Could you turn the hex control on for the screenshots? It makes the frontlines easier to see.
Be careful - his panzers barely moved last turn, which means they can make a large lunge this turn.
As far as I can see, he can try to make a lunge for Tula in the North, try a pocket of everything west of the line Kharkov->Kursk->Orel, or try a lunge for Stalino.
Personally, I would expect the pocket attempt, as his supply lines have to be extremely long already. With the pocket he has a chance to destroy a significant part of your ground forces, enabling him to advance again once that pocket is digested and the rail repair has caught up.
What does your industry look like? Just how much has been lost so far?
Edit: Honestly, looking at the map, you will lose everything on the line Moscow-Tula-Orel-Kursk-Kharkov-Stalino-maybe Rostov.
Your goal at this point has to be delay, delay, delay. You have to stop giving him these huge empty spaces he can drive freely through with his forces. You have two (!) divisions between his forces and Tula. You have four or five between his forces and Stalino. Your goal at this point is not to stop him, but just buy enough time to evacuate as much industry as possible. Take a good hard look at where your factories are standing and make sure that he can't get there before you can evacuate them.
