According to Alexander Kovalenko, each of the bridgeheads has its own advantages and disadvantages. However, which one our military will choose, they know only in the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
We are talking about the left-bank part of the Kherson region, and the Zaporozhye region – towards Melitopol, as well as the Lugansk region. Alexander Kovalenko, coordinator of the Information Resistance group, said this in a commentary to Focus.
“Each of them has its own advantages and disadvantages,” he notes. “Which one will be chosen is known only to the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. We must understand that an analytical review of the situation is being carried out for each of the bridgeheads. The counteroffensive will take place where we will effective in a counteroffensive.This scenario will differ from those used in the northern bridgehead, Kharkiv region and the right-bank Kherson region in 2022. Only the occupiers carry out offensive operations according to the same manual. Counteroffensives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine do not occur according to the same scenarios. I expect something completely unexpected “.
At the same time, Kovalenko clarifies that in Bakhmut, where fighting is underway and the Ukrainian army is holding positions, a counteroffensive is not yet possible.
“The situation will not change there in the near future. It will be mainly defense by the Armed Forces of Ukraine. There is no talk of a counteroffensive in Bakhmut, as long as only counterattacks are possible there. Bakhmut is important in order to prepare reserves and get equipment,” he clarifies.
For more details on how the meeting of the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny with the generals of the NATO countries, and how this will affect the front, read in our article: “We are planning a counteroffensive. What Commander-in-Chief Valery Zaluzhny is talking about with NATO generals.”
Recall that over the past three months, Ukraine has received and will receive more equipment than could be imagined since the beginning of the invasion. For example, The Economist writes that of all the military aid promised by the Pentagon since the start of the war, 40% – worth more than $8 million – arrived within three months of December 9th. In addition, instead of reinforcing Bakhmut, Zaluzhny sent the Ukrainian military to study abroad. So since January, the training command of the 7th US Army has been conducting five-week courses for Ukrainian units at the Grafenwehr training ground in Germany.
