The expert noted that frosts will bind the soil and the ground will be completely passable for wheeled equipment. This can be used by both the Armed Forces and the occupiers.
As a result of the first serious frosts, which, according to the forecasters, will come in the next week or two, the ground will become passable for military equipment, so the Russians will be able to try to go on the offensive.
This was stated by military expert Yuriy Fedorov, the channel informs FREEDOM.
The expert does not rule out that the occupiers will try to intensify their offensive in the Donetsk direction. And he does not know anything about the plans of the Armed Forces, but Fedorov does not rule out that the Ukrainian army will also resort to offensive actions.
“The frosts are binding the ground and it will already be quite passable, the soil for wheeled vehicles, I’m not talking about tracked vehicles. Both sides will probably carry out offensive operations. To begin with, it is quite possible to assume the strengthening of the actions of Russian troops on the Donetsk front. As for the Armed Forces, it is much more difficult to make forecasts here. Because we do not know the plans of the General Staff of the Armed Forces, and that is good. Such plans should be kept secret until they start to be implemented in practice,” said the expert.
