“Moscow is in shock”: American general on the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

«Moscow in shock»: American general about UAF counteroffensive

The Kremlin is shocked by the crushing defeat of its troops in the Kharkov region. This was stated in an interview with DW by former Commander-in-Chief of the US Army in Europe, retired Lieutenant General Ben Hodges.

According to him, several factors contributed to the successful counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine. In particular, the Russian occupation troops are bled white, the logistics are depleted, a significant part of the officer corps is liquidated, they have no desire to fight.

The second factor is Western military assistance, especially missile systems, which have managed to disrupt or destroy Russian logistics, artillery, command posts, thereby creating many problems for the Russians in their territories. Hodges called the merit of the Ukrainian General Staff and the Armed Forces of Ukraine the third factor.

«I think, obviously, Moscow is puzzled. It's probably a shock. I think that in this system, accurate information never reached the top. Therefore, it is possible that people in the Kremlin and at different levels had different views on what was really happening. Therefore, I think that, probably, somewhat biased conclusions were drawn regarding how much the Russian army is better than the APU & # 187;, & # 8212; Hodges emphasized.

At the same time, the general does not exclude that against the background of his defeat, Russia will begin to strike at Kyiv. According to him, «the Russians have no choice but to continue trying to kill innocent people by firing rockets at residential areas».

«Because they cannot with the help of ground forces to stop the Armed Forces of Ukraine. Russian aviation is almost invisible, and the Russian fleet is hiding behind the Crimea. So I just don't see a strong possibility of any major fighting. And so the Russians will try to compensate for this by launching missiles until they run out completely, or they are stopped», — he concluded.

  • Ben Hodges urged the world to prepare for the collapse of Russia.
