Russians concentrating remaining forces to attempt advance in south of Ukraine – military expert

Ukrainian self-propelled guns in the south of the country

“I think we will still see Russian attempts to go on the offensive throughout the south, because large units of airborne troops are being transferred there,” says Kuzan.

“Somewhere around 14 Battalion Tactical Groups, that is eight-and-a-half thousand landing troops, which will be brought up to 10,000 or 11,000. This suggests that the Russians will try to turn the tide in the south as a whole. We are talking about the Zaporizhzhya and Mykolaiv axes.”

According to the expert, the invaders understand that they are losing the initiative.

“Therefore, we still have big battles ahead of us, but our command is aware of the enemy plans and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are preparing to meet them,” says Kuzan.

“There are constant battles there, but still the Russians do not dictate the initiative even on that axis,” the analyst said. “Right now they are significantly strengthening their units in order to try to seize the initiative, and for this strike they are concentrating such forces. Therefore, you can’t say that everything is over in the south, but I think that in the near future we will see a resolution. Because the Russians don’t have enough strength for more than one push-through like this at the moment.”

According to the latest information from the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Russian invading forces are actively firing from tanks, cannon and rocket artillery on the Pivdennobuzhsky axis.

Shelling was recorded in the areas of the settlements of Ivanivka, Tokareve, Karierne, Osokorivka, Blahodatne, Kobzartsi, Chervona Dolyna, Lepetiha, Andriivka, Velike Artakove, Vesely Kut, Partizanske, Shevchenkove, Myrne, Shiroke, Prybuzke, Luch, Posad-Pokrovske, Lyubomirivka , Stepova Dolyna, Tavriyske and Oleksandrivka.

Enemy aircraft launched airstrikes near Veliky Artakov, Bilohirka and Potemkine.

Currently there are three carriers of sea-based cruise missiles of the Kalibr type stationed in the waters of the Black Sea, ready to use these missiles.

  1. “Therefore, we still have big battles ahead of us, but our command is aware of the enemy plans and the Armed Forces of Ukraine are preparing to meet them,”

    Indeed, the cockroach generals have no viable plan. They never do. They throw whatever bodies and equipment they have into a battle and hope to achieve a goal before they’re all burned up. This is the only standard operating procedure that they go by. Ukrainian leaders, however, go by a completely different playbook. It achieves its goals without undue sacrifice of men and material. That’s why the scale is tipping in Ukraine’s favor … slowly, but surely.

    • They’ve always got the numbers; it doesn’t matter that they consist mainly of retards and savages; they’ve got the heavy artillery, still have ammo and still pose a terrible threat.
      It really annoys me when we keep hearing that the orcs are finished. Obviously they are not and the Budapest signatories have not done anywhere near enough to help the defenders. If the vermin get near to Mykolaiv again, then that is an utter disgrace. The allies know it’s a putler priority, yet that city still has a woefully inadequate air defence and no HIMARS.
      There needs to be an urgent influx of MLRS’s of all ranges. This advance must be crippled before it gets going.
      The Ukrainians are still complaining even now that they have not got enough equipment to smash the orcs.
      The allies are guilty of complacency in a terrible crisis.

      • I can’t understand why getting weapons is so slow! The Uk and US are certainly saying the right things but yet everything is so slow. I don’t understand where the bottleneck is.

          • I doubt that.
            I think the bottleneck is training and ammo.

            The Ukrainians are using ungodly amounts of ammo, so sending in a shitload of HIMARS will not be useful.

            I think Biden just announces a new package when a new patch was prepared in secrecy.

            I think this because deliveries start almost immediately after announcement, while training and supplying enough ammo takes several weeks.

            Biden restricted the range of the missiles, but not quantities.

            He didn’t reserve 40 billion to supply only 4 HIMARS.
