The U.S. wanted Russia to be aggressive towards Poland so that they could escalate the war to fulfill their narratives while still not confronting Russia directly.
This has really been pathetic.
This was last night's Shitmupdate. Kinda stagnant on the whole frontline save for advances on Izyum and advances in Zaporozhia oblast, and pushing Ukrainians back from several areas around Horlivka

BREAKING: Russian military has been able to move forward in advance on Ukraine's capital of Kyiv.
Russia has forces near Hostomel Airport that have advanced to 3 miles from Kyiv city limits. Another northeast advance is 25 miles east of Kyiv.https://twitter.com/JackDetsch/status/1502015335649755139?t=Ktf0At0AGkIkf_yeKezDqw&s=19

The Most american Russian to have ever lived.
Russians get kicked back in a few places in Mykolaiv Oblast but advance along the west bank of the Dniepr river, as well as tightening the siege of Mariupol even further and make some minor advances near Kyiv and in Luhansk Oblast.
Damn, Mariupol still holding out? That's Crazy. azov must not want to be tried for war crimes against the Russian People.
>>338537>must not want to be tried
Tried? You mean executed at best, burn alive at worst.
Based, Hope its recorded
I am ok Doc.
Echocardiography has shown nothing unusual - especially around the pericardium. Wanted to go to the gym yesterday but my dear sister infected me with good ol' "normal" cold, she even tested herself to make sure it's not that coof shit again. So yeah, next week and I should be good to go (had literally sore throat for a day and a bit of sneezing, will just sip some tea with honey and ginger).
Oh and to update. Supposedly to some apothecary test I do have a coof (again). But it's waaay milder than the last one. Practically as the actual cold - sore throat for few days and need to spit some pulmonary secretion (once I woke up I spilled a bit of blood but my saturation is proper - 97.. Will test myself again in a few weeks after I recover as I did previously.
And will beat up my sister for bringing in germs to the household.
Russians advance on Makariv to the west of Kyiv and capture Rubizhne to the north of Sieverodonetsk in Luhansk, and capture Izium and its surroundings in Kharkiv, and capture the airport near Mariupol.
ok good to know
hope you make a good recovery
btw how is the public opinion about the fact that your country really wants to get involved in this war despite having a direct border with russia?
is the border closed? do the news report of a build up of both sides military at the russian border?
Well since I live approx 150 miles from Kaliningrad Oblast... nothing on my end. Media covers more how NATO sends in equipment for hohols. And normies are more occupied with giving their last belongings to refugees.
Russians advance into Mariupol itself, and Ukrainians counterattack in Mykolaiv
I notice the battle map on Wikipedia shows Russian forces attacking Fastiv, is there a reason this isn't present on yours?
ok thanks for the info
i guess the map update was too fast even for the russians
Syrian General Suheil al Hasan, leader of the 25th special Division, is touring his units-Tiger forces on the Idlib fronts, where they are conducting military exercises. https://t.co/XWtlexx6YBhttps://twitter.com/spriter99880/status/1505190594376785921?t=jgJWj_PrJ7UCVIaoExM12A&s=19
The Kinzhal seems to be a modified version of the Iskander-M 9M723 quasi-ballistic missile. Its use is notable, but, imo, not that significant. It has the range to hit targets in western Ukraine, and Russia is likely running low on cruise missiles for those targets.https://twitter.com/RALee85/status/1505203808506462216?t=3YnGi_C44FlXxrXFLiYyVw&s=19
It looks like Russia used three advanced weapons systems today, as a show of force & to test battlefield capabilities. 1) The hypersonic Kh-47M2 Kinzhal missile in Western Ukraine 2) the K-300P Bastion-P missile system in Odessa oblast 3) the Tornado-G MLRS system in Kiev oblast.https://twitter.com/RWApodcast/status/1505184140915888128?t=HG_ic7HhPxghTKpFm4m4Ug&s=19
Ukrainians push back the Russians in Izium and several places in Donbass, but the Russians push forward in Mykolaiv and isolated settlements in Donbass, as well as minor gains to the west of Kyiv.
