💬 Mykhailo Podolyak, Zelensky’s adviser:
🟠 Russia has kind of taught everybody that a counteroffensive requires huge amounts of manpower like a giant fist and just go in one direction, but a Ukrainian counteroffensive looks very different.
🟠 Ukraine won’t use the tactics of the 60s and 70s, of the last century.
🟠 Ukraine hopes to degrade the invaders’ strength through a lack of supplies and lack of ammunition that will make Russians fight like they did on the first months of the war.
🟠 Russian ears only open up when there is a giant military bat hitting the Russian head.
