My country has been invaded by Russia. In this video I will tell you what happened on the six-hundred-fifty-first day of the war. Day 651: Dec 06 Today, there are a lot of updates from the Avdiivka direction. Here, the most intense clashes continue taking place on the northern flank. After Ukrainians successfully pushed Russians back to the railways, Russian forces started preparing a new plan of attack. Today, Ukrainian fighters reported that Russians changed their tactic and started using a lot of tanks and armored fighting vehicles. And this is an important change from what we saw at least over the last month. As you remember, Russian forces stopped using heavy equipment in the northern part of the region because the roads are exposed to Ukrainian fire from all sides and because of the minefields. That is why Russian soldiers had to use their feet to travel to the contact line. However, after the previous Russian massive infantry attack failed due to cluster munitions and machine guns, the Russian commanders decided to support their infantry with armor. Before launching the main attack, Russian forces conducted a reconnaissance-in-force operation with one tank. The goal here was to check whether the tank has a chance of reaching Stepove and, ideally, also demolish Ukrainian firing positions that were identified previous time. Ukrainian reconnaissance teams spotted the Russian tank in advance, and the units on the ground got ready to meet it. Ukrainians responded reciprocally and also deployed a tank to the region. The moment the Russian tank assumed its firing position, Ukrainians opened fire. As a result, the Russian tank sustained damage, its turret stopped working, so Russians quickly deployed smokescreen and moved back behind the rails. It seems like the Russian commanders were satisfied with the performance because the next morning, Russians launched a mechanized assault. Ukrainian soldiers reported that Russians used 10 tanks and armored fighting vehicles and up to 100 troops in the attack. Unfortunately for Russians, this time, Ukrainians were not distracted by any other attack and met the Russian assault units right in front of the railways. A fighter from the Khorne Group reported that Russians did not even manage to reach the positions of Ukrainian infantry because the first 4 vehicles were destroyed with kamikaze drones, the other vehicles decided to escape, and the infantry followed them. Still, Ukrainians counted 40 more fresh corpses. Later that day, Ukrainians reported another wave of attack, this time purely with infantry, without any support from armored vehicles, but were met with machine gun fire from a Bradley. In the meantime, Russian forces tried to reestablish control over the positions north of the chemical plant. As you remember, according to the Ukrainian Avdiivka Military Head and geolocated footage from Ukrainian Special Forces, the area was cleared. Nonetheless, recent combat footage shows that a new batch of Russian troops arrived to secure these positions. Simultaneously, according to the Institute for the Study of War, Ukrainians conducted a successful attack from the chemical plant along the rails and secured their positions. So, it seems like after the previous clashes, the area became a grey zone, and both parties tried to recapture it. Russians attacked it from the north and are now holding the ground, while Ukrainians attacked from the south and are now holding the ground. Russian commanders understand that the current level of control is insufficient for the resumption of the attack on the chemical plant, which is why the clashes for this strongpoint are expected to continue. In order to undermine the Russian offensive capabilities, Ukrainian forces conducted a missile strike on the main Russian logistical center in the region. After Ukrainians cut off the connection with Horlivka by blowing up a bridge, Donetsk became the main supply hub of both flanks. Local residents reported hearing a series of powerful explosions followed by secondary detonations. Judging also by the scale of the fire, Ukrainians managed to unveil and destroy a huge ammunition depot on the outskirts of the city. In the aftermath of the strike, Russian forces are expected to ration their supplies of ammunition and equipment and decrease the pace of their offensive operation, giving Ukrainians an opportunity to improve their tactical position.

