The Russian army in Zaporozhye holds back the onslaught of the Nazis

The enemy failed to make any significant progress, Vladimir Rogov, head of the We Are Together with Russia movement, told RIA Novosti.
Earlier, he stated that from four in the morning on June 5, ” active hostilities resumed in the area of the Vremevsky salient, which began yesterday .” According to him, attempts by the Ukrainian troops to attack are taking place in the area of the villages of Novopol, Priyutnoye, Novodarovka, Rivnopol – on the border of the Zaporozhye region and the DPR.

” Our army is holding  back the onslaught of Ukrainian militants, preventing them from advancing deep into our defenses. Active hostilities continue ,” Rogov said.

He also noted that the Ukrainian troops increased the intensity of shelling of the rear areas of the Zaporozhye region, using, among other things, long-range Storm Shadow missiles.

Vladimir Rogov

The enemy threw “Leopards” into battle, increasing their efforts in the offensive near Ugledar
This is reported by the battalion commander A. Khodakovsky:

▪️”The situation on Novodonetsk and to the left towards Velikonovoselovka is difficult – the enemy, having found our weak points, is stepping up efforts.
▪️For the first time we saw leopards in our tactical area. As I expected yesterday – smelling the smell of success, the enemy will throw additional forces into the battle.
▪️ Only in the area of Novodonetsk, up to thirty units of armored vehicles were recorded.” 

At this time, a convoy of 20 armored vehicles, including Leopard tanks, is moving in the Novodonetsky direction in the Velikonovoselovsky direction

The Western press writes that the first attempt of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to attack with large forces “almost failed” or, in other words, did not bring the desired result.

The New York Times writes about this, pointing out that their source among American military officials said that information from US military satellites recorded a surge in activity from Ukrainian military positions.

The satellites have infrared capabilities to track artillery fire and missile launches.

Today , the Russians published a video showing how an attempt by the Armed Forces of Ukraine to attack with significant forces was stopped. They write about the participation in the attack attempt of 50-60 units of heavy equipment. Many of which the Armed Forces have lost. Many were blown up by mines.

A very bad sign for Bankova. We agree with colleagues that now the goal of the media department of the OP to hush up the results of the offensive is clear. We also understand that this is only the beginning, but if all the attacks are like this, then before the start of the NATO summit, Ukraine will lose half of the accumulated military potential, which will start talking not about an offensive, but already a forced defense. 

Everyone who empathizes with our Armed Forces of the Russian Federation should understand that there is no offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the Southern Front.
The enemy is expected to carry out combat activities, with forces of up to 10 armored vehicles in various sectors of the front. which he considers a weak point of our units. Up to 5,000 people from the 4 brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and related forces and equipment are participating in the activities to find a gap in our defense.
Combat reconnaissance, offensive, counteroffensive – call it what you will, these were the expected actions on the part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. They were waiting and preparing. After 3 days, there will again be an increase in funeral activity in Ukraine, because. in the last two days. The Armed Forces of Ukraine lost up to 500 people killed and 600-800 wounded.
The “counterattack” continues

Regarding messages from the enemy that “there is no offensive.”

Since so far the enemy has not been able to capture significant settlements during the attacks, he has already laid a straw for himself in advance if he cannot take anything significant. In this case, after the failure of the offensive, it will be possible to say that we did not declare an offensive, therefore we did not capture anything. But if they can take something, then they will later declare that this is where the offensive took place.

The enemy simply does not want to step on the same rake as with the “counteroffensive near Artemovsk”, which lasted from May 10 to June 1 and did not lead to the occupation of at least one village. Here, the Armed Forces of Ukraine turned out to be hostages of their own propaganda, which rattled incessantly for several weeks about the “counterattack near Bakhmut” and which later turned out to have nothing to show against the backdrop of defeat in the battles for the city.

Zaporozhye direction 05.06 14:40
After yesterday’s repelled attack not far from Velikaya Novoselovka (border of the DPR and the Zaporozhye region), our troops are reloading their weapons and waiting for the next wave of suicide bombers
After the aerial reconnaissance carried out by our guys, it is clear that the enemy has reliably lost about 12 units of armored vehicles, including American Hummers

Right now, our troops are counterattacking in the Velikonovoselovsky direction, with the support of aviation and artillery….

