According to him, the Russians will be forced to talk about the successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine after the liberation of Kupyansk and Izyum.
The Russians are deliberately silent about the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkiv and Kherson regions. There are several reasons for this.
This was stated by Russian human rights activist Mark Feigin in an interview with OBOZREVATEL .
According to him, one of the main reasons for hushing up the successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, in particular in the Kharkiv region, is that the command of the Russian Federation still hopes to correct the situation, prevent the fall of Kupyansk, and ultimately Izyum. The invaders hope that they will return to their previous positions, and the successes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be explained by a short-term breakthrough.
“But we still don’t know what this threatens, because the plans of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are probably long-term. It is unlikely that they plan to simply counterattack and return to their previous positions. Considering the depth of the breakthrough, this is unlikely. cities going to Kupyansk. But now the Armed Forces of Ukraine are near Kupyansk (on September 10, the Armed Forces of Ukraine raised the flag in the center of Kupyansk, the liberation of the city was confirmed in the OVA – UNIAN). The breakthrough is expanding,” Feygin said.
Secondly, the Russians are afraid to show their weakness, because “propaganda constantly shouted that they were advancing, that the Armed Forces of Ukraine had already been defeated, all the” Nazis “surrendered, there was no equipment, it was all over.”
“So far, they do not have normal explanatory methods that could describe the situation. Now they are thinking how best to present it. If Kupyansk falls, they will somehow keep silent about it, but if Izyum falls, then they will have to say: , instructors, mercenaries, weapons”. But to lose the Armed Forces of Ukraine, which they seem to have already defeated ten times … There is also an important ideological moment – the “Nazis” won, “Heil Zelensky”, “Nazi” yellow-blue flags are already hanging everywhere The “Red Army” was brought down to God knows what level. How to present it all? How to win back ideologically? They prepared the population for eternal victories, and here it is, “Feygin said.
The human rights activist says that it is worth watching developments over the next few weeks. However, he does not predict the success of the Russian Federation, on the contrary, he reminds that the Ramstein held, Ukraine will be brought up arms.
“Lend-lease is the default option. This way you can reach the Russian borders, and all Russian groups, several tens of thousands, may end up without ammunition, without food, without fuel. And what will they do? It all depends on the next day “Two. If they take Kupyansk, then everything will be very bad for Russia, very sad. The degree of demoralization will be so significant that it will not be clear at all what they were fighting for. They fought for months, then they asked for everything in a few days. Morale is obviously not up,” he concluded.
Recall, the occupation troops of the Russian Federation broke into Ukraine early in the morning on February 24, attacked military and civilian facilities and captured settlements, in particular, in the Kharkiv region
The army gives a worthy rebuff to the invaders and at the end of August went on a counteroffensive. On September 9, President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that our soldiers had liberated more than 30 settlements in the Kharkiv region .
