    Yesterdays pressies

    Massive missile strike of the Russian Armed Forces on Ukraine: what is known by the end of the day

    Over the past few weeks, representatives of Ukrenergo have assured the population that the situation in the energy sector has stabilized and the consequences of the strikes by the RF Armed Forces have been completely overcome. Today has shown that these statements are not true.
    The targets were both large power plants and substations across the country.

    🔻 CHPP-5 in Kiev : damage to several boilers provoked a powerful fire that spread to the engine room. Even if some boilers and turbines have survived, it is unlikely that the facility will start working in the near future.
    The impact caused power outages throughout the city and interruptions in water supplies. By the middle of the day, power was restored.

    🔻Kharkiv : strikes completely cut off the power supply in the city. At least 15 explosions were recorded.
    The most likely targets were:
    ➖ Substation Losevo 330 ;
    ➖ CHPP-3 ;
    ➖ CHPP-5 ;
    ➖Traction substation Novoselka-traction;
    ➖ Substation 188 Zhukovsky 110/6 kV.

    The city still does not have a stable power supply , in some places there is no heating or water. There is no electric transport, and there are difficulties with cellular communications and the work of the railways.

    🔻PS Zhytomyrska 330 : The extent of the damage is not fully known. By the end of March 9, power supply in the city and the region had not been fully restored.

    🔻 Krivorozhskaya TPP and Substation Yuzhnaya 330 : the degree of damage to objects is unknown, but indirectly one can judge of serious damage, since significant delays in passenger trains were recorded in the west of the Dnipropetrovsk region.

    🔻 Substation Ukrainka 330 in Kirovograd: The impact led to power outages and delays in passenger trains.

    🔻 Ladyzhinskaya TPP : "Indirectly, the effectiveness of the strike is confirmed by delays in the movement of passenger trains on electrified railway lines."

    🔻 Odessa region: presumably, the blow fell on one of the remaining substations: - Novoodesskaya substation 330, Adzhalyk substation 330, or Tsentrolit substation 220.
    Taking into account the continued growth in electricity imports from Moldova, the Usatovo 330 substation operating for transit did not suffer.

    In the Odessa region, there was no voltage in the contact network of the railway, and passenger trains had long delays. Electricity restrictions have been introduced in the city, and repairs are underway.

    🔻In the Dnipropetrovsk region, strikes were made on the following substations.

    ➖ Substation Pavlogradskaya 330 - autotransformer 330/110 kV burned out.

    ➖ Substation Ferrosplavnaya 330: damage is unknown, but power supply to the Zaporizhzhya NPP was interrupted due to outages.
    In the afternoon, the power supply to the Ferrosplavnaya substation was restored. In Dnepropetrovsk itself, even outdoor lighting was turned on in the evening.

    This suggests that the city is supplied with electricity from the South Ukrainian NPP , and, most likely, it passes through the 750kV lines through the SS Dneprovskaya 750 and Zaporozhskaya 750.

    🔻 Substation Lutsk Severny 330 in the Volyn region: power outages occurred as a result of the impact.
    Also, strikes were recorded in Mykolaiv , Lvov , Ivano-Frankivsk, Khmelnitsky, Ternopil, Poltava regions.

    🔻 What is the result?

    As a result of missile strikes, the situation with Kharkiv's power supply has approached critical : there is no own generation, power from the Zmievskaya TPP is impossible due to damaged substations, and power from the nuclear power plant in western Ukraine simply does not reach the city.

    The impact of today's strikes on train traffic is also noteworthy; for the first time, some passenger trains were delayed by 3-4 hours . This indicates both the seriousness of the problems with power supply and the lack of reserve diesel locomotives.

    🔻But you need to be realistic; in most regions, the situation will stabilize in the next few days.
    To cause irreparable damage to the energy system of Ukraine, it is necessary to strike at the electrical equipment (block transformers) of base stations - nuclear power plants and hydroelectric power stations—and continue to knock out still operating thermal power plants - primarily Zmievskaya , Trypilska, and Burshtynska .

    One way of spinning a defeat

    Zelenskys advisor"Mikhail Podolyak: "Bakhmut is a strategic success, a counteroffensive in two months": Zelensky's adviser said that the upcoming surrender of Artemovsk is a huge victory for the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and promised an offensive in May.

