High morale is easy to have as you go forward. When you storm the same fortification for the 10th time and all those with whom you started your service are torn to pieces near this damned greenery, then the morale of any unit will disappear. Moreover, the fortifications are stormed not by specially trained special forces or MTRs, but by infantry. Infantry is mobilized. Half of them just drank at the training ground and did nothing, the other half were taught to simply handle weapons and sent into battle. Some, however, have now begun to be taught, although they have been in the army for half a year.
After mobilization, they created a bunch of artillery regiments without artillery and some kind of battalions. They carried out an ideological sabotage with people: they said that they would not be sent to the front line, but they would serve on the "second and third lines." When they did get to the front, they experienced a culture shock. It turns out that it will be necessary to fight, which means going to the assault. There is no one else to go on the assault. The personnel units of the Corps ended a long time ago. The mobilized in the LDNR have already ended, but the war has not ended. Orenburg, Perm, Irkutsk, etc. will have to go into battle. peasants. Not everyone has a motive.
I said the first reason for the lack of motive at the very beginning: an assault, which means that someone will definitely be killed or injured, but there may not be a result. (Each of us reads, listens to the year of the summary of the assault on Avdiivka and Maryinka, for example, and understands this). In the Great Patriotic War, this issue was resolved by detachments, tribunals, etc., because no matter how you train the personnel, an assault is ALWAYS killed and wounded. (Do not tell me about the harsh Stalin and his order, but just try to calculate how many people ruined at least Marshal Konev).
Yes, and what can be taught to people if, after storming enemy positions, enemy artillery simply throws you. We have nothing to suppress, except for the VERY scarce Lancet, which means we will need new mobilized ...
In addition to the military and military-technical component, in order to successfully complete this war, we need to decide whether this is necessary at all? Why these sacrifices? How a person will literally go to a mortal battle, knowing that in the rear, not for everyone, he is now accomplishing a feat. Knowing that some Leybin ("Russian reporter") demands to recognize the crimes of the Russian army. Millionaire bloggers operate in the rear, each issue telling how Russia unleashed an unjust war in Ukraine, degenerates from RUDN University hang out an enemy trident, and in some other institute they can hunt a guy or a girl for supporting the SVO. How to go into battle when the son-in-law of the Minister of Defense shows a disregard for what is happening in all his social networks. Okay, grain and ammonia deals... Somewhere we shove ammonia, somewhere they sell us the necessary parts for rockets. Somewhere we sell gas, but they don’t blow up the South or some other stream. We will not get into this issue - there is such an equation with a bunch of unknown denominators and, as I said, it is not clear who will be worse off if we cross some "red lines", but society must be mobilized. And any filthy mouth that stinks about "the crimes of the Russian army", "aggression" must be shut up. Not just a phrase about an inogen at the beginning of the video, but a criminal case.
You can’t send soldiers to death with one hand, and feed those who betray it with the other.
“Every kingdom divided against itself will be desolate, and every city or house divided against itself will not stand.” Matthew 12:25
Vladlen says russian most mobilized dont get serious refresher training, are lied to that they'll be defending in the 2nd and 3rd lines, and are then sent to assault.
He believes russian counterbattery fire is nonexistent, which leads to places like marinka and ugledar never being taken.
