Vladimir Putin is facing the worst defeat since World War Two as the Russian Army are facing a major disaster as the Ukrainian Armed Forces (AFU) are slaughtering Moscow’s troops.
President Volodymyr Zelensky’s troops have now reached the Oskil river as Senkove and they have now cut of Russia’s main line of communication with forces based in Izyum.
Thousands of Russian troops are now trapped and Putin could lose an entire army group of troops meaning Ukrainian forces could win the Donbas.

Vitaliy Ganchev, the Moscow-installed head of occupied parts of Kharkiv region, told Russian state TV, “The very fact of a breach of our defences is already a substantial victory for the Ukrainian armed forces.”
According to Ukraine’s Centre for Strategic Communications (Stratcom), they said this “creates an opportunity to develop an offensive on Izyum and Kupyansk”, a town on the River Oskil.
Stratcom said these are “important logistical centres” for Putin’s army, as they are used as vital staging posts to supply military equipment to the front line.
The Ukrainian armed forces’ latest assault will hopefully “complicate Russian logistics and expose their rear.”
Stratcom added, “It will be difficult to organise alternative supply routes due to the peculiarities of the area.”
Stratcom said access to the Oskil reservoir across the river with the same name “will actually cut off the enemy group in Izyum from the rear.
“The Russian military will be surrounded.”
The British Ministry of Defence (MoD) said the AFU have advanced 50km into the territory where the Russian forces are holed up.
Analysts believe that the Russian high command in the Kremlin were “most likely taken by surprise” of the “substantial victory” in the Kharkiv region.
They wrote, “Ukrainian forces launched offensive operations in the south of Kharkiv Oblast on 06 September 2022. Lead elements have advanced up to 50km into previously Russian held territory on a narrow front.
“Russian forces were likely taken by surprise. The sector was only lightly held and Ukrainian units have captured or surrounded several towns.”
