The situation in Ukraine today, 02.11.2022: the former commander of the ATO Zabrodsky predicted the creation of powerful strike groups of the RF Armed Forces
General and former commander of the ATO Mikhail Zabrodsky believes that in the Zaporozhye and Sumy directions of the RF Armed Forces, two strong groupings of troops can be trained already in 2023.
The purpose of the creation of these groupings is to “cut” the territory of Ukraine into two parts by counter strikes by troops, the general explained. The first direction of attack from the north will be carried out by attacking Sumy, Poltava and the Dnieper, and from the south to Zaporozhye and the Dnieper.
As a result, as Zabrodsky emphasized, the RF Armed Forces will simply encircle the Armed Forces of Ukraine on the left bank of the Dnieper. In addition, the implementation of such a plan will give the RF Armed Forces the opportunity to block the logistics of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
In order to prevent such a development of events, Zabrodsky recommended that Kyiv and the command of the Armed Forces of Ukraine form new operational groupings of troops just in the Sumy regions and east of Zaporozhye.
Each of them should have 4-5 combined arms, 2-3 tank and 1-2 artillery brigades, have weapons of up to 600 tanks, 1100 armored personnel carriers and infantry fighting vehicles, 500 artillery pieces and MLRS.
