according to live map Ukraine and some twitter Post bridges at bachmuth are being blown up. Seems like UA is finally retreating


thank you for your work.

There is something odd on your NATO tactical symbols.
You wrote number of the unit on the right, but it should be on left side of the sign. (right side is for superordinate unit/element)

On “Bakhmut Front” map you correctly use symbol for 24. Assult Batalion of 53. brigade or 57. batalion of 80. brigade, but all tactical symbols are confusing/incorect.


Since Ukrainian brigades are the superordinate units (there are no division, corps nor army units in the Ukrainan military), shouldn’t their identification numbers be on the right (as Jerome writes them) ?


No, on left side is number of the unit.
If it does not have superordinate, no number on right …


OK thank you for the explanation.


9 months ago (July 3rd), it was day 130 – the fall of Lysychansk. Russians were 15 km east of Bakhmut. Jerome wasn’t even considering Bakhmut (maybe because it was expected to fall soon) when he wrote: “The fate of Donbas is now in the hands of the defenders of two iconic cities – Slovyansk and Kramatorsk.” 9 months later, Bakmut still holds (probably not much longer). That’s an achievement!


Correction: it was 8 months, not 9. My bad.


that only shows us, that Jerome was wrong. Why is that an achievement?


A few weeks ago, some random guys had decided to use the same name as me. Maybe to confuse the readers. I registered to avoid this confusion.

Anyway, the comment “that only shows us” and the answer to WaterlooBridge are not mine.


Because for 8 months we hear EVERY day taht Bakhmut will fall tomorrow and it is still ne the case for a poorly ( useless ) strategical city nor logisitical… so it means that Russian army or Wagner are to weak to take such small city in time.There are only at least 12 UKR deployed in this area it means and most of them Territoral Def.So it is just to concentrate russian forces before HIMARS… Read more »


Take the time to savor your victory in Bakhmut, orcs, because Kramatorsk is three times as large, and twice as easy to defend. It took you more than a year to take Bakhmut, and it will only get worse for you from here on.

you need weapons, ammunition and soldiers to defend Kramatorsk, what, if all that was wasted in Bakhmut?


Every single military factory in NATO (80% of the world economy) is working full time for the sole purpose of arming Ukraine. Countless volunteers are being trained throughout Europe ready to fight the Russian invaders. Sorry vatnik, but attrition and winter will not save you this time.


There are only two problems we are facing right now: Russia has massive influence in the west (infiltrating the Republican party in the US and portraying itself as pro-peace in Germany); you’d be surprised how many buy this propaganda. And secondly, China. If they ship weapons or intervene, we have a huge problem. Also attrition is in Russia’s advantage, unless we sabotage their industry


-from the perspective of Ukraine’s allies. Of course we should ship more weapons and massively increase military production. The people need to realise that freedom and democracy can be lost to the Russia-China axis if we aren’t strong


Russia-China-Iran-North Korea axis.


Yawn. If that’s the new Axis then World War 3 will be quite easy to win indeed.


Even if NATO military factories were at 100% that still would not be enough. Eg. The US at full capacity can produce 14,000 155mm howitzer shells/ month. Ukraine goes through 4,000-7,000 artillery rounds/day. Russia has been firing around 20,000 rounds/day and even as much as 60,000 rounds/ day. The amount of shells the US produces in 6 months is equivalent to what Russia fires in 3-4 days!


For now. Never forget that while the Russian economy is currently in full war mode, the USA is still in a consumerist civilian economy not even geared towards fighting a war. Even so, with only 5% of our annual military budget, we were able to destroy 50% of the Russian military potential and dragged a 3 day war to more than a year. Be careful what you wish for, you do not want to piss… Read more »


The US economy won’t come close to wartime production, so that point is moot.


Wanna bet?


Yes. I live in the United States, I’d know if we were in a wartime economy.


NATO isn’t 80% of the world economy what drugs are you on? Hell the USA is currently the second largest economy after China, it only ranks higher if you adjust all the prices to US purchasing power (nominal) but that’s stupid.


The Chinese economy is only so thanks to OUR 20 trillion USD in investments and countless technology transfers. While the Russians are able to insulate themselves from our network the Chinese are so reliant on our economic systems that the moment we go hard on China their entire nation will be sent back to the 19th century.


Most NATO counties spend 1% of their total GDP on defense and can’t even equip their own armies. Good luck relying on anyone besides the United States.


That percentage has been increasing rapidly ever since the beginning of the war last year. Maybe check what that number is now for Germany, France, UK and Spain.
