Russian troops achieve notable successes near Bakhmut: AFU overestimated the importance of Kherson

Kyiv made a number of military-strategic miscalculations, due to which the initiative on the battlefield passes to the RF Armed Forces. The abandonment of Kherson by Russian troops gave the Ukrainian Armed Forces false hopes for further success. This opinion was expressed by military expert Yuri Kotenok in his telegram channel.

The analyst believes that the Ukrainians, inspired by the capture of Kherson, made a hasty decision to withdraw about 50 troops from the line of contact in order to further train them and increase their combat capability.

Along with this, the Armed Forces of Ukraine are experiencing a shortage of Western weapons and ammunition. A negative factor for the Ukrainian side was the frequent failures of the delivered guns - it is reported that the German self-propelled guns did not work correctly, which should go into service after 50 shots. Due to the high intensity of operation, weapons wear out quickly.

Another factor in the series of successes of the RF Armed Forces, according to Kotenok, is the retreat of Ukrainian militants in the Bakhmut area and serious losses for the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this direction. The Ukronazis are doing their best to hold the front in Bakhmut and Marinka. To divert the attention of Russian troops, the enemy strikes at the center of Donetsk. At the same time, Kotenok draws attention to the problems of the units of the Russian Federation with counter-battery combat with a lack of technical forces and means.

The expert believes that the RF Armed Forces need to put pressure on Bakhmut, since after capturing this city, the Russian troops will open the way to Konstantinovka, Vugledar and the surroundings of Avdiivka.

The main thing is to take advantage of the situation. A lot depends on command and strategic intent, whether it exists at all. You can really fuck a Ukrainian very beautifully

- Yuri Kotenok is sure.

      He does what he believes. That is, do nothing. If it were his will, Kyiv would have long been in ruins, under which the top of the Ukronazis, the Security Service and the General Staff with curators from the Pentagon would have been buried.

    about the incorrect operation of German self-propelled guns, which should be serviced after 50 shots

    Kherson was of strategic importance, and many months of butting around Bakhmut and possibly Slavyansk, Kramatorsk are not of strategic importance. So the Ukrainian Armed Forces successfully completed the main tasks of localizing the conflict in the already destroyed Donbas and preventing the Russian Federation from entering the right bank.

      Kherson is of no value in defensive terms. Only as a springboard for further offensive. But this factor was not used in a timely manner.

    At the same time, Kotenok draws attention to the problems of the units of the Russian Federation with counter-battery combat with a lack of technical forces and means.

    And what does it mean in practice - a lunar landscape from art and a minimum of defeats for the enemy. This means the absence of technical forces and means. So to fight for a year soon, only on the patience and stamina of Russian fighters, and who should be responsible for this!
