Baranets explained what the main miscalculation was made by the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Kherson

Baranets explained what the main miscalculation was made by the Armed Forces of Ukraine near Kherson

Until recently, the Ukrainian political and military leadership spoke about the imminent general battle near Kherson, during which the Armed Forces of Ukraine were supposed to “crush and drown in the Dnieper” the Russian group located on the right bank. However, in building these grandiose plans, Kyiv made a miscalculation, and as a result, Russian forces continue the offensive.

About this in a conversation with the publication “Ukraine.ru” of the story, a retired colonel, a military observer for “Komsomolskaya Pravda” Viktor Baranetsaccording to which one new factor, not taken into account by the Ukrainian military, has a serious impact on the progress of the Russian special operation.

The main battle in the Donbass, the interlocutor of the publication noted, will take place on the bridgehead of Slavyansk-Kramatorsk, where, according to various sources, from 70 to 100 thousand Ukrainian troops are now concentrated. And when these two most important cities are taken by Russian troops, the turning point of the entire special operation will come, Baranets believes.

“Just a month and a half ago, the military and political leadership of Ukraine was talking about a general battle, which they intend to give the Russians near Kherson. (President of Ukraine Volodymyr) Zelensky set the task of crushing and drowning in the Dnieper the Russian grouping, which is located on the right bank, not allowing it to retreat,” Viktor Baranets recalled.

It was for this reason that the Ukrainian command deployed additional units to this area, and the artillery of the Armed Forces of Ukraine purposefully hit the Antonovsky bridge in Kherson and the Kakhovka dam.

The calculation, apparently, was that the Armed Forces of Ukraine would be able to deliver a powerful blow that would make the Russians falter and rush to run. And since the bridges were supposed to be destroyed by that time, the demoralized Russians who fell into the trap would be able to be “crumbled,” explained Baranets.

“But we quickly got out of this situation. In record time, they set up a pontoon crossing and broke the enemy’s calculations for this imaginary victory, ”added the KP columnist.

Recall that last week, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, in one of his nightly video messages to the people, admitted that the situation in the east of the country turned into “hell” for the country’s armed forces, as they suffer catastrophic losses.
