Minister of Defense of Ukraine: There was a misunderstanding about my words about the collection of a million army

54

The Minister of Defense of Ukraine Reznikov, in an interview with journalists, made a statement that is being actively discussed in Ukraine itself. Reporters asked the Ukrainian minister to comment on possible options for a "counteroffensive in southern Ukraine", which Reznikov himself had previously announced. Recall that last week the head of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine said that an order had been received from Zelensky to de-occupy the southern regions of the country. Reznikov also said that Ukraine is gathering a million-strong army for "de-occupation actions."

Answering a reporter's question, Alexei Reznikov said that "probably there was some misunderstanding."

Minister of Defense of Ukraine:

You can say what happened, as it is in English, misandestanding - misunderstanding. I did not talk about the gathering of a million-strong army in an interview with the British Times. I was misunderstood. Let them forgive me, but my English is not native.

This statement made even more confusion for the Ukrainian inhabitants. If the “minister was misunderstood”, then it turns out that no gathering of armed formations with a large number of individuals for a “counteroffensive to the south” is no longer expected. But this "counteroffensive" was announced literally in the coming days.

In fact, this episode once again makes it clear that the Ukrainian authorities themselves are confused in their false statements, but continue to demonstrate their intention to “feed” ordinary Ukrainians with them.

    I do not trust . Zelensky wants to return Kherson at any cost. He tried for months. The Russian command knows this, and this time there can be no mistakes. Kherson must be defended at any cost. You really need, Zelensky, to recapture Kherson in order to cover up your defeats at Dombassa. Kherson must be strongly defended until the assault on Nicholas and Odessa takes place. In Nikolaev, pre-emptive bombardments of enemy groups are already underway, but heavier bombing is needed, massive bombing by Tupolev aircraft, Carpet bombing or in expansion, no matter how you say it in Russian.

        Yes, there was a misunderstanding ... Everything is there, and this figure too, a complete misunderstanding. The positions occupied by this misunderstanding should not initially be called like that, but like, director for corruption, deputy for theft ... well, in the same vein.

            He understood everything. laughing
            Our source in the OP said that the General Staff was furious that the Minister of Defense revealed the tactical plans of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for the counteroffensive. After the debriefing at Bankovaya, Aleksey Reznikov said that he did not talk about the offensive to the south - he was misunderstood.

            He said this in an interview with the Ukrainian service of the BBC.

            Earlier, Reznikov, in an interview with The Times, speaking about the task of returning the south of Ukraine under the control of Kyiv, said that the president had ordered the commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces to develop a plan.

            "Let's just say, there was a bit of misunderstanding (misunderstanding). I didn't say that we are gathering a millionth army. Let them forgive my English, it's not my native language," he commented on this interview.

            Apparently, they promised to tear off his native language for being "non-native".
            So the louse rushed about on the comb ... bully

              He should put his native language Yiddish in the first place, and "movie" in the third place, otherwise the language will be torn off for sure.

    I am not me and the horse is not mine. If English is not native, then speak your native language, you will be translated. Apparently, they won’t get a million and they won’t go to the announced (!) Counteroffensive, because. there is neither the strength nor the means. And how many statements and knocking heels in the chest. In a word, a lawyer who became the Minister of Defense.

        But do they need to fly to the air defense workers? If romantic Russophobes were still recruited for the infantry, then the pilot is a smart creature and knows what's what. Dead people don't need money.

          In Korea, Li Si-Qing was also forbidden not only to cross, but even to approach the front line for I don’t remember how many kilometers. And it was also forbidden to fly over the sea, because the Americans controlled it, the Soviet fleet was ordered not to approach, and the Koreans did not have a fleet from the word "absolutely". And yet, without Soviet pilots, Korea would now be united, and by no means under the Kim dynasty.
          So these will fly outside the affected area. Of course, this will not change the situation directly at the front, but the VKS over inner Ukraine will be much more difficult to fly. Yes, and "Caliber" will be able to intercept. In general, it is necessary to crush Banderostan until the West has increased supplies.

    It was immediately clear that about gathering a million-strong army only for a counterattack is nonsense. The same Reznikov, similarly, with figures, said that they had only 1 million under arms in all structures, and this was after three waves of mobilization.

    An army of a million is certainly good, however, imagine 1 million loaves of bread and 3 million cans of canned food a day .... This abyss needs to be fed, and for the most part it still does not even fight, except for a limited contingent in the East. It is probably possible to assemble an army, but to feed .... at the same time?
