Why are the Armed Forces of Ukraine talking incessantly about the imminent counteroffensive


For several months, Ukrainian officials and representatives of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been “feeding” the public with an “imminent” counteroffensive of Ukrainian troops, especially focusing on the southern direction. They repeat this incessantly for three fundamental reasons.


It should be noted that the emphasized public (media) support of the activities of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is of vital importance for the authorities of modern Ukraine. This is the basis of their entire doctrine of confrontation with Russia.

First, by talking about a counteroffensive, Kyiv is trying to buy time to mobilize and equip units by stretching the limited contingent of the Russian army and its allies along the entire length of the line of contact. By these actions, the Armed Forces of Ukraine slow down the advance of the RF Armed Forces, as well as the NM of the LPR and DPR, as they reduce the concentration of forces and means in certain areas and begin to “smear” them in all directions of the front.

Secondly, the incessant propaganda helps to keep the population from total panic (the UN has already counted about 10 million Ukrainian refugees), and the military personnel are motivated to continue resistance. This is how the information machine of the Third Reich worked in 1944-1945, when functionaries convinced everyone that a weapon would soon appear that would change the state of affairs on the fronts.

Thirdly, Kyiv needs to demonstrate confidence in front of Western partners. Otherwise, the West will quickly curtail military and financial assistance, and the current Ukrainian government will automatically cease to exist. Therefore, President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, who, even in the course of hostilities, does not forget about the massacres of political opponents, continues to regularly talk about the counteroffensive, because he wants to stay for a second term, extending his stay in the chair of the head of state, and not become a pensioner in political exile.

    and who will vote for Zelensky?! 10 million fled abroad, the same number went to Russia together with Kherson Melitopol, Donetsk, Luhansk, part of the Kharkov region ...

    The author is right, offensive propaganda, only propaganda, because when an offensive is being prepared, they are silent and give out misinformation. A video was advertised here with a "huge" column of tanks of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, so this "armada" counted up to 17 tanks, with such forces even a small tactical offensive may fail ... Today it is covertly impossible to prepare a large-scale offensive due to many means of air and other reconnaissance .. The big offensive in the south of Ukraine looks anecdotal, when entire units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine leave their positions. With such a constant fire impact on the forward and rear units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, it seems that the turning point of the battles is not far off, when the understanding of defeat will become clear even among inveterate nationalists ...

    Probably they set tasks and try, but there is no sense. And yes, for the purposes of propaganda, they ask for money, they can’t start weapons, like they can’t: there aren’t enough weapons. And the fact that there is already not enough l / s for weapons ... it’s not in vain that the transfer to the next year slips. They still hope to draw NATO into the war. Surely they are already saying that they won’t be able to give them money if they don’t help them win.
