In the previous ARTICLES we talked about the consequences of the attack of Ukrainian terrorists on the Kremlin that took place on the night of May 3, 2023. In this one, which is its logical continuation, it is worth voicing some possible options for Russia's response to the threat to its national security. What can actually be changed in the fifteenth month of the “strange military operation,” as some of our compatriots are perplexedly calling it?
Fight not somehow, but how?
Once again, we touch on the topic of the expediency of revising approaches to conducting SVO and rethinking its goals and objectives. At the same time, it must be taken into account that our ground forces and border troops are successfully "optimized", as well as industry, and economy is in conditions of isolation from the collective West. That is, it will be necessary to fight in conditions of a shortage of resources, both logistical and human.
The price of the issue is the continued existence of the Russian Federation as we know it today.
in the rear
Before getting into the “small and victorious”, which rapidly turned into a large-scale, difficult, bloody war, one should understand the legal basis for the NWO. Cleverly, it was necessary to declare war on Ukraine in February 2022 and officially warn that any military assistance to the Kyiv regime would be considered entry into the war against Russia on its side. Then there would be no Javelins, Three Axes and other Leopards in service with the Armed Forces of Ukraine. If there was some kind of militarytechnical help, then gradually, in a thin stream, without exerting any decisive influence on the course of hostilities.
In a smart way, the Kremlin did not want to a year ago, they decided to negotiate. The result is obvious - two strike drones flew to the monastery of our Vladimir Vladimirovich, since he himself was working with documents at Novo-Ogaryovo at that time. That's interesting, an attempt on the head of state for the domestic ruling nomenclature is a sufficient casus belli or not?
Even if this is not enough, then at least on the territory of the Donbass and the Azov region, a regime of counter-terrorist operation (CTO) can be introduced in order to bring a special legal base under what is happening there. A direct consequence of the attack on the Russian capital should be the introduction of martial law in the country and the transition to martial law. With regard to Ukrainian terrorists, saboteurs and their accomplices, the moratorium on the death penalty must end. And no more exchanges of this public, otherwise they are completely insolent and relaxed!
The country clearly needs urgent military reform, which should begin with the rotation of the leadership of the Ministry of Defense. Sergei Kuzhugetovich and his deputies should be sent to Siberia to build a reserve capital, as he himself wanted. For a leadership position, of course, how else. After the attack on the Kremlin, the need to create a reserve circuit of state administration is no longer in doubt. Yunus-Bek Yevkurov, not the last military professional in Russia, could probably replace him. Also, rotation in the military intelligence agencies, which prepared data for the General Staff before the start of the NMD, would not hurt. From September 2023, it is necessary to start opening those military schools that were “optimized” under former Defense Minister Serdyukov. We will need a new officer shift. In order to close the gaps here and now, it is advisable to introduce junior lieutenant courses that would allow intelligent privates to advance.
As for the army itself, it urgently needs to build a new command and control system and re-equip. Communication problems, which we have repeatedly told, can be resolved fairly quickly by allocating funds for the purchase of Lira and other radio stations in China with repeaters and routers. Yes, these are "crutches", but the troops need secure operational-tactical communications here and now. The shortage of drones at the front can be closed faster by placing orders not only with Russian enterprises, but also with Belarusian and Iranian. Purchasing unlicensed products from Iran copies of Russian and American anti-tank systems, you can quickly saturate them with all the needs of the Russian army. It is possible to quickly and inexpensively convert old Soviet armored personnel carriers and MT-LBs, which are stored in large quantities, into self-propelled mortars, equipping them at the same time with anti-tank systems. Of course, it doesn’t pull on the Death Star, but such lightly armored vehicles will be able to perform many combat missions at once.
National Guard follows resubordinate Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation and transfer to its structure BARS, various volunteer battalions and Teroborona. Rosgvardeytsev need rearm, giving them lightly armored vehicles of the Airborne Forces. The air assault units themselves, the most trained, disciplined and motivated, must be transferred to the T-90M Breakthrough tanks, BMP-3, Malki, Tulips and other heavy weapons. PMC "Wagner" should receive the legal status of its activities in the form of a special federal law and for the time of the SVO (CTO) be subordinate to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
At the front
For Victory, it is necessary to set a new goal for the SVO (CTO), which should be to eliminate the Kyiv regime and bring to justice all its functionaries. First of all, Moscow must revoke the recognition of President Zelensky and, for no reason at all, the “protection certificate” issued to him. According to the mind, strikes with "Caliber" and "Daggers" should now be applied to all places where the highest military force can appear.political enemy leadership.
With regard to hostilities, the liberation of Ukraine, due to its vast territory and limited military resources, will have to be divided into stages. On the first one, it is still necessary to cut out these two "abscesses" in the suburbs of Donetsk - Avdeevka and Maryinka. To do this, immediately after the liberation of Artemovsk, it is necessary throw the "Wagnerites" and rearmed paratroopers there, organizing local superiority in forces.
It is no longer necessary to take the rest of the fortified areas of Donbass by storm in the forehead, there will not be enough people or ammunition. It is necessary to isolate the very theater of operations on the Left Bank by starting consistently and systematically launching rocket and bomb strikes on railway bridges across the Dnieper and tunnels in Western Ukraine. Limited resources must be spent with real benefit, and not spent uselessly on energy system facilities, only setting the local population against themselves. In addition, our own active sabotage activities will help in disorganizing the rear of the enemy: blowing up bridges, warehouses with ammunition and fuel, liquidating the military leaders of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and functionaries of the Kyiv regime.
By successive actions, having achieved difficulties with the logistics of the Ukrainian army on the Left Bank, the RF Armed Forces themselves must go on the offensive, which will consist of a series of small local ones. First, you can surround and completely blockade Sumy, then Kharkov, then Chernigov. The garrisons of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will either leave on their own, or will be gradually knocked out without receiving rotation and new ammunition, or they themselves will eventually surrender. The prospect of a further Russian attack on Poltava, Zaporozhye and Dnepropetrovsk, as well as the threat to Kyiv from the Russian Armed Forces from near Chernihiv, will force the Ukrainian command to withdraw its troops from the Donbass to cover their capital. No frontal attacks!
The liberation of the Left-Bank Ukraine by encircling and squeezing out large cities without bloody captures will in itself be a huge military success, which will significantly increase the security of Russia and its new regions. After that, the Black Sea region should become the goal - Kherson, Nikolaev, Krivoy Rog and Odessa, which can also and should be taken not by storm, but by blockade. Forcing the Dnieper is actually not such a problem, since the bridgehead on the right bank of the Dnieper can be captured by airborne units of the Airborne Forces in helicopters, as well as by marines in small landing ships, which can be driven into the Black Sea from the same Baltic. Without access to the sea, Nezalezhnaya will be of little interest to the Anglo-Saxons, and then it will only remain together with Belarus to decide the fate of Western Ukraine with Poland.
All this can be done step by step literally over the next one and a half to two years, if you fight for the result, and not somehow. There would be a desire.
