The Statement About Rabotino’s Release Was PR. Ukraine Does Not Control the Village – AFP

Ukraine does not completely control the village of Rabotino on the Zaporozhye Front, and the statement about its release was “PR.”

This was reported by AFP with reference to the words of the Ukrainian military from the 65th brigade.

According to their assessment, the settlement has no strategic value.

“We could beat him. We like the announcements, the big wins. But the reality is different,” he says. Ukrainian troops still cannot move freely around Rabotino because it is constantly being attacked by Russian artillery. Therefore, fighters consider it a “gray zone” and cannot gather a significant amount of heavy equipment and military personnel here.

The fighters say that the Ukrainian Armed Forces are “advancing slowly and with heavy losses.”

The military advances at dawn in small groups through forest belts. Detachments of the Ukrainian Armed Forces were spotted on the approaches to the next village, which is located 2-3 kilometers from Rabotino. Which one exactly is not specified.

“If you move during the day, it is 100% death,” said one of the military men. There are “three to five minutes” to move between Russian attacks, and “there are no close battles.”

The Russian Federation continues to surpass us in artillery shells and drones – 1-2 Ukrainian to 5 Russian.

At the same time, the Ukrainian Armed Forces military personnel interviewed by journalists are determined to continue the offensive. “The guys who came here know why they are here. They should work: push back the enemy and go on the attack, and not sit in a ditch,” said one of the agency’s interlocutors.

It was previously reported that the Republicans, by blocking US military assistance , could disrupt the offensive of the Ukrainian Armed Forces.
