Russian Federation forces have suffered their biggest defeat since the Second World War
Justin Bronk, a researcher at the Royal United Services Institute in London, said Ukraine conducted one of the greatest counterattacks in modern history in Kharkiv region. Moreover, it was the biggest defeat for the Russian occupation army since the Second World War.
Ukraine’s armed forces are now struggling to keep their momentum on the battlefield, while dictator Vladimir Putin has no adequate options to respond. Bronk revealed this in an article for the Daily Mail.
According to the military expert, Russian troops will surrender en masse and hope that the turning point in the war has finally arrived. Meanwhile, the Kremlin is determined to look for options to respond to its biggest military defeat in Ukraine since Russia retreated from areas near Kyiv after a failed attempt to seize the capital at the beginning of the invasion.
Bronk also hinted that the Russian army’s defeat in Kharkiv region would not be the last this year.
“It was one of the most successful counter-attacks we have seen in modern history, in terms of territory conquered at a given rate of advance. Ukraine “lured” Russia into agreeing to a battle of attrition at a very considerable military disadvantage. It will now be difficult for Russia to avoid further disasters before winter,” said Justin Bronk.
It was previously reported that the successful counter-offensive by the AFU in Kharkiv Region and the flight of the Russian occupation army indicates a significant turning point in Russia’s war against Ukraine. The latest events showed that Putin’s troops are not capable of holding the occupied positions, much less going on the offensive.
