In the American press: the Ukrainian military are forced not to make fires in the trenches, from which they freeze

With the onset of winter, the cold became a serious problem for the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The American press told why, at the same time, the Ukrainian military do not make fires in the trenches and freeze.


Isabel Khurshudyan, columnist for The Washington Post (USA), touched on this topic in her article.

According to her, the military personnel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine prefer to endure the cold without making fires, so as not to find themselves in front of the units of the Russian Armed Forces when their positions are nearby.

Soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are very close to the Russian military and are afraid to make fire because of the risk of revealing their location

- the journalist explains.

Mrs. Khurshudyan came to this conclusion after her visit to the positions of the 5th Slobozhansky brigade of the National Guard of Ukraine in the Kremennaya region (LPR). She writes that the AFU militants sleep in the open air “in their coats”, meaning, apparently, outerwear, and cover themselves with light sleeping bags.

In addition, the Ukrainian military, according to Khurshudyan, are experiencing other difficulties. They are worried about the constant shelling of Russian artillery. Soldiers and officers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine also do not drink coffee, for which there is not enough space in their dugouts, so they can only afford tea.

The journalist in her material quotes the words of the deputy commander of the Ukrainian National Guard battalion with the call sign “Tor”, who boasts to her of the “successes” of his unit.

We pushed them back and now we just need to take advantage of their logistics routes.

- he says, meaning by "them" the Russian military.

      You might think that, unlike the Sumerians, ours are sitting in the trenches with complete comfort. They are both warm and satisfying, and coffee teas are driven from the samovar. The problems are the same. Somewhere it is better for them, somewhere for us, and so, snot to snot. That's it, they already forgot about Odessa, Kharkov and beyond, a trench war began, ala WWI, with the corresponding results.

      I don’t see a problem, no one forbids them to make fires, I would say ours allow and support, let them warm themselves, don’t die frozen.

      I completely agree with you because it is unlikely that "Ukraine" will freeze in winter, rebel and begin to fight worse. Vice versa. Its soldiers, who have already believed in their strength as a result of the autumn victories of the AFU and are fully supported by NATO, will only fight harder and harder against us, avenging the hardships that their relatives and friends in the rear are forced to bear. And they will be met only by an apathetic performance of duty, behind which many fighters and commanders have long been looming the unresolved question: "What are we doing here, if Moscow is most concerned with the implementation of" grain deals ", the unhindered pumping of ammonia through Odessa and the" price ceiling " on gas and oil supplied to numerous Western partners?

      Yes, it’s quite possible to make a fire for heating and tea and coffee in a trench.
      Normal soldiers still know how to do this, and neither smoke nor flame.
      If there is no problem, then they grow like a snowball.
      And looking at the trenches of the skakaunsky warriors, the only conclusion is that it’s too lazy to do something, and the commanders don’t kick in the guzzle and don’t bring through the snout how to make life comfortable in the trench.

      Not enough space for coffee? It's not a problem. I recommend Mrs. Khurshudyan to organize an international fundraising movement to deliver hot coffee, such as coffee to go, to the positions of the poor soldiers who cover themselves with their coats on frosty nights and who are awakened by the sound of artillery salvos of obnoxious Russians. It’s also good to secretly organize a coffee break in the trenches at ten o’clock, as is customary in all civilized countries, secretly from the Russians.

      And she also didn’t write about the fact that treacherous Russian soldiers deliberately fry onions with lard cracklings on fires, which forces Ukrainian zahisniks to stick their heads out of the trenches and sniff, as a result of which they fall under sniper fire.

    Is there not enough space for coffee or coffee is out of stock? Would you like champagne with cocoa?
    The other day, an English "expert" argued that the Ukrainian army is better prepared for winter than the Russian one, which, moreover, "does not know how to fight in winter." And they show our positions - clean, dry dugouts, something is boiling, cooking. Soldiers in normal winter uniforms, washed and combed.

    To help those who are freezing in Europe, they opened a bank account so that those who are freezing could withdraw a certain amount for heating. Just a joke came out - we opened an account for you in the bank so that you would not freeze - only you will not receive money, you have electricity and there is no bank in the trenches.

    This Isabelle has an interesting last name. Not American. Closer to Pashinin or Akopyan.
    Well, it's all nonsense. But the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are sitting in the trenches without light, coffee and warm blankets is a real disaster! Isabella, apparently, is not aware that her beloved country (USA), apart from machine guns, pistols, cartridges for them, as well as missile systems and missiles for them, does not supply Banderlogs with anything else! Apparently, rightly believing that grenades are enough for monkeys. And Ukronazi propaganda should keep them warm.
