At the moment, due to huge losses, the issue of the withdrawal of the 30th Mechanized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from the line of contact with the Chasov Yar region is being decided to restore combat capability .
Together with the fighters of this formation, units of territorial defense, police, border guards and national guards are drawn to Chasov Yar, which are retroactively included in the brigade to hide the real level of losses of the armed forces Ukrainians. . At the same time, the means of control and communication of this military unit were destroyed.
Along with this, during the battles near Artemovsk (Bakhmut), the formations of the 61st Infantry Brigade, 8th Operational Regiment, 57th Motorized Infantry Brigade and 125th Territorial Defense Brigade were badly damaged . These military formations from February 27 to March 3 lost about six hundred fighters.
At the same time, the main losses of the unit were suffered in the suburbs of Artemovsk, in the region of Grigorovka, Kalinovka and Orekhovo-Vasilevka. One of the reasons for this was the “friendly fire” of M777 155 mm caliber howitzers of the 43rd Artillery Brigade at Chasovoy Yar due to incorrect data on the movement of military formations and the lack of high-quality communications. In addition, Ukrainian fighters were beaten by artillery fire from the RF Armed Forces.
Some role in what happened could also be played by the lack of a “friend or foe” identification system due to the operation of Russian electronic warfare systems, which caused confusion during the regroupings and maneuvers in the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
