Brigade commander of the DPR spoke about the losses from "friendly fire"

During the battle for Mariupol in the spring of 2022, units of the NM DPR suffered some losses from "friendly fire" from the Russian Armed Forces. This was announced on November 5 in his Telegram channel by the commander of the Vostok brigade (former Vostok battalion - military unit 08818 - 11th separate guards motorized rifle Enakievo-Danube regiment) Alexander Khodakovsky.

After the Mariupol operation, we considered that we suffered most of the losses from friendly fire. Someone even called the figure - sixty percent. This is an ordinary phenomenon, but its spread depends, of course, on the competence of commanders - especially artillerymen.

- said the brigade commander.

He noted that once, when his formation was carrying out a combat mission, mines began to fall on him from the rear. They began to find out who was firing. With the help of a drone, a mortar battery was identified. Having established contact, we found out that this was a mortar unit of the RF Armed Forces, which had received an order to shell a certain area. At the same time, the mortars had only a paper map of the area and there was no drone to adjust the fire. They reported that they were shooting "at a point on the map", simply following orders.

Khodakovsky clarified that his fighters then did not depart from these mortars and corrected their fire. They installed the necessary programs on the mortarmen's smartphones and taught them how to use them. At the same time, there were quite a lot of cases of “friendly fire” and other “friendly actions”.

For example, moving somehow along the industrial zone in Mariupol at night, the fighters occupied buildings and held them. Then in the morning there was to be a rotation. These fighters had to be replaced so that they could rest. But on the route of movement there were mines laid by someone.

Some army general gave a command to his engineers to mine the front, which had gone ahead in a day, but the general did not even bother to ask. As a result, several people died, including the tank crew with the commander of the tank company, who was on foot to receive the task.

- said the sad details of the commander.

Khodakovsky, who has combat experience since 2014, noted that over the time that has passed since the beginning of the NMD, there was hope that some commanders would gain experience and the number of cases of rash (uncoordinated) actions by the allied forces would decrease. However, he was wrong, as this continues to this day.

That night, one of the units was returning in rotation from the "front end" with the lights off. But the vehicles with the fighters landed straight into a ditch dug by "army subcontractors from the nth corps" on their way overnight.

There, in general, a wild commander of the engineering service, ruined all the access roads, along the route, because of his art, there are inverted Urals ... In general, with such geniuses, we don’t even need enemies. Gentlemen army chiefs, control the situation - it's time to grow

- summed up Khodakovsky.

    Alexander Khodakovsky, commander of the Vostok brigade (former Vostok battalion - military unit 08818 - 11th separate guards motorized rifle Enakievo-Danube Regiment) said in his Telegram channel.

    They twisted it - by turning it so that in fact you might think that Khodakovsky's cobrig brigade, which includes the 11th Guards. OMSP...

    In fact, Khodakovsky is in command of a small volunteer unit, which is not up to the standard of a regiment.
    And the 11th regiment, assembled during the formation of the AK from scattered militia units, including the former "Vostok", is structurally part of the 1AK.

    That is, in fact, if his "brigade" somehow interacts with the 11th regiment of the NM DPR, then
    not in the first roles, but as a dowry unit.

    Therefore, at least strange, why is he "jumping over the head of the authorities" talks about what was happening? Who authorized him? Subordination, it's not for him?

    Or, the Makhnovist is his own commander? "I will lead the parade"

      It all comes down to a simple answer - the lack of proper communication and interaction between departments. At the exercises, they cheerfully reported on a network of centric communications at all levels, in practice, civil smartphones and children's drones are forced to be used in the NWO. Conclusion: where did the allocated billions go on the network of centric communications in the troops, who bought dozens of houses, villas, yachts and other things with them. The military prosecutor's office probably had the same thing, since it is silent. Rottenness comes through from the RF Ministry of Defense through the spilled blood of fighters. That is why the firefighters, who were not drowned in the military ministers, shared. Because the United States boldly claims the victory of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in such cases in the RF Ministry of Defense, it is quite affirmative. Commander Surovikin appeared, although small progress immediately began, so if you change the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation for the company of such a NGSH, significant progress will begin.

      I agree, what can I say that, many deputies were retrained in the FSA under the leadership of the CIA, the KGB also directly participated in the collapse of the USSR under the leadership of Gorbachev, after which the withdrawal of our troops from Europe followed, now because of this there is a war near our borders and NATO troops are stationed 500 km from the capital and we are bleeding like a river, all this is the work of the traitors Gorbachev, Yeltsin, etc., including the leadership of the KGB and the FSB, which is now warmed up by the NATO countries for their betrayal ...

    This is explained simply: all the little bosses and big ones too, everyone wants to get medals. And it is desirable that it be the star of the Hero! And the fact that at the same time a couple of Ivanovs and Matveevs will die for nothing, all this goes not even into the background, but into the third or fourth plan. Therefore, there is no time to find out where this or that unit is currently located (whether it be reconnaissance or an assault group). The medal can "leave" on the uniform of another such dolboyascher
