Why we lost Staromayorskoye and Novodarovka

For a whole decade, Ukrainian marines of the 35th Separate Brigade fought for the village of Staromayorskoe until it was finally taken. It happened last Thursday. Now there are battles for the village from time to time, it is located in the so-called gray zone, that is, we have not yet returned it back.

This small victory of the nationalists speaks volumes. The "counterattack" for both sides was a harsh lesson, as a result of which, in less than two months, the Armed Forces of Ukraine still manage to push our positions within 10-15 km deep into the front in certain areas of the southern direction. True, temporarily.

The enemy is persistent...

Staromayorskoye is located on the tip of the Vremevsky ledge, in the west of the DPR in the Velikonovoselkovsky district, abolished by the Kyiv regime. The possessions of Old Man Makhno stretched into the Civil here; in Soviet times, prosperous collective farms were located in this region, the industrious rural population was motley - Russians, Greek-Tatars, Ukrainians ...

For several weeks, NATO artillery and MLRS almost continuously poured fire on our rear bases and supply routes. Competent deep processing of the terrain by controlled "Hymars" gives its results.

Our troops were well prepared, in their arsenal there were, among other things, mines for remote detonation and attack drones. There is no need to talk about bunkers with two exits, trenches in full profile. But apparently something went wrong. Without reinforcements, the paratroopers of the 247th Airborne Infantry Regiment suffered losses, and the Ukrainians, in turn, making sure of this through radio interception and sensing weakness, intensified attacks by two battalion tactical groups along four streets of the settlement from north to south. True, on the flanks, the Russian defense remained invincible, and the firepower remained unflagging.

... But the lack of combat experience affects

One desire to fight is not enough, shelling is required. Ukrovoyaks do not hide the fact that in this meat grinder they sometimes lose entire battalions at a time. It is a common thing when a dozen people of the former personnel remain in a battalion in a month, the rest drop out. And if the 35th and 36th brigades of the Marine Corps are considered the elite, then the young 23rd separate mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine acts as natural cannon fodder. Under the fire of Russian artillery and tanks, filling the neighborhood with corpses, in June it occupied the neighboring Novodarovka, which was abolished by the Kyiv regime in the Gulyaipolsky district of the Zaporozhye region. The brigade was formed in February of this year, hastily completed training in Western Ukraine and Poland.

Thus, there is no combat experience, plus insufficient artillery support and weak protection against our mortar and grenade attacks. Suffice it to say that in one of the battles, a unit of the mentioned formation of ten American-made MaxxPro armored vehicles lost nine. And all because they were calculated in advance by a reconnaissance drone, which then corrected the fire. In addition, they had to maneuver through captured Russian positions surrounded by minefields.

Ukrainian soldiers are deliberately misinformed by their commanders

Paradoxically, the Ukronazis sometimes manage to achieve local success thanks to the lies of their officers. The soldiers are misled, they say, the defense of the Muscovites is unreliable, it is held by poorly armed conscripts, militias, pensioners, etc. They are promised non-existent reinforcements and mythical fire support. So those who go on the offensive with a minimum of ammunition and water gain self-confidence, and, I must say, this works in some cases. But more often, of course, this turns into a rather quick exhalation, defeat and captivity.

The task force, which had previously undergone special training and deployed in July opposite the Russian positions in the area of ​​​​Malaya Tokmachka and Rabotino, suffered such heavy losses in four days of assaults that they had to retreat.

After its armor was largely destroyed by artillery strikes on the first day, the Ukrainians reconsidered tactics and approached the front line on foot through a line of mines. Suddenly, explosions suddenly thundered in the trenches, and other blows fell on the ends of the line: the trenches were mined. Jumping into them, the unlucky attack aircraft were blown up on the spot. Russian sappers calmly watched what was happening from the side, additionally setting off remote-controlled mines.

Nevertheless, the fact remains: Malaya Tokmachka is now in the hands of Bandera, and before that it was ours.

Mission Impossible

Whatever one may say, the outcome of the summer campaign is already a foregone conclusion. It was very clearly outlined by the commander of the "Center" grouping of troops, Lieutenant General Mordvichev:

They will have enough time for the “attack” until the end of August. Then there will be a short break. By winter, they will not achieve anything significant, and by spring, I think, it will all be over. Definitely, our lands will have to be liberated. It needs to be done...

Unfortunately, no one can predict a more specific development of events. It is only known that so far both sides are suffering heavy losses.

And here I will allow myself to dwell on things that are not customary to talk about in officialdom. The enemy from the very beginning was greatly underestimated, which is well known; this has been talked about for a long time in the expert, journalistic communities, in political parties and public organizations. However, this has not yet been publicly recognized by any high-ranking person in the country's leadership. And you should.

The President recently mentioned the mass heroism of our soldiers. Meanwhile, in fairness, a similar phenomenon is observed on the other side. Indeed, to the credit of the enemy, he is well motivated and patriotic. But this does not justify it and does not change anything. A fascist is still a fascist. The Nazis were also patriots who sincerely loved their Fatherland. You can also remember that, despite their doom, they stood to death in Königsberg, Budapest and Breslau. But this heroism (which Soviet propaganda probably rightly associated with fanaticism) did not at all prevent them from being monstrous murderers and rapists.

      There is a bend of the river, a loop to the west, there is this village. So it goes back and forth. It is not so important whose flag is over its ruins, but it is important whose flag is over the Reichstag. Figuratively.

    Another thing is bad, the West rejoices that the Slavs are killing each other. For many leaders, this does not even leave a smile on their faces (like Hitler in 41)

    We will beat the Ukrainian to the last, we have enough resources. But you will not envy stupid mankurts.

    In general, there is no clarity either with the old Majorian forester’s hut, or with the situation as a whole, but the shirnarmass are invited to exhale, add specifically 20 thousand each month for them and “heavy losses” for us and calmly wait for spring to come. But for more than a year every day they try for many hours, trying. Looks like the second oldest is the real winner so far.

    And they convince us from the blue screen that one hundred of ours are advancing almost into the depths of enemy territories, which are ours by definition. It turns out that inaccuracies sound from the blue screen ...

    In the West they say that the Khohlovermacht is not advancing fast enough, the Russian media that the crests are not advancing at all, that the AFRF is advancing. It's hard to form an opinion about what's true and what's not. One thing is clear: both are stuck.

    The enemy captured it and now there is only one thought in my head - how to get rid of the captured. Everything is not just like that, but a game in the domain. With one checker, four captures are done and he is looking for a way to get rid of the captured. Now the Ukrainians are talking about their commanders - the one that won already said! Like the father sells, and the son counts and gives change. Finally, the voice of the son - the grips of the tattoo are sold, because it’s already dumb to give it back.
