"The enemy is a little stalled": AFU military spoke about the situation in the Horlivka direction. Video
Ukrainian Armed Forces serviceman Yevhen Iievliev said that the Russian occupiers "stalled a bit" in the Horlivka direction. The enemy is currently moving its ammunition and personnel to other areas where it has weaknesses.
He said this on the Espresso TV channel. According to him, the density of enemy shelling has decreased over the past week.
"There was a certain movement of the enemy after the success of our soldiers near Klishchiivka, Kurdyumivka and Andriivka, but these active actions took place within 3-4 days. Perhaps this is because the enemy needs more ammunition or personnel in other areas. And now the situation is inactive on the part of the Russian military," he said.
The soldier noted that this situation allows Ukrainian defenders to do certain tricks, but he did not specify what exactly.
According to him, any changes at the front are dynamic. But the fact that the Russian occupiers have stalled a bit makes it possible to detect more and fly even further with drones, looking into the enemy's rear.
"Today, we can fly 8-9 kilometers without a transponder, but we can't do this work under active fire. When mortars and self-propelled artillery systems are firing, you can't raise your head, let alone take the Mavic out," Iievliev added.
The Ukrainian Armed Forces fighter believes that the Russians are forced to fortify where they are weak. That is, we can't talk about any offensive initiative of the enemy at the moment. The Russian military probably needs more ammunition in the areas where they are losing ground.
"The enemy has a positive situation only in terms of human resources, but not with those who know how to fight [...] The Russians have slightly reduced their activity in our direction, because they apparently do not consider it promising for an offensive, so they are redeploying ammunition and personnel to other areas," Iievliev summarized.
As a reminder, the former commander of the U.S. Army in Europe, military expert General Ben Hodges said that the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine completely outplayed the General Staff of the aggressor country, Russia. Thanks to this, our country has an advantage in the counteroffensive, because the enemy does not know where the next Ukrainian attack will come from.
As OBOZREVATEL reported earlier, Ben Hodges disagreed with those who criticize the Ukrainian counteroffensive. He noted that people who criticize how someone else enters minefields and enemy trenches should be ashamed of themselves.
