The Atlanticist counter-offensive

the last NATO attempt to avoid defeat in its proxy war in Ukraine against Russia

Humor on social networks

The preamble is a mysterious event. Through its military support to Ukraine, NATO is depleting its own stocks and its impatience is growing to watch a counter-offensive. Here is the event, while the battle for Bakhmut is going on, a meat grinder for the Ukrainian cannon fodder and many foreign mercenaries, where the Atlanticist forces are controlling now less than 5% of the city, at its western end

  • Act I

On May 9, 2023, French news agency AFP announced the death of journalist Arman Soldin, during a Russian shelling in the vicinity of Chasov Yar. My first question was why had he come to maybe the worst point of the whole front line, where the Russian artillery and air forces are pounding the Atlanticist reserves, only 15 km west of downtown Bakhmut.

  • Act II

Moreover, Ukraine paid tribute to Oleksiy Titarenko, a senior adviser to Volodymyr Zelenskyy, who had been killed the same day in Donetsk region [Donetsk People’s Republic], in Chasov Yar, Ukrainian private channels detailed. I guess alongside the French journalist.

  • Act III

On May 10, NATO military committee states that Valery Zaluzhny, the Ukrainian chief of staff, does not participate that day in a scheduled joint video conference. The rumor of his death is spreading and the deputy defense minister, Hanna Maliar, is bound to publicly deny the alleged liquidation of our commanders.

To be or not to be, that is the question

In the evening, Russian journalist Alexander Kots, from reliable sources, states that the expected Atlanticist counter-offensive may have begun in the north, not in Donbass, from Kharkov region toward Russia, with Western armored fighting vehicles (AFVs) which have been spotted in columns. The Russian air forces are also striking in the region of Chernigov, about 500 km northwest of Kharkov.

Meanwhile in the south, an accumulation of landing crafts has been seen near Berislav, about 75 km upstream of Kherson, on the right bank of Dnieper river. The Atlanticist forces may attempt to cross the river. But my focus is on the Western AFVs.

During his daily evening address from his Bunker, Volodymyr Zelenskyy appears tired, to say the least. He pays tribute to a few formations of the armed forces, that is all

The fighting is going on in Bakhmut and in the evening, Yevgeny Prigozhin, head of Wagner private military company (PMC), states that the Atlanticist forces are controlling less than two square km


But in the northern suburb, the Russian regular forces seem so far unable to contain an Atlanticist onslaught, which is now threatening the northern part of the city. The enemy accumulation of forces was known for a long time and the counterattack should not be a surprise. It has begun a few days ago. Time is necessary to absorb the shock, nothing unusual at the beginning, but now, there is a problem. The Russian army is losing the gain of a several-month effort of Wagner, moreover, some of the heights which are surrounding the city. If unable to hold the ground north of Bakhmut, when the Western AFVs are not involved so far, the Russian army should not be able to hold elsewhere in Donbass.

In Khmelnytskyi, western Ukraine, about 325 km southwest of Kiev, Russian cruise missiles or/and drones destroy an ammunition depot. Secondary explosions and blaze are tremendous. At 4:52 am, local time, the European Mediterranean Seismological Centre (EMSC) records 3.4 magnitude shocks northwest of the city

When will we finally stop putting all the eggs in one basket ?

comments Yuri Kasyanov, a former Ukrainian official. The targeted facility was concealing a huge amount of ammunition and high-tech military equipment from NATO countries.

The European radioactivity monitoring is clearly showing a rise of gamma dose rate in Khmelnytskyi since May 12

If Russia had used nuclear ammunition, the radiation would have started rising on May 13, not on May 12. Ukrainian journalist and member of Svoboda [liberty], a Nazi political party, Ihor Mosiychuk sounds the alarm, advises to take children away from the epicenters of the explosions.

dirty bomb is combining radioactive material with conventional explosive, in order to disperse the former. Through the stockpile in Khmelnytskyi of the British depleted uranium (DU) armor piercing (DUAP) shells, Ukraine has likely and unintentionally made its own dirty bomb

In the previous night, Russia conducted a raid in Kiev, where the US had delivered a Patriot air defense system, which launched at least 20 SAMs (surface-to-air missiles), as shown in Ukrainian CCTV footage. Each SAM is costing €5,275,000, for a €105,500,000 total. But at the end, a Russian Kinzhal [dagger] hypersonic missile demilitarized the US air defense system, which is costing $1.1 billion


In the morning, some US SAMs are found in Kiev. This one has not hit a building

The Russian defense ministry details that the raid in Kiev the day before has managed to destroy one radar station and five SAMs launchers. Over a month, the shares of Raytheon Technologies Coporation, the manufacturer, have lost 7%.

Except some armored personnel carriers (APCs), mostly destroyed or seized, no other Western armored vehicles, no Panzekampfwagen, have been involved so far on the battlefield. At 3:50 pm, local time, one year after another liberation, the surrender in Mariupol of Nazi Azov regiment, Yevgeny Prigozhin announces that the Russian forces have achieved a complete victory in Bakhmut, Donetsk People’s Republic, Donbass, Russia. No Atlanticist fighter remains alive in the city


I do not think that a few dozen Western tanks would turn the tide in Donbass or Ukraine. But the spectacle of their combustion may have a larger psychological and political impact than their military influence. That is the reason why failing a real counter-offensive so far, they have not been involved. Because the way the Atlanticist forces have been bled since August 2022, in the trap of Bakhmut meat grinder, may have ruined the opportunities for such a counter-offensive.

