don't do it, kid.....

Ukraine is ready to launch its long-awaited offensive, President Vladimir Zelensky told the Wall Street Journal (WSJ) in an interview published on Saturday. He did not reveal the exact date, but said Kiev can no longer “wait for months.” 

The operation is likely to inflict heavy losses on Ukrainian troops, and might not go exactly as planned, Zelensky admitted, adding that Russia's air superiority would inevitably mean Kiev's forces will be exposed to enemy fire.

“I don’t know how long it will take,” Zelensky said, commenting on the operation’s potential timeframe. He added that “it can go a variety of ways, completely different.”

The president admitted that the military equipment and weapons supplied to Ukraine by its Western backers are still not enough. “We would like to have certain things, but we can’t wait for months,” he said.

Zelensky also highlighted the need for stronger air defences, and claimed that the US-made Patriot systems are virtually the only ones in the world capable of countering certain Russian missile types.

He claimed Ukraine would need as many as 50 Patriot batteries to ensure sufficient air defenses. The lack of such protection means “a large number of soldiers will die,” during the offensive, he added.

In May, Kiev claimed that its forces had managed to intercept a Russian hypersonic Kinzhal missile, using a Patriot air defense system. Moscow denied the claim, and accused Ukraine of routinely exaggerating the effectiveness of its air defenses.

Ukraine has long been discussing a counteroffensive against Russia to reclaim territories that Kiev considers as its own. It has postponed the operation several times, citing a lack of ammunition, weapons, and even adverse weather conditions. Back in mid-May Zelensky claimed Kiev was ready to launch the offensive, while maintaining it needed more Western weapons.

Ukrainian troops have suffered massive casualties since the start of the conflict, according to various estimates. A Pentagon document leaked earlier this year and cited by The Washington Post said that between 124,000 and 131,000 Ukrainian soldiers had been killed or wounded since the start of the hostilities.

Ukrainian Defense Minister Aleksey Reznikov has rejected this assessment, saying the number of his troops killed in the conflict was less than the death toll from the earthquakes that hit Türkiye and Syria in February. The combined estimated fatalities in the two countries amounted to more than 55,000. Reznikov later apologized for the comparison, deemed insensitive by some people in the affected areas.

In May, Russian Defense Minister Sergey Shoigu said the Ukrainian armed forces had sustained over 15,000 battlefield casualties in April alone. Ukrainian Brigadier General Sergey Melnik, deputy commander of the Ukrainian force grouping stationed in the northeastern Kharkov Region, admitted to Spanish newspaper El Pais in April that Ukraine had already lost most of its experienced troops to deaths and injuries. “The problem is that we have a lack of people and equipment,” he said at the time, adding that Kiev had to rely on “people without military experience.”

blinken wants more blood......

US Secretary of State Antony Blinken has argued that a ceasefire in Ukraine that might benefit Russia would not create a lasting peace. 

In a speech at Helsinki City Hall in Finland on Friday, Blinken reiterated Washington’s support for Kiev and outlined his vision of what would bring an end to the fighting between Russia and Ukraine. 

“Now, over the coming weeks and months, some countries will call for a ceasefire. And on the surface, that sounds sensible – attractive, even. After all, who doesn’t want warring parties to lay down their arms? Who doesn’t want the killing to stop?” Blinken said.

He added that “a ceasefire that simply freezes current lines in place” would allow Russia to “consolidate” control over territory and “re-attack,” arguing “that is not a just and lasting peace. It’s a Potemkin peace.” Blinken was referring to the type of window-dressing reportedly practiced by Russian statesman Grigory Potemkin while seeking to impress Catherine the Great. 

“It would reward the aggressor and punish the victim,” Blinken said. Instead, the diplomat argued that a potential deal must ensure Ukraine’s “sovereignty, territorial integrity, and independence” and that it would require Kiev’s “full participation and assent.” He also insisted that Russia must pay “its share” in Ukraine’s post-conflict recovery.

he did it.....

MOSCOW (Sputnik) - The Ukrainian armed forces launched a large-scale offensive in five sectors of the South Donetsk direction, Russian Defense Ministry spokesman Lt. Gen. Igor Konashenkov said.

"On the morning of June 4, the enemy launched a large-scale offensive in five sectors of the front in the South Donetsk direction by introducing into battle the 23rd and 31st mechanized brigades from the strategic reserves of the armed forces of Ukraine with the support of other military units and divisions," Konashenkov said.

He noted that in total Kiev involved six mechanized and two tank battalions in order to break through the defense lines of the Russian armed forces.

"The enemy did not achieve [their] tasks," Konashenkov added.

The losses of the Ukrainian armed forces in the South Donetsk direction after the Russian military repulsed a large-scale offensive amounted to more than 250 soldiers, 16 tanks, three infantry fighting vehicles and 21 armored fighting vehicles, Konashenkov said.

"As a result of the skillful and competent actions of the ‘Eastern’ group of the [Russian armed] forces, the losses of the Ukrainian armed forces amounted to more than 250 personnel, 16 tanks, three infantry fighting vehicles, 21 armored fighting vehicles," Konashenkov stated .

Произошедшее не осталось без внимания российских военных аналитиков. Например, эксперт Александр Бартош сообщил газете ВЗГЛЯД, что подобные неудачи обязательно повлияют на атакующий потенциал украинских войск, причем в негативном ключе, ведь такие чувствительные потери всегда имеют последствия. Кроме того, россияне уничтожили значительное количество техники врага, на которую делалась большая ставка Киевом и лично президентом Зеленским. Это прямо говорит о некачественной подготовке ВСУ к наступлению.

Этот факт непременно окажет негативное воздействие на моральное состояние украинских солдат и ударит по позициям Зеленского. Более того, именно Вашингтон требовал от ВСУ скорейшего перехода в атаку


– уточнил он.

Эксперт связал огромные ежесуточные потери ВСУ с бесцеремонным давлением Запада, в особенности США, на руководство Украины. Вашингтон так торопился, что фактически приказал Киеву «разбить о русскую стену» недавно укомплектованные бригады, хотя даже западные разведслужбы предупреждали о неготовности ВСУ.

Мы, конечно, ожидали подобных выпадов, поэтому встретили ВСУ в полной боеготовности


– добавил Бартош.

Эксперт считает, что российским командованием была выбрана правильная стратегическая линия и предприняты нужные тактические ходы на действия противника. Логистика и снабжение подразделений ВС РФ улучшились, а недавняя серия разрушительных ударов по военной инфраструктуре Украины еще больше навредила противнику.

Таким образом, наступление ВСУ, скорее всего, в средней перспективе выдохнется. Оно не окажет существенного влияния на текущее положение дел на фронте, однако небольшие тактические изменения на поле боя будут


– подытожил Бартош.
