In the Svatovo direction in the Lugansk People's Republic (LPR), units of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are moving forward very successfully. They destroy strongholds of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
The success of the offensive is determined by the effective interaction of the units of the Airborne Forces and tank units of the Ground Forces of the Russian Federation. He stated this in an interview with RIA News commander of the Russian battalion with the call sign "Polyak".
According to the officer, the Airborne Forces work with the support of tanks. Within a week they had advanced at least a kilometer, if not more. Only on the last day, two platoon strongholds of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were destroyed. Of course, in the areas of other units - their successes: there, too, the resistance of enemy strongholds is suppressed.
Losses of Ukrainian formations in these strongholds are estimated at about 20 people. The tanks are the first to act, then the paratroopers enter the positions and clean them up.
Worked fine, in normal mode. We went to the position, shot the numbers, worked out with a machine gun - everything is clear
- told RIA News mobilized tanker with the call sign "Ferret".
According to the serviceman, the tanks are being worked out to strengthen the Ukrainian detachment. Then the paratroopers begin to occupy the lines, clear the way and move on. As a result, it is possible to advance quickly enough, suppressing the resistance of the enemy.
It should be noted that the Svatov direction plays an important role in terms of liberating the territory of the Lugansk People's Republic from Ukrainian formations that have penetrated it. Also, Russian troops are successfully operating on the Donetsk front.
