Victory In Soledar Shows How Russia Militarily Controls The Conflict

Click to see full-size image

Using a small portion of its soldiers and resources, Moscow manages to control more and more strategic territories, imposing severe losses on the Kiev’s neo-Nazi regime.

Written by Lucas Leiroz, researcher in Social Sciences at the Rural Federal University of Rio de Janeiro; geopolitical consultant.

Despite the unsubstantiated discourse of the western media about a possible “Ukrainian victory”, Russian forces continue to advance on the battlefield, obtaining important territorial gains and controlling strategic points that will be fundamental to defeat the Kiev’s neo-Nazi regime in the near future. In the second week of January, the city of Soledar was the main focus of the conflict, with Russian troops achieving total control of the region, imposing a great loss on the enemy.

On January 10, the Russian private military company Wagner Group notified that it had completely taken over the city of Soledar, neutralizing the enemy forces that were concentrated there. Hundreds of Ukrainian soldiers died or were captured during the intense fighting. The head of the Wagner Group, Russian businessman Yevgeny Prigozhin, commented on the case in a public statement about the takeover of Soledar. Prigozhin emphasized that only the Wagner Group worked in the region, without support from any other combat unit of the Russian forces:

“Wagner units have taken control of all the territory of Soledar. I want to emphasize that no units other than the Wagner fighters took part in the assault on Soledar”, he said on January 10. The next day he made another statement, updating about the number of casualties and highlighting that the entire city is under Russian control. He estimates that around 500 Ukrainians were killed. He also stated that, as the enemy troops were neutralized and all civilians previously evacuated, there is no need to create a humanitarian corridor in Soledar.

“I want to repeat that Soledar has been fully liberated and cleared of Ukrainian army units (…) The Ukrainian troops that refused to surrender have been destroyed (…) The entire town is littered with the bodies of Ukrainian servicemen (…) There can be no word of any humanitarian corridor”, he added.

The victory in Soledar is undoubtedly important from a military point of view, as it guarantees Moscow’s forces a privileged geographical position, which will be very useful for the next stages of the conflict. By controlling Soledar, the Russians can cut off some of the most important supply routes for the Ukrainian forces that still occupy some regions of the Donetsk People’s Republic, such as Bakhmut, which is expected to be also fully liberated soon. In this way, by expelling the Ukrainian military from the city, the Russians significantly advance in the objective of consolidating the reintegration of Donetsk into the Russian Federation.

However, there is another important factor in this event, which is the weakening of Western propaganda about a possible “Ukrainian victory” or “counter offensive”. As Prigozhin emphasized, only Wagner Group was involved in the fighting in Soledar, while other Russian units were focused on other regions. Therefore, the Russians managed to control a key strategic zone using only the power of a private military company, without having to deploy any of the recently mobilized soldiers on the field.

This shows how Moscow, despite recently increasing the number of troops involved in combat, continues to employ only a small portion of its military capacity in the special operation. There are basically two reasons for adopting this strategy: the first and most important is to avoid civilian casualties, which inevitably increase when combat intensity is high; the second is to avoid heavy losses of troops and resources in exhausting battles. With this strategy, the Russians have achieved a slow but safe progress, without major losses of soldiers and resources, in addition to maintaining the lowest ratio of civilian casualties in a war since the WWI.

Indeed, if it was the Russian intention to advance devastatingly and control as many territories as possible in a short time, Moscow could allocate a large number of mobilized soldiers in the regions controlled by Ukraine, as well as further intensify the use of artillery and air power. But, on the contrary, Russian strategy is focused on bombing infrastructure and advancing on the ground with the minimum possible number of soldiers. Thus, deaths of both Russians and civilians are avoided.

In this sense, the victory in Soledar using only the potential of the Wagner Group shows how Moscow really maintains the military control of the conflict. By employing few resources and avoiding unnecessary casualties, important achievements have been made. While, on the other hand, the Ukrainians increasingly waste their resources, lose their soldiers and are unable to maintain any effective strategic planning, despite the support they receive from NATO.

Anybody paying attention for the last twenty years saw the Ukrainian Nazi problem. It was in mainstream Five Eyes media. And suddenly the Ukretard troll brigade latched onto their CIA-style up-is-down “Russian Nazis” trope. You chuds are totally nuts because you think other people believe your make-it-up-as-you-go propaganda. 14 SS Galicia. Nachtingal. Right Sektor. Svoboda. Azov. Aidar. Tornado. On and on and on it goes, and you stupid cunts play little games like this. Pathetic.

USA is a shithole, EU is becoming one

There was a TV talk show in Romania, back to 1996 or something, with two great historians, Alex Mihai Stoenescu and Florin Constantiniu if I remember right, who were calling for attention regarding what is happening with nationalist movements in Ukraine and the dangers of this turning into rogue nazy militias.

At least some Romanian secret services and police for sure knew something about that in 2000 or so since some of these groups tried to expand their criminal activities in Romania and Bulgaria. For sure they wrecked havoc in Budapest for awhile, with racketeering, female and children sexual slavery, extortion, torture, murder etc.

All of a sudden we end up sending money to these terrorists, SS Dirlewanger zombie got lose!?

