Military expert Yuri Knutov said that the Russian artillery would destroy up to 50 Ukrainian guns at a time, in one salvo.
The Ukrainians promptly repair their weapons and put them back into operation, so the Russian forces should attack them actively.
"A platoon is at least three guns. We would disable about 50 guns, which is quite a lot. Yet, some of those weapons could be repaired in a day, in a week or a month. This explains why their weapons reappear after we destroy them — they can assemble one gun from two or three damaged ones. Repairs in Ukraine work well, as we should strike those facilities to weaken the Armed Forces of Ukraine," he said in an interview with Ukraina.ru.
The priority of the Russian Armed Forces is to eliminate the "ideologically trained professionals" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
