It is likely that successful counterattacks by Ukraine will damage the ability of Russian troops to resume the attack on Kyiv.
Ukraine is stepping up pressure on Russian troops northeast of Kyiv. Along that axis, enemy forces face significant challenges. Namely – with the supply and morale.
This is reported in British intelligence, describing the situation regarding the Russian invasion as of March 23.
British intelligence stressed that our Armed Forces were successfully counterattacking Russian positions in cities near the capital, and probably regained Makariv and Moshchun.
“There is a real possibility that Ukrainian forces may now surround Russian units in Bucha and Irpen,” the statement said.
On the same day, the Bucha City Council announced that Ukrainian defenders were able to capture Irpin, Bucha and Gostomel. Unfortunately, many nearby villages are still under occupation.
“It is likely that successful counterattacks by Ukraine will damage the ability of Russian troops to reorganize and resume the offensive on Kyiv,” – said in London.
