Blackout in the Ukrainian ED: Russia bombed NATO-Ukraine data exchange nodes – 200 Polish soldiers dead in Kharkiv!

Heavy losses to the Foreign Legion - Convoys bombed

In surgical precision strikes with devastating results, the Russian Armed Forces proceeded by bombing operational hubs of data exchange between the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the NATO command.

This event caused a blackout between the Ukrainian units operating along the front line, NATO and the Ukrainian GEETHA.

In addition:

-Russia bombed Ukraine's military command and control system, as well as energy facilities connected to it.

-Interrupted rail transport of Ukrainian Armed Forces reserves with the Russian Air Force bombing troop concentrations and Ukrainian armored trains.

The Poles recorded heavy losses in Kharkiv. During the night, temporary gathering places of Polish soldiers in Kharkiv were hit with more than 200 dead.

Finally, Foreign Legion training camps were hit with dozens of dead mercenaries and material and troop gathering areas.

The bombing took place in the region of Kramatorsk and Slavyansk. There the Armed Forces of Ukraine are gathering forces for their subsequent promotion to the front.

It is noteworthy that for the first time the bombing of a ground satellite station is recorded. The Russians say it's a Starlink ground station.

Data exchange line between NATO and Ukraine dead

According to Russian military sources,  the Russian strikes disrupted the operation of the data exchange line between the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the NATO command for several hours.

They specifically mentioned:

“As a result of the failure of the energy supply systems, the operation of the emergency data exchange lines between the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the NATO headquarters was interrupted for several hours.

For the first time since the beginning of the Russian special military operation, the Ukrainian command had problems regarding the impossibility of receiving operational information about the situation at the fronts. The Ukrainians could not be informed by the foreign Officers.

The problems were caused not only by the strikes on the electricity infrastructure, but also by operational communication hubs that came under attack.

In the first hours after the Russian strikes, the Ukrainian staff made great efforts to restore the infrastructure, which allows the rapid exchange of data both in the form of "front - General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine" and in the form of "General Staff Armed Forces of Ukraine – NATO Command”.

Kiev forces are trying to ensure the restart of the mentioned operational military communication hubs.

If it is not achieved, then the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (perhaps with the participation of NATO specialists) should look for alternative options for organizing the operation of such hubs, including organizing their uninterrupted supply.”

200 Poles and 100 Foreign Legion mercenaries dead

The Russian Ministry of Defense reported in its official statement the death of 200 Polish soldiers.

The Russians face a triumph: The largest defense fortress of the Ukrainians in the Donbas is collapsing! – An incendiary barrage burned the Ukrainian positions

Ukrainians urgently asked for reinforcements - Losing their biggest stronghold!

Russian forces are facing a major victory as information from the front indicates that the Ukrainian defense in the city of Bakhmut has collapsed after 3 months of fierce fighting.

We remind you that the Russians already control the waste sorting plant located on the southern border of Fedora Maksymenka Street in Bakhmut.

The city of Bakhmut (Artyomovsk) is of strategic importance to both the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation as it is the most important transport hub in Donbass.

The Russians report that the Ukrainian 58th brigade is retreating as it has suffered heavy casualties. It has lost over 50% of its staff. However, and especially the units of PMC Wagner have heavy losses in the area.

The biggest problem for the Ukrainians is located in western Bakhmut.

The Russians attack from four points as shown on the map below. The heaviest fighting is taking place east of Opytne where the Ukrainians are trying to fight back without success.

According to confirmed information, the Ukrainians have indeed urgently requested reinforcements in Bakhmut. They are fighting a huge battle to hold the city as the temperature in the area is minus 6 degrees Celsius and the Russians are preparing their final assault.

The Ukrainian defense in Bakhmut is collapsing

Russian media reports that Ukrainian defenses are beginning to collapse in Bakhmut (Artyomovsk).

The battles for this city have been going on for a long time, but now the countdown has begun. All this time, the defense in Bakhmut and its surroundings was held by the 58th separate motorized infantry brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

In mid-May, Russian forces launched an offensive towards Bakhmut via Popashnaya. Earlier, unable to withstand the pressure, Ukrainian troops retreated from Popashnaya to Bakhmut.

Then, under a barrage of artillery fire and airstrikes by the Russian Aerospace Forces, the Brigade's 15th Separate Motorized Infantry Battalion lost half its personnel within hours.

On August 1, fighting began in the suburbs of Bakhmut, which by then had turned into a strong fortified area.

To date, Russian forces have managed to advance deep into the defense of Ukrainian troops in the area of ​​the village of Ivangrad having crossed the Bakhmutka River, near the village of Opytnoe.

Now Russian forces are encircling the city from the south, going behind enemy lines.

The 58th Ukrainian brigade has suffered heavy losses, over 50% of its personnel.

According to the Russians, soldiers from the brigade's 13th and 15th motorized infantry battalions turned to the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with a request to urgently send help, otherwise they will not hold the city.

In addition, the Ukrainians, realizing the seriousness of the situation, began to transfer from Kyiv the 241st Territorial Defense Brigade to Bakhmut.

This consists of 8 separate Territorial Defense battalions. These are the 130th, 204th, 205th, 206th, 207th, 242nd, 243rd, 251st Battalion

Ukrainian positions in Nevelskoye were burned

The Russian military covered the area of ​​Nevelskoye settlement, located in the western suburbs of Donetsk, with a massive attack of 9M22S incendiary munitions. According to Russian sources, about two dozen rockets were fired in total at Nevelskoye, burning Ukrainian army positions.

In the videos, you can see the moment the area of ​​the settlement is covered with incendiary ammunition. The settlement of Nevelskoe is controlled by the Ukrainian army, and its defense line built up over the years makes it extremely difficult for Russian troops to advance.

However, given the area covered by the incendiary munitions, most Ukrainian military positions and underground shelters should have been destroyed.

According to the Russians, the use of incendiary munitions has proven its high effectiveness, as the latter are able to work effectively both against shelters and against manpower and military equipment.

Considering the attack on the Ukrainian positions, Russian analysts believe that in the near future the Russian army will launch an offensive in this region.

Soldiers of the 100th brigade of the 1st army corps of the Donetsk forces and forces of the 11th regiment of the People's Militia are operating in Nevelskoye.

Not long ago the Russians captured the Ukrainian stronghold covering the settlement of Nevelskoye, known as “Basin”
