Ukrainian troops can withdraw forces for the fourth counteroffensive. This time in Zaporizhzhia region.

About this reports Forbes columnist David Ax.

“According to Russian sources, the Ukrainian army is withdrawing mechanized forces around Gulyaipol. If this is true, it may be a sign that Ukraine’s fourth counteroffensive may begin despite the onset of winter.”– the publication declares.

As noted, this long-awaited attack will be aimed at liberating most of southern Ukraine and pushing Russian troops to the narrow isthmus connecting mainland Ukraine with the Crimean peninsula, which Russian forces captured in 2014.

In particular, to liberate Melitopol, then turn right and liberate eastern Kherson Oblast on the left bank of the Dnieper, Ukrainian troops must advance 200 miles and defeat a dozen or more Russian brigades and regiments.

“Ukrainian armed forces need to concentrate a lot of forces so that the Zaporizhia offensive is crowned with success. There is a high probability that the Russians will see the troops massing for a strike and will try to launch a pre-emptive strike with artillery.”– they write in Forbes.

At the same time, as many experts stated, the main blow of the Armed Forces of Ukraine will be delivered to Melitopol with the aim of cutting off the “land corridor” to Crimea.

We will recall that Reznikov predicted when the Defense Forces would resume an active counteroffensive.

Previously, ISW stated that the ability of the Ukrainian military to maintain superiority over the enemy and continue to succeed on the battlefield in the winter depends on how consistent the Defense Forces are in their operations.

Analysts also noted that the pace of advancement of Ukrainian defenders in the Luhansk region will be facilitated by the frost.
