Military Review

Former Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine assessed the possibility of inflicting a "preemptive strike" on Russia

81

In Ukraine, they started talking about the possibility of delivering a "preemptive strike" against Russia, but came to the conclusion that the Ukrainian army did not have the strength to wage a "preventive war". The former head of the General Staff, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Viktor Muzhenko, spoke about this.


The former commander-in-chief assessed the possibility of delivering a "preemptive strike" against Russia and lamented that Ukraine simply does not have the strength and means to do this. According to him, Moscow understands that Kiev cannot deliver a "preemptive strike", the Ukrainian Armed Forces lacks the necessary missile systems, as well as other weapons capable of delivering strikes at a great distance. In addition, the ex-head of the General Staff is not at all sure that the Kiev authorities will decide on a retaliatory strike in the event of a military conflict with Russia.

Muzhenko stressed that the Ukrainian army is one of the largest in Europe, but technologically backward, and the Ukrainian industry is not able to meet all the needs of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Note that after resigning Muzhenko "registered" in various Ukrainian shows as a military expert holding an anti-Russian position. Literally six months ago, he argued that Ukraine is quite capable of defeating Russia in the war, but this requires an ally who will fight against the Russian army along with the Ukrainian one. At the same time, the ex-commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is sure that one way or another, but Russia will attack Ukraine. The reason for this is the water blockade of Crimea.

By the way, in 2018 Muzhenko, who still held the post of Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, "predicted" Russia's attack "in three years", i.e. in 2021. Then he said that by that time the Ukrainian army would be the strongest and most effective on the continent, technically secure and fully armed, ready to repel the "invasion" of Russia.

        Yes, no one has ever doubted that the APU is NOT ABLE to fight the Russian army. And such a task was never set to her. The State Department / West are constantly racking their brains over how the Armed Forces of Ukraine could attack the LPNR in such a way in order to make a blitzkrieg, quickly capture the LPNR - and then immediately the whole West scream loudly and stop any attempt by Russia to respond. And all they have is not dancing, in any way they can not dare to give the command "velikoukram" to attack. laughing

            Ah-ah-ah ... I understand ... this is such a new hybrid plan from General of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Muzhelozhenko - they are waiting for us to weaken, devour all the hedgehogs, and go to surrender to them, surrender, and then they will attack us. Brilliant. lol
            Napoleon and Adolfik also thought about weakening ...

            At the time of the collapse of the USSR, muzhenko was a battalion commander.
            Well, and then a new post almost every year. In 2000, for a year, there were two posts at once of the NSh and the deputy commander of the division, Longer deputy brigade commander of beggars, as the Americans christened the Ukrainian contingent in Iraq.

            He has been in retirement for 60 years, but is eager to fight for banknotes as a young man.
            But be that as it may, he quite soberly assessed the possibility of a preemptive strike and the entire war as a whole - for this Ukraine has neither the strength nor the means.

    -In Ukraine, they started talking about the possibility of inflicting a "preemptive strike" on Russia,
    After such a declaration, NATO membership will have to be forgotten. For a long time ...

    Perhaps, the way home should be forgotten. For it may happen that they will not have time ...

    Perhaps (in my opinion) Russia needs to officially notify the world that it will act on the principle of the United States and Israel - to destroy terrorists and especially their leaders wherever they are without judicial delays and extraditions - just to send a missile to where they are found. Then, through the courts, recognize various "Pastors", Yaroshes and other non-humans as terrorists and destroy them in a democratic American (Israeli) way. I think after a couple of such liquidations on the other side of the border there will be fewer shrill jackals.

    Everything is like Hitler's. It is necessary in Kiev to prepare a wall on the main building so that inscriptions can be left. At the same time, in order not to pull rubber, it is necessary to prepare scaffolds and gallows in the courtyard of the ministry. From Russia, they should take the trouble to order a good gallowsman ahead of time, so that he would hang them up for a good review, and after all, appoint a court. There is no need to waste time, it is still cold and people at home will have something to watch on TV. It is to be expected that the most interesting moments will be shown to everyone. You need to start from the very bottom to the very top, so that everyone will remember.

    Ukraine is quite capable of defeating Russia in the war, but this requires an ally who will fight against the Russian army along with the Ukrainian one.
    This is most likely not the correct translation. According to the meaning of his statement, the word should be INSTEAD, not TOGETHER.

    he is a clown or not a clown, but, as we can see, the loading into the heads of the Ukrainian inhabitants about "the need for a preventive strike on Russia" has begun. Like "to defend ourselves, we must attack ourselves." And that's not good ...

    A bunch of fools who are not like Ukrainians are trying to frame the Ukrainian people or the Russian people. Using any defamatory nonsense just to hide the genocide of the Russian-speaking population, thereby blackmailing Russia.
    Yes - and without Gordon it is not safe!

    And who will supply the diesel fuel in the event of an attack on Russia? The main vaults will be destroyed by the first blow. And it’s not for nothing that the sun on the 3 border was brought up. There are few ideological ones, mostly convicts and freeloaders, and these can only fight the weak. In case of serious losses, they will run away so that the detachments will not stop. Of course, they will go home and tell about how they suffered from the Zelensky regime.
