Military expert Vladislav Shurygin said that he considers the use of Russian special forces during the “military special operation” a tragedy. He stressed that at the moment the special forces are being used for other purposes, writes “Military Affairs”.
Shurygin noted that the command used the 45th airborne brigade near Gostomel as an assault infantry. The same unit was then in the Kherson direction for another month and a half.
“We started, as in the worst times, to use special forces as infantry. Like attack aircraft sitting in the trenches and repelling the offensive. When they ask now: “Where are our special forces, why don’t they run around the Ukrainian rear?” – because our special forces perform the functions of assault infantry, ”the expert said.
It is worth noting that at the moment the West is actively training fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at its training grounds. Training takes place in combat in different conditions, as well as in the use of various types of weapons.
