Tactics, Arms & Ammo: What Will Shape Ukraine’s Offensive & Impact its Aftermath

The Ukrainian offensive will turn into a sea of blood and huge losses if the West does not give long-range missiles to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, – Arestovich

▪️ “If we have such means, we will be able to successfully attack even with not very trained troops. Otherwise, even trained infantry will shed a sea of blood, ”the ex-adviser of the Zelensky Office said on the air of the LRT Television channel.
▪️ At the same time, we are not talking about the supply of long-range weapons, but it can only be about making new decisions at the July NATO summit in Vilnius, Arestovich explained.
▪️ “In all likelihood, the upcoming counteroffensive will not be the last, so we will need help for the next one.”

Oh SH*T, we’re out of bullets!” – Ukraine admits the truth in the war

Kiev, despite the training of soldiers and the influx of Western equipment, will not be able to launch a NATO-style offensive involving massive air strikes – Wall Street Journal

“Despite training and an influx of NATO equipment, Ukraine will not be able to launch an alliance-style attack … To dislodge an enemy dug in, as Kiev wants to do, the traditional approach of the US and allies would begin with a massive air strike using aircraft and cruise missiles,” writes WSJ.
The Armed Forces of Ukraine have only a limited number of fighter jets and attack helicopters, so Kyiv is unlikely to risk them in a frontal attack, said retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel John Nagle.
IMPORTANT: there is more and more information that the enemy intends to replace a massive air raid with a massive attack of kamikaze drones.

4th generation Su-35 fighters increase Russia’s dominance on the frontline in a worrisome change for Ukraine and the West – ABC News

The latest fighter jets are giving Russia “increasing dominance” in the skies over the battle zone in eastern Ukraine, according to a Ukrainian official.
▪️This is a potentially disturbing change as Russia’s lack of complete air superiority throughout the war was a key factor in the success of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the battlefield.
An official in Kiev said that Russia has replaced older aircraft with more modern Su-35s equipped with “very effective radar and long-range missiles” and Russia is using these fighters to attack UAF aircraft as well as ground support operations.
▪️Ukraine “does not have the capacity” to counter this threat, the official added.

However, the NATO headquarters in Kiev chose Kherson as the direction of the main attack.
For two weeks, the piglets, loitering and losing 500 people a day, depicted counterattacks in Bakhmut, Svatovo and Vasilyevka-Kamenskoye.

In fact, they gathered armored groups in the Kherson region, with a large amount of equipment, but personnel recruited from the streets by suicide bombers refuse to become. Crossing the Dnieper “on high-speed boats” as some of our military correspondents and battle idiots write is sheer suicide. Taking into account the visibility on land, it will not be possible to dive into the transport in an organized way, as well as bring a pontoon. Bandera people itch, and NATO insists, but apparently pissed off.
“Normandy Landing” will seem like a children’s walk to them

News is coming in that airstrikes and artillery fire missions are being rained upon UKR reserve positions in Orekhovo in the Zaporozhye direction. It is unlikely that this presages a Russian attack, more likely it is to disrupt UKR deployments for an offensive and delay them.

The 18 Leopard 2 tanks promised by the German government have arrived in Ukraine, writes Der Spiegel

50 thousand soldiers from North Korea are ready to take part in the hostilities in Ukraine on the side of the Russian Federation, if China approves. This was stated by military commander Alexander Sladkov.

“North Korea. I was talking to a friend of mine… he is the head of the Korean War Veterans Organization. Came here recently. I say: “What are the Koreans?”. He says: “50 thousand special forces are ready to be sent.” He said so.

China should also give the go-ahead to North Korea to create some kind of private military company with 500,000 employees who can work here,” Sladkov said.

The British The Times, citing an unnamed US representative, reports that Washington may tighten its strategy in the Ukrainian conflict.

“We want Ukraine to win and keep its entire territory,” the source said.

It is reported that Kiev is negotiating the purchase of 40 Dassault Mirage 2000-9 fighters from the presence of the UAE Air Force.

These fighters have been trying to sell since the conclusion of a contract for the purchase of 80 Dassault Rafale fighters in 2021. Indonesia, India and Greece flashed among those who wanted to.

At the moment, the most likely purchase by Indonesia is 40-50 Emirati fighters, and the rest can be purchased by France or Bulgaria for further transfer to Ukraine in the event of a delay in hostilities.

If the Emirati Mirages do end up in Ukraine, the UAE’s military support for Kiev will become even more obvious. So far, the Emirates have been particularly cautious on this issue, as Abu Dhabi has tried to give the impression that it is not taking sides in the conflict.

