"Krynky is ours", "Krynky is cleaned": this is the story of how Shoigu tries to pass off wishful thinking and informs Putin that, as they say, his order has been fulfilled and on the left bank of the Kherson region there is again only a Russian rag everywhere. But there is one but.

How Shoigu lied to Putin and why the Rashists ran across the field against the background of a Russian rag - see Viktoria Hnatiuk in an exclusive TSN.ua interview.

Putin urgently needs "successes"

The dictator urgently needs at least some victories on the front, because the elections are "on the nose", "Kiev in 3 days" is just around the corner, and it is necessary to show people the "liberation" of at least one village. The Führer spares neither money nor soldiers for this. 

Let us remind you that the Russians killed at least 17,000 of their soldiers with butchery assaults in Avdiivka alone - corpses that are even recognized by the Russian soldiers, and if even they recognize such numbers, you can confidently multiply by three, and this is not counting the three hundred who in they can also get into black bags at any moment.

After the Armed Forces retreated from Avdiivka to save the lives of the soldiers, Putin gave the order to capture several more cities, probably: Kupyansk, Maryinka, Chasiv Yar and Krynka. There is not much time before the elections, and there are also successes. And here Putin summons Shoigu for a report. Well, he reported that "everything went according to plan" and Krynka on the left bank of the Kherson Region was, they say, "recaptured" by the ZSU. 

And therefore there was nothing left but to expose the soldiers on the ruins incognito with the tricolor and loudly declare that Krynyk "liberated". Putin's soldiers recorded a video for the Führer from the heart. And they did not miss, Putin believed, but this is not certain either, because during the interview he spoke about Krynky somewhat uncertainly. 

There is a but

Gauleiter Saldo also flaunted these videos a lot. The video, by the way, has some truth, the flag was indeed installed, but there is a nuance... Ukrainian marines showed what was left behind. 

"Just take a look at how they "cleanse" the village, which as many as five are burning. Putin, of course, has not seen these videos, but Shoigu's report, it seems, did not impress him either, the Kremlin dictator, nervously fiddling with his pen, ordered to hold his position and to convey his "request" to all commanders. 

In a word, the Armed Forces reacted to Putin's meeting and the demonstration video with the tricolor allegedly in Krynk. Also, the Armed Forces of Ukraine stated that the Russians really tried to storm the position, but it did not work out. 

Budanov's statement

We will remind you that the Ukrainian military was able to seize the bridgehead on the left bank of the Dnieper in the area of ​​the village of Krynky in the fall of 2023. Since then, despite the difficulty of supplying units in this village and the impossibility of transporting heavy equipment across the Dnipro, the soldiers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine have held these positions. So the Russians can push their fakes as much as they want, their "people" "hide" as always. Meanwhile, during an interview with The Wall Street Journal, the head of GUR Budanov said that the Russians "do not have the strength" to seize Donetsk and Luhansk regions this year. And he noted that it took the Russian army almost two years of heavy assaults from the start of the full-scale invasion to take Avdiivka.  

"Is this the success of the great powerful Russian army?"

There is a shortage of weapons in Russia

Although in fact, the Russians have not given up hope of taking Avdiivka since 2014. At the same time, Budanov admitted that the Armed Forces of Ukraine are currently in a difficult situation due to a lack of weapons and personnel, "but Russia also has problems" and everything is far from as smooth as propagandists predict from the zombie apocalypse. poorly trained soldiers, and they spend more shells and tanks than they produce, and the Russians, according to Budanov, lack missiles.

"In recent weeks, missile strikes on Ukrainian cities have stopped because Russian supplies have run out."

When the counterattack can begin

Although in 2023, Russia put hundreds of tanks into service with its army, most of them, as Kyrylo Budanov emphasizes, were old models taken from the warehouse and repaired, while only 178 tanks were new. Meanwhile, Western officials and analysts call Budanov's statements the optimal scenario for Ukraine this year, the publication writes. They concluded that if Ukraine could wage a smart defensive battle, wearing down Russian forces but simultaneously rebuilding its own forces, then another counteroffensive could begin in 2025. 

"Will the partners be ready to provide us with weapons and ammunition for the whole year while we prepare for a new counteroffensive or not? It's an interesting question."

Earlier it was said that the occupying forces intend to resume active offensive actions in the direction of Kupyansk and Chasovoy Yar. It is also about repeated attempts to go in the direction of Ugledar.