It's Kyiv until the Russians change it back to Kiev
Actually always has been KIEV and always will be.
Southern front stalls completely apart from squeezing the Mariupol pocket. Donbass sees minor gains in Donetsk area, and Northern front sees the most changes with Ukrops pushing the Russians back near Kyiv while the Russians advance in Chernihiv oblast.
One month of the war
- Russians seize Kherson and reopen the Crimea canal
- Fail to seize Kharkiv, Sumy, Chernihiv
- Seize most of Luhansk oblast
- besiege Mariupol and draw closer to taking it
- seize the entire Azov Sea coastline minus Mariupol with a large buffer zone (the land route to Crimea)
- push to the outskirts of Mykolaiv but pushed back
- frontlines have largely stagnated since then due to major fuel and supply issues
The Russians certainly have performed disappointingly below expectations and made major blunders you would see out of the Middle East and Africa, but so have the Ukrainians as the Ukrainians failed to obliterate the 40km long supply convoy near Kyiv (they only harassed it) and several Russian salients weren't cut off despite the overwhelming chances to do so (looking at you Chernihiv-Kyiv salient).
This is just the start of a major slogfest despite progress made in diplomacy between Ukraine and Russia, according to a NATO country.
However, the real news has been in the financial world. Russia and China have introduced the Eastern version of SWIFT - the Mir system, and they've already got India, Iran, and Venezuela lined up to join on it. https://twitter.com/zerohedge/status/1506961393169448965https://t.me/asbmil/889https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mir_(payment_system)
Saudi Arabia is considering trading oil for Yuans, and Russians have stated that unfriendly countries (All NATO/EU countries + Australia, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan) will have to trade for Russian gas in Rubles instead of Dollars. India and Russia have agreed to trade oil in Rupees at a discount.https://english.alarabiya.net/News/world/2022/03/23/Russia-will-only-accept-rubles-for-gas-deliveries-to-Europe-Putin-https://t.me/vestifmplus/29415https://twitter.com/disclosetv/status/1503728487840063491 https://twitter.com/rongxiang/status/1503810610278117394https://theexchange.africa/countries/shift-petrodollar-imminent-india-ditch-us-dollar/
The only countries that have levied sanctions against Russia are North American and European countries. The rest of the world has not made such moves against Russia.
I honestly think the Ukraine invasion was just a catalyst for global dedollarization as the world MUST buy dollars for oil in order to maintain the dollar as the world reserve currency. With the two most populous countries poised to trade oil for non-dollar currencies and with Russia demanding Rubles for oil and gas trades with hostile countries or the supply gets cut, and with Russia now effectively pegging the Ruble to gold, this could be huge news for the dollar. They're only doing it for three months (into June), but this could be a massive catalyst due to them demanding rubles for oil and gas and with the Ruble now being backed by gold, other countries will have to either convert to rubles or buy gold to trade oil and gas with Russia (if they make this move permanent) which in turn means Russian oil is now de-facto backed by gold. This could play out into a new Bretton Woods system.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbNoddwc1Lo
The Ukraine war might be going not so well for Russia, but Russia could end up placing the United States into a checkmate position in the end. Only time will tell what happens now.
>>339610>The only countries that have levied sanctions against Russia are North American and European countries.
and Japan, Australia, New Zealand.*
>>339610>Saudi Arabia is considering trading oil for Yuans, and Russians have stated that unfriendly countries (All NATO/EU countries + Australia, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan) will have to trade for Russian gas in Rubles instead of Dollars.

