On August 17, Russian-led forces took control of the village of Vershina. The gains were confirmed by the Headquarters of Territorial Defence of the Donetsk People’s Republic.
So far, DPR and LPR troops, with the fire support of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, liberated 268 settlements on the territory of the Donetsk People’s Republic, including Vershina.
The first reports about the DPR control of the settlement came on August 14. The village of Vershina is located to the east of Zaitsevo, near Kodema and Klenovo, on the south-eastern outskirts of Bakhmut.
Assault groups entered the settlement back in late July, and after weeks of fierce clashes, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) were forced to withdraw from their positions. Advance of Russian-led forces in the area was complicated by a large network of trenches, which had been created during eight years of war. Fighters of the Wagner group took an active part in the assault.
Russian advance to the south-east of Bakhmut allows them to attack Ukrainian forces in the city from several directions. Russian-led forces have already entered the eastern outskirts of Bakhmut and managed to establish a foothold there.
The Zaitsevo settlement is the next target of the Russian military, which will further strengthen the position of the Russian troops in this direction. The assault groups passed through the village of Vershina and clashes reached the town of Zaitsevo the last week. The AFU are hastily retreating to Bakhmut and Konstantinovka.

US has been planning to destroys Russia Ukraine EU and China even EU because EU is competitor of US trade.
Bulldozers are sluggish that even turtles could overtake, what anti-ukroNazis want to see is the entire Odessa and its ports being swarmed by RF forces to completely stamp out the entry of Western weapons bound to kiev.
Those come across the borders of Poland and Romania. Taking Odessa would not stop those. It would however give Russia a stranglehold on Ukrainian grain exports.
I quit performing at shoprite and currently I create $80h – $120h…how? I’m operating online! My work didn’t precisely make Maine happy thus i made a decision to require an opportunity on one thing new… when four years it had been so onerous to quit my day job however ;Zl’13} now I couldn’t be happier. Heres what I do……….𝐡𝐢𝐠𝐡𝐩𝐚𝐲𝟐𝟒.𝐛𝐥𝐨𝐠𝐬𝐩𝐨𝐭.𝐜𝐨𝐦
US has been planning to destroys Russia Ukraine EU and China even EU because EU is competitor of US trade.
Putin doesn’t want to put a stranglehold on Ukrainian grain exports, he wants a negotiated peace! He’s signaled that to the USA multiple times, and he naively believes that the rulers of the Empire are sane enough to agree.
That’s why he let Ukraine reopen the ports and resume exports and earn INCOME. Crazy, isn’t it? War won’t stop if the enemy generates income! (of course the West pays, but now Ukraine also generates income)
Was the result what he expected? No, on the contrary, they started blowing up targets in CRIMEA and now they hit non-stop the nuclear powep plant!!!
Open port can pull African and many countries to Russia side.
And that will be worth what? Nothing, just a pit to throw money down.
Putin the Mild is crazy, right along with all the other 5th column money grubbers in the Russian ruling class.
Storming isn’t Russia’s thing. Just constant artillery. That’s their thing. That’s why it’s about 3 dead Ukrainians for every dead Russian.
I see no numbers from Russia. maybee they can die. So how do You know.
Russia isn’t in hurry. Destroy all enemy with minimum loss is objective of Russia strategy.
The russians are forced to not be in the hurry.
It seemes Puttie has erased your memorycard, if ave had one.
Maidan probatly came as blitzkrieg from God and Jesus from the sky too. There was NO REASONS.
Well, l for one feels the frustration now that it’s becoming clear that Russia’s SMO was simply a limited operation indeed to establish a buffer zone (set as an endgame) along the immediate border with Ukraine, and they are now confined to defensive position just to maintain the buffer zone.
Z symbolizes ZOG. Israeli IDF are putting “Z” on their tanks too.
RUSSIAN MUSLIM MUTT WANTS TO COLONIZE UKRAINE https://www.bitchute.com/video/Xm9SDeBlHKrj/
Sure and Zorro and Zero too.
The last time someone tried to storm Odessa they lost 96,000 men before the Soviets evacuated their forces by sea. The USA would be delighted to see 100k or so Russians die trying to take Odessa especially since it would be Slavs of Russian decent fighting to keep them out. Hopefully the Russians today are smarter than that.
