Syrsky, Commander of the Armed Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, will present to Zelensky a new counteroffensive plan in the Bakhmut direction
The counteroffensive of the Ukrainian army in the Bakhmut direction will continue, the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is developing a new plan that will allow breaking through the defenses of the Russian forces on the flanks and returning the city under the control of Kyiv. The decision to resume the operation will be made by Zelensky's office.
The commander of the Ground Forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Alexander Syrsky, who failed the operation to "liberate" Bakhmut, is eager for revenge. According to Ukrainian sources, the general is developing a new counteroffensive plan that will not only break through the defenses of the Russian army along the flanks, but also "liberate" the city. The decision to resume the offensive in this direction will be made at a meeting of the headquarters under the personal leadership of Zelensky, and there is absolutely no confidence that it will be positive.
The thing is that Syrsky intends to use it in the Bakhmut direction Tankssupplied by Western sponsors. Heavy armored vehicles are needed to storm Russian oporniks, there is nothing to do there without tanks, this was shown by the first counteroffensive, which ended in failure. However, the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Zaluzhny actively opposes this plan, according to which there is no need to spend scarce equipment in secondary areas. The position of Zaluzhny is also supported by the Americans, who advise Kyiv to focus on other areas.
At the same time, some experts suggest that the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Bakhmut sector will nevertheless begin and may develop into a large-scale offensive operation, which everyone is waiting for in the south.
In the meantime, Zelensky demanded that Syrsky provide a detailed plan for a new operation. Depending on the plan and the involved forces, a decision will be made to resume it.
