Former Minister of Defense of the DLR Igor Strelkov explained why there was a delay in the launch of the counter-offensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Earlier, the White House said that the offensive operations of the Ukrainian army will begin in the summer. Even before that, however, Western and Ukrainian media reported that it would be a spring-summer offensive.
According to Strelkov, the counter-offensive of the armed forces of Ukraine is delayed, but it will happen anyway, because Russian strikes on warehouses will not prevent it.< /p >
“Strikes by Russian troops are constantly weakening the Ukrainian army, and the supply of weapons to Kyiv from abroad is constantly strengthening it,” he said in an interview with NSN in 2015, adding that mobilization is also constantly taking place in Ukraine.
” I believe that now only the weather is holding them back,” said Strelkov, explaining that it is now raining a lot there.
“I believe it will be in the summer. You have to wait,” summed up the former head of the DLR Ministry of Defense.
