well, what the hell is the fifth column? If you think like that, then the entire population of Ukraine is Natsik.

          Why can’t anyone understand that Putin, in essence and throughout his life, is the main liberalist of Russia, that he does not protect the people of Russia, his task is to protect the Russian oligarchy from transnational corporations, which is why he said yesterday that he wants to negotiate with the Ukronazis, but here’s the problem - they they no longer want, but now they want only victory and capitulation of Russia.

      Of course, it is simply necessary to draw careful conclusions after this, of course, we all need patriotism, but they cannot cover up any kind of unprofessionalism, sloppiness, and maybe even deliberate wrecking, it has long been said that we need to recreate an analogue of SMERSH, only on a new technological level, in the army, too, not always and not everywhere everything is in order, this must be taken into account and appropriate measures taken in a timely manner, it is stupid and short-sighted not to learn from one's own mistakes, but to deny their presence is generally a crime, let's leave the hatred moods and start more realistically look at things.

        And what about SMERSH? This is military counterintelligence. It already exists and works, only now it is built within the framework of special departments, which does not change the essence. Actually, they were at 43, in my opinion, they were converted into SMERSH.

      And I talked to the military and the truth is much worse. And try to tell her. They will rather put you in prison, and not those "generals" who fight like that.

      Under Iosif Vissarionovich, several military experts could have been shot for this, and the strategists in the General Staff of the Russian Federation would also be "hanged" with medals.

        On the whole, I believe. Anufrienko has more balanced information. But Podolyaka gives more details. I looked through his information on the war with Georgia. Almost 100% reliable. As in Karabakh.

        Specifically for this episode. Detailed analyzes of these images appeared on the network. Surely, many have already looked at them. There are nuances, but everyone admits that the fighting at the crossing was fierce. And the losses of Russian troops here are significant. We are probably not talking about the defeat of the entire BTG, but there are losses.
        Losses of Russian troops are classified. Which is basically true. Ukraine reports about a thousand tanks and 20 among the personnel. The West (I think the Guardian) reports that Russia has lost 000% of the entire composition of the Armed Forces. I think it's all nonsense.
        The "average temperature in the hospital" most likely lies in the range of up to 5 personnel and about 000 tanks. Which is also a lot.

            They are hardly friends. Personally, I am not familiar with them. But they have positioned themselves as independent bloggers for many years. So far, their information is generally correct. They are wrong too. The same Podolyaki admits his erroneous forecasts. And I believe those who are not afraid to admit their mistakes.
            But forecasts are one thing, and the presentation of information is quite another.

        Podolyak, as well as Onufrienko, give information because of their knowledge. And this information is closer to the truth than any other.

    - Personally, I have already written a lot about the state of the quality of our RF Armed Forces, which are now conducting the GUS!!!
    - And especially about the lousy "formulation-cover" - "grind" (and how the local brainless brutes minus at the same time) !!!

    - Yes, even in the topic of May 10, 2022 17:31

    Why Ukraine moved from a dead defense to a counteroffensive

    - Namely :

    "And the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are calmly grinding Bandera."

    - Whom are they grinding?? - Did you grind a lot ??? This tongue can grind anything!
    - They came up with a lousy "formulation-cover" - "grind" !!! - And how parrots repeat !!!
    - And how much is left of our original grouping of the RF Armed Forces and the military formations of the LPR and DPR ??? - Khokhlam is constantly replenished; as well as the flow of weapons, fuels and lubricants, new artillery systems, MANPADS, MLRS (and they don’t run out of UAVs at all) and other things !!! - And everyone is mumbling about some kind of "grinding"! - Who, whom and where "grind" and continues to "grind" something ???

    - How easy and simple they began to flaunt this "formulation" !!! - I don’t want to cite my comments anymore as an example, in which I personally give an assessment to our military leaders of the RF Armed Forces and an assessment of the quality of professionally trained Armed Forces of Ukraine - everything is too tragic !!! - But it will be much worse if our military leadership does not take any measures to radically change the situation !!! - It seems that in our military leadership of the RF Armed Forces there are a lot of bunglers who should be stripped of their rank and brought to justice !!!

    - But, nevertheless - personally I am a "concrete" person and I always try to be quite objective!
    - And now it’s completely and absolutely incomprehensible to me - but how and with what did the APU strike at this our convoy of armored personnel carriers of the RF Armed Forces ???
    - Well, artillery fire cannot be that accurate, even if it is corrected! - Yes, and from artillery fire there, everything around should simply be plowed up and there should be many craters around from shell explosions!
    - Or the APU used shock UAVs !!! - So then - it should be a whole armada of UAVs, for which (to manage it) at least half a company of UAV operators and REP operators is needed !!!
    -Yes, and the destroyed column itself looks somehow "too old" - there is too little smoke and fire from the burnt equipment - when it was destroyed - just yesterday (or even earlier), or what ?! - Yes, and where did the wounded and the "two hundredth" go (it passed, or something - quite a lot of time until they were all taken away) ???
    - And this column itself looks like it (the column) did not move at all - but stood in its positions in this forest near the river! - Then her, what - Nazi saboteurs destroyed, or what ??? - It seems that the column was destroyed a few days ago (and they just kept silent about it)!
    - Too little specifics and too many questions!

      but how and with what did the Armed Forces of Ukraine deliver blows to this convoy of BTGr of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation?

      And this is the second. The main thing is that this is true and our losses are huge. And no one will answer for this. Because Putin does not abandon his people.

        - Yes, I agree with that!
        - Personally, I have already written about this many times! - About the fact that they do not remove our beginning of the General Staff; about the fact that they did not remove the commander-in-chief of the Black Sea Fleet after the death of the cruiser "Moscow"; about the fact that none of them - did not suffer punishment; about the fact that no one was ever held accountable for the failed actions in the Kharkov area; that no one is punished for the fact that all deliveries of military equipment for the Armed Forces of Ukraine - both by railway lines and by all other means - freely reach their "place of destination" and supply the Armed Forces of Ukraine at any point where the Nazis are conducting hostilities, etc. etc !!! - About the fact that an open betrayal is being committed at the top of the military leadership of our Armed Forces of the Russian Federation !!!

    Something similar to what is happening now in Ukraine already happened in 1905. Underestimation of the enemy (like, "we'll throw hats"), intelligence miscalculations, filthy support, icons were sent to the front instead of weapons (doesn't it remind you of anything?), The "ceremonial" fleet ...

    Kyiv is additionally deploying units and military equipment to the area of ​​Severodonetsk and Lysychansk

    So why the hell do they not block the delivery of reserves and military equipment?
    What prevents us from advancing from the north and south along the E40 Slavyansk-Bakhmut highway, thus finally closing the encirclement ring and providing ourselves with a transport highway to ensure the possibility of prompt transfer of reserves from the north and south direction and supply of troops.
