On May 23, the Russian Defence Ministry reported that Ukrainian saboteurs who attacked the Belgorod region the day before were defeated. LINK
The remnants of the saboteurs were “thrown back from the Belgorod region to the territory of Ukraine.” During the operation, 70 saboteurs were killed, 4 IFVs and 5 pickups were destroyed.
On May 22, several Ukrainian sabotage and reconnaissance groups crossed the Russian border and attacked the villages in the region. The legal regime of the counter-terrorist operation was introduced in the Belgorod region.
According to preliminary reports, about ten armored vehicles and a group of infantry of the Armed Forces of Ukraine took part in the attack.
In total, Ukrainian troops managed to advance up to 8 kilometers deep into Russian territory, moving through the villages. They were stopped on the outskirts of the town of Grayvoron. On the evening of May 22, Russian forces pushed the saboteurs out from the villages of Gora-Podol and Glotovo towards the border. Ukrainian saboteurs gained a stronghold in the area of the border village of Kozinka.
The Russian security operation was complicated by the densely populated area, the villages are located close to each other and there were still some civilians in their houses. That’s why Russian servicemen could not use heavy weapons against the Ukrainians who were traditionally using civilians as a human shield. At night, intensity of the clashes significantly decreased.
At night, Ukrainian forces attacked the Belgorod region from the air. Several drones dropped explosive devices on an administrative building in Borisovka, on private houses in Grayvoron, and reportedly on the FSB building in Belgorod. As a result of the attacks, no one was wounded.
On the morning of May 23, Governor of the Russian Belgorod region reported that the mop up operation continued in the Grayvoron urban district. The number of victims from among the civilians grew up. At least, 12 civilians were wounded as a result of the shelling. Including a deputy head of the city district administration, who was wounded on May 22 after three MLRS missiles were fired by the AFU at the Grayvoron administration building.
The Ukrainian attack on the ground was accompanied by the constant shelling of the Russian border villages. According to the governor, over the past day, the Belgorod district was shelled 15 times, a drone was shot down in the village of Nikolskoye,Ukrainian artillery shelled the village of Zhuravlevka with 14. Borisovsky district came under fire three times. Two explosive devices were dropped from drones. The village of Stary Khutor of Valuysky city district came under mortar fire, a total of five shells were fired.
Golovchino, Antonovka, Kozinka, Spodaryusheno, Gora Podol, Glotovo, Zamostye, Bezymeno, Zarechye, Grayvoron, Mokraya Orlovka, Novostroevka came under fire since the morning of May 23 in the Grayvoronsky urban district. The fire is conducted from MLRS, mortars, drones.
From the military point of view, the attack on the border villages was senseless. There were no military facilities to be captured. The entire operation was aimed to gain the headlines in the MSM and hide Kiev’s defeat in Bakhmut. The large information and sabotage action on the Russian territory allowed the Ukrainian forces to distract some Russian units, which is unlikely to have any impact on the situation on the Donbass front lines.

if something like this stunt happens there needs to be a painful response – psychology. also, since the maidan regime and nato deny any responsibility, the fighters are war criminals, terrorists and should be punished as “hostis humanis generis” according to geneva convention, that is: they are lawless, without rights and deserve at best by a court of the drums and capital punishment.
clivey boy os heading there on top of a kalibri boom boom and a toilet brush in his hand lmao
clyde’s just sitting back watching the tenth straight year of ukrainian failure.so many emojis, so many lol”s as the failed ukrainian cia project nine years after the us coup has lost crimea, most of four oblasts, millions of refugees, millions of former citizens who are now russians, and well over 150 000 military personnel kia. and you’re worried about ol’ clyde. so much seething from banderpite ukretards and their nafomosexual cheerleaders.
if aprox. 100.000 in addition is …well over…..banderite nazi idiots were dragged the soul out of that nation literally burying an entire generation under the soil of ..no more kukrainii but blackstone fund owned lands. definition of a stupid person: fight for others interests.
there must be freakin army units on the enemy border during wartime, no?!?!
the border itself is not important.
what you protect is anything of strategic value. oil depots, vehicle storage, military base, etc. it’s not a video game where you just stretch your troops out along an entire border to symbolically defend a line in the sand.
imbecile nation. period. all theirs actions only increase russian unity, solidarity and cohesion. that is when you have to obey others orders like a slave nation kukrainii is from the very start of theirs vassalage to atlantic globalist cabal.