  • May 22, 2023

In order to ward off the psychological impact of the humiliating defeat in Bakhmut two days earlier, Ukraine is raiding border villages in Russia. A few motorized/mechanized platoons are involved. Noise and panic are the goals. Fake alarming messages are simultaneously addressed to the Russian citizens through social networks. That is a psychological operation (PSYOP).

The targets are in Grayvoron district, Belgorod region

(Ukrainian social networks)

about 80 km northwest of Kharkov

(Google Maps)

The assaillants are members of Svoboda Rossii [Freedom of Russia] and the Russian Volunteer Corps (Russkiy dobrovol’cheskiy korpus, RDK), a bunch of Nazi defectors, who have deserted recently or settled in Ukraine for years, are usually working for the psychological department of the Ukrainian military intelligence (GUR), which confirms the operation as its own

Near Grayvoron, on May 22, here are two members of the RDK. The beard man at left is Alexey Levkin, a racist murderer who fled Russia, the organizer since December 2014 in Kiev of Asgardsrei [ride of Asgard in Norwegian] Nazi black metal (NSBM) music festival (screenshot)

Their vehicles are mostly US, MaxxPros and Humvees

Here is a US MaxxPro in a Ukrainian video near Grayvoron on May 22. But the fighter at the forefront is not Russian, is displaying the chevron of a Ukrainian Nazi paramilitary organization, Tradytsiya ta poryadok [tradition and order] (screenshot)

As usual after enough noise, the assailants are endeavoring to avoid direct confrontation with the Russian forces (border guards, FSB, national guard, army) and to retreat to Ukraine.

  • May 23, 2023

In the morning, the Russian defense ministry claims scores of dead militants in Belgorod region, releases a video which is showing air strikes


Journalists share other documents, which are disclosing enemy corpses, destroyed Humvees and one of the seized MaxxPros

Since September 2022, all Atlanticist military vehicles in Ukraine are displaying the Balkenkreuz, German thick white cross during WW2

More than half of the assailants may have been killed. That is a carnage for a psychological operation, that Kiev does not comment further. Ukraine has usually no problem with the sacrifice of fighters. As usual, the commando may have let numerous mines behind


Meanwhile, Volodymyr Zelenskyy visits the armed forces in the area of Ugledar and Maryinka, still occupied part of Donetsk People’s Republic (DNR), where Kiev is reinforcing its positions but the Russian army is still advancing.

Four days after the Ukrainian defeat in Bakhmut, the Russian navy manages to destroy three unmanned surface vessels (USVs) and their explosive payloads, which race toward a military ship

(Russian defense ministry, screenshots)

The attack occurs about 140 km northeast of Bosphorus. Where the drones operate from ? Probably not Bulgaria nor Turkey, rather another ship. Ukraine is unable to carry out such operation alone, has at least received air intelligence from abroad. Once more, NATO attacks Russia through the Black sea grain initiative corridor

(Google Maps)

The victorious ship is Ivan Khurs, a signals intelligence (SIGINT) vessel, Yury Ivanov-class, which is ensuring the security of the Turkish Stream and Blue Stream gas pipelines in the exclusive economic zone of Turkey

These Ukrainian USVs are already known, are boarding some Canadian-made navigation modules

Russia already blamed United Kingdom for its involvement when on October 29, 2022, nine drones and seven torpedoes attacked Sevastopol harbor, Crimea, were destroyed before reaching the base of the Russian Black sea fleet.

The video surfaces on Ukrainian social networks. The dialogue between the protagonists is explaining what has happened a few second before : a company leader, who was disagreeing, has shot his battalion commander, who was endeavoring to send his men to the slaughter

I have blurred the face of the victim (screenshot)

The incident may not be the first one. The context is harsh for the Ukrainian cannon fodder of the proxy war that NATO is conducting in Donbass and Ukraine. Many amateur videos have already shown that men who have escaped mobilization, are abducted in the streets or even at home, in order to replenish the ranks. Excluding Wagner losses in Bakhmut, the Ukrainian military casualties are likely ten times the Russian ones. Women are demonstrating in the cities for news about their alleged missing relatives.

War is a simple art, all execution

said Corsican general Napoleone Buonaparte. Through their support, NATO countries are depleting their own stocks, but with more guns and more ammunition, the Russian fire power is far higher. Moreover, airstrikes and missiles are targeting the Atlanticist forces in the deep of the Ukrainian territory. The current Ukrainian military fatalities may be over 250,000.

For several days, the Atlanticist forces are shelling with US rockets and British Storm Shadow cruise missiles in the deep of the Russian territory. The strikes are spread along and around a line from Vasilyevka, on the left bank of Dnieper river, to Berdyansk, on the Black Sea, about 140 km to southeast, also in Zaporojie region. If successful, an offensive along the same axis may isolate Crimea from mainland Russia

The situation is improving in Ukraine. Three days ago, a company leader shot a battalion commander, in an amateur video which was the first evidence of a mutiny. Today, another document is showing that young people have beaten a recruitment sergeant and enabled the escape of who would have been sent to the meat grinder


For about a year, we have seen the evidences of recruits violent abductions in Ukraine. I was wondering how long it would last before the first cases of legitimate and collective rebellion.
