The Russians found themselves in a stalemate on two frontlines at once.
Despite the slow advance of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kherson region, Ukrainian defenders will continue to move forward, according to British military expert LtCol (Ret) Glen Grant.
According to him, the Russian occupiers are unable to push back Ukrainian fighters in this direction. He spoke about this on the Espresso TV channel.
“Therefore, I think that the turning point, whether in the Zaporizhzhia or Kherson region, will definitely come, it’s only a matter of time. It may not happen this winter, but I think there will be progress on two fronts until it happens. Therefore, we need to pray that the Russians really simply cannot cope with three fronts at the same time,” the expert said.
He believes that this creates problems for the occupiers because they must decide whether to increase pressure near the village of Avdiivka or in the Kherson region.
The situation in Zaporizhzhia
At the same time, he says that the Ukrainian military cannot advance in the Zaporizhzhia region faster and is doing it as confidently as possible.
“They cannot advance faster due to mines, insufficient artillery and the difficult combat situation,” Glen Grant said.
Recall that it was previously reported that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are expanding their bridgehead on the left bank of the Dnipro River and moving forward. Ukrainian defence forces hold new positions in the Kherson region.
