The Ukrainian Armed Forces launched a counteroffensive, in particular, to break the land corridor to the occupied Crimea and reach the coast of the Sea of Azov.

What will happen if this task cannot be fulfilled by the Ukrainian military, Yevhen Dykyi, the ex-commander of the Aidar battalion, told Channel 24.

"If we fail to break through their line of defense, there is such a risk. We must understand that the resources with which we started this campaign are actually not enough. They understand the significance of this campaign. They are now instructed to throw all their reserves there. If we do not break through, our problem will be a change in the mood of our allies," suggests Wild.

According to him, in the fall Russia will try to mobilize another 300-400 thousand Russians.

"Battle draw"

Yevhen Dykyi warns that Putin's regime is trying to convince the West of the need to end hostilities and negotiations.

According to him, now the Russians are spreading narratives about a "battle draw". Russia is trying to convince everyone that Ukraine should be put at the negotiating table and freeze the war. In this way, the Kremlin seeks to bargain time for itself to prepare for a new war.

"This is a catastrophic option. For us, this means losing the war. The Russians understand this perfectly. This is the Chechen version, when they lost the First War in Chechnya, signed peace, but solely to buy time and prepare for the Second Chechen War. This is a gain of time to finally destroy us," the soldier explained.

Earlier, Yevhen Dykyi predicted when the Armed Forces of Ukraine would be able to break through the second line of defense of the Russians. He also explained that he determines the pace of the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.
