Heavy Blow: Hundreds Killed And Wounded By Russian Strikes On Training Ground In Selidovo

Illustrative Image

Russian forces dealt a devastating blow to the Ukrainian military. On the morning of February 13, Russian strikes destroyed reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU), which came for the joint combat training to the village of Selidovo in the Donetsk People’s Republic.

Several waves of Russian strikes hit the training ground, where about 1,500 Ukrainian servicemen could be deployed. There are still no official statements from any of the warring parties. The Ukrainian media remain silent, while Russian sources that are close to the military provide details of the attack.

There were reportedly at least two waves of strikes. The Russian military learned the tactics which Ukrainian Nazis are using against civilians in the Donbass and other regions that Kiev lost. After the first attack hit the ranks of Ukrainian servicemen, leaving dozens killed and wounded, the second wave of strikes targeted military and security forces that came to the spot to evacuate the killed and wounded.

The Russian military reportedly used several Iskander missiles with a cluster munition. Additionally Smerch MLRS, also with a cluster part, were used.

The real number of casualties is unlikely to be officially revealed by the Kiev regime. According to some preliminary reports from the spot, the attack resulted in about 500 Ukrainian servicemen killed and about 700 others wounded. According, to other reports, there are dozens killed. It is clear that the number of casualties is likely to rise, as many soldiers have been seriously injured and their lives are at risk.

Selidovo is a strategically important logistics hub of the Ukrainian military. Ukrainian units come there from Pavlograd and Pokrovsk before being sent to the frontlines. The military facilities in the village were used for accumulation of Ukrainian military reserves before they were sent to plug the holes in defense in the Donetsk direction. According to preliminary reports, a large part of the victims of today’s attack were servicemen of the notorious 3rd Assault Brigade “Azov”. The Ukrainian military command had previously declared that this unit would be send to reinforce Ukrainian garrison in Avdiivka.

Deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine Mariana Bezuglaya reportedly confirmed the attack and claimed that after the incident in Selidovo, mass inspections began in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, from the General Staff to those responsible “on the ground.”

Reports from Selidovo also confirm heavy losses to the Ukrainian Army. All the roads in the area were blockaded by security forces. There are many ambulances and trucks to take the corpses. The Security Service of Ukraine is reportedly raiding the village looking for spotters on the ground, those who leaked information about the accumulation of large Ukrainian forces on the training ground.

This is far from the first Russian precision strikes on the accumulation of Ukrainian forces near the front. In November, 2023, the 128th Brigade of the AFU lost dozens killed and wounded after Iskander thwarted the awarding ceremony in the village of Dimitrovo in the Zaporozhie region. LINK

However, this is the first such bloody attack on Ukrainian units in the rear after the new Ukrainian commander-in-chief Syrsky took office. Such an incident will definitely worsen his already weak reputation among the Ukrainian population, especially among the military.

In an attempt to distract the population from another defeat, Kiev is expected to launch another bloody attack in the Russian rear, including on civilian targets.

it will be brutal for for future inhabitants of donetsk, as there are always significantly more innocent people killed and maimed by cluster munitions in future years than the intended military targets. assuming the civilians escape the inevitable nzi revenge killings.

donestsk btw is now part of rus, so this cowardly action is sick. who the f**k is in charge of the rf?

Clyde

the us puppet in kiev and its armed forces will be just a bad memory in donetsk in ten years, the way civilization in the failed ukrainian cia project is now a fading memory from ten years ago.

B.F.Finlayson

at what cost to civilian life in dnbs in the meantime? btw, the cia still controls ukr, and without any rus opposition is happily watching z send still more slav conscripts to be slaughtered by their obliging rus brothers.

the damage and hatred wreaked by murikan expansionism and nationalistic fscsm in ukr is not going to just fade away anytime soon. arguably, this could be only phase 1 of a much larger conflict unless heads get banged together.

exactly why do the white christian slavs kill other christian slavs for their hebrew master?

they are of one people. they need to rise up, and unify with their white brothers and zyklon b zelenskys midget cross dressing hebrew ass.

