Russian Ministry Of Defense Confirms Capture Of Stepovoe, Reveals Ukrainian Losses (Video)

File image.

The Tsentr Group of Forces had liberated the settlement of Petrovskoye, also known as Stepovoe, from Kiev forces, the Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed on February 28.

The settlement is located right to the northwest of the strategic city of Avdeevka in the Donetsk direction, which was captured by Russian troops earlier this month.

In its daily briefing, the ministry said that Tsentr Group of Forces liberated Petrovskoye, took more advantageous lines, and repelled eleven counter-attacks by Kiev forces close to the settlement of Leninskoye, Novgorodskoye, Novobakhmutovka, Tonenkoye, Orlovka and Pervomayskoye in the same direction.

Ukrainian losses in this direction amounted to 165 troops, four tanks, two American-made Bradley infantry fighting vehicles, one American-made M113 armored personnel carrier and five motor vehicles, according to the ministry.

The ministry also noted that three D-20 towed howitzers, five D-30 towed howitzers, one Msta-B towed howitzer and one Gvozdika self-propelled howitzer were destroyed in the same direction by counter-battery fire.

Russian troops first stormed Stepovoe on February 26. The first American-made M1A1 SA Abrams main battle tank of Kiev forces was destroyed near the settlement. On February 27, video footage posted on social media showed a soldier from the Tsentr Group of Forces raising the banner of his unit over Stepovoe.

The capture of Stepovoe will allow Russian troops to attack the settlement of Berdychi, a stronghold of Kiev forces. Attacks on the settlements of Orlivka and Tonenke are already underway, according to recent reports. Kiev forces are said to be retreating from some of their positions.

Berdychi, Orlivka, Tonenke and the nearby settlement of Semenovka are considered the second line of defense of Kiev forces to the northwest and west of Avdeevka. It is unclear yet if Ukraine had prepared any defenses behind the four settlements.

Overall, Kiev forces appear to be facing a very difficult situation in the Donetsk direction. The Kiev regime’s decision to sacrifice thousands of troops and hundreds of pieces of equipment in Avdeevka for propaganda purposes have apparently caused irreparable damage in this direction.

“repelled 11 counter attacks” when are these clowns going to learn? my god. you’re losing so you go and attack a place you just lost. if you want to die and gain nothing, point the gun at your cerebellum and pull the trigger instead of getting shot up and maimed. wtf. honestly, if somebody ordered me to do that, i would shoot them in the face or leave a grenade for their lunch.

probably cause ukros are on american payroll, ukros love the dollar 💵 to much.

hgg the second

and how the nazis are going to spend the payroll with a bullet in the head

No love for 1776!

they’re paying with their lives for being sellouts to the anglos

Rommel

the fuck is wrong with you people? i realize the term “nazi” is supposed to be derogatory, but there are no nazis in ukraine!

no self respecting nazi would ever follow a gay, crossdressing hebrew..ever!

the brigade can call themselves whatever they want, but they sure as hell arent nazi’s!!

what’s next? kkk members following the orders from a negro?

Rommel

sadly, they are just following the orders of their hebrew master.

the longer zelensky can bullshit and prolong the war and the soldier’s inevitable death’s the more welfare he gets from the west.

if there were any authentic nazi’s in ukraine, zelensky would’ve already been converted to a lampshade.

now its the momentum for russia in the east and south to push in all reserves and go all in with the air campaign, missiles and artillery, because than ukros can not build up any serious new defense lines as fast as russian troops push forward.

raf may be saving that as a contingency in case nato directly gets involved.

Rommel

good luck with the air campaign. the majority of the battlegrounds in ukraine are open fields.

there is no reason in hell the russians shouldn’t have already laid waste on the ukranian forces with their air superiority.

hell, even the iraqis took out entire divisions of isis armor with their air force.

what is zelensky doing with the serbian president vucic, i saw them meeting what possible agenda could they have, like, what zelensky wants kosovo to be recognized, or maybe wants some weapons from serbia, or maybe serbia to hit russia with some sanctions i mean what is the purpose of such stupid meeting.

3 days war now lasted more than two years.. . but what really has changed is how russia lost lucrative european energy markets. has russia become north korea 2.0?
