"That's how ****ing defenders we have." In short.They surrendered the neighbouring village in the suburbs, rolled back. It's still a few kilometres from us to the front, but it looks like they decided to set up positions here. They started going door-to-door, saying that we were so important here, the glorious 93rd Brigade of the AFU, I think. 

On the second day, the AFU came to the neighbors' house and shot two men. Apparently, they got permission from their commanders, so they made an example of this mess. I knew them(those who were killed), they were good people, and that's it.... "In short, by evening, everyone living on the street had been kicked out."

❗️🇷🇺🇺🇦 Soledar direction
situation as of 11.00 December 16, 2022

Assault detachments of PMC “Wagner” continue fighting in the east of Bakhmut. Ukrainian formations hold fortified areas in urban areas.

🔻On the Bakhmut (Artemovsky) sector, units of the 3rd battalion of the 28th brigade and 46th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine tried to counterattack the Russian positions in Ozaryanovka.

The RF Armed Forces repulsed the attack, the forces of the 28th and 46th brigades retreated with losses. In one of the companies of the battalion of the 28th brigade, the number of killed and wounded exceeded 84 percent of the total force.

▪️Combined brigade artillery groups of the 28th and 53rd mechanized brigades are firing at the positions of the RF Armed Forces in Ozaryanovka and Kurdyumovka.

▪️In the third decade of December, the Ukrainian command intends to conduct a counteroffensive in the Bakhmut sector with the task of pushing the RF Armed Forces 10-15 km from the current front line.

To build up the grouping from the Kherson direction to the Udachnoye station, the 105th, 106th and 107th battalions of the 63rd SMB of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are being transferred, and at least the 98th battalion of the 60th SMB arrived in Bakhmut.

▪️Ammunition and fuel and lubricants have been delivered to Chasov Yar. In Konstantinovka, the mobilized are being distributed among units in Bakhmut, Soledar and Ivanovsky.

🔻In the Soledar sector, the Wagnerites completed the cleansing of Yakovlevka, providing a springboard for the attack on Soledar.

🔻In the Lisichansky sector, units of the 81st SAembr are conducting positional battles on the western outskirts of Belogorovka. Grenade launchers and ammunition were deployed to the area of operations.

🔻Over the past weeks, separate units 24, 60, 63, 65, Smbr, 46 SAembr, 71 EBR, 128 Sgshbr and 112 troop troop units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been deployed to the combat area.

A significant reinforcement of the garrison is necessary to keep Bakhmut, the loss of which could seriously damage the image of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Its defense and glorification following the example of Mariupol is their top priority.

Hohos apparently thought they could get over on Russia by waging war on Russia while Russians were occupied with questions of Ukie hearts and minds...

At some point however, guys like Putin and Surovikin will stop worrying about their hearts and minds and settle for their asses...

The UK Defense Minister said yesterday that providing Ukraine with advanced anti-aircraft systems was directly linked to Russia's decision to bomb civilian infrastructure which is a war crime in violation of multiple treaties.

If NATO and the West didn't have double standards, they wouldn't have any standards at all.

From the briefing ( by NATO Spokesperson Jamie Shea. Brussels, 25 May 1999:

Q: If you say that the [Yugoslav] army has a lot of generators, then why are you depriving the country of 70% not only of electricity, but also of water supply, because, according to you, [NATO] attacks only military facilities.

A: Unfortunately, command and control systems also depend on electricity. If Milosevic really wants his citizens to have water and electricity, all he has to do is accept NATO’s terms and we will stop this campaign. Until he does, we will continue to attack targets that supply his army with electricity. If it has consequences for the population, it is his [Milosevich’s] problem. Water and electricity are being used against the people of Serbia, we have shut them off for good or for a long time for the sake of the 1.6 million Kosovars who have been driven from their homes and whose lives have been significantly damaged. Not everyone will like this difference, but for me it is fundamental.”

I think this attack is Russia using its missiles before Ukraine gets its Patriots, knowing how useless they will be afterwards.

Good post, thanks. Not much response from the Biden war cheerleader crowd. Carry on war cheerleaders, your war, war, war agenda is leading to destruction.

You should have listened to Vlad two months ago when he stated “ we haven’t even started yet”, instead you keep drinking the fake western Media whiskey, make no mistake, Zelensky’s “ leadership “, refusal to negotiate has destroyed Ukraine, this war will end on Vlad’s terms, and there is nothing the inept, corrupted West can do about it.
