Ukrainian artillery continues to block the only remaining escape route for Russian forces on the Kremennaya-Torskoye road.

Ukrainian defenders will recapture the Liman  of the Donetsk region, where, according to the Kremlin propagandists themselves, the group of the RF Armed Forces fell into an “operational encirclement”, within the next 72 hours.

This is stated in the report of the Institute for the Study of War.

In turn, the Russian side stated on September 30 that the invaders still control one of the roads to Torskoye, while the Armed Forces of Ukraine blocked the Drobyshevo-Torskoye road in the Stavok area. 

At the same time, judging by the published video, Ukrainian artillery reaches the fleeing units of the enemy units on the way to Torskoye. 

According to the same military bloggers, Ukrainian artillery continues to block the only remaining escape route for Russian forces on the Kremennaya-Torskoye road.

Many propagandists argued that the Russian withdrawal from Liman was reminiscent in its randomness of the retreat from Balakliya, Kharkov region. 

They criticized the Russian command for the lack of artillery support. According to them, the Russian Armed Forces are shelling the Nikolaev region, and are not helping the defense of Liman. 

Liman “boiler”  – what is known

A few days ago, Western analysts said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine seem  to be intent on encircling Russian forces in Liman, Donetsk region . This will allow the defenders to threaten the positions of the Russian Federation along the western border of the Lugansk region and in the area of ​​Severodonetsk-Lysichansk

The fighters  took all the paths under fire control , so the Russians have little chance of repeating the mass withdrawal from their positions, as was the case in the Kharkiv region. 

According to the latest data, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have probably  almost completed the encirclement of the Russian group in Liman  and cut off critical ground communications supporting Russian troops in the Drobyshevo-Liman area.

Russian propagandists in their social networks confirm that their group is “in an operational environment” and that the invaders are conducting “all-round defense”. 

In Russia, the situation in Liman is called “extremely difficult.” 

Since the beginning of the full-scale invasion, Russia  has already lost more than 59 thousand of its soldiers  and thousands of pieces of equipment in the war with Ukraine.


  1. In the Ilovaisk massacre of 2014, when the Ukrainians foolishly decided to trust putinazi vermin, 1000 defenders were killed, MIA or wounded, plus several hundred civilians.
    That terrible loss led to even more deception: Minsk. This time the trickery was compounded by the treacherous regimes of France and Germany, who did not hesitate to chuck Ukraine under a bus.
    So this is an opportunity to settle a few scores. Firstly, the same number or more, of orcs need to be smoked. The remainder can be “filtered” to identify the torturers, child murderers and rapists.
    Any remaining after that process can be used in a final trade-off to get ALL Ukrainian POW’s back.
    Then of course there is the issue of the kidnapping of up to 2m civilians that needs to be addressed. The scum admit to it, so there is no debate.
    Any ideas as to how to get these humans out of the hands of fucking savages?

    • I’ve thought about it a lot and I don’t see how since they are destroying the documents and changing names. I am afraid the children are lost and the only hope is to rescue as many parents as possible.

      • Depressing, to put it mildly.
        On top of the litany of genocide and hate crimes committed the putinazis, this one is absolutely staggering. I can’t bear the thought of them getting away with this.

        • Me too. It’s a great tragedy and the world just looks on. We’ve learned less than nothing from our violent and at times deplorable past. As long as we practically support trash nations like mafia land (doing LOTS of business there and tolerating shit nuggets like Tucker) and bat virus land and many others, nothing will ever change.

  2. I don’t see the AFU pretending to give a “green corridor”. The orcs could drop weapons on the way, but there is little cover for escape on a route that is under total fire control by the Ukrainians.

    Eternal Memory of the lives lost at Ilovaisk.

    Total Victory for ALL Ukraine!!!🇺🇦

    Death to the temporary ruZZian occupiers!!!💥🔥☠️
