Russian Offensive Reconnaissance In Donbass Region

PAYPAL, WESTERN UNION etc: write to info@southfront.org , southfront@list.ru

In the war in Ukraine, the political and informational battlefields are very far from what is happening on the ground. Informational confrontation between the warring sides has the crucial role as, among other things, Russians and Ukrainians are considered “fraternal peoples”.

At the same time, political statements that gain great importance in the absence of a negotiation process have little to do with what is really happening on the battlefield. Despite numerous claims about the beginning of the 2nd phase of military operations in Ukraine, the Russian Ministry of Defense has not made any statements about it.

Obviously, the major battle for Donbass is inevitable in the near future. However, the military developments confirm that as for today there is no massive offensive by Russian troops.

The most recently, Russian forces have increased strikes on the Ukrainian military facilities. Heavy artillery battles continue.  At the moment, it is likely a stage of Russian offensive reconnaissance in the Donbass region.

Russia has launched small offensive operations on the eve of a larger-scale offensive.

Near Izyum, Russian troops are attempting to break through the Ukrainian defense towards Slavyansk and Kramatorsk, as well as in the direction of Barvenkovo. Battles were reported in the area of Novaya Dmitrievka in the direction of Barvenkovo and Dolgenkoe located on the road to Slavyansk.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine attempt to counterattack in the region, but no success has been reported so far.

On April 19, the main gain of LPR forces was the taking control over the village of Kremennaya and an advance toward the town of Lyman from the north-east. However, the mops up operations continue in the area and the rears are yet to be secured.

To the north-east of Izyum, the front lines were pushed towards Peski-Radkovskie.

Fighting continues in the south of Rubezhnoye and in the suburbs of Severodonetsk. No progress by any side was reported in Popasnaya.

On the Donetsk front lines, no advances have been reported so far.

In the south of the Donbass region, in the area of Velikaya Novoselka, Russian troops have reportedly blocked the village from the west and entered the village of Vremyovka located on the outskirts of the town. However, the claims are yet to be confirmed, and fighting continues in the area.

The city of Mariupol remains the main hotspot of the Ukraine war. Amid the recent Russian successes in the city, the major assault at the Azovstal plant is interrupted by the ceasefire regime proclaimed by the Russian side.

On April 19, Azov fighters did not use their chance to leave the facilities or at least to let civilians go out of the basements.

The pause in hostilities only allowed evacuating 140 civilians from the buildings located near the plant. There are more civilians left in the area.

As a result, the Russian Ministry of Defence announced another ceasefire on April 20, postponing the major assault on the Azovstal plant.

There are still doubts if there are thousands of civilians held hostage in the basements of the Azovstal. The Russian military are making their best efforts to reduce the risk of civilian casualties, which have political aims as well. Unfortunately, it seems that the Azov militants and the Kiev regime have different goals.

Kiev may only profit in case if the whole Azovstal is destroyed together with the remaining Nationalist and probably civilians inside. Then, the Kiev regime could follow its propaganda campaign based on the lies about the inhumane tactics of the Russian invaders.

At the same time, such Russian concessions are always perceived as weakness by the Kiev regime and inflict damage to the Russian troops on the battlefields.

While diplomatic efforts are stalling, a kind of diplomacy is moving onto the battlefield and can play a decisive role on the ground.

One good thing to come out of all the slaughter : The russian army has found a way to deal with Javelins and NLAW’s. These weapons will be a lot less effective in future conflicts

An old T-72 continued fighting in Mariupol after three hits from NLAW / Javelins ATGMs……This was WIDELY published.

Are we living in the 1940’s now? Perhaps stopping watching Second World War movies would clear your head. Or in that case, how many communists have we in the Putler army? Or maybe we should think of how many supporters for Napoleon in France is it today. Stop living in the past!

“Cheer”? Since when does “Cheering” or “booing” win or lose wars? Access to resources, replenishment, manpower, determination, logistical matters, win wars.

Attila

After almost 60 days still no result. From mighty Russian army . You have to start 🤔🤔🤔

Lesco Brandon

Very true. While a side on on rear javelin strike is effective, a front on one is not. There are numerous videos and anecdotal data on Russian tanks taking several javelins yet continuing to function.

none

Helicopters fly low, use infantry to guard the tanks, aircraft must fly high, fast, and far, use more stand-off weapons.

Go Russia, but expect the amount of hysterical meetings, declarations, sanctions, fiat money, nipping cafe-o-leite will double up.

