The head of the garrison of the Armed Forces of Ukraine predicted a new offensive of the Russian army on Kharkov

The Russian armed forces will again launch an offensive against Kharkov in the near future. This was stated by the head of the Kharkiv garrison of the Armed Forces of Ukraine (Armed Forces of Ukraine), Brigadier General of Justice Serhiy Melnyk, in an interview with NOS from the Netherlands.


The Ukrainian commander believes that the Russian army will launch an offensive as soon as the ground freezes. Now the offensive activity of the RF Armed Forces is allegedly hindered only by relatively warm weather, which is why the ground does not freeze through, and heavy armored vehicles will get stuck in the mud of the Ukrainian impassability.

Melnik also gave a forecast on the number of Russian troops preparing for the offensive. They, according to the head of the Kharkov garrison, can be much more than 200 thousand people. However, the Ukrainian military reassures himself and Western readers by reasoning that Russian soldiers will allegedly be poorly armed and poorly trained.

The head of the Kharkiv garrison quoted General Valery Zaluzhny, Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, as saying that “we will have to kill them all,” referring to Russian soldiers.

By the way, the head of the Kharkiv garrison, Melnyk, does not accidentally bear the rank of brigadier general of justice: until recently, he heads the Military Law Institute of the National Law University named after Yaroslav the Wise. In September 2022, he was appointed deputy commander of the operational group of troops in the Kharkov direction and head of the city's garrison.

      There is no need to reassure yourself. In the course of the SVO, it became obvious that NATO intelligence + agents in the government and in the General Staff that supply information work perfectly. I would not count on surprise at all. I would count on the fact that the enemy would know everything including all routes. hi

      and why should we storm the city if only 3-4 roads feed Kharkov from the west? From Belgorod to Bogodukho-Valki-Novaya Vodolaga and Kharkov are left without supplies ... well, how many artillery shells will remain there? For a week? And even then I think it’s superfluous .... to smash all the transport arteries with a jerk along the Polish border, mine tightly and blow up all the bridges and fill up the tunnels - and the whole of Ukraine will have to fight for 3-4 weeks of ammunition and fuel (subject to the mining of the Odessa raid, but this the simplest) ... and the fronts will crumble even earlier - there the shortage of shells and equipment will manifest itself within a few days, especially with our simultaneous offensive and along the front, the increased waste of ammunition and fuel and lubricants will immediately reset the reserves of the fronts of the Armed Forces of Ukraine .. with such a jerk, the Westerners will urgently start evacuate your personnel and management will also fall in ... Yes, a jerk in the dates of the loss of at least 500 -1000 airborne and MTR fighters, but at the front it will save the same 500-1000 Airborne Forces and MTRs, which it is criminal to burn in the trenches of the front, but the rest This will save the army and civilians tens of thousands and completely reset "Ukraine".

            Eka downvoted me. I look with a bang at posts about the offensive, the audience is going to be suitable and not able to conduct elementary analysis. The patient over there is already cutting the western border. It’s only interesting where he gathered so much strength to put pressure on the existing front, to take the Kharkov region, which is not yet criminal for us, and even put up a barrier along the western borders. Even Zhukov never dreamed of such maneuvers. If we carry out partial mobilization once again, saturate the troops with modern weapons, drones of all kinds, it may work out. But this is of little concern here, the main thing is a loud headline

            And his reasoning about the Airborne Forces and the MTR and the loss of 500-1000 people during such a maneuver reminds me of Pasha Mercedes' reasoning about one airborne regiment in Grozny, which will restore order in two hours, from the same series. Or Kyiv in 3 days, although it is strange that for the 11th month of the war, people still did not understand anything

    They are all there, sitting in all directions and trembling, no matter how the Russian offensive happens. And at first they didn’t expect from Belarus, but now they don’t exclude it. And they are waiting in Donbass. And Kharkov sat down again on treason. This means that the blow may be ... in another place, let's say, but for now we will not be ahead of events ... We just hope for the direction for which everything has been preparing for a long time and where the offensive can be most successful due to the geographical reasons themselves. No, I'm not going to say it yet...

      All our and enemy media are talking about some kind of strike by the Russian Armed Forces, looking for directions. At first they said that it would happen after mobilization, then after the training of the mobilized, then they expected the mud to freeze, now this blow is being postponed until spring. Have you ever thought about the fact that ... there will be no blow? It won't be here. We do not have the strength in any direction, and this is becoming more and more obvious every day.

      If you cut off Kharkov, will you have to cut it off from all sides, and then beat it up for several months in urban battles, and then restore it? They are unlikely to go for it. Past Kharkov from the east side to Izyum? Maybe. To Odessa - Nikolaev - perhaps. And Kyiv is futile.

