      svatove's supply rail goes through a lot of newly-ukrainian-controlled land. starobilsk can still get supplied from the rail junction at luhansk, there's a line that goes north to starobilsk. I guess they're leaving because there's absolutely no russian troops to speak of between them and the ukrainian forces at lyman and kupyansk, and it's only a few hours tank drive through uncontested territory should the ukrainians decide to make a move.

      gee i dont know that sounds optimistic but then again look at this offensive

      the fact the russians are retreating so far back means these positions had barely any defenders, every russian in Kharkov lost contact with command after the rout started, in the next couple of days they will try to reach russia or russian controlled territory, or will be captured by Ukis

      that being said, russia cannot count on those troops, so they took a look at the map, saw what they had to defend, check the amount of troops they had and concluded "yeah thats not gonna happen", they are probably retreating back to february 24th positions since those probably have some defensive positions they can use

      and since the donetsk front has barely moved, it shouldnt exposed that area too much

      it will be an incredibly humiliating defeat if the Ukis reach Severodonetsk and Lysychansk tough

                Doubtful. The problem with these Russian soldiers is none of them have any initiative or leadership training. That's the point of not having empowered NCO's, they can't mutiny if their entire existence is being told to assault a position and then bravely dying in the attempt. That's also why the northern front broke so quickly. Command got captured or killed, and all of the soldiers immediately noped.

                Kherson is too important. Same with Mariupol. Crimea is Russia's true objective, they want permanent access to the Black Sea. The whole war hinges on that front. You could see another retreat, but it will require eliminating Russian leadership.

                Strelkov talked about Mariupol iirc. That's also what the Russian propagandists are sperging out about currently. I have not heard of anyone saying that Ukies are gunning for Melitopol yet, but it seems only logical.

                look at this fucking shit
                what you are seeing in pic rel is the situation of the south
                you see those icons to the west of donetsk city? thats ukrainian 2 motorized battalions, 1 tank battalion and one mechanized battalion, as well as 2 jager brigades and defensive units
                and they are up against one russian motorized brigade and one marine battalion, latter of whom fought in mariupol meat grinder, so it is safe to assume that these units lack manpower
                tl;dr this is basically Balakleya 2.0

                They aren't exactly expending major resources in Kharkiv now, though. It's not like that front is any kind of meat grinder or any form of attritional warfare, so it wouldn't really be "stretching" much if they're not exactly expending resources there

                That region is basically an open steppe.

                Crimea is actually indefensible from the russian standpoint.

                Once they recapture all of their other territories they can blow the bridge and effectively blockade the peninsula (without a navy, just using missles). They can cut their water easily too. At this point the russian military will be too buckbroken to do anything about it and they will step to the negotiating table without a single ukrainian troop stepping foot on the peninsula.

                Is there any actual precedent for a missile blockade? Usually what you do is intercept any merchant vessel with a fleet vessel and force them to change course, or at least lay mines. It's much more likely someone's going to call your bluff if you just threaten to launch the missiles rather than putting a cruiser in their face.

              I think Ukranians know pretty well that entire frontline is defended with dogshit. Only the "2nd" line of VDV and other regular RF has been the deterrent. Pretty sure those have been shuffled around quite a bit by now. Quicker air response there though so they would need more SEAD and bring AA closer to that front. Or a shitload of stingers.

            Makes sense i got a feeling by next Friday they will have at least start moving into that territory.

If they can open up and area to get infantry and heavy armor i can see them reaching the sea very easily.

              I think this the biggest blow. Ukranians had not entertained the thought of attacking instead sitting idle while artillery rains down 24/7. Glowmorons had to show them proof of concept that 1,000 well trained, well equipped motivated men moving fast do more damage and provide better defense through offense than 5000 deeply entrenched gays. Once you rip a hole they expect you to take that captured "territory" and start digging in but instead you haul ass to the next spot and fuck shit up and keep moving. A few hundred small teams doing that in a general localized area are impossible to defend against with artillery and if spread out enough are a nightmare for air support too if they all have MANPADS. Both Ukranians and Russians aren't used to that style at all. Wagner is the only group that works that way and it's no surprise they are the only ones who have gotten gains.

            I've been thinking this for quite awhile. What's stopping the Ukies from blitzing melitopol or Mariupol and cutting off most of the supplies to the west? The only thing the Ukies would have to do then is destroy the Crimean bridge and that would cut off the entirety of Crimea, Kherson, and everything west of the Ukies lines.

          This, it may not look like it, but this is an incredibly strategic piece of land if ukraine gets a hold of it. Just like Kherson and Izyum, russian forces would be pushed back against a large body of water (the black sea here), and eventually can be cut in half.
          Not only would they cut off supply of the south from the Donbas, and vice versa (the former is more significant), but they would have free range to strike the Russian navy in the Azov Sea.
          Harpoon ASHM's have a rated range of 140km, and that's just enough to reach the northern end of Crimea where the Kerch bridge is. Any Russian warships in the Azov would be in grave danger (which is where many escaped after Snake Island), so the remaining would have to go to south-east Crimea to be safe.
          The supply cut from the Donbas would also put a severe strain of supply routes going through Crimea, there's very few from Crimea, and anything coming from Crimea would have to pass through the Kerch bridge.
          I would genuinely be surprised if Ukraine doesn't attack it.

