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 past abandoned villages now there are almost only military vehicles on the road we hear artillery fire on the horizon rockets hit past anti-tank barriers we go to a the post not far from the Russian lines so that you can understand it we cannot show you our entire position under any circumstances we only show what can be seen from the road anyway, on which cars are driving and on which checks are carried out I can only say that on the whole area around Herr Sonne our people are I'm quite modest everywhere our people are how many exactly I can't say it's a military secret in the trenches says Andree it's the safest position some of the trenches were dug by the Russians at the beginning of the war they were on the verge of nikolaijev the Ukrainians were able to push back Satan d he leader of the troop leads us to the camp at night there was shelling now the soldiers are trying to gather forces many volunteered at the beginning of the war from all over the country they came here to fight they firmly believe in being able to push back the Russians permanently no why should they coming back we won't let that happen they just dug a few trenches and even that isn't complete that's mostly from us we've thought it all over in the last few months they've lost a few comrades but nobody here doubts that they'll keep fighting

for them from Ukraine to expel so that life becomes better and more stable it is possible it is clear it is realistic we have no other choice we see 15 to 20 men in the dugout satan is an experienced soldier who fought in the Donbass and is now 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 drew me back to the boys i want to devote my life to serving the fatherland combat name satan he is proud of that the russians would have him like that called tells us while the others are resting he is preparing lunch for breakfast i cooked stewed potatoes for lunch i cook borscht i am the cook of the machine gunners here and if the duty doors have to go i take on the duties of the checkpoint commander a commander of everything make soldiers who defend their country with 80-year-old rifles they are dependent on support and of course we also hear from Andre the demand for help from the West we need as many weapons as possible in as short a time as possible then we can end this war quickly and I want to do it remember that Ukraine not only defends its own country, it defends its own women defends Europe as a whole from Russian invasion if you could have easily taken Ukraine while going 100% further to 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 gas for blood smells blood from small children from wonderful women of the Ukraine nobody must forget that we continue to one of the villages that is under constant Russian fire André and thus the Ukrainian army determines on this day what they show us what we are allowed to film who we meet like this older couple although almost everyone else left the village they stayed in the middle of the war zonea they shoot all the time during the day at night a lot sometimes a little as you want it's normal the most important thing is they don't hit otherwise they should shoot it's war after all it 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 overcome the fear a bit, you can control them, but you are also afraid of being shot if the electricity works the washing machine is running she is baking cakes for the soldiers everyday life in war if the impacts are not too strong we sit on the chair in case of strong attacks we open the cellar door and climb in there this has lubov done many times she and her amputee husband show them us your basement here in the middle it is safe at least we have the feeling that it is safe but who knows that already here we sleep 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 cellar shelves are well stocked fruit

preserves canned fruit starve says luboff they will n Not we have a goat, we have chickens, we get food packages, we always had supplies, we got used to stocking up on subject times, that’s how we get through, when we say goodbye, there is homemade juice, it’s 39 degrees outside, so we have to drink something, explains Luboff hospitality to us Exchange with people that is important 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 rifle ditches and meet someone on the street then they smile they feel needed that someone is worried about them and André says a warm goodbye to both of them On the outskirts of town he really wants to show us that and that was a school it's the local grammar school young people whose future is open schools on which Russian missiles fall the contrast can't get any bigger so André knows that too and that's why he's here with us for them everything is a strategic object everything that's beautiful schools hospitals Supermarkets Asphalt on the street in the village all this has become strategic for them Russian soldiers Russian mothers they are all people who do nothing for themselves they see that the neighbor has done everything well and then want it to be bad there too what do I want from Andre Knowing what he says about Amnesty International's accusation that Ukrainians are using civilian objects like

schools for army purposes, thereby deliberately putting civilians at risk I want to say that Ukrainian soldiers are in their own country if we go somewhere we have the right they are allowed to us not dictate where we should be in the village, in the city, in the school or somewhere else that Firstly, secondly, we know the intentions of the Russians and that they are shooting at the schools, so we don't stay there out of principle and to at least get something so that we don't have to rebuild as much later on, he doesn't go into some of our questions like many Ukrainian soldiers in the region are how close they are to Hassan and whether he really sees a chance to recapture the city to displace the Russians from the south of Ukraine he leads us to a troop that operates two howitzers the devices still come from Soviet times are heavy weapons the most important trump card on the way 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 Russian positions, especially the supplies too He appeals to the West to deliver more weapons to Ukraine, of course more Langstre Backguns wouldn't hurt Weapons that reach much further so we can hit the Crimean bridge or something Confident to defeat the Russian attackers That's what we hear from many André shows us a place where Ukraine was able to push back the Russians in the first days

of the war here weeps Set see it an armored personnel carrier Putin once said we're going straight to heaven and they're going to hell they're in heaven without shoes they left their shoes here and they're in heaven the elite of the armed forces there you see nicholaev this was a brigade with paratroopers Others he tells us he himself was an officer in the Soviet armed forces he was trained in Moscow whether he sometimes thinks that his former colleagues might have fought for the Russians here I ask him colleagues how can we call them colleagues when they kill children when they are peaceful Killing people Colleagues don't get involved in something like that, I'm still in contact kt with russian citizens who i served with who was subordinate to me i can say that do not support putin's policy we are just afraid they sit in moscow or in other cities and are afraid there are many such people in russia he just killed all the opposition leaders putin is not a diplomat or president putin is just over the unimaginable unthinkable sounds so like so many of his compatriots, to this day André cannot understand that the former brother is waging full war against them we did not attack them they came to our country i would like emphasize 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 for an end to this inexorable war
