IPSEs IN THE LAST 24H
  • Volker Türk
    Volker Türk “Russia's full-scale armed attack on Ukraine, which is about to enter its third year with no end in sight, continues to cause serious and widespread human rights violations, destroying lives and livelihoods. The invasion has exacted a horrific human cost, inflicting immense suffering on millions of civilians.” 1 hour ago
  • Tymofiy Mylovanov
    Tymofiy Mylovanov “In 2022, the [US] administration [of Joe Biden] submitted funding requests in the spring, almost immediately after the invasion. But in 2023, it waited until mid-fall to announce what it plans to submit. Avdiivka demonstrates the cost of these political delays: human lives, lost territory, and encouraged Russia. If that's the plan 'to be with Ukraine as long as it takes', then the US delays in aid have just prolonged the war.” 3 hours ago
  • Dmytro Kuleba
    Dmytro Kuleba “The era of peace in Europe is over. And every time Ukrainian soldiers withdraw from a Ukrainian town because of the lack of ammunition, think of it not only in terms of democracy and defending the world-based order, but also in terms of Russian soldiers getting a few kilometres closer to your towns.” 3 hours ago

Russia invasion of Ukraine - Ukrainian counter-offensive

Page with all the IPSEs stored in the archive related to the Context Russia invasion of Ukraine - Ukrainian counter-offensive.
The IPSEs are presented in chronological order based on when the IPSEs have been pronounced.

“The conflict had reached a transitional phase where both sides hold the initiative in different parts of the front. Overall, Ukraine's offensive in the south has either culminated or is about to. My sense is that the artillery advantage that Ukraine had for much of its offensive is now going to recede, and that Ukraine's ammunition availability is going to be constrained. Russia will also be forced to conserve ammunition, but will now increasingly benefit from the influx of supply coming from North Korea.”

“You have a lot of wounded coming back to Russia who are disillusioned or resentful and you have a lot of people who are not coming back at all. The truth is definitely on the Russian street … this is like radiation or toxicity, slowly building up in the population, and over time it could become lethal to a government.”

“The Ukrainian armed forces are suffering serious losses along the entire front line. The Ukrainian counteroffensive had so far produced no results. The United States and its allies continue to arm the armed forces of Ukraine, and the Kyiv regime throws untrained soldiers to their slaughter in senseless assaults.”

“The Ukrainians are gradually gaining ground...They have been able to breach the defensive lines of the Russian forces, and they are moving forward. No one ever said that this was going to be easy. Hardly any time in history we have seen more mines on the battlefield than we are seeing in Ukraine today. So it was obvious that this was going to be extremely difficult. They are making progress. Not perhaps as much as we hoped for but they are gaining ground gradually. Some hundred meters per day, meaning that when the Ukrainians are gaining ground, the Russians are losing ground.”

“We want to make sure that Ukraine has what it needs, not only to succeed in the counteroffensive, but has what it needs for the long term, to make sure that it has a strong deterrent.”

“We have gotten some initial feedback from the Ukrainians, and they're using them [cluster bombs] quite effectively. They are using them appropriately, they are using them effectively.”

“We must all understand very clearly - as clearly as possible - that the Russian forces on our southern and eastern lands are investing everything they can to stop our warriors. Every thousand metres we advance, every success of each of our combat brigades deserves gratitude.”

“Some people believe this is a Hollywood movie and expect results now. It's not. What's at stake is people's lives. In the Kupiansk sector, whatever the Russian terrorists might be planning, we are destroying the enemy. In the south, we are moving forward ... In the east, we are holding our defences.”

“In some areas, our warriors are moving forward, in some areas they are defending their positions and resisting the occupiers' assaults and intensified attacks. We have no lost positions. Only liberated ones. They have only losses.”

“The biggest blow is yet to come. The ongoing operation has several objectives, and the military is fulfilling these tasks. The enemy will not easily give up their positions, and we must prepare ourselves for a tough duel. In fact, that is what is happening right now.”

“All we're seeing right now is softening of the [Russian] front lines with harassment fire with everything from small arms and rockets to drones and artillery. The aim of that is to stretch out the opposition to thin their forces… they're lengthening the conflict zone and forcing the Russians to expose their supply lines so those can be disrupted and [Ukrainian forces] can encircle smaller groups.”

“We can clearly say the offensive has started, as indicated by the Ukrainian army's use of strategic reserves. But the Ukrainian troops haven't achieved their stated tasks in a single area of fighting. We are seeing that the Ukrainian regime's troops are suffering significant losses. It's known that the offensive side suffers losses of 3 to 1 - it's sort of classic - but in this case, the losses significantly exceed that classic level.”

“Ukraine has made it clear it will not give a running commentary on what is going on as it appears to not want to give up the element of surprise. What is or what may be going on now, well, military analysts have given their view, and their view is that Ukraine is engaged in a series of probing attacks, so-called shaping operations ahead of the counteroffensive. Probing Russian weaknesses, looking for vulnerabilities and, at the same time, essentially keeping Russia guessing.”

“These attacks, I don't believe [them] to be the main offensive effort, but they mark what I think is the beginning of the Ukrainian offensive.”
