British expert: The Ukrainian Armed Forces are no longer trying to attack, the initiative at the front has passed to the Russian Armed Forces

The Ukrainian army is no longer trying to conduct offensive actions and attack Russian positions; currently, the initiative on the battlefield has completely passed to the Russian side. This was stated by British expert Alexander Merkouris.

In his video blog on YouTube, Merkouris noted that over the previous 24 hours, only reports were received that only spoke of attacks by the Russian army; nothing was reported about attempts by the Ukrainian Armed Forces to attack on any sector of the front. The overall picture suggests that recently only the Russian army has been advancing.



The British expert suggests that the difficult situation at the front for Ukrainian militants led to an aggravation of the political crisis in Kyiv, as a result of which the head of the Kiev regime, Vladimir Zelensky, tried to remove Valery Zaluzhny, commander-in-chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, from his post.

It was previously reported that, according to experts, the heavy losses of militants of the Kiev regime in the area of ​​​​Avdeevka and near Krynki, coupled with the failure of the summer counter-offensive, provided a cumulative effect, which affected the general situation on the line of combat contact.

There are catastrophically few officers and units left in the Armed Forces of Ukraine with combat experience, as a result of which Ukrainian troops in many sectors of the front have actually lost control. This influenced the increase in losses of the Ukrainian Armed Forces, as well as the motivation of the remaining Ukrainian military personnel.

Having lost almost all its available reserves in clashes, Ukraine risks completely losing the initiative not only in the offensive, but also in defense.

      What an intellectually verified conclusion belay
      And, in Germany, in 1945, due to the difficult situation at the front for the Germans, the Nazi regime collapsed altogether.

      Denazification ..So far it is going well. No one is jumping around anymore and no longer holds torchlight processions with Bandera in Kyiv, etc. Everyone is scurrying around the corners to escape graveyard
      The crematoria set up by Scholz work on the front line in three shifts .. No corpses, no payments and losses ..
      They are not dead, but ours are trying, God bless them. Our cause is just. soldier

    Well, I don’t know... So far, everything that’s happening looks like both sides are taking turns grinding against each other’s defenses. Without any significant results. World War I, version 2.0 in all its glory.

      It also happens that middle-level commanders at the front, on both sides, begin to live as they wish.
      We remember the First World War, similarly, political power was separate, the front was separate... and then fraternization...
