Russia makes new stand after being thrown back by rapid Ukrainian offensive

The rapid Ukrainian offensive in Kharkiv, east Ukraine had thrown the Russians off their feet and forced them to dig somewhere.

We can now see the way.

They are making a stand at Svatove east of the Oskil River.

They consider this crucial because Svatove is the only reliable supply route from Belgorod, Russia to their forces further south.

The Ukrainians, however, are in a position now to attack the P66 highway which runs south from Svatove toward Kremenna on the northern border of the Donbas.

The Russians are trying to regain their positions in Kremenna. If they fail, Lysychansk or Severodonetsk will take over. – could be surrounded by the north.

The next phase of the battle for the northeast is now underway.

The battle for Kherson in the southwest continues.

Kherson is an important strategic objective, and Russian troops are working hard to keep it.

The Ukrainians may be trying to bring Russian troops from the region into Kiev. They will probably be beaten down.

Russia responded to these setbacks by launching more rocket strikes against infrastructure and civilian targets.

Attacks on the dam and hydroelectric plant at Kryvyi Rikh were repeated. This is a Russian military strategy.

The Inhulets River is flooded by the breaking of the dam, which causes some pontoon bridges to collapse that the Ukrainians depend upon now that they have crossed the Inhulets.

The dam has been repaired quickly, the pontoon bridges have been replaced and Russian attacks against the dam will likely continue.

It’s all part of the battle for logistics. Without it, frontline battles will always fail.

Russia will do all it can to end the Ukraine war “as soon as possible”, Vladimir Putin stated

Some of the most dramatic headline numbers in logistics and support are quite impressive.

The Russians lost over 6,000 pieces of important equipment, while the Ukrainians lost only 25%.

These large Russian losses are nevertheless small relative to the equipment that is available. Ukrainian losses, however, are much larger than what they can actually throw at the battle.

These two issues are fundamental.

One is the fact that Ukraine will continue to need Western military equipment as long as it continues fighting this war.

Two, this means that we are witnessing the return to industrial-scale warfare in Europe – for only a few generations.
