Overview Of Military Developments In Izyum Area In Ukraine (Videos 21+)

Click to see full-size image

One of the bloodiest battlefields in Eastern Ukraine remains the Izyum area in the Kharkiv region. The Russian-led forces have established an important stronghold in the town and continue to expand their control zone in two main directions: to the south-east towards the cities of Slavyansk and Kramatorsk as well as to the south-west towards the town of Barvenkovo, which was turned into the main stronghold of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) in the region. In turn, Ukrainian forces continue their attempts to counter-attack the Russian grouping to the west of Izyum.

So far, the Russian-led forces managed to take control over the village of Dolgenkoe in the south-eastern direction.

On May 14th, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported an offensive of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in the direction of Bogorodichnoye and Krasnopolye. The villages are located about 6 and 12 kilometers south of Dolgenkoe. So far, no confirmation of the Russian control over the villages was reported. On May 15th, a counterattack of the Ukrainian units was repelled near Dolgenkoe.

The Russian control over the villages of Krasnopolye, Dolyna and Bogorodichnoe will cut the road leading to the west to the town of Svyatogorsk where Ukrainian units remain. Amid the Russian advance, the AFU grouping in the town risks being surrounded in the coming days.

Russian servicemen captured tankers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of Izyum:

 

To the south-west of Izyum, the clashes reached the Barvenkovo area, the large stronghold of Ukrainian forces. On May 15, clashes were reported on the south-eastern outskirts of the town in the village of Gusarovka. The Russian offensive is carried out from the village of Kurulki. So far, the clashes continue in the villages on the outskirts, while Barvenkovo remains under the AFU control. The advance of the Russian-led forces to Barvenkovo from the south-eastern directions cuts one of the roads heading from Barvenkovo to Slavyansk.

The bloody clashes continue. The both sides suffer losses, especially the defending AFU units. Corpses of the Ukrainian servicemen who were killed by the Russian heavy flamethrower system were left on the front lines:

 

In their turn, Ukrainian forces continue their attempts to cross the Seversky Donets River near the village of Protopovka to the west of Izyum and counterattack the flank of Russian forces advancing towards Slavyansk. The first attempts of counterattacks by the AFU units in the region were reported more than a week ago. So far, they have not led to any success.

The Russian positions were strengthened after the Russian troops took control over the village of Velikaya Kamishevaha located nearby, from where they could attack Ukrainian units on the left bank of the Seversky Donets River.

One of the Ukrainian attempts to cross the river was thwarted on May 14th, when the ponton crossing was destroyed by the Russian artillery. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation published footage of the destruction of the pontoon crossing of the AFU.

“While mechanised infantry units of the Russian Armed Forces were carrying out reconnaissance activity, an unmanned aviation crew detected a unit of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) with infantry combat vehicles trying to cross an installed pontoon.

The pontoon has been completely destroyed by artillery fire. The enemy’s vehicles that had succeeded in crossing the pontoons were destroyed by Russian artillery and infantry combat vehicle crews during the combat. Some vehicles of the AFU has been captured by the Russian servicemen.” the report of the Russian MoD reads.

 

The front lines in the area of Izyum remain one of the main battlefields of the war in Ukraine. The recent successes of the AFU near the city of Kharkiv allow to transfer more forces from the region to support the counter offensive near Izyum. However, the AFU are yet to slow down the advance of the Russian-led forces aimed at surrounding of the cities of Slavyansk and Kramatorsk.

As an average overweight chubby American burger munching house frau I know how much money we taxpayers are sending the Jew ponzi scammes in Kiev who are running Ukraine into the ground, but have to admit my expertise in US economy is way above your spam post, but I just want to say how happy I am that Biden is POTUS. The country is United, there is no gun violence, we are loaded with printed dollars even though most people can’t afford a home and the economy couldn’t be better, the stock market is roaring, the cost of living is down and foreign affairs are going great as Americans are so loved and respected everywhere, especially in Russia, China, Iran, Middle east< Africa and Latin America, so much so that our embassies are built like fortresses and diplomats sleep in bunkers. I can see why people voted for him 😜

Let us thank our Langley boys for doing a wonderful job with the USA. The Langley boys (CIA), took over power in the USA with one successful coup killing Kennedy. Now we live in this alternate universe created by the Langley boys… so close to Nuclear death.

We are now a few minutes away from a SAMAT ICBM taking us out.

Thank you CIA for all the good work! You deserve your salaries! Question is where will your income be pushed from after the USA is nuked?

Oh yes, you believe the Russians will not Nuke the USA because the USA will nuke Russia.

Here is the fact: After the USA nukes Russia, there is so much free land the surviving Russians can move to and rebuild. Without the USA pulling strings, Russia will rebuild within 10 years.

The USA will be nuked and would have nowhere to go. Canada and Mexico will become enemies of the USA once the USA is nuked. There will be no rebuilding of the USA.

“The USA will be nuked and would have nowhere to go. ” Alaska has plenty of room. And we could always push Canada out of the bed.

You mean you can grow enough food in Alaska???? Remember China and the rest of the world will no longer export food items to the USA because nobody wants the US Dollar. It becomes as useful as the currency in Congo Africa!!!

The British asset, Edgar Cayce, said the future USA would have sunken coasts and be bisected by a wide river from the Gulf to the Great Lakes. Cayce wasn’t a prophet, he was a British asset who was told what to “predict.”

