In the end of June, Russian-led forces accelerated their advance in the strategic area of Severodonetsk-Lisichansk.
So far, the Ukrainian military command has lost the last chances to evacuate the remaining units from the city of Lisichansk. All the roads leading to it are under fire control of Russian artillery. Some separate groups of Ukrainian servicemen are attempting to flee towards Seversk by the fields.
Meanwhile, the assault units of Russian forces entered Lisichansk and fighting broke out on the streets. According to the Ambassador of the Luhansk People’s Republic to the Russian Federation, the forces of the LPR and Russia already control 50% of the city of Lisichansk.
Russian units are advancing from Volcheyarovka along the Oktyabrskaya avenue and from the village of the Matrosskaya mine along the Heroes of Stalingrad.
At the same time, the trap around the city is closing.
To the north, Russian-led forces took control of the town of Privolie located on the north-western outskirts of the Severodonetsk area. The advancing units crossed the Seversky Donets River and established a foothold on the right bank on June 28th. Then, launched a mop up operation in the town, which fell in a day.
On June 29th, Russian forces took control of the entire industrial area of the Lisichansk Oil Refinery located to the west of the city of Lisichansk. This was one of the main military bases of Ukrainian units in the area. As a result of several days of clashes, Ukrainian ranks suffered heavy losses.
Suffering strategic losses in the Donbass region, Ukrainian forces attempt to achieve any gains in the Black sea area. After several attempts to repel Russian forces from the Zmeiny Island, the Ukrainian military reportedly succeeded on June 29th.
Satellite imagery showed that military assets of Russian forces on the island were shelled. The pier was damaged.
The Russian military withdrew the garrison stationed on the island. The Russian Ministry of Defence claimed this was a step of goodwill aimed at demonstrating to the world community that Moscow does not hinder the efforts of the UN to organize a humanitarian corridor for the export of grain from the territory of Ukraine.
On the same day, in the Zaporozie region, the largest exchange of prisoners of war since the beginning of the Russian operations took place near the town of Kamenskoye. 144 Ukranian prisoners of war were exchanged for 144 Russian servicemen. Despite the claims of the Russian military that members of the Ukrainian nationalist battalions would not be exchanged but would face trial, among those exchanged from the Ukrainian side were 43 wounded Azov militants including those from the Azovstal plant in Mariupol.
A loss is a stretch, as Zneimy hasn’t been retaken. Currently it’s nobody’s country, more a stalemate.
Downplaying the facts is no substitute for sober analysis.
The evacuation of the island is a clear defeat, at least propagandistically. Whether you like it or not!

I totally disagree, Norway can build shit – its called viable defences against German Nazis – its why Russia had to liberate Norway! But then again, you can see now, better to have left the German Nazis have prevailed there as the Norwegians are turning into Ukrainian Nazis now anyway!
No tiene sentido estar combatiendo por un islote que es facilmente bombardear u hostigar. Rusia se repliega pero Ucrania no puede tomarla sin estar en un serio probema de replica y considerable perdida de material tecnico y humano pues esta al alcance de artilleria costera. Si Ucrania intenta desembarcar en ella, sufrira perdidas importantes, asi que creo que existe estrategia en la retirada.
It could be an easy target for RF if Ukraine would go on. Can’t see reason why Ukraine would go on that island. Maybe just to put the flag there, take few pictures and run like hell

Love your tears, yummy 😘
Nobody doubts that you love ingesting the bodily fluids of others.
It’s a clear operational loss for Russia and a win for Ukraine in the short term. Also, it either shows Russian defense systems failed (Pantsir), and/or shows Russia couldn’t locate and attack the positions of Ukrainians dealing that strike (HIMARS first visible result?).
If no one can occupy the island in the next weeks, that means nothing. The fact is Russia had to run away from it, and Ukraine can now use those Odessa troops/weapons somewhere else.
In the long term, we’ll see what that island really means only when and if Russia advances to take the entire Odessa oblast.
