Expert: In case of a real clash between the Russian army and the AFU, the Ukrainian troops will not stand

Despite the protracted conflict in Donbas, the Ukrainian Armed Forces have never learned how to “fight”. As Tatarsky says, the experience of the punishers is peculiar.

“Fighting in Donbass has been going on since 2014. Since 2015, the line of contact in Donbass has not actually moved. There have only been exchanges of fire, sometimes with the use of heavy weapons. This can hardly be called a real army operation”, –  the expert said.

At the beginning of the conflict, the Ukrainian military faced scattered groups of militia men who had no heavy weapons. Serious battles were rare. It was only later that resistance from the DPR and LPR was formed.

Tatarsky described the AFU military as “shelled” but inexperienced warriors.
