As of April 29, the Russian military and the armed forces of the Donetsk People’s Republic (DPR) and the Luhansk People’s Republic (LPR) continue their steady advance on Kyiv’s positions in the Donbass region.
To the south of the Kharkiv region, around Izyum city, intense fighting continues along the entire frontline. Russian units are advancing towards the Barvenko-Slavyansk road.
Fierce fighting is taking place along the right flank of the offensive, near the village of Velyka Kamyshevakha, as well as near the village of Novaya Dmytrivka.
At the same time, Kiev’s forces continue to pull back their units from the remaining bridgehead on the left bank of the Seversky Donets River. From the Liman-Yampil area and the Severodonetsk region, they tried to retain their most advanced positions to the east between Severodonetsk and Popasnaya, where fierce clashes continue.
On the frontline near Severodonetsk and Popasnaya, the Russian military and DPR forces continue their attempts to advance. However, Kiev’s forces are showing fierce resistance. Very limited gains were reported in Popasnaya.
Near Donetsk, the main hotspot is the area north of Avdeevka, where the DPR forces had some tactical successes.
In what appears to be a response to the recent advance by the Russian military, early on April 28, Kiev’s forces launched a massive missile strike with Tochka-U ballistic missiles and heavy rocket launchers on the residential areas of the central part of the city of Kherson in southern Ukraine.
The target of the missile attack on Kherson was the residential areas around Ushakov Avenue, where kindergartens, schools and many social institutions were located.
Russian air defense units repelled the Ukrainian missile attack. Twelve heavy rockets were shot down as well as two Tochka-U ballistic missiles were intercepted over the city.
Later in the morning, five civilians were killed and 21 others were wounded, including two minors, as a result of an attack by Kiev forces with BM-21 Grad rocket launchers on the Kirov district of Donetsk.
In its turn, the Russian military continued its missile strikes on high-value military targets in different regions of Ukraine.
On April 28, Russian missiles destroyed the facilities of the Artyom rocket and space industry enterprise in the city of Kiev.
Sea-based Kalibr missiles destroyed three traction power substations in the areas of Fastov, Krasnoselka and Polonnoye railway junctions.
At night, the operational-tactical and army aviation hit 112 military assets of Kiev’s forces. Among them: 95 gatherings of manpower and military equipment.
According to the Russian Ministry of Defense, about 500 Ukrainian military personnel, 59 armored vehicles, artillery mounts and cars were destroyed, as well as more than 60 fighters of the nationalist formation Donbass near Rubtsy of the DPR.
In addition, two Buk-M1 and Osa AKM air-defense systems were destroyed near Veseloe and Prishib, as well as two ammunition depots near Novoselovka and Slavyansk.
Russia missile and artillery troops also performed 1299 strikes on April 28. 975 more strikes were carried out at night. At least 58 command posts, 183 strong points of Ukrainian troops, 1746 gatherings of manpower and military equipment, 246 positions of Ukrainian artillery and 21 ammunition depots were hit.
Furthermore, two Ukrainian S-300 anti-aircraft missile systems, a Tochka-U tactical missile launcher and an electronic warfare station were destroyed near Barvenkovo.
At the same time, Russian air defense means shot down 13 Ukrainian unmanned aerial vehicles, including “Bayraktar-TB2” on the Russian-Ukrainian border in the area of Novovodyannoye.
According to the most recent briefing by the Russian Ministry of Defense, since the beginning of the special military operation in Ukraine, 142 warplanes, 111 helicopters, 634 drones, 278 air-defense systems, 2638 tanks and other armored combat vehicles, 304 multiple rocket launchers, 1,175 field artillery and mortars, as well as 2,467 units of special military vehicles of Kiev forces have been destroyed.
The battle in the Donbass region will likely heat up in the upcoming few days. Kiev’s forces have been showing fierce resistance. However, the Russian military and the armed forces of the DPR and LPR appear to be going to speed up their ground operations in the region.
Very soon sone 20000 loyal nazis will give their life for Zelensly. And no mention of this heroic deed will happen in western media. What a shame.
I was just about to post a comment, but when I saw that the pesky troll, JHK, already had posted 12 of the 18 comments so far, all just nonsense, I said to myself why bother when SF don’t even seem to care about the comment sections any more.
Sadly but I agree. Not just this article, but every comment section here is infested with this idiot troll JHK or “hans raus” idiot troll with fake 1000 names. I wouldn’t be surprised if this “JHK” is just another manifestation of “hans” schizophrenia. Truly insane individual.
Hans loves Jews and this one hates them ,but who knows perhaps it is the same lunatic. Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde .
