The Russian occupiers have concentrated offensive forces in the JFO zone and southern Ukraine.
Without a significant supply of reserves, the occupiers will not be able to carry out an offensive against Kyiv, Sumy, Chernihiv and Kharkov.
According to an UNIAN correspondent, Aleksey Arestovich, adviser to the head of the President’s Office, said this at a briefing.
“They are not withdrawing troops, but they had six operational directions, and now there are only three. This shows that they have exhausted their forces … They have used 97 battalion tactical groups in total, that is, more than 130 thousand combat personnel, and in in general, about 200 thousand. Of these, 15 thousand were completely destroyed, and 18 were not combat-ready. About 60 thousand were connected by battles,” he said.
According to Arestovich, another 10,000 are in reserve and they are being transferred to those directions that seem more promising to the invaders – the south and east.
“As for Kyiv, Kharkov, Chernigov and Sumy, there is no talk of any offensive at all, and without a significant supply of reserves, which there is nowhere to take, movement to Kyiv, Kharkov, Chernigov, Sumy is impossible. Moreover, they transferred most of the troops from there to the south and east,” he said.
The adviser to the head of the Presidential Office noted that out of six directions, the Russians had not even three, but two and a half.
“The operational directions that they have left are Kherson-Nikolaev, and then Nikolaev is conditional …, the JFO zone, where they are trying to surround our troops … they fail. And this is Mariupol, which is part of the direction of the JFO zone. That There are actually – these are two and a half directions out of six that were,” he said.
Arestovich stressed that there is no offensive now in the Kiev direction and the enemy does not have the opportunity to attack, as well as in Chernigov, Sumy and Kharkov, where he is mainly in defensive positions.
“We strike…, our special forces are operating, partisans are operating, local residents are operating. And the occupiers have very difficult prospects here,” he stressed.
Earlier it was reported that the Russian occupier in a conversation intercepted by the SBU complained about the serious losses of the Russian army in Ukraine.
