If your tax money is well spent, it will be well spent
Of course you’ve already seen our coverage of Day 1, Day 2, Day 5, Day 6, Day 7 and Day 8 of the Ukrainian Counterattack, but the above is an excellent, well-balanced weekly summary by NOS. Does this discovery hurt because MSM!!! Then this is your problem, good luck with it. Bottom line: Ukrainian expeditionary deployment of only three of the twelve armored brigades results in such modest successes as the capture of small, strategically insignificant villages such as Makarivka (maps) and Storozhev (maps(NW of the main potential intermediate destination Tokmak)maps). NOS:Ukrainian success is certainly there, but if we zoom out, we can only conclude that those successes have been small so far.And with all the available information, this is the only correct conclusion.
But, while Ukraine spent months preparing for this offensive, the Russians had been hiding behind two lines for months. In any case, the Ukrainian attempt to achieve a breakthrough, certainly without an air force worthy of NATO, will become a bloodbath in which even the most modern Western weapons will die every now and then. This is called war. The main objective of the breakthrough is to reach the Sea of Azov, thus cutting off Russian supplies to Crimea and Kherson Oblast.
The main objective of the main offensive: to cut off the supply of the RU in the Crimea and Kherson Oblast