Didn't India do the same with Iran when Iran got sanctioned by the US? I believe Iran is the second biggest producer for India's oil
Yes and nohttps://www.timesnownews.com/business-economy/economy/after-russia-iran-offers-oil-to-india-proposes-revival-of-rupee-rial-barter-article-90324533
They had that system BEFORE the sanctions and then the system got cut down considerably during the Trump presidency. Now Iran is seeking to bring back this barter in force.
And Taiwan. >>339609
Any guesses for which major city goes next?
At this rate, none will. Hohols are even entering Kherson last I checked.
From what I hear, Mariupol has essentially fallen.
>>339695>Kherson last I checked.
If I remember correctly that was claimed by the Americans and denied by the Ukrainians. I don't know who was responsible for that blunder.
Ukraine Shitmupdate - Russians advance on Izyum again and make some advances in Kharkiv and Luhansk Oblasts, but Ukrainians counterattack near Sumy with significant gains pushing towards the Russian border and retake Irpin near Kyiv.
In Chernihiv, the Russians abandon Slavutych after protests by unarmed locals.
Ukrainian advance in eastern Mykolaiv and western Kherson.
Russians withdraw from Kyiv region, leading to Ukrainian forces taking control of the entire oblast.
Russians seize Izyum in rural Kharkiv. Beyond this, only minor gains on either side.
Wow, so they weren't bullshitting about a tactical withdrawal in the north. So should we actually expect a larger offensive in the east and south like they've been saying too? Reckon they'll ease of Chernihiv too?
Russians continue withdrawal from the north, withdrawing from massive areas around Chernihiv and will likely abandon everything in Sumy and Kharkhiv oblasts in the coming days
Only minor Russian gains as they contest Oleksandrivka to the south of Kryvyi Rih
An offensive yes, but I have severe doubts about its success since while the Russians will have more manpower freed up from Kyiv, so will the Ukrainians and frankly, the Ukrainians are much more motivated and have much higher morale than the Russians
I don't see Russia coming out of this with much of a win. But more attention should be paid to the economic WWIII that's being waged in the financial world.
Y'all at the top, you reckon I should say fuck it and make a thread for the economic WWIII that's underway? Cause that's where the real fight is being waged at this point and goes way beyond Ukraine.
I think that's a great idea.
Ukrainians clear out Sumy and Chernihiv oblasts after Russians withdraw.
We'll see, the Russians are gearing up for another offensive but I'm not optimistic about its success.
ROUND FIVE OF ELECTIONS AHAHHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHHHAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHHHAHHAHAHHHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHHAHAHHAH
This will be the final push before they take the entirety of the jewcraine.
How can Russia speedrun victory?
Saw a channel that said Russia can only win if they slow down and use their power advantage to crush the enemy slowly wherever they can be found. If it's that easy why haven't they been doing that already?
They literally cannot speedrun victory, that window has long since passed. This is gonna be a long and drawn-out war unless diplomacy prevails. They failed to take Kharkiv, Sumy, Chernihiv, and Kyiv after protracted battles and they only managed to take Kherson because it was during the shock and awe blitz phase and even then it was still a hard fight. The only way they're gonna save face is if they take Donbass in its entirety and claim victory by saying they achieved their war goal.>>340811>take the entirety of
They couldn't even take Kharkhiv on day 1 despite it being right there across the border and having the element of surprise and momentum. They STILL can't take Kharkiv. And they got kicked out of Kyiv with no signs of returning in the near future after cutting their losses and withdrawing after a huge clusterfuck of bad decisions before and during the battle.
Ping pong in the area of eastern Mykolaiv/northern Kherson
Russians make small advances to the south of Izyum and cross the river.
>>340909>They failed to take Kharkiv, Sumy, Chernihiv, and Kyiv
That was never there objectives. they are going to push through the Donbass now that the jewkrainians are facing attrition around kiev and kharkov.
Why isn't Russia crushing Ukraine? Russia is bigger, has more men, and has more equipment, right?
Oh yes they were, the Russians thought Ukraine would fold in a month at the most and prepared as such and now that they're proven horribly wrong it's the long haul. History is replete with such examples, including modern history.>WWI will be over by Christmas t. Kaiser>We will force China to surrender in quick order t. a Japanese general>We will crush the Americans at Pearl Harbor t. another Japanese general
Isoroku Yamamoto was the most realistic of them and his prediction came true.
And I'm pretty sure the US generals that went into Iraq and Afghanistan didn't expect a generational fight either. Nor did the US brass going into Vietnam expect the NVA and Vietcong to ultimately prevail.
No military has ever been above making strategic blunders, and the Russian military is no exception.>>340915
I mean, so did the US in Afghanistan....
Size ain't everything. Leadership and morale make huge differences and on the ground the Ukrainians have better military leadership and better morale as well.
>>340915>Why isn't Russia crushing Ukraine?
I may speculate a few reasons combined.
1- War cost money
2- An occupation army cost a lot in the medium and long run
3- The stated plan is to crush the Ukrainian army and regime change. The first it has been much accomplished, the second it is a matter of time.
4- By pushing Ukraine in disarray, NATO cannot place missiles pointing at Russia on a disputed territory.
5- Putin is a WEF stooge and no matter the appearances, every step already taken is getting the Great Reset closer. Be Russia or the West teams, they all respond to the same (((command))).
They do have the manpower and technological advantage, but they can’t make all of their forces available for an invasion of Ukraine. Doing so would leave open the possibility of Western forces using Japan as a base for invading Vladivostok.
I don't think NATO will ever try to push inside Russia, this isn't WWII or something
But it is still a reason why Russia can’t use all of its forces. It could also leave Japan the possibility of claiming some islands it lost in WWII or for Japan itself to stage the invasion. A lack of troop presence in the Russian Far East could also open the floodgates for North Korean defectors to cross the Tumen River en masse and escape unhindered.
Russians make an advance in southern Donetsk Oblast.

