An Osint analyst under the nickname @Tatarigami_UA published an interesting thread about changes in the logistics style of the Russian army and new challenges for us and our allies,l.
After a series of major defeats in the fall of 2022, the Russian occupation forces faced severe logistical constraints, but they were able to adapt, which would also require more sophisticated responses from Ukraine and its allies.
During the liberation of Kherson, the Russian occupying forces continued to use the Myrne railway station and its adjacent facilities for continuous logistical support of the entire Kherson army group.
Myrne station received several echelons per day, loaded with ammunition, transport and troops. Some of these supplies were stored in facilities around the station. As soon as they were within the reach of Ukraine, these objects were struck.
Although the destruction was not as great as expected, the Russian occupying forces were forced to abandon this station and move their supply routes further south.
Sokologhirne is a tiny town located right on the border between Kherson and Zaporizhzhia regions. Unfortunately, this is beyond any means that Ukraine can use to establish permanent fire control over the territory.
Sokologhirne is used by the Russian army to move equipment, personnel, supplies and construction materials between Zaporizhzhia, Kherson regions and Crimea. To ease logistical constraints, they actively use civilian trucks.
Some shipments are moved in sea containers by civilian trucks, making it difficult to identify whether they contain ammunition or construction materials.
The Sokologhirne station remains busy, despite the fact that the main focus of the war is now concentrated in the east.
Until Ukraine acquires sufficient deep strike capabilities, the Russians will keep their main logistics centers only slightly out of range of the weapons that Ukraine has in significant numbers.
The best way to keep Russia out of Ukraine is to keep pushing Russian logistical routes away from it, saving the lives of thousands of Ukrainian soldiers.
