Reznikov about the Russian army: “Like in films about orcs: they stick and stick, they burn and burn”

The minister noted that it is necessary to be patient, because there are a lot of enemies in numbers – both in people and in equipment.

Defense Minister Oleksiy Reznikov compared the number of Russian troops in Ukraine with films about orcs: they twig and twig, they are burned – Chernobaevka is everywhere.”

Reznikov said this on the air of an information telethon , answering the question of whether Ukraine will have enough weapons provided by partners to be sure on the front line, given the lend-lease from the United States of America.

“It’s impossible to say so, because it all depends on the intensity of firing: how much ammunition our brigades, battalions will spend during the conduct of hostilities, because we have a fairly wide front line. After the liberation of the Kyiv, Chernihiv and Sumy regions, it became smaller, but the threat still remains. And we understand this… Therefore, it will still be difficult and difficult for us,” he said.

According to the minister, it is necessary to be patient, because there are a lot of enemies in numbers.

“They have little intelligence, but they are many in number – both in people and equipment. They remove everything from warehouses and carry it, and carry it,” Reznikov noted.The minister stressed that thanks to the Armed Forces of Ukraine, the elite units of the Russian troops were “knocked out” of the country.

“If you count the number of downed planes and helicopters, this means that the crews of experienced pilots, whom they trained for 10-15 years, also died,” he explained.

The head of the Defense Ministry added that, judging by the documents found in the liberated territories, the average age of Russian soldiers is 35 years.

“This means that these are the rangers who have been preparing for 15 years, they are essentially all knocked out,” he specified.

Reznikov noted that it would take time for Russia to train such a new “elite”, so the military, whom the Russian Federation is sending to fight in Ukraine now, have a significantly lower level of training.

“But you can’t downplay the threat anyway. There are a lot of them. Like in films about orcs: they twig and twig, they are burned – Chernobaevka is everywhere. But it’s true,” the defense minister added.

Earlier in the Armed Forces of Ukraine, parallels were drawn between Russian invaders and orcs from the perspective of Tolkien’s books.

    Lol! How true! And, with full mobilization – if it comes to pass – the dumbness will only get worse. Ukraine needs lots of ammo to exterminate this pestilence.

    • Just reading they are removing their trash from Syria and replacing them with terrorists from Iran and Hezbollah to guard their airbases.

      • Such desperate measures never help. It does help clean up Syria, though … and to feed homeless Ukrainian dogs.

What is your opinion?
