Successful Ukrainian counter-attack near Vuhledar. Russians lost dacha area and retreated to Mykilske.


apparently RU forces by @Deepstate report broke through Yahidne/Berkhivka line.
‘Katsaps managed to break through the defense south of Paraskoviivka, they are trying to drive a wedge between Yagidny and Berkhivka. They are also trying to advance to Dubovo-Vasylivka. In the city itself, most attacks are repelled, but not all.’ (my very shitty translation)[email protected]://

They are running English version of the channel called DeepStateEN. No need to translate then 😉


silly me x.x Fpr my defense I can only tell that I am as old as Ethernet definition, so have mercy 😀


“The enemy advanced closer to Zaliznianske settlement east of Blahodatne”
am i dumb or is it west of Blahodatne

JJ Gonzo

Orlyanka and Hryanykivka are in rashists hands, please correct that on your map, to reflect how the situation really looks like.

JJ Gonzo

Orlyanka was never liberated by UA so how I can send you a proof that it was retaken by RU? It would be constantly shelled and attacked (as nearby settlements) if in UA hands.


If the Russian offensive fails or fails to make progress, Gerasimov will be the next to be kicked out by Putin. Putin believes he can change commanders like his underpants, at some point it may stop stinking.

Max Beckhaus

Personally I have the feeling that gerasimov and shoigu are to important as scapegoats for the whole thing and part of an „inner circle“ of Putin loyals that won’t be dropped easily. Being loyal is the most important trade for a scared dictator like Putin, and he is obviously super scared (table…). Stalin would have probably killed them after 3 months of this failure…


Lapin still a useful punching bag.


Think about how many generals Lincoln went through before settling on Ulysses Grant


Think about how many generals Hitler fired when they failed to achieve the unrealistic goals he was imposing to them. He did it until the end.


Pro-Russia opinion: Russia launched all those attacks in the past month to find a weak spot to exploit in the coming offensive and found that weak spot in Bakhmut, if it falls they will try to break through there

Pro-Ukraine opinion: Russia will probably be unable to capitalize on the fall of Bakhmut, after Bakhmut falls the battle will just move north to Slovyansk and Kramatorsk and that’s it


Of course my second opinion builds on the belief Ukraine is evacuating Bakhmut, if their brigades there get encircled their sector will probably be breeched and Russia would need to be incredibly incompetent, more than already shown, to fail to capitalize on that.


in statements made two days ago by the Ukrainian Foreign Minister
“bakhmut will stand at all costs”
“if bakhmut falls another city will become a new Bakhmut”


I start to think that may be bakmut will not fall.

Intensity of russian attacks decrease. And Ukrain counter attacks in south of bakmut.

Russian waste lots of power on many objectiv.

Max Beckhaus

looks like there will be one more cold snap and then it is off to mud season again. That will make the Russian flanking moves very difficult, and the whole offensive will possibly be just a giant waist of resources without anything to show for.


if the mud arrives the front will become largely an artillery duel and Russia has eight/ten times more artillery than Ukraine, apart from Ukraine it has the added problem that it receives less artillery ammunition than it could expend

Pikująca Szozda

They’ve been throwing everything they have at Bakhmut for several months, and they still don’t control it. This is the opposite of a weak spot.


How could it be a WEAK spot ? if they are still unable to take it since 8 months, unable to encircle it for once ? When sacrificing thousands of men and ammunition for no gains at all …. We speak about a small town of 70000 inhabitants before the war…. What will it be when RuSSians will fight for Sloviansk or Kramatorsk much more fortified cities ?


It is kept alive by just one road connecting it to Chasiv Yar, if Russians manage to put it under artillery fire or they manage to take Chasiv Yar then it’s game over, it doesn’t matter how well Ukraine is fighting there.

And if Bakhmut falls without evacuation then 9 brigades and 2 battalions will find themselves in a very horrible scenario and their sector will be left lightly defended.


I think in that war it’s very unlikely to get encircled. Literally zero of which happened in this war (except Mariupol and Energodar, who were ordered to stay in the cities). You can see similar situations with Zolote & Sievierodonetsk Ukrainian retreats, and Izium & Lyman. Of course, hard equipment can be left.


Wrong, not just one road, one road which can be used by tanks and heavy vehicles… but you forget dozens of small roads in the fields north Bakhmut which are constantly used by jeeps,SUV and buggies for supplies… these roads will be very difficult to destroy through artillery barrage or mines …. so Bakhmut will always be supplied however if the ruSSians encirclement is completed then it is do
