The Russian Defense Ministry has reported that a large number of weapons supplied by Western countries to Ukraine in the last few months have been seized.
Russian forces have taken out 211 military facilities of Ukraine’s military infrastructure, including 17 control points and communication centers, 19 S-300 and “Osa” air defense systems, and 39 radar stations. Six combat aircraft, one helicopter and five unmanned aerial vehicles were shot down, and 67 tanks and other armored combat vehicles and 16 multiple rocket launchers were destroyed.
Direct strike from the ultra-low altitude of the Russian attack helicopter, likely Mi-24, with unguided air-to-surface missiles:
By the evening of February 25, DPR units had broken through the defenses of of the Ukrainian Armed Forces (UAF) and the nationalist battalions, advanced up to 25 km and reached Volnovakha.
The LPR armed forces advanced up to 21 km and captured Tryohizbenka.
UPDATE (11 a.m. local time, February 26) — The information that the cities of Starobelsk and Severodonets were handed over by the UAF without fire was not confirmed. Video evidence showing that Ukrainian units are deploying artillery and equipment inside the residential areas to defense. There is information about the beginning of fighting on the northern approaches to Severodonetsk. — The Ukrainian Armed Forces surrendered Starobelsk and Severodonets without a fight. The UAF are reportedly preparing evacuation from Ugledar in the DPR. According to several reports, Zelensky ordered some UAF units to leave the frontlines near the DPR and LPR and to move to Kiev and Kharkiv to help hold these directions. This information may be the reason of the withdrawal of the UAF from Starobelsk and Severodonetsk in the LPR.
The withdrawal of the UAF from these areas are expected in the coming days, as Russian troops advancing from Crimea were coming to the rear of the grouping in Donbass, threatening to encircle most of the Ukrainian forces. Accordingly, it is expected that part of the UAF units would retreat to Dnipropetrovsk and Kharkiv, while some units would retreat to Mariupol, if possible, to reinforce the city’s garrison. At the same time, the speed of retreat measures from heavily fortified positions demonstrates that priorities have probably changed.
The video reportedly showing the outermost houses in the settlement of Starobelsk was shared by local sources. It is not clear who struck the settlement. It could be either the Russian side, which tried to hit the retreating enemy forces, or the Ukrainian units, which tried to cut off the advancing Russian troops. At the same time, there are no signs of destroyed equipment or manpower of any of the warring sides.
The Russian units that occupied Severodonetsk allowed the Ukrainian units to conduct a military evacuation from the city on trucks without heavy military equipment.
In the late evening of February 25, there were fightings in the Kharkiv industrial zone on the southeastern outskirts of the city. The Russian Air Force destroyed an UAF fuel and lubrication base in the city’s industrial zone. The Kharkiv Tank Factory was set on fire.
By midnight, fightings near Kherson and Kharkiv subsided. Fighting continued in Zaporizhzhia, Mykolaiv, and Chernihiv regions.
Sporadic fire exchanges have been breaking out in Melitopol. On February 25, a full-fledged offensive on Zaporizhia and Mykolaiv has not yet succeeded with Russian forces.
The UAF is also using civilian infrastructure in other cities: in particular, a school building in Mariupol has been allocated for the group’s headquarters. The city’s buildings, including multi-story buildings, are saturated with military equipment and firing positions of Ukrainian units. The civilian population’s way out of the city is blocked.
On the night of February 26, active firing of anti-aircraft guns by the Ukrainian armed forces was observed in Odessa.
A missile strike hit the Starokonstantinov airfield in Khmelnitsky Oblast, where the Ukrainian Bayraktar TB2 UAVs purchased from Turkey are based.
Near Kiev, the offensive halted at the Irpen-Bucha line, and fighting resumed by midnight. The use of Kalibr missiles was reported. The Ukrainian command prepares Kiev to defend itself and deploys artillery and military equipment deep into the city. In recent hours, gunfire has been heard in many areas of the city, including the center. There is video evidence showing that the uncontrolled distribution of weapons has led to a sharp increase in criminal activity in the city. Ukrainian security forces are attempting to disarm the gangs whenever possible, to the detriment of the city’s defense capabilities.
