Ukrainian military denies Kremlin’s statement city of Soledar is captured

13 JANUARY 2023

The Ministry of Defence of Ukraine has posted a video from Soledar, in which a fighter who goes by the alias of Madiar asks not to believe the statements from Moscow and shows evidence that Ukrainian military forces are fighting fiercely in the centre of the city.

Details: Madiar asks people to stop listening to Russian propaganda that claims the Armed Forces of Ukraine have withdrawn from Soledar. According to him, the Ukrainian military is fighting for the city, and this is happening right now, as of 14:13 Friday.

The serviceman claimed that his unit stood in the downtown Soledar, and even reported some good news, saying that Russians tried to bypass the city from the flank, but the Ukrainian troops pushed them back, and the hostile force retreated. 

Direct speech: “The Armed Forces of Ukraine stands in an echeloned, impenetrable wall of defence with sufficient forces. Yes, the Wagner assault units are constantly attacking… but we don’t care about their plans, we’re doing our job, and we do it well, and we will do it to the end… Have patience!”

In the first video, Madiar slandered himself and called the date of 13 December. After that, the General Staff added another video where the soldier stands corrected, saying he was trolling the Russians.

Earlier: On 13 January, the Russian Defence Ministry made an official statement about the capture of the city of Soledar in Donetsk Oblast; the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense does not confirm this, admitting that heavy fighting continues in the town.

    What strength! What determination! What a sense of duty! That’s the difference to the murderous rapists and washing machine and dirty underwear stealing cockroaches.

    • It’s not looking good. The Telegraph is reporting:

      “Ukrainan forces are reportedly withdrawing from Soledar after Russia captured the city in their first major breakthrough in the war in six months.

      A team from CNN, stationed around 4km from the salt-mining town, saw what they said were Ukrainian forces ferrying troops out in an organised retreat.

      There was ongoing rocket fire in Soledar after Russia claimed control of the town on Friday morning, it has been claimed.

      Ukraine denied that Russia had seized control of the town of Soledar and said Ukrainian units were still there.

      Earlier, the Russian defence ministry claimed it captured the town of Soledar.”

      This is serious setback; a very bitter blow because the defenders had only their own courage and ingenuity to rely on, being outnumbered and outgunned for many months. Of course it’s good that they squashed many cockroaches, but a great cost to themselves.
      It should never have progressed to the street fighting stage, because the allies should long ago have given them the necessary kit to punch through the orcs and force them back to their shithole.
      Ukraine’s so-called friends must now unequivocally state that no more Ukrainian land will be allowed to fall into the grubby hands of the foul scum. They could for example have used long range drones to hit the Wagner scrotes.
      It’s all very sad and a total fucking disgrace.
