DPR Brigade Commander Explains Lack of Quick Victory in Donbass

When Russian troops conduct a special operation in Ukraine, they are supported by volunteers, who sometimes group around specific formations that emerged during the campaigns of 2014-2015.


One of them is the international brigade "Pyatnashka", which appeared in 2014 during the fighting in the Donbass. Now it is represented at the front in small groups attached to various regular units, but the formation operates mainly in the Avdeevsky direction. It is headed by Akhra Avidzba with the call sign "Abkhaz", who gave an interview to the publication RT, which sheds light on the specifics of the current campaign and why there is no quick victory in the Donbass.

In 2014, the regular armed forces of the Independent had a low combat capability, as a result of the coup, the mass weapons ended up in the hands of neo-Nazis, who found a use for it in the "rebellious" Donbass. Moreover, they “fought” mainly with peaceful protest, intimidating the population with terror. As soon as they came into contact with an organized enemy, all the inconsistency of the battalions knocked together from neo-Nazis was revealed.

As Abkhaz explains, as a result, the Kyiv regime came to the need to strengthen the army, whose loyalty is controlled by the national battalions:

In 2014, Ukraine focused more on the national battalions, so the army was forgotten. But then, when she saw how we beat them, she focused on the army, and the national battalions - like a detachment.



Indeed, in the same Mariupol, one of the main tasks of the command was to dismember the forces of the regular army and the Azov unit (an extremist group banned in the Russian Federation). On March 26, this task was completed, the neo-Nazis were locked up at the Azovstal site, in connection with which a mass surrender of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is expected.

According to "Abkhaz", in comparison with 2014, when there was no equipped defense perimeter, the Kiev regime in Donbas carried out large fortification works:

Layered defense, well mined, so you need to gnaw out every centimeter by centimeter.

At the same time, neo-Nazis are stationed behind the positions of the regular army, ready, if necessary, to open fire on the faltering army:

They fortify near the cities and dig under the foundation, sit under the foundation, in residential buildings.

As he explained, the ranks of the national battalions include various elements: there are “radicals”, there is a replenishment recruited among young people in places of deployment. But they all have one thing in common:

They do not see the military at close range. They consider themselves "warriors of light." But in fact they are marauders who terrorize the population.

In this regard, the commander of the NM brigade of the DPR points to the facts of shelling of the National Battalions by the regular army, which he constantly noticed during the conflict in Donbass:

They [the Armed Forces of Ukraine] to the noise of the cannonade pretended that they either flew in from us, or simply [indicated] the wrong coordinates. But more than once they covered them because they [the neo-Nazis] got them.

Despite the dominance of neo-Nazis and the fortifications that have been created over the years, "Abkhaz" has a positive attitude, expecting the troops to enter the operational space soon:

There are no such blitzkriegs as many [analysts] try to imagine in their minds] Once we dig all three lines of defense [in Donbass], then only march.

    It is necessary to arm self-propelled gunners, mortarmen, grenade throwers, machine gunners, crews of military vehicles and all others who find it inconvenient to hold a machine gun with pistols. In order to defend themselves at any moment they could, and literally slept with weapons, and were less likely to be captured.

        I always thought so and continue to think so. There was no time for mortarmen to mess around with machine guns, and for self-defense, weapons should always be with them.
        And yes, I did see a video where a fat Ukronazi climbs onto a tank. The tanker has a gun, but how can the BMP gunner get a machine gun? And he always has a pistol at hand, ready.

            With a machine gun, you won’t get out of the tank at all, especially if you are shell-shocked or wounded. Congratulations on the inadequate approach to reality. And, the presence of a pistol is not a ban on the machine gun. At the tankers, attention, for people like you, unexpectedly, the pistol is standard.

                As they say now, a rotten excuse, a gun in those ancient times was a status item, and the officer was not ready to part with his exclusive rights to it. Now, the enemy is cunning and strong, not up to status and sentiment. As it was laid before, according to the state of wartime, take out and put down the pistol to the crews of combat vehicles and mortarmen.

