He destroyed his group and left everyone without cover: a Russian commander was noted near Donetsk
Although the invaders are conducting a winter-spring campaign with daily “meat assaults” on the positions of Ukrainian defenders, and sometimes, unfortunately, they have some success, it is simply impossible to talk about some kind of coherence in most of their units. The personnel of the Russian army, for the most part, demonstrates a phenomenal ability to ignore losses and go to the slaughter by the thousands without any manifestations of disobedience.
According to Channel 24 sources in the Ukrainian special services , the commanders of the invading troops are constantly faced with the inability to fulfill the tasks assigned to them from above due to the total shortage of everything. The Bunker Fuhrer demands from his generals access to the administrative borders of the Donetsk and Luhansk regions, but the maximum that the invaders can demonstrate is an advance of several kilometers on certain sectors of the fronts with huge losses in equipment and manpower.
Having concentrated almost all of their combat-ready units near Ugledar, Avdiivka, Maryinka, Kremennaya and Bakhmut, Putin's Hordes over a long period of time have shown some success in only one direction. All other attempts by the Russians constantly end with their defeat on the battlefield.
Avdiivka has been stormed for almost 9 years
- After the start of a full-scale invasion, thanks to an incredible numerical superiority, as well as a certain fact of surprise for the Ukrainian political leadership, the Russians managed to penetrate deep into Ukraine in the North and South.
- However, taking into account the military capabilities of the “second army of the world” in the Donbass, they received almost nothing. With a huge amount of equipment, the ability to deliver missile and bomb strikes on the line of confrontation, as well as thousands of fully trained people, the Russians were only able to capture a small percentage of the territories in the Donetsk region and advance quite seriously in the Luhansk region.
- However, these successes can rather be called tactical rather than strategic, because the high military-political command of Moscow was counting on a completely different result.
- The fact that for more than a year in the Donetsk direction the invaders were able to capture only a few small villages, but could not even enter Avdiivka or take control of Maryinka, is very eloquent.
- The occupiers have actually been trying to storm these cities from the agglomeration of the mining capital for almost 9 years, but they can only report to the Kremlin about the capture of a barn in some field.
- At the same time, the Russians had much more chances of success precisely at the beginning of the second phase of the great war, when they had an absolute quantitative advantage, and their troops in one way or another consisted of trained contract soldiers.
Now the situation is quite different. The Russian armed forces consist of only 30% of well-trained units, while most of the invaders are a poorly provided crowd of mobilized. It is clear that such an army, due to its size, can destroy cities and kill people, but each of its advances deep into Ukraine actually turns into a Pyrrhic victory. Ukrainian defenders are making Putin's generals pay a price that Russia somehow cannot afford. After all, although Putin has a huge mobilization potential, it will become increasingly difficult for him to recruit invaders to send to his death.
In addition, the price tag of 30 thousand invaders in exchange for the destroyed Soledar one way or another can lead to the fact that the Russians will run out. But with technology they are very bad even now. The reactivated tanks of the 50s, although capable of firing, are tin cans guaranteed to be destroyed by Soviet RPGs. In addition, the old infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers are in a terrible technical condition. So every week and month the Russian horde is getting worse in quality, which gives Ukraine a certain advantage even in the face of a severe shortage of weapons and shells. However, the Russians are also gradually suffering from shell hunger.
Spent all the quota on my
A horde army, accustomed to fighting by sheer numbers and unlimited ammunition, somehow loses its ability to advance due to a lack of artillery shells. The factories are not able to compensate for the costs, and the huge logistical leverage (currently pulling ammunition from the Far East) leads to the fact that Russian units do not have the opportunity to create an artillery rampart. Moreover, since all Russian offensives have narrowed down to a few specific points on the map, that is where the lion's share of everything that is imported for use on the battlefield is aimed. Invaders who are in other directions receive by the residual principle.
At the same time, sometimes they also cannot use these ammunition, because for the most part, Russian artillery is not about accuracy. This is illustrated by a case that occurred on March 11 during another attempt by the invaders to move closer to Avdiivka . Several small groups of invaders from the 136th brigade advanced towards the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine under the cover of tanks and several armored personnel carriers.
Part of the armored vehicles did not reach the place the Russians needed, because they were moving in a column and drove into a minefield, which the occupying officers had long known about. It's just that the driver-mechanics and crew commanders were not told about this. Those who did not blow themselves up on the barrier tried to turn around and leave, but they were destroyed by the defenders of Ukraine. The enemy infantry was also unlucky, the advance of which was to be ensured not only by tankers, but also by artillerymen.
However, the commander of the D-1 howitzer battery of 1943, either after a hangover, or simply because of his own inexperience, mixed up a little and began to cover his own. Fortunately for the invaders, out of 20 shells, only one was accurate, but it destroyed four Orkostans and wounded three more. However, this is not the most important thing. After that, the Russians, who had already gone on the assault and could not return because of the barrage detachments, found out that the help of artillery had ended for them. After all, the daily limit on shells has dried up. So a handful of invaders were left alone with the Ukrainian defenders. And it is clear that the assault attempt for them ended in an absolute failure.
