Shoigu ordered the priority destruction of Western artillery systems in the Donbass

On July 18, the head of the Russian defense department, Sergei Shoigu, inspected the Vostok grouping of the Russian Armed Forces and instructed the responsible persons on further actions during the implementation of the special operation in Ukraine.

The commander of this military unit, Rustam Muradov, reported to the minister on the current situation in the Vostok responsibility zone.

Sergei Shoigu, noting the strengthening of the strike capabilities of the group, instructed the commander to prioritize the destruction of enemy long-range missiles and artillery with high-precision weapons

– noted in a press release from the Ministry of Defense.

At the same time, the special need for the destruction of Western artillery systems in the Donbass is indicated in connection with the shelling of residential buildings and settlements of the region, as well as granaries by the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Meanwhile, Russian units are successfully hitting Western-supplied weapons. So, the day before, a video appeared with the burnt self-propelled guns "Crab" of Polish production. The RF Armed Forces and the vaunted HIMARS missile systems, for which Kyiv had so many hopes, are being destroyed.

Earlier, the deputy head of the People’s Militia Department of the DPR, Eduard Basurin, announced that the village of Avdiivka was taken into a semi-encirclement, as well as that the road connecting this settlement with Konstantinovka was blocked in two places.

    There are several dozens of Polish self-propelled guns Crab, one was destroyed - an achievement? ... The main question is why the Polish self-propelled guns Crab, T-72 tanks and so on generally hit the Ukrainian Armed Forces. Why not taken from diplomatic to reconnaissance and sabotage activities. (The SVR, which practically proved its incapacity under the leadership of Naryshkin with his wife, an Israeli citizen, is nothing to say), An example with Ukraine and the SVR, the SVR service did not work in essence and is the main source of disruption of the SVR. Therefore, the commander’s instruction to “catch individual lice” when dirt and lice go off scale is simply ridiculous and illustrative level of the “chief generals” ....

      Why not taken from diplomatic to reconnaissance and sabotage activities.

      1) The weapon of a diplomat is the head and the tongue attached to the brain, therefore, the set of diplomatic means is very limited, and very little can be done here.
      2) Why did the self-propelled guns and tanks hit? Because the Ukro-Polish border is completely open, and nothing prevents the Poles from supplying weapons to the Ukrainians.
      3) Where can Russia take so many saboteurs to cut off the supply of weapons? Given that such operations in the center or in the west of Ukraine will result in a 100% mortality rate for all these saboteurs.

      Why not taken ... reconnaissance and sabotage measures

      "Kovpaks" with his partisan detachments in / in Western Ukraine are somehow in short supply, but Bandera and informers are in abundance. Well, you can hardly find Lavrenty Pavlovich and Pavel Anatolyevich now in power structures.

    His order is a logical decision. There are few HIMARS systems in Ukraine and removal should not be a problem
