Ukraine Lost Battle For Lisichansk But Continues Fighting In Media (Videos)

On July 4th, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin and reported on the progress of the Russian special operation in Ukraine. Shoigu reported on the liberation of the Luhansk People’s Republic which was declared on July 3rd.

Within two weeks, 25 settlements fell under control of Russian-led forces, the largest of which are Severodonetsk, Zolotoye, Gorskoye, Volcheyarovka. The total area of 670 square kilometers was liberate from the Kiev military.

At the same time, 196 Ukrainian tanks and armored vehicles, 12 aircraft and one helicopter, 166 field and mortar artillery guns and 216 vehicles for various purposes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) were destroyed.

Among the main points of the Shoigu’s report to Putin about the course of the special operation, there were the declared losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine:

“Over the past two weeks, the losses of the Ukrainian army amounted to 5,469 people, 196 Ukrainian tanks and armored vehicles, 12 aircraft and one helicopter were destroyed. The AFU abandoned 39 units of tanks, 11 guns and mortars, 48 anti-tank missile systems during the retreat from the city,” Shoigu claimed.

The Defence Minister added that the demining operations are being carried out in Lisichansk.

“The units that took part in active hostilities and achieved success, victories in the Luhansk direction, should rest, increase their combat capabilities. And other military formations, including the “East”, “West” grouping, must perform their tasks according to previously approved plans,” the Russian President ordered.

In turn, the Kiev regime claims its own victory in Lisichansk. The Kiev media spread the reports that in fact control of the Severodonetsk-Lisichansk region had no strategic importance and the AFU withdrawal was not a problem. This is reported days after the Ukrainian President declared that “the fate of Ukraine was being decided in the battle for Severodonetsk”.

Adviser to the head of the office of Vladimir Zelensky Alexey Arestovich even called the surrender of Lisichansk and Severodonetsk a successful operation of the Ukrainian military. According to him, “all the tasks of the operation have been completed.”

Meanwhile, Ukrainian servicemen are lost on the front lines. The soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine share videos complaining that the National Guard of Ukraine withdrew all equipment from Lisichansk and left people to their fate. Such a message was shared on the Telegram channel of the 131st Special Reconnaissance Battalion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

 

Guys, good evening. We have a few questions. We are standing on the Lisichansk direction. Really fuck. The fucking equipment is leaving. Cossacks are leaving, all armored vehicles are leaving. The guys are left without anything. What is the meaning of all this? I don’t fucking understand.

We are fucking fighting with only machine guns with everything that is possible and not fucking possible. The National Guard are fucking ‘handsome’. They just leave, take all the equipment with them, everything.

It’s really fucking insulting. It’s a shame that the Luhansk people, the Kievans are fucking. I’m from the Luhansk region, Anton from the Luhansk region, Sanya from Vinnitsa fucking.

– Don’t touch me.

– And we locals are trying to hold positions, and the normal equipment, which is really armored, which could really help in battle, it all just leaves.

Almost all the roads to Lisichansk were cut by Russian-led forces. However, the city was not completely surrounded. Days ago, the Seversk-Artemovsk (Bakhmut) road was under fire control of Russian artillery.

Judging by the reports from the front lines, it is likely that the warring sides reached an agreement that the AFU units could safely retreat from the trap. On the other hand, no heavy battles were launched in the city.and it avoided heavy damage.

The Russian military shared footage from the Lisichansk-Bakhmut road which confirmed that the retreating Ukrainian units were under control of Russian forces but were not shelled.

 

Ukrainian soldiers also filmed their retreat from the war-torn city:

– Everything is on fire.

– Salvation from hell.

– Go ahead.

– I will not come here anymore.

– We came from there.

Footage of the city of Lisichansk confirmed that it did not suffer the same damage as the city of Mariupol did, for example. The main destructions were reported in the city center, while the residential districts were almost untouched by the battles.

However, Ukrainian forces were preparing for street battles in Lisichansk, there were barricades of civilian cars and buses on the streets, and trenches were dug in the courtyards of residential buildings.

 

After the city of Lisichansk and the whole territory of the Luhansk People’s Republic came under control of Russian-led forces, the advancing units moved in the direction of Seversk, another stronghold of the AFU. In their turn, the Ukrainian military prepared the new lines of defence in advance. The AFU grouping deployed in the region is constantly reinforced in manpower and equipment.

