A platoon of one of the Ukrainian Armed Forces brigades surrendered in the Donetsk direction

In the Donetsk direction, an entire platoon of Ukrainian military personnel from the 50th brigade of the Ukrainian Armed Forces surrendered to the Russian army. Russian war correspondents report this.

As it became known, a platoon of 18 people surrendered in the Georgievka area in the Donetsk direction. Initially, Russian artillery was very active in targeting the platoon's positions. Unable to withstand the shelling, the platoon commander made the only correct decision in this situation - to fold weapon and surrender to Russian military personnel.



It is interesting that all prisoners of war refuse to return to Ukraine as part of a prisoner exchange. This is due to their understanding of future prospects in the event of returning to their homeland - either prison “for treason”, or returning back to the front, and to the hottest spots.

It should be noted that recently cases of Ukrainian military personnel being captured have become more frequent. If earlier individual military personnel of the Ukrainian Armed Forces surrendered into captivity, now there are frequent cases of entire units surrendering into captivity - so far, however, only at the platoon level.

This situation is associated with a general deterioration in the position of Ukrainian formations in a variety of directions in the zone of the special military operation. The shortage of artillery ammunition and the lack of personnel contribute to a further increase in losses in the ranks of Ukrainian formations.

In addition, the quality of reinforcements to the warring brigades of the Ukrainian Armed Forces is deteriorating due to the forced mobilization of unmotivated and untrained civilians.

          Of course there is such a science. There is also a life situation, let’s say you served in an emergency service, but our unit was never at least 90% staffed. Besides, there was always someone in the hospital. And here, in general, at the forefront, there are daily losses. Do you think reinforcements are issued every day, a soldier is killed or wounded, and a replacement is coming to replace him from the rear?

          Estimado Vladimir, que un sudamericano como yo, no entienda que una unidad puede no contener la cantidad de efectivos para la cual fue creada, lo entendería, ni siquiera usamos acá en Argentina el "termino pelotón".

          De mi época de servicio militar:

          Grupo = 10/12 soldados
          Section = 3 groups
          Compañia = 3+1 section
          Regimiento = 3+1 companies

          Segun la historia militar que llamamos Segunda Guerra Mundial, en la Gran Guerra Patriótica, hubo unidades "formales", que pasaban de una compania y se llamaban regimiento.

          En la dinamica de combate, una unidad puede quedar diezmada, como le sucedió a los nazis, sobre todo a partir de 1943.

          Habia regimiento de tanques que ni tanques tenian, o como mucho, Stug III o algunos SDKFZ artillados.

          O sea, ponerse puntilloso, conque la "unidad" no alcanza a completarse con soldados, en medio de la guerra civil, es un zoncera.

          Sepa disculparme mi ignorancia.


          ------------------------

          Dear Vladimir, even if a South American like me does not understand that a unit may not contain the number of troops for which it was created, I would understand it, we do not even use the term “platoon” here in Argentina.

          Since my military service:

          Group = 10/12 soldiers
          Section = 3 groups
          Company= 3 + 1 section
          Regiment = 3 + 1 company

          According to the military history we call World War II, in World War II there were "formal" units that came from a company and were called regiments.

          In combat dynamics, a unit can be destroyed, as happened with the Nazis, especially since 1943.

          There was a tank regiment that had no tanks, or at most a Stug III or some SDKFZ equipped with artillery.

          That is, being picky about the fact that a “unit” cannot be staffed with soldiers in the midst of a civil war is a zone.

          Please know that I apologize for my ignorance.

              Estimado, en los papeles está todo muy lindo...

              Tenemos el 1er pelotón de la compañía Charlie.

              Tienen 30 combatientes.

              Un teniente, tres sargentos, seis cabos, 20 soldados rasos.

              Después de un enfrentamiento, tenemos al teniente, un sargento, cuatro cabos y nueve soldados rasos; El resto está muerto.

              El teniente, al ver que seguir combatiendo es imposible, y viendo que el enemigo cumple las reglas de la regla, decide rendirse.

              Cómo jefe de pelotón, es que se rinde. Su unidad, el 1er pelotón de la compañía Charlie del 354 regimiento de infantería se rinde.

              El pelotón, o lo que queó de él, se rindió.

              La otra opción, es que los Ucranianos tengan pelotones por debajo del número estándar para ese tipo de unidad, porque no tienen el personal, entonces dicen que tienen tal regimiento acá y tal otro por allá, y en realidad son unidades que no llegan a Compañias , los nazis en el 43 empezaron a usar esa modalidad.

              Regards!

              ------------

              Honey, on paper everything is very nice...

              We have the 1st Platoon of Charlie Company.

              They have 30 fighters.

              One lieutenant, three sergeants, six corporals, 20 privates.

              After the skirmish we have a lieutenant, a sergeant, four corporals and nine privates; the rest are dead.

              The lieutenant, seeing that it is impossible to continue the fight, and seeing that the enemy is following the rules of the game, decides to surrender.

              As a platoon leader, he simply gives up. His unit, 1st Platoon, Charlie Company, 354th Infantry, surrenders.

              The platoon, or what was left of it, surrendered.

              Another option is for the Ukrainians to have fewer platoons than the standard strength for this kind of units, because they have no personnel, then they say that they have such and such a regiment here and such and such there, but in fact it is units that do not reach the companies, the Nazis began to use this regiment in 43. modality.