My country has been invaded by Russia. In this video I will tell you what happened on the six-hundred-fiftieth day of the war. Day 650: Dec 05 Today, there are a lot of updates from the Kherson region. Here, the most intense clashes are taking place in the forest south of Krynky. Russian sources reported that the forest area is characterized by constant meeting engagements because both sides are actively trying to push each other out. Many Russian sources admitted that Ukrainians managed to secure new gains south of hothouses, although they tried to dismiss them as temporary or mild. Some analysis claimed that this is a direct result of the recent regrouping under the veil of fog and rain. Moreover, Russian soldiers complained that even after the fog dissipated, Ukrainian forces continued attempts to transfer reinforcements and supplies to positions on the left bank. In order to undermine Ukrainian offensive capabilities in the region, Russian forces doubled down on airstrikes with the goal of destroying Ukrainian supplies of ammunition and equipment, as well as manpower. Due to the density of Ukrainian air defense, Russian forces stopped relying on attack helicopters, such as Ka-52 and Mi-24. Ukrainian Tavriisk Group of Forces Spokesman Oleksandr Shtupun stated that Ukrainian forces shoot them down as soon as they enter the range. Moreover, Shtupun stated that due to Ukrainian air defense capability, Russians find it risky to even get within 40-kilometer reach to launch FAB glide bombs, prompting Russians to use KAB glide bombs, which can be launched from a safer distance. The problem with KAB bombs is that they are even less accurate. Today, Russian analysts posted and analyzed complaints of the Russian soldiers who are operating in Krynky. Russian soldiers reported that they intercepted a Ukrainian drone and used the tape to find out the location of the Ukrainian drone operators. They said that after many hurdles, they finally managed to communicate the coordinates to the Russian Air Force, however, the launched bomb missed the target. They tried to reorder the strike, but the Russian Air Force replied that the strike had been successful. It seems like if the bomb explodes, the strike is marked as successful. As a result, Ukrainian drone operators escaped. Interestingly, Ukrainian forces recently posted a video featuring the same operation but against Russian drone operators. The operation was conducted by the famous Madiar’s Birds Detachment. Madiar said that his electronic warfare group successfully intercepted a Russian drone and immediately analyzed the footage to identify the location and, once identified, sent it to the reconnaissance drone operators for verification. A Ukrainian drone pilot noticed an unusual antenna and a cable that was leading directly to the house nearby. The house turned out to have a few windows that were also very small, so instead of attacking them with kamikaze drones, Ukrainians ordered a HIMARS strike. A few minutes later, the house was completely eliminated, together with all Russian drone operators. And this is extremely important because as Russian artillery and aviation are unresponsive and inaccurate, Russian soldiers on the contact line are mostly relying on the help from drone crews. If a reconnaissance team loses all drones, they are forced to conduct reconnaissance by foot. Russian drone operators understand that the chances of survival would not be very high in this case, which is why they minimize the use of drones, which in turn gives more freedom of movement for Ukrainians. Moreover, today, Madiar posted a video reporting that they crowdfunded 180 new boats for the marines. He said that the marines had already received 56 boats and showed the arrival of the new batch of 30 news boats that were immediately transported to respective detachments. Even though Ukrainians have some specialized boats equipped with machine guns, they are less mobile and easier to spot compared to conventional small boats, and since Ukrainians have established virtually full control over the river delta, there is no one to shoot from these machine guns as Ukrainians are on both sides of the river. Under such conditions, using smaller but more mobile boats that Ukrainian people helped to purchase for the fighters is much more convenient. So, the new batch of boats means that Ukrainians will continue to push and expand the bridgehead, and we will receive more news from this region very soon.

Ukraine mounted its long-awaited summer counteroffensive to retake Russian-occupied territories in June 2023. In September of the same year, the overall progress has reportedly been sluggish. Here's why. #UkraineRussiawar Subscribe: 🤍 Livestream: 🤍 Facebook: 🤍 Twitter: 🤍 Instagram: 🤍 Visit our website: 🤍
The summer counter-offensive in Ukraine is drawing to a close without making the breakthroughs Ukraine and its allies had hoped for. Ukraine began the counter-offensive in early June to push Russian forces back from land they seized, attacking three points along the 600-mile-plus (965km) frontline. The BBC has secured rare access to the 24th Mechanised Brigade, who have been fighting in the east. Please subscribe here: 🤍 #BBCNews
7 weeks into the offensive, only 8 villages returned to Ukraine, with no apparent breakthrough. The cost for such meager gains was staggering. One in three vehicles prepared for the offensive ended up destroyed or damaged. The combination of minefields, artillery and anti-tank weapons proved too difficult. Ukrainian troops are exhausted and very little reserves are left to carry on the counteroffensive.

The Ukrainian military says it has broken through Russian defense lines in the southeastern Zaporizhzhia region, as its counteroffensive continues. Officials say the breakthrough took place near the village of Verbove - with troops advancing through a crucial defensive front. The extent of Kyiv's gains are still unclear, however, as Moscow's forces are heavily fortified in the area. Ukraine's counteroffensive has been slowed by extensive layers of Russian minefields, anti-vehicle defenses and fighting positions. Heavy fighting is raging around the ruined city of Bakhmut in eastern Ukraine. A senior Ukrainian official has confirmed that the objective is to pin Russian forces there and prevent them from being redeployed to other areas, such as southern Ukraine.

