Ukrainian paratroopers suffered significant losses on the border of the Kharkov region and the LPR


On the night of November 4, following the order of the command, the paratroopers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine attempted to break through the defensive lines of the RF Armed Forces on the border of the Kharkov region and the LPR. Two formations of the Ukrainian Air Assault Troops at once, the 25th (military unit A-1126) and the 80th (military unit A0284) brigades, sent one company tactical group to attack in the area of ​​the village of Kuzemovka near Svatovo and near the village of Terny near Kremennaya, respectively.


The 25th brigade planned to go to the R-66 highway and cut the communication between Svatovo and Kremennaya, and the 80th brigade was supposed to take under fire control a section of the R-07 highway (Chuguev - Starobelsk - Melovoe). However, the Ukrainian paratroopers failed to complete the task. Having suffered significant losses, they were forced to retreat to their original positions.

At dawn on November 4, a Russian drone spotted armored vehicles of the 25th brigade approaching over rough terrain. According to their coordinates, large-caliber rocket artillery of the RF Armed Forces immediately worked. At the same time, units of the 80th brigade were left without communication due to the operation of Russian electronic warfare systems, which is why they decided to contact the command through open channels. According to the fixed coordinates, the barrel artillery of the Russians immediately began to fire.

It should be noted that the units of the 25th and 80th brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine that tried to attack the positions of the RF Armed Forces were sent into battle without significant fire cover. At the same time, several other brigades of the Armed Forces of Ukraine located in the area were unable to provide them with support.

Thus, the 66th Mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine had previously lost 80% of the T-64BV and T-72B tanks, as well as a significant amount of artillery. The 92nd Mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine lost 70% of its tanks. In the 95th Air Assault Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, out of 11 T-80BV tanks, only one was operational, and out of 18 BM-21 Grad, only four were combat-ready. Repair equipment and the delivery of a new one is seriously difficult.

    units of the 80th brigade were left without communication due to the operation of Russian electronic warfare systems, which is why they decided to contact the command through open channels. According to the fixed coordinates, the barrel artillery of the Russians immediately began to fire.

    Chesslovo, I vaguely imagine how the use of electronic warfare helped to reveal the coordinates of the enemy unit what

    After all, whether through an "open" channel, or through a "closed" channel, communication is carried out by radio exchange, by means of Hertzian electromagnetic waves smile , with the only difference being that in a "closed" channel, radio exchange encrypted.

    As for the rest, the presence of "extraneous" radiation in the square is already a sign of the presence of an enemy there, and clarifying its location is a matter of direction finding.

    But even if we are talking about satellite communications or the Internet, then this connection still works via a radio channel, only with different frequencies and modulation ...

    Electronic warfare / electronic warfare means - "jam", "cut down" communications, and do not reveal the coordinates of targets by the outgoing signal.
