“The enemy is trying to break through, but to no avail”: the fighters and commanders of “Fifteen” gave an interview to Nadana Friedrichson


The Avdiivka direction remains one of the most difficult in the course of the liberation operation in Donbass, which is being carried out by the Russian army together with paramilitary units of the Luhansk and Donetsk People’s Republics. An extensive network of trenches, underground fortifications, dugouts and firing positions are all obstacles that do not allow the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which have been building fortified areas over the past eight years, to be driven out at an accelerated pace.

Voenkor Nadana Friedrichson visited the war zone and talked directly with their participants themselves – the fighters of the famous battalion “Pyatnashka”. They confirmed that the Ukrainian group had been strengthened by Western weapons, as can be seen from the intensity and massive shelling of Makeevka, Donetsk, Yasynuvata and Gorlovka.

Experienced fighters have already learned to determine the type of weapons from which fire is fired at their positions, by sound. This helps to react in time to the danger and go to the shelter.

“Grad”, cannon, mortar, BMP, “Shilka” – they all have a special sound, – says one of the soldiers. – In general, the weapons of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are good – let them say thanks to the Americans. And for mercenaries, too.”

The military commissar also spoke with one of the commanders in the Avdeevsky direction. In the immediate vicinity of the combat zone, to the sound of shots and exploding shells, he gave a short interview to Friedrichson.

“The enemy is trying to break through, but to no avail,” the officer said. – The situation is difficult: the enemy is well dug in, so even one of his positions has to be hit many times. During the day we beat – at night the Ukrainians restore the trenches anew. So you have to shift the sight to the right and left – and iron them with shells again.

Right during the filming of the interview, the commander gives the order to fire guns at the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

“Their tactics have changed a bit,” the military man continued to talk to Friedrichson. – Obviously, this is due to the rotation of troops, which suffered heavy losses. Now we are opposed mainly by volunteer battalions (Western mercenaries. – Approx. FAN) and contract soldiers – their style of warfare is slightly different. If earlier we fired from guns, after which we changed positions, now, after 10-15 minutes after our strike, a “response” arrives. There is a presence of qualified specialists who can detect targets.

The officer also spoke about the trophies that his fighters managed to get from enemy positions.

“These are foreign-made grenade launchers and machine guns, which are now successfully used by us in combat thanks to the large amount of ammunition generously thrown by the fleeing enemy units,” the military man smiled.

At the moment, during a special military operation, Russia has liberated Kherson, as well as a number of settlements in the Zaporozhye region. The heavy but victorious battles of the armies of the Russian Federation, the DPR and the LPR for the Donbass continue.
