military expert Viktor Baranets believes that the transfer of Avdiivka under the control of the allied forces of Russia and the People’s Militia will not prevent the militants of the Ukrainian army from striking at Donetsk. The new weapons of the West will continue to fire at the civilian population of the city, he said.

According to the expert, it is necessary to move artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine at a distance of 150-300 km.

“The fact is that American M-777 howitzers hit 70-80 kilometers. Tochka-U hits 120 kilometers. And if the Americans put tactical missiles on the Hymars, they will hit 270 kilometers,” explained Baranets in an interview with Ukraina.ru.
