General Staff: The Kremlin realizes that it is impossible to achieve victory in the war in the short term
“The Kremlin realizes that it is impossible to achieve victory in the war in the short term, therefore it seeks to turn the conflict into a long-term armed confrontation aimed at exhausting Ukraine and our partners,” said the Deputy Chief of the Main Operations Department of the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, Brigadier General Oleksii Hromov. “To force our country to negotiate, as well as to create a strategic pause for the restoration and accumulation of its forces, the enemy does not weaken the psychological and economic pressure on our country, first of all by launching massive missile and artillery strikes on the energy infrastructure of Ukraine.”
In view of the successes of our troops in the Kherson and Kharkiv directions, the military and political leadership of the Russian Federation was forced to make appropriate changes in its operational plans for the capture of Ukraine.
“In the near future, the enemy’s main efforts will be focused on the strategic task of establishing full control over the Donetsk and Luhansk regions of Ukraine.”
According to Oleksii Hromov, to ensure a quantitative advantage in weapons and military equipment on the battlefield, the Kremlin increases the indicators of its own production of equipment, in particular, due to a decrease in the quality of products, and also activates the conclusion of contracts with other countries on their supply.
