Russian forces near Kupyansk: NSDC calls Forbes statistics different from reality
The head of the National Security and Defense Council's Center for Countering Disinformation, Lieutenant Andriy Kovalenko, said that Russia is indeed concentrating significant forces near Kupyansk in Kharkiv region, but the statistics provided by Forbes differ from reality
He wrote about this on Telegram.
"The enemy is indeed concentrating significant forces near Kupyansk. But the statistics provided by Forbes are somewhat different from reality," he said.
However, according to Kovalenko, it is necessary for the West to understand the seriousness of the situation, especially those who make decisions on aid. He added that it is also important "to keep American interests in mind."
"It is utopian to think that everything can be resolved by December 2024 if Ukraine is in a weaker position, as some presidential candidates may think. On the contrary, then more weapons will have to be given and quickly, because Putin will never agree to conditions. His goal is to destroy Ukraine. And it is possible to force him to agree to any conditions only by force, not by weakness," the head of the NSDC's Center for Countering Disinformation emphasized.
The day before, Forbes wrote that the Russian army has probably prepared at least 500 tanks for possible offensive actions in the Kharkiv region. They will try to capture Kupyansk by March 2024. Ukraine responses.