Nice if You added how many the defenders lost from and by that pocket.
There are no supplies coming in through Odessa. The port is blocked.
Thats a relative. There is mainsupport by them by two vital bridges for trucks crossing Dnestr river.
2,15% are nazis aganist the 17,8 communists and KGB.
“Fighters of the Wagner Group took part ” –so much for Ukraine’s boast and the Paid Posters here of- “they were all destroyed in a missile blast ” .
Emo Ukrops should stop crying and capitulate already.
The Russian demands from the start have been reasonable. Ukraine should just make a deal and say goodbye to Eastern Ukraine, while at the same time peacefully compensating those that want to live in the Donbas for their property value and letting them go. And of course, never join NATO.
Ukras are not crying.
If tears its being very angry and determinent. Russai has added even more revenge to them.
A few Wagner fighters might have died. I don’t think Russians make the mistake of housing too many soldiers together in closed quarters as Ukraine has done.
They’re a private group, though, so maybe they were stupid enough… They were also blown up some time ago in a stadium in LPR with info provided by locals…
do you have sources for that? For me it’s hard to believe that locals in the LPR would provide infos to the enemy
We have seen none. But as for the happenings at krimera, there can be piectores and movies taken by moviles and androids.
They can be by distance, so they fx know those wagners were hit by explosions and smoke and next the firedepartment.
Thats what Ukra refugees gets everyday from Ukraine from family and friends every day by direct communication from all over Ukraine.
I did read elsewhere that this location was deliberately leaked, to ident the used HIMARS, that was then destroyed.
Few is not verified as well as the opposite. I do see Russia has made no real comments. To me it could indicate those Wagners were hit hard.
heavy loses is often told by drip drip drip.
Wagner group have been doing the bulk of the getting a foothold into Bakmut for weeks after their rest when they greatly assisted taking Seiverondonetsk and Lysychansck. a month back. Never heard of any being destroyed by a missile and such claims are beyond stupid.
THEIR LEADER WENT TO THE DONBASS AND THEIR LOCATION WAS LEAKED BY A PHOTO WHICH HAD THE STREET NAME. It was on SF and non Western media. Their were casualties and one death. The British intelligence sourced the location after discovering the photo.
Thats posible. I has been normal procedure to delay everything, which tell a positon after ISIS used GPS localizers and attacked the targets.
Himars are for attractive targets only. Is a Waggon HQ not important. I think it is.
But you also can use a modern artillery unit, which can put 8 grenades to same target at the same time.
The brutto netto is not verified. Hit well is not the same as total blas and succes as described by several. Its hope.
How CNN reports it … ‘Russia making minimal gains with heavy cost while under pressure from Ukraine on several fronts’
The great thing about ‘pressure’ is that you do not have to show that you are actually advancing.
Taking back Kherson in 6 weeks by now. Let’s see what ukrainians will say to justify their next failure
Its a part of the fight to keep up the morale by optimisme. It also add russians troops there.
CNN activists/journalists are dumber then bricks. Maybe they should be studying the battle of Verdun instead of claiming Russia makes small gains. Sometimes the purpose of a battle is not to gain ground but to bleed the other army white. The purpose of the battle of Verdun was not to take Verdun but to bleed the French army white. And it did succeed. One more failed French offensive in 1917 and the French army broke out in mutiny. You can argue about what happened in the opening month of the war, but right now the Russians are bleeding the Ukrainian army white. And when the mutiny comes CNN will probably show surprised Pikachu face.
They literally believe that diversity is better, and that a man that cut’s his pecker off is a woman. What can one think of such fools?
CNN very nice lgbt—love zelensky special sausage
They are not dumb. They are liars. There is a difference.
they are both
Ukraine and NATO, the UK, US are all determined to eliminate the Ukrainian forces. Russia always wanted to just show te ukrainians what they were doing, see their reaction and if they were decent and against the carnage of their army, they always wanted to just send them home to their wives& kids or parents.
