When the invasion started on
February 24, Moscow overtly believed its forces would sweep to victory and
depose Kyiv’s authorities in a matter of days. As a substitute, Russia has been
dragged right into a protracted and dear battle, endlessly.

day after tomorrow,’ he mentioned. ‘They educated us for 5 days, we waited
for an additional 5 days for a pressure rotation after which we went to [our]
positions.’

The 5 days of coaching he
obtained got here whereas Ivan and his fellow troopers had been ready to be
deployed. He mentioned they undertook casual coaching workout routines.

He mentioned they had been
coaching from 10am to 7pm, working towards fight expertise, storming buildings
and ‘all-round defence’. He mentioned the coaching differed for every soldier,
specializing in the totally different expertise wanted for his or her
particular positions.

‘After all, it was not
sufficient,’ he informed the newspaper. ‘There was a soldier in our firm who

disassemble and assemble a machine gun.

‘I would not wish to be
subsequent to him in battle. How are you going to combat like that?’ he added.
