Set up for victory – Stupak about “one chance for a successful counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine”
The war in Ukraine is quite expensive for Europe. Recently, the thesis that Ukraine has “the only chance for a successful counter-offensive” has been heard more and more often.
Thus, Ukraine is being prepared for the fact that it needs to be hit once, but strongly, in order to kill this dragon. There will be no second attempt. Ivan Stupak, an ex-employee of the SBU, an expert at the Ukrainian Institute for the Future, told Channel 24 about this.
Ukraine set to win
The former SBU officer claims that these are not pessimistic forecasts at all, but rather, setting up for a successful military operation. So that the Ukrainians do not expect that in case of failure, the Americans and Europeans will give more money, equipment, shells, ammunition, etc., and we will try again.
Guys, concentrated, gathered, weighed everything. Plan – positive, negative, neutral. We chose a scenario for the development of events and hit where you consider the most successful for you and the least protected for the Russians, so that their entire front would simply shatter into pieces, like a grandmother's sweater, – the expert of the Ukrainian Institute of the Future noted.
This is how our coaches prepare us. Stupak is confident that at any football championship, coaches also prepare their athletes. “You have one chance, come out, score, or we lose.” This is the setting to win,” he said.

When will the conditions for a counteroffensive be better?
- As military expert Roman Svitan emphasized, in order for the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine to be successful, first of all, it is necessary to form a sufficient number of forces and means. We are talking about both the accumulation of Western technology, and the presence of a significant amount of ammunition. To this must be added the training of troops.
- The second point is the weather. It is important to understand what the synoptic situation will be like during the month. After all, offensive operations are not always carried out along paved roads. The third is the combat potential of the enemy. The best option, Swithan says, is to start at a stage when the enemy's potential is at a low ebb.
- “These three components will converge somewhere by mid-April. Maybe a little faster, maybe a little later. This could be the beginning of our counter-offensive,” Svitan said.