    "As for the defense of Bakhmut, it has fulfilled its tasks by 1000%. The military implemented a plan to destroy the main combat-ready enemy group, on the one hand, and provided training for tens of thousands of Ukrainian servicemen to prepare for a counteroffensive, on the other. Even if the military leadership at some point decides to retreat to more advantageous positions, the defense of Bakhmut will become a great strategic success for the AFU as the foundation of a future victory.

    We will exhaust the Russians, and then focus elsewhere. We need long-range missiles. We need to increase the supply of 155 mm heavy artillery shells. We are not in a hurry, we will reorganize over the next two months"

    Let's hope this is true:

    https://military.pravda.ru/news/1809393-unichtozheny_tenevye_oficery_nato/

    WF: Russian missile attack destroyed NATO "shadow officers" in bunker control centers


    The Russian military launched a missile attack on Ukrainian infrastructure with a large range of missiles and UAVs, destroying a secret NATO headquarters in Ukraine, according to WarFiles.

    According to the Ukrainian side, the strikes were carried out by rockets:

    X-47 "Dagger",
    X-22,
    X-101/X-555,
    Geran UAV.
    In Kyiv, they immediately reported that allegedly 34 missiles were shot down, and eight "did not reach their goals as a result of organized countermeasures."

    This is doubtful even for the Ukrainians themselves, who see the results of arrivals through the windows. Citizens believe that air defense "if they were able to shoot down something on approach, then at most a couple of tricks."

    Ukrainian (and American) air defense is not able to shoot down the "Dagger" at an altitude of 20 km, and after the missile gains altitude, it falls at a great speed on the target and nothing can be done about it.

    "In fact, the blow fell on the bunker control and planning centers, as well as on air defense / radar. Large losses of officers, including American ones, were recorded. It seems that the "shadow General Staff" of the proxy NATO was hit hard," the authors of Military Materials write.

    After that, according to the publication, representatives of the Ukrainian General Staff went to the US Embassy, ​​most likely to transfer the lists of the dead.

    It is also known about the hits on the IRIS and NASAMS air defense systems, which worked on dummy missiles and were destroyed by the Xs flying behind. Almost immediately, those publics that posted this information were blocked.

    Head of the Ministry of Energy of Ukraine Herman Galushchenko separately acknowledged that the missile attack damaged at least three thermal power plants. In fact, energy and military facilities in as many as 12 regions came under the most powerful shelling.

    Yes, the Ukrazies will launch a mass counteroffensive in Bakhmut in May. The Russians will even let them retake it. Bakhmut is but an anvil on which Ukraine will place itself to get hammered. The Russians will take the town, place a batallion of JROTC cadets in it to defend it and wait for the Ukrainians. The Ukrainians will then pour in 20,000 to 30,000 troops into Bakhmut and the Russians will withdraw the cadets, Ukraine will claim victory, and then Russian artillery, rockets and Wagner will take over and by July Russia will launch a small offensive to take the town again and will have it by September and the Ukes will proclaim a Christmas offensive and on and on it will go. Russia will sadly lose a 3 to 5 thousand for that dump. Ukraine will lose 30 to 50,000.

    Well, that could be a strategy, but I believe Russia would like to free the civilians in the rest of occupied Donbass. Furthermore reconquering the rest of Donetzk oblast will prevent the shelling and will give some deserved tranquillity to the resident of the city of Donezk.

    It's fukin' surreal ...

    https://t.me/SIL0VIKI/63518

    Vid made from Ukro side, claimed to be Wagner storming some position surrounding Artemovsk.

    From the beginning, panic mode.
    "Situation is shitty".
    Scaried voices that "they are storming, storming!" are supported by sounds that can be agony.
    "Whoever is alive, shoot whatever you have, help us, help us".
    "We are dying, dying"

    Yeah, counteroffensive peremoga wave is rising.

    confuse the Ukrainian/NATO air defence systems with missiles that cruise in a swarm at various speed. 
    This systems would be confused even if the Russians were just throwing shovels.  lol1

    Verminous nutjob Nuland is openly talking about the US attacking Crimea. These autistics think they are invincible but they are also desperate since
    the world is not following their script. The tantrum baby response is predictable.
