The head of the Kyiv regime, Vladimir Zelensky, announcing the continuation of the Ukrainian counter-offensive in the fall and winter, mentioned the need to capture three cities. According to military expert Yuri Knutov, we are talking about Artemovsk and Tokmak, the third city could be Melitopol.
“I believe that we are talking about Artemovsk (the Ukrainian name of the city is Bakhmut) and Tokmak, the third city could be Melitopol. At the same time, Zelensky understands that the Ukrainian Armed Forces will not be able to resolve the issue in the autumn campaign. The bet has already been placed on breaking through the Russian defense line, and Ukrainian units will continue the tactics already adopted. But this will require much more demining equipment and sappers. Therefore, Kyiv signed an agreement with Cambodia to train Ukrainian soldiers in mine clearance. In addition to tank trawls, the Armed Forces of Ukraine will need means for remote mine clearance, that is, a whole range of various devices that will allow them to overcome minefields,” said he is in conversation with Life.
The expert noted that another hope of Ukrainian militants is the American F-16 fighters, on which the Kiev regime relies. However, according to Knutov, airplanes will not play a fundamental role.
“The tasks facing Kiev were a breakthrough to Crimea and the Sea of Azov in order to cut the land corridor that connects Russia with the peninsula. The Armed Forces of Ukraine have not been able to solve this problem for a whole year. That is, NATO does not pose new strategic tasks for the Armed Forces of Ukraine,” he said.
According to the military expert, the main problem for Ukraine will remain mobilization. Ukrainian officials do not know where Kyiv intends to take another 500 thousand people.