I just read you comment, and as I posted this reply to you, I can see that at least 6 of the 7 comments below your comment are posted by trolls. SF, you spend so much time on your articles and then let it all be destroyed by these horrible trolls. Why?
I suggest you write them to firstname.lastname@example.org
perhaps they will do something if enough people complain.
At least SF don’t censor likedoes RT. Any comment I made on the verified.. graphene, AIDS, hep, cancer, parasite and nanobot laden mRNA injections, are immediately wiped. Phyza infiltrated or what?
Also on RT any comment full et disclosure.. is wiped.. ie Swiss Meier’s over 700 recorded face yo face chats, (under Billy’s Contacts)… with a group of of human ets on a now completed thousands years mission.. cia controlled?
theyfly.com.. and, before you scream FRAUD.. note USAF Intel Lt. Col. W. Stevens and his team failed to debunk Meier after years of research. The investigation is here. ”YouTube. Contact: Billy Meier Documentary (1982)
I think the reason why they removed some of your comments, isn’t because of the comment itself, but because they don’t want to be banned by the Europeans. Well they don’t need to worry about that now as their TV channel has been banned for about two months now by the EU and the English.
Slava Russia! At this pace… By may 9th (2066…) the all Donbass will be easily taken! Don’t betray your brothers, friends and supports… Karma is a bitch
So they call it attempts to advance now or going to speed it up. The language becomes fuzzier by the day. Grandma agrees, she has an urgent need to use the outhouse. Please RF speed things u.p
Interesting things are going on. According to some sources (including Ukrainian), a large group about 1k ukrainian combatants was completely encircled near the Oskil water accumulation. Another group, about same size, is close to be encircled in Alexandrivka, one of the last ukrainian controlled towns in Herson region – it’s a small village on the coast in west Herson region. Their only way out is a small strip along the coast, toward Nikolaev.
Ukraine now mined and destroyed several bridges over Severski Donets river, apparently pulling out from Liman and other towns north of the river. But Russian troops are already over that same river on the other side of Slaviansk / Kramatorsk agglomeration, so that move only helps buy some time, nothing more.
I wonder if they are not the same group reported wrongly. I first read the news about both as a “large group encircled near Liman”. Thing is there is a village called Liman closed to both areas.
Great news. Things are speeding up on the battlefields of soon to be liberated Novorussia. I can’t wait for the time when all the land between Kharkov and Odessa is united again under one flag … the Russian and/or Novorussian.
“Things are speeding…” I too hope so but been too many times disappointed by Russian snail advancing forces or even withdrawing. That’s why I’ve become more cynical when hearing these “positive news”.
General Gerasimov has taken over planning and control of the Izyum attack. Expect an orderly withdrawal of RF soon.
According to Ukraine. More BS. What is not BS is Poland occupying a lot of Western Ukraine. Oh you Khokhols. If you thought Russia was hard on Banderarites, wait until you see what the Poles do. You will be begging for Russian occupation!
Ukraine should be splitted by Russia and Poland. The end of Fake State of Ukraine is option to more stable Europe.
You know children if you can’t contribute anything more than name calling and lies you should just sit quietly and let the adults have a real conversation. You are boring.
Os soldados russos estão com medo de morre na Ucrânia, estão tendo baixas colosal.
Estão a ir com calma e a poupar civis.
No real gains happened. These small areas have been back and forth for a month or more at this point. Mobilize reserves now.
That is coming on May 9th along with a formal declaration of war on Ukraine.
All the Best Russia and well done. God be with you.
Imaginary deities are not with anybody.. Try.. The Laws of the Creation. (theyfly.com)
Rumor going around is that Russia on May 9th might declare war on Ukraine and order full mobilization. I would love to see that happen, but I am skeptical. I wonder though if people understand the implications of that? Countries supplying arms to Ukraine will now be co-belligerent. They will have to make a decision. Keep sending arms and risk being at war with Russia. Since Russia despite issuing half a dozen warnings that arms convoys are legitimate targets, still refuses to bomb them, perhaps this is the justification they need.
Something has to be done. This Lend-Lease agreement will see the US sending Abram Tanks, F16’s Some Howitzers with 500km range. Can you Imagine that? They will start hitting Moscow and St Petersburg right away.
General AI sez.. arms convoys are legitimate targets, still refuses to bomb them… source? I read only a few rounds of ammo get thru in civvie cars..
Very interesting. Putin is an extremely clever man and ever since he first mentioned May 9th I thought that would be the date when the war was supposed to be over. But it could well be that that date is the starting point of the war … officially!
