Russian forces drop ammunition equivalent to an atomic bomb on Severodonetsk - Nazarenko
Russia cannot use the tactics of "destroyed land" for a long time, as in Severodonetsk
Volodymyr Nazarenko, a member of the National Guard, deputy commander of the Legion of Freedom, stated this on Espreso TV live on air.
"The turning point came a month ago - I estimate it like this. The Russians are able to attack only at one point, concentrating all the artillery they have and using the tactics of destroyed land. They dropped the equivalent of one atomic bomb on Severodonetsk, if you measure the amount of ammunition, which was released," - he said.
According to Nazarenko, the Russians will not be able to keep up the offensive for a long time in this way.
"They can do so at one point. I hope that Ukrainian men are now using this time at training grounds and training bases in order to learn and prepare as much as possible, and the new battalion units are now ready to go and receive orders. And the order is very simple - Kherson, Zaporizhzhia, Kharkiv - to fight with the enemy, to destroy the occupiers with our high-precision artillery, which was given to us by the Western allies," - the fighter said.
In his opinion, the Armed Forces will be able to destroy the Russian troops with long-range artillery, which will be thrown into battle after a pause.
"HIMARS is more of a deterrent weapon, or a long-range weapon. Many enemy targets, ammunition, warehouses, armored vehicles, and infantry manpower are constantly being destroyed. Even if the Russians start some transfer of parts - withdrawal to alignment and operational pause, then when they will start again, half of these units will be destroyed by long-range artillery," the military officer concluded.
