The Russian army began to close the first "cauldron" in the Donbass


Russia plans to encircle the grouping of Ukrainian armed forces in the area of ​​Severodonetsk and Lysychansk, thus closing the first “boiler” in the Donbass, as pro-Ukrainian telegram channels report with concern.


Thus, the Russians are intensifying the shelling of positions near the line of contact of the parties near these cities. At the same time, Russian units use mortars, cannon artillery and aviation equipment, preparing for the offensive.

The ultimate goal of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in this direction may be to encircle the grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, numbering several thousand military personnel. There are 24 km left before the closing of the ring.

Meanwhile, according to the head of the DPR, Denis Pushilin, all the nationalists captured at Azovstal will soon appear before a tribunal to be held in the Donetsk People's Republic. We are currently working on its bylaws.

Prisoners from Azovstal are being held on the territory of the DPR. An international tribunal is also planned to be organized on the territory of the republic

Pushilin said in an interview with Interfax.

Earlier, 2439 Azov militants (an extremist organization banned in Russia) laid down their weapons at the Mariupol enterprise. According to Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu, the plant has been completely liberated from Ukrainian armed formations.

    The boiler is good. But in no case should one discount the possibility of counter strikes by the Banderlogs east of Popasnaya. A very dangerous "bottleneck" was formed there, only about 6 km wide with a potential oncoming boiler. It would be much safer to level the line of contact east of Mironovsky, and only then seriously take on the cauldron north of Popasnaya.

    They are trapped, but you must move carefully to avoid their counterattacks.

    about the boiler that they write about here, it is not possible in the near future, but it almost turned out to clamp the APU in Svetlodarsk. Although it seems to me that they will be allowed to go out there. Considering that the topic of fighting in this area is not particularly pedaled, I think the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will quietly slip away from Svetlodarsk, keeping the city intact for Donbass ..

    I personally get goosebumps from this boiler. There are a lot of people who are not indifferent to me left. I don't even know what to say about this. hi

      And where did you get the idea that all 15 thousand soldiers are ukrofascists there? Many voluntarily went to defend their homeland, whatever it was, someone was called up or caught through military registration and enlistment offices, even in the Donbass and Kharkiv region, and many of them were loyal to Russia before the start of the war, and someone is loyal even now, dreaming, so that they will be "beaten" as soon as possible.

        we all already heard this, in 1945, what kind of intigen-liberal lisping ...... if the enemy does not surrender, they destroy him, they all had the opportunity to evade the draft, desert, surrender, shoot the ukrofascist standing nearby, they chose to shoot at civilians and our soldiers-liberators, death to the ukro-fascist invaders! the enemy will be defeated! victory will be ours! Forward to the west! We are Russian God is with us!

          And who do you call the enemy, Ukraine or Ukrainians? Who do you want to destroy, everyone? Then why are you better than them? After all, there are also many nationalists in Russia, are you not one of them by any chance? ..and it really hurts your slogans to theirs, the Nazis are similar, on the one hand, on the other. Putin himself has repeatedly stated that:

          According to the President, Russia did not quarrel with Ukraine. “We have not quarreled with Ukraine, we have diverged views with those who are in power in Ukraine today. And Ukraine, the Ukrainian people, as it was our fraternal people, will remain for centuries,” he said.

            a significant part of the inhabitants of the so-called Ukraine understands that they are Russians, but another significant part of the inhabitants of this our territory is poisoned by fascist propaganda and is dangerous, it can be re-educated, but this is a long and difficult process, therefore the armed part of these bodies must be destroyed by bullets, missiles, axes, saws and with iron threshers ... you are again trying to liberally compare our liberator soldiers who stand for the people for the truth and ..... damned traitors of the Russian world = Ukrofascists who bought into Western cookies and bombed the peaceful cities of Donbass for 8 years, either approved of such fascist bombings or looked indifferently ... I don’t feel sorry for all these fascists, but I worry about every Russian soldier = hero

              But these are all your wishes, but in fact ours are pulling out wounded Ukrainian soldiers from the battlefield, treating them in hospitals, prisoners live in normal barracks and eat normally, watch our broadcasts. The commander of Azov was given a call to his wife, she told the press. Russians are not animals, but there are characters among ours ... Have you ever served in the army? The rhetoric is like that of a warrior from Tanki ru ... It’s just that the tankmen from the movie OZ came to mind.

                Something is wrong with your head.
                During the battle, our soldiers stop fighting and start to take out the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the battlefield?
                Under the fire of their own and the Armed Forces? When it is not known whether our wounded were evacuated or not?

                  it is clear that he is trying to push through the idea of ​​some kind of liberalism, and these universally forgiving people are always against the truth, against punishing criminals, of course, our soldiers sometimes save ukrovoyak, those who surrendered, for example, our army will save civilians if possible, but no mercy for armed ukrofascists!

    In fact, even the Russian Defense Ministry, Donetsk and Luhansk do not announce the size of the AFU group north of Popasnaya. You seem to know a little more?

      You can grind at least all the APU. But every dead UAF member has a mother, a father, possibly a wife, children, sisters, brothers.
      Having thrashed 15 APU, we will get 150 citizens of Ukraine that are definitely not loyal, but hostile to us.
      This does not fit into the idea of ​​liberation and the transformation of Ukraine into a state loyal to us. Or we must abandon this idea and admit that we are conquering them. Or to allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to quietly shed from the boilers, minimizing their losses, while reducing their combat capabilities.

        enable the APU to quietly shed from the boilers, minimizing their losses

        And what did someone not give earlier, before the formation of the boiler, to shed from the APU? Yeah, how things got bad - let us slip away. To be able to stand on another frontier. No really - grind everyone into dust. If you want to live, if you don't want to fight the Russians, surrender or desert.
        And nothing else. Don't look for idiots here.

    And where did you get the idea that they were all driven to the front under the threat of execution? Dobrokhotov there full-full. And if life is dear to them, let them think with their own head. And a bad head, as you know ..... They want to become fertilizer, let them behave like sheep in front of the slaughterhouse. Looking in wonder at the new gate. If you are able to distinguish between the behavior of General Denikin in the Second World War and his colleague, General Krasnov, then you yourself will understand what it means to be a patriot, and what it means to be a traitor. Think and understand why one was reburied with honor in Russia, and the second was hanged by a court verdict.