It looks like Ukraine’s counter offensive is over. The force is exhausted, either physically or in terms of logistics expended. It needs a pause, a regroup, a replenishment. To culminate is not to be defeated, it is a routine and expected phase of any military advance. The trick for military commanders is to anticipate when it will occur and plan accordingly. Kyiv will have taken many lessons about planning, force integration and training from the counter offensive. However, in geographic terms the advance has not reached any of the objectives it was likely designed to, for example, Tokmak, Melitopol, perhaps even (although this would always have been a bit ambitious) the Sea of Azov. We are entering a phase of what General Valery Zaluzhny, the head of Ukraine’s armed forces, referred to recently as positional warfare. Meaning, largely static, as opposed to manoeuvre warfare, when the lines can shift rapidly and dramatically. For example, last year when Ukraine broke through Russian lines near Kharkiv and dashed eastwards for about 50 miles, or when Moscow pulled its troops back from Kherson and across the Dnipro River.

Direct HIT! A large Russian convoy DESTROYED with an incredible Ukrainian offensive!
Russia's "third wave" of assaults on the eastern Donetsk town of Avdiivka is unlikely to lead to a rapid Russian advance in the area, a think tank has said. Russia unleashed what Ukraine said was the third major attempt to capture Avdiivka in two months, sending about 50 assaults supported by armor. On one day alone, Ukraine's military said it had "eliminated" 1,100 Russian soldiers and 30 tanks.

My country has been invaded by Russia. In this video I will tell you what happened on the six-hundred-fortieth day of the war. Day 640: Nov 25 Today, there are a lot of updates from Avdiivka. Here, Russian forces finished regrouping and launched another wave of attacks. The most intense clashes took place on the northern flank of Avdiivka, where Russians did not give up on the idea of getting a foothold on the chemical plant territory. Russian sources posted footage from the Russian reconnaissance drone operators that show exactly what Russians see when they go to storm the plant. As you can see, the chemical plant is huge and has a lot of buildings and other structures that are used as fortifications. Russian sources reported that the maze of complex and unusual structures gives Ukrainians an even bigger opportunity to establish cameras for surveillance of the area or electronic warfare systems to suppress Russian drones because they are extremely difficult to detect in such a setting. When some camera or antenna is established on the side or top of the building, it stands out and is quite easy to detect, while in this maze, very often cameras, electronic warfare systems, and sometimes even ATGM positions are unnoticed. By the way, Russian analysts recently complained about the fact that Russian forces continue using the same road even though it is under total ATGM fire control. Today, a Russian soldier published a video showing a graveyard of Russian vehicles on the road in front of the chemical plant. Some analysts concluded that this is exactly the region that some complained about, however, it seems it had no influence, and the Russian commanders continue sending forces via the same road. Moreover, Ukrainians continued attacks on the Russian key logistical routes from Horlivka, as described in the previous video. Ukrainian fighters from the one-hundred-ninth brigade showed how they caught multiple pieces of equipment in Verkhnotoretske. In one raid, Ukrainians destroyed 1 satellite communication system, 1 howitzer, 1 armored fighting vehicle, 3 trucks with personnel or equipment, and 3 cars used by Russian soldiers. Such actions impeded Russia's ability to launch a new wave of attacks. Nonetheless, the Russians received the order to advance with the forces that they managed to accumulate. The first vector of the attack became the chemical plant. As Russians lost control over the tree lines in front of the plant during the regrouping, their first objective was to retake them. Russian forces rapidly ramped up their offensive operation to generate gains before Ukrainians could respond with sufficient means. Once the tree lines were occupied, Russians started sending even more troops to get a foothold on the plant territory. Unfortunately for Russians, Ukrainians established total fire control over these tree lines. Ukrainian fighters from the forty-seventh brigade released a video showing how they opened fire from Bradleys precisely at the tree lines that Russians used to channel reinforcements. Russian forces found themselves in a very inconvenient position and redirected these forces to counter the Ukrainian firing points. For this, they opened another vector of attack toward Stepove. The goal here was to push Ukrainians out of the village and at least temporarily suppress the fire from machine guns by attacking Ukrainian firing points from Stepove. Unfortunately for Russians, that did not work either. Ukrainian mechanized units were tightly controlling the Berdychi-Stepove area, and as reported by a fighter from the twenty-fourth brigade, Russians used up to 20 vehicles of various types, crossed the rails, and then 90% of the assault unit was destroyed, while the rest fled. The failed attack on Stepove undermined the Russian attack on the chemical plant, and the Russians retreated. Overall, Ukrainian forces established fire control over Russian logistical routes that Russians must use to conduct any attack on the chemical plant. As a result, Russians not only failed to accumulate a critical mass of forces to overwhelm the Ukrainian defense but also got their offensive undermined by using roads that are exposed to Ukrainian fire. The lack of forces also did not allow Russians to be flexible and respond to emerging threats, which is why the attack ended before the Russians managed to achieve anything significant.

