< p _ngcontent-sc100="" class="news-annotation">Military experts have repeatedly noted that the occupiers will advance again. We are talking about the coming months.
Ukrainian intelligence claims that Russian troops are preparing for an offensive in the spring or early summer. These statements partially confirm the forecasts of American analysts about the beginning of decisive actions by the invaders in the coming months.
This spring will be decisive
The representative of the GUR of Ukraine Vadim Skibitsky said that the spring of 2023 will be decisive in the war. He also confirmed that intelligence had recorded signs of a regrouping of Russian troops in preparation for a “big offensive” in the Donbass.
Skibitsky also noted that Russian troopsis unlikely to attack from Belarus,or south of Ukraine.
The estimates of the representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate confirm the current forecasts of ISW about Russia's intentions in the war. Also, American analysts emphasize the continued support of Western partners to ensure that Ukraine does not lose initiative on the battlefield.
Possibility of another Russian offensive: briefly
- SBU Major General Viktor Yagun said that the Russians will try to reach the administrative borders of Donetsk and Luhansk regions Also they will try to seize Zaporozhye, because they wrote it down in their constitution and they want to cut Kharkov off from Ukraine. The issue of an offensive from Belarus remains a separate issue.
- Ben Hodges, the former commander of US troops in Europe, said that he sees no prospects for the success of the Russian occupiers. The invaders had every possible advantage in the war. At the same time, they fail to achieve results. In particular, at Bakhmut, Russia is losing thousands of people. The enemy failed to capture the city.
- In an interview with a German TV channel, Vladimir Zelensky said that Vladimir Putin is thinking from which direction to attack, and in Ukraine they are thinking where to defend themselves.