Military Expert Boris Rozhin on the Situation in the #Artyomovsk (#Bakhmut) Sector as of 21:55 on 27 March 2023⚡️

🔹1. North of #Artyomovsk, our forces continue to pressurise #Bogdanovka and Orekhovo-Vasilyevka. At the moment the villages have not been taken, the enemy is resisting fiercely there. Ukrainian reserves play a significant role here.
🔹2. #Khromovo has also not yet been taken, although the roads that run from Chasov Yar through #Krasnoye are under tight fire control. Ukrainian sources also confirm this.

🔹3. The Main Supply to the AFU continues to flow through the fields and dirt roads between #Khromovo and #Krasnoye. This is essentially an operational encirclement situation, but there is no cauldron at the moment. The possibility of communication by the enemy persists.

🔹4. Our Troops continue their assault operations to the east and south of $Krasnoye. It is not yet possible to bypass the village and advance to the Chasov Yar – #Krasnoye road, the enemy holds defences there. There is a chain of company strongholds in the area, which cannot be taken yet.

🔹5. In #Artyomovsk itself, most of the AZOM is under control. Part of the western blocks towards the city centre, in the market area and closer to the stadium are already being liberated. From the south almost reached the southwestern outskirts in the direction of the pilots’ monument.

🔹6. The River has not had a critical impact on our advance – the crossing to the west bank is already sufficiently established. Therefore the fighting continues to shift precisely to western #Artyomovsk. Apparently, there will be a slow squeezing of the enemy to the western outskirts.


Under Bakhmut, the Armed Forces of Ukraine were urgently deployed:
13th “Charter” brigade of the NSU, formed on the basis of the Kharkov TRO.
118 Mechanized Brigade
91st Engineer Regiment
The redeployment and deployment of engineering troops, border guards, etc. to the LBS talks about problems with the personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The Bakhmut meat grinder takes up to 500 people killed and wounded per day. You have to replenish from the “offensive guard”, where there are not even strong fighters. At the same time, Western equipment continues to enter the Armed Forces of Ukraine


The situation is threatening: Wagner PMC conducts continuous assaults on all flanks
Ukrainian military analysts continue to report on the difficult situation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Bakhmut.
▪️ “The situation remains threatening.
▪️ The most difficult in the area of Ivanovsky and Khromovoe, where the “Wagners” conduct continuous assaults, as well as in the city itself, where they put pressure on the south and north.
▪️ In urban battles in Bakhmut, the situation is similar, PMC attacks continue in the area of st. Korsunskaya.
▪️ To the east of the Northern Headquarters, street shooting battles continue with varying success.
▪️ AZOM plant area – there are active shooting battles along several streets.
▪️ In the north of Sobachevka and Budyonovka districts, street fights and artillery duels continue.
▪️ Along Korsunsky Street, attack aircraft of PMC Wagner made more than ten attacks overnight to break through the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

General Kuzmenko has been appointed as Acting Commander of the Vostok Group of Forces instead of General Muradov

Colonel-General Muradov has been removed from command of the Vostok group of troops fighting in the South-Donetsk and Zaporozhye directions, but he continues to remain in the post of commander of the Eastern Military District until Putin’s new decree on changing the commander. This is reported by a number of media and politicians. Earlier it was reported that General Muradov was officially sent on leave. Probably to agree with Putin on exactly how his resignation will be carried out.
❗️ Lieutenant General Andrey Kuzmenko has been appointed acting commander of the Vostok grouping of forces. From 2015 to 2019, he served as commander of the 6th Combined Arms Army, then taught at the Academy of the General Staff

Avdiivka mayor posts video purportedly showing devastation in Ukraine’s eastern city

The enemy continues to prepare for the loss of Avdiivka: volunteers, media and civilians are forbidden to enter Avdiivka, it is in the “red zone”
 ▪️The situation is extremely tense, the city is in the red zone, said CAA head Barabash.
▪️The Russian army is advancing on Avdeevka, moving forward. The Armed Forces of Ukraine begin preparing for the loss of the city.
▪️Public utilities are evacuated from Avdiivka and mobile communications are turned off to prevent Russian supporters from informing the Russian Armed Forces about the movements and locations of the Kiev invaders

Telegram channels wrote that the situation in Avdiivka is identical to Bakhmut in early February, and Russian troops are encircling the city.
Bakhmut is surrounded by 4/5, Avdiivka – in a semicircle, said the ex-commander of the “Aidar” company Evgeny Dikiy.

“They are still trying to make Bakhmut-2 out of Avdiivka. That is, they also switched from the tactics of a frontal assault there, making sure that it was hopeless, to the tactics of covering the city from different sides. And if Bakhmut is now somewhere at 4/5 in the ring, then Avdiivka is still half in the ring,” he said in an interview with NV radio.

