The writer Zakhar Prilepin spoke about the consequences of the counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkiv region. He said that these successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will push the West to increase the supply of weapons to Ukraine, writes Svobodnaya Pressa.
“Whatever the outcome of the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkiv direction (even if they “plannedly” withdraw), an increase in the supply of weapons and new financial tranches to Ukraine are now guaranteed,” Prilepin said.
Russia will be able to influence the adoption of these decisions not in favor of Ukraine if it conducts an ultra-fast offensive operation and breaks the Ukrainian grouping in the Kharkov region, surrounding it.
For several days now, there have been reports that the Armed Forces of Ukraine managed to achieve success in the Kharkiv region and take Balakleya into the operational encirclement. Also under the fire control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is now the road that goes from Balakleya to Kupyansk, where there is an important railway junction used by the Russian troops to supply weapons to the Izyum group.
