The head of the Ministry of Defense quoted the opinion of experts who believe that in order to carry out an offensive, and not just defense, one needs to have more forces than an opponent. And they asked the question: does Ukraine have such a balance of forces today, does the Ministry of Defense plan to form such a positive balance of forces with the help of mobilization.
Reznikov replied that he would like to enter into a discussion with experts who say that only the balance of power can have an effect.
“I have two very close friends, they are also friends of Ukraine – these are two defense secretaries Ben Wallace and Lloyd Austin. Both of them told me that the Russians are using the tactics of “meat grinder”, a huge resource that is trying to defeat you with pressure, hordes. “If you try to fight them with similar tactics, you will not win and we will not be able to help you.” Therefore, we must apply and use non-standard approaches with you,” the Minister of Defense said.
He explained that the Armed Forces of Ukraine must surpass the Russian invaders in terms of the quality of the use of forces and means, skill, and strikes.
Reznikov gave an example of the accuracy of the use of the first two HIMARS systems by the Armed Forces of Ukraine and, as a result, the transfer of 16 of these missile systems by the United States to Ukraine.
“Therefore, our task is to make this advantage not by the number of soldiers, tanks, but by the quality and range of defeats,” the head of the Defense Ministry said.
