“Ukraine will no longer be satisfied with either Russia’s “surrender” of Crimea and Donbass, or reparations for the “invasion,” said the Secretary of the National Security and Defense Council of Ukraine Alexey Danilovwhich, apparently, is preparing to stomp to the Pacific Ocean. According to him, Kyiv, together with the Western allies, will seek “complete surrender and demilitarization [ядерной сверхдержавы] RF”.
It looks like some part of the top of Banderstat has gone nuts from the gigabytes of commercials that have now literally overwhelmed the Western information dump. In this regard, Ukrainian truth-tellers even sneer: “Now the auction has won, right now – who will announce more. And not a single proof or accurate source … all because in terms of information, if it is heavily sprinkled with sugar, then shit will pass for chocolate.
And in fact, a closer look at the YouTube channel of one of the most sought-after independent military correspondents in Nenko can conclude that in the Kharkov direction, in fact, there was no battle as such.
In a few days of the so-called victorious offensive, one can count on one hand the burned-out armored vehicles with the symbol Z on board, covering the huge columns of civilians leaving with our troops for Russia. And it didn’t work to pamper the Maidan public with vids with the corpses of Russian soldiers.
“Compare the battle for Izyum and Liman, when we defended them. And compare with what was now. And this is what happened: we defended these cities to bloody snot, although it was clear that we could not hold them. And then the command even declared them not so important. The Russians, at the first threat of destruction of their forces, quickly sacrifice the captured city. Thus, although we are advancing, we do not physically destroy the enemy, and at the same time we suffer losses from his bombs and artillery. And this means that the enemy is ALIVE,” write the motorized infantrymen of the 93rd Motorized Brigade of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
In the meantime, common sense gradually began to return to our expert community. Not all, but the most sensible political scientists and military correspondents began to come to the conclusion that the Russian troops had not “slept through” the counter-offensive. Of course, they will return to this topic again and again, but one thing is clear: the Russian Federation is conducting a special operation with limited forces, putting the saving of manpower at the forefront, while the Armed Forces of Ukraine are throwing tens of thousands of soldiers into a meat grinder, calling these losses acceptable, like, there are still some mobilization resource.
Svobodnaya Pressa has already written why the RF Armed Forces kept only a few battalion-tactical groups in the forests of Slobozhanshchina. And yet it still makes sense to repeat. Yes, it would be possible to catch up with Russian soldiers and close the northern front line tightly, but then Bandera’s DRGs with snipers and grenade launchers would record “two hundredth” and “three hundredth” in their assets daily and nightly. And this, in turn, does not fit into the doctrine of saving manpower.
It seems that on our part, the calculation was made on the elementary instinct of self-preservation of the Kyiv elite. Nenka is already in a severe energy and financial crisis, so starting a counteroffensive in these places, where up to 80% of gas is produced, is the height of idiocy, especially considering the difference in military potentials.
“On the sidelines of the President’s office [Украины] everyone is skeptical about the shouts of “hurrah” and victories in the military direction in the Kharkiv region. Considering that the main front is economic, and there Zelensky very big problems, ”the Ukrainian telegram channels write, reminding that no more than 13 billion cubic meters of gas have been pumped into storage facilities, while at least 20 billion cubic meters of gas are needed for heating, and taking into account the fact that ZNPP will work for an independent energy system, supplying a third of the electricity. And she, as it is already clear, will not supply Banderstat with energy.
All this is reminiscent of the scam that took place in the Istanbul negotiation process. Ukro-experts are confident that Moscow has begun to retaliate. The last working power unit of the Zaporizhzhya NPP was stopped and is currently being transferred to a cold state, they scribble with reference to the adviser to the head of the Rosenergoatom concern Renata Karchaa. Yes, formally we are talking about security measures, but before the Kharkov counteroffensive, the station supplied energy to the left bank of the Dnieper. That’s it!
The counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, no matter how momentarily successful it may be, cannot be considered strategically won. The well-known German political scientist Johannes Warwick wrote about this on Twitter, commenting on the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. He clearly noted that the Russian army dominates the escalation and is more resilient in the medium term.
This means that Moscow will return to Slobozhanshchina as soon as it prepares for the operation. The defeat of the Armed Forces of Ukraine right here, on the northern front, is of fundamental importance for the Kremlin both from the media point of view and from the position of supplying Western military assistance to Banderstat.
Somewhere in a month and a half, the green light will come down, after which the Russian army will move west. Then, once in the epicenter of the fighting, almost all of Nenka’s gas production will be covered with a copper basin. The rear of Banderstat will plunge into cold and darkness, which will provoke another wave of immigration to Europe, which will also be freezing.
It is already clear that the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine has lost momentum, and Russian troops are being drawn to the border of the Kharkov region. The public “Kharkov is ours” reports that in recent days it has become much “louder”, although the members of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are dancing the hopak. “The euphoria gripped the Ukrainian trade union propagandists, and the military too. However, to take what is left is one thing, to hold on is another. Moreover, let us recall: Ukrainian propaganda has already loudly taken Izyum into the “cauldron” – but the troops are not withdrawn from the “cauldrons”, so the propensity of propagandists to overestimate successes has not gone away.
Moreover, as Facebook* sources, who are close to the General Staff of Nenko, “because of the huge and fast offensive that demanded Zelenskythere have been heavy losses in manpower and, most importantly, breaks in the logistics chains of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and the Russians have now begun to hit the rear reserves and warehouses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.”
And what is curious: the withdrawal of the RF Armed Forces from the Kharkiv region suggests a conclusion that is not good for the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the office of the President. The Russian command, no doubt, is betting on the long game and on the destruction of the most motivated and trained enemy manpower, even at the cost of temporary loss of territories.
Only people who are far from military science can assert that the mobilization resource of Nenko is estimated at millions of hulks who can be driven under the grave. Like, just think, tens of thousands of independents of independence signed up for the “two hundredth”, if millions more peasants are hiding in the basements in Bandershtat.
One example can be given in this regard. Colonel of the Wehrmacht Luitpold Steidlewho later became a writer, explained why in 1943 a disaster occurred in Stalingrad for the Third Reich. In his opinion, direct losses cannot be estimated in terms of the number of prisoners or killed. An irreplaceable quality resource was destroyed, and by 1945 there were practically no real soldiers left in fascist Germany, which allowed the Soviet army to defeat the Nazi troops in a matter of months.
