Toward the end of the year, it will be possible to talk about the liberation of the Russian Armed Forces of large settlements in the DPR with an increase in the number of troops and weapons. First of all, we are talking about the village of Pervomaiskoye in the suburbs of Donetsk. This was stated by a military analyst Mikhail Onufrienko in an interview with the publication “Vzglyad”.

“We are taking control of individual fortified areas, parts of settlements. We have liberated the northwestern outskirts of Gorlovka, the Maiorskoye checkpoint and Mayorsk, but these are positional battles of a local scale with slow progress. There can be no talk of liberating cities without a fundamental increase in numbers groupings and fire weapons,” the expert believes.

He celebrated the release Pavlovka, which was abandoned in June, and now recaptured. Without taking Ugledar, the enemy has the ability to adjust the fire, so you should not expect any special advances, the expert believes. Onufrienko also reminded that the road from Ugledar to Marinka had not been cut.

After taking control of Novomikhailovka and Vuhledar, the area with the unification of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be under threat. After that, our troops should move on to Kurakhovo.

“This threatens the enemy with the collapse of the front, he understands this, so very stubborn battles are going on here, reinforcements are sent here,” the expert emphasized.