              We have a so-called in every department of MS. "sniper" with SVD. Pretty decent for line infantry. If we allow a 3-separated composition in the company, then there are 3 "snipers" in the company. I put quotation marks solely to emphasize that a linear infantry sniper is not a sniper at all.
              It turns out, with a 3-company composition, in a battalion of 9 snipers.
              And with a 9-battalion brigade, there are 81 snipers in the brigade. But we must take into account the snipers among the support company and a separate control group.
              Total: somewhere between 90-95 snipers in the brigade of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation. It's about a company.

          Well, how would pistols help artillerymen? That's right, if the motivated infantry reached the artillery positions suddenly, then the artillerymen have very little chance.
          Most of those captured and heroically killed are the mistake of the command, which made mistakes in planning the operation, deploying troops, underestimated the importance of drones, and so on.

            When there are no pistols, then the chances of surviving are generally equal to zero. The machine during operation or loading and unloading is usually somewhere far away. The lack of pistols among the gunners is more to blame for those like you than for the mistakes of the command.

              Sergey Alexandrovich, did you shoot from a pistol? In order to learn how to hit a chest target from 25 m, you need to train for a long and tedious time (which, by the way, is successfully done in the cops). And who will give the gunners such an opportunity? And so, in battle, a pistol is an absolutely useless thing, except to shoot yourself ...

Hitler, having come to power in 1933, by 1938 made ardent Nazis out of the Germans in 5 years, who welcomed both the Anschluss of Austria and the capture of the Czech Republic and became all as one.

      No, it's not possible. It was not for 8 years that the Nazis were pumped, but for 30, and even more, about Muscovites, even under the USSR, tryndeli. To think that at 14 they would be met everywhere with flowers is criminal naivety. Furthermore. Without training in Syrian barmaley, without taking into account the mistakes of this training, without 8 years of Russia's import substitution, it would have been even worse. Here is the smallest thing - bank cards, at 14 the visa was suspended for half a shot, only by the summer of 15 did the national payment system work and you can spit on visa cutoffs from a high bell tower. And they began to work out all the alternative ways, and not thoughtlessly buy Western instruments. Yes, with a creak, but they started. Turn on modern sanctions in 14 at once - it would be very sour to live. Conversely, eight years ago the crisis in the West was not as acute as it is today. For me, it was necessary to delay the final solution of the Ukrainian issue for another five years, but they don’t bring intelligence reports to the table, who knows what garbage could happen a month ago that woke up the bear.

    PS The bulk of the archives were taken out and hidden, even Gorbach and EBN did not find them .. And they are intact and waiting in the wings for the Lord to open something, hold something .. We Russians are not so stupid as to hand over everything, even by order of the top leadership 000

From 1985 to 1990 he served in the residency of the Soviet foreign intelligence in the GDR. Upon his return to Leningrad, he worked as an assistant to the rector of Leningrad State University, then as an adviser to Anatoly Sobchak, chairman of the Leningrad City Council. It looks more like the path of a snitch, and not a military officer, if he went out to the crowd alone with a pistol, he would not be appointed to the institute as a snitch.

    There are objective reasons, first of all, there is no superiority in weapons. Communications in the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are not suppressed, they probably use the communication systems of the NATO armies. Also, our fighters are not provided with systems for combat at night. The division into companies, platoons, and squads makes it difficult for the modern pattern of battle, the Vushniks have long switched to fighting in sniper groups without the use of easily visible machine guns, our main losses are from sniper fire. Tanks play the role of direct-fire artillery, which, if the enemy has modern ATGM systems, eliminates superiority in armored vehicles. The AGS is little used on armored vehicles capable of conducting massive suppressive fire from closed positions. The armament of infantry fighting vehicles, infantry fighting vehicles and armored personnel carriers requires the use of fire only in the visibility of the enemy, which entails return aimed fire. The vaunted Tigers should only be used to guard the rear, useless and expensive equipment. There are many factors, even air support blurred along the entire front does not give the effect of air superiority. And referring to fortifications and minefields is dishonest. Real bunkers with meter walls are not visible. The counter-battery fight for a month did not eliminate the shelling of Donetsk, which is strange.