Western media just write one by one what Selensky is telling them. They even do not dare to ask. But Selensky is lying all the time and I there will be the turning point when even the media do not follow him and the western democrats will stop to support him. A ceasefire on Christmas for example would have been the best for Ukrainian Soledar. Gave them time to reinforce. But surprise president clown S. refused to this Russian proposal. And today he has gotten the bill for this. It is time to tell everyone in the world who is the liar and clown. Don’t give weapons to this guys!

jens holm

You have no idea about western medias not even having contact with them and us.

But one thing is correct. Zelinsky is a sober elected President with a swober elected PM behind him in those matters. It would be strage if his job was not to defend his own country as well as it goes.

You again has censured away the UN resolations about it and how and why Ukaine was made. You are the ones, which collapsed and Empire all the way to west of DDR, to Turkey and in Caucasus and Asia too.

jens holm

Do You want us to die laughing by the joke about ceasefire too. You just write internal crap

They’re not allowed to, its a dictatorship in Ukraine, The Zelensky regime has complete control of the mainstream media, all information from tv, radio, social media plus forced conscription or death squads if you refuse, Its literally that bad for the Ukrainians. If any conscript refuses to be ground meat and go die in the front lines the wife and family of that conscript receives not pension or benefits once the Ukrainian goes through the meat grinder. Hopefully this is the last time this wretched Anglo Zionist criminal cabal takes over an entire nation.

jens holm

Of coiurse they are. They are in warmode because of war.

But stupidists like You just ignore the many othe medias are out of the Goverment control.Fx they can use Facebook, which is forbidden in Rustica.

Ukriane also has many foreign journalists and from the frontzones as well.

The refugees here in Denamrk has contact to their relatives as they wish. By that our part of the world get all kind of infomation and in pictures and videos as well.

Hopefully its the last time the corrupt oligarc USSR museum Rusticans try to take over another state.

Look at Map for March 17, 2022 and compare it to todays map, and then talk to me about Russian military supremacy.

This invasion was a terrible mistake.

Soledar is not yet taken.

But let the propaganda roll.

7even-N-6

So all the dead Ukrainian bodies laying all over the ground in Soledar that’s just propaganda those are all fake Blow-up dolls right Jon? The same blow-up dolls that you’ve been dry humping and squirting to since you were 12 years old, you’re probably 16 now.

Jon

No doubt there are hundreds of dead on both sides. And more to come. Tragic and avoidable.

Clyde

Yep. The Americans could have left the duly elected Ukrainian government to make the gas deal with Russia in 2013, instead of overthrowing the government and using the far-right in the new regime to destabilize the region with a state terror operation. But they didn’t. They overthrew the government, trained, supported and supplied the coup regime in their terror assault on Donbas, and encouraged Krusty the Klown of Kiev in his very public campaign to put the Ukrainian state at the disposal of NATO as part of the US strategy against Russia.

7even-N-6

That is a good clear and basic breakdown for anyone to understand. The only logical explanation as to why anyone in their right mind actually supports the Zelensky criminal cartel is that they’re brainwashed to the core and they believe anything they hear on CNN, BBC etc. The people that support Zelensky are quadruple vaxxed and I guarantee you at least one member of their family still wears a mask while driving alone in their automobile.

Deep State map google it! It is an Ukrainian source and there you can see Soledar was taken by Russia.

AliG

Just look at deep state map from Ukraine. They commit the lose of Soledar. Only president S refuses this. The vice defence minister of Ukraine spoke days ago from the difficulty in Soldar but Mr president told the media Soledar holds firm. Sorry deep state map will open our eyes that Selensky is lying all the time.

Isser Harel

Russian electronic experts need to conduct regular and systemic sweeps for listening devices and other momentary burst communications equipment left behind deliberately by the retreating nazi pigs. These types of sweeps need to be taught and shared throughout the Russian military so as to have regular troops aware of such possibilities and devices. An aware army is indeed a powerful anti sabotage and anti partisan force. Leave nothing to chance.

Yesterday Selensky clown told the western media Soledar holds firm. This shows everyone in the west that this clown is a big liar.

There are three elements of modern warfare, military, economic and minds. Economic Ukraine is down and relays on the money of the west. Military Russia is gaining ground. Two of three are in favour of Russia and the third mind of the people is being destroyed by Selensky which such foolish lies. Looks like a good year for Russia.

Here is a big thank to monkey president Selensky who now starts to embrace the western media and people with his lies.

The problem with Russian offensive is that they do not have coordinated attacks. It is either only land or only air. It is never Wagner + Rockets + Mi24 + Sukhoi on one objective synchronized all at once with additional 2-3 false objectives for chaos and confusion.

Lucas, I think you are drawing the wrong conclusion. The Wagner Group has achieved what the regular Russian army could not and lost many troups in trying. The Wagner Groups is very professional. The incentives as a private contractor with voluntarily employed professional soldiers make it vey capable. The regular Russian army suffers a lot from corruption and is quite ineffective.

Up to what age were the National USA Guard members called up for the Operation Iraqi Freedom?

It is the same system, unlike Ukronazis which take people of the streets.

“On Dec. 18, 2011, when the final U.S. troops crossed the Iraqi border into Kuwait, the National Guard had deployed more than 250,000 Guard members in support of the war.

Already participating in combat operations in Afghanistan, the National Guard lived up to its motto of “Always Ready, Always There,”… https://www.nationalguard.mil/News/Article/576180/the-national-guards-contribution-300000-plus-iraq-deployments/
