Russia sets traps for Ukrainian army in Melitopol sector - serviceman
Kostyantyn Denysov, a member of Freedom Legion, noted that sometimes Russian forces deliberately withdraw from their positions to trap Ukrainian units
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"There are tactical successes of the Ukrainian Armed Forces in the Melitopol sector due to many factors. First and foremost, it is the heroism of the assault infantry, the excellent work of artillery and aerial reconnaissance. Recently, the Defense Forces have taken up favorable positions in this area, but the advance comes at a very heavy price. The enemy is constantly firing artillery and trying to counterattack. Also, Russian enemy has significantly improved the situation with FPV drones, which are used to pin down our infantry and hunt for our equipment," Denysov said.
The Freedom Legion fighter also added that sometimes the Russian forces can deliberately move away from their positions to trap our units.
“The Russian enemy is vile and cunning. Recently, our guys fell into a trap and miraculously got out of it. The Russian forces allegedly abandoned their positions, our guys went in, but Russian enemy had already shot everything there. The Russian soldiers are setting up many traps because they understand that they will not take us head-on," Denysov said.
