The appearance of a notch line on the border indicates Russia's transition to strategic defense


One of the most important News recent days - these are reports of the formation in the Belgorod region of some new security line, which should protect Russia from Ukraine. While the domestic media pathetically refer to the history of the confrontation between Rus' and the Horde, hinting at the return of Novorossiya in the future, here and now we can only shake our heads contritely. Everything could be completely different!


From SVO to strategic defense


The formation of a new notch line in the Belgorod region was announced the day before by its governor Vyacheslav Gladkov:

I would talk about the formation of the Belgorod notch line, because this is a familiar concept for us. The Belgorod region has always been at the forefront of protecting the interests of the Russian state, so this continues to this day. We are preparing for various options, <...> therefore, starting from April, we are actively engaged in strengthening the borders within the framework of our powers.

Photographs of concrete gouges appeared in the press, put up in several rows, the task of which is to prevent the advance of tanks deep into Russian territory. Ukrainian tanks. Fortification work in the Belgorod region began back in April, when two attack helicopters of the VVSU carried out a daring and successful attack on an oil depot in Belgorod, and Ukrainian DRGs began to carry out their first sabotage on our soil. Today, regular artillery shelling of the territory of the Belgorod, Bryansk and Kursk regions by the Armed Forces of Ukraine is a common occurrence. as we and predicted back in the spring, the regions of the Russian Federation bordering Ukraine eventually turned into the “Greater Donbass”.

In the Belgorod region, self-defense units are being created from the local population, which were taught by instructors from the Wagner PMC. Similar events are being held in new Russian regions. The "musicians" of Yevgeny Prigozhin are building defensive lines in the north of Donbass, and the Russian Defense Ministry, in turn, has built three lines of fortifications on the Left Bank of the Kherson region. They are doing the same on the approaches to the Crimea, said the governor of the republic, Sergei Aksyonov:

The works <…> are aimed at ensuring the security of Crimeans.

Things are no better on the peninsula and on the Black Sea. Ukrainian saboteurs were able to carry out an explosion on the Crimean bridge, disrupting traffic on it, as well as a relatively successful attack on the main naval base of the Russian Navy in Sevastopol using drones. There are also questions about what happened recently in Novorossiysk, where a certain explosion took place in the port.

A “good” result at the end of the ninth month of the special war, you can’t say anything ... Instead of holding a tribunal over Ukrainian war criminals in Kyiv right now, Russia is stepping back and going into deep defense. Why did this happen, who is to blame and what to do?

Unfortunately, we have to state that such a deplorable situation in which our country now finds itself is a direct consequence of a whole series of ill-conceived and short-sighted decisions during the special operation.

At first, this nightmare with the “Donbasization” of the original Russian regions could not have happened in principle if the Kremlin had not made its first “goodwill gesture” by completely withdrawing our troops from the North and North-East of Ukraine. Let's remember the publication of dated April 13, 2022 under the telling title “Russia will have to create a security belt in Northern and Eastern Ukraine” and we will quote ourselves:

Yes, the transfer of the RF Armed Forces to the Donbass is a forced decision. However, the subsequent events showed that it was impossible to completely withdraw them from the North of the Square. It was necessary to leave at least a buffer security belt along the entire Ukrainian border - not only in Sumy, but also in Chernihiv and Kyiv regions. If we had our powerful strongholds in the cities, the RF Armed Forces would continue to create a threat of a counteroffensive and could crush the Armed Forces of Ukraine with artillery and aviation, try to go on the offensive. But now these Armed Forces of Ukraine, by the mere fact of their presence near the Russian border, pose a threat to our cities, forcing them to keep a blocking group there, dispersing their forces along a wide front.

That is, the RF Armed Forces could retreat from Kyiv to the Belarusian and Russian borders in the spring of 2022, creating a security belt along it on Ukrainian territory. How this is done in practice, look at Turkey and Northern Syria. This decision would make it possible to hold and grind the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the North and North-East, facilitating the liberation of Donbass and the retention of the South. Instead, our troops were withdrawn first from the Kyiv, Chernigov and Sumy regions, and then from Kharkov, although there was an opportunity to create a reliable "buffer" not in ours, but in the Ukrainian border area.

