The commander of the “Bars-13” detachment of the Union of Donbass Volunteers (UDV) Sergey Fomchenkov answered the question of how the presence of Western high-precision artillery in the Armed Forces of Ukraine makes Ukrainian troops capable of a serious counteroffensive.
“This is not a panacea for them, it’s not a miracle weapon,” Fomchenkov said in an interview with the Ukraina.ru portal.
At the same time, he noted that this artillery gives the allied forces certain inconvenience and makes them more disciplined. At the same time, he stressed that it does not solve the problem of the counteroffensive of the Ukrainian forces.
Fomchenkov added that the volunteers are gradually learning to resist Western artillery. He also noted that Russian aviation helps in the fight against it.
