Colonel Cassad: The Ukrainian military’s planned offensive

By Colonel Cassad

August 21: According to [Donetsk Deputy Defense Minister Eduard] Basurin, the total number of offensive forces of Ukrainian troops is:

Personnel – More than 90,000 troops
Tanks – About 450 units
BMP (Armored Personnel Carriers) -More than 2,500 units
5 “Tochka –U” rocket launcher complexes
230 Multiple Launch Rocket Systems (MLRS) approx.
Artillery guns and mortars – More than 1,000 units
Anti-tank weapons -More than 3,500 units

P.S. Over the last two days, the intensity of fighting has declined slightly (probably due to alerts from the Donetsk and Lugansk People’s Republics, as well as the reaction from Moscow and Berlin). However, while the situation cooled, it has not stopped.

From the map, it appears that the junta wants to carry out the operation in the spirit of the defeat of Serbian Krajina by Croatian forces.

I believe the intentions of the Ukrainian command in practice will be less ambitious.
