NY POST: Ukraine plans counter-offensive as Russian troops ‘losing steam’ in Bakhmut
The Ukrainian military will launch a highly anticipated counter-attack “very soon,” one of the top commanders said Thursday — as Russia loses momentum in Bakhmut.
Oleksandr Syrskyi, commander of the Ukrainian ground forces, indicated a counter-offensive would soon strike the fatigued Russian forces in Bakhmut.
Russia’s Wagner Group mercenaries are “losing considerable strength and are running out of steam,” Syrskyi said on social media.
“Very soon, we will take advantage of this opportunity, as we did in the past near Kyiv, Kharkiv, Balakliya and Kupiansk,” he said.
Last year, Ukraine launched counter-offensives in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Kalakliya and Kupiansk that ended up being major turning points in the war and getting Ukraine back significant land.
Despite their forces dwindling, Russia has not seemed to have been deterred, Syrskyi noted.
“The aggressor does not give up hope at any price to take Bakhmut, regardless of the losses in manpower or equipment,” he said.
Syrskyi stated that even as Ukrainian troops are under constant fire from Russian artillery, they continue to demonstrate “superman resilience, courage and bravery,” Ukrainian newspaper Ukrainska Pravda reported. --->READ MORE HERE
