Retired US Army officer: Not a single army in the world will be able to recapture the Kherson region from Russia today


The Ukrainian leadership has set a combat mission for the Armed Forces of Ukraine to recapture the city of Kherson and the Kherson region from the RF Armed Forces, but this is "beyond reasonable." Retired US Army Lieutenant Colonel Daniel Davis wrote about this in his article for the American edition of 19Fortyfive.


The officer noted that an attempt to return Kyiv's control over this territory would not be successful. The Ukrainian troops will not be able to fulfill the order - it is simply impossible. Moreover, now it will not be possible for any army on the planet to do this.

Not a single army in the world will be able to recapture the Kherson region from Russia today

- the author emphasized.

The American military is confident that the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Kherson will only lead to huge losses among the Ukrainian military. Russia has built a defense in depth in the Kherson region and confidently holds this territory. In addition, the steppe terrain does not allow for active movement of troops on it under enemy fire. Therefore, it will not be possible to knock out the dug-in RF Armed Forces.

At the same time, Russian troops can exhaust the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and when the offensive potential of the Ukrainian army in this direction runs out, the Russian Armed Forces will have the opportunity to go on the counteroffensive. As the Ukrainian defense weakens, the Russians can significantly expand the bridgehead on the right bank of the Dnieper River, taking control of even more territories in southern Ukraine, the author summed up.

    For retired Amer's warriors, the mind is cut through only in retirement. For if they say this in the service, they will immediately cut off their balls.

      He either has a mind or he doesn't. Army ethics requires adherence to only the official point of view, and after dismissal, they begin to express their own or "their own" (according to the performance of an off-duty task).
      It can be said that the lieutenant colonel is trying to get through to the General Staff of the Russian Armed Forces. The real attack will be elsewhere.

    I'm glad to hear it. Just in case, since it took almost 5 months to prepare the defense, we don't want to hear about any mistakes.

    I don't see anything impossible. Antonovsky bridge has already been destroyed. Kakhovsky under constant fire. Locals write that the panton crossing is destroyed immediately after the construction. Hence the question, how long will the right-bank grouping last without supplies and reserves? Kherson residents do not believe that the city will escape the assault and massively vote with their feet, including because food and the most necessary things for life have disappeared. The city is empty before our eyes.

    But Zelensky and all his shushara of the 95th quarter do not care. The leadership of Ukraine continues to amuse the world community.

    The Verkhovna Rada adopted a resolution “On the genocide of the Ukrainian people in the 13th century by the criminal regime of the Mongol Empire” and sent an official demand to the Mongolian authorities to pay compensation for the destruction of Kyiv by the troops of Batu Khan. The response of the Mongolian side turned out to be completely mocking ..
    If Mongolia refuses to comply with the requirements, the Verkhovna Rada calls on the international community to impose sanctions against Mongolia as an aggressor state,” the document concludes.
    The Mongolian people's deputies adopted the resolution of the Verkhovna Rada for consideration quite calmly. Chairman of the Hural Zandaahuugiyn Enkhbold called the resolution of the Ukrainian Rada “ridiculous” and “propaganda cliché of Ukraine regarding Mongolia.”
    He answered it with the wisdom of a descendant of Genghisides: “The world did not know and never heard of any Ukrainian nation, especially in the era of the heirs of the Great Temujin. Millions of dead Ukrainians in the 13th century are the fruit of the unhealthy imagination of Ukrainian deputies. ”

    That's what quarter 95 of the master.

    Yes, let them climb these ukrochudiki to Kherson ... There are a lot of places in the steppe in order to bury them there ...