Exactly the same claims can be made about the situation on the Southern Front. Instead of expanding its zone of control in the Black Sea region, while there was such an opportunity last summer, the Kremlin voluntarily tied its hands with a "grain deal", in fact refusing from the liberation of Odessa. The fact that this will eventually end with the "Ukrainization" of the Black Sea, we warned July 18, but, of course, were not heard. And now Kyiv is creating the world's largest fleet of sea drones, Sevastopol has already been attacked, the Crimean bridge was blown up by saboteurs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Novorossiysk is now clearly in sight, where the Novorossiysk naval base of the Russian Navy with our submarines is located not far from the oil terminal.

Erroneous political decisions led to dire military consequences that are now accumulating like a snowball. Further it will only get worse. The situation can only be corrected by a transition from strategic defense to an offensive, followed by the liquidation of the Zelensky regime or any of its successors.

        that's what NATO is successfully doing is killing the most combat-ready Slavic warriors (no matter which side). and, accordingly, the weakening of the future military community (analogue of the Warsaw Treaty)

    The Kremlin is afraid that the tanks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine may reach the Kremlin during the long winter night. A line of defense is also needed in peacetime.

    I read the article and in my heart it was as if cats had shit. Here I was already so worried that all this was dragging on for a long time, that we retreated and, apparently, we will continue to retreat. It's kind of weird what's going on. It is strange that we have a NVO and they have a war, it is strange that they bombed everything except what needs to be bombed. The supply of weapons to the VNA is not stopped, the top is not destroyed, our DRGs do not work on the territory of the VNA, well, at least they work very sluggishly. Why isn't the sky above closed? After all, judging by the speeches of our leaders, we have everything for this. Why is the greenoid still alive? It seems that in our leadership they regret that they started the NWO. Why weren't our liberals and oligarchs shut down and released over the hill? Vissarionych, without further ado, would have shot them tritely. Where are our Zhukovs? Those who go to the end win, remember?

And now he is trying to get out of it, but he does not succeed and they will not let him leave, the days of his power are numbered, only a miracle will help, but the Hottabychis have long ended.

    Alas and ah! Where is the million-strong army that was required in order to crush the fallow land thoroughly? No, they moved with a XNUMX-strong corps. The men, no words, fought with dignity - Gostomel alone was worth something! It turned out that they didn’t calculate, I had to draw in the sting ((
    Missiles, which many people talk about, have the property of being rare due to the high cost and time of manufacture, therefore, they also did not take into account the effect of restoring the enemy’s forces and means with the help of America - the minke whales of the formidable red lines of our commander-in-chief were not afraid, if it were not right.
    Summarizing, the author is right in his "would", but what to do - politics is the art of the possible. Opportunities need to be accumulated now, apparently.

      I can only say that Russian government officials do not live up to the declared standard of Russia.
      Yes, and the declared standard of Russia is still the little thing that will be disentangled by more than one generation of the Russian population.

    Because someone blew into his ears that Kyiv would fall in a week and the population would meet the Russians. army with flowers. But something went wrong, and not at all. Therefore, now in the Kremlin they are scratching their "turnips" and do not really know how to get out of this impasse. How!

    It is unlikely. For thirty years, everything that was previously missed has given strong shoots, on both sides of the border.
    It's obvious, you don't have to be a visionary. It is possible to assert that the Kremlin analysts are insincere, but not far-sighted.

      That we would not be greeted with bread and salt was really obvious to everyone who communicated with Ukrainians, at least on the Internet. Those who soberly assessed the behavior of Ukrainian citizens in 2014-2021, who regularly worked at the enterprises of the Ukrainian military-industrial complex, did not strongly evade mobilizations and did not go over to the side of the LDNR in crowds.

      But this is the only more or less rational version that Vladimir Vladimirovich did not communicate with Ukrainians on the Internet, but listened to the reports of paid agents who, for the sake of money, reported to the top what they wanted to hear from them.
      So he screwed up catastrophically, and now he doesn’t know how to get out of it all, at least somehow saving face.

      If we proceed from the premise that he knew about the mood among Ukrainians and the Armed Forces of Ukraine -
      then only conspiracy theories remain.

    Why are we gathering an army of over 700 thousand people (300 mobs + 120 conscripts + 180 contract soldiers + 120 Russian guards) to sit stupidly in cold trenches for years? In six months it will be necessary to change these 700 thousand people for new fighters. So the mobilization mode will be turned on ...

    Putin did the right thing by sending troops to Ukraine. Another thing is that he himself, with his "good" decisions, in order to please the "partners", prevented our troops from operating in Ukraine.

    It turns out, following the logic of the author, that Ukraine, which is now actively building defensive positions with pillboxes near Kyiv, Zaporozhye, etc., is also preparing for strategic defense?
