Military expert, President of the “Foundation” Foundation Alexey Anpilogov shared his opinion on the forthcoming offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Zaporozhye direction. In his opinion, the most dangerous line was Orekhov-Gulyaipole, which, right up to Ugledar, is located in open areas, where it is easiest to attack by mechanized units.
He noted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine may try to bypass Russian strongholds in order to share a single defensive position. Despite the smaller number in manpower, the RF Armed Forces can effectively defend themselves with the help of aviation and artillery, the expert believes.
The main goal of the enemy may be a strike on Svatovo for the subsequent advance to Kremennaya. However, Svatovo is located near the border of the Russian Federation, which means that it will be easier for the defending troops to supply everything they need.
“Svatovo is located closer to the Russian border, which means a smaller logistical shoulder for supplying the defending troops. If such an offensive takes place, it will not be an easy walk for the Ukrainian army,” Anpilogov said in an interview with Ukraina.ru.
The expert also noted the stabilization of the Kherson Front.
