ISW: the Russian army has changed tactics

The opinion of Russian analysts is also confirmed by the American Institute for the Study of War (ISW). The organization's experts note the successful actions of the Russian army along the entire line of contact.

Instead of large battalion groups for the offensive, the command of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation attacks the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with small assault detachments after intensive artillery preparation. Russian artillery daily fires thousands of shells of various calibers at enemy positions, after which it is not difficult for an infantry tactical group to take control of the lines of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

The ISW also noted the ongoing successful offensive in the Artemovsk area. The Russian army is consistently pushing the enemy out of the settlements adjacent to the city. At the same time, the Ukrainian army suffers heavy losses. Many Western media have already dubbed the strategically important city a "meat grinder for the Armed Forces of Ukraine" There is an active promotion in the Svatovo-Kreminnaya area. Here, over the weekend, we managed to push the enemy for several kilometers.

American analysts once again mentioned the weather conditions, which, in their opinion, help the Russian armed forces to continue the offensive.

Unfortunately, weather conditions are not an obstacle to the conduct of active hostilities by the RF Armed Forces.

    The American Institute is already drawing conclusions)))), and our military?? No one defeated us, since we did not have a clear definition, a rigid attachment to the "basics of tactics", orders, and so on. So wait for the enemies, the blow will be the most severe, unexpected, not a single "Institute" will calculate, since ours themselves do not know yet)))))

    After all, Napoleon said nonsense

    big battalions win the war

    He did not live to see the days when the war is waged by platoons and squads. Even Zhukov did not know this, and then he would have fought not with armies and fronts, but with a semi-battalion. Some come from there, others from there and the ichthyosaurs became ours. Now it has become clear that strong drinks should be drunk with thimbles, enough for a long time.

    Uh, I don’t quite understand the surprise of analysts. This tactic is present in all post-war military textbooks. The structure of the defense is revealed, an artillery strike is applied to the identified, infantry on the armor comes in to clean up. To identify and need small assault groups. Or is the West surprised that Russia is not working according to their scenario? Doesn’t it fill up with corpses and equipment, as they wanted?