I’ve been hearing of reports that more conscripts are appearing in the AFU formations in the Donbass. If true, that means the AFU’s most seasoned troops are being killed in larger, and larger numbers. I don’t know how any of the AFu troops can continue to hide in their fortified areas, with the intensity that the Russian artillery is raining down upon them. War truly is hell on earth.
By “advance” SF means “russia retreated in defeat from Kyiv”…heheheh…
They’re going back to Kiev
The Poles/Nato will send in “peace keepers” to defend the Ukrainians from the “genocidal” Russians when the Ukrainian Army surrenders next month
Battlefield experience as taught the russian Army, that a slow but sure advance is better than quick strikes that get destroyed by all the Guided missiles. Keep it up. The smart educated part of the world knows that Russia is fighting NATO and all of its guided weapons.
As NATO is really ramping up it’s lethal aid to the Ukraine, I find it justified to throw nuclear weapons on railroad hubs on the line Korosten- Zhitomir-Winnitsa. That will effectively cut off NATO’s weapon supply
Why nook on railroads when a missile does the trick.. and what about the radiation when Russ grabs that territory next day? Skool hoamwuk fa tumorra dunn?
That plan was ………………………………….STUPID
Nuclear Weapons ……………………..WHY ???
Question : If Ukrainians are fraternal people to Russians. Why are they STILL fighting their Brother Russians who have come to save them from Occidentals ???
Now do you see why Pan-Slavism is a stupid ideology
“BOLSHEVIKS”..is on history books…reading is good!
It is not. Panslavism is fantastic! Problem is – Russians are not Slavs – they are Asians – they have proved it on countless occasions.
Slavic brothers united, will create prosperous and beautiful alternative to the West. You can see proof of it today, just visit Poland, Croatia or Czechia…
Note ALL of those countries are members of the EU /NATO so much for “alternatives”.
And what are Russian casualties?
In Finnish-Russo Winter War according Pavel Petrov 167,976 deceased soldiers though until early 1990’s Soviet claimed to have lost only 48,000. This will give perspective to guess how high Russian losses might really have been. Perhaps 3 times higher than their official figures?
you. nazi admire liars
never believe nazi John
What is with this comment section ???
EVERYONE is either a Jew, Nazi , Homosexual, Zionist, Communist , Fascist, Transsexual, Islamist, Feminist, I’m not even getting to BSDM stuff
One or two idiotic trolls deliberately spamming garbage, or just being crazy. Yet SF allow this for some reason.
Well it’s just RIDICULOUS
Expect more of JHK as the war proceeds, because I’ve noticed there’s a direct relationship to Ukraine’s losses and the dipshit’s posts.
BTW: Anybody see the video of Zelensky’s top advisor Arestovych and the leader of white racist C14 drunk as skunks while singing Nazi drinking songs together?
what I can’t understand is how Russia can have so much destruction of NATO proxy infrastructure and large groupings in Syria and Ukraine, and yet the enemy appears minutely affected on ‘lines of conflict’. please explain
They haven’t taken Azovstal and destruction of Ukies in Dombas still not done. Very disappointed progress, I have to say. Clear evidence of RF military shortcomings.
your transgender miltary lose all wars
“steady advance” That’s what you call only half a mile of territory gained a day? The article should be renamed to “Russians advance like a snail in Donbass.”
Steady is a mathematical term for any progression whatsoever. Even if they advance half a milimeter a day it will still be steady as long as they do it every day…
It is still sieging well fortified defensive positions with less manpower and more heavy weapons. And how well this may turn out, is open.
Probably they are using more heavy weapons to avoid casualties after all the losses in the beginning. But obviously the effect on the fortifications is limited.
But the bombing Ukrainian depots in the hinterland shows some effect. Ukrainians ran out of fuel and NATO has to send in fuel in the coming days. If the Russians can bomb the coming fuel transports, then all the transport of men, weapons and ammunition on the Ukrainian side may get harder and harder and at some point combat readiness will suffer and then maybe the steady advance can turn into a significant advance.
But of course the Russians may supply their troops as well and that may get harder the more they advance away from the railway lines into the Donbas.
God bless Russia against the anglo axis of evil
Anglos are just better than you, and everyone all around the world learns our language willingly and tries their best to come to our country’s because they recognize how superior we are. When was the last time you knew somebody who wanted to go live in eastern europe? Exactly. They all wanna go to UK/US/CA/AUS/NZ. That’s why y’all out east are so butthurt about us these last hundred years or so. We’ve been at the center of two world wars, and we won both of them for you guys. Without us Russia would not exist.
No you didn’t Russia defeated NAZI GERMANY
In fact MOST of the West fell WITHOUT A FIGHT.
your are stupified automatons that cannot think or feel—pathetic…..”amerikians are a different and inferior species”. Stendahl