Problem: Israel has been touted for decades as THE Jewish homeland, how do they plan to forcibly resettle all the Israelis to Ukraine?
Even more so, how do they plan the narrative for such a move? It's not like Israel is under threat of imminent invasion, especially since they now have nukes.
Another problem: What do with all of Israel's WMDs? Move them over to Ukraine? Moscow absolutely won't allow a nuclear-armed state right on its southwestern border, especially a hostile one due to how little reaction time it would allow them in the event of a hostile first strike.
Me thinks he was referring to how Ukraine will be more like an ethnostate like Israel is rather than a multiculti nation like European nations are.
Edit: With history going back millennia with Israel as THE Jewish homeland (I won't go into the other theories for the sake of argument) while Ukraine has no such history beyond a vague region known as Khazaria which only existed for a relatively short while and the heartland was in southern Russia.
How would they justify that?
It's just too much of a stretch for me to believe, especially when it rests on shaky ground.
Just wanted to say that you are truly a gem. keep up the good work, always keep this great insight as well.

Good to know.
It's always been about the money. Crimea is a money dump without the canal and the gas fields in Ukraine threaten Russian energy hegemony in the region. There is probably other smaller goals in mind, but those are the two major ones that caused the war.

Howdy people, glad to see some of you still posting here.
I've been keeping up with the Sieverdonetsk salient and trying to foresee what will happen.
By the looks of it the eponymous city is basically already lost but the ukrops might hold on to the Azot industrial zone to the west of the city in a maneuver akin to the Azovstal siege.
The bridges to the city are all blown up and it won't be long before the Russians envelop the factory zone or Ukrops retreat.
What happens after the Russians control the city? So far, the Siverskyi Donets river has been an excellent defensive barrier and so a river crossing between Lyman and Lysychansk is highly unlikely to happen. The Russians are instead going ahead with approaching Slavyansk from the north and Bakhmut from the south (and joining up with east), threatening to decapitate the salient from the roots. No doubt about it, these two cities will be hard nuts to crack but holding the cities AND the salient will probably be too tall of an order for the hohols, especially if the Russians increase the pressure around Popasna and south of Lysychansk.
I think the salient will fall before long and without having the Siverskyi Donets river as a crutch, Ukraine will lose all of Donetsk oblast before any kind of serious peace initiative from Russia will be held (Russian officials already call anything in Donetsk Oblast as property of DPR mind you).
The Russians reportedly captured Dolyna/Krasnopillia and Bohorodychne was confirmed fully secured.
Now they'll have to clear a big ass forest to reach the northern outskirts of Slavyansk. Though they'll also want to reach the river valley running west out of Slavyansk before assaulting the city, will probably be weeks before that happens.
Vrubivka was captured north of Popasna and the road to Vuhlehirska thermal power plant (blue circle) was reportedly cut (plus captured village west of the plant).
The power plant front is not fully encircled yet as the Ukies can make their way across the fields, we'll find out soon if they evacuated.
The Russians also reached the wrecked railroad bridge south of Rubizhne (west of Azot industrial zone):
Can we get some old fashioned shit maps for the situation in Donetsk and Luhansk? It's had to find good maps for the day to day situation>>346125
I do very much appreciate these.
Russians advance towards a small village in the area of Lyman, and Ukrainians counterattack in the area of Hirske in Luhansk, and make a significant counterattack in northwestern Kherson oblast.
But in the larger scale, over two weeks since the last shitmupdate and hardly anything's changed.

