🇷🇺🇺🇦 Possible scenarios for next period in this area. Ukr hold 3 villages just S of Izum bridgehead (W of the forest) & the town of Maikai which they have to hold if they want to prevent the Rus approaching the N outskirts of Slavyansk.
🇷🇺🇺🇦 Wider North #Slavyansk area . Sidorovo & Bogorodichno are claimed by Rus sources incl DPR command, but the surrounding area is still being cleared 3rd map shows names of settlements in this area & current control https://t.co/JgljdOwbWV
🇷🇺🇺🇦 #Severodonetsk Latest reports say the Ukr hold only the Azot plant & Borivskoe (west of SD). The 2 bridges from SD to Lisichansk are reportedly destroyed & the 3rd one to the SW is damaged but can be crossed by light vehicles There's about 600 Ukr left in Industrial zone
◾‘They [#Ukrainian military] assembles people in lines. Then, the tank fires 3 or 4 times while climbing the mound. ◾That was it’. A resident of #Donbass told about the killing of civilians by the Ukrainian military and what he saw.
Captured weapons abandoned by the retreating Ukrainian nationalists - machine guns, Javelin anti-tank systems, NLAW. Video: Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation
RF is cleaning up the area along the river northeast of Kharkiv (no idea why Novyi Burluk is now marked as RF - I did not know it changed hands recently - could also be a map correction or something)
How I think the advance will continue after Severodonetsk is cleared: • Cleanup in Toshkovka, entering from the southeast • Past Vrubovka, entering from the southwest • Cutting the Bakhmut-Lisichansk highway, entering from the west • Encirclement of Zolotoye
‼️The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine confirmed the loss of control over the center of Severodonetsk. Department Spokesman Alexander Motuzyanik also added that the forces of the Russian Federation and LPR have a serious advantage in artillery.‼️
1/3 ◾The Investigative Committee of the #Russian Federation established the identity of two more commanders of the Armed Forces of #Ukraine who participated in the killings of the civilian population of #Donbass. Three criminal cases have been opened.
◾A normal week in Liberated #Mariupol. ◾Russia zappers continue to demine the city, Maryana Naumova visited the town and watched the work been carried on. ◾Locals enjoyed the warm weather at the beach, and in #RussiaDay people unfurled a huge #Russian flag to celebrate.
A woman from #Donetsk recalls how everything started in 2014 and #Donbass people called on #Ukrainians to stop bombing them, stop the war. Western Ukrainians told them it was not a war but an Anti-terrorist Operation, that there was no civilians left in Donbass only terrorists.
