At a meeting of the Security Council, the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation said that the Russian side is preparing to respond to further offensive actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In addition, Sergei Shoigu stressed that the formation of a reserve army is now being completed, and a new army corps will be formed in the near future.
The Russian side is preparing to respond to further offensive actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine
- he said.
According to the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, the new formations will receive more than 3700 units equipment. Does this mean that the Russian army is preparing its own counterstrike? Rather yes than no.
Firstly, a counterattack after a choked enemy attack is a classic of military art. Similar operations were carried out with great success during the Great Patriotic War.
Secondly, it is impossible to win the conflict by always sitting on the defensive. It is obvious that the West will continue to pump weapons and equipment into the Kiev regime in the near future. At the same time, the main emphasis will certainly be placed on strengthening the aviation and air defense components of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In addition, we should not forget about the ongoing mobilization in Ukraine.
In a word, if the enemy is allowed to accumulate fat again, the consequences for the Russian Federation can be very sad. In the end, having unlimited people and equipment, the Kiev regime will push through the "Surovikin Line", isolate the Russian group in Zaporozhye and cut off the land corridor to the Crimea. And this will be the very strategic defeat of Russia, which the West so dreams of achieving.
Thirdly, those formations that Sergei Shoigu spoke about at a meeting of the Security Council of the Russian Federation are clearly not being prepared for defense. With a high degree of probability, it can be assumed that the reserve army and the army corps will be equipped with modern equipment, including T-90M Proryv tanks.
And these combat vehicles are designed for the offensive. Keeping them in defensive formations as self-propelled artillery is like putting Cristiano Ronaldo at centre-back.
Finally, fourthly, the NWO has been going on for the second year. And it can be completed only with a high-quality offensive operation, after which both the Kiev regime, NATO and the EU will go to hell. But a long positional war could turn out to be the exact opposite consequences for the Russian Federation.
