Brief summary of the general situation on the Oskol front:
The Russians have withdrawn from Izyum after a rearguard action and the troops and materiel have been saved. The withdrawal was inevitable and it is the right decision because the disparity of forces was enormous. There were very few forces in this inactive sector, about 5,000 fighters and the Ukrainians have engaged in the offensive a minimum of 30,000 bayonets and continue to bring forces, up to 50,000. That is, there can be no talk of either collapse or conquest because the Ukrainian offensive has struck in an unprotected area.
A new front has formed on the Oskol, at both ends of the reservoir. In Kupyansk a few battalions defend the eastern part of the city, which is the industrial zone and conducive to defense, although there are infiltrations of patrols, to the south on a stretch that is fordable a new front is being formed between Kupyansk and the Pecheneg reservoir, from East to West. It seems that the Russians are waiting to evacuate all the civilians so that the camp will be empty. The Ukrainian offensive seems to be losing momentum due to the lengthening of the supply lines and the losses suffered.
To the south Krasny Liman resists and with the arrival of Izyum troops the bridgehead in Stary Karavan will be able to be contained and eliminated. The front of the Donbass salient is not in danger.
The Ukrainian offensive has conquered ground but has not achieved any military objectives. It has not encircled or destroyed Russian forces, which in the worst case have suffered no more casualties than those successfully defending the Kherson front (about 2,000), and a further advance to the north to reach Vovchansk and the Russian border or turn east and cross the Oskol River higher up from Kupyansk is no longer possible.
Summary of Rybar:
Situation in the Kharkov direction
at 13.00 on September 11, 2022
At the moment, Russian units continue to reconfigure the front in the Kharkov direction. The withdrawal of the Russian Armed Forces from the Udy — Kazachya Lopan — Bolshye Prokhody line has begun.
The Russian Armed Forces maintain a limited presence, covering convoys with refugees departing for the territory of the Russian Federation. East of Seversky Donets, separate mobile groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have so far reached the Khotomlya-Bolshoy Burluk border. To the north, Russian units continue to evacuate civilians.
Due to the lack of coordination between the Ukrainian units, the Ukrainian Armed Forces shelled Bolshoy Burluk, although only civilians remained in the village.
The Russian Armed Forces continue to alignthe front along the Oskol River, bringing reinforcements to the left bank. In the area of the village of Oskol, detachments of the 60 OMSB maintain a rear guard so that the road remains open, ensuring the exit of certain groups of refugees.
In the area of the village of Senkovo, the army aviation of the Russian Armed Forces destroyed a pontoon crossing of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
