A possible threat of a second attack

It will be recalled that the commander-in-chief of the Ukrainian Armed Forces 

Valery Zaluzhnyi

 warned in the fall that Russia is preparing for a new offensive against Ukraine.

According to him, for this purpose, the head of the Kremlin, Putin, is gathering a group of up to 200,000 troops, which he can launch into the offensive in February or spring. 

The Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation confirmed preparations for new offensive actions in Ukraine.

As the Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation, Serhiy Shoigu, explained, the Russian Federation conducted a partial mobilization for this very reason.

Meanwhile, British intelligence notes that it is likely that Russia is trying to resume major offensive operations in Ukraine from early January 2023.

The occupiers want to capture the rest of the Ukrainian-controlled part of the Donetsk region.
