Military Overview: Russians Attempt To Encircle Ukrainian Garrison In Ugledar

Illustrative Image

The city of Ugledar located in the DPR has recently become one of the hottest spots on the Donbass front lines. In January 2023, Russian troops launched an offensive on the city, threatening another strategic line of defence of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

According to the official report of the Russian Ministry of Defence on January 30, the units of the Vostok group of troops continue successful offensive operations and occupied more advantageous positions in the region. They inflicted fire damage to the units of the 1st Tank Brigade of the AFU in the area of Ugledar, as well as to the 102nd Territorial Defense Brigade in the area of Uspenovka in the Zaporozhye region.

“The total losses of the AFU in these areas during the day amounted to up to 25 Ukrainian servicemen, two armored combat vehicles, a D-20 howitzer, two D-30 howitzers, as well as a self-propelled artillery installation “Carnation”. – the report reads.

In his turn, on January 30, the acting head of the DPR confirmed the advance of Russian units in the Ugledar region.

“We can already say that they managed to gain a foothold in the eastern part of Ugledar” – he claimed.

The beginning of the assault on Ugledar by the marines of the 155 brigade of the Pacific Fleet a few days ago:

 

 

Meanwhile, the situation remains tense on the battlefield. Russian forces have recently entered the city of Ugledar. In the private sector in the south-east of Ugledar, Russian Marines of the Pacific Fleet are engaged in positional battles with superior enemy forces. Heavy battles are ongoing while Russian forces are advancing from their positions in Nikolskoe. Russian forces are also surrounding the city from the southern direction, advancing from their positions in Pavlovka.

The tactical goal of the Russian military is to take control of the Yuzhno—Donbass No. 1 mine located in the western district of Ugledar, what would allow Russian forces encircle the city. So far, the mine remains under control of the AFU; but Russian troops are approaching it by several kilometers every day.

Russian artillery hit Ukrainian positions in the area:

 

 

Russian tanks in action:

 

 

Russian artillery is already shelling Ukrainian positions in the central and western parts of the city. Before the assault, they are weakening the AFU as much as possible and encircle the city. The road leading to the north is already under fire control of Russian artillery, and is unlikely to be used for military supplies. Another road leading to Ugledar from the west is also heavily shelled by Russian forces, but it is still partially used for transfer of Ukrainian military supples from Kurakhovo.

The Russians are encircling the city. Thus, if the Ukrainian military decides to withdraw troops and leave their positions in the city, they will most likely retreat to the steppes to the northwest under heavy enemy fire.

Ukrainian spotters with UAV attempted to adjust fire of Ukrainian tank on the outskirts of Ugledar but failed and ordered the crew to leave the scene:

 

 

However, it seems that the Ukrainian military command is still following the tactics to fight until the last soldier despite the threat of being encircled. The AFU has already transferred a lot of reinforcement to the area in order to hold the city at any cost. They are heavily shelling the advancing enemy forces. The areas on the outskirts of the city were also remotely mined with petals. They do not pose any threat to the Russian tanks but can slow down the advance of the vehicles.

Russian victory in Ugledar will threaten another strategic line of defence of the AFU in the Donbass region. It will pawe the way for Russian assault in Maryinka from the southern direction. Up to date, Ukrainian fighters are in control of the western part of the village.

How many personnel from the failed Ukrainian CIA project have been killed since the 2014 US coup in Kiev? How many Russian personnel are currently operating on territory that was part of the failed Ukrainian CIA project at the time of the coup? How many refugees have fled the territory of the failed Ukrainian CIA project since the 2014 coup overthrew the legitimate government of the Ukraine?

Call the mafia and put a bounty on them not getting to Ukraine and don’t be cheap. Give em a Howitzer!

US is in a hurry because Ukraine is going to fail badly in Donbass. Let’s see where Russia wants to stop at the east side of the denpr river, in Kiew or if they wants now to take all of Ukraine. The Russian victory is inevitable in Donbass. Jasi Car is threaten, Artemowsk almost emcircled, Adivka close to encirclement. Toresk will be under attack at least in 14 days and Russians big offensive even has not started. Ukraine is not willing to retreat its encircled army so a big Russian victory we can be expected. All Ukrainians defense lines are going to bypassed and demolished soon by Russia. Ukraine army is going to be annihilated in the Donbass. And Russia even did not start its spring offensive. Who will defend Charkow or Liwow?

Erikassimo4

Encirclement is good. It means that some Ukrainian soldiers can give up instead of being slaughtered.