        Is it futile to cut off the capital together with the president and the leadership of the SBU and the Armed Forces of Ukraine? So instead of cutting off the head of the hydra, you prefer to cut the tentacles? Well, well... That's wise.

            Even if so, it will be the strongest political defeat of Ukraine, since the capital is still Kyiv, not Lviv. In addition, it is the largest industrial center and there are a lot of enemy troops there. The capture of Kyiv and the destruction of a large enemy grouping is much better than spreading reserves along the entire front line and marking time. For Napoleon, Moscow is a very remote territory, but for us it is a border area, so the troops will have no problems with supplying everything necessary.

    We have a whole group of 250-300 thousand people, and they want 200 to Kharkov. The navel will then untie. In general, if you attack, then first on the Sumy region. There, Kharkov is covered from the north and closer to Kyiv.

    There will be no offensives, forget that in order to attack you must have advantages in forces that do not exist. There will be a slow grinding of the enemy. Using the example of Makeevka, it should be clear to everyone that any concentration of forces for an offensive will have large losses, after tykrv for 63 dead, any commander will dissuade from offensives.

      This is where I come to the same conclusion. That there will be no attack. By and large, we have neither soldiers nor equipment in the right quantity for this. There is no aviation, no communications and intelligence, and more recently, it turns out, also air defense. Therefore, only a deaf defense and pleas that the Armed Forces of Ukraine will not go on a massive offensive, as near Izyum and Kherson, will save our army from worldwide shame, led by the brilliant Gerasimov and Shoigu.

    It looks like another campaign to stir up passions about extorting new military supplies and financial loans. If the RF Armed Forces begin to prepare for a new offensive operation, the Americans will know about it immediately: they have plenty of satellite surveillance equipment for this, and in such a leaky system as the military and government bodies of the Russian Federation, nothing can be hidden.

    After all the events with the regroupings and the months-long assault on Artemovsk and Soledar with such frenzied zeal and, one might say, a near-zero result, one can no longer believe just in such throws and campaigns of our army. And in no case do I reproach ordinary soldiers and officers, they are all heroes, they plow and do their job, praise them for honor, bow to the ground to everyone. The problem is precisely in the organization of actions, in tactics and in the very military thought and science that is now being confessed at the top.

    There are no encirclements and boilers for the enemy, even attempts to organize them. Just frontal attacks with a bang. There are no attempts to encircle settlements and force the enemy to withdraw. The last such operations were in the LPR at the end of the liberation. Apparently, the last resources for such large-scale operations were exhausted in Mariupol and the LPR.

      The fact that the irretrievable losses of ZSU have long exceeded 100K is a near-zero result?

        Well, they lost 100k soldiers, then what? Is it some kind of purpose? Or a new military science? Diligently consider the losses of the enemy? You just look at the map of the liberated territories in March 2022 and what we have now. Here is the answer to all your questions. And the Armed Forces of Ukraine, even with such losses, lost only 10% of the total number. Not critical losses given that they still have someone to mobilize. And you also forget that motivated fighters, it seems that about 50 thousand soldiers are being trained in different NATO countries and they are not yet in Ukraine and do not take part in the battles. And this will be a good recharge for the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
        Everyone fancies himself a strategist, seeing the fight from the couch. Nothing more to add

        And why not remember yourself as a strategist? Isn't education given to a person so that he thinks first of all critically and asks uncomfortable questions? That we do not have examples from the history of our own country? How successful and not successful?

    Still, it’s interesting: with this SVO and goals that are not known to anyone except the Darkest One, did you decide to keep it carefully until March 2024? And then uncover the ammunition from the special warhead - and how to hit it!
    Because if by that date the same parsley from the category "two villages have been recaptured in the past month" (not to mention the ongoing trade with Russia's enemies) continues, the ratings of the Darkest One may sag.

    You can start anything. Successful implementation is another matter.
    In fact, the Russian army has two offensive options:
    1. Through existing fortified areas. They will put the boys down, take a couple of oporniks, destroy the Kraken forty more times.
    On the cola bast, start over.
    2. Bypassing the existing Ukrainian regions.
    Long-range supply problems will arise in the absence of aviation support.
    The effect is unpredictable. It may turn out the same as near Kyiv a year ago.

    Therefore, you need to dream less about the offensive, and think more about how to knock down enemy air defense and long-range systems.

    Offensives are cancelled! Begins...

    Putin instructed Shoigu to introduce a ceasefire from 12.00:6 on January 24.00 to 7:XNUMX on January XNUMX along the entire line of contact between the parties in Ukraine.

    The Minsk "truces" were apparently not enough ....
    None of the "truces" during the years of Minsk-2 was carried out, and it is obvious that this will not be carried out either.
