Currently, fighting is also taking place around Bakhmut, but the intensity of combat operations has increased strongly, especially in the Zaporizhzhia region.
Axar.az reports that this was said by the head of the Intelligence Center of the Estonian Defense Forces, Colonel Margo Grosberg, while commenting on what happened on the Ukrainian front.
According to Grosberg, the main blow in the counter-attack has not yet been delivered, instead, the search for possible gaps that can break through the defence is going on:
"But we may not see a large-scale and huge attack like the one in Kharkiv last fall. The Russian armed forces had nine months to prepare. It may take a long time to find a gap for this. At the same time, the Ukrainian army should strengthen its flanks."
The intelligence officer is not in a hurry to claim that a real counter-offensive would be of the same scale and effectiveness as, for example, the Kharkiv operation:
"This offensive operation will undoubtedly be more complex, more multifaceted than the one in the direction of Kharkiv in the fall. Everything depends on where the turning point is. I think there are opportunities from all sides."
