No retreat, Ukrainian troops employ calculated withdrawal strategy to exhaust Russian forces:
The Ukrainian forces’ withdrawal from Lastochkyne near Avdiivka, Donetsk Oblast, is a strategic move that aids in wearing down Russian troops, Serhiy Tsekhotskyi of the Yakov Handzyuk 59th Separate Motorized Infantry Brigade said in an interview with Radio Svoboda on Feb. 26.
“There is no retreat of our troops,” Tsekhotskyi stated confidently.
“There is a strategic and calculated withdrawal to exhaust the enemy. While the enemy advances, we are actively engaging and decimating them (Russian troops) in large numbers, including equipment. This tactical approach to warfare is proving effective. There is no need to panic.”
Tsekhotskyi emphasized the paramount importance of preserving the lives of soldiers. The Ukrainian military will continue to destroy the Russian army.
“Lastochkyne is our settlement, it is our land,” he affirmed.
“But it is more important to win this war, rather than to sacrifice thousands of people there, as was done in Avdiivka.”
Regarding defensive preparations on the Avdiivka front, Tsekhotskyi assured that Ukrainian forces are actively engaged in arranging defensive positions and reserve routes.
“Claims of inadequate preparations are baseless,” he emphasized.
“Special services are actively involved, and local administration is providing assistance.”
Despite heightened assault actions by the Russian army in the Avdiivka sector, Tsekhotskyi asserted that the Ukrainian Armed Forces possess the resources for defense.
“We have resources, but they fall short of our ideal quantity,” Tsekhotskyi admitted.
“The enemy’s assaults have increased significantly. In the last day alone, 17 assaults targeted our brigade’s positions. Something is driving them; they understand we are strengthening our forces.” --->READ MORE HERE
