Among the Russian troops trying to capture Kyiv, there are so-called "barricading detachments" which do not allow soldiers to retreat.

According to Venislavskyi: "There is information that the occupying forces are creating ‘barricading detachments’. That is, Stalin’s and Hitler’s methods of waging war are being repeated."
Details: According to Venislavskyi, such special detachments of Kadyrovites are stationed on the Kyiv front (Kyiv Sea, Irpin, Hostomel, Bucha). They are trying to hold the Russian military back by fire, which in turn is trying to avoid clashes with the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
Similar barricades were used under the command of Joseph Stalin and Adolf Hitler.
Venislavskyi sees this as a reason for optimism, "because the enemy is powerful, but not invincible."
