Military expert explained the meaning of the regrouping of the RF Armed Forces in the Kharkiv direction

During the implementation of the Russian special operation on Ukrainian territory, on September 11, the Russian Ministry of Defense informed the public about a large-scale regrouping of troops in the Kharkiv direction. An expert, TV commentator, member of the RARAN, retired captain of the first rank Konstantin Sivkov drew his attention to this.

According to the expert, the command of the RF Armed Forces was aware of the preparation of the AFU counteroffensive in this area. In this regard, a whole range of various measures was carried out aimed at misleading the enemy. Near Balakleya, Izyum and other areas, the appearance of “weak defense” was specially created so that the Ukrainian army fell into a trap.

Therefore, now the troops are regrouping to destroy the grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which came to the areas of Balakliya and Izyum. It must be borne in mind that there are no fortified areas there, so the task of destroying the most combat-ready Ukrainian units will be solved quite successfully. This will take a few more days.

- he is sure.

Sivkov drew attention to the fact that according to the report of the Russian Defense Ministry, over the past 3 days, more than 2 thousand Ukrainian military personnel, nationalist militants and foreign mercenaries, as well as more than 100 units of various types of heavy weapons, were destroyed. He stressed that the RF Armed Forces are now faced with the main task of reducing the combat capability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, i.е. reducing their potential through the elimination of personnel and various equipmentso that the Ukrainian command does not have the strength and means to effectively conduct further military operations.

The expert added, in the process of interviewing the newspaper "Sight"that the implementation of distracting maneuvers was necessary for the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to “pull out” the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the fortified areas, where they were well dug in. He pointed out that if the Ukrainian troops remained in Slavyansk or Kramatorsk, and did not head north, then for the capture of these cities, the Russian army and its allies from the DPR and LPR would have to fight hard to “pick out” them from there.

And now it (the group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine - ed.) is in full view. Therefore, a whole range of measures was taken to mislead the enemy, an illusion was created that we had a weak defense in this direction and allegedly there was no information about the preparation of an offensive. The enemy was misled about the location and actions of our troops

- summed up the expert.

    but how then will this iksperd explain why, when relocating and misleading the enemy, they left so many warehouses with fuel and lubricants and ammunition, equipment, is this also such a tricky move? Rather than carry this nonsense, it would be better then to remain silent, while people like him will assent to Putin, nothing worthwhile will come of this undertaking with the NWO

    So far unverified information.

    Colonelcassad (Boris Rozhin) There are also signs of a withdrawal of troops from the Liptsov area, Cossack Lopan and Uda.

    This means that Russian troops are leaving the Kharkiv region completely and retreating to the border.

    Konstantin Sivkov is a storyteller.

    It is not yet evening, and K. Sivkov is a knowledgeable specialist, . let's hope that what K. Sivkov said will come true, it is very desirable. To the words of K. Sivkov, - where is the recently formed 3rd corps with fairly modern weapons ... A little joke: the words of the notorious Adolf, when the battles near Berlin -

    where is the Army of the Wreath, urgently for the deblockade

    and at that time the Wenck Army was moving from Berlin to surrender to the Americans ... Why, yes to Konashenkov’s alerts, sometimes differ from reality ...

      About the 3rd Corps, the correct remark. Where did he concentrate? I really hope that there will be an offensive in the south. Moreover, Nikolaev must be taken regardless of any losses.
      The offensive (successful) in the south will nullify all the successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkov direction.

    the gray gelding justifies the General Staff who pissed off the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We have already heard about the leveling of the front, the exit from the encirclement, the transfer of parts. And then it turns out that dill is taken out into an open field. And there they will stand in a row instead of a target and the main thing is to hit.

    Military expert explained the meaning of the regrouping of the RF Armed Forces in the Kharkiv direction

    that the implementation of distracting maneuvers was necessary for the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation to “pull out” the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the fortified areas, where they were well dug in.

    - Yes - it's good to "pull out and lure" the enemy !!!
    - And what about the fact that the enemy has already several times "pulled out and lured" himself into bare, absolutely unprotected spaces - that near Kherson (Andreevsky direction) - that near Kharkov (Izyum direction) - and what is all this for us ( Armed Forces of the Russian Federation) ended ??? - The fact that we ourselves must continue to "pull out" and "lure" him ??? - Such a "strategy" is good!

    - Yes, Mr. Colonel Sivkov - says something "not right" !!!
    - Damn, I'm afraid to even imagine (let alone say) - but I'm quite a "specific person" = I'll still say:
    - Most likely, our command is already starting to carry out another voluntary "friendly gesture" - it is starting to voluntarily withdraw the RF Armed Forces from the Kharkov region!
    - Yes - "no more and no less" !!!
    - It means that...that...that .......................... .......
    - Well, everything is starting to clear up now - this is the beginning of the curtailment of the entire NWO campaign - our guarantor turned out to be a little thin !!! - This is not water "to pour verbal water" at all kinds of "friendly meetings"; sit on a chair and kick your feet!!!
    - Well, what is there ... here ... you say .... - it is impossible to simultaneously fulfill the interests of our oligarchs and the interests of Russia - at the same time it is simply impossible !!! - Russian oligarchs will now breathe a sigh of relief - their "disgrace" and "disgrace" from the West is ending!!! - If only I could be wrong!
    - Sic transit gloria mundi (sic transit gloria mundi) - this is how worldly glory passes!
    - Glory to our Russia !!!

    all-populists are outraged by Sivkov ... the losses of the Nazis are already estimated at 12 thousand people (Wh 4000 killed), out of 30 thousand this is very decent, let them sit in an open field and we bomb them ....

    a meeting of military leaders convened by Mikhail Illarionovich Kutuzov on September 1 (13), 1812. Taking into account the heavy losses in the Battle of Borodino, the great Russian commander, at the military council in the village of Fili, supported the proposal made by Barclay de Tolly to leave Moscow without a fight in order to save the army. He said: "Leaving Moscow, we will save the army, losing the army, we will lose Moscow and Russia." M.I. Kutuzov found the strength to courageously make this decision for the sake of preserving the army, foreseeing that, thanks to the strategy he had chosen, Napoleon's army would inevitably be defeated in the future. ....... All this decided the outcome of the war and confirmed the foresight and talent of the great Russian commander.