Sunny

i usually agree with your posts but in this case i do not. if they were serious about this war they would be using more cluster ammo, not less.

B.F.Finlayson

rus has a multiplicity of options to destroy enemy combatants without resort to these wholly inefficient banned munitions (although of course rus is not a signatory to the 2008 dublin convention). 97% of casualties from clusterbimbs are non combatants, many of them children.

rus should have taken kiev in april 2022 instead of believing the west and countless 000s would still be alive. only yoosa is laughing at the carnage.

you just need to be worried about your hormone replacement therapy in the stunning and brave west. everything else is too complicated for you.

BoJo "to the last ukrainian"

scholz and macron talked putin into withdrawing from kiev, so zelensky could ‘talk peace without guns to their head’, as it’s been told.

fool me once, fool me twice – putin made it a record – fool me three times. hey, what can one say? they pulled that routine once too often.

Pliny the Youngest

well, one sure thing you can say…is that ua and the eu share in the same corrupt moral values, with no word meant to not be broken. dealing with such human scum is well beyond my intestinal fortitude.

jens brother, formerly sister.

did you have any problem with ukraine firing cluster munitions into civilians or is it only when russia responds in kind into ,military personnel.. the town is in ukraine’s hands for the moment so ukraine military are the ones at risk until russia captures it and cleans up the area they know which was hit.

Sunny

as i posted this, the next cluster ammo strike has been reported in a different location. lots of damaged ukro vehicles. looks like they might have used the thermal seeking cluster warheads.

we’ll see if we’ve reached the part of the script where russia takes the gloves off, or if this was just a 1 time demonstration of what they could do.

BoJo "to the last ukrainian"

i don’t know. they could have knocked all the electricity out last winter by hitting main transformers, not just the secondary stuff, but they didn’t. they didn’t want to freeze the population, is all i can say. otherwise, why not? the ukies certainly would have.

two years on and the smo has still failed to take back all donbs, now rus territory, let alone advance and denzify ukr.

as happened in kherson and artymovsk, ukrnazis will now take revenge on innocent rus speaking civilians who voted to re-join mother rus. sick clstrbmb tactics from the ‘humane’ rf, which doesn’t want to put out the lights or stop rains running in kiev (rus civilians on the other hand don’t matter to the krmln).

‘trains running in kiev’

Clyde

ten years since the us coup in kiev, and the us puppet forces have failed to ethnically cleanse donbas. the ukrainian cia project has the sixth largest armed forces on earth, with training from the us and imperial lackeys from the uk and canada. the ukrainian puppet force has received vast stocks of weapons and materiel supplies from its us owner, as well as intelligence and communication support. it is literally a us war against russia using ukrainian assets.

B.F.Finlayson

rus was 100% aware of events 2008 to 2014 illegal coup, but did nothing.

heavy ukr attacks on dnbs started, rus signed minsk i/ii deals which aimed only at allowing time for ukr forces to build. rus did nothing.

2014-22: ukrnzi’s took control of yoosa’s new fscst puppet bio-state, weapons flooded in, blackrock bought agriland, the military grew and rus still did nothing, as14,000 dnbs civilians died.

(dec 2019, paris summit: zlnsky openly laughed at p’s gullibility)

Zelenskii's Flaring Nostrils

russians have learned that practicing patience and diplomacy with the west is a bad strategy, and that putting their cigarettes out on western foreheads is the proper thing to do.

B.F.Finlayson

rus has yet to lay a glove on the west, whether in ukr, syr or plstn; it’s too busy massacring its slavic brethren (conscripted by murika as cannon fodder). all this carnage so shgu can gleefully report death totals, blissfully unaware that rus is being played and out thought by yoosa-nto.

ps: rus is yet to put a boot outside donbs, it’s nowhere near reclaiming its own post-sept22 borders and lobbing clusterfks in dpr ain’t gonna help take kiev.