Since then, many critics point out that Ukrainian progress has been meagre for such a long period of time. Other sources suggest, however, that things are moving forward relentlessly. The question, therefore, is where exactly are we, how is the counteroffensive going, what can we really expect from the Ukrainian military macro-operation, are we looking at a failure, an announcement or a near victory? In this video we tell you all the details.
Can Ukraine make it to the sea of Azov ? Will Russian forces be able to readjust to the gains recently made? Since then the picture on the battlefield has become more clear and on September 23rd Ukrainian forces have since broken through the 2nd line of defenses in Verbove which means they’ve cleared a path through the anti-tank obstacles allowing armor to pour through. They are still 20 km from Tokmak which if they are able to capture that city it will represent a real breakthrough in all the layers of defensive lines and it's the stated minimum goal of Ukraines offensive at this point. Written by: Chris Cappy & Justin Taylor Edited by: Maksym The redeployment of the Russian 76th Guards Air Assault Division is Russia’s hope that this force will stop the Ukrainian advance attempt in their tracks. This unit is said to be one of the most combat effective and best Russian units there are. Who exactly is Ukraine up against? In command of this elite unit is 43 year old Dennis Shishov he likely has the rank of Major General he has received a Hero of the Russian Federation medal for his prior actions at the Dnieper River in 2022. Reports indicate “Denis' unit was responsible for seizing and holding the bridge near Kakhovka and reportedly repelled 7 attacks. He received shrapnel wounds to the head, but apparently survived.” To give you an idea of his qualifications he completed Ryazan Higher Airborne Command School in (2003), and training at the Combined Arms Academy of Russian Armed Forces in (2014). So in theory he has experience in planning combined arms maneuvers. Join this channel to get access to perks: 🤍 Task & Purpose is a military news and culture oriented channel.

Once more unto the breach, dear friends. The Ukraine offensive was launched on Sunday June 4th 2023 on at least four sectors at the same time. This is a massive effort to breach Russian defenses along the over 1,000 km long front line. Ukraine aims to retake their territory and drive a wedge between Russia’s Land bridge in the south. But was this an overly ambitious and unrealistic goal? Well If you’re rooting for Russia, your view of the offensive so far is likely that Ukrainian forces' assault has slammed into an impenetrable Russian wall. You’ll point to Russian figures that Ukraine has lost 7,000 soldiers and 160 tanks and 360 armored vehicles destroyed including viral videos of destroyed fancy western vehicles. 2 Bros 1 Bunker Podcast: 🤍 Written by: Chris Cappy Edited by: Maksym If you’re rooting for Ukraine you likely believe the full counter offensive has yet to begin and only 1/4th of the 9 to 12 assault brigades have even been committed to the fight. You Probably think this movement will take time and look less like a sweeping victory and more like a creeping one. I’m going to parse through the front line reports and try to look past the fog of war and look past the propaganda on both sides to see if we can get a better sense of what is really happening. We’ll look at NATO documents that I found that detail western breaching theory tactics and citrine.