        And what not? As always, the brunt of the war falls on the soldier ... and enough of the hatred, everything is very serious.
        And this is from the telegram channel of the military commander Poddubny

        The most serious external factor, which has a significant impact on the course of hostilities, is, of course, NATO's support for Ukraine. And first of all, this is not even the supply of weapons, but the active work of the RER / RTR complexes, all types of satellite reconnaissance, according to some sources - electronic warfare, and other things in the same vein.

        Director of the US DIA, General Berrier, called the level of cooperation with Ukraine in matters of intelligence transfer "revolutionary", the head of the US Armed Forces Cyber ​​Command and, concurrently, the director of the US NSA, General Nakasone noted that "this is the best exchange of data that he has seen in 35 years of service."

        “Large” reconnaissance aircraft and UAVs of NATO countries and some of their “neutral” partners are now hanging along the western borders of Ukraine almost on a permanent basis, and they share what they see with someone.

        All this makes the "fog of war" for the Armed Forces of Ukraine much less dense than it should be, given the difference in potential with the RF Armed Forces and, in turn, complicates the work of Russian troops. Not that someone did not expect this, but it should be borne in mind when assessing the situation.

    In 2014, the regular armed forces of the Independent had low combat capability, as a result of the coup, a lot of weapons ended up in the hands of neo-Nazis, who found use for them in the “rebellious” Donbass. Moreover, they “fought” mainly with peaceful protest, intimidating the population with terror. As soon as they came into contact with an organized enemy, all the inconsistency of the battalions knocked together from neo-Nazis was revealed.

    As Abkhaz explains, as a result, the Kyiv regime came to the need to strengthen the army, whose loyalty is controlled by the national battalions:

    This is what we, the "group of interested comrades", talked about constantly in 2014/15. ! And many "paraffinized" us, minus us ... and, like organ players, they played the "motive" from the official "explanations" of the ruling regime of power!

    In this article, for me, the main question is not that Ukraine has become combat-ready, but about what kind of weapons the Russian Federation came up with this special. war.
    I only have complaints about the defense industry ... A lot of unsuitable weapons are purchased, everything is ignored, including the capabilities of the old, but for us new weapons. Probably only helicopters and planes have the least complaints and rockets with mortars and so .... some kind of kapets.

