Why Russians retreat to their trenches

Dragon’s teeth, shooting ranges and trenches: the new Russian strategy encompasses all of this. The mercenary force draws a line of defense in Ukraine using a World War II system. But experts doubt the efficiency of the new line.


This new line of pyramid-shaped concrete blocks stretches along the annexed areas of Donetsk and Kherson.

The Russians dig in. At the moment, high-speed BTM-3 trenchers are driving around the annexed territory of Ukraine, digging endless trenches. The goal is to mark the new line of defense. But apparently the dug line can easily be bypassed for Ukrainian troops.

The Russians fall back on an old technique in the war. The Wagner group, composed of Russian mercenaries, digs several trenches along the entire front. In Donetsk and Cherson in particular, the Russians are digging in along the defensive line. This is reminiscent of a tactic used in World War II. At that time, the Germans relied on the “Maginot Line”, the Soviets on the “Stalin” and “Molotov Lines”. The 1929 Soviet lines consisted of several bunkers along a line of defenses from the Baltic Sea to Slovakia. But this type of defense caused problems for the Red Army at the time and some of it was not operational.