Reverse engineering, to see how they work. Once you know how it works you can engineer ways to render them in effective. plus Russia can also give some to China and Iran to reverse engineer to start making copies for their armed forces.

Hey

The only way to deal with ATGM is to have good recon, AWACS, air support and snipers. ATGMs are getting more powerful every day, even the best tanks cant effectively deal with them if left for an open attack

Erny72

And that’s why the old T-72 continued fighting in Mariupol after three hits from those ‘more powerful everyday’ ATGMs? And I’m not sure how you think AWACs, air support or snipers take out ATGMs; a modern tank (for example a T-90, upgraded T-80, or Merkava IV) deals with ATGMs with active counter-measures (Shtora, Arena, or Trophy respectively), however the best way to counter ATGMs is to destroy them while en-route to theatre. Like the VVS is doing.

NATO is laughing at you

Trump is Russian

Russia promised to take Ukraine after 3 days, promised to hold military exercises only on the Belarusian-Russia border… but in the end the CIA’s predictions came true and the Kremlin kept lying.

But a Parasite like you should move to Russia instead of opening the big mouth, while he profits in the rich west, just like the children of Putin, Petkov, Lavrov etc.

Ooooo Mr. War Tactics learn from Videogames. Where do you learn your War Tactics? From Rainbox Six Saga?

Lesco Brandon

This is very true. Fire enough missiles at anything and it will be destroyed.

John Tosh

The Russians took a few of those captured weapons to their military research labs to study them. In less than 9 months Russia will have an upgraded version of the Javelins and NLAWs. Maybe one mounted on a multi launcher. Stalins Violin version of a Javelin will do just fine

During the NATO attack on Iraq , Russia studied the weapons and the methods. Today Russia has better weapons than NATO. Don’t worry I’m the very near future upgraded weapons will smack NATO.

Ukraine thank you for testing Russian weapons in a live fire situation.

Preparation H !! Insert Deep and Apply Copiously…..

Slobodan

There is nothing secret about Javelins. They have their known advantages and disadvantages. They are fire and forget, and they are top-down attack, which make them very dangerous. And there are no proper countermeasures, except the improvised cage above the turret,which is a bad solution since it increases the height of the tank a lot. Javelin uses IR and video sensors to cross check the target, to confirm it is real and the one it was marked. The disadvantage is that the IR sensor has an overheating problem, so it needs to be cooled before the missile can be fired. You can not just take the Javelin, and and fire. You have to wait for about 30 or so seconds for the sensor to cool down, so it does not overheat mid air. Or it actually shuts down if not being fired for 30 seconds, because the sensor overheats. I forgot exactly which. But you can read all about it here: https://irp.fas.org/doddir/army/fm3-22-37.pdf

It is almost a MONTH since then and they still haven’t been able to regroup to the Donbas and launch a major offensive?

Damn, denial is a tough thing to deal with. Russia retreated from Kiev as part of negotiations, which is widely published. Don’t twist the words so it suits your narrative. So far Ukraine has not been able to regain a single inch of territory in the Donbass region and you know it

Analyst

“Damn, denial is a tough thing to deal with. Russia retreated from Kiev as part of negotiations, which is widely published.”

Why did they have to retreat to begin with? What did they gain by retreating? Because it is pretty clear what they have LOST: power and prestige at the negotiating table.

so if that was really their goal, then they have achieved the polar opposite of what they wanted…

Ramses

You hope it will be better under krimlin administration. We’ll see what they can do, now they blame other countries for their misfortune, team up with dictatorship countries and threat neighbors without nuclear weapons with nuclear missile strikes. What could go wrong with such society? Is the ‘russian’ citizen motivated to improve such nation and leadership?

Hey

Russians haven’t made a single serious offensive in this war. Constantly trying to bitch out under propaganda copium “we are just saving our brothers from nazis” bla bla. Russia isincapable for attacks and offense.

It’s steady work. Avoiding losses. Wear the enemy down. I prefer this tactic because it saves life’s. They could go faster if they have to, I am sure.

RealityOfWar

It actually can be a strategy, deescalate through protraction – just grind it out bit by bit with no big relative steps that can cause reaction and escalation from others – oh they made another 10 metres is hardly cause for intervention. Meanwhile it falls down the news list and everyone gets bored, more interested in their gas and electricity bills going up. Who knows with Russian thinking and strategy, I doubt many outside Russia can work out their plan! They just think different! Maybe this is rope a dope!

