US senator: Situation in Donbass resembles a "trench war", but the supply of armored vehicles from the US will solve the problem

US Senator Angus King, in an interview with CBS, called the situation in Ukraine "terrible." As the politician put it, the dynamics of hostilities in the Donbass strongly resembles a "trench war."


Recall that the aforementioned term in the West "christened" the First World War. This is due to the fact that the most formidable weapons at that time, a machine gun was considered, and in order not to become a victim of heavy fire, the military dug numerous trenches on both sides, waiting for the attack in them.

At the same time, the photographs of Western military journalists often reflected the life of soldiers in the moment of respite between offensives. Naturally, it was not customary to publish fields strewn with bodies in newspapers.

As a result, on the frames one could see peacefully resting or taking a meal in well-equipped military trenches. Thus, the impression was that there were practically no active offensive operations, and the soldiers spent most of their time in shelters.

Why such an association arose with Angus King, the politician did not explain. This is probably due to the temporary absence of active offensive actions on both sides of the conflict in Ukraine, which were replaced by unceasing artillery duels. However, looking at what is happening near Soledar and Artemovsk, one can argue with the American senator.

Meanwhile, King is confident that the problem he mentioned will be solved thanks to the supply of armored vehicles, which was included in the latest aid package from the White House.

Tellingly, the receipt of the aforementioned military assistance by the Armed Forces of Ukraine has already been commented on in the Donetsk People's Republic. In particular, Jan Gagin, adviser to the acting head of the DPR, promised that all armored vehicles supplied by the West would inevitably be destroyed by the Russian military.

    He received a Bachelor of Arts from Dartmouth College in 1966 and a JD in 1969 from the University of Virginia. Leading and producer of television programs, engaged in private business[1].
    From 1995-2003, he was Governor of Maine.
    In 2012, he was elected to the US Senate as an independent candidate.
    Well, if the senator himself, and even an art critic, a producer .... then the US military can shut up. feel
    American tanks never decided anything and never did. Even in Iraq, where they were allowed to shoot (it was not in vain that they were transported across 3 seas), everything was decided by aviation and only it.

    Wonderful! A person who is as far as possible from war makes forecasts about war. Simply the ultimate truth.

    This war has really become a trench war, I hope temporarily, but the supply of tanks will not save them, since they do not have and I hope there will not be overwhelming fire superiority.

      "really became a trench", in WWI the appearance of tanks and armored cars turned the tide. What King is alluding to.
      As soon as the American: "Bradley" and several dozen Polish "Leos" appear, the question will become acute: VET. As practice shows: aviation can do a lot, but modern, ground-based, anti-tank weapons are needed, but how is it with us?
      "Meadowsweet" or "*Cornet" are certainly good, but MODERN means are needed.
      Sladkov, he spoke about this 2 or 3 years ago

      The question is where to find so many high-quality crews for all this armored vehicles? From the mobilized or what, who will read on the Internet how to operate the equipment?

      In particular, another appeal of the servicemen of the 3rd company of the 96th battalion of the 60th separate mechanized brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who are now in the vicinity of Bakhmut, has become public (they have not fought yet, but the cemetery has already been prepared for them).

      “Dear President of Ukraine, Mr. Zelensky! We are not able to carry out combat missions for some reason. First, the equipment is in an unsatisfactory state. Second, the weapons are faulty. Third, the batteries don't work. The state of health of 70 percent is unsatisfactory. Many times we reported about our problems, promised to fulfill, but no one fulfills. Sixth, the training was carried out for 14 days, in which we were not taught anything, they showed us three buttons, they said: “Go, fight! For those who don't understand, read on the Internet. Eighth, upon arrival from the training center, no one knew about our arrival, we were not met.

    The senator is right, the war is now going on positional, "Brusilov's breakthroughs" in it are possible with proper preparation and, as strength is accumulated, it will obviously be repeated. A large number of well-armored vehicles may well contribute to this. The enemy’s motivation is high, the movement is progressive, if they don’t bring down this courage, they can repeat it.

      The supply of this equipment, calculated in tens (even if in hundreds), will not help them. destroyed used equipment has long been estimated in the thousands. In addition, this leads to the depletion of arsenals in the supplier countries themselves, and this reduction threshold has its own critical level below which they cannot fall.

      Today there was information that the banderlogs began to retreat from Soledar.

      "they can repeat" they will definitely try and not near Soledar.
      There was infa that they would try to break into the Belgorod region.
      This breakthrough, even an attempt, immediately removes the strength from Bakhmut, Soledar.
      Yesterday, there was a publication on the topic: "strategic time pressure" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

    Until we have normal armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, everything will sit in the trenches and will.

      Well, why ... Stamps were a model of invincibility (at least it seemed to the British themselves laughing ). In the film "We are from Kronstadt" even the albatrosses of the revolution fled from them - red Kronstadt sailors yes
      But I have a worse example:

      Karbaras is the ultimate weapon!

    The Senator does not see or understand the full depth of our depths. And you don't have to explain it to him.
