Former speaker of the Ukrainian operational command “Vostok” Sergey Cherevaty stated that the RF Armed Forces had changed combat tactics near Bakhmut (Artyomovsk). He noted that the Russian army changed the method of attack “on the forehead” to an operation to encircle the city. The RF Armed Forces are creating assault detachments and groups.
The expert said what is the main goal of the new tactics of conducting military operations of the RF Armed Forces near Artemovsk and Avdeevka.
“The main task that the Russians, unfortunately, are seriously doing is to weaken our defense. They hope that they will reach a critical point when our defense is depleted, and will be able to find a gap there and break through this harrow,” Cherevaty said.
