Open warfare between Russia, America, UK in Ukraine, less than 1.5 sq klm of Bakhmut now held by Ukraine
Update: We are advised 🪖May 20, 2023. This afternoon, the city of Bakhmut/Artemovsk was completely liberated by Russian Wagner forces.
Heavy fighting against thousands of US and Polish mercs continues. The Biden administration has found a way for US soldiers to enter fray while bypassing legalities. The yanks are in the background managing the conflict via the Poles provide for the cannon fodder. Its open war with the Americans in the Ukraine. The heavy equipment is being operated by the Poles and the Checs.
RF soldiers now have better training, generally conducted by those that have seen the front. The Ukro’s tried to break through the line only to lose 530 men. Last week 120 American corpses were returned to the states, these were men of various ranks nothing below Sargent level. The RF is targeting command / control centres resulting in an estimated 800 dead and 120 wounded.
The RF missiles struck a headquarters where high-ranking officers were based in the Donbass region. Ukrainian generals are known to periodically visit the Donbass. Key military personnel Zaluzhny, Syrsky and Klintsevich are notably absent failing to attend NATO meetings, no public appearances for some time hence presumed dead. Ukraine denies their death’s. Wagner believes that General Tantsyura, was likely destroyed in a transport vehicle near Chasov Yar, denied by the Ukrainians.
The RF waited them out at one of their strong holds and hit them. Syrsky the commander of the defense of Bakhmut was liquidated by the Russian Air Force there are no official statements. Titarenko the chief adviser to the Zelensky Office was liquidated in the DPR region. He was taken out by an artillery strike in the Yar Clock region, where numerous high-ranking officers and several politicians of the Kiev regime were gathered. Nikolaev region 28.4.23 approximately 20 officers (higher ranks) were killed following a rocket strike including foreigners. No official comment, posting video or photographic materials has been outlawed by Zelensky.
The newest Russian weapon “glide bomb” is impacting the Ukrainian war and may force Kiev to reconsider its offensive as the bombs can bypass the Ukro’s air defences. The glide bombs are a nightmare problem for them. “FAB-500 carries 300 kg of TNT about five times more than a 152 mm projectile the glide bomb is cheap and plentiful. The planes do not need to enter the air defense coverage area.
Kiev estimates that the RF uses at least 20 FAB-500 glide bombs daily. Glidе bombs were used on the Ukrainian militant strongholds in Bakhmut and Chasov Yar. Wagner assault units took the so-called “Nest”, a complex of high-rise buildings turned into a citadel by the militants. Simultaneously, the RF launched strikes against Odessa, from where the drones that attacked Crimea were launched. Ukraine has trained 1000 drone operators. The FAB-500 glide bomb was used on the lower Dneiper (Attaman Island) where the Ukro’s attempted a crossing but didn’t get very far.
The Ukro’s are finding it extremely problematic to gather their forces for an offensive, as soon as they gather in numbers they are hit. The French have provided the Ukro’s with light armoured amphibious transport. A novel concept but the light armour is amenable to being easily pierced.
There are no more roads to Bakhmut, the Ukro’s are forced to supply the city through open fields that are under constant fire. The so-called ” Bakhmut meat grinder” turned into an ” Bakhmut furnace” on the night of May 8th. May 12th, the Ukro’s suffered one of the biggest losses since 2014, 1,725 men were killed.
Strikes on the 2nd Azov brigade on the southern flank and 2nd mechanised brigades and one motorised rifle battalion on the northern flank were stopped, the losses equate to one regiment (this from a NATO Officer). Russian air superiority is hard to overestimate once they push the Ukro’s into RF positions, they expose themselves to an artillery and airforce firing bag.
The “Constructor block” is de-nazified. The Ukro’s (18/05/23) lost their strongest defenable area the “Nest” it was completely de-nazified by Wagner. The Ukro’s currently have 2 reinforced areas remaining within the city “Domino” & “Airplane”. Wagner advanced 130m taking 28 high-rise buildings turned into fortresses in the fortified area “Nest” in Bakhmut, the enemy had 20 high-rise buildings. He noted that despite all the difficulties, Bakhmut will be taken in a matter of days.
