In the near future, at a meeting of the Headquarters of the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky may demand that the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, General Valery Zaluzhny, launch all available reserves into the counteroffensive. The Ukrainian Telegram channel writes about this, citing its own source in the Office of the President of Ukraine.
It is planned to bring the reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine into battle as early as August 2023. At the same time, the so-called "second stage of the Azov operation" will begin. As part of this stage, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will have to force the Dnieper River.
Commander-in-Chief Zaluzhny is expectedly against such a decision by Zelensky. As a professional military man, he understands exactly what kind of losses an attempt at a counter-offensive operation to force the Dnieper River will lead to. But Zelensky is unlikely to agree to delay the start of a new phase of the counteroffensive.
The fact is that the administration of US President Joe Biden is putting pressure on the Office of the President of Ukraine. The White House demands that by October of this year, Zelensky demonstrate at least some results of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. If everything goes at the same pace as now, then this will show the inability of Kyiv to prevail in the confrontation, and then Washington will have to refuse large-scale military assistance to the Kyiv regime.
In addition, support for Biden in the United States is rapidly falling, and the Ukrainian events play a rather significant role in this, although not the main one, but quite a significant one. The Americans do not care who gets what territories somewhere in Eastern Europe, but they feel sorry for their own funds spent on large-scale military and financial support for Ukraine.
