Ukrainian Armed Forces bring the last strategic reserves into battle

113

The Ukrainian military is faced with the need to organize the defense of the vast border of the country. The offensive of the troops of the Russian Federation and the Republic of Donbass in many directions instantly fettered most of the forces of the independent.


At the moment, some of the formations stationed in the front-line regions are not yet participating in the battles, but they cannot be removed from their positions, as this is fraught with the loss of control over large cities practically without a fight. There remains the possibility of an offensive by troops from the territory of Belarus to western Ukraine, which also does not allow the removal of the brigades located here from the northern direction.

In fact, the only strategic reserve of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was two formations located in the southwestern part of the country - the 128th and 10th separate mountain assault brigades. The 128th brigade is stationed in the Transcarpathian region on the border with Hungary and Slovakia, the 10th brigade is deployed in the Chernivtsi region on the cordon with Romania and Moldova.

The 128th brigade (while still an infantry brigade) took an active part in the war in eastern Ukraine. In 2014 - in the Luhansk region, in the area of ​​Lysichansk, Severodonetsk and Rubizhne; in 2015 - in the battles near Debaltseve and near Sanzharovka. The 10th Infantry Brigade was also involved in the battles in the Donbass - “though not for its intended purpose, but as ordinary infantry,” as explained on the website of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense.



The Armed Forces of Ukraine planned to reorganize, making the 10th brigade a full-fledged formation of mountain troops, and transferring the 128th brigade to the category of mechanized.

Most of the personnel of the two mountain assault brigades have never even been in the mountains, not to mention systematic training. There is no specialized mountain equipment and clothing

- says the website of the military department.

However, these intentions are unlikely to come true - both formations actually entered the battle as linear infantry. After the start of the special operation of Russia, they began to appear in the reports of the Ministry of Defense of the Independent this month: the 128th Guards Rifle Brigade - March 2, the 10th - today, the 13th. Thus, now we can say that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have brought the last strategic reserves into battle.

The telegram channel "Shield of Russia" reports on the order of the President of Ukraine to transfer the 128th and 10th brigades from their bases in the west of the country to the east of Kyiv in order to contain the offensive outburst of the Russian Armed Forces. This order can be confirmed in view of its obvious secrecy only on the basis of the facts of the direct participation of the personnel of these brigades in the clashes - and they were voiced by the independent military department itself.

    Their main reserves are fleeing to Russia. Here is the danger.
    The Russian special services have already begun to catch runaway members of the national battalions in the Russian regions, and this is just the beginning. Experts believe that as the forces of the DPR, LPR and the Russian army advance, militants will massively try to get to Russia in order to get lost there and avoid punishment. What awaits the nationalists, who will be found by counterintelligence in the country, was sorted out by Izvestia.


    Distinguishing a Right Sector militant from the same refugee from Donbass is not an easy task - it is only in positions that extremists speak exclusively in their native language, and when necessary, they easily switch to Russian. The impossibility at first glance to distinguish an extremist from a civilian becomes a certain problem for security - deserters and saboteurs from the national battalions are trying and will continue to try to lie low in the regions of Russia and Belarus.

    FSB operatives detained a member of the national battalion who fled from Ukraine in the Rostov region. The young man participated in the hostilities under the call sign "Cook". Chevrons of the Right Sector organization banned in Russia, as well as a small amount of drugs, were found on him.


    .Approximately at the same time, a Ukrainian citizen born in 1959 was detained on the territory of the Republic of Crimea. According to the FSB, he was a member of the illegal armed group "Crimean Tatar Battalion named after. Noman Chelebidzhikhan". In 2015, the man joined the ranks of a gang stationed in the Kherson region.

    “He, under the guidance of instructors from the nationalist battalions, underwent special tactical and fire training, and in November of the same year he participated in the economic and energy blockade of the peninsula,” the National Anti-Terrorism Committee said in a statement.



    . Izvestia's source, close to law enforcement agencies and familiar with the situation in the region of the military special operation, suggests that extremists will start massively trying to get out of the encirclement under the guise of civilians towards Russia as the forces of the DPR, LPR, and the RF Armed Forces succeed.

    “At some point, this may become a problem for the border regions of Russia. Given that the offer to purchase weapons freely distributed to the population of Ukraine is already on the Web. But profile specialists are working in this direction, competent structures have been reinforced by operatives from other regions of Russia, ”Izvestia’s interlocutor explained.

      Yeah! Work FSB and work! And the people of Russia need to be vigilant. Maybe you should not immediately let "the people"? And somewhere first to arrange a check? After all, they will rush to relatives, and there are many of them in Russia. And what will win? A sense of justice or family ties?

        Yes, it probably still makes sense to create a kind of "sumps" or "filtration points" in the main directions - after all, ours tirelessly say that all documents are collected and filed, there is a "Case by number ..." for each Nazi.

          You shouldn't do stupid things. For 30 years, the Ukrainian people have suffered so much from the Nazis that they have been brainwashed.
          It is much easier to additionally strain the police and district police at the refugee accommodation sites. You can give them reinforcements, but it’s not all the time for them to catch homeless people and cover stalls.
          Verification is actually quite simple, especially if the refugees are from the same region and must know each other.

      This can and will become a problem for all regions of Russia, because their hatred and thirst for revenge will not go anywhere. With the help of the Internet, they are very easy to coordinate and direct, so that terrorist attacks will soon become permanent. All this is very bad, because the FSB is cool, but not the KGB even once. Hoping for the best...

          It's not about the reports, but about the fact that they were pulled into the light. With all the beautiful chevrons and other garbage. This means that they will move around, engage in battles and have ceased to be a reserve for which you need to be distracted. Two brigades can change the situation only locally in combat formations. But being in reserve, they greatly interfere with planning. So this is good news.

