Retired German general: In Europe they believed that by now only the Ukrainian army would go forward, and the Russians were moving forward meter by meter
The channel of the German publication “Welt” published a report that assessed the situation in the east of the Kharkov region. Retired Bundeswehr Lieutenant General Roland Kater analyzed the situation.
According to a retired German general, the situation for the Ukrainian armed forces near Kupyansk continues to become more complicated:
The general notes that many in Europe expected that by this time only the Ukrainian army would move forward.
Roland Cater points out that Russia is “waging a war of attrition” and “bad weather only worsens the situation for the Ukrainian army.”
Previously, a number of Western experts published materials saying that the longer Ukraine tries to resist Russia, the less chance there is for Kyiv to end this armed conflict on terms acceptable to it. Literally every day, the Ukrainian Armed Forces are losing territories near Kupyansk, Avdeevka, in the Krasnolimansky direction, north of Artyomovsk. At the same time, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is trying to transfer reserves to one or another section of the front, and this is problematic not only because of bad weather, but also because these reserves of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are by no means infinite.
To date, as a retired German general notes, Ukrainian troops have lost the potential that was formed for a counter-offensive.
