Khodakovsky: a serious threat of capture by the enemy looms over Novodonetsky again
The Ukrainian army intends to intensify operations on the front between the settlements of Novomayorskoye, Novodonetskoye and Oktyabrskoye in the South-Donetsk direction, that is, at the junction of the DPR and the Zaporozhye region. This is evidenced by a number of signs that have long been noticed by the Russian military on the front lines.
This opinion was expressed in his Telegram channel by the deputy head of the Department of the National Guard for the DPR and the founder of the Vostok battalion Alexander Khodakovsky.
The officer believes that after the Urozhayne is taken by the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the enemy will regroup and strike in the previously mentioned direction. According to Khodakovsky, the threat of capture by the enemy again hung over Novodonetsky. He assumes that the attack of the Ukrainian military will be aimed at this village in the first place.
Khodakovsky notes that the advantage of enemy artillery in range creates significant difficulties for our military. And the counter-battery fight of the Russian Armed Forces is hindered by the suppression by the Ukrainian side of our drones. Because of this, our military has difficulty in identifying the location of enemy batteries. Yes, and identifying them does not always make it possible to strike back if they are at a great distance from the line of contact.
The officer believes that measures must be taken immediately to remedy this situation, since our soldiers are being subjected to unanswered artillery shelling and drone attacks, and yet they have yet to repel enhanced enemy counterattacks.
Earlier, the village of Novodonetskoye had already passed into the hands of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at the very beginning of their “counterattack”. True, they managed to recapture him almost immediately.
