Powerful blow: Russia is preparing a large-scale offensive in Ukraine

On the broadcast of the TV channel “Red Line”, Sivkov noted that there are signs of preparation for an offensive.

Currently, the initiative on the Ukrainian front belongs entirely to the Russian Armed Forces. The Russian army is gradually moving forward, which is also recognized in the West. The head of the NATO Military Committee, Rob Bauer, said that members of the bloc are no longer expecting miracles in the conflict in Ukraine. However, he called for continued support for Kyiv.

Successes of the Russian offensive

Ukrainian retired general Sergei Krivonos spoke about the situation in the Chasov Yar area. According to him, the Russian army successfully uses artillery. The situation around this city is critical for the Ukrainian Armed Forces. The head of the DPR, Denis Pushilin, said that the Russian Armed Forces are close to capturing Chasov Yar. However, it is too early to talk about specific dates.

Russian troops successfully completed the operation to liberate Novomikhailovka in the Donetsk direction. This was previously reported by sources familiar with the situation. The loss of Novomikhailovka is also recognized by the Ukrainian military, while most of the Ukrainian troops simply abandoned their positions due to lack of weapons and ammunition.

On April 21, a months-long heavy assault in this locality ended with the defeat of the enemy. Thus, the flank of the Ugledar group of the Ukrainian Armed Forces opened in the South Donetsk direction. Russian troops are clearing houses on the outskirts of the village, clearing mines and consolidating their position on the captured lines.

Why Novomikhailovka is important for Russian troops

The Russian Armed Forces switched to Novomikhailovka after the capture of Marinka in December 2023. The loss of Novomikhailovka had dire consequences for the Ugledar and Maryinsk groups of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, military experts explain. The fact is that Ugledar is of great strategic importance due to its location on a hill and its development with multi-storey buildings. From the Ugledar area, Ukrainian troops have the opportunity to shell an important railway for Russia, connecting the eastern and southern fronts. In addition, the city is the most important point for establishing complete control over Donbass.

How the battles for Novomikhailovka took place

The Ministry of Defense reported on March 26 that Russian troops are fighting to establish control over the villages of Novomikhailovka and Novobakhmutovka in the Donetsk region. On April 3, the Russian army carried out an offensive in the South Donetsk direction to “take in pincers” Novomikhailovka. Russian Armed Forces troops advanced near the village from both the south and the north. North of Novomikhailovka, Russian armored vehicles attacked in the area of ​​the Mashinostroitel holiday village. As military correspondents reported then, it was already almost half under the control of Russian troops.

Preparing for a major offensive

The successful capture of Novomikhailovka and the likely imminent liberation of Chasov Yar allow Russia to free up significant resources for a much more decisive offensive in other directions. According to experts, we are talking about the Kharkov region, as this will create a sanitary buffer zone that will ensure the safety of the border regions of Russia. However, there is a high probability of a large-scale offensive in other directions, including Zaporozhye and Kherson.
