The former adviser to the head of the OP pointed out an important fact, without which a sea of blood will be shed on the battlefield.
Former adviser to the head of the President’s Office Oleksiy Arestovich predicted “fatal” losses for the Armed Forces of Ukraine if the West does not support the counter-offensive of Ukrainian forces with long-range missiles.
He stated this on the air of the LRT Television channel, pointing out that without appropriate assistance, a “sea of blood” would be shed on the battlefield.
“If we have such means, we will be able to successfully attack even with not very trained troops. Otherwise, even trained infantry will shed a sea of blood,” he said.
Arestovich noted that the partners are not yet discussing the supply of long-range weapons to Ukraine, although they are the “key” ones. Now other decisions are on the agenda, which will be known in more detail at the July NATO summit in Vilnius.
“In all likelihood, the upcoming counter-offensive will not be the last, so we will need help for the next one,” he added.
President Zelensky urged partners to provide more weapons
Recall that President Volodymyr Zelenskyy recently commented on the topic of the upcoming counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
He stated that the key to the success of the Ukrainian army on the battlefield is more weapons from the West. It is for this reason that the fighters of the Armed Forces of Ukraine cannot move into battle. The leader of the country noted that every day the enemy uses three times more ammunition than Ukraine – this difference should be reduced as much as possible.
Recall that at the moment the Armed Forces of Ukraine are waiting for the delivery of long-range American ATACMC missiles – they are capable of delivering strikes with a range of 300 kilometers. With their help, the Ukrainian army will be able to shoot at the rear of the Russians.
