Invasion Day 138 – Summary

 The summary of the 138th day of Russian invasion to Ukraine, as of 22:00 – 11th July 2022 (Kyiv time).

Day summary:

Russian forces continue its attempts to break through Ukrainian lines north of Slovyansk, but almost completely ceased all ground operations on other fronts.

Ukrainian President Zelensky ordered the Ukrainian Armed Forces to re-estabilish control over the coastal regions of southern Ukraine. The General Staff now prepares an offensive plan and says that up to one million Ukrainian soldiers might be ready to participate in the offensive.

Ukrainian Forces also continue to target Russian ammunition depots behind the frontline. The recently delivered HIMARS multiple rocket launchers are indeed causing trouble for the Russian army.

Kharkiv Front

  • There was no change on Kharkiv Front.

Bakhmut Front

includes the vicinity of Bakhmut

  • There was no change on Bakhmut Front.

Slovyansk Front

includes the vicinity of Slovyansk and Kramatorsk

Slovyansk direction

  • Geotagged photos on social media dated to July 7 reveled Russian presence on the southern outskirts of Kurulka. Russian troops possibly bypassed Dibrovne and captured the settlement. However, it’s important to note the settlement is located in a valley and poses no advantage for the enemy.
  • Ukrainian forces continue to defend favorable terrain in the vicinity of Mazanivka, Krasnopillya and Dolyna. The enemy is unable to advance south towards Slovyansk in this area.

Correction: Based on the available information and reports by the head of Luhansk Oblast Haidai, it seems Bilohorivka settlement is contested.

US Congressman Spartz has asked Yermak, Zelensky’s Chief of Staff, to resign over his alleged connections with the Russian Federation and his refusal to tackle corruption in Ukraine by appointing pro-Russian bureaucrats to the highest levels of Ukrainian administration. I saw it in Butusov’s censor

About the area of Vysokopolya in the Kherson region. This guy writes that Vysokopolye is under the control of the enemy, but Olgino is under the control of Ukrainians. I believe this dude because he has connections among the Ukrainian military command.

“In the Kherson direction, the enemy is trying to hold Novopetrovka and Arkhangelsk in order to be able to hold Vysokopolye.”

This should mean that Olgino is under the control of Ukrainians

There has been a lot of discussion about Oleksandrivka, unfortunately there are a variety of opinions as to which Oleksandrivka the rumours are adressed.

Reportedly, Velikhy Prokhody is at least partly again under UA control (or never left it over the last weeks).

according to this post the order to attack was just to see how russians would react (found that on the last summary)
t.me/rezident_ua/13182
although it is still very likely that they will soon make a major counterattack on the southern front, but i don’t think that the russians are suprised by it

Name*

Well, the Ukrainians have to do something in my opinion. Otherwise, the Russian side with much more heavy machinery and troops would win in the long term. So this planned attack is not a surprise. However, it will probably take some time until everything is ready, maybe a few weeks.

1. Can the Ukrainians field a competent 1 million man army? 2. Can the Russians match said army and 3. What the he’ll is Putin thinking calling to fight the Americans on the field of battle? If this war has taught us anything it’s that the Russians wouldn’t last long against the USA

MeNeutral
  1. competent.. no, but 1 million is a lot.
  2. match 1 million probably not, but the ammount of artillery would make every attempt to push a massacre
  3. the USA lost against afghanistan and everybody thought russia would stomp ukraine (meaning war is unpredictable) also if WW3 breaks out it would end nuclear
Noelle

‘1 million Army’ does not mean 1 milion guys and gals running with guns. By propotion it would be ~300-400k people in active (combat) duty. Army is a big thing. Ukr. has got now ~600k Army (~200k in combat). It was not said if it is “increase this to 1mln” or “add another 1mln”. Media loves numbers.

Joseph

How does the Ukraine’s use of HIMARS help in terms of providing the Ukrianes with a force multiplier? Can they be used to take out enough of Russia’s. Ammo dumps, FOBs and or headquarters located in the Ukraine?

Santorini

The handful of HIMARs, have confirmed expectations, being the weapon that more clearly offers a distinctive qualitative advantage versus the ex soviet derived MLRS, with higher precision, range and reloading speed, which enables to take out targets with lesser munition and less time of exposure.

Joe

I’m curious if more than just a hand full of HIMARS have been delivered to the Ukraine. With Poland putting in an order for 500 of these devices, 8 seems like a very small number of units. Maybe that’s all they needed to take out unprotected Russian stationary elements with a lot of time to prep

Noelle

they are ‘force diminishers’ at the moment. There is no point in racing with Russia in guns or ammo, they have plenty even if sh*tworthy. But all the ammo in stock in Far East cannot help you when you have nothing where you actually need them. Rail nodes should be next targets.
