Ukrainian army may launch counteroffensive in spring

Feb 27, 2023

In the spring of this year, the Ukrainian army will be ready to launch a counteroffensive, with one of its strategic goals being an attempt to "drive a wedge into the Russian front in the south."


Vadym Skibitskyi, a representative of Ukraine's military intelligence, said this in a commentary to DW.

Thus, the Armed Forces will be ready to launch an offensive in the spring, and one of the strategic goals will be an attempt to "drive a wedge into the Russian front in the south - between Crimea and the Russian mainland."

Skibitsky added that the exact moment depends on a number of factors, including the supply of Western weapons.

The deputy head of the GUR also did not rule out that Ukraine would strike at weapons depots in Russia, particularly in the Belgorod region, as it is from there that attacks on Ukraine are launched, so this poses a threat, in particular, to Kharkiv.

The purpose of the counteroffensive is to liberate all the occupied territories of Ukraine, including Crimea. We will stop only when we restore the country to its 1991 borders," emphasized Skibitsky.
