The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation gives the details of the battle:

▪️ The Kiev regime made an attempt to attack the units of the Russian Armed Forces with the forces of two Ukrainian mechanized battalions on tanks and infantry fighting vehicles on May 14;

▪️ The advancing of enemy armored vehicles and preparations for the attack were discovered by UAV crews and technical intelligence of the Russian formation;

▪️ The enemy's armored vehicles were hit by drones and artillery, after which the enemy's attack was repulsed by oncoming fire from tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, as well as anti-tank weapons;

▪️ The idea of ​​the Kyiv authorities turned out to be a hopeless adventure, during which 26 Ukrainian tanks and 12 infantry fighting vehicles were destroyed. The irretrievable losses of the enemy in manpower amounted to about 100 servicemen.

Footage of the battlefield from Russian drones:

A pity.

Is there any details of what regiments were involved?

Cuprum, why haven't your precious Soviets won the war already?

RittervonBek17 May 2022 10:27 a.m. PST

We have to accept that even Muscovite Orks will win an engagement. Presumably the Kiev regime is actually the sovereign state of Ukraine? Ще нi вмерла Украина.

I'm sure both sides are having successes and failures. Ukrainian successes get a lot of press and YouTube clicks, but there's not much view from the Russian side of things. It does make you wonder what's really going on as the battlefield assessments are all over the place. Clearly, the Russians are losing more equipment than the Ukrainians, but to believe that the Ukrainians haven't suffered any losses would be a bit naive.

Yep, as the old saying goes, "truth is the first casualty in war." So both sides are spinning propaganda, but even what seems like the most extreme claims by Ukraine often have truth -- like the execution of civilians in Russian occupied zones. Seemed like just a propaganda war story until the cameras recorded the corpses and hasty graves.

But in general, the Russian military has proven to be a paper tiger. It is capable of inflicting great damage and harm, but it is not the highly trained professional military we had all been led to believe.

Thats light casualties for the Ukrainians, our man Zak, ex British Army now Ukrainian Army reported a niegbouring Ukrainian Army unit losing far more, however they blunted a large Nazi Russian attack causing many more casualties than they received.

Tally Ho!

It's clear that attacking across open country, like the eastern Ukraine, is now very difficult. It requires very sophisticated support systems and meaningful anti-drone systems (detection and neutralization or destruction).

Unless the videos have been down-sampled, the video quality is pretty bad.

Bandolier17 May 2022 2:14 p.m. PST

Did the Moscow regime post details on the losses of their attempted river crossings?

Gwydion17 May 2022 3:13 p.m. PST

Interesting footage Cuprum2, thanks for posting.

Ukrainian Army unit losing far more, however they blunted a large Nazi Russian attack causing many more casualties than they received.
As noted the Ukrainians have & will take losses. However, they generally kill more than they lose it appears. Plus they may take losses but generally they successfully accomplish the mission.

Oh no, you found a Ukranian attack that didn't succeed…

I found an invasion that didn't succeed :-)

On Russian unofficial channels, there are a lot of videos of the destruction of Ukrainian units. But I see no reason to publish them here – in fact, such videos mean little without being tied to a specific location and date. In addition, YouTube quickly deletes such "pro-Russian" videos, and I do not know how to publish videos from instant messengers on this forum.

The publication of any data on the losses of Russian troops without indicating the reliable sources used is prohibited by law, which in fact means that accurate information will be published only after the war. But everyone knows about the situation at the crossing near Belogorovka in Russia. Here is a link to a hyperpatriotic resource that unconditionally supports Putin and justifies any actions of the Russian authorities with a discussion of the event mentioned above. You don't have to read it, but it proves that this information is widely available in Russia.


There is an ancient saying in Russia: "Do not brag when you go to the fight, but brag when you return". ;-)
I believe that Russia is still waging war with only one hand, limiting itself.

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP17 May 2022 11:24 p.m. PST

I respect you Cudrum 2… and apreciated your side information… but… "… limiting itself" with what?… nukes?… your country had invaded another country whose government was democratic elected… no matter their origin…

When I saw old people… mothers with little babies… young couples … etc… etc … in Russia that were taken by the police by force in the most brutal way just for manifest (even with a blank paper) against the war… I had no doubt which is the "bad" or wrong side… if this really is a persecution of Nazis… I only see them on the Russian government and political side…


Heedless Horseman17 May 2022 11:25 p.m. PST

Utterly senseless and stupid war. All down to One man. Yet, Russians seem to be backing him. As nations do.
All the death and destruction.
For what?

Cuprum2 Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2022 2:13 a.m. PST

Silly and useless war. But she's on her way. And worse than war can only be defeat in it. Everyone in this war is both right and wrong. Now only weapons will judge this situation.
So let God help us all, he alone knows the truth!

dapeters18 May 2022 1:26 p.m. PST

No Cuprum2, the rest of the world has a good idea as well. I am sorry that you live under such a government. To be sure the west has it's serious issues as well, but nowhere near your Country's.

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP18 May 2022 3:29 p.m. PST

Dear Cuprum 2… your exactly words in the lips of Goebbels … would sound perfect for their origin and political party… days after the invasion of Russia…


Thresher0118 May 2022 7:38 p.m. PST

What were the Russian losses in this battle?

Tango01 Supporting Member of TMP19 May 2022 3:30 p.m. PST

Two…credibility and humanity…

"Everyone in this war is both right and wrong."

I disagree. One man is in the wrong and his name is Putin.
