The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation showed the quality of the reinforced concrete fortifications of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Donbass

In the course of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, details began to appear about which fortifications, and often entire defensive complexes and fortified areas of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the troops of Russia and their allies from the LPR and DPR in the Donbass have to overcome. The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation showed footage that clearly demonstrates this.

The video below shows high-quality reinforced concrete and stone objects with bunkers and armored doors. There is also an extensive system of communications, trenches, earth embankments and equipped firing positions. This is a well-defended stronghold of one of the units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, taken under control during the offensive. There are a lot of such "oporniks" in the Donbass.

These positions were subjected to artillery, air and missile strikes - you can “nibble” them for a long time. But, as the advanced formations of the Russian Airborne Forces advanced, they were opened by well-aimed hits of ammunition. APU suffered losses and left them.

As a result of the artillery strike, the enemy suffered losses and, upon subsequent contact with the Airborne Forces units, abandoned their positions and retreated

- stated in the statement of the department.

This video will be useful to review several times for those who are still wondering "why the progress is so slow." That is precisely why, as shown in the footage, in order not to pour blood on Russian soldiers and their allies, all these military engineering delights.

    If in 2014 some of the top Russian leadership would not have given up, would not have been hastily led to the so-called. the Minsk Agreements, obligingly waved by the West, would not have stopped the militia... And the ruined Mariupol, by the way, would have been intact with all the factories.

      the history of the subjunctive mood does not accept. what's done is done. the main thing is that they don’t forget it and don’t repeat it

      So, they believed in the presence of at least some amount of common sense.
      Who would have thought that it would not be clinically?
      Yes, it was a mistake, and now you have to pay for it.

    if the troops of the Red Army, who broke through the Mannenheim line in just a week, were shown these "fortifications" and told that their descendants had been beating their heads against them for almost three months, they would have pissed with laughter ...

      Actually two months, not a week. Well, they didn’t spare the soldier’s blood at the same time.
      It is clear that you do not feel sorry for our soldiers, but for me, let it be slowly, but without big losses.
      And it would be better if you pissed three times than wrote about a week.

    As a Chechen commander (of a company, it seems) said on camera the other day: "They dig well,"
    it’s worth adding - but they retreat ... and they retreat even faster than they dig. Why?

    But because no matter how much concrete you swell, the Bandera essence of the "misunderstanding" created on the territory of the Ukrainian SSR takes over.

    Because "Ukraine", which can no longer be called a "state", is becoming more and more, even in small things, a copy of ISIS, with their burrows-tunnels for kilometers. And neither one nor the other desire to hide, burrowing deeper from human eyes, does not save and will not save. And they know it.

    Purely for understanding: I wonder why they dug all this for 8 years ?!

    Why can't they just be bypassed? Surround them and let them exist there for at least 100 years. Poison them with gas and that's it .... In the meantime, go to Kyiv, Odessa. Separate Galicia ....

    Anto, they so wanted to suddenly attack Russia and Ukraine, they wanted so much that for all 8 years they were all concreted and concreted shelters and dug deeper and deeper ...)))

    logic sucks...

      everyone concreted and concreted shelters and dug deeper and deeper ...)))

      logic is out.
      There is such a concept in military affairs - a stronghold (area). Fortifications and warehouses are being built there. So the Ukrainians wanted, having launched an offensive, to rely on these same areas. If they succeeded, the victims would be innumerable.

    Why knock them out if you can just poison them .... There is a humane way .. the gas starts up and that's it ..

      why then do thermobaric ammunition exist if they are not used? "Father of all bombs" or is it just show-off? or are they too expensive? they were used in Afghanistan and Chechnya, but the use in the Donbass was not heard.
