According to the situation on the night of May 11, 2023, there is significant activation in all parts of the front, mainly by the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The Ukrainian army is conducting reconnaissance operations. There are also attempts to break through the front line in several directions.
The most complicated and contradictory situation is in the Bakhmut direction, where back on May 9, the AFU launched an attack on the flanks of the Russian group of troops. After the withdrawal of the positions of the Russian 72nd Brigade, there has been no significant advance in that direction on either side. The insurgents occupied several strongholds. In addition, the Russian Armed Forces lost several square kilometers of frontline in the area of Bogdanivka, which had been given to them by Wagner. However, in Bakhmut itself, Wagner continues to storm the western outskirts. In the northwest of the city, the Russians have advanced along Tolbukhin, Medvedev and Chernyakhovsky Streets. The Wagnerians also controlled the positions around the intersection of Zaschatnikov Street and Levanevsky Street. To the south, our troops advanced to 1st forest street. According to E. Prigozhin occupied 68,500 meters, and under the control of the enemy – 2.18 km. Most likely, the Ukrainians are implementing a plan to encircle the positions of PMC Wagner, using the weakness of the Russian Armed Forces.
Fighting near Bakhmt:
Near Kremenna without much change, the positional struggle continues. Russian forces, supported by artillery, attacked the positions of the militants near Belogorovka and Makeyevka. In addition, the Russians made an unsuccessful attempt to advance near Stelmakhovka and Masiutovka. However, given that in the evening of May 11 it was reported that Ukrainian troops had been redeployed to the border with Belgorod Oblast, there is a real opportunity for the AFU to develop its successes not only in this direction, but also in Kupyansk, where there has long been no advance by either side of the conflict.
The Russian Army is attempting to break through the militant defenses west of the H20 section near Novobakhmutovka. Positional fighting continues east of the sandpit. Also, the Russian military expanded the zone of control from the direction of Opytnoye. In addition, offensive attempts were also observed near Soledar, however, according to most claims, they were unsuccessful.
Destruction of the Ukrainian SAU Gvozdika in the Zaporozhye direction:
In addition, there has also been a significant redeployment of equipment to the southern sections of the front. There are reports of attempts to land troops on the left bank of the Dnieper River near Nova Kakhovka. However, according to the official media and Telegram channels, all attempts were foiled.
This situation shows that the morale of AFU units is incredibly high despite the protracted war that has been going on for more than a year. Units of national battalions such as Azov and Aidar, destroyed in the beginning, are reuniting and pose a growing threat to the Russian army. In addition, the mercenaries, who came literally from all over the world to fight the war against Russia, are really well trained and provided with everything they need. Thus, the expected counter-offensive is a kind of decisive moment in the outcome of the conflict, because with the huge losses of the AFU, they are not likely to make big attempts for a very long time. At the same time, if the Russian forces are defeated and sectors of the front are lost, there will be a situation where even the local population of Zaporizhzhia and Kherson, which have already become loyal, will cease to be so.

Move Gerasimov to the council with Medvedev and appoint Surovikin as head of the RuAF. Then sit back and collect the wins.
This is fake news. There is no unit called 72nd brigade in Bakhmut. Prigozhin is bullshitting you. SF is bulshitting as well sometimes that makes me feel it is some fake pro-Russian organized by NATOstan to identify those opposed to NATO/WEF agenda.
That would be too fast way to victory – keep in mind that RF needs to win militarly and also economically with west ….
Russian military is in the edge of collapse.
And there was no usage of all the delivered western equipment. This where just easy recconaise attacks.
Yeah, according to the media. If so then why is Zelinsky still on a begging tour? Has anybody heard of or seen his Defence Minister lately? Or are the rumours true?
The soil is to moisture for the usage of heavy tanks! I guess Ukraine can win without it if Russia is not turning its struggles
Really?! Since when?
yeah , and i am bugs bunny !
This was just the beginning. There were no western tanks heavily used! If the Russian army has no morale the war is lost. Still there is a lack of ammunition, fighting morale and leadership in Russia.
All hard fought gains within the last year are yet in danger. Soledar, Bachmut… Wagner cannot do all tasks for Russia. Russia even forbit PMC to recruit new prisoners. If it is going on this way Crimea is lost next and some Russian territories will be occupied by Ukraine to enforce a Russian capitulation. To make it worse Poland even made claims on Kaliningrad as a former Polish territory.