By the way, talking about defeat and the inability to deal with it, how many months will it take for Russia’s MoD to update the number of Russian casualties? They update Ukrainian cadualties daily, but can’t even update Russian casualties monthly? This opens the way for speculation about high numbers. Much higher than the “1351”…
And how will Russia deal with Turkey in Northern Syria, now that Biden’s friends in Ankara helped NATO expand a “little” more? Specially considering Kremlin’s goal in December was to go back to pre-1997 expansion. Not even the pre-2022 Russia will get!
The opening of SouthFront’s video says it all: win some, lose some. No stalemates.
Someone did say that Russia arent really taking casualties anymore and thats why they not updating it. Sounds unlikely though
ISLA SERPIENTES ES LA ISLA MARTIN GARCIA DE UCRANIA NO SIRVE PARA NADA HOY EN DIA EN AMBOS CASOS OBVIO SI SE TIENE ARTILLERIA MISILERA DE LARGO ALCANCE OSEA ESAS COSAS QUE PARECEN UN FALO VOLADOR Y REVIENTA CUALQUIER COSA MUY PERO MUY LEJOS CON UNA FABULOSA PRESICION Y ESO SOLO PARA EMPEZAR AHORA HASTA SE HABLA DE MISILES STARGATE CUANTICOS !!!!
It’s a suicide island and should be a neutral zone dedicated for shipping lanes. Too many people have lost their lives for that rock. Unfortunately
Smart political move. Give Snake Is to Ukraine, no excuses for “blockade of ports”. And use missiles if any Ukies try to take it.
Exactly. It is ridiculously obvious. I am surprised so many can’t comprehend that.
You have to face reality in war – Russia could not hold an exposed position, faced with a concentrated attack with modern weaponry. The Pantsir systems were overwhelmed. All this would be extremely worrying for Russia, if those were not the facts. The reason is – other than being on an exposed Island – Russia would enjoy natural dispersal and some natural protection in a normal field setting. The Ukrainian Nazis would have a massive search space and complementary air defence systems in place to face. However, it is a warning to Russia that a strategy of very high concentration of attacks against a pantsir system can overwhelm it (which is of course natural – every system has a limit) – the air launched cauldron to give it a name that fits with this special operation. All this will go into Russian learnings – of course get rid of the exposed position is the first task – Done! Then the read across into other settings – in progress and finally the countermeasure creation to remove the new found battlefield problem. War is innovative and an intellectual challenge. Winning is all about overcoming challenges and playing to your advantage. Russia is doing this in the Donbas – Slava Rossia Fuka Ukraine!
well wel, Nazis were exchanged. This is disgusting. Russia’s messaging about this war makes zero sense now
it would make sense if you had an RU POW as a family member or husband etc. but then you don’t, do you.
You are right about that. I even liked your comment because it’s on point.
But then again, thousands have died in this conflict, so does the government that sent them there really care about them? I’m sure there were enough members of Ukrainian’s 36th Marine Brigade, inclusing their commander and deputy commander, that could have been exchanged. Why injured nazis then (Azov)?
Disabled and no longer a threat? Let the Ukraines pick up the medical bills? Or NATO, more accurately.
All Nazis are on the dark side, but there are varying degrees of evil deeds done individually. Russia is clearly sorting them out. The sadistic murderers WILL NOT be exchanged but will be tried (there are videos and proofs).
The AZOV thugs who were exchanged were ALL badly wounded and many were amputees.
It makes some sense to exchange the cripples who will also need a lot of medical care, as long as those concerned have been cleared of war crimes.
Executing cripples after a trial would also be a propaganda gift to NATO. It is NATO who executes the helpless.
AHaha go check the Next SF articles. Like always it was all a lie 🤣😂
Please continue, love your tears, yummy 😘
Nazis… with missing limbs. Keeping a prisoner is expensive. Treating a wounded is expensive. Better let the nazis take care of the nazis.
That is nonsense. No Azov rats should be exchanged.
No nazi is worth one drop of Russian blood.
Fake news,besides your the poof here whoms life makes zero sense,not christian russias,ye poofters!
Exchanging Azov Nazi’s not a good novel.
