Summary of the daily livestream with Aleksey Arestovych, kindly brought to you by Atis: @savaadaak
English voice-over video by Privateer Station:
Original video in Russian:
Kharkiv: all the same – bombing city and chaotic movements in surroundings.
Izium: unsuccessful 🇷🇺 counterattacks after several days of 🇺🇦 advances.
Siversk: 🇷🇺 reinforcing, reports of forces near Yampil (7-8 BTGs) starting movements, wanting to force river, but they are destined to fail.
Bakhmut: 🇷🇺 attempts at north and south. At one location 🇷🇺 got kicked hard and ceased their attempts.
Kodema: 🇷🇺 reached Zaitseve, but no encirclement attempts yet. Situation changing often.
Pisky: partially in 🇺🇦 control, partially 🇷🇺. 8th 🇷🇺 report of capturing Pisky was not true.
Marinka: same unsuccessful 🇷🇺 attempts at same locations
Vuhledar: 🇺🇦 got success couple of days ago, now unsuccessful 🇷🇺 attacks on Pavlivka.
Kherson: traditionally 🇺🇦 using HIMARS. Preliminary information that needs verification – 🇷🇺 general killed today.
Popasna: 🇷🇺 war reporter took some photos, that shown building number, as a result Wager base was bombed. Hard to say causality numbers, but probably several dozen. Prigozhin’s visit signifies, that this location has problems, visit is intended to boost morale.
🇷🇺 intends use referendum (as well as Zaporozhye NPP) as trading leverage for peace negotiations. There is huge flow of 🇷🇺 emissaries abroad, all calling for peace. During March negotiations in 🇹🇷 Istambul, 🇷🇺 was ready to agree for retreating into February 23rd positions. There are plenty options to sell that as victory to internal audience – 🇺🇦 is not in NATO, got demilitarized, national battalions destroyed, etc
🇷🇺 military forum:
🇷🇺 needs recognition from somebody, now it’s getting it from outcast countries.
From the list of accused, it’s visible that this is compromise. In order to move missile system over border, you need to issue command to both border guards (FSB) and army. Civilian flights are well identifiable, and there are about 5 actions that need to be taken, before missile is launched, each requiring verification of target. Arestovych is 70% sure, that hit on civilian aircraft was intentional. Court decision on 17th of November.
One of 🇺🇦 top pilots Anton Listopad was killed during battle.
Ghost of Kyiv was collective image of 2 tactical aviation brigades, responsible for defending Kyiv. There are pilots, who have destroyed multiple 🇷🇺 aircraft.