You could say the Russians started the operation channelling Heinz Guderian and are now channelling Erich von Falkenhayn. But however you may laud it as an effective military strategy, this business of attritional warfare is hideous butchery and exacts a vast human toll. It took France generations to recover from the horror of Verdun. God knows what lies in store for the Ukraine.
CNN as watched by Crackheads, Nutters & Nonces
I think their reports mix truth and lie… it’s indeed minimal gains (we’re talking about small settlements here!), but the cost is heavy only in terms of the money used for the weapons and ammunition, not in terms of Russian lives. On the other hand, someone may say that every Russian life lost is one too many… and I tend to agree, when they could just use some heavy weapons to blow everything up. Most civlians have left anyway, there was a compulsory evacuation carried out this month by Zelensky.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=978LQpgsAPI In WW1 the creeping barrage was used because if you shell trenches they hide in bunkers and many are still OK then they come out afterwards, or even if they are hit then reinforcements can be sent in. Although this tactic may not be used in quite the same way today I think the same sort of problems exist, shelling alone won’t destroy everything, so they have to advance cautiously.
I did read that Ru’s arsenal left over from the Cold War is limitless.. on basics. Noo stuff comes out of Govt. factories at cost, not 10,000% markups.
CNN also reported the USA had won in Afghanistan until about 2 months before Kabul fell. CNN doesn’t have reporters … they have script readers.
I remember they told we should stay there to keep the things we had accomplished. Thats not predict wining.
Very bad only to use CNN as source representing the whole USA. There are other old medias just as big. They are in different levels for that too.
You also ignore the many other world medias. You live in the past by that – or russia or another totally media controlled area.
Its easy to compare maps in meters or centimeters pr day.
As told before my old grandmother even in her late days could advance faster then them wits som RPGs in her bag.
“In Nevelskoye, powerful and accurate artillery fire from the 100th brigade of the NM of the DPR forced the militants of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to abandon their positions (because these got fire). And as soon as the Nazis left their trenches (like rats jumping off a sinking ship) and began to run away, they were crushed by well-aimed mortar fire and snipers”. Brilliant. It’s basically setting the trenchers on fire from inside and then wait for the targets to come out.
It’s a meatgrinder. And while the West is supplying the Ukraine with scalpels, cause the West LOVES wonder weapons that can win wars with minimal means, Russia meanwhile brought a chainsaw to the game.
Hopefully the decent ones are left to the world and only the Nazis are harvested by the grim reaper. Be in truth and be good as hell is SO overcrowded.
If true, its the perfect version, which happens now and then.
when your sponsor are incompetent lgbts defeated by taliban expect Russian meat grinder too make ukrop sausage….I now export Azov human sausage to Tel Aviv—-very popular. I open new office in san fagcisco, califeces…will offer fentanyl human sausage—very fatty amerikanki style—-sell USA military and senile Jens
And compare that to Russia. 20 years ago the Russians were fighting a bloody war with Islamic Chechens, and now Chechens fight for Russia. What’s that tell you about the cool aplomb of Russian diplomacy?
No, wrong, that’s what the West wrote and wanted you to believe!
They weren’t fighting against those Islamic Chechens, but against the Islamic Chechen Extremists who also fought against Islamic Chechens! It wasn’t Russia vs Chechnya but Russia+Chechens vs (Chechen) Extremists.
well said Elena, I agree
Those Chechens are lovely.
I predict that Russian troops will take control of bakamut on January 2025. So sorry Mr putin will not be able to see the success of his troops.
nobody here cares about your predictions bitch. Most likely the admin will remove your stupid post, as he should
GFY ya stupid kike troll!
What about Kherson offensive?
6 sux weeks to take Kherson, according to Zelensgay
Well done Russians
this sow pace shows a lack of manpower and coordination. The air force, as usually from the very begining of this war, is missing.
lgbt grinader not suitable for sausage but grade b pet food—but must exclude diseased brain
Estonians recognized at an exhibition in Moscow “Army 2022 Forum” an armored car (made in South Africa) that they presented to Ukraine. The captured “Mamba” is intact and still operational. Lol, how nice is that. Thank you Tallinn!
Where did Estonia get the vehicle from or did they buy them from South Africa.
