Unterwegs mit der ukrainischen Armee: Zwischen Schützengraben und Dauerbeschuss | auslandsjournal

everything has to happen quickly that day we are on the move with the ukrainian army on the southern front from nicolajev we are driving in the direction of hashorn passing abandoned villages now there are almost only military vehicles on the road we hear artillery fire on the horizon rockets are hitting the anti-tank barriers we go to a post not far from the Russian lines so that you understand we cannot show you our entire position under any circumstances we only show what can be seen from the road anyway, in which cars they are driving and in which they are taking out checks I can only say that in the whole area around Herr Sonne our people are quite modest everywhere our people are how many exactly I can't say it's a military secret in the trenches Andree says it's the safest position some of the trenches they were dug by the russians at the beginning of the war they were on the edge of nikolaijev the ukrainians were able push back satan d The leader of the troop takes us to the camp at night there was shelling now the soldiers are trying to gather forces many volunteered at the start of the war from all over the country came here to fight strongly believe in being able to do push back the russians permanently no why should they go back we won't let that happen they just dug some trenches and even that's not complete that's mostly us we've thought it all over the past few months they've lost a few comrades but no one here doubts they'll keep fighting for them from the Ukraine to expel so that life is better and more stable it is possible it is clear it is realistic we have no choice we see 15 to 20 men in the dock satan is an experienced soldier who fought in Donbass and now he is trying to gain ground here with his troops against the russians last month i turned 32 my name is pedro my nickname is satan still from the war in 2016 in 2020 I was twice on leave from the front but it attracted me back to the guys I want to dedicate my life to serving the homeland combat name satan is proud that the russians make him call us that while the others rest he is preparing lunch for breakfast I cooked stewed potatoes for lunch I cook borscht I am the cook for the machine gunners here and if the service doors have to close I take on the duties of the checkpoint commander a commander of everything make soldiers who defend their country with rifles 80 years depend on support and of course we also heard from Andre the demand for help from the West we need as many weapons as possible in as short a time as possible so we can end this war quickly and I want to do it remember Ukraine not only defend their own country, defend their own women. defend Europe as a whole from the Russian invasion if he could have easily taken Ukraine while advancing 100% towards Europe, then such explosions would have been heard in Poland, in Germany and in other civilized democratic states.

I would like to remind that Russian blood gas smells little children's blood of wonderful Ukrainian women no one should forget that we continue to one of the villages that is under constant Russian fire André and so the Ukrainian army determines on this day what they show us what we are allowed to film who we meet like this older couple even though almost all of them left town they stayed in the middle of the war zone they shoot all the time during the day at night a lot sometimes a little as you want it's normal what The most important thing is that they don't hit otherwise they should shoot it's war after all she takes them with us in the house all the time there is artillery in the distance I want to know from her how not to be afraid here, of course we are afraid, but we have to win a little fear, you can control them, but you are also afraid that you will be shot if the electricity works, the washing machine is running she is baking cakes for the soldiers the everyday life in war if the shocks are not too strong we sit on the chair in case of strong attacks we open the cellar door and go up there this has been done by lubov many times she and her amputee husband show them us their basement here in the middle it is safe at least we have the feeling that it is safe but who knows that we already sleep here there is a candle in case there is no electricity when other people are borrowed we invite you to our place they sleep here too until they are evacuated the basement shelves are well supplied canned fruit canned fruit die of hunger says luboff they won't do it We don't have a goat, we have chickens, food packages arrive, we always had food, we got used to stocking up in times of subjects, that's how we get ahead, when we say goodbye there is juice home, it's 39 degrees outside, so we have to drink something, explains Luboff hospitality Exchange with people who are important to us To you why she and her husband stay here I want to know when I say goodbye to her why because it is our home it is our house our fortress when the soldiers return tired and exhausted from the trenches and meet someone on the street then they smile they feel the need for someone to be concerned about them and André says a warm goodbye to both of them On the outskirts of the city he really wants to show us that and that was a school is the local primary school young people whose future is open schools on which they fall russian missiles the contrast couldn't be bigger so André knows it too and that's why he's here with us for them everything is a strategic object everything that is beautiful schools hospitals Supermarkets Asphalt on the street in the town all this has become strategic for they Russian soldiers Russian mothers are all people who do nothing for themselves they see that the neighbor has done everything right and then they want it to be bad by lí also what do i want from andré knowing what he says about amnesty international's accusation that ukrainians are using civilian property like schools for military purposes, deliberately endangering civilians, i want to say ukrainian soldiers are on their own country, if we go somewhere, we have the right to be allowed not to dictate where we should be in the town, in the city, in the school or in some other place that First, second, we know the intentions of the Russians and they are shooting at schools, so we don't stay there on principle and at least get something so we don't have to rebuild so much later.

He doesn't get into some of our questions, like many Ukrainian soldiers in the region, how close they are to Hassan and if he really sees an opportunity to retake the city to displace the Russians from southern Ukraine, he brings us a troop. that operates two howitzers the devices still come from Soviet times they are heavy weapons the most important trump card on the road to success thanks to our artillery and thanks to our little toys here we can win with it we protect the infantry they have room to maneuver and the enemy is actively retreating. Benjamin and his men are attacking the Russian positions, especially the supplies.

He calls on the West to deliver more weapons to Ukraine, of course, more Langstre. The backguns wouldn't hurt. Weapons that go much farther so that we can hit the Crimean bridge or something. Confident in defeating the Russian attackers. That is what we hear from many. André shows us a place where Ukraine was able to push back the Russians in the early days of the war here Seth cries look at it an armored personnel carrier Putin once said we go straight to heaven and they go to hell they are in heaven without shoes they left their shoes here and they are in heaven the elite of the armed forces there they see nicholaev this was a brigade with paratroopers Others tells us that he himself was an officer of the soviet armed forces he was trained in Moscow if he sometimes thinks that his former colleagues You could have fought for the Russians here I ask you colleagues what are we going to call you colleagues when they kill children when they are peaceful killing people colleagues don't get involved in something like this I keep in touch kt with Russian citizens with whom I served who were subservient to me I can say that they do not support putin's policy we are just afraid that they will sit in moscow or in other cities and we are afraid that there are many such people in russia he just killing all opposition leaders putin is not a diplomat or president putin is alone above the unimaginable sounds as unthinkable as so many of his compatriots, to this day andre cannot understand that ex brother is waging all out war against them we did not attack them they came to our country I would like to emphasize that we must end this war quickly so that we have fewer casualties both on our side and on the side of the Russian Federation.

It sounds like an appeal and that's probably what it's supposed to be, the faint hope that this will end. inexorable war