Try Ground News today and get 30% off your subscription by visiting 🤍 Most observers (Western and Russian) seem to have expected Ukraine to go over onto the offensive sometime in the 2023 campaign season. Such a move was well telegraphed and a natural extension of Ukraine's stated objectives of taking back occupied territories from the Russian Federation. By mid-June, it was clear Ukraine had started an offensive effort, launching probing actions at multiple points along the front and finally showing some of the heavy Western equipment it had received over the last six months. Those initial attacks ran into the teeth of heavy Russian defences, and progress since then has been slower than the Ukrainian High Command may have hoped. Initially I had planned not to touch these developments for some time - but with the recent information environment extending the full range of takes from 'Ukraine has lost the war' to 'everything is according to plan' I thought it was worth making an effort to try and clearly interpret (as far as possible) the data as we have it now. So I hope you find this examination of the campaign of the last few weeks useful, and I'll see you all again next week. Patreon: 🤍 Caveats & Comments: As mentioned in the video - the confidence level when dealing with a developing offensive is always going to be very low so those and all usual caveats apply with an additional emphasis for this episode. I'd also like to note this episode was mostly prepared before the recent Wagner mutiny in Russia - and as a result largely reflects a state of affairs as it existed before that incident. Finally I'd like to note that when talking about equipment removed from the Arsenal discussed in this video, the stated figure applies to a wider area of the base than shown on screen (which I'm aware might be confusing).

My country has been invaded by Russia. In this video I will tell you what happened on the six-hundred-thirty-ninth day of the war. Day 639: Nov 24 Today, there are a lot of updates from the Avdiivka direction. Here, earlier this week, Ukrainians conducted an important operation to undermine the whole Russian offensive operation. And this counterattack took place in a somewhat unexpected region because it was conducted around 20 kilometers north of Avdiivka. At first glance, these two sections of the front line seem unrelated, however, the stability of the front line around Horlivka is far more important for the Russian offensive than anything else. The reason why Horlivka plays such a crucial role in the Russian offensive operation is simple – Horlivka is the main logistical center in the region. It is true that there is also Donetsk; however, Russians use Donetsk to supply the southern flank of Avdiivka, while the northern flank of Avdiivka almost solely relies on Horlivka. Given that the most intense clashes have been taking place on the northern flank, the importance of Horlivka is hard to overestimate. That is why when Russians were conducting large-scale suicidal assaults in an attempt to breach the northern flank at the beginning of the offensive, local residents of Horlivka reported that there was a crisis in the city, as hundreds of vehicles were delivering wounded Russian soldiers, the hospitals were full, and Russians had to launch advertisements to urgently attract surgeons to Horlivka. Moreover, as reported by Ukrainian Intelligence, Russian forces allocated forty thousand troops as reserves for the offensive operation, and it is obvious that it is impossible to have them in the small villages close to the front, so a huge part of Russian reserves is stationed in Horlivka. And this is extremely important because Ukrainians decided to use this against Russians. Ukrainians developed a two-step plan. First of all, Ukrainians needed to cut off the connection between Horlivka and the front. And secondly, Ukrainians needed to force Russians to urgently deploy these reserves to fight in the other section of the front line. The first part of the plan was implemented rather quickly because a Ukrainian sabotage group managed to get behind the enemy lines and blow up the most important bridge in the area. Without this bridge, Russians had only two options: they could take much riskier roads that are close to the contact line, or they could make a huge detour and enter the region from the side of Donetsk. Using the roads to Donetsk didn’t make much sense because the whole purpose of using Horlivka as a logistics center is its proximity to the northern flank, so Russians took short but risky roads. Unfortunately for Russians, even the Horlivka-Donetsk highway was under fire control of Ukrainian drones, as can be seen from many videos, so when the logistical routes moved closer, the Russian losses of equipment skyrocketed. As you remember, Ukrainian fighters from Avdiivka said that thanks to the high-level coordination between drone and artillery teams, more than 60% of Russian vehicles were destroyed before they even got close to the front, which later forced Russians to reduce their use of heavy equipment. This was when Ukrainians understood that the supplies from Horlivka were undermined, and it was time to cut off Russian reserves by forcing them to engage near Horlivka. In preparation for the attack, Ukrainian forces started destroying Russian observation posts. Soon, Russian sources started posting combat footage with the unusual activity of Ukrainian forces right in front of Horlivka. As it turned out, it was just a reconnaissance-in-force operation. After two days of such attacks, the grey zone was reduced, and Ukrainians understood that the Russian defense here was weak. That is when, earlier this week, Ukrainians made a powerful push, breached the Russian defense in front of the entrance to the mounts, and assumed total control over them. Geolocated footage shows how Russian forces were trying to rebuff the Ukrainian attack with drone strikes, but it was unsuccessful. Moreover, footage showed that Ukrainians got at least one armored fighting vehicle on top of the heap and opened fire from machine guns on the Russian forces below. Russian forces spent the whole week stabilizing the situation, and even though they still have not managed to regain control over the tactical heights in the region, they did deploy a lot of troops to fight here, which is exactly what Ukrainians wanted.

