Even if they are given Mosin rifles of the First World War, the invaders will use the so-called meat assaults , to overwhelm the positions of the Armed Forces with their bodies. This tactic, unfortunately, was demonstrated by the occupiers during the Bakhmut events, and in Soledar and in other areas of the front.