Any thing is possible in the movies goes the saying. That is the problem for Ukraine the PR campaign is coming up against real warfare, where there is no room for spin or fiction – you either take the territory or you lose it, you make the advances or you do the retreats. There is no where to hide from the brutal honesty of war. The PR campaigns, the propaganda are all part of the bouquet of conflict but they can’t in the end cover over real battlefield losses. The Ukrainian Nazis are getting hammered in the field, their hide behind civilians tactic is not working, their drone tactics have been nullified, their ISIS style pickup truck warfare has been redundant alongside their anti tank weapons. That is the reality of war!

NATO has ordered all military personnel to troll Russian websites and plant totally fake pro-NATO and pro-Zelensky fake news.

British Army unveils ‘Twitter troops’ for social media fight

The British Army is to create a new unit for psychological and social media warfare to help Britain “fight in the information age” and control the “narrative” of warfare based on the IDF hasbara model.

Peter Jennings

The Blighty army already has them. One is called the 77th Brigade. Most of them are attached to the signals unit. There are plenty of others employing thousands of servicemen as trolls. They are scratch each other’s backs.

They’ve learned from the Americans to make up their own reality.

The American bastards are not having their evil blocked everywhere, Iran and Argentina joined the BRICS. Russian economy is getting stronger by the day and now even Latins are standing up to the racist Anglo-Zionist trash.

Russia has armed Venezuela quite well with S-300 and SU30MK2 etc and Venezuela is quite big in size, the American losers could not even invade Cuba or Nicaragua let alone a large nationalistic country like Venezuela which is now in a favorable situation with a leftist progressive government in Colombia, which is the US is also trying to undermine. The Latins hate the American racist criminals as much as Indians hate the British. The CIA controls the drug trade in Colombia and has turned it into a whorehouse like Ukraine.

That didn’t stop the american regime from trying just recently, but as with the attack on Iran, when the US embassy was caught organising a coup, the bunko squad that was sent got their asses handed to them.

“The Russian military shared footage from the Lisichansk-Bakhmut road which confirmed that the retreating Ukrainian units were under control of Russian forces but were not shelled.”

Which is absolutely insane. Agreement? What fucking agreement? If they really have an agreement they are crazy to allow their enemy to retreat from encirclement instead of destroying them thoroughly.

Yes, I’m not really sure why they would do that. I’m sure at the end of the day they just want to take the territory without a fight and hopefully keep doing that as Ukraine soldiers have lost a lot of morale and will just keep retreating.

RealityOfWar

If you teach your enemy they can retreat safely, they will retreat in future. Russia has very focused goals – get the Ukrainian Nazi piss out of Dombas. It is clear now that the Ukrainian military is ignoring drugged up Z-elensky orders to die in place while he snorts all over the place. Ukrainian Nazi piss, just get out of other peoples countries! Retreat and live!

Adam Kafei

Why spend the resources to destroy people who probably don’t want to be there in the first place and have been so thoroughly beaten they probably have no will to fight either? Let them go, take the territory for free and have them tell whatever forces they’re regrouping with that you let them go when you could have destroyed them, let them sap everyone else’s will to fight.

This is very much the Russian modus operandi and given what it’s achieved with a mere 200 thousand troops, I’d suggest it works, not to mention if your enemy pulls out in an orderly fashion you have less hostiles to find behind your lines.

Leo

I disagree. It’s irrelevant whether they want to be there or not, if you can destroy your enemy – destroy your enemy. Never let them live (and fight) another day.

CentralAsianStudies

Many of these troops are fed up with the Kiev government. Who is to say that some of these forces will not be the backbone of a potential coup? Or even form a new military force in a new Regime that will form after this conflict? Many of the units that withdrew left behind heavy equipment. Mostly technicals, and APCs and transports were seen in the withdrawal. This also demonstrates that the Ukrainian military is no longer listening to Kievs orders, and now focusing on the military needs of the country, IE saving troops when the battle is lost instead of losing hundred is not thousands for a PR campaign to bolster the pockets of the politicians and elites running the show in Kiev and their benefactors in the West.

Bernard Davis

That is a short sighted view. The real enemy (the Galician Nazi national guard) had fled already. The ordinary Ukrainian conscripts have seen this, and eventually will turn on the Nazis. Russia should do all she can to encourage that schism in the enemy ranks. Mindless slaughter of these poor defeated conscripts would be counterproductive to that end.

