I excluded 15 (!) of 29 sent problems in view of these problems are non-thematic:
- No 6 (Ka8-Ka5), No 8 (Kh7-Kf5), No 19 (Kf3-Kc3), No 20 (Ke7-Ke4), No 22 (Kh7-Ke8), No 26 (Kf6 Kb7) – indirect battery doesn’t play neither in set play nor in try (direct battery plays in set play);
- No 7 (Kh4-Kd4), No 12 (Kg1-Ka8), No 13 (Kh1-Kh3), No 14 (Kd7-Kh7), No 27 (Kb2-Kd3) – indirect battery doesn’t play neither in set play nor in try;
- No 9 (Kb1-Kb3), No 16 (Ka1-Ka3) – a mate in set play is “direct” (non-battery) because front piece doesn’t participate in this mate;
- No 15 (Kc7-Ka8) – a mate in set play is “direct” (non-battery) because front piece doesn’t participate in this mate. Or direct battery plays in set play.

Nevertheless, in my opinion, there are some high-level twomovers among rest compositions.

French-Soviet theme based on destroying of two indirect batteries. In one phase – destroying of battery Q+Sd5, in another – destroying of battery Q+Pe5, in the solution – destroying of both batteries. In tries there is reciprocal change of destructible and active indirect batteries with change-mates. Rich content!

Zagoruiko and Rudenko themes. Defences on the same square. Dual-avoidances. Full elimination of indirect battery in “classic” decoration. All is harmonic!

Zagoruiko theme. Elimination of indirect battery combined with creation and play of new indirect batteries. Interesting and non-standard concept. Pity that a loading of White piece in the solution is weak.

1.dxe5? – 2.R6d4# (A), 1...Kxe5 2.Re3# (B) [2.Qe8#? (C)], 1...Sc6! (2.Qxc6#?) (elimination of masked battery by first way and play of thematic indirect battery Bc7+Rd6 in the threat)

1...exd4 (a) 2.Qe8# (C)

1...Sd7 2.Qc6#

(elimination of thematic indirect battery by second way, simultaneous play of masked battery that destroyed in tries with change-defence and new indirect battery Bb6+Pd4 that aimed on square e3)

Combination of eliminations of masked direct and thematic indirect batteries. It is meaningfully but without a harmony between phases.
