The advisor of the Office of the President Oleksiy Arestovych said that the situation on the entire front line in Ukraine is in the phase of operational-tactical pressure of the Russian troops.

OP's adviser told about this in a conversation with the Russian oppositionist, lawyer Mark Feigin.

According to him, the occupiers intensified their efforts in Donetsk region and Luhansk region.

"If we characterize the situation not on the ground along the entire front line, then now is the phase of such operational and tactical

pressure of the Russian troops in the directions

. That is, they intensified the efforts that they used already in the area, for example, in the Donetsk and Luhansk regions. The Donetsk front is especially so. Well , and here is this activity on the Great Potemkin Island opposite Kherson. Once again striking my imagination with the "talent" of the Russian command,

they are in the phase of trying to conduct offensive actions

, "Arestovich said.

At the same time, the Armed Forces are currently on the defensive.

"

Accordingly, we do not advance anywhere, we defend ourselves,

happily burning the enemy's infantry, equipment and everything else in those areas where they are trying to advance. It is clear that the soldiers on the spot are not very happy. In general, they are pressing, and we are fighting back," he described the situation at the front, an adviser to the OP.

He also noted that the Russian invaders had serious problems with ammunition near Bakhmut.

"An interesting fact:

the number of uses of Russian artillery is decreasing near Bakhmut.

Significantly so. Obviously, they are experiencing very serious problems with ammunition and the material part. Mainly aviation, tanks and tanks are working as artillery," Arestovych said.

"

The main motto of what is happening is stupidity and courage

. The Russian army is heroically running to the prepared (Ukrainian - ed.) defense. Well, in a sense, we thank it for this, because with each such raid it becomes less and less." , - added the adviser of the presidential office.

It will be recalled that the General Staff of the Armed Forces of Ukraine reported on the evening of December 8 that the Russian army is concentrating its main efforts on conducting offensive actions in the Bakhmut and Avdiiv directions.

At the same time, the enemy is defending itself in the Kherson direction.

According to military expert Oleg Zhdanov, the Russian troops in Donbas can no longer change the main vector of the offensive and have gone all-in: they are unable to either stop and transfer forces to another direction, or advance, because they are losing fighters.

Note that the Russian army currently has the advantage in terms of artillery and manpower.

It is impossible to change this, because the Russian Federation is a resource country, said Roman Kostenko, a soldier of the Armed Forces and secretary of the defense committee of the parliament.
