The Russian occupiers are constantly attacking the positions of the Ukrainian defenders in the area.
As of today, the most threatening direction in Ukraine is Izyumsky. The Russian occupiers are constantly attacking the positions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this area and are concentrating the most forces there.
This was stated by military expert Oleg Zhdanov, informs the site “Today“.
Now there are about 20-25 battalion-tactical groups of invaders in the Izyum direction. At the same time, the Ukrainian General Staff decided to launch a counterattack in order to “reduce the offensive pace, and not wait until our troops are exhausted by the constant attacks of the occupiers.”
“There is a need for this, because this direction is the most threatening of all. This direction is the most numerous, the largest number of Russian troops is concentrated on it,” the expert notes.
Zhdanov predicts a full-fledged counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in this direction only in June.
