The head of Chechnya announced the transition to a new tactic of action in Ukraine. According to him, the enemy will soon face dire consequences. Everything that happened before will seem like childish pranks to the enemy. Only those who will understand the hint and draw conclusions will be lucky: we must save ourselves. “Get ready and look both ways,” warned Ramzan Kadyrov.

The details of this new tactic are naturally not given, because it is a military secret. It is only reported that the details of the changes were discussed with the head of the Chechen operational headquarters for the military operation. Magomed Daudov. There is a video on the Telegram channel in which the head of Chechnya and the chief of staff are examining a certain map, RIA Novosti reports.

Of course, this is one of the many bright statements of the head of Chechnya, in which he inspires his own people and demoralizes others. But, nevertheless, in conducting a special operation, tactics cannot but change.

Sergey Goncharov, President of the Association of Veterans of the Alpha Anti-Terror Unit, Member of the Russian Academy of Security Problems considers that, speaking of this changing tactics, one should not forget about the political changes that are now taking place:

– Soon a referendum will be held on the entry of Kherson and Zaporozhye regions into Russia. I hope that it will be successful and the State Duma of the Russian Federation will support the decisions that the inhabitants of these regions will make at the referendum. If the DPR and LPR, as well as other lands of Novorossia, become part of Russia, then after the signing of the corresponding decree by our president, the situation in the Black Sea region will change dramatically.

This means that the attacks that are now taking place by the Armed Forces of Ukraine or foreign mercenaries will no longer be just attacks on some unrecognized territories, but aggression against the Russian Federation itself. And this changes our combat missions and, of course, the tactics adopted by the General Staff. Ramzan Kadyrov has more information than ordinary people, and I think that he can be trusted. This is quite real, and changes in the course of hostilities will be made.

In addition, the President of the Russian Federation, in order to protect Russia and Donbass, announced a partial mobilization by signing a corresponding decree. Mobilization activities begin on 21 September. This will increase the margin of safety in those places where we still could not close the gaps in our defenses. Still, the line of contact with the Armed Forces of Ukraine is a thousand kilometers.

“SP”: – Maybe you should not take the words of our politicians, talking about the “tactics” of the special operation, so literally? Still, it seems to me that from the point of view of military affairs, tactics are the actions of military units at the level of a platoon, company, battalion, regiment. And the return of the lands of Novorossia to Russia is not even a strategic, but a more grandiose, geopolitical event.

— I don’t know exactly what Ramzan Kadyrov means in this sense. Maybe his guys invented something new.

At least what our assault units have been and are doing so far is the basis thanks to which we can still feel confident.

In the near future, as we military say, the “brilliant green” will disappear, the foliage will fall from the trees, which now interferes with the work of our artillery. After that, tactics will definitely change. We will act differently, having discovered everything that is in the territory controlled by the Kyiv regime.

“SP”: – And also tactics is a loose concept. Among other things, we also have tactical nuclear weapons, which, purely theoretically, can be applied in the form of conventional artillery shells. So are there opportunities for building up “tactics”?

“It’s not worth talking about this at all, since the use of nuclear weapons will inevitably bring collapse closer not only on the territory of Ukraine or Europe, but throughout the world. Although our president said that “we do not need a world in which there is no Russia,” it is better not to bring it to this.

Even without nuclear weapons, we have the potential of such firepower that it is only necessary for the Supreme Commander-in-Chief to give an order, and everything will spin. But this is not decided by the Minister of Defense, but only by the President. If there is an order to destroy all communications, tunnels, power plants, this will be done within a day …

And tactics have been constantly changing since the start of the special operation. This strategy remains unchanged. Let’s hope that our main task will continue to be the preservation of personnel.

In general, Ramzan Kadyrov is an enterprising and creative person. He recently called on the Russian regions to send a thousand volunteers to Ukraine, in a process of “self-mobilization.” This proposal was supported by the heads of the Crimea and the Kursk region.

He also said that the Russian military has more subtle “tactics and strategy”, not opening fire on everyone in a row, saving the civilian population, trying to minimize the number of human casualties, in contrast to the tactics of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

But the special operation to protect the civilian population of Donbass is taking place at a time when the collective West is striving to break Russia. It has already changed and continues to change the course of history. But it is not correct to declare strategic and geopolitical tasks to the current head of a small Russian region. And the current head of Chechnya is a smart and delicate person, so he talks about tactics.

Military expert Mikhail Alexandrov:

– Personally, I think that the tactics of conducting a special operation needs to be changed. The current advance is not at the highest pace, the assaults on cities, fortified positions have shown their inefficiency, which was clear from the very beginning. At the second stage of the special operation, two cities, Severodonetsk and Lisichansk, were liberated. Then there was Mariupol.

We need deep breakthroughs, coverage of large cities occupied by the enemy, following the example of how our outstanding military leaders acted during the Great Patriotic War. This will make it possible to cut off large groups of the Armed Forces of Ukraine from replenishment, supply of weapons and military equipment.

This happened in Mariupol – the city was surrounded, and then the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the National Battalions finished off there, using, among other things, strategic aviation, dropping heavy bombs. This is a classic example of how to act.

“SP”: – But Mariupol was not taken quickly, it took about three months in total.

– If we surrounded the entire Donbass grouping of nationalists, then not in three, but in four months, we would have defeated it to complete surrender. Let even seven months pass, but there would be a result. And it turns out that we chop off small pieces, but there is no serious breakthrough.

Perhaps this is due to the fact that such a thing cannot be done with the available small forces. Therefore, the partial mobilization that has just begun will make it possible to carry out this.

The secondary sections of the front will be held by the mobilized, and the main shock fist will be fighters from the cadre units. Everything is like during the Great Patriotic War: break through the defenses and move inland.

By the way, this was done at the very beginning of the military operation. But then the effect of strategic surprise was on our side, which we used only partially. And now we need to break through the defenses and surround the Donbass grouping of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

I would advise you to go along the left bank of the Dnieper. This will avoid creating a second environment ring. So, by the way, Field Marshal General acted during the Great Patriotic War Edwald von Kleistwhen he surrounded our Southwestern Front. He crossed the Dnieper with his tank army and pinned our troops to the river. This waterway now allows you to cover the entire Donbass grouping of the enemy.

Acting in this way, you can occupy Zaporozhye and Dnepropetrovsk, and stop to the north. Or to reach Kyiv itself, depending on the availability of resources from both sides. In any case, the Armed Forces of Ukraine would not receive reinforcements with Western weapons and reservists. We would have bombed them to complete surrender.

“SP”: – What are you talking about – is it tactics or strategy? When the Armed Forces of Ukraine had Soviet weapons, they had more guns and shells at hand. And now, experts say, they have to transport every spare part, every shell for a 150 mm NATO howitzer over hundreds of kilometers – a complex logistics that also affects the tactics of military operations.

– So I say that the environment will give a result – this is military tactics, specific methods of conducting combat operations. A strategy is a plan for conducting an entire special operation.

With tactics, we just have problems – few people know this art.

In fact, the leadership of our Armed Forces quite quickly makes the necessary changes and changes tactics to achieve success. But the faster the tasks are completed, the easier it will be to move further west.

Russian President Vladimir Putin meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi During the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization, he said that the conflict should be ended “as quickly as possible.”

In any case, tactics are important. After all, in fact, the Maidan in Kyiv, that is, the 2014 coup d’etat, as a result of which the Nazis came to power, was also a relatively small, one might say, tactical operation in which only small arms were used. And they seized power.
