The new Ukrainian army commander talks about the “extremely difficult” situation on the Eastern Front | Ukraine-Russia war

to updateThe new Commander of the Ukrainian Army Oleksandr Sersky and Ukrainian Defense Minister Rustam Omerov visited the most difficult areas of the Eastern Front. They described the situation on the ground as “very complex and tense.”

“The operational situation is very difficult and tense. The Russian occupiers continue to increase their efforts and outnumber Ukrainian forces,” Sersky wrote on the Telegram messaging service.

Ukraine is struggling to replenish its military ranks, and US military aid, which the country needs to confront the Russians, remains blocked.

We are taking all possible measures to minimize our losses and save the lives of our soldiers

Sersky emphasized: “We are doing everything in our power to prevent the enemy from advancing on our territory and to preserve our positions.” He added: “We are taking all possible measures to reduce our losses and save the lives of our soldiers.”

“The Russian Air Force makes extensive use of guided bombs, and Ukrainian positions are constantly bombarded by Russian artillery,” he explains.

Ukrainian units are at risk of encirclement. Nearly 1,000 civilians are reportedly still detained in the badly damaged industrial city in Ukraine's eastern Donetsk region, where Ukraine has been fending off a Russian invasion for almost two years. Russia controls nearly a fifth of Ukraine's territory, including the Crimean Peninsula in the Black Sea, which it annexed in 2014.

Volodymyr Zelensky previously described the new army commander as “Ukraine's most experienced general.” He pointed out that Sersky had been in command of the defense of Kiev for almost two years, at the beginning of the Russian invasion. He also led the counteroffensive in the Kharkiv region in the fall of 2022.

After his appointment, the Ukrainian president immediately instructed Sersky to draw up a “realistic” battle plan against Russia for the rest of the year that “takes into account the real situation on the battlefield and future prospects.”

Russia has already lost more than 3,000 tanks in Ukraine, but can “sustain heavy losses for another three years.”
