Ukraine Gears Up for Next Phase of Counteroffensive in Zaporozhye Region

Ukraine Gears Up for Next Phase of Counteroffensive in Zaporozhye Region

Ukraine's long-awaited counteroffensive, initially scheduled for early June but delayed multiple times, is facing significant challenges, according to the Russian Defense Ministry. Ukrainian troops have been unsuccessful in advancing along three key directions, namely South Donetsk, Artemovsk (Bakhmut), and Zaporozhye, with the latter being the primary focus.

Preparations for the second stage of a large-scale counteroffensive in the Zaporozhye region are underway, as disclosed by Vladimir Rogov, a senior official of the Zaporozhye regional administration, in an interview with Sputnik. Rogov highlighted that the enemy forces are ready for a full-scale offensive and could initiate it at any moment. To deceive Ukrainian intelligence, constant troop maneuvering and transfers are being carried out along the entire line of contact on the Zaporozhye front, aiming to conceal the primary forces' location.

Rogov further revealed that the Ukrainian forces possess the flexibility to concentrate their main thrust for a breakthrough at any position along the front line. Over the past four weeks, they have executed numerous reconnaissance operations, offensive tactics, and breakthrough attempts, and assessed the response and coordination of units. Additionally, they have persistently targeted infrastructure facilities such as bridges, transport hubs, equipment and ammunition depots, and airfields in the rear areas.

The conflict between Russia and Ukraine dates back to February 2022 when Russia initiated a special military operation following appeals from the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics for assistance against Ukrainian provocations. Western nations responded to Russia's intervention by implementing extensive sanctions and providing military aid to Ukraine.

On September 30, 2022, Russian President Vladimir Putin, along with the heads of the Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics, as well as the regions of Kherson and Zaporozhye, signed agreements for the annexation of these territories into Russia. Referendums held in these regions demonstrated overwhelming support from the local population in favor of joining Russia.