Less than 1.5 klm2 of Bakhmut remain under Ukro control and shrinking rapidly. A large number of foreign mercs and others are trapped in the “Domino”: Australians, Poles, Britons, Swedes, Norwegians. They tried to flee through via open fields, but reversed course due to heavy artillery most of the Georgian mercs are dead. The remaining Ukro troops are actively defending their last stand. “Wagner”, uses large-calibre machine guns to work on targeted buildings, where enemy positions are well equipped on the first floors. The men use armour-piercing and incendiary cartridges, which are not just able to pierce the walls, but also set fire to the building.
16th May, RF forces eliminate over 695 Ukrainian militants in Donetsk region. Up to 150 Ukrainian soldiers killed South of Donetsk and Zaporozhye regions. RF artillery strikes a massive ammunition depot in Nikolaev, S. Ukraine. RF air defences intercept 9 HIMARS missiles, destroy 19 drones.
Multiple coordinated attacks are intended to prevent the Ukrainians from accumulating sufficient forces for an offensive, the intent is to create an acute shortage of everything everywhere. It is almost impossible to quickly restore supplies of equipment, weaponry and personnel under conditions of heavy dependence on weapons imports. Presumably the enemy is preparing its offensive against the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions.
By striking the rear, the RF will impact morale and psychological state while reducing their ability to replenish reserves. Additionally the Russian fleet has built up a naval presence in the Black Sea able to launch 28 Kalibr missiles daily.
Wagner chief Prigozhin notes that in the Ukro’s deliver pinpoint strikes if the line “breaks” is where they’ll send their reserves to ensure a further breakthrough the Ukro’s wish to occupy the tactical ridges. Wagner expects that the Ukro’s will launch their offensive at various points, likely in the north: Bryansk, Kursk, and Belgorod directions. Further Svyatovo-Kremennoe and Bakhmut directions. The main strike will focus on Zaporozhye.
16th May, an RF hypersonic Kinzhal destroyed a US multifunctional Patriot surface-to-air missile and radar station as well as 5 launchers in Kiev. The RF sent numerous decoys that triggered the Patriot. Once its location was identified the Kinzhal destroyed the Patriot System, 5 launchers and its operating team which the RF believes was 46 men. The Ukro’s fired the entire loadout of a MIM-104 Patriot battery (8 launchers, 4 missiles each).
About 6 minutes later there were a lot of flashes from AAA guns (possibly Gepards), then 3 large explosions hit the SAM site. 30 US Patriot air defense missiles costed at $4 million / unit for a total of $120 million, the launchers valued at $10 million US a piece.
Furthermore the stray patriot missiles detonated on Kiev’s infrastructure. Russia will continue to identify and destroy the Patriot air defense systems. The US is trying to save face by suggesting that the SAM was damaged, not destroyed. An assessment of the degree of damage is being conducted to determine repairability.
The UK has transferred “Storm Shadow” long-range cruise missiles with stealth capabilities, boasting a maximum range from 290-560km they are capable of flying at extremely low altitudes and bending around the terrain which exact type and quantity of the units delivered are not disclosed. This confirms the UK’s unprecedented level of involvement. This will enable the Ukro’s to strike any target in Crimea including the Crimean bridge and other Russian regions, including new territories. Russia’s MoD reports that within a 24 hour period, 7 Storm Shadow cruise missiles were intercepted by RF air defence.
On May 12th Storm Shadow missiles struck Lugansk they injured 6 children, the British should be pleased. Kiev assured the UK that the new weapons would be used only for defense and on the territory of Ukraine, and not for attacks on Russia. This is the next stage in the escalation of the Ukrainian conflict. Page 2/over
Here’s a list of the numerous Ukrainian Brigades and units that were systematically destroyed by Wagner PLC in Bakhmut.
lindesymonds…I don’t have an obscure reason, it is fact – Ukraine are bombing residential areas in Ukraine, i.e. where civilians live and have been doing so for 8 years. I didn’t say they are bombing their own military positions or bases…
“Hypothetically. They are never going to arrest Big Jew Putin – he has the green light from the UN to build Eurasia and he has now opened a second front in Sudan.”
The stupidity of the above statement by you is mind boggling.. Also the ICC will never arrest Putin because the charge is total BS. The ICC has lost all credibility in any case.
Sorry Ed, I missed that one! cheers.
Its in our story we published last nite. Ed
Latest news: – Bakhmut has fallen!.

@xyz47. What are you smoking?
