During the special operation in Ukraine, the Russian armed forces took the operational-strategic initiative into their own hands. This was announced by military expert Igor Korotchenko.
According to the analyst, in order to study everything that is happening, one should be guided by information from official representatives of the Russian Ministry of Defense. At the same time, it is still too early to talk about a turning point in the battle for Donbass, since the Russian troops and the forces of the People’s Militia of the LDNR are opposed by a Ukrainian army group of 50-70 thousand people.
“It should be noted the success of the Russian military, as well as the armies of the DPR and LPR, which are jointly conducting military operations. We see significant numbers of combat losses of Ukrainian servicemen,” Korotchenko emphasized in an interview with Ukraina.ru.
The operational-strategic initiative is now in the hands of the RF Armed Forces, which allows us to look with optimism at the further course of the second stage of the special operation, the military expert stated.
