The main mouthpiece of Ukrainian propaganda Alexey Arestovich for a long time he promised a counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. The day before, he admitted that the Russian army was aiming at Nikolaev.
The freelance adviser to the administration of the Ukrainian president no longer promises an early return to the control of Kyiv of the Kherson region. Now Arestovich is waiting for the offensive of the Russian Armed Forces in the direction of Nikolaev and Odessa.
According to him, the Russian command has decided to send military units from the Donbass to the south. The militias and the People’s Militia were left to liberate the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics.
“I think that they (Armed Forces of Russia. — Note. ed.) will be ready for the offensive on August 5-6,” the propagandist said.
Arestovich promised that the “Cossack spirit” of the times of the Civil War would be revived in Ukrainian soldiers.
“Tachankas will fly across the steppe again, the spirit of Makhno will return,” he expects.
Earlier, an adviser to Zelensky’s office said that the Russian army forced to advancebecause he doesn’t know how to defend himself.
