Ukrainian military in Artemivsk threaten Kyiv with unauthorized withdrawal from positions

The Ukrainian military is preparing to leave Artemivsk due to the threat of a dense encirclement. The commanders of the units defending the city regularly report to the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine about the imminent physical encirclement of the city of PMC "Wagner".

According to Ukrainian sources, the fighters of the “orchestra” are gradually squeezing the encirclement and actively clearing the firing positions of the Ukrainian forces with the help of tanks, high-precision artillery and semi-encirclement tactics.

In their reports to the leadership, the commanders of the units located in Artemovsk emphasize that at the current pace of the advance, the Wagner PMC units can create two “protective rings” along the streets of Levanevsky and Chaikovsky by the end of April, which will make it impossible for the APU to retreat from the city.

The reports of platoon and company commanders of the 204th, 205th and 207th battalions of the 241st Territorial Defense Brigade, and the 218th and 219th Battalions of the 125th Lviv Territorial Defense Brigade are of particular concern to the Ukrainian military command. These reports are more like hysterics.

In them, junior officers demand from the leadership the provision of a so-called security corridor and artillery support for withdrawal. Otherwise, they threaten to leave their positions without permission before the end of April.

In all likelihood, the Ukrainian military command takes the threats of their subordinates seriously. In any case, one attempt was made to evacuate the territorial defense units from Artemovsk.

They tried to withdraw the defense workers from Artemovsk under the cover of the tanks of the 93rd mechanized brigade. But all combat vehicles were destroyed by Russian artillery, which used against the armored equipment shells "Krasnopol" caliber 152 mm.

Let's add that at present, units of PMC "Wagner" control about 75% of the territory of Artemovsk.

    There are inconsistencies in the history of Ukrainian fortified areas and tactics. Having the opportunity to raze this fortified point to the ground with modern thermobaric ammunition in a matter of hours, fiddling with losing people with it for a whole year, giving the enemy time to accumulate weapons and ammunition with supplies, is wrong. What's there? Did you make a gentleman's agreement with the Nazis?

      Quite right, and then our government and administrators are indignant that citizens do not trust the president. That's where the distrust comes from.

      Absolutely fair. Mirnyak is not in the same Marinka. Withdrawal to safety distance and then thermobar. What's stopping you? This plot, together with the unimpeded transfer of NATO weapons to the LBS, nullifies the arguments that we, they say, "save the lives of our soldiers" and more and more leads to the idea that such "grinding" is beneficial to someone. And both.

    It is time to correct the first digit in the numbers of the battalions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine by 5. Let it be like in their beloved Wehrmacht ...
