APU tankers in the ATO zone passed an exam on offensive combat

The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine published a video of the passage of "tests" by tankers in the so-called "ATO" zone. At the same time, the very concept of an “anti-terrorist operation” looks strange, to say the least, given the fact that the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine once again did not dare to recognize the LDNR as “terrorist organizations”. In other words, there is a paradoxical situation against the background of the Ukrainian “logic”: there are no terrorists, and the antiterrorist operation is underway. Against whom in this case?

During the "tests" in the "ATO" zone, the tankers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine worked by firing regular projectiles under conditions that, remarkably, not only defensive but also offensive combat.

The statement of the deputy commander is given. tank Brigades of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Lieutenant Colonel Evgeny Mezhevikin:
We train personnel on how to fight in these conditions. First, the theory, without which nowhere, because the main burden - in practice. Only the best crews are allowed to pass the final tests.

      They will burn in the field and between houses in the villages. They don’t have trophies, the tanks are old, even with dz and az they will break through five points. And there is no desire to burn any of the tankers. At the training ground and a disabled king.

    Now they are not veterans and participants in the ATO, but killers of their own civilian population, as was originally the case. Only now they themselves have confirmed this.

    Judging by the photo, these are Bulat tanks. Last fall, due to numerous breakdowns, all Bulat were taken out of combat units and sent to the factory for repair. This means that they have already returned to duty and are undergoing combat training.

    Only the best crews are allowed to pass the final tests.
    And how many of these have you got? And the rest are probably on foot by machine training.

    --- "Only the best crews are allowed to pass the final tests." - What do they have, passing exams on a competitive basis? And on the video there is a test (exam) - lag in a straight line and a shot to nowhere? Cool.

      Another performance of the anthem before the shot is not heard on the video, but this is a prerequisite.

    someone didn’t read everything to the end ...
    I already wrote that now the transition to the concept of the LPR and the DPR is the "occupation administration". From anti-terrorist operation depart. "Aggression, occupation" -that is what BP goes to.
    The guys are training. On numerous training videos of warriors ORDILO - a few training videos of Ukrainian tank crews. Information must be impartial. And the “fascists / terrorists" of the "junta and pro-Russian militants" will be left for the yellow press.

      We don’t mind that you switch to other concepts. Only if the concepts are spoken, then somehow the Ukrainian tankers are out of control riding Soviet tanks and eagerly praising themselves in the Russian aggressor language. And, for the impartiality of the plot, at least they called the local district police officer so that he would draw up a protocol on the intercessor of commander Eugen for public disrespect for the Ukrainian language, which your government equates as abuse of state symbols (entails criminal liability) crying

    Hopefully the evacuation from the burning tank also worked out, like jogging over rough terrain.
