Ukraine’s counteroffensive is running out of time
Top US General Mark Milley has warned Ukrainian forces that they’ve got about 6 weeks before the onset of winter will slow their counteroffensive. Milley said from November, rain and mud will bog things down, but “there is still a reasonable amount of time, about 30 to 45 days’ worth of fighting weather left”. It’s an important deadline because Ukraine’s concerted effort to push Russia back has entered a 4th month, and reports are flying about its sluggish progress. Last week, Russian President Vladimir Putin said the counteroffensive “has failed, not stalled”. But Ukraine’s Ministry of Defence reported gains in the country’s east. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s head of military intelligence, Kyrylo Budanov, says they’ll push into winter. “Hostilities will continue, the counteroffensive will continue,” he said.
