Defense Express reports:

Ukrainian forces blocked the Russian troops at the Vovchansk Aggregate Plant. The Russians cannot leave the territory of the plant, because they fall under artillery fire and drones. And their support cannot reach them because of it. "The optimal option in this situation is to leave them unarmed and surrounded. With no food, no water, no weapons, they will have to surrender."

The Defense Forces of Ukraine blocked russian occupiers at Vovchansk Aggregate Plant. Ukrainian military expert, flight instructor, a reserve colonel of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Roman Svitan assessed the events in Volchansk on the air of 24 Channel.

He noted that he would call it a "fire pocket." This happens when artillery begins to cut off ammunition supply points to some of the positions, as in this case.

"Our artillerymen realized that they could be cut off, because there are only a few lines that russians could use to get into that plant. They crawled into it, but now they are in trouble," Svitan noted.

According to the expert, russian occupiers cannot leave the territory of the plant, because they fall under artillery fire and drones. And their support cannot reach them because of it.

 

"The optimal option in such a regime isbe to leave them unarmed and then they will surrendered. With no food, no water, no weapons, they decide to surrender. russians will not come up with anything new here," the military expert added.
