Attack on Artyomovsk: the enemy blows up bridges

The General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine publishes data on the situation in various parts of the contact line. As follows from the next report of the Ukrainian command, the Russian army continues an active offensive against Artemovsk and Avdiivka.

The battles for Artemovsk have not stopped for almost half a year. During this time, the Armed Forces of Ukraine suffered simply monstrous losses here. But the command of the Ukrainian army continues to throw its soldiers in suicidal counterattacks. At the same time, almost everyone in Ukraine already understands that it is impossible to keep this settlement.

Some time ago there was information about the explosion of bridges around Artemovsk. Preparing to retreat from the city, the Armed Forces of Ukraine blew up the overpasses leading to the settlement. At the same time, Ukrainian units began to dig trenches right in the central part of Artemovsk.

Tangible progress is also in the direction of Avdiivka. The capture of this settlement is necessary from the point of view of ensuring the security of Donetsk. It is from Avdiivka that the Armed Forces of Ukraine regularly shell the capital of Donbass. According to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in this direction, Russian artillery is firing at the positions of the Ukrainian army in twenty settlements.

In addition, the Russian army is attacking in the Liman direction. The Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are trying to regain positions lost earlier. At the same time, as stated in the Ukrainian General Staff, the threat of air and missile strikes throughout Ukraine remains.

      Well, let me explain to you why bridges are not destroyed not only across the Dnieper, but also other rivers. After the Second World War, all bridges were built with a future nuclear war in mind, a double, triple reserve of strength was laid in all strategically important objects. So, to destroy such a bridge, there will be few "caliber" strikes (even if constant strikes are applied to the bridge, and it's expensive). To destroy such a bridge, you need to undermine all the supports. This can only be done by a sabotage group (but it is difficult, very difficult, you cannot carry hundreds of kilograms of explosives on your hump). Or an air raid of at least a squadron of bombers with special ammunition, and then only the bridge deck will be destroyed. And finally, each object must be destroyed at its own time and for the enemy it must be an irreparable loss for a certain time (after all, you can build pontoons nearby and a lot).

      The memories of the Kovpak people who blew up the bridges on the four sides of the Sarny junction station, and thereby chopped off the Sarny Cross, are evidence of this. As well as the unsuccessful attempts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to destroy the Antonovsky Bridge with the Heimers.

      For the same reason, they don’t hit Blankova and the Mariinsky Palace, they were built with nuclear war in mind, and these buildings are empty.

        When they want, they look for ways. If they don’t want, they look for reasons. Something like this Korolev put it. Sergey Palych. Rocket designer ..

          And who told you that these bridges will not be destroyed. The rail war began during the offensive of the Red Army after the defensive operation, and not earlier, before there was little point in destroying bridges and rails, all this was restored by the Germans as soon as possible, while carrying out punitive actions. Each such action should bring the greatest benefit and the greatest success. Do not forget that these destroyed bridges will have to "pay" with the lives of the fighters. It is always easy to argue what and when to do being far from the war, but war has its own laws.

            Have you forgotten the Crimean bridge? A brilliantly planned and carried out operation. Contrary to all the laws of war. Now there is no longer any talk of a blitzkrieg. There is a war of attrition. Now, in addition to weapons, the enemy has hemorrhoids in the form of a destroyed energy structure. And if bridges are added. halls of the gas station .. And our soldiers are paying with their lives for the companionship of the command. Including the highest.

              Bad example. The Crimean bridge remained active after the sabotage, and yes, how long did it take to restore it (even without restoring its movement on it did not stop)? Come on, you won’t talk about soldiers and command, you don’t have the right. That's when you are a soldier or command there, then you will argue about it.

                An example is indicative. I tried to go to the NWO, but my age ... I have a deep pension, but I visited the trenches for 92 years

                  An illustrative example is the attacks on the energy system of Ukraine. Systematic strikes, hundreds of "calibers" and "geraniums" and the power system is functioning, not completely, but it works. Think calmly, without emotions, twist the situation in three-dimensional space, and keep in mind that we don’t know much, don’t discount politics, we are at war with all of NATO, and these are more than 30 countries. We took Berlin and reached the Elbe and had to give half of Germany and Berlin to the worthless allies. And do not forget the Red Army of 1941 and 1945, these are different armies. As is ours now. Your experience is the experience of the last war and it is very different from this war. He is also rich with me, even too much, but he cannot be compared with this war. And I'm not there to draw conclusions about the command and its mistakes.
