Last week’s patrol uncovered a Russian army logistical network supporting clandestine enemy movements into the eastern AO. The unexpectedly heavy enemy contacts near the village of Dubionki were the tip of the iceberg of Russian forces moving to flank NATO positions.
After celebrating the halt of Russian forces several weeks ago, NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg has taken a personal interest in the latest developments. He sounded the alarm that Beketov is once again threatened, calling on member states to provide additional forces to the operation. He also requested the United Nations investigate alleged war crimes against civilians by Russian forces near Dubionki. Lithuanian national police claim that virtually all of the Lithuanian residents of the village were murdered.
Standing ready to engage the hostile force, Alpha Company has been ordered to cut the Russian transportation corridor and neutralize enemy forces building up south of Dubionki.
Alpha Company is ordered to move east from FOB Murphy to engage and destroy Russian logistics operations at Arshavino, Verhnee Vorontsovo, and Studenets. The village of Oblepikhino may also be occupied by Russian forces given its vicinity to other enemy positions. Objectives are as follows:
A) OBJ Nap Trap - Russian fuel, resupply, and barracks facilities at Arshavino
B) OBJ Cash Box - Enemy toll controlling movement in and out of the southern AO
C) OBJ Big Mama - Company-level HQ; reported hub of enemy logistics operation
