This year 2024 will probably be a time of defense at the front for Ukraine.

In a favorable scenario, local actions with minor tactical successes are also possible.

This opinion was expressed by Oleksandr Musienko, head of the Center for Military and Legal Studies, in a comment to RBC-Ukraine.

He noted that it is difficult to predict changes on the front, as it is unclear how long the issue with funding from the US will drag on.

However, in general, in his opinion, Ukraine will be on the defensive in 2024.

"Given what we have on the front, we understand that we simply will not have time to prepare a large-scale offensive with the liberation of significant territories. The only thing we can count on is that in a favorable scenario, if aid from the United States is voted in the near future, we will receive packages for the second half of 2024. And then local actions with minor tactical successes are possible. But taking into account recent trends, I think this year can really be a year of defense," Musienko said.

We will remind you that earlier, the head of the Ukrainian Ministry of Defense Kyrylo Budanov said in an interview with The Wall Street Journal that the counteroffensive of the Armed Forces in the summer of 2023 was not as successful as expected.

However, Ukraine will be able to mount a new counteroffensive again in 2025.

According to him, a lot depends on whether the US will be ready to provide Ukraine with "supplies for the whole year while we prepare."
