What kind of war is this? Soldiers built a 30 kilometer long train wall in the Russia-Ukraine war – News India Live

Have taken support. The Russian Army has changed its strategy in the Donetsk region of Ukraine and adopted a new defensive method. Russia has prepared a long train chain, which will be like a 30 km long defensive wall. The 'Tsar Train' stretches about 30 kilometers between the Russian-controlled cities of Olenivka and Volnovakha. It acts as a major obstacle to his forces near the front lines of the war in eastern Ukraine.

According to Ukrainian open-source intelligence tracker Depstat, the series involves about 2100 cargo trains. That is, by connecting these trains, the Russian Army has erected a wall in front of the Ukrainian Army. The effectiveness of this engineering framework remains uncertain. But its initial intention is clear that it is designed to deter the Ukrainian Defense Forces.

The wall of the train is visible in satellite photos

The US-based think tank Institute for the Study of War (ISW) believes the train could serve as a defensive line against future Ukrainian attacks. According to the ISW report, satellite imagery from May 2023 and February 2024 shows an extended line of trains connecting Olenivka and Volnovakha.

Work on such security started from July 2023

Russia began assembling it in July 2023, signaling a strategic move to strengthen its security in a region of intense conflict. This can be considered a separate line of defense as it is extremely difficult to damage, move or blow up a 30 kilometer long mass of metal. It is impossible to prepare a corridor for the movement of equipment without breaking it.

Heavy fighting is being seen in this area

The strategic situation behind the construction of this railway line by Russia is due to the ongoing conflict in the region. The Donetsk area, less than four miles from the line, has seen heavy fighting. These included Olenivka and Volnovakha, located east of important front lines. The construction of the Tsar Train in a relatively inactive sector of the front is a preemptive step to strengthen Russian defenses. This strategic deployment of the 'Tsar Train' by the Russian military in eastern Ukraine also marks a turning point in the war.
