Real friendship is what matters.

War only helps to understand this.

I want to say thanks to my friend Dimko today. Maybe, the equipment he sent saved my life a couple of times. 🧵 Our friendship with Dimko started a long time ago.

We went to high school together and used to hang out a lot, as usual teenagers. Then we both moved to Lviv, Dimko went to Polytechnic University and I started my studies at Military school there.

What our unit did for Kharkiv offensive to succeed 🧵

We prepared for this operation several weeks and trained years before this moment. Now, I can disclose some details. Weeks before the operation, we captured Russian TMM-3m2. These Russian bridge deploying vehicles were used in this operation. They are now effectively serving Ukrainian army needs.

How can we win the war with the Russians despite RU having unlimited armor and resources? Here are some key differences between UA and RU armies:

• Manpower and army composition
• Command structure - Centralized vs decentralized
• Usage of the combined arms
🧵🧵🧵 Both UA and RU armies have common roots in the giant Soviet military. The Soviets had many conscripts and armor but lacked skilled soldiers and had incompetent command. It was incapable of rapid deployment and wasn't combat-ready.

What I did to destroy Russian pantonne bridge over Siverskyi Donets - a thread 🧵

Here you go -> -> -> The context:

I am UA military engineering + EOD officer. I have served one turn in Donbas prior to the recent invasion.

Recently, I have accomplished a mission which made huge impact on Russian losses and completely screwed up their plans to encircle Lysychansk.

It's crazy, sometimes I forget what it's like to live without war. When I see ruined cities, corpses, when I sleep on the floor in ruined houses or in the woods, I think it's normal. When I see photos from cities where life is bustling and there is no war, I understood I forget life before war. This is not normal, but it is real. It is extremely difficult for me to imagine how children who survived the horrors of war feel.
