The situation at the front remains extremely tense, despite the successes of Ukraine in the Kharkiv region, but the enemy is massively putting pressure on other areas.
The Slobozhansky and Donetsk directions remain the sharpest, there were 12 attacks in a day, but all were repulsed, military expert Oleg Zhdanov notes on the air of the United Marathon.
The enemy does not leave attempts to break through the defense. “In fact, they go on the attack every two hours,” the expert explains.
In addition, the attack on Azovstal in Mariupol continues, but counter-offensive events are taking place in the Kharkov region. Zhdanov notes that the Russians are trying to kill two birds with one stone – to surround the military and approach the borders of the Luhansk and Donetsk regions.
Zhdanov also explains that Russian troops in the Izyum direction will run out of steam, so Putin will need to fill a pause and the Belarusian troops, which now occupy operational areas near the Ukrainian borders, can be involved. The expert estimates that this will happen 50 to 50, because “Lukashenko declares in one direction, and the troops go in the other.”
As for the Bessarabian direction, the expert confirms that the professional actions of the Ukrainian military on Serpent Island prevented the enemy here. The enemy’s S-300 anti-aircraft complex was destroyed there, attempts to install a new one there, the enemy fails, so the situation in Bessarabia remains controlled and, accordingly, the troops in Transnistria will “sit quietly”.
But, according to the expert, now a large amount of equipment is being assembled in the Crimea, and, most likely, there will be a call to mainland Ukraine, which will most likely be located already in Kherson.
In addition, Zhdanov reports that rocket attacks will not decrease. Everything indicates that Russia is expanding the range of missiles used. And these are still Soviet stocks, so it is impossible to estimate their quantity.
The situation can be changed by weapons that appear in Ukraine from partners. This will allow us to switch to active defense and create a certain shield in Ukraine.