              Doubtful. The problem with these Russian soldiers is none of them have any initiative or leadership training. That's the point of not having empowered NCO's, they can't mutiny if their entire existence is being told to assault a position and then bravely dying in the attempt. That's also why the northern front broke so quickly. Command got captured or killed, and all of the soldiers immediately noped.

              Kherson is too important. Same with Mariupol. Crimea is Russia's true objective, they want permanent access to the Black Sea. The whole war hinges on that front. You could see another retreat, but it will require eliminating Russian leadership.

                Trust me, it's the most important front in the entire war. If Ukraine captures Crimea, it's ogre.

                I never understood this autism. Russia does have permanent access to the Blacl Sea. I've been to Novorossiysk, Anapa, Sochi, etc many time. Okay I'll grang Anapa and Sochi are no place that could handle large naval force but Novorossiysk absolutely can and, in fact, alteady does. You could have based the entire Black Sea Fleet (pre-Russia getting half of it sunk) easily with just a little dredging and development.

      Stalled and worked as an unintentional feint for Kharkov. There have also been reports about Russian line adjustments there, basically they've retreated a bit closer to Kherson to stay in range of their artillery from the southern side of the river.

      In siege mode, Russia is cut off but Ukraine doesn't want to make a costly attack into an urban strong point.

      The Ukrainians are still advancing and taking back settlements but at a much slower pace than Kharkiv. Last I've heard, they're around 15km from the Kherson city limits on the west side, but haven't made it quite as far in their northern and eastern advance

        They're going to advance until they're just outside the range of a MSTA battery on the far side of the Dniper, then settle in for a winter siege. Russia will have to enact Operation Discount Dunkirk on the Dniper during the winter, which won't get cold enough to freeze the river but will get cold enough to kill you if you fall in :^)

            Current civillian estimate is more than 22 000 dead in mariupol, 4k of those are confirmed and presumably identified. There will be far more atrocities and mass Graves uncovered as Russians withdraw elsewhere also - Bucha is a good indication of the sort of shit well be hearing about over the next couple of months. Atrocities and mass death of civillians will not prompt nato to intervene against a nuclear power, will guarantee a steady flow of weaponry, intel, and economic support for Ukraine though.

              Dude, The US's housing market affected the entire world. Look into the Evergrande company failing. when one domino in China fails the entire row falls because of how the CCP runs things there. It's hard to explain, but when the liquidity crisis in China started their real estate market was beginning to die because they told their citizens to buy 2-3 homes each. Here's the thing, they PRESOLD the houses, like sold them before they were completed. When Covid hit there was no one to pay for those homes, so they stopped working on them. Now those people who bought the houses are refusing to pay their mortgages. it's getting bad over there to the point of people doing bank runs and banks only allowing $150 withdrawls per day.

              Also don't forget the retarded Zero covid policy that's killing western manufacturing interest in China.

Country is ridden with all kinds of cultural, social, environmental, demographic, politic and just economic problems to extend that firstworlders would consider apocalyptic, and chinks spend more money on covering it up from outside world than on fixing. Like, third part of their gdp is just overblown housing market, they just endlessly build new buildings where no one lives and which are self collapse in about 2-3 years on average, by building a lot of useless stuff they both unnecessary destroy nature and couse environmental pollution that kills wildelife in industrial quantities and significantly shortens lifespan of their citizens, increased health problems mean that that their demographic collapse, from not having nearly enough replacement population, would come in power only faster and stronger, etc. etc. etc.

    Crimea is what can force Putin onto a negotiating table, but Ukraine cannot truly threaten it until they push and secure as deep into the Eastern Front and Kherson as possible.

    if Ukraine can truly prove they can hold their recaptured territory and turn their attention to Crimea, it’s over like other anons said. Russian forces in their current state have very few options in terms of holding onto Crimea if the aforementioned happens.

    But all of that is in the air right now and it won’t be clear that it’s probably until after Winter most likely.

              Losing your composure over a whore-turned-empress from 1500 years ago makes you one.

                Stating the obvious is "losing your composure" now? White-knighting for some diseased cunt from 1500 years ago on the other hand ...

                Yes, that is what you have been engaging in these past couple of posts. Nice of you to admit as much. Maybe there is hope for you yet.

      Ronald Reagan had that reputation before he got into politics. He didn't become president as quickly as Zelensky but the fact remains. He also defeated Russia in the Cold War.

        LOL, the Pope was a bigger influence over the Soviet Union falling apart more than Reagan tanking the economy and setting up the shit show America is dealing with today.

    I mean don't get too excited bros, the russian oligarchs have invested a lot in Crimea and I doubt very much they'll allow it to be taken like that, anyway it's way too early to think about it

    Wouldn't the high-level move be for Ukraine to continue pushing into the Luhansk and Donetsk puppet "republics" pulling the rug out from under the Putin and the supposed justification for the war post-Kyiv withdrawal?

    If Russia doesn't have the East, Kherson and the South generally would be in purgatory. If they were no longer a land bridge to any Russian controlled territory the will to hold them might evaporate.

      yes, but eventually they'll have to overrun the Line of Contact, which has a trench system.

    This is just Russians being Russian: pay people to fight for you, abandon them when the situation is not in your favour anymore. Happened in the past, will happen again.

    Is 100% not a front because there is a huge line of cars trying to flee from Luganda to Russia. People know what's coming
