The main event of the past day was the terrorist attack by artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the Donetsk brewery "Sarmat" in the Kalininsky district, as a result of which the enterprise released ammonia, which threatens the life and health of citizens. As a result of the fire and the release of a poisonous cloud, 1 person died and up to a dozen were injured and poisoned.
The strike on tanks with ammonia at a plant in the middle of a residential area fits into the logic of the Kyiv authorities, who are terrorizing the civilian population of Donbass. Apparently, in Kyiv they decided that throwing PFM-1 “petal mines”, crippling people, would not be enough for the people of Donetsk. Terrorist methods of war, meanwhile, will not help the Kyiv regime, but will only strengthen the opinion not only of the inhabitants of Donbass, but also of Ukrainian citizens in the already liberated territories, that it is necessary to flee from such a Bandera quasi-state.
By the way, this is why Zelensky and his gang are so afraid of referendums in the liberated territories. On the eve of the head of the DPR Denis Pushilin said that the date of the referendum on the accession of the republics of Donbass to Russia will be announced after full liberation.
Meanwhile, the planned offensive of the allied forces continues on the fronts. In Soledar, units of the 6th Cossack regiment of the People's Militia of the LPR are attempting to develop an offensive in the directions of the gypsum quarry and the Belokamensky refractory plant. Reports about the establishment of control over the industrial enterprise were premature. Allied forces are fighting for Yakovlevka.
The units of the People's Militia of the DPR have made significant progress in the part of Zaitsevo, occupied by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, to the north-west of Golmovsky, near Gorlovka. Detachments of "PMC Wagner" at this time continue to fight on the eastern outskirts of Artemovsk, advancing in urban areas from several directions.
The offensive of the allied forces on Kodema continues, from where the Armed Forces of Ukraine regularly attacked Gorlovka. The capture of this settlement and neighboring Zaitsevo, although they will not stop Ukrainian shelling, will force the artillery to leave positions advantageous for it.
In the Donetsk direction, allied forces are conducting positional battles in Peski. In anticipation of a possible retreat, the enemy is reinforcing defensive lines in Vodyanoe and Pervomaisky.
In the southern direction without significant changes. The Russian Aerospace Forces continue to strike at the accumulation of equipment and manpower of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Positional battles are underway on the Ingulets River, where Ukrainian units are unsuccessfully trying to occupy a bridgehead for a possible offensive. However, so far they only bear huge losses in manpower and equipment.
And finally: At the conference “New Belarus” held in Vilnius, Svetlana Tikhanovskaya announced the creation of a “government in exile”. At the same time, she especially noted the creation of the “Ministry of Defense”.
The “department” was headed by a fugitive military pensioner, former brigade commander of the Airborne Forces Valery Sakhashchik. In his speech, he named as his "subordinates" the Nazis - mercenaries from Belarus, fighting on the side of the Kyiv regime. Well, modern weapons should be provided, of course, by the West.
In the context of the fact that the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has finally formed the opinion that attacking Kherson is pure suicide, and the West continues to demand a counteroffensive. The only way out for the Kyiv regime is to carry it out in the direction where no one is waiting. For example, to Belarus, which Kyiv also declared an “aggressor”. Moreover, the Belarusian troops are still much less afraid of the Armed Forces of Ukraine than the RF Armed Forces. Perhaps all these “governments in exile” and “ministries of defense” are started for this?
