All night long we have been destroying convoys to Donbass – Colonel Alekhin.
The purpose of the provocation in the Belgorod region in the form of the transfer of new equipment and troops to the front – became especially obvious after a series of nighttime strikes by Russian batteries in the Kharkov region.
Retired colonel Gennady Alyokhin, the head of the information service of the group of federal troops during the Second Chechen War, told this the channel, PolitNavigator correspondent reports.
Diverted, first of all, from the front line. Now there is already operational information, which has already been confirmed, that through Kharkiv, including, equipment is moved, troops are moved in the direction of Donbass. I mean towards Horlivka, Avdiivka and Marinka. This is such a diversionary tactic.
Moreover, during last night and yesterday there were massive strikes on the territory of Kharkiv region from the direction of Belgorod region. Naturally, all these places of accumulation, relocation, redeployment were hit and destroyed, in a word, this logistics was disrupted. This only confirms this fact,” said the colonel.
However, he did not rule out that the Donetsk direction might not become the main direction.
I would not say that in the plans of the command of the AFU the direction of the main blow to the Donetsk agglomeration goes exactly. This is one of the options. That is why troops are constantly moving covertly, strike fists are being created in one area or another. It should not be forgotten that the situation is the same in the southern direction.
No one has cancelled attempts by the AFU to conduct active offensives in the Zaporizhzhya region – this is along the Orekhovo-Polokhovo line. Some kind of large-scale combat operations will begin in the near future. This is indisputable,” he assured Alokhin.
