Military Overview: Russian Army Took Control Of Vast Border Areas In Kharkiv Region

Click to see full-size image

The night of May 10, 2024, was marked by a sharp escalation on the Russian-Ukrainian border. Apparently, the Russian army launched offensive in the new direction, in the Kharkiv region.

Zelensky officially  announced the beginning of the Russian offensive in the Kharkiv region, saying that although the Armed Forces of Ukraine were waiting for such attacks, they do not know what reserves the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are ready to use in this direction. Ukrainian military sources acknowledge the loss of large territories. Ukrainian servicemen complain that despite the hysteria of Kiev, which shouted about the upcoming Russian offensive in the Kharkiv region, the AFU units could not contain the onslaught on the border.

On the evening of May 10, the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation liberated at least four border villages and more than 40 square kilometers of territory in the north of the Kharkiv region. Both Russian and Ukrainian sources confirm Russian control in the villages of Strelechye, Krasnoe, Pilnaya and Borisovka. The mop up operations with the support of artillery and aviation are ongoing in the captured areas.

 

 

In the early morning, Russian forces began a massive bombardment of military positions and various facilities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the border areas. The Ukrainian military targets were pounded by Russian artillery, strikes of the Iskander missiles and airstrikes by the Russian Aerospace Forces, which have not subsided all day.

The Russian military is conducting devastating shelling with the aim of massively destroying the infrastructure and reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to ensure the further advance of Russian troops. Russian pinpoint strikes are destroying bridges and crossings over local rivers in order to limit the movement and supply of military equipment and logistical resources of the Ukrainian forces.

 

 

The satellite imagery confirm the destruction of the bridge over the Seversky Donets at the Old Saltovka dam in the Kharkiv region. This bridge was blown up during the retreat of the Russian Armed Forces back in 2022, but the Ukrainian military restored the strategically important facility and actively used it to transport military personnel and heavy weapons. Destruction of the bridge disrupts the logistics of the Ukrainian army in this direction.

 

 

A video shot by a Russian reconnaissance drone also confirms that a pinpoint Russian airstrike destroyed a bridge over the Volchya River near the village of Zybino.

 

 

The footage confirmed the first defeat of the FrankenSAM air defense system, which is the Buk complex, adapted for launching RIM-7 Sea Sparrow and AIM-9 Sidewinder missiles of the US production, near the village of Cherkasskaya Lozovaya, Kharkiv region. Ukrainian troops for the first time used the Frankencam hybrid air defense system, which consists of elements of Soviet and Western weapons in early 2024.

 

 

Battles are ongoing in the areas of the settlements of Gatyshche, Borisovka, Goptovka, Krasnoe, Pylne, Zelenoe, Strelechye, Kudiyevka, where Russian forces in small groups conduct reconnaissance by combat.

According to Ukrainian military sources, up to 4-5 battalions of the Russian Armed Forces are operating on a front line 10 km wide and 3 km deep. Despite the fact that small forces are involved, the Russian army has significant reserves of the North group for their entry into battle. Most likely, they will be put into battle in the sector of the front where the advanced groups will be able to break through the main line of Ukrainian defense.

In their turn, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are sending reserve units to strengthen the defense in the Kharkiv region. Strengthening is necessary in view of the ongoing losses. The first servicemen of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were captured in the Kharkov direction :

There are no active assaults and the advance of Russian units to a great depth yet. At the moment, Russian forces continue to inflict massive fire damage, followed by further assault operations.

It is quite possible that this operation may become the first in a series of strikes aimed at creating the buffer zone that prevents shelling of the Russian borderlands, including Bryansk, Belgorod and Kursk regions. Occupation of the border areas will certainly reduce the ability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to shell the border areas of the Russian Federation. The Ukrainian military is forced to transfer units from other directions, where Kiev is already rapidly losing control of one stronghold after another.

surely these stories are false! the russians were defeated at kiev in 2022. all their armour was destroyed, they were reduced to using conscripts and prisoners who wouldn’t fight, weren’t fed, and all were either killed or surrendered to the rampant ukrainian armed forces. my understanding is that the russians were reduced to using museum pieces to fight. javelins, and bayraktars and abrams and leopards just proved too much for the russians.

yep, together with the claims russia was running out of missiles, ammo, troops, weapons, friends, etcetera. all bullshit. the bear is still going strong

of course it’s sarcasm. either that or it’s lloyd austin using clyde’s name.

1 million dead ukrainians, 3 million wounded and crippled, 10 million refugees, a crumbling economy and demography.. volodymyr zelenskyy and olena zelenska are so much, much worse than benito mussolini and claretta petacci. ukraine will cease to exist if zelenskyy and co. continue to be unconditional puppets to nato like mussolini was to hitler. i wouldn’t be surprised if ukrainian partisans get rid of him soon after may 21st. slava ukraini

the ukronazis have this thing with viking lore, so it’d make sense to use the blood eagle on them.

too bloody. hanging would be appropriate, though need to lift the moratorium for death penalty.

no way, berlin’s fate is to be nuked, if the war starts. warsaw’s too. they have nothing to give to russia, except troubles, so nobody will take and feed them. poland will be covered with glass – the result of extra-high temperatures when sand melts into glass. romania too, because there are too many yanks. too bad, i have sympathies towards polish people, closest relatives among other ethnic groups, even serbian brothers are not so close by dna.

by the way, half of pribaltica was purchased from sweden in 1721. estland and livland with riga, price – 2 million rubles in silver coins (talers). 52-gun battleship “poltava” (entered in service in 1712) cost 35 thousand rubles. 2 mln ~ 57 such ships, enough to build whole fleet.

as well as their synthetic pseudo-language spoils russian language, this is one of the reasons to annihilate ukrainism, even if it wasn’t form of nazism.

there is a cartel video where they bound a dude to a chair. they pull his head back and slit his throat just far enough to open his windpipe, then they let the blood slowly enter his windpipe, so he drowns to death by his own blood. that kind of slow death is what these people deserve.

yea that’s brutal. ‘id like to see them executed in an even more gruesome manner. one of which done by a certain group of pagans. rip open their chest and remove lungs from ribcage. from a different group of pagans across the ocean would do to cannibals – burn their hearts to ash in a fire after their dead for good measure, that’s after they’ve been cut up, bludgeoned, shot.

well, they’re all liars, so we should put them all into a reality show survivor island prison gulag, that starts off with them on the deck of a ship, 100 meters off shore. light their pants on fire to make them jump off the ship into the water, then sail off, while the bitches swin ashore… if they make it, the fun awaits on the island, where ukronazis cannibals are also banished. pass the popcorn and a slice of khinzal pizza, binge watch the live stream.

putin should learn from russian defeat in kiev in 2022.usa,british and france special forces are attackin all russian oil reservs and depots.ukraine does not have satelites and coordination systems.jsesus came and died and fly back to heaven thereis no peace on earth putin should stop dreaming of peacefull surrender.
