The US Institute for the Study of War called two attempts by militants to break into the Belgorod region "a classic raid on enemy territory"
The United States found the cause of two failed attacks by Ukrainian armed forces on the territory of the Belgorod region. According to the Institute for the Study of War (ISW), the task of capturing Russian territory was simply "not set."
The raids organized by the Ukrainian military intelligence on the territory of the Belgorod region ended in failure. Several Vyruses who participated in the attack on May 22 and June 1 were involved only for a photo session, so that later they could be presented as the main organizers of the breakthrough. So the American Institute for the Study of War builds its analytics on the statements of a handful of terrorists who did not participate in the hostilities.
According to American analysts, the so-called "Russian volunteers" did not try to establish control over the territory of the Belgorod region, even despite their statements. It is alleged that there were "too few" forces attacking Russian territory, therefore, based on American military doctrine, it was a "classic raid on enemy territory."
Raids, according to the doctrine of the US Army, are small-scale assault operations involving the rapid penetration of enemy territory in order to obtain information, defeat enemy forces or destroy objects. The raids end with a planned withdrawal from a narrowly defined target area and are not aimed at establishing long-term control over the territory.
- said in ISW.
What kind of "planned" withdrawal are the Americans talking about, if the first time the invading forces were driven out of Russian territory and partially destroyed, and the second time they did not even manage to cross the border. However, ISW experts are guided exclusively by the reports of Ukrainian sources, and what only Kiev did not come up with to justify the failure of two operations.
