From @rybar showing Wagner Group combat work
The Wagner PMC units were tasked with occupying a platoon stronghold in a forest belt in Zaitsevo
When creating a Armed Forces Ukraine (AFU) stronghold, they competently used the tactical properties of the terrain. Dense vegetation makes it difficult to observe both from air and ground. Complicated terrain created additional difficulties for the advancing forces.
The stronghold itself was a very difficult object for an assault: a developed network of trenches, dugouts and hidden communication passages.
The stronghold was located at a dominant height, which allowed the enemy to correct fire from it for many kilometers.
During the assault, Wagner PMC units interacted with their air reconnaissance, which transmitted data on the location of the enemy. 2 groups of “PMC Wagner” were first to cut through the forces of the AFU at the stronghold, and only then proceed to occupy the trenches.
The task was completed and the Ukrainian stronghold in the Zaitsevo region was eliminated.
