In Artemovsk, the Russian army is confronted by foreign mercenaries and untrained mobilized

Kyiv is trying to save the most trained units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for a possible spring offensive, so foreign mercenaries and poorly trained soldiers from among the recently mobilized are participating in the defense of Artemivsk. The Times writes about it.

The publication of the publication mentions truck drivers and builders who, without proper training, were sent to one of the most intense areas of clashes. As a result, the defending side suffers heavy losses.

The result is an often desperate and often deadly defense by volunteers.

writes the Times.

Among the volunteers in the defense of Artemovsk are mercenaries from Europe, Canada and the United States. Significant losses of personnel are forcing the command to withdraw thinned detachments of soldiers from their positions. Many of the Ukrainian recruits note a big difference between training on the training grounds and the situation in real combat conditions.

Our detachment had to hold the defense. However, it was not as easy as it seemed. Where exactly was the line? They attacked us from behind

- the newspaper quotes the words of the former builder.

Thus, Kyiv is betting on the upcoming supply of Western weapons and preparations for the spring offensive, and in the meantime sends its own citizens to the slaughter.

    It is we who are at war with unprepared mobilized and for which month we cannot take Artemovsk, but what if they had real military personnel?

    In general, it is annoying that only the lazy did not speak out about the spring offensive. Just wondering: with what forces will Ukraine carry out this very "offensive"? That is, either the banderlogs hid a five hundred thousandth army with foreign armored vehicles somewhere, or this army will enter from the territory of Poland. Or Romania. Doesn't matter. The main thing is that there will be an offensive, and no one knows with what forces
