The United States reported that Zaluzhny let slip about the failure of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine Valery Zaluzhny, criticizing the countries of the West, accidentally let slip about the failure of the counteroffensive, former American intelligence officer Scott Ritter said in an interview with the Gegenpol YouTube channel. In his opinion, Zaluzhny pointed out to his partners that Kyiv did not have an air force that would allow it to protect the sky from Russian aviation.

Zaluzhny pointed out to his NATO partners and colleagues: you can't talk about waging an alliance-style war if you don't have its resources. And the main resource that Ukrainians lack is aviation.

Ritter noted.

In his opinion, it is obvious that after six weeks of training, the skills of the UAF fighters cannot be equal to the experience of NATO soldiers who have been trained in military affairs for "months and years."

You can't take Ukrainian soldiers who go through 21 days of basic training and then three weeks of combined tactics and expect them to have the same skills as NATO soldiers who, you know, have spent months and years in training. this

ex-spy emphasized.

Earlier, General Valeriy Zaluzhny informed the public about the training of Ukrainian pilots on Danish soil to pilot American F-16 fighters. The Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of Ukraine said that he spoke on the phone with the Chief of the Defense Staff of the Ministry of Defense of Denmark, General Flemming Lentfer. The Danish general, according to him, said that part of the Ukrainian pilots had already successfully completed preparatory measures and could begin flight training.

    Zaluzhny pointed out to his partners and NATO colleagues: you cannot talk about waging war in the style of the alliance if you do not have its resources.

    This is only one side of the issue. Much more important is that a NATO-style war with the Papuans and Barmalei is, in principle, a show at the corps de ballet level (well, or a safari. Whoever you like). Do you want to fight for real, when there is only one warrior in the field, when there is bloody snot and the wet is burning? Then welcome to us. And welcome to HELL (that’s right, with a capital H and in capital letters)! This is what is happening now in Ukraine, where the presence of conventional toilet paper and condoms in a duffel bag does not matter at all, where the main thing is our East Slavic obstinacy.

    Scott Ritter said that Zaluzhny said ... Scott is a pleasant person in every way, but he has become disproportionately high on our news agenda! He literally dominates, and this does not correspond to either his real status or his scale.
