The country’s top ground forces commander, Col. Gen. Oleksandr Cyraskyi, has threatened that Ukrainian troops will soon launch a long-awaited counteroffensive.
In a message on the messaging platform Telegram, Sirasky said, “In the long-running and bloody battle for Bakhmut, the group of Russian mercenaries is now trying to take control of Bakhmut. They also suffered heavy losses. Gradually, their attack intensity is also decreasing. We will take advantage of this opportunity very soon. Earlier we did the same in Kyiv, Kharkiv, Balaklia and Kupyansk.