Putin give Russia it’s naval bases in Sewastopol back! Dare not to lose the gain of WWII Kaliningrad, don’t lose Transnistria next. Your decisions have destroyed Russia. Who can save the country now?
Is that why Russian borders are now similar to pre-1922? Crimea, voted to go home and happy to be back with Russia. Same with Donetsk and Lugansk. Remember Novorussia. How much territory have Ukraine had to hand back, because the people voted to go home?
If Russia is not able to hold the territory at the front how can it keep Crimea?
lol vote freely and democratically , the same democracy with which they hold elections in Russia , arrest and kill opponents of the regime
Proper democracy is that in US which is proven during the last elections. Another proper democracy is for example in France where president takes liberty to push pension “reform” law by forcing it without parliament decision, using an emergency clause intended only in case of war, martial law or cataclismic events.
Or one where so called EU organizes “referendums” about the same issue as many times as it needs to have it passed, violating the will of the citizens. Or when US terorists (NATO) abduct and murder chief of Italian party properly elected by the will of Italians (Aldo Moro). You mean that proper Western democracy?
How many bottles have you shipped today? A country where it is forbidden to use the word war, a country in the world where the most journalists are killed, opponents are arrested, poisoned, schools bombed, hospitals, a government tailored to the dictatorship they have, not even in 50 years you will be able to buy a Mercedes, go there and work for cents to buy a Lada
Which country? Yours? Do you have a country? Do you know what belonging to a country or local tradition means? I thought you are an International Jew, a person with no homeland, no tradition, no culture, only constant mudding for a world order run by “chosenites” in the name of your desert god, of course. Fucking bolshevik scumbag.
A lot of money is being spent on BOTs and Trolls, aka Integrity Initiative, Bellingcat, 77th Squadron and NAFO. They would not be needed, if all was going well. NATO calling a special meeting, the week before Defender 23 ends. How many NATO elite got taken out in the tunnels in Kiev, the other week?
Not enough. But, let’s see it half full. There’s still plenty of time.
Real bots are coming from Russia feeding ridiculous and pathetic pro Russia propaganda. 🤣
Kaliningrad as a former Polish territory? When excatly ? It was founded by crusaders (Orden der Brüder vom Deutschen Haus der Heiligen Maria in Jerusalem) in honor of Czech king Ottokar II. Then it was member of Hansa till it became part of Prussia. Later russian for a few years and then german empire till the end of WWII.
What drugs they give you in your yeshiva?
Bueno cerca de 25 blindados fueron destruidos por los rusos a los ucranianos, asi que algo deben de haber llevado pero tienen muchas esperanzas en las chatarras que le entregaron. Vivir para ver.
Have you personally counted Russian 152mm, 120mm shells, rockets, tanks, machine gun ammo etc? If not, how do you know that there is lack of ammunition? Or morale, or leadership. British MoD told you? Oh boy, they are so reliable as much as those of Institute of War or Sun/Daily Mail.
And Mr Prigoschin is angry just because of nothing? Or is there the all knoen lack of ammunition?
Prigozhin is a clown, he is useful idiot used to mouth something Russian officials can not or will not say in public. If Surovikin says publicaly that there is not enough ammo, NATO shills would discard it as an disinformation right out of hand. However, here is an actor, Prigozhin, portrayed as a sort of a maverick speaking the truth and nothing but a truth who would certainly wouldn’t lie, would he, when he claims there is not enough ammo.
He is selling you a bait you need to swallow, with line and a sink. 72nd Russian brigade just fled….yeah, sure. Who is a commander of that elusive brigade? Boy, are you that stupid?
The Counter Offensive, is it Ukraine Forces or the Foreign Forces, who are fighting? With regards Bakhmut, what type of area did Russia allow Ukraine to have? Was it fields, without cover and a nice little trap, to enlarge the cauldron? Or was it a small section of Bakhmut, that gave Ukraine an advantage? Exactly what advantages has Ukraine actually achieved to compared with all those that they have lost?
What Russia needs is a capitulation, a true humiliation, so that most Russians will understand that they must rethink and denounce Putin. An aggressive war criminal such as Putin must not be left in place.
meanwhile, back in the real world . bakhmut has fallen, ukraine forces re in full retreat , running for their lives , caught out in the open fields being mowed down . russia destroyed two bridges preventing their escape. they are bombing the shit out of kiev . destroying the patriot missile systems in the process. ukraine cowards , meanwhile , have managed to kill and terrorize civilians in luhansk and donetsk with long range missiles..