US Only Kings and Generals animated historical documentary series on Modern Warfare continues with the aftermath of the first phase of the Russian Invasion of Ukraine in 2022 (youtu.be/yBZPE9o2gHU). This set up the second phase of the war - battle of Donbas (youtu.be/K2N_fHKrWIg) and the war of attrition in May (youtu.be/D-93q4GMFT0) and continued with Russia's best month in June (youtu.be/SIm4mQihHdA). In the July 2022 video we talked about the arrival of the HIMARS systems which strengthened Ukrainian positions and changed the war (youtu.be/WS0D0X8V6rg), while this video will focus on the events of August, as we will see how Russian logistics and manpower problems were worsened by the HIMARS strikes, the risk around the Zaporizhia Nuclear Powerplant and the long expected beginning of the Ukrainian counter-offensive in Kherson (youtu.be/2hZoQ4xebGw). Previously we discussed the Kherson counteroffensive in the first 2 weeks of September and showed how the Ukrainian counteroffensive in Kharkiv Oblast - Balakliya-Izium counter-offensive succeeded, pushing the Russians across Oskil and Lyman (youtu.be/gJRjKuss_Co) In the second half of September, Ukraine liberated even more territory in Kherson (youtu.be/S7usqwT-ty4), while this video will talk about the events of the beginning of October, including the attack on the Crimean - Kerch bridge (youtu.be/i4gebic_Wnc). In the second half of October, positional and attritional warfare continued to dominate, still Ukraine managed to attack the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Sevastopol and the Grain Deal was almost cancelled (youtu.be/wUAzOsvaX7k), while in the beginning of November, Ukraine finally liberated Kherson (youtu.be/sYr5mTNljN8). In the second half of November, winter took over, making the military operation more difficult (youtu.be/8r0JfS6WTWs), while in the first half of December, the stalemate continued (youtu.be/OOpew0MbJtg). In the second half of December and first half of January, Russia advanced around Bakhmut, taking Soledar (youtu.be/TmpWByOr6JQ), while in the second half of January, Russians regained initiative on the Kreminna axis and gained ground around Bakhmut, while the West announced that Ukraine will finally receive tanks alongside more armoured vehicles (youtu.be/eoIbUUPCkKg). Next we talked about the possible Russian attack vectors and deduced what is the Russian plan for winter 2023 is (youtu.be/oOGgRgWzElA). In the first half of February, Russia continued advancing around Bakhmut, but its Vuhledar attack ended in a disaster (youtu.be/uazg6o-c1U4), while in the second half the battle of Bakhmut continued (youtu.be/T19EjO6JTZM). In the beginning of March, the battles for Bakhmut and Avdiivka continued (youtu.be/riQOPfoPwDs), and by the end of March, Russia occupied 0.01% of Ukraine (youtu.be/bRxjOJSv8Bg). In the first 2 weeks of April, Russian advance slowed down even more, while Ukraine was preparing for a counteroffensive (youtu.be/-i_qpQI29Io), while in the second half of April, a stalemate resumed (youtu.be/W_D9XZV5Qls). In the first half of May, the battles around Bakhmut continued and the Wagner crisis began, as Prigozhin continued playing his own game (youtu.be/rXyonEl1uzQ), while in the second Bakhmut finally fell, while the Ukrainians started conducting raids to the Belgorod oblast (🤍 In the beginning of June, Ukraine started its counter-offensive, while the Wagner crisis continued to be a problem (youtu.be/pBMoIOodqm0), spilling into a failed coup in the second half of June (youtu.be/HAY2u55fDGo), while in the first half of July, Ukrainian counterattack continued (youtu.be/gPGcSefG-ek), and in the second Ukrainians finally reached the Surovikin line (youtu.be/qxfT_tTJ7B0). In this video we will talk why Ukrainian counter-offensive is progressing so slowly.