Ahaha

Why don’t you go to the front lines and recieve any russians offensive attacks and bombing. You will be pissing and shitting in your pants lol.

Ramses

“Russians” are the ultimate victims, sobbing about Second World War losses, almost like the Jews constantly babbling about their losses. Their obsession about the past is a disease. And no accountability for the people that became victims of their own “socialistic” system. The krimlin should go and buy a functioning brain as soon it will be available on the market.

Analyist

More waste of time.

The more and more Russia stalls this conflict, the WEAKER and WEAKER it will look in the eyes of the World, and the more and more weapons and equipment will pour in from the West.

Whose fault is it, that the Russian army is seen as weak and impotent? The West’s? LOL.

Russia is doing fine, west tried Russia to conquer all ukraine and bleeding Russia Economy, instead Russia now it plays bleeding ukraine and the west… who is getting who young teenager friend?

Patrick

Stalling? They have almost entirely taken control of the area’s they said they were going to liberate. After the fall of Mariupol there’s only a little bit of the Donbass left to liberate, which was Russia’s goal from the start. And if you genuinely think Ukraine is “winning”, why are they begging for money and weapons like cheap crack-whores on a street corner

drew cuurah

“Cheap crack whores’ are vastly better then the Zelensky beggars.

Ramses

Putler is the ultimate victimhood character russia has for a self image, he is only “defending himself” with invading the neighbor country. The reason with this staccato operation is that very few inside Russia was interested to fight this war for the krimlin Putler and oligarchs luxury consumption. Putler failed his own population with living in the past, the talk of “nazis” proves he lives in the 1940ies and is a nutter or been listening to nutter advisors.

Why do people here listen to this nonsense regimes claims? Are you inclined to listen to medieval shit hole country Islam imams as well? Or China’s people’s republic modern social score system, something more that motivates you, you think?

Carl Von Putin

If a winning army somehow look weak, the fault does not fall on said army, but deluded beholders.

Lesco Brandon

This is a war between Russia and NATO. While I agree Russia could have done a lot of things better the West has taken full notice of Russian precision weapons which are simply unstoppable. That’s one good thing going for Russia

Yuri

halfwit nazi—blind…Russia already won

thoughtful

If anyone looks at the amount of missiles and strikes the Russians are doing, it is clear that the massive amounts of weapons from the West is slowing things down. Where are they coming from, where are they made, how big are the stockpiles? The problem is the limitless supply of worthless $ that the US prints.

Funny news from Blighty today. The news was carrying the story of the bloke from Notts who having been in the UK military for many years retired to Ukraine and then joined the Ukraine armed forces. The local MP and news were outraged that he was being interviewed by Russian forces having surrendered. They are claiming it is illegal. It f*cking isn’t. Can you imagine if the UK caught a Russian merc fighting for the enemy having spent many years in the Russian armed forces. Of course they are going to question him. UK politicians, media and about 90% of people here are rubbish.

From the front:

Not bad is obtained in the Donetsk direction. I state that so far no second stage (at least here) has begun. In any case, according to the cards. Ours are grinding the enemy defenses well now in the Donetsk direction. Competently.

Plus, the Air Force began to work well, they do not fall. I’ll tell you a secret, officers with good Afghan and Chechen experience fly. They do not feel the slightest remorse about “wetting crests.” There are no carpet bombings, but they work competently.

The only thing is that Kharkov is very annoying. There are failures in the Kharkov direction.

From the side of Izyum, we are pressing… The enemy is trying to act competently, pulling forces well from the Rubizhne-Lysichansk direction in order to roll into the Slavyansko-Kramatorsk agglomeration in “short dashes” (to avoid the blows of the VKS). The enemy strengthens the flanks, competently retreats.

Now we are grinding the first frontier of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, where they have been digging for 8 years. We have already knocked them out where they broke into the ground specifically. If we roll them out from the 2nd line (the Slavyansk-Kramatorsk agglomeration), then, despite the fact that they will pull up units there (they carried out the third wave of mobilization), this will not save them: the defensive line itself will no longer be of such quality.

Enemy losses are already ranging from 25-30 thousand people. For Ukraine, this is a lot. But they will run if they lose another 20-25 thousand people. That’s the whole calculation, then they will break down, and no supplies will save Kyiv in this case. There will be no fools in Europe to fight for them if Russia systematically wipes off the face of the earth that which resists and shoots.
