Army of Ukraine turns Kamikaze: Update from the frontlines – Kherson

By Lone Wolf

Russia’s ongoing Security Military Operation (SMO) in Ukraine, six months later, has turned into a battlefield in many fronts inside and outside Ukraine.

Battlefield Ukraine is burning in Kherson, Donetsk, Kharkiv, Energodar, Slavyansk/Kramatorsk, Seversk, Izyum, and more, each of these fronts subdivided in even smaller combat fields.

The Kherson front became active after Ukraine finally launched the so much announced “counter offensive,” crossing the Inhulets river on five points in an easterly direction. They were repulsed on four of those, the Russians “retreated” in the area Andriivka/Lozove, allowing a Ukrainian penetration they have exploited to the max.

As of yesterday, 09/03, Ukrainian troops were caught in a fire bag, exactly in the area they were allowed to penetrate, from south of Andriivka, to the north of Lozove up to the Plotnitske tract, and southeast to Kostromka, including the village of Sukhy Stavok.

Today, 09/04, maps show the fire bag divided into three pockets, the Andriivka/Lozove/Plotnitske tract expanded south to Blahodativka and Ternivka, pushing the penetration back to the left bank of the river, and two other pockets around Sukhy Stavok and Kostromka each, isolating those villages.

Ukrainian troops are getting pounded with heavy weapons, missiles, artillery, and air bombing, the latter with the added “perk” Russia authorized use of FAB-500 bombs, which

By the way, according to the losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. For sure, Kiev does not take into account those who were swept away by our bomber aircraft in 2 days in the “kishka” in the area of the Sukhoi Stavki n/a. Firstly, it is extremely difficult to get the dead, and secondly, it is difficult to determine whose head is here and whose ass is there. Several tons of FAB-500s dropped right on the head make identification and burial extremely difficult.” (Military Chronicle via Older than Edda)

North of Andriivka/Lozove, along the line Vysokopillya/ Arkhanhel’s’ke/ Bila Krynytsya, Ukraine forces continue to commit reserves despite the staggering number of casualties. Ukrainians hoisted a flag in Vysokopillya, good for PR purposes, however temporary that might be, as all these villages and towns are being reduced to rubble by FAB-500 and artillery. Ukrainians are “freeing” villages that were not occupied, on the right bank of the Inhulets river. Allied forces stopped their expansion along the left bank of the river, a natural boundary.

Units of the Ukrainian Armed Forces entered the village of Bezymennoye to the west of Karlomarksovsky, which was never captured. Russian Su-34 bombers dropped almost two dozen tons of FAB-500 bombs on the positions of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in Bezymennoye. The enemy’s manpower, equipment, and tiny ghost village all ceased to exist. (Military Chronicle via Rybar)

The pattern of these penetrations has been Ukraine’s willingness to sacrifice thousands of soldiers in an attempt to show the Collective West their determination to recover lost territories…and to get their next tranche. Ukraine’s governing elite are prisoners of their own deception, their military campaigns are all for show, Allied forces are not fighting for territory per se, but for the decapitation of Ukraine’s military capabilities, to which the Ukrainians are greatly contributing.

(Next, DONETSK)

Thanks Lone Wolf. I must admit that normally I look at the Ukraine sit reps and don’t get much out of them – too much info to take in. I like your approach of reporting on a single front – makes it much more understandable. So I’ll be looking for… Read more »

Reading the channels today, the Ukrainian push on Kherson (and more) is continuing here and there. Some analysts and observers talk about 5 waves. They cannot do anything, they are not changing the outcome of the battle, they are just being slaughtered, but yet they throw soldiers into the front.… Read more »

Well done Lone Wolf.I want to add a thought mercouris indirectly raised, and which I was just discussing w/ Mr P.There may be a method to their madness, if we always keep in mind two simple objectives of the Anglo-Zionists: (1) to maintain the Ukraine as an anti-Russia enemy bastion… Read more »

Thanks, AHH, glad to see you around. You’re always connecting dots when others don’t see dots to connect. These were special forces from Transcarpathia, Ukraine’s tactic has been to send first waves of teroborona, elite echelons follow. It was different this time, they were the first wave, after all, they… Read more »

Thanks Lone Wolf. I am not ready. Much of what you see is nervous energy.. isn’t is swarmy the slow slide into ww3? Driving us all craaazy. Speeding typing and stream of consciousness is not enough. I respect potential readers too much. Am a perfectionist with formal writing.. “If It… Read more »

Brian Berletic on Kherson Direction Ukraine is throwing everything it has left at Russian forces around Kherson, struggling to maintain meager gains.The problem is, they picked Kherson because it’s perceived as among the “easiest” areas to attack along Russian lines and they’ve still lost 1,000s.Short of shocking Russian forces out… Read more »

Andrei Martyanov has a rant up on all the commentators and channels. I have a few comments in good spirits. One of the bugbears that he has, is that the commentator maps sometimes do not show scale. He is specifically talking about Rybar in this sense.I have never liked Rybar… Read more »

Thanks Lone Wolf,I think I see where this engineered slaughter is going. First, all the the [Russian] Ukrainian men are rounded up sent to the front with Azov pointing guns at their backs. Then starting October 1, the Russian-Ukrainian women (maybe the widows!) and female relatives . After that, maybe… Read more »

“A clever bit of ethnic cleansing.”  Indeed! You hit the mark.  I am reminded that the Anglo-Zionists want to erase ALL slavs, not just Russians. And the black sea coast of the Ukraine once being part of their ancient Khazaria, and host to the most fertile soil on earth, they… Read more »
