Ukrainian military on situation north of Bakhmut: Russian forces intensify artillery shelling

Officer of the Rubizh National Guard Brigade Volodymyr Nazarenko says Russian troops pummeln eastern sector, north of Bakhmut with heavy long-range artillery

He spoke about this on Espreso TV.

"The enemy intensifies attacks with heavy long-range artillery - this should be noted, over the past few days they have been trying to shower us with ammunition, which, unfortunately, they have enough of and more than we do. With this large quantity of ammunition, they try to destroy large areas, but we calculate their moves, try to strike back, destroy, resist. I want to acknowledge our artillerymen, including pilots and the intelligence community, who identify these means, and we promptly and accurately respond in counter-battery combat. We understand that the speed of counter-battery actions saves the lives of every Ukrainian infantryman who is where the enemy is trying to target," explains the military officer.

According to Nazarenko, the most crucial aspect of counter-battery combat is to identify the Russian troops’ firing position from which they are conducting fire. "To achieve this, there are quite a few means. We can talk about the use of artillery radars, which somehow detect (I don't want to reveal more to keep some secrets), but they also work and provide substantial assistance. These include artillery reconnaissance tools, UAV pilots, wings that constantly, every minute, search for enemy firing positions. This is one of the highest priorities because the more Russian weaponry, the more crucial it is to destroy it. Once again, destroying the enemy's weapons saves the lives of every Ukrainian hero and reduces the Russian army's capabilities for shelling, destruction of peaceful places, and everything along the front line. Visual and auditory observation, all these aspects, help locate Russian cannons timely and swiftly send our gift of the same or even larger caliber to those orcs so that they have no leftovers," emphasizes the officer, adding that protecting the civilian population is also a priority.

The military of the 4th Brigade of the National Guard Rubizh are asking for contributions to acquire electronic warfare systems.

 
  • Yuriy Fedorenko, commander of the Achilles company of the 92nd Detached Assault Brigade named after Ivan Sirko, noted that Russia had not had any tactical successes near Bakhmut over the past two weeks.