I’m sure that all exchanged POWs are fully de-brainwashed. I’m sure Russia would not exchanged any hardline nationalists. USSR used same tactic during WW2. Most POWs went to gulags and few were pampered and then sent back to West as messengers. The amputees were part of Russian propaganda too
low yield nazis were decommisioned by ethnic soviets for good,irrespective Russia needs hard workers!
you have no idea, Russia has enough good hard workers and doesent need Nazi scum for anything. Those Azov fighters should have stayed in jail for the rest of their lives, locked away under the earth and never see sunlight again and NEVER be released. Now do your homework, boy.
Technically they did not lose Zmeiny, it was a tactical retreat to prevent was what bound to happen the losing of Zmeiny with all the forces stationed there killed and destroyed by a barrage of MLRS.
Exactly. Now if Ukrainians will send troops there….. they wont survive even a day and if Russia decides to wipe out the entire island- they will do so.
how about a strategic island overseeing traffic from odessa why did russia bother to place guns and garrison and lose soldiers only to just give it up wonder what the dead russians soldiers families think of that strategic move very fishy
“Russia Wins In Lisichansk, Loses On Zmeiny” I’ll take that trade without hesitation.
And they didnt even lose on zmeiny, they just found out that they were getting easy targets there.
why did they go there in the first place probably they will do the same with transniestra putin is getting soft,btw he is good friends with klaws swab and hernry kissing her,you know a person by the company they keep
its not a game,its disgusting clearly you sit eating crisps on the couch while real people are dying
And how many Ukrainian young men had to give their lives for this small piece of rock? 20k? Pure madness.
20k? stop making up numbers. This is not really a war yet. 200k russians vs 100k ukrainians, is not a war. 80 years ago it was 10 mio german soldiers vs 30 mio soviets- THAT was a war. Putin calls it Special military operation and that is absolutely what it is. No matter what the media is trying to make out of it.
Sorry max 200k Russsians vs. 700k ukrops 🤗
700k is Ukrainisn propaganda. Maybe 500k dream of being a soldier. It was around 200k at the beginning of the war so it cant be much more yet. Noone becomes a real soldier that knows how to fight in a war within 4 month. Putin would never go into this from a “weaker” position.
You can’t fight for shit,what the fuck do you know gimp,nintendo war games,fkn clown! Harden the fuck up double take troll!You just destroyed your own argument with lies!
braggart cowards dont know shit try 1 russian for 12 ukranazian lost,debt whore,septic grots!
Your a delusionist and a coward to boot,for starters you don’t even know what pain is,obviously you never had the balls to partake in any means of tough team sports,nor fighting let alone defend yourself in school so you go and try to make up your baloney corage using others lifes as granted,except you own nothing nor anyone,infact its proven in the end 7.5 milliuon soviets factually lost their lifes against 8.2 million germans as revealed by official usa military archives,which only proves you baloney is only rivaled by the level of cowardness in your wake,you must be a poof then! FIXED! i never argue with any idiot,but i may wire impotent punks like you for being such a lowlife coward!
You also never actually informed yourself about history correctly and just pick the numbers you like the most, written by some propaganda official. Soviets lost much more lives in WW2 than the nazis, thats no secret- because most russian POWs were simply executed/tortured to death by the SS while german POWs were taken to siberia and other parts of russia where they had to work and be productive wich is a much better solution than simply murdering them. Finally Soviets won this war with stronger hearts and courage, in my opinion the toughest Culture on this planet (another reason why the current sanctions on russia are rediculous and might work on spoiled western populations but wont affect the russians a lot) And now go on, tell me more about my life, but maybe you should masturbate first- puperty seems to hit your temper hard these days (your poor mom). And Thanks for making me laugh. You still have to learn a lot-
Absolutely agree. I know both, russian and west cultures very well. I lived in both. Russians are very tough people overall and the west ones are the opposite, weak and soft. For that reason I bet if Putin wanted to topple entire EU shit would been enough to cut COMPLETELY the Nord Stream 1 pipe in winter, leaving it without gas and in maximum 3 months all governments would have been falling from Britain to Romania. West peoples are NOT accommodate with shortages and harsh life, they lost in the last 100 years the ‘old’ way of life, giving modernism and easy life a total control of theirs lives.
