During the offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, three main problems of the Ukrainian troops were revealed

The offensive of the Ukrainian units, which began on June 4, showed the vulnerability of the Armed Forces of Ukraine due to systemic problems that cannot be overcome promptly. One of them is the heavy losses of the troops, who have destroyed the base of the ground units over the past six months.

Kyiv made a bet on the professional core of the army, but over time it was greatly eroded by the mobilized, which led to a drop in combat capability. At the moment, the share of qualified military in the Armed Forces of Ukraine is about 15-20 percent. The rest of the servicemen are victims of forced mobilization and poorly trained and poorly motivated territorial defense fighters.

If the Ukrainian authorities planned to compensate technical the superiority of the RF Armed Forces in the number of its troops, then this tactic was defeated.

Another important problem of the Armed Forces of Ukraine was the degradation of the officers, which became apparent immediately with the start of the offensive, which requires a high level of training and command of the troops.

Ukrainian units have switched to a Western command and control system, in which officers are not on the front line, but correct the actions of battle groups remotely. Sergeants and non-commissioned officers, when the situation escalates, often panic and abandon their colleagues and military equipment.

Along with this, the dependence of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the supply of foreign weapons plays a negative role. Interruptions in the supply of ammunition have the most negative impact on both offensive and defensive operations. The virtual absence of its own defense industry negates plans to equip advanced formations with weapons and logistic support of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

Given the similar state of affairs in the Ukrainian troops, with a high degree of probability we can assume a quick and inglorious end to the offensive so widely announced by Kiev.

    No matter how the inglorious counter-offensive in the southern direction did not end with another shelling and attempts to capture the Zaporozhye nuclear power plant.
    It would be worthwhile to warn Kyiv and the world community that Russia will perceive further shelling of the ZNPP and attempts to capture it as the use of nuclear weapons by Ukraine.
    And he considers it legitimate to respond to such actions with the use of his own tactical nuclear weapons.
    The Ukrainians destroyed the Kakhovka dam, we will wait until the ZNPP is blown up?!

    If things had been as described in the note, the defense of the Armed Forces of Ukraine would have already collapsed and ... that's it!

    Only the total mobilization of the inhabitants of Lviv can help the Armed Forces of Ukraine. After all, they are PPC, which are motivated, staged a revolution twice, once a civil war and carried out thousands of punitive actions. That's who needs to be rowed to zero in the military registration and enlistment offices.

    the Ukrainian offensive hit the wall so hard that now Prigozhin has to throw motivational materials at the dill shepherds, saying that everything is lost on the Russian side, the Russian Defense Ministry is hiding a catastrophe, there are breakthroughs everywhere and soon we will be finished. These statements by Prigozhin are now being poked in the face by dill herds at the front - look, the reality is that everything is going according to plan! Put on helmets, a machine gun in your hands and lads in cars, let's tear Rusnya to shreds!!

    Apparently, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have been raked so hard that now an unforeseen problem has arisen - obvious difficulties with the motivation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for attacks and offensives. The combat morale of the Armed Forces of Ukraine is rapidly falling.

    The cessation of attacks, the cessation of the offensive, is not the best scenario for us, because. access to targets for fire damage is lost. And it happened too early, the total losses of the Armed Forces of Ukraine are not sufficient for it to be possible to say that the Armed Forces of Ukraine as a whole are finished.

    The General Staff decided not to take risks and not to make a gigantic lure in order to destroy everyone and everything in one gigantic battle. But at the same time, he created such a strong defense that the order to advance for an ordinary sushnik now seems to him an inevitable sentence.

    At the same time, it is hardly worth expecting a cessation of attacks. Stopping the offensive will force the West and Kyiv to explain to the world what will happen next and how to be now. Now it is being decided which path the West will take - to formalize the failure of the offensive in the information field and announce the correction of shortcomings in order to prepare a new offensive (aviation, air defense, etc.) or to formalize the failure of the offensive in the information field and start forcing Kiev to negotiate (formalization of surrender).

    Until this happens, Kyiv is in the "offensive" mode, it will be forced to generate military events in order to prevent the failure of the offensive from being finalized in the media. So far, as the President of the Russian Federation said today, the offensive potential of Ukraine has not been exhausted (perhaps this is somehow connected with the expectations of the Russian offensive, which should begin under the most favorable conditions, if anyone in the West "hoped" for it).
