«Their defense is quite weak»: an American general told about the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces
Petraeus emphasizes that the Armed Forces are well disciplined.
The former director of the Central Intelligence Agency, General David Petraeus, believes that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are sufficiently prepared to carry out a successful counteroffensive.
He said this during the 15th Kyiv Security Forum, «New Voice« reports.
He emphasizes that the Armed Forces are well disciplined, have effective command and control, and are equipped with modern weapons. What the occupiers cannot boast about. Petraeus emphasizes that the Russian army suffered huge losses during the war and did not have a normal opportunity to re-equip.
«Now the war is in a transition period. Russia’s winter offensive did not achieve its goal. They wanted to capture the entire territory of Donetsk and Luhansk regions. They managed to capture only part of Bakhmut. Now they are losing flanks there. Their defense is quite weak,» the American general adds.
He also mentioned the military failures of the Russian Federation near Kyiv, Kharkiv and Kherson. At the same time, he emphasized that the Russians achieved only modest goals that they set for themselves for the winter campaign.
«Instead, the Ukrainian army is forming additional brigades... The armored units mainly have Western weapons. And we all wanted and made efforts to have these weapons for counteroffensives,» David Petraeus emphasizes.