My brother in Christ
Napoleon brought europe to it’s knees with less than 200k troops
The US toppled Iraq in 21 days with 160k men against like 375k
Modern warfare is less about the numbers when you can wipe out entire divisions with cruise missiles, drones, and high altitude precision bombing
Technology makes a difference, youre absolutely right. But on the other side…. The U S. was fighting Iraq….. Russia is now fighting vs the whole western world, just look how much weapons they pump into Ukraine, and who knows how many foreigners are fighting in Ukraine vs Russia. If Russia would only fight Ukraine, the “war” would have been over after less than one month. Plus the world population back in napoleon times was 10 times less than we have today, 200k was a huge army (still not enough to take russia ;) )
Rational decision to retreat. A good sign to see Russian Army leadership adapt to current requirement instead of clinging to outdated strategy for PR reasons (unlike the Ukie clowns)
Well and good. did you get the idea that the changed situation is already the problem! The change of situation that forces someone to vacate something can rightly be called a tactical victory. Can’t it? soberly considered.
It’s not that I’m happy about it. But facts are facts.
The situation is that the island is quite unimportant and requires too much effort to hold. So you give it up. If the Western propaganda press calls it a victory let them have the fun, its completely irrelevant.
Sorry, but i think that’s just an assertion. Just a few days ago, the importance of the island was emphasized and the occupation was celebrated.
I am also biased pro russia, but i do not close my eyes to the facts!
if its unimportant why bother in the first place very fishy
you dont need to be or not happy you dont have a son coming back in a box for a useless piece of rock
No one, except perhaps you, has talked about the usefulness of defending this island when a changed situation (in this case the novel possibility of shelling the island with long-range artillery) forces a retreat. However, this is by no means a victory and should not be sold as such. A retreat, even a tactical one, is and remains a loss of a base! point
The fact the Russian ruling class refuses to storm cities (eg. Odessa) made holding the Island impossible. The Moscow ruling class tepid response to any and every challenge makes success difficult to achieve.
VAN A TENER QUE PONERSE MAS DUROS LOS RUSOS O LOS OCCIDENTALES A LA LARGA SE LOS VAN A COMER CRUDOS EN EL CAMPO DE BATALLA Y DESPUES VAN A IR POR RUSIA EN PLAN DE SAQUEO Y VIOLACION COMO HACIAN LOS VIKINGOS !!!!!
the russian ruling class is just as degenerate and parasitic as the west capitalism is a disease
russia loses AGAIN!!!
No problem as long as ukraine loses as before and the USA runs away from part-time soldiers in sandals.
Military Academy here ! Again, very precise strategic projections about the subject of Snake island. It’s no doubt a strategic and propaganda lost for Russia but a tactical win. It is no point to defend a fragile zone and loose ‘technics’ and soldiers in this stage of the war, when it is crystal clear that US will force Ukropizdan to ignore ALL losses but to take the island. This island have an enormous importance for the ameriscum junta because it DEFINES the OIL PERIMETER of the Black Sea in accordance with the international treaties established long time ago, in the ’90’s, between theirs 2 colonies, Romania and Ukraine. That’s the ONLY reason for JUSA to press Ukraine to do EVERYTHING to take this island no matter of casualties. I expected for Russia to ‘discover’ this catch long time ago and not try so many times to retake it. There is no point, mostly because it isn’t defensible when hohols imbeciles controls the northern shores and JNATO terrorist organization survey 101% area from Romania. A perfect tactical retreat but that FORCE Russia to take Odessa !!!!!! Without Odessa and with that all south banderist nazi sea shore, the island is NOT fit for occupy. And without this island Russia will let NATO to legally deplete the colonies of Romania and Ukraine of it’s HUGE discovered Black Sea oil reserves. So, Snake island is for Russia when it WANT to reach another level on the war with the west satanic cabal. From our academy perspective it’s a MUST. Will cost very much the russians, because Odessa is the MOST fortified city in Ukraine, but the results will be to DETRONATE completely JUSA JNATO filth from Black Sea and by extension from entire north Middle East area. It’s VITAL for Russia and the ONLY ‘marker’ for us, the respectable military academy of a REAL play of Russia against the neo-liberalism LGBTQ and satanist globalism, and not only a fake role in a pre-established theater.
