The veteran of the special forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs Alexander Arutyunov, known online as Razvedos, on one of his live broadcasts clearly explained the secret of the success of the Wagner PMC as part of a special military operation and stated the crisis of infantry in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
During his live broadcast on the Vkontakte social network, Arutyunov touched on the role of infantry in offensive operations.
“Artillery decides, aviation decides, tanks decide – these are all the components that decide, but the infantryman with a machine gun decides in the end no less than they do. And today we have – attention – not an aviation crisis, not an artillery crisis, and not a crisis of tankers, we have an infantry crisis today, ”the military expert believes.
In his opinion, the only infantry that decides is Wagner PMC.
“What is so special about Wagners? And what’s special about the Wagners is that they train the infantry as expected: with weak reloading [рукой], with a change of working shoulder, with work with sights, with work with equipment. They are preparing the infantry, and therefore the infantry decides with them. That is, where we train the infantry, the infantry works. And if we don’t train infantry, we have an infantry crisis. The armed forces of the Russian Federation today signed in complete impotence regarding the infantry, ”Arutyunov shared his opinion with subscribers.
According to a veteran of the special forces of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, there are currently no combat-ready infantry units in the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation.
“She either died in battle, or plays a role that is not capable of anything. And only PMCs go forward [«Вагнер»]. And, believe me, voicing this, I do not feel joy, I am stating a fact: today there is infantry only in Wagners, there is no infantry anywhere else. When I talk about infantry, I’m not talking about defensive stability, I’m talking about successful offensive assault operations. That is, the capture of settlements, the capture of strongholds, ”Arutyunov explained.
Currently, Wagner PMC operates in the Bakhmut direction, holding the front from Nikolevka-2 in the DPR to the Lisichansk agglomeration in the LPR. The Wagnerites manage not only to hold their positions during the ongoing counterattacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, but also to successfully advance in different areas.