Even though all the Big Jews and little Jew Volodymyr are pulling the levers of the Ukraine War for the integration Eurasia and the EUSSR nations / Soviet Union convergence – long planned and documented – war is still war. For some obscure reason, you find it believable that the Ukrainian military is bombing its own Ukrainian positions and base. I do not.
On the Putin / Belova indictment by the ICC for child trafficking, they don’t disclose evidence until the trial. If there is an indictment then they have evidence. Whether that evidence will hold up is actually what the trial would be about. Hypothetically. They are never going to arrest Big Jew Putin – he has the green light from the UN to build Eurasia and he has now opened a second front in Sudan.
The Durham Report is now released in the US and it looks like the Biden crime syndicate, Clinton, Obama, the FBI, DOJ, IC , Comey, FISA judges are all in.
The DNC is a Communist front. The entire cesspit is the Mos Eisley Spaceport.
Pass the Bud lite, Cheetohs and KFC wingdings.
Karen elliott… the link you attached has been taken down… What you say is pretty well right though.
Thanks Cairns News for another good round up by the Colonel. It seems incredible that the US/UK/EU are still supplying weapons that are daily going up in smoke… no wonder they are all going broke. The worst part is the loss of life that they are totally responsible for – this could have ended long ago. The US don’t care because they always conduct wars away from their own country however they are losing people in Ukraine and pretty soon they won’t be able to cover that up.
Great news re Bakhmut – and Viva Russia in their fight against evil and God Bless.
lindesymonds… Did those refugee Ukrainians also report that it was Ukraine bombing civilian areas on purpose – not Russia? Civilians in Ukraine have also reported this first hand via video to independent journalists on the ground in the bombed out areas.
I think you say sometimes just to gee people up..
Yuri’s mention of armour piercing incendiary cartridges shows that Russian house to house combat is much the same as in 1945.
In WWII, Russian assault troops used incendiary bullets to deliberately set a building on fire, – to flush out the resistance, – at which point, they immediately stormed the building with fire extinguishers!
Having put out the flames and secured the building, they would then move on to the next house, and the next street, etc.
Incendiary devices certainly have their merits.
the more NATO thug,s get wiped out the better . go RUSSIA.
The truth, which is about to become apparent to the entire world, is that the Yanks are poor fighters. Their Navy was the only arm that attracted distinction in WWII and it was superior technology that won the Gulf War, against partially armed peasants.
In Korea, Vietnam, Iraq, and Afghanistan, they were soft, panic easily, crack under strain, and are poorly disciplined. Sure, Hollywood disagrees with me, but I can live with that.
The world needs to witness a test of much-lauded American military superiority, and then see it collapse under attack from what are now battle-hardened Russians. This will expedite the collapse of the Fascist American Empire and precipitate the release of 60 nations from the shackles of American Imperialism and colonisation.
Now, don’t that sound like a 1950s Commo rant? Yet I am anti-Marxist, anti-Communist, anti-socialist, and anti-free market capitalism.
What I do support is Democratic Meritocracy, which means unfettered private enterprise, with exploitation prevented by community formulation of policy, and a safety net for the aged, infirm, and unemployed. But under the kind of economy we had until 1976, there was precious little unemployment and many age pensioners continued to work, but on reduced hours, there being no means test.
This was Australia from 1949 until 1976. Brainwashed sceptics should ask any Aussies over the age of 80 what it was like to live in the most egalitarian and prosperous nation on this planet.
Once we get rid of the US occupation forces, Australia can re-industrialise, re-nationalise essential services, and protect industry, workers and consumers with tariffs.
Considering this is how the dominoes line up, all I can say is “Go Russians, rid the world of the Pentagon”.

Russia is conducting a full scale invasion of Ukraine. So it would be interesting to know how many children – both Russian (in the disputed Oblasts) and Ukrainian children have died under this invasion. We will never know. The Ukrainians who are fleeing the Russian advance into neighbouring countries report many deaths among their families..
It is estimated it will cost Australian taxpayers $245 Billion to integrate Australian defence Forces into plans for the defence of the USA…
AUKUS may turn out to be the largest financial swindle perpetuated by the United States and the United kingdom against Australia and other Asia Pacific countries:
Two big concerns: depleted uranium and mercenaries being done in en masse.
If you are a merc you’d have to be mad , to a kamikaze, to go to Ukraine.
London calling? Looks like that’s what the Brits are asking for?
A heavily Muslim-stacked British population might actually have to fight for something then?
