Freezing Russian Troops Giving Away Positions by Lighting Fires: Ukraine

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/world/freezing-russian-troops-giving-away-positions-by-lighting-fires-ukraine/ar-AA14pOir?cvid=8a707672251c45c49c40426fb0168a17


Russian soldiers are giving away their positions on the front lines in Ukraine by lighting fires as colder weather draws in, a Ukrainian official has said.

Serhiy Cherevaty, a spokesman for Ukraine's armed forces, was cited by Ukrainian media outlets as saying that poorly equipped mobilized Russian troops in Ukraine's eastern Donbas region have been left with no choice but to light fires to keep themselves warm.

In doing so, the Russian soldiers are exposing their positions to Ukraine's armed forces, he said.

"The newly mobilized, who have not yet been taught how to properly disguise themselves and not unmask their position, and have poor ammunition—they lit fires, smoked in the trenches—unmasked positions for the artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine," Cherevaty said, Ukraine's Liga News reported.

Cherevaty also said that Russian soldiers are wearing low-quality clothing and boots that are unsuitable for the colder weather.

He said that as more mobilized men are being deployed in Ukraine, lower quality and older stocks of equipment are being used.

Russia's Defense Ministry claimed on October 31 to have completed its partial mobilization of 300,000 men. Russian President Vladimir Putin has said that about 80,000 mobilized citizens have been deployed in Ukraine so far, of which about 50,000 are taking part in hostilities.

Cherevaty said Russian forces have slowed down their attacks in the Donbas region amid worsening weather conditions.

The British Ministry of Defence said last week that challenges that will arise as winter weather draws in will hit the "already low" morale of Russian troops.

Almost a similar scenario in WWII when German soldiers was freezing their butts off in the Soviet Union while Hitler was sitting warm and cozy in his Eagle's Nest.

YOU ARE A STUDENT OF HISTORY.  THE RUSSIANS ARE EITHER VERY POORLY TRAINED AND LED ...OR THEY WISH TO BE CAPTURED.  PROBABLY A BIT OF ALL OF THE ABOVE.  :nod:

Even the most poorly trained should know that you don't do anything to give away your position (fire, smoking, noise, movement, etc.)

Ukraine is NOT a Russian winter. 

A European winter did not stop Patton.