Ugledarsko-Novoselovskoye direction: situation at 15.00 05.06.23

 The enemy offensive to the west from Velikaya Novoselka today seems to have run out of steam. Now the RF Armed Forces are counterattacking (they are even trying to recapture the positions lost yesterday). Artillery and aviation are working closely.

In the Novodonetsk area, the enemy is trying to consolidate his success – a head-on battle is underway.

Meanwhile, while I do not observe several important things – the massive use of drones to break through the defense of our troops. The dense work of NATO artillery. In general, the aviation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is not visible. Yes, and the news of “Loepards” has not yet received “visual” confirmation.

Also, in total, a maximum of three battalions (plus up to a tank battalion) are attacking on the entire sector. This is extremely small for the main blow.

And therefore it is absolutely not excluded that everything that we see is nothing more than an imitation of the main blow. Although it doesn’t even look like classic reconnaissance in battle. Too large scale.

-Yuri Podolyaka

It is reported from the field that the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation were able to return the village of Neskuchnoye under their control, from where our fighters were forced out yesterday during an attempted enemy offensive.

During the enemy offensive attempt , the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine amounted to more than 250 personnel, 16 tanks, 3 infantry fighting vehicles, 21 armored fighting vehicles. (According to the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation)

Presumably, the enemy was forced to retreat under Russian artillery fire.

Khodakovsky said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine used their “Leopards” near Novodonetsk in the battle. And he also says that the enemy continues to build up forces in this direction.


Attack near Ugledar repulsed: Armed Forces withdraw⚡️

This is reported by @wargonzo project sources at the front.

The unfolded offensive operations of the Armed Forces of the Ukraine at the junction of Zaporizhia and the DPR (Velikaya Novoselovka/Ugledar) ended with the retreat of the neo-Nazis to the previously occupied lines.

Despite the fact that the Armed Forces of the Ukraine managed to achieve minor tactical successes at the beginning of the day, they failed to draw up reserves and gain a foothold properly.

We have already reported that the enemy suffered serious losses in manpower and equipment (at least 7 tanks and about 10 more lighter military equipment were destroyed).

Now the information on losses is being specified.

It is possible that the enemy will resume attempts to carry out reconnaissance in force in this direction tomorrow as well. The situation under Ugledar is heating up.


Zelenskyy welcomes the ‘news we’ve been waiting for’
Volodymyr Zelenskyy has welcomed what he called “the news we have been waiting for” from troops fighting in and around the shattered eastern city of Bakhmut.
“First of all, I am grateful to each of our warriors, to all our defenders who gave us the news we expect. Bakhmut direction – well done, warriors,” the Ukrainian president said in his nightly address.
“The enemy knows that Ukraine will win. They see it. They feel it thanks to your strikes, soldiers, and in particular in Donetsk region. Thank you for that.”
He said Russia was reacting “hysterically” to any action undertaken by Ukrainian forces and singled out two units who “skillfully, decisively and effectively defend our positions, destroy the occupiers and, most importantly, move forward”.
Russia’s military said it had thwarted a major offensive against its forces in eastern Ukraine, but Ukrainian officials dismissed any notion that an anticipated major counteroffensive had started.

Powerful explosions at the facilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Poltava, Kharkiv and Dnepropetrovsk regions

Judging by the reports in the regional chats of Ukraine, in the Poltava and Kharkiv regions, air defense systems are extremely passive. Part of the missiles are now flying over the Cherkasy region towards Kyiv.

UPD. The detonation of the weapons storage again in Pavlograd, Dnepropetrovsk region, explosions in Dnepropetrovsk itself.

Explosions are reported in the Poltava region.

Explosions in the Dnepropetrovsk region

Explosions in Kharkiv region. So far, no specifics.

Air raid in Khmelnitsky region.

Air raid throughout Ukraine, except for the Lviv region.

New missiles in Kyiv and the region.

Missiles in Zhytomyr.

A new group of missiles from the Vinnitsa direction to Kyiv.

Rocket in the direction of the Cherkasy region.

Explosions in the Zhytomyr region.

Now rockets over the Khmelnitsky region.

Now missiles in the direction of Rivne.

