"Destruction of Ukrainian armored vehicles in the Spirne area"


Russian telegram channels are having a very exciting day today. There are reports of a very substantial (by the standards of this war) advance of the Russians to the south of Bakhmut/Artyomovsk. It appears the Ukrainian line has been at least partially broken and the Russians can speak of a breakthrough. At least three villages, Ozeryanivka, Zelenopolye, and Andreevka were taken and possibly also the locally significant Kurdyumivka and Opitnoye. Against the backdrop of reports of horrendous Ukrainian losses in the Bakhmut sector, this is now looking like the stalemate in this region that prevailed for, goodness, by now four months, is now ending and Russia is going to win this battle soon.
Losing Bakhmut would be a major defeat for Ukraine. Of course, that hasn't happened yet, but with updated maps after today's advance we can see that the city is gradually coming under encirclement. Hopefully a couple of those visually appealing maps can be added on here soon to confirm the advances that I'm talking about.


Soledar - 28.11.2022
"The situation in the Soledar direction as of 14:00 /Moscow time/ November 28, 2022

▪️ Intense clashes continue in the vicinity of Bakhmut. Assault detachments of PMC "Wagner" and units of the National Militia of the DPR are pushing through the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the city and to the south of it.
▪️ The situation for the Armed Forces of Ukraine is critical - in the past two days the number of losses of the 30th Mechanized Brigade alone amounted to more than 150 people. The wounded are not being treated, a significant part of the dead are those who died from blood loss or sepsis.
▪️ During fierce battles, the settlements of Ozarianivka, Zelenopillya and Andriivka were liberated. The defense of the Ukrainian formations along the quarries collapsed.
▪️ Soldiers of the RF Armed Forces came close to Kurdyumivka and Klishchiivka.
▪️ A reserve platoon of the 53rd Mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine arrived at the strong point in Klishchiivka, to the south of Bakhmut, where an artillery battery of the 53rd brigade, consisting of three Akatsiya self-propelled guns, is located.
▪️ To reinforce the forces of the 53rd Mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, two groups of mobilized citizens, 50 people each, together with the 2nd detachment of special forces of the 71st jaeger brigade and the 65th separate battalion of the territorial defense of Ukraine were deployed in the Bakhmut sector.
▪️ The combined units of the 53rd brigade and 71st brigade attempted a counteroffensive in the area of Opytne. During the fighting, the assault groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine entrenched themselves in the building of the "Novaya Poshta" (new post) and advanced to the church in Opytne - soldiers of PMC "Wagner" repulsed the attack. Ukrainian forces withdrew from the settlement with losses, 20 soldiers were captured.
▪️ The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is planning another counterattack attempt - several units of the 57th Motorized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Aidar battalion arrived in Bakhmut from the Kherson direction.
▪️ An artillery unit of the 57th Motorized Brigade is stationed in Kramatorsk. In the coming days, together with the fighters of the 112th brigade of the territorial defense of Ukraine from the Kiev region will also arrive at the Bakhmut sector."
