The Russian army went on the offensive in the Zaporozhye direction in order to encircle the DPR

The RF Armed Forces are trying to seize the strategic initiative from the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Military correspondents and near-military publics report, referring to their sources in the ranks of the Russian army, located on the line of contact, that on November 16, the RF Armed Forces went on the offensive in the Zaporozhye direction. This became the fifth sector of the front, where the Russian armed forces began active offensive operations.

The publications note that the mentioned attack on the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine takes place in the area of ​​the settlement of Hulyaypole, where one of the most powerful fortified areas of the Ukrainian troops is equipped. The goal of the Russian army is to break through Ternovatoye to Vasilyevka for further access to Pavlograd in the Dnepropetrovsk region. This will make it possible to pincer the territories of the DPR and the Zaporozhye region that have not yet been liberated, as well as significantly disrupt the supply of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbass.

The Russian army went on the offensive in the Zaporozhye direction in order to encircle the DPR

This information was also confirmed by Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the office of the President of Ukraine. On the air of one of the broadcasts, he said that the plans of the Russian command probably include the encirclement of the AFU grouping in the Donetsk region. Arestovich also suggested that the RF Armed Forces could make another attempt to attack in the Kharkov region from the north to advance to the specified Pavlograd.

The functionary recalled that the strategy of the Russians was approximately the same at the beginning of the NMD, when they were already trying to act with “small and large pincers” in the spring, that is, they tried to create small and large encirclements of Ukrainian troops. Whether the Russians will be able to realize their plans this time is too early to say, he said.

Details are still unknown, but it can be quite unpleasant

- summed up Arestovich.

      Well, there will be no Arestovich, there will be another Someone and what will it change? Nothing! But he, unlike those in Russia in a similar "position", does his work GREATLY with this mouthpiece, and this should be recognized if approached impartially. And all sorts of reasons for this are given to him, however strange it may seem, precisely by the incomprehensible actions of the RF Armed Forces. If you look at the map of Ukraine, it seems strange that Ukraine has only Donbas and nowhere else to conduct military operations in order to actively create boilers. It's time to once again recall the experience of the Great Patriotic War and learn from the Wehrmacht and the Red Army. But for some reason they adopted the experience of PVM and hence the frontal assaults and marking time. Moving forward in a small section of the fighting is presented as a grandiose success, and leaving positions as a gesture of goodwill or regrouping. It seems that the authorities still will not understand that the people, in general, do not begin to understand more and more clearly that "something is missing in these cabbage soups." And already the information space was filled with talk about negotiations. Moreover, at all levels, from the Kremlin, to all kinds of commentators and propagandists from the same Kremlin and, as it were, independent. An incessant and ever-growing wave... There is a massive preparation for the SURDEN, and it seems to me, not on the terms of the Kremlin. Well, such small victories, this is a "carrot", so that the people get used to it, they say, Mogem, but do we need this? So we will save the soldiers and again, we will not offend the Abramovichs. There is puffing of the cheeks and nothing more. From the great army of the victor there is not even a pitiful shadow, although there is a warrior-hero, but there is NO power, strong and strong-willed, really independent! .... And here is another strange metamorphosis with the goals of the NWO. And there is nothing to be surprised at, now with indistinct for the people, but quite obvious for the "elite" - so as not to destroy their world greatly, well, if they started to scare, as it now turns out, actions and there will be a similar result.

        Well, there will be no Arestovich, someone else will appear

      Oh, here's something, but in the square there are such "arrestovichs" a dime a dozen! Here are five analogues that will not yield to him in such art and performing skills. Hlan, Gaidai, Gumenyuk, Ignat, And how many military experts have bred there, who know in advance all the steps of the General Staffs of both sides, and cannot be counted. Our Podolyaka is not even close to them.

      you, sir, blind man, the attack is going to its fullest, though in the other direction and the results for six months are impressive, starting with the abandonment of Kyiv and the well-deserved shame of Bucha, Izyum and other settlements that they left along with people who believed us and banners "We do not abandon our own "! do you think the last Chukchi Kolka and Vovka will not run away from us?
      1. Ignatov Oleg Georgievich (Oleg) 18 November 2022 02: 23
        Gren, but we really don’t leave OUR OWN, and if anyone stayed, they were waiting for their own. Here we waited. What is the problem? And from yours - us, who are they? Yes, and if all of our soldiers perished in Bucha, what would change for the local population? Wouldn't they be touched? So talk, talk, don't talk!

      That Arestovich accurately foresaw a lot of things, the war a couple of years before it, the timing, the direction of strikes, the occupation of the Kherson Armed Forces, etc. very accurately.

    Local battles are going on, the RF Armed Forces are on the defensive. There are no real victories on the part of the RF Armed Forces, there are surrenders of cities, there is an escape, all this has been going on for half a year. It is necessary to cheer up the people with a victory, so they come up with victories and strategic offensives.

    This adventure will someday be called a strange war, similar to a computer game, but in which a lot of people die, both the military on both sides and the civilian population, and so far there have been no victories on our side, we surrender more and more that they took a lot of blood for every meter!
    1. Ignatov Oleg Georgievich (Oleg) 18 November 2022 02: 48
      Gren, indeed, but they will not be called not someday, but right now! Isn't it strange for Ukraine to destroy its own population, its own schools, hospitals, enterprises in the war, to destroy women and children - its future, although ... what future does the Nazis have besides their destruction?

    The attack on the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine takes place in the area of ​​the settlement of Hulyaypole, where one of the most powerful fortified areas of the Ukrainian troops is equipped.

    Military science already proved five hundred years ago that it is necessary to attack bypassing fortified areas and fortresses, encircle them and deprive them of the opportunity to receive ammunition and systematically destroy replenishment.
    And only Russian generals, against all odds, have been trying to refute logic and common sense in frontal attacks against the fortified areas of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for nine months now ....
