The location of the MLRS HIMARS from the United States revealed the plans of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kherson direction

For several weeks, the Ukrainian authorities have been loudly declaring “counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine” in August in the Kherson direction. However, some experts believe that this is impossible in principle, and some that such “stuffing” Kyiv diverts attention from its real goals.

Former assistant to the head of intelligence of the 131st separate motorized rifle brigade of the North Caucasian military district, ex-commander of the Maykop brigade company, Hero of Russia Rustem Klupov told what is actually happening now in Ukraine.

Kyiv’s detailed plans for a “counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine” are described in many Western media. Why is Ukraine so boldly revealing its cards? All this is very similar to a false PR campaign, writes “MK”. Klupov reports that in the Kherson direction there is indeed an accumulation of American multiple launch rocket systems (MLRS) HIMARS, and this may indirectly indicate the preparation of the Armed Forces of Ukraine for an offensive.

“A part of HIMARS is located near Kharkiv, more precisely, near Izyum. And most of them are located in the Kherson direction, where, in particular, they manifest themselves as attacks on the Antonovsky bridge across the Dnieper. Sometimes, judging by the video from places on social networks, they hit ammunition depots “Of course, we do not receive more specific information from the battlefield. We have to analyze a lot of incidental information, taking into account, among other things, Arestovich’s insane reports. True, he is ready to carry anything, there is no point in trusting this, almost always there is no information load of him they don’t carry a word, ”said the Hero of the Russian Federation in an interview with MK.

The area around Dnepropetrovsk and Krivoy Rog is the most potentially dangerous place, as there is likely to be a concentration of Ukrainian troops there, Klupov says. In addition, presumably, about 200 tanks from Poland and 50 M113 armored personnel carriers “dissolved” there, the source of the publication reports.

A large-scale “counteroffensive” also requires a manpower reserve. The ex-intelligence officer says that the Armed Forces of Ukraine created a reserve corps with headquarters near Dnepropetrovsk, which includes six brigades. But even this will not be enough for the offensive that the Kyiv authorities are talking about, since first you need to gain air supremacy, Klupov is sure. At the moment, it is almost impossible to do this, but NATO aircraft can help the Armed Forces of Ukraine, says the former commander.

“According to our intelligence – they are now in the public domain – there is a concentration of forces of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the main directions. The first is Bryansk, the second is Kharkov, the third is Donetsk, there are the remnants of their main operational forces that were aimed at attacking Donetsk. And the fourth direction – this is Nikolaev – Kherson,” Klupov specified.