            In the west of Ukraine, now other brigades are being hastily formed from those mobilized, at the same Yavorinsky training ground. It is clear that in terms of their combat qualities they will be much worse than these, but nevertheless this factor should not be dropped

              Something mod tells me that they will not be thrown into battle. The Armed Forces of Ukraine as a structure ceased to exist on the first day. This is not a system. This is a crowd that is controlled only locally. There is no management, supply, mobilization has failed completely. With such a mobilization potential, they cannot even put a hundred thousand soldiers under arms. As young people like to say, this is a fiasco bro. Of course, you still have to poke around. But I repeat the army they no longer have. There are separate formations and units that are guided by old orders and improvise if possible. A striking example is Nikolaevsk and their idiotic outing last night. How did Kim say them?) Oh, you are so with us. Fight without rules) These senile shelling of Donetsk. Who are they hitting? There is no front. There is no grouping. This is hysteria. Malice. Desire to take a bite.

      You are either wrong, or you do not mean the Russian army.
      Brigade - formation, the smallest tactical formation in the armed forces, which is an intermediate link between a division and a regiment.
      Military unit - In the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation -
      the lowest administrative military formation in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, other troops and bodies.
      Military units include:
      brigades that do not have subordinate military units, and special-purpose centers equated to them;
      all regiments and special forces equated to them;
      all ships of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd ranks;
      separate battalions (divisions, squadrons);
      separate companies and border outposts equated to them.

        Border outposts are not separate units. They are part of the border detachments. It is the border detachments that are the military units in the border troops. In addition, the border outposts can be subordinate to the border commandant's offices or directly to the command of the detachment.

      Not much is left in Russia either.
      Now they are transferring marines from the Far East.

      Well, why Alexey. The very dynamics of the operation shows that the "last battalion", "a straw capable of breaking a camel's back" is not yet close. The people who command the Soviet school there and see and understand everything no worse than their opponents hi

    Of course, it’s easy to scoff, but the truth is that mostly Russians are fighting on both sides. Some do not want the neighboring country to continue to spoil Russia, others have been thoroughly brainwashed, and they believe that they are fighting for the whole world that is with them, that they can easily turn the tide, that help is close ... And, some just fight in Russian, gritting their teeth to the last, perhaps against their former relatives, or even classmates ...

        The longer the Armed Forces of Ukraine fight, the more the decrease in personnel units of fuel and lubricants equipment will affect. Now they sit around the cities and scribble victorious tweets. But we all know that wars are not won by defense. They don’t have a MOB reserve, they won’t be able to create new units from scratch. All experienced will be knocked out. Total air supremacy will not allow them to organize themselves. Every city will be isolated and taken. There are no rears, and without a rear, it is not realistic to fight. What is happening now is a mixture of the Anglo-Boer war 2 world. Yes, we also have many problems where without it, but no one has carried out such operations for a very long time! There will be conclusions, there will be changes. As in any war, the troops will become accustomed to become more confident from city to city. And the isolated ASU will not receive it and every time it will be like the first time. Moreover, it is very important for whom the battlefield remains. Yes, everyone couldn’t turn it around quickly, but the further the worse for the VSU, now they will end up with the eastern group of the VSU to free many fired well-coordinated units.

    Yeah! Work FSB and work! And the people of Russia need to be vigilant. Maybe you should not immediately let "the people"? And somewhere first to arrange a check? After all, they will rush to relatives, and there are many of them in Russia. And what will win? A sense of justice or family ties?

    There is no doubt that even in the 70s they would win, they continued to catch Bandera and forest brothers, who were 30 years old, relatives hid in caches. And they still waited for the "moment of glory" during the collapse of the Union.

    128th Brigade (while still an infantry) took an active part in the war in eastern Ukraine. In 2014 - in the Luhansk region, in the area of ​​Lysichansk, Severodonetsk and Rubizhne; in 2015 - in the battles near Debaltseve and near Sanzharovka.

    Not at all. 128th brigade in 2014-2015 was gpbr.
    WIKI:
    On December 1, 2004, the 128th division, on the basis of the Directive of the Minister of Defense of Ukraine dated 18.06.2004/128/2012, was reorganized into the 34th separate mechanized brigade with the preservation of all honorary titles and awards. At the end of 128, it was reorganized into the XNUMXth separate mountain infantry Turkestan-Transcarpathian twice Red Banner brigade. A few months later, she was returned to the previous number - XNUMX.

    The brigade had only one gpb, following the logic of the Ukrainians, and the 36th brigade of the Ukrainian Navy (now the 126th brigade of the KChF) in the Crimea should also be mountainous (it also included one gpb) and where did the "ancient Sumerians" take such a name from the mining assault, neither in the SA, nor in NATO and other imperialists, there are no such brigades ....
    Thus, now we can say that the Armed Forces of Ukraine have brought the last strategic reserves into battle.

    Not at all. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have a bunch of unused air and abr ​​....
    In the cities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, "stationary" maintenance brigades, national battalions and broken formations of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with a minimum number of VT and towed PA .....
    The remaining combat-ready units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the surviving tanks, infantry fighting vehicles, SG of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be grouped into separate tactical bottalion groups and will retreat to the West, forming a defense line together with NATO troops ....
    The fate of the remnants of the formations and units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the TO are not of interest to the empirialists, and the l / s of the national battalions and forces of the Special Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will dissolve among the civilian population, and caches with weapons are probably already being made today in the territories of Ukraine liberated by us ....
    After the end of the RF Armed Forces operations in Ukraine, a "rail" war will begin, and taking into account the fact that 3 million Ukrainians working in the Russian Federation will have nowhere to return, terrorist attacks will also begin in the Russian Federation ....
