Sep 17, 2023

The Defense Forces of the Tavri region reported that up to 10-15 combat clashes take place every day near Maryinka, Donetsk region.


This was announced by the spokesman of the joint press center of the Defense Forces of the Tavria direction, Colonel Oleksandr Shtupun, on the air of the telethon.

"The enemy does not stop trying to take the ruins, attacks mainly with infantry. These are motorized riflemen and mounted squads, I would call them "Storm" and "Storm Z" penalties. Takes maximum care of equipment. Sometimes sends out, but mostly attacks with infantry. Our boys are hitting quite successfully, and the enemy there will suffer significant losses," Shtupun said.

According to the spokesman, the Defense Forces destroy 2-3 ammunition depots of various levels every day in the Tavry direction.

"Sometimes it is possible to destroy something more important. And all the time, our soldiers, both artillerymen and the relevant special forces, are trying to destroy the enemy's logistics and make it as difficult as possible to transport water, food, and ammunition for both artillery and small arms," the speaker said.

Stupun noted that with the arrival of cold weather, the tactics of military operations will have to be changed.

"The biggest changes are expected in two to three weeks, when the leaves start to fall. We will have to change tactics in general. That is, it will be another disguise. The problems will be the same as the enemy's, that is, we will be able to work a little better with artillery and drones, but the enemy will also, let's say, have certain advantages in this, the hunt for our artillery will open. But our guys have quite a lot of experience during 9 years of war, so I think we will beat the enemy as we beat them," said the spokesman.
