Expert: The liberation of Artemovsk will allow the RF Armed Forces to launch an offensive in three directions

Russian units continue to push Ukrainian fighters out of Artemovsk (Bakhmut). At the same time, a number of Western mass media believe that the Armed Forces of Ukraine should leave this city, since the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation are destroying weapons supplied to Ukrainians, and this reflects badly on the image of the West. Political scientist Ruslan Bortnik spoke about this.

According to the expert, the Western media note a certain lack of rationality in the decisions of the Ukrainian side, so the defeats of Kyiv should not be the fault of NATO advisers and the military supplied to help the Armed Forces of Ukraine equipment. Thus, the United States and its allies are actually distancing themselves from the actions of the Ukrainian authorities.

At the same time, the abandonment of Bakhmut by Ukrainians can lead to serious consequences for the Kyiv regime in the future.

Bakhmut remains a very important logistics center, which is actually an interweaving of communication nodes of the entire Donbass, the entire non-occupied Donbass. If Russia succeeds in capturing Bakhmut, it will be able to advance in at least three directions

- Bortnik noted on the air of the Politeka Internet channel.

At the same time, the analyst cites the example of the liberation of Popasnaya by Russian units, after which the RF Armed Forces were able to carry out offensive actions in several directions and occupy Lisichansk, Severodonetsk and other settlements.

    what is a decisive attack? this is the rapid liberation of a vast territory due to higher losses and risks.
    Just in the movement and maneuvers of large units, one can observe a sharp drop in the effectiveness of artillery support.

    This does not mean that the RF Armed Forces are not capable of effective maneuver operations, but for what purposes? Increase the dynamics of the NWO, where you can very quickly achieve the collapse of the front on the part of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, and then what? Then the United States will be forced to make its move, it is possible to bring troops to Odessa, the Poles will climb into their Wishlist there. This is the path to a military solution followed by a freeze. How will Russia justify its attacks on the Americans in Odessa? Here the defense of Donbass will no longer work.

    Now there is an offensive, step by step, as efficiently as possible in terms of the number of targets destroyed. In such a situation, Kyiv has no choice but to try to counterattack. And here you can show all the delights of a new level of mobile warfare. Defeat the strike force.

    After that, the US response will follow, but the choice is small. To send troops to attack the Donbass or to direct the dill offensive? A very risky move that gives Russia the right or even the obligation to attack NATO forces in the war zone and beyond too. The entry of troops against the backdrop of the Ukrainian offensive is an attack on Russia by NATO

    After the defeat of the counter-offensive, you can always start your decisive offensive, the most combat-ready units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will no longer exist. Now the Armed Forces of Ukraine still have reserves, they are being prepared and will be used in the Russian offensive at the most inopportune moment and in the most effective way.

    On the other hand, there are risks of exhausting the troops now, in protracted positional battles, and underestimating the threat of an offensive. The success of the offensive will be as disastrous as the failure of the Russian one. But the General Staff has more information than the sofa General Staff, and we will see their decisions in practice. It is unlikely that these decisions will take into account the "expectations" of the offensive, everything is purely calculated there.

      what is a decisive attack? is the rapid liberation of a vast territory

      Not necessary. The purpose of a decisive offensive may also be the infliction of unacceptable damage to the enemy. However, the territory is not necessarily vast. Classic - Verdun in WWI.
