Bakhmut secror: Russia preserves artillery ammunition, actively deploys drones and EW systems
Oleksandr Borodin, the spokesperson for the 3rd separate assault brigade, pointed out that the Russian forces have shifted away from large-scale artillery barrages and have increasingly employed kamikaze drones, which are available in substantial numbers
Borodin discussed this development with Espreso.
"They have revised their strategies for countering our artillery positions. They heavily rely on kamikaze drones now. On one hand, it's likely due to their inability to target specific locations as effectively as before. They lacked accurate intelligence to pinpoint our positions, so they previously bombarded entire areas," he stated.
Borodin suggests that the Russian military might no longer employ the tactic of extensive artillery shelling in the Bakhmut region, potentially due to concerns about conserving their artillery ammunition. He noted that the adversary possesses numerous electronic warfare capabilities.
"However, they are heavily investing in kamikaze drones, and it's evident that they are producing them in large quantities. They recognize the significance of this weapon in modern warfare and are trying to minimize other equipment usage, especially infantry support," Borodin concluded.
- Ukrainian defense forces maintain their positions and have achieved progress in certain areas. For instance, near Klishchiivka in the Bakhmut region, the Armed Forces have advanced. Additionally, Ukrainian defenders have made gains on the left bank of the Kherson region.
