Wagner reportedly entered suburb of Stupki north of Bakhmut


Ukrainian military repelled Russian attacks near Hrekivka, Nevske, Kreminna and Dibrova of Luhansk region and Verkhnokamyanske, Krasna Hora, Paraskoviyivka, Bakhmut and Ivanivske of Donetsk region, – General Staff of Armed Forces of Ukraine says in the morning report.

Fighting near Hrekivka implies Russian forces have crossed the Zherebets river.


They may have crossed the river west of Novovodyane. HeliosRunner thinks the frontline is a few km west of what Jerome’s map indicates, but it’s difficult to know (just from this report) where the frontline exactly is – There isn’t any settlement between Hrekivka and Novovodyane.

I really like your new style, more factual and each info backed with link to source footage. We can better know how the situation really looks like, even if it is not looking good for UA side.


Looks like the Siverske line is about to collapse.


Are you referring to rumors according to which Ukrainians left Bilohorivka (the one in Luhansk region)?


Not so much that but the Ruzzian northern advance from Soledar will surround Ukrainian troops in Spine area.


I like this new style with the

„Ukrainian General staff reports repelled attacks in the vicinity of“

And the sources given to any new advances

It gives people a better understanding of how things are I would imagine.
It’s also less pro-Ukraine and more neutral overall now, which might help with the recent wars in the comment section. I would hope so at least.


CIA Director Burns reportedly made peace proposal, including ceding 20% of Ukrainian territory to Russia, during visits to Ukraine and Russia in January which was rejected by both sides: Local News Outlet via Neue Zurcher Zeitung.

Some try to present this as if the US tried to sell off UA parts behind UA’s back, this is NOT what happened. Reporting this in bad faith is just trying to create a rift.

It has been reported that this was just testing of the waters “to check the readiness of Ukraine and Russia for negotiations”, i.e. not a formal proposition, but a diplomatic scouting in the context of the tank decision

internet person

Furthermore, Russia currently only occupies 16.65% of UA, including Crimea/”LPR”/”DPR”, which shows that the 20% was not a serious offer, but a mere test of the two parties’ positions and goals.

The fact that suddenly the whole internet is filled with a misrepresentation of this offer stinks like a Russian disinformation campaign.

Max Beckhaus

If true it would still have been a sign of great weekness on the part of the usa. Offering more than is actually occupied signals to moscow that russia is in a position of strength. Second Ukraine would need ironclad security promisses for any peace in that direction, which would mean nato membership. Thirdly, if russia really said no to that offer, it still suffers under immens delusion.

Max Beckhaus

But it would explaine the surge in western weapon supply lately. I hope peace for land is of the table now. That formula goes politically nowhere. Ukraine’s security can only be secured by nato membership or russian defeat. With the later being a political precondition for the first.

Max Beckhaus

Finally Ukraine’s security is of upmost importance for europes east and north. There is only one solution to that problem. Even biden, scholz and macron will understand that eventually, or even did finally.


Thank you for clarification.


It’s how it is when I copy paste – but if it’s a problem I will remove all bold text next time. No problems.