I would like to point out that Ukrainians threw very well-equipped units into the Belgorod direction, plus the latest REB equipment. Just look at the trophies taken from the corpses to see how richly and expensively equipped at least some of the faggots were. Perhaps they were Poles or some other foreign bastards, the Ukrainians fought so hard for their bodies that they gave up everything, but they pulled them out.

The Ukrainian EW is very active, but this has not prevented them from detecting the enemy’s activity and covering them with artillery and MLRS fire. The guys now fighting on the border are real heroes. Highly motivated, well-equipped and trained units of the enemy, reinforced with tanks and artillery, are concentrated against them, without any ammunition starvation. But our guys, border guards, conscript infantrymen, artillerymen, tank and special forces find and kill the enemy.

All those who are now working at Belgorod frontier would very much like to see our FABs. All the more there are many places where they can and should be flown to.

After the most powerful artillery preparation, the enemy threw armored groups on the flanks near🇷🇺 Artyomovsk into the offensive.
The fighters say that they don’t remember this in the entire SMO.
At about 4:00 in the area of Soledar, Kleshcheevka and Berkhovka,our force immediately burned down 1 tank 🔥and 2 infantry fighting vehicles, dispersing the infantry that ran away to hide in the landings. Artillery finished off the enemy.
 In the Berkhovka area, the enemy was  unable  ❗️to occupy the settlement despite the fakes  on the Web.
On the southern flank near Kleshcheevka, the enemy covered the offensive with tactical smoke, but ran into a warm welcome from the BARS.
In other sections, 2 tanks, 3 infantry fighting vehicles and 50 Azov militants entered our positions, having received a response from artillery and having lost 1 tank 🔥 and infantry fighting vehicles also retreated.
We are processing information from the fighters from the field.


Soledar direction The situation at the end of June 5, 2023

 In the last weeks after his liberation, battles have unfolded around Bakhmut in the information space – there is very little reliable data on the situation at the front, and in the Ukrainian segment of the Internet they are already talking almost about entering Bakhmut.

🔻 What is known at the moment?

▪️There are local attacks by Ukrainian formations. Yesterday and today, the AFU tried to attack the Russian Armed Forces positions near the Berkhovsky reservoir from the south. Judging by the footage ( from the channel Turned in the war, the infantry was hit by artillery, and the sortie was thwarted.

Coordinates: 48.633452118400086, 37.93309664

 The head of the Wagner PMC, Yevgeny Prigozhin, announced the entry of the AFU into Berkhovka, but at the moment there is no confirmation of this fact. Entering the village without control over Zaliznyansky and Dubovo-Vasilevka is extremely problematic, and south of the reservoir the attack was repulsed.

▪️ To the north of the AFU of Ukraine unsuccessfully attacked the Russian Armed Forces positions in the direction of Zaliznyansky. Also, Ukrainian formations twice tried to break through at Razdolovka. As a result of the fighting, the Russian Armed Forces destroyed ( more than ten units of tanks and infantry fighting vehicles.

Apparently, the main fighting took place near the Dry Roach River. The AFU were moving from the north of Razdolovka, trying to swoop through to Soledar. So far, the attack has been repulsed.

▪️ There is also activation south of Bakhmut: information appeared on the Web about the offensive of the AFU on Horlivka. But sources on the ground refute these data: the AFU only continue indiscriminate shelling of the agglomeration.

A little north of Mayorsk, an assault group of the 28th Mechanized Brigade of the AFU tried to attack the strongholds of the Russian army near the Seversky Donets-Donbass water canal, no breakthrough was made, but attempts to cross the canal south of Kurdyumovka continue.


Putin ally’s Bakhmut alarm for Moscow; Wagner Chief reports new fighting | ‘Die As Heroes’

Exclusive interview of Victoria Tolkacheva with Yevgeny Prigozhin – full version. Main:

- About the capture of the Ukrainian Armed Forces of the previously abandoned positions in the Bakhmut area: the enemy has an understandable standard tactic – they feel the defense, wedged in and increase their efforts.

- Mobilization is needed, long-term training of fighters is needed, and what is happening now is chaos.

- About Belgorod: in order to stop what is happening, a public trial of all those involved under the law is needed.

