Ukraine has its own plan for the liberation of the occupied territories and will continue to act according to it. The plan was approved by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief.
This is reported by “РБК-Україна” with reference to the statement of the adviser to the head of the Presidential Office Mykhailo Podolyak on the air of the national telethon.
“We cannot comment on Shoigu’s statements, because they are a bit strange. Let’s dot the i’s and cross the t’s. First, we have our own plan approved by the Supreme Commander-in-Chief, we have our own scenario of liberation of the territories. Today, administrations were established on the left bank of Kherson region. This means that we will continue to act according to our plan,” said Podoliak.
According to him, there is another component. It was difficult for the Russians to defend Kherson, because it was difficult to deliver ammunition and other things there, but in recent weeks they have been bringing mobilized soldiers there, they mined the city, created firing points. They were preparing the city for a tough war.
“The third component is to create fortifications on the left bank of the Dnipro, to hold Kherson from there. And most likely they will not be able to hold it, but if they cannot hold it, they will destroy it as much as possible from the left bank. That is, they will still try hard to hold on to Kherson region,” Podolyak added.
The adviser to the head of the Presidential Office believes that all the statements of the Russians are more of an information-propaganda campaign designed for the domestic market of the Russian Federation. Podoliak emphasizes that everything is going according to plan, and they have only one plan – to leave all the occupied territories of Ukraine. Therefore, they are preparing their society for the fact that it will be a “victory”. He added that when the Russians come to the left bank of the Dnipro, it will be a victory for them, because they “stopped the superior NATO forces“.
“So let’s do this: we are going according to the plan, we are creating administrations, we are moving in the southern and other directions, we will do the work that we have to do, minimizing losses among the military,” Podoliak added.
