The intensification of fighting in Donbas depends on both the weather and the readiness of the Defense Forces.
The armed forces in the east are receiving Western military equipment, high-precision weapons and are preparing to knock out the Russian occupiers from there, as was the case in Kharkiv region.
This was stated by the spokesman of the Eastern Group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Serhiy Cherevaty told “Channel 24”.
In particular, he named the necessary conditions for intensifying hostilities in the east.
“There are a number of conditions, among which there are natural ones. They depend little on us. This is the condition of the soil, for example, depending on whether it will freeze or not, and what kind of winter it will be. And there are – which depend on us and which we must adhere to. This is prepared, trained, not tortured personnel, the availability of reserves, the presence of the required number of powerful means of destruction. Such work is ongoing,” Cherevaty said.
He also informed that the Ukrainian military receives Western military equipment, as well as high-precision weapons, which the fighters use very effectively.
“An important element of this is the arrival of military equipment from our partners. The better it is, the more likely it is that we will be able to prepare faster. We already have high-precision weapons. We use them very skillfully, very economically and very effectively, essentially reducing their use to one shot – one serious damage. How was it that day in Svatovo, where an enemy unit was hit, a concentration of its personnel, where 20 were killed and 30 wounded,” said the spokesman of the Eastern Group of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
Cherevaty explained when the Ukrainian defenders will force the Russian invaders to flee from Donetsk region and Luhansk region, as was the case with Kharkiv region.
“When we will have this whole kit, as it was in the Kharkiv operation: when we saw that, despite the fact that we do not have a numerical advantage, but we saw the weak points of the enemy, we saw that we had prepared reserves, that we can break through in some areas and force the enemy to flee, we did it. When such a moment comes in the east – in the Donetsk or Luhansk direction – it will definitely be used according to all the rules of military science,” said the representative of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
