After reports of successful counter-offensive actions of the Armed Forces of Ukraine in the Kharkiv direction, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation began to show a video with columns of Russian equipment that are going to “rescue” the occupiers in this sector of the front. The Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense believes that this is a “picture” for domestic consumers in the Russian Federation.

The representative of the Main Intelligence Directorate, Andrey Yusov, on the air of the telethon, noted that the counter-offensive operation continues, and not only in the Kharkiv region, but also in other directions. Nevertheless, according to him, the attention of the whole world is riveted on the situation in the Kharkiv region, and many people are surprised – especially the Russians, who for some reason believed that they should not expect any active actions from the Ukrainian forces there.
“Today we see columns of Russian equipment that are moving to save the retreating enemy troops in the Kharkiv direction, but this is rather a response to the systematic actions of the Ukrainian army. This does not stop Ukraine in any way. As they say, it will continue,” Yusov said.
Commenting on the video with a large amount of Russian equipment moving towards the Kharkiv direction, Yusov said that with such personnel, the Russian Defense Ministry, first of all, solves its own image and information problems, since it talked about the alleged failures of the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the battlefield for too long, after which it faced counteroffensive.
Yusov stressed that this is not a secret movement of equipment – the Russian Federation focuses on media coverage of the transfer of troops, as at a parade in Moscow.
“This picture is primarily for the Russian audience. Putin trying to save some of his reputation and show that he is in control of the situation. We have already proven that no, it does not control,” said the representative of the GUR.
Today, the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation showed three videos of the movement of Russian equipment at once:
- Since the beginning of the week, Ukrainian forces have liberated more than 20 settlements in the Kharkiv direction and penetrated 50 km deep into the enemy’s defenses.
- Since September 1, the Armed Forces of Ukraine have liberated more than 1,000 sq. km of territories in different directions – these are dozens of settlements.
