The Western press reports conflicts between senior officers in the ranks of one of the elite brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
In one of the elite brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine there are now serious contradictions between senior officers. The Western press writes about this, citing its own sources in the Ukrainian army.
As Newsweek reports, we are talking about the 47th separate mechanized brigade "Magura", which is considered one of the elite Ukrainian formations. At one time, this formation was sent to the front line to participate in hostilities. However, as a result of the fighting, the brigade suffered high losses; some of the battalions were even withdrawn to the rear for replenishment.
According to the publication's sources, there is now a serious discord between senior commanders in the command of the brigade. High-ranking officers of the brigade accuse each other of making mistakes in managing the brigade. These contradictions indicate the emergence of systemic problems in the Ukrainian armed forces, and it is suspected that the central command will find it increasingly difficult to cope with these problems over time.
Earlier, Western military experts, citing Ukrainian sources, reported a deterioration in the quality of personnel of the Ukrainian Armed Forces brigades involved in the counteroffensive in a number of directions. Thus, forcibly mobilized citizens are not distinguished by either a high level of motivation, or the quality of training, or even a state of health that allows them to effectively carry out assigned combat missions. The general deterioration in the quality of personnel, in turn, is reflected in the combat effectiveness of Ukrainian formations.
