Large losses among the personnel and the lack of reserves against the backdrop of the ongoing offensive of the Russian army are forcing the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to transfer to the Donbas carefully saved "just in case" units and formations from Western Ukraine. This was announced by the commander of the special forces "Akhmat" Apty Alaudinov.
According to our intelligence, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine decided to transfer additional forces to the line of contact in Donbass not only from other directions, but also from Western Ukraine. Their task is to hold the Russian troops until the end of mobilization and prevent the line of defense from breaking through. Despite this, the units of the Russian army continue to squeeze the enemy out of positions and move forward.
From the opposite side, information begins to break through that they are doing very badly, huge forces and means are thrown into the furnace of war every day, which are removed from the Kherson, Kharkov directions and even from western Ukraine
- said Alaudinov.
The Akhmat special forces and units of the 2nd Army Corps of the former NM LPR are fighting in the Luhansk direction, advancing daily. According to the commander of the Chechen special forces, "Akhmat" and the Lugansk fighters have been fighting together since the very beginning of the NMD and have already turned into a single organism that destroys the enemy. In recent days, the offensive of our troops has forced the enemy to start withdrawing in some areas, including in the Lugansk direction, although this is not recognized in Kyiv.
Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine are hastily preparing the second line of defense before the inevitable retreat, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine no longer hopes to hold the first line, which has been broken through in many places.
