The activity of the RF Armed Forces in the Nikolaev and Kherson directions does not allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to go on the offensive


Over the past few weeks, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been trying to go on the offensive in the Nikolaev and Kherson directions. However, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, being active at the front, do not allow them to do this. This is clearly evidenced by today's operational report from the Russian Ministry of Defense for the previous day.


The department’s report says that Russian artillery, aviation and missile forces continue to deliver massive strikes against enemy units and reserves. As a result of the fire impact, the 24th and 28th mechanized, as well as the 46th airmobile brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost in the Nikolaev and Kherson regions up to 500 servicemen killed and wounded and over 40 units of various equipment.

Near the settlements of Olgino in the Kherson region, Kalinovka, Murakhovka, Novorossiysk in the Nikolaev region, the command posts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were hit. In general, along the entire line of contact in Ukraine, 7 launchers, 116 areas of concentration of personnel and equipment of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as well as 42 enemy artillery units were hit.

Over the past day, Russian air defense systems shot down 6 UAVs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine near the settlements of Snigirevka and Ternovye Pody in the Nikolaev region, Maxim Gorky, Pyatikhatka and Chkalovo in the Kherson region, as well as Smeloe in the Zaporozhye region. In total, 12 Ukrainian drones were shot down in the NMD zone over the past day. In addition, 30 rockets were intercepted for M142 HIMARS and M270 MLRS launchers of 227 mm caliber, as well as Olkha (Ukraine) of 300 mm caliber near the city of Kherson, the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station and the village of Trudovoye in the Zaporozhye region.

    The reports say that the blitzkrieg smoothly turned into a positional war like WWI, when the armies sat in the trenches and hit each other with artillery.

      I don’t remember who said, and I can’t vouch for 100% compliance with the original, but still I’ll try to reproduce ...

      Sitting on the defensive, wars are not won

        30 missiles were intercepted for M142 HIMARS and M270 MLRS launchers of 227 mm caliber, as well as "Alder" (Ukraine) of 300 mm caliber near the city of Kherson, the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station and the village of Trudovoe in the Zaporozhye region.

        And who will destroy the launchers themselves? "Uncle" ?

        If a draft has suddenly formed in your apartment, and you constantly catch a cold, then it is probably logical not to treat a runny nose, but to eliminate the draft?

    3. If they are at war, and victory is dragging on, the weapon becomes dull and the tips break off; if the fortress is besieged for a long time, the forces are undermined; if the army is left in the field for a long time, the state does not have enough funds.

    4. When the weapons become dull and the tips break off, the forces explode and the funds run out, the princes, taking advantage of your weakness, will rise on you. Let then you will have smart servants, after that you can do nothing.

    5. Therefore, in war they heard about success with its speed, even with the artlessness of its conduct, and have not yet seen success with its duration, even with the mastery of its conduct.

    6. It has never happened before that the war lasted for a long time and this would be beneficial to the state. Therefore, one who does not fully understand all the harm from war cannot fully understand all the benefits of war.
