BY THE NUMBERS: Russia’s Coming Ukrainian Onslaught Revealed
But will it work?
As the Russian army’s attempts to take over Ukraine continue to fail miserably, the Kremlin is loading up the military machine for one likely final push to gain some ground before the glut of western equipment and tanks arrive.
The Kremlin’s fighting force has been stonewalled at just about every turn thus far, and even beaten back viciously enough for Ukrainian politicians to openly suggest that they’ll be considering recapturing Crimea in the coming weeks.
Now, on the border, Vladimir Putin’s last ditch barrage of bodies lies in wait.
RUSSIA has hundreds of thousands of soldiers, thousands of tanks, and hundreds of warplanes preparing for a new assault, Ukraine has warned.
Vladimir Putin is believed to be preparing for a massive new offensive in the coming weeks to coincide with the first anniversary of the war in February 24.
The numbers are simply stunning.
Russia is believed to be massing 1,800 tanks, 3,950 armoured vehicles, 400 fighter jets and 300 helicopters for the attack, according to a Ukrainian official.
They added Putin is also gathering 2,700 artillery guns and 810 rocket launchers for a “new wave of attacks”, reports Foreign Policy.
“It’s much bigger than what took place in the first wave,” the official said.
“They are not paying attention to any casualties or losses. In the next 10 days, we expect a new, huge invasion.”
Ukrainian intelligence has put the figure for the spring offensive at between 300,000 and 500,000 soldiers.
Russia is believed to have approximately 300,000 troops already operating in Ukraine.
And it’s believed another 200,000 men from the recent mobilisations will be called up to fight in the offensive.
Recent Russian conscripts have loudly protested their deployments, suggesting not only that their commanders have no idea what they are doing, but that Putin’s entire premise was to use them as cannon fodder on the front lines.
With morale like that, there’s no telling what sort of troops are next in line.
