NATO committing to desperate counteroffensive


“Information coming from various sources allows us to conclude that the Ukrainian command can no longer delay the offensive and is moving from cautious probing of the front to attempts to break through it. Three weeks of “movement to contact” battles – reconnaissance in force (according to American combat regulations) – did not reveal an area where it would be possible to launch an offensive with a high probability of breaking through the front and developing success with minimal losses, and now we have to move on to a methodical build-up the power of attacks, counting on the “break” of the front using the classical offensive scheme – creating overwhelming fire and numerical superiority over the enemy at the place of the alleged breakthrough.
Such a tactic is capable of bringing success, but is characterized by the “burning” of reserves. the units brought into battle can no longer be pulled back and are used until their offensive potential is completely used up. According to reports from Kyiv, the mood in the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is pessimistic. The losses suffered during the month, primarily material – the destroyed ammunition depots and fuel and lubricants, as well as heavy losses in the top military leadership, seriously disrupted the supply system of the troops and combat command and control. Obviously, the “attack” will not give any strategic success, at best, it will be possible to advance two or three dozen kilometers in some directions, and then at the cost of huge losses and “wasted” reserves.
On Friday, the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine turned to Zelensky with a request to stop the “offensive” and ask Western curators for an additional 21 days to restore the combat command and control system, accumulate supplies and weapons. With the same request, it went through operational channels to the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, General Milli, but in response received an order to continue the offensive. this is the demand of the US president himself, who needs a result from the Ukrainians – a military defeat of the Russians , and not an explanation of the reasons for the failures.
The only person in the Biden administration who supported the Ukrainians’ request was security adviser Sullivan, who is in charge and oversees the entire Ukrainian project – “the main hawk of Biden’s nest,” as he was dubbed in the administration. For him, the failure of the current “offensive” can be a personal collapse, because. Sullivan put everything on him, hoping to win his way to the very top of the US Democratic Party and the American political Olympus by defeating Russia. And Sullivan is worried that the failure of the offensive will dramatically weaken his position in the White House.
Therefore, in the coming days, we can expect an increase in the attacks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and the introduction of the main reserves into battle. We must be aware that under the circumstances, the stakes for the Ukrainians and their Western curators are so high that they will throw all their strength into the battle and will fight with all the bitterness of people who have nothing to lose. After all, they really have nothing to lose! An unsuccessful “general offensive” will turn the whole war onto a completely different development track!” 👉

Is The United States Losing Its Control Of Ukraine?