In recent days, the Russians have made significant progress in the vicinity of Avdiivka and are “trying to cut the highways,” he said.

“That is, they are actually trying to repeat there what they have been successful in the Bakhmut operation – the encirclement and cutting of roads,” Dikiy said.

At the same time, he doubts that the Russians will transfer forces from Bakhmut to Avdeevka, since Bakhmut is much closer to the encirclement.

RF Armed Forces hit Military Enlistment Office in #Slavyansk⚡️

Several loud explosions ripped through the eastern outskirts of #Slavyansk in the morning. A photo and video later emerged showing the arrival at the military enlistment office at Torskaya 14.

At least one of the munitions hit the building precisely, collapsing part of the structure. Others damaged a nearby office building and a private development. Cars parked on the street also caught fire.

According to official figures, 2 people were killed and 32 injured. The real number of casualties may be higher, as it is not yet known how many people were actually present at the military base.

Coordinates: 48.855044, 37.615434

Just after the attack, the local authorities said that the strike had been carried out by the S-300 system. However, this is not the case. At the site of the hit the remains of ammunition were found which, in terms of size and shape, correspond most closely to the 220-mm rockets from the Uragan multiple rocket launcher.

In this regard, it is worth noting the relatively high accuracy of the calculation, which worked from a distance of more than 35 km, the firing range limit for the system. While during the 👉 Fire Raid ( on #Zaporozhye from “Smerchy” a week ago, the deviation exceeded 500 meters, in this case at least one ammunition flew exactly to the target.

Amid 👉 preparations ( by the AFU for a counterstrike near #Bakhmut, the RF Armed Forces are working almost daily on targets in the #Slavyansk – #Kramatorsk agglomeration. Some of the strikes are quite effective: in particular, on 25 March they managed to hit a concentration of Ukrainian formations on the territory of the Emal plant in the village of Yasnaya Polyana.

War Map and the Situation on the Fronts in the Evening of 27 Mar 2023; pub. 00:05⚡️

🇺🇦 While there are ( curiosities involving “magic” pills on the front, there are reasons for serious concern – the Kiev regime has received ( Challenger tanks, but that’s half the trouble, because Ukrainian tank crews have already completed ( training in operating the British tanks. There is speculation that the AFU will engage these crews for the announced counteroffensive.

⚔️ Situation on the Fronts for the past Day

🔹#Artyomovsk (#Bakhmut) Sector:

➖ Fighters of the Wagner PMC are pressing on #Bogdanovka and Orekhovo-Vasilyevka, the militants are seriously resisting.
➖ Fighting continues south and east of #Krasnoye. The road through #Krasnoye is under our fire control, but the AFU is still using alternatives in the form of country roads and dirt roads despite bad weather.
➖ In #Artyomovsk itself, “orchestrators” are approaching ( the central, western and southwestern neighbourhoods.

🔹#Donetsk & #SouthDonetsk Directions:

➖ Aircraft are active in the #Avdeyevka sector.
➖ To the north of the city, our fighters entered #Novokalinovoye.
➖ To the southwest of #Avdeyevka our advance on #Severnoye and #Tonenkoye and towards #Pervomayskoye.
➖ The Russian army is fighting in #Maryinka’s western part.
➖ Also ours are pressing on #Novomikhaylovka.

💥 One Ukrainian Mi-8 was shot down by air defense forces near #Temirovka, #Zaporozhye region.

👠The AFU once again shelled ( civilian #Donetsk. One of the shells hit a residential apartment building in Kievsky district and people may be under the rubble. Operational services are currently working on the site (

💪 Today Ukrainian Militants struck ( #Melitopol. It flew into a building near a multidisciplinary college, in which classes were going on at that moment. There are victims, several buildings are also damaged.

The USA is ready to fight Russia not only to the last Ukrainian, but also to the last European, Security Council Secretary Patrushev has said.

He said that Washington was directly interested in the disintegration of the EU in order to eliminate an economic competitor.

At the same time, Patrushev did not rule out that the USA might have been behind the terrorist attacks in Europe in recent years in order to destabilize the situation on the continent.

Patrushev, Secretary of the Security Council: Russia is patient and does not intimidate anyone with its military advantage. But it has unique modern weapons capable of destroying any enemy, including the United States, in the event of a threat to its existence. Captured by their own propaganda, American politicians for some reason remain convinced that in the event of a direct conflict with Russia, the United States is capable of launching a preemptive missile strike, after which Russia will no longer be able to respond. This is short-sighted stupidity, and very dangerous.