- Prigozhin wrote a statement to the prosecutor’s office that it was necessary to initiate proceedings, to conduct an investigation into the murder of Russian citizens, into the fact of the genocide of the Russian population, into the fact of transferring the territories of the Russian Federation to the enemy.

- The Belgorod region asks to come PMC “Wagner”. First we need to go out, and then we will not be able to go there, as we will be blocked and will not be allowed. If Wagner comes there, nothing can be hidden, and now they just deceive and say that everything is more or less in order there. They wanted to block us and destroy us in Bakhmut, which is why there were explosives along the way. Of course, they are scared, because it is very close from the Belgorod region to Rublyovka, and suddenly we will go to ask where our ammunition is.

- Who gave the command to mine the rear roads is a separate issue. The lieutenant colonel mined the wrong units, not the territories that could stop the enemy. They mined along the PMCs’ retreat routes. The FSB and other agencies are conducting a deep check on this lieutenant colonel.

- About the fact that public methods of sorting out relations and revealing problems are to the delight of the enemy and do not bring anything good to our side: for almost a year they were silent and went like sheep to the slaughter, but society should know when the problem is total. It is necessary to voice and not correct mistakes. The first thing to do is restore the army’s respect for itself. Next – the military leaders who are, should be in the trenches with the soldiers.

“Because of the mistakes we made and the unwillingness to correct them, today we are losing the war. And it all depends on how society is mobilized.

Over the past 1 hour, Russian and Ukrainian channels reported that the Nova Kharkova Dam, located on the middle of the Dnieper River, was hit by an strike

Both Russian and Ukrainian sides accuse each other of conducting the attacks

Such a dam is important for damming the Dnieper River and ensuring fresh water supplies for the regions around the banks of the Dnieper, including the Crimean Peninsula


the problem is relevant to military strategy!
certainly we cannot really understand and imagine what the real military strategy is on both sides but certainly we can understand that there was an attempt by the UKROS to make an incursion across the dam in question…
a total flooding of the final part could facilitate a landing in large proportions with many landing craft by UKROS but furthermore a land defense by the Russian side would be easier …
we are no longer in Normandy … those who expect to make landings in large numbers must also count no less than a 50/60% of KIA …
the Russian strategy could also be to blow up all the dams on the DNIPRO taking into account that the primary source is in Belarus .. it means creating a clear demarcation and certainly giving a real vision of the military strategy.

It is reported about the destruction of the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station.

More than 80 settlements, including Kherson, will be in the zone of rapid flooding. Hundreds of thousands of people could be affected.

The water supply to a significant part of the south of Ukraine may be destroyed. The destruction of the HPP could leave the Zaporozhye Nuclear Power Plant without water for cooling.

In addition, the destruction of the Kakhovskaya dam will exclude the possibility of supplying water to Crimea in the coming years.

According to preliminary information, Ukrainian formations blew up the Kakhovskaya hydroelectric power station in Kherson Region. 


Kherson direction situation by the end of June 5, 2023

Against the background of the activation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in several sectors of the front, events in the Kherson direction fell out of coverage. In the past few days, active fighting has been going on there in the Dach area and near the islands near Kherson – Ukrainian formations already have a stable foothold on some of them.

The Armed Forces of Ukraine are firing indiscriminately at the positions of the 80th Motorized Rifle Brigade of the RF Armed Forces with large-caliber mortars and artillery. Target designation is provided by Bayraktar copters and drones from Dolgintsevo and Voznesensk airfields.

In the Dnieper basin, the number of speedboats has increased. Just yesterday, two boats with a landing force were destroyed near the island of Kruglik , which were trying to land on the shore with a swoop.

In addition, the other day, two small boats Metal Shark and Galaxy were delivered to Kherson, along with two groups of OTs MTR “South” , which may indicate preparations for more active operations near Kherson.

Also, detachments of Georgian mercenaries were deployed to the Shirokaya Balka-Kizomys line. And at the training grounds Ternovsky and Shirokiy Lan, there are still 21 and 22 ombr, as well as 38 obrmp. The 37th brigade is already participating in the battles in the Vremievsky sector .

Diverting attention and stretching Russian troops along the front is the main task of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at this stage of the ongoing offensive. And local attempts to force the Dnieper fit into this plan.
