"Good news. Help, and impressive one at that, is already on the way. There is hope. There are plenty of mistakes made by the generals, but most of them due to banal planning "on paper", without taking the realities into account. On paper our BTR-70s (APCs) drive well, on paper our battalions are fully staffed, on paper we have no drunks or cowards. But in life ... In life, last night the battalion commander had to sit next to the driver multi-purpose armored tracked tower - it was the only way to force the driver to follow the order. And we are sorely lacking decisive commanders. And even more - brave driver-mechanics," Biriukov stated.
