#Severodonetsk - #Russian forces captured the town of Toshkivka after intense #Russian bombardment as indicated by #NASA FIRMS. #Ukrainian troops retreated to #Hirske, where they are building defensive lines. Toshkivka is critical for the #RUAF goal of encircling #Severodonetsk. pic.twitter.com/8Ltz7rjt9E— OSINT Aggregator (@AggregateOsint) May 19, 2022
#Russian troops continue to shell #Severodonetsk with artillery, mortars and MLRS. #NASA FIRMS data suggests a large fire in the forest SE of the city, where #Russian shelling has either caused a forest fire or the defenders of Bobrove are being struck by concentrated artillery. pic.twitter.com/gbkfGOLX88— OSINT Aggregator (@AggregateOsint) May 19, 2022
#Lyman Update - No confirmed changes in terrain today. The #Ukrainian troops in Yarova do not appear to have withdrawn yet but are under pressure to do so. There was intense shelling, as indicated by #NASA FIRMS data, along the defensive lines in the forests to the N of the town. pic.twitter.com/syFhTGJVE5— OSINT Aggregator (@AggregateOsint) May 19, 2022
#Russian troops are focusing on eliminating #Ukrainian resistance on the N side of the Donets River, securing flanks & defensive lines before the assault on Lyman. #RUAF continues to shell the town & prepare for the assault. #UAF has been preparing for this assault for weeks. pic.twitter.com/FQI1Ra1mkk— OSINT Aggregator (@AggregateOsint) May 19, 2022
#Kharkiv Axis - #Ukrainian forces continued their counteroffensive around Kharkiv city and retook the village of Dementiivka today. #Russian forces attempted an assault on Ternova, which was recently liberated by #Ukraine, but were repelled by #Ukrainian troops. pic.twitter.com/83ZRQeEval— OSINT Aggregator (@AggregateOsint) May 19, 2022
#Russian forces are fighting harder to retain territory N of Kharkiv. It appears that #Russia is trying to maintain a specific 25mi/40km buffer between #Ukrainian troops and the S side of #Belgorod, which is roughly shown in the red circle on the map below. pic.twitter.com/P99igFadEL— OSINT Aggregator (@AggregateOsint) May 19, 2022

Uznávaný americký historik Timothy Snyder tvrdě kritizuje snahu přimět Ukrajinu k uzavření míru s Ruskem za cenu územních ústupků, které by ruskému agresorovi umožnily z konfliktu vycouvat a oznámit částečné vítězství. „I když bude Putin poražen, stačí mu v televizi vyhlásit vítězství a Rusové mu uvěří, nebo to budou předstírat. K tomu naši pomoc nepotřebuje,“ napsal.
Unijní trio Německa, Francie a Itálie se i přes ukrajinské úspěchy na frontě dál pokouší dotlačit vládu v Kyjevě k jednacímu stolu a přimět ji přistoupit na nějaké územní ústupky, které by Rusku umožnily z konfliktu vycouvat a oznámit částečné vítězství. Podle zdrojů zahraničního portálu Politico například nedávno francouzský prezident Emmanuel Macron varoval před „ponížením“ Ruska.
