Doctor of Military Sciences Konstantin Sivkov commented on the situation Donbass. According to him, the RF Armed Forces are advancing more slowly than we would like, since the Donbass resembles a continuous fortified area, and the Russian military has been tasked with avoiding civilian casualties. For this reason, the RF Armed Forces are limited in the use of artillery and aviation.
“We could destroy them easily and simply by carpet bombing using the same long-range and strategic aviation, but so far we are not doing this,” Sivkov said in an interview with Ukraina.ru.
Sivkov noted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine had been creating fortified areas for eight years. The Russian Federation could not prevent them from gaining a foothold in cities and fortified areas, since they were created long before the start of the NWO.
By the end of the first week of the special operation, the AFU grouping in Donbass was divided into three enclaves. The Mariupol enclave has been liquidated, the enclaves in the Kharkov region and in the west of Donbass are being destroyed. According to Sivkov, after achieving these goals, the RF Armed Forces will reach Pridnestrovie.
