The Russian president Vladimir Putin prepares a new attack on Ukrainewhich may begin in February-March, writes the Bloomberg agency citing Kremlin imgs (in the article Putin Plans New Ukraine Push Despite Losses as He Prepares for Years of War).
According to these imgs, Putin will seek to show that the Russian military can retake the initiative after several months of setbacks and pressure Kyiv and its allies to agree to a ceasefire that would allow Russia to maintain control over the territories it occupied.
Even Putin cannot deny the weakness of the armed forces, which took decades to build, the agency’s imgs said, noting that the continued failures have forced “many in the Kremlin to take a more realistic view of their immediate ambitions, admitting, that it would be an achievement to maintain the existing front line.’
A new wave of conscription is likely to begin in the spring
Putin still believes that larger forces and preparedness for significant casualties will enable him to win, the agency’s imgs said, adding that a new wave of recruitment could begin in the spring.
The statements by Bloomberg’s imgs confirm warnings by Ukraine and its allies of an imminent Russian offensive, which could begin before Kyiv receives the tanks promised by the US and Europe.
It is expected that the Leopard 2 tanks will be delivered to Ukraine in late March to early April. German Defense Minister Boris Pistorius had also mentioned this. Exact timetables for the delivery of the Abrams tanks from the US have not been shared, but according to US media, their delivery will take months.
