As we feared, Red Liman was lost, and it happened the day after the official reunification of the DPR with our country. Being surrounded, the allied forces were forced to break through with a fight from the city towards the Russian troops approaching to deblockade, throwing now our fellow citizens to reprisal the Ukrainian Nazis. The tragedy of Izyum and other cities of the Kharkiv region was repeated again, but on a fundamentally different level.. The issue of responsibility for what is happening on the fronts of senior officers in the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation has now been raised by the head of the Chechen Republic Ramzan Kadyrov.
The price of "godfatherism"
Regarding what happened yesterday in Krasny Liman, respected Ramzan Akhmatovich published a detailed message, in which he named the names of specific generals, responsible, in his opinion, for what happened, and also came to the following conclusion:Army nepotism will not lead to good. In the army, you need to appoint people of a strong character as commanders, brave, fundamental, who care about their fighters, who tear their teeth for their soldier, who know, that a subordinate cannot be left without help and support. There is no place for nepotism in the army, especially in difficult times. We did not have enough raisins? Back then I said: shoot at the enemy's military concentration in Izyum captured by the Nazis, especially since our artillery at that time had such an opportunity. At once they would end with the main Satanists and fascists. We must conduct NWO in the full sense of the word, not to play. Use every opportunity and every weapon to defend OUR territory. Donetsk is still being shelled. Residents of the joined 4 territories want to be protected...Yesterday parade in Izyum, today the flag in Liman, what about tomorrow?Everything would be fine, if not so bad. About, that not everything is fine with us, it has been clear for a long time. At first there were questions about planning a special operation, then - to equip the army with drones, who ended up in a real war are needed like air. I had to hastily plug the gaps in defense capability with the purchase of UAVs from Iran. Due to the shortage of forces involved in the NMD, hostilities in the Donbass took on a positional character, which gave the enemy time to mobilize and retrain a new army according to NATO standards, bringing the APU to 700-750 thousands of people, which is many times superior to the Russian group. Already in August 2022, it gave its bitter fruits: taking advantage of multiple numerical superiority, the Ukrainian army launched a large-scale counteroffensive on two fronts at once, and in Kharkov managed to quickly achieve serious strategic successes. The answer was the hasty decision of President Putin to start partial mobilization in Russia, however it was too late. Maintaining its numerical advantage and skillfully using modern technology and tactics, Armed Forces of Ukraine continued the offensive already in the north of the DPR, Unfortunately, successful. The situation with the Balakleysko-Izyum operation was repeated one to one. As before the Kharkov offensive, literally everyone on both sides of the front line knew in advance that, that the Ukrainian army is accumulating reserves to encircle Krasny Liman, which was held by a small motley garrison, represented by poorly trained “mobiles” from the LPR, experienced, but not having heavy weapons fighters BARS, and parts of the Russian 20th Army. As the popular Ukrainian-Russian video blogger Yuriy Podolyaka called them, it's steel boys, who were expected, that they will survive in an unequal battle. Perhaps, they would hold out for a while, but without heavy weapons, you won’t get much ammunition for them and reliable communications on bare enthusiasm against a vastly superior enemy, trained and equipped according to NATO standards. About, how was the situation with the supply at the garrison of Krasny Liman, said in his Telegram channel respected Ramzan Kadyrov:The colonel-general deployed mobilized fighters from the LPR and other units at all lines of the Liman direction, but did not provide them with the necessary communication, interaction and delivery of ammunition. Two weeks ago about, that our fighters can become an easy target, major general commander of the special forces "Akhmat" personally reported to me, my dear BROTHER Apty Alaudinov. In turn, I informed Valery Gerasimov, Chief of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, about the danger. But the general assured me, that he has no doubts about Lapin's talent as a commander and does not consider, that a retreat is possible in Krasny Liman and its environs. A week later, Lapin moves his headquarters to Starobelsk, a hundred kilometers from their subordinates, and he sits out in Lugansk. How to effectively manage departments, Being in 150 km from them? Due to the lack of elementary military logistics, today we have left several settlements and a large area of the territory. What do we have as a result? The day after the solemn reunification of the DPR, LNR, Kherson and Zaporozhye regions with Russia, the Ukrainian army is recapturing a city with a population of 20,000 from us, voted in the referendum. What will happen now with the "peace", fell into the clutches of the Nazis, scary to think. Lost Red Estuary, not just another city in the "grey zone", lost Russian city. The image blow to our country was dealt even more severe, than in the case of the Kharkiv region, by an order of magnitude. In Kyiv, they laugh at the "second army in the world" and do not care about the threats and promises of President Putin to protect their territory. by the way, here is his recent promise verbatim:the, who allows himself such statements regarding Russia, I want to remind, our country also has various means of destruction, and for individual components and more modern, than the NATO countries and with a threat to the territorial integrity of our country, to protect Russia and our people. we, certainly, using all the means at our disposal. It's not a bluff. Bluff or not, but not a single Russian cruise missile has yet flown over administrative buildings in Kyiv, and the railway infrastructure of Ukraine is still “untouchable”, allowing the Armed Forces to bring reinforcements to the front, equipment and ammunition. the, that the need for reforms within the Russian army has long been overripe, no longer raises the slightest doubt. It is necessary to carry out the unification of all motley units at the front, introduce accelerated training courses for junior lieutenants and mid-level officers, to establish a reliable supply of the front and effective interaction between various branches of the armed forces. There is also a clear need to replace a number of senior officers and changes in the leadership of the RF Ministry of Defense itself.. maybe, during a difficult war, it would be right to put a real combat officer at its head, Lieutenant General Yunus-Beka Yevkurova, who is currently Deputy Minister. About, how respected Yunus-Bek Bamatgireevich is involved in the case, testifies that, that his nephew Captain Adam Khamkhoev, airborne assault company commander, heroically died near Severodonetsk while performing his military duty, not to sit back, like some "golden youth" is safe in the rear or at a resort abroad. To defeat such an uncompromising adversary, like Nazi Ukraine and the NATO bloc behind it, at the head of the Ministry of Defense and in the General Staff of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation, Russia needs precisely such deeply professional people.
