Western press: Command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine predicted a new major offensive of the RF Armed Forces in the next 10 days

In the next 10 days, a new major offensive by the Russian armed forces on Ukrainian positions may begin. This is reported by Foreign Policy, citing information from an anonymous source in the military department of the Kyiv regime.

The command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine predicts the offensive of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation in the coming days, including because of the approaching first anniversary of the start of a special military operation. According to the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine, the Russian side allegedly concentrated a 300-strong army for a new offensive. The partial military mobilization carried out in the autumn helped to achieve such a number of the grouping of the RF Armed Forces intended for the offensive.



Now, according to the publication, Russian troops will advance in the Donbass. Foreign Policy notes that the mobilization led to some positive results for the Russian Armed Forces, as it allowed to stop the Ukrainian counteroffensive.

The Rand Corporation, whose analyst Dara Massikot quotes the publication, believes that now there are no longer those factors that once helped the Armed Forces of Ukraine advance in the Kharkiv region. For example, the RF Armed Forces have created strong and well-fortified defensive lines. The publication also names the forces that Russia can use in a new offensive: supposedly it is 1800 tanks, 3950 armored vehicles, 2700 artillery pieces, 810 Grad and Smerch multiple launch rocket systems, 300 helicopters and 400 fighters.

Interestingly, the US Department of Defense characterizes Russian troops as "poorly trained" and "poorly equipped." But, for some reason, to protect against such "bad" soldiers, more and more Western weapons, and Ukraine is threatened by a new major offensive from them.

And it’s not clear why the Russian troops have been “poorly trained” for a whole year? If we are talking about the recently mobilized, then they will have to resist the mobilized soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, who are unlikely to have undergone any training at all, given that in Ukraine even people who have never served in the army are forcibly mobilized.

A clear contradiction in the assessment of the situation is familiar to representatives of the Kyiv regime, who deceive the West for the sake of money and weapons, but it definitely does not paint American military analysts. As a result, Western societies receive a distorted picture of events in Ukraine.

    Well, according to tradition, there will be a massive missile strike before the offensive, only this time Ukraine is unlikely to recover from it. But when all this starts, one General Staff of the Russian Federation knows, I think, in any case, before the introduction of fresh reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

      before the offensive there will be a massive missile strike,

      Are you dreaming? 9 Iskanders would be enough for 9 substations of 750 sq. And that's it. But untouchable targets, agreements, gas supplies, and so on and so forth.
      Now decisions are made by people in yellow and crimson pants. So "twice KU"

    I wonder how the Armed Forces of Ukraine are planning to stop the Russian tank fist near Zaporozhye. In theory, during this time, all the foreground there should be mined, and positions for anti-tank systems should be attached and disguised. But it’s certainly easy for me to be a strategist from the couch.

    According to the rules of military science, at least a threefold superiority in manpower is needed, at least in the breakthrough area. Covertly creating a strike force will not work, taking into account enemy satellite reconnaissance. Dominance in the air is not observed and technical superiority too. I would like to be an optimist, but so far I personally do not see the prerequisites for a large-scale offensive.

      Last year, I read Zaluzhny's interview with a British publication. So he said in all seriousness that the Russians were preparing a millionth army in Siberia. In general, this is all rhetoric for Western sponsors to knock out arms supplies.

      Agree. There are no preconditions for an offensive. What would be kept would be a success. Particularly absurd seems the proclamation of the annexation of the Kherson region to Russia, and immediately after that, the withdrawal from Kherson under the pretext - it is difficult to defend, but nothing is easy in a real war. this fact just confirms the arguments of the Americans that our army is poorly armed and poorly trained. There is nothing for Putin to flap his wings, we, they say, will break it now. Because there is nothing, otherwise it would have been a long time ago.

      No need to reinvent the wheel. It has long been invented. Brusilov in 1916 found a way out of the positional impasse - the Brusilov breakthrough. Now in Donbass there is a similar positional impasse. To find a way out of it, it is enough to read the works on the Brusilov breakthrough. And woo a la.

        familiar with this tactic. Only then is it necessary to have a sufficient number of troops along this front and a rear reserve for the sector where a breakthrough will be made. Logistics should also be on top. The Brusilovsky breakthrough developed successfully at the beginning, but then fizzled out, primarily due to problems in logistics.

      Would you mind pampering this very rule of military science with a link? Otherwise, everyone likes to talk about the ratio of three to one, but no one bothers to inquire how this corresponds to reality ...

    Oh! If only it were true!
    But most likely, the Kremlin waiters day and night mri about peace negotiations with dear Nazi partners without preconditions.
    If the state of Ukraine remains on the primordially Russian lands, and even more so if it retains access to the Black Sea, there will be no peace.
    The maximum can be a temporary truce until the next new, even more difficult war for Russia.

    As they say, the unknown is more frightening and gives rise to rumors, and fear, as you know, has big eyes ..
    When General Surovikin became commander, the planned and demonstrative "de-electricity" began (it seems that tactics became clearer), the commander changed, it seemed to become quieter (they simply put pressure on the destruction of manpower), but this "silence" somehow makes the enemy more uncomfortable and scary ... ... so they "predict" .....

    These conversations make it possible to push through the supply of weapons to Ukraine.
    Well, probably there is some kind of soil under their chatter about our offensive.
    Remember how they shared these "secrets" a year ago.

    D'après ces "publications occidentales" il y aurait un groupement de 300000 hommes , c'est à dire si l'on en croit les chiffres, le même nombre que les mobilisés... bloqués et à certains endroits reculent déjà devant seulement les 150 à 180000 troupes Russes d'origine.
    Alors si tout cela est vrai ils ont vraiment de quoi s'inquiéter le jour ou les 300000 de plus commenceront à avancer...

    According to these "Western publications", the group has 300 people, that is, according to the figures, the same number as the mobilized...Thus, we can conclude that at present the Ukrainians are blocked and in some places are already retreating, yielding only to the initial Russian troops of 000 to 150 men.
    So if all of this is true, they really have something to worry about the day another 300 start moving forward...

    I think no major offensive of the RF Armed Forces is planned, there will be a gradual pushing through of the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in different places to create the appearance of an offensive and, accordingly, dispersion and constant movement of reserves and, accordingly, attacks on them. The reserves will be saved in order to carry out a planned rotation, and most importantly, to be able to block the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. There is more and more information that they are preparing shock brigades (trained l / s in the west, weapons will be tightened) They need to report to their owners about their successes. By spring or early summer, I think they will be ready.

    For a large-scale offensive at the moment there are not enough forces and means. Although ... Shoigu and Gerasimov can be thrown for slaughter l / s in the next frontal attacks.

    And then the owners themselves do not see what, without their reports, but how?
    The masters are there at all levels, from instructors and mercenaries at the bottom, to quiet and inconspicuous "consultants" and military and economic "advisers" at the top.
    All these "reports", "demonstrative successes" are important only for the electorate, which takes foam in the media for real events.