I have no idea, but I guess they bought it from SA. Now it’s in Russian hands.
Its a normal thing in war. You use and recycle what you can. You can get problems, because You much not have spareparts for them.
They brought them from a South African Military Vehicle Group which has a branch in Estonia called “The Armoured Group ” -plenty of advertising on the web for the company.
Thanks. I didn’t realise they sold them overseas. They look like they are based on the Landrover, set high to mitigate a mine blast. They learnt mainly from the Rhodesian war and their own wars in Namibia and a little from their experience in Angola late 1970’s.
Yes, its the landrover thinking. Its relative short and by that very agile in hostile terrain. Instead of making military vehicles from scratch they took their colonial vehicles and armed them.
This one is typical. We might find many kind of versions for that in the old brittish colonies.
The big mistake for britts in the start of WW2 was their vehicles was made to meet coloniel enemies armed with riffles only. So high was important too like a fortress.
An easy job for the germans.
I think its a gift. Its updated.
Estnia and others are given many gifts fro aroud the world. They started with nothing. This is an exelent transporter for 9 soldiers, a driver and one at the machinegun.
The people inside are only protected from machineguns and mortars. Thats normal for that kind of transpotation.
Its a very good infantery transporter. Its light armed and very good in terrain.
How are Wagnerite nazis doing lately? Heard their channel is quiet for some days now. :D
It’s on again, you can check here: youtube.com/watch?v=h51EhyzTYeI
They have establish one point of entry into Bakmut. Now they are waiting for surrounding areas to be brought under control so that Bakmut can be safely attacked from 3 sides. To continue before that is ready would be suicide but rest assured they will be busy again soon enough and I am sure they are grateful for your concern about their safety.
If you want to keep up with un biased reports on a daily basis try youtube.com/watch?v=7bIrYo6CxWo&ab_channel=NewWorldEcon Then you won’t make comments that show ignorance but knowledge not that I think you are really interested in that.
Unbiased coverage via JewTube you say, GTFOH, too funny!
Individuals have their own sites on youtube so that people who know the MSM can’t tell the truth turn to private sites to seek the truth. As many are continually censured or even blocked means they have to be careful how they present their shows. As you haven’t even bothered to look at the many sites that give daily military updates shows your lack of information so I guess you are the loser for it. One who doesn’t seek information from as many sources as possible to ascertain the truth might as well just watch the MSM and take whatever Joe tells you. Why is it so easy to read comments and know they were written by a dumb fuk. Read yours to find out.
Its must be true if I agree with You + +
Whether its a small village or a great city, it always makes me happy to read that the Russians and their allies have kicked the nasty ukrops out and reclaimed the place in question for the Motherland. Putin is of course a master tactician and even though his style of warfare is a tad on the slow side for my personal liking, there is no denying the effectiveness of his tactics. Slowly but surely the Putin strategy will result in a spectacular victory for the real good guys of this conflict, for the brave soldiers of the great president cannot be defeated by the evil vermin of the corrupt western countries, no matter what they do. I don’t think Putin is bothered about the SMO dragging on the way it does when his enemies are experiencing record levels of inflation. At the same time Russia are controlling gas market of Europe. The pathetic leaders of Europe still haven’t got a clue who they are dealing with, being outsmarted by the same man over and over again. I love it.
None there want a mother or father like that. Instead of Hitler they got Stalin. None wished for none of that.
Jens I am back. Have you missed me. I see you haven’t improved your comment knowledge but of course you have no interest in doing that. ” More like you know anything… blah blah … ” Hmmm . Really Jens, If you knew anything you would know that to reduce their casualties Russia has reverted to using artillery to demolish the built up defenses and blow the defenders to smithereens leaving the few remaining shell shock Ukrainians left standing to be mopped up by firstly tanks then finished off by the infantry for any that haven’t run away or surrendered. That method is well understood by all including NATO and the US who watch intently so as they will know how to counter Russia when they go to war. You alone Jens fail to understand that. I was hoping you would have improved a little , apart from dropping your stupid English waffle , but I see you still continue to waffle bull manure. By the way how is your Mum. Has she recovered yet.
