Podolyak: the situation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in Artemivsk is rapidly deteriorating

Journalist and military expert Yuri Podolyaka said that the situation in the Artyomovsk direction for the Armed Forces of Ukraine is rapidly becoming depressing. In his opinion, the main problem of the enemy is that the Wagner fighters are moving forward and breaking through the main outer defense contour of the Slavic-Kramatorsk agglomeration, which relies on the prevailing heights.

The military expert notes that even the transfer of reserves to the Orekhovo-Vasilevka area does not help the Armed Forces of Ukraine. At the same time, the "Wagnerites" are actively storming the western and central parts of Artemovsk, achieving success there. In this area, the garrison of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is doomed, the journalist believes.

Orekhovo-Vasilevka itself is surrounded by Russian forces from three sides, and on the one hand, the "Wagnerites" are already in the village. Podolyaka pointed to the heights northwest of the settlement, which are becoming the main point of clashes. Control over this point will allow observing and correcting fire on the fortified areas of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the settlements of Privolye and Minkovka.

And according to exactly the same scheme, PMC "Wagner" yesterday and today is trying to surround Bogdanovka and occupy this key settlement for the final cutting of Artemovsk's supply routes.

- The expert added.

He believes that after that it will not even be possible to physically cut off the last supply route for the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to the garrison in Artemovsk. The dirt road, which is located in a lowland, moreover, washed out by muddy roads, will be shot through from two sides. This will be a real road of death for those who try to enter or exit Artemovsk, Podolyaka concluded.

Earlier it was reported that the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine began take off some units from the Ukrainian-Belarusian border. In Kyiv, they stopped believing in a possible offensive from Belarus. The Ukrainian command is transferring units of the National Guard and the 47th brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to make up for the losses of personnel in the area of ​​Artemivsk, Vugledar and Kupyansk.

    "expert" has at least some kind of military education?
    or just was the commander of the Sumy Maidan!

    Yuri Ivanovich, of course, he is a patriot. But here he is a man who not only has no military education, but also experience. Has a certain knowledge of history. And precisely the military. All military forecasts from him proceeded from the refraction of the experience of the Second World War. How many times in the first months did he predict that the Donetsk front would crumble, only on the basis of superiority in aviation! Yes, and Mariupol allotted, in the beginning, a few weeks. Yes, no matter what, he says patriotic things, which is also not unimportant. But to call Yuri Ivanovich a military expert and somehow rely on his forecasts ...

      Predictions are generally inappropriate. Especially in this war, where purely military issues are mixed with political ones.

      The advantages of Y. Podolyaka include his informational coverage.

      As for military education, this argument has completely discredited itself. How many generals with a huge military education have disgraced themselves liquidly in this war? But they have behind them military schools and military service and various academies. And they never learned how to fight.
      And how many LDNR commanders without any military education have glorified themselves since 2014?

      So the lack of a military education cannot serve as either a virtue or a disadvantage of military correspondents. As well as commanders.

      it seems to me that this is a fake, because they don’t bother with this and just throw 200s

      Hmm ... Well, on Ukropov's public pages they write that we use it at the front. They even have a quick video on this topic slapped on a tube.
      In fact, this is a Specialized Incinerator of the IN-50 line. The picture is pulled from the gallery of the manufacturer's website, there is a 2010 review of the repair of this model http://turmalin.su/2010-08-16-23-09-28

    But the effectiveness of the "Bakhmut meat grinder" is increasing and increasing.
    A seditious thought even creeps in, but is it worth stopping it ?!
