ISW: If the allies do not support Ukraine in conducting a large-scale winter operation, the ability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to maneuver battles will be limited

The American Institute for the Study of War (ISW) has published another "portion" of analytics regarding the situation in the Ukrainian theater of operations.

Experts from the United States emphasize that the Russian Armed Forces continue to exert a serious onslaught on the Artemovsky and Avdeevsky directions in the DPR. As a matter of fact, the fact that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are in a difficult situation in the above-mentioned areas is not denied in Ukraine either.



Even the “never discouraged” adviser to Zelensky’s office, Aleksey Arestovich, is no longer so confident in his forecast that the RF Armed Forces will not be able to take a single large city under the control of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

In addition, the ISW believes that the West should provide support to Kyiv in conducting a large-scale winter operation, otherwise the Armed Forces of Ukraine will lose the initiative and will no longer be able to conduct maneuverable combat operations.

Tellingly, the opinion of experts from the Institute for the Study of War contradicts statements by US politicians and the military that a lull in hostilities in Ukraine should come in the winter. At least, the large-scale operation of the Ukrainian army in the West is not even mentioned.

Finally, the American experts did not bypass the losses among the Georgian mercenaries near Artemovsk. The ISW announced the injury of one and the death of six Georgian, as they are called there, “volunteers”. The day before, it was reported that several units of the so-called "foreign legion" of the Armed Forces of Ukraine were surrounded near Artemovsk and lost at least a company of personnel, including when trying to break out of the ring.

    How will they support it? Will they sit in the trenches for everything, while the vushniks will warm up in their operas?)))

      They will support it this way: the APU will go forward, and Polish gentlemen with machine guns will "cover" them from behind. In case the ukrovermacht decides to suddenly retreat, then 7.62 in the head will immediately motivate you to increase the combat onslaught.

        There is more likely a hint at the supply of not only meat, but put more weapons and equipment, which would then be replaced with American ones.

      Vacationers, that is, military regular units of the armies of Poland, Romania, Germany, perhaps even the United States and Great Britain under a false flag - the flag of Ukraine. The jokes are over. Played out in the noble and negotiable. We are not destroying the Ukrainian railway, on the contrary, we are arranging grain deals so that, on the contrary, weapons and equipment flow like water through Odessa. They would show determination, strength, readiness to take radical measures from the very beginning and there would be no such thing as it is now, no one would even think of climbing. But the attitude towards us has changed, since everyone sees that neither fish nor meat. And since we are afraid of upsetting our Western partners, then no one will be afraid of us and they will think that Russia can be squeezed because it is weak, otherwise it would not be so negotiable. Negotiability and restraint are perceived as weakness, but they don’t negotiate with the weak, they beat the weak. We showed neither strength nor determination so that someone would have a desire to sit down with us at the negotiating table, realizing that there was no other way. On the contrary, they showed that it is not necessary to sit down at the negotiating table with us, we can be put under pressure anyway.

      Of course, they will support them, but the question is, how long is this support? In light of all this support, one important moment is brewing - a powerful blow to the railway infrastructure and bridges, so that this support remains away from the line of contact.

    For attacks on the defended areas of the Russian Federation, Hymars alone will not be enough, 404 has no advantages in artillery, no tanks ....... no aviation.
    If there is no kind of "Agreement" with the abandonment of the territory ... then - I don’t know.

    The West should support Kyiv in conducting a large-scale winter operation
    So the West is already providing almost unlimited assistance with weapons, finances, intelligence and the information component in the media. What other support is needed when the American and European military-industrial complex is working in the interests of Ukraine. It remains only to support their infantry and aircraft.

    They have been supporting the Ukronazis for eight months now.
    Not in the horse's food.
    The only way they can change the situation is to openly introduce NATO troops.
    What they won't do.
    We ourselves have created in them the illusion that they can defeat us.
    So our decisive victories are needed to deprive them of these illusions.
    We are waiting and hope.

      And what can be considered a decisive victory?
      For example, the encirclement of the entire left-bank grouping of ukrovoyak is a victory, and if it is destroyed to zero, then it is decisive.
      Only we don’t have so many soldiers, only acting at the level of the BTG is not possible, in a word, either the demolition of the enemy army is completely moral or the demolition of society, and this is to endure everything in the Stone Age.
      Moreover, in principle, the western regions can already begin if we do not take it.

          Thank you for agreeing))), otherwise I was afraid that they would argue. In principle, everything that is not planned to be taken should turn into ruins to create problems for the Poles, Hungarians and Romanians with big problems with restoration.

            I have always said that we do not need Galicia. In any state, this Nazi-Bandera cancer that poisons everything around. Ukraine was brought to its current state by the Westerners, with their ideology, which subjugated the whole of Ukraine with the help of the West.
            The fact that Galicia should in no case be annexed to Russia was warned by Nicholas II by his Minister of Internal Affairs Durnovo in his analytical note.
            So I also think that Russia does not need this crap for nothing. They only cause problems.
