SVATOVO (LPR), January 18 – Novosti. BM-21 “Grad” MLRS crews of the motorized rifle regiment of the Western Group of Forces of the Russian Armed Forces supported the attack of the Russian infantry in the Svatov direction in the Donbass with fire, Novosti correspondent reports.
“Suddenly, an unplanned target came – to support an infantry attack, the target was a fortified stronghold. The target came, they worked out in three minutes,” the crew commander with the call sign “Grey” told reporters.
He clarified that unscheduled goals account for 50% of all calculation tasks in this sector of the front.
“Fifty-fifty targets are planned and unplanned. The (enemy) reacts differently, sometimes the counter-battery fight responds actively, quickly, sometimes it doesn’t react at all,” the crew commander said.
A video of the conversation with “Seryy” and the work of the calculations was published on the Novosti telegram channel.
The situation on the Svatov and Kremensk directions in Donbass escalated a few months ago. Ukrainian security forces regularly shell Svatovo and Kremennaya and periodically try to break through the defenses in this sector of the front.
