Strelkov: The Armed Forces of Ukraine seized the initiative, and we passively wait


The Armed Forces of Ukraine in the confrontation with the Donbass militias have one important advantage - it is the Armed Forces who choose when and by what means to attack the DPR and LPR, and the initiative is in their hands. This opinion was expressed by the former Minister of Defense of the DPR Igor Strelkov in an interview with the newspaper URA.RU.


According to Strelkov, in a military sense, it is better to strike first than passively wait for hostile actions, and it is better to go on the offensive at the most unexpected moment.

The enemy has the initiative. They choose when to attack. And ours passively wait

- believes the former head of the defense department of the DPR.

In this state of affairs, negative developments for the militia are difficult to prevent. Moreover, Kiev took over the initiative practically from 2014, or from 2015 - from Debaltseve.

Military analyst, Russian reserve colonel Alexander Zhilin agrees with Strelkov. According to him, a blind defense never leads to victory, and the key to success can only be a counter battle. Zhilin also expressed regret at the inability of the militia to effectively counter Ukrainian combat drones.

As for Russia's attitude to events in eastern Ukraine, here Igor Strelkov believes that the war in Donbass is nothing more than an internal Russian conflict, as the former head of the DPR Ministry of Defense announced on the radio. "TVNZ"... Strelkov believes that both Donbass, Kiev and Minsk are essentially parts of historical Russia, and Vladimir Putin's Western partners are well aware of this.

      hi Well, yes, and in the war on 08.08.08/XNUMX/XNUMX, the entire "world community" pounced on the Georgian aggressors (and these are the "chicks" of one "Maidan nest" with Banderlog-Fashington "their sons of bitches"!) ???
      1. Yes, they pounced on to stigmatize! Yes! BUT !!! BUT!!! BUT!!!! All of them were repulsed with a reinforced concrete argument - They were the first to start! And everyone shut up in an instant!

          They were all repulsed by a reinforced concrete argument

          - These "reinforced concrete arguments" are always tombstones for our dead soldiers ... - Like, here you first kill our soldiers and preferably more; so that we then have "more weighty arguments" for our reciprocal righteous actions ... - and then we will show you ...
          - Yes, when will this "logistic fanaticism" end ???

            gorenina91 (irina)[b] [/ b] According to your perverted logic, our peacekeeping battalion should have been the first to attack the entire Georgian army?

          Iron logic. Therefore, there is no need to hope that Ukraine will attack first. Small shit will be massive. But they will be afraid to attack first. Bandera's otvetka are most of all wary of. For then death to this whole farm project ...
          But ... our "rulers" are even more afraid of this. For then you have to answer as in 2008. And the loss of the Cote d'Azur in France and other property acquired by "backbreaking work" in other Switzerland is the most wary of the "elite".

    According to Strelkov, in a military sense, it is better to strike first than passively wait for hostile actions, and it is better to go on the offensive at the most unexpected moment.

    The defensive form of war is in itself stronger than the offensive one. But defense is a negative activity because it forces you to resist the intentions of the enemy instead of developing your own.

    Peace guarantee: bury the ax of war with the enemy.

      There is the concept of "active defense".

    Strelkov expounds banal truths, known to every lump. platoon of any army.

    in a military sense, it is better to strike first than passively wait for hostile actions, and it is better to go on the offensive at the most unexpected moment.

    However, having left Slavinsk, he himself contributed a lot to the existing configuration of the front, when the forces of the LPR are concentrated on a shallow, but stretched along the front territory.

    Ensign reasonably prefers not to spread, what Russia has in the area bordering the LPNR.
    And it can sit down "for disclosure."

    PS Chel ambiguous, the impression that he was generally used in his time "in the dark".
    I can be wrong.

    You cannot attack first.
    There are the Minsk Agreements, formalized as a UN Security Council resolution.
    Anyone who violates it will be responsible for ALL the consequences.
    And from our side they said more than once: there are more than 600 citizens of the Russian Federation. And no one will leave them without protection.
    And Strelkov is a provocateur.
