The expert explained why Ukraine does not destroy echelons with Russian equipment

Getting into the echelon with a rocket is not so easy, and the issue with mines also has its own nuances.

The expert explained the difficulty of destroying railway echelons /

Military train echelons are a difficult target that is not so easy to kill. In addition, military personnel usually go ahead of the echelon and look for mines that can be planted in the railway track.

Ivan Yakubets, military expert, member of the expert council of the Center for Army, Conversion and Disarmament Research, reserve colonel, commander of the Airmobile Forces of Ukraine in 1998-2005, explained on the air of the FREEDOM TV channel that the echelon is a moving object. In addition, it is narrow and it is not so easy to get to it with a rocket.

“It is quite narrow and it is not so easy to get into it with a missile, even the same HIMARS, but it is definitely possible to get into it. You can get into the railway line, but such a line is repaired within a day, or even faster,” he added.

According to Yakubets, it is also necessary to take into account the range where the military echelon is located.

“There is one more point – these are the actions of subversive and reconnaissance groups. Russian sappers are working against such groups, who go ahead of the echelons, look for planted (mines – ed.) so that they are not on the railway tracks,” the expert noted.

The role of the railway in the war of the Russian Federation against Ukraine

The Russian occupiers are transferring military equipment and personnel by rail. In particular, in this way, Russians are transferred to the territory of Belarus.

Thus, the “Belarusian Gayun” monitoring group reported that Russia has transferred two more echelons with personnel and military equipment to the territory of Belarus. In total, at least 91 units of equipment and about 200 personnel arrived in Belarus from Russia that time.

Military expert Oleg Zhdanov said that the Russian army still functions according to the standards of the Soviet one, which was imprisoned during the Second World War. This concerns the issue of overturning echelons of equipment, therefore, railways are “bloody arteries” for Russia.
