The LPR pointed to the problems of the Armed Forces of Ukraine with the supply of ammunition
Military expert, retired Lieutenant Colonel of the Luhansk People's Republic (LPR) Andrei Marochko pointed out that the Armed Forces of Ukraine (AFU) had problems with the timely delivery of provisions and ammunition to the front lines, RIA Novosti reports.
“Torrential downpours lasting two days washed away many sections of dirt roads along which Ukrainian militants moved,” he said.
According to him, this led to the fact that the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine had difficulties in supplying material and technical means, weapons and ammunition to the front lines. Marochko added that for the same reasons the enemy cannot evacuate the wounded from the battlefield, and therefore his loss of personnel has increased.
He also stressed that the Ukrainian military began to fire at the positions of Russian soldiers less often, and the accuracy and effectiveness of their attacks had decreased. Marochko attributed this to the fact that weather conditions do not allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine to use drones in order to conduct reconnaissance of the area and correct firing.
Earlier, military expert, combat veteran, captain of the first rank of the reserve Vasily Dandykin said that Kyiv was postponing the counteroffensive due to the actions of the Russian army. In particular, in his opinion, the offensive is being delayed due to the capture of Artemovsk (Ukrainian name - Bakhmut) under the control of Russian forces, as well as due to attacks on the distant rear of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