El Classico is happening in Syria, weeks ago the t*rks announced that an offensive into northern Syria against the k*rds would happen but instead another round of infighting between TFSA factions is occurring in the Euphrates Shield region.
Today it has been reported that HTS together with Ahrar al Sham entered Afrin from the Idlib region, after a couple of hours (supposedly clashes occured at the "border" between the regions) they reportedly entered Jinderes (second largest town in the Operation Olive Branch Afrin area) without a fight.https://twitter.com/Krummapper/status/1538290166246285312http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.389506&lon=36.716824&z=13&show=/10141062/Jinderes>Commander in Ahrar al-Sham Abu al-Sibbi threatens to expel the "Erdogan factions" from northern Aleppo to Turkey, calling them mercenaries and drug addictshttps://twitter.com/Bosni_94/status/1538280278388514819
The t*rkish Syria strategy continues to confound me.
The "offensive" into Afrin was supposedly cancelled and all gains reversed after t*rkish mediations.
Before the mediations HTS/AS reportedly entered Turanda, a suburb of Afrin city.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=36.493147&lon=36.876812&z=14&show=/26140357/Turanda

With this advance the last paved road leading into the Hirske/Zolote bulge is cut and the Russians will be able to take over the defensive trenches at the crossroads (they are built to defend from attacks coming from the south lel).
There are still dirt roads leading out so the encirclement is not complete, will the ukrops retreat?
If Hirske and Zolote falls, the battles will reach the southern outskirts of Lysychansk.
There's many factory areas which im sure the kike oligarch owners wouldn't mind making into battlefields so they can rake in insurance gibs from the EU.
The main supply road to Lysychansk is cut (the ukrops use it as a defensive barrier as seen in link related):https://twitter.com/mdfzeh/status/1537753794049675264
I have a hunch the Russians are very keen on taking Berestove and Mykolaivka in order to assault the Lysychansk Oil Refinery as it would encircle Lysychansk, they might need to wait for their manpower and equipment surrounding Hirske/Zolote to get freed up before trying it though.
Ps: Disregard the "last open supply road", there would still be a smaller paved road running along the Siverskyi Donets river into Lysychansk around 7 kilomemes from the oil refinery but i'm sure the Russian drone operators will make life on that road hell until the ground forces cut it aswell.

btw apparently the chadliban meme has made it's way into chinese imageboards and a particular line caught up their attention
Looks like the Hirske-Zolote bulge is toast, the Russians have reportedly captured Myrna Dolyna, Pidlisne and Loskutivka.
Meanwhile they entered Hirske as ukrops surrender themselves in Zolote.
Supposedly 2-3k ukrops in this area, a big defeat for Kiev.
I haven't seen any proof of the supposed surrender in Zolote, "entered Hirske" should've been taken with a grain of salt and Loskutivka was reported as cleared today.
Some sources say the ukrops have been retreating through the gap between Vrubivka and Ray-Oleksandrivka (probably on foot through the forested dry creek).

Blyaaa, nice, I've been missing out since nobody's allowed to translate and upload new ANNA stuff to youtube since they were banned then.
Not sure but I think ANNA is on Telegram.
Given that Telegram ask to dox yourself with a phone, it is a no-no for me.
Some sources said Vovchoiarivka was entered today but i don't believe it, doesn't make much sense to enter the valley yet. Besides, the high ground between the village and Loskutivka are way more important and haven't been mentioned.
It's surprising they haven't made any progress west towards the road but my guess is Hirske/Zolote will be stormed before that (very soon™).
Their website wasn't very google translate friendly last i checked but now it seems to be working better.https://anna-news.info

Safe to say the ukrops won't fight very hard for anything that isn't the "Zolote-1" part of Zolote.
>>346526>It's surprising they haven't made any progress west towards the road but my guess is Hirske/Zolote will be stormed before that (very soon™)
LPR reporting (Text 1) that they've gained fire control over the road and Ukr MoD (Text 2 ) says the Russians are trying to capture Berestove.http://wikimapia.org/#lang=en&lat=48.758113&lon=38.257270&z=14&show=/17955830/Berestove
Furthermore, Ukr MoD claims the Russians are attacking in Vovchoiarivka direction and there's no confirmation from pro-Russian side that they've entered the village.
Izvestia (Russian News) correspondent claimed around noon that Karbonit (Zolote-1) was under Russian control...

They're on the ground in Zolote so there's no reason to disregard their report.https://twitter.com/200_zoka/status/1539972650914631681
Now how many ukrops are there really in the kotel? 2000 is probably a vast overestimation, maybe they've all left already.
ANNA News:>The 6th Cossack regiment together with the special regiment "Akhmat 1" liberated small Kamyshevakha.>Cossacks of the 6th regiment of the NM LPR liberated the settlements of Zolote-1, Zolote-2, Zolote-3, Zolote-4, Persiyanovka (Malaya Nikolaevka)>A sweep is underway in the settlement. Gorskoye.https://twitter.com/200_zoka/status/1539984912366948352
Small Kamyshevakha = east Kamyshevakha, Zolote-2 is self explanatory and means everything south of Hirske (or Gorskoye as it's named in Russian) is under Russian control.
Persiyanovka is the small neighborhood of Novoivanivka closest to Vrubivka.
Picture proof that they entered Hirske today (the northern suburb called Ivanivka to be precise).
Ukrop media claims the towns were already evacuated and I'm inclined to believe them, we'll see soon enough.