My country has been invaded by Russia. In this video I will tell you what happened on the six hundred fourth day of the war. Day 604: Oct 20 Today, the biggest news comes from Avdiivka. Here, more information became available about the renewed Russian offensive effort, and the results show that this was the biggest Russian disaster over the last year. The Ukrainian General Staff reported that total Russian losses reached almost 1400 soldiers and 175 tanks and armored fighting vehicles in one day, and 65% of these losses came from two 5 km segments of the front near Avdiivka. The losses are almost 50% higher than during the first day of the offensive, which may come as a surprise because yesterday’s attack was not even as intense. However, looking deeper into the question, such losses become unsurprising. The reason why the second wave of the Russian offensive was even more self-destructive is twofold. First of all, there was no element of surprise. And even though Ukrainian Intelligence did know in advance about the coming Russian attack on Avdiivka, this is not the same as soldiers on the ground knowing what exactly they are going to see and how exactly to deal with it. So, Ukrainian soldiers were more prepared and understood what to do to rebuff the Russian attack more efficiently. Secondly, this time, Russian forces failed to support their ground operations with airstrikes to the same extent because over the last 11 days Russians incurred 5 confirmed fighter jets losses and 2 more unconfirmed, meaning not only that Russians have fewer jets but also that Ukrainians adjusted and are ready to intercept them en masse. The main goal of yesterday’s attack once again became taking Terikon, which is a 25-meter-tall artificial mountain. The main idea is that once Russian forces establish control over the heights, they will be able to control the whole region and advance in all directions. And theoretically, this makes sense because Terrikon is extremely wide and has a lot of firing positions. However, practically, this would imply storming a 25-meter-tall wall under the constant fire of Ukrainians. In the aftermath of the storming operation, some Russian sources reported that they achieved success and established control over the trees in front of Terrikon. Simultaneously, Russian forces launched an assault across the fields in the direction of Stepove. Geolocated footage reveals that Russians increased the sizes of their assault units by more than 50%, hoping that enough of them would survive during the crossing to take the Ukrainian positions. The video shows at least 14 tanks and armored fighting vehicles, which carry up to 100 soldiers. The infantry was dropped around 150 meters from Ukrainian trenches because Russians wanted to get their vehicles back. After that, some of the vehicles managed to escape, while the infantry got stuck in the field. I will not show you the graphic footage, but the infantry was lying on the ground because of non-stop machine gun fire, and it took just several artillery shots at the crowd to eliminate the whole assault unit. And this was just one assault. Ukrainian reconnaissance teams reported that they were sending one attack after another. Ukrainians were using all types of weapons to prevent Russian tanks from getting close. Sometimes, Russian assault units were destroyed just several meters in front of the trenches. As one Ukrainian soldier said, Russians received such a powerful rebuff yesterday that they conducted almost no assaults today. A Russian soldier also commented about the situation and said that it’s high time the Russian Command reconsidered its approach of sending one battalion after another to hell, thinking that maybe this time they manage to entrench. The situation in Avdiivka is so bad for Russians that the President of the Russian Federation Vladimir Putin visited the main military Headquarters in Rostov-on-Don to personally talk with the Chief of General Staff Valery Gerasimov. The specifics of the discussion were not disclosed, however, some sources speculated that Russians expected to take Avdiivka by today. Putin also sent his regards to the commanders. The President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky also had a special meeting with high commanders, and the main topic of the discussion was also Avdiivka. The Chief-in-Command Valeri Zaluzhny, who recently visited the front line, reported on the ongoing successful defensive operation in Avdiivka. So far, everything is under control.

The recent turmoil in Russia in the wake of Wagner Group's mutiny led by Yevgeny Prigozhin could provide opportunity for Ukraine's battlefield troops in their counteroffensive, particularly near Bakhmut, Zaporizhzhia and Vuhledar, where the bulk of the fighting is happening.

In a recent development, Ukrainian forces, under the leadership of President Volodymyr Zelensky, have successfully thwarted a significant attempt by Russian troops to advance in the Vuhledar direction of the Donetsk region. This confrontation sheds light on the strategic importance of Vuhledar and its role in shaping the course of the conflict. Vuhledar, a town in eastern Ukraine, has become a battleground of strategic significance in the ongoing war. Positioned on a hilltop overlooking the Donbas region, Vuhledar has played a pivotal role since 2014. Not only is it a major coal-mining center, but it also holds key rail lines that the Russians use to supply their troops in the Donbas. Let's delve into the recent events and understand the importance of this town for both Ukraine and Russia.