russia failed to secure its own border and also russian intelligence are weak,
russia has understood for centuries that actually sealing its border is impossible due to the sheer size of the country and that depth is their defense. whereas the uk has the english channel, russia has the enormous depth of its territory that allows it to survive invasions
russians againts russians southfro nt, some true please
wagner pounded your mammas ar3e
why do they wear only ukro flags then?
thus to all treasonous psionist slaves from every country in the world.
mali ich pochytať a povešať a to bez milosti!!! takýmto útokom by mali ruské pohraničné sily predchádzať. a ak už nepriateľ podnikne takýto útok, tak ten by mali byť náležite a tvrdo potrestaný. aby sa to už viackrát nepokúšali zopakovať.
if these criminals are russians which i doubt very much, if captured they should be executed like the trash vlasov.
ukraine and nato denied responsibility, despite them driving tanks, wearing full nato gear and showing ukro colors. that gives them non-combatant status aka terrorist status. according to geneva convention they are “hostis humanis generis” and the are without rights in international law, unless russia wants to grant them rights by national law. they can be killed on the spot.
anglo saxon and khazarian paedophilic and genocidal blood we need to spill,more and more until the 2 scum fascist capitalist paedophilic and genocidal races will be totally extinct. amen
you have a good name.
another scum racist russian
says the banderpite. how’s the sacred ukrainian gene pool doing today? seems like half of it splashed into other countries in the last ten years.
already very diluted by serving heavy prostitution on the streets of ue shithole….dumb and almost schizophrenic nation of pederast minds.
there will very likely be far fewer air defense gear with these nazi suicide squads that entered russia. so russia can use much more regular air dominance power on their own territory.

us humvee rolling into russia and killing russians. you couldn’t have asked for a better recruitment picture. this mission was senseless, suicidal and ultimately with only strengthen the russia military. ukraine is nothing but a wounded beast lashing out with its dying breaths.
nothing but a cross-eyed inbred us attack dog dying on the end of its chain.
its absolutely insane how russians attack south and keep all northern borders unattended, why did they retreat from sumy region in the first place is beyond me. you cant go to war without enough soldiers…these nazis might actually reach moscow this way one day
bullshit. they can reach anchorage without letting americunts know anything about their presence. the same.
impale the prisoners, bombard bankova, send lvyv to the stone age and breach the water with submarines close to the shore of maryland and vermont. than we shall see the density of dough the yanks were made.
pray that nato doesn’t come into the game, hallucinating, they can’t handle an army with few resources and continue the rhetoric of eternal stupidity but you should have realized by now that the west doesn’t give a shit for the threats of a bunch of crazy people
i wish i met you eye to eye to give you the chance to say straight to my face what you wrote here.
so an elite group of ukranian forces and terrorist russian trators were essentially defeated by lightly armed border guards and civilian local police forces from belgord ?
it does appear that way.
is russia ready to take the gloves off yet?
an act of war, get on with it
people who paint crosses on their tanks and invade russia get their very own cross to sleep under, once again
the russian people are fed up and will show that they do not agree with having barbarians in power sooner or later this bunch of hallucinations will be deposed by the people, it was always like that
many of the units now seem to just be propaganda/headline units that launch offensive attacks against russia to convince people dumb enough to believe western media (propaganda outlets for the oligarchs) that ukraine is winning.
a sideshow of the freak show which is us and nato warmongering.
how exactly do these nazi roaches and sundry vermin imagine they can “hide the defeat of artyomovsk” with more than a hundred thousand rump ukrapper bodies and bits lying in the ruins of that decontaminated city? ukrappers are second only to the peasants of “west” germanistan, without doubt the dumbest collection of mutts in urupp.
get the pentacon scum of the anglozionazi empire of shit out now, destroy natostan and the evil eussr or the entire shithole, urupp is going down in flames, as will certainly slumville, ussa. z
where the hell was the russian air force? that was a fairly large force. the russians had better up their game
sarebbe utile che qualcuno degli alti funzionari della duma facesse rinsavire putin sull’attuale status- quo delle cittadine confinanti che purtroppo sono in prima linea dai sabotatori – russi e dalle forze naziste ucraine e polacche. darebbe anche utile tenere sotto osservazione i confini della germania, polonia e romania dal momento che i grandi rifornimenti militari provengono da questi confini !
