Russian special operation in Ukraine
The Ukrainian military cannot withstand direct clashes with the Russian army, which is why they use the “tactics of Nestor Makhno”, a revolutionary in the Russian Civil War of 1917-1922, “shoot and run”. This was announced by political scientist and military expert Viktor Litovkin.
As the expert explained, the Ukrainian military began to actively use pickup trucks with small arms mounted on them, similar to those used under the leadership of the revolutionary Nestor Makhno during the Russian Civil War of 1917-1922. “This is the tactics of carts, as Makhno had: they swooped in, shot and ran away. It is used when you do not have enough personnel and military equipment, but you have to snap back, inflict maximum damage on the enemy, ”Viktor Litovkin quotes Channel Five.
According to the political scientist, the transition to such tactics indicates that the Armed Forces of Ukraine cannot withstand the blows of Russian forces. “If they run like that, it means they are afraid. This suggests that we quickly detect them and strike back. Therefore, they act like that, ”concluded the military expert.
Earlier, the deputy head of the office of Vladimir Zelensky, Igor Zhovkva, announced a critical shortage of ammunition in the Armed Forces of Ukraine. He explained the high consumption of ammunition by the high intensity of the fighting. German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius in an interview with an American publication The Washington Post noted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine fire up to 6,000 artillery shells per day.
