Ukraine will launch its offensive by April 30, anniversary of Hitler’s death – Newsweek
AHMED ADEL for INFOBRICS
A lot has been said about Ukraine’s expected spring offensive, with many Western analysts predicting that it will soon begin. In fact, Newsweek cited the secret documents leaked on the Internet, which revealed that the US and its allies are aiming to launch Ukraine’s offensive by April 30, the anniversary of Adolf Hitler’s death.
Given that this timeframe is only days away, it seems unlikely that Ukraine will launch a major offensive because there is a lack of soldiers and weapons, such as fighter jets, air defence systems, tanks, armoured personnel carriers, and missiles. At the same time, Russian forces are likely readying themselves for the offensive, and to then also launch a counteroffensive.
Nevertheless, according to the Deputy Minister of Defence of Ukraine, Hanna Maliar, the Ukrainian army has already launched an offensive and it is wrong to wait for the announcement of a specific date. However, the Ukrainian army’s actions do not even resemble an offensive and it appears more like that they are trying to find weak points to attack in the future.
This task is made all the more difficult since offensives are usually preceded by artillery and airstrikes to soften defences. This has obviously not occurred, and will not occur in a major way since the Ukrainian military has lost nearly all of their fighter jets and artillery.
Given that Ukraine is not in a position to successfully launch an offensive, it is becoming increasingly evident that it is the US persistently pushing for an escalation. The West is seeking a justification to explain to their taxpayers why billions of dollars are propping up the Far-Right regime in Kiev instead of being used for domestic development. This is being done now by pretending that the Ukrainian military is on the cusp of victory.
For this purpose, Washington is pushing Ukraine to launch an offensive despite the fact that it can lead to the complete destruction of the Ukrainian army and a further loss of territory.
Western and Ukrainian media, as well as politicians, are also actively discussing the possible offensive to try and exert pressure and intimidate Russia. It is part of an informational and psychological war, and it is no coincidence that the dates of possible offensives are being publicly discussed.
The possible launch of the spring offensive on the very day of Adolf Hitler’s death is highly symbolic and points to the Kiev regimes extremist ideology. If Ukraine is to launch an offensive on this day, it can be interpreted as a primitive and pathetic attempt of revenge for the Soviet destruction of the Nazi regime in World War II.
Nonetheless, for all the hype during the winter about the upcoming offensive, many are sceptical that Ukraine will launch it because, as already said, the country’s military does not have enough soldiers and weapons.
According to the founder of Wagner Private Military Company, Yevgeny Prigozhin, the Ukrainian army is unlikely to stage an offensive because the conditions are still muddy, thus making fields and unpaved roads impassable.
“An offensive cannot be launched right now for quite understandable reasons: amid horrific slush and mud. Even pickup trucks cannot freely run on this terrain, let alone heavy vehicles and tanks. It will take some ten days for the ground to dry,” Prigozhin said.
More importantly though, launching an offensive in the modern era without air cover is effectively suicide. Ukraine now uses fighter jets that the US and its partners have sent, but the pilots have very little experience in operating them. Without fighter jets, whilst keeping in mind that all of Ukraine’s anti-aircraft weapons are destroyed, infantry do not have effective cover.
Most telling of the problems faced by the Ukrainian military is the fact that shells were set aside for the upcoming spring offensive, which caused frustration among troops being ground down in Artemivsk (Bakhmut). This revelation came as top Ukrainian officials have expressed their frustration on the slow delivery of weaponry and ammunition from the West.
Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba angrily lambasted the European Union for their slow delivery of the million artillery shells promised.
“The inability of the EU to implement its own decision on the joint procurement of ammunition for Ukraine is frustrating,” Kuleba wrote in a tweet on April 20. “This is a test of whether the EU has strategic autonomy in making new crucial security decisions. For Ukraine, the cost of inaction is measured in human lives.”
This is a fallacy since sending further weapons to Ukraine is not a demonstration of European autonomy but rather of European submission to Washington. Kuleba’s entitled outburst had the desired effect as the EU’s foreign policy chief, Joseph Borrell, rang him only a day later to promise that the bloc would “do its utmost to deliver, and deliver fast.”
Even if such a delivery is made, it does not increase the chances of success because Russia will just simply destroy all stockpiles, as it has already done on multiple occasions. For all the noise of an upcoming spring offensive, the summer is already fast approaching, meaning that it will either not occur, or it will be an utter failure because preparations are far from complete.
