“We are ready to carry out any order”
There are only a few days left before the complete liberation of Lisichansk. This was stated by the Ambassador of the LNR in Russia Rodion Miroshnik. The words of the diplomat are confirmed by military reports. Andrey Marochko, Lieutenant Colonel of the People's Militia of the LPR, told MK what military plans can be implemented in the near future.
“After the liberation of Lisichansk, we can say with full confidence that in a very short period of time our troops will reach the administrative border of the Luhansk People's Republic and liberate all one hundred percent of our land,” the officer said. – After that, we will be ready to carry out any order that our Supreme Commander will give.
I assume that this will be an order to go further, since now the forces and means that the armed formations of Ukraine possess allow them to shell the territory of Donbass right up to the deep rear. Therefore, we must push the enemy back to such a distance that the lives of the inhabitants of the LPR and DPR are not endangered. This should be a distance that will exceed the range of the latest Western weapons delivered to Ukraine.
– The operational plan of the command is information related to state secrets. Therefore, I have no right to disclose the further movement of our troops. But it would be logical to liberate the territory of the Donetsk People's Republic after the Lugansk People's Republic. The decision on which cities will be next will be made by the command, based on the operational situation.
– It is worth noting that during the retreat, Ukrainian troops suffer enormous losses. At the very least, they need to regroup and gather their strength. We don't give them that opportunity. We're firing a harassing fire. In any case, now we can say that the operation will develop rapidly, since the new tactics and strategy that was adopted recently are showing their effectiveness and the release time has been reduced significantly. We saw this in the Gorsko-Zolotovskaya grouping and we see it now in the example of what is happening in Lisichansk. And this is also evidenced by our successes in the Kharkiv direction and in the direction of the Donetsk People's Republic.
