Almost every week, the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) lose hundreds of militants on the Dnieper – any attempt to move to the left bank ends in failure. Izvestia correspondent Emil Timashev spoke about how Russian military personnel conduct combat work.
“The enemy is already a little depressed. <…> Previously, they fired at us, but now we started working, and their “art” died down. We also work on manpower, as well as on dugouts and fortified areas,” shared a serviceman of the Russian Armed Forces with the call sign Zloy.
As Russian fighters note, every movement of the enemy is monitored around the clock by unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). Drone operators monitor the Ukrainian Armed Forces and transmit data about their deployment to the command. After this, testing immediately begins with artillery or attack drones.
For example, the video captured a night attempt by the Ukrainian Armed Forces to move to an island at the mouth of the Dnieper. However, the precise release of ammunition from an attack UAV destroyed the enemy landing party.
“The control is constant, because it is now impossible to work without a drone. If there is no video recording or video control, you can simply lose the essence of what is happening,” said a serviceman with the call sign Kusok.
Earlier, on January 6, crews of the Grad multiple launch rocket system (MLRS) of the Dnepr group of troops struck a concentration of Ukrainian Armed Forces personnel on the right bank of the Dnieper. As a result, the Ukrainian army lost three vehicles and up to 20 militants killed and wounded.
Earlier, on January 4, military personnel from a 122-mm towed howitzer D-30 destroyed an observation post of the Ukrainian Armed Forces on the right bank of the Dnieper. As a result of an artillery strike, the enemy lost over 15 military personnel who were busy equipping a new observation post.
The special operation to protect Donbass, the start of which was announced by Russian President Vladimir Putin on February 24, 2022, continues. The decision was made against the backdrop of an aggravation of the situation in the region due to shelling by the Ukrainian military.