Turns out the ukrop leadership can make tactical retreats from unsustainable situations to save manpower from certain death, impressive!
I wonder how much more "fortified" Lysychansk is and what benefit getting encircled there would be though... to be honest i suspect they might try a fighting retreat to the Bakhmut and Slavyansk defensive line since encirclement won't be hard after the Bakhmut-Lysychansk road and Oil Refinery is cracked.

Doomposting from JihadiJulian followed by pro-Ukrop users screeching hard in replies, what a time to be alive.
>>346643>i suspect they might try a fighting retreat to the Bakhmut and Slavyansk defensive line
Sloviansk-Kramatorsk-Druzhkivka-Kostiantynivka-Toretsk defensive line to be precise.
The cities are more or less a continuous stream of urban environment in a river valley with extremely limited wiggle room to exploit gaps without engaging in heavy urban combat, not to mention the Kazennyi Torets River which runs through them will be damn near impossible to pass going from east to west due to it being too wide for solid bridges laid by armoured bridgelayer and both sides being urbanized (good luck building a pontoon bridge when AT teams hide in every house on the opposite side of the river).
The ukrops will bank on the Russians not being able to cut through any of the cities to make some sort of encirclement maneuver.
So what should the Putinoids do to overcome this giant shit wall?
They've recently been approaching Slavyansk from the north of course and made some gains in northern Donetsk city/western Horlivka city front (albeit something like a month ago). Considering how long it has taken to seize Severodonetsk and nearly encircle Lysychansk, imagine how long and how much manpower it would take to cut the numerous ukrop supply lines running from Dnipropetrovsk into the cities...
Will be incredibly hard without turning the "conflict" into a real war and mobilizing conscripts (at the moment the Russians who rely on paid professionals and militiamen are outnumbered). Positioning themselves with artillery on the elevated eastern outskirts and brute forcing their way through the cities on both sides of the river from north (Slavyansk) and south (Toretsk) might be the way to go.
The jew oligarchs in control of Ukraine will fight to the last hohol but as demonstrated by the mutinies on Lysychansk front, there might be a point when trying to hold on to the Russian territories just isn't worth it for the commoners and high ranking military personnel.
Regarding Slavyansk, it should be possible to encircle it from the north (currently in progress) east (after Lysychansk) and west (so far no real push to reach the river valley running west out of Slavyansk, but the river is not as imposing as Kazennyi Torets or Siverskyi Donets). Leaving only the H-20 highway to Kramatorsk, this can be cut by taking the Cherevkivka suburb (which is the only part of Slavyansk on the eastern side of Kazennyi Torets).
Not a great comparison, but check out how the ukrops took Slavyansk back in 2014.
The Cherevkivka suburb is all 1-2 story homes by the way.
>The forces of the LPR and Russia entered Lisichansk, the fighting is going on inside the city, media reports citing the NM LPRhttps://twitter.com/200_zoka/status/1540662151551107072>Video: 'The Russians are our friends': The civilians refusing to evacuate Ukraine's Lysychanskhttps://twitter.com/trader__mackie/status/1540336268059414529
So many reports coming from Lysychansk today... the Russians claim complete control (i.e not just fire control) of the Bakhmut-Lysychansk road, the Gelatine factory, Matroska (settlement and mine). Weirdly enough, earlier in the morning they claimed to control the rubber factory and glass factory.
The Ukrainians confirm everything east of the river is under Russian control after the announced retreat from Severodonetsk and they also confirm fighting is taking place in Lysychansk city.
For now i'll disregard the rubber/glass factory, but the reports of the Gelatine factory and Matroska seems legit. I didn't expect them to assault the city before taking the oil refinery but entering the city along the railroad tracks from Loskutivka makes sense i guess.
The situation is too wild to get the full picture at the moment so i'll try to avoid posting unverified stuff.
thanks i already have these two with south, but the quality is terrible