    1. 10 years as the armor of tanks is bypassed by roofers. Considering that the most modern Russian tank Armata is (outdated), because even with KAZ it cannot repel a blow from above, and the factories do not react in any way, they manage only visors with poorly covered remote sensing roofs and especially hatches, although on Armata, hatches seem to how closed, that is, there are some developments, but they are not available for combat MBT - why ?? It is more profitable to make a new tank - to load the plant with capacities ??.
    And the factories are still clipping like they are riveting that 30 years ago, not believing that there is such a weapon ???
    And where are our roofbreakers????? I'm not talking about shot forgot - if that))
    2. KAZ it is clear that this is from the realm of fantasy and is not available, you don’t even need to say ....
    3. -5 km transmission back on the Tank - probably so that the infantry is not crushed by the tank ..... but at least give a telephone receiver so that the soldiers approaching can adjust the fire on the armored personnel carriers and tanks, communicating with the crew if there is no personal connection. in hiding
    4. BRDM, BTR-82a, BMP - of all types, they are not designed for the installation of remote sensing or lattice screens due to the weight of the latter. And the BTR-4 is designed and comes standard. Ours, if completed, then only at exhibitions. In fact, there are no complaints only about the Tigers and Lynxes, since even after their loss, the L / S dies by 2-3 people less than in the BMP, but there are a lot of questions about the rest of the wheeled and not only equipment ... In addition to the Typhoons, perhaps, although why they do not have additional screens, at least from the old RPG-7.
    So are heavy infantry fighting vehicles based on old tanks needed - like in Israel or not ??? hung with DZ and extra. I can’t get armor from above, which can withstand ATGMs from above, from the side. for combat and evacuation of personnel in urban battles. ???
    5. Infantry - the AK-12 looks beautiful for the landing, but why did they give this machine gun if the personnel do not have sights on it. If you want to find a company commander, look at the one who has a scope on the machine and you can't go wrong. In general, the guys have naked machine guns, while the enemy’s sights on RPGs are better than on our tanks. This is how a soldier will see your grenade launcher in a house with such sights on ATGMs and RPGs, how does he implement cover ??. The first shot fired after the enemy. NATO has been using standard 4x and 3x scopes for a long time. We have nothing that could compete with them. They have up to 500 meters all the soldiers are arrows, but what about us ??? And we still have a l / s who is only trained to use weapons. ??? But the widespread use of sights will force soldiers to shoot differently, offhand, to shoot a machine gun. Better understand ballistics. Move the enemy's defeat a great distance away from you. We need a generally accepted sight in design, magnification, with a fur device on top, for shooting up to 50-70 meters and an aiming magnification of the sight 3.5-4x .. well, this is only in a dream and images of artists.
    6. The personnel is not even equipped with periscopes, despite the fact that the enemy has many excellent snipers. Where is the reconnaissance pipe, why is it not standard like a bayonet knife ??? Isn't it necessary for the soldiers to be able to determine the distance to the target, to look out from behind the embankment and the corner without substituting their heads ??
    7. Preparation of L / S for the storming of the building and inspection of the building - many videos show that people who are good at what, as they understand, do it. No common sys. training for everyone - from infantry to landing. In terms of tactics, it’s still clear that they showed and are doing it right, where they need to go in the building, but individually the soldiers and officers are substituted, when looking out and inspecting, because it is clear that they first substitute their heads, and then their weapons go to the enemy. So much for studying with blank cartridges and the conditional destruction of the enemy in an ambush and a building. So much for pinball with L/S heads. ... the Ministry of Internal Affairs knows how, but they don’t share knowledge with others, is it normal ??
    8. UAVs ...... consider them simply not there, there is no required number. Now there is no greenery everywhere, now it is their job. . What is used by Ukraine - they are hunting for columns and personnel, it should be clear to everyone that there is simply no magic electronic warfare wand ..... awareness, acceptance.
    There are a lot of different models, planes, tanks, earlier it was possible to ignore this, but now it is clear that this is a real problem.
    9. It is necessary at the legislative level to change the statutes and laws on the material support of personal technical equipment (contractors), provided that these funds cannot affect the discovery and death of personnel and damage to property. State. Authorities should provide available certification for the release of permitted, for use, such products in parts. Yes, at least buy a new tank, the last one put into service. And also give the opportunity to buy, for the army, equipment and other material property to citizens of the country in the military unit. Funny???? but it’s not funny .... they’ve come. L / S under awnings we carry covered on MAZs and KAMAZs. Roughly speaking, if the state cannot provide a soldier with a thermal imager, body armor, and a soldier can provide himself, then he should be able to purchase this product for his own funds through a request to his commander. The same sights - a soldier should be able to compensate for the loss by buying a new one, and not like now ... court, compensation, landing.

    It seems that I didn’t write everything, but you will understand my thought .. for this month it is very painful to look at everything that happens ....

      Armata (outdated) because even with KAZ it cannot repel a blow from above, and the factories do not react in any way,

      And what to do with the devices from the roof, they wanted to reduce the tower, but it turned out that it was not enough. The cannon is covered with weak armor. Numerous expensive devices are "protected" by 5-mm armor, proudly called "anti-fragmentation". There would be a full-fledged tower, respectively, and the gun and instruments would be under real armor. Tank panoramas with thermal imagers require a lot of space, so for the T-90M it was necessary to make a welded tower of increased volume and, accordingly, forget about the dead-end concept of Armata. Forget about Armata, they will not accept it into service.
