Ukrainian Armed Forces soldiers show captured position of Russians

Jun 16, 2023

Western military bloggers have posted a map with a plan for a counteroffensive by the Armed Forces of Ukraine on Twitter. This was reported by the Donbas Operative Telegram channel, giving a brief description: breakthrough of the defense, liberation of Berdiansk, access to the Azov Sea, cutting the land corridor to Crimea.


This assessment already makes me smile, because the last three points are actually synonymous, as Berdiansk is located on the shores of the Azov Sea. But it is not clear from the map how to get from the current front line to the city, which is almost a hundred kilometers away.

It is very easy to draw a huge territory with arrows and difficult to take it back from the enemy, who is well fortified there.

It is also worth noting that the Ukrainian Armed Forces counteroffensive (blue arrows) is drawn exclusively in the Zaporizhzhia region. At the same time, no less heavy fighting is taking place in the neighboring Donetsk region in June. So, in general, the map looks questionable.

Meanwhile, the same "Donbas Operative" group published the following video with a commentary: "Ukrainian Armed Forces occupied the trenches of the Katsaps...". At the same time, there are two corpses of the invaders in the dugout. It is not specified in which direction the enemy positions were captured.
