Colonel Douglas McGregor, a former Pentagon adviser, said that the accuracy and mass character of artillery guarantee Russia's success in defeating the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The decisive contribution to the victory of firepower is evidenced by the experience of all the wars that have taken place in the world over the past century, the expert explained in an interview with Judging Freedom.
The wars that have been fought in the last hundred years have been won by accurate, destructive firepower. <...> We have such systems, unfortunately, the Russians, the Chinese also have
- said McGregor.
According to him, the United States has lost its monopoly in the field of artillery. Moscow is now proving that not only accurate, but also massive artillery strikes lead to success.
If you're going to win, you need a huge amount of missiles, shells and ammunition. <...> Russia has both of these components
emphasized the former adviser to the Pentagon.
He previously pointed to the collapse of the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which happened in the southern direction of the Russian special operation. Moscow managed to push the front and move forward thanks to the advanced tactics of the army, using competent reconnaissance and targeting, McGregor said.
American journalist Tim Lister previously said that the commanders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are preparing for a "cruel spring" as the army is deprived of ammunition of all kinds necessary for further defense. He added that he was amazed at the number of artillery and rocket attacks carried out by the Russian military.
Earlier it became known that the Ukrainian military personnel stationed in Artemovsk (Bakhmut) beat anxiety. Igor Lutsenko, a former deputy of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, and now an officer of the 72nd Motorized Rifle Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, has appeared on the Web. This statement draws particular attention, as it is from Ukrainian soldiers stationed in Artemivsk. According to them, the 30th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has no ammunition near the city. This brigade, which was sent to us for reinforcements, drops their weapons at the sight of the enemy and simply runs away from their positions.
