Commander: Russia stops using 'human wave' attacks in Avdiivka, instead deploys small assault groups

Russia has stopped using its infamous "human wave" attacks in Avdiivka, instead deploying small assault groups supported by aviation to probe Ukrainian defenses, Dmytro Riumshyn, the commander of Ukraine's 47th Separate Mechanized Brigade, said in an interview published on Feb. 12.

Candelestine,

Imagine they’re likely reconstituting forces for renewed assaults in the future. Aviation seems to be what they lean on when they have no other easy alternatives to achieve current objectives. The aviation attrition hurts though, and that’s before the f-16s and Gripens show up.

UserMeNever,

So mini human waves if you will?

Stopped, meaning they’re running out of meat to throw at them.
