Skibitsky: Russia currently doesn't have enough reserves to simultaneously carry out powerful strategic offensive operations
Today, the ground component, the airborne component of the Russian Armed Forces, is not capable of conducting strategic offensive operations, but can carry out assault tactical actions, Deputy Head of the Main Intelligence Agency of the Ministry of Defense of Ukraine Vadym Skibitsky said.
As part of a discussion program organized by the Deciding Your Tomorrow project of the Victor Pinchuk Foundation in Davos, Skibitsky said mobilization measures on the territory of Russia continue, the enemy manages to replenish and renew the losses that Ukrainian forces inflict on them every day.
"But the reserve that they have today is not enough to simultaneously carry out powerful strategic offensive operations – at least two or three directions that Putin is talking about today, which scares the whole of Europe and the European community about the opening of a second front, an offensive and etc. Today, the ground component, the airborne component of the Russian Armed Forces, is not capable of conducting strategic offensive operations. Assault tactical actions – yes, and we see this, they will continue, but strategic offensive operations without powerful strategic reserves – this can be done impossible," Skibitsky said.
