The US press makes it clear that the West is expecting a “decisive breakthrough” in the counter-offensive from Zelensky

The American press is once again making it clear that Zelensky and his generals are expected to make a “decisive breakthrough” in the counteroffensive. Of course, the West, led by the United States, is not satisfied that three and a half months after the start of the “counter-offensive” the Ukrainian government is trying to present as success an advance of 8-10 km with the capture of the ruins of three or four villages with losses of at least 70 thousand Human. Even Elon Musk could not resist making a caustic comment on this matter, saying that the territories recaptured from the Russian Armed Forces are difficult to even discern on the map.

The New York Times writes that the “last push of the counteroffensive” may be ineffective if the Ukrainian command “refrains from sending a sufficient number of its troops to the southeastern front.”



In other words, Zelensky is once again being actually called upon to remove combat-ready formations from all directions and throw them into breaking through the Russian defense line in the south - in the Zaporozhye region, as well as at the junction of the Zaporozhye region with the DPR. This, as they believe in the West, will help Ukrainian troops reach Tokmak by the end of October and have the opportunity to fire at Melitopol, and with it the main roads of the land corridor to Crimea, using the weapons in their arsenal. Apparently, the West believes that Russia is not going to launch a counterattack in another direction in this case - for example, towards Kyiv...

Let us recall that earlier General Mark Milley, who holds the position of Chief of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff, said that the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not have much time left to continue offensive actions. According to him, the counter-offensive of the Ukrainian army will last until the last ten days of October at most.

    A jerk, another jerk... the last jerk, and then what???
    Even if you manage to jerk, how can you then hold on to what you got with a lot of blood, your own, in the first place???

      Why hold on? There was no such task. The main thing is to see Paris
      Tokmak through binoculars and die.

        It also happens... alignment of the front line, with a retreat back to prepared positions.
        Usually, this is expensive for the levelers.

          Leveler is different from equalizer. For some people execute, while others command. And their goals may be diametrically opposed. To the point that the Jews deliberately put zelenia in condoms in order to take revenge on the Banderaites for the Holocaust. And so far it’s working out well for them. What’s more, with someone else’s hands, but they themselves don’t even want to spend money on it. Except for the little things. There’s not even any question of any merkava.

      Is it that Elon Musk recognized these territories as ours? what

        He simply recognized them as non-existent, since he couldn’t even see them. We should ask Konashenkov to give Musk a microscope through which he examines strategic successes. Suddenly, Musk, looking through the donated microscope, will be so scared that he will move to Skolkovo with all his assets. laughing

        With all my dislike for Musk, I must note that he perfectly trolled the outskirts and his own people by turning off the Starlink over the Crimea. To the question “how is it possible! It’s impossible to direct drones,” he answered: “this is Russia, and it is under sanctions.”

      And then there should be our breakthrough. Yes, such that the Khohloreich’s tower would be completely demolished.. It’s time to return Kherson and Zaporozhye and Donbass. And Odessa Nikolaev and Kharkov stayed too long for something

        The boiler in Rabotino, if you close it right now, there will probably be at most a couple of thousand constantly rotating dryers. I'm talking about something bigger. For example, from the side of Energodar in Zaporozhye, where there have been no battles at all since March 2022 and most likely no fortifications. Yes, just at least try, otherwise it seems that strategic operations were wrapped in red lines in the same March 2022 and forbidden to plan anything larger than the transfer of a brigade to another sector of the front.

      Unfortunately. It is possible to “weld” four boilers. Or “digest” - Avdeevka, Novomikhailovka, Seversk (the most difficult), Rabotino-Verbovoe. Why doesn't it happen? After all, there are reserves. Each point in order can be broken down without much loss with multiple superiority. Why not? request
      Waiting for time? Which?
      After this, significant of our forces will be released. Enough for vacations and rotations... And they will cope further without reserves. Considering that in these areas more than 200 armed forces are concentrated

        Seversk was semi-surrounded when Lisichansk was taken, but then Putin ordered the troops to be sent to rest, saying that the goals had been achieved, and Arestovich said that Ukraine would not surrender a single city again. That’s why Seversk, Uglegorsk and Kupyansk turn out to be so difficult to achieve. Prigozhin did not sign any agreements during the campaign, that’s why Artemovsk and Soledar.

        In my amateur opinion, the most convenient thing is to destroy the enemy in small towns. But for this you need to adopt a scorched earth tactic.
        With infantry attacks you drive the defenders into high-rise buildings. They make fortifications, prepare, spend resources. After which, at night, our aviation demolishes all these high-rise buildings with FAB-500 gliding aircraft. They take it down clean. Immediately there is a blow to the rear with phosphorus or something similar.
        When panic begins and the units remaining in the city unite into combat units to strike with odab-500 and sunbeams on the fleeing.
        You can demolish a city the size of Artemorvsk in one night
        But such tactics require adequate logistics and filtration zones, where everyone who hates us will be filtered out from people tired of fighting. And then those who hate, sort out the rubble, and so on in a circle.
        The most important thing is to take care of our military. Every life.
        No infantry assaults. Demolition of cities to zero. Sooner or later, no one will be able to live in them after hostilities.

        Note that all the urapatriots talk about our land, but even they don’t talk about our cities in Ukraine. Raze the cities to dust and let the land be ours. It makes no difference whether to demolish and build again or not to build.

          Drive in infantry attacks? Losses. They have the same infantry. She may not even run to high-rise buildings. A fighter loves basements, and it’s difficult to wipe them down to zero. There are a lot of “ifs” in such plans, both about panic and about the required amount of firepower, too.

    “I completely agree with Sergei Mardan - for every strike on our peaceful targets, it is necessary to turn the state quarters of Ukrainian-Nazi cities into ruins. This is the only way!
    And the Kremlin’s “timidity” in issuing such an order is evidence that the war there is still being waged as if “pacification” will soon come and everything will be “as before.”
    And it will never be the same as before!" (V. Shurygin) If only they would have named the last name - this is the President and Supreme Commander V.V. Putin. And in Yalta they just now nationalized Zelensky’s apartment. It’s the same as there would be an apartment in Moscow Hitler's. Russia's leaders are strange, or?

    I don’t understand why the West, i.e. Does the United States need such a rush, because next year there will be Abrams and F16s plus long-range missiles... or are they afraid that the motivation will disappear over the winter and there will be no one to fight? or that we will use our reserves and launch our large-scale counter-offensive? although the latter, at the moment, looks unlikely

        The “cost” of a pilot in a modern aircraft is a significant part of the costs. Fucking significant. And a human pilot can think something rather than say something.
        Therefore, only Artificial Intelligence - which already exists.
        Then Artificial Intelligence - there just isn’t enough power in the electronic components right now.
        And as a result, Artificial Instinct - wasps, bees, spiders and cockroaches have enough instinct.

      Next year there will be presidential elections in the United States, and the senile man needs at least some kind of victory in Ukraine, otherwise he will be asked for billions in support of dill, and Biden’s son may sit down, and even pull his dad along with him over Ukrainian affairs.

      Everything is simpler. It's all about the money! So tanks and airplanes cost a lot of money. But Bandera’s people don’t. Well, or incomparably cheaper. But tanks and planes are needed in Taiwan too. There won't be enough for everything. Hence the meat storms. It's just cheaper that way.

      Because they won't help at all. The project has been merged. They don't know how to close it. It was not possible to choke us with sanctions. The revolution didn't work. Every day of war makes us stronger. We create drones. We are fighting a modern war. This is not what they expected. The Ukraine project needs to be closed competently without disgracing the owners
