"Cannons are not ceasing day or night": Ukrainian Armed Forces say enemy has changed tactics near Bakhmut
Ukrainian Defense Forces soldiers continue to hold the initiative in the Bakhmut sector of the frontline. Against the backdrop of setbacks in this area of the front line, the army of the aggressor country Russia is changing its tactics.
On November 3, Ukrainian soldier Yuriy Fedorenko, who commands a company of Achilles unmanned aerial systems of the 92nd separate mechanized brigade, told about this during a telethon. According to him, the fighting near Bakhmut lasts 24 hours a day - the guns do not stop firing night or day.
The soldier noted that the occupation forces are trying to change the tactics of warfare in order to gain at least some success, but the initiative is still on the side of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
As part of the change in tactics, the occupiers are changing the personnel involved in the assaults. In some areas of the Bakhmut direction, the occupiers are using mobilized or invaders from the "Storm Z" unit to conduct assaults. And in some areas, professionally trained contract soldiers are being deployed.
"Sometimes the enemy attacks only with manpower supported by artillery, and sometimes with the support of armored vehicles," the Ukrainian serviceman noted.
In addition, the Russian army is actively using drones, and there is a lot of UAV saturation on many parts of the front near Bakhmut.
At the same time, the Ukrainian army has the means to detect and land enemy drones.
Earlier, the press officer of the 26th separate artillery brigade named after Lieutenant General Roman Dashkevich, Oleh Kalashnikov, said that the Ukrainian army is making progress in the Bakhmut sector. Our defenders have advanced on the southern flank of the city.
As reported by OBOZ.UA, the Commander of the Land Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Oleksandr Syrsky said that in the area of Bakhmut, the Russian occupiers significantly strengthened their group and moved from defense to active actions.