      Losses of 4 thousand or even 10 thousand people are insignificant for the Nazi regime. If it will be possible to take Kherson, putting 20 thousand people, Kyiv will go for it.

        losses of 12 thousand out of 30 motivated zapadentsy, this is very decent, it is becoming more and more difficult for the Nazis to collect reserves, the conscription is drying up, the therodefense and fascist battalions are being brought into battle, conscripts are getting worse in quality, less and less motivated, older and do not want to fight, and motivated fascists trained on the west is drying up, who will stand in the detachments? they collected 30 thousand fists for quite a long time and exposed Donbass and Kherson, perhaps they removed the last brigades from the west of Ukraine, (judging by obituaries) now it has become easier for us to move to Donbass

          I do not believe that the Ukrainians exposed Kherson. Not today or tomorrow they will strike in the south. Or in the center of Donetsk. They will choose the place and time. And their reserves are far from exhausted.

          There is one more thing that just drives me crazy. Do you count only aircraft losses? And how did several thousand or tens of thousands of Russian people who believed that "Russia is here forever" receive Russian passports and prepare to vote for Russia? They also need to be recorded as losses.
          I would not hold a referendum now either in Zaporozhye or in Kherson. In the Kharkiv region is no longer relevant.
          And I would stop handing out passports there. While there is no certainty that these territories will be retained, it is simply criminal to expose tens of thousands of people to repression.

I can’t help you, go to the temple and light a candle, it may become easier ....... calm down our losses for the entire special operation are very large, almost 15000 according to Western estimates, but to compare them with 200-300 thousand losses of the Nazis .....

    I wonder how, in the opinion of the all-weaponers, the General Staff should have prepared for the attacking actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine? Create a powerful fortified area around Balakleya made of reinforced concrete and anti-tank hedgehogs? Well, the APU would have twisted at the temple and bypassed it. The essence of mobile defense is to fight where it is convenient for us.

      The General Staff must know the art of war and military theory. Having given the initiative to the enemy, he must guess where the enemy will strike. 3-4 months of operational pause allowed the Armed Forces of Ukraine to build up the grouping, arm it and strike.

      And now the General Staff is wondering where the Armed Forces of Ukraine will deliver the next blow. They are removing troops from near Kharkov. One version is that they will strike near Ugledar. Minefields are already being cleared there. The second version is that they will strike directly at Donetsk. They can create a grouping of 20-30 thousand people in a few days.

      The one with the initiative himself chooses the direction of the strike and has the ability to quickly build up the grouping. Catching the direction of the blow is meaningless. In the summer of 1943, the command of the Voronezh Front knew for sure that the Germans would go on the offensive. But they did not know exactly where in the 140 km section. In the end, they were wrong.

    It is impossible to predict the direction of the blow. The bottom line is that first a weak spot in the defense is groped for, and then the reserves of the attackers are thrown there. This is the basics.

      Quite right. That's what I wrote "It's pointless to catch the direction of the blow."
      The main blow is parried by a blow to the flank. This is the basics. This has been the case since 1941. Poppel's group in 1941, the encirclement of the Germans at Stalingrad in 1942, the Battle of Kursk in 1943.
      Those who have the initiative can freely maneuver their forces and create local superiority.
      How did the Germans encircle the Southwestern Front? Guderian reached Lokhvitsa on his last breath. Throwing even bakers into battle. That is, Guderian's breakthrough to the south was dangerous, but not fatal. The Red Army missed the Kleist group. Having made a 100 km march, she immediately crossed the Dnieper along the pontoon bridge, which German sappers erected overnight and hit from the south. That is, the Kleist group, in the conditions of possessing the initiative, quite suddenly appeared near Kremenchug.

      I repeat. If you have given the initiative to the enemy, then wait for the strike anywhere. The one chosen by the opponent. And the Russian army gave the initiative in the spring and summer of this year. Instead of conducting an offensive, they switched to the methods of the First World War. And while the artillery was "grinding" conscripts without preparation, Kyiv (more precisely the West) prepared, trained and armed 10 fighters in three months. These are 000-3 full-fledged brigades.

    The meaning of retreat is retreat. The meaning of the retreat to the state border is to invite the Outskirts to conduct their own NMD on our territory .... Well, now they are already trying hard - only 30 km from the border to Belgorod .... now their long-range weapons far interrupt this distance ...

    Maybe this was such a plan, or maybe not, one can still argue here, but the fact that we don’t accept our mistakes is obvious. On TV, the entire space has long been cleared, all information has been emasculated and some sober, and even more so critical thoughts, simply cannot seep through. The authority of the Great Helmsman cannot be subjected to even a shadow of doubt, and it is simply amazing how he has not yet been canonized. It is hard to believe that in such a management system, where the pros in their field are far from being in the first place, a sober analysis of errors can occur and correct conclusions can be drawn.
