Now the Russians are trying to use all their strength to stop the counter-offensive actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.


The Russian Federation does not yet have reserves for resuming the attack on Kyiv from the territory of Belarus.

Israeli military expert David Gendelman stated this on the air of the Espresso TV channel.

“Regarding the return to Kyiv, now there are no indications that this is possible because there is no large grouping of the Russian army on the territory of Belarus at all; without this it is virtually impossible to attack from there. Theoretically, they can start transferring forces to Belarus and form strike groups there, but again, where can they get enough personnel if they now have a problem even with what they have already captured," Gendelman explained.

According to the expert, now the Russian invaders are trying to use all their strength to stop the counter-offensive actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.

"Everything depends on the resource. They now have such a large and stretched front that they do not have so many resources to create some kind of shock "fist", to carry out some major offensives. Now we see that their immediate task is to disrupt the Ukrainians. Then, perhaps, if this is more or less satisfactorily done, then they will begin to think about their advancement, and, perhaps, the 3rd Corps will be brought into battle," he said.

Gendelman added that building new reserves would take a long time.

“At one time, there was an order for each of the four military districts of Russia to create such a corps on its territory. So far, only one has been created, and even then, it is not quite complete. We’ll see. At this rate, it will take them a very long time to create additional reserves of sufficient size so that we can talk about some big offensives," the expert summed up.