Clyde

the russians are pretty actively dealing with a us proxy force in the ukraine. how much territory lost by that failed ukrainian cia project since the 2014 us coup in kiev, anyhow?

BoJo "to the last ukrainian"

oh, anybody could withstand that. tongues or even eyeballs would be another thing altogether.

russia did nothing? funny, i could’t turn on a television from autumn 2013 until 2022 without hearing about russian aggression in the ukraine. you should try reading the economist or any other five eyes rag. they’re filled with tales of russian conquest. little green men, buks, tanks, etc. ad infinitum. thanks for playing, nafomosexual.

yeah, don’t forget all those hospitals they bombed in syria, five times over.

and all that sarin and chlorine they gave isis, er, i mean assad.

whatever happened to the belching cat, anyway? no one publishes his super duper sleuth stuff any more. did he fall of his balcony like that brit that forgot to wear his white helmet to break the fall do? outlived his usefulness, i guess.

BoJo "to the last ukrainian"

oh, the us would never ethnically cleanse a population. my gosh no. that’d be a war crime.

they’d just have their proxies do it and whitewash the aftermath.

calm down, dear this will soon be over. the us economy is imploding, their willingness to pursue the sunk costs of ukraine is fading. the mutant ‘pax americana’ and the servility of their euro-vassals will all pass.

B.F.Finlayson

of course murika’s economy is imploding, i’ve spelled this out many times including yesterday, not that clyde agrees (as the dollar still rules in his world view).

this decline (plus jb’s impending defeat) makes a 2024 nto attack on rus more (not less) likely unless rus gets it act together and stands up to yoosa/nto in all theatres (syr, plstn, ukr).

all murika needs is a pretext and/or false flag and uk/baltics/poland will be there frothing at the mouth like yapping rabid dogs.

Shock and Awe

don’t worry low life when nato enters ukraine then you will find out exactly what russia can and can’t do!!! from russia with love is now called sarmat!!!

Clyde

the dollar absolutely rules. no other country can play the games that the us does with balance of payments. there are two powers in the new world economy, china and the us. it’s not multi-polar, it’s still uni-polar. the russian state’s actions in the face of the us behemoth are quite remarkable in their effectiveness at undermining us efforts at maintaining control of europe.

the second wave is an old british method used against the german civilans during world war ii: fist the raf burnt the city, then , with the second strike, they burnt the firemen. they were more efficient when they had to flee the german infantry (like in dunkerk) and when they were bombing civilans than against the german tanks…

we british didn’t actually have much chance to kill german military because the german forces were too busy fighting the russians. at least 90 percent of the germans were in the east. we were good at the bombing the dams to flood the ruhr probably inspired the ukrainians. we were also good at setting up proxies to do the fighting for us. the poles czechs etc.

BoJo "to the last ukrainian"

nice guys, you brits. let the soviets do they heavy lifting and then invite all the nazis left over to work against them post-war. i was anti-soviet too but why now? when the su collapsed and no more communist menace, the britsyou keep up with undermining russia at every turn.

what is it with the brits and their hard on for russia? what are they, envious that they live on a tiny island with few natural resources? i never understood the reasons for their perpetual russophobia.

BoJo "to the last ukrainian"

you know, that’s exactly why imperial japan started all their territorial conquests.yep, i’d say – the brits have pretty much the same mindset as imperial japan. somebody should really keep those guys to heel. sorry if i’m blunt but that’s the way it is.

you know what will really throw the west for a loop. russia moves all the way to the dnieper then stops. no afu left to stop them crossing over but …they just stop. like they did in georgia in ’08. they could’ve taken over all of georgia, it was in the palm of their hands in 5 days but….they stopped, and withdrew to s. ossetia contact lines, leaving tbilisi and saakashvili untouched.
