    It is now that the fate of the entire military operation is being decided, the enemy is fiercely resisting, but in no case should you lose and give him the initiative, you need to close the ring and destroy enemy units that are surrounded if they continue to resist and do not wish to lay down their arms and surrender .

      No "fate" is decided. There are 9 such cities only in the offensive zone, but so far they have taken 3.

        Do not interfere with a person, he is from a group of enthusiastically believing in an imminent victory (as they believe "there", among "brothers / non-brothers") ...

      Well, here we have grief experts wrote after the capture of Izyum and a couple of villages adjacent to it to the south that the entire front of the crests fell and right now, running along our road to reach Slavyansk ... The reality is completely different. and so, according to the mind, it’s not necessary to take Slavyansk, but to cut the supply routes of the entire grouping .. And for this you need a lot of strength and equipment and, most importantly, military leadership talent ... With the latter, we had big problems

        Yes, storming cities is not camille. The losses are huge. It is probably better to block and cut off from the supply. However, the military knows better, although past miscalculations are visible to the naked civilian eye.
