Armed Forces of Ukraine note increased activity of the RF Armed Forces near the borders of Sumy and Kharkiv regions

Representatives of the Ukrainian side spoke about the concentration of a large number of the RF Armed Forces on the border of the Sumy and Kharkiv regions. So, the head of the illegal Lugansk administration, Sergei Gaidai, announced the possibility of an offensive by Russian units on Kupyansk.

He noted that a large number of Russian troops were deployed, in particular, to the Svatovo region.

Meanwhile, Russian military correspondents report intense fighting in the Avdiivka area. Thus, the towed howitzer 2A36 "Hyacinth-B" destroyed the fortified area of ​​the Armed Forces of Ukraine between Opytny and Avdiivka. Artillery strikes were carried out on enemy positions near the M-04 highway. Howitzer fire is corrected by drone operators, which makes it possible to accurately hit targets and reduce the consumption of projectiles.

In the Donetsk direction, the RF Armed Forces thwarted attempts by Ukrainian militants to launch a counterattack in the areas of the settlements of Pershe Travnya, Kurdyumovka, Klescheevka and Mayorsk in the DPR. According to the Russian Ministry of Defense on December 7, more than four dozen Ukrainian servicemen, three armored combat vehicles and a pickup truck were destroyed in the area in a day.

In the Yuzhno-Donets direction, artillery, aviation and missile forces of the Russian Federation delivered effective strikes against 79 units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in 183 regions of Ukraine.

    I would say: local battles do not stop.
    With the forces that Surovikins have, a decisive offensive is not to be expected.

    General Kherson has not lived up to expectations for a long time ...
    What is there to talk about if the main goal of the NWO is to stop the shelling of Donetsk for almost a year, it has been successfully failed. The Second Army of the World becomes the 222nd.

      "becomes 222" a few little lessons
      Lesson 1 - History. By the liberation of Kyiv, in the Red Army, on the Eastern Front, there were: 6000 "bayonets", against-000 with a "tail": Germans, Romanians, Hungarians.
      Advantage in aviation, tanks, artillery and MLRS installations, high quality anti-tank weapons, (data from Carius).
      Now there are no more than 640, their anti-tank weapons are higher than ours (Data: Ryabov, Sladkov) I don’t know about artillery, they have an advantage in MLRS. There are long-range installations: America, England, Latvia, the "father" has 000 pieces, Azerbaijan promised 7 pieces.
      Self-propelled guns "Caesar" younger than "Acacia"
      2) a lesson in tactics. For a successful offensive, a 2-3 times superiority in strength is necessary. They, according to Sladkov and Onofrienko, have about 1 million bayonets + mercenaries (and a lot)
      3) a lesson in politics. Read: "Stalin's report, before the cadets of the Lenin Academy on May 5, 1941. The advanced" Truth "spring 1945 and think about it now?
      Please note, I do not like: newfangled historians or bloggers. It is better to read old documents and THINK!

    There will be no general battle (offensive). Will be local. In winter, it is necessary to reunite the Kharkov region.