Ukraine has often been criticized for its counter-offensive, with critics saying it is slow, inefficient, and too spread out. Reports in prominent and influential media outlets have cited different officials and experts offering various critics, but one aspect in particular has stood out. According to the New York Times, on Aug. 10, in a video teleconference, Gen. Mark Milley, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff; his British peer, Adm. Tony Radakin; as well as Gen. Christopher Cavoli, the commander of US Forces in Europe, urged Ukraine's top general, Valeriy Zaluzhnyi, to focus Ukraine's troops on one main front.

After a month of offensive operations, Ukraine's counteroffensive has stalled because Russian fortifications proved to be much stronger than anticipated. The combination of minefields, artillery and airstrikes forced the Ukrainian Army to spread out and downsize attacks, and often without armored vehicles, with a bigger focus on infantry for small group infiltrations to bypass Russian defenses. The biggest challenge for Ukraine at this moment is how to deal with local Russian counterattacks.

Ukrainian forces continue their relentless advance after breaching Russia's initial defensive lines in the south. Now, their focus shifts to breaking through another heavily defended territory. In recent days, the Ukrainian Army has been engaged in intense battles near a village called Verbove, located six miles east of Robotyne, which Ukrainian fighters retook just last week. The Black Bird Group, a volunteer organization specializing in satellite imagery and social media analysis from the battlefield, reported on Monday that Ukrainian soldiers successfully cleared obstacles and reached Russian infantry fighting positions on the outskirts of Verbove.
UKRAINE-KRIEG: "Der Druck der Russen ist tatsächlich kolossal!" Jetzt zieht Putin die Schlinge zu Russland hat nach Angaben der ukrainischen Armee über Nacht mehr als ein Dutzend Marschflugkörper auf die Ukraine abgefeuert. Von insgesamt 19 abgeschossenen Marschflugkörpern seien 14 von den ukrainischen Streitkräften abgewehrt worden, teilte ein Sprecher der ukrainischen Luftwaffe am Freitag gegenüber Staatsmedien mit. Angaben über mögliche Opfer oder Schäden machte er zunächst nicht. Demnach wurden die Raketen über den Regionen Kiew und Dnipropetrowsk in der Zentralukraine abgeschossen. Dem Sprecher zufolge hatten sie zivile Infrastruktur im Visier. Nach Angaben der Behörden in Kiew war es der erste Raketenangriff auf die ukrainische Hauptstadt seit 79 Tagen. Die Marschflugkörper hätten ihr Ziel aber nicht getroffen, hieß es. Russland startet fast jede Nacht massive Drohnen- und Raketenangriffe auf die Ukraine. Kiew rechnet für den Winter mit einer ähnlichen russischen Offensive gegen die geschwächte ukrainische Energie-Infrastruktur wie im vergangenen Winter. Hunderttausende Menschen waren damals nach massiven Luftangriffen bei eisigen Temperaturen ohne Strom oder Heizung. #ukraine #putin #weltnachrichtensender Abonniere den WELT YouTube Channel 🤍 WELT DOKU Channel 🤍 WELT Podcast Channel 🤍 WELT Netzreporter Channel 🤍 Der WELT Nachrichten-Livestream 🤍 Die Top-Nachrichten auf WELT.de 🤍 Die Mediathek auf WELT.de 🤍 WELT Nachrichtensender auf Instagram 🤍 WELT auf Instagram 🤍 In eigener Sache: Wegen des hohen Aufkommens unsachlicher und beleidigender Beiträge können wir zurzeit keine Kommentare mehr zulassen.

Ukraine’s highly anticipated counteroffensive has so far failed to show significant victories. With dire consequences for its troops. A shortage of ammunition and less support from the West have brought the war against Russia to a standstill. Many Ukrainians are dreading the approaching winter because of renewed Russian attacks on critical infrastructure - and they’re also worried about being abandoned by the West altogether. Will the winter bring a war of exhaustion that will further jeopardize Ukrainian integrity and independence? On To the Point we ask: Failing against Russia: Can Ukraine survive the war?

Big questions are being raised about the effectiveness of the Ukrainian counteroffensive — the major military push against Russia that was meant to wrestle back territory in the war in Ukraine. With winter fast approaching, there have been few gains in the ground battle against Russian forces. Now, a commander on the frontline has told the ABC that the counteroffensive has failed — due in large part to poor planning. In this special report, Europe correspondent Steve Cannane spent time with troops in southern Ukraine.
