Russian military expert Konstantin Sivkov expressed his opinion on why the RF Armed Forces do not conduct active offensive operations in Ukraine and do not occupy new territories.
According to the doctor of military sciences, in accordance with all the established rules and canons of war, “breaking through” the enemy’s defense in one sector or another occurs with the aim of further breaking through and destroying the enemy’s rear units. At the same time, after the occupation of Bakhmut, the RF Armed Forces did not begin to develop success.
This, according to Sivkov, may be due to two reasons. First, the fear of the Russian leadership about the possible transfer of tactical nuclear weapons by the Western allies to Kyiv in the event of a further offensive by the RF Armed Forces deep into the territory of Ukraine. After all, as the expert put it, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already received all possible weapons, except for nuclear weapons, the supply of which cannot be ruled out either.
Secondly, this is the work of the fifth column.
God forbid the president to defeat this evil spirits. But the fifth column is now undeniably active
As confirmation of his words, the military expert cited three facts: Yevgeny Prigozhin's loud statements directed against the Ministry of Defense, the "strange" appearance of General Lapin, who performed a task unusual for his high position - he commanded units in the Belgorod Region, and even with the coat of arms of the USSR on a chevron , as well as a statement by the chairman of the RF IC, Alexander Bastrykin, about the need for nationalization.
A smart person will draw conclusions, but fools do not need to understand anything
- said the doctor of military sciences.
In conclusion, Sivkov stressed that Russia is now approaching serious events. There is a differentiation of forces in the country.