Edgar Zetar

I agree with you but would take away the NEVER or ALWAYS word… every sittuation needs judgement according to Laws, Variants, and Achievements… But I Agree i will wipe them all out and not let any of them fight another day. They have not surrender so they are not POWs, they are combat soldiers… no mercy until they surrender and give away their weapons.

Would the Ukrainians be so forgiving? Hell no , they torture their captured . I agree , destroy every last one of them, make an example out of them. .

Edgar Zetar

War is war, and they will be forced to fight and to Torture Russian Soldiers if they can… Above all is USA, then NATO, then UK, then Clown Zelensky… so this is not a war betweem equal powers you known… Russia only haves 150 millions while USA NATO UK and allies have more than 1.5 billion people on the other side… One Russian should take at least 10 Ukrainians so you can fight the next war against NATO.

Mercy is the best weapon the Russkies are showing to these demons so they can go tell the others. They are still Russians too that lost their belief in God almighty and most of them dont want to fight because no one can’t stop the Russkie bear from devouring them , no matter where they go or hide. VIVA MOTHER RUSSIA !!!!!!!

RobinHood

It’s a great deal for both sides. Less losses on both sides, the city is preserved but the Russians still achieve their strategic and political goals of taking Lisichansk and Luhansk. In the same turn, Ukrainians save soldiers who were all bound to die in an encirclement, thus achieving a tactical retreat. Win win situation for both armies

Edgar Zetar

If this was a war between Ukraine and Russia only without any External USA UK Nato intervention I would also negotiate and allow (accept) Ukraine Army retreat without destroying them…. but this is not the case here… they will fight because USA puppet Clown Zelensky will order them to fight to the last one and will torture our soldiers if they can, so no negotiation here, because they only survive to fight again for their Masters and their Masters want to get rid of my Country and Citizens and would not accept that .. Russia Military Leaders are stupid for letting get away from encirclement without destroying them……

Marcelo

A dead soldier, conscripted by force, is useless. A terrified, demoralized and enraged (abandoned by its commanders) soldier will be worst than a defeat. He carries defeat home

Peter Jennings

IMO, the Russian admin wants the Ukrainian soldiers to realise themselves that their cause is lost and they will be indebted to the Russian military for being allowed to escape with their lives. Russian troops have the upper hand and obviously feel that Ukrainian opposition isn’t going to pose much of a problem. The Russian admin are more interested in reconciliation that domination as it will need the cooperation of the Ukrainian people to pull the country from its present plight.

The Russian admin will have much more success by turning the Ukrainian people against their invaders….ie, the US and its nato poodles.

Wisdom of ancient times – Sun Tzu: Thus is the way of maneuvering your army: do not fight against enemies who took higher ground, do not face enemies while they’re charging down hill, do not pursue enemies when they fake defeat, do not go head to head with enemies elite troops, do not take bait from the enemies, do not continue attack enemies that fall back to their own country; when you surround your enemies, leave an opening; do not push too hard on the enemies who are desperate. That’s the basic principle of maneuvering your army. https://www.quora.com/What-is-your-understanding-and-interpretation-of-Sun-Tzus-quote-%E2%80%9CBuild-your-opponent-a-golden-bridge-to-retreat-across-%E2%80%9D

Not before five Ukrainian battalions obliterated half of Russia’s reserves in Severdonetsk. It’s been a well known fact that Lysychansk and Severdonetsk were impossible to defend. Just like Mariupol the cities were supposed to fall months ago given how many terrorist attacks were launched by Russia’s terrorist government that there are no cities left to control.

Forcing anyone to fight to the death is a bad idea, because if they have nothing left to lose, you will lose a lot. Creating a corridor for the extraction of enemy troops and later on shelling it is also a bad idea because you can do it only once. Later on enemy will stay and fight to the death no matter what you do. By sticking to their word Russians can now implement the same tactic again and Ukranians will agree knowing that they won’t be backstabbed. Russians will now go into defensive in the Luhansk area and that’s the wall not even the USA could penetrate. After all, they are neighbors and will continue to be after the war ends. While war is bloody and tragic there is no need whatsoever to make it even more bloodier than needed.

Whoever wrote this is speculating about a ‘deal’ between the parties based on virtually nothing.

Fire control does not mean that the road is cut or that all vehicles will be destroyed or even attacked. The video ‘evidence’ shows the 20 second passage of one vehicle and does not give us any meaningful information at all.

Writing articles full of theories and speculation is not good reporting. However, if SF must do this then they should clearly label the article as speculative opinion.
