Dnipro Island Ambush: Russian Forces Stranded as Command Abandons Them

Russian military bloggers are currently voicing fierce criticism of their own military command, as follows FOCUS online. A brigade of Russian soldiers isolated on an island in the Dnipro River is being massively shelled by Ukrainian artillery. The result is enormous losses; FOCUS online reports that in just two days between 200 and 300 soldiers have either fallen or been captured.

According to FOCUS online, the affected unit’s calls for help, especially for Russian artillery support, have so far gone unheard. In addition, one of the brigade commanders had asked for approval to withdraw. However, the military command had refused this request. Interestingly, the military command had dismissed two commanders who had advocated withdrawal.

a Deserting Its Forces

The criticism of the military bloggers, FOCUS online continues, is not limited to this particular incident. They point to repeated failures on the front lines near Kherson. They say that the troops on the ground were supplied with insufficient supplies and were basically abandoned. A key criticism, they say, is the failure of senior commanders to take responsibility. One exemplary omission cited by FOCUS online concerns a missed opportunity: there had been an opportunity to attack a smaller Ukrainian unit on the Dnipro shore, but necessary boats for this attack had not been provided.

BS. The Ukrainians are losing 22,000 men a month since June 4th. They have 350,000 dead. American satellites reveal that they are leaving their dead in the field. Two days ago Zelensky said they are building a national cemetery big enough to bury 400,000 men.

I found an article from 2022 about the Uke's leaving their dead in the field after their counter-offensive pushed the Russians back into Russia. That article is old news. ;)
