At the moment, the enemy will not be able to take Mariupol the ones he has, they should at least significantly increase. This was stated by the commander of the assault group of the battalion “Donbass” in 2014 Taras Kostaschuk on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine”.
“You have to understand that nothing just happens in some specific place. This means that something happens at all. If they (militants – ed.) leave Shirokino, we go there – it is not just. We know, not only in Mariupol, actually, the direction, and we know, in the other is the regrouping of the troops. Naturally, we must be ready for any, but I don’t believe for example, our battalion is now in Mariupol, all monitor. I must be a terrible idiot or absolutely no respect for his soldiers to throw them now in Mariupol. It is impossible now to take those forces, they should at least significantly increase. Imperceptibly it can be done. Sink some Marines, obvious to us, but worthless from the standpoint of military tactics, but it will not bring results. Therefore, it is necessary to understand, always be prepared for any eventuality, because Putin is unpredictable person that can give any order,” said Kostenuk.
