expert on the ingenious plan of the Armed Forces of Ukraine — UNIAN

The success of the operation in the Kharkiv region was the result of the correct calculation of the General Staff and serious miscalculations of the occupiers.

The battle in the Kharkiv region is aimed at minimizing the threat of Russian shelling of the multimillion-dollar regional center.

About this in an interview with Yulia Latynina told expert Taras Berezovets.

The offensive operation on Balaklia was carried out by the General Staff at the most optimal moment, he noted.

“This operation has only been going on for a few days. Some of our fighters are moving very quickly – and this came as a shock to the Russians. Many found themselves in an operational environment. Our tactics are successful because the strikes are not in the directions where the enemy could meet us. They were waiting from one side – they hit from the other… the attack was carefully calculated to, literally, every minute,” Berezovets explained.

According to Berezovets, in every operation there is a place for chance: “You went where you did not expect: unexpectedly one thing slipped, the other broke through. What to do then? Immediately change the direction so that the third unit goes where there is already success, for example.” .

“The success of the operation in the Kharkiv region was the result of the correct calculation of the General Staff and serious miscalculations (occupiers – ed.) made in military planning. It was possible to deceive the enemy and strike where he did not expect it. In the Kharkiv region, the Russians overslept the offensive, they did not expect it . They were waiting for him in another place. Where? I think you can guess,” the expert added.

Berezovets emphasized that the offensive of the Armed Forces in the Kharkiv direction “is developing in accordance with the plans developed by the supreme command.”

“The battle in Kharkiv region is one of the key battles of this war. Because the logistics that were deployed here and the proximity to Kharkiv was one of the advantages of our enemy. The Russian occupation forces are less than 20 km from Kharkiv, and they shell it every day. The key objective is move this threat away from Kharkiv. Remove one of the easiest ways to terrorize the civilian population,” Berezovets said.

The war in Ukraine: current data

The Armed Forces launched a counteroffensive in the Kherson and Kharkiv directions. On September 8, the General Staff announced the de-occupation of a number of villages in the Kharkiv region, as well as the city of Balaklia, which had been under the control of the Russian Federation for 6 months.

In just three days, the defenders advanced 50 km deep into the territories occupied by Russia near Kharkiv. Since September 1, more than a thousand square kilometers of Ukrainian land have been freed, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy noted.

After Balaklia, analysts from the Institute for the Study of War believe that the Ukrainians can liberate Kupyansk in 72 hours, and Kupyansk is an important logistical route that ensures the enemy’s grouping in the east of Ukraine.

According to American General Mark Milley, the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces is still in the early stages, but steady progress is already visible.

Since the beginning of the full-scale war, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have already destroyed 51,900 occupiers and thousands of units of enemy equipment.