Throughout February 25, despite advances, Russian units continued to suffer losses, especially to rear columns. Several artillery and supply columns were destroyed in the Kharkov and Kherson regions and on the approaches to Kiev. All of the destroyed units moved in the tactical depths of the advancing Russian forces.
Apparently, the reason for this combative approach lies in the order to act as if they are in neutral or even friendly territory occupied by the “enemy”.
It seems that the Russian command falsely perceives 2022 as 2014, forgetting about the eight years of what they themselves label as nationalist propaganda. Today, the majority of Ukraine’s population treats the Russians as enemies. The exceptions are the southeastern, southern, and partially southwestern regions of the country.

CIAtrolls and ukrobots are crying and raging 🤗🤡
Final hours of Zellerboys Ukropistan. Final days of the crumbling americant empire…
C’mon Russia —- it’s long past time to break out your TOS-1A thermobaric systems.
I LOVE the smell of burnt bandarists in the morning !
If they are able to get civilians out of Kiev, then they will start roasting banderites.
Demilitarisation is achievable but denazification is harder. Denazification may require processing the whole population like criminals and interviewing them all and sorting them into a hierarchy of villainy, which is how it was done at the end of WW2.
As the old saying goes — If needs must !
It’s easy – just wipe out the entire Azov battalion. Hold a few show trials with gruesome executions and then declare it done.
People will think twice abut Nazifying in future …
NATO wants to turn the Ukraine into another Syria.
They’re going to have to get ISIS inserted if they want to do that … not going to work in a majority Christian country.
And we haven’t had fundamentalist jihadi christians since the last Crusade , if I remember correctly …
You will have chechens running around soon enough, chopping off heads. Good substitute for ISIS.
Of course. But can they? How will the fascists be supplied? And more importantly, who would want to join in a losing war? Fascists usually pick the easy money side. I don’t see it being easy here. Distributing weapons was a good move towards that, but will that be enough?
Ukraine? There is no such country. Artifitial entity created by the bolshevik in1918. Using russian land. All people there are russians. Check DNA. I support the ceaning of the lands from the ukro-fasists. All crimes of the Biden family will be revealed. Go Russia!
Third day of fighting and Putin achievement are so small but loses are incredibly hig in Russian army, what a failure of the mighty army. Weapons for all Ukrainians who want to fight Putin army are arriving in Kiev we will push back the Russian army and we will take back Crimea and all areas wich Putin think are his. Today they history is written but in the favour of democracy not Communism
Take a brake fella. You must be exhausted writing all that false propaganda all day long :-)
Keep playing your video wargames moron.
You have No Clue!
слава богу ! There is a misconception about this war. Russia didn’t start it, Russia finally decided to end it. The hostilities were initiated with the Maidan coup d’état. Since then, there was a low-level war of the Maidan regime or more properly, Western interests against Eastern Ukraine and Russia. This is ongoing. E.g. Liz Truss (British Foreign Minister) vowed to “degrade” the Russian economy. Well, that’s what Britain has done everywhere in the world for two hunderd years… but it remains an act of war. Yes, maybe Russia should have acted earlier. The urgency now is not just helping the new republics though: Under the cover of NATO Defender modified short and long range missiles capable of carrying nuclear warheads have been installed in the Tchernobyl and Kharkiv region. This is likely one of the reasons Russia seeks to occupy these territories at once. So, we’re not only talking about a coup, about abuses, about the Kiev regime’s war on its (supposed) own people, the sell-out of Ukraine, the disregard for former agreements, contracts etc., the financial etc. war on Russia… we’re talking about nuclear weapons that can hit Moscow and other places in a matter of moments. This is an existential threat. So, really, the Russian operation is more than necessary. It truly serves to maintain peace and save lives. I hope talks will be conducted and a peaceful solution, a real one, found. The future must see much more though, namely fundamental changes in monetary and financial systems, strengthening of states versus corporocracy etc.
I generally agree with you.
However, Russia has only recently perfected the hypersonic missiles that can hit the US mainland with a 99% success rate. Such missiles can also sink the NATO carrier fleets anywhere in the world.
