New Russian-backed terrorist and mercenary strike groups forming in Donbas, destroyed checkpoint No.32

32

 

2014/11/01 • War in the Donbas

The operation to destruct the Ukrainian checkpoint No. 32 was a “combat readiness test” of  Ukrainian troops made by the new strike group consisting of Russian backed terrorists and Russian mercenaries, according to Dmytro Tymchuk, Information Resistance Coordinator.

“A “strike group” of Russian-terrorist forces in the “Luhansk People’s Republic” (LNR) has been organized on the basis of the Phantom Mechanized Brigade (commander Oleskiy Mozhovyi),” he said.

According to Dmytro Tymchuk, the group consist of up to 1,200 people (local militants and Russian mercenaries), up to 20 tanks, 40 armored combat vehicles about 40 units of  conventional and rocket artillery. This group also received many anti-tank grenade launchers, anti-tank rocker systems, Manpads and mortars from Russia.

“The operation to destroy the No.32 Ukrainian troop checkpoint was a “readiness check” of this strike group,” added the expert.

Oleskiy Mozhovyi’s group conducted this operation in cooperation with the Russian mercenaries and “Cossacks” without coordination with LNR leadership.The LNR leadership was only “informed in general terms.” Several formations from LNR arrived at combat zone at the final stage of the operation.

The Ukrainian checkpoint No.32 near Smile of Luhansk Oblast was defended by fighters of the National Guard and 80th brigade starting from September. Being encircled over three weeks, the servicemen did not have any water or supplies. On October 27, the terrorists have the Ukrainian servicemen a “green corridor” until midnight. Then the Ukrainian servicemen were able to leave the encircled checkpoint. The NSDC reports that the losses of the Ukrainian side from the beginning of September at this checkpoint were more than 10 people. Now the “buffer zone” has moved to checkpoint No.31, further West into Ukrainian-controlled territory.

    The Ukrainian soldiers should not have been left in a position. If your troops are surrounded and cut off …you send in reinforcements …..you enforce the cease fire by ending the siege.

    • Don Casavant

      You talk as if you think the senior staff of the Ukrainian Army knows what it is doing! The war with Russia has shown that the senior staff is totally worthless. They are either totally incompetent or they are being paid by PUTLIER to report on future plans and actions to Russia!

      • jimhenley

        Sorry, I no longer blame senior staff….i blame the president….the buck stops with him.

        • Don Casavant

          You may be correct, however I think that Poroshenko has tried to do his best, I don’t think he, the President, is a military man, so I believe he must rely on his staff. In this case he is having a very hard time finding someone that is competent enough to win the war. Yes you are correct, he is responsible for everything in the country. However, he can’t do it all himself!

          • jimhenley

            I appreciate your response. We both want a quick response when Ukrainian troops are in trouble…..I hope the president finds the commanders he needs to keep Ukraine free.

          • Don Casavant

            100% agree with your post! I hope and pray a lot about the same thing!!

          • Don Casavant

            Fine, so you do not like Ukraine, go to a Russian site and brag about your posts.

          • Don Casavant

            We already know that!

          • Don Casavant

            Do the little voices in your head tell you to write these things or do you think them up all bye yourself? Or is there a script given to you that you must follow. Get a life! Go hump some else’ s leg…I am too busy to bother with you any more. Bye!

          Yep, Also you forgot to mention that Putin will become the next Pope.

    No. 32 was a missed opportunity to hit the LPR troops while they were deployed attacking the check point. Highly mobile counterattack units need to be organized to reinforce and relive isolated check points.

    Ukraine should organize a battalion strength task force and hit these guys when they start the same process at CP 31 next door.

    • Don Casavant

      I agree Murf! (By the way our military background is showing again!!!)
      :-)

      • Murf

        Talk about what you know. That’s why I am not on the Home decorating web sites.

        • Don Casavant

          Your not?? Then I think someone is using your name! I think he was using “The Commissar of OZ”!

          • Murf

            That’s me being a wise ass.
            What branch were you?
            I was army, 19D Cav Scout, mostly Reserves. Then an Armor officer on M-60A3, later M-1 and Bradley.

            USN, Drove A-4 Sky-hawks doing air-to-mud support, three tours in Nam!

          • Murf

            Shit Don you were the real deal. What do you thin of them sidelining the A-10?

          • Don Casavant

            Never met an AF driver that didn’t love the Hog. Never met an AF General that didn’t hate the Hog! There are valid reasons that I won’t get into here.

          • Murf

            I’ll wager you will never meet a ground pounder who hated it either. Oh well, maybe Poland or Ukraine will buy them. That would the Rebels a new reason to change their underwear.

          • Don Casavant

            You betchem! I agree my friend! Especially tank drivers! Of course a section of F-16s loaded with Smart Pigs would ruin a battalion worth of tanks whole day, week or year!

      I think the rest of the territory in Ukraine that needs defence against possible soviet attack is much too great, hence they don’t have the necessary sources to organize counterattack, only defensive positions. Which are slowly, but surely being pushed back.

      • Murf

        Thanks for the response.
        That is exactly why they need to take a more limited offensive strategy using speed mobility and surprise to strike the enemy were they are not expecting it. Thus keeping they off balance.

        Rapidly move the assault force to within striking distance. They should “come out of nowhere.”

        Quickly seize the objective.

        Rotate the Assault force with a lighter defensive garrison while fortifying the area.

        Repeat as needed.
        Speed and surprise are the key.

        Target areas that are weakly held.
        Bear in mine the DPR/LPR don’t have a lot of manpower either. Maintaining a static defense you surrender the initiative allowing them to concentrate their forces and achieve local superiority.

        Make they dance to your tune.