Eu admirava a nação russa, conhecia a Rússia por fora, com a guerra estou conhecendo ela por dentro, que decepção, os russos são perversos. São pior do que o Estado islâmico, matam crianças, bebês, grávidas, idosos, estrupa mulheres, tortura crianças, tem relatos de estrupo de crianças, meu Deus. Os russos têm que viver isolados do mundo civilizado, Putin não deve viver no convívio humano, é um perigo, ele é doente, psicopata. Os tolos e bobos russos são facilmente enganados por ele.

Vic Nuland should be executed for her crimes, she brought about this whole disaster.

Clyde

While I don’t disagree with your solution for Vickey Nudleman, she hardly bears sole responsibility. They US dumped $5 billion into the country in the years before the 2014 coup to develop the Ukretardish identitarian concepts. John Baird hosted far-right insurrectionists in the Canadian embassy during the coup. Plenty of Americans and Canadians should stand in front of the wall for this catastrophic crime against humanity.

In John Bairds defense, with that many agitated male hormones in one embassy, how could you not expect him to host potential sperm donators for his gay ass. gayer than gay that one.

we need much more thermobaric and vacuum rockets and bombing here, because ukros are deeply dug in, so that keeps the resistance high and keeps a wery slow and hard work for the russian offensive.

The ideal outcome is that Russia is defeated and has to capitulate, as Germany did in 1945. The problem with the 1991 collapse of the USSR was that it was too peaceful; Russians did not feel defeated. They did not understand why the USSR had collapsed.

Modern Russians need something more than old boring Stalinist legends of Great Patriotic War, Putin’s pathetic state religion. Putin lost Ukraine in 2014, perhaps even earlier.

Russian mood evolved after 1991, as in Weimar Germany in the interwar period. 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.

Elgar

Should be done by inner circle of Siloviks, FSB, oligarchy. It’s a question of nuclear weaponry power which has become too weak to be real power in modern 2020s real world. The era of fossile energy is winding down.

Johannes Ekhman

West should give Ukraine all the potent arms it needs like modern battle tanks, precise long-distance missiles and modern fighter jets as soon as possible because the longer the war lasts, the worse the suffering will be. Ukrainians have far better battle moral like Finns had during 1939-40 Soviet aggression. But they need more modern weaponry and lots of ammo.

Shit country makes shit military

This war proved that Russian military is rather poor and most of its soldiers don’t believe in nonsense Putin is declaring. Using criminals as “elite unite” ((Wagner scumbags) underlined how low Kremlin regime can go.

Wallenstein

It’s relatively easy to find that Putin’s most friends in west are now ultra right wing facts deniers. This is like strange bed fellows syndrome. Stalin and Hitler were Allied in 1939-41.

Klausenburgischer

I guess all the private American contractors killing millions of Iraqi and Afghani children were heroes then.

Frantisek

Putin has proven to be a source of international instability and kleptocratic despotism in Russia. Such a regime must not be supported. How can anybody favor Putin’s frightful suppression of the Russians? Putin belongs in prison.

Klausenburgischer

Since 1990, how many wars the US started? Gulf War, Bosnia, Afghanistan, Iraq, Pakistan, Somalia, Libya, Uganda, Syria, Yemen … not to mention the wars it instigated as proxy wars… who is the “source of international instability”? A nation that since 1776 has been at war for 230 years and at peace for 17 years?

Finno-Ugro

Keep on dogged fighting Ukraine👍. You have proved how fragile Russian military cohesion and fighting spirit is. More effective modern weopons are coming.

“What will Putin do?” The people who pose this question clearly don’t understand that the whole of Russia’s military force is engaged in Ukraine, and that it is being beaten. A defeated Putin cannot do much. The danger comes from Putin not being defeated. Putin is very unlikely to use nukes, because that would mean both he and his generals will die. Remember that Hitler never used his many chemical arms, because he could not see how they could help him. Instead, he committed suicide.

Looks like someone or some group is trying to undermine this site again by postbombing the comment section with delusional fantasies of sending more weapons to Ukraine when the war is already lost, everything has been sent, EU nations are going broke and protests here in the EU keep getting larger.

The EU and UK are already at the point of complete humiliation, but it seems like most have not gotten the memo and are ready for more. Especially those in the US.

I suggest the postbombers should enlist as mercenaries if they want to humiliate Russia so much. You’ll get your fat chance there.

Seems more like two factions in the mods. Sometimes they delete pro sometimes antirussian stuff. But allways leave the insults for some reason.

Their parameters are wrongly set. No comment on South Front gets 90+ reactions (positive or negative). They just applied default bot settings for social media, without adjusting parameters for this particular site. Sloppy and cheap.

No need for hack. There is virtually no bot protection here so relatively simple script would do the job.
