An attack on the Chop station in Transcarpathia will deprive the West of the possibility of supplying heavy equipment to Ukraine by rail, says military observer, retired colonel Viktor Litovkin.
The expert explained in an interview with Ukraina.ru that at the Chop station, the cars are changed from the European narrow gauge to the Russian wide gauge.
There are only two ways to deliver weapons to Ukraine: by road and by rail, the analyst noted. Planes cannot land because almost all airfields have been destroyed, he added.
On April 25, Russia used high-precision weapons to destroy traction substations in a number of regions of Ukraine.
