Mykhailo Kryzhanivskyi, Lieutenant Colonel of the National Guard of Ukraine (NGU), commander of the 4th operational battalion of the Rubizh brigade, notes that Russia’s offensive and assault actions will definitely continue and a new direction may open up at any moment

He shared the information on Espreso TV.

"Today the situation on the front line remains difficult. The enemy keeps trying to conduct offensive and assault operations in certain areas along the combat line. Moreover, due to weather conditions, logistics on both sides have deteriorated, but despite this, the Ukrainian Defense Forces are steadfastly holding their positions and repelling enemy attacks, taking into account the invaders' advantage in ammunition and artillery. The situation is critical, but under control," commented the commander of the 4th operational battalion of the Rubizh brigade.

According to him, there should not be assumptions that Russia’s offensive potential has been exhausted, because another direction can be activated at any moment.

"We shouldn't expect Russia to stop its offensive campaign in the winter, as winter is still ongoing. Judging by the situation at the front, it is possible that some new direction will open up, so the enemy's offensive and assault actions will definitely continue. The enemy is not losing its potential," noted the NGU lieutenant colonel.

  • On January 11, Ukraine’s General Staff reported that the Ukrainian Armed Forces repelled Russian attacks on the Kupyansk, Lyman, Bakhmut, Avdiivka, Marinka and Zaporizhzhia directions over the past day, and eliminated 830 Russian soldiers.
  • Ukrainian intelligence also named the number of Russian ground troops on the territory of Ukraine: as of January 2024, 462,000 Russian occupiers are fighting on the territory of Ukraine. Russia has concentrated all its ground forces in Ukraine.
