The advance of the troops of the Donetsk and Luhansk People’s Republics has accelerated, DNR chief Denis Pushilin said. kyiv betrayed the well-trained “Azov” * (banned on the territory of the Russian Federation) and those who were close to him. Therefore, the nationalists increasingly withdraw or immediately surrender. And the allied forces of the republics and Russia every day liberate more and more settlements and begin to restore peaceful life there.
A peaceful life is established in the liberated territories. And in the DPR, LPR, in the eastern regions of Ukraine, heavy fighting continues. However, the forecasts are optimistic.
With the fire support of the Russian Armed Forces, the units of the People’s Militia of the LPR continue to carry out successful offensive operations along the entire front line and penetrate deep into the territories occupied by the Ukrainian nationalists. Toshkovka was liberated from the nationalists. Fighting continues in Gorskoye.
Severodonetsk is located in the operational environment of the People’s Militia of the LPR and the Russian army. Allied forces completed the operational encirclement of the Lysychansk-Severodonetsk grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The narrow path through Seversk was left at the disposal of the enemy, who is under the fire control of the units of the republic.
Lisichansk, Svetlodarsk, Liman
At the same time, the Ukrainian Armed Forces fired 257 shells at the settlements of the republic during the last day. Despite this, units of the DPR and the Russian army managed to break into the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the Bakhmut-Lysichansk highway.
Belogorovka, Nagornoe, Svetlodarsk, Lugansk, Mironovsky and Vasilievka were liberated from the nationalists. The attack on Novoluganskoye is developing, strong battles are being fought in Pripchatino, Kamyshevakh.
Most of Liman is under the control of the allied forces, the remnants of the Ukrainian garrison are defending themselves on the southern outskirts of the city. The enemy clings to the railway crossing, from where it is eliminated by Russian artillery and aircraft.
Kamyshevakha, Krasny Lyman
Meanwhile, the Cossacks of the 6th Regiment of the People’s Militia of the LPR take part in an attack on enemy positions in the Kamyshevakhi area. The operation is supported by heavy 240mm Tulip self-propelled mortars. And in the Melovatka area, two Soviet-made Tu-143 Reis aircraft were destroyed.
– At the moment, we can say that 28 settlements have been completely liberated. As for Krasny Liman, our units have already entered the settlement, passed through it and have already cleared more than 50 percent of the territory,” DPR chief Denis Pushilin said.
Over the past day, the Russian military shot down two Soviet-made Tu-143 Reis drones in the LPR region, the Russian Defense Ministry said.
According to the head of the LPR, Leonid Pasechnik, the defenders of Donbass, with the support of the Russian Armed Forces, liberated almost 95 percent of the territory of the republic.
Donetsk, Makeevka, Gorlovka
The northern direction remains especially important – Donetsk, Makeevka, Gorlovka. Now there is a difficult situation with the water supply.
– This is due to the fact that the enemy at the first opportunity cut off the water supply. Therefore, we are accelerating, but, communicating with the command, which is directly in charge of the operation in the north direction, we assess the situation as optimistic”, said Denis Pushilin.
And Russian aviation during the day hit 48 accumulation areas of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, two artillery batteries, two ammunition depots and an Osa-AKM facility on the territory of the DPR with high-precision weapons during the day. And at the Pokrovsk railway station, during unloading, units of the 10 mountain assault brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were defeated along with military equipment.
Ukrainian security forces have been shelling Donetsk since morning, the DPR reported. In total, 14 122mm caliber shells had already been fired at the city before noon. The Kyiv, Petrovsky and Kuibyshevsky districts of Donetsk fell under the powerful bombardment of the nationalists. Yasinovataya is also under fire from the Ukrainian Armed Forces. In all, 21 Grads shells were fired at the town and cannon artillery was also working.
Kharkiv, Gusarovka, Chuguev
So, on the last day, Russian air defense systems shot down a Ukrainian Mi-24 helicopter over Gusarivka, Kharkiv region. And near Chuguev, our soldiers destroyed the illumination and guidance radar of the S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems.
Meanwhile, the army of the republics and Russian troops entered the territory of the Kherson, Zaporozhye and Kharkov regions, Denis Pushilin said. According to him, it is impossible to protect the Donbass only by reaching the borders of the republics. We are talking about protecting the territory of the DPR and LPR in its entirety.
“We would simply drive the enemy back. But those bombings, that aggression by Ukraine would have continued for an unlimited period of time,” Denis Pushilin explained.
Kherson, Odessa, Novovoskresenskoe
Ukrainian nationalists fired on the village of Novovoskresenskoe, Kherson region, with remote mining 220mm cluster munitions from the Uragan multiple launch rocket system. Also, in this region, the military police discovered a cache with weapons left by the Ukrainian military and national battalions.
“Special services are working on the territory of the Kherson region, which are cleaning up the entire ‘legacy’ of terrorist attacks and Nazism,” said Kirill Stremousov, deputy head of the region’s civil-military administration.
The hideout was located in the forest area, not far from the country road. Explosives, a hand-held anti-tank grenade launcher and pellets for it were seized there.
In addition, the air defense forces shot down a Ukrainian military transport plane over Kremidovka in the Odessa region, as well as 13 enemy drones.
Russian aviation during the day hit the electronic intelligence center in the Nikolaev region with high-precision weapons. At the same time, our troops in this region destroyed 11 crew members and 15 foreign military engineers and their guards.
Demining work continues on the territory of the Azovstal plant, where the Ukrainian military and nationalists have been hiding for a long time. Several sappers were injured, Denis Pushilin said.
– The enemy remained insidious even in this regard. There are a lot of traps, booby traps, technically they had everything for this,” Pushilin said.
According to him, the work is carried out jointly by various departments. Demining is carried out by sappers of the Republic’s Ministry of Emergency Situations and specialized groups of the Russian Armed Forces.
“The safety of specialists remains a priority, even though work has been accelerated,” Pushilin added.
It will take two to three weeks to completely clean up the Azovstal territory, said Eduard Basurin, deputy head of the DPR People’s Militia Department. Such terms are due to the fact that the territory of the metallurgical plant is very large – 11 thousand square meters.
In Azovstal, there are also living Ukrainian soldiers who remained in the industrial zone after the surrender of the main forces. Either they deliberately hide or they just get lost. Their number is not specified, the combing of the plant continues.
Igor Korotchenko, editor-in-chief of the National Defense magazine:
– The Russian military machine literally grinds the enemy. With advantage in the air, high-precision weapons, logistics and motivation, our troops managed to dismember the Donbass grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and are now destroying it piece by piece. The Ukrainian units are exhausted, poorly armed, short on manpower, so they cannot hold even well-prepared and well-fortified positions.
Every time the Armed Forces of Ukraine are faced with the question: do they fall back, retreat to new lines of defense or stand on the old ones, but it is guaranteed that they will fall into the cauldron and await death or captivity, because no one will definitely will take out of the cauldron. As long as they choose to retire.
Dmitry Boltenkov, military expert:
– Russian troops and their allies take units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in a semicircle, and then constantly “iron” them with artillery fire and air strikes, until the Ukrainians themselves lose the will to resist. In addition to Severodonetsk and Lisichansk, such a “half cauldron” has already formed in the Zolote and Gorsky area, under Krasny Liman. APU business is wrong.