Nothing interesting for me, he’s feeding light version of ukro-propaganda to us: counter-offensive of ukros near Har’kov (no attempts in reality), “russian” pontoon bridge (in 3 videos), Snake island (in 2 videos) with ukrainian Mi-8/17 named as RAF Mi-8AMTSh.

“Coup to remove ‘cancer stricken’ Vladimir Putin is underway and he’ll be gone year’s end, says Ukraine’s spy chief” Headlines in Western Press.

The most likely outcome in the next 6 months is Zelenskyy removed from office with a bullet wound to his head….. the other option is Zelenskyy’s cocaine rations are poisoned so he dies of heart failure.

There is a very big likelihood Putins sucessor is both more nationalist and competent. Furthermore western atitude to Russia leaves no way out and even a liberal pro western leader (which is what Putin is) has no choice but keep pushing.

The Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) is reporting as of 5 May that they had 1,622 soldiers killed and 6,525 wounded (4.02-to-1 wounded-to-killed ratio) out of a supposed (original?) strength of 20,000.

RF claimed to have just 1,351 KIA (mid April). This figure is too low and propably many deaths are onder logo of DPR and LPR. I have never believed those Russian loss figures. They always downplay their losses and exaggerate Ukie losses. Ukies doing the same.

Антон

What do you awaiting, equal losses of army with cruise missiles, sky control, other advantages and ukros? It’s normal numbers, because there are no more columns heading deep down to enemy territory without cover. Main losses of the 1st stage been caused by ambushes done by ukros. There is no city storms, except Mariupol’; no front attacks with waves of infantry; no attacks in the rear — ukro-guerrilla is failed; no massive offence at all directions. There is no reason to understate losses. And ukros just lies about everything.

basement in us embassy in poland

it is possible to lose a battle here and there and have people killed. this is war and perfectly normal. us lost 55000 troops in just 3 years of korean war, 18000 troops killed per year. the overall trend is that ukraine troops are getting liquidated wholesale and russia could have killed more and ukraine as a nation/state is done.

Frantisek

RF had 4 times more soldiers. Their losses likely 3-4 times bigger than that of DPR.

Mihael

I wonder what would be the losses of Slovakian/Czech/Slovenian soldiers in the case of misadventure with Russians? 300-400 bigger? Let’s not even imagine such plot.

Johannes Ekhman

So RF is claiming they have lost less than DPR. No wonder why Christopher Lawrence of Dupuy Institute is suggesting that RF has lost 3,000 soldiers killed more than just 1,351.

Where did you get LDPR losses?

Ilya

LDPR forces are worse equipped and do most of the pushing, as Putin refuse to commit more professional soldiers. It is a cynical, absurd cost saving measure.

RMoo

I think DPR, LPR have more to gain as well lose. So it is only fair to let them do some of the heavy lifting. Sooner or later RF will absorb them into their ranks. Allowing for more man power.

Mihael

It is really hard not to love those guys from various “institutes” and their body counts. Like those covid body counts in northern Italy in 2020. All true, of course. They ‘ve counted bodies themselves. 1, 2, 3….3000.

RF has almost 3 times more soldiers that DPR/LPR. Those staggering losses of its allies are hinting very high RF losses.

Антон

Looks like ukros said it. They also add ~1000 to RAF losses per day, it should be 25-30 thousand now or even more, according to nazi liars. But in real world it’s numbers of their own losses. All they can do is mirroring.

Frantisek

During this era of pain and sorrow it’s beautiful to know that Moses married a black woman. According holy Jewish scripts she was Cushite. Also medieval Christians understood she was black. Luther described her as “negress”.

Just to correct you, the Nile region people and south Sahara Bantu is not the same. But if you are American you are forgiven.

I’ve had sex with a few black girls in my life. To be honest, they smell totally differently than white girls. I’m not saying it’s bad, it’s just different body chemistry.

Great to see flame throwers in action against these Ukrainian Nazis – They have a cleansing effect like nothing else. However, still a bit disappointed that more use and innovation around fire and air fuel weapons has not been more forthcoming. We need fields full of toasted Ukrainian Nazis to bring justice to the world!

Indeed. 1941-45. Huge partisan movement from 1942. Sidor Kovpak — one of the greatest partisan leaders. But ukros should stop ukrainization (it’s kind of janissary) and be russian people again. Ukrainian is not ethnic term.

The reason Russia is having such low losses on the battlefield is because they are fighting an inferior NATO trained army. That is precisely why Russia invaded Ukraine which is a nation of 44 million people with only 160 thousand troops and was able to subdue the entire Ukrainian army. In contrast when Hitler invaded Poland he did so with 1.5 million troops. Think about that, let it sink in. Russia used less than 10 percent of its military army units and has Ukraine retreating and losing more and more territory each day. By the way Ukraine is NATO’s most experienced fighting army. This is literally the best that NATO has and Russia has not even warmed up yet. If Russia can conquer a nation of 44 million people with only 160 thousand troops then it can easily conquer all of Europe with just a few thousand bearded, dancing Chechens.

Anyone else notice the age of the tankers. Guess we can call this so called offense the 2nd wave. Dont think it will be long before the third wave is activated with all the glimmering equpiment provided to them by my goverment The U.S. EU, and NATO. After that I dont think there will be much fight left in Ukraine.
