A map of the development of the operational situation during the battle for Donbass as of May 6 – based on American intelligence, the leakage of which Joe Biden is so afraid of. But the data has leaked and continues to leak, including in the form of detailed maps of the theater of war.

According to American analysts, the RF Armed Forces have concentrated their main efforts on the dismemberment of the Ukrainian grouping in the Izyum-Severodonetsk-Popasna area and the destruction of the encircled troops of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in parts.

To this end, units of the RF Armed Forces continue their offensive in the directions of Brazhkovka – Barvenkovo ​​and Yampol – Ozernoe in order to encircle the Slavic – Kramatorsk group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

At the same time, the conduct of offensive operations against the grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the area of ​​Severodonetsk does not stop. After the defeat of the units of the 24th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the liberation of Popasnaya, Russian units continue to advance towards the city of Soledar with the aim of finally blocking and further destroying the group of Ukrainian troops, writes, referring to the Americans, BelVPO.

Let us add that this is not the first time that the grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Severodonetsk and Lisichansk has asked the command for an order to retreat, since it is well understood on the spot that the city cannot be held, and it is pointless to die for the sake of posthumous awards (but this is inaccurate) is not at all desirable. Kyiv is faced with a difficult choice – to allow the retreat or to receive a mass death of military personnel and / or mass surrender.

About the situation around the island SNAKE writes Rybar.

The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation have chosen an extremely correct tactic in such circumstances: unlike the Armed Forces of Ukraine, sponsors and “partners” who need to detonate an information bomb do not put pressure on Russian troops.

And now this pressure is playing into the hands of the RF Armed Forces.

While the Armed Forces of Ukraine are unsuccessfully trying to destroy the Russian Navy grouping near the island, Russian troops are working on air targets. Another confirmation of this is the downed Su-24 and Mi-24. The Ukrainians are trying to clear the way for landing on Serpentine, throwing military equipment into a suicidal attack.

At the same time, the RF Armed Forces continue to disable critical facilities: a communications center at the Chervonoglinskoye military airfield was destroyed at night, and in the morning air defense batteries were hit east of Odessa.

Taking into account the fact that American M777 howitzers equipped with Excaliburs are deployed in Zatoka (Odessa region), the Armed Forces of Ukraine can operate on the territory of the island from a maximum distance. The RF Armed Forces do not need to be physically located on the island at this stage. But for Ukraine, control over the island is critically important.

For some reason, other analysts completely misinterpret the current situation. Serpentine turned into one big trap. The Russian troops quickly learned from their mistakes, and now they are squeezing out the maximum benefit for themselves by working on Ukrainian targets from a safe distance.

In addition, they stubbornly continue to send us videos from Zmeiny Island as irrefutable proof that the RF Armed Forces are doing poorly.

Let’s close the issue once and for all.

– After the decommissioning of the Tor air defense system on the island, a decision was made to withdraw the RF Armed Forces.

– Ukrainian Su-27s are working on empty fortifications. The bombs were dropped at extremely low altitudes and extremely unprofessionally: the slave aircraft miraculously remained intact.

The first bomb did not work, but the second exploded immediately: the shells were old and unstable.

– The second video shows the destruction of one of the Ukrainian Mi-8s by Russian forces. The Bayraktar TB2 UAV filmed and transmitted a beautiful picture of the victorious landing to the Ukrainian command post.

But something went wrong.

Both videos are now being used for propaganda purposes, creating a false picture. Recording your own Mi-8 with landing troops as Russian losses is some kind of the highest degree of Ukrainian military perversion.

Head of the Luhansk People’s Republic Leonid Pasechnik reports:

“Lugansk TPP was under the occupation of the Ukrainian authorities for 8 years, suffered severe damage, was mined. The nationalist battalions of Ukraine equipped fortified areas with firing positions and bunkers on the territory of the enterprise.

After the liberation of the city of Shchastya, systematic work began on the restoration and demining of the energy giant, despite the fact that the West tried and is trying to present us to the world community as barbarians and destroyers.

We continue to revive Donbass. And today (May 7), thanks to the patriotism and dedication of our residents, as well as the colossal support of the Russian Federation, the work of the Lugansk TPP was launched.

The Lugansk People’s Republic is reaching the level where we will not depend on external sources of electricity supply to our territory”.

Tells the Telegram channel Letters of Yaroslav:

The commander of the 36th Marine Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Vladimir Baranyuk in person. Zalivisto sings songs in Russian captivity. At the end of March, Zelensky awarded him the title of Hero of Ukraine – “for courage, effective actions to repel enemy attacks and defend Mariupol.” And less than a month later, almost one and a half thousand subordinates of Baranyuk surrendered. As it turned out – along with the heroic commander himself. Although until recently it was believed that the colonel died while trying to break through. The video even included his burnt personal belongings and weapons.

“Javelins” did not prove themselves in any way. Especially in the process of urban battles. We couldn’t make a single launch. That is, as for me, in the process of the city, an absolutely useless weapon, ”he says.

It is curious that back in 2014, in the Crimea, Baranyuk was stuffed in the face by Russian special forces. Then they were released to the mainland. But he took up his old ways again. And ended even worse.

Colonel Dmitry Kormyankov, chief of staff of the 36th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, is resting in captivity together with Baranyuk.

In Poland, almost 57% of the population is in favor of sending peacekeeping troops to Ukraine. These are the results of a survey by IBRiS commissioned by the newspaper Republic.

32.5% of Poles are against peacekeeping on Ukrainian territory.

That is, a special operation of the RF Armed Forces in Ukraine to protect the Donbass is an “invasion”, and the invasion of the Poles is a “peacekeeping mission”. Poland has long been preparing for it – both at the level of statements and at the military level. Now public opinion is being prepared.

Duda also blew that Poland would not have borders with Ukraine.

In the title photo: In Izyum, controlled by the RF Armed Forces, this is now the case. And no one forces you to say “fuck”