Sure. You probatly has counted the dead ones Yourself too.
My Mum is smiling but in her grave. Now she is well paid assisting the necrophiles. Some of the necrofiles prefare everything done in the dark.
We have upgraded Our ambitions. After a brittish collapse we will buy it and join it to EU again. It after all was hours for some time in the vikings.
dearest customers, most employees have moved to Israel and USA. I tried to recruit Sawyer and his eskimo boy friend and friesian but we don’t like 3 way lgbt perversions….I may need to relocate to Maryland
If You are a polar bear try fairbanks. I heard Putin wille merry Sarah pahlin there.
They wil start an ececreme shop there and try to make the bears cool. It goes for the brownies from behind colored russians too.
10 russian bears in the graveyard is better then one on the roof.
This thrust into Vershina is the type of maneuver likely to bear fruit. Imagine a new generation of soldier emerging nine months from now, inspired by the welcoming denizens.
This is the most nonsensical waste of lives since WWI.
Fitch (US company) is lying about Ukrain national debts. From partial default (rating RD) Fitch has just upgraded its rating to CCC despite the fact that Ukraine has restructured its debts what means there was a paying drop this week. In reality Ukraine’s Rating would be DD. Total default. So official state or company is allowed to invest in Ukraine. @SF please publish this hard facts. The West is lying and cheating about Ukrain treasury. No investor can put money in an bankrupt and failed state! The truth has to be named now. Ukraine cannot pay back its debts. And the USA is backing them with lies. Each credit you grant to Ukraine is lost for sure.
Everything will be paid by us. Ukraine has no economy. By thats You can calm down your worries or hate.
We dont cover. We are granters no matter what. Most likely You are one of those, which preddicted the dollar would collapse 3 times las week too.
Your mistake is You try to put Our edonomic systems and caolasity into Your own pri mitive and almost collapsed context.
You sompletly ignore we didnt collapse and dont see the toold. Fx debt mainly is investments for tools to produce and distribute. By that they are no minus as long as they give more then the loan for it.
Here You of course has to add we educate and work hard. We are rewarded by that. If not we would sit on our sofas looking TV and eating pizzas. Maybee there was not invented TVs and Pizzas.
Thats the hard facts. I actually lives in them. Ukras has no economy. They do what they can. They are obligated to do it and want to. They are normal.
Russians and arabic Muhammed economists are like crashlanders on Mars.
Your kind are so infected in how we are by Your own. You not even read about it even its free what kapitalisme is and the results. Our results are much better then Your versions.
why are ukies bogged down everywhere? where are their famous himar dildos? why do moron mercs so frequently kinzhaled into mass graves? why Tom Sawyer denied elementary school diploma? these metaphysical questions only known to master jens
These are very philosophical questions, but for sure there will be a logical answer ‘without too much pathos’ (like the Russians say) for each of them.
With all my respects, SouthFront always go several days late for news. This used to be a vanguardistic military website but every time more and more you are late on the news and post many “sentimentaloid” articles wich give zero value to the individuals.
Dozens of foreign mercenaries (mostly from Poland), fighting for a cheap comedian against Moscow, have been killed in an attack on a compound in the city of Kharkov and now the soldiers of unfortune can go to spend their ‘fistful of dollars’ in hell. “A temporary base of foreign mercenaries in the city of Kharkov was hit with a ground-based high-precision weapon. More than 90 militants were killed,” MoD’s spokesman Lt. General Konashenkov announced during his daily briefing on Thursday.
So one village taking by Russian “Blitzkrieg” forces? 🤣
Thanks for expressing your B.S. troll opinion!
Over 90 mercenaries killed in the city of Kharkov using a temporary base there -Igor Konashenkov -80 in Kherson .
Russia says Ukraine ready to carry out Nuclear provocation on Zaporozhye power plant to coincide with UN visit on Friday.
The six largest EU nations made no promises of more weapons throughout July to Ukraine –USA complains.
Vivea russia 🇷🇺 heureusement qu elle existe sinon ce monde serait corrompu par les americains imperialiste sioniste
mercs are getting killed day by day
Ukras has been kind there giving them space for the many new graves.