Finally a sane mind!
So all those blown up trucks in the convoy are Russian? I struggle to differentiate the two militaries
Dont russian army vehicles participating in this campaign have a big white Z painted on them?
It is mostly Ukraine’s stuff from what I can see. They got hammered while still on their way. Russia is using attack choppers to take them out. Ukraine lost is air-force on the first day. Also Russia took out most of their air-defenses. It is a pretty straight forward tactic. Nothing fancy.
If that Z is anything to go by, then yes.
“Russian command falsely perceives 2022 as 2014,” Not so, SF naivos! these are not civilians ambushing the ruskies’ rearguard . These are neonazi teams acting after allowing themselves to be absorbed by the advancing front. UKR has been thoroughly ruined after 2014. No CIA-arranged propaganda can cover that up for normal UKRians.
100% Nazis are a minority.
Bigest mistake of Putin to attack Ukrainians wich they fought many wars and they are fighting from 8 years nonstop,while Russian New troops don’t have experience in fighting and aswell is easier to defend yourself then when you attack because you don’t know where your enemy is hiding. Now Is confirmed that Russia will be removed from SWIFT. And south front please don’t lie anymore just say the truth what is happening on the ground. The family of Russian millitary personnel they don’t even know that they are fighting Ukrainians they are in shock but slowly the Kremlin cannot hide anymore the fake propaganda. Body bags of Russian soldiers are piling up. Ukraine army had opened a hot line for Russian families to call and ask if their dead or alive family members are in Ukraine. I really feel sorry for Russian millitary personnel. They have no idea what is happening to them they are brainwashed
NATO trolls going full retard mode. Must be a bad day for Ukraine army again. That was a total waste of weapons and money. They didn’t even put up a fight. But NATO always had much more own problems than enemies :-)
Bigest mistake of Zellerboy to attack Donbas wich they fought many wars and they are fighting from 8 years nonstop,while Ukrobot New troops don’t have experience in fighting and aswell is easier to defend yourself then when you attack because you don’t know where your enemy is hiding. Now Is confirmed that Ukropistan will be removed from SWIFT. And SBU ukrobots please don’t lie anymore just say the truth what is happening on the ground. The family of Azovisis terrorist personnel they don’t even know that they are fighting Donbas they are in shock but slowly the Rada cannot hide anymore the fake propaganda. Body bags of Azovisis soldiers are piling up. Russian army had opened a hot line for ukrobots families to call and ask if their dead or alive family members are in Ukraine. I really feel sorry for the ukrobot millitary personnel. They have no idea what is happening to them they are brainwashed
“Bigest mistake of Putin to attack Ukrainians wich they fought many wars ”
Really? How many wars?
Syria? Chechnya? Dagestan? Afghanistan ? Georgia ?
No one even reads your endless crap and hysterical bitching you retarded insane sewer rat from Lwow toilet…
So what does the situation of protests look like?
Blah blah blah what’s 10000 soldiers lost for the red army? They lost 25-30 million in world war 2! However we do know that NATO is willing to fight the Putin till the last Ukrainian …..Ukraine mostly dumb as a brick ….Zelensky pretending to be in Kiev making videos on a Hollywood set telling these idiots to die for a fictional country at best. Putin when he’s done cleaning house of nazis will teach the rest of you how to speak Russian properly! Ukrainian language is what happens when u teach monkey to speak Russian
Did Russia halt the advance on Kyiv as they said they would? Looks like Zelensky does not want to negotiate now.
Time to get down and dirty for Russia.
Ukrainian army and Nazi/militia formations need to be bled dry.
(Preferably with air or artillery bombardment.)
Don’t worry about civilian casualties. The MSM puppets are going to cry “atrocity!” Even if nobody is hurt.
Russian Operation Anaconda…slow advance but strong throttling
His decision is right Putin has all information we have not, he is protecting the Oekraïnian citizen, other whise the war was allready won an forgetten !
Hello Putin fans!
It looks like you start to loose the PR war and maybe the ground war too…or soon…
