Gen. Ben Hodges on Ukraine's counteroffensive: We could never have achieved such success with such limited military resources
Former U.S. Army Commander in Europe Ben Hodges believes that the Ukrainian forces have analyzed everything correctly and changed their tactics on the battlefield
He said this on the Espreso TV channel.
"I am sure that General Zaluzhnyi and the Ukrainian military command have done everything they could to achieve such results at the front. We would never have been able to achieve such a success operating in such conditions with limited military resources," he said.
According to him, the Ukrainian Armed Forces' counteroffensive has been a significant success, despite problems with the supply of military equipment.
"It's hard to act when the next equipment supply is expected and everyone waits for the need to act quickly. You can ask the commander of the Black Sea Fleet what he thinks about the counteroffensive and he will say that everything is going great. After all, we saw what happened to the Russian Black Sea Fleet. They were fleeing because they were being pushed out in the Black Sea. This is the success of the counteroffensive," Hodges summarized.
- On December 6, Ukraine's Defense Minister Rustem Umerov said that the Ukrainian army had crossed two defense lines of Russian troops and back then was between the second and third.
