On the exit Strelkova from the environment. Opinion of the Ukrainian military
Posted by Ukrainian military with one big star. Considered one of the most capable in the Sun Ruins. In general, loyal to any government, but shocked by what is happening. I am not involved in the punitive operation, and I am very happy about it.
At Strelkov’s exit from Slavyansk, your Kurginyan bears the most outspoken x ... y. I am not interested in his hidden motives, I am not interested in the insider, which he may have, I say that on the surface.
A minus from leaving Slavyansk alone is any retreat from the unpleasantly receding side.
Now why did Slavyansk have to be left ...
From an operational point of view.
After complete encirclement and blockade, the destruction of the defending group is a matter of time. They run out of combat and other supplies. To release the motley "DPR" forces from the outside could not.
Slavyansk is a relatively small city, in the operational and tactical sense it is very difficult to defend it. Especially in the environment.
Preserving the most combat-ready "DPR" forces that went through combat coordination, received good combat experience and military motivation is much more important than the retention of one settlement, although it has already become the Symbol.
"Slavic standing" gave time to create the armed forces of the "DPR". For the most part, this time is spent ineptly - there are forces, but they are not united and not coordinated. Pull further - death like. The Slavnya grouping serves as a good backbone for the rapid unification of all armed forces, and the Strelkov for the organization of unity of command, without which the army is impossible.
After the complete blockade of Slavyansk ours could no longer go on the assault, and did not intend to. We planned to do Donetsk, which is not yet ready for a normal defense. The "shooter" with his people would have stayed away from the main events, and nothing serious would have meant any more.
And now it turns out that now, while most of the forces are diverted to the Slavic direction, besides, the best, a quick way out of there gives it a head start in a few days - our quick response to the changed situation is impossible, it gives a few days to change our own strategy and tactics .
Bear in mind that we did not know anything about leaving until the very end. According to intelligence, the shooter was going to sit on the defensive to the end. The stars are already flying for this mistake.
The moment of exit from the point of view of the growth of threats is selected masterly. Just when it was needed - not earlier and not later. It seems to me that if Strelkov played on the exchange rates, he would have become a millionaire))
From a humanitarian point of view.
This Kurginyan said that residents were “abandoned” without protection. Let's imagine that Strelkov decided to protect the residents of Slavyansk to the last inhabitant of Slavyansk. What will happen?
Our "white sheet" is given for everything. With a guarantee that everything will be written off. So, Slavyansk will erase artillery from the face of the earth, half and more people will die. Without medical assistance, the wounded will die. Many painfully. Hunger, epidemics. In the end, after heavy losses, the city will take weeks through 1-2-3 and ... No one will be responsible for the rest.
Having entered an organized city left behind by the militia and active residents, they are ashamed to arrange a mass slaughter. They need to be beautiful. From Kiev, ordered to show humanism. Sent journalists. The arrests will be serious, but they will not cut everyone. Already good.
From a moral and political point of view.
The death of the Slavic group through 2-3 weeks would mean the loss of half of the most combat-ready parts of the “Armed Forces of the DPR”. With this loss exactly the same as now, the moral factor "Slavyansk fell" but multiplied many times by the loss of its garrison. This would lead to complete demoralization and a quick defeat of the remaining forces.
An organized breakthrough from the environment should be viewed as a small and important tactical victory. Block "Arrow" and destroy its grouping failed. On the other hand, a qualitative replenishment (experienced, motivated, with high fighting spirit of the fighters) went to Donetsk with a leader who will now start cleaning Makhnovshchina. This is the alphabet. In wartime, all power should be concentrated in the hands of the military administration. And nothing else. As still the formal “Minister of Defense of the DPR”, now he should actually take military and mostly civilian power into his own hands. Which, apparently, has already begun to do.
1. Retained the most combat-ready parts of the “DPR” and military equipment.
2. Saved many lives of residents of Slavyansk.
3. Significantly strengthened the garrison of Donetsk.
4. Opened prospects for restoring order in the leadership of the DPR. First of all in the military sense.
5. Strelok gained access to resources that settled in Donetsk and did not reach its troops.
And Donetsk is not a small Slavyansk. Would not have been our napoleon such cowardly idiots, it could be a long time to take powerful Cleave. This could be done even today, tomorrow. And the day after tomorrow is too late. But until tomorrow they will not have time. Because idiots.
In general, unless there is some political or other incidents, in military terms is now Donetsk can be kept for a long time. And our idiots can blame themselves. ”