Pumpers academy ia back Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahagahagahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha
POR FIN UN BUEN ARGUMENTO DE ESTE TEMA VAN 10 PUNTOS !!!!
The entire planet only hopes and prays for one thing. Boris Johnson never taking his cloths off in public. The amount of vomit caused will outweigh the battle in Syria !
Please Boris Johnson we do not want to see a humongous beer belly!
Boris Johnson actually suggested at the G7 meeting they take their cloths off. This is how childish the G7 has become.
G7 has a meeting to discuss taking off their cloths to mimic a previous photo shoot of President Putin !
What a shame, when did the West become this
Having turned Zmeiny back over to the Ukies, the Russians should now bomb the crap out of it.
Lace it up with quick sand,hide the evidence,no more nazi problem!
I don’t get the Russians. Why they exchanged those Azov servicemans? The whole point is to not allow a single nazi to get alive. In war you simply can’t play soft coz it’s going to back fire.
It is a low-level scum, a lying, slimy, hypocritical bastard who not only has no honor and dignity, but does not even know what it should represent, a timid dog that will sell everything and everyone just to save his head … They are allowed to return to the rat lair where they will start talking because they are part of a movement whose voice is heard … they will tell bad things, nasty stories, terrible moments … where they will start to instill fear, where they will start to spread defeatism and to create doubt … where a Ukrainian soldier of destroyed morals, instead of relying on an exceptional, staunch and consistent soldier, regardless of being a Nazi, will experience a total debacle listening to the lost soul of completely destroyed self-esteem and lost hope …
all 43 Azov exchanged had serious injuries that required amputations….they are now qualified to be employed in LGBT brothels
AHaha go check the Next SF articles. Like always it was all a lie 🤣😂
Please continue, love your tears, yummy 😘
snake is has no strategic importance for either side—-ukis can be eradicated w 1 kinzhgal
The US is responsible for this entire crisis. And getting what it deserves complete humiliation and embarrassment by Russian forces who not only are plowing through the Western army they built in Ukraine. And blunting all their attempts to weaken Russia. Victory and glory to mighty Russian federation. Her cause is just!
It makes sense not to leave troops “like a shag on a rock” to be blasted.
Concentrate your forces on the objectives in the East…Odessa can wait.
Russia is slowly drawing the U.S in deeper and deeper, Taiwan is wide open, will Xi attack after the Hong Kong anniversary?
Not sure what value Zneimy presents. It is a very small piece of land. Great for peace time operations but not very useable in war time.
God u are dumb
Apparently RU wanted to build air cover for ships after Moskva sank. Futile.
Russia has liberated so far 126,500 sq km of Russian commonwealth territory inside of Ukraine, Zelenskyy has been gifted 1 sq km for his eventual exile onto.
England by way of comparison is 130,279 sq km.
The Ukes are doing grand…..now they got Zmeiny eye land. (I don’t really believe that, it sounded like a nice rhyme though.)
Russia should be taking rest of the east soon. I give Ukraine respect they held to the best of their ability worlds 2nd strongest military we all expected Russia to take all Ukraine in a weeks time but the Ukrainian prove much more resilient y’all were fighting a losing battle to begin with but we’ll fought
US has been killing million of innocent peoples in the middle east lol
No shit,copy ans paste homosexual orientated repeato rant,GET A LIFE BOT!
So russia moved its forces off an empty island that they control all the routes to?
And that’s a loss?
whats the real story with the surrender of snake island very strange,why have injured nazis been allowed to be exchanged
NaZis have no value to Ukraine. That’s why they are being returned to Russia. Most in bodybags.
I am under the impression Zneimy was a bio weapons facility prior to the special operation. It’s isolation would have made it a prime location – plus its the only explanation for the futile attempts to reclaim it by Ukraine – and attempts by russia to hold it.
Really, ask yourselves what makes sense. There was no assault on odessa so the whole reason to having it is pointless. I have seen pages and pages of reasons why it was supposedly important but at the end of the day with Russias modern capabilities there was zero reason to hold it.
There tasks for the island have been completed. What else does that mean other than investigations?
